Casa Mambo-Private Villa Beach, Pools, Waterfall, Discount 20%

Bedrooms 3
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Casa Mambo is a new and uniquely designed Mediterranean/Mayan-style villa. It's located in the exclusive safe and quiet Corpus Christi area just a 10 minute walk from the turquoise water and white sand beaches of the Maya Riviera. It's just a quick three blocks to some of the finest restaurants and shops, and a 20-minute seaside walk to the ferry pier and bustling main plaza with its many duty-free stores and attractions.

The villa is decorated in bold bright tropical colors with hand-made Talavera tiles and mosaic designs. The furnishings are one-of-a-kind pieces whimsically painted by local island artists. The Mambo House has a natural limestone waterfall cascading into the shallow wading pool, and then flowing into the main swimming pool, all surrounded by a lush tropical garden.

All rooms have verandas and look onto the pools and garden area. The property is great for large or small adult gatherings, and perfect for families with children with its fully enclosed garden areas.

Casa Mambo is our own private vacation house which we built ourselves. It is not a condo with shared facilities. It is privately managed, and we make all arrangements directly with you.

We do not use agencies and therefore keep our rates much lower than the market. This makes Casa Mambo one of the few villas on the island that is full every week of the year, so please make your reservations as early as possible to assure availability.

Extras: Espresso machine, china place settings, glassware, DVD w/movies, small library, Latin music, on-call staff, maid services, bottled water, coolers for the beach, snorkeling gear.

About The Owner

Have lived in Mexico and know the country well. Also have worked in archaeology in many parts of the country. The nearby Maya sites should not be missed.

Why The Owner chose Colonos Cuzamil

We built our "dream house" on this beautiful Caribbean island as we love the color of the waters and the culture of the wise and gentle Maya.

What makes this villa unique

There is much to see and do or just relax by the pool and do nothing.

Nice, modest house needing some TLC

  • 3 of 5

I would have to say the exact same things that Jason C. said in his review from Feb. 2016. The house has a great floorplan, and could use some TLC/updating (e.g. fresh coat of paint in the kitchen/living room, master bath and on the exterior; new caulk/grout around kitchen sink). The pool and waterfall feature are beautiful. Astrid, the house manager, and Rosa, the housekeeper, were wonderful. Rosa came twice during our stay to clean and a gentleman came to clean the pool daily. Walking distance (10-15 minutes) to Dolphinaris, two supermarkets (Chedraui and Mega), and downtown with an abundance of shops and restaurants.

Very unhappy with this place

  • 1 of 5

This place was extremely dirty, we were not informed ahead of time that we would need to provide all cooking utensils along with all towels and bedding. They had some linens but were very gross. The area was safe and there were nice restaurants close by.

Very nice perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

My family came from all over to spend Christmas together and having a home rather than separate hotel rooms made it so much more special. The home was wonderful. The hot water was a bit challenging but otherwise everything was wonderful

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I am a single mother who travelled with my 3 daughters, 24, 19 & 16 years old. We stayed at Casa Mambo for a week & we had a great vacation! The location is perfect to walk anywhere in the city & we always felt safe even at night! We did have a rental car that got us to the beautiful beaches on the other side of the island!

The house manager Astrid was wonderful & the pool was perfect! I would definitely come back!

For the price reasonable

  • 3 of 5

This is not a bad deal for a family needing 3 bedrooms. Some basic repairs of doors that stick, lights and fans that do not work, and broken windows that allow mosquitos in would help a lot. The beds were very firm. We were spending $500 a day on diving and did not want to spend too much on accomodations. The pool and inner courtyard is the most charming aspect of this older villa. There is a regular housekeeper and pool maintenance worker and the maintenance staff did respond quickly to imediate repair needs (broken door and light). The neighborhood is safe and although we could hear neighbors partying from outside the house, we could not hear them once inside. A friendly iguana prowls the roof.
