Mahahual villa description

Casa Que Canta (House that Sings) is a Spanish style villa with a central courtyard and 2nd level terrace facing the ocean. The villa is a duplex home (two complete homes) with a total of 4 bedrooms and the cost of the rental varies with the number of bedrooms required for your group - they may be rented individually or in combination for up to 14 adults. The bedrooms are all on the 2nd level - each has a terrace. Two have king beds, two have queens and twins, and the living room couches - 4 total - can sleep 4 more adults. We also offer on site all inclusive meals at an added cost per person. Sandra is an excellent chef and has always gotten high praise from our guests. The villa is a located 5 miles north of Mahahual Mexico. The beaches are white sand with a coral reef just 250 yards off shore. Ideal for swimming and sun bathing. Area is know for world class snorkeling and diving. Reef in front of the property has a number of beautiful corral heads. Snorkeling & dive trips also available in nearby Mahahual. There are many restaurants, fun shops, & great Mayan ruins near by. If you like to fish we have onsite boats and charters with the best guides on the coast. Try fly fishing for Bonefish or Tarpon or go off shore for Barracuda and Grouper. Fishing is consistently good.

Things to do at Casa Que Canta: The area is rich in Mayan culture and history. Nearby ruins of Chacchoben are a must visit along with Kohonlich and Dzibenache if you have time. Lake Bacalar and the old Spanish fort also make a great day trip. The area is also rich in Cennotes some of which are almost too beautiful to describe. Hidden Worlds Cenote has been featured on a National Geographic special. Bone fishing, Tarpon fishing, and Permit are all available in the area - we are told it is a world class location for these top three fly fishing species.
Majahual itself is a fast growing Mexican fishing village with many good restaurants and nice shops. Very busy on cruise ship days, but extremely quiet in between. Beaches are wonderful. A recent new attraction is a Jungle Zip line tour just outside of Bacalar (one hour away). We have done this with friends and it is a great family excursion. The tour is extremely safe and suitable for both adults and children.

Water Sports: Traveling to Mexico for many is all about the Ocean and the beach. The Costa Maya is blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico - almost all of them protected by the worlds 2nd largest barrier reef. The reef at Casa Que Canta is only 200 meters off shore. This means the swimming is exceptional - no currents - no rip tides - extremely safe even for small children. The waves are very light and the depth drops off slowly - you can walk out 100 meters and still be wait high. The reef provides great snorkeling - tons of corral - fish - even an occasional lobster is you watch closely. The nearby fisherman go out almost everyday and can provide fresh fish for use on the grill. Or if you like bring a spear gun and try getting your own.
Snorkeling from the kayaks we have is great on the calmer days and very safe.

Bonefishing and Offshore fishing charters: We recently added on site fishing charters with a top area guide - Carlos Cartillos - for both fly fishing and off shore fishing. These charters are all inclusive and include boat, captain, fishing equipment, licenses, bait, and for all day charters lunch with refreshments. The Coasta Maya is famous for its fishing - particularly Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon. If you are interested in an all inclusive fishing vacation please email us for details and rates. The all inclusive packages include pickup and return to Cancun airport, all your meals, all your drinks, accommadations, and of course fishing each day either in the Lakes, the Bay of Chetumal, or off-shore.

Carlos is an excellent guide and has been written up several times in U.S. fishing magazines.

                                    My 12 person family stayed May/2009. What a perfect place for a beach get-away. First the villa is perfect for a big family gathering, lots of space with big bathrooms/ bedrooms and a well supplied kitchen. Plenty of places to be in or out of the sun and be near the water. The villa is spotlessly clean and a very thoughtful layout. The beds are perfectly comfortable with nice linens. Joe, the owner is very responsive to your needs and concerns. The beach is great with a modest reef 250 yards of shore. We snorkled their often both with the kayak and just taking a nice swim out. You can walk the beach north for miles. I don't think we saw 5 people any where on the beach the entire week. All the pictures on this web site are accurate and not over stated. My dealings with Joe and Maureen, the owners, Santiago and Esther, the caretakes, were easy and honest. I would stay again and have it on my list for a future vacation.

                                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet owners.

                                    Owner response: Thanks for the very kind words. We think that Casa Que Canta is an exception place to stay for both adults and families with children. Those looking for a secluded, quiet, and relaxing vacation on the beach have never been disappointed with our villa. For less then the price of a hotel a family can have their own home right on the beach and a truly memorable vacation. Glad yours was one of those.

