Villa Luminosa, invites you to enjoy sunrises and sunsets on a full privacy .

Villa Luminosa, invites you to enjoy sunrises and sunsets on a full privacy~~~~~There are no words in any language to express the experience. A truly amazing setting, Villa Luminosa faces south overlooking Tankah Bay and the reef – with views on a clear day of the Tulum ruins and beyond. You can enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and experience the serenity that comes from privacy, the lush gardens, the music of birds in the palm trees, and the soothing sound of the waves over the reef . Villa Luminosa’s unique location on Tankah Bay provides for an always gentle breeze with no strong west winds. Because Tankah Bay has its own reef that acts as a breaker, the bay is tranquil with only lap waves at shore making snorkeling unbelievable in the calm clear waters. Tropical fish, rays, and sea turtles are seen in the bay and coral heads. This is some of the safest, easiest, and best snorkeling on the bay. A walk along the coral and sand beach is perfect for exploring the tide pools and for shelling.**********************

As an added plus, there are three restaurants on the bay—all within walking distance. Villa Luminosa is an expansive tropical paradise where inside and outside become one—a beautifully designed and decorated beachfront home with all the amenities you need for a perfect vacation. The rooms are spacious and decorated in a modern Mexican motif. A wide palapa roof porch with jungle tree supports (each its own piece of mother natures wondrous art) traverses the entire front of the main floor overlooking the beautiful vegetation of the grounds, palm tree tops, pool, beach and bay beyond. Reforested Tzalam wood Adirondeck lounges and a long dining table with chairs (made by local craftsmen in Bacalar) allow maximum enjoyment of this wonderful shaded outdoor space.- Behind are two generous bedrooms and baths on each side of a central great room furnished Mexican Equipale furniture along with a flat screen TV and DVD player. The dining area of the great room is furnished with a handmade dining room table designed by a local Mexican Architect, The focal point of the great room and the fully equipped kitchen is a naturally sculptured jungle tree that extends from the floor, through the Ticul marble counter, to the ceiling. There is also an office area with WiFi available throughout the house. -One of the highest rooftops on the bay allows for viewing the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets over water, stargazing, sunbathing, or dining.************** The pool level features an open courtyard with a giant gathering table for 12, outdoor kitchen with refrigerator, gas grill, and two more expansive bedrooms and baths that open to the pool deck. The large pool and pool deck provide ample space for swimming, playing in the water, relaxing, sunbathing, and enjoying a drink on the built in pool bench. The deck offers shade for those who prefer to be out of the sun.

Very Good

“Laid back.”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2013

Beautiful view. Easy beach entry into the bay. Nice pool and two large covered verandahs. Comfortable and quiet. Super staff in Elyssia and Francisco.

“Too short a stay in this wonderful house”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2012

This was the perfect house for 4 couples and a fantastic location on Tankah Bay - very private as it's the last house on the far end of the bay. Francisco and Alicia were wonderful and took great pains to clean up after us. We were amazed that they even took washed our dirty dishes (honestly, we almost felt bad about that...almost!). The beach is beautiful right even in front of the house. It's a little too rocky to enter the water for snorkeling right there but easy to walk down the beach a bit for better access. We snorkeled in the bay and in Manatee Cenote and loved them both, plus tide-pooling is amazing. I would come back to this house in a heartbeat and I will definitely stay longer next time.

“Villa Luminosa”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2012

Big house with a lot of open area. 4 floors with the caretakers on the botton floor. Each bedroom was spacious and had its own bathroom. the snorkeling was great but it was a little tough to get over the rocks.

“Villa Luminosa - Feb 25 through Mar 3, 2012”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2012

What a wonderful vacation for our family (eight adults)! It was absolutely perfect for all of us. The Villa offered privacy and also plenty of areas to be together and enjoy ourselves. It was a pleasure meeting Fransisco and Alicia. They provided excellent service! The management company was very attentive and made sure our trip was stress-free. We definitely want to make this trip again. You just cannot beat the weather, location, staff, scenery, service and amenities at Villa Luminosa!

“We love Villa Luminosa”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2012

This was our 2nd time at Villa Luminosa. Each time 2 families with young kids (ages 4, 4, 6, 7) rented the villa. It is a big open concept villa with spectacular views. Alicia and Poncho, who work as the maid and chef, are outstanding - the guacamole is heavenly. The beach in front of the house isn't great for swimming but the beautiful beaches of Tulum areannoy a 5 minute drive away. Having your own pool is dreamy and each time we've been there, the kid's swimming skills develop significantly. I would go back in a heartbeat!

“Christmas Vacation 2011”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

We had a fabulous time. Fransisco and Alicia were awesome...and cooked better than the restaurants did! The house was terrific, the location awesome. We saw lion fish, stingrays, tons of coral...snorkeling right outside the house. Planning things to do outside the house in Tulum and La Isla Mujeres was easy and affordable. Gudelio, our guide, was fantastic. We will definitely be back.

“Excellent Stay!”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2011

We had a fabulous time at Villa Luminosa. The location and condition of the villa surpassed our expectations. Francisco and Alicia are amazing and made our stay even more enjoyable! The meals were delicious and the house was constantly spotless. They were so welcoming and kind and ready to help us with whatever. We would absolutely return to this exact spot, and hope that we get to!!

“Villa Luminosa”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2011

Overall we loved the house. Francisco and Alicia were amazing and very very helpful and cooked great meals. The property manager only showed up once and that was on the 2nd day when no one was there. I am not sure what he really does at all? We asked him a question and didnt really get an answer. It would have been nice to see his face at least once. The house was gorgeous and like I said before, Francisco and Alicia were awesome and much more helpful than the manager....

“reality check”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2011

Reviewed 10 Jan 2011

House was great. Right on the beach but bring your water shoes. views from house were amazing. The caretakers were great as well; there if you needed them otherwise out of sight. Very relaxing and private vacation spot. Tulum is 5 min drive away.
