This very spacious (optional 3- to- 6 bedroom) Caribbean Beach Villa 'La Casa en el Aire' is a comfortable two-level-house directly on the beautiful sandy beach with palm trees around the house. It features a newly added spectacular roof terrace with lounge area.
The lower level of the house features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room with a large lounging area, a shaded terrace facing the beach and a covered dining aera behind the house facing the garden.
The up-stairs of the house features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge shaded terrace with a bar area and a palapa for the kids. Note: second floor not suitable for very small children - only under permanent adult supervision (balcony gaps). The water pressure is not great in the up-stairs bathrooms, it´s more convenient to shower in the down-stairs bathrooms. Water pressure is a known problem in Mexico, we tried several pressure pumps but the salty and humid air is not favorable for them. but both downsstairs showers offer good water pressure (due to gravity) and have also both cold & hot water.
N E W: We now have WIFI internet available! The signal comes with a micro wave connection from Tizimin, not 100% reliable but working most of the time. Also the use of a NEW AUTOMATIC MOTORROLLER is now included in the rent of the house, only an additional security deposit is need for the motorroller (see photo). It is a lot of fun exploring the village on the motorroller (seats 2 people).
We offer two rental options: The house can be rented entirely (max. 10 adults and 4 kids) or if you have a smaller party, we close the up-stairs bedrooms and you can rent only the lower level plus the kids Palapa (max. 4 adults and 4 kids) - see different pricing options.
Please note that we never rent the house to different parties at the same time!
Please contact for daily rate (4-night-minimum-stay during low season),
7-night-minimum-stay during high season).
The beach is kid friendly as there are no dangerous currents and no steep declines. Enjoy walking the endless virgin beach with its beautiful palm trees.
This spacious Caribbean Beach Villa is located in El Cuyo, a small fishing village in Yucatan. El Cuyo is located in a natural reserve area. It is a paradise for adventurous bird and nature lovers (Flamingos, Frigate birds, Pelicans, Herons, Cranes, Cormorants, Ibises and many more…)
With a little luck you can spot Dolphins from the terraces of the house, mostly during early morning hours.
There is almost no tourism in El Cuyo.
El Cuyo offers 25 miles (40 km) of fine white sand beach, from the house to the east 9 miles (15 km) of virgin beach without any houses but lot’s of beautiful palm trees. Nature lovers will enjoy the tranquility of this location.
From june to september you can take a boat tour to swim with whale sharks near Holbox Island.
There are several Mayan ruins in the area.
You can book tours to see the flamingos. During july and august the enormous sea turtles lay eggs on the beach and hatch.
El Cuyo is not a place with a lot of infrastructure, there are a few restaurants and a few small shops, but no supermarkets or discos. You can buy fresh fish at the harbor and depending on season also shellfish and calamaris.
You need a rental car to get around, public transportation is skatchy and the house is not in the center of the village but located a little further out. Google maps coordinates of the house = 21 30' 55'' N 87 40' 06'' W or 215153 -876684
(the VRBO pin on the map is not correct, you will see our yellow roof terrace on google)
This whole area does experience ocasional power outages, it would be a good idea to bring your own flash light(s). It will also serve you on nightly beach excursions...
Beach is perfect for kiting, kite surfing and windsurfing, but you need to bring your own equipment or contact the local kite school - Humberto Ramirez - via Facebook prior to your stay to insure availability of equipment and classes.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004
perfect getaway for a relaxed stay in paradise far from the hectic world.
Miles of virgin beach with nothing but palm trees and the ocean to disconnect from today´s busy life.
very spaceous and comfortable house directly on the beach, very tranquile and safe location, expectacular views from the 3 terraces, fully equipped kitchen because we love to cook.
Great beach house to share with your friends and family.
Casa an el Aire was the perfect house for our vacation. As a group of kiteboarders, we loved staying right on the beach with the launch spot just a stones throw away. We did yoga every morning either on the rooftop or middle terrace where we could watch the ocean and feel the morning breezes.
The house was just the right size for our large group and had plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable whether eating, lounging or sleeping. The large secured entrance was perfect for storing all of our gear and the outdoor shower and laundry line were ideal for rinsing off and drying anything.
Sarah was wonderful and checked in with us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay.
The little town of El Cuyo was just what we were looking for in our kiteboarding and yoga getaway for a week. The people were very welcoming, we felt very safe, and we loved the authentic feel of the quaint mexican town.
We had wind almost every day of our trip during the month of March which is a great record for a one week stay! In addition to kiteboarding to our hearts desire, we went and explored nearby Cenotes and Mayan Ruins. We'd highly suggest heading out for a day trip to do this. One of the highlights of our week.
All in all, we had a wonderful stay in El Cuyo and we can't wait to go back and stay again in Susanne's beautiful house on the beach.
Mi tercera visita En la Casa en El Aire
La casa sigue con su encanto de siempre y su privilegiado lugar en este pintoresco pueblo que es El Cuyo
La casa posee todas las comodidades para diferentes situaciones, hemos venido 5, 8 y esta ultima vez hasta 11 personas, en ningún momento nos hemos sentido faltos de lugar o incómodos por la cantidad de gente, hay sitio de sobra!!!
El lugar es muy pintoresco, si buscas turismo de masas y movimiento de gente, no es tu lugar. En es sito que se respira tranquilidad las 24 horas del día, no por ello tienes infinidad de cosas que hacer.
Deportes acuáticos de viento, como el kitesurf o windsurf es un lugar privilegiado para ello, sobre todo los meses de invierno donde la temperatura es de 25 a 30 grados y un viento agradable todo el día tanto para estar en la playa como para hacer deporte.
Fantásticos paseos por la playa de muchos kilómetros andando sin encontrar a nadie y observando la fauna del lugar.
