Recent Chuburna reviews

  • Jim R. Canada

    "The house was wonderfully equipped for our long-term stay (Linens, cookware, china, even paper products). The house is spacious and has plenty of comfortable furniture both inside and out on the huge, covered patio. The CD and DVD players that were advertised did not work, nor did the TV in the second bedroom. However, The large flat-screen TV (satellite) in the living room had both USB and HDMI ports to accommodate most any electronics you bring with you. The beach is beautiful, and for most days through the winter, practically deserted. Sun tanning in the loungers can be either on the beach or on the front deck. The house is 1 1/2 km from the village of Chuburna where we would walk to buy supplies or to stop at a restaurant for a drink and wonderfully generous "botanos" (Mexican version of tapas). It is cheap and easy to move around using the small vans (combis). We made at least one trip to Progreso each week for more extensive shopping, and one trip each week to Merida for its culture, sightseeing, or to take a tour to the many nearby, spectacular Mayan archeological sites. We also did 3-day side trips to the nearby cities of Valladolid and Campeche. Everywhere we went, everyone we met was unfailingly friendly, courteous and helpful. People back home could take a lesson from these wonderful people. This was a terrific choice for a long-term stay. It was quiet and peaceful and we got to feel like we were part of a community. Yet, we were only a few short kilometers from any social or cultural activities we might desire. If you are looking for a high-energy vacation surrounded by tourists like yourself, go to Cancun. If you want a beautiful and relaxed setting that is much closer to the "real" Mexico then this is the place for you."

  • Wonderful Family Vacation!!

    "Our family vacation was spent at Villa Mercedes 2 for four weeks this spring (Feb-Mar) and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience! Right from our first contact to the last our experience with Tony was exceptional; he was very friendly, professional, and helpful and was prompt to respond! The very large home was exactly as pictured with an extra set of clean bedding & towels for each guest. When you walk into the home you can see straight through to the pool, palm trees, white sandy beach, and right through to the Gulf of Mexico, it was very beautiful! The village of Chicxulub was exactly what we were hoping for, ‘Old Mexico’, not commercialized at all!! We found a few good restaurants in the village and also in Progreso which was only a 7 minute drive away or just buy fish from a local fisherman or fresh prawns from the gentlemen who stopped by the house ever couple days and cook in your own kitchen! At the north end of Merida there is a Costco for those who like to stock up, perishables can easily be purchased in either Chicxulub or Progreso. Apparently, there is over 5000 Cenotes in the area, a definite must to take in a few if you are in the Yucatan, they are breathtaking! Along with a tour of at least one of the ancient Mayan ruins, absolutely incredible! Visiting Merida & Uman along with eating fresh coconuts poolside were additional highlights of our trip! All in all a Great Vacation slowing down, enjoying the sun, sand and water! We hope to return again in the future!! Thank you again Tony for sharing our families vacation home with us!"

  • Lovely Vacation Beach House

    "We stayed in this beach house for three weeks, and had a great vacation. The roof top was fantastic for sun bathing and catching a breeze, listening to music, watching ships go by, watching the fishermen, watching birds, watching sunsets, watching stars. The beach was a thrill for seashell picking, what a wonderful selection! We felt so at home and so comfortable it was actually hard to leave! Even though the property manager doesn't live in Chelem, she did a great job of taking care of things for us(thanks Ivonne, you were awesome). The day we arrived Ivonne the property manager asked us if we had eaten yet and when we said no, she took us to a fantastic local restaurant La Terracita just a short ways from the house. I would recommend this house to others, I would also stay here again. The only thing we thought we might look for next time is a house with a pool, but only because the Norte's made it difficult to go in the water and apparently this has been an unusual year for so many Norte's. We found the beds hard to get used to, but after a week we adjusted. We love the local people, and also the next door neighbors Theresa and Bill are super wonderful:)"

  • Just what wie needed

    "We had the pleasure of staying here for 11 weeks this winter. The view is amazing and the home very comfortable. The village is filled with happy pleasant folks that always have a big smile and welcome. The local van service is cheap and efficient. We did most of our grocery shopping in Progreso. I would highly recommend this beach house for anyone who really wants to get away from the stresses of life. It is a slow pace and you soon relax and just enjoy life. The beach and ocean are beautiful. The owner Gina is amazing to work with and the property managers go out of their way to ensure you have a pleasant stay. I would rent a car from Gina so you can enjoy all the wonderful things around Merida."
