CASA PERLA DEL MAR WINNER TULUM'S TOP VACATION RENTAL 2011, 2012 AND 2013

Tulum Villa Rental Photos and Description

4bedrooms, 4full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, sleeps 6 to 10

Awarded Casa Perla del Mar Top Vacation Rental in Tulum again in 2013, making it three years in a row; 2011, 2012 and 2013. Designed by acclaimed architect Ismael Diaz, Casa Perla is a premiere Mediterranean -style villa along the Mayan Riviera. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or an unforgettable vacation with family and friends. This unique and spacious home is nestled between the blue Caribbean and the luscious Mayan jungle. To insure your total relaxation, our staff is available 6 days a week to clean and prepare dinner upon request. Cost of food is not included.

With meticulous attention to detail, Casa Perla reflects the rich color, texture and artistry of the Yucatan. It features unique hand stenciling throughout the home as is traditional in the beautiful haciendas of the region. All of the doors, cabinets and furniture are locally handmade with the finest craftsmanship.

Three of the 4 bedrooms have king-size beds and the 4th has 1 double bed and 2 singles - perfect for children.

Kitchen detail: Casa Perla boasts two well-appointed kitchens with gorgeous Mexican granite countertops. You will arrive to find each fully stocked including a coffee maker, blender and microwave. The downstairs kitchen is poolside so you are just steps away from an ice-cold Mexican beer or chips and freshly made guacamole.

Each of Casa Perla’s kitchens have a view of the jungle and the stunning Mayan sunset. It’s not unusual to see an amazing array of colorful birds. Our binoculars and books will help you to identify them though it will be easy to spot our gorgeous pink flamingos!

Outdoor detail: In addition to our verandas, Casa Perla has a rooftop deck with stunning 360-degree views. Wake up early and listen to the waves crashing on the shore as you watch the sun rise over the Caribbean. In the daytime the verandas are a perfect place to appreciate the flora and fauna of the Mayan jungle. There are literally thousands of rainbow-colored flowers and birds. And to see the sun set over the ancient Mayan jungle is breathtaking.

Casa Perla is only 50 meters (165 feet) from the water’s edge. Guests enjoy great shelling along the secluded beach or spectacular snorkeling and scuba diving directly in front of the house. If you visit between mid-May and November you can experience one of nature’s most unforgettable sights – Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in May and the hatchlings dash for the sea in November.

We live in Northern California which is also a beautiful part of the world.

Victor Becerra purchased this villa in 2010

We built this house because we love the area, being so close to both the ocean and the jungle. It is a magical location, very relaxing and very out of the way.The entire house is hand built, from the tile work to the cabinets to the paintings. It is a very unique property and our guests have loved staying here.

Relaxation Plus in Mexico at Casa Perla del Mar

  • 5 of 5
My vacation stay was wonderful and remarkable in many ways. The villa was luxurious and I was able to do my water aerobics in the pool warmed by the sun. The villa had amenities that I never thought would be available in Mexico. It was also a short distance for many day trips. The service provided by Italy and Elias was warm and professional. I was able to see several thunder and lightening storms from the second floor balcony facing the jungle - a real treat for someone from drought-stricken California. It was a vacation that I will never forget.

Beautiful, authentic, comfortable, safe, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Casa Perla del Mar for a week this May with my significant other and our two friends. The moment we arrived that Sunday evening we were like kids on Christmas - ecstatic to open each door to see what it looked like in person. The images on the site are very representative of the home, but seeing it in person is far superior. We instantly cracked open a cold one, took a dip in the pool, and vacation time was in full effect.

Watching the sunrise and being walking distance to the ocean was one of my favorite aspects of the home. We went for a walk every morning. Down the street is Blue Sky Restaurant, which has delicious pizzas (we too thought it was odd to have pizza in Mexico but totally worth it). Also on the same street was a local dive shop where we took a fishing charter. And yes we did catch a fish -- a 70 lb. marlin! The home is a short drive to all the other activities we wanted to do and it was very easy to get around.

Italy, the caretaker woman, was incredible and it was fantastic to have one meal a day prepped for us (we supplied the groceries, selected from the menu and tipped at the end of the week). While my Spanish was rusty it was pretty easy to communicate.
We felt extremely safe at the home as well as everywhere we went in Tulum.

Tips: print directions in advance like they mention on their website. You definitely want to rent a car. I wish there was a way around the required car insurance policy (I’d research more because maybe I missed something) but you don’t want to rely on taxis if you stay here. Brush up on your Spanish and/or download Google Translate or other similar smart phone apps to assist with communication while at the house and throughout Tulum.

Disclaimer note: I stayed at the Casa Perla del Mar home as a trade for assistance with PR efforts; however, the opinions are solely my own.

