Eso un alojamiento rustico y exótico a 100 metros de la playa y a 3 kms del pueblo ideal como base para pasar un periodo largo y explorar las maravillas naturales y coloniales de la toda la peninsula
Mi Casita esta justo a la orilla de la carretera lo que le dá fácil acceso y caminando son sólo 150 metros a la playa
La zona son en su mayoría casas de descanso de gente que vive en Mérida y algunas habitadas por gente de todas partes del mundo (en su mayoría americanos y canadienses) por lo que entre semana es totalmente apacible y silencioso en fin de semana hay un poco de mayor movimiento
  • Manu’s casita is a great place to unwind, explore the area and chill- exactly what we needed in the middle of our trip. As described to a T, and Manu is super helpful with great communication

  • Manu's Casita Verde is a lovely place and good value for money. It is a little remote if you do not have transport but the location close to the beach made up for that. The mosquitos are savage so if you are susceptible to mozzie bites, bring heaps of insect repellant. A quick word about Estevan, the mototaxi driver recommended by Manu. He is uber reliable, we just sent a Whatsapp message and he appeared. We had a lovely relaxing stay at Casita Verde and it is not an accident that Manu is a Superhost. He is one of the most welcoming hosts we have had on our travels and we really appreciated his prompt communication and attentiveness. Many thanks Manu.

  • Nice place, very relaxing. 5 minutes from the beach. The house is well equipped, functional and very clean. Far from the center on foot but: 10 pesos to go to slam by mototaxi about 4 minutes (walk a little along the street and hop the magic) I recommend !!!

    Céleste2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a place for lovers of tranquility. Casita Azul was perfect for this solo traveller. There is plenty of storage, the kitchen is well planned out, with seating for two at a stylish breakfast bar. There is a built in desk. The property is shady, with plenty of trees and a short walk to the beach. I didnt need a car while i was there, but it is a 10 minute drive or so from town. I stayed for 6 weeks. Manu answered messages promptly, he was completely reliable in terms of fixing any problem. He even came out at 7:30 at night to change the gas tank on the stove. I always felt very safe and secure on the property. Do not miss the Monday Farmers market a short walk up the road, local cheeses, organic produce, baked goods and locally roasted cofee.

  • Very idyllic bungalow with its own outdoor seating. Beach is totally close and we were mostly alone. Great to relax and unwind. Easy to reach by taxi and colectivos. Excursions to nearby and distant surroundings are also possible. Basic equipment is available in the bungalow, otherwise there is also a shared kitchen with some utensils. It's not super clean, but absolutely fine for the price! Manu is a very helpful and nice host.

    Kimberly2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The lodge is perfect for those looking to spend some time outside the madness of the city ... the beach is a couple of blocks away and is very lonely ... Manu helps you locate transportation by mototaxy to go to the center of chelem ( you are about 3.5 km away) a good option for me was to rent a bicycle to move wherever I want and at the time I want (also with Manu) ... there is much to do in the surroundings .... manu will give you some places although I need to list the CARGOON LAGOON a magical half mangrove ..... do not hesitate to bring a lot of sunscreen and mosquito repellent (you can not be without it) not only in My little green house but in every region ... the nearest port is progress and from there there is transportation for too many parts ... do not forget to know dzilbilchantun ... you can go by mototaxy and collective combi ... UBER IS EXAGEREDLY EXPENSIVE ... didi always a lot cheaper .. but nothing better as moving like local people and much cheaper ... I recommend you ner some food that at night there is nothing to go ...

    Oscar2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place, too nice and quiet.

    This large beach front home is perfect for a family vacation. Located on the Gulf of Mexico in between 2 small fishing villages, yet only 35 minutes to Yucatan’s beautiful colonial capital of Merida. This home features satelite TV in English,home theatre system,a gorgeous poolside built in grilling station for gas & wood,a games room with foosball, darts and ping pong,2 car garage,monitored security system,washer/dryer, dishwasher and everything else for a fabulous holiday for the entire family.
    This property offer rental discounts, 20% weekly and 40% monthly discount. Portable play n pack crib and change table available upon request.
    Although centred between 2 small Mexican Fishing villages “Chelem and Chuburna puerto” the community here is a large expat base with many expats living and working here full time. The area is by no means a resort town therefore prices on local goods are still very cheap. The local village people are warm and welcoming and thankful for the work and many programs that the expats bring to this community and the benefits of tourism to the local businesses. The larger city of Progreso is only a 15 drive from here and home to a 6.5 KM pier which is a port of call for 2 major cruise lines that come in several times each week. There you will find endless shopping, restaurants, a beautiful beach, water sport rental, fishing charters, a malecon, grocery stores, a hospital and plenty more. The Yucatán is reported to be the safest state in Mexico.

Much thanks to Ken for his hospitality.

