PLEASE BE AWARE THE VILLA EASILY SLEEPS 10 ADULTS BUT THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE OF $25 DOLLARS PER PERSON PER DAY FOR MORE THAN 5 GUESTS. ON A PER PERSON BASIS THIS IS STILL AN EXTREMELY GOOD PRICE FOR A LARGE PRIVATE HOME ON THE BEACH. Casa Que Canta 'The House that Sings' consists of two complete two bedroom homes connected together by a central courtyard and garden on the ground level and a large balcony area on the second level. Plus we have a small pool on the roof with shaded terrace. For those that don't like to cook we can provide all inclusive packages with meals prepared on site by Sandra - our Velador. Sandra is a great cook and our guests love her food.

Sandra is a great cook and our guests love her food. The villa is a private home located 5 miles north of Mahahual - considered the number one cruise ship destination in Mexico. The beaches are powder white sand protected by a coral reef just 250 yards off shore. Ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and sun bathing. Area is know for world class diving. Reef in front of the property has a large number of beautiful corral heads. Snorkeling and dive trips also available in nearby Mahahual. Many restaurants and shops are available with more every day. Diving and snorkeliing tours can be easily be arranged in town - we can suggest our favorite dive shops. The villa itself is fully self contained with solar electric, gas stove and hot water. We recently connected to the electric grid and can now offer air conditioning in the bedrooms is you so desire. Drinking water is bottled and supplied with the unit. Both units include daily maid service and linens. . The interior is native stone flooring of Tikul and Conchuela with counter tops of Emerald Green Honduran Verde Tikal. Court yard has a garden and fountain and small bird aviary. Design was done by Ricardo Romay - a well know and respected Mexican Architect - his work has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Doors and windows are all native hardwoods - handcrafted of Granadilla, Cedro Roja, and Xalam. Perfect place for couples, families, and any one wanting a quiet tropical get away. Please feel free to email or call us with any questions about the property. Also make sure that you check out the photos - the place is visually stunning. Our guest and the locals all tell us our new home is the most beautiful villa on the entire coast. Regards, Joe & Maureen - OwnersMore

Thanks for the great review. Loved having you visit and look forward to seeing you again. And you are right - villa maintenance on the ocean with all the salt air is a constant issue, but we try to stay on top of it.

About the neighbourhood
Mahahaul is the newest cruise ship destination on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. The town is small, quiet, and the beaches are some of the best in Mexico. Our villa is north of town with the reef just 200 yards out front. Fishing, diving, and snorkeling are all excellent. The Bonefish and Tarpon in the nearby Lakes and Bay of Chetumal are large and plentiful. Great place for a quiet get away or family vacation. We can also arrange or provide directions to several nearby Mayan Ruins - almost never crowded and well worth seeing. Or take a day and go to Lake Bacalar - The 'Lake of the seven colors' for a swim in the cenote or to do some Ziplinning.
Getting around
There are taxis in town but a car is recommended.
