Overview

Tulum Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Casa Almaviva is a beautifully appointed beachfront villa situated in a magical spot between the blue-green Caribbean Sea to the east, and the jungle and its lagoons to the west.

The 45-minute drive from Tulum takes you through lush tropical forest and features majestic views of the Caribbean.

When you arrive, you will be greeted by our friendly staff, who will take excellent care of you during your visit and help make your stay unforgettable. Our chef will prepare delicious meals made from fresh, local ingredients. If you like seafood, you’re in luck. The local fishermen bring their daily catch right to our beach.

The modern Mexican villa features a large open living space under its palapa. The house was designed in harmony with the jungle, while offering a comfortable and beautiful place to relax and enjoy Sian Ka’an in a private setting. The house has many different living spaces, both inside and out, each with spectacular views of the turquoise ocean, the jungle, and endless sky. When you stay at Casa Almaviva, all you will hear are the waves, the birds, and the wind blowing through the trees.

Explore the surroundings, ride a bike, snorkel, or just relax swinging in the hammock under a palm tree. The Caribbean Sea and the ever-changing sky are your companions.

Visit Tulum or Coba. Spend a day fishing, or discover the sea turtles, pelicans, and dolphins at Punta Allen.

Welcome to Almaviva!

Rates shown are for two people, double occupancy. Each additional guest is $85-$100 USD per night. Children under 4 years of age stay free.

About The Owner

My name is Todd, born and raised in New York, I now make my home in Brooklyn. Many people don't realize how many beaches there are around New York, but when I was growing up, my family would always spend our summer days on Fire Island or at Montauk, Jones Beach and Coney Island.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2014

Why The Owner chose Tulum

I have traveled the world and seen some amazing sights. Sian Ka'an is special. It's natural beauty and abundant wildlife are world famous. And the sky sure is beautiful. But there's something else that's harder to describe. When you visit Sian Ka'an you feel a deep personal connection to the natural world, and also a sense of the long arc of time. I always imagined that someday I'd live in another country. But life always kept me close to home in New York. Then I found Casa Almaviva.

What makes this villa unique

Unbelievable sunsets over the lagoons, amazing star gazing, unique Caribbean experience away from the crowds.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at Almaviva was picture perfect. My wife and I and our baby boy

-4 months old- had a very relaxing holiday. Snorkeling was great fun. The powdery beach- marvelous and the cooking extraordinary!

We are surely coming back for a longer stay.

Private paradise !

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for an AMAZING stay at this peaceful oasis! Beautiful home, stunning surroundings and every accommodation I could possible think of! (and a few that I didn’t) 

The house is immaculately clean and cared for daily, by a couple, David and Miriam, that live on the premises, although I’m not sure where. They seems to be there the moment I wanted something, then was completely out of sight the next! Delicious breakfast, lunches and dinners were prepared which ever days we wanted, which was every day! I totally gave in to the pamper of this decadents yet somehow still simple place. Beautiful fresh fruit and fruit ice waters brought to us by our own private beach! Hammocks in a tree out by the water, star gazing roof top….it was just heavenly! I slept like a baby in the luxurious bed and woke to my delicious coffee in the open air living space. I enjoyed a bike ride with supplied bikes and went out on the one of the kayaks to explore the endless waters. I think I saw a turtle swim underneath me! A pod dolphins played by every late afternoon while I enjoyed the outdoor shower!

You can’t make this stuff up. Definitely off the beat n path, but not completely off the grid with wifi available when you feel like you needed to check in, which was never for me!

This place is everything anyone could want in a private relaxing getaway .

Magic in Mexico!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Almaviva, from the first moment you arrive provides a haven to relax, renew and enjoy your natural environment. It was a perfect place for a birthday trip with friends -- weather it was a morning relaxing on our private beach (feels like you have your own private island!) or an afternoon using the bikes, kayaks, snorkels and fins to work up an appetite we were happy to do nothing or have any activity at your disposal.

David and Miriam, the staff at the house are welcoming and wonderful. The food was lovely and fresh.

My personal favorites: time in the hammocks by the ocean and sunrise and sunset on the roof deck with a wonderful cup or coffee in the AM and wine at night. AND the weather was perfect -- warm days and cools nights! No A/C needed (even if it is provided).

An adventurous day trip down to Punta Allen to go on a boat tour to see amazing wild life and snorkel in the gorgeous water was also a highlight!

We will definitely make Casa Almaviva a yearly tradition!

Beautiful Adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back home from my visit to beautiful Casa Almaviva and wanted to say THANK YOU and tell you what an amazing time I had on my family vacation there. The private beach? So cool! The star-filled sky? Unbelievable! I did my daily stretches in the morning with the most gorgeous view ever. And best of all, the absolutely delicious food and meticulous care provided by the lovely David and Miriam. Almaviva is unlike anywhere I have ever been before and I know I will return, hopefully next year!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days and nights and absolutely loved it. So secluded and beautiful, pristine beach and water that was all ours, a fabulous open house and to top it all off David and Miriam were amazing, David's cooking superb. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get a way from it all. We loved it and hope to be back.

Wonderful Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Almaviva. It was a wonderful and memorable experience. The accommodations are outstanding; the home decor is exquisite. David and Myriam are excellent caretakers and cooks who go out of their way to make your visit unforgettable. The meals were remarkable. As other guests commented, Sian Kaan is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts; we'd add that walks and runs on the beach are a pleasure and all to yourself. We simply enjoyed hanging around and relaxing on the property.

As the owner will advise you and another guest commented, a vehicle with good suspension and ground clearance is advisable- our rental Jeep Patriot was fine. It's helpful to have Mexican currency which you can get from ATMs in Tulum that have market exchange rates, which are better rates than what you'll get paying for the nominal park entry fee, excursions or other items.

There aren't too many places you can stay where you can enjoy the sunset and have a parade of frigate birds and pelicans flying overhead returning to evening roosts, and a family of eagles souring above.

Where the sky begins...!

  • 5 of 5

Almaviva is simply unique to enjoy the natural beauty of the Sian Ka’an Reserve. My wife and I decided to take a family vacation to a remote destination in order to be close to nature and away from tourist crowds, and this place turned out to be the best experience for the whole family!

We were there for 4 days but they were not enough... Each day we did a different activity. We went fishing, snorkeling in a beautiful reef (all for ourselves), kayaking, and bird watching. It is simply incredible to see wildlife in its habitat! Besides the fish, turtles and rays in the sea, and the gators and birds from the lagoon, one morning we got to see baby turtles hatching on the beach! It was just an unforgettable gift...

The house is well equipped and eco-friendly, the service is great, and the food is amazing! It has everything you could ask for to be comfortable, but the real luxury is outside: the sea, the jungle, and the quiet starry nights.

We now understand why in the language of the Mayan people, Sian Ka'an means 'Where the sky begins'... It is a wonderful getaway and a great destination for nature lovers!