Salidas de pesca en las que en pocas horas sacas dos cubos de peces listos para hacer en Barbacoa.
Salidas nocturnas por la playa para observar un cielo estrellado impresionante que en pocos lugares se puede observar.
Excursiones por Yucatan a cenotes y ruinas mayas
Y así te pasan los días hasta que te das cuanta que es tu ultimo día en el lugar y te tienes que ir con mucha tristeza pero dispuesto a volver cuando sea posible.
Las gentes del lugar son amables hasta el infinito, no están contaminados por el turismo de masas y no buscan mas que disfrutes de su privilegiado hogar.
La casa dispone de todas las comodidades si no quieres salir de ella y pretendes hacer vida allí, las barbacoas nocturnas en la terraza de la playa son la mejor situación para disfrutar de la casa y la familia.
Dispone de conexion a Internet tanto para niños y adultos, pero recomiendo olvidarse de eso y disfrutar del lugar!!!!
El Cuyo se encuentra a unos 2:45 o 3 horas del aeropuerto de Cancun, las carreteras cada año son mejores y no hay ningún problema por conducir por la zona, es un lugar seguro en el que nunca nos hemos encontrado en ninguna situación rara.
Yo lo recomiendo para personas que busquen un lugar fuera del turismo de masas y quieran conocer un poquito mejor lo que es Mexico y sus gentes.
SIN DUDA VOLVERE
The location of this rental can't be beat. If it's rest and relaxation you are looking for and want to unplug, El Cuyo is the place for you.
-Right on the beach and few if any people around
- the water is beautiful
- if you like to fish, this is the place. We caught dinner most nights and the locals were really helpful with tips on how they fish.
- can't beat the fresh bread from the bakery daily and if you don't fish, there is a local gentleman, Who sells his daily catch in town and will clean/cut it however you like.
- Sara and Gabriele( the caretakers) were great and answered any questions we had
- Very safe area
- the house needs updating even though the basics are there. It would have been helpful if there was a bottle opener ( for beer/soda)available but there were plenty of dishes and storage containers.
- no comfortable seating inside or outside. Only 2 lounge chairs were available and there were no chairs or any seating available on the upper level so it was basically unusable, which was a shame and an area we specifically discussed we would like to use.
- there was no hot water in the kitchen so we needed to boil water to clean. There was a hot water tank to turn on for the shower and we had hot water to bathe.
- maybe not a con for some but the 3 upstairs bedrooms are separate from the rest of the house so you need to go outside to access. Just something to note if you are a family wanting to be together.
Overall we fell in love with El Cuyo and will return. If you are looking to get away from reality for awhile, this is the place.
If the owners do some updating and provide more comfortable seating all around, we might stay again. There are many options in the area so hopefully the owners will respond to the suggestions.
True "ends of the earth" paradise living. The house is well appointed with spacious indoor and outdoor living. One can catch a glimpse of the sea from most any vantage point inside or out. The caretakers were one of highlights; attentive but never intrusive.
The town itself is about as sleepy as you would imagine a Mexican fishing village to be. One of our favorite parts was buying fresh seafood most every day (shrimp, grouper, ocotpus). There a few restaurants, street food, liquor store, and mini Tiendas scattered around the town.
While you can stop in Tizimin for groceries, I'd strongly advise that you do that in Cancun. The store in Tizimin, while large, was pretty abysmally stocked. Also, make sure to fill up on gas before you head out of Cancun.
Susanne was very communicative and quick to respond to all of our questions. She went out of her way to make sure we had all the information we needed for a very successful vacation. We hope to be back one day!
El cuyo, un lugar que se convirtio en uno de mis favoritos desde que lo conoci. Tiene los mas espectaculares atardeceres que he visto y la gente muy amable.
Estuvimos muy contentos en la casa, es una casa muy grande y comoda, tiene varias habitaciones cada una con un espacio magico y diferente.
Es increible abrir los ojos en la mañana, escuchar el sonido del mar, saber que estas en un lugar unico, apartado de cualquier ciudad con una paz indescriptible, y darte cuenta que no es un sueño. Pues la arena la tienes enfrente, abriendo la puerta de una linda terraza donde todas las mañanas tomamos cafe, y de vez en cuando vimos delfines.
En fin no me queda mas que un muy buen sabor de boca tanto del lugar como de la casa.
El Cuyo is a darling little fishing village along the Emerald coast. The water is tranquil, the beach is uncrowded with beautiful sand, and the starts at night are unlike anything you have seen! The town has few amenities available so it is a good idea to stock up on anything you need in one of the bigger towns before you arrive in El Cuyo. As far as the house is concerned, it is spacious and offers a great location. However, it is time to do a little maintenance. To look it's very best the house needs some painting and it is time to replace some items. The fans are rusty as well as some of the kitchen appliances, which rendered them unusable. The towels and sheets are threadbare. There is only water pressure in the first floor showers, the upstairs showers had no pressure beyond a single dribble. None of these things caused us great discomfort, but a little upkeep could make this a fabulous vacation rental instead of an "just ok" rental. The location is fairly easy for visiting surrounding areas, you need a car, but our adventures to Holbox, Rio Lagartos and Valladolid were great fun. The Yucatan is an amazing vacation locale and we were happy to have had the opportunity to explore and relax in such a gorgeous place.
Beach is perfect for kiting and kite surfing, windsurfing - bring your own equipment.
Mayan ruins: (Ek Balam (1 hour drive), Chichen Itza (2.5 hour drive), various Cenotes (sink holes), colonial cities Izamal and Valladolid, boat trips to Holbox Island (whale sharks, snorkeling, bird watching), Rio Lagartos natural reserve tours available (Flamingo tours, bird watching)
