TULUM DREAM VACATION VILLA- UNIQUE 4STORY DESIGN WITH POOL AND PRIVACY

Tulum House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Casa Blanca is a stylish yet affordable vacation house in the chic Mexican Caribbean town of Tulum. Tulum is famous for some of the most beautiful beaches in the world as well as for its cliffside Mayan ruins and prevalent cenotes (from the Mayan 'dzonot', meaning 'well'),caves that contain pools and underwater passageways in their interior, and form a unique recreational backdrop of snorkeling and diving exploration throughout the Yucatan region.

Enjoy your sundrenched beach vacation in the privacy of your own home. Casa blanca is a large, uniquely-designed private house tucked away from hectic city life yet conveniently located within walking distance from downtown shops and restaurants and just an easy 5-minute drive (or enjoyable bicycle ride) to Tulum's pristine beaches. With oversized windows and minimalist detail, this 4 story house was created with complete relaxation in mind; great for a family, couple, or group of close friends. Polished Grey cement interiors keep the house cool year round. The modern kitchen is accented with cool colored glass tiles and a large built-in dining fixture divides the living room and the kitchen, lending an open feel to meals and socializing.

The living room and kitchen face the swimming pool; through a set of double doors the view of the pool is framed by lush, indigenous landscaping. Enjoy an incredible sunset on our spacious roof terrace, high above the treetops...perfect for bird watching and star gazing after dark, or, with it's shady palapa, for daily yoga practice or just hanging out. This stylish private house has 3 separate bedrooms, outdoor showers (poolside), swimming pool, 2 1/2 bathrooms, outdoor grill, TV with streaming Netflix, DVD player, refrigerator, stove and oven. We provide pots, pans and dishes, and utilize the spice rack.

If you would rather avoid overcrowded tourist areas like Cancun or Playa del Carmen you will love Tulum. The pictures of the beaches in the listing are taken from Tulum beaches just five minutes away, wide, glistening stretches of beach that go on for miles. You will be able to enjoy Mayan culture and natural wonders in and around the incredibly unique town of Tulum. We are 1 hour and 45 minutes drive from Cancun airport but you will feel like you are a world away. Our guests enjoy a well balance vacation that includes the beach, relaxing by the pool, cooking and dining at home as well as dining out.

The house will be made ready (with clean sheets and towels) for your arrival. The rates include 1 midweek house keeping for a stay 7 nights or more during the peak season (please schedule this in advance). Low season rates do not include midweek house keeping. Additional maid service available (please book in advance) for an additional fee.

The house sleeps up to 7-8 people (children included), with a king sized master bed, two additional bedrooms, each with a matrimonial sized bed and one with an additional twin, and a pull-out sleeper sofa. Additionally, there is a comfortable hammock on the rooftop, and two cots stored in the master bedroom closet.

We thank you in advance and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you home in Tulum:)

Our family discovered Tulum in 2010, when, having heard a quiet buzz about the place for several years, and seen an article here and there in National Geographic, we finally made the trek, speeding quickly past the Cancun city limits on our way to our hoped-for paradise. As soon as we drove into Tulum, in our rental car, even before we found the beautiful beach, we were in love. Tulum is small and still largely 'undiscovered,' but nonetheless (or maybe because of this) alive with culture and fresh possibility. It has a safe, friendly, but still edge-of-the-world paradise feel to it. As much as we love traveling to new places, we knew Tulum was a place we wanted to return to many times, and, as luck (opportunity met with preparedness!) would have it, circumstances fell into place around our desire. Our family- Erika, Kris, Tristan (15) and Chloe (10) now resides in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Virginia for most of the year, and escapes to Tulum when we need a refresher, or at times a reminder, of the breadth and depth of the ocean, and of history, culture, and the broad horizons of our world... or just some family time in the sun and surf!

