I went and saw a beautiful house this morning in Mahahual. It is a brand new house and construction has been completted. The house is Casa Mia, on Calle Caladaritas MZA. 14, Lote 22, right behind Padrinos.
Casa Mia was built by Miguel Angel Garcia, originally from Vera Cruz, and now splits his time between Canada and Mahahual. He is both a Mexican and Canadian citizen. He has a landscaping business in Vancouver, British Columbia, and spends the summers there, and build houses here in Mahahual in the winter.
He first visited Mahahual ten years ago, and liked it so much, he decided to come back. He loves the beaches here, the quiet tranquil lifestyle, the safety and the fact that Mahahual is so close to Chetumal. He decided to work in the summer in Canada, and build houses here in the winter. This is his first house he has built-in Mahahual, and it came out nice.
This spacious house has three bedrooms, and a caretakers apartment. It also has three and a half bathrooms, a swimming pool, garden, garage, all modern appliances, landscaped yard and pool area, and many more options. The kitchen has granite counter tops, and the bathrooms all have mosaic tiles.
The house is three stories, and a palapa can be added on the roof. There is a great view of the ocean, the water park, and the port from the roof. It is one of only a handful of houses in Mahahual that are three stories.
The house has open living spaces, and has ceiling fans throughout the house. Air Conditioning has not been added yet, but the house has all connections for it. All the wood in the villa is local wood, Caoba, from nearby Nobech. There are screens also throughout the house, and hurricane proof windows.
The lot is gated and walled, and has that hacienda or villa feel. There is hot water, sewage, track lighting, and cable and internet is available. The is also a laundry room, big closets with lots of storage space, and a garage to park a car. The dwelling is in a safe and secure neighborhood, with several expats on the same street. The house has all the permits, and is ready for someone to move in.
The house is a short walk to the water park and port, and is about a five to ten minute walk to the beach, and all the bars and restaurants.
This place would make a great bed and breakfast, and or, a great investment and rental property. Something comparable in Playa del Carmen or Tulum five minutes from the beach would cost you around $750,000 usd. This house is now listed at $248,000, and is a great bargain, and will do nothing but increase in the next several years with all of Mahahual’s growth.
Here are some photos I took this morning with my trusty 3gs Iphone, so keep that in mind.
This villa would make a great bed and breakfast, and there is a big need for that in Mahahual now. It is also a great investment and is one on the nicer homes in Mahahual. It is what we call here “Gringo Ready”, and will not last long.

Casa Mia: $248,000 usd with possible financing.
