About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and the commercialism of Cancun, this is the place for you! Chuburna Puerto, Yucatan, is one of two small fishing villages just minutes from Progreso. A bird lover’s haven, this area is known for its quite beaches, serene surroundings and outdoor living.

The property is walled with an electronic gate providing secured parking and a private courtyard welcoming you. The house boasts a beautiful beach side pool surrounded by magnificent gardens with a resort feel. Sliding glass doors with screens open up to outside living and allow the cool ocean breezes to flow throughout the house. With its panoramic view and open concept living, this house is a seaside treasure. Upscale furnishings are welcoming and designed for comfort. The two upstairs master suites have private terraces and beautiful ocean views, both uniquely appointed and well furnished. One of the upstairs suites also features a bathtub, which is uncommon in Mexico. An attached casita offers a master suite with complete privacy and includes a bathtub as well. There are also two downstairs bedrooms complete with ensuite bathrooms. The house is air conditioned throughout. All of the bedrooms also have a ceiling fan with the exception of the casita. Kitchen has granite countertops and upgraded stainless steel appliances. It comes complete with cooking utensils and dishes for a nice dinner at home. An outdoor grill is available for you to grill your fresh fish. A laundry room with a washer and dryer gives you all the necessities.

Come experience the Yucatan and the beauty of this house and you will know paradise. The property manager is just a phone call away to help with any needs. Local grocery stores and restaurants are a 5 minute drive away and the Port of Progreso is 15 minutes away. All types of shopping and dining is available there and it is especially fun on the days cruise ships are in port. Progreso also has medical care available. Merida is a colonial city approximately a 40 minute drive away and offers all of the conveniences of city life. It is home to a large selection of American stores, such as Costco, Sam’s, and Wal-Mart.

Answers to some frequently asked questions-

*Yes, I feel safe in this area. While Mexico has gained a reputation for crime over the last several years, Merida and the Yucatan boasts being the safest area. Most crimes committed are those of opportunity, not violence. Use common sense as you would when traveling anywhere. Do not flash cash or expensive jewelry and do not leave valuables out in plain site or leave doors unlocked.

*You will need to bring Pesos for shopping in Chuburna and Chelem. Credit Cards and American dollars are not as widely accepted as in tourist areas.

*Your Sam's and Costco membership cards from home will work in Merida.

*Do not drink the water, even to brush your teeth. Purified drinking water will be provided for you. You can make ice with the purified water or buy it in town. It is safe. You can also order drinks in town with ice and not worry. They are using purified water to make their ice. We have never had a problem.

*You do not have to speak Spanish, but knowing some basic words help. Many locals speak English, but not everyone.

*Do your homework on rental cars before you come. Many post insanely cheap prices per day online and charge you outrageous amounts for "mandatory" insurance. Check with your local insurance agent and call your credit card company to confirm exactly what coverage you may have out of the country if any, and what you will need to purchase.

*There is a bus service to and from Progreso. They run approximately every 15 minutes. There are also taxi services available.

Please feel free to inquire if you have any additional questions. Our casa is su casa!

About Rena McLoud

My husband and I love to travel and tend to favor Caribbean Islands or other beach locations. Some of our best trips have been with friends and family renting beach houses and enjoying the laid back lifestyle it offers. It has been our always been our dream to have our own beach house someday. We have had some experience with rental property in the U.S. and decided to follow our dreams and expand our horizons. Life is too short to have regrets!

Rena McLoud purchased this house in 2016

Why Rena McLoud chose Chuburna Puerto

We walked into this home, saw the emerald ocean views and outdoor living area and fell in love! While the beautiful beach needs no explanation, the pool, patio, and terraces are perfect for wasting away the hours staring at the ocean. The whole house can be opened up to enjoy the breezes and allow the outdoors in. We loved the fact it was large with five bedrooms and baths to give everyone individual privacy when needed. This property has everything we look for in a beach house and we thought others would enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

We made our first trip to the Progreso area needing a peaceful getaway. We found that and so much more! The quaint little fishing villages of Chelem and Chuburna are very calming places. We love the slower pace of life and the lack of crowds we've become accustomed to in other beach areas. There are enough expats to feel very comfortable, but the lack of commercialism still leaves room for a little adventure everyday.

Very nice!

It is such a lovely place. Peaceful and safe. The management was very prompt is responding and taking care of any inquiries. My family with kids loved the stay. There are lots of local places to eat and it is very affordable if you are on a budget.

Property is true to photos

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of seven staying at this property. It was great that everyone had their own room w/ private bathroom.

Amenities such as washer and dryer mean you don't have to pack a lot!

The property manager Veronica and assistant Angel were very hospitable, obliging and service oriented. We had the benefit of their local insights for excursions, shopping, groceries and a ride to and from the airport.

We love that this house was right on the beach and had a dip pool as well.

Best stamp of approval is that I would rent this property again and based on our experience, many of our friends would love to as well in the future.

An Amazing Getaway Week!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time booking a house rather than staying at an all inclusive. We definitely will be doing this again. The owner welcomed any questions we had. The property manager picked us up from the airport for a fee as we did not want to rent a car. She was friendly, courteous and available during the week if we needed anything. Wish we could have stayed longer

Perfect home on the beach for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location for a spring break trip! My sister lives in Merida, and this was my older kids' first trip to Mexico, so we were looking for a relaxing beach vacation to spend time with family (we have 5 kids, ages 16, 15, 11, 4, and 2). The home is spacious and comfortable. Even when my sister and her family (husband & 2 kids, ages 3 and 4 months) were visiting, we had plenty of room. All the kids loved playing in the pool in the back, which was very clean. The big kids came and went to the beach as they pleased--it's right at the back of the house and it was easy for parents at the pool to keep an eye on older ones at the beach. Modern refrigerator & stove w/ 6 burners--we cooked lunches and dinners most days, but went into the local town to a small carnival and for a seafood lunch. Plenty of bedrooms and everything was very comfortable and clean and in good working order. A 5-star experience!!
