Isla Holbox cottage description
There is only a small handful of beachfront homes for rent on Isla Holbox, and Casa Sol y Mar is one of them. Built in 2000 it was designed by an award winning film director. Sol y Mar is the only house on the island that -because of the vast veranda that flanks the whole length of the house – is conceived to be able to live outside as comfortably as inside. This artist-designed beach house is set in a peaceful location directly on the beach (think toes in the sand), yet within easy walking distance to the main Plaza’s attractions and restaurants. The home is open and spacious with wide open views to the turquoise sea. It has eleven meters in length and nine meters in width. A nine-meter high “palapa” designed to keep the house always fresh – even in the hottest summer days - crowns the house. Inside Casa Sol y Mar are a large and comfortable bedroom, a bathroom with two separate entrances, entirely decorated with “talavera” tiles with double sink and shower, a fully equipped kitchen, and living/dining room with a futon that can accommodate two. A unique system of ten specially designed windows has been conceived to dose exactly the amount of air one chooses to cool the house. The house was recently reconstructed and updated, and is sure to please travelers who are looking for a true beach house on this tranquil island. But, of course, on Holbox the action is outside and Casa Sol y Mar is specifically designed for outside living. You’ll definitely be impressed by the ever-changing sea view from the large covered veranda, and the sunsets are always incredible. The plush tropical garden with coconut trees, banana trees, bougainvillea has also a big barbecue and a surprising exterior shower.

ReviewsWrite a review
Holbox is amazing. Casa Sol y Mar is AMAZING. Rosy the manager of the house greeted us upon arrival. She set up our travel accommodations from Cancun to the front gate of the house and back! She is so kind and is there to answer all of your questions. The house is set up with all of the necessities. We spent most of our time on the front porch enjoying the view. Bed was comfy! There is no ac units which ended up being fine. I was a bit nervous at first because I tend to run hot. But, the temperature there was perfect and we left the windows open day and night to keep the breeze moving through the house. Screens that were fully intact prevented bugs from getting in. I felt so safe there that my husband would run to the store and I would stay behind at the house. We did not worry about a thing. Of course we locked up our valuables when we left and locked the doors to the house. Locals are amazing and do not bother you. They let you be when you want it or are there to help if you ask for it. Beach is RIGHT THERE!!! Water is amazing and the temperature was perfect! I spent a whole day lounging in the hammock on the porch reading a book and napping. I then had to go buy a hammock to take home! Rosy gave us a suggestion for a tour. It was great we caught lots of fish by hand (no rods) and Tanchee the captain made us fresh ceviche on the spot. He was awesome and we had the best experience of a tour in a foreign country ever. Over all - we are going back. This time we are going to bring some friends to enjoy the island with us. If you are looking for an all inclusive, crowded beach, and Senor Frogs do not bother coming to Holbox. Shhhhh..this place is very very special and so quiet. Keep it that way!

My husband and I had the chance to spend a few nights here while delaying our return to the cold in the States. The house is right on the beach with a large private yard with outdoor grill area - the house is open and airy with a very comfortable Queen mattress. The ocean breezes and the ceiling fans were more than enough to keep us cool. The kitchen was well equipped with large appliances - including a freezer! Spending time swinging in a hammock, hung expertly by the property manager Rosi, watching the sea and the "life" of Holbox is a vacation memory that will stay with me until we get the chance to come back.
