Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Las Tunas is a comfortable home owned by the creators of the leading tourist guide to the state of Yucatan 'Yucatan Today.' Check the website.

Setting:

*Las Tunas home in nestled in amongst some 300 coconut trees and sits on a large, spacious beach front property on the Gulf of Mexico.

*We sit apart from other homes - we have no wall-to-wall neighbors. Set off the beach you will have a wonderful view of the pool, dune and Gulf of Mexico.

*This is not a stark rental property, this is our home with sofas, chairs and beds that are comfortable!!

*Master bedroom: two queen beds, ceiling fan, AC

*2nd bedroom: two twin beds, ceiling fan, AC

*3rd bedroom: one king-size bed, ceiling fan, AC

Fully equiped large kitchen with ocean view.

Indoor living room and dining room, plus terrace lounge and dining areas.

Telchac Puerto is known for being small, slow and quiet, where you

will find the locals very friendly. Being such a small village, you

will feel at home quickly, get to know the shop keepers and them you.

The beaches are wide, sandy and great for walking. They are not

crowded with fishing boats, other tourists, break water sticks

every twenty feet and wall-to-wall houses like in Chicxulub and

Progreso. Telchac Puerto is for people looking for a place that is

more private and uncrowded.

Swimming is good all year long. The water is safe, clean Gulf water

with no rocks, currents or ebb tides. It is very swimmer friendly.

We have ceiling fans throughout our home and AC in the bedrooms, for an additional cost.

There is an international airport in Merida, with direct flights

from Houston, Miami, Dallas / Ft. Worth and Mexico City. It can be cheaper to fly into

Cancun, rent a car there and drive over - about four hours.

Having a car will make your stay much more enjoyable.

About Judy Abbott Mier y Teran

I came to Merida as a college sophomore 43 years ago for a three month Spanish course. I met a local, got married, started a successful business (Yucatan Today - THE tourist guide to the Yucatan), raised a family and am now doing philanthropical work in education in Telchac Puerto. Las Tunas is our beach home, but we can't be there year round, so we choose to rent it to others who will love and treat it as we do. A beach home that is lived in fares better with the salty atmosphere. Our onsite caretaker makes life at Las Tunas easy and enjoyable. Las Tunas is our home - not a cold rental. We only remove our clothes when we rent, so everything for your comfort is left there - pots and pans, serving dishes, wine glasses, cozy blankets, hammocks galore, coffee grinder.....everything. And, the caretaker will greet you with a warm meal on the day of your arrival. Welcome to Las Tunas.

Mexico Las Tunas Review

My family of six had a wonderful, peaceful, eight day vacation at Las Tunas over the February school break. We felt very comfortable at the villa, and absolutely loved the private, palm shaded territory leading to the pristine beach. Gaby, the caretaker was very helpful. She cleaned the house every couple of days and helped me with the laundry. The proximity to the city of Merida, the archeological sites and the fairytale cenotes was a great bonus. The nearby village was ideal for the small everyday grocery needs as well as midday meals of fresh seafood. It was a perfect vacation!:)

Owner's Response: Masha, Thank you for your kind words. I am so happy that you and your family felt the essence of Las Tunas. You describe it perfectly - it is special isn't it! Sometimes you can't capture the wonderful feeling of Las Tunas in a picture. Thank you for taking such good care of my home and I hope you come back again next year! It will be a pleasure to receive you!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Las Tunas is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. My two boys and I have just returned from a 10 day stay and our first visit to the Yucatan. Telchac Puerto is a quiet spot but perfectly located to visit all the major sites in the Yucatan. The house has everything you need for the perfect vacation, great pool and less than a minute stroll down to the ocean.

María Elena and her boys keep everything well maintained and the way the house has been built provides a great cooling breeze from the beach all day and night.

If you're looking for a quiet,relaxing, perfect spot you can't go wrong with selecting Las Tunas. Judy, the owner, is really easy to work with and answered every question that we had. She connected us with some of the expats in the area and we had a couple of great evenings in the Casa Del Mar bar. Make sure you pop in to see Briggette and Daren who will make you feel very welcome.

Two spectacular weeks in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and would highly recommend this villa. It was a pleasure booking and communicating with Judy. We were greeted by Maria Elena who showed us around and cooked us a lentil potage for dinner. What a wonderful welcome after our long plane ride. The directions were very clear to get to. Las Tunas was everything we needed for our two week stay with the furnished terrace, bbq, hammocks, pool and beach. We especially enjoyed the terrace, enjoying our morning coffee and evening drinks. We found the total experience quiet and relaxing, certainly out of the tourist "rat race". Dining in Telchac Puerto was great, so relaxed and authentic. The restaurants are not fancy but the meals and the seafood always fresh from the ocean and at very modest prices. The area is fascinating. Along the beach road we saw sea salt being harvested and lots of Flamingos and wildlife.

Maria Elena was fabulous. She cooked us meals when we wanted to eat in, and provided us all the information we needed to go into town or exploring. She was wonderful at keeping the whole property tidy and clean.

Las Tunas was everything that we expected and more.
