Recent Chuburna reviews

    "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."

  • Relaxing, beautiful 10 days!

    "Our youngest graduated from high school so this was family getaway. We have close friends in Merida, so we wanted to be close to the city, yet on the beach. There were 6 of us and everyone had an amazing time. The house was everything that was advertised. We spent most of our time outside in pool, beach and courtyard. We prepared meals outside and enjoyed all of our meals there as well. The sunsets were spectacular!! La Playa, a wonderful seafood restaurant was 2 doors down the beach. Property manager David was awesome and Herb the groundskeeper was attentive and so very helpful! We loved the 2 canine residents and felt safe and secure every minute. We truly cannot wait to book this home again! We rented a car at the airport in Merida from La Curva (thank you Joaquin) which made our trips to Merida so very easy! We stopped at WalMart and Costco in Merida and stocked up on our first day and then bought locally in Chelem and Progresso after that. Thank you Pat, David, Herb and Homeaway for a wonderful vacation."

  • Incredible Place and Superb Hosts!!!!! Pure Paradise!

    "This was an incredible stay at an immaculate house right on the beach with a wonderfully large and comfortable pool and incredible beaches and views! The bungalow is in great shape and has all the modern amenities of home. What a wonderful hidden gem of a place. Our hosts were so very organized and responsive both before, during, and after our trip! Had a car to drive also, which is a must! Nice fishing pier walking distance down the beach. Great restaurants and so much peace and quiet! I would highly recommend staying at this charming abode. Thank you so much!"

  • 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!"
