Located on the Mexican Caribbean 7.8 kilometers north of Xcalak, the house's upper unit has a fully equipped kitchen, beautifully tiled bath and living room with TV. The dining room (seats 6) has a thatched roof which opens on to a beautiful terrace. A large master bedroom with it’s own personal bathroom and patio has been added to the apartment.

Theses 'lagunas' are home to many different species both aquatic (bonefish, baby tarpon, ...) and land (birds, small crocodiles, ...). The Xcalak area is know for its flyfishing and generally for fishing. It is also a superbe area for diving with its great barrier reef and with 'Banco Chinchorro', an atoll 2 1/2 hours away by boat. The island of San Pedro, Belize is only a 1 1/2 hour boat ride away and makes an interesting day trip as does Mahahual , a town 60 km north of Xcalak. Finally the Mayan ruins of Chaccoben are only 2 hours away.

Further information: The house is located in a marine park. Upon arrival, please stop in at XTC Dive Centre to purchase your entry bracelet. XTC Dive Centre is found on the beach road to your left when leaving Xcalak.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for making the end of our travels in Mexico such a special experience. We’ve relished our time in your beautiful home with its unparalleled setting and incomparable hospitality. Ok I’m out of superlatives, but please know that they are sincere. We have really appreciated all the services of Teo and Luz (including instant mechanic !) and Philippe’s wonderful introduction to the coral inhabitants of your front (sea) yard. Wishing you health and happiness. Hope to see you in the future.

Philippe is French and Gisele is Canadian. They have a rental apartment in France and also work there in the entertainment business doing cultural shows.

Gisele Muller purchased this villa in 2007

We chose to buy in Xcalak and more particularly Casa Caracola because the snorkelling is fantastic right off the beach in front of the house. There are many coral heads there and the reef is not for off.

Philippe loves the sea and they both spend much of their time doing water activities such as snorkelling and free diving.

The other positive point is that the area is very peaceful and relaxing. It is truly a unique and authentic spot.

SECLUDED AND RELAXING

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Casa Caracola. The house is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. The picutures on the web site are accurate. The beach is beautiful and the water an amazing color as viewed from the upstairs deck. We enjoyed hanging out on the deck in the sun and at night to view the stars. The road from Xcalak to the house is pretty rough and takes about 20 minutes for 8km so going to one of the few restaurants is not a quick trip. We ate in that worked well for us. The snorkeling was fun and we only got to take the kayaks out once because of the wind. We had fun scuba diving with XTC. There was an issue of a break-in several houses down one night and a nice neighbor informed us so we were sure to lock the door and accessible window at night. A safe is provided for valuables and we had no problems. Casa Caracola was a great place for us to stay in Xcalak. Thanks Gisele!

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Casa Caracola for 7 nights and we absolutely loved the property. We have stayed in Xcalak several times, and this was our fist stay at Casa Caracola. This is one of the most beautiful homes on the coast. We stayed in the upstairs apartment with a full kitchen, it was more than enough room for the two of us. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked almost all of our meals in. Once we arrived, we rarely used our car and we were perfectly happy relaxing on the beautiful beach, playing volleyball, biking down the beach road, snorkeling and kayaking out to the reef. The lagoon in the back of the property is very nice, great fishing and bird viewing. We loved the tranquility of Casa Caracola. The property owners Phillipe and Giselle are wonderful hosts. The caretakers were also extremely helpful. We highly recommend this property, and plan to come back again. "merci beaucoup!"

To get there – no problem. We rented a car and stopped in Playa to to pick up a cooler and staples on the way through. The roads were in excellent condition all the way. Remember to watch for the topes (speed bumps) they are huge in Mexico.The location – spectacular. Sky, sea, trade winds and accessable reef for kyaking and snorkelling. This is a very small undiscovered community, probably the Yucatan's last fronteer. The owners – Gisele and Phillipe are really interesting people and their enthusiasm is contageous. Accommodation – Tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, very comfortable with breathtaking views.We stayed two weeks. There are places to explore within driving distance from Xclak but for us there was no reason to leave this restful retreat. If we weren't swimming, snorkelling or walking the dogs along the beach we were sitting happily under a palapa reading a good book.We savored the moment each and every day. The place is magical ! Can't wait to get back.

FANTASTIC!!!

  • 5 of 5
We visited in March and the weather was perfect! Gorgeous beach!! Lovely breeze.

It is by a small village so we brought our food in with us. There is a grocery truck that comes by but we missed it every time.

The apartment was lovely. It was clean and vey well maintained. The property is looked after by a nice couple who come in every day and clean. Even the property is maintained every day.

The snorkling is fantastic and so close to shore. The water is nice and shallow by the beach. Great for kids!

We were greeted on arrival and were treated graciously.

If you can live without your hair blower I recommend Casa Caracola.

We would not hesitate to go back.
