Chelem Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Would you like to roll out of bed and have your toes massaged by the beautiful white sands of Playa de Chelem; or snorkel over a magnificent coral reef just 30 yards off the beach? This exquisite beachfront home is directly on the Emerald Coast.

Our private Mexican resort home has an in-ground pool with a swim-up palapa bar and cascading waterfall, a huge hot tub, custom made gas and charcoal barbeques and a poolside bath house.

The home has two bedrooms and two baths on the first floor and two bedrooms and one large bath with 5 ton hand made limestone tub on the second floor. The house sleeps 12 comfortably. There is a full kitchen with eat at bar, a dining area and a large living room with a full entertainment unit. There is also a huge amount of outdoor living space throughout the compound which is completely walled in for privacy.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner can be found at most of the quaint little restaurants in Chelem or you may want to buy your own fresh local produce and meat at one of the nearby markets and prepare on your own.

Relax on the oceanside deck with your morning coffee and watch the dolphins play and the pelicans dive for their breakfast; swim in the ocean, sun by the pool or walk the beach in search of giant conk shells.

Chelem is the perfect tropical getaway. Not too close to the bustling crowds and cruise ship activity of Progresso, but not very far when you want to go and enjoy on your own terms.

Some of the famous Mayan ruins, such as Chichen Itza and Uxmal are under a 90 minute drive and many lessor known but just as impressive ruins are within 20 minutes of our home. A private tour guide can be provided at an additional cost.

Merida, the capital of Yucatan, is only a 30 minute drive and the city boasts some of the best shopping, museums and restaurants in Mexico as well as wonderful Spanish colonial architecture. It is also the SAFEST state in all of Mexico.

A vacation in the Yucatan gives you a chance to experience the cultures of Mexico and the Mayan world in a truly unique way!

About Robert Mullaney

My wife and I currently reside in coastal Massachusetts, and have been the owners and operators of our own HomeCare business since 2001. We spend time at our Chelem home every winter and have many friends and good neighbors in Mexico.

Robert Mullaney purchased this villa in 2008

Why Robert Mullaney chose Chelem

My wife and I wanted to really experience the local culture. This small fishing village is filled with the happiest, friendliest people on Earth and we fell in love with them!

What makes this villa unique

This is the perfect location. Away from the crowds when you want to be, but close enough to dive into all the local activities when it suits you. Walk off the porch and dive into the warm waters of the Emerald Coast. Relax to your hearts content and then tour the cities of Merida and Progresso, see Mayan ruins and cenotes, take a fishing trip or tour the mangroves to see wildlife and the Flamingo breeding grounds. The possibilities are endless!

My family of 8 including 3 children absolutely loved our stay in Chelem. The home was amazing and the sunsets were fantastic. Hopefully we can come back again some day. Shelley helped us immensely with any need. All the good things about the property include the pool, hot tub and bar.

Myan Culture Revisited - The Yucatan

  • 5 of 5
Best advice: take advantage of the contacts for daily transportation for at least half day tours, use the pick up and drop off service for the airport, plan on being off the beautiful grounds, air conditioned, immaculate, amendity rich, spacious home everyday, and pay for the housekeeping cooking service designed around your preferences.
Then relax like you never have before. See sunrises and sunsets that sooth and inspire. Watch in awe as the fisherman pole their way to their nets twice a day, and the pelicans drive for food all day long.
Sit in the hammock on the front deck and see nothing but ocean and birds, walk the beach for miles, do nothing.
Myan history abounds, and Chelem is a preserved fishing village that warrants sighseeing in its own right, but again I would do this with a guide. How else do you really know what the heck you are looking at?
Giant Pelicans in the mangroves across the salt flats that were mined as a commodity long before they were used to salt fish used in the Crusades....
Much greater value than cost. The owners have created a very classy, very exclusive retreat and sanctuary for healing and growth.

We arrived on a Sunday evening, got our car, and took a quick 30 minute ride straight to the house. We were told to make sure to wear our seat belts as the police were really enforcing the law. Wow, they weren't kidding. There was enough police presence that even the biggest worry wort (My Mother) would have felt safe.

