traveler reviews for this celestun beach house rental

Wonderful, relaxing place. We will be back!

Review submitted: February 19, 2013   Date of arrival: February 2, 2013

Celestun is a relaxed little town that welcomes tourists. The "flamingo" tours are practically mandatory and we took a tour to view the thousands of birds in the "ria" close to town. There are many restaurants along the beach with delicious fish and seafood.

The house is clean and a few kilometers outside of town. The newly remodeled bathroom was beautiful! The location is quiet, with beautiful sunsets and amazing star gazing. We enjoyed listening to the gentle waves, the birds in the morning, taking the sea kayaks out, and riding the bicycles thru town. Most of all we enjoyed doing nothing. The covered patio facing the beach is a dream come true. The sea breeze every day kept the house cool every day even when the temperatures reached 95 degrees. If I were a writer this would be a perfect location!

The property manager is now a local business man with very good English and Spanish. The owner is improving the property on a regular basis. We will be back!

The Best Holiday ever!

Review submitted: January 30, 2013   Date of arrival: December 12, 2012

My husband and I rented this house for 3 weeks in December, It was the best working holiday we have had in years. So good we decided to build our own house in Celestun. We will return to Villa Mariposa as soon as we can and until our own house is ready.
Villa Mariposa is well appointed with everything you need for cooking, it is well cared for, super clean and a comfortable home whose pictures do not do it justice. It would easily accommodate 4 people (or more in hammocks!). The caretaker was friendly and very helpful. The town,a 30 minute walk from the house, has everything needed for everyday shopping and the beach restaurants are clean, there isn't much menu variety but the fish and shrimp and calamari are fresh so what else do you need? Everywhere the service is friendly. The people of Celestun really seem to welcome the tourists rather than barely putting up with them. The beach is drop dead gorgeous.
Celestun is a quiet town so if you're looking for beach games in the day time and wild nights on the town this is not the place for you.

Relaxing Vacation!

Review submitted: March 15, 2012   Date of arrival: April 2, 2011

My boyfriend and I spent a fantastic week in this comfortable little villa with a beautiful ocean view. We flew into Cancun and drove our little rental across the pennisula with no trouble at all. The house itself is clean, spacious, and very well decorated. The nearby town of Celestun is beautiful, and we were welcome at every restaurant and store we entered, even though neither of us speak any Spanish. We spent most of our week relaxing in the comfortable hammock in the house, walking up and down the beach, and took a few day trips to Merida and to some nearby Mayan ruins. The caretaker was very helpful and accessible when we needed them. I highly reccommend this little known spot of heaven to anyone who wants a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of hotels and popular "tourist" destinations. Celestun had plenty to do without having to fight any crowds! It is a beautiful place and I would highly reccomend it to anyone!
