Overview

Mahahual House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This new home is located at the approximate 14 kilometer point on the main beach road between Mahahual and Xcalak, south of Mahahual. This road is a dirt road skirting the Caribbean, passing resorts, restaurants and private houses. Additionally there is the 'fast road' easily accessible and allows you to be in town within 15 minutes.

Casa Costa Cristal is located in the very best location of all Costa Maya either North or South of Mahahual. The area is known for its beautiful water. It also is known as Puerto Angel.

The area is full of fun activities. You are able to stay at the home and enjoy the beautiful water, walk the white sanded beaches, and if you would like have snack/lunch/dinner at the new Almaplena Resort and Beach Club , located a short 5 minute walk away. Short drives allow access to other fine restaurants.

Depending on the time of year the town of Mahahual becomes a cruise ship destination, sometimes with as many as three ships in dock. The town becomes alive with travelers strolling the Malecon. It is of course equally as fun doing this without the excitement of the docked cruise ships, which provide you an opportunity to see a very relaxed little Mexican fishing village.

This area is known for its beauty, its fishing and especially its snorkeling and scuba activities. There is the famous Chinchoro reef and well as many smaller reefs just off shore.

Casa Costa Cristal is a 2600 s.f. home with palapa covered patios, with30 meters or about 100 feet of beautiful, white sand beach frontage, facing the majestic Caribbean Sea. It is surrounded by tropical and beach plants, including palm trees with coconuts, beautiful white beach lilies, and many other native trees and plants. The west side of the property borders a thick tropical jungle from which a variety of harmless animals wander from. You can walk in the evening while watching a 'light show' of fire flies.

Casa Costa Cristal is a new two bedroom with office, two story home. It has a fully equipped modern kitchen with double stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, a gas range,

and granite counter top with a kitchen island with seating. The walk-in pantry allows plenty of storage for your vacation staples. The kitchen is fully equipped with a selection of cooking utensils, pots and pans, plates, glasses, cups, coffee maker, and a blender for mixing margaritas in the evening. We provide plenty of bottled drinking water during your stay.

The first floor also has the guest bedroom with easy access to the downstairs bath. This bedroom has a queen sized bed, spacious closet and private porch with covered palapa roof.

The bathroom has a travertine stone shower, and travertine slab-stone vanity with storage.

The office is located on this level. There is a sleeping banco here that can be used for lounging as well as extra sleeping. The office is equipped with a tzalam desk.

The great Room is large and spacious with 14' ceilings. The room has two ceiling fans, and East/West clerestory windows to provide cooling breezes for those 'warmer' Caribbean days. There is a TV with satellite service (SKY). At one end of the room is a tzalam Dining table with chairs, made by a famous local woodworker who actually lives just a few houses away.

The laundry room is available for a fee, and contains a water saving washer and gas dryer. Laundry detergents etc. become the requirement of the user/guest.

Upstairs is the Master Suite. The bedroom has a king size bed. It opens to an awesome private porch, covered with a palapa roof and overlooks the beautiful Caribbean Sea, just 30' away.

The bath contains his/her closets with built in drawers. The large shower has travertine stone walls and floor and the double vanity, with plenty of storage has a travertine slab stone top.

There are two hammocks and a hammock chair for your leisurely use. Lounge around and read your favorite book or to take a traditional Mexican Siesta

Since there is no electrical service along the beach road, electricity at Casa Costa Cristal is provided by a state of the art solar system. The system consists of a bank of roof-top solar panels, inverter/controller and battery banks. There is a back-up generator that provides power in the case of overcast weather. The house electrical is US standard 120v power. The house uses eco-friendly low wattage bulbs, gas dryer, water heater and stove, to conserve as much as possible. We ask your cooperation to conserve electricity at all times.

Casa Costa Cristal is equipped with a satellite dish antenna system, providing a clear signal of a variety of SKY system offerings. There is also an internet wireless connection available for your use.

For your convenience there are chaise lounge chairs and other beach chairs available either on the water's edge or on the covered porches of the house.

On the property is a casita which houses a young couple, Moises and maricruz who will attend to your needs and watch the home while you are away. Daily room service is available at an extra charge.

We are happy to help you create an itinerary of activities, dining recommendations etc for a great stay at Casa Costa Cristal.

About Mary

We are a couple from California

Mary purchased this house in 2011

Why Mary chose Mahahual

Always aware that we would retire in Mexico, we spent several years traveling the country. When we arrived in the Costa Maya we immediately knew this was it. Being builders, we designed and built our beach home. We have been overwhelmed by the warmness of the population here, both native and expatriot.

What makes this house unique

There quite simply is always something to do or not do as your mood dictates!

