About Jennifer

We have 2 adult children and a daughter in law. We love to come to Tankah Bay to relax and reconnect. We are looking forward to adding a grandchild or 2 into our family bonding time in Tankah.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2013

Why Jennifer chose Tulum

We always knew we wanted to live on the ocean. I am originally from Bermuda and admittedly a beach snob. We have travelled extensively and have seen some pretty nice beaches but not any I wanted to live on until we found Tankah Bay! There is something very magical about the Bay. The turtles agree because they nest and hatch here every year. The world's second largest reef is right outside your door! The bay is calm, shallow and breathtakingly beautiful.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this home it was in desperate need of some TLC but the minute I walked into the front door and saw the Caribbean Ocean from every window I knew it was a view I was never going to get tired of. Every morning when I look out the window the ocean is the first thing I see. I walk down stairs and the ocean is the view I see all the way down the stairs. Add a cup of coffee; watch the sun come up over the ocean and witness Nirvana. The ocean's colors change from moment to moment. I am always delighted discovering new shades of blue and green in the water and sky.

We had a wonderful getaway at Casa Pepem. Gorgeous setting, well equipped, will definitely be back.

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend Casa Pepem. Starting with the house itself, you could not be in a better location closer to the water. There is a great front yard beach area with beach chairs and lots of sun and shade that leads right into the water. The casa Pepem team rakes the beach everyday so it's always clean. The beach is rocky and shallow but great for the kayaks and stand up paddle board provided for free use. The house is very well equipped and has two master suites with king beds and their own bathroom. We went with my parents and our nine month old and it was perfect for our family. Lots of common space for the baby to roam around and a crib provided for her in the back bedroom. We walked to dinner two of the four nights, to the restaurant next door and then the pizza place two doors down. There is also a small restaurant at Casa Cenote three doors down. Our favorite meal out was at Chamicos, literally eating fresh seafood in the sand! The house is across the street from a beautiful Cenote where we went to snorkel. But the real gem is Jennifer, Elder, Elda and the whole crew. Jennifer was incredibly accommodating from the beginning. We were actually supposed to visit in March but we had a family emergency so Jennifer was kind enough to give us credit to use the house at our convenience. When we arrived Elder, the property manager was there to greet us and help us in with our things. He was extremely kind and helpful the entire time - we were in touch by WhatsApp throughout the stay. If anything came up, he was on top of it instantly! His wife Elda cooked for us one night, we highly recommend her Sopa de Lima! They also picked up fish for us to cook ourselves one night. Super acomodating on all levels. Thanks again Jennifer and Elder! We'll be back!

A tranquil and relaxed place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the home. It was very clean and well maintained. Everything worked just as it should and we were surprised by our welcoming dishes of guacamole and salsa as well as the initial groceries on hand. We had a good time in our 6 days and would certainly recommend the house as a quiet getaway. We miss the "old Tulum" of 10 years ago but it's still a great getaway.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Great place, take advantage of the snorkling, kayaks and paddleboard on the bay. Wind was a bit noisy at night, but part of the experience. Would love to go back again some day.

Beautiful, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here! Excellent location with a few restaurants within walking distance. Beautiful cenote right across the street. Elder and Jennifer always available to answer questions, and the house was cleaned daily. A lot of seaweed on the beach, but clear waters and awesome snorkeling, we found a lot of conch shells! We took advantage of the paddle boards and kayaks. Defiantly take water shoes. It was a great week, we miss it already!

Great Time On the Riviera Maya in Home On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at Casa Pepem having a great time. Owner's communication before and during stay was prompt and helpful. Caretaker and staff of the home were super attentive cleaning in and out. We had several meals prepared by the staff and they were excellent. That created a problem that some didn't want to go out for dinner, but we did. And Casa Pepem's location could not be better. It was a short drive into Tulum, the ruins, beaches, shops and clubs. Walking to neighboring business meant good food and drink. Try the 'Best Margarita's in the World". When you make a reservation an extensive booklet is provided with everything you need to know and local recommendations. This was extremely helpful. Casa Pepem is highly recommended and I won't hesitate to return. Might have to go back because a week in paradise wasn't enough time to do everything.

Amazing Time at Casa Pepem!

  • 5 of 5

Great house and great location! Even before our vacation started, Jennifer was extremely helpful. She was always prompt with responses to any questions we had. She provided us with information for the house and details on the surrounding location. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Ernesto (the landscaper) and he provided us the keys to the house. That was followed up by a visit from Elder (the property manager) who answered any specific questions we had about the house and the area. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised with an assortment of beverages and freshly made salsa and guacamole (both were delicious). The house had everything that was required for our stay. They had everything from a fully stocked kitchen to linens and towels.

The house is located in a beautiful bay. The views are amazing from sunrise to sunset. Due the reef at the outer reaches of the bay, the water is extremely calm which makes it great for the stand-up paddleboard or kayaks (both provided by the owner). We took Jennifer's recommendation and brought along a pair of water shoes since some parts to the bay are rocky. I would recommend the same for future guests.

There are a handful of restaurants in the immediate area. Next door is Cielo Maya. It's extremely convenient for meals and cocktails. We also took in O'Tulum for some cocktails and Oscar & Lalo for dinner. Both are highly recommended. Our favorite location was Chamico's. It is a beachside restaurant located just north in Soliman Bay. The food is very simple and delicious. It's a great place to spend an afternoon. You can reach restaurant by driving north on the same road the house is located on. You need to contact the restaurant ahead of time to have them open a gate that allows through access (Elder provided us the phone number). There are additional restaurant options in downtown Tulum and the hotels located along the beach further south.

The house is in a great location for so many activities in the surrounding area. We saw a number of ruins and cenotes. It's a quick drive into town and the hotels along the beach. From the Cancun airport it is an easy drive down 307. My only recommendation would be a Jeep if you can reserve a rental. The access road to the house is bumpy for a sedan.

Overall, we had an amazing time and would recommend this location to our friends and family. It was a trip we will remember for a lifetime and would like to thank Jennifer for being such a wonderful host.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you as guests! Sorry about the road in. I just heard the road was in rough shape. We had heavy rain in October which created all the potholes. It is scheduled to be repaired shortly. We are so happy you enjoyed the house and area! Thanks Jennifer

There is something for everyone in the area. Mayan Ruins and historical sites abound.

World famous restaurants alongside local taco stands. It's hard to determine which has the best food most of the time!

You would not be able to visit all the crystal clear fresh water cenotes (water caves) if you lived here forever. There are caves that specialize in scuba diving and those that are great to snorkel, kayak or swim in.

Just want to relax, get away from it all and chill on your private beach or join the hustle bustle of the world famous white power sand beach of Tulum; it's a hard decision!

All watersports from kayaking to kite boarding are available. There's a beach and an activity for every taste. Snorkel with the turtles or see them nest and hatch.

Shop for the latest designer wear in the chic boutiques on the Tulum beach road. But make sure to take home some hand made authentic local Mayan souvenirs.

Whatever you are looking for in a vacation you will find it here. It's the best place to make memories with your friends, family and loved ones.
