Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are going to Tulum and want the perfect combination of tranquility and resort life, Tankah Bay is the place to stay and this is the perfect house. The place is even nicer than the photos--it's the vacation home you'd want if you were designing it from scratch. What makes this vacation extra-special is the family that cares for it (and for you as well): the house is kept spotless and the cooking superb. We had a number of the Mexican dishes,which were uniformly superb. You can spend days here kayaking, snorkeling, swimming in the cenote a few minutes walk away, enjoying a pizza at Blue Sky Inn, also a short walk--and doing nothing at all, on the beach or by the pool. There's also lots to do in the area: specially recommended is the Sian Kaan tour organized by the local community. The house works well for a couple like us as well as parties of up to 8 people If we can swing it, we'll be back!.

Dear Judy:

We cannot thank you enough for sharing

your beautiful Caribbean paradise with

us, and for helping us experience one of

the most special vacations of our lives!

Everything was even better that we

dreamed it would be.

You have done a fabulous job in creating

the perfect family vacation villa, and

have thought of everything – from your

well-planned kitchen to your snorkeling

equipment and kayaks. We enjoyed

snorkeling in the Cenote and the calm

Caribbean right outside our door,

perfect places to teach and share one of

our great pleasures with our

grandchildren. The kayaks are perfect

for exploring the coral and surrounding

areas, and we spent many peaceful

afternoon hours under your beach palapa.

Rosy and Wayner are wonderful – you have

found a very special family to care for

your villa and your guests. Everything

Rosy prepared for us was delicious, and

they kept the villa and the beach in

beautiful shape throughout our visit.

We look forward to visiting Casa P

Outstanding vacation location and Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks in March and had an absolute fabulous time! The owner was extremely helpful prior to our departure with all the necessary information for our trip. The staff at the house were extremely courteous and helpful, and taking the advice of prior comments, we scheduled the cook for numerous meals (more the second week after we tasted how delicious her meals were!). Her Banana bread was absolutely fabulous! Her meals were better than we could be downtown and her afternoon snacks of guacamole and salsa (as well as the quesadilla) every day was some of the best we have ever had! I would definitely recommend this place and we will be coming back! The swimming pool was a real treat and the ocean fabulous. Sporting equipment was great and the housekeeping service was top notch!

One week was not long enough!

  • 5 of 5

Many 5 star hotels and resorts can not hold a candle to this beautiful and well cared for home. Everything from the comfortable bedrooms each with a private bath, to the well-appointed kitchen, and lovely outdoor living space was perfect! The caretakers are friendly and efficient without being obtrusive, and Edith cooked several authentic Mexican and Mayan dishes for us which were fabulous. Two restaurants just a short walk down the beach were very good as well.

We kayaked, paddle boarded, and snorkeled in the crystal blue/green waters right off our beach, but do bring water shoes as the entry into the water is quite rocky. There is a cenote for snorkeling just across the street also. Although the pool is small, it is nice for a refreshing dip after lounging in a beach chair in the warm sun. We enjoyed the night sky with a million stars and the sunrises were spectacular from the upper deck.

We highly recommend this property and will likely return again soon!

Everything about this home was wonderful, well maintained and cared for. The on site staff were lovely, very friendly and were there but unobtrusive throughout the time we were there. Our kids loved the two dogs that live there as they felt like they were in their own home. Whilst you can't swim directly off the beach, we kayaked out each day, through the anchors and swam in the crystal warm waters. The house is fully equipped and really comfortable. Highly recommended...

Wonderful time in Tankah!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 2 weeks at Casa Playa Azul, and it was wonderful! The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The layout was perfect for our group with enough privacy for everyone but plenty of room to congregate inside and out. The caretakers were so good to take care of our every need and, best of all, the food they cooked was absolutely delicious. Next time, we'll eat every dinner there. We spent a lot of time on the patio and beach and really enjoyed the night sky from our lounge chairs. We struggled a bit the first week with how to swim off the beach. We have always stayed in places where you could walk right into the surf on a sandy surface and play in the waves. The Tankah area is a different kind of swimming experience...you wear water shoes, walk out a few yards in very shallow water on an uneven rocky surface, and once you get to where the water is 2-3 feet deep, you just lay down and start snorkeling. And the snorkeling is incredible!! We saw a sea turtle, a giant conch shell, all kinds of colorful fish, and lots of different coral. I wore a life jacket and fins, and I could have stayed in all day. When we wanted a sandy shore with waves to play in, we drove about 15 minutes away to El Paraiso beach club in Tulum. We also visited several cenotes in the area and they were great places to swim. Great restaurants just a short walk away and so much to do nearby. The owners provide a ton of information on the area, and the whole booking process with them was very easy. I hope we can visit Tulum again soon, and when we do, we will definitely stay at Casa Playa Azul again.
