Birdhouse catches natural breezes and is perched with a view of the treetops.  A private outdoor shower with solar heated water and dehydrating compost toilet make this our favorite eco-suite.Still relatively untouristed, Ek Balam retains its mystique. It's life-like stucco statues of ancient rulers are significant discoveries contributing to the conclusion that the city was once the seat of power for northern Yucatan.

A real oasis in the middle of nowhere. A down-to-earth experience with natural cenote pool, true tree house room, local food and very friendly and personable atmosphere with Lee, Carol, Mago, and Franck. A great way to disconnect or connectback with nature and humanity.

This was such an amazing trip and Lee was a fantastic host! We stayed a week in the Birdhouse and it's was so much nicer than any resort on the beach. The food at Genesis was fresh and delicious every day no matter what was served. The view from our room and the grounds was gorgeous just as expected, we even had a balcony area the over looked the street. And too top it all off Ms. Lee was the best host. She booked our taxis to Valladolid and Temozon on the days we asked and even assist us in getting our baggage when the airline lost them, and is just an all around wonderful person. I cannot wait to come back again!

Wow, what a place! In a friendly little pueblo quite close to the archeological zone of Ek Balam is a small unique paradise created for a traveler's enjoyment and comfort. We stayed in the birdhouse, and it was like living in a treetop (but felt absolutely solid and secure). My son had his own roost in a loft outfitted with a hammock, and we adults had a suspended bed that lulled me into a wonderful night's sleep. Yes, there are roosters crowing in the morning, but there are other low-key jungle birds that are background as well, and none of them stands out or is at all jarring. They certainly did not interfere with sleep, they were just the music of our night. The food was fabulous, Gloria, who was acting in Lee's stead at the time we arrived and who made and served us dinner, was welcoming and very friendly, helping us with whatever we needed. We met Lee in the morning, over a delicious breakfast. Unfortunately we could only spend one night, but we would have been happy spending several days there. We explored the surrounding pueblos a bit, and found a gem of a cenote about 15 km away (Sac Aua). I would highly recommend this listing to anyone looking for an alternative to escape the Cancun/Tulum vibe.

Lee has created a stunning retreat in Ek Balam. The environment is serene, the accommodations are cozy and the vegetarian food is a delicious blend of Mexican, Mayan and other cultures. Genesis is a refuge for injured animals who are well taken care of; Lee has such a big heart! It is a quick drive from Ek Balam which is an impressive and unique Mayan site with a lovely cenote. We wish that we had more time to go on the tours Lee offers, other guests told us they were well worth it. We really enjoyed our stay there and highly recommend it to others. The Birdhouse room was so cool! Genesis is a slice of paradise.

I was welcomed to the lodgings. The grounds are lovely and the staff are very nice but it is not the tropical ecolodge we expected. It is a lot in a small Mayan village not a place with access to forest trails. There are the sounds of the village: barking dogs, crowing roosters, gobbling turkeys and music. The pathways are uneven and not lighted so flashlights are necessary at night. The food was good. I re-read the air b&b listing after we got home and saw that breakfasts were included for air b&b guests but we were told they were extra beyond the continental breakfast of pastry and coffee. I'm not sure but I think we were charged for them. It is a rustic place without the usual amenities of a hotel, no a/c, wifi, toiletries etc The rooms are located around the perimeter of the property. Ours was designed interestingly with some clever details, but small. There is no air conditioning only a wall fan. It was hot even in January. The shower is outside by the porch, but pretty discrete mostly hidden by vegetation. The worst about the room was the bed. It is a bed-sized platform made of concrete on top of which is an about 4 inch memory foam mattress which has lost its memory! It just flattened down to the concrete. We stayed 4 nights and after the first night I said the mattress was like non-existent. I was told extra pillows would be brought but that never happened. Finally for the last two nights I took cushions from the common area. Wasn't great but an improvement. There is not a lot to do nearby--the ruins are very worthwhile to do. Otherwise it is pleasant enough to sit and read. All in all it would have been Okay for a night or two, especially if the bed were comfortable. I don't mind rustic when it is in a nature reserve but this is not. Four nights was too long. I understand that Lee hasn't been well for awhile and I actually took that into account when writing this review.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. The property is an acre and it would be nice to have more but I am told that part of the charm is actually the village, the friendly Maya neighbors, and the authenticity of the experience. There are a few nice walks out of town in either direction but they start out on pavement. Will check the mattress today. It was nice to meet you.

Lee was a great host and we had a great time staying in the Birdhouse - a very cool experience. We should have stayed there more than the one night we did!

Thanks Kristen! It was great having you here. Not much sun for the solar water heater...and backup boiler turned off. Sorry about that. Hope you had an amazing vacation in the Yucatan.

I was a freelance writer/publisher who, in 1999 found my personal niche in a lovely Maya village in central Yucatan. I love the abundance of life here, the friendly, laid back community and, since building the lodge, the opportunity to meet fascinating people from around the world--mostly positive, adventurous folks looking for meaningful, non-intrusive ways of interacting with the natural and human community here.
