Chelem villa description

Would you like to roll out of bed and have your toes massaged by the beautiful white sands of Playa de Chelem; or snorkel over a magnificent coral reef just 30 yards off the beach? This exquisite beachfront home is directly on the Emerald Coast.

Our private Mexican resort home has an in-ground pool with a swim-up palapa bar and cascading waterfall, a huge hot tub, custom made gas and charcoal barbeques and a poolside bath house.

The home has two bedrooms and two baths on the first floor and two bedrooms and one large bath with 5 ton hand made limestone tub on the second floor. The house sleeps 12 comfortably. There is a full kitchen with eat at bar, a dining area and a large living room with a full entertainment unit. There is also a huge amount of outdoor living space throughout the compound which is completely walled in for privacy.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner can be found at most of the quaint little restaurants in Chelem or you may want to buy your own fresh local produce and meat at one of the nearby markets and prepare on your own.

Relax on the oceanside deck with your morning coffee and watch the dolphins play and the pelicans dive for their breakfast; swim in the ocean, sun by the pool or walk the beach in search of giant conk shells.

Chelem is the perfect tropical getaway. Not too close to the bustling crowds and cruise ship activity of Progresso, but not very far when you want to go and enjoy on your own terms.

Some of the famous Mayan ruins, such as Chichen Itza and Uxmal are under a 90 minute drive and many lessor known but just as impressive ruins are within 20 minutes of our home. A private tour guide can be provided at an additional cost.

Merida, the capital of Yucatan, is only a 30 minute drive and the city boasts some of the best shopping, museums and restaurants in Mexico as well as wonderful Spanish colonial architecture. It is also the SAFEST state in all of Mexico.

A vacation in the Yucatan gives you a chance to experience the cultures of Mexico and the Mayan world in a truly unique way!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: My wife and I currently reside in coastal Massachusetts, and have been the owners and operators of our own HomeCare business since 2001. We spend time at our Chelem home every winter and have many friends and good neighbors in Mexico.

              Why the Owner Chose Chelem:
              My wife and I wanted to really experience the local culture. This small fishing village is filled with the happiest, friendliest people on Earth and we fell in love with them!

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              This is the perfect location. Away from the crowds when you want to be, but close enough to dive into all the local activities when it suits you. Walk off the porch and dive into the warm waters of the Emerald Coast. Relax to your hearts content and then tour the cities of Merida and Progresso, see Mayan ruins and cenotes, take a fishing trip or tour the mangroves to see wildlife and the Flamingo breeding grounds. The possibilities are endless!
