About the property

3 BR House on Tulum beach, families welcome (sleeps 8)

Casa de las Palmas is a beautiful post and beam house on Tulum's white sand beach. Artistically designed with curved walls and natural accents, this bright home is perfect for small groups or families.

The sliding glass doors create a seamless connection with the outdoors. Open the windows and doors for a sea breeze while you relax and enjoy your private living space. The kitchen and living area are open and inviting. The dining area seats 8 and embraces the natural landscape. The sand is at your doorstep.

Centrally located on the beach so you can walk to great restaurants, join a yoga class next door, or sip a cocktail at La Zebra in the afternoon. You are close to everything but tucked away amidst the foliage and greenery of a quiet property.

There are three bedrooms, well separated for privacy. You can share this house with your family or invite another family to join. Each of the upstairs bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The master suite has a king sized bed and room for a small child bed or crib if needed. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen bed + 2 singles, perfect for a family. The third bedroom is located on the main floor and has a queen bed and balcony. It is garden facing.

The rooftop offers a stunning 360 view of the jungle and the sea. It is a perfect place for sunsets and stargazing or private suntanning. The rooftop has a partly shaded roof and a covered daybed.

There are shade palapas and lounge chairs on the beach for you to enjoy. We also have boogie boards and sea kayaks for you to use.

About Snow Colbeck

My name is Snow and I manage the bookings at the Casa De las Palmas. I have been coming to this property for over 10 years when my parents first bought the land. As a family we have walked this beach and played in the waves for many years. My own children (now 8 & 11) have enjoyed the warm water and soft sand since they were babies. I love the stunning beach and the simplicity of Tulum. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. When I am not on the beach I live in BC, Canada with my family enjoying the outdoors.

Why Snow Colbeck chose Quintana Roo

Casa De Las Palmas is the first house my parents built. It captures the essence of Tulum - blending in with nature, soft lines, comfortable, and well-designed, with a gorgeous rooftop patio to capture the sunsets over the mangrove. If you want the luxury of your own house on the beach with the ease of great restaurants a short walk away this is the place. It has a magic feel to it.

What makes this house unique

This house is great for families and small groups. It is comfortable for 2 - 8 people. There is great foliage for privacy, beautiful sea views and breezes, a rooftop patio and a shaded area in front with palm trees and hammocks. You have your own shade palapas on the beach and loungers so you can relax and take in the beauty.

Casa Des Las Palmas was a beautiful magical oasis. The Gaudiesque style was completely charming

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it. Guy was very sensitive and accommodating. The cleanliness and friendliness of the staff was remarkable. As a cautions to other travelers (especially from northern climates), it is at times very humid there. Just be prepared for that.

When you only get to spend time with all your very best friends a few days a year, the biggest priority is staying somewhere that allows you to make the most of your limited time together. This was that place. The house is nestled a few yards back from the best spot on the beach - private, yet convenient. The property was gracefully incorporated into the environment so from the inside, you felt invited out, and from the outside, you felt invited in. Guy, Snow and Bernardo were excellent - reliable, friendly, helpful & communicative. We felt so welcomed and taken care of - we can't thank them enough for making us feel so at home. They provided large cooler-jugs of purified water for drinking and brushing your teeth, along with bug candles, flashlights, beach towels, games, books, and bluetooth speakers - goes without saying the place was well equipped. Irma, the chef you can hire to cook for you during the stay, was not only a phenomenal cook, but a wonderful person we looked forward to seeing each day. Her food was amazing - hands down better than anything we had when we went out to eat (and far more affordable). Can not recommend her enough. If you've got a big group and don't want to stay in separate places - this is the place to be. Thank you for the best vacation! We'll be back.

The Best Place to Stay in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

We rented all of Guy's villas for our wedding in Tulum and it was the best decision ever! It allowed all of our guests to be together for the entire weekend and gave us access to the best stretch of beach and the best restaurants in Tulum. The villas are perfectly located and Guy and Snow could not be more responsive and more helpful in answering questions and getting you acclimated. The beach in front of the villas has an amazing set up with beds and lounge chairs and the views from Las Palmas are incredible. We had a little cocktail hour on the roof during our stay and the views of the sunset and both the ocrean and the jungle are incredible! The house itself is beyond beautiful and has everything you could ever want during your stay. Honestly we could not recommend Guy's properties any more highly as the best place to stay in all of Tulum. Thank you for everything!

Beautiful Beach

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a week at Casa de las Palmas. We did a lot of research on this property before we arrived and felt like we probably should do other researchers the service of setting their expectations if they were to book this property.

The House - This is a true beach house; it's designed to incorporate it's surroundings and it's feels very bohemian. It is by no means luxurious in it's furnishings and linens. Expect bugs - they live there and you will notice them if you leave food out. Expect to sleep on top of your sheets for most of the night - there is no air conditioning. The lack of AC may have been the single biggest draw back for our party. The nights were VERY warm. Other reviewers said it was tolerable with the breeze but I honestly have to disagree. It was hot for us but it may have been a warmer week. Even with the doors wide open to the ocean breeze, floor and ceiling fans running the breeze never seemed to fully make it into the house. I highly recommend using the ice trays provided when you arrive and have a steady supply of it available.

Service - The property was extremely well managed and the staff really goes above and beyond to accommadate your party. We had 2 year old and an infant traveling with us. A high chair, 2 pack'n'plays, a baby bath tub and sand toys were all made available to use and ready upon arrival. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the house was cleaned daily (except for Sunday). The staff is all very pleasant and it's easy to feel at home here.

Beach - INCREDIBLE. The staff did a nice job cleaning it up every morning and the water temperature was perfect. The sand was soft and we spent lots of time under the palapas and using the kayaks provided by the property. The house also came with beach toys for our son and were a great bonus. We loved that the beach was so close to the house because it meant our son wasn't running out the front door into the ocean, but going back and forth between the house and beach to refresh our drinks only took a few seconds.

Location - This property is really unique for the area. There are 3, soon to be 4, individual residences on the property and it's surrounded by boutique hotels (which is a good thing). We have the privacy and space of a rental home but the convenience of bars and restaurants within walking distance. We tried Eufemia, Le Zebra and Casa Banana. All were very good and are worth a try.

Overall I would recommend this property in cooler months. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us on Tulum Beach. It was a pleasure to host you and your family and see everyone enjoying themselves. Our homes are designed to connect to nature and embrace the magical feeling of living on the beach. Tulum is generally blessed with a breeze that keeps the beach and our homes comfortable. Your visit was during a time of no wind and things were warmer than usual. Please let us know if you need more 'wind' and we can provide portable fans. We treat for ants, mosquitos, etc so they are not part of your experience. However, if food is left out... the temptation for the little ants is too much despite our efforts. If there is anything you need please let us know, we always do our best to ensure you have a wonderful time with us. We have excellent staff and check in with you daily to see how you are doing and to see if there is anything else we can do for you during your stay. We want everyone to relax, connect, and enjoy the place.

Perfect spot for our wedding week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented both Casa Mandala and Casa de Las Palmas to host our two families for our destination wedding. We were able to spend time at both houses all together and have our own space when we wanted it. Guy was around to offer suggestions on restaurants and was very flexible with our check out times. The beach front is absolutely spectacular. We also did hire the chef for two meals, and she was amazing. It was tad warm some nights, but there is both a ceiling fan and floor fan. I would definitely recommend this property and my husband and I will be back for sure!
