Here's a chance to do some one-stop shopping for your relaxation needs. With the Mayan Hammock XL Family-sized Thick Cord and Universal Hammock Stand Set you can get everything you need in one package. You'll be able to assemble the stand set, attach the Mayan Hammock and put your rest on the fast track.

These Mayans are the real thing, not some cheap imitation that's made of lesser quality materials. These hammocks are made of extra-large string that's four times thicker than is used in an ordinary Mayan. This makes the item stronger, so it will give you years of enjoyment, and make it softer, which intensifies the comfort you feel while relaxing. Some of our customers compare this feeling to lying on a soft sponge. You can probably get the whole family – and some of the extended family -- on this hammock, which holds up to 869 pounds and has a large bed area (7 feet long, 6.6 feet wide).

The Universal Stand is made to stand up to the additional payload. It's made of heavy duty steel and has a special powder-coated finish that enables it to withstand those hot summers and cold winters. It can be adjusted to fit any non-spreader bar hammock out there. And just because the stand is sturdy doesn't mean it's clunky and immovable. The stand can be disassembled into five pieces which makes it easy to transport, just in case you decided to take your Mayan on holiday.

Sharon S. said: Very comfotable

The hammock is very comfortable, I find it a bit high with the stand so to get in, is a bit of maneuvering, easy assembly, except knowing which hole to link the hammock to... if you put it on the highest setting, the hammock lays low to the ground and the base - so even my 46 lb son would probably hit pavement. so we have it pulled up quite high for now, which also makes me a challenge to get into.. great to sit, lay or swing in - very comfortable and relaxing.

Debra S. said: love my hammock stand

i feel this universal hammock stand is a safer hammock stand than other types on the market. I feel totally secure in it. Love the versatility of size hammocks that can be used - mayan, brazilian, ENO - they all work with this stand and the stand is very easy to assemble. Though I do favor the natural mayan hammock vs this multi color hammock because the feel is softer - this one is close. all in all a very good purchase.

Bought this for my hubby, who is outside most of the weight limits on the small store hammocks. It definately supports our family comfortably. We have swung happily on it downstairs and can't wait to take it outdoors once it warms up. I will be buying the weather sock for it (and more than likely the drink holder!).

Gabriella said: 3.5 years and counting....

Bought my hammock from Hammock Universe end of June 2011. Threw my bed out because it was only cluttering up the bedroom.

Consistently the best, most relaxing sleep of my life.

I wash it in the bath tub with cool water and a little bit of liquid laundry detergent. The colour in the green ropes runs but does not affect the cotton. Then I hang it outside on the balcony for a few hours to dry. It dries quickly on warm windy days.

This hammock has gotten a lot of use and much cat activity. (I have a duvet in the hammock.) No strings have snapped. Just if I push my feet against the hammock, I can get string gapping which is eliminated by washing and hanging it up to dry. I thought this might be a problem and Hammock Universe offered to send me a new one for free. But I figured it out and everything is fine. Thanks guys.

Samantha H. said: Awesome as bed for 2!

my partner and I replaced our double bed with this and aren't looking back. It took a week to really adjust, but it's great!

We have room and pulled it tighter and it made us way more comfy.

Definitely a good idea!

After searching around local stores for months and never even finding a hammock I found this site and I have to say I'm not disappointed in the slightest

Zachary C. said: Nice, but..

The package the stand came in was totally destroyed by the time it got here (fast shipping though), which was kind of a surprise. Definitely not as space-saving as my last hammock stand, but I do like it. The hammock itself is nice, I didnt realize the holes would be as large as they are, but the size of it + how comfortable it is totally makes up for it. Looks nice too

It really is wonderful since it's easy to set up (great design) and the hammock is very comfy but I think my partner prefers the spreader-bar hammock.

Krysta J. said: Great Hammock

I recently purchased an xl mayan hammock and the hammock is amazingly comfortable!!! i am so happy i made this purchase. the only issue i have is that this hammock is suppose to be able to hold 850lbs but the stand that was sent with it states it can only hold up to 450 pounds which seems a little counterproductive for me to have spent the extra money on an xl hammock when we cannot use it to its fullest ability.

Ryan W. said: Big and comfortable

We love this Hammock. My wife and I can both fit in it comfortably. With only one person it tends to fold over you like a cacoon but you can spread out and prevent that. Shipping from Hammock Universe was faster than I expected; our Hammock arrived within 3 days. We also purchased the sock and I'm glad we did, it will keep the Hammock in top shape.

The only complaint I can think of is that there was a nick in one of the cords of our Hammock where it's held together by just a few strands....that's a bit concerning whether or not it will fully break. It should have been caught by quality control from the manufacturer.

Kimberley A. said: Exceeded expectations!

