Carolyn and Denis invite to you share their home in Tulum. Luna Caribe is our only property and our tropical home. When you rent from us, you are renting from the owners--not an agency or someone who has multiple properties.
For the past twelve years, we have loved living here for three months during winter and spring and have enjoyed having guests from many countries. When you are here, you will have the exclusive use of the entire home--interiors and spacious private terraces. Our wonderful manager is nearby and happy to help if you need any kind of assistance. Please check the HomeAway/VRBO reservation form to see if we have your travel dates available.
3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 5 private terraces total 3347 sq. ft. of private outdoor and interior space. This is the only 3 bedroom unit for rent in our complex, and with the five private outdoor balconies and terraces, it is by far the largest condo. We have been told that it is larger than other three-bedroom condos in the area.
Many of our guests comment on the privacy of our home since we own the entire top floor and rooftop garden of the building. This is an unusual feature and not shared with other units. Large outdoor spaces are a big plus with no-one walking past your door or windows.
HomeAway, like most holiday websites, do charge a booking fee but we hope to save you money with:
-- No cleaning charge (usually $75 to $100 U.S. at other rentals)
--No damage deposit because of the care from past guests. We do ask that guests treat our home with respect. Ideal for families and responsible sharing couples. 24/7 security. Not suitable for party groups or events like weddings.
--Free bikes for your use (two). More can be rented nearby.
--Free wireless internet
--Free Netflix using our account. Smart LG T.V.
--Free off-street parking with security.
Twelve Years in Tulum:
We have had a home in Tulum for twelve years. Our first home (now sold) was in the town which could be noisy and we like being closer to the beaches. We will be happy to pass on our 'local knowledge' We like assisting guests to experience a memorable vacation in Tulum.
This beautiful condo is our own special home in Tulum --not just a rental property or bare-bones timeshare. We spend about three months each year in the home and maintain it in "as new condition".
Pay with the protection and points your credit card gives through HomeAway Payments.
Book with us for personal assistance with your vacation. We recently have taken early retirement from careers in teaching and live on Vancouver Island, Canada. Carolyn is a professional artist and Denis enjoys woodworking. We have lived and worked in Canada, England, Australia, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico. After much thought and exploring many areas of Mexico, we have chosen Tulum as our "place in the sun".
Very Large and Private:
Enjoy the fantastic space and privacy of this penthouse condo in the eco-development of Aldea Zama. You have the ENTIRE THIRD FLOOR of the building plus the entire PRIVATE ROOFTOP of the building giving spectacular views over the jungle canopy. Several terraces and private rooftop with jacuzzi. 3347 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor living space only for your use.
Full air-con and screens.
Although we have full air-con, we live outside as much as inside and enjoy the views and breezes with great cross-ventilation not found in other units.
Native hardwood furniture, granite counter tops, Bosch quality oven and cook-top, indoor and outdoor dining (tables for 6 and 8), Incredible pool winds through trees preserved by the builder. We replaced the original compact stacked washer and dryer with full-sized units.
We enjoy living here for much of the winter and have made several upgrades. New LG smart T.V.makes getting Netflix really easy using our free account and it has a fantastic picture also. New living room furniture, New inverter air conditioners in all rooms, new tables on our private rooftop. New patio chairs, new art --plus we completed many small projects to keep our home in top condition.
Eleven minutes by bike to the nearest beach on a dedicated safe paved bike path. Over 50 places to eat on the beach or in the town of Tulum--a three-minute drive to the nearest beach or the town.
Two-minute drive or taxi to a great new superstore that rivals anything in Playa.
Five Private Outdoor Living Spaces:
With two bedroom balconies, two large terraces off of the master bedroom and living room, and the entire roof-top of the building as your own space to relax, sunbath in privacy, or to enjoy a drink, you will live outside as much as inside--and all very secure. No-one walking past your entry door or windows on the way to the pool or to another unit.
Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms.
Each of the three bedrooms is large and each has its own private balcony or terrace as well as a full bathroom with glass-enclosed showers. Plush Serta beds (2 queens and 2 individual) ensure a comfortable night. Large sliding doors let in cooling breezes during quiet evenings. Each room has air/con--but rarely needed. We find the overhead fans usually adequate. Lots of storage in many closets and cabinets. We have two pop-up cribs for small children and a baby back carrier.
Very complete kitchen:
Lovely kitchen with quality appliances and beautiful granite countertops. Bosch cooktop and oven. Because we live here for several months in the year, you will find Luna Caribe unusually complete --much like your own home. We love to cook at "home" and you will find baking and cooking basics in the kitchen.
The pool and buildings are a very special design. The builders have preserved trees throughout the development and around the pool. While being at the beach is truly wonderful, we enjoy coming home, washing off in the outdoor shower and having a dip in the fresh water of the pool.
This is a true tropical paradise! Lots of room for two, four or six guests. Breakfast on the deck as the sun rises and wine on the terrace as the sun sets. The refreshing roof-top jacuzzi and garden are great for kids or adults to cool off. We had a wonderful Jan to March here. Our families with grandkids joined us for Spring Break. We will be back for February and March of next winter.
The penthouse is very private and secure. We sleep with all the glass terrace doors (screened) open at night to enjoy the breezes in the bedrooms and the living room.
Off-street parking with 24/7 security and controlled entry to the condo project. Quiet and safe location--near beaches and the waterfront and town restaurants (which are half the price of the beach restaurants.)
At your treetop level, you will see many birds: purple grackles, orioles, flycatchers, parrots, swallows and this year we saw a toucan!
Most of the unique furniture is custom made by Mayan craftsmen using local renewable hardwoods. Outdoor dining at the table for eight in the covered terrace is lovely. There is an indoor dining table for six as well. We have two new dining tables on the rooftop garden area. Carolyn is a professional artist and you will enjoy the original paintings and decor by her throughout the bright and airy rooms.
Remember--no cleaning charge, and because of the care from past responsible guests, we no longer take a damage deposit. Free bikes, free Netflix, and free internet.
