Year Purchased: 2007
About: We are a family of 4 who live in the states. I'm a nurse and when I take a vacation I really need to de-stress, this home is the perfect place for that. I came to Merida on vacation and fell in love with the Yucatan. The city of Merida is beautiful and safe, the gulf villages are quiet and wonderful to visit.
Why Chelem: Chelem is easy to get to from Merida. it has the laid back lifestyle yet all amenities are in the home or nearby in Progresso or Merida.The cost of living is very affordable,the weather is great and the people are very friendly. I have always wanted to be near the beach and I'm able to live right on the beach and achieve my dream. This house was purchased in 2007 after a total renovation.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Waking up in the morning and having the ocean as your first view is priceless. Equally priceless is ending the day on the terrace watching the sunset. The sunrise is equally beautiful from the rooftop terrace.
I have eaten great fish in Progresso, visited ruins and pyramids, gone shopping at ultramodern shopping centers in Merida, watched Flamingos from my terrace, wandered through small villages eating great food and meeting wonderful people, walked along the beach for hours gathering shells and meeting one single soul. This home is a small piece of paradise
