The studio was as expected and was comfortable for our stay. Struggled on arrival as no one there to meet us, taxi driver really helpful in finding Mr Minerva. Equipment all worked well and beds comfortable. Very much appreciated the air-conditioning. Close to beach and local supermarkets. Outside area would have been excellent had there not been a building site outside working from 8 till 8 every day. Enrique to his credit was very apologetic and supportive.
Enriques Apartment is perfect when you like to cook your own meals and do not need the service of hotels. It´s only a few minutes away from the beach and from the Center.
Minerva was very helpful, she often asked if everythin is ok and if we need something.
We had a wonderful stay there and recommend it highly!
We had a great, 3-month stay in Enrique's apartment on Isla Holbox. Enrique arranged for us to meet the property's caretaker-Minerva-who gave us keys and helped us settle into the apartment. Enrique and Minerva were both exceptionally responsive before and during our stay--addressing all (minor) issues that came up.
The apartment is a perfect base for exploring Holbox. The front room is a good sized kitchen and living space. The kitchen has a full-sized fridge/freezer, electric cooktop, coffee maker and all of the dishes and pans you'd need. The back of the apartment is comprised of a bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with a large shower.
While we were visiting, there was ongoing construction on two adjacent hotels. This made our stay a bit noisy--and the area a bit messy--but once construction and cleanup is complete (which it now probably is)--it will only enhance the apartment's location.
The property is ideally located just a minute or two walk from the beach (near Casa Sandra Hotel and Raices beach bar/grill). As you walk east from the apartment along the beach, hotels are replaced by empty stretches of beach and eventually the undisturbed natural area. It is an easy 10 minute stroll into the center of Holbox but there is a mini market a few minutes away where you can buy most everything you'll need for a short visit (water, eggs, sausage/ham, beer/alcohol, cleaning supplies, snacks, etc).
Isla Holbox provides the "small-town" Mexico experience with an idyllic Caribbean setting. There are plenty of restaurants serving local and US/European cuisine, street food at night around the square, a great ice cream shop ('Porque No') and small boutique hotels. The town thrives on tourism but is not overly "touristy". There is a great Carnival celebration in February and the island gets much busier around Easter as the island is filled with holiday goers from the Mexican mainland. The late Winter/Spring weather was fantastic--warm and dry and the sunsets are not to be missed.
If you are an independent type who prefers a self-catered apartments to hotels, we'd definitely recommend Enrique's place.
het verblijf was goed en schoon bij aankomst, we hebben ons goed op het eiland kunnen vermaken.
Bonne expérience dans le logement de Enrique à isla Holbox .
Logement propre .
Seuls petits bémols, manque de pression dans la douche et climatisation un peu bruyante .
Good experience at Enrique's house in isla hobox.
The house was clean
AC was a little bit noisy, and will need more pressure in The shower.
Thank you Enrique
I actually did not see Enrique, but I saw his friend. She did not speak english, but we tried to understand each other.
La casa esta mui bonita rústica y limpia. Tiene mucho espacio y esta mui central 3 minutos de la playa y 10 del centro. Yo por mi lado me gusta cocinar mucho a lo que la cocina me fue servible. La señora que cuida la casa nos ayudo mucho y siempre mui atenta. por la entrega de llaves ni un problema y todo salió perfecto.
Gracias por todo
Recette du bonheur: prenez une île merveilleuse, ajoutez un appartement à 2 minutes de la plage et à 5 minutes du centre ville, mélangez bien et dégustez sans modération!
Enrique et sa femme Malena sont deux personnes très gentilles et disponibles, sans parler de Minerba, la dame qui vous donnera les clés!
L'appartement est plutôt grand, et bien équipé (micro-ondes, frigo, plaques de cuisson), sans oublier Internet.
Ricetta della felicità: prendete un'isola paradisiaca, aggiungete un appartamento distante 2 minuti dalla spiaggia e 5 dal centro, mischiate bene e gustate appieno!
Enrique e sua moglie Malena sono due persone squisite e disponibili, senza parlare di Minerba, la signora che consegna la chiave.
L'appartamento è piuttosto spazioso, con tutto il necessario (microonde, frigo, fornelli elettrici), senza dimenticare Internet.
Recipe for happiness: take a wonderful island, add an apartment in 2 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from downtown, mix well and taste without moderation!
Enrique and his wife Malena are two very nice persons most receptive, like Minerba, the lady who will give you the keys!
The apartment is quite large and well equipped (microwave, fridge, hotplates, Internet).
We stayed for a week at Enrique s place. The place itself is nice and room was clean. Well located, only a short walk to town or the beach. Nice outdoor space with a patio (no view, only of wall of villa in front).
We were supposed to have internet but it wasn't working while we were there. He is supposed to change companies so that may be fixed by now. Only other problem was hot water was only a trickle and there was no key (had to use a knife to open door); may be fixed by now.
All in all, enjoyed our time and stay at Enriques.
The house was clean and as described and communication was fast and easy.
Comfortable beds and a working air-condition were the key to recreative sleep.
The beach is around the corner and you´ll reach the centre in about 10 min. walking.
