BEACHFRONT NEW HOUSE IN QUAINT FISHING VILLAGE

El Cuyo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Tana Pepem, or "House of Butterflies" in Mayan, is a spacious beachfront house ideal for families or friends wanting to relax and enjoy nature. Only 2.5 hours from Cancun, it is easily accessible from its international airport. Perfect for long meals, beach walks, shell seeking, bird watching, and dreamy sunsets.

El Cuyo is a small, non-touristic fishing village in the uppermost tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, within the natural reserve of Río Lagartos, close to several Mayan ruins, cenotes and colonial towns. We recommend renting a car in order to tour the area and feel the culture. It is a very safe and quiet town that allows visitors to witness and live rural Mexico. All restaurants serve local cuisine, seafood being the specialty!

The house is built so that all rooms have a view of the ocean. Kitchen and living room look out to the outdoor beachfront terrace equipped with lounge bed and hammocks. The downstairs bedroom is in the back, but built on a higher level with indoor ocean view windows. Upstairs bedroom is completely private with its own oversized terrace with lounge bed, dressing room and bathroom.

There are many fun activities at El Cuyo, including swimming, tours to see flamingos, salines, shark-whales (July to Sept), fishing, ATV rentals, and many other outdoor activities.

Yahaira and Gerardo live in Cancun but sought out the perfect beach in the area to get away from all the hussle and worries and just RELAX. We built this house in 2007 and go every chance we get! Our 4-year old daughter Andrea is a big fan.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

We've been visiting the area since more than 10 years ago, since good friends already had a vacation home here. We love the place and as soon as the first opportunity opened, we bought an oceanfront lot and Yahaira's best friend designed the house entirely to our taste and needs. It's good to know arquitects! We built the house in 2007.

Relaxation. El Cuyo es a place where you can definitely get away from it all- it's another reality. Whether you choose to stay at home all day and just lounge around, or you decide to be adventurous in the nearby natural reserve, you definitely RELAX.

beautifull house in marvelous village. Maison fantastique

We've been there 2 families with kids from 2 to 11. The house is big and everything you might need inside. Good beds, very clean and convenient.The house is exactly like shown. We had stormy weather and even in those conditions, we all loved the place. I can't tell how the village is, because it's something so unusual that you need to be in the place to understand : it seems time stopped there 50 years ago ! We'll come back for sure.

SUPERBE MAISON ! Maison magnifique, spacieuse (nous y étions à l'aise à 2 familles), très propre et pratique, le moindre détail a été pensé pour rendre la maison agréable. Comme elle se situe sur la plage, elle est bien aérée (pas besoin de climatisation pendant notre séjour), à 10mn à pied du village. La situation sur la plage est exceptionnelle et la terrasse permet d'être à l'exterieur tout en étant protégé du soleil, ce qui est appréciable avec des enfants.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis et le village est étonant : on s'y sent très loin de la mondialisation ! A proximité, ne loupez pas le village de las coloradas avec ses flamands, lagunes et montagnes de sel ainsi que le site de Ek Balam, où on peut monter sur les pyramides dans la jungle.
Nous reviendrons dès que possible !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We are very happy to hear that you will come back to enjoy El Cuyo... a great place for families to rejoice together at the same time that you explore the real Mexico.

A Secret Gem

We really enjoyed our stay in El Cuyo and Tana Pepem. The house is smartly designed and very comfortable. It is open and airy. It is right on the beach on the edge of town. After living in the city, the stars at night are really remarkable.

The town of Cuyo is very charming. El Cuyo is not really a tourist town, which for me part of its charm. Gabrielle and Sara will put you in touch with locals who will take you fishing, boating, sightseeing and provide you with the most amazing fish. We really felt that we were taken care of. I highly recommend Tana Pepem for a relaxing, tranquil vacation.

THIS IS THE IDEAL FAMILY VACATION DESTINATION!

My husband and I wanted a relaxing place where we could spend time with our children, who we hardly ever get to spend quality time with given our hectic work schedule and school/after-school activites at home. The beach was perfect for the kids (2 and 4), clean, calm and warm. The house was spotless and safe. The owners of the house, Yahaira and Gerardo, had someone check in with us on ocassion to make sure we had all that we needed and even arranged to have someone cook freshly-caught lobster for us-- the most delicious meal ever, just amazing! My children were entertained all day either in the kiddy pool, the ocean, looking for seashells along the beach. By the way, the beach is very private, you don't see many people walking around. Once the kids were asleep, this was the perfect setting to just sit and enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the sound of the ocean. We highly recommend this spot for some peace and quiet along with lots of quality time with your family.

Great great vacation!

We rent this house for a week and everything was perfect. We are a family with two girls (10 and 14). Everybody loved the location: a small and quiet village where you can find all you need to cook or do some activities.
The house, just in front of the sea, is beautiful, well decorated and offers all the facilities you need.
But there's something more! The couple who rent the house is so generous and attentive to all your needs.
It's a safe and wonderful place and we were... sad to quit!

Just rent it!!

The Beach is just Amazing in El Cuyo, we could walk forever and never see anyone. If you would like to get away from the tourists in Cancun, this is the place to be. We loved the quaint village of El Cuyo, the locals were very friendly and helpful, and the small home buisness restaurants were just great! The food was fantastic. The house is located right on the beach and Sara the housekeeper was always available to take care of our needs or troubles, we had some power and water issues, however she resolved them as quick as possible.The home is very secure and has all the basic amenities, however bring yourself some books or board games for entertainment in the evenings. The balcony off the master bedroom is a great place to spend a night sleeping under the stars... absolutely amazing.
We would recommend this home to anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing vacation surrounded by nature and the sea at its Best!
