This enchanting, very cozy, charming beach house is a mere 250 steps to the secluded, pristine beach of Holbox Island. It is called Casa de Los Angeles and is our special home away from home in Tulum.
This ample sized house sleep 7, it has two bedrooms, one upstairs with a king bed and full bathroom, and one downstairs with a queen bed and full bathroom and a double futon in the living room. There is also a single bed upstairs, which can be placed anywhere.
The whole upstairs is the master bedroom which has a large terrace overlooking the sea. It is very private and quiet and one can easily spend the whole afternoon reading and napping in paradise.
The kitchen downstairs is fully equipped, including a coffee maker, coffee/ tea/sugar and two large containers of drinking water. There is a handmade barbeque in the back yard to cook your fresh lobster, fish, shrimp and crab that you can buy directly from the fisherman.
The house has all of the necessary amenities to be very comfortable, but it doesn’t have the frivolities, such as t.v. or internet. If you wish to watch t.v., we suggest that you bring your portable dvd player, or lap top. There are several dvd rental places in town , and there are many internet cafes, restaurants and bars with wifi.
Casa de Los Angeles is a 7-10 minute walk to town, to all markets, shops and restaurants. There are also several bike rentals and golf cart taxis are readily available. There are no cars allowed on the island, which is well appreciated by parents with small children and people who want to get away from traffic!
