 Villa Tankah Magica
Sandy beachfront villa with 4 bedrooms for rent on Tankah Bay,
 Riviera Maya, Mexico
maximum occupancy 8 people NOTE: owner might consider 9 people... inquire
NOTE: Pets are welcome at this property


Just a short way from Tulum, villa Tankah Magica sits tucked amongst the coconut palms, on the sandy shore of Tankah Tres Bay.  This bright and well equipped 4 bedroom, 3 bath villa and the bay itself, exudes the casual, tropical charm that the Riviera Maya was known for before all the McMansions and Mega Resorts arrived and started to dominate many of the area beaches.

This still is a laid back 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 should you wish to get out and explore.  Tulum with its' funky charm, unique restaurants & shops, fabulous 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.  Jungle canopy tours, eco parks, golf, tennis, and deep sea fishing charters are all just a short drive away.    

But why go anywhere?  Tankah Tres Bay itself is picture perfect ring of white sand beach and tranquil blue water that is protected by an outer reef making it ideal for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.  All of which are available right at your doorstep.  Adding to the natural beauty of the bay, is a fresh water cenote (sink hold fed by underwater river) located just a short walk from the villa.  This gorgeous natural swimming hole has glass clear water and is a most inviting place to swim, snorkel or dive.

Turn off of the Cancun - Tulum highway and meander a very short way down the dirt track leading to the tranquil shores of Tankah Tres bay, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life at home will drift away like the dust in the rear view mirror of your rental car. 

Pull into the sandy driveway of this charming beachfront villa, turn off the car, kick off your shoes, step out into the powdery white sand, take a deep breath of the warm salt tinged tropical air.... and know that you have arrived in paradise.

The villa and location are unforgettable and charming.  Coconut palms and tropical gardens frame the villa. The tiled beachside freshwater pool and stunning turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean complete this idyllic vision of a tropical paradise. The beach and pool area are well furnished with lounge chairs and hammocks.  Tankah Tres Bay is fronted by the world's second largest reef that stretches from Belize to the tip of the Yucatan.  Here the coral reef system is flourishing with life.

Step inside Tankah Magica and you will fall under her charm.  Bright colors, traditional Mexican tiles of ceramic and terracotta.   Indigenous hard woods and Talavera accent pieces all confirm that you are in Mexico.  Comfortable furnishings and a full list of amenities ensure that your stay is without hardship.

The main living area with its ocean and pool front exposure has a nice grouping of couches and chairs for the family or friends to relax, share conversation, or watch a movie.  Sliding glass doors open to a large covered terrace, the pool and beach.

A hand made dining table set is conveniently positioned between the living area and kitchen.  But why eat indoors.... here in the tropics we love to eat 'al fresco'.... so a large dining set is awaiting you under the covered terrace with a great view of the ocean.

The cheerful kitchen of the villa is set up with everything you should need to prepare all your meals...  OR why not really spoil yourself and have meals prepared for you.  For an additional price you can have someone take care of the shopping, preparation of the meal(s) serve it to you and then clean up after, leaving you to ... well... do nothing...

The ground floor has 3 bedrooms which are all accessed off of the living room.  On the north end is a large bedroom with King bed, en-suite bathroom with shower and sliding glass door to access the covered terrace, pool and beach. 

The other 2 ground floor bedrooms are on the south side of the living room and split by a bathroom with shower.  One of the bedrooms has a King bed and sliding door access to the terrace, pool and ocean.  The other bedroom has garden view and fitted with Twin beds.

Upstairs on the 2nd level is another Master suite with King bed and en-suite marble finished bathroom with shower.  Like the other beds in the home, this has a removable mosquito netting that when in place, adds to the tropical flair of the home.  This is a design detail, not a functional feature that should concern you  of a problem with mosquitoes.

The bedroom enjoys an ocean view and private access to a very large terrace with sitting and lounge areas.

The very large and inviting terrace on the 2nd level can be accessed directly from the Master bedroom, or through an indoor sitting area that is at the top of the stairs.  A shaded area offers plenty of seating for the whole group or a quiet hideaway to curl up with a novel.

The 2nd floor terrace also has an open sunning area with chaise lounge chairs for another alternative for relaxing apart from the group.  From this area, a stairway leads to the roof where a mirador (observation area) with comfy couch is the ideal place to enjoy an evening cocktail as the sun sets, or for the early riser, a perfect place to catch the sunrise while you contemplate another day in paradise of doing nothing.

