PURE + PERSONAL
Casa de las Olas is far from the average choreographed vacation experience. Unique from other accommodations, what sets us apart is the care and personal attention that we provide to our guests. Run by travelers for travelers, Casa de las Olas is about great food, engaging conversation, discreet relaxation and people who appreciate the same.
INTIMATE + PRIVATE
Our five suite Bed & Breakfast is by reservation only, ensuring that privacy is paramount. With an understated entrance leading you a world away, our intention is to create a tranquil space, allowing you the freedom to relax and reconnect with what’s most important to you. We invite you into our world to experience the essence and magic of Tulum that captivated us 15 years ago.
SERENE + SECLUDED
Casa de las Olas is a hidden gem tucked away along a private stretch of pristine beach in Tulum, Mexico. Situated just before the entrance to a 1.3 million acre Biosphere Reserve, the only sounds to be heard are the gentle breaking of waves, the swaying palms and the calls of exotic birds. Enjoy our oceanfront accommodations built in perfect synthesis with the surrounding landscape.
"Everything about Casa de las Olas goes back to having a peaceful, authentic experience of this part of Mexico... And I’ve got to say, I think they’ve nailed it."
-Mr. & Mrs. Romance, Australia

"There's a really strong etho ethic in Tulum: some places are entirely self-sufficient, such as the idyllic Casa de las Olas, which has its own solar power and a leave-no-trace vibe."
-The Daily Mail, UK
With a structure designed over 40 years ago, we are one of the oldest properties on Tulum beach. Casa de las Olas was intentionally built to capitalize on natural Caribbean breezes keeping our villa and property cool and comfortable without the use of air conditioning.
Casa de las Olas is powered completely by a state-of-the-art solar panel system. We only use a generator on cloudy days (and there aren’t a lot of them) when we are unable to harness the incredible power of the sun.
At Casa de las Olas everything from our cleaning products to bathroom amenities are organic and biodegradable. All food provided is locally sourced from family farms and carefully handpicked to ensure the freshest and ripest ingredients are chosen for our guests.
PLATINUM LEED REVIEWED
We are the only Platinum LEED reviewed property in Mexico. A LEED certification is recognized across the globe as the premier mark of achievement in green building and a Platinum Rating is the highest certification that can be attained.
We strive to eliminate all types of waste by following the 3 R’s of sustainability: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle. We utilize a grey water filtration system for our vill and all of our kitchen & organic waste are composted onsite and used to feed our natural vegetation.
Casa de las Olas was built to capture underground water sources while also having multiple rain collection systems. The water from our well is used for the villa's showers and gravity fed from our roof. We use our rainwater to revitalize, maintain and reproduce indigenous plants vital to the surrounding ecosystem.
