Mahahual House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Have you ever dreamed of living in your very own sand~castle by the sea? If so, we have the perfect place for you!

The majestic Casa Playa Maya is a stunning 3 bedroom 3 bathroom villa, located at arguably the best Caribbean beach in all of Costa Maya, Puerto Angel. It's inticing castlelike facade grows out of the sugar fine white sand as the gentle waves, crystal clear waters and coconut palms complete the scene to help make this dramatic beach home an ideal vacation destination.

Tall glass doors line the entire beach side of this home on the ground floor, allowing you to step out onto your tiled terrace from any room, with an uninterrupted view of the lapping waves and turquoise water. The main level features a fully equipped spacious kitchen, complete with a full sized refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, numerous small appliances, walk-in pantry, tiled countertop which seats four leading to the dining room, with seating for six. The beautifully variegated warm-toned hardwood table and chairs were locally handcrafted and not only serve as a perfect dining station, but they also create a wonderful place for playing cards, dominos or board games which we have provided for your enjoyment.

An adjacent great room with a vaulted ceiling and large upper windows give an atrium~like ambiance and offers panoramic views up and down the Caribbean coastline from anywhere in the room. Locally made 'contemporary mission style' furniture provides comfortable seating for your entire group and the oversized sofa makes a great place for a breezy indoor sea-side 'siesta'.

Around the corner, the downstairs king bedrooms' sliding glass doors open to a beach view that seems to invite the outside in, making it feel as though you are actually sleeping on the beach! Your walk in closet has plenty of hanging, drawer & shelf space including a personal safe. The attached spacious bathroom is beautifully decorated with traditional Mexican tiles.

Down the hallway, a sizable tile-shelved laundry room provides not only storage for an array of beach toys, masks, floats and more, it also becomes an ideal spot for hanging your bathing suits, wet suits, snorkel gear & beach towels to dry. An ample utility room also serves as your recycling center and 2 generous closets house additional comforts such as extra linens, towels & bedding, books & games, plastic patio table & chairs for 6, fishing equiptment, portable playpen, air mattresses & hammocks.

The design of this beach home allows for the sea breeze to freely flow throughout the entire home, providing your haven with a fresh and airy feel. On the rare occasions that the air seems still, ceiling fans throughout the casa will help to keep you comfortable, even in this tropical climate.

Head up the gorgeous centrally located staircase to find the TV lounge area which overlooks the great room and has exquisite views of the beach. A duplicate set of the Mayan~made sofa, love-seat, chair & tables make this common area the perfect place for watching movies, playing games, reading a good book or even streaming free online television from your personal HDMI laptop computer. This room can also be used as an additional sleeping area with air beds and is especially great for kids.

Leading off on either side of the lounge, you will find a king~sized master bedroom suite with a large closet which has built in drawers, shelves, a personal safe & plenty of hanging space. Each bedroom has it’s own delightfully tiled 3/4 bath on the west end of the room & to the east, sliding doors face the Caribbean Ocean leading you out onto your very own covered balcony, a perfect place to wake up with your favorite cup of coffee or tea and a romantic spot to catch a memorable moonbeam or shooting star show before turning in after a day of pure pleasure.

Another favorite place to be in this gorgeous beach home is on the rooftop!

Accessible from the upper lounge, ascend the 'caracol' to a breathtaking delight. Stretch out on comfy cozy cushions topping the built-in concrete sofas under the dappled shade of the lanai or swing in your hammock in the sunshine of this outdoor living area offering privacy, amazing breezes and fabulous bird watching. This wonderfully serene space also makes a great place for practicing yoga, tai chi and meditation, as well as affording sun~seekers the opportunity to even out their tan lines in peace. From this picturesque perch, expect sublime sunrise vistas of the Caribbean coastline boasting birdseye views of the world famous Mesoamerican Reef to the east, but not to be topped by the gorgeous landscapes and peaceful sunsets over the mystical Mayan jungle to the west.

