I rented the Casita for a month from Jan-Feb this year. The pictures and description are not on the website but accurate pictures and description was sent to me via email promptly. There are two apartments on the property that are larger that are also for rent.
The property is set back off the main highway (307) just under 1km and into the town of Akumal its about 3kms.
I was without a vehicle for the first three weeks of my stay and found the collectivo an easy and inexpensive way to commute to Akumal Beach or any where along the highway between Playa Del Carmen and Tulum during the daytime. Because the property is off the beaten path a bit it is nice to have a car especially at night to travel between the property and restaurants in town. If walking back to the property at night bring along a torch/flashlight.
The Casita was cleaned thoroughly once a week by Wendy, and David maintains the grounds. David speaks some English and Wendy Spanish; if you don't speak spanish an spanish dictionary is helpful when communicating.
The kitchen comes with a fridge, microwave, blender,toaster and electric stove top burners and a drinkable water dispenser; pretty much everything you need in a kitchen.
Overall, a well priced accomodation for budgetminded travellers.
We lucked out on a last minute reservation. We were referred to Isabel via someone else who was full. Lucky for us it was literally across the street from one of my sister's best friend. We arrived and settled ourselves in very easily. The location is nowhere near the beach but is not a problem if you have a car. We didn't spend too much time at the condo but when we did felt at home. Most ofthe amenities were offered but it was missing a a few things, hairdryer, salt and pepper, and a broom. Isabel seems to have a good business running here. Thanks for the bubbly at new years!
We spent 10 fantastic weeks at Far Side Tara and loved every minute of it. The apartment is beautifully decorated with Isabel, the owner's, own paintings...she is a brilliant artist... and other lovely bits and pieces which make it stylish and comfortable. It is very light and airy with windows and fans that cool the air. Kitchen is well equipped, Shower is huge and the Beds are comfortable. The grounds are very private and it's like being in your own tropical paradise. Trees full of exotic birds and a huge swimming pool with many sunbeds and tables with umbrellas to sit at. Isobel is the most amazing hostess and great fun. Interesting to talk to, she involved us in any parties and gatherings she made and we became good friends. We had a wonderful time and would love to go back again. Thank you Isabel for making us so welcome.
We stayed at the Farside Tara over Christmas and had an absolutely fantastic time! Amenities are exactly as described. The place was very clean and comfortable, the pool and the bed beside the pool took relaxation to a whole new level. It is it's own little paradise surrounded by beautiful trees and tranquility. We felt incredibly safe and well taken care of. I actually had a medical emergency and within minutes Isobel was on the phone with doctors that she knew personally. She was incredibly helpful and we appreciated it so much.
It is a quick walk up the lane to the main highway where you can catch a collectivo every 5 minutes, there is also room to park a rental car.
Thank you Isobel, we hope you are doing well and hope to see you again soon!
We stayed at Far Side Tara in winter of 2012 for 3 months. The house was absolutely fantastic and our vacation was unforgettable! The house is very clean, comfortable and cozy for 2. We loved the garden because of these wondrefull Royal palm trees and for the space to walk around, my wife Lucie would take siestas under the palm trees when we came home from the beach, because the place is so quiet. And we even cooked home made breadwith the gaz stove and fish several nights in the barbeque that also serves as an outdoor eating place! Me and my wife stayed in the lower floor and with windows one on each side, that allow the breeze to flow through the space ~ we could even see the stars and the moon from our bed!. Our 2 girls came for a week to visit us and stayed in the casita, close to our home, that has twin bed, , which is just perfect because even though it's right outside it still gave them their privacy. We loved the fact that we were just a 10-minute drive from the beach and a 5 minute walk from Main road to take the (Colectivo) small bus every 3 minutes. The owner Isabel is so kind that she literally treated us like family! And in the evenings we'd cook at the house authentic Mexican food. We also loved the fact that the house is very close to Akumal famous beach for great swims and snorkeling and cenotes at Yalku. We've also recommended it to some friends because we're certain they will enjoy it as much as we did.
We had a great month stay here. We found the apartment to be clean and well equipped . The main house where the owner lives is situated close by, boasts a beautiful pool and grounds which we were welcome to share. The village of Akumal is only three kilometers away and has great snorkling and a good reef off shore . There are lots of cenotes to explore along the coast.We had bicycles and enjoyed just riding to do shopping and to explore nearby attractions but otherwise there are lots of colectivos (local buses) to get you around. A rental car is easily arranged as well. Isabel was a most welcoming hostess and we know you will love her . Thanks a lot Stan and Marguerite
