Our vacation home is a spacious condo, located on a 2000+ acre property slated to become a golf resort. Its approximately 4 km from the Gulf of Mexico but its true charm is the Yucatan jungle surrounding it. Its a 3rd floor condo with great views of the Yucatan jungle. There are 2 large bedrooms, adjoining baths in each, with a fully furnished kitchen and 2 large patios, one facing the east off of the living room, one facing the south off the dining room with a view of the pool. There is also a small patio off of one of the bedrooms. There is almost always a breeze which blows in off the Gulf from the Northeast. The bird life is plentiful and changes with the seasons. Not even having to leave the comfort of your patio, you can watch the orioles, flycatchers, swallows and others, and hear the chachalacas calling each other. Coatimundi along with many other mammals are regular visitors and the shy Yucatan Jaguar has been spotted on the property from one of the many well marked paths. Peaceful and tranquil would be fitting descriptions with all the comforts of a home either north of the Gulf or across the Atlantic. If you're needing a quiet stress free holiday, this might appeal to you in a big way. Dzemul is the closest town, about 9 km away, where fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and other essentials can be found. The town has a largely Mayan population, and here, life is simple and unencumbered. Almost every house has a yard for growing fruit and vegetables. Just to the north is the Laguna Rosada where flocks of birds, both sedentary and migratory hang out. Flamingos are almost always present, trolling the shallow bottoms for morsels.
Our guests have the full usage of the large, 1000 sq ft condo. The condo is completely furnished and ready to enjoy. Its on the 3rd floor so there are 2 flights of stairs.
Merida, the big city with an international airport and almost a million souls, is a short 45 minute drive. There you can find anything you might need with Costco, Sam's club, Home Depot, Walmart and upscale departments stores. Motul and Progreso are cities both within a 30 minutes drive, also with plenty of shopping. There are many close by Mayan villages as well as ruins and cenotes for a true cultural experience.
The condo property has a full time grounds keeper and you will be introduced to the property by our assistant who is fluent in English and Spanish or ourselves .
There are several full time neighbors on the property from Canada and the US. The closest towns are Dzemul, Telchac Puerto, Telchac Pueblo and Motul. You can find most of what you need in these. Merida has an international airport. Our guests have chosen both Merida and Cancun for their arrival into the area however Cancun is a drive or bus ride of about 4 hours.
Having a vehicle is highly recommended however, our assistant will also be able to help get you around or help with any questions you may have. He charges a fee for his services but is very reasonable. Since the condominium is a bit remote in the Yucatan jungle, having a vehicle is highly recommended. Our assistant can provide many services such as taking you on excursions to ruins, cenotes or local villages.
