Tulum Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Huge Terrace and easy access to the beach!

''Casa de Paola' is a stunning penthouse inspired on Mexican contemporary expression and designed for guests looking into a combination of comfort, relaxation and luxury.

Situated in the eco-friendly Aldea Zama area, in the heart of Tulum National Park, the 2 story house offers just about everything you need to indulge and enjoy yourself in a vacation you are sure to remember.

With easy access to sugar-white sands, paradise beaches, crystal-clear cenotes, and Mayan ruins, this luxurious penthouse represents the perfect choice for couples or families and can accommodate up to 5 people.

With a large terrace facing the rich landscape of the emerald forest, the penthouse features 2 bedrooms (2 queen beds), with their en suite bathrooms, a single bed on the mezzanine, a fully stocked kitchen with all appliances and kitchen ware, living/dining area with almost 6 meters ceilings on top.

The private terrace on the second floor features a shower, sink and a relaxing lounge and sofa area. It represents the perfect spot to tan and read your favorite book while enjoying the fantastic breeze coming from the sea. This is also the place you want to be at night, observing thousands of starts surrounding you while sniping a margarita. A truly breathtaking experience!

Both bedrooms are furnished with balconies, built-in wardrobes with hangers, adequate lighting, and high quality cotton bed linens.  All linen and towels will be provided for your stay. Over sized windows allow for the natural light to shine through, and the marble flooring is displayed throughout the whole living space.  All windows are fully screened.

And this isn't all. The property also features fantastic paintings, WiFi internet, air conditioning, flat screen TV in the living room and a spectacular swimming pool! 


Bike paved roads will make it safe and easy for you to move around: only 5 minutes to reach the crystalline, white-sand beaches and the many amazing restaurants facing the Caribbean sea, and about 2 minutes bike to get to Tulum town, where all the commercial and social activities take place.


Tulum’s ancient walled Maya city is 10 minutes distance from the house, and other important archaeological sites lie close at hand, such as Cobá, located 42 km northeast of Tulum, and ChichénItzá in the same direction.


In a nutshell, this penthouse represents the nirvana for handy access to beauty, comfort, nature, and ancient history.  


Come and try, you won’t be disappointed!

About Paola and Vincent

We felt in love with this place in early 2012 on the occasion of a long vacation in Mexico to celebrate my husband 65th birthday and his retirement after 40 years of a very challenging and prestigious working activity, that took us living for many years in many different countries around the world.

After spending almost two months in Tulum we decided to settle there buying our holiday home inside the newly development area of Aldea Zama, nestled in the jungle and just steps away from the beautiful beaches of the Riviera Maya.

At that time our beautiful penthouse was still under construction, and this allowed us to order some modifications according to our taste.

At the end of 2012, as the house was completed, we dedicated much time to decorate it making our Caribbean house truly 'unique'

Paola and Vincent purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Paola and Vincent chose Tulum

You will enjoy the privacy and the large space available, having the complete floor plus the huge private roof top of the building exclusively for your use. Breakfast on the deck as the sun rises and wine on the terrace as the sun sets. Really a true tropical paradise!

What makes this apartment unique

Very spacious Penthouse with all marble floors - six meters ceiling - fully equipped - extra-large bedrooms balcony and stunning terrace

Wonderful spot in the quiet of the jungle

  • 4 of 5
My friend and I were lucky enough to stay at Casa de Paola for a week in late April/early May. It was spectacular. More than the beauty of the actual home, the owners Paola and Vincent were wonderful to work with. They were extremely responsive, helpful and kind. When renting from a site like this, you just never know what you may get. And I can say that what you see in the pictures is EXACTLY what you get. The condo is stunning, fresh and new and is located in a pretty undeveloped part of Tulum, so it's super private and quiet, but close enough to beaches and entertainment. I'd recommend renting a car, though, because it would be a lengthy bike ride in the heat.

The only recommendation I'd make to Paola and Vincent is to invest in a bigger hot water heater. Showers were tepid, never hot. It worked for us since it was so hot out while we were there, but a nice hot shower after a day at the beach would have been lovely.

If you're looking for a beautiful, roomy, comfortable and private place to stay while visiting Tulum, this is it.

Todo y más

Saber donde quedarse a dormir durante las vacaciones es siempre bastante complicado, pero nunca te equivocaras si vas a "Casa de Paola"!

La casa en sí es espectacular! Con dos cuartos (cada uno con su baño), un salón, comedor y cocina, la casa tiene todo lo que necesitas. Casi casi no te apetece salir de casa! Eravamos dos parejas de vacaciones juntas y conseguimos tener nuestro proprio espacio, pero también con un espacio comun que nos permetia relajarnos y cocinarnos.

Lo que más nos sorprendio fue que la descripcion de la casa no bastaba para lo que era! Con esta casa, esperate lo que ves en la descripción y MÁS!

Pero sobre todo, podría escribir un libro entero sobre el sitio en el que estaba la casa. Alrededor de esta casa tienes todo lo que te sirve para una vacacion, desde las playas con agua cristalina hasta la jungla más salvaje.

Ademas de que la casa y el sitio hiban más allá de las expectativas, Vincent y Paola estaban más que disponibles para qualquier cosa.

Recomendaría "Casa de Paola" a qualquier.

Muchissimas gracias Vincent y Paola! Nos veremos seguramente muy pronto!

Constanza, Roberto, Fernando y Ana.

Excellent solution for a superb two week holiday in the Mayan Riviera!

We booked this amazing penthouse for our 2012 xmas vacations with the whole family (total 5 adults), it proved to be a fantastic choice, we could not believe how lucky we were.

Flat is modern, spacious, finely designed and furnished with taste. Stepping into the condo with the minimalistic design you immediately know you have made the right choice.

There are two very large bedrooms with private en-suite bathrooms, a huge living area with open kitchen and a upper deck where you can accommodate a single adult or two kids. Place is brand new, aircon in all rooms, marble floors, big windows and... the terrace! Just STUNNING overlooking the jungle. An amazing place. Ideal for breakfast or evening dinners and drinks under the star lit sky.

Beach and Tulum pueblo are easily accessible by 10min bike ride on pedestrian paths or 5min drive.

Easy access to groceries and amenities needed.

We will definitely be back.

Thank you Vincent and Paola for allowing us to enjoy a bit of your paradise carribean life!

All the best, Alex & Sara
