             We invite you to rent our vacation home at the breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean coast of South Quintana Roo (Costa Maya), Mexico. Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas is located close to the fishing village of Mahahual. It is a tranquil place far from mainstream tourism and full of options for discovery, adventure and relaxation. Enjoy activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, beach combing, or bird watching. You also can undertake wildlife excursions or visit ancient Mayan pyramids.

Downstairs dining area. Note the large arched mahogany windows, which have been custom-build by an artist-carpenter from Chacchoben and are a special feature of our house.

The downstairs dining area extends into the living area. The build-in sofa can be used as a bed for an extra guest.

Downstairs kitchen area. The kitchen is equipped with a propane cook-top, a gas refrigerator, and cabinets with all the essential kitchen ware including a mechanical fruit press for preparing fresh orange juice and 5-gallon jugs with purified drinking water (provided free of charge).

The sunrise over the Caribbean Sea is spectacular and can be enjoyed from our large sea-side balcony almost every morning.

 

The balcony (here seen from the rooftop patio) is a favorite place for hanging out in hammocks and catching a fresh sea breeze during hot afternoon hours. It is also a great place for an unforgettable moonlight dinner. The balcony is accessible independently from both bedrooms and is shaded by a palm-thatched roof.

Stairs from the balcony lead to the rooftop patio.

The rooftop patio offers panoramic Caribbean views. It is ideal for tanning during the day (nude sun-bathing possible here) and for spectacular stargazing during the night (hence the name of the house).

Side view of the house with ground-level terrace. We take most of our meals here.

Downstairs bathroom. This is a complete bathroom with warm water shower and toilet. It has a beautiful hand-painted Talavera Ceramic sink. Our snorkeling gear (masks, fins, snorkels) is stored in this bathroom and can be used free of charge.

This rustic spiral staircase connects the two levels of the house. It was crafted around a tree trunk by a local artisan-carpenter and is made from tropical hardwood. The iguana clinging to the trunk is not a visitor from the jungle, but a ceramic sculpture!

Bedroom 1 upstairs. The double-sized bed is set up with a pavilion-style mosquito net, which can be lowered in case a bug penetrated the window screens. A roll-out bed for one person (small adult or child) is hidden below the double bed.

Detail of spiral staircase from upstairs. The steps are made from Catalox, which is a beautiful two-colored hardwood native to the Costa Maya. Don’t worry about the tree frog on top of the trunk. It’s also a ceramic sculpture.

Upstairs bathroom. This is a complete bathroom with warm water shower and toilet.

Bedroom 2 upstairs. Below the double-sized bed is hidden a second single-person roll-out bed. Using the two roll-out beds increases the capacity of the upstairs bedrooms from 4 persons to a total of 6 persons.

Bedroom 2 upstairs. Early morning view from the bed. No wakeup call needed to get up...

Casa del Cielo de las Estrellas beach: white coral sand and palms. Guests can enjoy our exceptionally wide private beach front (63 m/ 200 feet) exclusively.

Our beach is protected by the Mesoamerican Barrier reef. It breaks the waves and blocks sea currents. This makes swimming very enjoyable, even for a beginner.

Outdoor grill on the beach. We have plenty firewood for preparing coals for the grill.

Our beach palapa, a palm leaf-thatched sun shelter, is another perfect spot to hang out (literally) and to enjoy a cool cerveza.

The low wave action of the Costa Maya coast provides good sea kayaking conditions. We have three kayaks and life vests of various sizes that can be used with no charge. The kayaks are perfect vehicles to get quickly to the barrier reef.

Our beaches are a Sea-Bean collectors paradise. Sea-Hearts, Hamburger Beans and Saddle Beans are very abundant, but you will also find Mary’s Bean and other rarer Sea-Beans species. For more Sea-Bean pictures click:

Breathtaking seascapes in swimming distance.

Our area is arguably the finest snorkeling site in the Mahahual region. For more snorkeling pictures use this link: : http://picasaweb.google.com/jungrudolf/MahahualSnorkeling#

Morning view of the house from our waterfront. Instead of converting our beach into a sand desert– unfortunately the common practice at most beach properties– we landscaped our beach by retaining and planting native salt-tolerant plants that interlace in large patches open sand areas. These patches are not only much more beautiful, but also prevent erosion and provide diverse habitats for beach-dwelling animals.

Shore-fishing at our beach is seasonally very good. We catch mostly snappers and occasionally jacks and barracudas. For more information  click here .
