About our home

A visit to our home can offer you a wide range of vacation experiences. The house is less than 50 meters from the Gulf of Mexico, warm blue/green waters all year long, and between two Mayan fishing villages. Our gorgeous house was designed to our specifications: ultra-modern, spacious with high ceilings, and open to ocean breezes. You can enjoy ocean views from the second floor rooms and terraces, and the rooftop looks out on a panoramic ocean vista, with 360-degree views of radiant sunrises and dazzling sunsets over sea and sky. Enjoy meals or relax in the hammock in the downstairs breezeway, cool off in the pool, or head down to one of the many ocean coves filled with beautiful shells, pelicans, darting schools of fish and the occasional dolphin sightings.
Our home offers you the tranquil pleasures of sun and sea, the historic and architectural treasures of the Mayan past, the warm and gracious welcome of present-day Mayans, as well as the cosmopolitan attractions of an ancient and sophisticated capital city less than an hour away.

Where is it?


Most people still think of Cancun when they think of Yucatán. We live on the other side of the peninsula, the side that hugs the warm blue-turquoise-green waters of the Gulf of México. You'll find Mayan fishermen heading out in their boats at dawn, alongside Canadians, and Americans who've chosen this beautiful coast for their winter or permanent home. Mexican families from the nearby capital city of Mérida and other towns come here for their summer vacations each July and August. The lovely Mayan people living here are warm, open, generous-hearted and devoted to children and family.
Explore ancient Maya ruins and clear blue-water cenotes nearby.
Want city lights? A 30-minute drive brings you to Mérida, capital of Yucatán: established by the Spanish in 1542, and built on a centuries-old Mayan city of T'hó. Some historians consider it the oldest continually-occupied city in the Americas, and you'll find museums, art galleries, restaurants, shopping, dancing...a rich panoply of cultural, educational, architectural and gastronomic pleasures. Distinguished in 2017 as one of the top places in the world to visit, Lonely Planet named Mérida the 2017 capital of culture for its lively music scene and cultural flamboyance. In 2019, Mérida will host the 17th World Summit for the Nobel Peace Prizes.
