Casa Maare---at pristine Xcacel Beach and so close to Tulum ruins, jungle cenotes, Xelha Eco-park and more--- it's your comfy, cozy home base for a great vacation. Located between Akumal and Tulum, in the Chan Chemuyil fraccionamiento (subdivision) near Xcacel Beach, Casa Maare is furnished in a casual style using natural, sustainable materials such as bamboo with accents of Mexican folk art. The casa has a traditional outdoor pergola for shade in the front, beach towels, a cooler, and beach chairs to enhance your time at Xcacel beach.
Casa Maare's property managers, Debra and Cowboy, will greet you upon arrival and take you for a tour of the area so you can start enjoying your stay right away. They'll be available in the neighborhood to assist you with activity planning or whatever you might need during your stay.
Casa Maare has all the comforts of home---soft sheets, soft towels and a/c. Casa Maare comfortably accomodates 2 - 4 people, with a basic kitchen, indoor or outdoor seating and a sectional couch in the adjacent living area. A stay at Casa Maare is comfort and adventure at an affordable rate.
Casa Maare is situated in a unique community of brightly colored homes populated by locals and Canadian and US expats and part-timers. The neighborhood, Chan Chemuyil, is surrounded by jungle filled with birds and animals and also features two cenotes, one deep enough for a cooling plunge.
Chan Chemuyil is a short walk from the Chemuyil pueblo and the pristine Xcacel beach and cenote, and is just minutes from ocean diving and snorkeling, and the Yucatan's famous cenotes, a system of underwater caves and caverns for the more experienced diver. A short drive takes you to Yucatan adventures of a lifetime---Xel-Ha and Hidden Worlds Ecoparks, the Tulum and Coba ruins, The Jungle Place, and the Sian Kaan Biosphere.

About the owner: I'm a designer living on the Central Coast of California specializing in the use of sustainable materials for home interiors. I have been traveling all over Mexico for years and recently had the opportunity to purchase a little house in an amazing part of the Yucatan. It's my dream to share this wonderful part of the world with other travelers. I named the place Casa Maare because in the Yucatec language, 'maare' is slang for 'wow!' I mean, wow, I never thought I'd have a house in Mexico.
Why the Owner Chose Chemuyil: The Tulum area of Quintana Roo is unique in all the world with an astonishing number of cultural, ecological, oceanographic and archeological wonders to explore and enjoy. The Yucatan peninsula offers something for all kinds of travelers---warm, sunny weather, calm, beach time relaxing, adventurous diving and birding, family-friendly ecological parks, historical tours of the ruins, festive dining and shopping, and more. It's an amazing place with a vibrant history and culture and I am happy to be able to share it with other travelers.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Casa Maare and its neighborhood of Chan Chemuyil are unique in that they are modest, Mexican-style homes originally built as staff housing for a resort that was never built on the nearby Xcacel beach. The beach was declared a sea turtle sanctuary and the homes languished until a trio of enterprising investors re-packaged and marketed these little gems to locals and vacationers. Built to last, these casitas have weathered 2 hurricanes since 2001. Most owners purchased since 2007 and the tract has evolved into the techni-colored rows and various remodeled facades you see today.
When you vacation at Casa Maare, you'll enjoy many of the amenities of a resort---a/c, comfortable furnishings, lively Mexican decor---but also have the flexibility to prepare your own meals in a simple kitchen, entertain in your own living quarters and private patio, sleep to the sound of ocean breezes and wake to the sounds of tropical birds in the jungle across the street.
Our property management team keeps an office in the neighborhood and are on call to assist you in any way. For additional fees, you can have groceries delivered, extra maid service, or massage.
