“wonderful experience from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

This was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The house itself is lovely and the key here is that the owners regard Casa Perla as their personal home, not as a rental property. From the local artwork and furniture to the wall stenciling, the attention to detail is amazing and leave you with a real Mayan experience. Functionally, the house is very well maintained and kept. The kitchen was well equipped while the beds were unbelievably comfortable. Having the house cleaned and our beds made daily was a real luxury.

The house is located in a safe (24 hour security), secluded area that is very convenient to a range of attractions in the area. Our boys loved the local cenotes as well as the less traditional Xel-Ha resort parks. It is a 10 minute drive to Tulum town as well as Tulum beach with its range of hip restaurants. On the evening we stayed in, Italy - the housekeeper cooked for us and made one of the best mole sauce we've tasted. Unfortunately, we were not privy to her secret recipe - thus another reason to come back. Some nights we just hung out on the rooftop and admired the expansive constellations while the kids played for hours in the pool. The mornings were a bird watchers paradise on the villa rooftop. On our arrival night, we stepped out on to the beach and saw some turtles laying their eggs…

This was an all round enjoyable experience which exceeded our expectations and we will be back. The house is an easy 80 minutes direct drive from the Cancun airport. The owner was easy to work with who handled our questions and requests promptly.

“Amazing House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our group of long-term friends had an wonderful stay at Casa Perla. We couldn't have asked for more amenities or comfort. Every last detail was considered from the intriguing art on the walls in the bedrooms down to the selection of beverage glasses in each of the two kitchens. We especially loved the tiling and stenciled walls everywhere, and the upstairs porch balcony overlooking the Caribbean sea. The pool offered refreshment during the heat of the day. The ability to prepare our own meals and have plenty of space to do so was an added benefit. We loved all the patios and lawn chairs to enjoy the natural surroundings.

Italy, the housekeeper was very gracious and prepared breakfast for us on more than one occasion. Victor, the owner was extremely helpful and responsive to all our questions and inquiries.

Although we didn't swim in the sea across the road, we ventured to the local casa cenote and the cenote at labnaha, which were both terrific and very different from one another. We also visited the beaches at zona hotelera a few times, which are gorgeous.

I think we would all agree that we could easily have extended our stay and continued to enjoy Casa Perla's appeal. And indeed we hope to return one day so we can do so.
