“Peace and Perfection in Tulum”
Reviewed 21 February 2010

Shhh...do not really want to tell anyone about this near perfect spot and this fabulous beach house.We stayed for 10 days and was not long enough.This house is just perfect for 3 couples and for families. Lots of space and lots of privacy. The 2 bedrooms upstairs are beautiful! Each has french doors that open to a small balcony.We never closed the doors and had the wonderful night breezes,moonlight,sounds of the ocean waves and the morning sunrise. Top of the line bathrooms and big fuzzy bath and beach towels appeared daily.
Everytime you come downstairs or enter the house from the front..it takes your breath away...The whole back of the house opens up with sliding doors to expose the most incredible beach view. You look through the many palm trees shading the property...dotted with colorful hammocks..and then you see the white sand and the blue blue color of the sea. I must have taken a million pictures as it seem to be more beautiful each time and I never wanted to let it go! Overlooking this view is a cozy eating patio filled with colorful Mexican pillows. We enjoyed many early morning coffee' s here as well as breakfast and wonderful beachfront lunches. Great little spot. Another great spot is the rooftop deck. It also has some cozying seating and becomes the "must be spot" for the sunset cocktail hour. Great jungle views fom here.
Cannot say enough about this house. It has this magical feeling of total peace It is wonderfully situated right on the beach..but still surrounded by some jungle vegetation(lovingly cared for by the owner Bonnie) that sweeps down to this incredible beach.
Beach chairs,boogie boards and kayaks are all provided. If they owners are on property,they will even give lessons or ride with you.Lot of hammocks perfectly located for that afternoon nap.
Joni the houseman is there daily...and does a wonderful job.He even did our dishes! Hear he will cook as well...but we did not try that.
Palmas is also the perfect location. Across the street is Casa Banana. Wonderful place for breakfast. They have great ice cream too. You have Le Zebra next door .Another great place for lunch or dinner and of course they have the famous SALSA night on Sundays.
It is wonderful to be able to stroll the beach either way from Casa De las Palmas for a great meal...fun drinks or just a nice walk. We did all!
Bonnie and Bobby are the very colorful owners of this incredible beachhouse. They have really thought of everything and go out of their way to make your vacation perfect.
Ww loved everything about this wonderful house and enjoyed every minute of our vacation.
Thank you Bobby and Bonnie! We will be back!!!

This is a great place to stay. It has a fantastic beach and the waves were great for Boogie Boarding (body surfing with a short surfboard). There is very little undertow/riptide so it felt safe with our children (5 and 7). We left one kids lifejacket there and there are also two adult ones there as well. They also have two sit upon kayaks for your use. Joni (Johnny) does cook a fantastic meal which we had enough leftovers for a great lunch the next day. We had him cook two days and we also ate in town (Mariachi, excellent service, good food, great price) as well as along the beach strip. The breakfast at La Zebra next door was pretty good as well as they hold Salsa lessons on Sunday night. We also had dinner up the beach at Tito Tulum. It was fairly expensive, o.k. food and 1 1/2 hour wait to recieve the food. The local supermarket which is just through the first set of lights as you enter Tulum (coming from the house) has everything you need at good prices.

We went to both the Tulum ruins and the Coba ruins. The iguanas are neat at Tulum ruins however the Coba ruins are still being discovered so we found it more exciting. You can also still climb the highest temple at Coba (the highest in the Northern Yucatan). The restaurant right at the ruins (Coba) was very good service, good food and the bonus was 10% off when we paid the parking admission. While we didn't use the zipline several people did and it looked like fun. I would see the front ruins at Coba and then rent a bike (@50 pesos) to ride to the temple that you can climb as it is quite a hike back (although if you are not in any rush it is an easy, flat @30 minute walk).

If you turn left out of the driveway towards La Zebra, there is a free cenote at the gates to the Biosphere. This a very short bike ride and then at short walk into the cenote. The house itself has a great third floor balcony for viewing the sunset, the second floor has two rooms. Each room has their own ensuite bathroom. One note is that the balconeys are joined so be aware of the people in the next room as each room has french doors that open to the balcony, ie people can inadvertedly walk in front of your room. The main floor room uses the main floor bathroom although it is not an ensuite. If the wind has been off shore for a couple of days (rare) then you can move the table on the porch inside to eat (as the mosquitos seem to think they are invited to dinner). It fits over the coffee table or just move the coffee table. This was the only time the bugs bothered us.

The only down side is that our children (5 and 7) did start to whine about being bored by the end (lack of things to do) however if we had rented our own vehicle then we would have done more side trips and this would not have been an issue. The owners (Bob and Bonnie) were wonderful and very helpful.

We traveled to Casa de las Palmas December 4 - 13, 2009. From the moment we arrived we knew we couldn't of picked a more perfect spot. The three rooms are absolutely beautiful. There are three bathrooms too, so with three couples it was perfect. The kitchen had everything you needed and we ended up cooking most evenings. The location was awesome. Our husbands drive to fly fish in Punta Allen and Boca Paila, while we were able to go to ruins, shopping, and town quite easily. The beach was incredible. They also had boogie boards and kayaks that we used every day. Joni, the housekeeper was also a cook who cooked for us one evening. The meal was AMAZING. Wish we would of done this more often. I can't say enough about this place. I'm ready to book for next year.
