The two sides of the house are mirror images of one another yet totally separate. Both have comfortable furnishings, a nice open floor plan and direct access to the beach.
Three bedrooms and three bathrooms in each house makes Villas Gemelas perfect for larger groups. A large kitchen overlooks the dining area, living room, rear patio and sandy backyard. Both houses have furnished roof top terraces and exterior ground level patios. The sandy beach front side of the villa is great for tanning with plenty of fine sand and a palapa style shade umbrella for enjoying the view without the burn. The sandy beach provides an above average surf entry to the Caribbean and is mostly sand. The outer reef at Tankah Bay helps minimize the surf making the bay good for snorkeling. Casa Cenote restaurant and Manatee cenote are just down the street for drinks, lunch, dinner and a refreshing dip or snorkel in the cenote.
Tankah Bay is quiet and private with two charming restaurant/bars a short walk down the road. The area is well known for great scuba diving and snorkeling. In Tankah try Lucky Fish Diving at the Tankah Inn for good daily reef diving and Scuba instruction.
Not too far away is the the Pueblo of Tulum, approximately 10 minutes south of Tankah Tres, with plenty of local Maya/Mexican flavor, restaurants, shops, market place and a healthy dose of European influence mixed in. The historic Tulum Ruins are a must see if you haven't already. It's the only major Maya archaeological site on the Caribbean that's easily accessible. 20 minutes drive north is the seaside town of Akumal with a great beach and interesting restaurants and stores. And about 50 minutes north is the major tourist town of Playa del Carmen with everything under the sun.
