My wife and two young boys stayed at Casa Sisal and loved it! The home is absolutely gorgeous and the town of Acanceh is charming. We had a fantastic, relaxing time. We did a few side trips but mostly just enjoyed the weather, the home and the pool. We will definitely be back!

My friend and I just returned from 4 amazing nights in Casa Sisal.
We had spent a few days in Merida, and the trip to the country was a fantastic counterpart. As you enter the grounds, beautiful landscaping and nature surrounds you. At the center of it all is the contemporary designed house, which exceeded the already high expectations we had before we arrived!
The days were warm and relaxing and magical fireflies lit up the grounds as twilight began. Cyndy' suggestions for daily outings were interesting, tasty, and offered many insights into the history and local culture of the region.
The caretakers, Bartola and her sister Soco were very warm and helpful and they cooked us an outstanding regional meal, which I highly recommend. We had a great time communicating with them using an iPhone language translation app!
We can't wait to return with additional friends in the near future.

My (recently new) fiancé and I stayed for a week at Casa Sisal after stumbling upon it online while planning our Mexican holiday from australia. We were both immensely blown away with our experience at Casa Sisal. I would highly recommend (and have been) staying here. Cyndy, the owner is very kind and aims to please. I coordinated with her to plan the surprise proposal for our engagement during our stay at Casa Sisal. it couldn't have been planned any better and Cyndy was very helpful in arranging everything we needed prior to arrival. She arranged a beautiful table with flowers and candles and recommended a great private chef. An unforgettable night. Right from the front gate, the perfectly manicured grounds, the house, the location and the facilities are amazing. The house has everything you need to stay comfortable as if you had never left home. Although it's location is not right in town, travelling by car is easy and a fun adventure. It also makes it easy to see other towns and sights in the area. Maps and guides of the area made by Cyndy are also very helpful. Honestly, we have never been to such an amazing getaway in all our travels and will definitely be a returning, even all the way from australia.