Anyhow, enough about the police presence. We pulled off the main road in Chelem onto beautiful white sand road leading to the house. When the gate opened it was like driving into your own private resort. Coconut trees (yes, they are real and coconuts do sometimes fall), a banana tree, hot tub that I'm sure could have seated 15 people, gorgeous pool with a beautiful waterfall, and oh yes... the bar.

We headed straight through the house to the beach even though it was 11:30 at night (we had a late flight) to lapping waves and a prefect moon. After a couple of quick "boat drinks" we headed to bed.

The next morning I woke up early and checked the fridge to see what, if anything, had been left by the last guests. Score!!! Bacon and eggs. I made a quick breakfast for everyone and we headed out for the Mercado in Progreso. As a Chef this was a MUST do for me! I wasn't disappointed at all! Tons of fresh vegetables, meats, poultry, and of course seafood. I'd recommend to the novice that you stay away from the beef simply because it may not be beef. I'm just saying. I picked up a kilo of some of the freshest fish and headed to find some produce. With so many options it was hard not to buy a little of everything, but I stuck to my plan and picked only what we needed for that nights dinner. OK, so I lied... I couldn't resist buying a kilo of cheese.

I just noticed I only have 750 characters left so I'll speed this up.

On Mondays and Wednesdays the tour boats dock in Progresso which makes for a great opportunity to pick up a t-shirt for your nephew back home or whoever you suckered into watching your dog. Great people watching and don't miss stopping at Los Compadres for lunch (everything on the menu is 2 portions).

For the next few days we stayed close to the house and met a wonderful cast of characters (Zoltan the handyman, Alicia (AKA the translator and tour guide, Jorge the grounds keeper and Carmen the wonderful woman that agreed to teach me a few local dishes.

Running out of space... It's not just a beautiful place to relax there were tons of things to do and see in the area. I'm definitely planning to go back ASAP

Chelem on our mind... Forever...

  • 5 of 5
A quick word to let you know that all of us have really enjoyed our stay in Chelem. My wife and I have rented many properties around the world , and your house is one of the most beautiful property in which we stayed. We have particularly enjoyed the quiet and laid back atmosphere of this part of Yucatan, the kindness of the people as well as the amenities, comfort and beach location of the house. It was a PERFECT setting to celebrate Christmas and New Year with family.

On behalf of all of us, I would also like to commend Zoltan for his availability and responsiveness. His advices and help have certainly been a great factor in the quality of our stay. He is a wonderful and dedicated housekeeper.

This was a truly relaxing and wonderful vacation for all of us, and I will highly recommend this property to my relatives and friends. The home far exceeded our expectations.

Thank you again for allowing us to use your property and for making our stay in Yucatan memorable and pleasurable. We will certainly be back.

Phil

I have been to Mexico at least two dozen times & this is BY FAR the most beautiful property I have ever stayed at. The ocean is peaceful enough for anyone. Photos don't do it justice. The pool temperature is just warm enough for comfort & cool enough to refresh. Gardens are gorgeous too. Everything you need is here & in perfect shape. Fit for royalty. Our bed was the most comfy I've ever found in Mexico. I can't think of anything anyone could complain about. I can't even believe we are lucky enough to have found this Purple Pelican House. I am forever spoiled!!!!! Thank you to these owners for making it so pleasurable.

Awesome week at the Purple Pelican Palace

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation in Chelem was extremely relaxing. The accomodations were superb! The master suite was exquisite with the open doors at night listening to the ocean waves and being cooled by the breeze. The back of the house opened directly onto the beach while at the front entrance you are greeted by the pool, jacuzzi, waterfall and bar area. The full kitchen made meal and drink preparations easy and the bathrooms were large enought to accomodate 4 women getting ready for a night out at the same time!
The area is mostly residential and very safe. As a group of women we felt comfortable walking to town and taking runs on the beach. The neighbors were friendly and accomodating, sharing their beach toys and their Coronas!
I defiantely plan on scheduling another vacation at this beautiful residence.
