About this listing

Secluded feeling beach bungalow just a half a block from the waves, surrounded by beautiful trees and located right in the center of town.

The space

*enjoy the use of two free beach cruisers during your stay*

Da Mon Key Jungle Bungalow is located in the center of Playa Carmen of Mal Pais yet once you walk onto the property you might feel as if you are in the heart of the jungle. The spacious and well appointed studio features a super comfy queen bed, a single bed outfitted with bunches of throw pillows to double as a "bali bed", full kitchen, private porch area with seating area, outside dining area, and a hammock, plus indoor/outdoor bathroom surrounded by tropical plants, additional outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach, gated parking & night time security guard.

The bungalow is a bit on the rustic side. Great for a couple or group of 2-3 interested in being right by a great surf spot and also in the right place for the night life. Central to great restaurants, the banks, stores & shopping.

Located on a nice size property and surrounded on two sides by another expansive property. One side has an apartment building nearby, but you won't notice that too much as it is behind the house & just a solid wall. There is a house a short distance from the bungalow, but far enough away to ensure your privacy.

As the name says we are down by the beach (1/2 block) right in the center of town, in the crossroads.

Someone will be there to welcome you and we are available at any time to help with travel plans, town advice, suggestions on what to do, see and eat, and anything else we can help with.

Guest access

The kitchen is equipped with a stove and oven, a small refrigerator, microwave, pots, pans, plates and utensils.

There is a great fan in the bungalow.

All the surrounding outdoor space is free to enjoy. The patio is privately yours as well as your separate entrance.

AMAZING!!! We stayed here for the last 3 nights of our Costa Rica adventure and loved it. Great location next to one of the best bars in town. You will feel right at home and one of the locals staying here. The families of howler monkeys in the back yard was a cool experience. Danielle was super happy to help out with any questions we had and point us in the right direction to the best places to rent surf boards and go for dinner/drinks. Could not have asked for a better place and we will definitely be going back to visit again soon.

We had a really beautiful stay insight the jungle and just a short walk away from a beautiful wave. Everything you need is in walking distance. There are really cool shops around. Only negative was, that we had some mosquitoes. I can totally recommend this place.

This place deserve a five star rating as well as the owner . Very cozy and absolutely what i was looking for , stay in a place where you can have all convenient close and be in the nature as well. Close to the beach and everything you need (grocery , restaurant , bank , stores , surf shop ,...) Danielle is a very nice host and was very fast to communicate with all of our stay. Everything was clean on our arrival and she even left us some beers in the fridge !! I highly recommend this place for anyone :)

The bungalow is lovely. We knew it was a hut and have stayed in many beach hut style places over the years all over the world so I was a bit worried before arriving as some can be uncomfortably basic but that wasn't the case at all! It is so cute - it is a simple building with outdoor bathroom but it has been furnished really nicely so it doesn't feel basic, just rustic. The outdoor space is perfect for just relaxing and its location is great, such an easy wander to the beach, all the conveniences and life of the small town are right there but you feel very secluded in the jungle garden... which even gets visiting monkeys. Danielle is a really good host, any questions or issues were dealt with quickly and she did everything to ensure we had a nice stay. We had an amazing 5 nights and would have loved to stay longer, its really good value for money and definitely my favourite place on our trip (probably one of my favourite huts ever!). Loved it!

Looking forward to hosting you!