This villa truly is for beach lovers, with entire home surrounded by white powdery sand and great outdoor spaces on the beach side of the home.  This is paradise waiting.....

We loved it! I would recommend it highly.  Thank you for everything. Stephanie,  Jan. 2014

The house was immaculate and just the perfect amount if space for our group. The home is very well maintained and everything worked. It really felt like a 5 star experience without the traffic. The beach was wonderful and Bernadino and Maria were very kind and helpful. We also felt very safe. The safes in the house are a good touch.  Trisha M.  Nov. 2012. 

We love this villa.  In fact we have a hard time leaving the house!  It is so relaxing here by the pool, snorkelling, playing volleyball, lounging in the hammocks ....  We do leave the house to:
- Boogey Board at Tulum's Paradiso Beach
- Eat gelato at Penne & Chocolate in Tulum Pueblo
- Buy roasted chicken at Bronco Chicken in Tulum
- Search for turtles on Akumal beach.
The place is great.. Sloan, Nick, Jeremy.  July 2011

This is our 3rd visit to Tankah Bay but our first stay at this villa - the best by far!!!  The home has so many more amenities and creature comforts than the others we rented.  We brought back our 3rd group of friends and they loved it just as much.  We did a little adventuring but preferred it here as many places simply had too many tourists.  We will return!!!  Chris, Kathy & Buddy Chamber.  Sandpoint ID.  April 2011

The villa is a lovely home and we very much enjoyed our week here.  Mexico and the people were warm and welcoming.  It's a beautiful country and culture and we are fortunate to spend the week here.  From swimming with manatees to kayaking and snorkelling to visiting the ruins to cenotes to sailing cruises to walking the beaches to relaxing at the villa.  It was a wonderful week spent with family that will always be treasured.  Tim, Erin, Natalie,  Feb. 2011

Ken, Harold, Elizabeth, and Eric escaped an ice storm in northwest Arkansas to work on our suntans.  We had all been in the region before so hung by the pool, snorkelled in the bay, and walked the beach.  Highlights of the stay were a coatamundi crossing the road and a spotted cowfish out in the bay.  Thanks for the wi-fi.  It helped us keep in touch with home and follow the succession of snow storms.  Feb. 2010

We stayed at the villa with our 2 daughters and 2 small grand-daughters, and all of us had a really good time. The house was exactly as advertised, very comfortable and well-equipped, and really peaceful. It is indeed paradise!  Bernardino, the caretaker, and Maria, the housekeeper, were really great, always very helpful, and the meal they prepared for us at our request one evening was really delicious and not to be missed. It does make a difference having someone there if you need them, and Bernardino is great - discreet but always available.  It is also reassuring to have Noel the security guard outside at night because it is such a quiet location.  It is difficult to imagine how this wonderful place could be any better.  Ian & Renee

It was one of the very best vacations we've had in all our travels in the Caribbean. We'd love to go back again. 

Excellent place to stay for families.  The six of us had more than enough room.  Casa Rosa's location is EXCELLENT.  Brent C.

I have traveled extensively around the globe for over 25 years. For personal travel, I stay whenever possible in vacation rental properties. I find they provide a more comfortable and memorable experience than hotels. That means I have stayed in a lot of rental properties in a wide variety of locations from Tuscany to the Gulf of Siam. This villa may very well be the single best such property in which I have ever stayed. The location is superb, the beach almost unbelievably white and pristine. We were out everyday enjoying the sites in the area, but, frankly, we really did not need to go anywhere. We could have had a fabulous time just staying at the house. The condition of the property is flawless. The staff is courteous, attentive when they need to be and unobtrusive when that is required. Both of the local property managers visited us during our stay, and they were both class acts as well. The cenote down the road is a real pleasure on a hot day. I snorkelled every day I was there in the bay out front and saw more fish than I had seen in many years of scuba diving, all within about fifteen minutes of the house. The last night we were there, the baby turtles began to hatch from nests along the beach. Literally hundreds of them were becoming disoriented and wandering away from the water rather than toward it The night guard, who was a true gentlemen, was out in the dark, scooping them up and taking them gently to the bay. He invited both our children to help, and they participated in saving dozens of these endangered animals. You could hardly ask for a more perfect way to end our vacation. In short, if your plan is to drink your weight in tequila and sit by the pool with hundreds of other tourists - stay in Cancun. If you are looking for a real vacation and a chance to experience what the Yucatan has to offer, you would be hard pressed to do any better than this. Charles F.
