Our Guests Say

Isla Adventures

“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!”
— Jennifer & Jim


“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!!”
— Lena M.

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!!”

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”

Absolutely PERFECT!

“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!”
— Anita L.

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.”
— Dave D.

Amazing property

“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.”
