We rented a condo here for 13 nights in November (2 bedroom for 10 nights, 1 bedroom for 3 nights) after seeing all the great reviews on Tripadvisor and other travel sites. In addition to the great reviews and the prompt and friendly responses to our inquiries from the owners, Catherine and Hernan, the location of Villas Geminis sold us. And, we were not disappointed when we arrived.
The property is beautiful, very clean, secure and perfectly situated in the town of Tulum. You have easy access via bicycle or foot to the main street of town and all shops and restaurants - yet, still feel enough off of the beaten path. The large Chedraui grocery store is an easy 5 minute bike ride away. We stocked up on groceries there.
The condos have full kitchens. We used ours every day to prepare many meals. The condos are decorated very tastefully and have a modern touch of style about them. The garden-courtyard is a very relaxing zone to be in from the moment you arrive through the gate to the property. Cesar, the caretaker, was extremely nice and helpful with everything we needed.
Every day, we travelled around on the bicycles Villa Geminis rents to its guests. This was a huge amenity to us since we did not have a car. And you don't need one with the bikes available. We loved the ease and simplicity of packing our daypacks and jumping on the bikes for an adventure every day. It was easy to take the beach-road bike path to the beach, ruins, and hotel zone right from the property.
Bottom Line: This is the place if you are looking for a centrally-located accommodation with a tasteful, comfortable and relaxed-vibe in the Tulum area.
