We, a family of 6 (parents and adult children) stayed 5 nights in this beautiful house in the middle of nature. The house as such provides everything you need, good kitchen, enough space and beds. We enjoyed the silence and calm, as there are no neighbors or such. It is a very good option for people who want to avoid noisy, touristy Tulum with its masses of people and cars, especcially on the beach road. You should know that you rent a house in the mexican forest, meaning that there are insects and other animals. Because of heavy rain, we had to struggle with very impressive ant invasions twice (as to Leonarda this only happens 2-3 times a year, you are safe to book for this year ;). Another, bigger problem was, that there was no water, or only cold water quite too often (on 2nd, 3rd and 4th day, always a couple of hours). Meaning no toilet, no shower, no kitchen. Not that nice with 6 people in the morning or coming home from beach. As Leonarda works all day, the problems could not be resolved quickly. Still, Leonarda and her son are the most friendly people and do all their best to resolve problems. We can also say, that their communication in problem-solving-discussions is very good ;) They offered compensation and were very sorry for the quite many problems we had with the house. So, if you seek for tranquile, calm, relaxing holidays within jungle, in reasoable distance to noisy and very touristy Tulum, and can accept some inconveniences, this is your house!

We had everything we need. It is a bit far from Tulum but if you have a car is no problem. The area was in the middle of nature, and we enjoyed this a lot. Great place

The house and host far exceeded our expectations. The home was exquisite with hand made doors and tables, lamps and windows. I felt like I had wandered into an art gallery and been invited to stay. Leonarda was kind and friendly throughout our stay and helpful with local knowledge about things to see and do. The distance to the ruins at Muyil and the lagoons made this an excellent spot to stay for folks looking to experience the beauty of the area without having to engage in the touristic frenzy of tulum.

We stayed at Casa Margherita for 4 nights this January ( two families with children). The owners met us in Tulum and took us to the house - ~20 minutes away. It was a wonderful experience. Description of the home is accurate . The house is spotless and very spacious to hold a large group. Kitchen is very biff & well stocked. Owners provided bottled water during our stay. The house is nestled in the middle of woods, minutes from the highway close to a beautiful lake. After day long activities outside, we were eager to get back to the house for peace & quiet. The owners went out of the way to make our stay very comfortable. We will recommend Casa Margherita to everyone looking for a home stay during vacation . We look forward to going back to this house in our next visit. Just a small note: Access road to the house is not paved. We did not have any issues driving (rented a midsize car and SUV).

Sehr freundlicher Empfang. Leonarda ist außerordentlich hilfsbereit und gibt auch kleine mexikanische Koch-Nachhilfe. Gemeinsam haben wir Tortillas gemacht oder auch zum ersten Mal Kaktus probiert. Das Haus ist im letzten Stück über kleine Trampelpfade mit dem Auto zu erreichen, wunderschön, zwar etwas dunkel, aber dadurch auch angenehm kühl. Es liegt wirklich mitten im Dschungel und ist ohne Telefon- oder Internetempfang eine Perle für alle, die es sehr ruhig mögen und den Geräuschen des Dschungels lauschen möchten.

I am a therapist who worked in the healing arts for over 20 years. When I arrived in Tulum many years ago it reminded me of my spiritual home, as I had experienced in India during the 80's. I knew I could stay here and build a home. So I did.
