We loved Casa Houston and everything about it. A couple friends and I stayed here in October and couldn't be more pleased with the space, the beach, the booking experience and of course Juan and Laura were AMAZING, helpful, courteous and friendly, and are a huge reason we want to come back again. Thank you again for everything!
Casa Houston ist ein Traum! Wir genossen das wunderschöne sehr saubere und gepflegte Haus mit absoluter Privatsphäre, Ruhe und fühlten uns rundum wohl und sicher. Laura und Juan haben uns liebevoll und diskret umsorgt und waren sehr freundlich und immer dienstbereit. Sonnenauf- und Untergang sowie die langen Strandspaziergänge bleiben uns unvergesslich. Die Buchung mit Monika verlief sehr kompetent, unkompliziert und äusserst zuverlässig. Obwohl wir aus der Schweiz eine weite Reise nach Mexico haben, kommen wir wieder, Casa Houston ist ein absolut genialer, komfortabler und traumhafter Ferienort. Herzlichen Dank für alles!
This was our 4th time staying at Casa Houston. The house is amazing and the beach pretty much people free and clean. Laura and Juan were great, and their little girl was super helpful. We didn't take advantage of having meals cooked for us, but will next time we go. Hopefully we will be there next October. The reservation system was smooth with no problems. It was nice to have a gate put in as you go to the beach. Also the grounds are well kept and you can see that The caretakers take pride in their home and also Casa Houston.
Casa Houston was the perfect place for us to spend our week in Tulum. It was so much more than we expected. We travelled as a couple with one of our best friends - the house is spacious and could have accommodated many more people (would be fun for 2 couples or a larger family) so we were very comfortable with our own gorgeous separate bedrooms, bathrooms, and balconies. We watched the sun rise over the ocean and set over the lagoon every day, and observed the milky way from the roof deck. Juan and Laura were amazing caretakers - they were sweet, welcoming, and professional. Laura cooked an authentic Yucatan specialty, Cochinita Pibil, that was delightful and fed us for days. Their dogs were a welcome presence when we were missing our puppy back home. The house is situated within the biosphere which makes it feel secluded and private while only being 5-10 minutes from Tulum where you can nap in a hammock, have a cocktail, eat awesome food, or learn to salsa. Our favorite restaurants and bars were: La Zebra, Ziggy's (great live music), La Eufemia (awesome hippy bar with great tacos), and Mateo's. We had a rental car but there are plenty of taxis from Tulum which makes getting around easy - or you can rent a bike or scooter. We loved boogey boarding in the surf in front of the house, and visiting nearby cenotes and archeological sites/ruins. We can't say enough great things about Casa Houston- we will definitely go back.
If you're the kind of vacationer who prefers a choose-your-own-adventure style of travel while still enjoying a comfortable setting, this property may be what you're looking for. There are not too many better properties we could find in the area. I highly recommend it, but for one thing which I'll speak to:
A beautiful house on the best beach in the area. If we saw 5 people on the beach all day we were surprised. Evenings on the balcony or patio were quiet and peaceful.
A ton of little details and care were taken for the property, which really make the place feel like home for your time there.
The on-site staff are there when you need something, but will leave you to yourself when you don't.
Things to note: Because of the far-removed nature of this property, and location in an eco-reserve, conservation of resources is necessary. That mostly means watch how much water you use. No AC, but it is not needed with the sea-breeze blowing through.
You'll need your own car, and I recommend an SUV for comfort. Groceries in town are your best bet for supplies (buy lots of bottled water), we chose to grab what we needed on the way in and again while out on tours. Beyond that, definitely check out the amazing dining options in the Tulum hotel zone or beyond.
Location is a relatively safe area for travel, but common sense and awareness should prevail when on vacation ... especially so far out of the way.
There are critters all around ... not to be alarming, just aware. Giant iguanas or monitors are the most obvious (and of course, mosquitoes and little pests), but we saw a tarantula the size of a large hand and a 7-8 foot snake crossing the road one night. I'm sure larger unseen critters lurk in the jungle at night. I don't consider any of the above as a negative, but you should go in with eyes open. Beautiful hooded orioles sang outside our windows every morning!
The only negative ... and it is hard to call it a negative when we had such an amazing vacation property ... would be the beds. Still a 5 star rating, and my wife and I would definitely like to return. Just note the beds pictured above are doubles, and for 2 adults it is a little cramped for my tastes. My wife and I traveled alone and ended up sleeping in separate rooms after the first night. We're not big people! If we were to return I'd be more interested if the beds were upsized to queen, there should be space in the rooms. ... Small nitpicky thing in an otherwise fabulous getaway!
Although we're back home, I still see us walking miles along the beach, watching the sunset from the front deck, snuggling with a book on the oceanfront back deck, observing the stars from the bedroom balcony or swimming in the waves. The house lies on a spit of land with water on both sides. It's a drive to the grocery, but much quieter than places closer to town. Do shop in actual downtown Tulum for good values. Do snorkel in the cenote along the path by the gate to Si'an Ka'an. Don't drive to Punto Allen; the roads are atrocious and there's nothing there.
Located near the Tulum Town: Tulum Coatline; Tulum & Coba Ruins, enjoy staying in the most beautiful white sandy beach in Mexico.
