A Unique Experience

My name is Snow. I manage the reservations for Zorba Tulum and Mahayana Tulum and know the homes and properties intimately -- they have been my home away from home for the past 18 years.

I can't wait to share this paradise with you. In the meantime, below are the most frequently asked questions. However, please email me directly at if you have any additional questions or are ready to book your stay. 

I look forward to welcoming you to Tulum!

Zorba Beach Homes Tulum map of villas

Zorba enjoys a premium location on the beach in the boutique hotel area of Tulum, Mexico. ​Each Villa is private yet enjoys full use of the Zorba property.  Pristine white sand connects from your doorstep to the loungers and poufs on the beach by the Caribbean Sea. ​​Our fast fiber-optic wifi speeds allow guests to stay connected during their stay. The Zorba property is gated from the road and open to the private beachfront and sea. A full staff is onsite daily to provide daily housekeeping, rake the sand, and care for our guests. Security is onsite at night to keep an eye on the property so guests can relax. ​The property is guests only.



What is the best way to get from Cancun Airport to our homes?

The best way to get to Zorba Tulum Beach Homes is by shuttle. We can make the arrangements for you. The cost is $190 USD for one way and $360 USD return. This rate is per shuttle and can transport up to 10 passengers.

Your shuttle will have a sign with your name to greet you at the airport and bring you right to our property. You can request a stop at the grocery store on the way for an added fee of $30 (max 1 hr stop). 

Car seats are also complimentary by request. 

Luxury transfers available by request. 


What does Zorba mean? 

Zorba is a Greek word and translates to "live each day." We hope you enjoy your time with us and are able to fully immerse yourself in each moment. 


Is Zorba Beach Homes a rental agency? 

No, we are not an agency. We own our collection of homes and care for our guests ourselves. Our guests enjoy full private homes with kitchens and unrestricted access to Tulum beach and the large swimming pool onsite. We greet you when you arrive and are available if you have questions about the area or need anything during your stay. This property is part of the Zorba Collective Hotel Villa Group


Does Zorba host weddings or retreats? 

Yes! We love to host weddings and retreats on our beachfront property. To host a wedding, we require all the villas on the property to be booked so you have full use of the property. It is an amazing location for a family gathering or special occasion. A buyout gives you a full boutique resort property exclusive to your group for your full stay. 

Our Zorba property is also excellent for yoga and corporate retreats. It is peaceful and includes plenty of space for learning and connection. The 6 homes have 18 bedrooms total, each with ensuite bathrooms (except 1), a gorgeous communal pool area, a yoga studio space, and a stunning private beach. 


Where are the homes located on Tulum Beach? 

Zorba is centrally located in the boutique hotel area of Tulum, the most desired location. Our Zorba homes share a large beachfront property at KM9 in the heart of the Tulum Beach area.  The Zorba property is beside Chiringuito, Nest, Be Tulum and Nomade.

Our sister property is called Mahayana Tulum, located at KM8 close to Sanara, La Zebra, Arca and Hartwood. It is only a 10-minute walk between our two properties, along one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!


Our homes are listed on Airbnb, VRBO and through other agencies. When you book through Zorba Beach Homes, you are booking the homes directly, and do not pay any booking fees.

What are the benefits of booking direct?
