  • Celebrate Celestun!

    "Awesome house. It is a perfect place for those that want to experience Real Mexico. Beautiful home in a private setting with all the amenities. Great location for Birding. The beach is amazing and totally private. Celestun is a wonderful small town with very welcoming people. Loved the house with great views, ocean breezes and a great back deck- Outdoor grill, sea toys and Kayaks make it so easy you never have to leave home! Would highly recommend it to people who want off the beaten path, beauty and solitude. All around great rental experience from Pascal and Robbie Thanks so much!"

  • 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."

  • Great location, great house, great service

    "We stayed in this lovely house for 5 nights while travelling round the Yucatan peninsula, and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The location is excellent, walkable to the local squares, shops, restaurants, etc. There is a fabulous ice cream parlour just a 2 minute walk down the road. Although a car is not needed in Merida, we were travelling so had a hire car which enabled us to have day trips to Cuzuma cenotes (excellent directions provided in the house) and Celestum to see the flamingos. I note someone else commented on difficulties with the garage entrance being blocked and I must say we didn't have any problems with this at all. Access was never a problem and it was very easy to reverse out on to the street. Excellent service was provided with booking, payment, local activity information etc. We were greeted on arrival and made very welcome. All communication was very quick and efficient. Two specific points- firstly the second bedroom is across the courtyard and separate from the main house but very private, secure and enclosed. This suited us fine as enabled our 2 grown up daughters to have a bit of space from us parents! Secondly, in response to a comment Jane made under another review 'Parque St Lucia ... where there are wonderful restaurants and shops, and Yucatan dances performed on a Thursday night and Sunday lunch time'. We stayed Thursday to Tuesday and this square, a few minutes walk away, was fabulous. Local dances, local mayan ball game, so atmospheric that I would highly recommend trying to include Thursday and Sunday in any stay if at all possible. This was our favourite place in Mexico, very friendly, plenty to do but not necessarily on the usual tourist route especially for europeans- we met no other visitors from the UK while there. A must for experiencing the wonderful mexican lifestyle,food and hospitality. Would love to return and nowhere better to stay in Merida. Will certainly recommend to friends and family."

  • Wonderful and Charming Stay on the Beach

    "We spent ten days in El Cuyo, a nice little fishing village about a 2.5 hour drive from the Cancun airport. Before our trip I had many questions which Yahaira was great about answering in a timely manner. We had a little trouble connecting with the rental caretakers when we first arrived, but that was because our cell phones didn't work. But Sarah and Gabriel showed up about 15 minutes after we arrived and got us settled in. They checked in on us almost daily, and even offered to give us a tour of the town. The house is great! Lots of room and all the cooking utensils we needed and it was very clean. The location is great, especially if you do not want to do the touristy thing. The house is located down a quiet (bumpy) road, and almost every time we swam we had the entire beach to ourselves, as far as we could see. Swim towels are provided for you, as well as towels for your showers, sheets and dish towels (I was impressed that they even provided new bars of soap and a new scrub pad for the kitchen!). The only suggestion I have is that they provide more fans. We had four, but two didn't work very well. I realize that Mexico in July is very hot, but with no air conditioning the downstairs room was very hot at night. We even kept all of the doors and windows open at night but the air just couldn't get back to that room. But other than that, the rental was wonderful and we loved our very comfortable stay. We took some day trips to the ruins and cenotes and enjoyed some of the small quaint local restaurants. The locals were very nice and we had a wonderful vacation."
