Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Villa de Paz. It was my wife, with my 18yr old daughter and her friend, my 15yr old son and his friend, and my 10 year old son. Upon arrival the house and grounds from the outside are beautiful, the location is right on the beach, that includes a nice pool on the beach, it is about 15 feet to the sea, although I do not recommend swimming right off the beach in front of the house it is a bit rocky, beach shoes necessary. Inside, the house is a bit older and in need of some upgrades but overall I give it a 7 out of 10, it is spacious and comfortable and we had plenty of room. We ate all of our meals outside on the patio by the pool. Carlos the caretaker is great and cleans the house and beach everyday, he understands very little English but we had no trouble communicating, he also gets you cabs when needed. He arranged for us to have a chef prepare us breakfast and dinner 5 out of the 8 days we where there, Honorio and Maddie prepared exquisite meals, did all the shopping, we gave them the money prior, we had lobster, fajitas, fresh, salsa, and guacamole everyday, desserts, flan, pastry, it was top notch. I tipped them at the end of the week, they also served and cleaned up after every meal. It is very safe, we did lock up every night but we never felt unsafe. It was sunny and 85 everyday, with a nice ocean breeze, each bedroom has air-conditioning, but one did break in the small bedroom so we just had my son move in with his brother, no big deal. Casa Cenote is a great restaurant 2 properties down, as well as Blue Sky, Casa Cenote has a dive shop, we used them to Scuba Dive the freshwater Cenote right behind the house, great for snorkeling as well, you can also swim and snorkel in the ocean right in front of Casa Cenote. Lots to do locally, if you want to travel some. Susie the owner is very responsive and answered any and all of my questions. The only thing that caught us off guard was the inability to flush TP because of the fragile septic system, although it was not as big of deal as we first thought it would be. Overall it was paradise, I highly recommend staying at Villa de Paz!! Thanks you Susie!!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here back in May 2010 and I can't say enough about how wonderful it all was. The view, the amazing house and amenities so well kept, the very nice caretaker, Susie who was so amenable and made it all possible for us with her reasonable rates, and Bonita the dog who made her regular rounds. We would love to come back again. Will never forget this trip!

VILLA DE PAZ JULY 2012

  • 5 of 5

WOW! WE HAVE STAYED IN SEVERAL OTHER HOMES IN TANKAH AND ENJOYED VILLA DE PAZ THE BEST. FIRST AND FOREMOST THIS IS THE MOST REASONABLY PRICED HOME ON THE RIVIERA MAYA AND COST IS A HUGE FACTOR FOR THE BENNETT FAMILY. THE FLOW OF THE HOUSE AND POSITIONING OF LIVING SPACES AND BEDROOM SPACES MAKES FOR A MUCH BIGGER FEEL. AIR FLOWING THRU THE HOUSE IS SO IMPORTANT AND WITH SO MANY WINDOWS AND SCREEN DOORS AND FANS THE COMFORT LEVEL DURING THE DAY WAS HIGH. POOL IS A TOTAL PLUS. 3 KAYAKS A BONUS FOR 5+ SNORKELERS AT A TIME. PLENTY OF SHADE PROVIDED UNDER THE OUTDOOR PATIO AREA AND TWO PALAPAS. ONE OF OUR FAVORITE AREAS OF THE HOUSE WAS THE UPSTAIRS DECK (HALF OUT IN THE OPEN WITH WORLD CLASS VIEWS OF TANKAH BAY AND HALF UNDER A PALAPA STYLE ROOF). THIS IS WHERE WE WOULD HOST DINNER PARTIES FOR OUR FRIENDS AND GUESTS. IF YOU HAVE DONE YOUR RESEARCH TANKAH IS SUCH A GREAT LOCATION FOR DOING AS LITTLE AS YOU WANT OR AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. OUR FAVORITE WALKING DISTANCE OR KAYAKING DISTANCE ACTIVITES INCLUDED SNORKELING, DIVING, EATING YUMMY BLUE SKY PIZZA, CASA CENOTE MARGARITAS OR JUST LOUNGING AROUND THE POOL. NOT ONLY WOULD WE DIVE THE CENOTE BUT WE WOULD DIVE THE LEDGE WHERE THE FRESH WATER EXITED INTO THE OCEAN. WE NEVER PENETRATED THE CAVE ONLY TOOK A PEEK INTO IT. SNORKELING THESE AREAS ALSO EXCELLENT. WORLD CLASS SNORKELING JUST INSIDE THE REEF ACCESSIBLE BY KAYAK OR LONG SWIM. I COULD GO ON AND ON. FOR THE BENNETT FAMILY AND FRIENDS TANKAH IS A PLACE WE WILL RETURN EVERY SUMMER AND VILLA DE PAZ IS OUR NEW CHOICE. CARETAKER CARLOS NOT ONLY KEEPS THE PLACE SPOTLESS HE WILL DO AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE AS YOU WANT HIM TO DO. JUST ANOTHER POSITIVE FOR THIS HOME. THANKS SUSIE.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Villa de Paz. We had two families with four kids between us (ages 7, 6, 4, and 3). We all had a wonderful time. The kids loved the pool and spent their days running back and forth from there to the beach and then scouting for lizards in the front yard. Carlos was very helpful and made sure everything was tidy every day. He also helped us with kayaks which everyone enjoyed using to explore the reef just outside our door. We took some fun days trips. We rented boogie boards in Tulum and took everyone to Xela where we jumped off cliffs, went on zip lines and tubed through mangroves.

