Celebrate Celestun!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house. It is a perfect place for those that want to experience Real Mexico. Beautiful home in a private setting with all the amenities. Great location for Birding. The beach is amazing and totally private. Celestun is a wonderful small town with very welcoming people. Loved the house with great views, ocean breezes and a great back deck- Outdoor grill, sea toys and Kayaks make it so easy you never have to leave home! Would highly recommend it to people who want off the beaten path, beauty and solitude. All around great rental experience from Pascal and Robbie Thanks so much!

Beautiful Home/Beautiful Beach....Would Rent Again

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I just got back from our vacation in Celestun and it was fantastic. In the past we've stayed at all inclusive resorts but never again after this. I discovered that renting a private beach house is a fun way to vacation. Its more relaxing and very private. The house was right on the beach....I mean just steps away! That was great. The property is surrounded by forest, so there wasn't a noise or privacy issue ever. The sunsets were beautiful and Debbie said this was our most romantic vacation. I'll have to agree. My favorite part was getting out in the kayaks everyday and heading down to the row of restaurants. Its fun to pull up on the beach and order a fresh squeezed OJ! The beach is the most beautiful natural beach I've ever seen. We collected some beautiful shells and ended up buying an extra bag just for shells. The house was much better than the pictures in the listing! This place was wonderful - bright airy, and the kitchen was roomy and well stocked. It was perfect for us, had everything we needed, and was very comfortable and clean. Pascal, the manager, was friendly, helped us get oriented, and gave us ideas on what sites to see. A must see is the Flamingo Tour! We really enjoyed it. We decided to hire a maid to come in mid vacation and Pascal helped us arrange that too. I will always have good memories of this vacation relaxing in a hammock under the thatched patio cover. I would stay here again and highly recommend Celestun and this beach house.

Wonderful, relaxing place. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!
