"The villa was just like pictured on VRBO no surprises. The Wi-Fi was excellent. There is no central air but we didn't need it. The house was designed with air flow in mind and it was great. The Gonzalo and Olivia the caretakers were always on hand to help with whatever was needed.
The owner Ana Patricia was amazing!! She went above and beyond for us, a little mishap with arrival times. She picked us up and took us shopping before going to the villa what a plus. she speaks excellent English and was so informative. The bottle of wine was such a nice added touch when we arrived.
About Chicxulub. It is a small fishing village and when you read on trip advisor and else where that little English is spoken in the area they are not kidding. But we knew just enough to get by. The locals were so nice and always tried their best to help us. There was not a lot going on in the evenings. No bars or restaurant were open in the evenings and very few during the day. But it was a short ride to Progresso for those evening outings. If you are just wanting a very quiet, relaxing vacation this place is for you. We had a great time and would recommend to friends.
Thanks Ana Patricia for sharing your home with us."

"Casa Kaana has everything one needs for a relaxing, carefree holiday in Mexico. Large rooms and nice and airy. The focus of our stay was the outdoor area by the pool. As mentioned by others the pool area is private, easily accessible, clean and relaxing to loll around. BBQ was great. The location of the house, one row from the beach, is a very short distance to walk. The property manager, Joan, was excellent. Extremely helpful in not only the workings of the house but in informing us to happenings in the area. Wifi and use of the house cellphone were a bonus. This was our fourth stay in this area of Mexico and Casa Kaana was easily the best home we have stayed in.......everything was as advertised and all appliances worked."

"Just a quick note to offer my most sincere thanks to Mary and Neil!
Mary, your home is impeccable in every capacity! From location (on a lovely quiet street just 2 ½ blocks from the gorgeous Paseo, near restaurants, cafes, shopping and a number of plazas with their music and dancing and churches and museums) to décor (elegant and clean, with enviable fixtures, comfortable amenities and a clean flow from front to back) to the easy livability of the property (a fabulous home that feels like home), we were enchanted with every detail! The back patio was a lovely relaxing retreat where wine flowed and al fresco dining was in order after a long day, walking gorgeous Merida and discovering the many fabulous attractions. The well appointed kitchen is the hub of this lovely house, where meals were prepared using market goods from the many markets within walking distance. Thank you for offering this wonderful home!
And Neil, thank you for your time and service! We appreciated the many tips and the offers of assistance. Thankfully, no assistance was necessary due to the perfection of the house, neighborhood and city. But it was nice to know you were there in the case that we needed you. And indeed, opening up the house and allowing that gorgeous cross-breeze to ventilate meant we didn’t even need to use the fans very often, let alone the AC.
Thank you both! Our stay in Merida was simply perfect!"

"My husband and I just spent a week at Recuperacion. Our first trip to this area of the Yucatan peninsula. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.
Terry (the owner) was so helpful. From our first inquiry about the property she provided valuable information and recommendations. Her insight and advice on everything from rental cars, to resturants, to the "don't miss" attractions was perfect.
The property has a fantastic local manager. Joan drove us around Chelem to show us the grocery stores, reaturants, where to buy the freshest fruits and vegetables, and of course the night life.
This is a "Lonely Planet," off the beaten path kind of place. The beautiful house is situated on the Gulf of Mexico in a small fishing village on the Yucatan peninsula. There is a fairly large number of ex pats in the area so if you don't speak Spanish (my husband and I don't speak a word) there are plenty of people to help translate. The local inhabitants are so friendly and helpful (to the point of drawing pictures for us if necessary ).
Chelem is not a resort town. Is a small fishing village filled with wonderful people. We drove all over the peninsula. We walked the beach and the village at night. Everyone we met was incredibly helpful. Chelem felt as safe as home.
So if you want to disengage from the rat race make this your next vacation. You won't regret it."
