“Great place off the beaten path in Tulum”
Reviewed 12 August 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Nice quiet and private house right on the beach near the central Tulum district, but far enough away to be quiet. Great place for a family who wants a lot of time on the beach and to themselves. I highly recommend setting up the private cook for some dinners during your stay, very reasonable for the quality of the food and a fun addition to the trip. You can still easily go and see the sights of Tulum and the surrounding area, but I would recommend renting a car if you are staying here for sure, the walk to central Tulum is longer than you'd want to do everyday most likely.

“ah heavenly, but perhaps not for every traveler”
Reviewed 27 February 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We just returned last night from a heavenly stay at Casa Estrallita which is just inside the gate of Si'an Ka'an. The location has pro's and con's; just like everywhere on the beach in Tulum Casa Estrallita is eco-sensitive. Meaning that you are out on God's own creation where you rarely see another human. This is good or bad depending on your desire to interact with humans on your vacation. Pros: canopy of stars over your head at night shining down on you and reflected back on the beach. View of the sunset over the lagoon at night seemingly unchanged since Mayan times. No company on the beach, you are free to cavort au nauturel. Boogie boarding! SI! The ocean breezes blow right into your bed at night and all day long. No bugs at all when we where there in February. You have the company of a very dignified iguana, Carlos, at no extra charge.
Some things you might want to consider: total solitude, you are about a 10 minute walk from the further reaches of Tulum, so rent bikes or hire a car. Electricity is only availalble for a few hours at night. Toilets (like all toilets in Tulum) are only flushed occaisionally. Water is sacred, so don't waste any of it. I would not want to take toddlers to the this beach, the ocean is quite rough and you will have to guard them continually against being knocked off their feet.

The owners of the Tulum beach properties got together and decided that they did not want electricity. We wanted to keep this area a eco-destination, as simple and close to nature as possible. Low density, (unlike Cancun and Playa Del Carmen), wind ,solar power, generators. Estrellita has solar power, and if u leave lights on all day, or use alot of power.. it runs out. It is highly unusual to not have lights at night, although most all of Tulum beach does shut down at 10(they turn off noisy generator power,lights out!!!.. time to look at the stars, and catch a few winks).We would definitely recommend renting a car, just because there are alot of things to see and do. All of our water on Tulum beach is brought in by truck(there is no water system yet), so we are really into conservation. We have had so many children and babies stay at Estrellita, that just loved the beach,.Actually it is really user friendly- its shallow a long ways out, and the toddlers can just splash around sitting on the sand, in the shallow. I would always keep an eye on the little ones when swimming. The nature of the water changes, if we have alot of wind the ocean can get wavey, Usually, its quite calm ,but again it depends whether itswindy or not that day.Thats nature .. uncontrollable. Gracias for the great review, See u soon.

“Very private, great spot for our honeymoon!”
Reviewed 11 January 2011 for a stay in January 2011

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Estrellita. It is a rustic house that is perfect for a couple. The property is quite large and has many comfortable places to relax, especially if you need to find some shade. The beach is perfect, expansive, and very private. The location is great, the Tulum beach road is very accessible but not right outside your front door. We loved watching the sunset from the roof over the Sian Kaan Reserve Lagoon. Dan and Vera were very concerned about our comfort and did everything they could to ensure we were having a good stay. This is a great place if you just want to be alone, and don't want a lot of intrusions. Only 500 yds down a dirt road, other than that everything in the area is paved and in good condition. You definitely need a car here. Absolutely wonderful place.
