Our Home Away from Home!!
Our Home Away from Home!!
This beach house was great for our one month vacation by the ocean. It had all the amenities that we required. The WiFi was a great asset for us to keep in touch with our family and friends. When we arrived the house was clean and inviting with a few supplies and a large jug of water. The ocean view from the veranda was spectacular and there were chairs and a nice eating area for us to have a early morning coffee or siesta. Carlos the caretaker - a phone call away was fantastic - and very helpful in ensuring that we were comfortable. Any repairs, maintainance or removing our weekly garbage was done immediately!! The owner of this home was the most wonderful person, not only very accommodating and very helpful in any questions we had... and believe me...I had many to answer!!! The new microwave, toaster and gas BBQ were delivered within days of contacting the owner by email. The description and photos of the house was accurate, and 3 days after arriving we contacted the owner to book 2 months next year, that's how much we loved it!! We took a cambio into Progreso for 20 peso each, which drooped us in the centre of town, where we shopped at local markets and two large grocery stores - San Francisco and the Bodega, which is similar to Costco. The cab ride back cost us 115 pesos - door to door! We found no need for a car, because the local cambio and cab service is very efficient and really reasonable! The local folks are wonderful people, even with OUR lack of Spanish they helped us out in the market, on the streets and even taking the rides to and from town...very kind, patient, friendly, loving people. We enjoyed our time here...and will be back for more sun, sand, ocean & cocktails next year!!

The owner of this home was the most wonderful person who was very accommodating and very helpful in any questions we had. The description of the house was quite accurate except that the one feature of a gas BBQ was not on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our short time in this home and we are anxiously looking forward to next January to return this home away from home casa. The restaurant that we enjoyed great seafood was Los Delfines in Chuburna a total Mexican experience and the food is great

Owner response: Thank you very much for your kind words regarding your time in our vacation home. I am glad you all enjoyed it and we hope to have you all back next year as planned. I do apologize for not having the BBQ grill. I honestly was not aware that it had fallen apart. The guests that arrived after you, advised us of the need of a BBQ grill and we replaced it with a very nice new grill, and the new guests seemed to enjoy it. I am very glad that Carlos, our property caretaker, was his usual dependable helpful host. Thanks again and we are very glad that we were able to share our small piece of paradise with you and that you will be coming back to continue the experience of the beautiful Yucatan and its hospitable people! Muchas gracias!
We really enjoyed living on the beach in Chuburna. The beach in front of the home is one of the best in the area. Great for morning walks and shell searching. We were very fortunate to have found this home for our first trip to the Yucatan. Close to Progreso and Merida for anything you may need. Lots of sights to see or just relaxing in a hammock on the porch. Particularly enjoyed the pelicans diving for fish right in front of the house. Dolphins swim by in the late afternoon and were very lucky to witness sea turtles hatching under the greenery next door! Loved visiting the pueblos close by, Chuburna and Chelem, for fruits and vegetables. The local people are some of the friendliest and helpful people you will ever meet. We definitely recommend this home for your vacation and we are sure you will fall in love with the area as much as we did. Thanks to the owners for being such wonderful hosts and also thanks to Carlos, the caretaker, for always being just a phone call away.

Owner response: Jim and Sherry, Thank you very much for all your kind words regarding your 10 month stay in our small piece of paradise in the beautiful and hospitable Yucatan. You truly described many of the reasons that our family fell in love with this great vacation home and its surroundings. I have some of the best memories of my childhood summers in the Yucatan, my 4 kids have fantastic memories of at least 15 summers there, and I now feel blessed to be able to share this wonderful life experience with our guests. Thank you very much for being such gracious guests and hope to meet you all someday. Muchas gracias! Letty Ayala
I went with my best girlfriends for a few weeks and had a wonderful time! The pictures posted on this website did the house no justice- the view from the front porch is breathtaking. The house is well kept and the owners/care takers are there for anything. We didn't have any problems and loved every minute. The house is located just far enough away that we had peace and tranquility on the beach but close enough for us to go into the city to dance the night away! Also, there are a surprising amount of places to go: natural caves, haciendas, ruins, etc. You will not run out of places to see! The kitchen is well equipped for cooking at home but there are towns close by with delicious fresh seafood and authentic mexican tacos. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning!