This eco-friendly home is completely off the grid so it enjoys the use of solar power with a back up propane fueled generator, propane also fuels the stove & hot water tank. Casa Playa Maya's water is collected in an underground cistern and is replenished with rain water. For these reasons, we ask you to be mindful of the situation by turning off ceiling fans & lights when leaving a room, unplugging your laptop computer & cell phones when fully charged, utilizing opportunities to conserve water whenever possible, and so on. Our solar system is very efficient and has proven to be more than adequate for most scenerios, however there may be times when overcast conditions deem it necessary to utilize the generator to charge the batteries. Don't worry, shifting into 'eco~mode' is not really hard at all & we are happy to provide you with helpful hints and tips to become super [solar] empowered, if you would like! Many visitors here enjoy the calm that comes with the soft glow of candlelight dining and relaxing after the sun goes down, but knowing you have a system that can handle watching tv, playing on your computer and utilizing the ceiling fans and lighting well after dark, is always a comfort.

We are thrilled to be able to offer this amazing fantasy by the sea with a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom option. You will have all of the aforementioned areas and will simply rent 1, 2 or 3 king bed/bath combos as your party requires. With the 3 bedroom selection, all of Casa Playa Maya is included as described and this is also our handicapped/wheelchair accessibility option. If you find that your party only needs a 2/2, you would be renting both of the bedrooms on the second story & with the 1 bedroom rental, you'll enjoy your sweet dreams in the upstairs~north boudoir.

It Couldn't Have Been Better!

It Couldn't Have Been Better!

To celebrate our anniversary, we planned a trip to the Yucatan. We wanted something off the beaten track, so we decided to look in the Mahahual area. We were delighted when Amanda of Casa Playa Maya answered our inquiry. Throughout our interactions, we found Amanda responsive, warm, and great to deal with. Amanda and her husband Richard were big reasons why everything went so beautifully. The photographs don't do it justice. The house and property are very well maintained. Well-equipped kitchen; the place was spotlessly clean; we had a gorgeous bedroom with balcony overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed the eco-living: using a minimum of lights in the evenings, paying attention to water consumption, etc. What was really special, however, was the empty, unspoiled beaches, with gentle waves, warm water and lots of space. A great place to relax and renew. In the evenings we were more interested in the moon and stars than in keeping the house brightly lit. There was plenty of power for the occasional DVD - we were never uncomfortable. We loved the immediacy of nature, the quiet, and the natural beauty. We went into Mahahual several times. Had great ceviche on the malecon and excellent tacos. Enjoyed a drive to Xcalak and a fabulous meal at the Leaky Palapa. When we arrived we were greeted by a dramatic storm: thunder, lightning and lots of rain. Also greeted with a terrific meal prepared for us, photo attached. After the storm, the weather was gorgeous. Casa Playa Maya is in a rather remote area, so we appreciated Richard and Amelia being on the property (in their own casita). They were never intrusive, yet always seemed available when we needed something. By the way, there was never anything to worry about. This was a perfect spot for us. We swam three or four times a day, took long walks on a beach, and rarely saw another person. There was lots to do, if you were looking for activities, and lots of reasons to do nothing. Loved it!

¡Best Vacation Ever!

We were 2 families, 4 adults, 4 teens + 2 kids; the house was spacious enough to accommodate every one and always give a space to enjoy every minute of the day. I am quoting my daughters, "best vacations ever mom!"... They had so much fun with their cousins; they started in the morning kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, playing volleyball. My sister and I were very relaxed enjoying the view and seeing the kids playing in very safe environment. The beach is very nice, just precious white sand that the little ones enjoyed all the day making castles under the palm tree in front of beach. In the afternoons we all used to walk on the beach, very relaxing, it was like a private paradise.

The house was super clean and we had everything we need, we had a lot of fun cooking in family, we even made a barbeque and grilled some fishes and lobsters that we bought from local fishermen.

