The Elefante Volador is surrounded only by uncontaminated wild nature, 19 km drive from the 'hot' Tulum Playa . Amazing white sandy beach with nobody around.
Every object in the house has its own story and soul; it was found and brought there. The house has its own personality that you can feel as soon as you step inside. Everybody falls in love with it: once there, they never want to leave! During my first Christmas there, I fell asleep listening to the soothing ocean sounds and the smelling the wind; these memories stayed with me for weeks after I returned home.
The colors define spaces and volumes. Skilights and windows at each side, give a 360 view of the entire Sian Kaan reserve, and a small pool on the top terrace gives a breathtaking view of the nearby lagoon and towards the unforgettable sunsets.
A very big round 'palapa' is the natural continuation of the inside towards the outside, with its spacious sofas, chill out areas and open kitchen.
The sky over Tulum is a special. Some say it¹s closer to the earth. Actually, Mayan people were good astronomers! Lying down on the terrace, you feel that you can touch the stars. The house is wrapped around in natural features, and from morning to night you feel stunned by beauty.
A walk along the bay takes about one hour and a half of strolling with your feet in the water. If you prefer to be still, you can lay on the hammock looking at the waves until dusk, and then you can move on to the terrace to watch the sun disappear into the lagoon.
Herons, Pelicans, Frigate birds and Iguanas are our daily guests, as well as Panchita and Chakeron and the illustrious half-breed Mayan dogs.
From May to September, the world¹s biggest Tortoises come to lay eggs on the seashore in front of the house. We counted 24 tortoises that came to lay eggs on our beach! 15 minutes North the house you can rent a boat to visit the lagoon and watch crocodiles, manatees, flamingos, eagles and Mayan ruins.
