Please, read our REVIEWS and Let us call you. We'd love to tell you more!

We offer a spacious, and unique home on the beach with three separate en suite guest bedrooms. Two bedrooms have a king size bed, the third one has two twin beds with canopy. They all are tucked away for privacy. Each has its own bathroom and deck or patio and enjoys a full view of the Caribbean. Situated on over 80 feet (25 meters) of quiet beachfront with hammocks swinging from the palapa. It is the ideal location to relax, snorkel, or explore the Riviera Maya.

Located an hour and a half south of Cancun, minutes from Tulum, Tankah Bay is a small paradise. Our private access beach road has 24-hour security. Quiet and very safe while amenities are easily accessible on foot or in a ten-minute car ride.

We designed a house where everyone can enjoy the spacious...

Caretakers Luis and Nery do an excellent job maintaining the property. Located... more

This is our second visit to Tankah Bay and it's pretty hard to beat our first stay. This was definitely comparable. The house was beautiful, clean, spacious and perfect for what we wanted.

The house is designed so that the bedroom areas are private and they each include a bathroom and balcony over looking the beach. The public areas and kitchen were roomy, comfortable, wide open and nicely decorated. The beach... more
