Casa Dunia is for accommodations only. We do not rent it as an event venue. EVENTS, PARTIES, LARGE GATHERINGS ARE NOT PERMITTED. DJ / SOUND & LIGHT EQUIPMENT ARE NOT PERMITTED. Casa Dunia, our beautiful, oceanfront, two-story home, is ideally located in the private compound of Rancho San Eric. The property is a hidden gem, tucked away at the quiet southern end of Tulum's paved section of the beach road, about 200 yards before the entrance into the Sian Ka'an Nature Reserve. We truly have the best of both words--away from the hustle and bustle of Tulum's crowded section of the beach, but close enough to easily walk, bike or drive to restaurants, bars and shops whenever the urge hits!

EVENTS, PARTIES, LARGE GATHERINGS ARE NOT PERMITTED. DJ / SOUND & LIGHT EQUIPMENT ARE NOT PERMITTED. Casa Dunia, our beautiful, oceanfront, two-story home, is ideally located in the private compound of Rancho San Eric. The property is a hidden gem, tucked away at the quiet southern end of Tulum's paved section of the beach road, about 200 yards before the entrance into the Sian Ka'an Nature Reserve. We truly have the best of both words--away from the hustle and bustle of Tulum's crowded section of the beach, but close enough to easily walk, bike or drive to restaurants, bars and shops whenever the urge hits! The house is perfect for family gatherings or groups, with plenty of common areas to lounge, relax and commune, not to mention top-notch chef service included for breakfast and dinner, so you don't have to worry about meal planning or shopping for the group (guests pay for all groceries plus a 120 USD/week shopping fee). The spacious yet intimate home sits atop the first sand dune, overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea...you can literally step out the living room door onto the soft white sand. Casa Dunia comfortably sleeps up to 11 guests in two ground floor bedrooms, two upstairs bedrooms, and one upstairs family suite. All bedrooms feature king-size beds, ensuite bathrooms, in-room safes, and air conditioning units (which operate at night only, from 8pm - 8am). The top-floor family suite also has an additional sofa which may be made up as a single bed, on request. ​ Casa Dunia's open, airy living spaces invite guests to relax and gather, offering formal, indoor dining for 10 and a comfortable living area which opens out onto the home's white sand terrace with a breathtaking ocean view. Lounge on the sofas or hammock under the palm trees, soak up some sun on the chaise lounges, or dine al fresco at the 12-seater dining table while watching the surf roll in. ​ If the sea is too rough, jump into the pool on the jungle side of the house, which is shared with guests of the two neighboring homes (where any additional guests from your group can stay, should your numbers exceed 11). The home boasts a professional kitchen, sectioned off from the living area by a fresh-water aquarium. It has a beautiful natural wood island, 6-burner gas stove, flat top, oven, and is fully equipped. For some down time, the Casa Dunia also offers a small 'game corner' with a foosball table, board games, and a lending library of paperbacks. Wifi is available throughout the property. CONFIRMATION We require a 50% deposit and a signed contract in order to confirm a reservation. The remaining 50% is due no later than 60 days prior to arrival. All payments for the rental of this home is through wire transfer only. Please inquire for more information on the other homes in Rancho San Eric.More
