Villa Mariposa Tankah

Tankah Bay – Tulum

Villa Mariposa – Eco Chic Living in Tulum on Tankah Beach.

Beach House

4 Beds

Sleeps 8



Nothing says “Caribbean vacation” more than a stunning ocean view right outside your window, framed by slender palm trees and finished with a palapa-thatched roof.

Villa Mariposa has it all – a superb location on Tankah Bay, unbeatable views of the sparkling waters of the Caribbean and an impressive cathedral palapa ceiling that towers over the uniquely-shaped circular living room.

Stepping inside the villa you will find a large open-floor living space. Calling it “grand” would be an underestimation.

Just imagine a dramatic two-story high living space with expansive panoramic glass doors running along the entire perimeter of the ocean side wall. Higher up, the second-floor interior balcony gives you a full view of the living room that, with its large semi-circular sofa and two coffee tables, looks like a smiley face making you smile back.

A deluxe fully-equipped kitchen with silky-smooth black granite countertops is located just off the living room. This is very convenient, as you always want to have your crispy chips and salsa and chilled ‘cervezas’ close by

And for serving more elaborate meals, Villa Mariposa offers you two options: a more formal indoor dining room that sits 6 people and a cozy outdoor dining area (both facing the calm turquoise waters of Tankah Bay).

On the opposite side of the living room, you will find the first Master suite with a king-size bed and private access to the patio. The uniqueness of this master bedroom lies in its en-suite bathroom. Not only does the shower feature a window that faces the ocean, but it is also connected through French doors with a protected outside shower. So when you are done swimming and sunbathing, you can quickly hop into the shower without having to walk through the house.

The second floor of the beautiful Villa Mariposa hosts two more bedrooms: a guest bedroom, furnished with 2 canopied twin beds and the second Master bedroom, featuring a comfortable king-size bed. Both bedrooms come with charming en-suite bathrooms, a private furnished palapa-covered deck and ample closet space (so you can take as many new summer outfits as you like).

From the second-level a wide stairway leads to the rooftop observation deck of Villa Mariposa. This is a great spot to enjoy the elevated views of the Tankah Bay and the Jungle, as well as watching pelicans dive, searching for fish.

Other ‘must-try’ activities when staying in this amazing vacation villa include relaxing in one of the hammocks or lounge chairs under the beach palapa, swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in the shallow and protected waters of Tankah Bay or organizing a cookout party for your family and friends (especially since the garden side of the house boasts a palapa-covered outdoor kitchen with a gas barbecue).

For other delicious, sizzling and zesty specialties of Mexican cuisine, check out the two nearby restaurants – Casa Cenote (serving lunch and dinner) and the  restaurant of the Blue Sky Hotel (serving breakfast and dinner). More dining, shopping, beachcombing and sightseeing options await you at Pueblo of Tulum – 10 minutes south, Akumal located 20 minutes north from Tankah Bay and Playa del Carmen – 40 minutes north.

The Bottom line is: Villa Mariposa has so much to offer that you really don’t want to let this opportunity pass you by! So hurry and book this little slice of very serene and tropical paradise.