                                    We spent 11 days at this beautiful villa near Mahahaul. It was a very nice time and we enjoyed every day. We used extensively the free canoes and went snorkeling along the reef. You have to search a little until you find the best spot for snorkeling. The most fish you will find next to the bigger rocks. Just look where the waves are breaking. Sandra and Emanuel are the caretaker of this property. They are cleaning the beach and the villa every day and if you book it Sandra will cook for you. The fishing was excellent and we caught some nice Tarpoons during our stay. There is a lot of things you can do in this Area. We recommend rent a car, because you are very flexible.

                                    Beautiful villa with great views and great service. The 2 caretakers are the best. They make the best food and will show you around the local sites if you need a guide. Mahahual is a 5-10min drive away and you can be in the middle of the action or you can take it easy at the house. Pool on the roof was one of my favorite places to relax. Great Honeymoon and I would recommend to anyone. Make sure you have a rental car-

                                    My wife, daughter of 10 and I stayed at Casa Que Canta for a week in November 2012. We can't say enough about our great experience. The Casa is very spacious and stylish. One of the nicest places we've stayed in our extensive travels along the riviera maya. What really shown through for us was how wonderful Joe and his staff Emanuel and Sandra were. Everyone was so friendly and treated us as family. We opted for the "meal plan". Sandra and Manuel prepared all our meals. I recommend the meal plan but one should be prepared to come away with a few extra pounds at the end of the trip. The food was great. Adventures can easily be arranged by Joe. Eco tours, fishing, etc. My wife and daughter enjoyed a message on the beach one day. My family really enjoyed visiting with the staff (even those of the four legged variety!). We explored some great beaches on our own and enjoyed visiting the town of Mahahual a short drive away. If down time is more your thing than this is the spot. There is a nice beach palapa and longers and plenty of quite areas on the multiple verandas where you can challenge Joe to a game of chess or enjoy a good book. Joe arranged 5 days of guided fly fishing for me and I must say that the bonefishing was some of the best I have experienced in the Yucatan. Carlos is an english and spanish speaking guide who really loves walking the flats for bonefish. Thanks to our new friends for a wonderful trip and we hope to return The von Heideken family Bend Oregon USA

                                    My husband and I stayed for 8 nights at this beautiful villa. The owners Joe and Maureen are great people and I even went diving one day with Joe and the diving was great. My husband loves lobster so we arranged for some fresh lobster dinners (4) out of 8 nights. The caretakers Emanuel and Sandra cooked our meals for us and they were great!! It is so nice to just stay at the villa and have your meals prepared for you, so you can just sit there and enjoy the place and view. Emanuel and Sandra are so nice and I enjoyed trying to communicate with them as I know little Spanish and they know little English so we taught each other. They always kept the place clean, but were never in your way. We enjoyed having a lady who the owner Joe recommended come out and give us a massage right there on the beach at the villa. One of the best massages I have ever had. We did go into town twice to see the town. Everyone in town was so friendly. We own a condo in Playa del Carmen and it is a different atmosphere with more action, My husband says that people come to Playa del Carmen to slow down, but people come to Mahahual to stop. What a nice place thank you again for sharing your beautiful place and thank you to Emanuel and Sandra for their wonderful and friendly service. I want to return and this time maybe I will get to dive CHINCHORRO BANKS and other great dives.

                                    Best holidays ever! Thank you Maureen and Joe for being such wonderful hosts. The Villa is beautiful, comfortable and impeccable. We enjoyed the great snorkeling and the exciting experience of fishing our own lobsters for dinner. It was lovely waking up to spectacular sunrises and we had the most relaxing beach walks. Thank you :)

                                    We wanted a quiet vacation on the beach in Mexico where we could relax and be away from huge crowds of people. Casa Que Canta provided this and more. The town of Mahahual is so much different than Cancun - small - laid back - slow paced - with beautiful beaches and great restaurants. Our home for 10 days was 10 minutes out of town on a secluded section of beach with great swimming and snorkeling. We actually caught our own lobsters with the help of the owners. The reef out front was an easy swim and had tons of beautiful fish. We visited several near by ruins on the advice of Joe and Maureen -the owners - and had the place all to ourselves. The villa was spacious - felt more like a home than a rental - and we were treated like family. My girl friend particularly like the small aviary in the courtyard full of Parakeets and finches. We will definitely be back again.