    Chelem, Yucatán, Mexico

    Beautiful new small house in a peaceful fishing village: Chelem, Yucatan. It is located walking distance to downtown, 400 mts to the beach and 350 mts to the lagoon. Enjoy an authentic Mexican experience. This retreat has all that you need for a great stay with all the amenities including pool, wifi and quality queen beds for a COMFORTABLE and relaxing stay. Perfect for a nice vacation or long term stay. Fully equipped kitchen and modern decoration in Living room and Bedroom. AC not included.
    You will have access to the full house and yard with pool.
    This is a typical and traditional Mexican neighborhood if you are looking for a total and different immersion experience into the real Mexican culture. In front of the property there is a small convenience store owned by Alex and Fatima (who also overview this house) to get basic groceries. You can ask Fatima for local transportation and Uber is also available. This is a lovely brand-new house with the amenities of your home such as two nice and comfortable queen beds (not easy to find in Mexico) and a beautiful modern decor. It is also located only 3 blocks from downtown and 4 blocks from the ocean and lagoon. Please be aware and understand though that this is a small rural fishing village in Mexico. That means that you will encounter very friendly people, but part of their tradition is that they love to listen to pretty loud music at various hours of the day... and night sometimes, and they have dogs who might bark at moments. They also have other life priorities than cleaning the street. It is an extremely safe area (the safest in all Latin America!). We are also tropical. You might see or encounter wildlife while in our home or neighborhood, including, but not limited to: raccoon, birds, bees, wasps, lizards, mosquitoes, bugs, spiders, ants and more. These creatures reside in nature and we have no control over them. We prefer to live in peace with them, and we hope you will also enjoy their beauty while respecting them and our great planet which provides us with the pleasure of such beauty. Also we cannot control mother nature and therefore we do not refund if you believe it is too hot, too windy, too much rain... you got the idea. 😊
  • A great little place in a charming and relaxed area. Very close to the beach and a little convienance store right opposite with the owner providing all assistance for the apartment. The little pool is a great touch for the hot weather and much appreciated.

    Condominio frente al mar, ideal para temporadas cortas o largas. Cuenta con dos habitaciones, una con vista al mar y una amplia terraza para disfrutar de la vista. Tambien cuenta con terraza compartida con amplio espacio para apreciar la puesta del sol.
  • We spent 11 wonderful days at Carlos’ property. We absolutely loved the location and had contemplated renting a car, but soon realized that we were only about a 15-20 minute walk to the market in Chelem. When we wanted to go to Progreso (and Merida) we simply went out to the road and hailed a Collectivo which was simple and inexpensive. The property was very quiet and we never experienced any noise day or night. We had everything we needed to prepare meals and did lots of cooking with the magnificent produce purchased at the local markets. I certainly would not hesitate for a second staying there again!

    Jason2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place by the sea, very comfortable and clean, a place I am sure we will return to, my family had an incredible time.

    Chelem Yucalpeten, Yucatán, Mexico

    Come stay at our cute little house in front of the ocean. If your plan is to get away from tourists and just relax in front of the beach, this is the space for you. You can hang out by the pool while you watch the sunset and enjoy your favorite drink.
    Ideal for long stays, days go by and you forget to look at the time while you swing yourself in a hammock or drinking margaritas by the pool. The house is small and quiet, perfect if you want to disconnect from everyday hassle. You have a kitchen with all the basic things to cook, we have a microwave, fridge, corkscrew, coffee maker and some basic things like oil, sugar and salt. We do not have air conditioning as we feel that since you are so close to the ocean there is no need to have one. We've had guests from Rusia, Latvia, Toronto, New Zeland, just to mention a few and none of them has even complained about being hot during the night or unable to sleep due to the heat. All of the windows in the house are from floor to ceiling and you can open them anytime to let the breeze in.
    The town is 2.5km away, its probably a 30minute walk but watch out for the heat an sunburns, we recommend asking for an Uber to drive you there there are also moto taxis (kind of like a tuktuk) those are pretty common an cheap to go to town and back. You can buy groceries in the village market or at Dunosusa, Super Willys or Oxxo, all of them are in the main square or no more than a block away from it. The town is usually quiet and you might find a lot of retired Canadians or Americans who spend their winters in town. If you come during summer time you will find a little carnival in the main square, it is usually packed with people from Mérida who come to their beach houses. There is a bigger town nearby, Progreso, if you take a if you go there you can walk by the sea wall and pick some local food restaurants and bars. In Chelem we have a few spots we like a recommend you can find them in google maps: -Café France for breakfast, opens wed-sun -Restaurant Costa Azul (try the fried fish or ceviche) -Puerto Lindo club de Playa (try octopus tacos or fish filet) -Alpha Kite, if you want to try stand up paddle boards or kite surfing lessons this is the place to go. -Chelem Pier, you can go there and hop on a little boat to explore the mangrove and if you are lucky you might get to see flamingoes or cranes. -Ecological Reserve El Corchito. You might need an uber for this one since its in Progreso but its also a little boat that takes you to the reserve there is a little fresh water spot in the middle of the ocean and the mangrove. You will see local species like raccoons and coatis.
  • We had an amazing stay in an amazing place, the hosts were very helpful and we highly recommend the house.

