About the Property

Perfect private quiet home for writers or painters

Located in the Ría Celestún Biosphere on the Yucatán’s Gulf of Mexico coast, Casa Verde is a spacious, modern beach house built in 2014. It is situated on a pristine white sandy beach that stretches north for miles on an uninhabited coast.
You can view the clear emerald sea, spectacular sunsets and brilliant night skies from the main floor, or wrap-around second floor balconies.
Built on posts for environmental reasons, the house is private and safe. For those seeking tranquility in a natural setting, Casa Verde is ideal – the un-Cancún experience.
The house sleeps 6: A master bedroom with sitting room and guest room (both overlooking the beach) have a king and 2 twin beds respectively. Downstairs, a sofa bed in the den and two built-in living room sofas convert into 4 more beds. The house has two full bathrooms, a large open concept living/dining room with a built-in work space. The kitchen is fully equipped. All rooms have ceiling fans. The master and guest bedrooms are air conditioned. The house has a washing machine, outdoor loungers and beach chairs.
Food and drink are sold in nearby Celestún, a traditional fishing village that features excellent beach restaurants and a daily market. Boat tours of the coast and the Ría (estuary) to view flamingos and other wild life start here. Day excursions to Mayan ruins can be arranged.
Mérida, the Yucatan’s capital, is just 1.5 hours away by car or hourly bus service. It has fine colonial architecture, museums and shops, as well as modern shopping malls, even big box stores and casinos.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The owners are academics and writers who custom built this house in 2014 as a quiet private refuge from the world in which to write far away from the sounds of other people's music, motor boats and loud parties.

Why the Owner Chose Celestun, Celestún, Yuc., Mexico:
After more than 20 years living in rented houses all over Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe we found this bit of paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The rising sun from the east and the sound of fishermen´s boats leaving town wakes us up, we relax at the end of the day watching the setting sun over the Gulf of Mexico.
