I feel like I stayed in the very best place that Holbox Island has to offer. The accomodations were amazing. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. They have thought of every little detail that you could imagine. In addition to total comfort, and great location, the owners, John and Mandy, really make this place exceptional. They are amazingly kind,... More

We had 3 exzellent days at Mandy's and John's little paradise! The sea view suite was amazing and everything was made with so much love! Mandy and John are really great hosts! I can recommend this little paradise to everyone who wants to spend some free and relaxing time within an unique environment and atmosphere!

What a lovely adventure we had getting to, staying at, and saying good~bye to Holbox. It is a 4 hour journey from the Cancun Airport, but well worth it!! We were shuttled to the ferry and then road a "taxi" to our "home away from home" on white sand roads in the dark. We were greeted by John, our kind... More

They welcomed us with open arms upon our arrival 10 days ago and welcomed us home to Isla Holbox. Whatever information or help you... More

Mandy and John, you guys rock! My husband, 2.5 year old and I had an amazing time. The location of your apartments are perfect distance from the Beach (20 seconds) and town (3 minutes). Mandy and John were incredibly accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay special. The beach is perfect for small children, beautifully soft... More

Holbox is an amazing Island with a very laid back vibe and change of pace from the all inclusive Cancun scene. John and Mandy have created the perfect balance of comfortable accommodation and nature. There are only three rooms on the property.....two upstairs suites with one king size bed each, huge terrace overlooking the ocean and sunset, great bathroom and... More

What a beautiful setting. A 2 bedroom apartment with kitchen, the sea as your playground, the best spot in Holbox to watch the sunset and most of all, marvelous hosts! We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute! The place is well kept and clean. The breakfasts offered are in two local restaurants with delicious food. If you are... More

First off, I fell in love with the grounds and our host, Mandy ! When your playground is the sea and it seems like it belongs to you, happiness is what you feel ! We rented (3 adults) the appartment with full kitchen and 2 rooms. We absolutely loved it, we were comfortable. Breakfast is included in the price at... More
