Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas (you find details also if you search for it on the internet) is a charming beach front villa located just 5 miles south of Mahahual. It is a tranquil place far from mainstream tourism and full of options for discovery, adventure and relaxation. Enjoy activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, beach combing, or bird watching. Our two-story vacation home has been tastefully decorated and furnished and is designed to accommodate up to six guests. It is rented as a single unit only. You never have to share our exceptionally wide private beach (210 feet) or its amenities with other guests! This is an eco-friendly, self-sustained house.

It is a tranquil place far from mainstream tourism and full of options for discovery, adventure and relaxation. Enjoy activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, beach combing, or bird watching. Our two-story vacation home has been tastefully decorated and furnished and is designed to accommodate up to six guests. It is rented as a single unit only. You never have to share our exceptionally wide private beach (210 feet) or its amenities with other guests! This is an eco-friendly, self-sustained house. Our water supply is maintained by rainwater collection and electricity is generated with a solar-electric power generation system. The villa sits sea-side on an extraordinarily large (1.5 acre) and delightfully landscaped beach lot. It is very secluded and private. The caretaker casita, with the caretaker family providing assistance and 24/7 security, is in 150 feet distance from the main house and neighboring lots are not developed. For additional privacy and security access to the property has been restricted with lateral fences and a fence at the beach road. The beach road does not cut through, but is set behind the property in 200 feet distance from the main house. The house has two full bathrooms with warm water showers. Downstairs the house features a large kitchen- living-dining area with a fully equipped kitchen. A beautiful catalox (a native hardwood) dining table and rustic spiral stairs around a hardwood tree trunk set special accents to this room. Custom-build very large arched mahogany windows open to the ocean side for unobstructed views and optimal ventilation. The tiled front porch is shaded by the balcony and is our favored breakfast spot. A seating area behind the house is accessible through the back door. Here you can fully enjoy the beauty of our lush tropical garden and jungle park and observe birds and other animals. It also provides tranquility and shade during exceptionally windy days. Upstairs our villa features two cooling-fan equipped bedrooms, each with a double bed and a roll-out bed and one of the rooms with an additional couch. A small locker room for storage of suitcases and cloths also contains a security lock box for valuables. Independently from both bedrooms, you can step out onto our spacious shaded balcony, which is a favorite place for hanging out in hammocks and catching a fresh sea breeze during hot afternoon hours. It is also a great place for an unforgettable moonlight dinner and to enjoy the spectacular sunrise over the Caribbean Sea. Stairs from the balcony lead to the tiled rooftop patio, which offers panoramic Caribbean views. It is ideal for tanning during the day (nude sun-bathing possible here) and for fantastic stargazing during the night (hence the name of the house). Our private beach has many fruit-bearing coconut palms. String up a hammock between palms or at a Sea Grape tree and relax from the intense rays of the Caribbean sun. Instead of converting our beach into a sand desert– unfortunately the common practice at most beach properties– we landscaped our beach by retaining and planting native salt-tolerant plants that interlace in large patches open sand areas. These patches are not only much more beautiful, but also prevent erosion and provide diverse habitats for beach-dwelling animals. The drop off at our beach is very good and in contrast to other Costa Maya beaches you don’t have to wade through very shallow water for hundreds of feet before you reach greater water depths, but you can swim and snorkel directly from the beach. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef in front of Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas is arguably the finest snorkeling site in the Mahahual region. Minimal tide action, the lack of currents and of high waves provide for safe swimming and kayaking conditions, even for beginners. In addition to free bottled water, weekly changed fresh towels and linens, propane gas, board games, CD player, etc., we also offer special amenities to make a beach vacation enjoyable: These include the free use of kayaks, life vests and snorkeling gear, an outdoor grill and the availability of a large and diverse library that includes a comprehensive collection of Caribbean and Mexico nature guides. Last but not least, our very friendly caretaker will be always happy to assist with your problems, questions and special needs and to help making your visit at Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas an unforgettable pleasant vacation.

About the neighborhood
Our charming beach villa sits very secluded and private directly on our exceptionally wide (210 feet) private beach. The enchanting fishing village or Mahahual is only 5 miles north of us. We are far enough from town to not be bothered by town tourist activities but close enough for convenient shopping and restaurant access. Our very large property (1.5 acres) is fenced at 3 sides and the caretaker family (in a separate casita) is living on the property 24/7 for your security. Cars can be parked off-road inside the property. The entry airport for traveling to Mahahual is Cancun and then car rental is best (4 hr drive from Cancun). Public transportation is available through the ADO Mexican bus-line service. We also can arrange pick-up from Cancun airport for a reasonable price.
How to get there
Entry airport is Cancun. It is best to rent a car and to drive the 320 km (200 miles) from Cancun to Mahahual (3.5-5 hrs, depending on how fast you drive). From Mahahual you take the beachroad south of Mahahual and drive 8.5km (counted from the light house in Mahahual), where you will find the entry gates of the property. The caretaker has the house keys and will be meeting guests. He is living in a small house on the property next to the entry gates.
