Paradise with an ocean view

  • 5 of 5

Possibly the best location on the beach. Your own beach, private pool and great location to downtown. The private residence is clean and safe and the host was accommodating in many ways. Isla Holbox is a quiet fishing village with none of the hustle and bustle of the more touristy locations. If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation in an ocean paradise this is the best bet.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We spend 6 days over this beautiful island with my fiance. It was one of our best vacation to date. Great peaceful getaway. We loved the house and the environment. House has beautiful clean garden and direct access to beach. French bakery nearby is great for breakfast, and you have choice of fine dining in "town" center which is like 5 minutes away. You can spend your time walking on the beautiful beach, read books laying on hamack, swim or whatever. The whole island is very "slow" like typical tropical island from your dreams.

It's like a Dream

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I read about this Island about a year ago. The magazine rated it among the best. We confirm

their opinion. We choose this offering because we wanted to enjoy peace & quiet. Our host made

us feel at home in our own separate hide away. Our walks along the secluded beaches at our door were several times a day. We had breakfast at the French bakery just up the street. The local restaurants were excellent & very affordable. We are already planning our return to Casa Tom Tom
