Overview

El Cuyo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms , (Sleeps 4), sea view, surrounding terrace, privacy

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. The second bedroom(queensize) is full of light and color and offers lovely seaview from bed! The bathroom is connected with living room and sleeping room. You can see the sunset from your hammock!

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 Yucatan

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.

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%!!

Feeling at home during the holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two daughters (14 and 16) and I loved Isla Holbox and Casa Cereza. The Isla has a relaxed atmosphere also as limited cars (only for construction work) are allowed. We relaxed, swum and rented a golf car and bicycles to explore the Isle. To be honest: the golf car was more appreciated by our daughters!

The Case itself is very authentic, clean and space full. It is located a quite part of a quite Isla (we also visited Isla Mujeres and Akumal, which are much more touristic). We very much liked the breakfasts, lunches and especially the smoothies prepared by Sabine helped by her Austrian friend.

Staying at a place like Sabine’s is totally different from staying at a hotel/apartment because you get personal attention, insider tips and help in arranging practicalities like bicycles, transportation. We felt at home but also very much on a holiday.

If you look for the above described: we definitely recommend Sabine's place.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to promote Casa Cereza and Isla Holbox as much of the charm of this place lies in its hidden exposure. However, I cannot help but let others know that are looking for a few days or weeks in a quiet paradise that this is one of those places. Casa Cereza has all of the necessary amenities, but without the corporate polish of a 5-star accommodation. The homespun hospitality and construction add to its charm. The rooms are spacious and the large deck is perfect for reading, sitting, working online or just listening to the breeze in the palms, the birds singing, or the quiet. We will return when we again have the need to unwind.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
