“Very nice beach house in private setting near wildlife preserve”
My sisters and I chose Isla Holbox for our annual sisters' getaway this year, and what a treat it was. The house is wonderfully situated for guests who like privacy and miles of beach to explore. The sweet Mexican town is about a mile's walk, though it's easy to get a golf cart taxi to and from town. The area is extremely safe, particularly in comparison with some other places we've stayed in Mexico, and the natives friendly and helpful. Some very good restaurants. The house itself has many good points and a few things we wished were different. The bedrooms are spacious and attractive, each with its own en-suite bath and terrace. Beds are great. The kitchen is a bit sparse, toaster oven being the only oven, dishes and glasses somewhat limited, etc. but once we got a system figured out it all worked fine. The table for eating is on the patio, which is fine when you want to eat outdoors but not so fine when the mosquitoes come out (dusk), and there really is no place to eat indoors except for a counter with 3 stools in the kitchen. Also, the common area is very small, a bit dark compared with the rest of the house, (one sofa) and not really suited to gatherings. We ended up creating a "living" area in the otherwise unused 1st floor bedroom, which helped but wouldn't work so well if all 3 bedrooms were being used. Would love to see that 1st floor bedroom turned into a living/dining room. The proximity of the sea and the sound of gentle lapping waves was a total pleasure, as was the beach with miles of beautiful coastline to explore. Very pleasant and safe swimming. We had a heron visit our pool each morning and saw numerous other birds. Several iguanas call this property home and come out to sun at mid-day. Truly a beautiful setting. Jesus, the property manager, was out of town for most of our visit, but his employee, Freddy, was available in any way we needed. He was wonderful! Even found for us a woman who makes flan, a large pan of which Freddy brought us (via golf cart of course) so that it could act as a birthday "cake" for one sister's birthday. He is a gem. A couple of tips: We used Eduardo Garcia of My Cancun Transportation for the trip from Cancun to Chaquila and back, and he was excellent and his prices fair. He offers either a Suburban or a sedan. For a small additional charge the driver stopped at Walmart in Cancun so we could stock up on groceries before going to the ferry at Chaquila. We took with us a few sturdy bags for carrying the groceries, which worked well, and when we got to the house, voila! we had everything we needed. There are markets in Holbox but the selection at Walmart is better. Hope this helps. We loved out time at the house and the very laid-back and lovely island.
“An awesome vacation spot”
I recently returned from a week-long stay at this house on the beach. From start to finish the experience was incredible. I have been to the island twice previously, once with a few good friends, a second time alone with my wife, but this time, most of the family was along, a total of 8 adults and 3 young children. The van and ferry ride both went smoothly and we arrived on the island with Jesus waiting at the dock with enough golf carts to carry the whole family and our luggage. When we arrived at the house, Jesus took the time to show us around the house and property and let us know how to get in touch with him if we needed anything. The house was clean and well kept. The property includes a nice pool which was perfect for the kids. Half of the pool has a shallow sloping bottom which allows the kids to easily enter and exit, while the other half is deeper for swimming. The beach in front of the house is also great for kids. Beautiful sand with a very gradual slope provides plenty of room for the kids to play before it gets too deep. In addition to providing an excellent vacation property, Jesus also provides top-notch service. When I called Jesus on the cell phone he provided, if he did not answer immediately, he was always very quick to return my call. Jesus went out of his way to personally show us where we could buy fresh meat locally. He setup a half-day fishing trip with a local captain who picked us up right on the beach in front of the house. The captain and his helper were hard-working and friendly and made the trip a real pleasure. The only negative ... was that my wife caught the biggest fish and I will be hearing about that forever. :-( Even after I was back in MN, Jesus facilitated the return of my drivers license which I had forgotten to retrieve when I returned the rental golf carts. I would highly recommend this property and Jesus to anyone interested in spending some time on Holbox.
Response from the owner thanks for your Comments nice people like you make us to love what we do hope to see you again
If you're looking for a place to wind down, take a break, this is just the spot. Quiet, simple with good amenities you can bring the family or friends and have good privacy since all three bedrooms are spaced apart and each has an ensuite bathroom. Lie in bed and look at the ocean! Really clean, and the property manager is on the ball and will make sure your stay is great. The only drawback is mosquitos at dusk but only then. Bring repellant or stay inside. We would return anytime!
Response from the owner Thanks for your Comments yes Mosquitos are part of Isla Holbox hope you come back soon
“Big nice house on the island”
We spent our last Holbox vacation in the beach front rental. We have been to Holbox numerous times now and I want to start saying this is a no frills island. You are definitely not "roughing" it, but dont expect your typical catered island. With that said this house is unique to the island. It is far from the town center, but is one of the only house rentals with this much space. 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, we were with a party of 6 and everyone felt very comfortable and had their own space. The private pool is also unique and we actually used it a lot more than we thought we would. There we a couple items that happened with the house, but Jesus, the property manager, was super responsive and made sure we were comfortable. I would definitely recommend and we will probably stay here again next time if its available
Response from the owner Hello thanks for your reviene you are welcome to come Back
“Nice house in Holbox”
We had a great time at this house. It very comfortably fit our family of 8. The only complaint is that there is no aC.
“Amazing experience in that beautiful island”
We were looking for a place to be perfect to spend time with the family and enjoy the nature and Beuty of the Caribbean. We found Isla Holbox, and I have to say it had to be the best destiny we could had ever found. We looked for transfers, a place to stay at and things to do over there, we found Holbox adventure on the Internet. We contacted Jesus, he was always very kind and informative about everything we wanted to know. He arranged everything for us to our vacations be more than perfect. We had a 10 days house rental wich it was a very very nice beach house. It even has its own house cellphone so if you need to call Jesus any time 24/7 from a local number, I have to say that was such a helpfull idea, we could used it for our own needs since is a prepay cellphone you can just put some money on it. The house was always clean, there's a lady who goes everyday. The beach in front of the house is amazing it pretty much looks like your own private beach since the house has a location that is never too crowded. We went to the whale shark tour, we all were amazed, one of the most exciting experiences ever in our life. And again jesus and his all Holbox adventure staff made it perfect, always on time. We really appreciated the way they take care of the hole sea and beach nature. He knows exactly where to go fishing and do it professionally good. My hole family and I are very thankful, beacause we were treated like stars and the price for the hole family vacation wasn't high at all, very reasonables prices in everything they offer, the transfer, the house, all the tours they have and he even has taxi service too. So all I have to say is thank you very very much Holbox adventure and you will have us again this year :)
“The best hollydays ever”
It was thw best trip i ever had. we had a perfect service,from Carmelo and his crew, taking us to see the whale shark, and cooking us some ceviches. the house was very clean and the big size bedrooms with ocean view.the town is a nile away with good local restaurants and bars. The easy going people and the tranquility of the place made my trip unforgrtable. Thankyou Holbox. Youre the best.
