We started traveling to the Caribbean in 2004, and quickly fell in love with the gorgeous water, beaches and warm sunshine. We live in Michigan and experience some pretty harsh winters, so we cherish every minute we get to spend in the sun! We are self-diagnosed beach bums, and adore the fact that there are literally over a dozen of the very best beaches in the Caribbean within a thirty minute drive of the casa! Depending on our mood, we can choose one for pampering, kayaking, snorkeling, sunning, socializing..you name it! Plus, we have all the modern conveniences of home, so we never feel as if we are 'roughing it'. There are plenty of large grocery stores as well as small local fruit and vegetable stands. We love this area of Mexico, and think you will, too. We're pleased to share our well-appointed and comfy home and the Yucatan with you!

Mark or Rigina Monk purchased this house in 2008

We purchased our lovely casa in 2008 after traveling all over the Caribbean in search of the best place for a vacation home. We landed in this charming little neighborhood and must say, the location cannot be beat! Chan Chemuyil is a short drive away from the most gorgeous white sand beaches we have ever seen! The nearby towns of Chemuyil, Akumal and Tulum all have their distinct charms, and this diversity is what brings us back, over and over. Less than ninety minutes to Playa del Carmen and Cancun, the larger city life is there to experience, with nightclubs, shopping, theatres and sightseeing, if you want to experience urban Mexicana. We hope that whatever you choose to do during your stay, you enjoy it as much as we and our neighbors do!

Casa de Risa is one of the few homes in the neighborhood with a swimming pool, and it is the largest. We have enlarged the kitchen significantly to allow for comfortable meal prep and of course, entertaining! The home is equipped with all of the comforts of home and is decorated to inspire relaxation and happiness. All of our furniture is handcrafted by local artisans and everything in our home was individually chosen to reflect the spirit of Life, Love and Laughter. Enjoy!

WONDERFULL CASA

  • 5 of 5
Such a wonderful place to stay. My mother and I rented the house the beginning of December 2013. The house had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The house stayed cool even without using A.C. I think this has a lot to do with the time of year. I am sure in the summer months the A.C. would be a must. The pool was nice but a little on the cold side, probably due to the time of year. We felt very safe in the house and the neighborhood. It was a short walk to a beautiful beach. The kitchen had all top end utensils. It was nice to be able to make free calls back to the U.S. as well. The only thing we were missing is being right on the beach to listen to the waves at night, but if this house were right on the water I am sure it would be super pricey. We really enjoyed our stay and so close to a beautiful beach, Xel-Ha and Tulum.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much your review!
We are very pleased that you enjoyed the casa with your Mother, and glad that you were able to spend some quality time together in the sun and sand! We agree; Xcacel beach is quite possibly one of the most perfect beaches in the area- so private and breathtakingly beautiful. So happy that we were able to share it with you! Hope to see you again!

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to Mexico and I must say I loved it! Casa De Risa was incredible. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you needed for your stay. It was very clean and I felt right at home. Its a short walk to the beach and they even provide you with a cooler and a cart to lug all your belongs. My children loved the pool. It was nice to come home after an action packed day and sit and relax on the porch. The neighbors are super friendly. This is definitely a great place to stay and we hope to get back asap!

EXCELLENT FAMILY VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our home away from home in Chan Chemuyil Mexico. The home was comfortable, clean and perfect for our needs. The owners were delightful to work with and answered our questions immediately. We would highly recommend this property to others. It was a great launching point for our adventures traveling the countryside to see Mayan ruins, the beach, and nearby towns. We loved how it was away from tourist areas in a nice quiet and small community. It was a wonderful respite from our sightseeing and we enjoyed our time relaxing in the home. We highly recommend visiting the ruins at Coba, Muyil and Tulum. There is much to offer in the town of Tulum.

HOW AN I DO BETTER THAN ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS?

  • 5 of 5
It seems everything has been said about this wonderful little paradise within a paradise, but I will try:you will feel like you are in an episode of The Life of The Rich and Famous: your own pool, your own sun roof! The decoration of the house is refined and elegant ( just look at the ceiling fans, details)! And you will feel at home, as you belong there, because you have earned it by all your hard work in real life.The beach, a short walk away, is also practically yours, since it is not a commercial beach but a turtle sanctuary. Sun, sand, sea and a Casa de Risa to call yours for the time you choose: yep, it is the Life of the ( not so ) Rich and ( not at all) Famous.
