nice location

once we found it as there wasn't any markings on the dirt driveway off the hiway it was really nice house. Only problem we had was the fridge took 2 days to cool and only at the bottom, but there was a countertop ice maker for drinks.

Beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. It is right on the beach with gorgeous views of the Bacalar Lagoon. The inside of the house is beautiful, nice open space downstairs, good size bedrooms, one of which has an amazing view to wake up to the lagoon, along with an enormous roof top patio. Great for watching the stars.

The manager and caretakers are very helpful and generally great to deal with, always very polite and happy.They also have a nice private dock to hang out on, and lots of little extras around the house for kids, or even adults to use (fishing rods, floating devices).They even had a little FREE care package left for us when we arrived, along with some cold coronas and a bottle of wine.

My only complaints (are small, but would also make this place PERFECT! ) are to maybe include some butane for the BBQ (since its advertised) and some furniture on the roof so it can be better enjoyed. Regardless, this place is absolutely terrific!

We will be booking with them again....and we honestly cant wait! Thank you for a beautiful weekend!

Stay Here!

Just awesome

  • 5 of 5

I never expected it to be as beautiful as the pictures. But I can truly say that the pictures don't do it justice. Dave, the property manager is great and will bend over backwards to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The Air Conditioning is a nice touch!

Being able to stay at a private property to enjoy this very special lagoon is fantastic. It also gives you the ability to check out some real Mexican culture, bacalar is only a minute or 2 away and gives you many opportunities to experience it. (You may want to brush up on Spanish) this isn't your typical cancun resort, and very few people speak English, but the locals are very helpful and will usually help the best they can if you try your hand at some Spanglish!

To sum it up... I love it and will be returning soon!

The most relaxing vacay ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place is gorgeous!! The water is so welcoming, has the beautiful ocean image without the salty burn! Great for the whole family everyone had a place to hide off too, to relax. The property manager made it so easy. We were picked up at the airport and we stopped to get groceries ahead of time. He checked in us to make sure we didn't need anything, which we actually needed shoes for our child which he picked up at the store for us! We will go back again for sure!!

Well when we first saw a glimpse of the lagoon through the trees as we drove along the highway we really thought we were looking at the ocean view with white sand!!! No the driver said "it is the bacalar lagoon" All i could say is WOW! Amazing lagoon was named bacalar which the mayans said was the sea of seven colours. Something that has to be seen not heard about.

We visited the town which was only 2 miles up the road where they had a historical fort where they had old stories of pirates ship battles. We found many restaurants that were great but the " playita" was the favorite by the whole family due to the free wifi!!! Lol

The property manager Dave gave us some ideas on tours and we decided to head to Mahahual for the "swim with dolphin experience". The kids had a great time and after swimming with dolphins we had the chance to have lunch on the white sand beach front. I saw they are adding a huge waterpark for nextnseason which will be great!!!

At Casa Paraiso We had catfish swim up to the dock and kids were feeding them and also were even lucky enough to catch one and released it for the next visit!!

Much more we would like to see but the week goes by to fast! The home was new and everything worked perfect. I would have gave it 5 star but feel if they had a kayak or a paddle boat of somekind we could have explored the lagoon and its many cenotes a bit more. Something they said they were looking at getting so thats great.

If you want to wake up to the sun rising over the lake and the most beautful view of this lagoon this place has the front row seat!! Thanks for the stay we will be back and hope to go kayaking next year!!
