“Tierra” at Avalon, Tulum is a charming ground floor 2-bedroom apartment with spacious open plan kitchen / lounge / diner, bathroom, shared gardens and pool. Designed with comfort in mind, it has ceiling fans, large windows and A/C in case you need it.

The space

Located in magical Tulum on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Avalon was designed and created with love as a peaceful haven amongst the trees; a comfortable home-away-from-home in which to relax, recharge and nourish the spirit. Conceived of and built by the owner in 2012, the apartments are set in the same grounds as her home, and include a shared pool area. The grounds are gated, walled-in and secure, and the buildings are nestled among the original jungle trees and wildlife.

Situated in the popular new La Veleta residential area on the south side of Tulum pueblo, it is a unique and beautiful self-catering rental option consisting of three comfortable apartments in one building; two 2-double-bedroom apartments with garden and open plan living space, and one loft studio with private roof terrace.

A short walk, bike ride or drive from the centre of Tulum pueblo, Avalon is a wonderful option for those seeking peace and tranquility. It is far enough away from the hubbub of town to relax and enjoy the jungle, but close enough for convenience, and a great base from which to explore all the area has to offer: incredible wildlife, fascinating archeological sites, pristine Caribbean beaches, breathtaking cenotes and caverns, lush jungle and peaceful lagoons, to name but a few ideas...

There are many nice restaurants and bars a short distance away, and a fully equipped kitchen / diner is provided in each apartment for home dining (or kitchenette in the case of the loft studio).

Natural therapies / treatments, yoga classes, massage, etc. can be arranged on or off site, and eco-tours happily recommended and arranged.

Having had the privilege to call Tulum home for around twelve years, the owner is happy to share her local knowledge, contacts and tips. She will be pleased to try to accommodate any special requests you may have in order to make your stay as wonderfully memorable as possible.

Please note that this property is not suitable for party-seekers and there is a reason we don't provide TVs... We lovingly suggest you sit instead in front of one of our enormous jungle-facing windows or under one of our beautiful trees if you wish to unwind at home. Avalon is about helping you to reconnect, rather than to disconnect! :) We also require that, as our guest, you comply with some simple house rules to help us minimise our environmental impact.

Cath is an excellent friend host, and lives next door so is always around to help. We stayed here with my young family and it was perfect. We got a taxi to the beach most days c.$120 each way and there are plenty of amazing food spots 5mins walk from the house. This isn't a resort 5 star hotel, if you want that you should look elsewhere. If you want a peaceful spot that has been built sympathetically to the surroundings and a focus on environmental impact then this is great. Two nice large bed rooms and Aircon. Nice pool area, feels like you are in the jungle.

We were two couples traveling together and ended up in Tulum for one week. Caths place was just perfect. It's super clean, nice minimalistic interior and state of the art equipment. The communication with Cath was a pleasure: she gave us so many tips of things to do/eat in and around tulum. If we ever come back we would definitely stay in Caths place again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avalon in Tulum. Cath was a superb host who was so thoughtful and helpful with everything from recommendations to questions about the apartment. The apartment was clean with all basic necessities we could need. They even cleaned halfway through the week for us! We were a family if 5(myself, husband, 4 yr old,baby,and mother). Cath even provided at baby cot and set it up prior to our arrival! The grounds of Avalon are stunning and peaceful(despite the surrounding development ). The pool was perfect for dipping in and playing with the kids between excursions. Cath has created an oasis amongst the changing landscape of Tulum. If you want an experience that feels genuine and unique then look no further. Cath's place was perfect for us for this reason and allowed us to explore all the area has to offer. We have so much love and appreciation for this space, Tulum and Cath.

After a memorable journey through Mexico, Cath's place was our last stop before traveling back home. Before we ever set foot in Tulum, Cath was communicating with us to set up transportation to and from Cancun airport. She made the trip effortless and greeted us at the gate to Avalon upon our arrival. She provided us with bicycles for short trips into town and sat down to explain the layout of city... complete with a map, points of interest, best places to eat, and suggestions on how to best absorb all that Tulum and the surrounding area had to offer. Avalon was very clean and comfortable and had everything a person needs to relax and wind down. However, the best feature of Avalon is Cath herself. She made our Tulum experience a great ending to a great adventure.

This is our second time staying in Cath's lovely apartment. Cath is very kind and extremely helpful. The apartment is equipped with everything you might need. The beds are comfortable, sheets and towels are super soft and there are plenty of them! The apartment fit our family of 4 perfectly. The location is a good jumping point to area beaches, cenotes and town. I highly recommend this rental and Cath. We hope to be back again soon.

I find it hard to fit into boxes! :)

Originally from Wales, I have been blessed to call Tulum my home for twelve years, and more recently to have designed and created Avalon: my dream home and three self-contained self-catering apartments with shared pool area, nestled amongst the trees and amazing local wildlife. I put my heart and soul into the project, and a lot of thought into the details, and am now delighted to be able to share them with lovely people like you, so that you can appreciate the magic of Tulum too! It's an ideal place for those who want to reconnect with themselves and with nature, and a wonderful base for exploring the marvels that Tulum has to offer. I'll be happy to share my local knowledge and contacts with you to ensure you have a wonderful holiday to remember!
