From my initial contact about this property, I was extremely impressed with the service I received but will get to that later! The house is in a great location if you're seeking peace and quiet away from what is considered the more 'crowded' area of Holbox. It's just far enough away from Centro to feel remote but close enough to walk if you don't have a golf cart/bicycle. The house is kept immaculately clean and Jesus is available to help whenever you need something (such as scheduling massages at home!) The house has 3 bedrooms which was perfect for our group of 5.Each bedroom has it's own bathroom and there's also another bathroom off the living room. Bedrooms are spacious, offer plenty of room, and the AC units work great!. The living room was a little on the small side but it wasn't an issue since we spent our time outside. While the only cooking we did was preparing guacamole, the kitchen was sizeable enough to be comfortable enough for meal prep. There are only 2 barstools in the kitchen but plenty of space to dine outside on the patio.
The only negatives I can offer on this property would be: (1) lack of beach towels. The house sleeps 10 yet we only had 4 beach towels. (2) Bath towels could be changed out during the week and also would have been nice to have wash cloths and more hand towels. (3) Hot water seemed virtually non-existent after one person showered but it was hot enough outside that a cool shower seemed nice.
The house itself needs a bit of TLC but overall we had a great stay & found it to be in good working order. We did have to shorten our stay a day because of damage that previous tenants had done to the house but Jesus went above & beyond to secure us rooms at another hotel on the island which was a minor miracle since it was Christmas and everywhere was full. Again, Jesus was available whenever we needed him to answer questions or provide anything we needed. From the initial contact, he was always very prompt with responses and that didn't change once we got there. I can't say enough good things about his ability to provide a great experience! Freddy did a great job as well!!

We loved this house ! For 3 couples the setup was very spacious - especially the size of the bedrooms. The veranda with the view and immediate acces to the ocean is simply fantastic. The only downside is the distance to the centre of the island - you need a golf cart ( or bikes ); no problem ( and even fun ) but a golf cart is not cheap ( 1000 pesos per day ) so you need to add this to your rental sum. Transportation and the excursion to the whale sharks was arranged by Holbox adventures - very smooth and easy.
8 adults + 1 baby we were very comfortable, big spacious house right on the beach, just great. Only trouble was the VERY noisy water pump on the roof which really needs fixing, it spoilt the lullaby effect of the waves... And the house is NOT waterproof, spent Xmas Eve mopping up the puddles of water pouring into the house in front of the front door and the windows during a sudden storm... mexican builders obviously forget that when it rains it POURS. Other than that had a great time ! Kitchen stuff could be renewed and gas cooker is in great need of a thorough clean up (two out of four only working)..
Wonderful trip! Rent a golf cart to get into town. Bring bug spray. One downside is someone stole a friends shoes and the bug spray we left outside on the patio table.
