A wonderful week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two children and I had a great time at Casa Cereza. Sabine is so nice and willing to help in any situation. She made all our arrangements, including transport to and from Cancun, had our golf cart waiting, lined up individual boat trips for us with people she knows and got us the best prices. Her cafe is wonderful and she packed delicious picnics for us on home-made bread. I highly recommend the quail egg omelet, from Sabine's backyard quails. There is horseback riding just a couple of properties down the beach, and Alejandro and Dora (horse owners) are super nice. We really enjoyed a boat trip with a friend of Sabine's; first we fished and then he made ceviche with the fish we had caught - the most delicious meal ever!

Perfectly Off the Beaten Path

This upstairs apartment is a charming 2 BR + full kitchen that was built in the style of traditional palapa architecture. If you need A/C, this is not your place. If you are looking for an experience in a very clean, traditional-style place, though, THIS IS your place. The table on the nice wrap around deck has an ocean view, the master bedroom has its own private balcony and the fantastic, full-shade lounger/hammock beach area is 18 steps away. After hunting the length of the island, her beach was the best on the island -- way better than the opposite-end, high-volume area offers where the Gulf Stream forces flotsom and trash up to cover the sandy areas. While this area is quiet and secluded it was an easy 5-7 minute stroll to town, to beach bars in the marina area or to the wide variety of restaurants available in town. If you want a taxi back, they were cheap (40 pesos) and normally easy to find. Of course for a leisurely breakfast or happy hour drinks, Sabine's on-site Cafe del Mar was pretty nice as well.

As a 5 or 6 time VRBO user, I was a bit skeptical about having an on-site owner...boy was I wrong. She was wonderful hostess who never steered us wrong. Whether recommending shopping places or restaurants, having local advice was awesome. I highly recommend staying here if you are visiting the lovely Isla Holbox.

I also recommend 100% DEET insect repellent if you plan on being out after dark when the breeze slows down. I do not think I can blame the mosquito bites on the property, and Sabine warned us early about them. They are not as bad as some place like Bonaire, but they are certainly as bad as Florida/Louisiana/Texas Gulf Coast areas. Happily, every opening in the house has a tight screen in place to keep the critters out.
