This is a remote Villa right on the water! The pictures are realistic and you are literally 15 steps off the back deck into the Gulf of Mexico! You can walk for hours along the beach and never reach an 'end'.
The house is fully equipped with all that you need (fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, gas stove top and oven, water dispenser, silverware (it's in the blue hutch in the dining room!), plates, glasses, pots/pans, and a BBQ! It has 3 bathrooms and showers, two bedrooms are upstairs - the master has a queen bed, and the 2nd room has two single beds. Each room is equipped with a ceiling fan and an air conditioner (although I didn't use the aircon because the open windows and ceiling fan were enough for me).
The property itself is full of palm trees, white sand, and is very clean and very well maintained. The pool is clean and the water inviting!! After a dip in the ocean, you can take a rinse using the outdoor shower.
Maria, the owner, is absolutely fantastic to deal with. She is fluent in English, responsive to your questions, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure you have the best experience in her home!
Uaymitun is where the house is located. The first time driving there might feel like you'll never find it again, but it's very very easy to find and return to (no matter how many cervezas you've had!). The house is a 20 minute drive to Progreso, where you can go and get supplies and have some great meals (go to Barlovento!). North of the property, you can drive to Xcambo and visit Mayan ruins and along the way, you can visit a Flamingo habitat and the salt flats!
YOU NEED A VEHICLE! That is a must. If you forgo the vehicle, you can take the Collectivo (local bus - it's a white van) into Chicxulub, then another Collectivo into Progreso. Just stand at the end of the driveway and wave down a white van...it will cost you 8 Pesos to Chicxulub and another 8 to Progreso.
I spent two weeks here and on the fourth day, I had to check to ensure I still had a pulse...
Thank you, Maria, for your attentiveness, friendliness, and for sharing your home!
