There is a brand new condo project just about to be completed here in Mahahual, Caban Condos. Caban Condos are being developed by Regal Properties. These brand new condos are located in the Benque Soya part of Mahahual. Benque Soya consists of the property and land from the lighthouse on the malecon down to almost the port.
I never venture much down on that side of the malecon, so I had no idea of the new luxurious condos being built there. Last week I went down to talk to the developers and look around, and they gave me a nice tour. Mike Delaire, the owner and developer, and Parrish Kondra, sales manager of Caban Condos, gave me a nice and thorough tour, and I was impressed.
The condos are located on a nice piece of land right on the water, with a beautiful view of the Costa Maya Port to the left, and the town of Mahahual to the right. There is also a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea from there.
The condos are located about 200 yards down the dirt road right in front of the lighthouse, very private and exclusive. The condos are set between the beach and the mangroves, and you are surrounded by nature. The condos are also just a short walk from the malecon, and also a short distance from New Mahahual, (Casitas as some of the locals call it), so the condos are very centrally located.
The condos are built to local regulations and specifications, and meet all the criteria set to protect the mangroves and environment here. The condos are all modern and have all the up to date amenities. I was impressed with the layout of the condos, and I especially liked the kitchen and all of the appliances. These condos also come ready to move in, from pots and pans, barbecue grill, washer and dryer, and just about everything else you need to move in.
The condos all are 2 bedroom units with a den, and are 1538 sq. ft. They all have granite counter tops, solid wood cabinets and doors, traveltine flooring, air conditioning, 6 appliances,(including a dishwasher), and all fixtures. There is also a furniture package available if you wish.
The Caban Condos are constructed to be hurricane resistant with concrete block walls and white stucco and slate tile finishing. There is a roof top terrace with an outdoor cooking area with a great view. All units also have an open air balcony to enjoy the cool Caribbean breezes, and sunrises and sunsets.
They also have the first fresh water infinity pool I have seen in Mahahual, and it is nice. There is also going to be a pool side bar and 24 hour security.
The condos start at $199,000 USD, and there is also going to be a second phase of construction. The penthouses have already been pre-sold in this phase of construction. There is also a optional rental program available, if you want to rent your condo when you are not there to make some extra income. There is going to be a big need in the near future here for nice condos to rent in Mahahual during the high season.
Regal Development also has a condo project going on at the moment in Merida, and plans to be involved more here in Mahahual, with future projects. Both Parrish Kondra and Mike Delaire are from Canada, and have started their real estate development company here in Mexico , so they are registered and comply with all the rules and regulations here in Mexico. In fact, Parrish plans to move here full time in the near future. I will write more on Regal Development and their company in the near future.
So if you are looking for a very nice condo with all the modern amenities, and a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea here in Mahahual, check out Caban Condos website at http://www.regalproperty.net/caban-condos/, or go to their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/CabanCondos.
Here is a video of Caban Condos, to give you a better idea of the project.
All construction should be complete sometime in September I was told, so they are almost ready to move in. If you are looking for something off the malecon in Mahahual, but still want to be on the water, you might want to look at these. They are far enough away from town to be away from all the hustle and bustle, and the noise, but still just a short walk or bike ride away. I really liked the layout of the condos also, and I love the balcony doors and the great view.
I just hope I get invited to swim in the infinity pool one day.