Amada and Richard: Thank you so much for all the kindness you had with my family. We had such a wonderful time during our stay at Casa Playa Maya. Personally, I want to thank you for helping me to relax the first days, when I was overwhelmed with the solitude of the place and felt very vulnerable. But you made me feel safe and you two were always there very kind and supportive. I wish to come back with my family again on the first opportunity we have.

Vacation from heaven

We visited Casa Playa Maya with our kids and sister's family. The house was large enough for both families and the kids were in heaven on their private beach and the boogie boards! We were so relaxed being away from crowds and loved waking up to the beach right at our footsteps! We had all amenities one can ask for! Amanda was always helpful and so very sweet with a medical emergency we had with our 4 year old. Such a blessing to spend quality relaxing time with our family! Kids did great being off grid! Looking forward to booking this place again!

Map

Oceanfront : With the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef in the front yard, this area is known for world class snorkeling and diving. Casa Playa Maya has a large number of beautiful brain coral heads, tropical fish & abundant sea life just a few steps & strokes away from your beach lounge chair!

Beach View : Aside from the 360 degree jungle-to-ocean view from your private rooftop terrace, the entire ground floor and upstairs bedrooms all have sliding glass doors leading out to a balcony or patio on the fabulous Caribbean Ocean.

Beachfront : Sugar fine white sand, gentle waves and clear waters free of turtle grass, make this Puerto Angel home a dreamy vacation destination.

Ocean View : You have to be inside of a closet not to see the ocean from any place in this amazing Costa Mayan beach home!

Water View : All rooms in this 'sand~castle by the sea' face the Caribbean Ocean!

Located 15km south of the Mayan fishing village & Mexico's favorite cruise ship destination of Mahahual, Casa Playa Maya offers you the best of both worlds. While relaxing at your villa, you'll enjoy a very private pristine beach where you can experience amazing brain corals & encounter spectacular sea~life when snorkeling & fishing right off the shore. Swimming here in Puerto Angel is truly a pleasure with it's clean and sandy ocean floor, free of jagged bits and turtle grass. When you are ready for a change of pace, take a stroll heading south towards Xcalak, to walk the beach for miles without ever seeing a soul. The first house that you will even encounter is .5 km away. Be sure to carry a bag with yourself so that you will have a place to put all of the wonderful gifts that 'el Caribe' has to offer you! This area is known for it's variety of 'sea-beans' that are found washed up on the shore among the wrack. These Mayan amulets of love, clarity and good fortune are sure to be treasured long after your adventure has come to a close. Traveling in the other direction, gets slightly more populated as you head to town. The closest house is rarely occupied by more than one or two people and there is a good chance that your paths may never even cross during your stay. As you venture further up the beach road, you may encounter a bit more activity with locals as well as other happy adventurers. On days when cruise ships are around, you will find busier mid-morning and afternoons, which will settle back to a mellow mahahual pace by early evening as 'the cruisers' head back to their ships.

For a more social & diverse atmosphere, a 30 minute scenic ride up the beach road {or a 20 minute paved rode ride into town}, will provide you with a wide variety of delectable delights from this mayan region and around the globe. the heavy mayan influence here in costa maya is peppered with a range of settlers from all over the world, which provides for a colorful stroll of sights, sounds & smells on mahahual's beach walkway, the malecon. who knows, you may find yourself sharing a fabulous {locally grown} fruity beverage with the next ernest hemingway, while swinging in your chair @ the 'nacional beach club' bar! from there, a 2 minute walk heading south could have you dining @ 'nooch kay' {mayan for 'big fish'} savoring some of costa maya's best fresh caught fish prepared to perfection, then head 4 minutes {back} to the north for an amazing twilight experience @ 'cien por ciento agave' {100% agave} where you can experience a gorgeous typical mayan 2~story palapa restaurant/bar w/a bird's eye view of the malecon & 'el caribe'. the owner & staff make you feel like family & they will stay open long after the doors officially close, as the crowd dictates.
