Cozy home, perfect for 2 or 4 people, very comfortable living space, furnished for all your needs, with 2 bedrooms and large bathroom. Beautiful beach for your enjoyment with views to take your breath away. Plenty of sandy backyard with lots of palm trees with plenty of enclosed parking space. One of the best kept properties in the area. Caring, loyal, and responsible property caretaker, 20 years of service taking care of our family and our guests. Within 5 minute drive from the small fishing village of Chuburna Puerto. This area of the Yucatan is uniquely different from the frenzy of Cancun! The locals are genuinely hospitable and this is definitely not a tourist trap. Many American and Canadians already call this area home, some for the winter and some have purchased homes and live here.
Our beach house is located between the friendly fishing villages of Chelem and Chuburna. Chelem and Chuburna offer small restaurants, grocery stores and fruit and meat markets for your daily needs. This property is located 35 minutes from the beautiful colonial city of Merida (airport code is MID).
This beach house was remodeled during the summer of 2008, and furnished mostly with new contents, including the kichen ware and appliances. It is completely furnished for great comfort and relaxation, for a week or months at a time.
Our property caretaker, a trustworthy individual who has worked for us for 20 years, lives 2 houses down and is accessible via cellular phone. His mother and wife also cook and have laundry service for an additional charge. House cleaning can also be arranged for an additional charge.
Yucatan is known for its hospitable and extremely friendly local people. This beautiful beachfront house is located among a combination of international neighbors including American, British, and Canadians, whom have found this area to be beautiful, tranquil and friendly enough to call it home. It is not a tourist trap, it is a perfect piece of paradise to completely relax and get away from it all and yet close enough for other activities. The port of Progreso, 15 minutes away, has water activities, shopping and restaurants. And the beautiful colonial city of Merida, 35 minutes away, has many shopping options, great variety of restaurants and several free cultural shows. There are also many Mayan ruins, underground rivers (cenotes), haciendas, and numerous unique towns and ports which can be visited as day trips.
Our family has vacationed in Chuburna, with our 4 children, for 20 years now. We plan to retire there someday and start enjoying it again with our grandchildren. Anybody that visits the Yucatan is sure to fall in love with its beautiful land, ocean, and its uniquely friendly people! We hope to be able to share our small piece of paradise with you all!

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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
We enjoyed a delightful, peaceful week here in November. The house is light, airy,and colorful.The kitchen well equipped.The water was warm enough for swimming, and the breeze blowing through the house was comfortable.
