Ivan Ramirez purchased this house in 2012

Why Ivan Ramirez chose Tulum

Excelente ubicación, a solo metros del cenote

  • 4 of 5

Pasamos unos días excelentes en esta casa. Nuestra segunda vez que alquilamos una casa en Chan Chemuyil, un lugar que nos encanta. Lo que más destacamos de esta casa fue la ubicación. Nos gustó mucho desayunar en el patio y en un jardín público que está al lado del patio, rodeados de pájaros y plantas a solo 10 metros de un hermoso cenote. Mucha tranquilidad y belleza. Y podíamos ir caminando a la maravillosa playa de xcacel y al hermoso pueblo de Chemuyil.

La decoración de las habitaciones y living de la casa no es de nuestro gusto, con flores de plástico y otros detalles que no nos invitaban a permanecer dentro de la casa. Pero tampoco era ese nuestro objetivo.

La cocina está bien equipada y nos resultó funcional. Los colchones de las dos habitaciones están en buen estado y descansamos muy bien.

Ivan fue súper amable en el trato tanto antes como durante nuestra estadía.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place for a great get away, it exceeded our expectations. We were expecting cenotes in the neighbourhood, but we got one basically in our backyard! The neighbourhood was very friendly and safe and being on the end of the street with just the cenote to the side was fantastic. The house is close enough to visit the Tulum and Coba ruins and different towns within the area. We cooked every meal at home and found we had everything that we needed, as well as everything we needed for beach trips(cooler,chairs,snorkel gear). The owner was great, very friendly and understanding. All in all I would highly recommend this rental!

Wonderful location for a beach holiday

  • 4 of 5

Our family just spent 12 nights at this property and really enjoyed the house and areas. The village of Chan Chemuyil is across the main highway from a wonderful beach called Xcacel. It is about half an hour walk or short drive to the beach. The location is also great for access to Tulum and Acamel Bay. The house was cosy and had everything that we needed for the vacation. There is also a call denote next to the house, which is great for quick swims, especially with children.

A slice of heaven with a beach that will take your breath away

  • 4 of 5

This is the really the most perfect spot between PDC and Tulum and hosts who were very accessible and responsive to any questions we had during our stay. This is the type of home that by the end of the day, I actually looked forward to getting back to the coziness of the home. The living room seating and couch are very comfortable and the decor is suitable for the area, it gives you that jungle feel :)

The house is furnished primarily by IKEA and I loved the little kitchen.

The back yard is not fenced in but I felt very safe. There is a little palapa that is outside and would be great for a evening under the stars. The beds were fantastic. There is no air conditioner, however there are fans is all rooms and the outside shower is very refreshing and private. If you are looking at getting away from it all including no television, no internet then this is the place for you. Nobody will disturb you at all. It had everything I needed. Snorkeling equipement, beach chairs, cooler and towels were available for use, however I didn't have time to use any of them...I was always on an adventure. That is the good thing about this location, it is very central to everything if you want it and away from everything if you want it. If you do need internet there is an internet hub in Chemuyil for a decent price. This is the last house on the block so it is very private with only people walking past who are going to the cenote. A nice way to meet the locals when then go for a dip or cool off on a hot day. Chamuyil the town that connect with the dirt road is a perfect place to get some dinner if you're not interested in cooking on those long adventurous days. I only tried one place called Leos and it was mmmmm good, so good I ate there 3 times in 2 weeks and they even deliver. The pizza and lasagna were really something to write home about lol. I would go into town to get a few things daily, there is HSBC bank machine in Chamuyil kitty corner to the bus stop at the Super Pool Express.

The collectivo was a breeze to catch just a few minute walk to the highway. I would suggest renting a vehicle if your stay is longer than a week. It makes for a more enjoyable, at your own pace kind of vacation.

I would have no problem referring Casa Ecaya and will be returning soon.

Thank you Maria and Ivan.

Hermosa casa para las mejores vacaciones!!

  • 5 of 5

Tuve la suerte de elegir un excelente hogar para disfrutar de mi vacaciones junto a mi familia. La casa es bellisima y esta ubicada a 300 metros de unas de las playas mas increíbles de la península, ademas para acceder a ella tenes que atravesar una pequeña jungla que lo hace mas exótico aun. Es muy confortable y tiene todos los elementos necesarios para no tener que preocuparse de absolutamente nada. Por si esto fuese poco esta situada justo al lado de un cenote que mejora mas aun la vista del lugar. Sus administradores son excelentes personas y muy amables, te ayudan en todo y te dan solución a cada duda.

Gracias Ivan y Maria por abrirnos las puertas de su hogar para poder disfrutar de una soñadas vacaciones!!!
