About the property

Great beach home on Gulf of Mexico in San Benito, Mexico. Secluded beach where you rarely see anyone, only the occasional fishing boat. White, sandy beach--walk out into the Gulf 100 yards before water is above shoulders. Perfect for long distance swimming.

Beautifully covered and protected patio overlooking the Gulf with dining tables. Refreshing, filtered, staired pool allows for easy entry and seating on steps with built-in chaises at far end. Chaise lounges and chairs for lots of seating and sun worshipping. Courtyard has gardens and sheltered dining and sunning. Perfect for those breezy days or cooler nights.

Z'uno is an ideal retreat for a couple with the occasional guest(s) or a family with a child or two. Stay a month at these great rates. Wonderful location for exploring Mayan ruins, Merida and the Yucatan Emerald Coast. Excellent restaurants nearby, Technotel and San Benito Grill located within 2 km, and more good dining in Progreso on the Malecon and in Merida. Spa available at Yucatan Reef Hotel.

A wonderful month in San Benito

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Z'Uno for the month of February. The house is as pictured on the website and it is very well equipped. If we had any problems, both Lisa and the property manager were always available. We discovered several great restaurants in Progresso and Telchac which are about 25 kms away. There was also a very good restaurant at the Techno Hotel only 1/2 a km away.

Shopping in Progresso for our food was easy and there was lots to do near by and some short drives away. There is a ruin Xcambo and a nature retreat with flamingoes in a salt marsh within 15 minutes.

The weather was amazing all month, but there was often a lot of seaweed either on the beach or in the water. We were told this was Mexico's "snow." When swimmable, the Gulf was perfect. Not too cold, no under toe and pretty clear. The pool was a wonderful way to cool off and relax after our daily walks along the beach.

The house was beautiful and an amazing place to stay with our kids.

We just got home from 12 days in the Yucatan. This rental was centrally located to many Mayan Ruins, cenotes and other beautiful towns full of historic buildings. The house itself is semi isolated but there is a hotel down the beach that serves good food. I recommend renting a car and seeing all this area has to offer. Thank you was an amazing vacation.

Awesome spot for a quiet winter retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located along the gulf coast, close enough to Progreso for all shopping, dining, and banking needs yet far enough away as to not feel crowded. The winter months are the slower season there, we saw almost no one at all on the beach the entire month we stayed. House is comfy as is the bed, and the owner and caretaker very easy to deal with and communicate with.

Our perfect kind of house for sun and relaxation! The house and pool along with patio door in bedroom that lets you hear the ocean all night! What else do you need to get away from winter? WIFI worked perfectly hot water was iffy for us for a few days but we found if you turned on the sink along with shower the pressure was enough to bring the hot water to the shower. We had a fabulous vacation. Thank You!!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a wonderful time. We recently installed a "hot water on demand" system that apparently needs some dialing in. My property manager is ensuring that it is working properly. Thanks for your review!
