“Near Perfection”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Absolutely loved our stay at Casa Cavu. The manager never showed up like he was supposed to, but it didn't matter cause Isidro the caretaker and his wife Rosio were the absolute best and took care of our every need. It was quite and comfortable with plenty of space for the 7 adults (30+) that stayed.

Between the great snorkeling right off our beach, swimming in our pool or the nearby casa cenote, and kayaking, we had more than enough to do without leaving the house, but it's also wonderfully located for day trips anywhere in the Riviera Maya. You definitely need a car here, but driving to Chitchen Itza was about 2 hours, 40 min to Playa and a little over an hour to Cancun.

Isidro's cooking was some of the best food we had on our vacation, and I would definitely recommend that guests take advantage of that. Rosio kept the place immaculate as well. Can't wait to go back!

“Perfect for relaxation and fun.”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This was our 2nd stay at Casa Cavu. The house was perfect for our party of 5 adults.
Care and assistance from Isidro is there if you need and not in your way if you need nothing. Rocia comes in to clean daily and is extremely thorough. The house is perfectly out of they way. No tourists crowding the beach. and easily accessible by car to all the Riviera Maya and Yucatan has to offer. Its an hour and a half drive from the Cancun Airport. A rental car is a must to get around.

If you need entertainment there is TV and WiFi but why would one want to do that when you have the beautiful Caribbean just feet from the door. Having the pool is another major plus for cooling off and relaxing.

If you need to be surrounded by fancy resort style fluff, this is not the place for you.

We did not have Isidro cook for us this trip, but the house journal writings from previous guests rave about it. We went to Casa Cenote Restaurant, just North down the beach, daily and some times twice daily. It's a little hole in the wall beach place. Nothing fancy. We found the food good, the drinks strong, and the prices cheap. Perfect! There is also a mini mart on the Road next to Casa Cenote for last minute needs.

For fun Tankah bay activities within walking distance of the house: the Manati Cenote (across the road from Casa Cenote), The Cenote Outlet (in front of Casa Cenote), Kayaking and Snorkeling in the bay (wear life jackets!!), Swimming in the Cenote outlet near the southern point of the bay (past the shuttered Freedom Paradise Resort)

We'll be back!

“The perfect place for us”
Reviewed March 3, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

This was our second stay at Casa Cavu. We stayed here for the first time in 2011. It really is perfect for us--secluded location yet close to activities and restaurants, great snorkeling right in our own bay, fun for beachwalking and exploring, a nice pool to cool off in, and a clean spacious house to relax in. A rental car is pretty much a necessity for staying in this area. You could walk out to the road to catch a collectivo, but it would be a pretty long walk. Tulum has a wonderful grocery store and there are good restaurants there, as well as in Akumal. Both towns are close.
Isidro and Rocio are wonderful and take excellent care of the tenants. Our daughter had a birthday when we were there and Isidro made a birthday flan with candles and everything!
Watch out for mosquitos if you are there on calm days. Some insect repellant in the house would be a nice addition. The little ants in the kitchen can get out of hand if you don't rinse off dirty dishes.

Thank you for taking the time to write your wonderful and helpful comments about your vacation experience at Casa Cavu. It is a pleasure to know that you have stayed with us before. The house and the staff certainly appreciate your business. Casa Cavu is blessed to have such wonderful staff.
Thank you for your suggestion about the repellant to be stocked in the house. I will mention to Icidro. The ants are a battle due to the proximity of the mangroves and the troical environment in general. Casa Cavu is fumigated on a regular basis.
Thank you for staying with us. We will all look forward to your return to Tankah Tres beach and Casa Cavu.

“We were so happy here!”
Reviewed November 18, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We have not even left Casa Cavu and are already plotting how to return. We have spent a week here with another couple, and have been completely satisfied with our stay. The home is comfortable, spacious, well-equipped. The caretakers, Isidro and Rocio, have been responsive and pleasant, and Isidro is a great cook!! We loved having the pool, as the sea is best for kayaking, snorkeling, fishing...not swimming....The wi-fi was out for the first couple of days, but who cares because there is so much else to do and see, and the property management team worked with the satellite company to get it back up as soon as they could. We loved being at Tankah Bay, with restaurants handy, the nearby Manatee Cenote available for snorkeling, etc. The only rating that is "Good" instead of "Great" (the kitchen) is simply because of the presence of little ants on some of the kitchen counters. But some things, in the tropics, you just have to roll with.

Our experience was practically perfect in every way! Highly recommended! But don't take "our" week, lol!
