About the property

Fabulous, new, contemporary beachfront villa with infinity pool

Casa Pelagia was fully completed in 2016 and is a beautifully elegant, contemporary home. As soon as you step through the main doors you will be delighted by the open airy atmosphere and the large sliding windows which really take advantage of the wonderful views out over and it's ever-changing palette of colours. The House is located in a beautifully protected corner of Tankah bay just inside the reef which enjoys calm, shallow, crystal clear waters, ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding.

The ground floor comprises a comfortably appointed open plan sitting room and dining area which gives on to a large covered terrace with further outside seating and dining pool-side. There is a well equipped open plan kitchen with large American fridge, extra 'beer fridge', stainless steel gas cooker, micro wave and dishwasher, granite counter tops and a breakfast bar with seating for 3.

There are two guests suites, one on the ground floor level and one on the first floor. Both have king-size four-poster beds, private bathrooms with shower and large sliding windows with private terraces overlooking the bay.

The master suite is really special! There is a king-size bed and a chaise long for relaxing with magnificent views over the bay. The enormous private terrace is ideal for your morning yoga or exercise, or just to sit and enjoy your coffee, or champagne, and take in the view. There is a walk-in closet, vanity area with double basins and private bathroom with shower and tub with sea view.

Casa Pelagia has air conditioning in all bedrooms and fans throughout the house, wifi internet and flat-screen TV in the sitting room with satellite TV and Netflix.

There is a wonderful roof-top terrace with a 50 sq m palapa, which enjoys 360 degree views over the bay and the jungle. The shade and breeze up here are truly fabulous and very conducive to relaxing with a book in one of the loungers, bird watching, definitely star-gazing, not to mention sunrise and sunset!

There is an infinity pool with cascade which can be heated on request, giving directly onto the beach with small palapa and plenty of loungers and hamoc to relax in.

Presently there are 3 restaurant/bars within walking distance, two dive centres and Cenote Manatee. This is an open cenote in the jungle which eventually opens into the sea from an underground cave. From July to October one can enjoy the amazing experience of watching turtles come ashore to lay their eggs and later in the season to watch the babies hatch.

It is a 10 minute drive into Tulum Pueblo with its amazing Mayan ruins and wealth of cafes and restaurants, and 15 minutes to Tulum beaches with fabulous beach clubs, bars and excellent choice of restaurants.

There are a wealth of cenotes and underground rivers to explore in the area plus some excellent theme parks such as Xcaret, Xplor and Xel-Ha.

Riviera Maya Golf course at Bahia Principe is 15 minutes drive away and there are many more wonderful courses, including the PGA Maya Coba course, within 45 minutes.

The Mayan Riviera is truly a paradise to explore and this is the ideal place from which to do so.

Beachside infinity swimming pool

About Jennifer JONES

Mike is Australian, Jennifer is English but we have lived on the Cote d'Azur, South of France for the past twenty years.

The moment we set foot in Tankah Bay we fell in love with it and decided that this is where we wanted to build our dream home and spend most of our time. We will enjoy sharing our home with you and hope that you will love it as much as we do!

Jennifer JONES purchased this house in 2015

Why Jennifer JONES chose Tulum

The Riviera Maya is a wonderful location. It has something for most discerning travellers, but it's real charm lies in it's natural beauty. The Caribbean sea, the jungle, fauna and flora really bring one back to life's essentials. Tulum is a very spiritual location with many yoga retreats and eco-chic restaurants and boutique hotels, but then there is always Playa del Carmen, a short drive away, for shopping, nightclubs and bars if that is what you desire.

What makes this house unique

Casa Pelagia is a warm and welcoming house that is comfortable whilst being modern and stylish. The house enjoys a perfect location in n a sheltered spot just inside the reef which makes the swimming and snorkelling exceptional, right from our beach. It is quiet and peaceful; the ideal place to relax, with plenty of space for everyone to spread out. We have a pretty garden which attracts all kinds of birds and butterflies, not to mention the wealth of sea birds constantly on view.

Fabulous vacation in beautiful beach front home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 7 days at the Casa. Everything we could possibly need, well equipped kitchen, great personal chef, lovely people to keep the place clean and functioning. Pool is lovely, as is the garden. Used the BBQ, Kayaks, snorkels, Ideally would have spent another week there to make the most of the house and surrounding country, the Cenotes, the Mayan ruins, the Tulum Beach restaurants, etc.

Spectacular property with many nice touches!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Pelagia is beautiful ! All the amenities of home. The bedrooms are spacious, all with spectacular views of the ocean. The kitchen has everything you need if you get tired of eating out and want s home cooked meal.

We had an incredible week relaxing by the pool and enjoying many of the quaint restaurants in the Tulum area. Gitanos, Posada Margherita and Mi Amor were our three favorites. Fernando and Manuela (staff at Casa Pelagia) were wonderful.

I would definitely recommend Casa Pelagia! We plan on coming back!

A wonderful refuge

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at Casa Pelagia. We are a family with three teens, and the house was perfect to allow everyone to enjoy the sun, sand, and warmth, and also just chill. The amenities were excellent and the location secluded enough to be nice and quiet, yet only a short drive to the scene in Tulum. We’d definitely recommend it.

Fantastic Private Beach House.

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a secluded bay that gives you the necessary privacy to enjoy with friends and family. If you are looking for a peaceful place close to all Tulum activities, this is the house.

The architecture is great, the house is spotless, full of details and very well equipped (beach towels included!).

Fernando and Manuela are very nice, helpful and always courteous. Fernando even help me to change a flat tire.

Jennifer the owner, is extremely nice and easy to work with. The complete process was simple and flawless.

Thank you Jennifer for sharing with us your fantastic house!

All the best!
