This condo is ideally located close to the beautiful beaches of Tulum and is only a short bike ride or walk into town. We often ride our bikes to the beach, park by Mezzanine and then walk the beach to the beach club. We find the Tulum beaches the nicest of any of the beaches we have visited including Costa Rica and Jamaica.
The condo itself has become our home away from home in the winter. For the past three years we have called this beautiful condo home for the months of January and February. We love the bright, fresh and clean look of the condo as well as the wooden furniture made from local craftsmen. The condo is well maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything we need to make a home cooked meal. With the large supermarket, Chadraui, just 5 minutes away, it's not hard to cook a gourmet meal when we prefer to eat in. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, we have enjoyed having family members and friends come for short visits.
We enjoy the upstairs terrace with the hammocks and loungers. It is always nice to watch the sunset while tending to supper cooking on the grill. The hottub came in handy when our grandchildren came to stay. We put some cool water in and the adults and children alike enjoyed cooling off in it. The terrace is a lovely, quiet, little oasis for reading, relaxing and having that pre-dinner cocktail or nap.
The owners, Rosy and Phillipe, have gone out of their way to make our stays with them comfortable and enjoyable. We like that they are near by and they are always willing to assist in any way they can. We truly feel safe and at home when we are at "Las Estrellas".
We also like the friendly and quiet atmosphere of the pool area. We especially used the pool this past year for daily laps as well as visiting with friends while enjoying the afternoon sun. The garden is well tended and it's interesting to watch the many birds that come to perch in the trees and check out the blossoms. We enjoy watching the orioles, hummingbirds, chachalacas and many other birds that frequent the tree tops close to our balcony each day. And it's always nice to hear their songs as we wake up each morning!
I guess the fact that we keep going back year after year speaks for itself. I can't imagine going anywhere else!
If you are staying in Tulum this is the perfect place and area. The condo is beautiful and private which was perfect for the 6 of us. Rosy suggested places that really made our trip amazing and visiting mexico for the first time she made it comfortable. It was like having a friend and tour guide all in one! The market is right down the road along with a 7 11 with an atm.
The condo was exactly as listed. In a modern Caribbean style complex with a nice pool in the center of the courtyard. Easy access to the beaches, town, or day hikes to Akumal, many Cenotes, Coba, more. Clean, appropriately outfitted, ready to enjoy. Rozy is very accommodating and a great Tour Guide with the local knowledge of what/where to go. Tulum is a great little town with a mix of Tourist destinations and what I think of as traditional Mexico. The Beaches can be reached by bike or car. Many offer chairs/towels/parking for a fee or a commitment to order from the restaurant. Prices vary from minimal to $25USD/per person. The overall environment is friendly, safe, relaxed which is what we were hoping for and Enjoyed. We will add this location to our future destination list.
Really Beautiful place, very nice owners, such a placid place nearby the beach and a couple of miles near by the Mexico most beautiful Maya Pyramids, in a Town very Bicycle Friendly, an even has WIFI, Cable, Air Conditionig
Our family had a wonderful stay at this condo. It is very spacious and clean. The location is perfect - just a 5-10 min drive to the supermarket, beach, town, and the Tulum ruins. We really enjoyed hanging out in the pool area and the private terrace at the end of the day. The landlord was extremely helpful and kind. She was very responsive to questions even before we arrived there. I highly recommend this condo!
