About Tony Simon

Beach/Sea guy, water sports lover (slalom, deepsea fishing, wakeboard).

Living 30 minutes from the house at a great place called Merida since I was born.

Graduate from Universidad Marista and University of Dayton Ohio.

Tony Simon purchased this house in 2009

Why Tony Simon chose Progreso

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. Life could be resume in easier, safety and peaceful at Villa Mercedes 2, You are more than welcome to come!!

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!

Fantastic house and location!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week in the Yucatan and had a wonderful trip. We want to thank Tony and his family for sharing their large and beautiful home with us, and to Gonzalo and Olivia for taking care of us while we were there. Dealing with Tony before our arrival was a great pleasure, he communicated promptly, fully and with humor leading up to our trip. Each morning we had coffee on the large patio while listening to the waves and palm frond gently swaying in the breeze. The bed was very comfortable and we had everything was provided for a very luxurious and well appointed holiday. Each day we went for long swims in the bath water temperature gulf, ate nothing but fresh fish and never once turned on a TV. The people of the Yucatan are very friendly and helpful, even to those of us who are not fluent Spanish speakers. I would highly recommend staying at this property (and we already have) and look forward to returning!!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

An excellent vacation house. Tony, the host was a friendly and pleasant person. Gonzales and Olivia, the care takers, were wonderful and most helpful. We stayed for ten days and found the house location perfect. We walked to the town square in the morning for fresh squeezed orange juice. The square also has a small market for supplies. It was an easy walk on the beach to nearby restaurants. The view of the beach was wonderful. Lots of Canadian and American sun lovers around. A great place to stay in the warm Mexican sun.

What a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and family spend the Christmas holidays here. The house was beautiful. The kitchen was great and we cook some great meals in the kitchen, very well equipped. And the location was perfect. The house was so nice it was hard to leave. We visited some wonderful Mayan ruins and cenotes. We went to Progreso for some dinners. We felt very welcome everywhere we went.
