About Megan Vali

I reside in California, few years ago my friend of mine and I decided to visit Island of Hol-box. Our friends had visited and now they had build a house there. Both of us felt in love with this Island. It's secluded at the same time has most hospitable people great restaurants and night life. We decided to look for a piece of land to build our dream beach house. That dream came through May of 2012.

Megan Vali purchased this house in 2012

Why Megan Vali chose Yucatan

Owning a beach house has been my dream since I was 6 years old. I would like to offer this house to wonderful people around the world so I can share this amazing experience with them.

What makes this house unique

Brand new three bedrooms, three baths with pool and Jacuzzi. Walking distance to the plaza and restaurants. Water sports activity next door. WiFi, Full kitchen.

Casa Darya is fabulous!!!! Truly as described. Island paradise. Nice private beach with chairs and cushions. Large, clean house and everything worked (coffee, microwave,, DVD, and, ac). Great privacy. Few steps down beach for great lunch and short walk to awesome breakfast/lunch. Easy walk along the beach to town! It was great to arrive to ice in the freezer. Just a fantastic week. Great experience with owner communication. Don't hesitate! Book now. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our annual family vacation including our 2 adult kids and their friend could not have been more perfect at Casa Darya. Extremely comfortable! Air conditioning was much appreciated. The beach is so beautiful and sandy and clear that even I, a person who doesn't often swim in the ocean, spent most of my time in the ocean rather than the pool. We loved our neighbors in the adjoining property and actually became quite good friends with them. We had a lot in common and enjoy children so sharing the pool and common spaces with them was no problem. The property is extremely well maintained and Chuy is very responsive. We felt safe on the island, loved the live music in town and enjoyed lots of great food.

Heaven on Holbox Island - 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Darya for a week and fell in love with Casa Darya and Holbox Island.

Owner Megan is very responsive and a good listener.

Megan and her neighbor are in the process of finalizing property and guest management details - all of which worked out fine during our visit.

As advertised, the home is situated right on the beach. It is one of the best feelings in the world to listen to the sea at night and walk straight out into the sea in the morning to swim.

The property is fabulously located, a short walk from restaurants, town and the best sunset watching tiki bar in the world - Zomay Hotel.

Casa Darya is a three bedroom attached condo.

The Master Bedroom has a beautiful sea view. The closets are plentiful and there is a small safe for passports etc. in the Master Closet area.

The other two bedrooms are beautifully appointed, simple and very comfortable.

AC in the house and each bedroom is excellent !!!!!

The kitchen comes well stocked with silverware, cookware, pots and pans.

We did cook in a couple of times but the restaurant choices on the beach and in Holbox town are reasonably priced and really excellent.

The quality of the food is surprisingly good on Holbox Island. We loved lunch at Villa Flamenco's and enjoyed excellent dinners in several of the towns restaurants, including the very progressive Restaurante Milpa.

We walked for miles each day along the beach and found new places to stop and explore every day.

Holbox is a throwback in time in that the Islanders and visitors seem to happily co-exist with a minimum of fuss or bother.

Casa Darya is blessed with a very resourceful House Manager - Chuy.

I suspect that Chuy can arrange anything.............

He arranged a fabulous day fishing trip for six people. We snorkeled, caught fish and ate ceviche made from the freshly could fish. More heaven !!

Holbox is relatively raw and undeveloped.

It reminds us of Akumal in 1985.

We hated leaving....

Go now !!

More info - Getting there...........

We flew into Cancun, rented a car and drove two hours to the Holbox Ferry.

Long term Parking in the parking lots by the Ferry is very reasonable.

When you get off the Ferry, you take a golf cart taxi to the Casa - max three passengers.

When we return to Holbox, we will book a small plane for a 20 minute flight from Cancun directly into Holbox. There are several small charter plane services that cost around $450 - $550 for 5 passengers.

Last, take pesos. There is only one ATM on the Island.

Isla Holbox fun

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples from Canada that rented this house in January 24th 2017 and loved it. The house was great with all we needed and the location was fantastic really close to the restaurants and bars. Being able to walk out the front gate and have your own piece of beach was fabulous. The little bar next door was awesome to have a couple of drinks and enjoy the fabulous sunsets.Renting bikes was a great way to see the island. Chuy the property manager was great to help us arrange transportation and he was always checking in to make sure our stay was going well. We would recommend this rental to anyone that would like to enjoy this beautiful island. Thank you Megan for sharing your home with us and Thank you to Saraya the other owner next door that made us feel welcome and sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We would love to return one day.

Beautiful House But Less Privacy Than Expected

  • 4 of 5

I'll start by saying that I think we would have had a different experience had we stayed at the house during a different time of year when the owner wasn't hosting family for the holidays. The house was beautiful, well appointed, fairly comfortable, and situated in a perfect location on the island. What it didn't have was privacy from the house next door that shares the common outdoor spaces. Other reviewers have mentioned that it didn't seem to be a problem for them and didn't affect their stay. We felt differently about it.

The house is attached to another house that is inhabited by one of the owners of our rental house. It was the week after Christmas so she was hosting a family group from the US during the entire week we were there. They spent a lot of time out by the pool whether eating, socializing or smoking. They were friendly, quiet, and respectful but nonetheless out there where the patio area is not that large. As a result my young teen boys used the pool much less than they would have. We would tell them to go out and swim and they would say no because the neighbors are out there.

The houses also don't have curtains on the wall of glass doors that go out to the pool so you would constantly see in each others' homes. There was a steady stream of visitors that week... whether friends, staff, or workers... and everyone can see what you are doing inside the property.

As far as the house in concerned, it is well equipped. Some bonuses are filtered water in the kitchen, strong air conditioning units in each room, gorgeous views from the master bedroom balcony, and beautiful bathrooms. The only surprise was that you cannot flush toilet paper in the toilets due to it being on septic.

The best part about this rental is the location. It is within easy walking distance to the center of town, a few steps away from a fabulous tiki bar where it is the custom to watch the sunset, and a few steps away from a number of great little restaurants on the beach where we ate our lunches daily. The beach in front of the house is not large as in some other parts of the island, but it is very nice and "swimmable."

In summary, I would say that this would have been a perfect stay if we would have had the house to ourselves. For the premium we paid to stay there over Christmas, I would have expected more.

Owner's Response: Happy new year Adriana I'm so glad to read your comments. Your review is one way we can address future issues. Unfortunately as you said during holiday seasons it's hard to enforce the guidelines with my next door neighbor. It's very common practice in Mexico, not to throw toilet paper down the toilet, whether you had stayed in a hotel or a house. It's due to infrastructure of the island. Wishing you and your family a fantastic 2017. Best regards Megan

Car: not necessary

Snorkeling with WHALE SHARKS makes this island unique. Very peaceful and isolated island with many water activities and great resturants