    Paul-Maxime2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Primarily, we did have a little trouble finding the place. But with the generous hosts keeping in touch with us, we were able to figure it out. It is in a small fishing town next to Progreso (only 10 min Uber drive away). We were walking distance to a gas station for last minute things we needed and a couple of restaurants. Heads up - many of these places do not accept credit cards as oppose to in bigger towns. Grab some pesos first! :) This space was beautiful and the pictures matched exactly! We were right on the beach. The beach was stunning, a bit rocky and full of shells. Fun for beach combing - but be prepared that walking without sandals could be a little tricky. Would have been solved with wearing water shoes :) We just didn't pack accordingly. The view was absolutely stunning. We had a good view of the sunset on our left and the sunrise on our right. If you leave the shades open, you could see the sunrise from your bed! They had everything - dishes, sunscreen, ice, water, and even board games (I whooped my man's butt in Scrabble and Uno hehe) etc. Definitely made it an easy and affordable stay in Chelem. I wouldn't recommend for those with younger children - but I am pretty sure they won't appreciate it there much anyway. For adults it is a little paradise that is gem in Chelem.

    Danielle2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved being on the beach, it was fabulous. The space is sparkling clean and bright. Loved the location and having WiFi made sharing our pictures easy.

    Connie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a gem, it has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. you can spend the whole day looking out to sea listening to the waves. All services like restaurants, convenience stores and others are within 5 minutes. The clean and almost private beach. Excellent attention from the hosts. I would love to return.

    Guillermo2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Best experience at this location! It was beautiful and pleasant. I hope to come back soon!

    Hae-Ra2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I recently spent 12 days at La Casita de Chelem and recommend it highly. The house was exactly as described and exceeded my expectations on all counts. The house is a delightful example of contemporary Mexican design and is the perfect small, private place perched right at the ocean's edge. The secluded white sand beach in front of the house provided great morning swims before the winds picked up mid-day. Also, don't forget to keep an eye out for the spectacular sunsets! I agree with all the positive comments made by other guests. The location is a fair walk to the village of Chelem and if you're carrying purchases, an Uber back may be the way to go. I had a rental car and really enjoyed the freedom it gave me to explore the area on my own terms. I return to Merida every winter and definitely will be coming back to stay at La Casita de Chelem.

    John2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had two wonderful days in Chelem! The house looks exactly as the photos promise! In the house and on the adjacent beach, you are completely on your own, as it is located a bit away from the street and apparently there are no neighbors. The only criticism: the bed is quite small and very hard.

    Marvin And Larissa2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

  • The place is spacious and generally clean, access to the house is easy and is quickly located with the indications provided by Francisco.

The house is as seen in the photos, very comfortable and with everything you need to spend a pleasant stay, whether short or long. We were 17 days and we didn't lack anything. Good AC in the bedroom which is absolutely necessary because if not, the heat is almost unbearable. Near beautiful beaches, quiet; Anyway, we were delighted and would return without a doubt.

    Claudia2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend the place. Very nice and functional. Francisco remained pending at all times. Clean and pleasant and the bed super comfortable. The area is not so touristy, but it is very close to all services and the beach. I would definitely go back.

The colony is a very quiet area, in the surroundings of the house the grounds are wide which makes the houses are scattered many meters of each other, giving a special air of privacy.
  • Very nice place in the village with the population, lots of groceries nearby the host always available for us we spent 2 months and very safe. Recommended

  • Highly recommend: large spaces, quiet street, fast WiFi, very safe, HOT water, and the best host. We girls felt very safe here for a month, never used the security system, large fence but not really needed. Very nice neighbors and Francisco brought us gas and other things regularly. Great value in a nice small fishing village.

  • A wonderful experience, an exceptional site, a superb view. A superb stay. A small problem, you have to take care of washing the bedding every week and doing the maintenance of the property. But, everything else is exceptional.

    Guy2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very pretty. The view is incredible, from the living room, dining room and kitchen you can see the sea through the large windows. The place is immaculate, bright and spacious. Everything is in good condition and the house produces a feeling of warmth. The hosts are very friendly; They attended our arrival despite the fact that for reasons beyond our control, we arrived very late. We spent a few unique days that we appreciate very much. If they go, they will not regret it.

    Lourdes2020-01-08T00:00:00Z

  • It’s great to be in the beach

    Andrés2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • House with excellent services at the edge of the beach in Chelem, private, quiet, dreamlike view. In addition to less than 20 meters we could see dolphins ... simply magical. Alberto, you offer a great place, thank you.

    Zaire2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Alberto and his family were great hosts, they received us in person and gave us great tips about the surrounding areas and near by attractions. The house is literally steps from the beach and the views and sounds from the ocean are incredible. This is a beach house so don't expect luxury but the house has all the amenities you will need for a pleasant stay. The area is very safe but it is a bit secluded from the city and night life. Overall the house was a great value and I'll recommend to family who wants to stay in and enjoy the beach/pool.

    Alberto2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • An unbeatable place, the view, the services, they as hosts ... we had a great time and we would definitely return, a great place to relax and spend a few days on the beach with everything you need

  • big house big yard and big pool. Located on the SOL street down two streets. Easy to get in and out of. Three large bedrooms 4 beds. Fits our family of five perfectly. Would recommend for anyone who needs space for kids and dogs to run. Nice palapa for shade next to the pool. It’s pure fun under the sun. The beach is a very short walk from the house. All major amenities are a short 30 minute drive into Mérida. Great experience. Host Alex is very responsive and gave us local tips for cenotes to visit. We love it in Chaburna. So quiet and relaxing.

