 Villa Tankah Bonita
4 bedroom beachfront villa for rent on Tankah Bay, Riviera Maya, Mexico
Mayan Riviera - Riviera Maya
for groups of up to a maximum of 10 people


This modern and well appointed villa is nestled on the beautiful shores of Tankah Bay in the Riviera Maya.  It is the perfect get-a-way location for anyone looking to spend some quality time commuting with nature while being spoiled with life's creature comforts.   This spacious, 4500 sq. ft. villa is a snorkelers delight, with a gorgeous Caribbean reef on one side and the fresh water Cenote Manatee right next door.  This truly is paradise found.


Tankah Tres is the name of the bay where the villa is located.  It is a tropical paradise where you will be away from it all, yet close enough to all the Riviera Maya has to offer so that you will not feel stranded in paradise.  The funky town of Tulum with its' numerous restaurants, shops, beaches and famous Mayan Ruins is a short 10 - 15 minute drive to the south.  Just beyond is the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve with 1.3 million acres of unspoiled natural beauty.  Heading in other directions there are the Mayan Ruins of Coba and Muyil less than an hour away and the incredible Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza easily accessible for a day trip.  Snorkelling, scuba diving, golf, tennis, eco parks, jungle tours and nightlife are all just a short drive away.    

When you pull off of the Cancun - Tulum highway and onto the dirt track leading onto the beautiful shores of Tankah Tres bay, the stress of your life back home will drift away like the dust in the rear view mirror of your rental car. 

Tankah Tres Bay is a ring of white sand beach protected by an outer reef making for a shallow, protected bay that is ideal for snorkelling, kayaking and swimming.  On the bay are a number of private vacation properties, three restaurants, a dive shop and of course that warm, gin clear, blue Caribbean water. 

The backdrop to this postcard setting is a pristine mangrove jungle environment full of birds and tropical plants.  Tranquil Cenote Manatee with its warm, crystal clear, fresh water, cuts into the mangrove and allows access to this special place to those who snorkel or swim.

The Riviera Maya, Tankah Tres, and this gorgeous villa is the ideal vacation spot for anyone  who can appreciate the wonder of nature in a tropical paradise.

As you enter the property you will see a small casita 'little house' in the courtyard.  This is where your friendly hosts, Honorio & Silvia live.  Monday through Saturday, they provide villa and pool cleaning, gardening,  maintenance  and security when you are out.  Honorio will be happy to help you in any way he can and Silvia will provide laundry and cooking services for an additional fee.

Just beyond the casita is an inviting swimming pool with conchuela marble decking, covered area to get out of the sun, chaise lounges, table & chairs and some pool  toys for the kids.

Now that you have been kissed by the warm Caribbean sun and have listened to the pool call out to you, you will want to rush inside, drop the bags, and slip into your bathing suit.

One step inside and you will truly believe that 'you have arrived'  AND..... the stress that was lost in the dust not so very long ago, has just been replaced with a new one.  "WOW... what do we do first, run out and jump in that welcoming ocean, or turn around and dive into the pool"

The home features a magnificent open foyer with gorgeous terracota and wood floors, two skylight domes, a half bath off to the side, and a winding staircase leading to the inner balcony overlooking the exquisite second floor.

The foyer opens up to a comfortable living room with vaulted ceiling and sliding glass doors leading out to a covered terrace and the beach just steps beyond.  An amoire entertainment centers houses a TV with satellite coverage, DVD/VCR player and CD player.

This living space flows into the dining area and just behind a very spacious kitchen.  The entire living/dining area is a wall of sliding glass doors so that you can fully appreciate the breathtaking view.

The dining table comfortably sits 8 and a breakfast bar between the dining area and kitchen sits 4 more.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to prepare a snack or special holiday dinner.  OR if you prefer, for an additional fee, Silvia can spoil you with her traditional Mexican culinary skills, OR with some advance notice, Honorio can line up a chef to come in for a real treat.

With a large bay window overlooking the pool and the ocean visible in the other direction, this is one kitchen nobody will mind being in.

The villa boasts 4 magnificent bedrooms.  2 of these are master suites with King beds.  One of the others has a King bed and the other bedroom has two Double beds.  An air mattress is available with advance notice if required.

Each bedroom has a private bath.  The 2 Master suites have a giant tile soaker tub, shower and double vanity.  The other two bathrooms have tile showers and single vanities.  All bedrooms have ocean-side balconies for enjoying the breathtaking views at sunrise and sunset.

As beautiful as the villa is, it will be difficult to stay inside with so much natural beauty just steps from your door.  The owners are very much aware of this and have provided those little extras you cannot appreciate until you are there. 

