About Leah Schryver

Canada is COLD! And Alberta winters are FREEZING! That was one of the determining factors in deciding to purchase our vacation home in Chan Chemuyil. We LOVE to travel and we LOVE the Mayan Riviera. The beaches are spectacular, the people friendly, the culture amazing and what a better place to go to relax and get away from it all. We are the Schryvers from Radway, Alberta, Canada. My husband owns his own painting company and I am in the teaching profession so that has enabled us to travel quite frequently. We have two boys ages 7 and 4 that we hope to give as many cultural experiences throughout their lifetime as possible. We have made this Casa our 'Home Away From Home'....and invite you to enjoy the place that we love. This house is well equipped to handle families with young children.

Leah Schryver purchased this house in 2010

Why Leah Schryver chose Chan Chemuyil

We were in awe with Chan Chemuyil after visiting for 10 days back in 2008. After taking a few more trips to Quintana Roo we decided to take the plunge and purchase in this region. It has been one of the best 'crazy' decisions we've made. Everytime we travel we go on a new adventure. To us a vacation means relaxing so if it takes us 10 years to explore the whole region, so be it! You will definately want to return after experiencing the comfort and beauty of Casa Calida.

What makes this house unique

When we purchased this Casa it was very much in need of upgrades. It was our first 'New Home' and it was very exciting to pick out, design and purchase everything that we wanted for it. From picking out the towels and bedding to designing the furniture, we wanted it to feel like home. We wanted it to be inviting and comfortable and that's exactly what it is. We spend hours in the backyard with the music playing, enjoying the pool and cooking on the BBQ.

With travelling with our young sons, we have everything that they'll need. Playpen, bathtub, water toys, cartoons, books, games. This is why I think our home will be appealing to families.

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a 12-day stay at Casa Calida and have only positive things to say. Chan Chemuyil and neighboring Chemuyil are a perfect base from which to explore the lovely Akumal / Tulum area. The house is as well or better equipped than anywhere we've ever stayed in many years of renting, including lots of beach equipment to choose from. The house is compact but perfect for two couples or a small family. It's a few minutes from the beaches and restaurants of Akumal and the rest of the Riviera Maya, but in a quiet and more authentic world of it's own. Tulum, with the Mayan ruins and the funky town are a short drive down the highway. We like to explore a lot, but we were also comfortable spending days relaxing and enjoying the house's dipping pool and back patio area, which gets good sun most of the day.

There are many choices of great beaches nearby, including the Xcaret Turtle Sanctuary just across the highway. We liked the beach at Caleta Tankah down near Tulum because it has a roped-off area that made us feel safer when the surf was high. They charged 150 pesos/person for the day, but you could then use their beach chairs, restaurant, and other services.

We enjoyed the local Chemuyil restaurants like La Palapa and Leo's Pizza and also tried many in Akumal. We even got to watch the Villanova-Michigan game at Turtle Bay in Akumal.

We took advantage of the house's extensive movie library one night and found a movie we hadn't watched. The internet was fine for our needs and allowed me to get a little unfinished work done the first few days we were there and also stream a little TV, although it took some fooling with a VPN to make that work, since some content is only available in the US. Casa Calida's owner Leah was helpful and very quick to respond to our questions. The local managers Jose & Carmen were very helpful and kind. Jose gave us many good suggestions for places to eat and beaches. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would recommend Casa Calida whole-heartedly.

Lovely home with all the details!

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything to make your stay the best. Kitchen is fully-loaded with all utensils, SHARP knives, a citrus squeezer for your Margaritas, storage containers for left-overs, and even some condiments and a full bar! The bed is heavenly- pillow top with nice sheets and great pillows. There is a VCR player and a great selection of movies. Very cute, beachy decor. The best part was the back yard patio. A perfect pool, lounge chairs(unusual in this town...), outdoor dining , and a Weber gas grill. All very nicely done and very private. This house is bit more expensive than many rentals in town, but you get what you pay for!

Wonderful home

We had a perfect two weeks in this lovely casa, and enjoyed feeling part of the community.

We highly recommend staying in Chan Chemuyil, especially for those who love to have a home away from home.

Great house, very well situated and equiped!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Leah's house in Chan Chemuyil. The house is not big but very well equiped, we didn't miss a thing! If you like cooking, you'll find all that you need. The outside patio is very nice, we felt very well for our meals outside (even a Weber barbecue). The small pool is very nice and really great to cool down during the day or evening, and the outdoor shower very convenient to take away the sand and salt when coming back from the beach. Lots of toys and beach equipment. Our 2 teenagers and our toddler were all very pleased by the house. Chan Chemyuil is very quiet and nice. Chemuyil pueblo, very near, is a nice typical village, with little supermarkets, and great food (We enjoyed a lot our dinner at La Palapa). No tourists shops and a great atmosphere compared to the near by turistic places (akumal, tulum etc..). We were very pleased of the choice to be in Chan Chemyuil! Xcacel beach (5 mns by car of 15mns walking) is amazing, you just need to know that it's open from 9am to 5pm and that you need to go on the left of the beach to enjoy it, this was our favorite beach from all the ones we went to on the riviera. (impressive with all the tortules nests). Communication with Leah was very good and as well with the property managers once in Chan Chemuyil. I would definitely recommend this house to families looking for a comfortable house to explore the riviera but staying in a non touristic village to enjoy the mexican way of life.
