  • All (almost) perfect

    "My dream come true by coming to this house/location: an entire ocean front villa with an amazing turquoise Caribbean sea all for you and your family and nobody else around. And you can get all this with a nice price The villa in fact is very nice and pretty big and as far as I saw it is the most convenient of that area, in fact basically for the same price you can get the entire villa, whereas other houses I contacted they would have given only one of the two floor. Other important thing when you go to such wild heavens, you will have the house owner that is very kind and assist you in any question you may have about house/location until you get there. Everything was very well managed: you will meet there a local house manager (who speaks a perfect English) once in Xcalak other than a caretaker (who can arrange a rustic BBQ on request if you wish). From a scale 1 to 10 I would give 8,5 to this house just because with some small cheap details the house would be perfect: for example it could be provided a tent/big umbrella on the amazing terrace with a stunning view that villa has to stay more protected from the strong sun; because only like that you may have lunch/dinner/breakfast because without some kind of cover you cannot stay more than 10 minutes with Caribbean sun on your head (unless you are not like an iguana…). Also another table and chair/bed could be put on the terrace to better enjoy it. A BBQ could complete the perfection (even though it may be arranged the rustic one by the caretaker)… Other than this small details, my vacation was perfect more than expected (except the argue with a fisherman guide who took my fishing catch, a big barracuda, after he told me he would give to me as part of the package tour paid….but this has nothing to do with house, only an advice if you decide to come to Xclalak for fishing as well, just clear up with a guide very very well this point if you go fishing, they sometimes try to be smart and keep the catch if that is going to be very good) Definitely I would recommend this house and Xcalak to whoever would like to spend sometime in a breathtaking place and experience the sensation to have an ocean front villa…Caribbean ocean not a normal one …"

  • Quiet Oasis for our Family to Explore

    "We spent five nights at Casa de Paloma and loved everyone of them. The property is very clean and cared for. The property caretakers were on hand to help with anything that we needed and very nice. The location was postcard perfect. We loved the time spent on our little beach and snorkeling right out the front door. We had the joy of swimming with numerous fish and sting ray. Our fishing/snorkeling guide Victor was fantastic and the kids hauled in so many fish that fishing was not boring. We ate at a few restaurants, bought fruit and cakes from the trucks that drive right to your door. We saw a manatee in the mangroves and birds on bird island. Lots of outdoor activities to keep you busy. A good selection of restaurants. The people are super pleasant. We thought the road to the Xcalak would be undeveloped but it was a great narrow highway the entire way and no problems at all. The house is located just outside of town so it was quiet but with easy access to town amenities. We hope to return one day soon."

  • Just what we needed!

    "My husband and I stayed at Casa Caracola for 7 nights and we absolutely loved the property. We have stayed in Xcalak several times, and this was our fist stay at Casa Caracola. This is one of the most beautiful homes on the coast. We stayed in the upstairs apartment with a full kitchen, it was more than enough room for the two of us. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked almost all of our meals in. Once we arrived, we rarely used our car and we were perfectly happy relaxing on the beautiful beach, playing volleyball, biking down the beach road, snorkeling and kayaking out to the reef. The lagoon in the back of the property is very nice, great fishing and bird viewing. We loved the tranquility of Casa Caracola. The property owners Phillipe and Giselle are wonderful hosts. The caretakers were also extremely helpful. We highly recommend this property, and plan to come back again. "merci beaucoup!""

  • Perfect get away in any which way!

    "My husband and I live in Valladolid and operate there a small b&b. We had not had the opportunity to get away in 2 years, so this was a much needed break from our routine! Even if you live in paradise you need to get away every once in a while! I was able to secure our place on a short notice and the communication with Brent, the owner, was great and fast! We were able to come down with 2 of our dogs, the other ones were taking care of by a good friend staying at our place. We have been only briefly in Xcalak in April, and were happy to stay for 4 nights now! Everything was perfect, the owner is a great guy, and this place is perfect for getting away from it all, nature lovers, ocean lovers, and everyone who appreciates sitting on the deck, looking into the wonderful ocean! It was our 14th anniversary get away and it could have not been better! Do not come if you need to be entertained, but come for the great nature, wildlife, snorkeling, kayaking, boating, manatees and manta rays! Be sure to stock up on groceries, as there are not too many places to go to for eating out, and this place is about 8 km out of town on a pretty good gravel road. It was perfect for us, as we wanted the quiet, so you need to know what you are looking for... You will be amazed by the reef and the turquoise water! Also very close to Belize, and at great XTC Dive Centre, you can book to there and to other amazing places! With a car you can do easily day trips to Chetumal, Bacalar, Calakmul, and other places! It's a place that puts a relaxed smile on your face... the house, the surroundings, and the owner! There are bikes for your use and we biked down the road with our dogs. Love to come back as soon as possible! Thank you so much for these wonderful days!"
