My stay at Casa De Las Palmas was nothing short of exquisite, inspiring, soporific and magical. The palms swaying in the breeze, the ocean caressing my skin and the pearly white sand massaging my toes. The home is on a quiet stretch of gorgeous beach. As you ascend the beautifully crafted and curved front staircase, you are met by a Buddha that symbolizes the essence of the home. The bedrooms are filled with white and blues, with light filtering through circular blue glass, and an open-air patio with views to the Palms and the Sea. The kitchen and living room are brilliant with reds, shades of ochre and gold, while gorgeous art drips off the white walls, creating a bright and inspired place to cook, read, write or dance. The patio off the kitchen looks out onto the sea and having a meal there is an enchanted experience. You can cook in the inspiring kitchen or enjoy awesome gastronomy at a beachside restaurant next store. Casa De Las Palmas hosts; Bonnie and Bob will also hire a cook for you if you so desire. Arched and domed ceilings create a very open, inspiring feel to the home. I photographed many sunrises and sunsets from the rooftop deck and one morning we watched an owl protect her bit of treetop from a myriad of competing birds, and then a flamingo flew by. Tulum at any time of the year is spectacular with many things to do such as diving cenotes or in the sea, visiting amazing ruins or jungle tours, but mostly one chooses to just be…at the house…Casa De Las Palmas. What is truly uncommon is the level of professionalism, enthusiasm and genuine friendliness of the hosts Bonnie and Bob and their staff. They are tremendous and a great help to all who stay there. The house is visionary, a gorgeous architectural gem and one feels as though one is in a great cathedral of ‘chill’, reminiscent of the Mediterranean, Greece or Morocco. My stay at Casa De Las Palmas was such a wondrous and uncommon journey forever etched in my memory. I have worked and travelled in over 50 countries and this is definitely one my very best travel experiences, on the planet.
