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.

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!

RELXATION AT ITS FINEST!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a marvelous stay at this villa! We were amazed from the moment we opened the door as the photos really do not do it justice. I was very nervous about booking this way as it was our first time booking privately rather than at an all -inclusive, but we had a very positive experience booking through John..no issues whatsoever, despite my final payment arriving late :) The pool is spectacular! Manuel and Luisa keep everything in top shape, we didn't need to do anything other than our dishes (thank you!) A very special mention to Manuel and Luisa for helping us when my mother had a medical emergency on our first day. They helped us obtain medical assistance and even offered to pick my parents up at the hospital as we didn't have our rental car yet...they were so sweet! We couldn't really swim here as being on the point, rather than in the bay, the surf was quite rough. You definitely need to bring water shoes to walk the beach (thanks for that tip from someone else here!) as it is very rocky along the shore... It is also very close to the reef making for some very interesting sea shell hunting. I somehow managed to haul at least 25 pounds of shells home in my luggage of all shapes and sizes some of which I now proudly display in my Mexican bowl on my dining room table :) We also discovered many living forms of sea life along the shore like star fish, sea urchins, snails and small fish which kept us occupied for hours! We took in a few of the local attractions such as the ruins at Tulum (go early), Xel-Ha (awesome!), Hidden Worlds Adventure (very cool cave swimming but make reservations!), the beach at Tulum (Ziggy's beach club is where we parked, we had lunch and drinks here and used their sun beds and swam...awesome beach!) and we spent a day shopping in Playa Del Carmen on 5th Ave. But alas....we did miss the turtles :( We also spent several days just lounging around the pool and enjoying the beautiful view, which never gets tiresome. I love showing off my pictures to my friends and would recommend this villa to anyone.

MAGICAL PLACE, LOVELY HOUSE, GENTLE PEOPLE

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic week at Villa Escapar, which is built to Texas luxury house standards, no expense spared - aircon, satellite TV, internet - great views, bathrooms and bedrooms and spacious public spaces. The pool is topnotch and looks out over the sea and a coral bay with sandy beach (bring water shoes). Manuel and Luisa, the caretakers are lovely and not intrusive, but keep the property spotless and tidy. Tankah Tres is an unmetalled road, so hire a 4 x4, it is a short hop from the main Tulum-Cancun road. Places we found good: Casa Cenotes up the road, real TX BBQ every Sunday plus great fish dishes and steak and an amzing dive area/aquifer; Mezzanine on Tulum Beach (aquamarine Caribbean beach) does Thai food of a good standard and has a DJ party night on Fridays; the beach bar up the coast about 300 yards which does great cocktails and has an amazing interior; Oscar & Lalo, nice food and a pet monkey for the kids. Loads of dolphin places, but check before you go, some are like a Sea World and have a whole day's worth of adventures: enough for an action packed week or fortnight. Equally, you can spend hours loitering around the property and making margaritas with the Margaritaville frozen concoction machine.......growing older but not up......

PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 out of 5
This place is truly amazing! The ten of us adults felt like we were staying in a movie star's home. We had the beach all to ourselves and the pool is beautiful and perfect! It is in a very quiet place and off of the beaten path but not too far from town and the great restaurants, make sure you have a car. Watching the turtles make their way up the beach to lay their eggs was really amazing! We can't wait to come back and stay here again next year!
