My wife were looking for a very quiet and relaxing winter vacation. This house delivers just that! A lovely three-bedroom three-bath home (with actually another room and a bathroom under construction!) with its own fresh water pool directly on the beach. The master bedroom with a king-size bed has a balcony that overlooks both the pool and the ocean.
The area is virtually all single homes (most quite nice) and in March (and apparently most of the winter) very few are occupied by their Mexican owners. They seem to think that 36 celsius (80+ Fahrenheit) is a bit cool for them. So the area is very quiet and not at all touristy.
Groceries are easily obtained in Progreso(about a 23 km drive) and there are lots of inexpensive restaurants to choose from.
A car is a definite necessity and some knowledge of Spanish would be very helpful as almost no one other than us "Gringo's" speaks English. The property caretaker and his family don't but the owner (Aida) does and is only a phone call away. She was not only very helpful but very honest returning cash to me when I inadvetently overpaid her for rent.
If you are looking for quiet beach walks off the beaten path and away from tourists, give this one some serious thought!
We have just spent 15 days at this property and i would highly recommend it.
The property is immaculate and is totally furnished /equipped
with lots of extras. The caretaker and his family are nonintrusive and are respectful of your privacy but are there to help when ever they are needed.The family is very quiet.The dogs are great security although it is a very safe area.The beach is the best around.
After 3 months of Spanish language school, my wife and I wanted to relax for a week before heading north for the holidays. We could not have picked a better spot. The house was immaculately clean and with all amenities maintained to a very high standard. The owner provided us with a wireless internet card which worked without a hitch. The caretaker/handiman who lived on site not only looked after the pool and property, but also privided some security and was always available in the event of a problem.
The area was quiet and peacefull, but with many interesting places to visit not too far away. We had fun trying the restaurants and enjoying the local festivities in Progeso (an easy drive from the house)
Even when we had a couple of days of bad weather(High winds and rain which kept us awake) we were able to visit places of interest away from the beach.
