“Great for a family of four” Somehow we missed that this place is a duplex, but this was a definite plus in our eyes. Patty and alex and their young daughter live in the front unit and they showed us how everything worked, made sure we had what we needed and were helpful with advice and recommendations.
The kitchen is really well stocked and provides many things to make cooking easier. Under the sink area we found lots of plastic containers to store leftovers; there was foil and plastic wrap and some oils, spices and coffee filters. These are the little things that when away from home really made life easier. There was also one set of snorkeling equipment which was useful.
The two of us adults and our two children 11 and 15 were very comfortable here. Having a washing machine was essential with sweaty and wet clothes for four! The drying lines on the roof, accessible from the children's bedroom were easy to use, clothes dry quickly and you get a nice view from up there!
We were not planning on having a car the whole time we were here, but alex recommended it and we were glad we extended our car rental. Taxis are expensive as was bike rental for 4 people for 8 days. There are many places that are easier to get to in a car than by bike. There are many small stores, vegetable stands, restaurants and shops within walking distance.
We would highly recommend Francesca's place. The only things that would make it a bit better would be better ceiling fans (they move slowly)-- though alex did bring us a standing fan which helped. Also a screen in the front door would improve ventilation.
“Fantastic!” Beautiful home with ocean and jungle views within easy driving distance of all the things you go to the Tulum area to do. Very comfortable while very well appointed. Original, gorgeous artwork, great linens, well stocked kitchen and really comfortable beds - no complaints! There is so much in the area to do during the day - beaches, cenotes, bird watching, you name it. It's a lovely home to come back to at the end of a full day. Hope to go back.
“A lovely place for a family” This villa is spacious and on a really lovely bay. The bay is protected by a coral so there are no waves...great for little kids. The water is weedy but in front of the villa is a nice sandy area and great for swimming.
Not as fancy as some places but still clean and comfortable. My only complaint is the lack of tools etc in the kitchen. A really poor set up if you want to cook for yourself anything more then breakfast. Only 5 forks and 5 spoons for a place that can sleep eight is a bit strange. Also basic kitchen towels and soap etc were missing: had to buy those ourselves!
Everything else was nice. Private, comfy, airy and cool I would go back ( with my own chefs knife!)
