Rent these mayan houses in a mayan village in the cenote zone of the Yucatán, Mexico.

A unique opportunity to stay in a typical mayan village - Chunkanán, near Cuzamá, located in the cenote zone of Yucatan.

The casitas of Sac Nicté are set in private tropical gardens. The three casitas are rented together as one unit, so you can enjoy living in the security and privacy of your own compound, just a few minutes walk from the centre of the village of Chunkanán.

Sac Nicté has three mayan-style palapa casitas, constructed in the traditional way with their curved walls and thatched roofs, with the benefits of modern conveniences - an indoor bathroom with hot and cold water, and a fully equipped kitchenette. The extensive private compound has a large swimming pool filled with purest well water pumped up from 14 metres by a traditional windmill.

The main house - casa principal - has a dining area, and a fully equipped kitchenette, with refrigerator and work-top cooker. There is space to hang two hammocks.

Guests can order directly from my caretaker extra services like a mayan meal cooked by his wife, payable direct to him. Also he can take guests to the cenotes at night, payable direct to him.

The daily caretaking service, and maid service is included. Sheets, towels and hammocks, sleeping bags, blankets are all provided. Clean towels are provided every two days.
The bedroom house has space to hang two hammocks.

Please be aware that there are no beds. At Sac Nicté we sleep like the mayans in traditional hammocks with protective mosquitoe netting

The bathroom house has hot and cold running water to the shower; WC and hand basin.

Imagine swimming late at night under the stars, accompanied by the mysterious sounds of the tropical night............

Imagine waking after a night´s sleep of being gently rocked in your hammock.................

Imagine seeing the variety of colourful tropical birds............

Imagine visiting the cenotes and then returning to relax in your hammock...............

Imagine living the magic of the Yucatán in the world of the Mayas.......

My name is Elizabeth Arnott, and I am the fortunate owner of this little corner of Paradise. Originally from London, England, I have lived in Mexico for ten years. Having established a beautiful home in the city of Mérida, I decided that it would be wonderful to have an escape from city life in a mayan village. Having taken the first step of buying land, I then was able to fulfil my dream of constructing mayan-style houses built from stone with palapa roofs. In keeping with the mayan tradition, I installed an old-fashioned windmill, which pumps water from the well 14 meters deep. This pure water is used to fill the large swimming pool and to water the more than seventy different species of trees and shrubs I have planted.

I am very pleased to be able to offer such unusual accommodation to the visitor who is looking for something different, off the beaten track, an unforgettable experience of mayan village life.

Sac Nicte is privately owned retreat in the village of Chunkanan consisting of three mayan style houses and a large swimming pool, surrounded by extensive gardens of fruit trees and flowering tropical plants.

The casa principal is fully equipped with kitchenette, sink, work top cooker, refrigerator, dining area and radio/CD player, and a place to hang two hammocks.

The bedroom casa has space to hang two hammocks.

The bathroom palapa has hot running water.

Four hammocks and kitchen equipment are supplied.

The large swimming pool is filled with the purest well water, pumped by a traditional windmill.

For overnight accommodation Sac Nicte sleeps four guests.

A day visit can accommodate up to six guests with mayan food as an optional extra.

A new restaurant serving traditional Yucatecan dishes has opened in the village. The magnificent palapa roof soars to the heavens, and the excellent cuisine is available from mid-day until the last customer leaves in the evening!
