“cool and quaint beach retreat”

person found this review helpful

We had planned to stay in Merida for 30 days but the heat was oppressive. We searched on Trip Advisor and were surprised to find this casita available for the 3 weeks we had left in Yucatan. Not only is this property clean and well appointed with everything you need supplied in the kitchen and living area, there is a lovely pool and the grounds are beautiful and there is a nice outside sitting area. The beach is a short 3 minute walk and it is very nice. The owners have gone out of their way to make sure that we have everything we need but have also been a wealth of information on our fact finding mission. We would highly recommend this property if you are planning a trip to the Yucatan coast and we will definitely be back ourselves.

“A fabulous place, perfect for one or two.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My adult daughter and I stayed here for a week in early January. The hosts are wonderfully helpful in recommending things to do, they put us in touch with a private tour of one of the pyramid sites. The casita has everything one needs, including a private entrance, but access to the pool and terrace area.

“A slice of paradise.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This rental is a spotless, beautifully decorated slice of paradise. A self-contained home away from home. Well equipped, safe, secure and lovely. The owners are readily available to accommodate any requests/requirements to ensure your stay is as wonderful as possible. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for an alternative to the "resort" experience, a chance to enjoy "real" Mexico and Mexican culture. Chelem is a friendly, casually beautiful village with all amenities. 45 minutes from the spectacular Merida, Capital of the Yucatan. 15 minutes from the fun Port town of Progresso. So much to see and do!

“A little Gem - in Chelem”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in September 2013

I actually stayed at this beautiful little Gem before they advertised on Trip Advisor. I found the ad privately. The hosts are wonderful and very knowledgeable of places to go and things to do, and their 4 legged pooch I believe was called Sugar came to greet us every day which I enjoyed. The hosts even left us some eggs/sugar/spices and a few staples to start us off which I thought was a lovely touch. Maria the housekeeper was very friendly and did our clothes up fresh at a reasonable price for the trip home. I'm actually sorry to see my Gem in Chelem being advertised on Trip Advisor as it will probably be more difficult to get a booking once more people know about it.

Thank you for your kind comments about our casita. Lovely that you enjoyed our Sugar (she was bereft when you left . . . sitting mournfully outside your door each morning for several days)! We recently adopted another puppy who is coming along nicely and is now almost as big as "your Sugar". I am sure you will love Panda as well when you next come to Mexico. Hope you make it back soon!!! Every good wish, Eric and Marilyn P.S. Gardens have gone crazy with the May rains, but weather has been beyond perfect for the past weeks.
