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) and access to all terraces - 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 (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.

Perfect House for a Kiteboarding Getaway
We were five adults and two children who travelled to El Cuyo for a week of kitesurfing. This house could not have been more perfect. From the very start, property manager Sara was lovely and extremely helpful in showing us around the house and offering tips about the town. She was always available if we needed anything or had any questions. The house itself is open and airy with lots of room... a bedroom for everyone and good common spaces as well. There was a large table and many chairs where we could sit outside to eat. There were lounge chairs on the lower level, second level and even on the rooftop. We were able to launch our kites directly in front of the house and there was safe, secure outdoor storage for our gear at night (although I think it probably would have been perfectly fine just in the yard... El Cuyo is a very safe, sleepy town). An outdoor tap and shower were perfect for washing off the salt and sand before entering the house. Other nice touches were plenty of towels, a large refillable water jug, and several new hammocks for lounging on the decks. Owner Susanne was great to deal with and sent lots of helpful information before our arrival. We loved our time here and would stay again.
Well designed beach house with all the amenities on a pristine beach
We loved our time in El Cuyo and at this house. Sara and Gabriel were wonderful and very attentive. The house was beautiful, comfortable and with everything we could want. The beach was spectacularly beautiful. We hope to be back soon!
Beautiful views, Beautiful house, great trip!
I stayed for 5 nights in Susanne's lovely beach house with my husband and two children (8 & 15). We came via Valladolid. Susanne gave us very detailed directions and we had no problem finding her house or getting to the Cancun airport from El Cuyo.
Susanne was lovely, corresponding with me before the trip and ensuring her property managers would be expecting us when we arrived. The property managers gave us a thorough tour of the house when we arrived and were quite nice and professional. Sarah speaks a little English which helped.
The house was very big and had glorious views especially from the upper floors. Yoga on the roof at sunrise was nice and it's a lovely time to hear and see the birds.
The beds seemed comfortable and clean. Although some new bedsheets would be a good investment as they are all looking pretty old.
The kitchen has a lot of supplies. The things we lacked were: salt/pepper, sugar, matches, ... the kind of things that you don't bring with you on a trip and that you don't want to have to buy for 5 days. These little touches would go a long way too.
The bathrooms were clean. We only showered upstairs so can't comment on other guests reports of hot water problems in the downstairs. The kitchen didn't seem to have hot water. The property manager did tell us it wasn't potable but we were provided with a large jug of drinking water.
The beach was gorgeous and many thanks to the El Cuyo group who have been doing regular beach clean ups. If you stay here, try to do your part and take some plastic off the beach when you go walking.
It appears to be a healthy beach full of interesting sea shells. The seaweed wasn't too bad the week we were there but this comes and goes. There weren't many people on the beach which was very peaceful.
We were lucky enough to see dolphins on our last day and a flick of flamingoes fly overhead. Magical.
Swimming was really fun, great for playing in the waves. And the water was warm.
The town of El Cuyo is small and we met some shop owners and tour operators who were all quite nice and welcoming. We bought fresh bread from a fellow on his bike one evening and my daughter loved the fresh tortillas.
We took a daytrip to Holbox but it was a long drive and not our thing. It was too busy there for us and noisy with golf carts and construction. A long expensive trip with not a lot of pleasure. I would stay local in El Cuyo or Rio Lagartos for a better day trip. next time.
A great place all around!
Great House Directly on the Beach
The village of El Cuyo is quiet and low-key, and seemingly at the edge of the world, which was just what we wanted.
The house was great, particularly the second floor which has three bedrooms, two baths (plus a potential additional bedroom called the Kid’s Palapa) and a large open terrace shaded from the sun by a palapa roof, complete with a fun swing hanging from the rafters. First floor was loft-like with one large open room consisting of an open kitchen / living room area with two bedrooms opening off to the side. One of these rooms has a private bathroom with shower. All other bedrooms have shared bathrooms. All beds were tolerably comfortable and the second floor bedroom overlooking the ocean has a hanging swing bed that is very pleasant. The white sandy beach was literally steps from the house down a little path through some scrub. Shells galore and almost no people. A few doors down is the Kiteboarding school, and in the afternoons when the wind pics up there are several kiteboarders out on the water (fun to watch). Owner Susanne was a good communicator, was prompt in answering my questions and returning our security deposit. Caretakers Sarah and Gabriel were very attentive and checked in on us several times during our stay. They were also able to help us by making introductions to a man who fixed our flat tire and to Luis, who took us around town to point out the bakery, bodegas, vegetable and meat sellers, and made us acquainted with the fish monger. Luis also arranged for us to go out on a tour of the lagoon with a local captain on his boat. Our only complaint with the house is that we wished it had additional furniture. The first floor living room has a large built-in banquette structure of concrete and wooden stats with inadequate cushions and a amoebic shape that defied sitting comfortably. The second floor terrace desperately needs a casual seating area with comfortable sofa/lounge chairs and possible a dining table and chairs. The roof terrace has gorgeous views all the way to the lagoon, but there were only two wooden chairs and a little side table there to sit on. Some shade in the form of a palapa would be a great For a 5 bedroom house there should be enough seating on all levels for everyone. All rooms have locks you should lock all doors and close shutters when you leave the house. Large safe on ground floor to store valuables. Loved the house & location, and would definitely stay here again! Love El Cuyo!
Perfect location on endless beach with aall comforts. Highly recommended.
We were 7 people and the house was almost too large for us, 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. On the beach. Very cosy and well kept. One of the best places i have been, but i only been in 60 countres so far. We saw dolphins while eating breakfast, and jumping manta rays while playing games on the beach. El cuyo for president!
Como siempre todo muy bien. Nos da gusto los nuevos ventiladores y mantenimiento que le han dado.
Es importante revisar el refrigerador no enfría bien, el mosquitero que da a la terraza (permite la entrada de mosquitos). Por último, sería practico contar con "paquetes" de servicios de limpieza o asistencia general para estandarizar precio y calidad. Consideramos el costo alto por servicios irregulares. También una lista de contactos de prestadores de servicios para actividades en el Cuyo (p.ej pesca, windsurf, etc).
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)
