Our family stayed here for just under a week on a vacation recently. While we stayed in a few lovely places on the Yucatan, the proximity to the ocean, the quiet beach, amenities that the house offers as well as flamingo viewing within walking distance made this place our favorite overall.I suggest stopping in Chicxulub for ice cream, panuchos and salbutos,and fresh fruits and vegetables. There is a stall owner in the small vegetable market with a guide to Maya fruits and vegetables that is great for those like myself who are unsure of what to do with new produce but want to try them. The kitchen is very well set up for cooking, beautiful dishes, easy to work in, with everything you might need. Jose, the caretaker allows the privacy you want while still taking care of the place and grounds. I enjoyed a trip to Telchac with him to buy fish one morning, later he made a delicious meal of ceviche for us, better than what we'd had at a restaurant on the Caribbean coast earlier in the week. Part of what attracted me to this home was the style. I'm so glad I chose it, we all loved looking at the open framing and palm roof in all its simplicity and beauty. I would be remiss if I did not include the helpful interactions with Carlos prior to our leaving for Mexico. He answered all my questions in a timely manner, sent along suggestions for what to see and do in the area and made us feel very welcome in his home. Thanks for the stay. We hope to return someday.
