Property description

100.00 Per night for Two People. 4 night minimum! Write for addional cost for extra people.
Right now, scroll to the big photos on the bottom of the page to really see the house!

Since Late 2014 there has been a large influx of Sargasso on the beaches of Mahahual (and most beaches on the East side of Mexico) There is no way for we mere mortals to control this. So we can promise you the sweet house, we just cannot promise you the pristine beach pictured (Photos on request!) We do our best to keep up but there are days it is futile.


You will not find a lower price or better deal on a private home on the beach during the summer. This is the perfect house for some people and the wrong house for others. If you are unsure, we will send you a questionnaire and we can decide together!

Casita Dragonfly is one of the few affordable single-family homes for rent in the Mahahual area. 11 kilometers south of Mahahual central, you find Casita Dragonfly. Our sweet casita Offering two bedrooms with Queen Bed with additional fold out Futon Upstairs, Queen Bed Downstairs and two bathrooms on a property that you will enjoy all to yourself. This is not a resort, or a duplex or a complex. It’s your very own beachfront slice of the Mexican caribe! Please see links below for tons of photos of the house, beach and area! Ask for google map location! Ask us anything!

Only one house next door, with caretakers house in between, plus one house a few lots to the north this is a peaceful parcel of paradise, which will not only serve a family of up to four, but is a perfect romantic getaway for two.

Downstairs you find a living room, dining room, bedroom and spacious kitchen plus immediate access to the large shaded beachfront Palapa porch with seating for dining for 4, and loungers for six--on beach or palapa plus hammock in the shade and the almost constant breeze and thesands of the Costa Maya. Upstairs, accessed by an exterior staircase is a cozy master bedroom with a spectacular view on three sides plus a roomy ocean view terrace with outdoor sunbed and small complete bathroom plus attached screened palapa with hanging bed for day dreaming, reading or just lounging.

Experience sunrise with a cup of French press coffee, (as the house sustains itself with SOLAR POWER ONLY electric coffee maker, microwave, toaster, toaster oven or any heat producing electronics and they are prohibited in the home--please do not bring your own..even hair dryers are expressly forbidden)the ocean breeze will dry your hair and-using high wattage items will leave you with no power and us with a very expensive solar system to replace. Bring your lap top to stay in touch with the world if you'd like, through our satellite internet system.

The reef protected waters offer a SPECTACULAR snorkeling experience out to the reef on our two kayaks. Although the water in front of the Casita is usually nice enough to float in and cool off in you will often this year 2015 find sargasso--- a healthy part (but annoying to swimmers and beach walkers ) of the reef system. most often though, its easy to swim or kayak over but it's not pretty
We suggest bringing your own snorkel gear for a perfect fit.

Standing Fans, Bedfans, and an almost constant ocean breeze keep you more than comfortable on all but the hottest of days. If you are sensitive to the tropical heat and humidity we do NOT recommend our home, as we are almost at one with nature, with no means to supply air conditioning if the wind stops. It's rare, but it does happen and we cannot predict when. All windows and doors are screened negating the need for mosquito nets in the evening, but we offer them as they offer an extra layer of protection and they are so pretty! If you find you are warm outside, enjoy our outdoor shower, cool and refreshing! Please though, do remember to help us conserve water, one of our most precious commodities. Conserve, conserve conserve!!!!

Six miles to Mahahual via either the beach road or the very close access 'new' road you will find restaurants, tiendas, wonderful beachside palapas for a fabulous breakfast, lunch, dinner or refrescas. We are happy to give recommendations. Mahahual and her people are friendly, helpful and geared towards you having an unforgettable vacation.
So are we.

This is really not a party house--it needs to rest over night too! We have few neighbors, but sound does travel and we hope that you would respect other families and other's vacations, and although we have plenty of solar power the system can be ruined by leaving everything on all night.

If you are sensitive to the heat or live for loud late nights, party scenes and pampered luxury, this is not the house! Maybe not the town for you. We are unpretentious, but with everything you need for a short or long getaway! The longer you stay the more acclimated you get!
Perfect for those looking for clean comfy creature comforts, but off the beaten path!
Adventurers Welcome! We always have a clean and well equipped house, but we cannot control the weather nor the tides or new influx of sargasso.
Those who do not fear Blue Crabs, beach crabs,, Iguanas and DO remember to use insect repellent in the summer l have an unforgettable vacation!

Please see our guest comments---which speak for themselves!

Please know the summer months are best for the ADVENTROUS seasoned traveler only. Write for details. Not recommend for children or the elderly or infirm or the weak or whiney :) in the hotter more humid summer months. However the ocean is warmer and that's a nice trade off. Taxes included. As Low as 100.00 USD per night for last minute bookings made within 30 days. Restrictions apply.
Even One or two people at discounted rates have access to the entire house, Nothing is every closed off to guests. You always have the house to yourself.
Restrictions apply.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We fell in love with Mahahual within 5 minutes of discovering it. 3 months later we found this home and it became ours! That was 2007 and we still feel the same way. It's not for everyone, but there is something magical about Mahahual. If you are and adventurer at heart or life (or just need a quite place to read a book) this might be the place for you

Why the Owner Chose Mahahual:
We were looking for an area almost untouched by man, so far this is the place. the last truly unincorported area on the East Side of the Yucatan. Yes there is a town, but it's 6 miles away. There you can get almost everything you need for a vacation (except electronics) but at the house, you are on your own little piece of paradise. Powered by the sun, quenched by the rain, you decide what you want to do or not. We bought this house for ourselves, simple, sweet and right on the sand. We bought because it's not Cancun, it's not Puerto Vallerta, it's not Cabo. We've been to all and were taken in by Mahahual immediately. Quiet. Just you and nature.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best of Mexico's tropical climate and ambiance, but with nice comfy bedding! If you've stayed in Mexico a lot, you know how this is appreciated!! You'll see few people if you choose. You'll be awakened by the sunrise and you won't mind. If you do, bring an eyemask! Sunrises are beautiful, the ocean breezes which are usually plentiful will be your best friend. The palapa porch, unique to the ara ..in addition to a sunbed and screened lounging patio room upstairs with a hanging bed!
