Our Guests Say


“Both the owners and the caretakers made our stay here so fantastic. Not only was the property absolutely beautiful, but everyone was so helpful and friendly. This was our first time to Cancun and the Island, and they had so many great recommendations for us. Steve was also very helpful with helping us understand how to get to the property when we had multiple unfortunate flight changes that complicated things. The cottage was clean and comfortable, the view was stunning, and the amenities were perfect. Thank you for such a great stay!”

Absolute perfection!

“We loved our time here more than anywhere we have ever vacationed! We stayed in Casa Grande. It was perfectly appointed and very comfortable. The owners are extremely nice and fun to talk to. The location was perfect and close enough to La Gloria to grab food. It’s also close to Punta Sur and all the beach clubs that are close to that area. The property itself has an amazing salt water pool and an area to swim in and lay by the ocean. We highly recommend staying here!”

“Steve and Lindell were amazing. Beautiful accommodations, wonderful salt water pool, and views. We really enjoyed the location on the island, would recommend renting a golf cart.”

Great Location

“The location was perfect for us. We were looking for a secluded spot to relax and Villa Makax fit the bill. Isla Mujeres is a small island so it was easy to get to the attractions at Playa Norte but gave us a relaxing spot to get away from the crowds and spend some alone time. Steve and Lindell were terrific hosts.”

“We absolutely Loved our stay at this beautiful accommodation! It was a perfect quant bungalow by the sea! The pool was fabulous by day and the ocean was just footsteps away for sunsets! We had a kitchenette perfect for making coffee and keeping all our treats cool. The space was clean and the environment very inviting. Additionally, there is a company called ISLAMED that will come to you to process a rapid covid test which we found extremely convenient. We absolutely LOVED it here are highly recommended Villa Makax!”

Private feeling, good location

“There is no longer a quiet part of the island, but this comes closest. We especially enjoyed our shaded veranda with a great view. Steve was friendly, efficient, respected privacy, and arranged for on-site Covid testing for the trip home to US.”
