Chemuyil house description
Rated #1 on TripAdvisor in the Riviera Maya! Best vacation rental value between Akumal and Tulum - and it's not a condo. Stay in Chan Chemuyil where returning visitors want to be for a more authentic experience.
Casa Marbella in Spanish means 'Beautiful Sea House.' It has a master bedroom with a queen size bed, a second bedroom with two twin beds and a sofa that can convert into either a queen bed or two twin beds. Relax in the swimming pool in the back yard, or hang out in the hammocks on the front patio sipping drinks or spotting birds in the jungle across the street. Casa Marbella is air-conditioned throughout and is equipped with a TV, DVD, WiFi, an IPod docking station, a washing machine, outdoor shower and many other amenities to make your visit comfortable.
There are so many interesting and fun activities close by. The charming village of Chemuyil is located close by for inexpensive places to eat. Akumal beach is only a few minutes drive and has swimming, snorkeling, diving as well as restaurants and shopping. The stunning beach of Xcacel, a protected beach and turtle nesting sanctuary is very close by. This beach was voted one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in Mexico! You'll understand why when you see this untamed natural beauty. You can also enjoy adventures in places like Hidden Worlds or Aktun Chen, visit the Maya Ruins of Tulum or Coba, or go swimming in nearby cenotes.
We also have a management staff that is second to none. They are there for all of your questions but respect your need for privacy. Taste the local flavor while enjoying the luxury of your own pool and private patio at Casa Marbella!

We are a family of six, with children ranging in ages from 18 mo to 9 yrs, and Chan Chemuyil was absolutely perfect for us. We have grown to strongly prefer house/apartment rentals for vacations vs. hotels or resorts because we can make it a 'home away from home'. Perhaps the most remarkable part of our overall experience was Kevin, who sort of serves as the equivalent of a concierge for those who choose to rent a vacation home from Chan Chemuyil. Due to weather-related airline delays, we arrived about 9 hours later than we had intended. Kevin was right there at midnight to open the house for us and schedule a quick yet comprehensive orientation the next day. It was well worth the approximately 1.5 hours, as the result was that we felt like we had a great feel for the lay of the land, the hidden gems, the things to avoid and the things not to miss in Chemuyil, Tulum and Akumal. The house - wonderfully simple. We enjoyed coffee in the morning while watching our kids swim in the pool behind the house. We felt safe and comfortable. As we enjoy cooking and dining in, the kitchen's appointment was a bit spartan, but functional. Air conditioning and fans kept the temperature perfect at the touch of a button. Highlights for our family - Xcacel Beach (perhaps the most beautiful beach I've ever visited), the cenote near Xcacel Beach, snorkeling in Akumal (saw fish, coral, sea turtles and a sting ray), the zip-lining, sky-cycling adventures at Hidden Worlds, the ruins at Tulum, Lucy's home-made ice cream in Akumal and Pizza Leo in Chemuyil.
