Casa de los Pelicanos is situated on the world’s most beautiful beach in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve and truly has one of the most unique locations in the world. The property is located on a peninsula with a beautiful white sand beach where each step sinks to your ankles in the softest sand ever experienced just a few steps off the oceanfront deck. Explore the enchanting lagoon on the opposite side with an ancient Mayan "lighthouse" just offshore. Relax under our beach palapa or explore the waters of the Caribbean in one of our three kayaks. Read a book, play in the surf, snorkel, kayak, fish, scuba dive, explore ruins, visit cenotes..., go shopping, kite board; the recreational opportunities are endless and Casa de los Pelicanos has it all. Watch the sun rise over the Caribbean and set over the lagoon from any of the 3 master suites. Few places on earth have views of beautiful over-water sunrises and sunsets that can be viewed from our terrace and viewing deck. Casa de los Pelicanos is the perfect example of space, luxury and privacy. Relax and let our hosts, Chucho and Chari pamper you and serve delicious dishes for you.
This 5000 square foot beachfront home, located just 6 KM south of the Tulum hotel zone in the Sian Ka'an Reserve, has a large open plan living and dining area with fabulous ocean views and wonderful outdoor dining or breakfasting areas overlooking the crystal clear waters and white sand beaches of the Caribbean. Much of the furniture in the house is handmade by a local craftsman and is truly unique. The modern kitchen is fully equipped with all of the modern conveniences and includes a unique coffee area to get you started for the day and a bar area for making your favorite cocktails. There is even a purpose built games area with a selection of popular board games for you to play.
All three master suites feature King sized beds, en-suite bathrooms, and have wonderful views over the ocean to the east and the lagoon to the west of the property. The three master bedrooms are spacious and two of them have a separate daybed and enough space to fit an additional bed if needed. Go out onto the huge upstairs terrace for incredible sunrises and sunsets, and for some absolutely pristine star gazing due to the lack of artificial light in the area. Outside there is fenced and gated off-street parking, and with the nearest neighbors located hundreds of meters away, you truly will feel that you are away from it all! However, don’t worry about being isolated as there are fabulous restaurants and bars in the Tulum Hotel Zone only 3 ½ miles (6 km) north of Casa de los Pelicanos, and the town of Tulum with all of its amenities is located only 9 miles (13 km) from the house.

We stayed 7 days in Casa de los Pelicanos in March 2014. Absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend this home to anyone.
We found this place on the internet and all the reviews looked good so we went ahead and booked it. We usually stay in hotels so this was our first time to stay in a private villa and rent directly from the owner. Needless to say, it was awesome. We had high expectations and this exceeded them.
The location is great, you are fairly close to Tulum, but far enough away to be away from it all. There are 6 kilometers of dirt road to get to the house and it's a bumpy road, so that stretch is about a 15 minute drive. But you are all by yourself. On a 'busy' day we might see 10 people total the entire day. Some days we would see two or three people walking on the beach the entire day. There aren't many places left where you can get that kind of peaceful seclusion. And the beach itself is fantastic, truly world class.
The house is very well decorated, very nice, very clean and makes you feel like you are staying in a really luxurious place. We are a family of eight and we had plenty of room. There are basically 3 master bedrooms and a bunk room with 4 beds in it. So this home would work well for 3 couples with one or two kids each as well.
The service was excellent as well. The owner was very responsive and very helpful. The housekeepers were very polite and made some really good meals.
There really wasn't any negative aspect to our stay. One of the best vacations our family has ever had. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautifully appointed, gorgeous!!

We stayed for a week on our honeymoon. The home is spectacular! Beautifully appointed, quality craftsmanship, gorgeous! To have a beach where we only saw two people walking by one day - was heaven!! The water is warm and wonderful for swimming. I cannot say enough good things about this property - we absolutely loved it! The caretakers were very sweet... I highly recommend this property for anyone wishing to get away from it all in luxury!

You're thinking about about booking Pelicanos just based on the reviews and these beautiful pictures? Well imagine it's 100 times more amazing in real life! Everything you need for a vacation truly off the grid! Just returned from a 7 day stay with 5 adults and 1 child. Each suite is unique, private and has everything you could need including a/c for making those hot nights more bearable. The new seating area on the upper deck is perfect for happy hour and games while the fabulous Chucho & Chari prepare the best food of your life! We also really enjoyed a lot of time under the new palapa on the main floor deck when we needed a reprieve from the hot sun. We had all of our dinners prepared for us by Chucho & Chari and the only thing I regret is not having them prepare all of our meals! I don't know how I'll ever eat my own boring guacamole and pico de gallo now! They made it fresh with every dinner! The house was also kept completely spotless by Chucho & Chari and always with a smile. I would return to Pelicanos without hesitation and highly recommend it to any of my friends looking for a truly relaxing away-from-it-all get away.

Our stay was fantastic - the house was immaculately maintained, the service we received was great and the food they prepared for us was delicious. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to book a house "away from it all". However, if you are looking for activities outside the property, be prepared to drive on a dirt road for about 7 km until you make it to Tulum hotel zone and beyond.
Beautiful beach vacation

Our family had a wonderful time at Casa de los Pelicanos. The house is lovely, the caretakers took excellent care of us, and the setting is simply extraordinary. We loved the endless, empty beach, the birds, and the sunrises and sunsets.
Third stay at Pelicanos

Well, that should say it all I suppose. We love coming here. The house is on a beautiful stretch of isolated beach. It's well-maintained and well-equipped. The building staff is great: Chucho and Chari are great cooks and have a great attitude. Great place if you like a get-away-from-it-all kind of holiday.
Note, when we last visited, the road to Tulum was in its usual pretty bad shape (once a year or so the road is regraded and in decent shape for a couple of months)...making for a very bumpy/uncomfortable 6-mile (20-minute!) ride into Tulum...4WD highly recommended!

We have been twice to Pelicanos now and can't wait for the next trip. Pelicanos has it all! The kitchen is great for cooking, cocktails, or just hanging out. The TV is a nice add in the home as well. Wi Fi, Security System, and even aC if you need it. The caretakers are awesome cooks and do a magnificent job keeping every thing perfectly clean for you. If you need something in town and you don't want to go, they will go for you. The deserted beach is just want you need for the stress free days. Large Shade on the beach with multiple chairs. Kayaks that you can use in the ocean or lagoon. Pelicanos is also gated. Such a wonderful private destination, but yet so close to other things to do on the beach road, or back in town. You get the best sunrises and even sunsets from Pelicanos. Just go and be free and don't worry about anything. Experience the Sian Kaan and Tulum. You will not regret it.
