Overview

Photos and Description of the Hunucmá vacation house rental

A private, 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, custom built polynesian inspired beach home

Casa de las Tortugas (House of the Turtles) is a unique, polynesian inspired beach front home with spectacular views. It is located on the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico's Emerald Coast. The color of the ocean can be a beautiful emerald green or the turquoise blue of the caribbean. The house is located in an area called Sunset Beach about 3.5 kilometers or 2 miles from the small fishing village of Sisal. We are very lucky to be able to watch spectacular sunsets as well as sunrises. Sisal was once a major port from which all the henequin fiber known as Sisal was exported to the world. It is now a quiet, safe and friendly village. Sisal has a variety of small stores where you can buy the basics as well as fresh seafood, local fruits, vegetables and tortillas. There are several restaurants all featuring seafood as well as typical Yucatecan dishes. Sisal is about an hour drive to Merida and the airport. Merida is a beautiful safe city overflowing with cultural activities and events. There are free concerts, dances and serenades every day of the week in different parks in the downtown Historical Center as well as a symphony orchestra, museums and art galleries. Within an hours drive from Merida you can visit Mayan ruins, cenotes, haciendas and other beach towns.

Casa de las Tortugas is located in a remote área rich in nature. You can walk for hours on the beaches, collecting many kinds of seashells, go in and out of the calm ocean water and most of the time see no other people. You may see hundreds of butterflies, a wide variety of colorful birds, as well as white and gray pelicans flying by. Casa de las Tortugas faces a Reserve and depending on the time of year and weather, one can see hundreds of flamingoes flying in and out of the Reserve which is an amazing sight and wonderful photographic opportunity.

Casa de las Tortugas has Direct TV that streams from New York and free WI-FI. Maid service 2-3 days a week is included. Services include making the beds, supplying clean towels and sheets as needed, sweeping the floors and terraces and basic cleaning of the bathrooms. Additional days or services can be requested for an additional charge.

Two of the bedrooms have full ocean views. The 1st floor bedroom/apartment has a partial ocean view that walks out on to a large stone patio and right onto the beach. It includes a private bedroom with built in closet, cabinets, king size bed, bathroom, a small kitchen and living área with an additional doublé bed. It has a small refrigerator, two burner stove top and oven, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. It is perfect for couples or family members that want more privacy.

All three bedrooms have comfortable king sized beds with private bathrooms and showers. All have custom built closets and drawers, fans and air conditioners. The photos show the views from each bedroom.

There is an additonal half bath on the main floor. The kitchen is well equipped with all stainless steel appliances including a dish washer and large pantry. Bottled wáter is provided. The house has an open concept living area which includes the kitchen, dining room and living room all with sliding glass doors opening up to a large patio, infinity pool and heated jacuzzi. The view is spectacular!

The beach in front of our house is effectively private with white sand and calm ocean waters. You can walk far into the ocean and the water will rarely be above your chest. It is perfect for swimming and relaxing as you watch the clouds float by and pelicans fly overhead. After your swim in the ocean or walk on the beach, rinse off in the outside shower and step into the infinity pool that looks straight out to the ocean. It is mesmerizing and the answer to a relaxing, special vacation.

The English-speaking property owners live full-time next door. They will welcome and orient you to Casa de las Tortugas, and be on-call to handle any unforeseen issues and provide advice for planning activities during your stay. If your vacation plans focus on just enjoying the property and ocean, airport pickup and grocery shopping can be arranged with the property owners.

Once you arrive at Casa de las Tortugas, you may not want to leave!!
