We have the perfect beach apartment for you! So much space (and storage): bedroom, living room, dining room, bathroom, and kitchen. Stay a few days, a week, or for a few months. Settle in and start your Yucatan beach experience in CHELEM, Mexico. Your apartment is located within town and easy walking to stores, restaurants, and the beach. No car needed! Plus, consistently good internet to help keep you connected. This is a great place to taste life in Mexico.

The space
Located in the town of Chelem, we have a space that feels like a real home (because we live here too!) Our home is classic beach style: tile floors, louvered windows, simple living from an earlier Mexico. We have set up our home so that you can enjoy being here with little hassle but have also added the conveniences that make a vacation fun (like a pool). Walking, we can get to the beach in about 30 seconds and it takes us less than 5 minutes to restock our needed food necessities (milk, cheese, drinks, snacks) at the local store (owned by a family who works and lives here also). If you are looking for a real, honest, simple experience in Mexico, surrounded by good people, you will find it here. We live among the locals, we are locals. This is our home and we love sharing the experience of Chelem and the Yucatan with our guests, who soon become our friends.
Contact us with any of your questions- we will help, regardless if this is the perfect stay for you or not.

Where you’ll be

Chelem, Yucatan, Mexico

Chelem is a quaint and sleepy beach town located less than 30 minutes north of Merida, the capital of the state of Yucatan, and about 5 miles east of the port town of Progreso, a major stopping point for Caribbean cruises.

A popular vacation spot for Yucatan peninsula residents, especially Meridians, stucco beach houses ranging from basic to luxurious line the Gulf shore around Chelem for miles. The town has become in recent years a popular spot for expats primarily from the U.S. and Canada, many looking to retire in the relative safety and warmth of Chelem.

There are several expat-owned restaurants in the Chelem and the nearby towns, which have become gathering spots – especially over the weekends- for the Gringo community. There are also plenty of locally-owned eating spots, ranging from back-patio kitchens serving seafood and tacos, to small restaurants with pizza, hamburgers and such.

There are a couple small grocery stores with basic amenities and a small variety of fruits and vegetables (as well as fruit and vegetable stands). For larger scale shopping with plenty of variety for food and goods, there is a large Walmart-owned store in Progreso, as well as the San Francisco of Asis grocery store in the center of Progreso.

Somos una familia de dos países y dos culturas distintas. Nos mudamos a México en el verano de 2014 para acercarnos a nuestra herencia mexicana y ser capaces de compartirla con los viajeros que llegan a las playas de Yucatán.
Hablamos inglés y español y nos encanta convidar a nuestros invitados con las maravillas de nuestro apacible pueblito costeño.

Disfrutamos mucho alojando huéspedes que saben que la diversidad es lo que hace especial cualquier experiencia de viaje. Te invitamos a relajarte junto al mar y a conocer a la cálida gente de Chelem.

We are a family of two cultures and two countries. We moved to Mexico in the summer of 2014 to embrace our Mexican heritage and be able to share it with travelers who arrive on the shores of the Yucatan. We speak English and Spanish and enjoy sharing about the wonders of our sleepy little beach town.

We love being able to host guests who understand that differences really are what makes the experience of travel special. We welcome you to come relax by the sea and get to know the people of Chelem.