Erika Johnson purchased this house in 2012

At home, in the mountains of Virginia, we live in Yurts- a ancient design of round, canvas 'tents,' of a sort, dating back to the Mongolian tribes, who would pack them on their yaks when they moved to stake out a new place in the desert. We love the worn wildness of the Appalachian mountains, and the simplicity of yurt living. For us, Casa Blanca, with it's polished concrete, un-curtained windows, and four floors of stark, artistic simplicity, represented an opposite form of the same things we liked- uniqueness, simple lines (or, in the case of our yurts, curves), and the clean, natural salt-washed beauty of the ocean and it's surroundings. Tulum itself reminds us of the small community of Floyd, Virginia, that we call home in the States- a mix of friendly locals and engaged visitors, drawn to a place for the quality of life it represents. At home, this 'quality of life' takes the shape of a community of organic farmers, music and art as integral aspects of daily life, and an effort to live intentionally. In Tulum, these qualities also exist, in a similar-but-different way; we love the 'international' feel of the Tulum community- the visitors that come from the States, Europe, other parts of Mexico and South America, Australia and many other parts of the globe. We love the emphasis on healthy living, but also the friendly groundedness of the pervasive laid back vibe.

When we brought our kids from Virginia, in the United States, to Tulum to show them the house, and get their blessing on the place, Chloe, 10 years old, ran straight upstairs in her polka dot dress and jumped from the second story balcony into the pool! Although she is something of a daredevil, it didn't make us nervous, as we'd done it repeatedly ourselves! The former house owner had built the balcony, and indeed planned the depth of the pool, with this sort of fun frivolity in mind. It's that 'lightness-of-being' that drew us to this particular property, with its view of palm leaves shimmering in the slight breeze from the stairway window, and the prehistoric, peeling, banana-loving iguana that invariably saunters across the concrete wall every morning, as we sip coffee by the pool, entertaining us as he makes short shift of the fruit that is nearly as big as he. Casa Blanca is pure tranquility. It's simple modernity, with the lovely twist of being located off a dirt road. It's quiet and private, while completely accessible to some of the best restaurants you can imagine. It's beach life, amidst a uniquely cultured community.

Huge villa, immaculately kept, beautifully furnished, great pool, great location!

  • 5 of 5
Wow. We were completely overwhelmed when we arrived at how perfect Casa Blanca was for us.

We are a family of four (with two children aged 7 and 16). We stayed for 2 weeks and could have stayed for months. The villa is totally secluded with 4 stories, and the ground level having a large living/kitchen/dining area overlooking the pool so we could relax and keep an eye on the kids while being able to check in on work etc on the wifi when needed. The bedrooms are spacious (beautiful big king main) and the whole place is really nicely decorated. There are also nice little getaway areas like the rooftop which is furnished with a hammock and dipping pool - such a lovely surprise!

We loved the mix of polished concrete and wood which makes for easy upkeep. The pool was bigger than expected (we thought it would be like a spa) but plenty of room for all four of us to frolic with pool hammocks at once and dive (its super deep and fun to dive down!). We hired a car for 2 weeks which we really appreciated because it gave us the ability to get to the beach (8 min drive), swim in the cenotes (many to choose), visit the various ruins, shopping spots and visit the fishing village of Punta Allen etc. The owners of the property were super attentive (we couldnt work out the air-con in one of the bedrooms for example and they came and helped us immediately). The grounds are covered in beautiful plants and watered regularly by the caretakers).

Outside the property the local area is under development (although no immediate buildings around us) but was lovely and quiet at night. We felt very safe and made friends with some of the locals.

This is not an 'on the beach' property. Its a great haven a short drive from the beach which we preferred as we had our own spacious privacy, pool, cooking, hi speed internet and place to retreat to - which is a far cry away from the basic accommodations that are available on the beach with much less facilities. We would drive to the beach resorts and eat breakfast and then just use the wide range of beach spots there.

We ended up seeing sea turtles arrive and lay eggs, swam with whale sharks up in Isla De Mujeres and had the most relaxing and beautiful holiday ever.

I can't recommend Casa Blanca enough - but would def recommend having a car if you are a family (the property has 2 bikes available for free) so you can get about and explore the amazing and beautful things Tulum has for offer.

10 days of pure pleasure

  • 5 of 5
We where a group of 5 and we had 10 amazing days in Tulum. The house was just a blast and everything was just perfect. Every single day we were just delighted how the place is perfect. The house is big enough to your own space when you feel more relax or you can spend the whole day by the pool and get to the roof and watch the beautiful sunset with a good cold beer.

Also, the managers are very diligent and if you need something they get as quick as possible to make your trip good. They called in the middle of our stay to check that everything was ok and that we didn't need anything.

