"We rented Casa Darya for a week and fell in love with Casa Darya and Holbox Island.
Owner Megan is very responsive and a good listener.
Megan and her neighbor are in the process of finalizing property and guest management details - all of which worked out fine during our visit.
As advertised, the home is situated right on the beach. It is one of the best feelings in the world to listen to the sea at night and walk straight out into the sea in the morning to swim.
The property is fabulously located, a short walk from restaurants, town and the best sunset watching tiki bar in the world - Zomay Hotel.
Casa Darya is a three bedroom attached condo.
The Master Bedroom has a beautiful sea view. The closets are plentiful and there is a small safe for passports etc. in the Master Closet area.
The other two bedrooms are beautifully appointed, simple and very comfortable.
AC in the house and each bedroom is excellent !!!!!
The kitchen comes well stocked with silverware, cookware, pots and pans.
We did cook in a couple of times but the restaurant choices on the beach and in Holbox town are reasonably priced and really excellent.
The quality of the food is surprisingly good on Holbox Island. We loved lunch at Villa Flamenco's and enjoyed excellent dinners in several of the towns restaurants, including the very progressive Restaurante Milpa.
We walked for miles each day along the beach and found new places to stop and explore every day.
Holbox is a throwback in time in that the Islanders and visitors seem to happily co-exist with a minimum of fuss or bother.
Casa Darya is blessed with a very resourceful House Manager - Chuy.
I suspect that Chuy can arrange anything.............
He arranged a fabulous day fishing trip for six people. We snorkeled, caught fish and ate ceviche made from the freshly could fish. More heaven !!
Holbox is relatively raw and undeveloped.
It reminds us of Akumal in 1985.
We hated leaving....
Go now !!
More info - Getting there...........
We flew into Cancun, rented a car and drove two hours to the Holbox Ferry.
Long term Parking in the parking lots by the Ferry is very reasonable.
When you get off the Ferry, you take a golf cart taxi to the Casa - max three passengers.
When we return to Holbox, we will book a small plane for a 20 minute flight from Cancun directly into Holbox. There are several small charter plane services that cost around $450 - $550 for 5 passengers.
Last, take pesos. There is only one ATM on the Island."
