About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Casa de Azucar (House of Sugar) is a brand new house right on the beach in Rio Indio/Majahual. The house is set up perfectly for a family to stay on their own private beach. The 2nd floor has a master suite and a bunk bed room. So a family can all stay on the 2nd floor with the kitchen and a great deck to eat breakfast or dinner as you take in the view of the ocean. If you have more people in your party, the house has 2 additional bedrooms on the ground level each with their own queen bed, with private access to the beach. The house is ideal for 1 or 2 families to enjoy a Mexico beach vacation.

The beach house is a private home located 6 miles north of Majahual – considered the number one cruise ship destination in Mexico during 2007.

The beaches are powder white sand protected by a coral reef just 250 yards off shore. Ideal for swimming and sun bathing. Area is known for world class snorkeling and diving. The reef in front of the property has a large number of beautiful coral heads if you take the time to find them. Snorkeling and dive trips also available in nearby Majahual. Many restaurants and shops are available with more every day. Diving and fishing tours are available.

The home itself is fully self contained with solar electric, gas stove and hot water. Drinking water is bottled and supplied with the house. The house includes maid service and linens. This is a new privately owned house available for the 1st time in the winter of 2010-11. The interior consists of a lovely open contemporary Mexican design with festive tile and native wood throughout the home. In addition, a roof top deck with 360 degrees views of the ocean and lagoons. There is no better place to watch the sunrise or sunset with coffee or a cocktail in hand.

You will find the perfect combination of activities native to the land with the relaxation of your own private home and beach. Great for families or a few families to spend time together on the beach. Please feel free to email or call me with any questions about the property. Also make sure that you check out the photos - the place is visually stunning.

About Aaron Evans

The Evans Family lives in Denver, Colorado and were married in Playa Del Carmen in 2001. We have always loved Mexico and are finally proud to share our own private beach house with other people.

Aaron Evans purchased this house in 2009

Why Aaron Evans chose Quintana Roo

We have always wanted a beautiful and remote beach house in Mexico. This house allows us all of the privacy we could ever want, with a growing and vibrant city less than 10 miles away. This part of Mexico is truly untouched and will amaze anyone who sees it.

What makes this house unique

You will be in a remote location where your family and your family alone can enjoy your own private beach, snorkel right off the beach, fish the ocean or the lagoon behind the house.

Beautiful home with a few things to be aware of

  • 3 of 5

We were two families of four (4 adults/4 kiddos) and this house fit us beautifully. The house is lovely and spacious - love the tile work throughout. Love the fact that it was off the grid, remote and ran mainly on solar power. The generator did get turned on early on our first morning and that was loud enough to wake us but we asked the manager to delay the recharge of the batteries until a bit later and he was great about accommodating that so it didn't interrupt our sleep for the remainder of our stay. We did a good job conserving energy so the generator didn't need to go on do to lack of power but the need for the generator to be on more (therefore being noisy) could be an issue for those not a aware of their energy consumption. The rooftop porch was spectacular - breathtaking really. The room with the bunk beds is by far the warmest in the house with far less breeze coming through so we were mainly forced to utilized the other rooms. The house gets a wonderful breeze but it certainly did get warm (we visited in July so of course it did). Overall we didn't feel like the lack of AC was a major issue except when the thunder storms rolled through forcing us to shut up the house so the rain wouldn't come in. Speaking of rain- it is important to know that with the heavy rain comes scorpions. Our first night several found their way in which was a little concerning with young kids getting up at night to use the bathroom. But after speaking with the manager and understanding they try to get out of the rain we blocked the doorways with towels and didn't seem to have any other issues. Additionally, the manager was able to educate us more about them relieving some of the concern but it is certainly a possibility that they will get in so awareness is key. We were taken a bit back by the enormous amount of trash that was washed up on the beach as we didn't expect that. We expected more pristine beaches so that was very disappointing. Granted that has nothing to do with the home itself per say but rather a sad indicator of the world we live in today. So if you are looking for pristine beaches then condos or hotels that groom the beach would be more up your allay. The owners were really easy to work with through the rental process and we were welcomed with a cold six pack in the fridge which was a wonderful surprise. We were able to see Manta Ray and other rays along with a variety of fish in the reef further down the beach to the north.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response Cheryl, we are sad to hear the weather did not cooperate, it can be difficult at times. Please know we always do our best to try to clean the beaches, but as you said, it is a sad state of our society when there is that much trash in our oceans. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the sunset deck and the privacy. Hopefully next time Mother Nature will cooperate more with your vacation. Thanks and Viva Mexico! Aaron

Great location for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was well worth the drive from Cancun.

