Why John Bell chose Chelem
We stumbled onto Chelem while doing an internet search, booked a flight down here, fell in love with area, the climate, the locals and the expats, and promptly bought the first of three homes here. This rental property is the third home we have bought here, and was entirely designed, and the construction overseen, by us. Construction was completed in 2009.
What makes this estate unique
We have tried to capture a hacienda-feel to the property, while still having the most up-to-date amenities. Almost every room looks out onto the sparkling waters of the Gulf. French doors in the dining/living room are about sixteen-feet wide to capture the water views.
