This spacious and bright beach house is within walking distance of Casa Cenote and Manatee cenote. 2 Sea Kayaks, swimming pool and nice hammocks mean that you can spend days ''just hanging out'' in this lovely villa and never have to put on shoes. General Layout: Casa Cavu is a two level villa with three bedrooms and open floor plan. The main level consists of an open living and dining area with breakfast bar and fully equipped modern kitchen. Sliding glass doors highlight the incredible view looking out over beach side pool and Tankah Bay. Two bedrooms are located on the main level and share bath. Each bedroom is air conditioned.

Tankah Tres: Tankah Tres beach is perfect for snorkeling, sea kayaking, due to the ecology of the bay you will find small coral heads in shore. Aqua shoes are suggested. There are however sandy entry points along Tankah beach for swimming.

Riviera Maya: Along the Caribbean Coast of Mexico, a country rich in culture, history and natural beauty lies the Riviera Maya. Located along the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula between the incredible turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and an enchanting tropical jungle, The Riviera Maya is made up of small quiet communities, each with its own charm and attractions.

The Riviera Maya is an extraordinary and diverse land which invites exploration, adventure and reflection. The coastline is paralleled by the Great Maya Reef, the world's second largest barrier reef, famous for its beauty and abundant and varied marine life. Beneath the earth a unique and complex system of underground rivers criss-cross the Yucatan Peninsula, opening to create fascinating caverns, caves and cenotes, (sinkholes). Hundreds of archaeological sites rise from the emerald green jungle, remnants of the spectacular and timeless Mayan civilization.

If you are looking for the gorgeous beaches on Tulum but would like a respite from the hipster chaos of the playa zone, then this place is perfect. Beach front, comfortable, kid friendly, gorgeous view of the Caribbean. The staff are in credible -- get Isidro to cook for you!

A quiet, relaxing corner of Paradise.

Third time at Casa Cavu and can't wait to go back again. As I have mentioned in previous reviews we love this house because of where it is and the staff. Tankah Bay is quiet and serene. Although the reopening of the old resort on the south end of the bay (now known as Pavo Real)has impacted the number of people on that part of the beach, its still not a huge crowd. Its necessary to have a car unless you want to walk the distance out to the main road for a collectivo.Casa Cavu is nice house for folks who want good accommodations and are not in need of the resort style fluff and bustle. The beach is good sand, but as noted by all before, the bay is rocky and grassy. Not ideal for swimming. That's why its great to have the pool! If some one needs sand to swim on go to Tulum Beach. As always Rocia and Isidro are so nice. There when you need them, not in your way when you want peace and quiet. On our first day Isidro brought us some freshly opened coconuts from the yard to sip the water from and put in our cocktails. A special touch.

Great location, good house, great service.

Casa Cavu is located on a perfectly quiet and isolated part of Tankah Bay, with reef-protected beaches and great off-shore snorkeling. If you like to get away from the hotels and resorts of Cancun, this is a great choice. In the neighborhood is a great snorkel/dive/fishing charter shop at Casa Cenote, and also Tankah Inn for great breakfasts.

The house is right on the beach, pool is good for kids just splashing around, and Isidro and Rosio were great helps. What's missing is furniture. The couch is built-in and the entertainment center was across the open floor plan behind the dining room table. It might have seemed like a good idea, but the concrete couch is not terribly comfortable or convenient.

Don't miss the short drive to the Tulum ruins, and also the 45 minute drive inland to Coba to climb a crumbling Mayan pyramid. It's the kind of thing you couldn't do in the US without a having a trial attorney waiting at the bottom for you to tumble down. Our 12 year olds made it up, but the 10 year old bailed out. All in all, a good rental for the price.

Fantastic Stay

This review is long overdue. We rented Casa Cavu for eight days for our son's wedding in Talum. Several other guests also rented villas on Tankah Bay, but Casa Cavu was the place they all gravitated to. It is warm and inviting, very comfortable and extremely clean. Rosio keeps the house immaculate and Isidro keeps it in good repair. By all means you have to have Isidro prepare some meals for you, they are all excellent, but we loved the lobster for six. The house is great, the beach and view are great, you can't go wrong with Casa Cavu.

Wonderful time at Casa Cavu!

We had a wonderful time.
The house was the perfect size.
The pool was great. Hard to get the kids in the ocean. Some great snorkeling in front of the house. So nice not to have to drive anywhere.

Icidro is a fantastic chef. All the meals were delicious. And his lime soup is the best thing I have ever had.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Just a quick note to tell you what a fabulous vacation we had at Casa Cavu. Isidro and Rosio are absolute gems and were an integral part of making the vacation so amazing. Such lovely and agreeable people. We ate very very well, as you can imagine, and were spoiled by Rosio's very high standards of cleanliness. Our two daughters were in heaven. See you again next year!

Casa Cavu is Fantastic!

  • Submitted: Mar 3, 2011

Casa Cavu was fantastic! We had a wonderful time, Isidro and his wife are great, I cannot say enough about them. My father used to be the General Manager of Sanborns, a restaurant chain throughout Mexico, so I grew up critiquing the food service business and I can tell you without a doubt that my father would have been highly impressed with both of them. The food, the presentation, the clean-up, just perfect. There really was no need to go to a restaurant! The house was spectacular, very clean, neat and tidy and kept that way the entire week despite our best efforts to mess it up. The exterior is also kept very clean and well maintained. We were also impressed with the simple amenities that you cant get in a hotel, such as the awesome selection of music, books and movies. We did not use the internet that much but to have it available, particularly for checking on our flight status, was of great comfort. We are seriously planning our next vacation down there and are very much interested in staying at Casa Cavu!

Marcia, I just wanted to drop you a quick note and say we had an awesome time, the massages were great from Budda Spa. Isidro can cook like nobody's business (ha you already knew that) and Casa Cavu was perfect. "This last week in May 2010 we took our third family vacation to Mexico.
This time we stayed in Casa Cavu on Tankah Bay... a perfect location.
The house was appropriately named after an avation term... Cavu...
meaning "Ceiling Available And Visibility Unlimited" A well needed and great
vacation". -

We stayed in Casa Cavu in May 2008. There were 4 adults, 2 4-year olds, and 2-infants. It was so wonderful and had everything we needed. We really felt no need to even leave the property. The caretakers were amazing. You must let Isidoro cook for you. Do it the first night and you will be hooked. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to a friend. You never know what you are actually going to get but Casa Cavu really looked just like the beautiful photos online.

This was a wonderful home in the Tankah Bay area of the Mayan Riveria. The home was wonderful - not too hot in June and air-conditioned bedrooms. The caretakers (Isidro and Rocio) were warm and friendly and wonderful. The location is fantastic, unless you like lots of high-rise hotels and resort action. It's relatively quiet and peaceful and very tranquil. A wonderful place to visit. We will return!
