“Birth of a golfer villa” was how Google Translate communicated this story today.
Villas and California-style houses and the U.S. Gulf coast, the resort’s Yucatan Country Club is launching a new development called “Serena,” with the attraction to enjoy a golf course at attractive prices.
The new complex is to be built on 5 hectares, will include homes, villas and “town houses,” and a social area with multipurpose hall, swimming pool and a “mini beach” with a slope to wading pool, playground and a field paddle tennis, complemented with parking and restrooms.
Another attraction is that the Country more accessible, as there are villas from $ 2.4 million pesos, which can be purchased with a down payment of 20% at 24 months and the balance can be financed up to 30 years.
I haven’t visited these gated communities yet and have no interest. I’m not just moving to Yucatan for economic reasons. I’m also looking for something resembling city living. Not to be isolated by a fairway in exchange for brandy-newy “villas.”
Sometimes “House Hunters International” drags its subjects through these resorts, which always look sort of abandoned. They’re sprawling ghost towns, soulless and sad.
But what a contrast with the Gringo Gulch, so crowded, crumbling and loud. But such character! Yes, I want to be part of the Centro, even if so many Yucatecans basically don’t. I know I’m having a bad day when these developments look tempting. I take two aspirin and the notion goes away.
