The space

Malu is Mayan and means Luck. Located betwen Akumal and Tulum is the darling community of Chan Chemuyil across from Xcacel Beach (turtle sanctuary). Great house with 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has 2 twin beds. The living room has a futon that could sleep two more. Chan Chemuyil is a quiet and charming community of mostly expats (Americans, Canadians and Europeans). There is an AC in each bedroom and in the living room.

With it's colorful rows of houses, it's an idyllic retreat after a long day doing nothing at the beach. You can sleep up to 6 people in the house, if you have a larger party, we have another house behind and there can be a shared backyard. Nice for two families or groups of friends who are looking for something off the beaten path. (Chan Chemuyil provides 24/7 Police Security)

Playa Xcacel, which also is a turtle sanctuary, is reachable by a short walk within 10 minutes from the house. Playa Xcacel is one of the only remaining protected areas where development is not allowed preserving the natural habitat of the turtle sanctuary. Crystal clear water and a white sandy beach, make Playa Xcacel perfect for snorkeling, swimming and relaxing. Pack a cooler and your snorkeling gear and you might be the only one around. It is truly heavenly.

On your way back the you can swim in two fresh water cenotes. Cenotes will transform you. A cenote is an underground lake, which was held sacred by the ancient Mayans as a place of worship, and also served as their vital source of water.

Guest access

Staying at Casa Malu, you will have access to the house, and the backyard, which is 'shared' with a neighbor behind.

Interaction with guests

We will personally welcome you, give you an introduction to the area and answer most of your questions on day one and will remain in contact for the duration of your stay.

The neighborhood

Chan Chemuyil is a colorful collection of small homes located on their own little bubble. Close to the ocean, and close to relaxation.

Getting around

Getting around is a breeze. 'Colectivos', the public transport, go by readily between 6 am and midnight. After hours, a taxi from Tulum is always an option, as it is only 15 minutes away.

Other things to note

There is ADDITIONAL ELECTRICITY charge that is calculated by the KW usage after your stay.
2 beach chairs and beach umbrella are available for you to use.

My husband and I are travelers by nature. We arrived in Mexico years ago and we fell in love with the colors, the warmth of the people and weather!

The Riviera Maya is a beautiful place that steals your breath from day one. We call ourselves lucky to live here.

Under the name Best Riviera Maya Rentals, we welcome visitors to the area in a more personal manner. Hopefully, some of the reviews reflect out approach to hosting :)
