Why Tony Simon chose Chicxulub Puerto

I love Chicxulub me and my family are fishing and water sport fans and the gulf coast is just safe and perfect for it. We are just in love of the people here they are polite and give smile always. Location of the house is just awesome, its close to everywhere. The beach, sun and ocean are just perfect, life is simple and based on seize our everyday here.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like do everything with the background sound of the waves and a fresh sea breeze and if you add the idea to wakeup and go to bed with the peaceful of the ocean is just amazing.

The Master Suite its perfect, stay relaxed at the balcony on a hammock lounge chair or chose to go downstairs to take a fresh dip first in the ocean and then in the pool to relive myself. Listening my favorite music while I’m watching shooting stars its one of the things that I always suggest. Food its just one of the advantages having options like sea food, a great pasta or just fresh fruits or veggies from the market. Gonzalo and Olivia are our caretakers and they are also yours and there for whatever you need but give you all your privacy, he will help you with all you need about the functions of the house and also with the pool cleaning and Olivia could also help you with special recipies of traditional and sea food, just ask them about whatever.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I have just returned from a four week stay at Villa Mercedes 2. We had a wonderful and restful vacation, which was exactly what we were looking for. The house was exactly as described, if anything it was even larger that the pictures show. The kitchen has everything needed to cook and serve large meals with room at the dining room table for everyone. It was a pleasure to meet Tony and have him share a bit of his family history with us. We had locked ourselves out of the safe (our fault) and Tony came to our rescue immediately, driving all the way from Merida. Gonzalo and Olivia , the caretakers, are close by and were always willing to help with any thing we asked for. The people of Chicxulub were so friendly and although our Spanish is very limited and not many townspeople speak English we have no problem communicating. We took the bus to Progreso and Merida numerous times and found it to be so easy to use that we were glad we hadn't rented a car. Thank you Tony for making us feel so welcome and that your home was our home. I'm looking forward to coming back again hopefully

June 2017 review

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. Tony was very easy to work with and very responsive. His caretakers reside in back of the property and, also, were very responsive and courteous. The home is set up quite well for enjoyment of the home itself and the pool. The ocean water was very warm and comfortable for swimming. There are a lot of fishing boats on the beach. Chixculub is a wonderful area and Tony provided great recommendations for restaurants and activities. The home is close to grocery shopping and restaurants.

Wonderful Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was spent at Villa Mercedes 2 for four weeks this spring (Feb-Mar) and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience! Right from our first contact to the last our experience with Tony was exceptional; he was very friendly, professional, and helpful and was prompt to respond! The very large home was exactly as pictured with an extra set of clean bedding & towels for each guest. When you walk into the home you can see straight through to the pool, palm trees, white sandy beach, and right through to the Gulf of Mexico, it was very beautiful! The village of Chicxulub was exactly what we were hoping for, ‘Old Mexico’, not commercialized at all!! We found a few good restaurants in the village and also in Progreso which was only a 7 minute drive away or just buy fish from a local fisherman or fresh prawns from the gentlemen who stopped by the house ever couple days and cook in your own kitchen! At the north end of Merida there is a Costco for those who like to stock up, perishables can easily be purchased in either Chicxulub or Progreso. Apparently, there is over 5000 Cenotes in the area, a definite must to take in a few if you are in the Yucatan, they are breathtaking! Along with a tour of at least one of the ancient Mayan ruins, absolutely incredible! Visiting Merida & Uman along with eating fresh coconuts poolside were additional highlights of our trip! All in all a Great Vacation slowing down, enjoying the sun, sand and water! We hope to return again in the future!! Thank you again Tony for sharing our families vacation home with us!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

Villa Mercedes 2 was a great base for our 12-day vacation in Yucatan in early October 2015. The house and its commanding beach-front location gave us the option of spending time getting inspired by the surrounding landscape or exploring the nearby natural and cultural wonders representative of this area of México.

The house is tastefully appointed and well equipped to provide all the comforts from home and Gonzalo and Olivia are always ready to take care of any eventualities. We actually had enough time to explore most of the recommended sites that Tony suggested in his welcome package. Here is a summary of three of them where the reader may benefit from our experience:

Chichen Itza: Always impressive Mayan city of the classical period. My wife and I visited the site many years ago so we wanted to visit it again. We enjoyed a full day there but would volunteer a few warnings: 1) If your camera looks too professional or if you are carrying a tripod, you will not be allowed entry with your equipment. You have the option to secure it in your car before you enter the site (I did not like this option even if the only reason would have been the heat inside a car’s trunk. 2) You are no longer allowed to climb the pyramids or the other structures; they are off-limits to visitors (that was not the case during our first visit to Chichen Itza and Uxmal many years ago). 3) The souvenir vendors have taken over all surrounding areas to the monuments and reduce somewhat the enjoyment of the site with their constant peddling.

Dzibilchaltun: Though a smaller Mayan enclave when compared to Chichen Itza, Dzibilchaltun is still impressive and it is so close to Villa Mercedes 2 that visiting the site is very effortless. It has a very nice cenote within its limits where visitors are allowed to swim. The same restrictions about cameras are also in effect at Dzibilchaltun; after the experience in Chichen Itza, I was prepared this time and avoided taking my DSLR and drone. In addition, in Dzibilchaltun, you are not allowed to enter any bags (backpacks, large purses, etc.).

Celestun: A very nice bio-reserve where you can take boat tours of shallow mangrove-lined waterways where flamingos come to socialize by the thousands. Only problem: plan your trip for December or January. Flamingos have other things to do during October and not many of them will be around to greet you.

Overall, this was a great vacation for us… We will be back!