This beachfront property is absolutely gorgeous. Walking out onto the backporch and seeing the endless ocean and beach is amazing. I spent several days laying on the beach reading and enjoying the cool breeze and sunshine. This is a great place to take some time to relax and really experience what a vacation is all about. Also Progreso is only a 15 minutes drive away and is a great place to go to get out of the house and enjoy some good food.

I stayed on this beachhouse in June for about 2 weeks and it was fantastic! I'd go back in a heartbeat! The ocean was breathtakingly beautiful. So calm and serene. The weather was great for swimming and just laying out on the beach. We went barefoot into the beach all the time and the shoreline was very safe. Not too many rocks or seaweed. You are able to go really far out into the ocean with minimal waves and still being able to stand! Many chairs are provided for laying out as well. The hammocks provided in the beach house made the experience more authentic. We tried not only laying out in them but sleeping in them too... (Not recommended for those unexperienced with hammocks! haha) But the beds were comfortable. There is no AC in the beach house and it does get pretty hot during the day (nothing a quick dip in the ocean can't fix), but at night it cools down alot and makes sleeping comfortable. The beachhouse had every appliance and convience we needed. There was a coffee maker (a necessity), blender, and purified water. Everything was well maintained and clean. The location is excellent. We felt very safe in the neighborhood it is in. It is close to a few small towns with some great restaurants (Costa Azul in Chuburna had some great seafood and ceviche!). Progresso is a quick 10 minute drive and the supermarket is located there, along with some beachfront shopping and dining. Overall, a fantastic location for a vacation!! I went on a trip with friends, but I feel like this beachhouse could cater to all types of vacations. The house is large enough to accomadate large families, with plenty of space for both sleeping and dining. The beach really can't be beat. We went to Cancun during this trip as well, and while the beach there was extremely blue and pretty, you couldn't even get in because the waves are so high. The beautiful white sand and clear water make this beach and beachhouse absolute paradise!!

I loved the sounds of the gulf waters and the birds, walks along the beach, and just relaxing on the porch. The Yucatan people are so friendly, and the caretaker of this property is very helpful. Trips to see the ruins, and into Progreso and Merida were easy and very enjoyable. The house is beautiful, and restful. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to find serenity and quiet, or to a family who wants to enjoy a vacation together.

This beachfront home is a beautifully decorated and the porch is a treasure--perfect for lazy afternoons in the hammock and a wonderful spot for viewing the fantastic sunsets. I have stayed for a month and enjoyed every minute--miles of walking and access the the events in the city of Merida. In addition, there are many Mayan ruins nearby for your sight seeing please, that is, if you can tear yourself away from the beach. The house and it's location are quiet and enchanting!

I stayed here for a week this summer, but my visit came and went far too quickly! It was PARADISE! The beach was gorgeous—quiet and seemingly endless! The water was warm, refreshing, and never too turbulent. The sunsets were one of the most beautiful sights I've ever beheld. And when I thought I had had just about enough of the sun, I enjoyed relaxing indoors, laying in a hammock and reading a good book. (There are beds, for those who aren't keen on the idea of a hammock.) What an amazing vacation! I highly reccommend visiting this home to EVERYONE!

About the owner: I was born in Merida, Yucatan and now live in the United States. We have 4 children and enjoyed our summers, mostly one month at a time, at the beach with them and they plan on doing the same with their kids.
Why the Owner Chose Progreso:
I spent entire summer vacations, meaning July and August, as a child and teenager, with family and friends, on the beautiful and tranquil beaches of Chuburna, Yucatan and its most hospitable local people, and I wanted my children to have the same great experience and memories that I have of those great times. My husband and I also plan on spending months at a time there when we retire and plan on bringing our grandchildren along to continue the family tradition. It has been an excellent way to truly experience the culture of the beautiful Yucatan.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The tranquil emerald ocean, the beautiful clean beaches, the friendly local people, and now the new foreign neighbors, are the perfect combination for any length of vacation for family with children or long stay for retired people. Plus there is so much of the Yucatan to explore, and most of it during day trips. It is a great place to enjoy for simple people surrounded by friendly hospitable local people...not a tourist trap.
