Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I were so happy to find this place. The town is laid back, very few tourists, really gives sense of this part of the country. The house is attractive, super clean, well furnished, with satellite TV, DVD, and a complete kitchen---all we needed. The owners are nearby and couldn't be nicer, plus they are very knowledgeable about area wildlife, touring, the flamingo sanctuary, where to eat and shop. One luxurious touch is the coconut palm landscaping. The trees are huge and palm fronds waving are one of my favorite images of tropical beaches. Don't expect partying or the spring break scene. This is about bird watching, long walks on the beach, picking up shells, and sunsets over the water. Tremendous privacy in an unpretentious town.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place I've been looking for my husband and me to go and relax, enjoy the sun, warm weather and get away from our Minnesota winter. It is not a big tourist area, it is quiet and peaceful. The sun sets were beautiful and warm. Casa Del Sol is a beautiful little house, very comfortable with quality furnishings and everything you could possibility need in the kitchen, even a blender for Margaritas! The property is a beautiful palm tree park-like setting and you are just steps from the beach. The owner was wonderful, making sure we had everything we needed. She went with my husband to the meat market and to buy fresh shrimp. She even loaned us some Old Bay to cook the shrimp in. She is very friendly and gracious. There are several restaurants in town and we tried four of them and all meals were great. Great seafood!

Must see: The flamingos, Uxmal ruins.

If you are afraid to mingle with the locals, go somewhere else. Celestun is a small fishing village and the people are working class people and are very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed shopping for fresh fruit and veggies in the open air market and wine and beer in the little shop in the square. The young lady even remembered which wine my husband always bought. We do not speak Spanish and very few of the locals speak English, but we didn't have any trouble at all. This is a place we will go back to; Casa Del Sol is heaven on earth.

I wish I could live there all winter.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

At last - the paradise I had been seeking for many years - Casa del Sol! The only reservation about writing this review is the fear that all who read it will decide instantly to reserve a week (or more) there, thus crowding the calendar and depriving me of experiencing heaven again! But never mind that! This will be my gift to all of you who decide to stay at Casa del Sol. This beautiful house shares a nook with two other vacation houses (one is the owner's part-time home) on a large plot of powdery sand with nothing but swaying coconut palms, gardens, the ocean and thou. No stone is left unturned with regards to the typical comforts of a vacation house - the house is decked out with an enormous well equipped kitchen (by New York City standards!) spotless spacious living areas with chairs and sofas abound, a spacious bedroom, open sunlit interiors, roof top deck for dining or sunbathing, porch, cabana near ocean for more relaxing, wine-drinking, scrabble playing, reading and BICYCLES for the occasional spike of wanderlust. The water is warm, the beach is long for morning or evening walks, the stove works, the breezes caress, and a beautiful vacation home in harmony with the natural environment awaits those who need a scrape with paradise. I highly recommend Casa del Sol!

Celestun beachfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here three years ago, and returned for another visit this year. The owners are wonderful people, very knowledgeable and helpful. The house is attractive, clean and well equipped. We enjoyed morning coffee on the roof deck, and reading in the palapa. A great place for beach walking, sunset viewing, and just relaxing. It has only one bedroom, and a futon in the living area, so in our opinion it is best for two people sharing the large bedroom. We rented the two bikes, so it was easy to travel around to do a couple of eco-tours in Celestun. It takes 15 to 20 minutes to walk into the center of the town, either along the beach or along the road. By bike, it is about 5 to 10 minutes. People need to research Celestun, to know if this is the spot for them. It is very quiet, with some good restaurants in the town. However, if you want a lot of tourist amenities or activities, this is not the place for you. If you want a contrast to the very touristy areas like Cancun, you'll probably love it here. We sure did!