The house is so beautiful, situated on a lovely bay with a 3 minute walk to the cenote, a little tienda and the cenote bar. We all agreed it was the best family trip we have ever done. I would recommend it to anyone but it worked so well with the kids, they are still talking about it every day. Thanks to Susie and Carlos for their warm hospitality! It was the perfect mixture of relaxation and adventure. We hope to return some day to this beautiful place.

Amazing paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull time here! It is beautifull, well appointed and comfortable, and offers an amazing beachfront experience. Secluded enough without being too far. Within close car distance to the comoditites of beautifull Tulum (and its new big mercado"Super Chedraui"). I have no doubt that we will be returning.This house is absolutly perfect, -the running gag was that none of us could find a single thing wrong here all week!!!

Special thanks to Carlos, and to Susie for having us as guests at this great place.

GORGEOUS and CLEAN. Home demands relaxation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at dusk, Carlos, greeted us warmly, and introduced us to our "new" 3 bedroom home and of course the private bungalow with bed and bath. We relaxed and celebrated our arrival and retired to the soothing sounds of waves caressing the shore and tucked ourselves inside crisp, fresh smelling sheets. Carlos wakes early and combs the beach before you even open your eyes and think about getting out of bed. I ate cereal on the beach the next morning, the warmth of the early sun, kissing my face, while the cool tropical breeze refreshed me. My son scavengered the white beach for shells and souvenirs. Being tourists, we enjoy the convenient location of the home yet revelled in the seclusion. Carlos maintains the property beautifully yet he is never intrusive. He cleans EVERYTHING and provides you with fresh bath & beach towels on a daily basis. Every night, I would tuck my legs into clean, crisp sheets and lay my head down on a fresh smelling pillow. I am not sure how Carlos did it, but there was never a crumb of sand in the bed. Lots to do in the area. GREAT local food. Blue Sky, a short walk down the beach, has yummy pizza and pasta. Nearby, all inclusive Xel-Ha has an all you can eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks (alcohol too)! You can snorkel, rental included, in the world's largest aquarium, where ocean meets river in a secluded jungle. You can snorkel in underwater caves, zipline, or cliff jump. For an extra fee, we tried snuba. It is a cross between snorkeling and scuba diving. We also went to a place called the Hidden Worlds, located a few minutes from the beach house. They offer a jungle buggy excursion through the rich, green lushness. Avatar, a zipline roller coaster, was exhilarating. We repelled through the mouth of a cave and was given direction to let go and flip upside down as we entrusted our fate in a well versed guide. We skycycled (an adventure but fatiguing) and snorkeled a stalagmite spiked cave inhabited by a few friendly bats. Tulum ruins are close and interesting. It's also worth the easy drive, to Coba. The Nohoch Mul pyramid is quite steep and I felt gratified after I surmount. We rented a fishing boat and tried our luck at deep sea fishing. My father-in-law reeled in the prize, a barracuda. Our guides cleaned all of our catches, which were enjoyed for lunch. My son brought home the barracuda teeth! LOVED our vacation, our beach house was PERFECT. Carlos is an asset. Highly recommend.

Much to see and do along this stretch of beach. Xel-Ha is another short drive away offering a Disney-like experience of beautiful water features and rides. A 'MUST See'.
