Wonderful Home & Beach Front Property
We stayed at BarMar for 10 days over the Christmas holidays. Adriana met us at the house and gave us a tour and explained how a few things work. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated and spacious with well appointed kitchen and 4 full bathrooms. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer, a second fridge, a stand up freezer. The home also has a filtered water cooler, a kitchen fridge with filtered water and ice maker, plus air conditioning and fans in every room, and a charcoal BBQ. The kitchen has a gas cooktop and toaster oven, but no stove and no dishwasher, which was fine for us. The hot water is “on demand” and worked well in all the showers, but not so well in the kitchen. However, there is a filtered water cooler with a hot water tap in the kitchen that we used for washing dishes.
The property is very private with no immediate neighbours, which we loved. We throughly enjoyed the kayaks, the pool, the soccer pitch and the large sandy beach yard. BarMar is beach front and fortunate with its own large sandy yard that was perfect for sunning and beach games. The actual ocean beach, just steps ahead of the property’s sandy yard was unfortunately, and due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, densely covered with sea grass that the tides bring in. We were told by locals that this has been a persistent problem in the Yucatan for the past few years. Occasionally the tide also washes the grass away. We saw it for 9 of the 10 days of our stay, but it did not interfere with the enjoyment of our stay. The water is still accessible and the view is still amazing.
When we first arrived we did a major shop for food at the Costco in Merida, which is about a 40 minute drive. There is also an Oxxo convenience store located about 15 minutes west, and the town of Progreso, with a large grocery store is a further 7 minutes west. You definitely need a vehicle if you’re staying at BarMar and want to do some sight seeing. There is plenty to see and do nearby including touring dozens of fascinating Mayan ruins, beautiful/incredible cenotes and peaceful flamingo estuaries.
We highly recommend BarMar for its beauty, beach front location, privacy and gracious & cooperative host.
Thank you very much for your words and very well explication of the location.
We will love to have you back soon in BarMar.
Excellent Stay on the Beach
We have stayed in many beach houses up and down the Yucatan coast and Adriana’s house is by far the best. We enjoyed the house so much we hope to return next year.
The interiors are excellent and very practical for a beach holiday. The beach is quiet, and a highlight was taking the kayaks out on the water. The towns of Telchac & Progreso are relatively close by for lunches & dinner.
Thank you Natalie, we hope to have you back at BarMar soon. You were very nice guests.
Fantastic Stay in a Beautiful Beachfront Home
The attentive owners, Adriana and Ricardo, have truly made every effort to make their home your home away from home. My husband and I enjoyed our week stay at Bel Mar especially making use of the kayaks, the pool, long beach walks and waking up to gorgeous views. The home is beautifully decorated and very spacious. We loved hanging out on the shaded terrace protected from the afternoon winds and cooked more meals than we intended because we just didn't want to leave this gorgeous home. Although there is no full size oven or dishwasher, we had no problem cooking some great meals. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, and cooking utensils. There is a supermarket in Progreso that is pretty well stocked and also a Walmart on the way in from the airport.
We ate twice at Techno Beach Hotel, a short stroll down the beach. They have a pretty good menu (shrimp, fish and a few meat dishes) with reasonable prices and a full bar. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and accept credit cards. Progreso is about 20 minutes west where there is large selection of restaurants and Telchac Puerto is about 15 east with a few restaurants. Merida is a beautiful town that is worth seeing and is about 45 minutes south. Nearby the home we saw Mayan ruins and flamingos at Laguna Rosa.
We came for total relaxation and were not disappointed! It is obvious that the owners take great pride in their home and we were so happy to have found this gem!
We appreciate your comments, thank you.
And we really love that our guests enjoy their stay at BarMar feeling like home.
We hope to have you back soon.
Perfect place for a week getaway, only regret is that we did not book 2 weeks! Adriana and Ricardo were very welcoming and accommodating. If our travels bring us back to the area we would not hesitate to stay here again!
Thank you!!! We will love to have you back, you are excellent guests.
Easy beautiful comfort on the Beach
This 3 bedroom 4 bath new villa with pool on the beach 15 minutes from Progreso is a relaxed delight. If you are looking for a seaside comfortable vacation with everything you need for an easy stay, you really can't do any better than this lovely house. Great kitchen and bathrooms, 2 bedrooms with en suite baths, third bedroom with bath on the hall, large living/dining room overlooking pool and beach. Bedrooms are all up a stairway that could use a bannister for safety. 2 bedrooms overlook the ocean. A/C everywhere you need it although during February to early March it was not necessary. Wonderful patio off the living room that provides shelter from the sometimes stiff breezes and leads to the pool and then a private beach just steps away. Fully equipped kitchen makes cooking at home easy with a large supermarket/department store just a 15 drive away. The house has the feeling of being new and provides everything you need for an oceanside stay. Hotel 5 minute walk down the beach has a good restaurant with both Mexican and American items on the menu. The pool is delightful, the ocean warmish, the beach covered with lovely shells and great for walks. highly recommended for a relaxed stay at the beach. Close to several Mayan sites and the city of Progreso. Car recommended. We would definitely return.
Thank you for your lovely words. We will love to have you back.
I've been vacationing in Mexico for 10 years and was looking for someplace new to try. I stumbled across this region and this house. While I had no idea about the area, the house looked perfect. Let me be the first to say that the pictures are great, being there is even better. The house is beautiful, the peacefulness of the setting and being able to walk right out on to the beach was just amazing. The homeowners were great and answered any questions I had leading up to and during our stay. I will certainly be back.
