The perfect getaway
From the moment we arrived, we were impressed with this property. It is peaceful and private, and very safe and secure. We found the master bed to be very comfortable, and the full kitchen was great for cooking our own meals. Of course, the pool is wonderful for cooling off, and you can walk right out to the beach and collect shells. The nearest town to buy supplies for the house and kitchen is Progresso, a 20 minute drive. There are local little 'corner stores' in Chuburna, but they only carry very simple treats and very basic things. We enjoyed renting the car that can be provided for this home. All in all, a great experience staying here, and we would definitely love to return!
Lokal area, great beach
The pool and the beach are great. Only a few people at the beach and lot of privacy.
It was a very local and unpolished part of Mexico. You should drive to find restaurants and supermarkets that fit our western expectation and it was not so easy. Progreso however was fine.
Both the owner Gina and the hostess Veronica was very helpful both before and during our stay and Gina was very fair to us, when we had to shorten our stay due to unexpected circumstances. Veronica speeks English very well.
The property is a quiet little town, as advertised. Easy drive to Progresso and Mérida. Very nice break before the new year.
Great little beach house
This is a great little beach house located in the quiet fishing village of Chuburna Puerto, about 40 mins outside of Merida. In August when we stayed the water colour in the Gulf of Mexico was amazing. The water is flat calm in the morning, ideal for stand up paddling or swimming/snorkeling until the thermal breeze comes in any time from midday onwards with its welcome cooling effect and absolutely fantastic for windsurfing or kiteboarding (although there is not much space for launching a recovering a kite here - better to drive down to the Playon as the locals call it just east of the fishing port where you can drive your vehicle right on to the beach). The thermals bring white capping conditions, probably around a force 4. The house is cozy and as advertised although, like us, you will most likely spend more time outside in the sea, on the terrace or in the very generously sized swimming pool. The property has some tall coconut palms, two of which provide welcome shade to the pool area in the morning hours. Be careful not to sit or stand directly under the coconuts, a family member had a near-miss with a falling coconut! The bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable and sensibly beach functional, in August it was nice to have AC in the bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and we made use of it. The large fridge with ice and water dispenser from the purified water jug is a very welcome feature. Despite being the height of summer season the area was not crowded, with only Sunday seeing a nice little influx of friendly local families enjoying bathing in the sea. We arranged a boat trip and the captain picked us up right in front of the house - we really recommend this as it show you a side of the area that you wouldn't see from the land. He took us to the little fishing port to the west of Chuburna and then further west to a lovely little area of flats and mangroves where we saw flamingos, cormorants and snowy egrets among other birds. Pelicans make frequent fly-bys and we spied lots of spotted eagle rays and even a sea turtle only a few hundred feet off the beach. There are a series of sand bars off the beach, so the water goes a little deeper and then much shallower again, it is well worth going out deeper as the water tends to be clearer further from the shore. We ate all our meals on the terrace which is furnished with a white plastic table and chairs - so ideal for wet bathing suits and super easy to clean plus great sea view
We had a fantastic stay at Gina & Matt’s beach home in March. The property is on a quiet beach front area of Chuburna, with a choice of mini supermarkets and restaurants within minutes walking. The house had everything we needed, from the air con in the bedrooms to the valuables safe and as for the pool, just divine!!!! The locals smiled, spoke to us and we felt very safe.
Thanks to Gina for processing our booking and answering questions so promptly, Ken (property manager) and Merida Expat Services who were our airport pick up and tour heroes.
We would definitely recommend this property and would love to revisit.
The view really is as good as it looks
This is a well equipped and nicely furnished villa with surprisingly good wifi. Most of all, it has a lovely pool and a sea view to die for. So, all in all, a very nice property in a great location.
Added to that, the property manager could not be more helpful. The owners, who are a dream to deal with, provide a comprehensive guide to the area – though it ought to add if you order lunchtime drinks most of the local restaurants cover your table with small plates of food for free, and you should eat early to be sure of finding somewhere of an evening.
We would have hoped for more than only two wine glasses, could not find a corkscrew and would have liked more than two sun loungers. But that is no reason not to recommend and to know we’d do it again, at the drop of a sun hat, if we could
