“excellent stay at casa estrallita, tulum (mexico)”
Reviewed 25 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

we just returned from a truly lovely week at the casa estrallita in tulum, on the caribbean coast of mexico.
the owner, dan, is maybe the nicest man you'll ever meet. he does everything to help you out and make your stay as comfortable and fun as possible. his restaurant suggestions were brilliant, as his cenote recommendation (Go to cenote dos ojos. it's amazing! like swimming in air, the water is so clear).
the house is charming and right on the beach. there's a gate to the public part of the beach so you are safe. there are palm trees all around, so it's very private and sheltered. 2 hammocks in the garden, in addition to 2 sun loungers, as well as 2 for the beach. there's also a canopy on the beach for when you've had enough sun. the house is painted in fun mexican colours. the bedroom is huge, and with 2 bathrooms you can have one each which is great. there's even a roof terrace where you can see the sun go down over the sian ka'an nature reserve. you actually live in the reserve, so there aren't any hotels around, and the nearest house is quite a walk away.
food shopping is easy with a very nice supermarket 20 mins drive away. also, in the village, there are lots of great restaurants and bars/cafes that have freshly squeezed juices, coffees to beat any starbucks, and cocktails.
i read a negative review of the house. i believe this was from someone who expected The Four Seasons or similar. Tulum is an eco village where you will not find that kind of standard anywhere, not even at the boutique hotels. if you want that kind of experience, stay in cancun. but if you want to log off from your daily life and get back to nature, this is for you. for us it was truly a dream holiday.

Liked best: the location, right on the beach! the hammocks, the 2 bathrooms, the size of the house.
Liked least: some stains here and there, flies in some lamps, quality of bedding. adding a safe would be a good idea so you don't have to worry about your valuables.

“Secluded beach, house a bit noisy”
Reviewed 29 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

people found this review helpful

Gorgeous beach and property. The house is a good choice for being away from it all. The house is close to the preserve road and is noisy all day and all night. They say the road will be paved, that will help.
House is colorful and the views from the rooftop are spectacular.
If you are looking to get away from it all and spend some time with nature, rent this house. I feel for the cost, the house is in need of a few upgrades. The hot water heater is in need of replacement. If one person is using the shower, there is no water anywhere else in the house.
The windows are all uncovered, and the bed is very uncomfortable. The futon in the main room is not comfortable as a sitting area or as a bed.

Road was fixed by government second week February, 2012 - biggest noise we get now : the Caribbean waves .
All of Tulum hotels & rentals are on this same beach road- due to our priviledged location, we do get less traffic .
Beach house is very private & exclusive- can not see a human being for miles. From the windows you can only see the Caribbean to the East, palm trees & orchids to the north & south.
Just got a more efficient hot water heater.
Bed just got a new mattress.
House is perfect for two persons ( and a child or two ). also plenty of sitting / lounging space by the beach cabanas & hammock areas.
New futton cushion was delivered .
Thank you for spending time at our gorgeous, humble beach.
