About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath, Romantically Charming, 750 Sq. Foot House

Charming round house was just finished in Sept. of 2013. This little gem is located in the La Veleta area of Tulum, just off the 307 in a tropical jungle setting. Very private, this not a condo or town home. You share this property with no one else on three lots surrounded by a a solid wall with security gates with an outer permitter security system for optimum privacy. A stones throw aways from the village, private for an excellent nights sleep yet closed enough to pop into the village of Tulum for the festivities all of Mexico is famous for. Within walking distance to the village, however a car or bike rental would be recommended. Gas grill (BBQ) for grilling in the garden, and steps leading to the roof top with a clothes line for drying your towels and bathing suits in the breezes after a day of sun, fun, and relaxation at one of the top 10 rated beaches in the world. The interior walls of the house are round and circle inward as that of a seashell, with the bedroom being the center most room yet still has a large window looking out on to the grounds out side. The bathroom is attached to the bedroom and also circles inward.

About Michelle Davis

After working and being self employed for 20 years, it came with the price tag of 20 years without a vacation, it was time to build a unique quaint casa in a dreamy location of the Caribbean. Casa Caracoles is the result of that dream, in one of the most beautiful and romantic locations in the world - Tulum, Mexico.

Michelle Davis purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Michelle Davis chose Tulum

The setting for this snail shell structure is close to incredible beaches, yet affords optimum privacy with quick and easy access, to take full advantages of festivities and amenities that one is accustom to in our day to day lives. Located in a safe environment, close grocery stores, medical facilities, shops, restaurants, entertainment and bars. The area of La Veleta, meets all the requirements. Casa Caracoles sits on three lots in a private natural garden setting.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is round with walls that circle inward like that of a small snail shell. No lost energy or wasted space in corners. You sleep in a round room that has a soothing cocoon like feeling. Peaceful, private walled and gated natural setting. Close to town yet away from people. It's the only house on the lot, you do not share this space and the large natural garden with anyone. It's the greatest hide-out in which to ecaspe the hustle and bustle of big city life and all it's demands in our day to day lives and has wi-fi for staying in touch with the outside world.

A peace of paradise. This quaint one-bedroom, custom house, just a 10 minute drive from the beach is a sanctuary to say the least. So, so clean. It was super nice to have everything we needed to cook and entertain. Yes, it can get a little warm there, but it was nice to come inside with 2 air conditioners, ceiling fans and a lot of windows to enjoy the great outdoors from the inside. Mayan ruins were a 20 minute drive and we drove to Akumahl and swam with the turtles. Again, just minutes away. Can't say enough for the beaches ... bath water!! Once again, this was a welcome surprise. So look forward to going back.

Owner's Response: Awe, thank you Julie for the kind review. Glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to take in the Coba Ruins. Please come back any time. There is so much to do in the area, and with the casa being close in, it's an easy walk or bike ride to just about everything. Yet with so much to do it's hard to fit it all in with just one stay. Best always, Michelle
