About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Casa Perla del Mar awarded Top Tulum Vacation Rental three years in a row. Designed by acclaimed architect Ismael Diaz, Casa Perla is a premiere Mediterranean-style villa along the Mayan Riviera. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway or an unforgettable vacation with family and friends. This unique and spacious home is nestled between the blue Caribbean and the luscious Mayan jungle. To insure your total relaxation, our staff is available 6 days a week to clean and prepare dinner upon request. Cost of food is not included.

With meticulous attention to detail, Casa Perla reflects the rich color, texture and artistry of the Yucatan. It features unique hand stenciling throughout the home as is traditional in the beautiful haciendas of the region. All of the doors, cabinets and furniture are locally handmade with the finest craftsmanship.

Three of the 4 bedrooms have king-size beds and the 4th has 1 bunk bed - perfect for children. Each has a picture postcard view of the sea or jungle, top-of-the-line Sealy Pillow Top mattresses, custom handmade draperies with blackout lining, and air conditioning for a restful sleep on imported 600 thread-count sheets.

Every bedroom has a private bathroom with sinks and countertops cut from local stones and exquisite fossilized shells. Each is appointed with the highest quality 100% Turkish cotton towels.

Casa Perla boasts two well-appointed kitchens with gorgeous Mexican granite countertops. You will arrive to find each fully stocked including a coffee maker, blender and microwave. The downstairs kitchen is poolside so you are just steps away from an ice-cold Mexican beer or chips and freshly made guacamole.

Each of Casa Perla’s kitchens have a view of the jungle and the stunning Mayan sunset. It’s not unusual to see an amazing array of colorful birds. Our binoculars and books will help you to identify them though it will be easy to spot our gorgeous pink flamingos!

The upstairs dining room seats 8 comfortably and 6 can be seated downstairs.

Each of the two large family rooms features a 42” flat screen TV and opens to one of our four outdoor verandas.

In addition to our verandas, Casa Perla has a rooftop deck with stunning 360-degree views. Wake up early and listen to the waves crashing on the shore as you watch the sun rise over the Caribbean. In the daytime the verandas are a perfect place to appreciate the flora and fauna of the Mayan jungle. There are literally thousands of rainbow-colored flowers and birds. And to see the sun set over the ancient Mayan jungle is breathtaking.

Casa Perla is only 50 meters (165 feet) from the water’s edge. Guests enjoy great shelling along the secluded beach or spectacular snorkeling and scuba diving directly in front of the house. If you visit between mid-May and November you can experience one of nature’s most unforgettable sights – Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in May and the hatchlings dash for the sea in November.

If you don’t feel like visiting the beach, our dark-bottom pool is as refreshing as it is beautiful. Comfortable lounge chairs were custom-made to enjoy a great book or relax with a chilled margarita. A wall surrounding the perimeter of the house assures total privacy as you bathe in the sun or enjoy a poolside bbq fiesta. Don’t worry about packing beach towels or pool toys for the kids; Casa Perla has them for you.

Free WiFi is available throughout the house.

About Victor

Tulum is a magical place and we had the chance to first experience it 20 plus years ago… remained in our heart and mind for another 13 years. When our son was born we would often take him to the very chilly beaches we have here in Northern California – one day my little frozen child looked at me and asked “mommy, do they have warm beaches?” A few months later we planned our trip back to Tulum and rented a house on Tankah Bay. We purchased the lot that week and began to build our slice of heaven, in October of 2009. The artistry and beauty of the great haciendas of Merida, and the Yucatan were our inspiration for Casa Perla del Mar. The inspiration for the name of our home however, is our dog Perla. We are of course, pet friendly! The Yucatan has something unique to fall in love with on every visit. Having been blessed with the opportunity to travel the world – Tulum remains at the top of the list.

Victor purchased this house in 2010

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of two grandparents, two parents, and three active grandsons. We just stayed at Casa Perla for spring break 2017 and the grounds and home could NOT have been more perfect. The property was beautifully maintained by two caretakers and the cook provided us with delicious dinners. We did some exploring around Tulum but pretty much stayed at the villa.

