We are considering renting a house that is in town, Tulum in what I think is a gated community. It was our hope and vision to be on the beach but in my vacation rental searches I can't find a nice place under 5k a week that will accomodate 11 persons--they exist of course, but they are booked. UNLESS...YOU know of something! please do tell. The place in question under consideration rents for 10k for two weeks (Christmas/New Years) but because its in town I feel like the price is pretty crazy high. It's quite nice (Casa Guayaba) but certainly not for the affulent, if you know what I mean, and doesn't include unusual amenities. She is open to negotiation and I wanted to learn if others have a sense of what, currently, the market is doing and what's fair and good on both ends. In an alternate scenario, there are places in Tankah on the water in the same price range. Though not the real beach I want to spend time on, wonderign if I should look harder there because then we'd have a great view even if ended up piling in a rental to head to the beach? How long of a drive is it to a great beach from Tankah, versus in the town of Tulum? Does being in Tankah increase any other opportunities? Would love our compare and contrast scenario. We are a group of 11; five persons 13 to 20 years of age and six persons 40 to 78. thank you!