    Chelem, Yucatán, Mexico

    We have the perfect beach apartment for you, with sea views and great breezes! 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.
    Your apartment is in the town of Chelem, about 15 minutes west of Progreso, Yucatan. We have a space that feels like a real home (because we live here too, in our own private apartment). 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 with the added conveniences that make a vacation fun (like a pool, wifi, and a kitchen). Walking, you can get to the beach in about 30 seconds and it takes less than 5 minutes to restock needed food necessities (milk, cheese, drinks, snacks) at any of the close, locally owned small stores . If you are looking for a real, honest, simple experience in Mexico, surrounded by good people, you will find it here. You will live among the locals of this small beach village. Chelem is our home and we love sharing it with guests. Contact us with any of your questions- we will help, regardless if this is the perfect place for you to stay or not. (A/C is available but a separate, extra cost. Please ask for more information.)
    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 west 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. Wander the streets, greet residents with a Buenas dias ect, and generally feel safe and welcome. There are times of the year with the town fills with visitors but life still continues on as is but with just more people. 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. 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 Super Aki grocery store in the center of Progreso. Our street is a beach entrance street (entrada). It is sand based and you will see locals and tourists walking northward to go fishing, swimming, or beach combing. Its generally pretty quite and sleepy but you will hear locals advertising their goods for sale and at times street dogs. Its part of life here and shouldn't be noticeable unless highly sensitive to noise. Ask us for more info and we will share with you how we live here.
  • We spent 4 nights in November 2019. The unit is good, looks just like the photos. Big comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen. WiFi was good. Swimming pool very refreshing, I enjoyed it every day. We really like the location, very close to the beach (you can see the ocean from the balcony), also very close to the main plaza of Chelem & many shops, cafes, etc. The hosts Jill & Martin are super nice, they were very attentive during our stay, and helped us get a ride to the airport upon departure.

    John2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place very nice, clean is quiet, I loved everything very well and very friendly

    Yamily2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Fernanda2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • I loved the attention they gave us. I felt welcome. The location is perfect one block from Del Mar. The room was clean and super nice. Anything I asked, they helped me. I recommend this place for couples, families, and singles. Thank you!

    Sue2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place the room was huge and bright the bed was super comfortable and had the best pillows I have encountered.. I have a bad neck and back so this is huge for me. Great pool and fantastic restaurant. Close to everything it was great. Ocean just a short walk. The other guests were fun and nice to talk to. All in all great place with very reasonable cost.

    Colleen2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is the best planned, best executed airbnb apartment we have ever seen. For real. We just felt at home in every way. A true gem in it's own right, it also happens to be located about 75 yards from the beautiful Chelem beach ... The hosts are really friendly and helpful, and also have a great American restaurant on-site (the ribs and mashed potatoes are sublime ...) As for the village, it's totally relaxed and very, very Mexican with all it's quirks and charms.

    Thomas2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Chelem. Jill and Martin were incredibly helpful and all-around awesome people. If we ever return we will definitely stay there again. The restaurant they own was very convenient and we dined there twice. The town is very quiet and quaint but close to many ruins and not far from Merida; we were never bored. Thanks for a great vacation!

    Liz2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Jill and Martin's was great! The internet was critical to my stay and it was up the entire time. The apartment was large and provided really good breezes from the ocean. I didn't need the A/C even though it was 90+ each day. Any issues were immediately addressed. The pool is always clean and comfortable and the restaurant is an ex-pat hangout.

    La casa frente al mar, con toques modernos y playeros, cómoda y excelente para la convivencia con la familia o los amigos gracias a sus espacios. Frente al mar la vida es más sabrosa, disfruta del bello atardecer bajo la palapa y de las brisas del océano.
    El ambiente rústico que la arquitectura de la casa proporciona le da un toque agradable y playero, además de la facilidad de disfrutar de la brisa del mar al abrir las puertas que dan a la playa bajo una palapa, estando solo a unos 12 pasos para tocar el mar.
    Es una zona tranquila que se puede disfrutar con la compañía de tus seres queridos.
  • We stayed at Miguel’s beach house in Chelem for the month of February and loved it! The house was very clean - charming with a lot of personality. There is a large patio overlooking beach and the Gulf. Wonderful swimming. There is a large front yard where the pool is located. While we did have a car Miguel kindly provided us with 2 bikes. This is a quiet laid back community and very safe. Miguel was attentive and responded to our questions. He emailed me every week to check in. I would stay here again.

    Susan2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Bogdan2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • A little piece of paradise. The house is spacious with two bedrooms each bedroom has its own bathroom the house has an additional bathroom only one bedroom has a television set everything at the house was functional, the swimming pool was a plus we enjoy the pool and the entire house what I really like was the view having the ocean at just a few steps it’s just mesmerizing for the first couple of days the beach was kind of murky due to the seaweed then it became crystal clear. Most of the time we had the beach all to ourselves that we thought we were lost in paradise. I would definitely go back.

    Lucio2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very spacious, clean and pleasant, spacious rooms, includes all kitchen utensils, including pans, glasses etc, the 3 bathrooms are very clean and tidy, the view of the sea is spectacular and simple, the pool is very spacious and is fenced, highly recommended

    Andrea2019-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Miquel's house was exactly as advertised. The beach was quite nice - I prefer it to the beaches closer to Progresso where I have stayed before. We especially enjoyed the palapa and were surprised by how much we enjoyed the pool given that the ocean was on the other side. There is lots of space in the house and it was nice and clean.

