Overview

Tulum Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms en suite, 1 half bath, sleeps 10-12

The Pink House combines luxury hotel amenities with attention to artistic detail, festive informality, and incredible natural beauty. The house was designed to brings the outdoors in, so you can enjoy spectacular views from every space in the house.

The three spacious bedrooms have unique en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, black-out curtains, terraces, iPod docks, and safes. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and the other bedrooms have dressers and armoires. There is a sleep-sofa in the second bedroom. The mattresses and linens are the highest quality guaranteeing a great night sleep!

The large open-plan first floor is a combination living room, dining room, and professional kitchen, with everything you need to cook, bake, grill, and make ice-cream! If you don't feel like cooking, but want to stay home, Pancho and Berta can prepare fresh, delicious meals for you.

The house opens up onto a terrace and a natural-looking stone pool. The outdoor eating area is shaded. There are lounging areas by the pool, surrounded by gardens for privacy. Or head for the beach palapa, to read on the hammocks or sunbathe on the lounge chairs. We have kayaks and snorkel equipment!

At night, whether it is an intimate romantic getaway or a group holiday, you will feel transported by the magical lights that illuminate the pool and woods, not to mention the breathtaking stars! Unlike most villas, we have preserved our jungle (between the street and the house). Our gardens have a profusion of flowering hibiscus, bougainvillea, orchids, sea cabbage and a wide variety of native trees that attract hummingbirds, Baltimore orioles and many other birds.

Daily housekeeping is included and chef services are available at an extra cost.

We can book spa services, private yoga classes, fishing/diving trips, and virtually anything else you might want.

Soliman Bay is a private enclave that offers complete quietude, just a short drive from the colorful center of Tulum and the hip restaurants and nightlife of the Tulum Beach area.

The Pink House is next door to Hotel Jashita, an upscale boutique hotel, with a restaurant, bar and small boat for fishing/diving trips that you can book.

From the historian, birdwatcher, botany buff to the thrill seeker, all interests will be satisfied by the area's rich offerings. The ancient Maya ruins of Tulum, Coba, and Muyil are between 15 -45 minutes away. Many eco-theme parks are nearby, offering jungle zip-lining, cenotes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cenote), and much more. Or just swim, snorkel and relax on your own large stretch of soft white sand beach. At the other end of the bay, Chamico's is a rustic outdoor restaurant serving some of the freshest seafood and the best guacamole.

The house is designed to sleep three couples plus a few children - if your party exceeds this amount, please contact us regarding our charming thatch-roof bungalow next to the house. It has a queen-size bed, a loft with a full-size air mattress, a fully-equipped kitchen, a coral indoor/outdoor shower, and a front porch with a dining area and a hammock.

Designed and built by artist Jill Hunter, The Pink House boasts vibrant colors that conjure the rich palette of Mexican architecture, with the attention to comfort of a five-star hotel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My trip to The Pink House was truly a life changing experience. As soon as you enter the grounds, you are immediately overcome by a sense of serenity. The landscaping is full of beautiful flowers and tropical plants that help offer some privacy, and make you feel like you are in your own personal paradise. I cannot even describe the beauty of the house itself, or the view of the bay...it is most definitely something to behold that you must see for yourself! The bright colors, authentic furnishing, and lavish landscape are only the beginning. Everything about this property is inviting, including the personal staff! To top off what is already such an amazing gem, there are endless activities to partake in that make the experience at The Pink House even more unique. I went kayaking and snorkeling on the bay, walked the shore in search of shells (down to an amazing little restaurant right on the bay with the best guacamole I've ever tasted!), swam in cenotes, visited the Coba Ruins, zip-lined, walked around in the town of Tulum, and took a day trip to Playa Del Carmen for some shopping! Everything you could want to do is either right outside the house, or just a short drive away. I mean, you can't get much better than that! No matter what you do or where you go, the house and the staff are there to cater to your needs and make sure that your stay is as relaxing and fulfilling as possible. There is a convenient store that is located right on the grounds, which has all your basic necessities and even some things that you didn't think you would need, but will definitely want to try out! I can't forget to mention the owner of the house, Jill, who is such an amazing person and one that is very passionate about what she does. She makes sure that you are well taken care of and that your stay in The Pink House is one that you will remember forever. Jill offered great insight to the local culture and even taught me a few spanish phrases! She can communicate very well with anyone she encounters and is truly one of a kind, just like her work of art 'The Pink house'.

a dream coming true

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful time at the Pink House! It was a dream coming true and we were constantly in adoration of all the beautiful and super fine details! of the house!
I felt so happy I could not stop smiling bright.
Arriving at 'the city',back home in Playa del Carmen, we immediately felt the regret we could not have stayed one night longer in this piece of paradise.

The Great Escape

  • 4 of 5
Lucy was great to work with on the specifics of our stay at the Pink House. Berta, the housekeeper/cook, and her husband, the grounds keeper, were very supportive of our needs during our stay. There was space enough for one vehicle within the security of the gate. Additional vehicles may park nearby, but outside the property wall.
The Pink House was just as described, great views and comfortable accommodations. With a large stove and a massive center island, the kitchen was the hub of our stay, when not holding down the hammock or beach chairs. The hot water was limited, so we weren’t able to take advantage of the hot tubs or large bath tubs, otherwise the amenities were more than sufficient. We enjoyed the pool in the evenings and the cabana hut on the beach during the day.
We took full advantage of the hotel bar and restaurant next door when we ran out of beer or didn’t want to cook. The main tourist area in Tulum was a short 10-15 minute drive from the Pink House. We spent half of our evenings in this area for the beaches, shopping and restaurant options. Our favorite restaurant was Hartwood. Hartwood had great service and great food, but it was relatively expensive compared to other options in the area. Additionally, the nearby ruins and adventure/outdoor options were well worth it.

The Pink House is great

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for 4 nights and had a great time. The house is right on the bay with amazing views. The location is a little off the beaten path which gives it a nice isolated feel--far away from any tourists. But it is still within reasonable driving distance of Tulum and other local villages.

The house is beautifully-decorated and very comfortable. Each of the bedrooms has its own unique style which is a cool touch.

There is a small hotel next door which is a nice place to have a drink or get a quick meal.

I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!

Soliman Bay is a beautiful reef protected bay, perfect for snorkeling, diving and kayaking. The bay is located 11km from Tulum, a town with many ethnic restaurants and dive shops, offering guided tours through the special underground rivers located in the Yucatan Penincula. Mayan ruins abound as well as eco-parks offering zip lines over jungle canopies, cave swimming, snorkeling.
