Bird watching the Sian Ka'an, Cenote diving and snorkeling, sightseeing the Tulum ruins. Just a short distance from the house is a Mayan lighthouse. This lighthouse was used for night fishing hundreds of years ago to exactly pinpoint the location of a cenote in the lagoon where bountiful fish awaited. The Mayans would light a small fire in the lighthouse and when lined up directly in the line of sight of the fire, they would be directly over the cenote. It's paradise! Need we say more?

Casa de los Pelicanos - Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location just inside the Sian Ka’an reserve south of Tulum and the Tulum strip. Arrangement and booking was easy and plenty of info from the owner. Easy drive from Cancun passing through Tulum where you can stock up at the local Chedurai supermarket, pass through the Tulum strip with some great restaurants and into the reserve. Three generations and 9 of us spent the Christmas vacation and it could not have been better. Weather was fantastic, beaches unbelievable and the house was perfect with beautiful furnishings and plenty of room inside and out. The on-site staff looked after many of our culinary needs and cooked some wonderful meals, kept the house tidy and provided endless supply of beach towels.

Enjoyed fishing and snorkeling trips as well as snorkeling and diving in the cenotes.

Perfect place to watch sunrise over the sea and sunset over the lagoon and the stars at night!

What an incredible experience we had staying at Casa de los Pelicanos! We totally loved our stay in this spacious beautiful home. The beach was especially fantastic. The grounds keeper kept it so nice for us and we enjoyed the nice shade structure provided by the owners. Truly a tropical experience unparalleled by no other. We had no trouble booking and the website pictures were so accurate. Thank you so much!

Incredible, Paradise like stay in Tulum. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was a family trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The house was spacious and met our needs perfectly. Loved the private beach and grounds! Bedrooms very nice. The house staff kept up with us and our needs with 5 children. They prepared a delicious breakfast and a perfect dinner that we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. We felt taken care of everyday. Made sure we got to our fun excursions. His recommendations for activities were spot on! Always smiling!

This area of Tulum is amazing-so much to enjoy!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from the most enjoyable vacation we've ever had! The house had everything we could ask for and more! The beach was incredible soft sand and the water was crystal clear and warm. We have a ten and twelve year old and our friends have two children close in age and they kayaked and SUP'd (stand up paddle boarded) for hours every day! Chari's cooking was absolutely delicious and we ended up having six of her dinners and went out for only one. Once we had her cooking, we didn't want to go anywhere else! We ended up having Chari cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day and the price was very reasonable, only about $1100 for eight of us for a week. I would highly recommend this villa to my friends and we will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you so much to the owners for hosting and helping us have such a memorable experience!

Check for seaweed first...If no seaweed at all, I would give a 5 stars review...

  • 3 of 5

To be honest, this is one of the more difficult reviews to write.

The house is beautiful, isolated, but really well equipped.

Housekeepers are the most valuable point, by far...(unfortunately, Chucho's car was stolen in the area a few days before we arrived, so we needed to drive for groceries most of the time)

The owner is always reachable and friendly, and the property manager too.

Our experience...

The seaweed was present from day one until the end of the stay (9 days).

And let me tell you this, its not just "some seaweed"... its a lot ! If you are the unlucky guy that have to experience this, forget about the wonderful pictures you see in the website and try to find some other beach to stay for vacations.

Again, this has nothing to do with the house, or the owners aware...really aware...if you book really in advance, you will take a risk.

This house is paradise but only if the ocean stays as you see in the pictures, because if the Sargassum is present...any other place will be better for you. Think that this guy, Chucho, spent more than 3 hours a day trying to clean the beach...which is impossible...

I have some photos I'd like to share with anyone interested.

I want to also say that the owner (he was not obligated to do it) gave us a kind of compensation (equivalent to less than one night of the 9 nights we stayed) but we could not agree as this is kind of legal interpretation vs common sense. Anyway, no hard feelings.

Conclusion: The house is awesome and if Mother Nature is with you, you will have a blast, you will experience real paradise (try to avoid the hottest season) and have fun at the beach...If you see seaweed is present, avoid the area, save some money and postpone the trip. May be its just a bad season and the cristal clear waters are now back again and will stay most of the time ..who knows the global warming effect, right?

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, all our guests agree that Chucho and Chari are amazing hosts. They did everything possible to make your stay an enjoyable experience. Also, it was nice to hear that you felt that the house was awesome and well equipped! Unfortunately you experienced some bad seaweed during your stay. As a matter of course, our beaches are pristine white sand. Scientists agree that the problem with seaweed has been an anomaly and not the norm for the eastern seaboard and all of the Caribbean. We have never had a problem with seaweed until two and a half years ago for a period of about three months and then this past August and September. The seaweed has already cleared up significantly and has not been a problem for the last few weeks. Seaweed has not been a problem exclusive to us by any means so one cannot just go somewhere else in the Caribbean to avoid it. The entire Caribbean and eastern seaboard of the U.S. has experienced some bad times with seaweed but we do everything we can to keep our beach clean and clear daily. Rest assured that we will continue to do everything within our control to make our guests' vacations a wonderful experience. Alan and Valorie Owners of Casa de los Pelicanos Tulum, Mexico

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this location for our honeymoon. Driving in to the property you go through a cute little part of town with inviting restaurants and boutiques and beautiful ocean views. When we arrived the friendly staff had a delicious dinner prepared and the house itself is breathtaking! The view from each window was serene and the interior is well kept and homey. You can watch the sun rise over the ocean and set over the lagoon from the roof top! We spent some lazy days at the private beach and other days filled with adventure from fishing, kayaking, zip lining, and scuba diving. The staff made up fresh ceviche with the fish we caught! We had such a wonderful experience staying at this property and will definitely be returning! Thank you Casa De Los Pelicanos!

About Michelle M. Nunez

A dream come true. A villa in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The picture shows the owner kayaking in the lagoon of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Just a short distance from the house is a Mayan lighthouse that is shown in the picture. This lighthouse was used for night fishing hundreds of years ago to exactly pinpoint the location of a cenote in the lagoon where bountiful fish awaited. The Mayans would light a small fire in the lighthouse and when lined up directly in the line of sight of the fire, they would be directly over the cenote.

Michelle M. Nunez purchased this villa in 2009

Why Michelle M. Nunez chose Tulum Municipality

It's paradise. Need we say more?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fue una sorpresa el encontrarnos en un lugar tan magico, el estar en una de las mejores playas del mundo, completamente solos y aislados fue una experiencia increible. El tener una playa paradisiaca para nosotros solos fue una experiencia que no olvidaremos y hizo de la vacación algo unico, desde las nadadas en el mar, las caminadas en la noche con la luna llena hasta las tortugas que ponen sus huevos. Adicional, el servicio y la forma de cocinar que de Chari y Chucho, complementan la experiencia. Al despedirnos de la casa, estabamos ya planeando el regresar al año siguiente.
