Casa Caribena

Tankah Bay, Tankah Bay, Mexico


  • A Private Getaway Marked by the Untouched Beauty of Caribbean

    Fortunately for those of us, who are looking for peace, quiet and natural beauty there are still beautiful bays of the Mexican Caribbean that have not become victims of their own success.

    Tankah Bay is one such place. Here you can still marvel at the abundant growth of coral reefs that haven’t endure any damage, and dive near the freshwater cenotes that the Mayan Riviera is well-known for. No wonder this place has been a best-kept secret and the home to some of the Caribbean’s most private villas, including Casa Caribeña.

    Privacy offerd at Casa Caribeña is truly noteworthy

    Forget about tall stone gates that separate you from the traveling crowds and overly noisy neighbors! While you are staying at Casa Caribeña there will not be any buildings and tourist groups distracting you from enjoying the stunning views of the lush tropical greenery of the Mexican Riviera Jungle and the pristine blue Caribbean waters.

    The views are one thing, the interior just as stunning

    This amazing 6 – bedroom villa has been designed for families’ and friends’ vacations, as it can comfortably host from 6 to 14 people.

    For example, the main living room area, located on the first level of Casa Caribeña serves as a great place for everyone to hangout. With satellite TV, wireless internet connection and pre-paid phones, your entertainment is well-taken care of, as you don’t have to worry about missing your favorite US shows or not being able to chat with your friends back home.

    There is also a second living room and a gaming room situated on the upper level, which is very convenient if you are travelling with kids. While they are watching their movies or playing upstairs, dads can claim the couch downstairs, ‘arm’ themselves with ice-cold Coronas and watch sports.

    Lots of great places to bond and hang out at the villa

    You will surely appreciate the Tiki wet bar located just off the living room that has been created for great conversations over a glass of wine or a Frozen Margarita.

    Another family bonding place is without doubt the main dining room area, situated on the ocean front patio. In the evening it is lovely to dine here, while admiring the beauty of Tankah bay and enjoying the refreshing breeze from the ocean.

    And the best part is that you don’t even have to worry about cooking (unless you want to), because it is taken care of by the resident house cook at no additional cost.  Guests can use both the kitchen and also a mini-bar located on the second floor.

    The bedrooms of the house are also worth mentioning, as almost all rooms feature an en-suite bathroom and a private terrace. So, depending on your choice, you will have the possibility of waking up with the ocean as a background or admire the breathtaking sunsets over the Yucatan Jungle.

    The surrounding outdoor features of Casa Caribeña are equally astounding. The ground level pool and elevated rooftop pool are perfect for an early morning swim or relaxing on the lounge chairs and catching up on your sunbathing time. A walk towards the ocean will lead you to a thatch-covered patio – ideal for a sweet afternoon siesta.

    And if you take the flight of stairs to the roof top dipping pool that seats 12 people with 360 degree views of the Caribbean and full roof top living room that seats 14 people, with bar and bathroom.

    Recreation and pampering are guaranteed

    Casa Caribeña offers you a myriad of secluded luxuries, like a healing massage from a Mayan Shaman and private access to snorkeling spots in front of your house, which are not easy to find.

    So make a decision to turn this vacation into the most relaxing, rejuvenating and a reinvigorating experience EVER by spending a week or two at Casa Caribeña.
