Beachfront Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 6 max), Amazing Views & Location
We bought our land in 1999. After working on the land and learning about it we designed the house and had it built in 2003 and have been enjoying it ever since!
Ann purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Ann chose Tulum
We had been visiting this general area since the mid 1980's and found Tankah to have what we were looking for - a quiet area with astounding natural beauty, yet close to so many conveniences, attractions and places to visit and explore. We feel very fortunate to have a home in this magnificent area and enjoy sharing it with others who can also appreciate it.
What makes this Villa unique
We love the quiet, natural beauty of our land and all of our trees, the bird watching, and our beautiful ocean and jungle views. We also love the great snorkeling and kayaking that we can do right in front of our own house, along with listening to the waves at night as they lull us to sleep.

Awesome property in a wonderful place!
A great vacation had by all!
Our trip was a last minute idea after a long ski season ended and we were lucky to find Casa del Perro Feliz, as it was just what we were looking for.
The house and grounds were as advertised and immaculate. The house is nicely and comfortably furnished, the beds were comfortable and bedrooms were nice sized with their own baths which, worked out perfectly for our group since we were three couples. Also, no AC was not an issue for us, the windows and fans did the trick.
As suggested, we had Lourdes cook a few excellent meals for us, and we wandered down the street to the nearby restaurants for a little local flavor.
We loved the outdoor sitting areas and spend a lot of time just out there gazing at the ocean with beer in hand. Although not a bird watcher myself, my friends pointed out lots of cool birds at the house and I accompanied them on a bird watching trip which was amazing. I may have to get some good binoculars.
We also enjoyed the kayaks and snorkeling out by the reef. By the way, the water in Tankah is pretty calm which makes it easy for swimming and snorkeling, and during our stay there was very little seaweed in the water, unlike other places we saw. Turtles were just starting to nest when we were there - wow!
The house and Tankah are very close to some cool places to visit and explore. I enjoyed walking to the cenote down the street for snorkleing there. Our day at the Coba ruins and checking out area cenotes was awesome. Tulum is minutes away and we enjoyed shopping and exploring there too. Hope to go back to the House of the Happy Dog, still lots of things to see and do!
Can't wait to go back!
We can't wait to go back! We have stayed at other properties in the area over the past few years and thought we would give Casa del Perro Feliz a try. So glad we did! We had two other couples with us and found the house and it's location to be perfect for us. It is quite private and yet close to many things. The house had everything we needed and plenty of space for all. The house itself is very well laid out, nicely furnished, and the kitchen had everything was very well supplied. Having restaurants within walking distance was a plus too. Even though the house has no AC it was not an issue, it had plenty of windows and the cross ventilation kept us very comfortable. We all enjoyed the kayak fleet and snorkeling out in front of the house in the calm waters. The rooftop has fabulous views and evening cocktails and sunsets on the roof were a favorite part of our routine. The caretakers Ruben and Lourdes were lovely. Lourdes kept the house spotless and their cooking was fantastic, we couldn't get enough of their enchiladas! The owner Ann was very helpful throughout the reservation process and provided us excellent information and tips. The time flew by and our stay was not long enough. We are looking forward to going back soon!
LOVED this beautiful home in paradise!!
My hubby and two children had the most lovely vacation at Casa del Perro Felix during spring break! The setting is stunning, with views up and down the cove and perched directly on the beach. We loved that it was quiet with not many people, but could walk to a couple of restaurants and bike to the local cenote. Be sure to bring water shoes as the water is pretty rocky. The house is perfect - clean, open and cool. We biked, swam and took the kayaks out daily. We went into Tulum a few times for meals and to explore other beaches, but for the most part stayed home and had home cooked meals prepared for us by Lourdes and Rubin. They were SO YUMMY! I highly recommend you have at least a few meals prepared. Lourdes and Rubin were so kind and were available whenever we needed help or had questions. And the owner Ann was so wonderful to work with! We will definitely be back!!!
The nicest place we have stayed in Mexico
We have stayed in the big places in Mexico (Cancun & Cozumel).
This place (Casa del Perro Felix) blew us away.
The positives on this fantastic place are astronomically impossible to calculate.
We enjoyed the peaceful beach and neighborhood.
You will not have a better bay view in such a high end house at this price.
The house is decorated with hand made furniture and artwork from the area.
Very comfortable if you are lounging around or just enjoying the scenery.
Beds are very comfortable, kitchen is well laid out and stocked with equipment.
You have EVERYTHING you need for a dream vacation.
The caretakers (Lourdes & Ruben) are unobtrusive and absolute gems.
We elected to have them cook our meals for us.
I cannot say enough good things about all of their meal preparations.
My wife is a strict vegetarian who is also very picky about the products used in the kitchen.
Lourdes and Ruben understood and provided us with a stellar culinary week.
You cannot go wrong employing them to be your kitchen magicians!
The area that the house sits in is a perfect place to stage your activities.
Whether it's exploring the ruins of Tulum, swimming in a cenote, or just enjoying the peace and quiet of Tankah Bay, this house rocks.
It's hard to beat walking out the door the first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee in hand and seeing the beautiful blue waters of the bay right in front of you.
Ann (owner) was so helpful in everything associated with her property.
She provided us with information about the area and what to expect.
With Ann, all of our travel plans went as we had expected.
We found her helpful and informative - she has been coming down to this area for 30+ years - Ask her, she will know.
We will come back again and again - this place is what a Mexican vacation is all about.
Thanks Ruben and Lourdes, your food and hospitality is the best in your country.
We LOVE this place !

Wow. Just Wow.
Can't say much more. Fantastic house, amazing location, great caretakers (and cook!). One of the best vacation locations I've had, ever.
We loved the sunrises, the sunsets, the sun, the rain and everything in between.
Didn't want to leave. Tasol.
Amazing house... amazing location!!
My family and I (12 year old son and husband) stayed at this amazing house for 9 days. The pictures do not do it justice. The property is absolutely amazing! The views are gorgeous from the bedrooms, the rooftop deck, the hammocks and, of course, from the beach itself. We loved using the kayaks that were provided. We snorkeled right off of the beach and saw a large variety of beautiful fish and coral. The palapa with hammocks was perfect... we enjoyed them every day. We enjoyed riding our bikes to the local restaurants/bar and to the little shop down the street. This was a perfect homebase location to travel to several of the Mayan ruins and eco-parks. The property manager, Ruben, and his wife, Lordes, were the best!! We had them cook breakfast and dinner for us several times. The food was absolutely AMAZING!!! They served breakfast outside, which was wonderful. Also, Ruben makes an excellent Margarita! We loved having the dogs on the property. We were able to play and go for walks with them... Very cute! The house was immaculate! It was cleaned every day. Ruben and Lordes helped us figure out where to go, where to eat, etc. I can't say enough about them. We were fortunate enough to meet Ann, the property owner, when we arrived. She was lovely and so easy to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone and I hope that my family and I get to return very soon. We did not want to leave!!
