We rented from Yucatan Vacation Home Rentals detached house located at Calle 31 between 74 and 76 in Progreso. There was no house number, but I would guess #117 or #117b. There was no house number in our contract from some reason.
Anyhow we paid good money to stay there, $1300 + $200 for a 4-week period in February 2013. No pool, no A/C, no laundry....cockroaches, mouldy, horrible water pressure, one of two bathrooms totally useless...dusty backyard with dangerous sinkhole. If you have children, pets or allergies you don't want to stay there.
The very same day after we had paid in full, the property manager in charge, Maria Jose (who was actually the house owner) sent us an email from her private email address different from firstname.lastname@example.org asking for more money.
Very busy and congested street and with no decent backyard to speak of. We had to sit outside in the front entrance garage area. While converted to a nice sitting area, it is still very noisy, dusty and smelly with vehicle exhaust from the street.
The house had a number of invisible problems. For example, as lovely as the master suite bathroom appeared, its underlying plumbing left a lot to be desired.
To my surprise, we were constantly harassed by the property manager and her disturbed (?) family members who did not speak any English. Accordingly I was not pleased with their inordinate behaviour which was especially disturbing when we were contacted either very late at night (10:30 PM they yelled in front of the house) or early morning (7AM on Sunday).
After we requested to speak to YVHR owner, we received additional rude letters from the property manager claiming YVHR owner was not the real owner, that she was aware of our dissatisfaction and simply she did not care. Short and sweet and all in writing....
When we returned home, we left the house in perfect condition and we left requested money for cleaning.
I have since received correspondence from YVHR "american owner" with a written apology. Too little, too late. I did not let any of this ruin my time spent in Progresso. But I offer it as a simple warning that if you do choose to rent from this group, you do so with an open and aware mind - Yucatan Vacation Home Rentals -YVHR is not american run business so lower your expectations accordingly. You will end up paying "gringo price" for horrible experience. Photos available upon request.
