Casa del Perro Feliz offers a beachfront escape to unplug, relax, and reconnect with family, friends and nature. Casa del Perro Feliz is a well appointed, yet very comfortable beachfront villa, a favorite of many visitors to the Tankah area. This wonderful vacation rental is located on quiet, security gated, Tankah Bay in the Mayan Riviera, this 3 Bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home, is available for rent to guests who also appreciate beauty, quality and nature.
Tucked into the curve of the bay, the villa is built amongst the palms and the indigenous trees on a half acre lot, behind a large, gated, stone wall. Casa del Perro Feliz has one of the larger lots on the bay with 99' of beach frontage. The house is very comfortable and open, and has many windows with magnificent views. Our sand beach is quite private and is the perfect place to launch your kayak, go snorkel, or just take a dip in the warm Caribbean waters.
The culmination of many years of planning and dreams, the house is over 2400 sq.ft. and features Mexican tile floors, Mahogany trim and doors, and a "cooks" kitchen with granite countertops and Bosch gas stove. The handmade, custom, dining room table seats 8 and the breakfast bar seats 3. If you don't feel like cooking, you can also have Maria, who is an excellent cook, prepare your breakfast or dinner for a very reasonable fee. In addition to our caretakers, Ulises and Maria, who live on-site in a separate house, our American property manager lives nearby on the bay.
All bedrooms have private baths, large closets and comfortable beds with Serta pillow-top mattresses, box springs and high TC cotton bed linens. The floor plan is very user friendly and all bedroom suites have their own baths and privacy. One bedroom is on the first floor, the other two are located on the second floor. The villa has marble and tile in the bathrooms, a second floor balcony and patio, and lots of windows in the house so you can take advantage of the beautiful views of the ocean and the sea breezes.
Designed to be environmentally friendly and not require air conditioning, the passive solar design, 9 1/2 ft. high ceilings, Hunter ceiling fans, and strategically placed, screened windows, provide soothing sea breezes along with views of the ocean and keep the house cool and comfortable. Enjoy the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, and the breezes rustling in the palm leaves instead of the hum of the air conditioner. Shaded by the native palm trees, the front of the house, and our palapa, are ideal spots for relaxing in one of the hammocks with a good book.
Casa del Perro Feliz has five Ocean Kayak brand kayaks and three bike shop quality bicycles for guests to use. We have found the kayaking and snorkeling in front of the villa is some of the best in the area. We see a multitude of various fish every time we snorkel including, Queen Angelfish, Permit, Trunk, and Parrot fish.
The rooftop features a large open area with a built-in sofa which seats 8, and has a million dollar view. Relax on the rooftop sofa with a Margarita or your favorite drink, and enjoy the stunning views of the turquoise Caribbean, and watch the indigenous birds and the sunset over the jungle. It is the perfect way to end a great day at the beach!
If you've never visited Tankah before, you'll be delighted to see that it is a small community in between Tulum and Akumal which has nice beachfront homes, three small hotels with restaurants, and is situated on a quiet, sparkling bay, with white sand beaches. Kayak, bike or walk to Casa Cenote for a snack or a cervesa and a swim in the Cenote, or visit the Tulum Mayan Ruins, 8Kms. away. The options are all yours!
We have been visiting the area for over 25 years, and feel that Tankah offers the best of both worlds; nature & seclusion with nearby amenities such as shopping, restaurants and cultural sites. Casa del Perro Feliz has been the home away from home for many, many, satisfied guests. We have found that the volume of repeat guests is by far the best testimonial we could ask for! We invite you to visit Casa del Perro Feliz!
This is a NON-SMOKING house. Smokers are asked to smoke outside only. No smoking on the roof due to the materials used on the roof's surface, or in the palapa due to it's flammable nature.
