About Leah Schryver

Canada is COLD! And Alberta winters are FREEZING! That was one of the determining factors in deciding to purchase our vacation home in Chan Chemuyil. We LOVE to travel and we LOVE the Mayan Riviera. The beaches are spectacular, the people friendly, the culture amazing and what a better place to go to relax and get away from it all. We are the Schryvers from Radway, Alberta, Canada. My husband owns his own painting company and I am in the teaching profession so that has enabled us to travel quite frequently. We have two boys ages 6 and 3 that we hope to give as many cultural experiences throughout their lifetime as possible. We have made this Casa our 'Home Away From Home'....and invite you to enjoy the place that we love. This house is well equipped to handle families with young children.

Leah Schryver purchased this house in 2010

Why Leah Schryver chose Chan Chemuyil

We were in awe with Chan Chemuyil after visiting for 10 days back in 2008. After taking a few more trips to Quintana Roo we decided to take the plunge and purchase in this region. It has been one of the best 'crazy' decisions we've made. Everytime we travel we go on a new adventure. To us a vacation means relaxing so if it takes us 10 years to explore the whole region, so be it! You will definately want to return after experiencing the comfort and beauty of Casa Calida.

What makes this house unique

When we purchased this Casa it was very much in need of upgrades. It was our first 'New Home' and it was very exciting to pick out, design and purchase everything that we wanted for it. From picking out the towels and bedding to designing the furniture, we wanted it to feel like home. We wanted it to be inviting and comfortable and that's exactly what it is. We spend hours in the backyard with the music playing, enjoying the pool and cooking on the BBQ.

With travelling with our young sons, we have everything that they'll need. Sippy cups, Playpen, bathtub, water toys, cartoons, books, games. This is why I think our home will be appealing to families.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect two weeks in this lovely casa, and enjoyed feeling part of the community.

We highly recommend staying in Chan Chemuyil, especially for those who love to have a home away from home.

Great house, very well situated and equiped!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Leah's house in Chan Chemuyil. The house is not big but very well equiped, we didn't miss a thing! If you like cooking, you'll find all that you need. The outside patio is very nice, we felt very well for our meals outside (even a Weber barbecue). The small pool is very nice and really great to cool down during the day or evening, and the outdoor shower very convenient to take away the sand and salt when coming back from the beach. Lots of toys and beach equipment. Our 2 teenagers and our toddler were all very pleased by the house. Chan Chemyuil is very quiet and nice. Chemuyil pueblo, very near, is a nice typical village, with little supermarkets, and great food (We enjoyed a lot our dinner at La Palapa). No tourists shops and a great atmosphere compared to the near by turistic places (akumal, tulum etc..). We were very pleased of the choice to be in Chan Chemyuil! Xcacel beach (5 mns by car of 15mns walking) is amazing, you just need to know that it's open from 9am to 5pm and that you need to go on the left of the beach to enjoy it, this was our favorite beach from all the ones we went to on the riviera. (impressive with all the tortules nests). Communication with Leah was very good and as well with the property managers once in Chan Chemuyil. I would definitely recommend this house to families looking for a comfortable house to explore the riviera but staying in a non touristic village to enjoy the mexican way of life.

Out of the way oasis

  • 5 of 5

This sweet home in an enclave away from the maddening crowd of the Mayan Riviera proved to be a wonderful vacation house. The house has everything you need to be self sufficient and comfortable. It is quiet and both the backyard veranda and the dipping pool were delightful. It is well situated to easily get to public transportation and we enjoyed not having the hassle of a car. The owner was wonderful to deal with on both ends of our transactions. The few small incidents with the house were quickly resolved by the property manager. We loved the little town of Chemuyil and the lovely 10 minute walk nightly to have dinner. The Mayan Riviera is heavily touristed but if you prefer not to be at a resort this is a great choice.

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

We utterly enjoyed Leah's Casa. The back patio was a delightful base to relax, with a mini pool perfect for our 7-year old. Beds were comfy, everything worked.

We especially liked the adjacent town of Chemuyil (5 min walk away), which was small, colourful, and authentically local. Chan Chemuyil itself (where the actual casa is) is like a little tranquil offshoot of this authentic feel, just isolated enough. The overall location is also good, midway between the tourist vortex of Playa del Carmen and the tranquility of the Sian Ka'an Eco-reserve south of Tulum. The local beach was also a plus.

Great mellow family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to the Mayan Riviera in the last four years, so we know the area fairly well, and knew what we were looking for. Leah's house was perfect for a mellow family beach vacation. My five year old loved the dip pool and we spent many hours playing in it. Because Leah also has children, they are very generous to share basically any beach toy you could imagine using. The AC is reliable and the internet connection was the best we've had in Mexico. We cooked breakfast nearly every day, but usually ate out the rest of the meals, particularly dinner, in nearby Chemuyil. The house requires some basic behavior changes which common to the area- no toilet paper in the toilet, take the garbage out daily, cover drain openings, shower outside after the beach, etc. We didn't find that to be difficult but others used to more hotel/resort like accommodations might consider sticking with resorts and hotels. We really enjoyed our family time and would definitely rent this house again! Very quiet and tranquilo!
