Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Tankah - Casa Rosa-Crystal Sand & Pool
4BR/3BA Beachfront Villa, Tankah, Mexico (Sleeps 8)
Casa Rosa is a privately owned home that fronts onto a gorgeous, picture-perfect white sand beach on Tankah Bay. In immediate proximity to Casa Rosa, there are several fine restaurants, the historic Tulum ruins, Xel-Ha Nature Park, Manatee Cenote, Hidden Worlds Cenote, and several other attractions. This exquisite area is the perfect vacation spot for those who love tropical paradise. The Yucatan hosts the world's second largest reef, which sits 300 feet from Casa Rosa. The reef is a snorkeler's dream, as is the famous Manatee Cenote - a freshwater snorkeling spot with clear, emerald green water and tropical fish, located just 12 houses down the road from Casa Rosa. Sunbathing at the house is also a pleasure either around the pool, on the beach, on our private second floor deck, and even more private third floor star gazing terrace. And for those who love sitting in the shade with a good book, there are plenty of palm trees to curl up under.
The palm tree shaded house adjoins 50 feet of crystal white sand which slips into the Caribbean where you can swim, snorkel, kayak or just play in the warm turquoise water, or take in the whole picturesque scene seated poolside. This relaxed luxury appeals to both children and adults!
Extensive renovations to this charming pink stucco house were recently completed. While retaining the privacy and shade provided by the 15 year old palm trees, the renovations added a beautiful glass tiled pool, an extensive wrap around patio, including in-pool seating, and a mosaic tiled gas-fired BBQ. The kitchen and living room were also remodeled with colorful Mexican tile and mosaics, and new furniture. Outdoors, hammocks and swings abound on the new patio connecting the beach side of the house to the sugar fine sandy shoreline and turquoise waters. The new upstairs terrace features 3 built-in sofas shaded by a new palapa, each with a fantastic Caribbean view.
This large and private second story terrace has elegant night time lighting and affords guests a perfect setting for cocktails and entertaining to the background sounds of waves and swaying palm trees. There is now a private third floor sun deck with exquisite 360degree views of the region - perfect for enjoying sunset cocktails!
Convenient home base: Because we are situated between Akumal and Tulum and just off the main highway, Casa Rosa is a great location from which to take day trips to the many nearby cenotes, eco-parks, the Sian Ka'an Biosphere, dive sites, fishing trips, world class golf courses and Mayan ruins. Chichen-Itza is a 3 hour drive, Tulum is a 10 minute drive, and Coba is only 40 minutes away. Our library has several guide books to these destinations and others, as well as a binder of our personal favorites, plus novels, CD's, and DVD's.
Relaxed luxury: Poolside, on the beach, on the second floor terrace and on the third floor sun deck there are palapas with hammocks, and an assortment of beach chairs and chaise lounges. You can swim or kayak to the reef for excellent snorkeling or swim laps in the nearby cenote. If you are feeling athletic, there are 2 two person kayaks available for your use. Bring dive and snorkel gear, or rent it from the local dive shops.
Comfort and convenience: If you plan on eating in and/or entertaining, Casa Rosa's kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, glassware, cookware, bottled water, as well as a blender, coffee maker, juicer, gas range, and refrigerator. We also have chef service available in home with an outstanding menu so you can bask in home cooked meal luxury. There are supermarkets in nearby Tulum and Akumal where most grocery items and liquors can be purchased or you can shop in Cancun at Costco or Sam's or one of the other large grocery stores. There is maid service 6 days a week and fresh towels and linens are provided for your enjoyment.
Connectivity: Even on vacation, one finds the need to plug into the modern world. Casa Rosa has WiFi throughout for those who need it, as well as flat screen TV's in the Master bedroom and living room, along with the largest selection of English language satellite channels available.
