Mahahual villa description

The Taj Majahual, a private luxury residence, is situated in one of the world’s most unspoiled beach locations on México’s beautiful Yucatán Peninsula in the eastern state of Quintana Roo.

It is located in the intimate community of Placer, where sky and sea merge, and soft creamy sand is kissed by the ebb of sparkling clear aqua-colored water. This romantically remote residence caters to those who wish to ‘hammock’ and beachcomb their days in paradise.

For those who seek an active agenda, a world-class coral reef is located very close to shore, and the Taj Majahual is 20 minutes from Mahahual, and Cancún is a 4-hour drive. Both offer a myriad of maritime and tropical adventures, as well as shopping, dining, and sight-seeing

                      Taj Majahual is a secluded beach residence that is hundreds of yards from its nearest neighbor, on an uncrowded beach. Days will go by with no one but the local fisherman walking by.

                      While secluded, the property is secured by being fully fenced, having two four legged security guards, and a full time onsite American caretaker. He lives in a casita that is removed from the main house.

                      The beach is in a bay that is protected by a barrier reef, so the surf is minimal. Snorkeling is available right off the beach, with world class snorkeling about 1/2 mile away.

                      From the west side of the house you can see a large lagoon,jungle, and sunsets over the lagoon. From the east side, the ocean, beach, and sunrises.

                      There is a restaurant a short walk up the beach. Restaurants, bars, and shopping are in the town of Mahahual (Costa Maya Port) about 20 kilometers away.

                      One guest described the property well- 'It's like arriving on a deserted island that happens to have a 5 star hotel'.

                      Other Activities: While not actually an activity, one unique event is the local fishermen coming up to the front gate almost every afternoon with whatever they have just speared
