Are you looking for a quiet getaway on the beach? You will agree that our Villa de Brisas Marinas - Sea Breeze Villa - is just the place. We discovered the charming fishing village of Telchac Puerto and would like to share our beautiful home there with you.
The villa is set steps from the Gulf of Mexico with beach weather all year round. As you enter the front gate through the covered patio with its lovely mosaic floor, to the gate to the beach, you will be on your way to paradise. Sit under our beachfront palapa and enjoy the blue water and white sand and no crowds!
You will enjoy the open floor plan designed and tastefully appointed by local architect, Gabriela Cornelio. From Mexican tile floors, the 5 sliding glass doors to the exquisite tile accents in the kitchen and baths, you are surrounded by the beauty of the sea and the charm of local décor. The living/dining area is spacious and opens with two sets of sliding glass doors to a covered patio overlooking our private beach. We provide all that you need from linens to a well-equipped kitchen. We placed a gas cooktop in the counter, so that if you choose, you may prepare a meal while enjoying the ocean view and the company of your friends and family. It also has a split-system air conditioner.
We have three bedrooms, all with ceiling fans, and three full bathrooms. There are two bedrooms with queen size beds; one room has a balcony. These bedrooms share a bath. The expansive master bedroom with king bed, ensuite bath and large walk-in closet overlooks the master balcony. The balcony has a breathtaking view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Each of the bedrooms has its own, split-system air conditioner. The third full bath is on the first floor.
Activities and Attractions:
The village of Telchac Puerto is about 2-3 km from the villa. You can walk to the center plaza along the beach, or walk or drive the main road into town. There are small markets with fruits and vegetables, liquor stores, a hardware store, restaurants and other small markets.
We hope you spend your time relaxing, swimming, strolling the beach, enjoying the birds and shell collecting. The beaches are wide and inviting and the water is warm and safe. The Mayan culture is everywhere from X-Cambo ( a 10 minute drive) or Dzibichaltun (30 minutes) to Chichen Itza ( about 1½ hours) and many others. You can also explore the many villages that are nearby. You may choose to spend a day in the lovely city of Merida (45 minutes), especially the historic center on Sundays when local artisans display in the main square. Merida, the capital city of the Yucatan (Pop. 1 million), offers beautiful colonial architecture, parks, museums, restaurants and shopping, and if you must, Wal Mart, Costco, JC Penney, Sears, fast food, etc. The port city of Progreso (25 minutes) is where the cruise ships dock, with a mile-long pier. Along the Gulf in Progreso, you may walk the Malecon and enjoy a variety of shops and restaurants.
Our property manager, who is fluent in English and Spanish, may arrange fishing trips or lazy rides through the nearby lagoons to visit the cenotes (underground springs) where you can view flamingos and many other birds and wildlife.