We absolutely love our Hammock. We bought it as a Father's Day present but something the whole family could enjoy. I hesitated thinking that it wouldn't actually hold the whole family but knew my husband would enjoy it. Sure enough it not only held us it was comfortable. Now the kids want one each for a bed and we bought one for my dad for Father's Day. Super easy to put together too! Love it!

Carl B. said: Thick Cord Mayan Hammock, Forest green, with stand

I was kind of surprised to get a 'navy blue with a hint of green', instead of 'Forest Green' for the colour, but wasn't too concerned. I have had the hammock for a little while now, and it kind of stretches towards the ground over time, so gotta adjust it down lower on the pegs.. making it more of cacoon cuz it's tighter at the top. I can't get used to the ropes so I end up putting a blanket inside to cushion it while sleeping.

I use this as a bed replacement. But really it's now become a; couch / bed / lazy-boy chair / lounger / etc... replacement! Haha

I moved into a smaller room and a regular twin / double bed w/ frame, would have taken up most of my room. The Hammock and universal stand gives me back a lot of space to utilize.

Summers get pretty hot in my area and I think the "net" material will allow for nice "

As for the product it's SOOO AMAZING! SO RELAXING AND COMFY. Don't even need a pillow. I would sleep there all day if I could :P The Stand was sooo easy to set up, no tools required. I recommend this set to everyone! Kid friendly too! and can fit 3+ people. Very Strong.

This hammock is really comfortable with amazing stretch. The colour was awesome but if you leave hammock in sun for more than a half hour unattended the colour changes and fades.
The frame seem questionable since it moves a bunch when adjusting where the hammock sits but its very sturdy. Also the hooks didnt seem to work on the same level. Eg. One was on the 5th hope and one was on the 4th.

I absolutely love the hammock and the delivery was within four days - fantastic. Sorry to say though, that my husband, whom I bought it for, is a big man and he is not comfy in it for long. He would have preferred a fabric style one he states. But he will have to wait until this one falls apart or buy his own style, cause now I can have it for myself - his loss

We use the hammock for short, much needed cat naps, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature in our own backyard, either in the sunshine or under a tree for some shade. It's easy to move around to wherever you want it.
A cat nap in our new hammock is the perfect way to rejuvenate ourselves in order to keep up with our busy lives.

We set up this hammock and all 4 of us (me, husband and 2 kids) had a fun time laying around on this!

We had realized there was a hole in the hammock right after setting up.. I emailed with pictures the problem and they sent out a replacement next day, no questions asked.. and even told us to just keep the ripped one (which is still usable as the hole is near the side)

Customer service fantastic, arrived quickly and was so easy to put together. Hammock is beautiful and comfortable.

There is going to be a lot of time spent there this summer with some good books!

Love the hammock and stand. I'm happily surprised how quick it is to set up and put away, and how little space is required to store.

I've had a couple wonderful sunny breezy naps in the yard and my kids (5, 3, and 3) are always begging me to go lay in the hammock with them. It's awesome.

I've already bought a stand and hammock that I love, this one is meant for guests. The hammock itself is excellent, but the stand arrived with one of the sides crooked. Other stand was perfect, workmanship of this one was decent but not as good as the first I bought. Highly recommended product!

Crista Freeman said: like sleeping in the hands of God.

Until I bought this hammock, I'd never slept in one. I ordered it because of the Swiss/French studies indicating that a hammock type bed results in deeper sleep.

Initially I could not fall asleep but I used it for relaxing and reading etc. Eventually I grew accustomed to accomodating myself in the hammock and was able to sleep. I have the hammock set up in my bedroom therefore I have the option

The box arrived within 3 days. My two daughters curl up in it together to read books. It is easy enough to the assemble that we took it up to the cottage. The price was the best we could find after looking at several competitive sites... plus it's Canadian!

Note: The hammock is not left out when not in use and the hammock stand will be stored in the garage for the winter.

We wanted to buy the hammock to get the kids outside reading - we now have one child who lives in it. We have 3 boys, and they can all lie in the hammock and read together.

The metal frame bent when all five of us got in the hammock, we called Hammock Universe and a replacement part arrived the next day - fantastic service.

Thank you.

Love the hammock, I use it on my front porch which is covered. I brought it in (the net) during a heavy storm and it tangles VERY easily, however, it is sooo comfortable. Can't wait for work to end so I can just veg in it. Everyone who comes over wants to know where to get one.

I bought this hammock for my husband for Father's Day and you said it was huge and held 800 lbs well we had to test that out!
We all crawled in, and yes, it held us amongst out laughter and giggling. Having 4 people get into a hammock becomes a hilarious event!
We only use it for one or two people mostly, but it's so comfortable even the dog jumps on. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

Fantastic product, I called the Hammock Universe guys and they assured me that the old problem with the hammock bed being too close to the ground had been addressed - they were right, no issues at all - the hammock can be adjusted to any height I choose and has a nice swing motion. Couldn't be happier with my new bed.
