Come enjoy a property you never share! it's not a duplex, not a complex, not a shared house! It's all yours!
Scroll ll to the big photos on the bottom of the page to really see the house! Read this description and learn a lot about the house!
Please Be adventurous and enjoy new places and things if you want to visit Casita Dragonfly. It's a wonderful house, but we know it's not for everyone!. The people who love it come back year after year!
In Late 2014 there was a large influx of Sargasso-a type of seaweed) on the beaches of Mahahual (and most beaches on the East side of Mexico and up to Texas) It is now gone on a daily basis in most areas including our beach. However, there is no way for we mere mortals to control this or predict if it might come back.'
It took everyone (even scientists) by surprise.
So for now we can promise you the sweet house, we just cannot promise you the pristine beach pictured . We do our best to keep up but there are may be a few days here (or every day--which would be a fluke) we cannot predict if or when , or if it will be futile to clean up (it weighs tons)
You will not find a better deal on a fully private home very well equipped home RIGHT on the beach during the summer/fall. This is the perfect house for some people and the wrong house for others. If you are unsure, we will send you a questionnaire and we can decide together!
Casita Dragonfly is one of the few affordable strictly single-family homes for rent in the Mahahual area.
11 kilometers south of Mahahual central (about 6 miles on an often bumpy often charming beach road) , you find Casita Dragonfly. Our sweet casita Offering two bedrooms with Queen Bed with additional fold out Futon that doubles as a great couch, Upstairs. A Queen Bed Downstairs and two bathrooms on a property that you will enjoy all to yourself. This is not a resort, or a duplex or a complex. It’s your very own beachfront slice of the Mexican caribe! Please ask us for tons of photos of the house, beach and area! Ask for google map location! Ask us anything!
Air Conditioning? no
French Press? yes (well tell you how to make coffee)
A keurig coffee maker? no.
Only one house next door, with caretakers house in between, plus one house a few lots to the north this is a peaceful parcel of paradise, which will not only serve a family of up to four, but is a perfect romantic getaway for two.
Downstairs you find a living room, dining room, bedroom and spacious kitchen plus immediate access to the large shaded beachfront Palapa porch with seating for dining for 4, and loungers for six--on beach or palapa plus hammock in the shade and the almost constant breeze and the sands of the Costa Maya.
Upstairs, accessed by an exterior staircase is a cozy breezy unique master bedroom with a spectacular view on three sides plus a roomy ocean view terrace with outdoor sunbed and small complete bathroom plus attached screened palapa with hanging bed for day dreaming, reading or just lounging. The bathroom is your own private bathroom of course, but the sectional does not go all the way to the sloped ceiling.
Experience sunrise with a cup of French press coffee, (as the house sustains itself with SOLAR POWER ONLY electric coffee makers, microwaves, toaster, toaster ovens or any heat producing electronics are prohibited in the home--please do not bring your own..even hair dryers are expressly forbidden)The ocean breeze will dry your hair and-using high wattage items will leave you with no power and us with a very expensive solar system to replace.
Bring your lap top/tablet/phone to stay in touch with the world, if you'd like, through our private and included internet .
No problems charging computers, phones, cameras etc. Got that? Yes, you can charge your computers, phones etc.
Yes, you will have power at night.
The reef protected waters offer a SPECTACULAR snorkeling experience out to the reef on our four kayaks. Although the water in front of the Casita is usually nice enough to float in and cool off in you will possibly this year find sargasso along the way--- a healthy part (but quite annoying to swimmers and beach walkers ) of the reef system. most often though, its easy to swim or kayak over but it's not pretty
We suggest bringing your own snorkel gear for a perfect fit.
Standing Fans, Bedfans, and an almost constant ocean breeze keep you more than comfortable on all but the hottest of days. If you are sensitive to the tropical heat and humidity we do NOT recommend our home, as we are almost at one with nature, with no means to supply air conditioning if the wind stops. It's rare, but it does happen and we cannot predict when. All windows and doors are screened (but you have to remember to keep the the screens closed!!! ) negating the need for mosquito nets in the evening, but we offer them as they offer an extra layer of protection and they are so pretty!
If you find you are warm outside, enjoy our outdoor shower, cool and refreshing! Please though, do remember to help us conserve water, one of our most precious commodities. Conserve, conserve conserve!!!!
Six miles to Mahahual via either the beach road which can be bumpy or the very close access 'new' road which is pretty boring you will find restaurants, tiendas, wonderful beachside palapas for a fabulous breakfast, lunch, dinner or refrescas. We are happy to give recommendations. Mahahual and her people are friendly, helpful and geared towards you having an unforgettable vacation.
So are we.
This is really not a party house--it needs to rest over night too! We have few neighbors, but sound does travel and we hope that you would respect other families and other's vacations, and although we have plenty of solar power the system can be ruined by leaving everything on all night. So sleep! Sleeep!! Nothing like falling asleep to the sounds of the waves and winds. And waking up to the amazing birds on property!
If you are sensitive to the heat/humidity or live for loud late nights, party scenes and pampered luxury, this is NOT the house! Maybe not the town for you. Although we have a bustling music scene in the winter and spring and GREAT restaurants at a fraction of what you will pay up north!
We are unpretentious, but with everything you need for a short or long getaway! The longer you stay the more acclimated you get!
Perfect for those looking for clean comfy creature comforts, but off the beaten path!
Adventurers Welcome! We always have a clean and well equipped house, but we cannot control the weather nor the tides or new influx of sargasso. Since our lovely caretakers speak no english (because they are in mexico) if you speak no spanish, please know that signing and pointing and showing is a much better way to communicate than shouting. Mexican people in the service industry are there because of their good nature and eagerness to make you happy, they will be horrified if you yell at them. Please don't.
Those who do not fear Blue Crabs, beach crabs, dogs, and Iguanas and DO remember to use insect repellent, who DONT ignore my recommendations almost always have an wonderful nacation!
Please see our guest comments---which speak for themselves!
Please know the summer months (low season) are best for the ADVENTUROUS seasoned traveler only. Write for details. Not recommended for children or the elderly or infirm or the weak or whiney :) in the hotter more humid summer months. However the ocean is warmer and that's a nice trade off.
Taxes included. As Low as 100.00 USD per night for last minute bookings made within 15 days for two people.. Restrictions apply.
Even One or two people at discounted rates have access to the entire house, Nothing is ever closed off to guests. You always have the house to yourself.
Every bed, every lounger, every hammock, every sunrise, every moonrise--all yours!
Also, if you don't like dogs or cats or kids--well, two dogs are on property with caretaker next door along with one cat, and one adorable child.
Ahhh, I wish I was there right now.
