Property description

Welcome to Casa Kaana where you will experience the charm and relaxation of the Yucatan fishing village of Chelem with all the comforts of home. Just 75 steps from the beach and a short walk or bike ride to the village Centro.

Take a dip in the pool and lounge on the pool terraza or house balcony with an afternoon beverage. Enjoy pescado frito (fried fish), ceviches, and Mayan food specialties at a variety of local restaurants, or cook up a great meal in the full kitchen or on the poolside grill using ingredients from the local market, panaderia, and tortilleria.

The house features a second floor Master suite with Queen bed and newly-renovated full bath, air conditioning and direct access to wraparound balcony.

The downstairs has a Queen bedroom, a bedroom with two Twin beds, living area, dining area, kitchen, and a newly-renovated bathroom. All rooms in the home have ceiling fans. There is also a separate second floor entrance to the wraparound balcony. The pool, terraza deck, and grill area are accessed from both the kitchen and Twin bedroom.

The Gulf coast village of Chelem (6,000 people) swells to about 15,000 in the months of July and August and during the Easter and Christmas seasons. These vacation seasons bring local carnivals, performances and additional vendors. For the rest of the year, the village is quiet with residents earning their living fishing the seas of the Gulf and operating village shops, cocinas economicas, and restaurants.

You can spend your days with relaxing beach walks or drive to other nearby villages such as Chicxulub or Telchac Puerto. If you feel more active, you can spend time in the port city of Progeso, a city of 50,000 residents less than a 10-minute drive away or exploring the museums, art and culture of Merida, the Yucatan capital of nearly 800,000 residents. If you are interested in the Mayan culture, there are many ruin sites nearby including Xcambo, Dzibilchaltun, Uxmal and the Puuc Route, Chichen Itza and Ek Balam.

We offer rentals by the week, month, or longer. If you are interested in escaping the cold seasonal weather, consider Casa Kaana in the village of Chelem.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: My husband and I love to travel. We always enjoy renting apartments and homes in the areas we visit to really feel like we are 'living there' even for a short period of time. Our first visits to Mexico were to the Mayan Riviera but it felt too built up. Exploring other Mayan ruin sites led us to Merida, the Gulf Coast and ultimately Chelem. We love the village vibe plus the proximity of Progreso and Merida when we want to do something more.

Why Chelem:
Like many busy people, we enjoy (and need!) a beach vacation sometimes, but we also like the option of other things to do. Chelem is a great base for exploring the Yucatan peninsula and with a cultural city like Merida so close by, we feel like we get the benefits of city life with the added bonus of a breezy, sunny, relaxing place at Casa Kaana. Kaana is a Mayan word that translates as sky or heavens. And when we are up on the wraparound terrace the sky seems to go on forever.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We also love to eat and it's pretty cool to be able to walk or bike over to Chelem Centro to pick up breakfast pastries from one of the local panaderias, enjoy the freshest fish you can imagine at restaurants or cocinas economicas (you'll literally watch the fisherman bring in their catch) or experiment with cooking our own Mexican meals with ingredients from the mercado. We've also explored some of the Mayan ruin sites, caves and cenotes in the area and there are lots more to see. And of course it's great to return to the pool and relax among the coconut trees.
