Our Guests Say

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.”

Peaceful Retreat

“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.”

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.”

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.”

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!”

Wonderful Villa

“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!”
