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.

Incredible Experience

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Escapar. John was easy to get a hold of in setting up our rental and the house caretakers Manuel and Luisa were top notch in every way. My whole family whole heartedly recommends Villa Escapar and will be looking forward to repeat visits.

Nothing but the best

  • 5 of 5

I have to say the this property is the best we have rented on Home away. The property is set at the North end of Tulum on a secluded beach. A couple of houses share the beach but no big hotels or high rises near your private location. Manuel and Luisa are perfect hosts tending to whatever you need. We had a big group and Luisa was up for the challenge to prepare some unbelievable meals. The property has every amenity needed. Would highly recommend you stay here.

BEST FAMILY VACATION. AMAZING MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to begin. With a large group like we had and 4 babies, it's impossible to find a vacation home spacious enough to keep you from killing each other. Villa Escapar, made our vacation a dream vacation. More than the amazing home, the amazing caretakers Manuel & Luisa made life so simple. Don't get me wrong, the home is more amazing than the photos and every inch of it is very well maintained inside and out. If you're lucky enough to get one of the 2 master bedrooms with the large curved windows, I recommend sleeping with the windows open. When it gets dark, it reveals the stars and you feel like you are sleeping in a planetarium... AMAZING.

I agree with all the reviews, the cooking is better than any restaurant. Hands down the best pico de gallo I've ever had, which was made fresh every day for our large family. If it's not on the menu, just ask, they can more than likely make it... like my craving for octopus. We went fishing one day and Manuel did all the cleaning and cooked them up 2 different ways. I wanted to treat the kids to lobster on the last day, and YUP, fresh caught lobster arrived. In short, the level of service is as good if not better than any five star resort.

We were also lucky enough to be there for turtle hatching season, so if you can somehow plan your trip for that, it truly is an experience of a lifetime.

The rocky water did not allow us to swim in the ocean safely, but the swimming pool was a much better option and safer for the little ones. But if you're an adult that have to swim in the ocean, be warned, a few of us tried going out and got cut up pretty bad.

In short, take it from someone who read all reviews and write many on tripadvisor, this place is all that and more. And, yes we gave them a great tip when we left, and they deserved every penny of it. We will absolutely return... if they'll have us. Haha. Te amo mucho Manuel y Luisa y gracias para todo.

Great house and pool. Very bouncy access road.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Just as pictured. Large and extremely well maintained bedrooms and baths. (Four bedrooms in the main house and a fifth upstairs in a second building, with the two caretakers staying downstairs when guests are in residence.) Lots of great common areas for family or group gatherings both inside the house and outside - very large kitchen table, couches in the living room and the upstairs balcony, another seating area on the roof, etc. And the pool is great, especially for kids but adults too. We had eight adults and three small children and there was always plenty of room, to be together or to be separate.

The beach in front of the house is well graded and very well maintained. A good deal of seaweed washed up while we were there, but Manuel was out there every day raking it up. Unfortunately, only some of adjoining property owners do the same. Some of the other properties are left ungraded and with plastic bottles and other junk washed up. So a long walk along the beach is certainly possible, but not as enjoyable as if all the beach areas were equally well maintained. As others have noted, there are stones in the water (not on the beach, just in the water). If you want a sandy swimming area, there are a number of possibilities in Tulum itself. We spent a very pleasant half day at Ziggy Beach (a restaurant and beach area) in Tulum -- the tables and lounge chairs are free if you buy lunch (and the food is very good).

At least when we were there, the dirt road from the highway to the house was in bad shape, with lots of potholes that you couldn't avoid, making for a very bouncy and unpleasant ride (especially, of course, if you're sitting in the third row of a minivan, as I was a good deal of the time). That's not a problem if you're going to stay at the house most of the time, but you'll probably find that you won't want to drive back and forth on this road more than once a day.

Amazing Home Rental for Group Celebration and Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing time at Villa Escapar. We went for my 40th birthday and everything was seriously perfect. ALL of the bedrooms are very spacious with very well appointed bathrooms. This made it easy assigning rooms as everyone had a special space of their own. The public spaces have so much space and give you a lot off options for hanging out, relaxing, playing games, enjoying food, and whatever else you could desire. Having the gorgeous pool overlooking the ocean was extra special. Though it's rocky in the water on this part of the beach, the water was lovely. Walking North down the beach there is a great spot for snorkeling with coral.

We had SUCH a good time and I sincerely hope to go back and stay again. The hosts, Manuel and Louisa, could not have been more accommodating - from doing grocery shopping, to cooking, to making suggestions in the area. Having some Spanish conversation skills certainly helped with this :) I researched forever before deciding on Villa Escapar. I can save you a lot of time - just book it! You will be so happy you did :)

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the home is as advertised! It's well done from top to bottom. There were 9 of us (4 kids from 2-13 years of age) and everyone had a blast. Manuel and Luisa are fantastic care takers. Simply two of the nicest people we've ever met. As a bonus, they can really cook and make a mean margarita! Every night we found ourselves on the beach watching the giant sea turtles...hours of entertainment. The beach area in Tulum is a really neat place packed with awesome local restaurants. Flats fishing in Ascension Bay was a blast as well. This one will definitely stay on our short list for future vacations!