We spent just over a week with a total of 8 people. The house is located about 25 mins. from Mahahual on a rough beach road. The house was perfect for our group (grandparents, kids, and grandkids). It is very spacious with fantastic views, comfy beds, and room to spread out. The beach is quiet and relaxing. There is great snorkeling a short walk up the beach and even better snorkeling a short drive up the beach (also within walking distance if you don't mind the heat). We saw corral formations and a huge puffer fish along with other sea life. There is also a great swim spot just down from the house. The only thing we missed was having hammocks - bring them if you have them. There are plenty of trees to hang them from to enjoy the ocean breeze, salt water, and beach.

Mahahual is a great little town with a totally different vibe depending on when you go. It is very tourist oriented during the day when the cruise ships are docked, but at night it becomes a local hang out. There are several good restaurants in town along the malecon and the Mayan Beach Garden up the road has phenomenal food. We also picked up pollo asado from Dona Manuela at the end of the football field that was delicious.

Note: There is a lot of plastic refuse on the beaches. It didn't detract from our stay in any way, but is certainly something to be aware of. Our kids were surprised and it has made them more conscious about conservation.

Owner's Response: Dawn, We are so glad you had a good time, we will make sure there are more hammocks next time, I mean who does not love laying in a hammock as the wind blows. Thanks for your comment about the plastic, we always use that as a learning tool for our own children, as it helps them truly see how plastic never goes away and that they (plus all of us) can all do better to use less plastic. Thanks again, Viva Mahahual! Aaron

Great house in Mahahaul!

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I went down to this beautiful house in Mahahaul for our Spring Break. The house itself is absolutely amazing. Just feet from the ocean, you can enjoy ocean kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, or just laying on the beach. The open rooftop is a great spot to enjoy drinks and watch the sun set over the lagoon which is behind the house. The house also has a porch that overlooks the ocean which is a great spot to it out and enjoy the ocean breeze.

The town of Mahahaul is perfect for all ages. It offers everything from scuba, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins and much more. By day, the town fills up with tourists from the cruise ships, but at night the town is all yours. The town has great restaurants that have all different types of food.

The housekeeper Charlie is very helpful if you need anything. Also the housekeeper Marcia lives down the road but she is a great resource for excursions outside of Mahahaul!

I highly recommend this beautiful beach house, and I can't wait until I get to go back down!!

Amazing Beachfront Home in Costa Maya!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this amazing house! We had guests with us for a total of 6 people and there was plenty of room. If you're looking for your own private beach right outside your door this is the house for you. Everyone morning we enjoyed our coffee on the beach to get our day started! The rooftop terrace is a perfect spot to see the cruise ships coming into town or the sun setting over the fresh water lake behind the house. The house is secluded and very private. A great get away from the hustle and bustle of most resort town. A short drive into Mahahual for some amazing fresh seafood that incredibly inexpensive is a have to! Don't pass up the opportunity for your very own personal beach house that is literally step to the ocean!

Amazing Mahahual Villa-

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this classic Mexican villa. The home is wonderfully decorated with a absolutely stunning rooftop view and a beach to match. Very kid friendly with gentle waves for surfing and paddle boarding, plus access to fishing on the beach flats or guided tours in the nearby lagoon/gulf for tarpon and snook. I would take my family back or go as a great buddy fishing trip. Only a 15 minute drive into a cute little beach town of Mahahual with friendly service and wonderful food. Quiet & safe.

Beautiful Casa in Mahahaul

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home by the sea. The roof top deck is incredible! We enjoyed fun afternoons and evenings in town. We also had a day of adventure exploring a lagoon and cenotes in the region. It was a great family getaway!