    Beautiful large house in quiet fishing village Chelem in Yucatan. Its located STEPS from the beach, and downtown is walking distance.This retreat is all you need for a great stay, pool, wifi and AC ( additional cost) and quality beds for a comfortable stay. Casa grande en quiet Chelem. The house is furnished with comfortable beds (queen sizes which are not common in Mexico) Pool is big and you have laundry facilities.
    You have access to the full house that includes pool, front porch area, free parking, living room, dining room, equipped kitchen, bedroom with two very comfortable beds with clima, two washrooms, and washing machine. This neighbourhood is really quiet and very safe. Tiene acceso a toda la casa, incluyendo alberca, porche delantero, estacionamiento, cocina completa, recamara con dos camas muy cómodas y clima, sala, comedor, dos baños y lavadora. Esta colonia es muy tranquila y muy segura.
    Chelem is a typical and traditional Mexican neighborhood if you are looking for a total and different immersion experience into the real Mexican culture. The neighbourhood is very quiet. There is local transportation and Uber is also available. This is a charming and big house with the amenities of your home such as two nice and comfortable queen beds (not easy to find in Mexico) and a beautiful modern decor. It is also located only a 1 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to downtown. Please be aware and understand though that this is a small rural fishing village in Mexico. That means that you will encounter very friendly people, but you may also hear some dogs who might bark at moments. It is an extremely safe area (the safest in all Latin America!). We are also tropical. You might see or encounter wildlife while in our home or neighborhood, including, but not limited to: raccoon, birds, bees, wasps, lizards, mosquitoes, bugs, spiders, ants and more. These creatures reside in nature and we have no control over them. We prefer to live in peace with them, and we hope you will also enjoy their beauty while respecting them and our great planet which provides us with the pleasure of such beauty. Also we cannot control mother nature and therefore we do not refund if you believe it is too hot, too windy, too much rain... you got the idea. 😊
  • House a bit old but very comfortable, lots of storage, excellent beds, large very bright bathroom (skylight) and large terrace. Very quiet place in this season, the neighbors are owners of Mérida who are there especially in summer or during the holidays. Beach two minutes walk. Pat and Will always answered our questions quickly and Fatima and her partner Alex were there when needed. We stayed for two months and hope to return.

  • A beautiful setting right on the ocean in Chelum! We especially appreciated the personal contact from the point of booking until we left. Arturo treats you more like a friend than a guest, to the point where he located us on the day we left at a local restaurant to say goodbye and thank us for staying at your resort. He also gave us very useful information on the local and surrounding communities.

    Myron2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • The accommodation is spacious and clean. The location is very good because the town is small but has what it takes to stock up. If you need more things is near Progreso where you can find practically everything. The description of the place is reliable. Access to the beach is the best.

  • You can't go wrong at Vida Chelem. Everything is spotless. You can eat out or dine in. Everything you need for a short stay or extended stay is available. Kim and Stan are the best!

  • This is a lovely spot on the beach. It is very well maintained and safe. The ocean out front is great for swimming. I loved Chelem and met many wonderful people. Kimberly and her crew take great care of the place and those who stay there. I highly recommend Vida Chelem.

  • Chelem life is a beautiful and peaceful place. The hospitality and attention of Arturo were great, the house very comfortable, clean and with everything you need to spend some time, the beach is very quiet and pleasant. We had a great time.

    Pablo Y Montse2019-08-05T00:00:00Z

  • If you are looking for a quiet corner of the world to rest and reset this the place for you. It is a safe, pristine place to relax and enjoy the ocean. Kimberly graciously checked us in even thought it was really late and got us situated for our stay. The place is simply but very adequately appointed and we were thankful for no TV but reliable WiFi! The beach area is private but easily accessible. We highly recommend to people looking for quiet,clean safe place to stay!

  • Our stay at Marga's Casita was wonderful. Marga is the most attentive host we met during our travels so far. So one evening, she invited us to a typical Spanish Omelette dinner, prepared by her and her friend Rita themselves. In addition there were homemade Margaritas ... thank you again for that, we enjoyed it very much, super delicious ! And also thank you for everything else you have done here to make our stay of four weeks as nice as possible. Marga was always eager to help and looked after us very well. The house was lovingly decorated in colorful Mexican colors. It was equipped with everything we needed and we missed nothing, I'm sure Marga would have done anything to help if so. The garden and pool are as lovely as Marga and her guest house. The pool was cleaned once a week by Marga herself and was always clean. We enjoyed many days chilling and relaxing in the sun by the refreshing pool. The pictures on AirBnB unfortunately don't reflect the real coziness of the garden and also the house, in reality it is even nicer yet. All in all, our stay at the Casa Torcida was a wonderful experience. All we can do is to wish Marga all the best and to thank her once again for the great time.

