Casa Xixim a Private Eco-Resort Outside Tulum, Mexico, on Bahia de Soliman – Now Avaliable for Stays
Casa Xixim is a beautiful villa that combines luxury, sustainability, function, and comfort, located north of Tulum, Mexico, on Soliman Bay. Casa Xixim is an eco-luxe, grid-tied, net-neutral villa that works in harmony with its surroundings while utilizing traditional building practices, modern architecture, and permaculture principles. Highlights of the property include a rooftop hammock lounge – suspended from the photovoltaic solar power array, four suites that open to expansive bay views and a private staff.
Casa Xixim, a 4,800 square foot magical paradise located 20 minutes north of Tulum, Mexico, on the protected private beach of Soliman Bay, is a stunning four-suite villa with expansive views of the pristine bay, coupled with unique architecture and design.
Designed by Specht Architects for San Francisco couple Dave and Jenny Blizzard, Casa Xixim is an eco-resort designed to be fully self-sufficient, immersed in the raw beauty of the environment while offering guests a private pool, beach, on site chef and staff, plus other luxury amenities.
Sustainability is at the core of this project. The architectural aim is to be net neutral, using stacking functions like solar panels that create energy and provide shade.
A narrow path brings visitors through dense vegetation into a grand living/dining/ kitchen space that is fully open to the beach. The transparency of the house allows prevailing winds to flow through and provide cooling while maximizing views of the stunning vistas. The house is powered by a photovoltaic canopy that shades a large rooftop terrace. This terrace also collects rainwater that is filtered and stored for use. Other roof areas are planted with native species that provide insulation and screening. The space also has an artificial wetlands system that is designed to catch water waste and runoff.
Casa Xixim can accommodate up to 12 guests. To book or for more information – click here
