With my family, we rented one of Ginny's villas for 2 weeks. It was gorgeous. The lake is beautiful, calm, the plants and flowers produce a stunning view we could enjoy from the balcony. Down the stairs, we had access to a palapa to feel the breeze, swim and relax in a hammock. The kids enjoyed the kayaks. Ginny and her team are most welcoming, always willing to help. Ginny also has a treasure library of thousands of DVDs we could borrow to watch movies at night. The villa is comfortable. There is everything you need to cook, warm water (although with the heat we didn't really use it, preferring cold showers), a fan and good beds and screens to have mosquito-free nights. It was simply a very relaxful and serene vacation for us. thank you Ginny.

Where to begin to describe our visit to Pehaltun. Ginny was an incredible host who was so flexible and accommodating. In fact, we were supposed to stay elsewhere but unfortunately our host was unwell, however our original hosts got in touch with Ginny to ask if we could stay. Last minute, she let us stay in her house, which was super comfortable and Ginny made us feel so at home as if we'd known each other for years. Furthermore, Ginny has some of the best recommendations for places to eat in Bacalar. On our first night we went out to dinner with Ginny to Bote De Leche, which has the most amazing garlic bread you will ever taste! At Pehaltun, you also have access to your own private dock which is on the property. This was an incredible addition to property. It was far enough out that you could dive off the dock and you can also chill in the hammocks to cool off from the Mexican heat. Ginny also put us in touch with some amazing people from the community who were able to take us wake-boarding. Basically, Ginny knows pretty much everybody in town and connects you to whatever you need. You even have access to the canoes and kayaks which Ginny has on the property, we decided to take the canoe out on many occasions for a sunrise paddle and even to El Rancho's for lunch which is 15/20 minute canoe from the property. Ginny was so kind and let us stay an extra night even though this was not planned. This was the best part to our trip to Mexico and we are definitely coming back to Bacalar in the future and will hope to see Ginny again and most definitely to taste one of her amazing grilled cheeses. Thank you so much for letting us stay and I recommend to all to go and check this place out for yourselves.

This was the most beautiful place we stayed at during our road trip around Mexico. So peaceful and relaxing but with your own car you are in downtown Bacalar within minutes. Beautiful garden, your own dock and hammocks down by the lake, a terrace overlooking the turquoise water and a stylish „villa“ with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Ginny is a charming and generous host who helped us a lot when our baby got sick. This is probably the best option when in Bacalar!

Pehaltun I placed 4km outside the town in the jungle. Pehaltun is not a luxurious place but the place is absolutely fantastic and the host, Ginny, is very caring and friendly. We stayed here for 1 week with our children (3 and 6yr). We loved the privacy and nature that this place had to offer. Go to the lake in the morning for a morning swim while enjoying your coffee and the Magnificat sunrise. Pehaltun got my best recommendation.

Our stay in Villa Pehaltun was amazing. My husband booked a 3 night stay in the Palapa for our family . The view from the Palapa is gorgeous and fortunatly it was a bit windy during our stay so the breeze kept the Palapa fresh 24/7. We would get up very early every morning to go to Bacalar local produce market to get fresh fruit and other goodies, go back to the villa and have our private breakfast in our terrace. The view is breathtaking so we thought it would have been a shame to not use it. Our hosts Lise and Steve made great recommendations of the sightseeing excursions but we enjoyed the premises so much, we didn't want to leave. Our 9 year old daughter LOVED playing with the dogs at all times, she even had a swim with the youngest puppy. We used the canoe several times to explore on our own, it was kind of windy but we still enjoyed it. The dock us very nice and we were lucky to be the only ones in the Villa for the first 2 days so it was just for the 3 of us and even after that, we never crashed into the other guests because their are always other things to do. Sunrises are amazing a if you go a bit further in with the kayaks or canoe you get to see the sunset, just majestic. Lise and Steve were super nice and everything is set just right in the Palapa so you feel comfortable at all times. I highly recommend Villa Pehaltun and we are definitely coming back!
