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 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.

Quiet, Relaxing Beachfront

  • 5 of 5

La Casita de Chelem is one of three houses together on a large lot. The houses are all owned and rented by the same family. La Casita and another house are right on the beach. The third house is behind them but has a view of the beach and very easy access.

La Casita is a very open airy house with large windows and doors all the way around. The architecture is unique, very functional, and makes for a pleasant living experience. There was a refreshing breeze most of the time, but in the hottest weather air condition might be advisable. The pool is a wonderful bonus on the property for when you don't want to swim in the salt water. There is an outside shower to rinse off and a direct entrance to one of the bathrooms where you can shower inside. The kitchen space is very simple but there were adequate pots, pans and utensils to cook our meals.

We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Very beautiful comfy property.

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed the stay at this property. The house was very comfortable for the 10 days we stayed. The only issue I had was that there were to many trees around the pool so the sun light couldn't warm the water. We only swam in the pool probably 2 times due to the water being to cold. The water in my pool in Canada was warmer. Other then that it was a great experience and the owners are very helpful.

Lovely stay in La Casita de Chelem

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I always seek out quiet, off the beaten path, close to fishing village type spots (homes) to decompress and collect freckles and local food and culture each year, in Mexico and the Caribbean- this year was our first to the Chelem area and we we were not disappointed! The house is safe, quiet, comfortable and on the beach- hard to beat! The kitchen ammenities are simple but sufficed for our cooking needs (~1/2 of our meals eaten at home). The grill is great as well. The pool and patio over look the beach which stretches for miles- lots of seashells and seaglass to be had. The locals and town are easy to navigate and friendly as is all of the towns we stopped in across the Yucutan on our trip. The location is teriffic- Progresso is 15" away for groceries and money exchange; numerous ruins and cenotes to visit within 1-2 hours drive. Amazing. The house is visited almost daily by the local bread, fish and water guys- yes, they come to you. Just listen for the tooting horn coming up the road. Wonderful. We will be back.....scott and karin, Newbury Massachusetts
