About Letty Ayala
I was born in Merida, Yucatan. I now live in the United States. We have 4 children and enjoyed our summers at the beach with them and they plan on doing the same with their kids.
Letty Ayala purchased this House in 1995
Why Letty Ayala chose Chuburna Puerto
I spent entire summer vacations, meaning July and August, as a child and teenager, with family and friends, on the beautiful and tranquil beaches of Chuburna, Yucatan, and I wanted my children to have the same great experience and memories that I have of those great times. My husband and I also plan on spending months at a time there when we retire and plan on bringing our grandchildren along to continue the family tradition.
What makes this House unique
The tranquil emerald ocean, the beautiful clean beaches, the friendly local people, and now the new foreign neighbors, are the perfect combination for any length of vacation for family with children or long stay for retired people. Plus there is so much of the Yucatan to explore, and most of it during day trips. It is a great place to enjoy for simple people surrounded by simple friendly and hospitable local people...not a tourist trap.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great little casita
This pretty casita is located around 20 minutes walk from Chuburna Puerto, the nearest village. There you can buy groceries, beer, fish and some meat, but there is no big supermarket. The house has an excellent layout, with two bedrooms and a nice open living area where you can cook while chatting to others in the seating area. A large window has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico and the sea comes up to a few meters from the house.
There are plenty of plastic chairs outside, two good sun loungers and a big outside picnic table, so we spent lots of time every day on the beach. The owner, Leticia, responded immediately to our request to the Property Manager (Carlos) to repair the corroded stove by buying and installing a new one, so we were impressed by the quality of service from her.
There is a regular Combi - Collectivo - service from Chuburna Puerto into Chelem and Progreso, which are the next bigger villages to the East of Chuburna Puerto. Chelem has more restaurants and shops then Chuburna. Progreso is much bigger with two large supermarkets and is a tourist destination for large cruise boats from Galvaston and Alabama twice a week.
We really enjoyed the peaceful, quiet nature of Chuburna Puerto. It is right at the end of the development line along this part of the coast. It easy to make friends here as the 'Gringos' are very friendly -- some rent and some live here permanently, and there are no big hotels for tourist types. We stayed in February and most of the houses are unoccupied, except for Mexican holidays when parties arrive from Merida and enjoy lots of music and swimming all around, usually for a couple of days.
Thank you very much for sharing your vacation experience in our "Great Little Casita". I appreciate your comments and description of the house, the area, the locals, and of the new residents, American and Canadians, that have recently discovered our small piece of paradise. You described your experience very well from a guest's perspective in a simple and sincere manner. Thank you for the opportunity to have you as our guests and we hope to have you all come visit the beautiful and hospitable Yucatan again! Muchas gracias!
Sun In The Morning And The Moon At Night
This is a home for beach lovers
Early morning coffee on the front deck.
So very quiet and peaceful.
Birds calling to each other, Pelicans dive bombing for breakfast..and Dolphins making a splash.
Walk across the sand and wiggle your toes in the gulf wates...find sea glass and shells.
After a glorious sunset wait for the moon and stars.
If you ever need any help call Carlos. (he lives next door)...he has been the caretaker for many years.
The owners are just an e-mail away.
Miss Kitty (my older cat) and I have loved being here for 2 years.
We hope to return after visiting our family in the states.
Come and enjoy!
We think you will love it too!
Ms. Suzy, I could not have done it better myself...Thank you for your wonderful description of our small piece of paradise and you sharing your personal experience during your 2 year stay with us. We are very glad to have shared our family vacation home with you and Ms. Kitty, and look forward to your return in the future. "Mi casa es su casa". Muchas gracias, Letty
Exactly as described in the rental information.
The photos showed exactly what was in the house upon arrival. Very clean and well maintained. The caretaker was always just a phone call away and very helpful with showing where many things were located in the house. Water tank, cleaning supplies if needed, etc. The owner was always helpful when contacted, I have recommended this place and the house to my friends and relatives in the US and would be open to contact with anyone who would ask. The beaches were clean and uncluttered, shelling was wonderful. My favorite restaurant "Triton"" served the best Boqinete and Gruper ''de la plancha''(grilled) service and setting were perfect. Thank you Beautiful Yucatan for the best pre/retirement stay ever.
Thank you very much for your kind words regarding our beachfront vacation home and for your appreciation of our property caretaker, Carlos. I am very glad you enjoyed our home and your words just reassure us that our small piece of paradise in the beautiful Yucatan was meant to be shared. Thanks again, and we are very glad that you fell in love, just like we did, with the beautiful Yucatan and its hospitable people. Letty
Stayed 7 months 2011
We very much enjoyed our time in Chuburna. The 7 months spent on the beach front house were wonderful. The beach is large and so empty .Carlos the caretaker is always available and such a friendly person. We loved it.
Andy & Loretta,
Glad to know your stay was enjoyable in the beautiful Yucatan! It was very nice meeting you both during my short visit to Merida. As soon as we get all of our kids in college, my husband and I are looking forward to spending a lot of time there and are happy to know we will be having you all as neighbors in Chuburna, Yucatan. Muchas gracias!
