Review from Airbnb Guest

Truly felt like a bit of heaven in earth. I can’t stop thinking of the view of when I woke and saw the sunrise and beach through my window. And being able to just walk out and take a dip in the beautiful warm waters. Truly the view and beachfront location was beyond expectations. If and when I return to tulum I will Be staying here again. Since I was traveling with my whole family of 10 and my grandparents it was more convenient to hire chef Irma for our whole stay. She was great. If there’s anything though I recommend if you are traveling with large groups and maybe the elderly is to really figure out and plan the transportation well if you need to go downtown/ to the city/ tourist attractions. We wasted a lot of time trying to find a way to travel together, but still wouldn’t have stayed anywhere else for this trip. However if you just plan to mainly stay in this home and a little bit around, truly perfect. Thank you to snow, the wonderful manager Chabaley, who lived on site, the welcoming owner , GUY, who also lived on site, and the chef, Irma, for always being so accessible and also making our trip spectacular!

We were so happy to host your family at our Villa! It truly is an incredible option for groups. Irma is a wonderful option if you want to relax and enjoy the beach without any worries or coordination about where to eat. We are happy to provide a contact for a group shuttle service to use during your stay as most taxi's can only take up to 4 people at a time. There are many places within walking distance, but also great options if you want to explore further. We look forward to a future visit! All the best!

Review from Airbnb Guest

Beautiful homes, pools, beach! Villa #5 offers very spacious rooms with nearly every room having ensuite showers and toilets with high quality towels both for shower and beach included. Amazing views from the balconies and between the living area and patio which is all glass created by 3 sliding patio doors. Sea views all day long! Kitchens fully equipped, even with blenders to use for protein smoothies at breakfast and margaritas at dinner. Excellent A/C and wifi in every bedroom. Very quiet location and close to walk by beach or jungle road to many excellent restaurants and even a small grocery store, and several ATMs. A car is not needed! Most of our group arrived using Happy Shuttle which we highly recommend as they are incredibly professional, communicate several times in advance of your arrival and the vehicles are very high quality and accommodate 8, have great AC and seatbelts for all. Zorba is an amazing property and you will love it! The penthouse (2br) offers uniquely incredible views from a large balcony. There is also a rooftop balcony that is higher than most buildings and gives an unbelieveble panoramic view of the jungle and sea. Villa #1 offers amazing en suite bedrooms and a comfortable living/eating space, beautiful sea views. The staff and manager, Angel, were very friendly and helpful. Incredibly friendly and accommodating host, Snow is an excellent communicator and facilitator. You will feel very comfortable with Snow as your host!

Thank you so much for staying with us as at our newly renovated Villa! We appreciate the time you took to leave us a detailed review not only of Villa 5, but also the other homes your group stayed in. We look forward to your next stay!

Magic Experience Vow Renewal Party of 40+ guests

Zorba is magical from the minute you step inside the nondescript entrance. My wife and I booked all the villas for 40+ friends and family to celebrate our 20 Year Vow Renewals #DownsInTulum2019 (check instagram). Our guest flew in from everywhere and were absolutely blown away. The experience and accommodations were even better than we expected. We have ZERO complaints! Alma, Guy, Security, the entire staff were stellar! They truly care about their property and also the environment! We had so much fun all day and night we could never write it in words. These villas are one of a kind. We've stayed at a few places in Tulum but nothing like Zorba. All the rooms are so immaculate and extremely clean. The penthouse villa rooftop is a MUST see! The 360 degree views are unbelievable. We cannot wait to go back and would 1000% stay here again and we HIGHLY recommend booking the penthouse if you are traveling with your besties. It is beautiful, comfortable, relaxing, safe, and having the private beach plus two pools are just overwhelming in the best of ways. You are minutes away from some of the best beach bars in either direction. We recommend walking the beach to the other boutique hotels to experience their food, music and bars. Thank you Zorba, We'll be back!

Thank you for the beautiful review! It was an absolute pleasure to host your group for your vow renewal. Congratulations on an incredible celebration! Seeing everyone so relaxed and enjoying the place was amazing. We will share your kind words with Alma, Guy, and the rest of the staff. Happy you felt safe and confident that you chose the right place for your special day. We can't wait for you to stay with us again.

Tulum's Hidden Gem

Zorba Beach Homes is truly Tulum's hidden gem. I had a destination wedding in Tulum and we were so lucky to find these homes to accommodate our 44 guests. We rented out the entire property for four nights and had so much fun making use of the community pool, rooftop patio, and private beach that was just steps away from all five villas. Each villa is beautiful and unique, and they were all perfect for our large group of guests. The kitchen area in each villa was so convenient. My family and friends were able to make a trip to the grocery store and stock the fridge for the week that we were there. I also had a welcome night event at the property for all my guests. We ate tacos, drank margaritas, and made so many memories. The staff and managers on site were so attentive and accommodating. It was evident that they care about their guests and put in the extra effort to treat those that stay at their property like family. The housekeeping staff was incredible. They came in to each villa every day and made the place look like it did when we first arrived. The night security was an added bonus. He really looked out for us and made us feel safe at all times. On the day of my wedding I felt so lucky to be at Zorba Beach Homes getting ready in the Zorba Penthouse. The views up there are breath taking and it made for some beautiful photographs that I will be able to look at forever. This property is perfect for any bride and groom looking for a place in Tulum to accommodate their wedding guests. I can't say enough good things about this property! Zorba now holds a special place in my heart. I will definitely be returning. My family, friends, and I had the best time here and cannot stop talking about this place and how beautiful it is. We made memories that will last a lifetime. (Collected via TripAdvisor)

Thank you so much for the glowing review! It was amazing to host your friends and family for you beautiful wedding in Tulum. We will pass your kind words to our hospitality staff and housekeeping and our dedicated night security guard. We feel grateful to be the venue for a memory that will last a lifetime. We wish you all the best and hope you find your way back to Tulum and to Zorba for a future stay.

