Chemuyil house description

Explore the wonders of the Riviera Maya with this colorful, welcoming casa as your home base! Say goodbye to resort crowds, 'saving' beach chairs, long lines and organized group activities. The only bracelet you will wear is the one you make of shells collected after a day of seacombing.
Wake up with the sun or sleep in a little late- you're on Caribbean time! Immerse yourself in a truly authentic experience for the senses by visiting one of the many local restaurants serving delicious Yucatan dishes! Relax with a refreshing cocktail while cooling off in the private, large pool while the kids splash and have a ball. Explore the enchanted world of the world-renown Meso American coral reef as you glide effortlessly on the surface of the Caribbean, swimming next to sea turtles, schools of fish and exotic coral formations. (Xcacel Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico, is a short walk away). Climb the ruins and learn about historical Chichen Itza, the ancient Mayan-built civilization that still stands today. The possibilities are endless, and at the end of the day, retreat to your cheery, comfortable and relaxing home away from home. We've thought of everything you need to make your stay comfortable and stress free..All that's missing is YOU! Come and discover why everyone loves Casa de Risa!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We started traveling to the Caribbean in 2004, and quickly fell in love with the gorgeous water, beaches and warm sunshine. We live in Michigan and experience some pretty harsh winters, so we cherish every minute we get to spend in the sun! We are self-diagnosed beach bums, and adore the fact that there are literally over a dozen of the very best beaches in the Caribbean within a thirty minute drive of the casa! Depending on our mood, we can choose one for pampering, kayaking, snorkeling, sunning, socializing..you name it! Plus, we have all the modern conveniences of home, so we never feel as if we are 'roughing it'. There are plenty of large grocery stores as well as small local fruit and vegetable stands. We love this area of Mexico, and think you will, too. We're pleased to share our well-appointed and comfy home and the Yucatan with you!

Why the Owner Chose Chemuyil:
We purchased our lovely casa in 2008 after traveling all over the Caribbean in search of the best place for a vacation home. We landed in this charming little neighborhood and must say, the location cannot be beat! Chan Chemuyil is a short drive away from the most gorgeous white sand beaches we have ever seen! The nearby towns of Chemuyil, Akumal and Tulum all have their distinct charms, and this diversity is what brings us back, over and over. Less than ninety minutes to Playa del Carmen and Cancun, the larger city life is there to experience, with nightclubs, shopping, theatres and sightseeing, if you want to experience urban Mexicana. We hope that whatever you choose to do during your stay, you enjoy it as much as we and our neighbors do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa de Risa is one of the few homes in the neighborhood with a swimming pool, and it is the largest. We have enlarged the kitchen significantly to allow for comfortable meal prep and of course, entertaining! The home is equipped with all of the comforts of home and is decorated to inspire relaxation and happiness. All of our furniture is handcrafted by local artisans and everything in our home was individually chosen to reflect the spirit of Life, Love and Laughter. Enjoy!
