Casa Rosa is among the most exquisite rental properties in the entire Mayan Riviera, and by far one of the premier homes in Tankah and Soliman Bays. We have a newly remodeled kitched with granite counters, professional gas stove and premier knive's and cookware. We are among the most accessible, with the most privacy, the best and largest pure sand beach, the most gorgeous pool, and the most elegant and well appointed interior. We have three magnificent outdoor dining and relaxing decks on each of our three stories, which provide ample and luxurious places to enjoy a meal, private sun bathing or star gazing with exceptional 360 degree views of the Mayan Riviera.
We love our home away from home, and hope that you will find Casa Rosa as exceptional a place to visit as our many guests have over the years.
BEACHFRONT: Casa Rosa is a beautiful beachfront villa located just north of Tulum, nestled on a bay known as Tankah Tres, on the Mayan Riviera, which is home to some of the prettiest beaches in the world. Casa Rosa's beachfront is among the most perfect in the bay, with 50 feet of crystal white sands leading into a tranquil bay with a coral reef which awaits kayakers and snorkelers. All the homes in Tankah Tres are on 1/2 acre lots, so there's peace and quiet.
RELAXATION: The palm tree shaded house is less than 50 feet from the Caribbean and you can swim, snorkel, kayak or just play in the warm turquoise water, or take in the whole picturesque scene seated poolside. This relaxed luxury appeals to both children and adults!
CONVENIENCE: Because we are situated between Akumal and Tulum and just off the main highway, Casa Rosa is a great home base for your Akumal, Tulum and Coba adventures. Akumal's famous turtle bay is 15 minutes to the north, Tulum's beachfront ruins and big beaches are just ten minutes away, while the stately Coba ruins are 40 minutes away, and the stunning Chichen-Itza is a 3 hour drive. A library, satellite cable TV, CD's and DVD's and wifi are all provided.
Relax by the pool or nap beachside in a hammock or chaise lounge. If you are feeling athletic, there are 2 two person kayaks available for your enjoyment. Bring dive and/or snorkel gear (or rent it from the local dive shops) since Tankah contains a beautiful reef teaming with colorful fish, turtles, and rays.

We have traveled to Tankha Bay since 2007, and stayed at Casa Rosa our last 2 times. There simply is NO better location, beachfront and privacy for an authentic Mexican experience. Sure there are larger, more modern places but they lack the charming appeal of this amazing home. The kitchen remodel and outdoor grill/table were outstanding and well-used on our part! Bernardino, Maria and Noel are wonderful and helpful. Have Maria cook for you one (or more) nights for a special treat. The only request we would make is 1. A complete first aid kit and 2. A few plastic adirondak chairs for easy moves to the beach for reading. We'll be back!
My wife and I and our four "adult" children just returned from a week at Casa Rosa on beautiful Tankah Bay immediately north of Tulum. This property was precisely right for our group and "as advertised" in every respect.
The house is generously sized with 4 ample bedrooms - two "master" suites (one down; one up) and two nicely appointed secondary bedrooms on the first floor. The kitchen is huge and well-equipped. The living area is comfortable. The house offers all the comforts of home. The air conditioning works very well - important for a trip like ours in August. The oceanfront terraces and decks are wonderful for relaxing during the day or in the evening. The pool is great for a quick dip to cool off or simply relax. The setting in a small grove of coconut palms with hammocks strung between a couple is idyllic in every way.
The staff is wonderful. Bernardino is the groundskeeper and general all-around go-to-guy for whatever you need - including a refreshing coconut drink right out of the nut he's pulled off one of the trees on the beach. Maria does a great job keeping things inside and out spotless and fresh towels in the bathrooms (there are 3 - with plenty of hot water). We didn't get a chance to sample one of Maria's meals (we understand they're wonderful) because we found too many great places in Tulum to eat, but we arrived to find a big batch of freshly made guacamole and Pico de Gallo in the frig along with a bag of chips - all very welcome since we didn't arrive to the house until 8:00 PM on our day or arrival (we asked her to repeat the guacamole, which she did to perfection). From sundown to sunrise, Noel patrols the grounds, keeping an eye out for security and for any nesting or hatching sea turtles (and making really cute crafts from palm fronds).
Being there in August, we had the possibility of seeing turtles nest or hatch. The hatching usually occurs during the dead of night. When we arrived, we found the beach in front of the house and north and south literally covered with turtle nesting spots (each carefully marked and dated). Amazingly, two of those nests right in front of Casa Rosa hatched in the early evening while it was still light and we witnessed the most amazing spectacle of literally hundred of little turtles (200 +/- per next) coming up out of the sand and heading straight to the water. We've never seen anything like it before and will never forget it.