Beautiful Villa and location

We stayed at the 5 bedroom villa with private pool. We were a group of 14 girls and had an incredible time. The entire space is beautiful and the beach is right at your door steps. There was a lot of seaweed in the ocean which sucked but because the property had two pools we were still able to get our pool time. The staff is very friendly as well and their yoga shala is perfect for yoga and other sessions. Location is right on the strip and fairly central. 10 to 15 min walk to the main part of the strip. I would definitely reccomend the villa and property as it's perfect for groups and family both. Xoxo Sana

Thanks for staying with us! It was a pleasure to host your group of girls! Happy you enjoyed the pools on the property and the friendly staff. It was beautiful to see your group use the Yoga Shala space to gather. This space is available to all our guests. We are about a 10 min walk to the heart of the action along the beach road, but only steps to some of our favourite spots - Nu restaurant, Be Tulum, Yaan Spa and Nomade. Thank you for the recommendation!

Review from Airbnb Guest

The entire experience staying at the Villa was nothing less than amazing. I stayed in the largest villa on Snow's property for my bachelorette this past weekend with 12 of my closest girlfriends. We cannot say enough good things about our experience. The house, beach and location are exactly as shown in the photos - which was great to see upon arrival. We were greeted by Chabley immediately and given details on our stay. With no time wasted, we changed into our suits and headed down to our private beach and soaked in the beautiful 85 degree weather. If you book this house, make sure to book chef services with Irma and staff - I promise you, you will not regret it. They were absolutely amazing and cooked incredible food. We loved having them there everyday. Transportation services were also available which were key and made the trip from Cancun to Tulum very simple. We were provided with great recommendations for local fare and shops by the owner (Charley's Vegan Tacos, Nomade, Be Tulum to name a few), whom was present on the property. All of my girlfriends and I appreciated his attentiveness to the success of our stay, which was very successful. All in all, you would be foolish to not book with Snow - do not miss out on this villa!!!!!!! And Thanks to Snow and Chabley for everything. We are very appreciative and will not forget this trip - it truly was a trip of a lifetime.

So glad you enjoyed an amazing stay! Irma's chef services always add to the experience. There is are so many wonderful restaurants to explore. We can't wait for you to return. Your group is always welcome : )

Fairytale Wedding!

My family and friends rented the entire complex for 5 days to celebrate my daughter's wedding. It was perfect from beginning to end. The rehearsal dinner was actually held on the property and it was fabulous. Tables were set up near the steps to the beach and 100 people were accommodated very well. We used the chef services as well and Erma was fabulous. She prepared a complete dinner for 24 including pork, chicken fajitas and vegetarian tamales. It was delicious. Others in our party used Erma to prepare breakfast and they were very happy with her work as well. Chabely was amazing. She answered all our questions and set up 2 excursions that were awesome for our family and friends to enjoy. We bombarded Chabely with questions but she was always sweet and responsive. The staff that cleaned the area were also efficient and amazing. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about Zorba except that our driver didn't know where it was and drove past it! It really was the experience of a lifetime. It took some of my relatives a minute to get used to putting toilet paper in the wastebasket but they got the hang of it. There were fresh flowers in every room and bathroom. It was a 5 star experience. (Via TripAdvisor).

Thank you so much for staying with us for such an important celebration! We will pass your compliments on to the Chef and Chabely for helping you have an amazing holiday at Zorba. Your family is always welcome at Zorba and we hope you visit us again soon!

wedding of our dreams/the best option to relax with your family

We booked the house for our wedding- celebration. It was the perfect location to have a small dinner party at the beach and dancing at the terrasa. The staff helped us with everything. Before and after the wedding we spent beautiful relaxing days with our family. It is like a dream coming true: you wake up and can walk at the beach, take your coffee with ocean view, at night you can have some barbecue. The house is perfectly equipped and also close to a lot of restaurants if you want to go out. Thanks for everything. We hope to come back soon!

Thank you for sharing the love with our Villa! It was a joy to have you stay. We look forward to your next visit!

Great house

Beautiful house on a beautiful beach and right in the midst of all the action on the beach strip of Tulum.

We are in the heart of the Tulum Beach area, close to shops and restaurants. We're glad you enjoyed the location! We look forward to your next visit.

We would absolutely book this house again!

We loved this house. The beach and gorgeous water are literally your back yard, there is plenty of room to spread out, the folks who work with this property are amazing, the recommended chef was a delight and prepped delicious food we ate outdoors and... I could go on and on! It's just far enough away from the action that you feel like you have your space, but walkable to anything you could desire. Great find! The owner's suggestions on activities outside of Tulum's hustle and bustle were spot on. We were there with four adults and three kids and it was perfection.

We love hosting families and do our best to ensure everyone is comfortable and enjoys their time at the Villa and the surrounding area. We are happy to share 'the inside scoop' on things to do during your stay.

I love the simplicity of living on the beach. Tulum is a vibrant area with white sand beach, clear turquoise water, local artisan boutiques, yoga + spas, delicious culinary scene + restaurants, and artistry in every nook. I have been a Tulum regular since 2008 when the beach was a long sleepy stretch of sand. It has grown a lot, but the relaxed bohemian vibe can still be found at our Mahayana and Zorba Properties, plus there are so many more places to eat, shop, and explore! We look forward to sharing this piece of paradise x Very best, Snow
