Share The Article

Sometimes, when you’re on vacation, you want a few more home comforts than a hotel room can deliver. For example, if you want to prepare your own meals, or if you’re staying for longer than a few days, private rentals can be a great option. Tulum has thousands of listings, in its beach and downtown areas, so to save you trawling through them all, here are 4 of the best private rentals in Tulum for you to choose from.

Designer Penthouse w/ Private Rooftop Pool | View of Mayan Ruins | Bike to Beach

From just over $300 per night, you can rent yourself this gorgeous penthouse in a gated development that sleeps up to 6 people. The 3 bedrooms each have expansive views over the Tulum jungle, and from the roof terrace – which has its own private pool – you can even spot Tulum’s Mayan Ruins in the distance. With the beach an easy 10-minute bike ride away, and Tulum’s downtown area within walking distance, this property offers the best of both worlds when it comes to location.

The penthouse’s decor is neutral with splashes of color and abstract art pieces to maintain interest. The sizeable master suite and a smart kitchenette share the rooftop terrace, which is a fantastic spot for chilling out in the evening, as well as being perfect for that all-important morning coffee.

Beautiful Tulum Villa; includes staff/chef, pool, privacy and stunning views

If you’re looking for roomy, this 4,000 sq ft Mediterranean-style beachfront villa, architect-designed by Ismael Diaz, offers traditional Mexican decor and beautiful tilework, as well as direct access to the beach and far-reaching vistas of the surrounding jungle.

Tulum Villa

This 4-bed 6-bath villa is perfect for larger family or group vacations, with plenty of space to spread out across the two family rooms, around the private back garden complete with a private pool and hammock station, or on the rooftop terrace. There are also staff available to help with cooking or laundry if required. At $500+ per night and sleeping up to 10, price-wise this is a very fair deal.

Modern apartment w/ WiFi, balcony views, partial AC & a shared pool/lush garden

If you’re looking for something suitable for a couple’s break, but still with plenty of amenities, this apartment in Tulum’s residential area of Aldea Zama should be on your shortlist. 

Aldea Zama apartment Tulum

At a little over 1,300 sq ft, this 2-bed 3-bath property offers plenty of space. The large open-plan living room is bright and airy, with a full kitchen, dining space, and comfy corner sofa for relaxing. There’s a private balcony and a communal pool set in lovely tropical gardens.

Downtown Tulum

Aldea Zama itself has a few stores, plus food and drinks options, but you’ll only be a short walk from downtown Tulum, where the majority of dining and entertainment spots can be found, including these great breakfast spots. For a little over $70 per night in the off-season, this property is a steal.
