Casa Sophia is an alternative energy four bedroom (+ studio) beachfront villa. A 3,500 square foot house set on an idyllic, privately owned five acre lot surrounded by tropical foliage and directly fronting on the gorgeous white sands of the Caribbean inside the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve.

Casa Sophia is located approximately 4 kms inside the Biosphere Reserve of Sian Ka'an, and is nestled between the world's second longest barrier reef, which is just at swimming distance, and the Campechen lagoon - which may be explored by kayak or boat.

The living room and entertainment areas of the villa provide open and spacious gathering areas that maximize the views of the lovely gardens, private pool, and ocean. The house functions well for larger families or families/couples traveling together.

Airy and well ventilated, Casa Sophia is cooled by constant trade breezes. Optional air conditioning can be provided in three of the Casa's 4 bedrooms (as well as the studio) for a weekly surcharge (see details).

LOVELY HOME...BUT BOY IS THE ROAD THERE ROUGH

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Casa Sophia for a week this December. The home is lovely and the staff is the BEST!! Be warned however, that the Boca Pailla road once you pass the arch in the Sian Kaan is TERRIBLE!! It doesn't improve with work either. You MUST have an SUV or high clearance vehicle to drive to this home. The pot holes are the width of the entire road and their depth measures in feet not inches.

That said, the home is great and has everything you could possibly need. The beach is reached by going down a set (about 20) of fairly steep stairs and the beach itself is very narrow with no room to place beach chairs above the water line (except in the foliage). However, you can walk a few yards either way and have room for a blanket or towel if you choose. The beach is totally secluded and in our week there, I think we only saw about 6 or 8 people walk by or in the water nearby.

Ladies...don't plan on bringing a hair dryer or curling iron to this home - it will not support the wattage needed to run either of those appliances, so just go au natural.

Our family had plenty of room to spread out and still each have our own "space". I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if the road to the house was better. With that said...we will be staying on the paved portion of the Tulum Beach road north of the Arch from now on. However, in all fairness...if you don't care about going out to dinner at night and are happy to stay in - this is a fantastic place (clean, beautiful, secluded, quite) and the staff is WONDERFUL!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing Casa Sophia for your family's vacation and we're delighted that you enjoyed the Casa and its wonderful staff!

Indeed, the 4 kms of dirt road inside the Reserve were in bad shape during your stay. This was due to the abnormally excessive amount of rainfall the region received during November & December prior to your arrival!

Typically the road gets graded periodically throughout the year, however the municipality chose to wait out the rainfall before attempting to regrade this time around.

We apologize for the road's condition (and the massive amount of rainfall before you arrived!) and want to assure you that should you decide to stay at Casa Sophia again the road will be in its usual condition of repair and accessibility.

Thank you again and we wish you a very Happy New Year!

A GREAT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful family getaway for us--plenty of room so each group had privacy yet so many spots to enjoy each other's company.
The home was clean and well maintained with all the amenities we wanted. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The location was great--out of the way, but close enough to venture out to see the sights.
We had most meals at the house but there are many restaurants right outside the biosphere grounds.
We've booked our stay here for next year already, so you can see we really loved it.
Thanks, Kelley, for all your help.

HIDDEN TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from an AMAZING trip to Tulum. The entire experience was truly a "once in a lifetime". The house is settled in the Sian Kian Biosphere and is a block away from the CESiaK Ecological Preserve. The staff at the hotel was so kind and helpful. We had daily housekeeping services and access to the restaurant daily. The biologists at the hotel provided us with a wonderful trip through the lagoon and also supervised the most phenomenal turtle watch we had seen. Their knowledge of the flora and fauna brought new appreciation for us all (especially the 11 year olds on the trip).

Casa Sofia is a beautiful home that is perfect for the multi-family get away. The pool is just steps from one of Tulum's white sand beaches and we found, to our surprise, that the pool was stocked with pool toys, beach stuff (boogie boards, sand castle necessities, life jackets and more). The palapa on the beach was the perfect place for the Adults to sit and watch the kids play in the ocean.

We CAN'T wait to get back to Mexico. We will definitely stay here again!!!

A WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We are so relaxed and happy after our wonderful week at Casa Sophia. Who knew that travelling with 3 families and 6 children could be so relaxing?! Only wish we could have stayed longer!

The house is huge and well appointed with everything one could need on vacation. We loved the pool, the beach, the restaurant at CESIAK next door, snorkeling out to the reef, margaritas on the roof and the super comfortable beds! The kids loved the swimming pool, the pool table, the DVD player and playing hide and seek in the huge house. Everything was so very clean too! We'll miss the gentle sound of the waves, the view from the roof, the iguanas and birds, and the peaceful/uncrowded beach. It was so nice to vacation away from the crazy resort scene of Cancun!

We can't wait for our next trip!
