We rented 4 houses in Tulum. Villa Sian Kaan was down the beach walking distance from the other 3 houses we rented from the same owner. The house was gorgeous, spacious, and truly beachfront. Each house was complete with a stove, oven, refrigerator, full bathrooms, lounge chairs on the beach, and umbrellas. It's walking distance from local hot spots like La Zebra, Casa Banana, Gitano, etc. The owner, Guy, was there to greet us and checked in each day to make sure we were enjoying our stay. He also has some great recommendations on places for lunch, margaritas, and romantic dinners, so make sure to ask! The cleaning staff was extremely nice and respectful of your time there and never intruded. I would HIGHLY recommend any of the homes owned by Guy, even though I want to keep them secret for ourselves!!!
We came from Wisconsin for our daughter's wedding. Staying here added to the beauty and enjoyment of the event. Taxi's were everywhere and made it easy to get to the wedding and tourist events. A crew of family and friends stayed at Villa Sian Ka'an. We couldn't have planned for a better stay! Despite some rain, we couldn't stop being awed by the beauty of the villa and the ocean view! We slept peacefully with the sounds of the crashing surf. The villa is absolutely gorgeous! Our daughter, Sarah, led a few of us in a wonderful 90 minute yoga class on the upper porch as the sun glistened through the palm trees and the waves crashed onto the beach. It was very nice getting to meet Guy who graciously showed us around and even stopped by a couple of times to see that everything was ok. The housekeepers came and did their magic when we were out. The caretakers kept the white sand beach clear and even raked! My husband, who visits a place and then checks it off his list, even said we needed to come back here! Need I say more!

I booked this house for my husband's 60th birthday and invited a group of dear friends to celebrate with us. I have to admit I was a bit nervous upon arrival as I did not know Tulum was off the grid. I didn't know what to expect with power, water, toilets, etc. It turned out to be a complete non-issue as everything in the house worked perfectly and couldn't have been more comfortable or happier.
We arrived just in time for the largest ever recorded hurricane to make landfall ever over on the Pacific side of Mexico. Other than some wind and rain, we felt no effects of the hurricane. We were told it was "off" season for Tulum and the worst time weather wise to be there. But you could have fooled us, the temperature was ridiculously perfect at all times. You just never felt hot or cold...just comfortable and happy. My husband and friends were able to relax, unwind and celebrate unlike any other location we have been to.
Guy was so kind and responsive. He arranged massages for us with Julieta, we highly recommend!! Best massage we've ever had. Also, he arranged the chef Irma to come make breakfast on the morning of my husband's 60th. The food and presentation was impeccable! Best huevos rancheros you will find anywhere! Everyone in Tulum including all the house staff were so incredibly nice. We loved every minute. The only down part was having to leave. Also two of our closest friends couldn't make it, so we're planning on coming back next year. If you're looking for an authentic personal experience with unparalleled beauty, warm waters, perfect temperature, easy walk or taxi into Tulum, this place is perfect for you. This place is the antithesis of cheap Vegas style hotels with all you can eat buffets. If that is what you are looking for, go to Cancun. This house is quality and authenticity on every level. Also, my own personal request, is that renters feed the outdoor neighborhood cat. I don't even like cats and I'm allergic to cats... this cat didn't bother my allergies and was the coolest cat I've ever met.
As you can tell we had the best time. Hope you are lucky enough to enjoy it too.
