About the property

The main level is spacious and airy.

Casa Yamulkan sits just forty feet from the water's edge along the incredible sand beach of Soliman Bay. This large crescent shaped bay with its amazing aquamarine waters is home to only a few private beach homes and is never crowded. An outer barrier reef protects the bay, keeping the water calm and making a perfect haven for tropical fish. Solimon Bay is therefore excellent for snorkeling and sea kayaking. On the beach, Casa Yamulkan guests enjoy a shade palapa furnished with hammocks and lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying the fabulous view.

Casa Yamulkan main house sleeps 11 in full comfort. On the ground floor there are two air-conditioned bedrooms both furnished with a king-size bed and private bath.

On the upper level there are two bedrooms sharing a bathroom, one with a king sized bed, and the other with two single beds. Both bedrooms are furnished with ceiling fans and air conditioning.

There is also a very spacious air-conditioned bedroom upstairs with its own private entrance in addition to an interior entrance. This room, with large windows that catch the breeze, is private for guests seeking a little solitude from the main house. It is furnished with a king bed, private bath and its own terrace with table and chairs offering a marvelous view of Soliman bay.

Go one more level up, and you are greeted by a glorious roof terrace with large thatched palapa seating area, with spectacular views over the bay to the east and the jungle to the west. This is the perfect place for enjoying morning coffee or watching the sunset with your favorite cocktail at hand, or stargazing at the beautiful Caribbean night sky.

For larger groups, the garden guest house (or "Casa Chica") can be rented in addition to the main house. This studio apartment with air conditioning has a king bed that can be converted into 2 single beds. Great for teens, or those wishing a bit more privacy.

There are two kayaks for those who want to be energetic and explore the beautiful waters of Soliman Bay. One small friendly dog also comes with the property.

Christmas in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

Wow the place was amazing. The best snorkeling ever right out our door and we definitely took advantage of that. Had enough room for our 6 children and their spouses. Jerry (I hope that is right that is what we called him)😊� was fabulous and his family. The best cook ever. Thank you so much for the amazing adventure for our family. We will not ever forget it. Have told everyone about it.

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. The home is very well appointed with everything that we needed for our week stay. The property is conveniently located in Soliman Bay, a very family friendly place. The bay is beautiful with plenty of fish and birds - and very friendly dogs - to keep you company. Jerry, the caretaker is helpful and is a chef. We had three wonderful meals cooked by him. Its a quick ride into Tulum town and a large grocery store is within 15 minutes of the home. We Cenote hopped every day and spent afternoons lounging at the home on the beach chairs or sitting under the large cabana. A truly magical, memorable vacation.

Perfect location on Soliman Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent nine wonderful, relaxing days at Casa Yamulkan. Favorite things from top to bottom - the rooftop views were amazing (perfect for catching the sunrise or the stars), the patio (perfect for breakfast, cervezas after snorkeling and just chilling) and, of course, the bay itself! The house is situated in a perfect spot on the bay. All you have to do is walk out the back door and get in the water. The snorkeling was great, lots of beautiful fish and even some rays. And none of the sargassum that was piling up on the south end of the bay. Jerry and Gisella kept the house clean and comfortable. Sparky came to visit a few times before he assumed his other identity and went to the tienda. ;) We miss it already and want to come back soon!

We were at Casa Yamulkan over spring break in March 2017. All photos and descriptions are accurate. This place is spectacular. I haven't had such a relaxing vacation in years. The house was clean and comfortable. We didn't have any issues through the 10 visit. We went out snorkeling right from the beach almost every day, sometimes multiple times. Coral is struggling in spots, but it was still fun to explore. We saw several rays and turtles during the week. Or the same ones over and over :) A close drive to many tourist spots. Jerry is an amazing cook! Don't pass up his meals! Jerry and staff keep everything clean and tidy. We are already planning our return!! Solomon Bay and Case Yamulkan are truly hidden gems! I wouldn't think twice to recommend this to anyone, unless they were looking to go the week I wanted to go!!!