A kayak to explore the bay, chaise lounges to worship the sun, covered terraces to cool off under, a rooftop miradoor to fully appreciate the sunrises and sunsets, a natural grill done in mosaic tile, hammocks to swallow you up, and a beach side shower to rinse off in, are but some of the extras you will enjoy.

A few COMMENTS from guests of Villa TANKAH BONITA:

This villa is perfectly situated between Akumal and Tulum with merely a 20 minute drive in either direction to get to everything that you would like to do and see including good restaurants, fun adventures, and nightlife. However, the villa itself is so well-maintained and perfectly laid out that there are many times that there is no reason to leave -- with the pool on one side of the house and Tankah Bay on the other, it is great for just hanging around the house; perhaps snorkelling at the Casa Cenote or sunbathing on the beach. With a caretaker and a cook right on site (her dinners are fantastic), there is, really, nothing to worry about. Honorio ( the caretaker) knows the area well, has great suggestions, and can even take care of small medical emergencies, if needed.  The house itself is gorgeous. Very well built with huge bedrooms and master bathrooms. And, the area of Tankah is very easy to walk around in; and, having the Casa Cenote Restaurant right next door is extremely convenient -- good food during the day (especially the Sunday brunch); a quiet drink in the evening. And, yet, the area is relatively quiet at night. The owners have "planted" their house in the perfect location in the perfect area of the Mayan Rivera. L. Fell, Aspen CO,

Our family has stayed at this beautiful villa 2 times in the past 3 years. The villa is absolutely gorgeous and has everything to offer its guests.  Each room is comfortable and includes its own bath, ceiling fan and separate temperature control. The views are stunning and no expense is spared on decoration and comfort. The on site caretakers are available at all times for whatever need you may have and are also available to prepare traditional meals for you with advance notice. The location is perfect for site seeing and day trips to Chichen Itza, Tulum, Valladolid, Ek Balaam and many other Mayan archaeological sites. There are ruins and underground cenotes all over the peninsula, in fact; there is a cenote within walking distance of the villa. Casa Cenote, an American owned restaurant is also nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Tankah bay, where the villa is located, is calm and relaxing. Snorkelling here is fantastic! The vast underground cave system of the Yucatan reaches right in front of the villa and you will see a blue circle of water where the cenote empties into the you can observe a plethora of tropical fish while snorkelling.  The villa has all the necessities of home and more. For those who aren't fans of sand, you can bask in the sun at the villas pool and sip frozen cocktails in the comfort of home. The town of Tulum is only a 10 minute drive where you will find craft stores, restaurants, a grocery store, bakery and many other shops. Tulum is a wonderful place to visit and observe the small town life of the local Mayan people.  The villa is your home away from home...the luxurious amenities await you and your friends & family. You will never want to return home once you experience the wonder of the Yucatan and the hospitality and beauty of this gorgeous villa.  L Rubio, Virginia,

We went over spring break with our family of 5 and another family of 4. There was plenty of room for all of us and the property is just gorgeous! It was very comfortable with all the things you could need. The beach was beautiful and so was the pool. We spent many days just hanging out there. There is a cenote just across the street that was great fun too. Also a restaurant right next door that had wonderful food. They shut down early so there was never a problem with noise. Take the drive into Tulum for shopping and a stop at the bakery! Worth the trip. Can't say enough positive things about this villa.  I hope we get to return there someday!  Stacey, Dallas Texas,

We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in February or 2009. Some family was only there a week so at most we were 8 people. This home is so roomy and comfortable. We initially thought having the pool in the back would be a disappointment but we had several very windy days and the pool was a beautiful sheltered oasis. We use the services of the caretakers Sylvia and Honorio a few times and had wonderful Mayan meals prepared by them. They are there when you needed them and the rest of the time you hardly noticed them but the place is always clean! We really enjoyed our time together at your beautiful Villa, thank you for sharing it. Jude, AB Canada,

Our family loves this villa. The house is beautiful - beautifully decorated, beautifully maintained and a wonderful location.  There is always a calm breeze so it is never too hot to relax outside and enjoy the view, the ocean and the pool. The small restaurant next door is a great place to sit outside and enjoy margaritas and chips or a full meal. The staff is very helpful and keeps the home immaculate. We have enjoyed this villa for two vacations and are hoping we can go back again with our family. It is an ideal place to totally relax but it is close to places of interest so there is always something to see and do if the spirit moves you. We have traveled to many places with our family and rented homes but we all consider this to be the best by far!  Chris, Idaho,
