Casa Cereza is a wooden/cement/palm roof house with 2 floors. The first floor apartment is surrounded by a terrace on three sides with a lovely seaview. There is a big spacy living room with a typical Mexican kitchen which is fully equipped.

The masterbedroom(kingsize) is very comfortable and like all the other rooms in the house natural ventilated with windows all around. A little private terrace makes part of the sleeping room.

Downstairs is a independent apartment where the owner lives. The house is situated in a lovely garden in front of your own lonely beach, near to the village(10 min walk) but far enough to desconnect and enjoy complete tranquility.

About The Owner

Sabine and her son Noe Mixtli. I am from Austria, Noe was born in Mexico and had the big adventure to grow up on Holbox Island. We built our lovely home which we would like to share with you, slowly and over years, that's why it came out so special. We continue traveling, going her and there, but our home and base is Isla Holbox with its charming people. They make you feel part of them, they make you feel home and in family. The atmosphere and the rhythm is difficult to describe, so come and see!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose El Cuyo

The reason why we got stuck on this charming island: so many things, the nature-beauty of this place, the beauty of the people, no traffic, no roads, no shoes!, quietness, nice beach-bars, the best food all over the world, very good restaurants and always a lot of things to do....

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was so wonderful. A really charming house full of nice details. In the night the full moon was going down in the see. Our sleep was deep becoause of the sound of the waves.

Lovely, peaceful, relaxing and authentic.

  • 5 of 5

You can't experience Holbox without staying at Casa Cereza. Such an experience when life at home is overwhelmingly busy. Much more spacious and beautiful than pictures can provide. Sabine is so wonderful and welcoming, always offering help. Her cafe in the garden downstairs was one of our favorite spots to eat. Amazing food with homemade bread and jam (especially loved the Mexican omlet). Fantatic coffee, tea and smoothies. One day she even made us sandwiches for our room because we didnt want to walk to town.

Speaking of town, it is a short walk away, far enough to be peaceful at night and the houae comes with it's own beach chairs and cabana! The beach and sunset are amazing. It was a family vacation to never be forgotten.

Un verdadero sueño!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a most perfect and truly "dreamy" visit at Sabina's house and Isla Holbox. Like others, I am reluctant to say anything since we want to keep this gem all to ourselves. The home was roomy, breezy and spacious and having a kitchen and a fridge was a huge bonus. Sabina's downstairs cafe is a marvelous spot for breakfast and lunch - healthy and tasty.

Near everything in town (but not too close) and the gorgeous beach just 50 meters away...

We are already going to book for next year.

Gracias por todo!

we spent 5 days in casa cereza with 2 young kids

  • 5 of 5

great experience. the beach is just beautiful, great for kids. the apartment is perfect and very clean. we were able to eat at night indoors. to go to town you have a nice walk on beach. Sabine also has a café downstairs which is very good, and fresh. We defiantly encourage families to go there. Sabine was nice to organize the taxis to come from Cancun back to Valladolid.

Casa cereza makes holbox

  • 5 of 5

Come to holbox for the beach and the charming village town. Stay because case cereza and Sabina make your vacation memorable. Love the fresh juices and quail eggs for breakfast, the fresh baked bread and jam, the lovely garden surrounding the house and the beach is footsteps away. The house is well equipped, spacious and has great breezes and fresh air to keep you cool. The four of us (two teenagers) had a great stay over Christmas and enjoyed renting bikes, a boat tour to the islands and dinners in town. Sabina took great care of us!

Beautiful Casa, Beautiful, Beach, Beautiful People

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter (2 years old) and I needed a much needed break after a lot of grief in our family. This place was perfect! Our airline lost our luggage and Sabine was so gracious to get on the phone to get it to us. After a few days it arrived with her help. She helped set up all our transportation which was great since we were traveling with a 2 year old. Casa Cereza is on the quiet end of town and there is a place that is right on the beach for you to take all your cares away. We loved staying here. It was clean, calm and beautifully built. And you have a healthy restaurant to eat at down stairs with fresh eggs from Sabine's quails (which are delicious). When we come back, this is our place to go! I would recommend it 100%!!
