The house is BETTER than the pictures!
Ok, I just returned home from staying at Casa Mandala on the beach. The house is actually nicer than the photos. All rooms are huge and the AC works great in each room. The location right on the beach is just magical. BRING YOUR REEF SHOES! You need reef shoes to walk into the water.
We had the chef come in twice to make us dinner which worked out well and very easy to coordinate. We paid 10 USD per person plus the cost of food - much cheaper than going out.
Location is right on the beach, down a private road that has a security guard. We had rental cars, but you can also just grab a taxi from the Pavo Real resort which is a couple doors down. It is about a 15 car ride into Tulum main town, and about 20 minutes into Tulum Beach Road. We liked that we had a rental car because were able go to and from the city, etc.
Wifi works, but slow, but this is rural Mexico, so it's appropriate. We brought our own protable Bluetooth speaker, which I recommend doing.
I highly recommend this house. Very well priced. Very modern and clean.
If you are looking to be close to Tulum Beach Road, this may be kind of far for that (20-30 minutes each way is too far for my taste.) But if you are looking for a quiet house, in a remote paradise location, with modern amenities, perfect for families or group of older friends (we were a group of 9 30-40 somethings celebrating my 40th birthday) then this is perfect for you.
Beautiful House and Caretakers - Some Small Issues
We had a group of adults and 2 kids stay here for 6 nights and had a wonderful time.
First of all, Ana, the owner is very responsive to emails and all our questions, Thanks Ana!
Also the caretakers, Mari and Jose are very nice, attentive and always helping us fix things.
The house feels secure in a great gated location, and has a beautiful Zen mandala decorations. The beach as plenty of beach chairs and 2 nice kayaks. We loved the 2 large tables for big group meals. The pool was great and there is a nice cenote walking distance down the road.
The main issues were that we didn't have internet upon arrival - When I pressed they did have it fixed. The water and hot water intermittently went on and off. Granted every time we brought these issues to attention, Ana, Mari and Jose were already working to fix them. Its possible the sensitive bio-location just has issues with plumbing, wifi, rain etc. When it did rain the water came in through windows and doors. Not huge deals that ruined our vacation but made it slightly challenging for the cost.
The other issue was with the private chef. It was a confusing ordeal. We bought and paid for the groceries, but they cooked and cleaned. We asked for enchiladas and almost got chilaquiles until we talked more with Chef. We asked for dinner at 7:30 but he prepared it at 5:30, so by the time we wanted to eat, it was cold. We ended up re - heating it and making more rice, guacamole, and sauce as there wasn't really enough provided for 9 adults and 2 kids. For $10 per person, not including groceries, we felt the quality could have been better, it cooked on time and would have liked the chef to shop for the items as well.
All in all, the house and location is beautiful, has most of the amenities - we would have liked a dishwasher and washing machine - but has some functional issues.
Girls Get Away In Tulum
We just got back today from our amazing trip! The house was beautiful and even better than pictures, all the beds were comfortable, all the AC worked in every bedroom. The keys to the safe did not work but everything else exceeded expectations. Maria and her husband live in the house outside of this listing and she helped us get transportation to go out at night. They transportation she called was extremely reliable. Maria also cleaned the house every day for us. Also leading up to the trip I asked Ana soooo many questions and via the VRBO messaging system and she responded so quickly- which was very helpful. I wish we could go back next weekend!
The home and area are wonderful!
When we walked into the house we were all wondering are the photos as great as the home?
We all said wow it is even better! The beach was clean and walkable to fun beach restaurants such as Casa Cenote, love that place! We did have a chef come in for two meals it was relaxing but the language barrier proved to be trying. I would also suggest renting a car as taxi services are very expensive. Other than items I would say I would have no problem coming back soon.
Awesome vacation home!
Our family vacation at Casa Mandala was fabulous. The house is beautiful, the beach is gorgeous, our chef was fabulous- everything was perfect. We would love to go back and have recommended it to friends. It fit our family of 11 (with 2 under 7) easily. 5 big bedrooms all with marble bathrooms, kayaks, hammocks, pool- this house has it all. Only drawback- very rocky in shallow beach water. Should have brought beach shoes. Next time we will.
Better than described
The house staff was amazing with the house being spotless every day despite our group of 7 men. Location was A+, and property is beyond amazing. Santiago cooked for us every day - spectacular. Ana provided guidance at every turn. I strongly advise renting this property and will happily return!
