All (almost) perfect

My dream come true by coming to this house/location: an entire ocean front villa with an amazing turquoise Caribbean sea all for you and your family and nobody else around.
And you can get all this with a nice price
The villa in fact is very nice and pretty big and as far as I saw it is the most convenient of that area, in fact basically for the same price you can get the entire villa, whereas other houses I contacted they would have given only one of the two floor.
Other important thing when you go to such wild heavens, you will have the house owner that is very kind and assist you in any question you may have about house/location until you get there.
Everything was very well managed: you will meet there a local house manager (who speaks a perfect English) once in Xcalak other than a caretaker (who can arrange a rustic BBQ on request if you wish).
From a scale 1 to 10 I would give 8,5 to this house just because with some small cheap details the house would be perfect: for example it could be provided a tent/big umbrella on the amazing terrace with a stunning view that villa has to stay more protected from the strong sun; because only like that you may have lunch/dinner/breakfast because without some kind of cover you cannot stay more than 10 minutes with Caribbean sun on your head (unless you are not like an iguana…).
Also another table and chair/bed could be put on the terrace to better enjoy it.
A BBQ could complete the perfection (even though it may be arranged the rustic one by the caretaker)…
Other than this small details, my vacation was perfect more than expected (except the argue with a fisherman guide who took my fishing catch, a big barracuda, after he told me he would give to me as part of the package tour paid….but this has nothing to do with house, only an advice if you decide to come to Xclalak for fishing as well, just clear up with a guide very very well this point if you go fishing, they sometimes try to be smart and keep the catch if that is going to be very good)

Definitely I would recommend this house and Xcalak to whoever would like to spend sometime in a breathtaking place and experience the sensation to have an ocean front villa…Caribbean ocean not a normal one …

Beautiful Seclusion

We spent 2 weeks at Casa Tranquila in December and early January with side trips to Chetumal, Bacalar and Mahahual. Casa Tranquila is a wonderful house, well furnished and equipped(we cooked many meals) with on site caretakers who make sure the beach is clean every morning and keep the house in good running order and are there to assist but not intrude. As noted the house has solar, wind and generator power so there were no issues with electricity. Water pressure was great and hot!! The water in front of the house is shallow but fish abound, we snorkeled often and saw schools in several locations, even a couple of curious barracuda. The road in front of the house is barely traveled but luckily local people selling fish, shrimp and vegetables appear a few times a week with excellent product. We even bought home made flan from a couple of kids on a motorbike which was great. We visited Xcalak Caribe, had a great lunch and even better conversation with Freddy the owner. The Leaky Palapa lived up to all the wonderful comments. People at XTC dive center were very helpful with information, Senior Felipe Fonseca helped us get our National Park passes and Moyses who is the local agent gave us our keys and got us off to a great start. Mike owns the house and was excellent to deal with, before, during and after our visit. Never met him but he was available by email whenever we needed something or had a question. We used a collapsible cooler on wheels as a piece of luggage which made it easier to shop for food in Tulum before we arrived. Bring food, supplement with local purchases and restaurants, swim and RELAX.