In short, I can't recommend Casa Rosa more highly.
Stayed a week with my husband and 6 children ages 5-18. Perfect spot right on the beach-which was absolutely beautiful! We loved the beach, kayaks, swings, roomy kitchen and basically everything about this property! There was great water pressure in the showers which I appreciate. The information packet was the most informative and best I have ever received from a vacation rental property. Wonderful owner and property manager communication and the housekeeper and gardener were so helpful. I like having them there during the days and the security guard at night. All were very friendly and helpful and just made the stay even that much more enjoyable. I sometimes feel vulnerable traveling with so many children, but this vacation I felt was safe and it was wonderfully relaxing. We had Bernardino and Maria (the gardner and housekeeper) prepare a meal for us one ever bing and it was delicious! We had the Mayan barbecue chicken, Mexican beans, and caramel flan.
Even though I would rent a vehicle again, I will say that our experience with Fox/Mex rental agency was not good. They took forever getting us a different vehicle than we had reserved and the insurance which we thought would be $16 per day ended up being $31 (full coverage and on a suburban).
We visited Tulum and Coba ruins and Playa Parraiso (most beautiful beach!). We got a guide at both ruins and enjoyed all the information they shared with us. We got bikes (and Mayan limos) at Coba and it was a fun experience- the kids loved it. We ate at the restaurant out front of Coba which was reasonably priced and excellent food and large portions. We also ate at Mateos in Tulum Pueblo-it was good and the atmosphere was enjoyable-the kids made friends with a large iguana there that they threw bits of food to and the staff didn't mind. The whole area is interesting, beautiful, and a memorable experience for all ages. We looked into vacationing at many other Caribbean areas and I'm very happy that we chose here to vacation!
Also, there were many DVDs, games, hats (we loved the hats!) and other little things that made our stay comfortable and even more enjoyable than we could have ever hoped or asked for! Thank you!
This was the perfect place to bring the family (9 of us, 3 were children) for Thanksgiving and to celebrate my 70th birthday. So much to do, the beach, the towns, and especially Casa Rosa. The layout is perfect --- everyone had their own space and the outdoors had plenty of shade when needed. The pool was delightful. The grandkids were in the Caribbean or pool so much they might have grown gills! Can't say enough -- everything was perfect. My wife surprised me with a band for the celebration, Maria cooked for us, Bernardino assisted and kept the place spotless. Perfect place for a family vacation!
As a travel writer and photographer for more than a decade, I have travelled extensively throughout Mexico and had the great fortune to experience amazing beaches on each of its coasts. My wife and I have also rented homes throughout the country and, without question, Casa Rosa is the best we have found. We rented the house to celebrate my father’s 80th birthday and my wife’s 40th birthday and it is difficult to express what a true pleasure it was to have Casa Rosa as our home for those ten days. The house very comfortably accommodated five adults and two small children and offered quiet and privacy, but with ready access to all Tulum has to offer. Minutes from the ruins and the many excellent restaurants in town, Casa Rosa was the perfect getaway. The house itself is clean and everything is perfectly maintained. Whether lounging in one of the hammocks in the cool breeze coming off the Caribbean Sea, watching sea turtles lay their eggs on our beach, enjoying a delicious meals prepared by the warm and accommodating caretakers, Bernadino and Maria, our stay at Casa Rosa inspired a rare sense of contentment and tranquility. I can’t recommend Casa Rosa highly enough. Our only complaint is that it will now be hard to stay anywhere else—some of our friends have already booked the house and we’re planning to do the same next year!
We just returned from an amazing, relaxing stay at Casa Rosa. We were two families, with two young kids each ranging from 10 months to 4 years and the house worked perfectly. All the rooms were spacious and clean. The setting could not be more beautiful! A quiet beach (we saw only a few people a day pass by), a pool, swings, hammocks, kayaks, etc were all at our fingertips. You are a 10-15 minute drive to Tulum with its large grocery stores, restaurants, shops and beaches. The house is very well taken care of, the kitchen is stocked with all the equipment you need and you can even have groceries ordered and delivered for you before you arrive, and if you need to connect with those back home there's free long distance and wi-fi. There's really nothing missing from Casa Rosa! One thing to note: you do need a car. Friends of ours had stayed at Casa Rosa the year before and recommended it to us and we were not disappointed!
