“I'm still contemplating the unbelievable magic and beauty - and wish I had better enjoyed it (was still there!)”

What can I say? My first thought was: use this place for a movie set. 100 acres of diligently protected eco jungle on the ocean... and a variety of animals making our acquaintance (including wild monkeys, baby sea turtles, deer and others I can't even name [fortunately no crocs or jaguars - though not far away). beautiful private white beach longer than a football field; beautiful beds perhaps 30 feet from the soft lapping ocean... perhaps the only private (and isolated) residence along a stretch of heaven populated by mega hotels (though one can hardly call a very large and high-luxury Mayan treehouse made without nails with arching thatched roofs, state of the art kitchen, air conditioners (important), up on stilts (below which they keep the sailboats, paddle boards, ping pong and all the other fun activities) a hotel. The hosts are fabulous, multi-lingual/cultural/international and committed to protecting not only their own but the greater Yucatan environment as eco-compliance consultants.

Worth every penny (and dollar).

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: the sound of the ocean lulling us to sleep - and privacy (everything)
Liked least: because the jungle is protected one has to drive carefully on the only in-out road as its not very wide.
