Great vacation place!

We stayed week in May at Casa Luna Sombra, and could not be happier with the place. There were 4 of us (2 couples), and there was plenty of space for all. The house is very clean and cozy, equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. I was surprised how well the air-conditioning units worked and how fast they cooled the place down, considering it was very hot and humid outside. There is also an outdoor shower that is perfect for after-beach use. The backyard faces the jungle, we hung out there at night listening to the sounds of wilderness. In the mornings we even got to see coatimundi, cute raccoon-like creatures. The houses on both sides of us were unoccupied, so it was quiet and private. The beach is close enough to walk, but you can drive there also. There is a one dollar per day charge because it became a protected area as the sea turtles lay eggs there. We found that Tulum beaches, which are near by are by far superior to any other that we've been to. You just can't beat white sandy beaches and turquoise water. Resort and pizza place there will let you use their palapas and chairs if you buy food or drinks. Also we discovered a great restaurant Mezzanine, a Thai fusion, but has a variety of American dishes too.
The location of the casa was perfect, it was close enough to tourist attractions, yet away from crowds of tourists. We felt very safe there. The town of Chemuyil is right around the corner, and the locals are very friendly. Leos Pizza is good and inexpensive, and most importantly the staff is English-speaking. We had a great experience staying in Casa Luna Sombra, and would love to stay there again. There is so much to explore around that area! Coba ruines, cenotes, Tulum, Akumal, and much more! Thank you, Don and Norma for making the rental experience smooth and easy =)