Magical Beach House in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Casa Costa Cristal for 4 nights in August 2014. The beach house is beautiful and the town of Mahahual is a welcome change from the busy over-developed tourist resorts in Mexico. We enjoyed our stay so much that we wanted to extended for a few more days, but unfortunately the house was rented. We live in Puerto Aventuras (near Playa Del Carmen) so it was about 3 hours drive on the Highway. Mary, the owner, gave us excellent directions and always answered my e-mails promptly and very friendly. Moises and his family seem very nice and they are taking very good care of the property. The house was spotless when we arrived. They were very kind and gave us some milk the first morning as we had forgotten to buy it.

The property is beautifully designed and the location is ideal. The ocean breeze is delightful and we loved the privacy of the beach. It was wonderful being able to walk a few feet from the house and be in the stunning Caribbean Ocean. We brought our mountain bikes and the beach road was great for cycling into town. It took about 50 minutes and we enjoyed the scenery along the way. Mahahual town is also very bike friendly. There were no cruise ships in whilst we were there so the town was very quiet. There were some restaurants open but not many people around. We were very glad we chose to rent a beach home rather than stay in a hotel in town. Our visit was during ''rainy season’’ but we only had one stormy day, however this didn’t stop us from taking a dip in the ocean, and the lightening was very exciting to watch. The house is fully equipped with everything you need and the master bed is incredibly comfortable, something quite rare in Mexico! Internet connection was great. We didn’t use the TV but Sky channels were available.

We can’t wait to return to Casa Costa Cristal and experience the magic again.

Off the Grid Perfection

  • 5 of 5
My son and I recently spent 10 idyllic days at Casa Costa Cristal and could not have been happier. It is exactly as described, but the house, beach and overall flavor of the place are difficult to put into a few words. One simply must experience it to truly appreciate what all is there. Moises and Maricruz (caretakers) are onsite, but unobtrusive, and are eager to help in any way. They kept the beach raked and clean. We hired Moises and a friend to get lobster and fish off the reef. Mary, the owner is very responsive and a wealth of information about the area and nearby Mahahual. She cheerfully fielded even my dumb questions!! I spent most days lazing in a hammock, snorkeling on the reef that is about 30 meters off the beach, and laying under the palapa which is directly on the beach. We even went to town during port call of one of the Carnival Cruise ships and found it to be a bit busier, but not out of control. It was the perfect getaway to rest and recharge your batteries! The drive from Cancun is easy and is good road the entire way. I rented a Jeep, but really didn't need 4WD. Stop in Tulum to stock up on essentials as it is the last large grocery store that you are likely to encounter. Fruits, vegetables, and fish can be bought in Mahahual, but bring cash as there are not many ATMs and they are frequently down. Don't worry about the lack of A/C in the casa; if it had been there, we would not have used it as there is a constant breeze and the house is designed to make maximum use of the breezes. I will certainly be back to stay at this wonderful home if I don't buy one of the neighboring properties!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a place where you can relax and enjoy the soft white sand, beautiful blue water and peace and quiet then this is the place for you! The house is beautiful and spacious and very secluded. If you are more into night life, crowds and partying then this is not the place for you. (although there is a Senor Frog's and several places to hang out in Mahahual that caters to the cruise ships that dock there 2 days a week or so but it is not overwhelming to the small fishing village) It was perfect for us! There is a constant breeze off of the ocean that keeps the house nice and cool so not having an A/C was not an issue at all. Mahahual was a delight! My husband went scuba diving with Dr. Dive 3 days and they hunted Lion Fish one day. They are predators and kill the fish on the reef so they want you to hunt them. The local outdoor cafe next to the dive shop prepared the lion fish right out of the ocean and we had fresh Lion Fish ceviche for lunch. It was incredible. It was just my husband and me but there was plenty of room for more people but also not too big for just us two. There is a great outdoor deck area off of the master bedroom upstairs that was very nice also. We were there for Valentine's Day and the full moon rising over the ocean that night was a perfect ending to a great day at the beach and a fresh lobster dinner at a cafe right on the beach. I will most definitely be going back to Mahahual, hopefully soon! And if it's available I will stay at Casa Costa Cristal. We loved it so much we actually met with a local real estate agent to see some property for purchase.

Perfect Paradise!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently decided to stay at Casa Costa Cristal and it was by far the best, most relaxing, getaway we could ask for. Chrystal blue waters with no turtle grass or rocks and Moises and Maricruz
(caretakers) were fabulous. We cook alot and the kitchen was very well appointed and stocked with quality cooking items and flatware. If you want serious R & R this is the place. We will always return!!

Car: recommended

There is much to do! Our home is located on a crystal white beach, with blue water. Snorkeling, fishing, walking the shore, swimming, sunbathing, laying in the hammock and reading, walk to the nearby restaurant and have a refreshment, snack or meal, all at your immediate reach. Very short distances are other very good restaurants (beach resorts), cenotes, incredible archaeological sites (Mayan), scuba lessons, cooking lessons, learn Spanish or Mayan, or whatever. Belize is an hour away by car and you can take a ferry from Chetumal to the famous Belize island of Ambergris Caye. Please contact us for many more suggestions.
