About the property

This house has been designed and built for his mother, for the Architect Mauricio Pinto.

The house has original furnishings and designed with recycled materials. Finished with walls of stone, Italians tiles and Venetian.

This beautiful house is located right on the beach. The casita has a circular mayan pool and is surrounded by coconut palm trees making it a very relaxing environment to enjoy a warm sunset.

The view from the pool is fantastic. You feel like you're inside the sea.

The house has a dining room with a round table that can fit up to 9 people and is decorated with seashells and stones that are common to the region.

Here are four big doors so that you have a great sea views and pool.

The area is decorated with a painting of the family history at the beach from the grandparents

The kitchen is in the center of the house and is designed to fit the whole family.

Its roof has a diamond-shaped design, decorated with lamps produced by the Mayan . It is completely equipped with full size refrigerator, stove with four burners, oven, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, blender, dishes, utensils, glasses, pans and a breakfast bar overlooking the living room.

The casita has two bedrooms, both with ceiling fans and closets. The front bedroom has a king size bed, air conditioner and a beach front view in a balcony. The back bedroom has a full size bed and is connected to a bathroom. The bed is constructed with two doors very old, from a house in the historic center of the city of Merida.

These doors are over a hundred years old.

The second bathroom has direct beach access; directly to the ' Terraza las hamacas '.

Connected to the side of the house is La Terraza Lunar, or The Moon Terrace, which is a lovely patio decorated with palm trees, called xit in Mayan, and irises.

It offers the ideal place to unwind after a day in the sun and admire the night sky.

The house comes with hot water and gas and TV cable ( SKY ) and also has wireless internet.

The natural beauty of the area is clear, but the inside of the house is also decorated with the

perfect combinations of furniture and plants to create an exotic environment, and the house is designed so that the view of the beach can be admired from anywhere on the inside.

The azure sea is 86 degrees in the summer months, perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, and shelling. The house is located at the border of a fishing town called Chuburna, which is a non-tourist area and it is very quiet and private. The gentle, warm ocean is inviting and refreshing. The cooling ocean breeze is the perfect air conditioner. Enjoy coffee or a cold drink sitting out in the terrace, take a stroll on the beach, read a book or just relax in a hammock all day long.

You hardly find a house so fantastic....!!!!

We own three beach front houses in this area, and we rent all three.

La Tintinki and La casa del Xix You're not going to find better homes in the area.

El inmueble está genial, muy cómodo, la decoración está mas que maravillosa. Los muebles están muy amenos con la decoración, no dudo en regresar. Lo único malo es que no incluye el wifi, se paga a parte y hay un buen de problemas con la recepción de celular.

DREAM VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We had the most memorable and incredible stay at the beautiful Casita De Chelem. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the amazing owners. We traveled with a large wedding group and had rented the 3 beautiful homes on the large lot. The owners made us feel right at home and took the time to give us all a personal tour of each beach house. They gave us detailed information about the amenities in the home as well as the local area. We greatly appreciated the extra care and hospitality they provided.

The Casita was a dream beach house! It far exceeded our expectations in the best way possible. As soon as we walked through the front door we fell in love. The beautiful décor, tropical breeze, breathtaking views and infinity pool overlooking the Gulf left us speechless. We felt like we were living in a postcard! La Casita was equipped with all we needed – kitchen supplies, a grill, comfortable living room and bedroom accommodations and WiFi! The home was wonderful, but we spent most of our time outside enjoying the perfect weather, pool, beach and beautiful sunsets. It was truly a dream vacation.

The owners are special people and we are so grateful for all they did to make us feel welcome at La Casita and in Mexico. Their commitment to providing the finest accommodations and personal service to all guests is what made our stay most memorable. We loved La Casita and cannot wait to plan our next trip back!

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The casita is so charming, and is filled with creative details, great artwork done by the owner, comfortable living areas, and just about anything needed to make it a truly great experience. I was there for a month, and anytime some little thing needed attention the owner was very responsive and made sure that all was well. I would go back in a heart beat, as the house is in a great location close to both Chuburna and Chelem, not too far from Merida to go into the city for little day trips for sight seeing and shopping, a quick drive to Progreso for a good grocery, or a doctor if needed, etc. There are many little surprises in the area for dining, including a Thai Restaurant just down the road, and lots of friendly residents who are both locals and expats. The beach is wonderful, and a great place to watch the birds dive for fish, or an evening sunset.

Very quiet, peaceful location just steps from the ocean

  • 4 of 5

Casita is plenty big for 2 couples and has the amenities necessary for cooking at home. WiFi is excellent if you opt for it and there are some English TV programs. House can be very noisy when the winds are strong due to the close proximity to the water. Lovely Mayan pool on the patio and shady areas to sit outside. Had a couple of minor issues and Mauricio and his father Jose were there immediately to attend to them. Very attentive owners and a lovely fruit basket and fresh flowers upon our arrival. Chelem is a very quiet village - no resorts, no nite clubs and Spanish speaking. Fresh fruit, fresh fish and groceries can be found in town as well as some good local restaurants A car is recommended if you wish to explore the other villages and visit Progresso. This is a destination to relax, read and watch the waves

La Playa de Chelem or Costa Azul restaurants offer a comfortable

dinner option.

For those interested in taking in the natural beauty of this area, a trip to Isla Pajaros, or Bird Island, is the perfect way to tour the mangrove that is home to an abundance of wildlife, including turtles, flamingos, ducks and many species of crabs.

At the end of this short tour, dont forget to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Isla Pajaros. The trip takes approximately and hour and a half and leaves the Port of Chelem every day of the year.

Uaymitun is a 20 minute drive. It is a flamingo sanctuary where you

can watch these magnificent pink birds in their natural habitat. The flamingo sanctuary wetlands are along the Gulf coast. It is a unique shallow water sanctuary where freshwater from cenotes (natural wells) blend with salt water,