    Andreas & Julia2018-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt a great experience, they are excellent people and very friendly. The beach is very close and clean

  • Eric and Marylin’s casita is the real deal, easy check in and warm welcome. The house is very well appointed, clean and quiet. The bedroom stylish and the bed was very comfortable, great bathroom with a big shower and plenty of hot water. The A/C worked well but we did not have to use much as the house stayed quite cool with just the ceiling fans on and windows opened. Just outside the entrance is a beautiful private patio/garden area that is shaded in the afternoon, a nice place to have a drink, relax with a good book or take a nap. Great location, easy walking distance to the town of Chelem and the beach. The small stores in Chelem had everything we needed for our stay, lots of great restaurants that serve delicious local and western dishes. Everybody we meet/dealt with, greeted us with a smile, polite and helpful. The house is located 2 minutes away from the beach. During our stay we basically had the beach to ourselves, the water was nice to swim in and very safe. If walking is not your thing and do not have a car, getting around using local transportation is very easy and inexpensive. Tuktuks ( local taxis) are everywhere, Colectivo buses, taxis and Uber is available to get to Progreso and Merida. Cost range from 10 to 300 pesos depending on distance and type of transportation. All in all we had a fantastic time in Chelem and cannot say enough about Eric and Marylin’s accommodation, we felt very much at home and would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this rental.

    Denis2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Spotless casita hosted by two of the nicest folks you'll meet anywhere. Hot, pressurized water and cold a/c. Satelite TV. 1 minute walk to beach and 1 minute drive to friendly town of Chelem. Will be my go to spot for future trips. Thanks Eric and Marylin:-)

    John2019-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Eric & Marilyn's Casita is definitely amazing. From check-in to check-out they offered their hospitality. Arriving in a new place is sometimes overwhelming. Eric met us in town so that we could follow him home . . .which put us very much at ease. Once you get accustomed to the area, it's quite easy to get around. Their place is more than fantastic. We had a private court-yard where we would have our morning coffees. Often there were humming birds flitting about the beautiful gardens. The shared pool was clean and warm. I say shared pool, but it felt as if it were our private pool. After a day of sight-seeing we would relax in the pool. Eric and Marilyn would sometimes sit at the bar and we would talk about our day. They had great suggestions for restaurants, and local activities. We were just a few steps from the beach, and a short stroll from the town centre. Panda & Sugar (the doggies) were excited to see us everyday. This made us feel even more at home. If you're not dog people, you wouldn't even know that they were there. They are very well trained. I would recommend Eric & Marilyn's Casita in a heartbeat. Hopefully we can get back to see them soon

    Steve2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • What to expect? The finest hosts ever, who leave you alone when you need to be, but are always at your service if you need anything...a casita that is SPOTLESSLY clean. Security always. Your own swimming pool, again, spotless. A quiet location. Public transportation just a short walk away. Great beaches just yards away. Excellent local advice. Their two dogs are loving and protective. We miss the place already! But we bought a house there, so they know we'll be back!

    Seneca2018-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very nice home away from home. We could have moved right in. Private walled patio with table and chairs and tropical landscaping with nice breeze with sun and shade. Pool and bar area were beautiful and at night you felt like you were at a private resort with beautiful lighting. Several nice places to eat close by. The markets are friendly and very easy to communicate even with very little Spanish we could communicate. Security lighting outside the house so it was easy to find after dark. Beach and area safe no matter what time of day .We felt comfortable and walked area during day and night. Snorkeled and swam at beach...less than 2 blocks away. You can walk out in the water 100 steps before it's over 5 feet deep. Layed back and peaceful.

    Rita And Michael2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous clean casita with nice patio and garden for sitting out. Great location very close to the beach. We especially enjoyed sunrise and sundown on the beach. Met some fabulous people within our month stay. Eric was a great host and made us very welcome when we arrived. He had left us beer and wine and took us to a local restaurant on the day of our arrival and we met some fabulous people. Gave its lots off useful information on the area and took us into the nearest large town so that we could get some groceries. I am sure we will return to Chelem at some point in the future.

    Gayle2018-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Finished a fabulous 2 month stay (March 12/18) with Eric and Marilyn near Chelem, and can't say enough about their wonderful hospitality! A chilled bottle of wine awaited us on arrival. (Thank you!) They drove us to some great eating and music spots, helped us get our bearings, and introduced us to some really nice ex pats and local people that we connected with. I even ran into an old rugby friend from a charity fashion show that Marilyn kindly arranged for me to attend. They're very thoughtful and considerate, for example, they always ensured we knew when the gardener was coming, replenished water etc. promptly. I'd say they were 'super responsive hosts.' They're also very involved with the local community, and had lots of suggestions and resources on hand for how to get around (1.5 km walk one way to central Chelem) but there's also Tuk-tuk, taxi, collectivo, and bus (Progreso/Merida) to explore the area, so we didn't mind being without a car for most of the time. (We do like walking though, fyi.) Most transportation is available during the day/early evening, but not necessarily late at night. And just see Marilyn or Eric for recommendations if you do want to rent a car. Note: there are a couple of small, fresh veggie vendors in walking distance in Chelem, fish market (on occasion) and also smaller grocery stores where we picked up most staples we wanted. And when pickles weren't available in Chelem (surprising they're not a staple for most people! ;) Eric knew where we could find them. The unit had a nice, full sized fridge, oven/stove, microwave, blender - really all the essentials we needed. And if you don't have all you need, just ask. Everything was clean and nicely organized. The kitchen/living area was bright, spacious, and tastefully decorated, and though the bed was a little cozy for the two of us, there was ample room for storage. We also appreciated Canadian cable to keep up with all the Olympic happenings. We enjoyed playing with their dogs, hanging out in the lovely gardens or pool on hot afternoons, enjoying an afternoon cocktail on our own deck or with our fabulous hosts. Can't say enough great things about Marilyn and Eric's wonderful hospitality!

