The space

STONE TREE TULUM is the first Vacation Rental in Tulum and is located in the original Maya neighborhood. Be local or tourist as you like in this culturally rich and friendly place. The high stone walls surrounding the property create a very safe and private garden. 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 from the main bus terminal, bike rentals and Taxi's. Ten blocks from the house is a lovely bike path leading to the Tulum beaches. It is a twenty-minute bike ride to reach them.

STONE TREE has two houses on the property; a MAIN HOUSE and a COTTAGE. The houses may be rented separately or the entire property for larger groups. If both houses are rented, a maximum of 14 people can be accommodated. (Refer to the other STONE TREE TULUM LISTINGS on AIRBNB ).

The houses are stone-built. The windows, doors and most furnishings are hand-crafted by local Maya craftsmen. All windows and doors on both houses are screened so mosquito nets are not needed. The thick stone walls, many large windows, and high ceilings with fans in every room provide excellent ventilation. All bedrooms and each cottage studio have air conditioning. It is rarely needed or used.

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.
