About the property

Casa Gonza is a brand new house right on the beach.

The house has two floors.

On the ground floor there is a large outdoor terrace, overlooking the sea. Ideal for watching the sunset or having barbecues and drinks. Inside there is a large living room, with a 68' curved UHD TV, a large dining table for 8, and an integrated open kitchen. Also on the ground floor there is a bedroom with two twin beds that can be combined to form a king bed, plus a full bathroom.

On the first floor there are three en suite bedrooms with king size beds and all of them with spectacular views of the sea.

Guest access

Guests can access the house directly by boat, by taking one of the multiple motorboats found in the Chiquila Marina. They can carry up to eight passengers with moderate luggage. The boats can drop you off on the beach directly in front of the house. The trip costs approx. U$40. It is a 15 min ride.

You can also take the ferry boat from Chiquila to Holbox. They run every 30 minutes. It is a 20 minuted ride. They usually run from 8 am to 8 pm. Once in the Holbox Marina there are many taxis that can take you to the house. An 8 min ride.

Your last option is via small plane. It is a 20 min flight from Cancun. They usually carry up to three passengers and the cost runs around U$500.

The neighborhood

Casa Gonza is located on the western part of the island. The more residential area. It is a 25 min walk down the beach to downtown or a 5 min ride by golf cart.

Getting around

If you want to go into town you will need to rent a golf cart during your stay (they run approx. U$50 per day) or use taxis. Below are the of some of the Golf Cart rental companies.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Super user friendly place just far enough from town so you feel special, yet close enough to enjoy a golf cart ride, or even 1 mile walk along the beach to get to town and restaurants. None of that is even needed if you coordinate with Gaucho and Maura to make meals for you-awesome preparation and taste make you want to just stay there for every meal. Silvia kept the place very well clean and kept every day. Hope to return soon.

Great place to stay whether with a large family or couples.

We just got back from staying in this wonderful house and we couldn’t be happier. It is literally feet from the beach where you can swim or stroll along the shore looking for shells or starfish. The house is a short ride from town, which makes it feel like it’s own paradise. Gonzalo is very attentive and helpful. He answered all our questions quickly and was great with any needs we had. The house has very large rooms and everyone had there own bathroom and ample space. When we return to Holbox we would definetly stay here again.

We stayed here for 5 days and had an amazing experience. Sylvia was in charge of cleaning, organizing taxi and was very responsive to our request. We even hired the gardener to cook us an amazing meal. We had a feast of lobster, shrimp, fish, salad that lasted us a couple of days. I would do this again for sure. Unfortunately the previous renters lost a kayak and bikes but other then that we would stay here again for sure. If you do have small kids, there is no railing around the patio, so one would need to be very careful with small children or intoxicated adults.

Fantastic property in all respects A+++

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights with 2 families, including some young children. The house is in an amazing location and very comfortable. It has most everything you will need for a great trip. We especially liked being nearby Punta Coco, a great beach on the very west side of the island. There was almost no one there and the kids loved seeing starfish, conch, crabs, fish, horseshoe crabs, and stingrays in the shallow waters. Silvia came everyday and cleaned up and addressed any small issues we might have. I suggest renting a golf cart to make getting to town and back easier, and arranging a drop off/pick up directly in front of the house by a private ferry. The owner, Gonzalo, is very responsive and helpful. 5+++ stars.
