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 kitchen and living area are open and inviting. The dining area seats 8 and embraces the natural landscape. 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.

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 de las Palmas - Stunning House on Tulum Beach!
average rating of 4.92 based on 25 reviews

Great stay in Tulum - beautiful beach in a private setting, but close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Casa de Las Palmas for a family vacation. Private homes with some resort amenities. All villas are oceanfront / oceanview or a few steps away from the beautiful beach. There are 4 villas on the property, but the setup is so private that you don't notice any of the other properties. The location was perfect, just beside Sanara, and you can walk to lots of restaurants, bars, & other resorts. The property manager, Chabley & the team, were very helpful and went out of the way to make sure we had a wonderful vacation. Will be back again soon.

Exceeded every expectation for a long weekend with Friends !

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a long weekend celebrating my special birthday. We stayed at Casa Las Palmas and spent much of our weekend plotting our next trip to this spectacular place and whom we would bring with us to live in the other houses on the property !! There are other villas in your small world there but they fall into the scenery and you barely notice. Guy and Chebaly are warm, fun, attentive and each recommendation they gave us was better than the next !! The location could not be better - amazing quiet and privacy yet minutes from the hustle and bustle of the shops and cafes. The kitchen was perfect for simple needs, the beds were insanely comfortable, the beach palapas and chairs and towels were plenty and all were consistently clean and available. Don't miss this property !!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a beautiful 9 days at Casa de las Palmas! The house itself is elegantly decorated and wonderfully function as a beach residence. The grounds of the property are equally as fantastic as the house. The true beauty of the property is twofold:

Location - fantastic beach out your back door and close to wonderful Tulum restaurants and attractions

People - Guy (owner) and Chabely (guest services) are incredibly helpful, a pleasure to be around as well as just all around kind and nice people.

We will definitely be back.

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.
