Bejuco House: Tulum Encapsulated in a Gorgeous Jungle Getaway
Nestled within the jungles of Tulum is a vacation getaway that perfectly encapsulates the region’s free-spirited essence. Sophisticated, bohemian, rustic, relaxed, cool: Bejuco House is all of those things and much more. The new addition to the Villas by Journey Mexico portfolio is grand without being ostentatious, stunning but not garish.
Concealed by lush vegetation, this three-bedroom Tulum villa is hidden from the eyes of the outside world. Its designers cleverly utilized natural materials to blend the building into its surroundings, adding to the beauty of nature without taking anything away. Inside, you’ll find old shiplap walls, stone floorings, and eye-catching details carved from upcycled wood.
The open-plan diner-kitchen-living space is a particular highlight. Light and breezy (essential for those gorgeous Tulum summers), the space is replete with stunning design details. In front of an elegantly comfortable U-shaped sofa sits the trunk of a palm tree, seemingly acting as a supporting column. Behind, the wall is covered with planks of artfully distressed wood on which sits a subtle yet arresting rope art piece.
Of course, most vacationers will be spending the majority of their waking hours outside, enjoying the fresh air and gentle rustling of the jungle vegetation. And it’s outside that Bejuco House truly excels.
There, sits an oasis — a hidden Eden which feels both rustic and luxurious. Perhaps its most notable feature is the elegant dipping pool which leads right up to one of the villa’s bedrooms. Those lucky enough to be staying in that room can easily go from waking up to a morning swim in two steps.
After a refreshing dip, morning coffee can be enjoyed on the rustic pool-side chairs before moving to the al-fresco dining area for breakfast. The rest of the day should be spent either at the white-sand beach located right next to the villa or exploring the ancient Maya ruins for which Tulum is famous.
In the evening, return home for a delicious dinner under the dappled light created by the towering palm trees as you listen to the local wildlife sing its sunset song.
Children — and those young at heart — will also love the rustic, Crusoe-esque tree house which sits among the canopies. This cute hideaway is the perfect place to entertain the little ones with stories of adventure before bedtime.
