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. There is no phone installed in the house nor wifi internet available. You can get Edge-Internet service thru the local TelCel phone company (prepaid service cards) if you wish. 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.
