"We just had the pleasure of staying for one week in the beautiful beachfront villa, Casa Maria, north of Mahahual. The owners, Dana and Suzanne, were always available via email for question, suggestions, and helpful tips for the area. The house itself is stunning with a very isolated, private beachfront location. My sister joined us and loved having her own upstairs bedroom with a beautiful ocean view. The home is spacious and has plenty of everything you need. Just bring all your groceries, and some condiments, with you. Claudio, the caretaker was always available for any help we needed. We went on many adventures while there: Chacchoben ruins, Bacalar Lagoon, and a great, isolated snorkeling beach one north of the house on the beach road. Mahahual is a very small fishing village that is now a cruise ship port but there were no ships in port during our stay which was perfect. We ate at NochKay at the south end of the Malecon and had the best fresh fish dinner I have ever had. Three entrees and 2 drinks each and the bill was less than $50 US. We also enjoyed a couple days on the beach at Tropicante where we got snacks and drinks served to us all day. Mahahual is great for scuba diving but it was too windy during our stay to go diving. We had dinner at Mayan Beach Garden hotel just 3 minutes north of the home. The owner, Marcia, was also helpful with ideas for snorkeling spots. One draw back, which some may consider a plus, is that the house is at least 30 minutes from Mahahual so going into town for meals took a bit longer than we had anticipated. The AC can only be run at night and the generator is so loud I hated running it for fear of disturbing Claudio. But for the beauty, views, serenity, and comfort of the home, Casa Maria can't be beat! Thank you Dana and Suzanne!"

"This house is wonderfully designed and very comfortable. It is located at one of the better beaches and conveniently close to the crossroad to the "fast road" to and from town. It runs off the grid but is state of the art so one would hardly notice.
Nice beds are hard to find in Mexico and here is where you will find one. Another rarity down here are the good quality pots and pans that accompany this well equipped kitchen. All of the rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. The caretaker is almost invisible unless you need him!
The view from the master bedroom and just about every other room is stunning! We particularly enjoyed the palapa out front.
As far as pros and cons go, the only negative we had was that there was only one hammock downstairs. I am here to tell you that the deck off of the master bedroom is begging to have 2 hammocks!...pretty minor,eh?
If staying in a luxurious house on a secluded beach is your idea of a great time then this is the spot for you!"

Amazing apartment in the heart of town right off the malecon
"My wife and I decided to try a dive trip to Mahahual and we found Richard and Rosa's apartment thru VRBO. What a great place, very secure, comfortable, clean, full kitchen, great colors, amazing rooftop lanai and between the main street and the beachfront malecon. Plus it is right above the tortilla factory which is not noisy but a wonderful cooking smell and really tasty fresh tortilla's whenever you need them! We had a great trip, loved chatting with Richard about Mexico and it all worked out wonderfully. They both took the time to help us whenever we had a question, kept us supplied in water and sundries and helped us with any questions. FYI, If you are driving to Mahahual, make sure to stop in PDC or Tulum and go grocery shopping as the stores in Mahahual are really small and very limited in selection. They have good fruit, vegetables, and basic staples but shopping for food is quite limited. It's kinda of like trying to shop all week with only a 7/11 available! But there are good restaurants there too, so you really only need breakfast and possibly lunch supplies.
We are definitely going to try and book this place again when we head back to Mahahual again. Richard, thank you again for your superior negotiation skills when we were leaving and the tour bus vs. the local taxi drivers dispute; which Richard got worked out for us after 45min of some serious discussions. Long story but good ending..."
