Overview

About the property

Fantastic option for experiencing life near the beach, jungle and wildlife

Enjoy 10% off all our rates for reservations between April 1 - November 30, 2017.

Comes with A/C in all main rooms, one king size bed in one room and four bunk beds in the other bedroom, TV, stove, fridge, microwave, pool, outside sitting area, shady front yard, and peaceful neighbours and locals.

The main attraction for this house is its location. Its right next to one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Its a turtle sanctuary and tourists can book evening turtle walks and experience the life cycle of our local turtles.

The cuisine here is fusion mix of Mexican, Mayan, North American, European and is very fresh. There are beach bars, restaurants, ruins, snorkeling, diving, sailing, fishing, spas, resorts, adventure parks, cenotes, lagoons and just about anything to keep you going.

On the flip side, the community is also very quiet. If you're looking for something different than a resort vacation, you can save money and experience an authentic visit to Mexico.

If you walk down the streets of Chan Chemuyil expect friendly faces to say hello and even invite you for a sit down and beer. Its a very relaxed and peaceful place to kick off your flip flops and chill. A cold beer next to the pool is a great way to cool off and get some sun.

The neighbouring village of Chemuyil is a nice place to go for a walk. At night the town is alive with children playing and people walking around. Often celebrations, weddings, and festivals abound. Circuses and bull fighting show up as well.

Xcacel beach is only a few minutes walk and you can take some food and drinks with you and sit on the beach all day if you like. The beach is open from 9am to 5pm. They also offer turtle walks in the evenings and you have to go and sign up for that beforehand.

Tulum is a growing town and is full of surprises. They have one of the best beaches in the world and is a must see. The ruins are also close by and is known for being the only seaside Mayan ruins. Get there early and avoid the crowds.

If archeology is your thing, more ruins can be found in Muyil, Coba, Ek Balam and of course Chichen Itza. Cost to get in use usually very minimal. Having a car is very useful but you can also do tours if you opt out of getting a car.

Having a car here is not necessary. Collectivos (shuttle vans) run up and down the highway carrying passengers from Tulum to Playa del Carmen and back again. You can step out onto the highway and catch one easily. Rates are cheap and you can get around without a car.

Akumal is very close and offers great swimming and snorkeling. The bay is teaming with turtles during the Summer and Fall months. Yal Ku is a lagoon that's protected and is also a great snorkeling excursion. You can visit beach restaurants like La Buena Vida and Lol Ha and enjoy breathtaking views while munching on local cuisine and drinks.

Theme parks like Xel-ha are very close and offer an all inclusive setting for the day. Once in, your food and drinks are free and you can walk around the lagoon, or go for an inner tube float down the mangroves, zip line over the water, swim and snorkel and see all the tropical fish in the lagoon.

Be sure to go to places like Solomon Bay and have lunch on the beach at the end of the road. Fresh sea food taken right from the bay is cooked and served on the beach in between palm trees for shade and an amazing view of the bay.

Tankah Bay also has some interesting features like Casa Cenote. Cenotes are one of the unique features of this area. Basically sink holes, the underground water system is practically all connected in some way or another along the entire Yucatan peninsula. The water in the cenotes near the ocean tend to be a tad salty as the water mixes between the two bodies of water but is not as salty as the ocean.

There are services offered here that may interest some tourists such as yoga, massage, diving, cave diving, the list goes on.

Pefect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Mexico, so we were a bit apprehensive about staying outside of the normal resorts, but found we would not have changed a thing. The house was very clean and organized, but not luxurious. Although the private pool in the back was pretty fantastic. The air conditioning kept us comfortable at night and overhead fans during the mornings. The house is located near Chemuyil, which provided nice local people, restaurants and small markets. One can also walk to a neighborhood cenote and a beautiful secluded beach is right across highway 307. We were worried about crossing the busy road, but it was very easy and only a 10 minute walk. We visited the beach at Akamal, half moon bay and Mayan ruins at Tulum; all were just a quick drive away. If you are looking for an adventure on the Mayan Riviera, this place is for you!

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Chan Chemuyil is a great little community right off the highway and nearby some great beaches, Chemuyil, which has some nice restaurants, and Akumal. You wouldn't need a rental car to stay here but it was definitely helpful. If you don't have a car, you could easily walk to Chemuyil, to the beach, or to the highway to catch a colectivo.

The house itself was basic but had everything we needed: air-conditioned bedrooms, a kitchen with all the necessities, and a nice-sized pool in the backyard. Some of the kitchen items, such as utensils, plates, cups, etc. could use an update but, given the price of renting out this house, we still got quite the value and everything worked just fine. The bed was a bit on the firm side and none of the furniture in the house was very comfortable but we were constantly on the move so it did not bother us much. The master bedroom has plenty of space to store your clothes/luggage and it also has french doors that open up right out to the pool area.

Bijan was very friendly and helpful, stopping over on our first morning and also later in the week to check on the pool.

Great Chan Chemuyil house

  • 4 of 5

A great little house that was perfect for both of us and our two kids. The location was perfect to base ourselves out of and explore the southern Mayan Coast. Being in a quite residential area there was never the noise and bustle of life which is why we choose this property. It is very central to the many ruins, towns, beaches and cenotes in the area. The house had all the basics needed as well as a pool to rest and cool off after a day off beaching or exploring. We would recommend this property as well as other managed by Bijan to other people.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We stay in this wonderful casita for 5 days .

It was a perfect choice to end our Mexican Holiday.

Just opposite to the best beach we see in Riviera Maya Xcacel.

The Casita is nice, in a calm residential context. just a couple of kms from Chan Chemuyil.

Many thanks to Bijan Zade, nice person, present but never intrusive.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL week at Chan Chemuyil! Away from the "touristy" action in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Casa de las Palmas were perfect for us! The location is great: close to the most beautiful beach around, and also just 20" to Tulum or Akumal. There was good snorkeling at this close beach and while we did several excursions/tours, hanging at the beach was our favorite part! Bijan was awesome and gave us great tips on places to go and some restaurants. We would definitely choose to stay here again!! Loved the pool and the private patio surrounding it!!

Chan Chemuyil is located near Akumal, Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Each has its unique flavour. Akumal is closest and smallest and has a great bay for swimming with turtles and checking out the incredible reef with all its abundant sea life. Fine restaurants abound and there are art shops and of course the beautiful beaches and ocean. Tulum is south of Chemuyil by 20 minutes driving and is much bigger and feels like a town. It has almost anything you will need to compliment your vacation. From groceries to ruins, to restaurants, and one of the top 10 natural beaches in the world. From Tulum you can head west towards Coba ruins or keep going and check out Valladolid and Merida, cities in the Yucatan state. Ruins are plentiful all round this area. Playa del Carmen is known for its night life and does not disappoint. You can walk the touristy 5th Avenue and visit all the neat shops and restaurants. If Tulum doesn't have what you're looking for Playa del Carmen will. Tulum is a bit more relaxed and quiet compared to Playa del Carmen.
