Family-run condo-style villas in hip Tulum, with a pool, tropical gardens and free bicycles
Built from the ground up by a globetrotting Argentine/Belgian couple, this ten-condo hideaway represents a labor of love, from the spacious, artfully decorated condos to the shady pool area with its hammocks. Eco-minded guests will also appreciate such little touches as organic honey soap, fluffy bathrobes and free loaner bicycles, perfect for getting around this casual beach town. The units range from penthouse studios to two-bedroom condo apartments, and each is named for a famous artist. Expect light-filled white rooms decorated with vibrant throw cushions and colorful artworks; some condos come with perks like fully equipped kitchens and outdoor soaking tubs. While the town of Tulum isn’t a white-sand-palm-tree dream, like the more famous beach zone, its restaurant and nightlife scene is fun, and the more laid-back hotel zone is just a short drive or peddle away.
In the Area
Head for the tranquil Tulum beachfront, where the beautiful people congregate and it’s always either yoga time or happy hour. Dine at one of the town’s many hip but casual joints, like Casa Banana where they fire up the Argentine-style grill each night to serve delicious snacks like housemade chorizo and fresh-caught fish, all in the shade of trees hung with lanterns. Join the line for a table at Hartwood, a perpetually mobbed alfresco hot spot run by a former New York chef where the menu changes daily and the food is cooked over an open fire. La Vita e Bella offers a true sand-between-the-toes dining experience, and it offers guests of Villa Geminis a discount. Closer to home, Sale e Pepe, in Tulum town, is known for its pizzas and pastas and generally convivial vibe. Don't miss a visit to the Mayan ruins, the remains of an ancient city, set fetchingly on a cliff overlooking a curve of azure sea.
