.Casa Que Canta "The House that Sings" consists of two complete two bedroom homes connected together by a central courtyard and garden on the ground level and a large balcony area on the second level.

This place is absolutely amazing. Private beach, just a 10 minutes drive to the cute little town of Mahahual (good shopping, scubba diving, ect). Our Veladors (Sandra and Emanuel) took such good care of us, making us traditional ceveche and cooking us FRESH lobster caught just earlier that day. Arranging for a professional masseuse to come to the house for...

the owner, Joe is a nice enuf guy but there was some very serious issues happening during our stay at this rental home. 1. Both water heaters blew before we arrived and there was no hot water for 2 days on the one side and 3 days on the other side. 2. The pots, pans, dishes and utensils were well...

Management response:

For five years we have received nothing but excellent reviews from guests. During their stay none of the above was brought up by anyone - in point of fact when I asked how things were going those I spoke to said that other than a lot of rain they were very happy. The water heaters did go bad, however, we...

About the neighborhood
Mahahaul is the newest cruise ship destination on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. The town is small, quiet, and the beaches are some of the best in Mexico. Our villa is north of town with the reef just 200 yards out front. Fishing, diving, and snorkeling are all excellent and we offer on site guided Fly Fishing and off shore fishing. The Bonefish and Tarpon in the nearby Lakes and Bay of Chetumal are large and plentiful. Great place for a quiet get away or family vacation.
We can also arrange or provide directions to several nearby Mayan Ruins - almost never crowded and well worth seeing. Or take a day and go to Lake Bacalar - The "Lake of the seven colors" for a swim in the cenote or to do some Ziplinning.
