What a Great Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent almost the entire month of June at this great house. It is in a very quite town with very friendly people. You are only 30 min away from Progresso where the cruise ships come in so if you need the night life and bargain shopping it is not far from you. We loved every minute of staying. We had 16 people at one point that stayed in the house and there is plenty of bedrooms and seating for everyone. The pool is a nice added bonus because it is right out the back door and on the beach. The water is only a few yards from the pool and patio. There is plenty of beach to walk down for exercise because all you do is lay around and relax. The house is about a 15 min walk to the main part of Telchec. I could have stayed for much longer and we will be going back!!