    Wendy2018-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Eric and Marilyn's casita for the past two months gave us a wonderful introduction to the Yucatan and the "real" Mexico. Chelem is a small fishing village on the Gulf of Mexico with a predominantly Mayan population. There is a lot to do and see, a vibrant expat community, as well as great live music at the various hangouts in and around Chelem and Progresso. Merida is a beautiful city worth exploring as well. Eric and Marilyn were great hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed, provided insight and suggestions as to what to see and do in the area, and introduced us to their many friends. Note they have three very friendly dogs which did not bother us as we are dog lovers. The casita is located on the same enclosed property as Eric and Marilyn's residence. It has it's own entrance and patio area, with access to the shared pool and lounge area. The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained. The casita itself is clean and bright with a double bed in the bedroom, an ensuite bathroom with shower, a walk in closet, a full kitchen, dining and living area. The main living area is air conditioned and there are fans as well in the main living area and the bedroom. The TV provided Canadian Satellite services which was great to access news and programming from home. To truly enjoy the area, a car is advisable although there are local transportation options that are quite inexpensive - you can walk into Chelem proper (25 min) and grab a combi (minibus) for trips into Progresso and Merida, or call local taxis/uber. In summary we fell in love with the area and found it easy to meet people and make friends. Thank you Eric and Marilyn for a wonderful stay and we look forward to seeing you next year!

    Chelem, Yuc., Mexico

    Sparkling clean, breathtaking views of the Gulf and sunsets, 5 amazing patio decks, outdoor living all day long. Eating and lounging area out of the sun near the pool. You have the entire house for your exclusive use. We know this is the perfect oasis to call home because when we stayed here as AirBnB guests we fell in love with everything about it. We now own it and are so happy to continue to share the magic.
    A gulf side patio that steps down directly on to the sandy beach and it is just meters from water’s edge. A roof top terrace that offers panoramic views of the gulf and the setting sun. A beautiful large pool on the court side for you to relax in or maybe do some laps. Drink directly from the tap with our Pressurized Reverse Osmosis Water System with water softener The house is fully furnished and equipped with all the comforts for a long stay.
    It is a very quiet area located between two small villages. However there is shopping and some really good restaurants with great options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Only 15 minutes to the Town of Progreso where cruise ships arrive weekly and 35 minutes from the airport and the colonial city of Merida, which was recently named "Best small city in the world to travel". For your comfort and safety, it is valuable to know that the Yucatan area has been named the safest state in Mexico.
  • Congratulations! You have discovered the cutest beach-front home in Chelem! Our 5 night stay was near perfect. In the winter months the beach is nearly deserted so plenty of time just sitting on the front patio, drinks in hand, watching the gulf do its thing. With a solid wall on the east side of the patio (the windward side) and being further out into the sand than the neighbors to the west, your patio views are essentially uninterrupted by other homes. There is a sandbar about 75 yards out that goes on for about another 75 yards so you can stand in the water quite far out. The home is decorated super-cute with all the comforts of home. Skylights in all rooms (except the bedrooms) and the high ceiling living room bring in plenty of light. Having the pool in the private back (as opposed to beach-side) allows for a romantic time. Plus the covered back patio is great when you want to get out of the ever present wind. Laying on the master bed with the wood door open and just looking out to the pool, patio and palm trees reassures you that you are in paradise. Plus the upstairs deck and palapa provide views forever. Victoria was a very helpful host. Grab this charmer - now!

  • An excellent place, thanks to Victor for all the attention, always attentive to our needs, just like Don Sergio. The location is incomparable, we were very happy with the place.

    Irasema2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very nice stay at Vida Chelem. The place is modern and the kitchen is extremely functional though small. Victor, the young man who takes care of the grounds, works very hard to keep the landscape beautiful and neat and is constantly performing cleaning and maintenance on all of the units. The beach in front is kept free of seagrass by Victor and is great for swimming. Bring some water shoes to help get past the first 10 feet which is a little rocky, but from there on out it’s sandy and since it stays shallow, you can walk pretty far. We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights here and wish we could’ve stayed for a lot longer. It is a very short walk to convenience stores, restaurants and public transportation (combi) to Progreso. We totally recommend eating at the taco/bbq across from the park in town called Taqueria La Tejana while you are in Chelem. We had a great time and look forward to our next visit.

    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.

    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.
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jill and Martin’s. The apartment and the whole building were clean and comfortable. The pool was a great amenity and a welcome relief from the heat. The apartment had everything we needed for the week. Most important, Jill and Martin themselves are very very friendly and warm. They gave us many recommendations for activities, eating and insight into the town of Chelem and the local culture. We look forward to visiting again.

  • Jill and Martin made my vacation extraordinary Your space is better than we expected, the kitchen fully equipped with utensils and spices to cook whatever you want, towels in the pool and the apartment, all clean and in order But the most important thing was the magnificent treatment we received from Jill and Mr. Martin, always cheerful and with the best disposition We are already planning our next visit to this same space They always made us feel at home Thank you very much Jill and Martin

    Gerardo2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location and hosts! We loved our stay and can’t wait to return!

