Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvelous time and the last 5 days were a dream come true!! Your home is fabulous. Your attention to detail is exquisite. The new chandelier is breathtaking. The pool, the views of the ocean, the rooftop patio, and the fountain were even more beautiful than we expected. Manuel and Luisa added an authentic flair to our Mexican experience & were such a pleasure to be around.

We were a group of 10 adults--5 couples in the age range of 40-48. All well travelled and have done vacations in many different locations throughout the world. VILLA ESCAPAR is now by far our favorite Mexican vacation! The beautiful beach, the villa, the peace and serenity...everything exceeded our expectations. I cannot say enough good things about the property and it's location as it is truly a peaceful and secluded getaway.

Both Manuel and Luisa (property caretaker and his housekeeping/cook wife) deserve a 5-diamond rating! Their service was nothing but the best. The property is in impeccable condition as well as the home itself. And the food...truly delightful. We were not planning to have Luisa cook for us as much as we did but once we got a taste of her delicious fare, we couldn't resist and ended up having her cook for us breakfast every morning and dinner almost every night! She is by far an amazing cook who knows how to make perfect authentic Mexican meals. Some of our group members also went out with Manuel to dive and fish and they brought back lobster, crab, octopus, and some other types of fish and Luisa made the most delicious meals out of it!!!

This is the perfect place to go for a getaway...regardless of your level of activity. We were planning to spend more time away from the property exploring and engaging in other adventures but found it to be such a nice place to stay that we ended up only leaving for part of 2 days during our 8 day stay!

It was difficult to return home but did return feeling fully recharged and refreshed from our amazing vacation!

WILL BE RETURNING IN THE FUTURE!!!!

Wonderful place for a special vacation

  • 5 of 5

We go to this part of mexico every year for my birthday: my grown children, spouses, partners and now grandkids. Since this was a big birthday, we did something special and rented villa Escapar.

The experience could not have been better. Beautiful facility, nicely appointed, spacious, great well equipped kitchen, wonderful dining area that could seat the entire family. The outdoors were impeccably maintained. The pool delightful and the granddaughters could not get enough of it.

The beach was nice and tranquil, exactly what we were looking for.

Manuel and Luiza, the caretakers were simply wonderful. Very nice and helpful. We hired Luiza to cook a family meal one evening and it was simply delicious.

We loved our time at Villa Escapar and cannot wait to return for the next major birthday.

As good as it looks! A fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

I almost thought it looked too good to be true when I was lucky enough to find Villa Escapar for a family reunion right after Christmas. It was just amazing. The location is to die for, the "secret" back road ( have Manuel call ahead) to SolimonBay reminded us of our Home, Greece, in the 1970s, when it was unspoiled by tourism, with one little shack on the beach for delicious fish tacos. That is a must! Our group ranged in age from 89 to 12 and everyone had a terrific time. Manuel and Luisa were like family and we hugged and kissed good bye sincerely sad to go. The home cooked meals were just that- homecooked and good. Tulum restauants were great, don't miss Hartwood and Posada Margarita. The owner is very reasonable and helpful and I already have my deposit back and it hasn't been thirty days. There is something for everyone at the villa and nearby. We brought our own paddleboards and kayaks and had a blast. Oh- and one minor medical emergency worked out absolutely perfectly with the hospital in Tulum. Very professional and quick. I would go back tomorrow to VIlla Escapar. It really is as good as, if not better than, the photos.

Amazing

This is truly a magical place! Luisa and Manuel are so sweet and John the homeowner was nothing but a pleasure to work with. The pictures do not do the house justice. I would return in a heartbeat! Thank You John, Luisa and Manuel!!

PERFECT VACATION SPOT FOR ALL AGES!

  • 5 of 5

What a great Christmas vacation we had this year at Villa Escapar!

Our family met from Austin and Chicago and included a 6 year old, two 14 year olds, three 20-somethings and the rest a range up to age 76...I can honestly say we all had one of the best vacations of our life. The villa felt like our own private resort (which was great for being together as a group and enjoying some of our holiday traditions from home.) It is in a great neighborhood and we walked both to Cenotes (underground caverns for snorkeling/diving) and restaurants. The cute beach road of Tulum is easy to drive to and we had a few amazing dinners and lunches there (The Hartwood, Matteos, Tabano).

The villa itself is wonderful - plenty of places for all of us to gather both inside and out and the views throughout the day are amazing. But the best part is Luisa and Manuel - they helped with anything we needed, stayed flexible from day to day as our plans would sometimes change, and their smiles made us happy. By the end we felt they were friends.

We would definitely recommend Tulum and Villa Escapar to anyone and hope to get back there for another visit in the future.

Georgeous - great vacattion!

  • 5 of 5

The home, beach, pool are well maintained and beautiful! Every bedroom has an ensuite bath allowing privacy for all guests. Tulum offered excellent dining, shopping and beach bars for excursions. Manuel and Luisa, the caretakers, are gracious and willing to help in any way, taking us on Turtle hatching "hunts" and locating baby turtles to help reach the surf. They cooked several delicious meals and, if arrangements are made, will have breakfast ready every morning. Manuel makes a mean margarita - a day can be made of those and the pool! Stay up late enough and you might be able to see the mother turtles in the moonlight as they make their up the beach to lay their eggs. You most certainly see their fresh tracks every morning (Manuel rakes the beach daily so you know the turtles have returned each night). Highly recommend the massage services - an excellent start to a vacation. This was the 1st week long vacation we had taken in years and the 1st to such a beautiful and relaxing place. The bar has been set high for future vacations and we'll be back to Villa Escapar!
