My wife & I stayed down in February for two weeks & had a blast. The beach is a short walk, fantastic snorkeling, the town is a short ride, restaurants, grocery store, internet, video rentals, etc. Amazing scuba diving spots are a short ride away, ocean reef & caves, Mayan ruins, too much to list it all!!
Location was perfect, just far enough away from all the tourist congestion, but if you need a beach with a bar it's available.
Casa's were neat & clean, we even had the maintenance guy stop by to see if every thing was O.K.
More than enough room for four adults.
Recommend all to check this place out. We can't wait to get back down again!
Thanks so much, we'll see you again soon!
If you are looking for a quiet secluded Mexico gateway, this is the place! While everything is very close (10 mins. to Akumal, 15 mins. to Tulum and a 15 mins. walk, or 2 mins. drive, to the nearest pueblo of Chemuyil), this location provides the laid-back feeling that is simply not present in the all-inclusive resorts and hotels.
I would recommend renting a car for the length of your stay because there are no grocery stores or eating places in the small village where this casa is located. However, in Chemuyil you will find several small groceries (called "Super" by the locals); a couple of markets to buy fresh (very fresh and yummy!) fruits and veggies; three good restaurants which cater to expats (while prices are still much lower than in similar restaurants in Tulum or Akumal) and a number of food carts/local eateries/holes in the wall, which I highly recommend. Super tasty and very cheap!
The Xcacel Beach is very beautiful, not crowded at all, and is a popular place with the locals too, which contributes to the Mexico experience. However, it is open only from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. If early morning walks or runs on the beach are important to you, you may wish to consider alternatives. I was unpleasantly surprised by this.
Overall, a great and affordable place to stay, relax and get to know Mexico a little better.
Fell in love with the hammocks in the private backyard, while watching stars at night with a bit of tequila - heard and observed some wildlife (not dangerous, just interesting) - everything was superbly well equipped (kitchen, bathroom, linens etc..) and intelligently organized; ei, shower outside = no sand inside, gallons of fresh water, comfortable beds (Pat still wishes for the bed at Luna Sombra). We saw King Angel Fish, stingrays, all kinds of tang while snorkeling near live coral at Xcalak,. Ate fresh coconuts from the beach too. Our son of 11 was comfortable & secure at Luna Sombra. It is suspected that he enjoyed the beaches , cenotes, climate, and hammocks more than his parents.
My husband and I had a great time at Casa Luna Sombra. It was very clean and comfortable with everything you need, including lots of beach gear. We also liked that there were plenty of movies to choose from in the evenings after a day in the sun.
There is so much to do in the area. Xcacel beach is a short walk and perfect for those who like natural and not so crowded beaches. But if you want a beach with restaurants and action, that's nearby too! Our favorite was Akumal beach where you're guaranteed to see sea turtles every time. We also loved exploring a couple cenotes. There are many to choose from in the area.
Having a car is always ideal but if you aren't going to have one like us... we found it was really easy to take the "collectivos" (Comfortable mini-buses with A/C) It's a short walk to the main road from the house and the collectivos pass every couple of minutes.
We would definitely recommend this house to all! Thank you Don & Norma. We had such an enjoyable and relaxing vacation at your place.
Its a very sweet and lovely Mexican house, in a very quiet town.
We rent it for our Honeymoon, we didn't to go to a busy Resort. We love quietness and being like at Home, And really experience Mexican Life.
There is a lot to do close by, Caves, Cenotes, Beaches,
Our favorite beaches was Akumal and swimming with Turtles. Dos Ojos very nice cenotes. Etc... it will take long time tell everything, why you don't go check by yourself.
If like us you like a quiet vacation renting a little casa, is the way to go.
Casa Luna Sombra is a sweet little mexican casa. Don and Norma have done a beautiful job making it comfortable and relaxing. It is a good choice for those seeking a more complete experience of the area. We spent our time exploring local Cenote's , beaches and ruins. All within an hour of this casa. We swam with the Sea turtles at Akamal and climed the ruins at Coba.The mexican locals are all very friendly ,but I will brush up on my spainish for our next visit.
I would rate this trip with any we have taken to Europe for relaxation and beauty.
I let friends know about it with the knowledge that we may be competing for time there in the future.
Thanks Don and Norma.
