Both bedroom and bath have a sea view. 

The casita is now open as well.  The casita is separate from the main villa.  It is a fully contained 'house' with a complete kitchen, shower and toilet, sofa, dining nook and queen bed, complete with it’s own AC unit.  Many windows make it bright and airy. From here you have a sea and pool view, from your private balcony. The entire villa with casita can sleep 8 adults and 4 children in sheer comfort and style. (More children if they are babies).

We are located just five miles from Tulum town, where you can visit the only seaside ancient Mayan ruins. Tulum is a growing beach community complete with shopping, restaurants, a hopping nightlife, fishing, diving, and jungle tours. So much more.

Loved Tulum!

This villa is a very nice place in a 5-star location. The house staff kept it immaculate during our stay, and they offered laundry service for 100 pesos per small load. The recommended chef service was amazing and really made our trip feel similar to staying at a resort. Each meal was incredible and they cleaned up afterwards too. We had 2 families along with us and there was room for everyone. The kids LOVED the pool and the snorkeling in the cove down the beach. We decided not to use the casita, as it is in need of some updating. Our only issue during the trip was that the power went out several times for hours at a time, and the water also ran out for about 1/2 a day. This villa REALLY needs a generator. All of the places around us seemed to have one, and when you are paying this much money, you want access to appliances, your electronic devices and especially air conditioning!! Our chefs had to be very creative for several of our meals as they only had access to the gas stove. Sleeping without the a/c was almost unbearable and although we understand that everyone did their best to get the issue resolved each time, it really did cause us some discomfort. I will be asking on a go-forward basis if the rentals I plan on booking have generators for power outages. That being said, we had a REALLY great vacation and Zubet definitely did her best to accommodate us before and during the entire trip!!

Turtle Paradise!!!

Wonderful house! The house is new and spacious with spectacular views. The kids loved playing in the pool and the adults loved hanging out on the balcony. Your objective for this beach is not strolling or snorkeling, but turtle watching and the turtles did not disappoint. We were there in July and every night it was like turtle Normandy often with half a dozen turtles laying eggs at the same time. We didn’t see any hatchlings but that had to be quite something to see too. Zubet took care of everything we needed and the trip went very smoothly. I recommend hiring the personal chef that Zubet recommends. It was affordable, the food was amazing, you save so much time versus sitting in restaurants, and if you have food allergies to deal with, it’s especially wonderful. Thank you Zubet for a once in a lifetime experience!!!

Spacious, quiet, well appointed

This is a great home to book with a group of friends or family. The 3 bedrooms in the house ( our group didn’t require the guest house ) all had very large bathrooms, and a/c in each room when you need to cool off.

The steps from the yard lead RIGHT to the beach which was lovely


-Bring tough bottom water shoes for sure as there is a good amount of rock/coral and you will defiantly want to get in that water.

- When leaving the house to the beach, go left for about a nice 10 minute walk along the water and there is a cute little beach side restaurant called Chamicos to grab food and drinks at.

- Just one building over to the left on the beach is a small hotel that has a beachside indoor restaurant overlooking the water as well.

- Home comes with large drinking water dispensers on both levels so bring a reusable water bottle to take with you when you go out for the day

- Casa Cenote is right up the street from you, and across from that is a small market.

Fantastic Luxury Getaway

My wife and I just returned from a week at Corozon De La Tortuga which we shared with another couple an their two younger daughters (9 and 4). The house is beautiful with very high-grade furniture and uniqure architectural touches made from very high quality materials. You get the feeling that a lot of thought went into the design and construction of this wonderful house and it has held up very well - still looking new in it's ocean-front location.

This was my first time staying in the Tulum area as we had friend's down the beach celebrating a birthday - having stayed in the Akumal area for the last 6 visits. I can say that this area is definitely a step up in all areas that originally attracted me to Akumal 10 years ago - privacy, ocean-front villas, beachfront restaurants with very good food, proximity to other attractions along highway 307, value.

The owner and staff really go out of their way to meet requests and help to make you feel at home and provide details if it is your first visit. We took advantage of the chef services on 4 occasions and had 4 wonderful meals and a very good value.

We were always looking forward to get back home to Corozon De La Tortuga after a day of adventures up and down the coast!

A Perfect Holiday

We have just returned from a very memorable 14 days stay in Tulum, staying at the gorgeous beach front villa Corazon de la Tortuga (Turtle Heart Villa). The property is just incredible with many high-lights including secluded but safe location, lovely spaces with comfortable beds and stunning bathrooms, beautiful pool and surroundings, mins from tavernas and cenotes, but the best is being able to sit on the villa steps and watch the sea turtles making their way to the beach to make their nests and lay eggs and subsequently watching the eggs hatch and the wee baby turtles make their way to the ocean. A truly magical and privileged experience. The villa manager and staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble. The house and rooms were cleaned to a very high standard daily and for a small fee our laundry washed and folded. We stayed in the villa with friends and 3 children under 5 and it was a more than comfortable and safe environment. We used the chef services a couple of nights, the food was delicious and it was a treat to be waited on without having to leave the house! There are so many exciting things to do around the area, Explor and Xel Ha were particular highlights as was the Tulum Ruins and awe inspiring Chichen Itza (one of the 7 new wonders of the world). I would not hesitate in recommending Corazon de la Tortuga to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of the world and thank Zubet and Francesca for helping make our stay comfortable and worry free.
