Progreso house description

Welcome to Recuperacion. Our home is a large 4 bedroom, 3 full bath beachfront property for rent in the small fishing village of Chelem, Yucatan (about 5200 people) on the Gulf of Mexico.

This is not a resort area - this is the real Mexico! Chelem is a rustic and laid back town, but close to modern amenities and large cities.

The home has been completely updated and features a pool with built in loungers, a modern kitchen with new appliances including 5 burner gas range, washer and dryer, TV and wifi internet access, air conditioning in bedrooms, pressurized water system, and talavera tile accents throughout.

Gulf and pool views from most every room in the home. There is about 3000 feet of living area under roof, so you'll have plenty of space.

Downstairs you'll find the kitchen, living room, dining room, a bedroom with 2 double beds, and a full bathroom.

Upstairs 3 more bedrooms, and 2 more baths -- Here you'll find the master bedroom with balcony overlooking the gulf and a private en-suite full bathroom.
There is also a bedroom with a gorgeous hand-carved king bed, and another bedroom with a queen bed that has lovely water views; these two bedrooms share a full bath.
The laundry area is also upstairs.

A large covered patio overlooks the pool and the gulf and has dining area, hammock, and lounge chairs. The beach is quiet and good for swimming, or taking long walks and searching for seashells.

Protectores added in March, 2012, so that home can be fully secured when vacant, or for added peace of mind for guests.

Our home is located within walking distance of the main square of Chelem with it's many good restaurants, open market, church, a few shops, public transportation, and an internet cafe'.

We are about 6 miles west of the cruise port town of Progreso, (approx. 50,000 people) which has several beachfront restaurants, tourist shops, a wide malecon (boardwalk), a nice square, and a bustling market.

We are only 30 minutes north of the large, colonial city of Merida (over 1 million people), which has an international airport featuring direct flights from Houston. The best connections are on United Airlines, offering 1 stop service from most US cities directly into Merida. Or you can save some money and fly into the resort area of Cancun, which is about a 3.5 hour drive from the house; it is also served by a luxury bus that travels from Cancun to Merida.

This area is becoming popular with Canadians and Americans as of late, so there is a large expat community around.

There is much to do nearby including visiting Mayan ruins (Dzibilchaltun, Chichen Itza, Uxmal, and several others), or touring henequen/sisal plantations with their restored haciendas, kayaking in flamingo habitats, swimming in cenotes (underground rivers), fishing, lots of shopping, or just beaching it. The area is culturally interesting and will provide you with insight into true Mexican life.

Within driving distance of the home are several very interesting towns with unique personalities - Izamal, Ticul, Valladolid, Celestun, and many more.

Historic Merida is a city dating back to the 1600's with amazing original architecture in the Centro district. Experience music and dancing on it's many squares nightly, or on Sunday morning rent a bike and tour the city on several streets closed just for bicycling. You will love the fabulous restaurants and outdoor cafes in Merida, and the shopping is great!
Or visit modern Merida with it's ice skating rink in the center of a mall, interesting zoo, or it's VIP movie theaters with lounge chairs and cocktail service. Even Home Depots and Starbucks, if you're homesick.

You could stay in this area for a long time and not run out of things to do. The local people are very friendly and helpful, and will gladly assist you even if you don't know Spanish.

We have an English speaking caretaker nearby if you need assistance, she will also meet you and introduce you to the home. We have many friends living nearby, so you'll have a handy network.

You can make use of the frequent and cheap bus service, or rent a car for maximum flexibility. Our home rents for $700/week, or $2000/month, and we love snowbirds! This is our personal vacation home, and we take great care and pride in it, you will enjoy it.

Please email me with any questions you may have, or for additional photos. Also, if you are considering buying property in this area of Mexico, I'd be happy to talk to you about our experience.

Thank you.
