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.

Georgeous - great vacattion!

  • 5 out 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!

Hard to imagine much better

  • 5 out of 5
Not much to say other than the place is pretty amazing. A little off the beaten path but exactly what we are looking for. Pool deck, overlooking the beach is perfect and covered outdoor living is everything you want. Kitchen is very well equipped/modern- could use some more pots and pans. Bedrooms and utlities were perfect. Caretakers are exactly what you want and will be as involved or not as involved as you need. Beautiful spot- hope to stay there again. If you want to make Spagehtti, you might want to buy a Big Pot at Chedraui.

Beachfront luxury with everything you need for a perfect vacation

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful week at villa escapar with good friends and their children. Manuel and Luisa took such great care of all of us - from showing us the amazing snorkeling spot hidden just around the bend from the house to preparing delicious meals and snacks. The house has fantastic views and is wonderfully appointed (and we're very particular). The little neighborhood its in is very cute and has a few restaurants to choose from, but there are plenty of other excellent choices within a 10-20 minute drive. If you like the beach, snorkeling, relaxing by the pool and being pampered, this is the place for you.

Amazing stay in a GORGEOUS house!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed for a week (6/28-7/5) at this house, 6 adults and 6 kids (1-13 years). Everyone loved the house, the views, and all the things to do. The house is just like it is pictured. We are discerning travelers and some things that caught our attention included LOTS of extra towels and linens, PLENTY of dishes, and SUPREMELY COMFORTABLE beds.
Manuel and Luisa, the caretakers, are the nicest people you will meet and go out of the way to make your stay enjoyable. Manuel took us and the kids on turtle walks to see the turtles laying eggs, snorkeling in the bays nearby, fishing in the ocean out front, and picking coconuts off the trees.We asked Luisa and Manuel to make all our meals for the week for a fixed rate and it was the best! They did all the grocery shopping, cooking, serving, and cleaning up! Manuel kept us plied with margaritas, pina coladas (virgin ones for the kids), and endless bowls of guacamole, salsas, and garlic shrimp! They cooked us a variety of foods including Huaranches, Empanadas, Enchiladas, Chicken Pibil, Chile Rellenos, Flan, Churros, and even a whole barbequed goat (Cabrito). All were excellent and highly recommended. By the third day, we stopped picking items from the menu and just left it all up to them. We were so happy we ended up paying them double of what we had agreed upon. They truly are the best part of the house.
Regarding activities for adults and kids, the house is on a nice quiet stretch, we only saw our neighbors twice, otherwise the beach was empty. The pool is completely shaded after 1 pm or so and the kids camped out in there all day long. While the beach is sandy, the ocean floor out front is very rocky but relatively flat and we were out riding the waves (with appropriate footwear and extra care) every day. The ocean in the front of the beach is very shallow and the water is crystal clear, so you can find a nice safe spot to enjoy the waves. There were lots of big fish that would come into the shallows and we even tried our hand at some spear fishing! The Cenote nearby is ok, too much current for the little kids. They preferred to snorkel in the Bay that is to the left of the house. In addition to the menagerie of tropical fish, we also saw sting rays, lobsters, barracudas, puffer fish and other exotic sea life. We also went to Xel-Ha (includes free zip-lines that land in water).
We have nothing negative to say about the house, and will return here if we come back to the area for another vacation!

Beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
Our recent stay at Villa Escapar was paradise. The house is gorgeous and comfortable. We love how it has many different areas to suit our needs. From the roof top deck, to the covered porch area, to the palapa by the pool, to the palapa and chairs on the sand - each of us had our own secluded area to relax. The kids, big and small, loved the hammock!

I will agree with a previous review, if you want to explore the beach you will need water shoes for climbing over rocks, but it is well worth it.

As for Manuel and Luisa - awesome and sweet is all I can say. Louisa cooked delicious local meals and Manuel gave us tips for exploring the beaches nearby.

Thank you for allowing us to share in the beauty of Tulum!!

Spectacular home near Tulum

  • 5 out of 5
We have been renting homes in the Caribbean, Central America and Mexico for the last 12 years, and this is the most spectacular home we have ever stayed in. Not only is it beautiful to look at, but is is arranged and equipped nicely. Our favorite part of the home was the beautiful pool and gorgeous outdoor space. There were so many nice, shady places to relax outside, it was hard to have time to experience them all. Upon arrival we were greeted by Luisa and Manuel and there was a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers and homemade guacamole and pico de gallo waiting for us. What a great welcome after a day of travel that didn't go so well.

The home is about a 10-12 minute drive to Tulum, which we found to be a charming little town with a great mexian restaurant called La Malquerida. We enjoyed it so much, we had dinner there twice during our stay. The staff is charming, the food delicious and the Mojitos were great!!!

The only negative we had at all was the beach is not a smooth, soft, sandy beach. It is directly on a reef which allows for great shell hunting and exploring for various sea creatures, but is not great for riding the waves and body surfing. You definitely needed sturdy water shoes to climb along the rocks and coral.

The beach does have a lot of character and is beautiful to look at. We saw new sea turtle tracks every morning in front of the house, and were lucky enough to see a group of baby turtles hatch from their nest and run into the ocean. Our children were thrilled with that experience.

We did find a great sandy beach in Tulum, which was open to the public so we went body surfing there two different days.

All in all, we loved this area of Mexico and prefer it over the Cancun or Playa areas farther north. We were a group of 6 adults and 3 children. We had plenty of space to spread out and preparing meals in the well-equipped kitchen was easy. It was so nice to having a dining room table that could seat all of us at once. We would definitely stay at Villa Escapar again. Happy travels!
