About Us
Your hosts, Henry and Nancy Casten, have always wanted to own affordable, oceanfront property in a safe and interesting area, and have found such a place in Telchac Puerto and the Yucatan. Nancy is a nutritionist in a children's food program and Henry is a retired search consultant who placed scientists and engineers.
Our property manager, Ivonne, was born in Mexico City, then moved to Tampa Florida in 1985 where she studied and worked for almost 17 years. She started in the housekeeping business in the States in 1996. With her daughter growing up, she decided to move back to Mexico to raise her. The adventure of returning to Mexico started in 2003 in Progreso, Yucatan where she managed a hotel for four years. Since 2008, she has run her own property management company, managing properties and rentals for over 20 clients in the Merida and coastal areas of the Yucatan.
"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
