Very nice being right on the ocean
Better than pictures
The property was wonderful! Comfortable home right on the beach With private pool lovely. The bed was super comfy the home had many areas to sit and chill while taking in the breezes. Jose and Maria Elaina greeted us and we could not ask for a better hosts. Highly recommend for families, friends or simply a romantic getaway.
Great house for a getaway
We rented this house last December for 8 days. The location is great, just close enough to the village but just far enough to relax.
The house looks better in real life than what the pictures on this site show.
We were 2 couples (so 4 adults) and the house was big enough to accommodate us comfortably with each couple having their own bedroom and bathroom.
The two terrasses are great, we spent all our evenings outside.
Lastly, Jose is a very caring and courteous owner which added to our experience.
I highly recommend this property!
We had the most memorable and incredible stay at the beautiful Casita De Chelem. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the amazing owners. We traveled with a large wedding group and had rented the 3 beautiful homes on the large lot. The owners made us feel right at home and took the time to give us all a personal tour of each beach house. They gave us detailed information about the amenities in the home as well as the local area. We greatly appreciated the extra care and hospitality they provided.
The Casita was a dream beach house! It far exceeded our expectations in the best way possible. As soon as we walked through the front door we fell in love. The beautiful décor, tropical breeze, breathtaking views and infinity pool overlooking the Gulf left us speechless. We felt like we were living in a postcard! La Casita was equipped with all we needed – kitchen supplies, a grill, comfortable living room and bedroom accommodations and WiFi! The home was wonderful, but we spent most of our time outside enjoying the perfect weather, pool, beach and beautiful sunsets. It was truly a dream vacation.
The owners are special people and we are so grateful for all they did to make us feel welcome at La Casita and in Mexico. Their commitment to providing the finest accommodations and personal service to all guests is what made our stay most memorable. We loved La Casita and cannot wait to plan our next trip back!
The casita is so charming, and is filled with creative details, great artwork done by the owner, comfortable living areas, and just about anything needed to make it a truly great experience. I was there for a month, and anytime some little thing needed attention the owner was very responsive and made sure that all was well. I would go back in a heart beat, as the house is in a great location close to both Chuburna and Chelem, not too far from Merida to go into the city for little day trips for sight seeing and shopping, a quick drive to Progreso for a good grocery, or a doctor if needed, etc. There are many little surprises in the area for dining, including a Thai Restaurant just down the road, and lots of friendly residents who are both locals and expats. The beach is wonderful, and a great place to watch the birds dive for fish, or an evening sunset.
Very quiet, peaceful location just steps from the ocean
Casita is plenty big for 2 couples and has the amenities necessary for cooking at home. WiFi is excellent if you opt for it and there are some English TV programs. House can be very noisy when the winds are strong due to the close proximity to the water. Lovely Mayan pool on the patio and shady areas to sit outside. Had a couple of minor issues and Mauricio and his father Jose were there immediately to attend to them. Very attentive owners and a lovely fruit basket and fresh flowers upon our arrival. Chelem is a very quiet village - no resorts, no nite clubs and Spanish speaking. Fresh fruit, fresh fish and groceries can be found in town as well as some good local restaurants A car is recommended if you wish to explore the other villages and visit Progresso. This is a destination to relax, read and watch the waves
