|Vacation in the safe
and beautiful Yucatan
in the comfort of our
equipped beach house
on the Gulf of Mexico.
Have you visited the Yucatan yet?
There really isn't anywhere else in the world
like it. The warmth and old-world charm of
this unspoiled region of Mexico will make
you want to return again and again. We offer
a large, private home on a serene sand
beach, east of Progreso on the Gulf of
You will be near the beautiful colonial city of
Mérida, the business capital of the Yucatan,
where there are wide, palm tree-lined
avenues, horse-drawn carriage tours,
mansions and museums. The shopping is
fabulous and there are countless
restaurants catering to every taste and price
range. For those who can't live without a
taste of home, there is TGIF and Applebees,
Home Depot and Costco.
Beachfront Home for Rent
We offer the rental of our beautiful, beach-front home
year-round. It has a fully equipped kitchen and all linens are
provided. You'll have your own small oceanfront pool, and our
property manager is just a phone call away. Shopping,
cooking and/or maid service can be arranged if you wish for a
small extra charge.
Come and experience the true nature of Mexico's natural
beauty, where you can swim in the Gulf every day, visit
numerous nearby ruins, snorkel a cenote gleaming with
colourful fish, shop a local market, or surf-fish in the shallow
waters directly in front of your beach house. In summer, the
sea-turtles make their way onto the beach to lay eggs in the
hot sand. The winds blowing from the Gulf have made this
area famous for fantastic windsurfing, too.
|The beach is wide, white and perfect for walking,
shell-collecting, or throwing a football, baseball or
frisbee. It's also private enough that you are
certain to find shells worthy of collecting each
time you go for a walk.
The swimming is good, with gentle or no surf and
sandy bottom as far out as you care to walk. It's
very much like Wasaga Beach - shallow almost
forever. (This is why it's near the world's longest
pier - it has to be seven kilometers long to go
deep enough for the cruise ships to dock!)
You can watch the beautiful
sunrises and sunsets from the
front deck or the back terrazza
while you listen to the waves.

Just a half-hour drive north on a well-maintained highway you come to the Gulf Coast and Progreso, which is flanked to the
west and east by sleepy fishing villages. Progreso is a bustling port town where you will find authentic markets, wonderful
restaurants, and stores offering all the services you could want. When the cruise ships come in, the Malecon, Progreso's
waterfront boardwalk, is lined with vendors. You will likely enjoy several dinners watching the sunset from one of the Malecon's
charming restaurants, then drive twenty minutes home along the coastal highway to your beach house.
Below is a view of the beach in both directions,
taken from the front of the house. You may
notice there are no people in sight, and that is
usual for winter months, when we visit.
Spring, summer and fall, the Gulf and the
beach are at their best. In winter, the nortes,
heavy winds from the north, roughen the
waters of the Gulf and often bring seaweed to
line the water's edge. While the beach and
weather are not optimum the three months of
winter, the sightseeing, shopping, tanning and
tranquil siestas remain as enjoyable as ever,
and the weather is nice and warm.

Through the gate on the
other side of the cement
wall are the beach and the
Gulf of Mexico.
