El Cuyo apartment description

Dear Travellers in the Yucatan,

we made a very attractive 360 degree virtual tour for you to be able to 'walk thru' our homes and Apartments,the beaches of El Cuyo, the Fishing Port, the Lagoon
and its surroundings. The link is available on this page, or simply send us an email, then we will send it to you as well.


If you dont feel like spending your well deserved vacation in Highrise Hotels, timeshares or condos in Cancun or Playa del Carmen , and you are rather looking for relaxation and recreation in the real Mexico, the unspoilt Caribbean Feeling of El Cuyo may something you should consider.
Puerto del Cuyo is a small, unspoiled Beachtown filled with Cocunut palm trees near Holbox, and is today the only coastal town in the Yucatan which is dotted with palm trees. At all other beaches in the Yucatan, the palm trees were exterminated by a plague some years ago, and were sadly not reforested . Not so in Puerto del Cuyo, here you can still find the Caribbean Feeling mixed with mexican flair that used to be found in every Yucatan Beach town.

Hacienda del Cuyo with Penthouse and Casa Maya Lodge is a private three-story beach house built in colonial spanish style right on the pristine beaches of El Cuyo.It is equipped with air conditioning in the bedrooms, for better sleeping comfort of our guests. The cushioned lounge chairs on the beach and our hammocks invite you for sunbathing and relaxing the Mexican Way. The Villa is surrounded by many coconut palm trees with plenty of natural shade.. From large beach terraces you can admire sunrises and sunsets over the ocean. Up to 8 people find room on the ground floor , up to 4 people in the Penthouse (Floor 2 ) 1 bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, living room, bathrooms with hot water. The Casa Maya Lodge on the 3rd Floor has a Queensize Bed, Bathroom and Kitchenette and Terrace. A tropical garden with a palapa and palm trees invite you for get-togethers.Its ideal for families with children, seniors, singles and adults that don't want to spend their well deserved Vacations on crowded beaches.

' We departed for an adventure through the Americas in May 2012, driving a Toyota Landcruiser HZJ75 and being on the road with our two canine overlanders makes us really happy. We plan to stay on the road until some time in 2015. Starting the adventure in Halifax, exploring wonderful Newfoundland, heading west through Canada, enjoying the summer up in Yukon, the Indian Summer in British Columbia, Centralamerica with all its edgyness and soon Southamerica.'

                          *NEW 360 Virtual Tour available on our Website*

                          We are German Owners living in the Yucatan

                          Puerto del Cuyo is a typical laid back Fisherman's Village away from the crowds.

                          If you are thinking about an eco-tourism adventure or weeks of relaxation and privacy near a ocean with turquoise greenish

                          waters and white sand sprinkled with a beautiful variety of shells,

                          which invite to explore and make long walks on the beach, Hacienda

                          del Cuyo is an option you shouldnt miss. We invite you to walk the

                          beach in front of the Villa in the morning, enjoying a brilliant

                          dawn and during the evening you will be able to see

                          spectacular sunsets on the same beach. This is one of the

                          many advantages to stay at this Villa, as it faces the northern

                          waters, spectacular dawns and sunsets can be watched.

                          And there is more… if you get tired to watch the ocean, we invite

                          you to take a look behind the villa to the south towards Ria

                          Lagartos, where you will find countless pink flamingos, unique in

                          this region, nesting very near in the calm waters of the Lagoon.

                          Other Activities: snorkelling, stargazing, swimming with whale sharks, flamingo and bird watching

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: The best career decision I've made in my life was to come to this beautiful country,....Mexico. I love the country and its people, but their slowness, tardiness and informality in some cases still bothers me, even after 20 years I now live here. You just have to put everything into the balance ... it's a bit hard to explain .... but it's something like if you want a fruit that has no shell or skin, is something ... thats not possible. I was born and educated in Bamberg, Germany and finished my career there. After that, I went to work for the Mouse in Disney World in Orlando Florida and have worked in the German Pavilion at Epcot , .. followed by 2 years at Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Driven by wanderlust ... I then followed the call Mexico's in 1993. I lived for 20 years in Cancun, Mexico, ... and still work part time in 5 star hotels. 12 years ago I started with the first Vacation apartment. We now have 7 and also rent you our Vw Beetle to our guests. We are the owners of these houses and can be reached anytime personally, by phone or by email. In the Competition of the Landlord of the Year in 2011, we made the 3 place, and in 2012 we reached the 1st place. It's a lot of fun with guests, and we are always passing along our longtime experience in Mexico . We look forward hosting you ...

                          Why the Owner Chose El Cuyo:
                          Who do we recommend to rent a vacation home in Yucatan? If you are interested in getting to know the mexican culture, its people the hospitality and its food , is flexible and willing to learn more about the 'Mexican way of Life'and wants to experience more 'Local Flavour'... away from the beaten Tourist path and 5 Star Hotels ..you will enjoy it..come and stay with us. Who should reconsider it? If you are looking to be pampered in a 5 Star All inclusive Hotel and need Buffett style meals , having an English speaking concierge 24 hours a day...then do yourself a favor..and dont renta a vacation home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Hacienda del Cuyo: Working in Cancun´s Hotel Business during the week , on days off, we enjoy travelling in the Yucatan with its fabled culture, away from the city .. and mass tourism. In February 2000, we have come by accident to El Cuyo ... the drive threre was overwhelming ... over a reddish pink lagoon with flamingos, the road led to the village .. further to a Mayan pyramid with a lighthouse built on top of it. The roads in El Cuyo are made of sand and coconut palm trees everywhere in the quaint Village. Miles of fine white sand beach with no tourists but lots of seashells.. as far as the eye can see. We were delighted, and then spent every free weekend in El Cuyo. One day, someone offered us a small house for sale. There was at that time only a ground floor. We immediately fell in love with this 'rough diamond' and have restored it with much passion. we didnt think of it as a rental business at that time. After some time, we have added the 2nd floor Penthouse and te Rustic Casa Maya Lodge. We still spend every free weekend in El Cuyo ... now with our 2 young Kids... Hacienda Antigua We acquired it in 2002 and 2012, lovingly converted it to the Hacienda Antigua. Outside walls are handmade of a natural stone facade by Mayan Craftsmanship. Inside a Mayan artist from Izamal Hand-painted colonial decorations on the Walls .Lots of heavy wrought iron was used inside the Hacienda. The Beach terrace covers a big Pyramid shaped palapa , so our guests can always hide in the cooling shade of this palm thatched masterpiece.
