This villa is furnished with lovely hardwoods and artistic touches from renowned artists. As you come through the beautiful wrought iron entrance gate, walk up the handicap accessible entrance to the house and open the front door, you will be greeted by the turquoise blue waters of the Mayan Riviera. The entire beach side of the house is fronted with large bay windows that bring the outside in. Just a few steps away from the large, open living room and kitchen area is the swimming pool. The bedrooms are wonderfully decorated with the warm, bright colors of Mexico and you will find custom mosaics in each of the bathrooms. Step out on the Romeo and Juliet veranda and sip a Margarita on the Mahogany day bed.

Not only is Tankah Bay famous for it's wonderful beach but also for the cenote just 10 minutes walk from the villa.

Luxury on Tankah Bay
Villa Orquidea is nothing short of marvelous. The property is magnificent, with finishes of the highest quality, and furnishings to match. No detail has been overlooked. Jose attended to our every need, despite the fact that his wife Marisol was staying with her mother in Akumal, in anticipation of the imminent birth of their second child. Jose and sister Anna prepared fabulous dinners and breakfasts. Don't miss the chiles rellenos, and the huevos rancheros. Jose's Mexican Flag after dinner drink is a must do! Colorful, flamboyant, fun, and tasty. We kayaked out to the reef every day, where the snorkeling was some of the best we've ever experienced. All manner of colorful tropical fish; even a sea turtle, langosta, and several nurse sharks. Large schools of small fish (chub?), 1,000 or more at a time. With pleasant security personnel unobtrusively keeping an eye on things at night, we always felt safe. We enjoyed pizza and Caribbean Fish at the Blue Sky, where Leo runs a great restaurant. Tankah Bay is a beautiful, quiet setting. No high rises or mega resorts. Perfect! Direct access into the water is difficult, and you'll want sturdy Tevas, Keens, or surf shoes for beach walking. The beach is not really a walking beach, though we did walk all the way down to Dreams. Day trips to Akumal Bay, the Tulum ruins, and the Tulum beaches provided some nice variety; and we were always happy to return to our haven on Tankah Bay. I would strongly recommend Villa Orquidea to anyone who is seeking a luxury, beach front vacation, with all the amenities of home.

Escape to Paradise
Villa Orquidea is a perfect escape from the hussle & bussle of many popular vacation destinations -- a true hidden paradise! The villa is close enough to many exciting excursions, but also allows for total relaxation if that's what you need.

Great new house designed very well. Very private.

Nice and Relaxing
We had a great time. It went mostly very well. I would have rated it higher if the service had been more professional. However, being a remote beach area in Mexico, I should have adjusted my expectations accordingly. All in all, we enjoyed our vacation very much and the house was wonderful.

PERFECT! I'm not sure there are any other words to describe our stay and this place!We enjoyed going to Playa del Carmen and Akumal, we loved Tulum and our day trip to Chichen Itza.However we were so thankful to have this beautiful, quiet and private retreat to come back to.A perfect day was spent with coffee on the beach, a long walk, kayaking, swimming, and lots of reading.What a treat to finish 3 books!We hear you are from Iowa! We are from Marshalltown originally!Thanks for sharing your place and we hope to be back next year.

Thank you for sharing this most wonderful place! Everything was here that we could have wanted - from the blue floaters to the kayaks and the "small" things that make it home.Top on our list for eating out was Mezzanine, beautiful atmosphere and most friendly service.We also enjoyed Charlie's and Mariachi's.Arlene has been a joy to visit with, always full of great info and so helpful.I only wish we could stay longer.

We had a fantastic time here. Your casita is wonderful.We kayaked in the bay, snorkeled in the cenote and visited the ruins in Chichen Itza, Ek' Balam, Coba and Tulum.This was a perfect location to see and do so much.The recommendation to eat at the Mayan Grill was much deserved.I can't think of a better venue for a lovely dinner. Thank you also for recommending Hidden Worlds.If the weather goes south, just head to the caverns to snorkel.That was really something.Thank you again!

Our only regret is that we didn�t stay long enough.After a long cold winter in North Carolina, Orquidea has rejuvenated our souls and warmed our bodies.There is little that a few days in this beautiful location can't cure.Thank you especially for the wonderful services of Antonio and his wife.They made us feel well taken care of.If only we had known in advance that they cook this well! Next time... and there will definitely be a next time!

We felt so lucky to be the first guests in the main house of Villa Orquidea!What a beautiful home.Everything was perfect! This was our first visit to this area and we loved it.What a treat to have Damaris and Antonio here to take such good care of us.They were so kind to us they felt like friends at the end of the week.Thank you again for sharing your home with us.
I think your house is so amazingly beautiful, I would like to come again.And Antonio and Damaris are very CUTE and HELPFUL.
Thank you so much for renting out your beautiful home!This place is exactly what we needed after a miserably long and cold winter in MN. Antonio and Damaris are maybe the cutest people I have ever seen and were very kind and helpful, not so mention amazing cooks.The towns were beautiful and that Hidden Worlds was a blast. Thank you again.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to be the first renters in your amazing home! Everything about it is absolutely breathtaking.There are many things around here to explore and experience and I feel very lucky to have done so.Also Hidden Worlds is absolutely amazing and a blast and I think anyone would enjoy that! Thank you for helping us enjoy our dream vacation.
PS Antonio and Damaris are wonderful!!!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful casita.My husband, Shane and I greatly enjoyed our stay here for anot too often couple's get away.While we missed our two little boys back in TX a good bit, your casita and the pool helped take away any worries we had about them.Antonio and Damaris were wonderful - fantastic cooks and caretakers.We wished we could have stayed a bit longer - as these little getaways help to refresh and renew our wonderful marriage but we both agree that we will take what we can get.This was our second time in Tankah Bay.We are fairly certain we will return again as this bay in México is magical and beautiful.¡Hasta luego! ¡Muchas gracias!
