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. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Hosts Stanley and Anie Gardner seem to have thought of just about everything we needed in the kitchen. And it was an easy drive into Progreso, just 8 miles away, to shop in the excellent local supermarket, (San Francisco de Assissi) which helped keep our dining costs down. We also enjoyed the occasional night out in one of Progreso's beach side restaurants.
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.

Hello Stan and Annie,
We are back home. We came back with great souvenirs from our trip. Your 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. We passed a lot of time out of the house ; Progreso, Merida, Uman, San Igniacio, Telchac
we visited. My children appreciate their house, and food more now. We saw a lot of poverty and garbage! Ah ah
We didnt really understand about paying for the cleaning but we paid Martha and Lucio. I realised that you said that you would deduct it from the security deposit
so now it is already paid. We gave them extra money too and gifts for the new baby. Some pictures to come in the next e-mail.
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.
