The studio apartment is located on the top of the Garcia house in the center of Tulum. Front patio is spacious and there is a cozy private back patio for enjoying a cup of coffee. See activities in the neighborhood from your rooftop vantage.

The space

The studio apartment features a large shower and a kitchenette if you feel like cooking. Open the windows and let the breeze blow through. It seems being up high gives more access to the moving air and the space is delightfully ventilated by the constant breeze.

Guest access

The entire upstairs is dedicated to the enjoyment of the guests.

Interaction with guests

The Garcia family speaks only a little English but you could practice your Spanish with them.

Other things to note

The Garcia family operates a small neighborhood restaurant serving appetizers 5 nights a week. Enjoy the local cuisine a la carte. Soft drinks are also available. Chicken soup on Saturdays.

The perfect apartment for our stay. We were fortunate to meet Dixie who was very welcoming. Her place feels like every little detail has been thought about. We felt entirely at home throughout our stay. The location is perfect, and the family beneath were warm friendly and attentive. They sorted bikes for us and fresh water. We ate in the little restaurant one Erving and it was amongst the best Mexican food I've ever had.

The room is really nice and clean. Everything was in great condition and works well. A bit hard to find so keep a picture of the street with you when you go.

My friend and I really enjoyed staying Dixie's place!!! It is clean, cozy, big enough for two, well equipped kitchen, it has everything we needed. AC, WIFI and hot water shower work well, close to the cente of town. Plus the Garcia family is very kind and sweet. I don't speak Spanish at all, but they always tried to communicate with me. (Lecita even happend to find me and took me the house when I got lost around the house....) They run the restaurant downstairs and everything they cook is so yummy~~. We love everything we ate there. And the lady, Dixie, she is very kind and helpful, too. before our arriving, she answered our questions accurately, took care of our requests. We really appreciate it. I would love to stay at this place next time I visit Tulum too!!

The Garcia family are a very kind, friendly and helpful hosting family! Arriving to Mexico and Tulum was a cultural shock so having such a hosting family and clean apartment was very, very nice! I definitely recommend the place - perfect location, perfect people, absolutely clean, having all you need, everything as described. Even despite the language barrier, we were able to communicate because The Garcia family try really hard (the husband speaks English btw so absolutely perfect!!).

Great little place to base yourself in Tulum. Basic but has everything you need. The Garcia family that live downstairs are fantastic and the little restaurant they run sells some of the best home cooked Mexican we've eaten!

We loved Dixie's home in Tulum. It is very nice, clean and quiet. The kitchen is perfect too, all you need! It was a great getaway for my girlfriend and I and Tulum is amazing as well!

I'm a woman of "a certain age" with an irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit. After building this apartment for myself and my granddaughters to enjoy, I found they wouldn't stay there unless I was there, too. So, I decided to add a little kitchenette and offer it on airbnb for g…
