Hilltop Villa with private pool on 50 acres with staff

Located in: San Ignacio
I built Kukulkan as my dream home in what I have always considered the most beautiful location in the world. Take a look on youtube just search Kukulkan Villa for a 3 minute drone video to see inside and outside. It looks very remote but really its only 10-15 minutes drive to lovely little San Ignacio Town.

And in October 2019 we completed a renovation including adding a new TESLA Powerwall 2 and solar power system with backup butane generator to stay off grid and up to date. We also sanded our magnificent hardwood floors and painted and varnished and made the house like new again.

We located Kukulkan (named for the lead Mayan god from Chichenitza) on a hilltop to get fresh breezes and the best possible view of the Macal River Valley below. We had to build the 1.5-mile road to the site through the woods. And we built the house with steel for strength and wood to blend in with the environment and for comfort with A/C in each bedroom/ We built floors from local hardwoods and marble baths each with a spacious walk in marble shower.

We did our best to build a comfortable modern home that was totally eco-friendly and off the grid and solar powered yet with high-speed internet and efficient A/C in the bedrooms for those rare hot stuffy nights.

But mostly we designed a house to allow the breezes and natural sounds of the jungle to come through. We put in screens mostly to keep out the moths because miraculously one never sees a mosquito. So laying down on the deck and looking for shooting stars or eating on our outdoor dining table or playing outdoors in the pool is just serene with no smelly repellent ever needed. You also have total privacy on the 2000 SF of decks and the pool as they are all located on the side of the house not visible to anyone or anything except perhaps a passing toucan.

I added the glass tiled pool after 2012 but originally I did my daily swim in the river below. It's still lovely to take a dip in the river or take one of our kayaks to explore the river. But I promise the pool which sits well off the ground alongside the decks it will be a temptation for numerous daily or nightly swims. And because the pool is only visible to passing birds or an occasional howler monkey in a nearby tree, bathing suits are optional. Of course, I’ve had a few embarrassing moments. But oh well.

But it's not just the location that makes Kukulkan so special for me and for our guests. It is the Mesh family that will take care of you and make sure you have everything you need for your stay. Jorge Mesh and his wife Esther will always be there for you and be happy to show you around the trails or take you kayaking or make you some wonderful hand made flour tortillas. Jorge and Esther will give you a special personalized experience.

Jorge and Esther can also help set up any trips you would like to take in the region whether that means a journey to Tikal or tubing in the Belize River going on the ATM tour or visiting nearby Xunantunich. There is much to do nearby. To answer any questions and to make all your arrangements in advance of your stay you will also be able to contact Esther's brother Isai who works at a desk and will be easier to reach by email and ask him any questions you have and make any reservations you need for trips in the area. Isai will contact you once you have booked your reservation with us to find out just what you might like waiting for you when you arrive at Kukulkan which could mean wines or sodas or tortillas. He will also offer to make arrangements for trips and special outings you would like to experience during your stay. You will be able to pay the trip provider directly or pay Kukulkan right on VRBO or simply pay with cash if you prefer.

I can promise you that your stay at Kukulkan will be memorable and unique. Please read our reviews for the best insight into the Kukulkan experience.
