There is only a small handful of beachfront homes for rent on Isla Holbox, and Casa Sol y Mar is one of them. Built in 2000 it was designed by an award winning film director. Sol y Mar is the only house on the island that -because of the vast veranda that flanks the whole length of the house – is conceived to be able to live outside as comfortably as inside. This artist-designed beach house is set in a peaceful location directly on the beach (think toes in the sand), yet within easy walking distance to the main Plaza’s attractions and restaurants. The home is open and spacious with wide open views to the turquoise sea. It has eleven meters in length and nine meters in width. A nine-meter high “palapa” designed to keep the house always fresh – even in the hottest summer days - crowns the house. Inside Casa Sol y Mar are a large and comfortable bedroom, a bathroom with two separate entrances, entirely decorated with “talavera” tiles with double sink and shower, a fully equipped kitchen, and living/dining room with a futon that can accommodate two. A unique system of ten specially designed windows has been conceived to dose exactly the amount of air one chooses to cool the house. The house was recently reconstructed and updated, and is sure to please travelers who are looking for a true beach house on this tranquil island. But, of course, on Holbox the action is outside and Casa Sol y Mar is specifically designed for outside living. You’ll definitely be impressed by the ever-changing sea view from the large covered veranda, and the sunsets are always incredible. The plush tropical garden with coconut trees, banana trees, bougainvillea has also a big barbecue and a surprising exterior shower.
Casa Sol y Mar lies at two blocks from town center