                                    This was a very relaxing vacation. The villa is beautiful, accomodations wonderful. A terrific place to relax and unwind from the hussle and bussle of a busy working life. The snorkeling near the reef, a nice swim to it, was fabulous. Very colorful and diverse fish, rays, lobster, etc. The palapa near the beach was a place to enjoy lunch and a cocktail! The beach was cleaned up every morning so the sand was pristine. The rooftop pool was a nice place to take a final swim at the end of the day. The interior was wonderfully decorated and feels like home. Joe and Maureen were very helpful in recommending things to do. Hope to come back soon.

                                    From the moment we arrived at Casa Que Canta until the day we left we couldn't have been more pleased. The villa itself and the surrounding garden areas are actually much nicer than the photos on the web site. We were greeted by Emanuel and Sandra the caretakers. Over the next week they went our of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The villa is large - the four of us had tons of space. We particularly enjoyed the small roof top pool on sunny days. Great place to cool down - sun bathe - or read a book. Joe and Maureen - the owners - were extremely helpful in providing information on things to do in the area. Mahahual itself is small and fun town with lots of nice restaurants and shops. Only seems to be crowded on cruise ship days - other than that we had the town to ourselves. For two couples looking for a secluded, quiet, and relaxing vacation you could not do better than staying here.

                                    Nothing in the description said- VERY BAD snorkeling, Dogs barking all night, dogs attacking during the day(one must take a big stick along on your walk down the beach to fend off the dogs) no equipment was as described and,BTW, bad snorkeling means - NO FISH,NO PLANT LIFE(I took a picture underwater of 1 REALLY boring starfish), or ANYTHING AS DESCRIBED BY OWNERS("scooter"- Oh, we forgot to tell you...) Is a very pretty place to stay(housekeeping staff was an extended family, ready to do anything for you including cooking for you) but, another thing is, be ready to wear shoes even to go up for a pee break, because the walkway and stairs are so rough you NEED shoes., and it's really strange that if you are in the living area, or kitchen, you have to go OUTSIDE, to a restroom...either on the same level, or to go up stairs. We will assume that some kind of privacy curtains have been installed between the units so that one could actually be comfortable(dress how they want or not!) in their "bedroom" clothes, and not have to worry about who is seeing them! When on vacation, you shouldn't have to feel that you have to "dress up" to lay around and watch tv or read.... To put it bluntly- 3 star place for 5 star price for which we would be willing to pay a 1 star bill(we won't be back-ever)

                                    Owner response: After many years of getting 4 and 5 Star reviews we are of course quite disappointed to have guests rate us so poorly. If you look at all the other reviews you get a completely different impression. There are neighbors that have dogs in the area - very common in Mexico - and they will bark when strangers are in the area. Barking all night however is not the case. As to the snorkeling, the Costa Maya area including our villa is rated as some of the best snorkeling in Mexico. You do have to get to the reef itself to see the corral and fish. If you snorkel in the grass inside the reef of course you won't see much. The reef is close with tons of fish if you just swim to it. In regard to the stairways - they are lightly roughened concrete. Being on the beach everyone tends to have wet feet a lot and a textured surface is far safer to walk on then smooth tile. The villa also has a total of 5 bathrooms - just none with direct access to the kitchen and living room areas - a plus to most guests. There are also curtains on the sliding doors between the villas - they were added in March based on this guests comment. We go out of our way to provide all our guests a pleasant, safe, and enjoyable vacation and regret this couple was not satisfied. We however feel strongly that the other reviews given by visitors are far more reflective of what Casa Que Canta has to offer than this particular review.

                                  About the owner: Maureen and I retired to Mexico in 2009. We choose Mahahual because of the great beaches, laid back life style, and great diving. The town is safe, quiet, and a great place to vacation or retire. The weather is nearly perfect your round - 70's at night - 80's by day. Warmest months are early Fall when the temps are 5-8 degrees higher and the breezes die down.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Mahahual:
                                  Casa Que Canta is just north of Mahahual on great beach. It is about as close to town as one can get and yet still have a secluded home on a private beach. We consistently are one of the highest rated properties in the area by our guests. In addition, our caretakers have been with us for 3 years and provide an exceptional level of service.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                  You will be vacationing in a home - not a hotel room. Maureen and I furnished the entire villa not as a rental, but as a home we would live in. Guest are always amazed at the level of detail and quality of the furnishings. As a result we get a lot of repeat visitors and are often booked early in the year for key dates.
