Chuburna, which is a non-

is inviting and refreshing. The
cooling ocean breeze is the perfect air conditioner. Enjoy coffee or
a cold drink sitting out in the
terrace, take a stroll on the beach, read a book or just relax in a
hammock all day long.
You hardly find a house so fantastic....!!!!

The town of Chelem description:
Chelem is a small fishing town with a calm environment which makes it
the ideal place to relax and
enjoy the sea. Chelem is known for its sandy streets, coconut palm
trees, and a multitude of animal
life including flamingos, ducks, pelicans, herons, and at the end of
a rainy day, dolphins are know
to appear across the horizon.

tortillas, several small grocery
stores, hardware stores for all your household and fishing needs, a
cell tower to stay in touch with
home as well as internet cafes in nearby Progreso.
El inmueble está genial, muy cómodo, la decoración está mas que maravillosa. Los muebles están muy amenos con la decoración, no dudo en regresar. Lo único malo es que no incluye el wifi, se paga a parte y hay un buen de problemas con la recepción de celular.
The casita is so charming, and is filled with creative details, great artwork done by the owner, comfortable living areas, and just about anything needed to make it a truly great experience. I was there for a month, and anytime some little thing needed attention the owner was very responsive and made sure that all was well. I would go back in a heart beat, as the house is in a great location close to both Chuburna and Chelem, not too far from Merida to go into the city for little day trips for sight seeing and shopping, a quick drive to Progreso for a good grocery, or a doctor if needed, etc. There are many little surprises in the area for dining, including a Thai Restaurant just down the road, and lots of friendly residents who are both locals and expats. The beach is wonderful, and a great place to watch the birds dive for fish, or an evening sunset.
Casita is plenty big for 2 couples and has the amenities necessary for cooking at home. WiFi is excellent if you opt for it and there are some English TV programs. House can be very noisy when the winds are strong due to the close proximity to the water. Lovely Mayan pool on the patio and shady areas to sit outside. Had a couple of minor issues and Mauricio and his father Jose were there immediately to attend to them. Very attentive owners and a lovely fruit basket and fresh flowers upon our arrival. Chelem is a very quiet village - no resorts, no nite clubs and Spanish speaking. Fresh fruit, fresh fish and groceries can be found in town as well as some good local restaurants A car is recommended if you wish to explore the other villages and visit Progresso. This is a destination to relax, read and watch the waves
MY FAMILY AND I WERE VERY HAPPY, WE ENJOYED A HOLIDAYS VERY QUIET AND THE CHILDREN ENJOYED THE POOL. THE ENVIRONMENT WAS VERY NICE AND SAFE.
THE DESIGN OF THE HOUSE IS VERY DIFFERENT AND HOMELY, EACH CORNER IS A SPECIAL SPACE.
I DELIVERED THE CLEAN PROPERTY AND IN GOOD CONDITIONS. THE BATHROOM, NEAR THE POOL, HAD TOWELS. WE NEVER LACKED WATER AND ELECTRIC ENERGY.
I RECOMMEND IT TO MY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.
MY FAMILY AND I ARE INVITED FOR COME BACK OTHER WEEKENDS IN THE FUTURE, WE FELT LIKE IN HOUSE.
FUE UNA GRATA ESTADIA UNOS DIAS EN LA CASITA DE CHELEM.. ES UN LUGAR AMPLIAMENTE RECOMENDABLE, LA CASA EN EXELENTES CONDICIONES CON VISTA AL MAR, CON ESPACIOS COMODOS Y CONFORTABLES, EXELENTE TRATO POR PARTE DE LOS PROPIETARIOS; DEFINITIVAMENTE VOLVERIA A REPETIR LA EXPERICIA.

La Casita de Chelem is one of three houses together on a large lot. The houses are all owned and rented by the same family. La Casita and another house are right on the beach. The third house is behind them but has a view of the beach and very easy access.
La Casita is a very open airy house with large windows and doors all the way around. The architecture is unique, very functional, and makes for a pleasant living experience. There was a refreshing breeze most of the time, but in the hottest weather air condition might be advisable. The pool is a wonderful bonus on the property for when you don't want to swim in the salt water. There is an outside shower to rinse off and a direct entrance to one of the bathrooms where you can shower inside. The kitchen space is very simple but there were adequate pots, pans and utensils to cook our meals.
We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.
