BEACH VILLA YUCATAN MEXICO. POOL, SLPS 10, 5 bdrms
The place was beautiful, as advertised. well furnished will all the amenities. We had an opportunity to meet the owners and they were fabulous and very helpful. They arranged for us to meet a guide and a driver to take us on many excursions and it was unbelievable. It was a great place to lounge around and the pool was a nice relief from the heat. We were close to the Ocean and had many opportunities to walk the beach. There is a live in housekeeper in an attached building with her husband and they are very helpful with anything that may come up. We spent a Month there and if the opportunity comes up again, we would not hesitate to stay.
Liked best: lots of room, three levels and we had Group of 7 seniors. If you wanted some alone time was easy to arrange .
Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?   Yes

Buena Noche,
Just a few words to let you know how much we had enjoyed your Castillo.
We have appreciated the space we had with the family. We used the second floor, while the family with the 2 children (Martin, Nancy, Maxym & Mégane, used the 1st floor, and my daughter, Marie-Soleil, with the baby, Loumi, used the ground floor.
I personally loved the wood carved furniture. How exotic !
Everyone loved the swimming pool the children, even the 2 years old one, we took sometimes, up to 4 dips a day !
The big guys enjoyed the hammock and, you were right, the baby loved it.
We went on the beach every day but seldom swim since it was very windy.
Martha and Lucio were very nice and we found them very gentle and helpful when we needed their services, even though it was hard to communicate. All the toys we had for the children we left for the little girl Lisa.
We have been a bit around: Of course, Mérida two times, which is very nice; we took a city tour and had lunch at Amoro and dinner at Poncho.
We went to Celestun by ourselves, Martin rented a car since they needed it as well to go back to Cancun to take the plane back to Montreal. We had a good guide who showed us the flamingos and other bird species, mangrove and a fresh spring. We went through also a couple of typical Yucatan villages. I was really amazed to see all these direct descendants from the Maya. Their artisanal is very colorful ; unhappily we are at the beginning of the trip and I cannot overload my suitcase but the girls bought some nice pieces.
We had a fresh swim at Samula cenote towards Motul and had lunch at Telchac Puerto.

There would be a lot more to talk about but most importantly is thank you for that exchange, we would recommend your place anytime.
We send you attached a photo souvenir.

Yolande and Roch (from Quebec 4/1/12 to 4/15/12)

Your house is really beautiful though and everything was great! Some of the things we did were:
Celestun, Merida (spent a night), San Ignacia cenote, the three cenotes where you go on the horse
ride (very cool!) Uxmal pyramids and checked out Progreso pretty good
(but it was very quiet) and the nearby areas Coco Beach, etc.
Thanks so much again, Stan & Annie!
From all of us!
Jayne and Wes, see you soon!

Hi Stan: No problem. I think we read about it in the Yucatan today. It was such a unique
experience, you should recommend it to anyone who comes to your place. It was in Cuzuma. A
bit of a drive but fine nevertheless. It's best to get there early in the day, as we had to wait quite a
while for a horse cart. The driver takes you on a 4 person cart on these railway tracks led by the
horse for about 7km. You visit 3 very diff. cenotes and can stay as long as you want at each stop.
Your driver works for you. It is a bit hazardous for elderly. Go at your own risk for sure. It's
fantastic though. Really, really unique. Crazy how they found them even. It's way out in the bush.

Definately a highlight.
Thanks Stan,
Jayne

WE are so happy! 4/17/11
Your place is absolutely wonderful, everything is perfect, and I am in love with George Jr.(haha).
We went dancing last night in Progresso with the locals until 2, music was  Cumbia-ish, but they
had their own style and taught us!
I was clearly the only blue eyed one in the place, and Paul is 6'-4, but they were so friendly.
Thank you!!!!!
Elizabeth

Hi Stan, 4/28/11
Well, we had the most amazing time. Your place was a joy, and I did 40 laps in the pool almost
everyday. There was just so much to do. We enjoyed Merida at night, and also Progresso. We
loved the "Yucatan beach " club and also Celestun with amazing ceviche, as a respite from
climbing over amazing pyramids in the mid day sun.
The only thing not back to normal is our stomachs, but they should recover soon as we got the
antibiotics yesterday. No we never drank any water, we are just gringos... but it was all worth it.
Also , embarrassingly, my husband lost the little paper they give you when you arrive, so they
would not let us leave Merida on Easter Sunday, as there was apparently no one available to do
the paperwork. We drove to Cancun in a rental car, and 23 hours later ( and $600 ) we were
home, guess that "learned" him. Seeing the Cancun airport reinforced just how lucky we were to
be at your place.
Thank you for a most cherished vacation that we would never have had with out you.
Elizabeth

We are back home. We came back with great souvenirs from our trip. You Castillo es magnifico!
It was like on the pictures. We were a little bit scared at the beginning but we will recommend your place without a doubt. Lucio and Martha were very nice and Licia is beautiful. We cuddle her a lot.
Thank you so much, it was a great experience. We are looking to buy a house in Mexico, we visited, but nothing as beautiful as yours.

For anyone who prefers "off the beaten path" accommodation, in its most agreeable and relaxing sense, we thoroughly recommend the Castillo Nicte Ha.
Thanks to Anie and Stan for their thoughtful hospitality and Marta and Lucio for on-site assistance.

What we were looking for on our most recent trip to Mexico was peace and quiet, without any rumbling trucks, honking horns, or Activities Directors shouting "Volleyball in 5 minutes." And we found it - in spades - in the
penthouse at Castillo Nicte Ha, in Chicxulub, Yucatan.

Beautiful house. Thank you for making it so comfortable for our group

wow

A pool will make this place just perfect. ( Note by owner, A pool was completed in Jan 07)

What a lovely place.

A most comfortable and spacious house. All handcrafted carved furnishings.
