Why Sirena Sastré chose Tulum
Casa Retiro Maya is located where dense jungle meets the crystal clear waters and white sand beach, moments away from the UNESCO World Heritage Sian Ka’an which is home to nearly 100 different species. The historic Tulum ruins are just 9.5 kilometers away, as well as the crystal clear cenotes located all around the Yucatan. At Casa Retiro Maya we prioritize the feeling of home and simplicity. To keep true to the heart of our eco family owned vacation rental we rely on word of mouth. This private feel has translated to many repeat guests and referrals. Our goal is to preserve the simplicity of the region. Removing the clutter and allowing our guests to immerse themselves in the raw beauty in nature and what is essential, surrounded by the view of beautiful white sands and the blue Caribbean sea. Simple and relaxed with high attention to detail and service, Casa Retiro Maya is located in the heart of all the best restaurants, shops, and hotels while remaining a world apart. You can easily eat, shop, drink and explore before returning to your private villa to relax and recharge.

Even better than the pictures
I searched long and hard for a nice place to take my family in Tulum. We're a family of six with four kids (23, 21, 18, and 15 - girl, boy, girl, boy). We flew into Cancun from Maryland and rented a van and drove to Tulum. We stopped off along the way in Playa de Carmen for a late lunch and some high energy fun. We arrived as it was getting dark so we were a bit worried about finding it. Luis, the building supervisor, met us at the gate to let us in. (Let me also mention that Luis is AWESOME. He is friendly, attentive and responsive to any needs, and has a great attitude. He kept our beach clean and clear of any seaweed, moved our cushions back and forth to the waterfront palapas, and always has a smile. And why wouldn't he? He works in Paradise. The owner, Luu, is awesome as well. She is truly vested in our family's best interest and aims to please - but again, this place does most of the work by itself) Our girls had their own KING size bed EACH in their own room w their own bathroom, the boys had their own bed (one was a double bed, the other a single) and their own bathroom, and my wife and I took the back bedroom, queen bed, with its own bathroom. The setup was perfect. The living area was huge and enjoyed every day and night. We made breakfast every morning. There is a store about 8 minutes away by car and it is a Mexican Super WalMart w/ EVERYTHING you could possibly need. (you can't buy beer until after 9 AM. Lol. My bad on that one. And btw, a 12 pack of Corona was $5! Also: bring Mexican pesos instead of US dollars - they go farther). Renting a van was A LOT easier than I anticipated. It made us very portable. Every day was a different adventure: many cenotes to explore (you HAVE to see and experience them!), Tulum ruins, natural parks, fishing trips, snorkeling, the WORKS. I have two Vegans in the family and there were TWO outstanding vegan restaurants within walking distance from the place: "Restaurau" and "Charlie's Vegan Tacos". And Charlie is a super cool dude. Each meal we had was a good as the next and there are SO many to choose from. There is a brick oven pizza place about 150 steps away (where my kids hit three different times late!). The concrete deck is about 45 steps to the water. Palapas and beach recliners are for US and us only to use. There is a beachfront bar next door! And boy do the stars fill the night sky. Amazing. Man, this was fun to write as I revisited Tulum and our awesome vacation.
It was a pleasure to have you and your lovely family, enjoy my villa. I am so happy to see how much fun you had and very happy that Luis continues to give my guests an excellent service after his long 18 years of service with me!
Thank you so much for your great review. i hope to see you back here again shortly.
Charming Rustic house in unbeatable location
The house was exactly as expected from the pictures- quite roomy and rustic Mexican style.
The backyard is literally the beach with private palapas and sunbeds for the property in an amazing location.
The owners and staff were great, super helpful. Recommend getting a chef in to cook breakfast for large parties.. Great food and awesome to start each day. We also has a few lunches made for us at the house.
House is quite breezy so tolerable without airconditioning if you're used to sleeping with just fans.
Overall great house, recommend it.
A wonderful property and a wonderful experience
I recently celebrated my 40th birthday party here, and our group (of ten) had an amazing time. The property owner Luu, who lives nearby, was a beautiful woman with a generous spirit. The house has a spectacular view, literally on the beach, and is a one of a kind, even in beautiful Tulum. The beds were comfortable, the house well out-fitted, and the whole experience was a 10 out of 10. Our entire group had an amazing experience. We can not wait to return.
As beautiful as the pictures
Really wonderful experience right on the beach. As other reviews say, the location, house and hosts are excellent.
