About the property

Artistic and Bright Home on the Sea. Sleeps 2-4.

Casa Bonita is perfect for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

Our 1000square ft home is well designed and bright with a large palapa roof. Nestled into palm trees on the soft white sand beach, Bonita is just steps from the Caribbean sea. A shade palapa and loungers are on the quiet and pristine beach in front so you can relax and enjoy some peaceful time with a book.

The open concept living space fully opens up to create a seamless connection with the outdoors. There is a sitting area with cushions on the veranda and an outdoor shower amidst the greenery. Inside, artistic elements and details give the house a unique Tulum beach feel.

There is a semi-private sleeping area on the main floor with two single beds and a place to put your things. This is a great area for your family members or friends to stay.

The entire top floor is a master suite with a beautiful palapa roof, king size bed and a balcony facing the sea. The bedroom captures the sea breezes and stays comfortable even in the heat. There is an ensuite bathroom and shower. The room is bright and spacious.

Restaurants, yoga classes, spas, and boutiques are within a few minutes walk and sea kayaks and boogie boards are available for you to use. Tulum is safe so you can enjoy walking the beach anytime, including under the light of the moon.

Daily housekeeping and groundskeeping are provided (except Sunday). Chef, yoga, and childcare services available at the house.

Experience the beauty of living on the beach.

Our minimum booking is 4 nights but if the calendar is open for a smaller window we are happy to have you stay.

The house is designed for privacy but shares a large property with Casa De Las Palmas VRBO 220555 and Casa Mandala VRBO 224939 and Casa Gaia if you are looking to book multiple homes.

Casa Bonita is a treat, a joy and a delight to spend time in. We look forward to sharing this piece of paradise.

About Snow Colbeck

My name is Snow and I manage the reservations for Casa Bonita. I have been coming to this property for over 12 years. As a family we have walked this beach and played in the waves for many years. My own children (now 8 & 11) have enjoyed the warm water and soft sand since they were babies. I love the stunning beach and the simplicity of Tulum. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. When I am not on the beach I live in BC, Canada with my family enjoying the outdoors.

Snow Colbeck purchased this house in 2002

Why Snow Colbeck chose Quintana Roo

I love the location of this property. It is safe, friendly, close to restaurants, and on a mellow part of the beach. The sand of Tulum is soft and white and the sea is warm and great for boogie boarding, body surfing, kayaking, and kiteboarding when its windy. On calm days it is an amazing natural pool for swimming and snorkelling.

What makes this house unique

Casa Bonita is a well-designed intimate home great for couples or a small family. Bright, sunny and private, the house is alive with warmth, light and colour. Located right on the beach with foliage for privacy Casita Bonita has the perfect location. When the glass doors are opened, you are connected to the beach in a magical way. Up the stairs in the stunning, private, romantic bedroom the rest of the world drops away. Your own house in paradise.

The Best Place to Stay in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

We rented all of Guy's villas for our wedding in Tulum and it was the best decision ever! It allowed all of our guests to be together for the entire weekend and gave us access to the best stretch of beach and the best restaurants in Tulum. The villas are perfectly located and Guy and Snow could not be more responsive and more helpful in answering questions and getting you acclimated. The beach in front of the villas has an amazing set up with beds and lounge chairs and the views from the bedroom of Casa Bonita are incredible. The house itself is beyond beautiful and has everything you could ever want during your stay. Honestly we could not recommend Guy's properties any more highly as the best place to stay in all of Tulum. Thank you for everything!

Our stay there was amazing! I wish I could have stayed forever! WE spent a little under a week, It was my husband and I and our small children! They had such a blast! I loved that the garden is the beach! They could play on the sand all the time!

The house is impecable, well maintained and had everything we needed! Everyone was very helpful!

Congratulations on such an amazing home! I hope to be back soon!

My husband and I stayed at Casita Bonita for 6 nights with our two young children (7 and 3). We had started our vacation with two nights in a hotel down the beach, but as soon as we walked into Casita Bonita the holiday became really wonderful. The house is intimate but with plenty space for us all. The kids slept in the twin beds downstairs and except for the first night, they slept really well.

The house is soothing, artistic and the location is incredible. We hired a car for the duration of the trip and can't imagine not having that flexibility to be able to visit the cenotes, lagoons, ruins etc.

The staff are very friendly. We hired Chef Irma one day (a must!) and then spent the next day eating all the leftovers. Next time, we will hire her the day after we arrive so we have all the breakfast/lunch/ dinner food taken care of.

Things that would make the house perfect: shampoo and body wash in both of the showers and all four burners on the cooktop working properly.

We loved every minute of it. Thank you Guy for your hospitality! It is a magical place. See you next time.

Piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

We loved Casa Bonita, and the laid back, beach-front air that went with it. Guy is a lovely host, attentive to desires but encouraging of a most relaxing time, recommending staying near the house and giving great recommendations for the few excursions we ventured on because Casa Bonita was perfect for everyone. Chef Irma's meal was fantastic, and we recreated versions of it throughout our stay. Bernardo and the housecleaning staff were wonderful as well.

My only reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars is that the kitchen was poorly stocked with equipment for the price. I thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals in the ocean breeze but expected better knives, more dishes, four eyes on the stove to work and for the equipment to be of slightly higher quality. When we arrived, one outlet didn't work but it was fixed the next day.

Also, the last night and next day, the wifi didn't work, but this was ok by us. Don't go here if you cannot fully unplug. Do go here to melt into relaxation, an owl's soft hoot and a gentle gulf breeze.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Casita Bonita. Please let us know if there is anything you need during your stay - we have lots of extra items stored onsite and are happy to provide you with whatever you need to fully enjoy the space. The wifi is reliable on the beach. If it is not working, let us know and we will be sure it is up and going asap. Sometimes we just need to reset the router. Thank you for staying with us, we hope you visit us again soon!

Great place to stay on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bonita was ideal for our family of four. The adults stayed upstairs in the spacious bedroom and the kids downstairs. The house and grounds are well maintained and Guy, the owner, was available and very helpful. There were many restaurants in walking distance. We had a car and there was room to park and a few grocery stores in town. Next time we are in Tulum we will try to stay at the Casa Bonita.
