This very spacious ( 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms) Caribbean Beach Villa
"La Casa en el Aire" is a Kiter´s and Yogi´s Dream!
It is a comfortable and airy two-level-house directly on the beautiful sandy beach with palm trees around the house. Assemble your kite on the terrace and take off kiting directly in front of the house!
The house also features a spectacular roof terrace with lounge area, perfect setting for your Yoga sessions too! look at the video posted it has been filmed in our house during a women kite and yoga retreat at our house in 2017.
The lower level of the house has 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. 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 an 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 a base rental price for up to 7 people and for bigger parties we charge US $ 25/night per extra person (max. 10 adults and 4 kids).
Please note that we never rent the house to different parties at the same time!
Please note that there is a 4-night-minimum-stay during low season, and
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. Which also implies that there does NOT exist a touristic infrastructure either.
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. The closest is Ek Balam a 1,5h drive away.
You can book tours to see the flamingos in the village. 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 only a few small family oriented restaurants and a few small shops, but nothing fancy, also no supermarkets nor 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 (you will see our yellow roof terrace on google).
Please note that El Cuyo is "cash only" but the closest ATM is an hour drive away in Tizimín.
This whole area does experience ocasional power outages, We recommend you to bring your own flash light(s). It will also serve you on nightly beach excursions...
Beach is perfect for kite surfing and windsurfing, but you need to bring your own equipment or contact the local kite school prior to your stay to insure availability of equipment and classes.
