Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvelous time and the last 5 days were a dream come true!! Your home is fabulous. Your attention to detail is exquisite. The new chandelier is breathtaking. The pool, the views of the ocean, the rooftop patio, and the fountain were even more beautiful than we expected. Manuel and Luisa added an authentic flair to our Mexican experience & were such a pleasure to be around.

Awesome House Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. They house and beach were perfect. Manual and Louisa were warm and welcoming. The Tulum area has a lot to do. Fabulous restaurants nearby in Tulum Beach. I️ enjoyed lazing by the pool and had my morning coffee on the beach everyday!

Gorgeous inside and out + BABY SEA TURTLES!!!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family (parents, siblings, spouses and kids) just spent a week at this amazing Villa and had a wonderful time! Bottom line: Come to Tulum and stay in this villa -- it is absolutely perfect! Here are some key highlights/things to note:

1. The owners are very helpful & answered all of my questions before our arrival. They recommended rental cars through Hertz and their contact, Mirna. This was a great recommendation, as Mirna really took care of us. (FYI, it does take awhile to get your car once you arrive at the Hertz facility -- bring snacks and water :))

2. The drive to Tulum from Cancun was very easy - highway the whole way. Once you arrive to the area, there is a about a 10-12 minute drive on a dirt road to the house. If you pass the Blu Sky Hotel and the Cenote (Tankah) - you are on the right path.

3. The house itself is AMAZING. Every bedroom is great, fully stocked kitchen and spectacular views all around! The pool was a major highlight - as were all the decks. We spent every night on the roof enjoying the ocean breeze and watching sea turtles (more on that below). One thing to note - it wasn't a problem for us - but the wifi was spotty at best and missing most of the time. If you are planning to work from here, that could be a problem.

4. Manuel and Luisa - The home caretakers were the best! As soon as we arrived, Manuel cut down coconuts and we had fresh coconut water. The groceries were waiting for us -- and by the evening Luisa had whipped up an amazing meal. Her cooking was GREAT - and very convenient. I think price wise - it did end up costing a bit more then eating at a restaurant -- but it was very delicious, very convenient -- and she often times made enough that we would eat leftovers for lunch.. so in that sense - it was comparable. Both her & Manuel awesome & made sure the house and beach were always in excellent condition.

5. The beach - So there is a seaweed issue on the east coast of MX -- which made the beach fairly unswimmable. Though Manuel did clean it everyday -- so it was much better than our neighbors beach! It was also rocky - so even if we did wade into it - we would be wearing swim shoes. But honestly - it wasn't a problem-bc the most amazing thing about this beach (& maybe this vacay) was the hatching sea turtles! Each day we would find DOZENS of babies hatching and help them (w/manuel's instruction) to the ocean..& at night we would see mama's making nests and laying eggs. Felt magical!

Spectacular Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had the best, most relaxing vacation in Tulum at this gorgeous home. The house was immaculate, with plenty of space for everyone, and plenty of places to lounge, whether around the pool, on the beach under the palapa, or on 1 of the 2 decks. Rooftop deck is a pretty spectacular place to see the sunset and the stars. Pool is beautiful, and kept the kids happy. There were pool floats, games, and movies also. Canadian satellite TV.

What makes this place unique are the caretakers, Manuel and Louisa. Incredible service (always with a smile), and Louisa's meals were better than those we ate out (our favorite was chicken enchiladas and her flan is to-die-for). Also the owner was very responsive and helpful. We took advantage of having groceries ready for us when we arrived. Also, the sea turtles! There were at least 6 nests right in front of this house alone, and we saw baby turtles.

Things to do: we snorkeled in Dos Ojos cenote and it was awesome. There is another right by the house. We also visited the ruins. We ate at Blue Sky just down the road, food was great, service was good too. Also highly recommend eating at Jashita Hotel, just north on Solimon Bay. Outstanding food and service, beautiful view right on the beach. We drove to Tulum on beach days since it is very rocky in the water here. Not swimmable here without getting banged up. We ate breakfast at The Real Coconut at Sanara hotel, then they would allow us to have some chairs/umbrellas. Beach there is gorgeous- white powdery sand.

I would recommend renting a car. We loved that this home was located where it was, but everything is a drive, albeit short. We rented from Hertz once we arrived in Tulum.

The only mild snafoo we ran into was the driver from the airport, which was recommended by the property owner, got a little lost trying to find the home. For some reason he thought we were at a hotel in Tulum, despite having been provided the address ahead.

I would DEFINITELY return to this property!

House is beautiful. Onsite staff is excellent: always helpful, never intrusive, + Louisa's food service is a real crowd pleaser. On top of all that: GIANT SEA TURTLES on the beach every night during our stay.

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for extended family ages 7-80 as a family member was having a destination wedding in Tulum. A great oasis away from town. Manuel and Louisa were great and we enjoyed several meals at Villa Escapar. The property was well kept and very comfortable. We has issues and brain damage with renting cars from Cancun Airport ( required large deposits, car reserved not available etc) resulting is several wedding attendees hiring USA Transfers and they were amazing! $190 rt for 6 people in my party. Probably 30 people from the wedding used them and no one had an issue. They even tracked down and returned someone’s misplaced wallet and passport! If you are looking for a relaxing place to “escape” Villa Escapar is it!

Awesome Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome! The pool was big and great for relaxing and having a few cocktails. The whole place was well appointed from the big bedrooms to the kitchen and grill out back. They also have satellite which was nice cause we were able to watch the nfl playoffs from the pool. The beach was beautiful as well but its not really good for swimming due to the rocks. If you want to swim in the ocean its only a short walk down the road to access a nice beach or cenote. Scuba diving the cenotes in tulum was awesome and this place is close enough to town and all the dive shops. The housekeeper also did an awesome job taking care of the place and can really whip up a great meal! Bottom line i would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a top of the line place to stay!