So relaxing and can't wait to return.

We did have intermittent WiFi connection but the owner was very responsive and contacted the WiFi company who replaced some equipment which improved the service. It gave us all the opportunity to have more human conversations and less devices.

All good!

Thanks Victor.

Beautiful villa in a very private setting

  • 5 of 5

Casa Perla del Mar is quite stunning. The house is very spacious with lots of private settings to enjoy privacy and a break from your travel companions. The house is spotless and the grounds are maintained besutifully. The pool is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy drinks and the sun. Wi fi works great in case you need to some work. The area is very safe and there are three restaurants and a cenote within walking distance. I highly recommend Casa Perla del Mar.

Magnificent Casa de Perla!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd time to this beautiful home and it was even more stunning the 2nd time! The home is beautifully decorated with gorgeous and unique artworks. Nice layout of the home with plenty of room for 4 couples each with their own bedroom and bath. The yard was so nice and relaxing and dips in the pool were refreshing. Roof top sunrises and sunsets looking at the ocean and the jungle were magical. All though we could have just stayed at this beautiful home all the time, it was close to the town of Tulum and their gorgeous white sand beaches and fantastic restaurants which we enjoyed very much. A trip to Coba is also a must see - very interesting! The temperatures, light breezes and calm relaxing place to come home to made the entire stay memorable. Hope to go back many more times!

Amazing and exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained, immaculate stunning vacation home. Pictures don't do it justice as it's better in person. Wonderful separate spaces and ensuites. We rented for a milestone anniversary with our three adult children and partners. It was perfect for our needs. Location was secure, and excellent out of hustle and bustle but close enough for trips to eat and shop and go to other beaches. The help were reliable and efficient. Italy is an excellent cook. The pool is perfect and the rooftop deck was a hidden gem to watch sunrises, sunsets and the incredible full moon last week. Would completely recommend!

Authentic, Rustically Modern, Charming

  • 5 of 5

As I traveled down the meandering road, eyeing iguanas basking in the sun, birds cawing and flying over head, I read and counted down each decorated sign naming each home in the neighborhood. The anticipation to arrive at Casa Perla was mounting...this beautiful and warm casa did not disappoint. The lovely and thoughtful house staff had prepared a pre-arranged dinner-delicious and authentic. The living room was thoughtfully appointed with televison (which we chose not to turn on), board games, books, wifi, and a comprehensive instructional binder. The convenience of 2 kitchens was fantastic and a plus for convenience. The rooms were comfy and aesthetically appointed with windows and doors to bring the outside in. I managed deep and lovely sleep each night in my bed. Tulum town and beach is a manageable drive and does not disappoint. I would say the beach was heaven on earth. Prices in town were good and great ethnic artwork and gifts were plentiful. A stroll down Tankah Bay is perfect, ending up at Hotel Jashita for a lovely lunch. The warmth of the architecture and decor and the attention to detail at Casa Perla is very appreciated. I didn't feel like I was vacation perching but rather, living in my own personal home. Although across from the beach, the pool was an added treat and swimming and splashing while sipping our margaritas was a perfect early evening activity.

Mil gracias for having such a lovely home!

The house is gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous. It is meticulously cleaned every day. The staff are lovely.

It is very well-appointed and comfortable. The kitchens were great for cooking.

There is a wonderful cenote just minutes from the house - beautiful, clear water.

The beach near the house isn't great for swimming but there is a lot of interesting coral and rocks.

It is about a 25-minute drive to Tulum. If you are driving at night very carefully watch your speed. There are a lot of checkpoints and they will pull you over for going even 1 km over the speed limit.

Our favorite meal in Tulum proper was at Zebra. They house-make everything including some fabulous chili sauces and salsas.

Near the house check out Oscar and Lalo, just 5 min drive away. Lovely setting, playground for kids and good food.

The Leatherback is an endangered species and these turtles have been nesting in this same spot for hundreds of years.
