Holbox and Villa Moopich was dreamy. Our group of 18 people ranged in age from 6 months to 70+ and Moopich was absolutely perfect for our diverse crew. The location is terrific--hard to beat a Villa with a pool in the front yard, whispering coconut palms all around, and a lovely beach a few yards beyond. The sleeping quarters are separated from the main house by a courtyard. This is terrific for a mixed group with mixed schedules. The caretakers were reliable and helpful (having a spanish speaker in your party is a plus). We were there in April, and mosquitos were minimal except on the kayak trip into the mangroves (if you try this, really discuss route with your guide--it's a very interesting trip, but our route took us 100% against current the entire way :-)--good work out...). I suggest taking along a compact speaker if you enjoy music. We bought one in the local market after some searching around. Also, rent a couple of bikes for getting around. We enjoyed Marta's cooking a couple of evenings, and wandered to local restaurants on others. One highlight was catching the local deep sea fishing contest and party. Another was adventuring out to Cabo Catoche (highly recommended although getting there can be a little choppy, it is magical). One of my favorite adventures was horseback riding. There are six horses on the entire island and one little rancherito. The sunset ride was magical. We all want to go back! Gracias y hasta la proxima!!

Four days in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were six families going for a long weekend to this amazing island. What made it the best was the house where we stayed. Perfect location far from the noise of the town but close enough to walk there. The ocean right at few steps away, all the house was clean, WiFi and AC worked well, water pressure, all those little things were good. The pool very nice and also the view and just being right there in front of the ocean. Kitchen needs some new pots and pans but nothing you can really complain about. Emilio was very friendly, responsive and looking to clarify all our questions before the trip. We are definetly coming back soon to Villa Moopich!!

Wonderful family get-away

  • 5 of 5

My blended family of nine (ranging in age from 12 to 84) stayed at Villa Moopich over the Christmas holiday. The house is beautifully situated, with views from the living space, patio and pool to the beach. It was great to have our own shared space (as opposed to sharing a lobby at a hotel) where we could hang out as a family, while having our own separate bedrooms, which are separated by a pleasant courtyard behind the living room/kitchen area. The house is very well maintained and feels spacious and private, is close enough to walk into town but far enough to feel "away from it all." We also appreciated having a kitchen where we could make shared meals when we didn't feel like going into town as a big group to find a restaurant that could accommodate us. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean, all with AC and screened porch doors that kept the mosquitos at bay. They each had their own TV's (which we didn't use) -- I appreciate that the TV in the common space has been removed so there was no temptation to turn it on and tune out when we were together as a group. The caretakers, Delio and Marta, are wonderful and warm, and were happy to buy groceries and cook for us when we requested, as well as providing daily cleaning services. It definitely helped to have one person in our party who could speak Spanish, though, as others have mentioned. Delio also took my 84-year old mother into town on his golf cart when she didn't feel like making the walk, or when the rest of us were riding our beach cruisers (which you can rent in town by the day or week -- highly recommended!) into town. We had a spectacular time on Holbox in no small part because of the comfortable and pleasant accommodations. I highly recommend this Villa for larger groups looking for a place of their own -- many thanks, Emilio!

Maravillosa Experiencia.

  • 5 of 5

Realmente lo mejor de Holbox, una casa espectacular, con 6 habitaciones de lujo. Debo agradecer por la estadía a los cuidadores Delio y Marta. UN lujo de personas. Nos hicieron sentir como en casa. Nosotros eramos 10 personas, niños y adultos y es perfecta para tanto familias con niños chicos, como para parejas.

La casa esta en la playa misma. La piscina es demasiado rica, cómoda, perfecta, con una vista soñada, y pensada tanto en adultos como en niños. A pasos del mar, por lo que da para pasar de la playa a la piscina en menos de 100 pasos.

El lugar en común; living, comedor y cocina son muy acogedores y grandes. Pasamos mañanas y noches en el lugar relajándonos y compartiendo.

Las villas están muy bien pensadas. Son aun mejores que lo que muestran las fotos. Las camas muy agradables, los baños perfectos, todas con closet amplios para la ropa, terrazas, A/C, ventiladores, TV, dos camas dobles. Perfectas.

El tiempo perfecto, y en Holbox se come muy bien!

En las tardes hay mosquitos por lo que se recomienda llevar repelente.

Lo mejor, el tíburon ballena!... el pez pre histórico con el que nos pudimos bañar!

Nuevamente agradecer a Emilio por su buena disposición a traves del proceso de arriendo de su casa!

Volveremos y de todas maneras la recomendaremos!

Nice charming villa

  • 4 of 5

The property is great and its in a very special part of the island.

Its big enough to accomodate 12 (more people could sleep but there would be no space to seat and eat at thr table so 12 its a good number)

Bedrooms are big and comfortable though I would invest in modernizing the bathrooms somehow (one on the sinks were liking and we had to have bucket under the sink the whole weekend it didnt look nice)

The social area is great, nice pool with awesome view!

Comfortable kitchen with the most amazing help! Marta and Delio! They would pamper you in any way. They cook, they organize special requests, they clean and pick up after you... Really they make everything so much easier.

I would definitively come back. Only complaints were the bathrooms and a tv on living room (I would remove it so that people can actually interact with eachother and not even have the change on turning a tv on :)

Off the beaten path Yucatan vacation

  • 3 of 5

This villa is a bit tired but the 2 live-in caretakers will take very good care of you . A few things I would share are: the 6 bedrooms are all very separate which is great for couples or older children but young children will be out of hearing and sight, the pool is not heated but is comfortable, the beach is ideal for little children, it is 2 feet deep for a long ways but adults maybe looking for waves etc, there is seaweed on the beach and no lounges, after dark raccoons come around so it wasn't pleasant eating outside. The caretakers keep the villa clean and will give you rides into town or do anything you need, they do not speak English . The restaurants in town are very laid back, fresh fish and delicious, nobody got sick. Golf cart taxis run up and down the road so there is no need to rent one. It is a 2 hour drive without stops and a 30 minute ferry to Holbox from Cancun. Ferries run once an hour. The town is really quaint and undeveloped.
