LOS COCOS HOLBOX - CHARMING CABANA ON THE BEACH

Isla Holbox Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, kitchen, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Los Cocos Holbox is a charming beachfront cabana for those of us who can't get enough of the beach and who love to experience those soft tropical sunsets.

The cabana was constructed in a grove of coconut trees as a traditional fisherman's cabana with a palapa roof. The cabana was recently restored and updated to provide guests with modern comforts and amenities, while retaining its authentic island feel. The best of both worlds!

When you wake up at Los Cocos Holbox, there's no need to go to the beach. You're already there! Step outside the door and your feet are in the sand. In the morning, you can watch the fishermen bring in the nightly catch as the seabirds wheel and dive. All day long, you can watch the hypnotic every-changing sea. And the evenings are punctuated by those incredible sunsets for which Isla Holbox is renowned.

The cabana is equipped with 2 bicycles and a 2 kayaks for your free use. And, of course, you can hang hammocks from the coconut trees in front to enjoy your island home.

The cabana is cozy, comfortable, and suitable for one or two beach-loving adults. Inside, you'll find a bedroom with queen size bed, AC, kitchen, and bathroom. Easing the transition between the house and the paradise outside is a porch/sunroom with ocean views. Finally, there's a magical outside shower with overhanging seagrape trees.

Holbox's central square, where you'll find a variety of restaurants and grocery stores, is a short 5 minute walk from Los Cocos.

While Holbox still has a remote 'Robinson Crusoe' feel, we can make it easy for you to get here. Ask us about setting up a personal transfer for your party direct from Cancun's airport -- or from anywhere on the Maya Riviera.

Our guests love us, and return!

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for three nights in beautiful Los Cocos and didn't want to leave. Booking with James the owner was professional and courteous and his staff who greet you at the house were the same.
The kitchen had everything we needed and more, the bathroom was also well equipped with an indoor shower, however the outdoor shower was my favourite.
The main area had adequate storage and a very comfortable bed, the air conditioning worked well and kept us cool in the evenings, however it was not needed during the day due to the wonderful sea breeze.
The screened in area and the outdoor garden were wonderful for relaxing and right on the beach with amazing views.
Los Cocos is private but not secluded, and an easy five minute walk to town where you will find small stores and restaurants to buy everything you need. Holbox is rustic, the local people so friendly.......we loved hanging around the bustling town square in the evenings, the stall vendors selling amazing local food.
James arranged our airport pick up and transfer along with ferry tickets and local golf cart taxi to the house. It was all very smooth and easy.
If you are getting tired of the all inclusive scene this is a great laid back alternative where life slows down and you can kick back and relax. We found many things to enjoy on Holbox and used the bikes and kayaks provided with the house to explore...........we have finally found our happy place!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we stayed at Los Cocos - and it was even better than the first. The experience from planning your stay to meeting Rosie and Tanchi makes this a place invites you to 'move in' and take a load off - your feet, your heart, your head. Everything about this place is welcoming. We are looking forward to our next stay!

A little slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here in April, it was absolute paradise. The place is exactly as you see it in the pictures. Rosie and Tanchi are the most amazing hosts, anything you need they will help you with; they even cooked us an incredible home-cooked fish, freshly caught that day! The sunsets are breathtaking, the beach is your own private ocean, the place is tranquil and peaceful, your batteries will be recharged and your spirit will be soaring! I can't say enough about how perfect this place is. I've been trying to book my next vacation there ever since I got back!

If you are lucky enough to book it, you are in for a very special treat, one you will never forget.

Fabulous place! Way better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Los Cocos! The prior review by "RR" describes it perfectly. It is small (perfect for 2 people), clean & neat, simple, yet provides everything you need and is in a fabulous location. This was our second trip to Isla Holbox and we found staying here was much better than our previous stay at Las Tortugas hotel. Much more private and personal. The caretaker Rosy was there when we needed her and arranged our transfers to and from the island which went seamlessly. We had one problem during our stay and James, the owner, was quick to respond and rectify the situation. Honestly, I don't think we could have asked for much more. Thanks, James & Rosy! Looking forward to next year!

Los Cocos was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5
We've been to Holbox three times now after trying out Cancun and pretty much every place along the Mayan Riviera. Each time, it seemed like we were trying to get further away from crowds/turistas and enjoy only what we loved about Mexico. Isla Holbox offers that more than anywhere we've been. It is rustic, charming, slow, beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. Previously, we had rented a larger home down the beach with our adult kids, but that place has been purchased and is no longer a rental. What a happy accident for us as it allowed us to find Los Cocos, and it was just the two of us, so no need for a larger place. Los Cocos is/was perfect for us. I can't overstate the super location, just steps out your gate to the beach and access to all it offers. Even with such great access and beachfront location, Los Cocos offers a ton of privacy and seclusion. Coconut trees everywhere for changing shade areas during the days. You can move from hammock to beach chair to screened in patio at your pleasure. There even is a very private, awesome outdoor shower that I miss so much! It's a simple addition, like so many at Los Cocos, but it and the others really add to the place and visitors' experiences. The screened porch is a great space to spend when you don't want so much sun, and it is very comfortably appointed with a ceiling fan and cool breezes. Inside the cabana is a very adequate bed, a writing desk and chair and enough shelves and storage to keep your civilian clothes and stuff you brought along but never unpacked because you mostly just wore your swim trunks and a few shirts. The kitchen has most of what you'll need, which is not much since there are so many food options on the island nearby and plenty of mini-supers for essential groceries, produce, beer and tequila.

James, the owner, is very responsive/involved in the property. We emailed several times on the reservation itself, and also for his input. He is very helpful, and a nice man. Rosy, the caretaker, and her husband, Tanchi, are great people. You will get to know them and enjoy their company, but they are not intrusive at all. They are just available, if and when you need them. Rosy makes sure everything is taken care of. Tanchi has a boat for excursions and fishing and makes one awesome ceviche! Maid service every 3rd night was an unexpected bonus. Fresh sheets and towels. My wife teased me for calling Los Cocos "home" a few times, but that is how it got to feel. We will be back soon!

We were so captivated by this property and the lovely island. Rosy made our stay comfortable; we needed nothing extra! The photos of this cabana are exactly what you will find....lovely outdoor shower and plenty of available drinking water. Steps to the water and in May so uncrowded - we really did feel like we owned it! Lucky us had no mosquitoes, perfect weather and great bird watching. Easy walk to many restaurants either down the beach or down the road. Friendly people too!
