About Joanne Dueck
We are Canadians who have lived in Progreso Yucatan since February 2008. When we were deciding where we were going to move, we wanted a place where there weren't too many foreigners, but just enough so that we didn't feel isolated. We have wonderful Mexican neighbours and live in a real community. Our goal was to live in a real Mexican town and learn to speak Spanish. We love this area, the kind people, the many attractions and the warm weather year round.
Joanne Dueck purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Joanne Dueck chose Progreso
We chose this property for it's proximity to the Malecon. There is no need for a car here, you are well located to walk to restaurants and stores. A bus route is close by and a taxi from downtown costs just a couple of dollars.
What makes this Apartment unique
Ask about our lower level unit which is wheel chair accessible without being institutional. There are grab bars beside the toilet and in the shower. The shower is wheel-in. Renting two or all three of our suites could make this property a perfect place for a large family while giving everyone a little private space as well.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Property is large, functional and very well located. Host were fantastic.
Could not have been treated better. We love Costco Dark Roast coffee, mentioned it to Joanne when we booked and there was a large can of it on the kitchen table when we arrived with a kg of brown sugar.. The large 15 x 15 deck overlooking the pool was our coffee spot most mornings She even got up to see us off at 5 AM on our departure day.
Need I say more...………...

Close to beach.
Nice studio and swimming pool. Well stocked.
Perfect place to enjoy & explore Progreso!
We were welcomed warmly by owner Joanne, who left us some fresh fruits & other goodies to start our vacation! We rented the 2 bedroom apt in the building. It was clean & well maintained & what was missing Joanne provided. The apt came with weekly maid service which was a wonderful bonus! It took us a bit of getting used to not having air conditioning in the kitchen & living room but we soon acclimatized! We enjoyed siesta during the hot afternoons ( in our air conditioned bedroom) or read our books, in the pool to beat the heat! Location was amazing! We were a block off the Malecon so it wasn't noisy at night but twice daily we went on long walks! There were great restaurants & many things to see! Compared to the US or CA dollar it was much cheaper to eat & drink there. Progreso has a large ex-pat & snowbird community-- that was very enjoyable. My husband played Darts several times a week ( at Faces & Le Genuina) & I enjoyed Zumba most mornings in the Plaza ( 5 min from home). We would definitely return to Oasis Del Mar & recommend it to others. If you are one who likes total privacy then the shared pool, palapa & backyard space may not be for you but we enjoyed all our fellow neighbours over the month.
We have stayed 2 months in Joanne's beautiful 2 bedrooms house. The kitchen is very well stocked if you want to eat in, there was plenty of linen, great outdoor patio and a pool. We found the level of cleaniness of the inside and outside to be above average of what we have experienced in other rented houses. Progreso 's malecon is only at 5 minutes walk making it easy to eat out or go for a walk at night. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to friends and family. Joanne is a great host, and always makes it important to make us fell at 'home away from home'.
Oasis del Mar - truly an Oasis!
This was our second visit to Progreso.
The web-site showed pics and a write-up about the 2 one BR suites.
We rented the 'new' 2 BR 2 Bath section where the owners used to live. Super beds, linens, towels, CD/DVD/book library, etc etc!
It is huge, well equipped and comfortable. It was great because we rented for 2 weeks and our daughter and grandson joined us for a week. The immaculate pool, patios and courtyard are amazing. Nearby is an OXXO ( 7-11 ish) and a block from the Malecon - a great breezy walk to downtown in 10 minutes. Try the Fish-Fish restaurant nearby - a spotlessly clean, friendly restaurant with a varied menu and wonderful staff.
Progreso fills up in summer, and a bit on cruise ship days, but otherwise, it is a supremely safe, relaxing and friendly beach town.
We would highly recommend this property - Joanne is the host with the most. She really makes her guests feel welcome.
We are in the state of Yucatan, close to the capital and colonial city of Merida. Enjoy the beach, interact with the friendly locals, visit nearby Mayan ruins, enjoy a round of golf, go birding, kayaking in the mangrove swamp, or relax in our beautiful pool. Experience theatre, symphony, ballet and many cultural experiences in Merida, only half an hour away. We look forward to welcoming you to Oasis del Mar!
