Casa de las Olas is so close to my heart I hesitate to tell anyone about this amazing secret.
As Tulum is increasingly 'discovered', Olas maintains that classic-Tulum feel of remote perfection, almost too good to be true. This beautiful beach house is tucked at the end of the beach road and out of the fray (which is still fun to visit!), and feels more like staying with a [very lucky] friend than at a hotel or B&B. Jimmy and Sam are both amazing and a part of the Tulum fabric, full of awesome insider tips (like cochinita pibil tucked into a side street in town) and hospitality. Lulu will serve you amazing breakfast at the communal picnic table, down to which you can stumble in the morning before a post-breakfast dip in the Caribbean. And, Antonio will pop down shortly after to grab you a coconut from a nearby tree and hack it open for a refreshing drink.
The house itself is gorgeous, and the rooms have beautiful wood floors, decor, and views of the sea. The power you get is solar generated, which means being both eco-conscious and free of generator noise which is increasingly common at other spots nearby.
I've now stayed at Olas twice and will never stay anywhere else in Tulum.
