While Casa Xixim is an independent vacation experience within a private home, our staff will welcome you upon arrival, keep things tidy and make sure all the little touches are just right. Linens and towels changed every 3 days, bathrooms and kitchen cleaned daily. Chef service includes 3 meals per day, Sundays are extra, and groceries are not included. Gourmet Kitchen We provide water-coolers for drinking/cooking, and locally sourced coffee and some welcome snacks. Grocery stores for all your needs are easily located in Tulum and grocery shopping can be coordinated with your chef. Body & Bath Lather up with our locally made eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner and soaps. Due to our delicate wetlands system we provide all your sudsing needs. Casa Xixim gift sets can be purchased as souvenirs. We ask our guests to be mindful of their water use. Our water is harvested from the rain which means it is precious in supply and is non-drinkable (drinking water provided). The Xixim Vibe Casa Xixim was built with the natural surroundings in mind utilizing traditional building practices, modern architecture and permaculutre principles. Instead of glass windows we have screened wood louvers that let the cooling sea breeze come through. We feel it's important to point out that this home is not intended for late night parties and we don't provide things like TVs in the bedrooms. Casa Xixim's offer is: epic ocean views, charming sea life, breezy palm trees, a few books, a deck of cards, a movie library on our big screen, and an unbelievably amazing night sky. This magical place is all about you reconnecting, rather than disconnecting. We feel privileged to be the stewards of this little piece of paradise and require our guests to honor house rules that ensure we are good neighbors and good earthlings. Add-on Amenities Our Concierge House Manager can help you plan activities, in-home masseuse, spa treatments, airport shuttles, car rentals, and more. CASA XIXIM UNIQUE ECO-LUXURY For those that seek to be a thoughtful traveler, conscious of the surrounding impact, this is a vacation where you can enjoy time away and get totally zenned out in eco-luxury, but do it knowing that you haven't trampled over everything in the process. Casa Xixim is a modern architectural masterpiece showcasing indigenous materials and a range of sustainable practices: • Design and implementation from both modern architecture & permaculture design • The abundant sun, cooling breeze & refreshing rain provides our home with it's life force • Solar system supplies all power needs & is the first grid-tied net metered home on the bay • Open-air layout with sliding walls & doors for ultimate views & a cross breeze in every room • Rainwater harvesting with composting wetlands to return used water back to the earth again • Landscape & green roof optimized for stacking functions: shade, pollinators, water filtration, wildlife • Recycling, composting, upcycling & DIY'ing! Another component to our Xixim Ethos is to be a positive participant in our community. We believe in giving back, being grateful and considerate. Whenever possible we choose to hire local labor, purchase from local farmers, furnish with local crafts and use locally made earth-friendly cleaning supplies. We share our knowledge and experience. We donate to the local turtle sanctuary and work with our neighbors to keep the bay healthy and beautiful. CASA XIXIM BEDROOM SUITES 1) Beach Suite: The Beach bedroom is down a short hall off the main living space on the 1st floor. It's adjacent to the pool (but still private) and opens out onto a patio with hammock and then a couple steps down to the sand, and then to the beach. The view is mostly palm trees and a bit of ocean through the trees. The patio wall has sliding wood doors that open up the room.

About the neighborhood
One of the best kept secrets of the Riviera Maya, Bahía de Soliman beckons travelers in search of a magical escape. Our tranquil bay is protected by a coral reef full of wildlife and lined with a white sandy beach. As a secluded community of vacation homes, you’ll find yourself in another pace and time. We are located 1.5 hours south of the Cancun Airport, only 5 minutes to the Tulum Ruins, and just 15 minutes north of Tulum Pueblo. The community here at Soliman Bay is friendly and laid back. In the slow seasons you might have the beach all to yourself. Most folks are content to simply spend their days lounging at the pool, exploring the beach, waking for sunrise, bird watching, kayaking and snorkeling (motorboats and fishing prohibited). With our convenient location to Tulum Pubelo mor...