Great location and wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5
The house is in a great location outside the congestion of Tulum, but within an easy drive to the beautiful Tulum beaches. The beach across from the house is difficult to swim in and it was windy when we were there, but the cenote down the road and the beautiful house, make this an ideal place to stay with family and friends. We took walks on the beach to the calmer cove to snorkel and saw a sea ray along with fish. Miguel's Dive shop at Casa Cenote made sure we had a great diving experience there and at the Dos Ojos cenote. Very cool! The food cooked by the staff at Casa Perla was fabulous. We had a great ceviche and kabobs, enchiladas and eggs. They were very accommodating for meat eaters and vegetarians. The instructions, recommendations from the owners were spot on for meals and activities in the area. They really have a great reference book waiting for you. I felt very lucky to be able to stay at such a relaxing, beautiful place with some great friends.

RICH PEARLY TREASURE OFF THE BEATEN PATH!

  • 5 of 5
We flew into to Cancun on a Sunday evening, rented a car and drove about an hour and half to Casa Perla in Tankah Bay (15 min from Tulum). Driving in this part of Mexico is a little different than the States because there aren't any on/off ramps just turnaround points in the center of the highway which took a little getting used to along with the giant speed bumps every 15 miles or so called "Topes". When you see this sign, SLOW down, I almost launched our rental car several times.:)

There were six of us (4 adults, 2 children) and we arrived at Casa Perla at night after driving down a gated dirt road lined with oceanside villas for about 10 min. The house was beautiful: very clean, well appointed and so comfortable. We were all pretty tired after traveling all day so we jumped in the car and drove a few minutes down the road to Blue Sky pizza...the food was great and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

The next morning we opened the drapes and BAM the view of the ocean was simply stunning!! However we noticed big mounds on the sand throughout the beach. It was kind of strange at first until later that evening at sunset we noticed a nest of baby leatherback turtles hatching out of the sand and realized it was nesting season which explained the mounds of sand!! We were amazed!! No one was around, just us watching nature at it's best! The baby turtles ran out of their nest and hightailed it to the water. It was one of the most extraordinary experiences any of us have ever had, especially for our two 6 year old children. Throughout our 6-day stay at Casa Perla we were able to see two nests hatch and on our last night witnessed a giant leatherback turtle come ashore, dig a giant nest, lay her eggs, cover them up and make her way back to the water. It was simply amazing!!

We were also able to enjoy Italy's cooking everyday...she was very helpful and an amazing cook. I speak a little Spanish so I used google translate on my laptop to communicate with her much of the time. Also, Victor was always readily available and helpful to us via the internet.

We also enjoyed the nearby town of Akumal along with it's restaurants and beaches as well as the Tulum strip with many of it's amazing restaurants (La Zebra was our favorite). We had a great time at the Gran Cenote and Tulum Mayan Ruins (all about 20-25 min from Casa Perla).

We had the most amazing vacation! We'll definitely be back and will no doubt be staying at Casa Perla!

Fabulous week near Tulum

  • 5 of 5
This is a spectacular home to rent. It really is as good or better than the photos. The old adage, “it looks too good to be true” just doesn’t fit here. We had three families and a total of ten people ranging in age from seven weeks to sixty years and there was plenty to see and do for all of us. The upstairs and downstairs kitchens, the four really large bedrooms (all air conditioned), the upper and lower balconies and even the rooftop offered us lots of places for great conversation or solitude if you wanted to nap or read. The place we spent the most time at was the pool; perfect size for floating, conversation and a nice shallow end for little ones.
Italy, the housekeeper was a joy. Her meals were lovingly prepared and presented. She shopped for us and prepared everything from scratch. If you don't speak Spanish, bring a phrase book to help communicate with her and Elias the landscaper.
If you go in late June/early July as we did, bring lots of sunscreen (pretty hot and humid) and mosquito repellent (lots of those little buggers and sand fleas as well).
The owner of the property was quick to respond to our emails and questions about the property and the surrounding area.
If you need to go to town or want to visit the nearby tourist attractions allow a little extra time to go slowly down the dirt road and jump on the highway. But with the ocean across the street, a cenote down the road, big sea turtles migrating in at night, the pool, Wi-Fi and cable television (maybe for the kids) wonderful food and refreshments, great beachcombing and walks nearby, you’ll find lots of excuses to just sit back and enjoy Casa Perla del Mar.

The ruins of Coba are only a fifty minute drive from Tankah and the world famous ecological park of Xel-Ha is only fifteen minutes away. There are a multitude of cenotes in the area, which are large aquifers, both subterranean and surface level where you can take a refreshing swim in the heat of the day. Playa del Carmen, with all its shopping and nightlife is forty minutes away and Akumal, another beautiful beach town famous for turtle sightings only twenty minutes away. Tankah Bay is surrounded by a coral reef that can be reached either by boat or by kayak; a wonderful snorkeling experience.
