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 didn’t really understand about paying for the cleaning but Martha said that we had to pay her. So we gave her 50$ us for the week like you asked us but when I came back home 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 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.

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.
