About the property

Queen-Bdrm, Bathroom, Kitchen, Living Area, Patio And Huge Pool Right In Tulum

Note: Casa Kanuk is a 1,600 sq. ft. house with two separate units — a 1-bedroom unit on the top floor, a 2-bedroom unit on the main floor. Both have their own entrances, patios, kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms. Please, no pets and no smoking indoors.

Casa Kanuk is your place in paradise. Enjoy a huge pool, powerful A/C in every room, tons of space to lounge about, all the comforts of home to make your own meals and relax with your morning coffee, and best of all — unlike most other properties in Tulum — Casa Kanuk puts you within walking distance of everything this magical town has to offer.

Restaurants, cafes, bars, a recreational park and shopping are all a short stroll away. Plus, you can bike to the beach, cenotes and the famous Tulum ruins with ease. Casa Kanuk's location makes it the best choice to put you near all the action and conveniences of Tulum. And, when it's time to hit the beach, taxis are always nearby to transport you in minutes to the beach of your choice for very little cost. Casa Kanuk gives you an authentic taste of life in the Mayan Riviera, but in a luxurious casa with fantastic creature comforts, sunset views from the rooftop and a pool you can actually swim laps around. Did we mention how big the pool is? Bienvenidos!

About Lee Jones

Owning a casa near a Caribbean beach has been a fantasy of ours since high school. Now, we can proudly say we are living our dream. We searched and researched where to build our casa. Once we visited Tulum, we knew instantly that we had found our place, and within weeks we returned to buy a piece of land and begin our Caribbean adventure.

Lee Jones purchased this house in 2016

Why Lee Jones chose Tulum

We designed Casa Kanuk ourselves and were involved every step of the way. We hope you like what we came up with. While others are building outside of town — in what can only be described as developing "suburbs" — we wanted to be a part of the original community. We chose our location so we could experience the authentic Mexico and Mayan Riviera (not the suburban lifestyle we are accustomed to at our Canadian home). But, most of all, we wished to be able to walk to get our morning coffee or grab baked goods and fruit from the local market without it being an inconvenience.

What makes this house unique

Casa Kanuk puts you within a close walk to everything Tulum has to offer. Many other properties — especially in the developments of La Valeta and Aldea Zama — are located just far enough away that you need to cab everywhere. Casa Kanuk allows you to walk or bike with ease to every restaurant, shop and bar. And, when you do want to go to the beach, you'll find taxis just at the end of the street or on the nearby main drag no problemo.

Other features that make Casa Kanuk stand out are the pool and patios. You'll find yourself outdoors lots, so we made sure the pool is actually large enough for exercise and socializing. Many properties advertise a pool but they are often more akin to a wading pool or a glorified tub. And, with a spacious patio and a sunset rooftop, you may just not want to leave the house.

Fantastic oasis but still close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Space and pool were fantastic & Bill/Lanna gave us all the information we needed to get started exploring the Tulum area. Great location in neighborhood & short walk to stores to re-stock ice/drinks/etc & short walk to lots of great food/nightlife options. Would absolutely stay here again when we return.

Owner's Response: Gracias, Bill! So glad you like the place as much as we do. And, if you return, it will be even better! We're always adding more finishing touches with each of our own treks to the casa. Thanks for choosing us and we hope you can return someday soon. Take care.

Relaxing and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

This was the beginning half of our first-ever family vacation to the Yucatan Peninsula. Since the second half would be in a gargantuan time-share resort, we decided to rent something more low-key to get more of a feel for this part of Mexico.

Casa Kanuk is ideally located just a few blocks from the main drag in the town of Tulum. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and if you just want to chill the owner has created an oasis in the back yard with a shaded seating area and a large swimming pool.

If you want to explore town the Casa is an easy 5 minute walk to several excellent (and very inexpensive) restaurants. Tacos al Pastor at La Chiapanecas are not to be missed.

A longer walk (about 1 km) takes you to a sort of mid-town restaurant/bar area with great food options and places with live entertainment nightly.

Anything beyond town, such as the ruins, Playa Tulum, or the local cenotes are easily

reached by collectivo or cab.

For further excursions like Playa del Carmen or Chichen Itza I recommend renting a car.

The upper level of Casa Kanuk is spacious and very well lit with large windows, a sliding glass door to a private patio overlooking the pool, and a huge sundeck on the roof.

The bedroom is large with a comfy Queen size bed and if you have small children there are two sofas in the front living room.

The large kitchen and fridge allowed us to load up on food and drinks so we could eat-in and drink poolside.

Lee was the perfect host as he was available with answers and advice anytime.

We will definitely return to his place on our next visit.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kanuk was wonderful! The house was clean, air conditioned, the bed was comfortable and the pool was so refreshing. Bill and Lanna, the property managers, went above and beyond to answer all my questions before the trip and even took my daughter and I to a local pizza place the night we arrived after dark. Casa Kanuk is a short walk to town or you can walk up the street and catch a taxi if you prefer. I loved being in a real neighborhood of locals who couldn't have been nicer. It felt much more authentic than staying in a resort. When we return to Tulum I will definitely stay at Casa Kanuk.

TripAdvisor ranks Tulum as the world's #1 emerging travel destination. Casa Kanuk puts you at the heart of this magical town with everything just a short walk or a bike ride away.

Tulum's beaches are ranked among the best in the world. Swim, dive and snorkel in freshwater cenotes and Earth's second largest barrier coral reef. Dine on fresh seafood (the ceviche is a must), Mexican and Maya dishes, and international cuisine from Thai to fresh-made pasta. Or, just order in a wood-fired pizza and hang out by the pool.
