We arrived at the Merida airport about 9:30 PM and were met by Zolton. He took us to our accommodations. He showed us the things that we needed to know including the car that we were renting from him. He and his wife are just a most delightful couple as well as their two children. Our stay there for 9 days was most pleasant. I would recommend and have recommended this place.

What wonderful luck to have found such a charming spot to use as a base for travel in the Yucatan. Zoltan and Alicia are warm and welcoming and full of useful tips and information. I highly recommend this place as a refreshing alternative to the hotels in central Merida.

My Stay at the Hidden Paradise _ Jan 18 -25th 2013
My Stay at the Hidden Paradise _ Jan 18 -25th 2013
My boyfriend and I had stayed at this property in Jan 2013 for a week. The place is very clean, comfortable bed and we had our own privacy. The place had its own kitchen, bathroom, living room and a beautiful swing outside where you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine or read. This place can fit a huge family. The pool is amazing and it is like being in your own oasis and again you have your own privacy. The place is close to all major highways and at the time my boyfriend and I were there we did many explorations including being at the beach in Progresso for the day. As I mentioned it is close to all major highways so getting around if you rent a car is easy. It is also close to Merida. Zoltan and Alicia are very hospitable and friendly. If you are missing anything they will provide it. I would recommend anyone to stay and I would definately stay again when I am down there. I would rate this place as excellent. It is only 20 - 25 min away from the airport.

Amazing Value for the Money!
Amazing Value for the Money!
My husband & I stayed here for a weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The owners, Zoltan and Alicia, are great hosts who really know the area! It was particularly helpful to us that both of them were fluent in both English and Spanish - and willing to help us out. For example, we thought we had a car rented, but had not received a confirmation. Alicia called the agency for us and confirmed. Without our asking her, she also verified where and when the car would be delivered to us, and where and when we had to return it. This is the type of service they provide. The casita itself is lovely. It's difficult to find a king size bed in owner-managed properties, and we really appreciated having one. We understand the casita was originally built for Zoltan's father from Hungary, so it is very thoughtfully designed. The kitchen is wonderful and overlooks the garden. We also think guests will enjoy the city of Merida and the surrounding area. Talk to Zoltan and Alicia to find out what's there and how to get around. From this property, you'll be on the road to Chichen Itza, so that's certainly something you should experience. All in all, we'll definitely be going back -- we love Merida, and this is THE place to stay!

What a gem!!
What a gem!!
I recently spent 3 days here and was very impressed. The cottage was immaculately clean, stylishly decorated and well appointed. Everything I needed was already there. It truly is like a hidden oasis with all the beautiful plants and flowers, the pool, the palapa and the secure courtyard. The owners Zoltan and Alicia are a delightful couple, and their two children are adorable! They were extremely helpful with directions and advice about the area and both speak English fluently. The location is an ideal base point to go everywhere- it is a fairly straightforward drive via main highways to get to the airport, Ruins, Centro, and the beach areas of Progreso, and is perfect if you want privacy and don't want to endure the heat and the noise of the city. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and relatives and look forward to returning at some point in the future!

About the owner: My name is Zoltan. I was born and raised in Hungary and later moved to Key West, Florida, in the United States. Not too long after my move, I met a beautiful Mexican girl named Alicia. It was her dream to move back to Mexico, which we did. We have since married and have two Mexican-Hungarian children: Lilu, age 3, and Dominik, age 15 months. Shortly after we moved, I built our home, and later, this beautiful cottage – Hidden Paradise. Alicia and I have a small building contracting business specializing in building and renovating homes on the beaches near Merida. Merida itself is a colonial city established by the Spanish. Nowadays, it is also a modern city but it still honors its colonial heritage. We have found this to be the perfect place to raise our little family. We moved here not knowing what was in store for us – and we found paradise. We hope you will visit us and find paradise too. By the way, both of us are fluent in English. I am fluent in Hungarian and Alicia is fluent in Spanish.
Why the Owner Chose Merida:
Take a side trip to Merida from your visit to Cancun. We are on the Cancun-Merida road. In addition, Hidden Paradise is near the colonial city of Merida, Chichen Itza and other archeological sites, Yucatecan swimming holes called cenotes, and all the businesses you need for everyday life – supermarkets, the airport – even Walmart!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walking distance to a large hacienda which serves gourmet Yucatecan food Live near an authentic Mexican village Airport pick up and drop off available at extra charge Rental car available at one-half the cost of a rental agency
