We have been helping guests enjoy the area for seven years and will be happy to pass on our 'local knowledge' We like assisting guests to experience a memorable vacation in Tulum. We receive many kind comments about the home and our wonderful manager who will help you to have a great visit..
This beautiful condo is our own special home in Tulum. No booking fee, no damage deposit, no cleaning charge, we pay the taxes. Two bikes for your use and free wireless internet. Pay with the protection and points your credit card gives or by direct bank deposit, or by wire.
Book directly with the owner for personal assistance with your vacation. We recently have taken early retirement 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".
This is the only 3 bedroom, three bathroom unit for rent in our complex, and with the many private outdoor balconies and terraces is the largest condo.
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 totals 3347 sq. ft. of living space. Native hardwood furniture, granite counter tops, Bosch quality oven and cook top, indoor and outdoor dining (table for 8), Incredible pool winds though trees preserved by builder. Fantastic ocean breezes and air/con throughout. Fully screened. New full-sized washer and dryer.
.New for 2015: We now have good internet (as good as it gets in Mexico) and also satellite T.V. Enjoy Netflix as well if you have an HDMI connection to our HDMI cable or use our Chromecast device.
Two free bicycles. 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.
Quiet location outside the town but near the beaches and everything you may need. Two minutes to a great new grocery store 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.
This is a true tropical paradise! Lots of room for two, four or six guests. You will enjoy the privacy and generous space of having the complete third floor plus the huge private roof top of the building exclusively for your use. Breakfast on the deck as the sun rises and wine on the terrace as the sun sets. The refreshing roof top jacuzzi and garden is great for kids or adults to cool off. Our grandkids had a wonderful March holiday. We spent much of January-February here and will return in August.
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 night security and controlled entry to the condo project. Quiet and safe location but near beaches and the waterfront and town restaurants. Over fifty restaurants are only a three to ten minute drive away.
At your treetop level you will see many birds: purple grackles, orioles, flycatchers, parrots, swallows and this year we saw a tucan!
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 as well. You will also enjoy the original paintings and decor by Carolyn throughout the bright and airy rooms.
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 new 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.
Very complete kitchen:
Lovely kitchen with quality appliances and beautiful granite counter tops. Bosch cooktop and oven.
The pool and buildings are a very special design and it is probably the nicest project in Tulum. 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.
$500/week will hold your dates. Balance due 30 days before travel. Remember--no cleaning charge, we pay the taxes, and because of the care from past responsible guests, we no longer take a damage deposit.
Email or phone for more details. We look forward to helping you with your trip to beautiful Tulum.

My husband and two children aged 12 and 15 had the privilege of staying at Dennis and Carolyn's beautiful condo in June for 6 glorious days. There's not enough space to be able to write all the positive things about this accommodation from beautiful Mexican decor, lovely art done by Carolyn, the spaciousness of it, and ultra comfortable mattresses! The outdoor deck, private upper deck and the poolside were beautiful and quiet. We spent quite a bit of time in the pool instead of at the beach. Our kids loved this place We all felt quite sad when we had to leave but we were very grateful and happy that we were able to stay for the time that we did and experience all the beautiful activities ,people and surroundings in Tulum and area.
The house manager Gilbert was extremely kind and very helpful in suggesting local restaurants and activities as were Dennis and Carolyn ( Thanks for all your patience with all my emailing back-and-forth and endless questions that you answered in a very timely fashion)
I would not hesitate for a minute to suggest their home as a rental option For your trip to Tulum and hope to be up to stay again in the future
Thanks so much for your nice comments. We love sharing our home and introducing folks to beautiful Tulum. A special thank you for leaving the home so tidy and clean! A five star guest!

Me and my wife spent 10 days at Luna Caribe. The condo is huge, well appointed and fully equipped. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and even more. The booking and check-in were seamless. Denis, the owner, was very responsive and provided us with very detailed instructions. Since there were only two of us Denis and Carolyn gave us a discount.
On the day of arrival, we had a minor problem with aC and it was addressed immediately through the owners' caretaker, Gilbert.
The complex (Aldea Zama) is very clean, safe and has a warm homey feeling. The pool is a bit small but nice and very clean, OK for a morning swim.
There was construction going on in the complex next door but it did not bother us a bit.
We used a rented vehicle to get to the beach. If you don't want to rent there are two bicycles in the owner's locker on the small parking lot on the left side of the building.
We had a great time in aldea Zama and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Thanks Denis and Carolyn!
Thanks very much for your kind review. We enjoy sharing our home in beautiful Tulum with our guests and we would love to have you return.We understand the building nearby has never disturbed our guests and it should be finished by June 2013.
We spend several weeks here each year and love the beaches, the culture, the friendly people and the warm sunny days and quiet soft nights of Tulum. Thanks for staying at Luna Caribe--our special home.

We've been traveling to Tulum for years and this is the best place we've been yet! Very private and spacious with the whole top floor and rooftop. Three ample sized bedrooms all with ensuites made it very convenient. We loved the two patios and the pool was awesome. It was only a few minutes to the beach or town. Highly recommended!
