The high stone walls surrounding the property create a very safe and private garden with a pool to return to after excursions. The pool has a fountain and built in seating. The location is central yet secluded. It is one block from where the jungle begins, separating the town from the beaches. If you rent a car, it is a five to seven minute drive to the Beaches and the Tulum Ruins. On street parking is close to the entrance door to the property. Bank ATM restaurants, bars, cultural center, town plaza and markets are a short walk from the house. It is three blocks to the main bus terminal, bike rentals and Taxi's.

STONE TREE has been a site for weddings, family reunions, honeymoons and single travelers. It has always been a great pleasure of me when I am in Tulum to meet the guests. They come from all walks of life and ages and from all over the world; backpackers, doctors, farmers, filmmakers, divers, anthropologists, teachers, cooks. It has been a great pleasure for me when I am there to meet such interesting and wonderful folks.
I am prompt in answering emails and phone calls if guests have any particular questions before or during their stay. My manager, Soco will be there for you if and when you need her assistance.

Additional Location Information
The location is central yet secluded. It is one block from where the jungle begins, separating the town from the beaches and three blocks from the main bus terminal, bike rentals, taxis, shops, restaurants, cultural center and main town plaza. It is ten blocks to a lovely bike path leading to the beaches, a twenty minute bike ride or a five to seven minute drive by car to the Beaches and to the Tulum Ruins. On street parking is close to the entrance door to the property. If you do not rent a car, it is three blocks to a bank ATM, shops, restaurants, bars, cultural center, town plaza and market. It is a very convenient location for walking.
I highly recommend walking about town in the evenings. I love the neighborhood. Where else can you go where you might pad outside the walls and see an elephant and camel being led down the road announcing the circus has come to town? There are all sorts of street venders selling from their tri-cicletas. You could never leave the neighborhood and have the freshest of produce, honey, spices, etc...or walk a few blocks to the Cultural Center and find a world famous opera singer performing in the outdoor theater at no charge. Or you want a beer, some ice, chips, walk across the street to the little in-house store to get them and head for the beach!
