“We have traveled extensively and this was by far one of our greatest trips! Steve and Lindell were amazing. Beautiful accommodations, wonderful salt water pool, wonderful views. I really enjoyed the location on the island: away from the “ hub bub” but close enough to get anywhere. Taxis are 100 pesos no matter where you go and I do recommend the freedom of a golf cart for several days. We will definitely be back!”

It’s really a gem
“Truly a lovely place on the bay looking across to Cancun. Away from the hustle of El Centro but a short taxi ride away it’s a calm spot to really relax and enjoy the pool, sit on a beach chair, go for a swim in the bay or just read a book. The owners are absolutely wonderful people and have been on the island for decades. You’ll love them. The casitas are perfect, everything you need and nothing you don’t. The bed is extremely comfortable and air conditioning is a nice touch although we really never used it, preferring to sleep with the large sliding door open and the screen in place and enjoying a gentle breeze from the ceiling fan. I’m looking forward to coming back to Villa Makax and it will be my first choice as a place to stay on the island. It’s really a gem.”

Another Great stay!
“We have been to Villa Makax a few times now and love it. It is always very quiet and peaceful, which is just what we look for on a get-away trip. We go up to town for some entertainment and nightlife but are glad to get back to a heated pool and beach that are never crowded because of the limited number of guests. Juan and Serviana do a great job. And it is always fun to see Steve and Lindell.”

Beautiful and Quiet, What more do you need?
“Villa Makax is an amazing piece of property located on a very nice stretch of beach in Isla Mujeres facing Cancun. The pool is the perfect size to relax in and it is crystal clear. The compound and casa’s are super clean and have everything you need to enjoy just a few days or an extended vacation. The beach is very quiet, you can sit in private beach chairs and watch the boats sail by down the coastline. Steve and Lindell are wonderful people who have created a very special spot. A wonderful peace of paradise to relax and meet new friends. We will definitely return to this amazing property.”

“Our experience at this property was nothing short of magnificent. We were one of two couples on the property for the week. We had ocean views from the pool or the palapa on the beach. We rented a golf cart and had our own island excursions when we chose and enjoyed the property at our leisure. The host, Steve, was attentive when necessary and respectful of our privacy as well. It was just the experience we were looking for.”

Far exceeded my every expectation, nothing short of paradise!
“Private beachfront, spectacular views, inviting saltwater pool, wonderful host and hostess. Villa Makax is truly a gem on this treasured island. We woke each morning to the sounds of rustling palm leaves, tides lapping against the shoreline, and the serenade of melodious song birds. We began each day with long strolls along the beach, followed by sipping coffee while swinging in a hammock chair suspended from our beach-front porch. For breakfast, we dined el fresco in the shade of one of several palapas on simple meals prepared in our kitchenette. Our days were filled lounging, reading, and swimming at the many beautiful beaches on Isla Mujeres and at the salt water pool on the premises, touring the island, exploring shops, sipping cocktails and dining. It was a nice little slice of paradise! Many thanks to the proprietors, Steve and Lindell.”

“Had a fantastic time! We wanted a quiet, relaxing vacation to soak in the beautiful Island views and recharge. Well we accomplished that 🙂 A wonderful location, very serene with just the sound of the waves… and then a few party boats dock to the left of the villas which adds to the day with just the right amount of people watching… perfect:) Highly recommend… all the reviews are spot on. Will definitely go back!”

“The property is simply perfect – tucked away and yet a quick walk to local beach restaurants and town. Steve is most hospitable and friendly and we couldn’t have asked for anything more while there. Hope to be back!!”

“We spent two wonderful weeks here. Great room with fully equipped kitchen, made breakfast every morning. A few restaurants within walking distance. Downtown a 100 peso taxi ride away. Pool is great, super views from the property. The hosts are friendly and very knowledgeable about the island. The dog, Lassie, will adopt you, but will want treats.”
“My husband and I had a wonderful vacation at Villa Makax. We stayed in the Casita Grande. We had a golf cart arranged for our stay and it worked out wonderfully. We are familiar with the Island and getting around is safe and not a problem. Steve and Lindell were wonderful right from the beginning of our booking. There is also a friendly couple who are caretakers. And of course Lassie is a lovable pet who loves treat when she greets you. We had plenty of privacy and took advantage of the beach area and the pool, Wonderful relaxing spot on such a beautiful island.”
“Steve & Lindell’s property is simply AMAZING! We feel beyond fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay here. Beautiful beach front property with plenty of new loungers/chairs for guests. A salt water pool which is immaculate at all times. Grounds that are clean and well manicured. Very friendly staff and gracious & polite owners who are willing to assist you. The guest houses are very clean and possess everything you will need for any length of stay! This is the perfect location that is very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of town, yet not far at all from all Isla has to offer. SUPERB location with sunsets every evening. We truly can’t say enough about this special place. We will definitely return to Steve & Lindell’s wonderful spot! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property with Tom & I! We miss it already!”

Incredibly relaxing vacation
“Steve and Lindell have created a quiet and comfortable paradise to relax and recharge. The views are stunning, villas are clean and well equipped, grounds are immaculately manicured. Can’t quite find the words to describe how blessed we are to have spent a week at Villa Makax. Thank you Steve and Lindell! We will be back”

If you were looking for a sign to book, THIS IS IT!!!
“Truly don’t know where to start, we had the opportunity to travel anywhere we wanted, and when we saw Isla and this listing, it was decided at once. And there were NO REGRETS to be had. I can’t speak highly enough about Steve, Lindell and the property. The photos don’t do it justice… it’s breath-taking. If you were looking for a slice of heaven, local recommendations, and peaceful beach with a killer view of the sunset… go ahead and just hit book now! We are planning our trip back, and we will never settle for less than Villa Makax! Thank you again Steve and Lindell, you two really have made the most grand escape from reality. See you soon!!”
— Allison F.
“This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in years. Our Villa was wonderful! The view from the pool was spectacular and having our own palapa to watch the sunset was spectacular! Juan was very helpful when we arrived, within 30 minutes he had a golf cart for us, which I highly recommend if you come here you rent a golf cart. I am already planning my return trip!”
