“lovely sea front villa in paradise” We spent almost 2 weeks at this lovely sea front villa, which is surrounded by a stunningly beautiful beach, garden and jungle. If you like a secluded and tranquil vacation spot- this is it! Mahahual is 3 hrs away from the touristy areas of the Mexican Caribbean, but we did not mind the long drive in exchange for a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the resort towns of the northern Yucatan. Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas sits in an exceptional nice Costa Maya location on the beach 5 miles south of Mahahual. The area is not developed and there are no other rental houses in proximity. The closest permanent neighbor, the Cabah-na cabanas with a nice bar, is about a quarter mile away. Every day we got up early in the morning to have coffee viewing the spectacular Caribbean sunrises and then spent most of our time snorkeling, swimming and kayaking. We had 2 stormy days which we used for excursions to see spectacular Mayan pyramids (40 min drive) and for beach combing (lots of sea beans!). Special thanks to the owners for providing very detailed information and tips for these trips. The nicely decorated house is well equipped. Carpentry work by local artisans gives the house a very special touch. Its octagonal shape with windows facing all directions of the windrose, allows for an optimal climatization by the sea breeze. I like to mention the library: aside of many good reads it contains an almost comprehensive collection of more than 30 Mexico or Mesoamerica nature guides (reef fish, plants, trees, birds, reptiles, mammals, even star gazing). The outdoor facilities (terraces, balcony, multiple seating areas, sun shelters) are amazing. They are exceptionally large and inbedded in the landscaped garden or beach area. We especially liked the bench at the freshwater pond. Many birds came to the pond for water and it was a very good spot for bird watching. We recommend Casa del Cielo without reservation and hope we can come back.