    Tiffany2019-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A friend and I stayed for about a week at this close-to-the-beach apartment. Everything was exactly as advertised, but the hosts made the stay the best. Jill and Martin are genuinely caring and also really in-the-know culturally and about the locale. They can help guide anyone toward an authentic experience of Mexico with their tips. Jill recommended the perfect two historic places for us to visit, and she also checked in frequently to make sure we were happy at their place. It was quiet, very comfortable, and pleasant. I could hear the ocean waves even at night (there were somewhat stronger than usual winds while we stayed). I would not hesitate to stay here again as my first choice in Chelem!

    Sue2018-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent attention from Jill and Martin, they were very friendly at all times and the place exceeded what I expected. 100% recommended, thanks for everything.

    Ivan2018-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • I Loved staying with Jill and Martin! I had the apartment on the second floor, which was huge just for me. It can easily fit four people. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a couch, a table to eat at, the bed- and bathroom and a nice balcony. I used the pool every day and always had it to myself. Chelem is a quiet place, so if you’re looking for a few relaxed days, it’s perfect. The beach is literally down the road and the main square with a few shops and taco places is also just two minutes away. It’s also really easy to go to Progreso or Merida, so you don’t have to worry about it being too quiet. There is fast WiFi all through the building, even at the pool. The two have a restaurant right next to the apartment. I was there almost every night and loved that I didn’t have to go anywhere far away. But there are also a few other options in Chelem which I’ll have to try next time. They took great care of me and helped with all my questions. I’ll definitely come back :) thanks for having me!

  • This was a fantastic place to stay. It was all as described in the posting and the rooms were a little bigger even than they looked in the pictures. We had three little kids and a cat and it was great. The kids enjoyed the pool and we were one block from the beach. The restaurant downstairs was great. Jill and Martin were excellent hosts. They communicated well and were always responsive and attentive to whatever need we had. Chelem was also a nice place to stay for a little while. It's laid-back and relaxed and it's easy to get to Progreso and back. We'd definitely recommend this place for couples or families with small kids.

  • Coco met us upon our arrival, which is a good gesture on his part. The house is very private, as it has tall fences and parking space. Everything is new and the kitchen is well equipped with good quality items. On the terrace there is a beautiful and very comfortable hammock, the sofa bed is also quite comfortable. It is 2 minutes walk from the beach. It also has a Smart TV with Netflix ideal when you go as a family. He recommended Coco and his house to anyone who visits the beautiful beaches of Yucatan.

    Rosalinda2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • I definitely would recommend Coco’s house off the beach. She was fast to respond to any issues. House was clean and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

    Steve2020-02-01T00:00:00Z

  • The place is super easy to find, it is 3 blocks from the beach. It is super spacious and has all the items for the beach and / or kitchen that you may need. The only detail would be that for a very hot season if a venti is needed in the kitchen, but even without the venti the house is very cool. A widely recommended place!

  • All very beautiful, clean and in order. Large rooms with air conditioners. Each room has its own bathroom. Wide and deep pool. It has a grill to cook meat or burgers on charcoal.

    Jose2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing, everything is more beautiful than in the photos and is super spacious and comfortable but there were two details one is not the fault of the hostess but if it is very annoying, there is a construction aside and all the time the masons have super loud music and with a lot of scandal The second is that all the water in the house including that of the pool is salty. You bathe and brush your teeth with that water. Outside of that everything is absolutely amazing

    Patricia2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very attentive, Good communication The very comfortable stay The place quite nice and quiet I would go back without hesitation

  • Even prettier than I imagined her. A very cool and perfect house to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax. The beach is less than 4 corners of the house, and the pool is perfect for a hot afternoon. The bathrooms in perfect condition and the kitchen is spacious, with all the necessary appliances. The beds are very comfortable and have plenty of space to hang hammocks, both along the porch and inside the house and in the small patio area, where you can take care of those who are enjoying the pool. A very good experience!

    Alejandra2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Martha's accommodation and service are excellent. From our first contact until the delivery of the house everything was fast and with a lot of kindness. The house is extremely clean, is very comfortable and comes prepared with all the utensils you need in the kitchen. The pool area is unbeatable and has a hammock area that is like being in paradise. It has a complete bathroom to the interior extremely clean and tidy and an outdoor bathroom very useful to enjoy without any problem of the pool. The room is comfortable for two people and apart it has space to hang two hammocks. In the room there are also hammocks for three more hammocks. The sheets, pillows, covers and towels extremely clean. Definitely highly recommended to spend a good time at the Yucatan beach, I would stay here again. The beach is approx. 100 meters from the house, it is a very short and very pleasant walk.

  • Always on the lookout, very friendly! excellent service!

    Dibany2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this place! The location is better than we could have imagined, right in between bigger downtown Progresso and the central park and market of the small town of Chelem (about 10 min drive to each), even closer to food carts, restaurants and convenience stores, and less than a block from the beach (you can see it from the balcony and both bedrooms)! Cesar was also a very helpful and attentive host, giving us a thorough tour when we arrived and checking in via text a few hours later to make sure everything was going smoothly. This house is newly built and Cesar said he is still working on a few finishing touches, so I'm sure the next time we stay there it will be even better than the first!
