Overview

San Benito House Rental Photos and Description

Just recently made available for the 2014-2015 winter season

Welcome to 'KAH' (Mayan for 'Life') and a little piece of paradise that we would love to share with you. A beautiful, architect designed, 7 year old, well maintained beachhouse of modern styling with Mexican influences. Built to North American standards and directly on beautiful San Benito Beach.

KAH is an open concept design with a huge cathedral ceiling, interior balcony, lots of windows and a wall of sliding doors which make it very bright and airy. Every room has taken advantage of the awesome ocean breezes ....the best of indoor/outdoor living!! There are interior living and dining areas with sliding patio doors that open the whole width of the house and also covered outdoor living and dining areas. The views of The Gulf of Mexico, from the second floor terrace are amazing. The house is set back far enough from the beach for complete privacy.

There are three large bedrooms each with their own private bath on the upper floor. The master has a luxury king size bed with a private terrace with great ocean views. Sleep to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore and wake to the sight of the spectacular Gulf of Mexico! The other larger upstairs bedroom also has a luxury king size bed with a small balcony facing the beach road. In the middle bedroom is a luxury queen bed and ensuite bath. There is also a bedroom on the main floor with a double bed and bath next to it. All bathrooms have large walk in showers only. Two sets of luxury linens and towels are supplied with each bedroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a six burner propane range, a large side by side fridge/freezer and a microwave...all stainless steel. Stone counter tops including a kitchen sink carved out of one piece of stone....a work of art. Bottled water is pumped directly to the ice and water dispenser in the fridge, so drinking water and ice is not a concern. All dinnerware (for 8), pots and pans, blender, uttensils etc. are included. There is also a propane BBQ on the terrance

KAH has an interior dining area that seats 8 and an exterior dining area that seats 4. The interior living room has a large sectional couch in front of a 42' plasma TV with Canadian satellite TV (all North American channels are available, HBO, sports), DVD player and stereo system. The exterior seating area is perfect for reading out of the sun.

The large beachside patio has six lounge chairs, a private pool with concrete beach (kids love this), a waterfall into the pool and large palms that line the patio.

There are miles and miles of beach to walk, with tonnes of shells. This is a residential neighbourhood, only beach homes and small condo complexes are in the area. No large resorts.

Carlos, our English speaking caretaker is available for keys and all questions or concerns.

About Michelle Heskamp

We are a self employed Canadian couple, one dog, no kids. We build and sell houses in Ontario in the summer but were looking to leave the cold Canadian winters. We found this area, the Flamingo Riviera, eight years ago. We have now spent 7 full winters here and absolutely love it.

Michelle Heskamp purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Heskamp chose San Benito

We had been to Mexico many times and always loved the people and the history....and the weather. In Merida (40 minutes away) we found great culture and arts, cool architecture, excellent restaurants (from American chain restaurants for when you just need fries to phenomenal local cuisine restaurants) and a wide range of shopping (Costco, Sears, huge American style malls to genuine local markets).

In Progreso (15 minutes from the house) there are many beachside restaurants and shops on the beautiful Malecon, (a wide beachside walkway). Grocery stores, pharmacies, hospitals etc....everything you need is here. When the cruise ships come in to the pier, the Malecon is lined with vendors selling everything from souvenirs to food to clothing and jewelery...a very festive atmosphere. If you want a peaceful beachside visit you can go in on the days the cruise ships are not there and enjoy a quieter experience.

Also, in the vacinity are spectacular Mayan ruins, the two most impressive are Chichen Itza and Uxmal, historic operating Haciendas, cenotes (underground fresh water lakes), mangroves, wildlife, specifically Flamingo habitats and a Jack Nicklaus golf course.....lots to see and do.

Since being here we have come to love the Yucatecan people, the laid back lifestyle of beach life and the climate most of all....even more then we expected.

Getting here is easy too. Merida has an international airport or Cancun (with it's usually cheaper charter flights) is 4 hours away. The toll highway between Cancun and Merida is very safe and easy. There is also a bus and hopper airline between Cancun and Merida.

