About Michael Birrane

We fell in love with Puerto Aventuras as it is such a warm friendly community, so close to the beach and beautifully maintained. Locals here call it the village which gives the perfect impression of this compact holiday vibe on the beach and marine location. It has all of the safety of a resort with security, yet the privacy of having your own villa.

Michael Birrane purchased this villa in 2014

Why Michael Birrane chose Puerto Aventuras

The street is one of the best in the town as it's just one street back from the ocean.

A multi cultural community and so close to the beach it felt right!

We Love Casa Mayo and I'm sure you will too. Everything you could need is provided and we are always at hand to help with anything.

What makes this villa unique

Solar powered in part so we can offer air con throughout. We love enjoying the wildlife, watching the Yucatan blue Jay birds flying by, hearing the birds in the morning or enjoying the peace and quiet at night as you sit under the palapa and star gaze, sipping margaritas. Hop, skip and a jump from the beach.

Golf carts are a unique way to get around the village and cool you down on a hot day.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Ticked all my boxes! My list included, being close to restaurants/bars, close to beach, good beds were a must, air conditioning ( as it was Summer!) in the living area as well as bedrooms and large pool. It was exactly as described and we got a bonus golf cart too. We are a very private family so we really appreciated not having house staff roaming around ( some people like it but not us) but Michael checked in almost every day and was very friendly and there when and if we had any questions. The house had maid service included 3 times per week, so everything was kept neat and tidy. We also had a dishwasher and use of washer and dryer which was perfect for us as we are used to being more independent. Overall a great experience!

Amazing Villa, Great location, Fantastic Vacation, Highly recommeded!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Casa Mayo for 2 weeks. Villa is spacious, immaculate, fully equipped, air con, 4 bedrooms, free Wi-Fi, huge flat screen TV, everything we wanted. We loved cooking steaks and shrimps on the BBQ. Enjoyed our morning coffees on the balcony. Villa has an outdoor dining area under the shade of the palapa. There is also an outside comfortable lounge area near the pool, lovely for sipping margaritas in the evening! The pool is a decent size and my children really enjoyed it. I preferred lazing on the sun loungers! Villa in a great location, with shops and restaurants nearby. My favourites Xenote, Paco Taco and Dos Chili's, all good value and good food - but im a huge guacamole and chilli fan! You can take the local collectivo (bus) for a few pesos and have a day trip to Playa Del Carmen, 24km away. Great shopping on 5th Avenue and try restaurant Alux, in a cave! A must is to visit the local Cenotes, totally amazing experience. The little fish nibble your feet - natural pedicure! Lovely to swim or snorkel in the cool crystal clear waters. We also visited the ruins in Tulum and Chichen Itza was spectacular. A 10 minute walk from Villa is the beach at Omni, beautiful azure seas and fine golden sands, wonderful! Another great experience was swimming with dolphins in the Riviera Maya only 10 mins from villa. My hubby enjoyed a few rounds of golf only 2 minutes away. Loved the whole Mexican experience, the people, palm trees, tequila, sun, sea, sand and Cenotes! We all had the best holiday. We couldn't have been happier with our Casa Mayo and highly recommend this villa to get a real taste of Mexican life.

Relaxing holiday in a Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa for some extended family that were visiting the area and the villa did not disappoint! The pool was a great size and the new lounging seating area that was just put in place before we arrived ( the owner told us) was an added bonus. We spent almost all of our time either outside or touring around the area, going to cenotes, ruins and gift shopping! We didn't cook much as we do that a lot at home, but we went to all most all of the restaurants in Puerto Aventuras and sampled the local cuisine. The free golf cart was great, saved us walking in the heat and it's fun!

All in all a great experience and I would definitely go back!

Perfect Villa & Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I've read the previous reviews and all positive feedback on the villa and Michael/Martina are completely accurate. They are wonderful, genuine people who were very easy to deal with. Whenever booking through VRBO, there is sometimes apprehension, but I can tell you there shouldn't be with these kind people. The villa was beautiful and it's very clear that Michael & Martina take great pride in their properties. We are very familiar with Puerto Aventuras and felt this was another great property for us to come back to when it was time to enjoy some sun.

The house is beautiful and has everything you could want, the bedroom were spacious and had beautiful en-suites with full big open closets. The pictures posted, although nice, don't do this villa any justice. The house is fully equipped with beautiful lighting, iPads, large flat screen TVs, wifi, wireless speakers at the pool area, etc.

If you're not familiar with the Puerto Aventuras area, get familiar. It's beautiful and this villa is the place to stay while you relax and enjoy a vacation in the sun.

Puerto Aventuras - Casa de Mayo

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent two weeks in this BEAUTIFUL brand new villa! The villa is totally equipped with everything, bluetooth music, satellite, pool. This community is so safe and friendly. We did not rent a car but we were close enough to walk everywhere and taxi to Playa Del Carmen. We would highly recommend the dolphin experience, the staff there is excellent, and we spent alot of time with the dolphns. We also spent two days deep sea fishing with Captain Rick. His crews were very professional and friendly as well. The beach was awesome, not even a five minute walk away from the villa. We vacationed with our three kids, 19, 16 and 12 and they were very content and had lots of fun! There is lots of wildlife around to keep them occupied as well, agoutis, raccoons, spider monkeys, lizards :)

Martina and Michael came to our rescue after we had problems with our first rental. Martina called us immediately and arranged for us to book their villa during the holidays. They even stocked the house with our first days food as we arrived later in the day and made us guacamole when we arrived (Thanks Michael!). They were so helpful with anything that we needed and we want them to come to Canada and visit us!

We would recommend this property for anyone really, there is plenty of room with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and the kitchen is great to cook in! lots to do, lots of fun in the sun!

Thanks Martina and Michael!