The beach is about 7k but with a taxi or a car it takes 5 min to get there. We almost walk every time to the beach is a good walk but after a few time you get used to it and also you can visit around.

Tulum is amazing, people are relax and Casa Blanca is a little paradise. You have to stay at Casa Blanca. Is so cool you can spend a whole day without going out.
Thanks for everything and for sure i'll tell everybody around to get to Casa Blanca if you can. We are already thinking to get there next year. It's a must.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review; it sounds as though you spent your time in Tulum much as we do...enjoying the relaxed pleasures of socializing at the house, enjoying the perks and proximity of town, and spending dedicated days at the beach. We hope you will indeed return!

Gorgeous House

  • 4 of 5
The only reason this review is 4 stars and not 5 stars is because it is a little bit of a pain to get to and from the Hotel road/beaches. My brother had his wedding on the Hotel road, he was staying at one of the Hotels way down the road, so it took us about 20 minutes one-way to get there. And because we had such late nights, with some drinking, it was a little (JUST A LITTLE) pain to drive back.

HOWEVER, the house itself is fantastic, very unique open design, interesting art, amazing kitchen, beautiful garden and the best little pool I've ever been in. Its designed so you can lay down, sit down, stand, or dive into (10-12ft deep), really great. A private pool at the end of the day, or beginning, is perfect in Tulum. It is also secluded, a big plus for me, but within walking distance to great restaurants and fresh fruit. They supply bikes to get into town quickly.

This house nailed it, my girlfriend loved it, I highly recommend it.

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife, three kids and I stayed at this wonderful property for the second time this spring. We are already talking about going again next year. I tell everyone I know "you have to go to Tulum and you have to stay at this house". The house comfortably slept and housed all 5 of us. It is cool and shady and we always felt safe and secure. It has a great big kitchen if you want to cook with all of the utensils you'll need. Every morning we would get up, the kids would jump in the lovely pool and play until breakfast was ready then we would eat and pack for the day. We spent the majority of our days at the many Cenotes around Tulum or at the beaches (the beaches are the most amazing I have ever seen) swimming and then grabbing lunch or dinner at the many beach road restaurants. Sometimes we would grab the bikes supplied by the homeowners and go for a ride in and around town. I had a few questions when we arrived so I emailed the owners and they got back to me immediately! Very helpful! In short, a perfect experience.

Private artistic sanctuary

  • 5 of 5
Casa Blanca worked well as a base of operations for our group of adults and teens to explore Tulum. The owner was extremely helpful in answering questions and giving advise about local adventures. This beautiful art-filled home was very well maintained and worked well for 2 families to have both room to socialize and quiet areas for relaxation. Jumping off the 2nd story balcony into the deep pool was a hit for the thrill seekers in our party!

The town of Tulum essentially offers a two-for-one experience; 'downtown' and 'The Beaches.' They are within a mile distance of one another, but completely different settings. Casa Blanca offers easy access to both. From Casa Blanca you can walk downtown; have coffee and check your email, or borrow a book at the local coffee shop, frequented by locals and tourists alike. Visit the Mexican bakery, or the Italian version, Mot Mot Cafe, for a pastry. Shop the many unique boutiques for art, jewelery, Mexican pottery, masks, and the like, and plan your outdoor adventure at one of the many storefront guided tour companies. The Shantala Spa offers one of the single hour and a half massages you'll get anywhere, and one could easily eat at a different fabulous restaurant- from the most authentic Mexican to Argentinian steakhouses, take-out Thai, brick oven pizza, street-side tamales and tacos and all varieties of assorted fusion cuisine. A short taxi, bus, car or even scooter ride and you can be swimming with sea turtles or swimming through underwater caves, or 'cenotes.' Meanwhile, at La Playa, the Beach, known as the 'Zona Hotelara' or Hotel Zone, is a several-mile stretch of boutique eco-hotels, many of which are solar or wind powered, as Tulum's still developing electrical infrastructure doesn't stretch too far from town. That only adds to the beauty and charm of this uniquely beautiful stretch of beachside cabanas, restaurants, bars, spas and shops, however, and one could easily pass long stretches of time just sauntering down the beach or the narrow street, sunning, people-watching, and just soaking up the relaxed, laid-back, and beautifully non commercial vibe of this extraordinary pocket of the Yucatan.
