Mahahual House Rental Photos and Description

Private Beachfront Home 15 Km South Of Mahahual With Breathtaking 360 Views

If you've ever wanted to play Robinson Crusoe or Swiss Family Robinson, but still have communication with the rest of the world at your fingertips, Casa de Cocos is the vacation home you've been dreaming of. Located 15 Kilometers south of the picturesque village of Mahahual, our home is the last home on the beach road to Xcalak and sits way out of view of any other homes. You will have the beach and our slice of the ocean to yourself, but if you get lonely, neighbors are just a short walk away. We also have an on-sight caretaker that you'll hardly even know is around until you need him. The home has high speed internet and cell service for all of your communication needs. Casa de Coco's living quarters are on the second floor which allows for cool ocean breezes and spectacular views. A second story balcony runs the entire front of the house for great ocean views, but if that's not enough you can take the interior stairs to the rooftop where you can view the sunset and watch the stars come out at night. The kitchen/dining/living area are an open design. The master bedroom has a king size bed and private full bath. It also has sliding glass doors that open onto the main balcony. The second bedroom has two twin beds that could be pushed together to make a double. The large main bathroom is conveniently located directly across from the second bedroom.

Downstairs is the caretakers quarters and storage. Another verandah runs along the front of the house at ground level. There is plenty of space for some alone time.

Then there's the beach! You can walk out into the ocean forever on the soft sand. There is no grass or rocks, just sand. However, please remember that the sea is a temperamental sculptress and the beach is her ever-changing masterpiece. The only thing we can guarantee is that we will keep our portion of beach as accessible and clean as mere humans can.

The house is located across the beach road from the beach, but the beach is part of the property. The traffic on the beach road is minimal, less than 6 cars a day, and will not interfere at all with your enjoyment of the beach.

Casa de Coco is off the grid in more ways than one. There are no municipal services to the property but it is serviced by an efficient and effective power system of solar panes and wind generator. We require that our guests adopt a 'beach bum' attitude and leave the high wattage blow dryers at home. There is also no air conditioning but we think that you'll find the ocean breezes more than adequate. Although you will have more than enough water and electricity available, we do ask that you be mindful, not wasteful. Please be kind to the planet and our energy system, all of will reap the benefits.

Casa de Coco's remoteness is a huge part of her charm. You will want to prepare for your stay here by stopping in Playa del Carmen or Tulum to stock up on groceries and supplies for your stay here. Or...you can live like a local and plan your menu according to what is available at the fish market, produce stand, and tiendas in the village of Mahahual. The closest restaurant is 5 minutes away and there are several restaurants and bars strung along the beach road, you can bar-hop your way into town and back again.

Robinson Crusoe and Swiss Family Robinson learned to get along with the creatures of the jungle, and, here at Casa de Coco, you'll be given that opportunity too. They were here first and we consider ourselves lucky to get to hang out in their backyard for a little while. There are ways to limit their numbers and keep most of them outside where they belong, but you will probably make the acquaintance of a few. Wear insect repellant and shake your shoes out before you put them on and you'll be just fine. To enjoy the beauty of fireflies lighting the jungle night and the songs of tropical birds in the morning, you gotta learn to put up with some of their ugly cousins.

About Mary Reid

We are old sailors that washed ashore on the Yucatan Peninsula after 12 years of living on a sailboat. In 2009 we bought a house on the Gulf of Mexico in the fishing village of Chelem, but we missed the Caribbean so when we saw Casa de Coco for sale we jumped at the opportunity.

Mary Reid purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Reid chose Mahahual

Ahhh...Mahahual and Ahhh...the magnificent Caribbean water. Nuff said.

What makes this house unique

Casa de Coco really is away from it all. We hope it stays that way, but we can't guarantee it. So you better hurry down before everyone else finds out about it.

Great house, nice beach, amazing stars

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It is in a secluded, very quiet area. The beach is great - we had a lot of fun boogie boarding, relaxing on the beach, walking. The house is comfortable and spacious. The caretaker is very friendly, helpful and attentive. At night you can watch the stars from the roof - an absolutely amazing view. The town is just a short drive away if you want to eat out, shop for gifts, etc.

Casa de Coco

  • 5 of 5

The property is in excellent condition making it a carefree stay. Caretaker on site tended to any property related chores that may arise, kept the beach nice and such. The location is nice and quiet, yet easy into town. Wifi was good, was import as our daughter "home schools" on the Internet.

The perfect choice for our family

  • 5 of 5

Ours was a family vacation with a 10 year old and 2 cocker spaniels. This was the ideal house for us. The house is secluded on a deserted strip of gorgeous beach which was perfect for family bonding and letting our dogs run wild. This beach is perfect for swimming and body surfing. The winds were high the week we were there so snorkeling was not an option as the waves were very big and the current too strong. On the flip side, strong winds meant the house stayed cool day and night with no need for air conditioning. We slept comfortably. The photos of the house are accurate and the views, once you arrive, are to die for. Josue, the caretaker, kept the beach in front of the house clean and was always available when we needed something - and invisible when we didn't. We LOVED this house and would certainly stay here again. We want to give a big THANK YOU to the pet-friendly owners for allowing ALL of our family to enjoy their beach home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, Amy and Victor and the "whole" family. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Casa de Coco. The waves at our end of the beach can get a little bouncy later in the day, which always gives us a great excuse to head into town for a cold one and some great snorkeling and kayaking or paddle boarding in harbor there. We'll be waiting for your return.

Car: necessary

Casa de Coco is located 15 km south of the village of Mahahual and you can be as busy, or not, as you want to be. Spend Day One just on the beach reading, swimming and strolling, maybe wander down to Almaplena Beach Resort for lunch or a late breakfast. The next day hop into the car and head to Tulum, 2 hours away, to visit the ruins or checkout their busy beach scene, or maybe even play some golf. Day 3, take a trip into Chetumal, the capital of Quintana Roo, for some retail therapy at the mall, maybe stop off at Lake Bacalar, Lake of the Seven Colors, on the way home. Spend the next day close to home, maybe wander into Mahahual to sip margaritas at a beachside bar while you watch the cruise ship passengers scurry back and forth for the few hours they are ashore. You'll just sit back and smile, you get to stay
