Beach Homes > Taj Majahual, Jewel of the Costa Maya

Taj Majahual

Taj Majahual (pronounced Ma-ha-wall) is clearly the most interesting house on the Costa Maya. From the talavera tiled dome to the hand-crafted woodwork to the themed bedrooms, Taj Majahual is an artful experience that celebrates the color of Mexico and the tropics.

Taj Majahual is privately owned by a couple from San Antonio. Their love of Mexico and its Spanish colonial history are apparent in every detail. Mayan Beach Garden is proud to make Taj Majahual available to you in their behalf. It is by far the most unique house on the Costa Maya at a great price.

The "off the grid" house may be rented as a one bedroom house with kitchen (Sultan's Suite), 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms (Whole enchilada!) or as 3 separate individually rented bedrooms. Confused? A plan of the house is included below. Mayan Beach Garden restaurant is within walking distance from the house and breakfast at MBG is included in the price of individual rooms (breakfast is not included in Sultan's suite).

The elevated house sits 100 feet from the Caribbean's crystal clear water. With unobstructed views of white sand from the house to the beach. Taj Majahual's sandy beach is great for swimming and is minutes from Punta Placer where you will find great snorkeling.

The large Party balcony area has a talavera tile carpet in colors that match the caribbean and table to seat 10 for entertaining.
