of local decor. The living/dining area is spacious and opens with
two sets of sliding glass doors to a covered patio overlooking our
private beach. We provide all that you need from linens to a well-

If you are ambitious, you might take a ride to Ticul known for its pottery and shoes or Oxkutzcab, the primary produce town of the area. Celestun is also a beautiful town known for its ecotourism and flamingos.
Owner Supplied Testimonials
I spent the month of January, 2011 at the villa and didn't want to come home. The listing details and photos are completely accurate. If anything, I found the villa to be more impressive than the pictures depicted. Spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The owners were extremely helpful and provided tips and information that I found invaluable. The location is fairly remote, so a car is necessary. We took several side trips to visit various ruins, cenotes and nearby towns. The local population was very friendly and accommodating. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many good restaurants along the way. Yucatean food is excellent. The caretaker, Manuel, also will deliver excellent dishes to the villa at very reasonable prices. The villa is located on a very quiet and serene stretch of beach that provides almost complete privacy. If you are interested in active night life, this is not the place. You would have to drive into Progresso or Merida for nighttime activities. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway with some cultural trips on the side, I would highly recommend Villa De Brisas Marinas.

There were three couples in our paty. We arrived on Dec. 26th, rented two cars at the Cancun Airport, and drove to the villa. We were amazed at the beautiful Mexican highway systems, the well-marked roads and the exact directions we received form our hosts. The villa was spotlessly clean, very spacious with plenty of room for us to spread out. We became friends with the handyman who cares for the villa--such a nice man! He cooked 2 delicious meals for us and took the men fishing in his Panga. The town was very close to the villa and we all enjoyed eating at the little restaurants and meeting the friendy residents. You won't be disappointed if you choose this beautiful villa in this quaint little village!

My sister and I stayed there in 2008. I think it is one of the most relaxing places I have ever been. The Villa is absolutley beautiful and you do not have to go to far to shop for groceries. We got Manuel to cook for us and that was an added plus. What I loved most about staying in the Villa is the peacefullness and the beautiful sunsets from the villa. I wish I was there now!

"We are quite happy with our stay. We felt safe and well cared for. Manuel was a peach and took us on a nice fishing trip and brought us great ceviche and snacks. We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to recommend your villa." -- Jim S., Snohomish, WA
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa de Brisas Marinas last January. We felt like we were in paradise. We liked all the restaurants nearby, as well as the charming community.

Nancy, I just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our Christmas vacation at your villa. It was very relaxing. Manuel was wonderful!
-- Mary Beth O., Atlanta, GA
Wow! A beautiful house in a beautiful place, with a beautiful view. The beach is so inviting, clean and practically uninhabited. The whole environment is so safe, quiet, relaxing and serene. We took day trips to ruins, cenotes and wildlife reserves, as well as visiting local towns for dinner and culture. The house has great spaces for privacy or communal eating and hanging out. Everyone associated with the rental was helpful and friendly. It's really the perfect place to do nothing, or explore this part of Mexico.
-- Dan R., Los Angeles, CA
"John and I just want to thank-you for sharing your beautiful villa with us. The pictures were nice but I really couldn't believe my eyes when lovely Manuel opened the door for us. We awoke and fell asleep to the sound of the ocean every day." -- P. Charron, Ottawa, Canada
