  • Magical Beach House in Paradise

    "My husband and I rented Casa Costa Cristal for 4 nights in August 2014. The beach house is beautiful and the town of Mahahual is a welcome change from the busy over-developed tourist resorts in Mexico. We enjoyed our stay so much that we wanted to extended for a few more days, but unfortunately the house was rented. We live in Puerto Aventuras (near Playa Del Carmen) so it was about 3 hours drive on the Highway. Mary, the owner, gave us excellent directions and always answered my e-mails promptly and very friendly. Moises and his family seem very nice and they are taking very good care of the property. The house was spotless when we arrived. They were very kind and gave us some milk the first morning as we had forgotten to buy it. The property is beautifully designed and the location is ideal. The ocean breeze is delightful and we loved the privacy of the beach. It was wonderful being able to walk a few feet from the house and be in the stunning Caribbean Ocean. We brought our mountain bikes and the beach road was great for cycling into town. It took about 50 minutes and we enjoyed the scenery along the way. Mahahual town is also very bike friendly. There were no cruise ships in whilst we were there so the town was very quiet. There were some restaurants open but not many people around. We were very glad we chose to rent a beach home rather than stay in a hotel in town. Our visit was during ''rainy season’’ but we only had one stormy day, however this didn’t stop us from taking a dip in the ocean, and the lightening was very exciting to watch. The house is fully equipped with everything you need and the master bed is incredibly comfortable, something quite rare in Mexico! Internet connection was great. We didn’t use the TV but Sky channels were available. We can’t wait to return to Casa Costa Cristal and experience the magic again."

  • Diving adventure in a secluded place

    "We spend two weeks at Casita Dragonfly, our vacation was great. I didn’t write a review sooner because I was busy booking dragonfly again, I wasn’t even home for a week and we decided to go back for more. The place is wonderful is what we were looking for. We really enjoyed it. We made friends with the neighbors next door and we dove with them a few times. The house has everything you need to enjoy for your stay and yes is in between the mangrove and the ocean and 11 kms away from Mahahual in the outdoors expect whatever comes with a tropical environment, from toads to lizards, geckos and iguanas. Small bugs, big bugs, crabs, and birds. Here you won’t see any deer, moose or bears. So its different ………very pretty and relaxing!!! About the furry companions? My boys wanted to take brandy back with us, he hung out with us all the time, guero came at dinner time was like being at home, they came with us for a long beach walks. Very nice dogs. Us being divers I will target my review towards that side, first the beach! Is a nice open shallow beach with white sand, the portion at the house is clean of native plants, and collects sea grass from the waves at night. There are patchy areas of sand but most of the bottom is sea grass all the way to the reef which is located around 600/700 mts from the beach, the best way to get there is with the kayaks, the average depth is 10-15 feet all the way to the reef which pretty much comes out of the surface. There are many isolated heads of coral formations, very nice snorkeling experience but also very good to do some scuba at very shallow depth giving you plenty of time to observe the reef. Just make sure you bring the anchor with the kayaks and don loose them. We didn’t go to the side beyond the reef barrier so not sure about diving but snorkeling will be a challenge with the waves breaking over the reef. We connected with Gypsea Divers, and we had to drive every time to the diving shop , something that we enjoy going to town. Catherine went beyond expectations for us to enjoy our dives , excellent reefs and nobody around, so we were a group or four with nobody else to share the dives, we did ten plus dives and we went to many different locations. If you are a diver the recipe is Mahaual + Casita dragonfly + Gypsea Divers = awesome diving trip!!……so we will be back to Dragonfly for more underwater adventures in January. Thank you W for sharing your House and allowing us to enjoy that piece of paradise. J"

  • Sweeter than Sugar

    "My wife, three kids and I stayed at Casa Azucar in July 2014. The house was perfect. We had the beach to ourselves for all four days! This beach was gorgeous. We snorkled, shell hunted and relaxed in the cooling breezes of the Caribbean. Marcia was a great help. She drew a map of town indicating where we could find all of our provisions for some excellent meals. We took an hour drive to Chaccobean to visit this ancient site. We were the only ones there for over two hours, truly magical. I would reccomend this house to anyone looking for a perfect getaway. I just wish I was still there."

  • Tranquil Paradise

    "The coastal town of Mahahaul has grown over the past couple of years from an isolated wide spot in the road to a quaint village with excellent beaches, hotels, restaurants and skin/scuba diving. Plenty to do but not overrun with tourists and at a fraction of the cost of Cancun/Playa del Carmen. Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas puts you within 10 minutes of the town yet offers a serene and tranquil respite from civilization if you just want to lie on the beach and read. The property itself is beautiful and well-maintained by the friendly and responsive caretaker. The house offers three levels of terraces and balconies from which one can see the ocean and enjoy the soothing sound of the surf. The main level offers ample living space and the upstairs bedrooms are large and well-appointed. (Caution: The narrow spiral staircase presents a challenge for larger bodies. I'm 6'4", weigh 250 lbs, and made it without difficulty, albeit slowly and ducking to avoid kabonging my head. It terrified our Labrador.) The kitchen offers only two burners, no stove, but the two outside grills compensate. In short, it's a wonderful place, we (two adults, 14 year old daughter) enjoyed ourselves tremendously, will return and can recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy the Mexican Riviera without Cancun's congestion, loud bars and high prices."
