Overview

Progreso Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleep 4, large pool

* One block from the Malecon beach boardwalk

* The Malecon boardwalk, downtown stores, and most restaurants are wheelchair accessible

* Progreso is a very safe community: for added protection, the property is walled and has a security gate

* Guests have full use of the large pool facilities and garden area. The pool has access for a wheelchair (provided)

* The Canadian owners live on the property and are available for any questions you may have

*Suite has a fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, dishes and utensils

* There are ceiling fans and air conditioning in the suite

* High speed wi-fi internet access (bring your own computer) and a DVD player are included.

* Interested in Costa Rica? Ask about our condo in Jaco!

* If you want a place full of tourists, restaurants, and other amenities just like the USA or Canada, Progreso is not the place to be. If you want the experience of authentic Mexican culture among friendly locals, Progreso is the place to be.

* Mostly Spanish is spoken here. (However you can get by easily with a Spanish phrase book) You will be immersed in a community of friendly, helpful, and serene people. The crime rate is very low for most of the Yucatan, as its roots are founded by the legacy of the peaceful Mayan culture.

* Progreso's beaches are safe and tranquil making them great for swimming. A nearby marina provides windsurfing and jet-ski rentals.

* Grocery stores, markets, pharmacies, and many restaurants are within easy walking distance. A car is not necessary, however driving a rented car in Mexico is easy and safe, and can make it much easier to get around. The house is one and a half blocks from the bus route, making it easy to ride around town. An air-conditioned bus to Merida leaves the bus terminal every 15 minutes for less than $3 return.

* a golf course only 20 minutes away, or visit the city of Merida, Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, Uxmal, or the Loltun caves. Enjoy excursions into the mangrove swamps, or take a trip to see the flamingo colonies. You can swim in the cenote at Dzibilchaltun, only 15 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for your wonderful hospitality, we found exactly what we were looking for and more! Peter loved his evenings with the grill, I loved the fish he cooked. Hope we have a chance to come back again.

Relaxing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing 6 night stay in the lower apartment at Oasis del Mar. Our unit was well equipped and comfortable, the pool was great and Joanne was very welcoming and helpful. It would have been very easy to stay on for a longer period of time. We met many Canadians staying in Progreso for months over the winter and it seemed they had formed quite a friendly community. Although warm it cooled down enough at night that we were quite fine just using the many fans provided. It is about 9 blocks to the centre of town with lots of restaurants and shops and there are a few other restaurants and convenience stores that are closer. We usually went out for lunch or dinner and had the other meals in the apartment. We wanted a quiet place to relax and we were not disappointed. Highly recommend. Thanks.

Wonderful spot in small Mexican town!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I found this just what we wanted for our holiday - safe, clean, spacious and all we needed to cook for ourselves most of the 2 weeks.

Joanne and her husband were awesome hosts! They have done an incredible job on their rental units and property and provided excellent advise for tourists new to the area, not to mention greatly appreciated help for a small medical problem. Pool was a godsend!

My only error was not being prepared for the extreme heat this time of year and not realizing the local festivities that went on for about a week.

I would highly recommend this rental to family and friends and for those who prefer quiet and more personal accommodations than typical resorts.

Palm Trees Whispering in the Breeze

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming. Bright and light. Clean and comfortable.

There are not enough superlatives!

This is indeed an oasis: a retreat, a place to restore and rejuvenate.

Five star accommodation, complete with gi-normous balcony overlooking the best pool I have ever swam in

at a private property. And better yet, it was available morning , noon, and night, complete with fairy lighting!

Our hosts anticipated our every need: volunteered to drive us for supplies, introduced us to local haunts, organised a trip to a lesser known archaeological site and

oh happy day, a visit to observe the pink flamingos.

When we left, Joanne insisted on driving us to the bus station at the crack of dawn

to avoid the anxiety of waiting for a taxi to arrive.

A huge thank you, appreciation and gratitude.

Three nights at the Oasis del Mar

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Oasis del Mar on USA Thanksgiving Day. Joanne was very good at communicating with us before our arrival and had made reservaciones (and pre-paid) for our Thanksgiving Dinner at the Faces restaurant a few blocks from the apartment we rented from them.

The owners live on the property and were attentive to our needs without being intrusive. Chuch and Joanne were excellent hosts, hooking us up with a couple we had communcated with and wanted to meet while we were there. They had answers to all of our questions.

The one bedroom apartment was espacios, comfortable and had everything in it that we needed. I would not hesitate to recommend the Oasis del Mar to all.

The Oasis del Mar stay was everything we could have hoped for and more!
