sunsets. The casita is seperate and situated off the pool area wiith a Queen bed and bathroom, internet. Beautiful gardens including a coconut grove surround the house.

Mexican hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

We were at Casa Amanecer for three fabulous weeks. It was very hard to leave & would have liked to stay all Winter.

I can only endorse all the comments made by others. Carole the owner was also a wonderful local guide & source of information.While Celestun is a peaceful Mexican fishing village we were always busy though had plenty of time for shelling & reading. The Sat TV & Broadband Internet were much appreciated. A car is useful but not necessary. We traveled to Cancun over nighted there & took the Bus to Merida as there are many more convenient flights there than to Merida where flights generally arrive late in the evening. There is an hourly Oriente bus to Celestun from the Noreste Bus Station in Merida which is short Taxi ride from the Came ADO long distance Bus station. Food prices& restaurant meals in Celustun are very low compared to the US & the great fresh Fish from the fish Market is about $2/lb . We really enjoyed shopping in town & riding back to the house in one of the many Tricycle taxis for a cost of $1 US.This was our first trip to Mexico mainly because of all the horror stories but to visit Celestun is no different from visiting a small town in the US the Mayan people all have a smile & are very welcoming. For the lucky few Celestun & Casa Anamacer is an undiscovered vacation retreat long may it remain that way.

Ultimate Relaxation Destination

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at this wonderful house on the beach in Celestun. We loved the personality of the house, the fantastic private pool and the breezes coming off the water. Carole, the owner, was such a joy. We found ourselves on the back porch drinking coffee in the mornings and there in the evenings having cocktails. It is a must to go into town to the market for fresh produce and ask Carole to take you to buy fresh fish. Also, be sure to buy hand made corn tortillas as they are fantastic. We took the boat tour to see the Flamingos. Carole can set this up for you too. It is definitely worth seeing. Although we rented a car in Merida there is a bus that will take you into Celestun. I would advise that you bring whatever money you need in pesos as the ATM machine in town was broken and the nearest ATM or bank is in Merida which is 2 hours away. If you are looking for a vacation spot to get away from it all, this is the place! !!!

Beautiful beach - beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 12 nights at the end of June. What a fantastic place! Its our 13th trip to the Merida/Sisal/Progreso area and this house is the best that we had. We especially love the PRIVATE pool and the extra bonus of being able to walk to town for supplies etc. Carole the owner is a delight to deal with and Karen next door is a treat. We will likely go back again next year - and we NEVER rent the same house twice.

A relaxing & beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to the sound of the ocean and the warmth of the Yucatan sun, is how the day starts. Breakfast can be made in the well-equipped kitchen or in town with a short walk along the beach. Hit the daily market next and pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables or some authentic tortillas. Laze the day away by the pool, take a nap in a hammock or enjoy a glass of fresh coconut water. The end of the day is summoned by the spectacular sunsets.

Day trips include tours of Merida, the cenotes (underground swimming holes), and various ancient ruins in the area.

Overall this vacation was everything that I had anticipated and highly recommended.

Beautiful get-away

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay at this lovely vacation home while I attended my daughter's wedding. My cousin and I were able to take advantage of the charming adjacent casita with its own shower and queen-sized bed. The house itself is well maintained, well-equipped with all necessary amenities and lovingly cared for. The in ground pool which is enclosed by the house and casita made it very private and made the experience more relaxing. The large exterior balcony off the main bedroom overlooks the ocean providing amazing sunset views with warm tropical breezes through the palm trees. A short walk into town makes for a welcoming visit with the locals and shopping at the market provides an interesting adventure in how to live the experience. Although this venue might be outside the norm for anyone looking for an exciting, noisy resort atmosphere it does provide an excellent opportunity to take in the warmth and hospitality that this part of Mexico provides so well.

God, what a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Really stuck for words to describe this place. Gorgeous house, prime location, pristine beach and convivial town a short walk away. From the back porch I watched pelicans gliding above the sea. Amazing sunsets. Hardly another soul. Seemed like a private beach. A short boat trip takes you into the mangrove swamps and the feeding grounds of flamingoes. Not to be missed. A 2 hr drive away is Merida a bustling stylish town that will cater for your big city needs.
