About Rick or JR

Rick or JR purchased this apartment in 2017

Why Rick or JR chose Chelem

This property has a sense of space and tranquility, and the beach is amazing.!! It is a very restive place with lots of amenities nearby and the beautiful colonial city of Merida is only 30 minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

True calm and peacefulness await. You can lay in a hammock on the veranda and read, stroll into town or explore colonial Merida, local cenotes or Mayan ruins

Great place and new rooms

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chelem for 3 nights and had a spectacular time. Rick answered all our questions really fast and over it was an amazing experience. I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to have a very relaxing time right in front of the beach.

An absolutely wonderful little oasis on the beach run by owners who truly care.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a week in Sol and a 2 weeks in Mar. We were very happy in both.

From the moment you walk into the walled securely walled courtyard with small pool and gardens you know you are in for a treat.

Well equipped, comfortable beds, lots of air flow, and abundant towels for beach and

bath. This is a new spot and the owners were extremely receptive to our and other guests

suggestions to make additions or changes. (ie: immediately providing a small chest freezer for those of us who wanted more ice and a place to freeze extra food) Any problems or issues were attended to as quickly as possible. Kim is the local contact making it easy to learn everything you want to know about the area regarding restaurants etc. She is (along with Stan) kind, receptive, and fun too!!!

The large tiled, covered veranda looking out over the beautiful beach is where we spent

many happy hours on lounge chairs or in hammocks just reading or sometimes

chatting with other guests .

In all, a very special spot to revisit without hesitation!
