“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The most perfect place to completely shut out the world and truly relax..... True, it is a little way from the main part of the beach area where the restaurants etc. are based, but still within walking distance. True it is "rustic" as a previous person put it, and bare of perhaps the finer things in life. True, there is the fact that you are in a nature reserve which at the entrance you will be asked to pay to enter, but this is a small price to pay...and I mean small

All that said, you have almost the entire stretch of beach to yourselves, if (un) lucky we saw 2 people each day as they walked past, sometime no-one at all !!! Dan met us on arrival, and then popped in a couple of times during our 2 week stay, we are familiar with the area so he literally left us to it, which was brilliant.

We had breakfast from the back of a car each morning that drove past honking his horn, which was lovely but also incredibly well priced!! Although we sauntered down to Cafe Banana a couple of times for breakfast too. The best margarita's we think are still at La Zebra, although not the cheapest.

ADD to this we made friends with a beautiful little dog that came to visit us most days, we called him Zorrito "little fox" (see picture) he was such a friendly boy, (we already rescued a Mexican dog in 2010, so could not do it again, although we would have loved too....) SO we have left a box of food for others to enjoy his company, please be nice to him as he has a good heart and will keep an eye on you during your stay :)

So... overall this place is just wonderful, I dont really think that there are many places in the world where you can be completely alone but this is one of them. We would love to return if we can save up enough money to do it all again!!!!!

“Best beach location imaginable”

If you enjoy big, all inclusive resorts with endless buffets, pushing through crowds of loud partiers just to get a beer at the bar, beach chairs lined up side by side on the sand or pool deck, spending your time with other peoples' noisy, poorly behaved, over indulged children, then Casa Estrellita is definitely not for you. If however you prefer to spend your days relaxing, swimming, strolling what is perhaps one of the last stretches of open, undeveloped, pristine beaches in North America, then you should definitely consider renting Casa Estrellita for a week. This cute, comfortable little house located just 15 minutes drive south of Tulum Pueblo provides you with everything you need for a private Mexican beach get away. the house could conceivably accommodate 4 guests, but is much more comfortable with just two. The small but adequately outfitted kitchen has just about everything you need for self catering, and the supermarkets in Tulum offer just about anything you would need to sustain yourself while on vacation. The beach and Caribbean are just a few steps way down the sandy path behind the house. During our stay there were several days when there was no one else in sight anywhere up or down the beach. No beach vendors, no volleyball players, no noisy wedding parties-nothing, nada, nadie-just pure beauty of the sand, the birds the sea, the breeze, the sun. I cannot think of anything better. There are some minor inconveniences that are associated with this "off the grid" location. The electricity is all solar generated and the water is supplied by tanker truck and stored in the house's cistern. So both are in limited supply and need to be conserved. It is helpful to have your own flashlight or head lamp and some bug repellent is also a good idea. The cell phone service and WiFi are pretty much non existent in this area. There is no airconditioning, but the night time breezes provide plenty of night time cooling even during the hottest times of the year. The roof top deck is perfect for sunrise, sunset viewing as well as star gazing. I am sure we will want to return soon.

Liked best: The location and the beach
Liked least: queen size bed. I think a king size would be a big improvement.