What makes this house unique

Our house is about 15 minutes from Progreso, about 10 minutes from Telchac Puerto and about 40 minutes to Merida. The area is almost all residential, no large resorts, only a couple smaller condo type resorts so there is not a lot of tourist traffic. There is no village of San Benito Beach, you have to drive to Telchac or Progreso for supplies, so a car would be required. The beach is beautiful with miles of walking and shelling and the swimming is safe too. There is a sand bar about 500' out. My favorite thing to do is to go out early in the morning with my dog and coffee and see what shells the tide has brought in. It is a very safe and secure area....we sleep with our second floor doors open all night, listening to the sound of the waves!! There is an almost constant breeze coming off the Gulf of Mexico. So although it can get hot is it always pleasant with the breeze. The house itself is built to North American standards with a pressurized water system and hot water at all taps, a full septic system, so all toilet paper can go in the toilets!! There is air conditioning in the master bedroom only and ceiling fans throughout the house.

With the constant breezes and ceiling fans, air conditioning is not really necessary.

We have a great English speaking caretaker who is available for any questions or concerns and will meet you with the keys. Wifi is included. Tours, beach massages, catering or airport pick ups etc can also be arranged. Additional pictures on request.

Great Home, just as described!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Progresso area and first time renting a home in Mexico. Everything was just as we expected from the description of the home the area and the people that we read on the website. House was in excellent condition and very well maintained. Carlos the caretaker was a joy to deal with as was the owner Michelle. We spent a week here and really enjoyed a few days just relaxing on the patio, beach, and next to the pool. We also spent many days exploring the area the local ruins and the cenotes. My entire family agrees that we will definitely come back again.

Great Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a great beachfront house with all the amenities this is it. My family stayed here and it has it all including the best owners Michele and Mike. The house is built to the highest Canadian standards. Everything you need for a great vacation in a newer home. Updated kitchen ,pantry clothes washer, A/C in Master,hot water in kitchen (almost unheard of in most houses) wifi, great flat screen TV with the best US channels. Quiet, safe area and very clean.The caretaker speaks english and is very helpful about anything you might need.He also does tours if needed. Great location for a homebase to tour pyramids,Merida with great Mayan museums and excellent restaurants. Highly recommended!

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We visited San Benito for three weeks in December and absolutely loved this house that had everything we were hoping for. Beautiful place, close enough to Progreso, amazing pool and even better beach.

We spent days suntanning and swimming and nights walking to nearby hotels and enjoying fresh and organic food in their restaurants.

The house is tastefully designed, beds and sheets were super comfy, kitchen is fully equipped, bathrooms are beautiful and there is absolutely nothing more that one would need. Also, there is big and gorgeous terrace with patio furniture and the pool, which is so far my favorite, it has very little chemicals, since the water is salty and it's deep enough to jump in. I would highly recommend this place to everyone, I can't say enough praises to the owners and manager.

Regarding a comment about fans in living room, one wouldn't need them, this place is ventilated enough for the fresh air and breeze to go through the house and keep it cool all the time. It's such a beautiful, fresh and breezy home, because it's right on the beach.

If you want a super relaxing, quite, romantic holiday or family holiday, this is a place to be.

Private Beach Propery

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this home for five weeks from mid November till Dec.5 and were very happy with the results. We brought our kids and grandkids with us for two weeks and they also enjoyed the home very much. It is a quite location with four bedrooms which was perfect for all nine of us and the pool was used from morning till night. The ocean is only about 50 yards from the house and it is very sandy and shallow and safe for kids. There was someone made available for us to call at any time to answer any questions regarding the house or general information. If you like a quiet and private location this is an ideal spot.

Experience the real Mexico

  • 5 of 5

The description and the photos are 100% accurate - but the listing failed to mention that there are ceiling fans in every room - two in the master bedroom. The living room could use a fan because it is somewhat offset from the natural air flow, and the extra heat generated by the TV, DVD, etc. is noticeable. This is not a suburban American or Canadian house - it is a Mexican house and as such there are things about it that a prospective renter should realize are part of the Yucatan experience.

We were chatting with our traveling companions and we agreed that we all had friends who would love every minute here - and we have friends who would not be comfortable at all.

Great Fun

  • 5 of 5

The photos and description are just about 100% accurate. There are a lot of ceiling fans, which I think are not mentioned in the description - but the living room does not have a fan and could really use one. The local manager - Susan - is very helpful and personable. You might take a look at her website (kab-yucatan.com) for more info on additional services available. I would recommend this rental to my friends/relatives WHO LIKE THIS SORT OF VACATION...I also have friends and relatives who would be complaining the whole time about everything that a Yucatan beach vacation involves.
