Awarded Casa Perla del Mar Top Vacation Rental in Tulum again in 2013, making it three years in a row; 2011, 2012 and 2013. 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 double bed and 2 singles - perfect for children.

Kitchen detail: 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!

Outdoor detail: 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.

                                                                  Off the beaten path villa with plenty of room for one or two families. There's plenty of places in the house to have your own privacy even when traveling with seven or eight other guests. There's three restaurants down the road to make it very convenient to grab a bite to eat while not feeling like driving to town. The staff is great and they keep the house spotless. Italy is an amazing cook and really enjoyed the meals she prepared for us.

                                                                  This is a magical place!

                                                                  Outstanding House in fabulous Tulum !

                                                                  asedf d.

                                                                  What a great place! We had four couples staying at the house- each bedroom and its own bathroom, and everything was spotlessly clean ! Plenty of room. The best part was the roof top deck- nothing like an after dinner cigar,with a little tequila, and the views are incredible! Would I go back? You bet ! I would make it a yearly visit if I could.

                                                                  Tulum Luxury Stay at Casa Perla del Mar


                                                                  I stayed at Casa Perla del Mar with my daughter for a week enjoying greatly the area and the immaculately kept luxury accommodation at Casa Perla del Mar. Wonderfully quiet with ocean views from the upper level and a welcome trade wind that flows through the house when glass doors are left open. Italy, the house cleaner and superb cook brings into the home a sweet and gentle feeling daily ( except Sundays). I also liked very much the layout of the house as it is setup with a kitchen on each level were one to travel with another family. The interior of the house reveals details as you would expect from a talented designer.

                                                                  Down the road is in my opinion the best cenote we visited ( we also went ot dos ojos and gran cenote).Also two convenient restaurants are just a 3min drive down the rather private road serving excellent meals after a long day of fun. Xel Ha is a must.

                                                                  I recommend without reservation a visit to Tulum and a stay at this abode. Top Marks!!!

                                                                  Christmas week at Casa Perla Del Mar

                                                                  I spent Christmas week with my wife, three daughters, and a family friend at Casa Perla Del Mar. it was a bit unnerving committing to a rental property and the travel related to getting there just from visiting a website. This is the first time I have ever experienced a property being better than advertised! My family is not easy to please and they were just delighted with the cleanliness, spaciousness, and charm of this gem near Tulum. Beautiful views from anywhere in the house. Relaxing well maintained gardens and pool by an attentive staff, all on a secured roadway with very few cars driving by. We loved the local restaurants just up the road with great food and friendly staff.

                                                                  For activities we snorkled at the Gran Cenote, spent a day at Xel-Ha theme park, and visited the beautiful beaches of Tulum. There are lots of shops to visit and the grocery stores were very American friendly.

                                                                  The owner was very responsive and great to work with. He provided great advice on how to prepare for the trip and made it a no nonsense experience. I have already recommended this property to my family and friends. It was a family vacation that we will never forget.

The villa was luxurious and I was able to do my water aerobics in the pool warmed by the sun. The villa had amenities that I never thought would be available in Mexico. It was also a short distance for many day trips. The service provided by Italy and Elias was warm and professional. I was able to see several thunder and lightening storms from the second floor balcony facing the jungle - a real treat for someone from drought-stricken California. It was a vacation that I will never forget.

                                                                  Beautiful, authentic, comfortable, safe, relaxing!

                                                                  I stayed at Casa Perla del Mar for a week this May with my significant other and our two friends. The moment we arrived that Sunday evening we were like kids on Christmas - ecstatic to open each door to see what it looked like in person. The images on the site are very representative of the home, but seeing it in person is far superior. We instantly cracked open a cold one, took a dip in the pool, and vacation time was in full effect.

                                                                  Watching the sunrise and being walking distance to the ocean was one of my favorite aspects of the home. We went for a walk every morning. Down the street is Blue Sky Restaurant, which has delicious pizzas (we too thought it was odd to have pizza in Mexico but totally worth it). Also on the same street was a local dive shop where we took a fishing charter. And yes we did catch a fish -- a 70 lb. marlin! The home is a short drive to all the other activities we wanted to do and it was very easy to get around.

                                                                  Italy, the caretaker woman, was incredible and it was fantastic to have one meal a day prepped for us (we supplied the groceries, selected from the menu and tipped at the end of the week). While my Spanish was rusty it was pretty easy to communicate.

                                                                  We felt extremely safe at the home as well as everywhere we went in Tulum.

I wish there was a way around the required car insurance policy (I’d research more because maybe I missed something) but you don’t want to rely on taxis if you stay here. Brush up on your Spanish and/or download Google Translate or other similar smart phone apps to assist with communication while at the house and throughout Tulum.

The ruins of Coba are only a fifty minute drive from Tankah and the world famous ecological park of Xel-Ha is only fifteen minutes away. There are a multitude of cenotes in the area, which are large aquifers, both subterranean and surface level where you can take a refreshing swim in the heat of the day. Playa del Carmen, with all its shopping and nightlife is forty minutes away and Akumal, another beautiful beach town famous for turtle sightings only twenty minutes away. Tankah Bay is surrounded by a coral reef that can be reached either by boat or by kayak; a wonderful snorkeling experience. Casa Perla is located 50 meters from the water's edge and in May through November, you can experience one of nature's miracles. Over 150 Leatherback turtles come to nest and hatch on the beach in front of the house. The leatherback is an endangered species and these turtles have been nesting at this same spot for hundreds of years.
