This is my vacation home away from home. It is safe, lovely and a delightful luxury in Yucatan. My friend Mauricio is the proprietor and this is family owned. I had an injury to my foot during my stay, his dad, also an owner, made sure that I received excellent medical care. This family takes you as their own. -I trust them and hold them in high regard.

Casita was our home.

  • 5 of 5
Casita del Xix became our home for the month of January. It was very comfortable and we were able to relax comletely both inside, and especially, outside. The swimming pool and area under the palapa were where we spent much of our time. We felt very safe and secure in the Casita and in the area. Mauricio and Jose were welcoming and pleased to share their lovely home. They were within reach when we had questions or required guidance or assistance, yet gave us complete privacy.
The area is not without its challenges. English is not widely spoken, and some facilities (i.e. laundry) are elusive. A car is an abolute essential. With a vehicle, many amenities and world class attractions are within easy reach. The local people are patient and helpful, and a visitor needs to be accepting and patient in turn.
We are already considering a return as early as next year. We enjoyed it that much.

casa del xix

  • 5 of 5
Chelem is a unique little fishing village 30 min from Merida. Our stay at La casa del Xix has been a wonderful experience, the house and its surroundings are just as nice as the photos. While at the house we spent most of the time in the pool :) We highly recommend not only this house but any of Mauricio's homes. The entire family is amazing. Yucatan is a lovely state, with so many places to visit and food is amazing, which was the primary reason of our travel. Eating pescado frito almost every day was the highlight. Merida is a must see town as well, but don't be afraid to explore other little towns such as Uxmal and Mani, its also a home to the best poc chuch restaurant Tutul-Xiu. If you want to get a true essence of Yucatan, it's people and culture this is a place for you, BUT if you need luxury and pampering then one of the Cancun hotels would be a better option.

Great secluded brach!

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful experience at this house! The owners were really helpful and were available for anything we needed. The house has everything you need and the beach is really calm during the morning hour s to enjoy a nice swim. By noon you will start getting a breeze that is very welcome and it will just make the house fresh throughout the day.
They suggests to keep all your windows open so the breeze can come through and it really makes a difference.
You do need to make sure that you stock up well with groceries either in Progreso or Merida since this small town has very little to offer other than then small "tiendas" you find in every corner, which are fine for snacks or drinks but not much real food. There are also a few fish shops in Chuburna where we ended up buying a delicious fried fish thee times during our stay.
This is a great spot to just relax and enjoy miles of white sand beaches where you will seldom run into other people.
A car is a must since there is not much you can get to by walking. Also make sure you bring bug repellent since they get pretty "audacious" at dusk.
Thanks Mauricio and his dad Jose.

Lovely stay at La Casa del Xix

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at La Casa del Xix. The home was designed by the owner with much care and style. He was very accomodating. It was quiet and felt private. Chelem was a short car ride as well as Progresso. I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a relaxing get away. The water is beautiful and water warm. I know we are planning to come and stay again and rent all three homes!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
Simply put. Fantastic!
My wife and I enjoyed the comfort's of Mauricio's home. From having breakfast under the Palapa to taking a late night swim in the Mayan pool. We enjoyed being steps from the beach and taking our early morning swims and taking afternoon siesta's in the hammock's. It was quite an peaceful. It was also reassuring to have either Mauricio or his father check up on us to see if we needed anything.
They made you feel like family. We enjoyed sharing a drink of Tequila with both Mauricio and his father upon arrival.
The hardest part was having to leave. But we will be back.
