A propos de Gisele Muller et Philippe Lesage
Philippe est Français et Gisele, Canadienne. Ils travaillent aussi en France dans l’organisation d’événements.
Année d’acquisition : 2007
Pourquoi Gisele Muller et Philippe Lesage a choisi Xcalak
Nous avons choisi d’acheter a Xcalak et plus particulièrement, Casa Caracola parce qu’il est possible de faire de l’apnée en partant directement de la plage. Les coraux y sont nombreux et il est possible de rejoindre la barrière de corail en nageant.
Les points forts de cette location
Philippe adore la mer et le couple fait beaucoup d’apnée et de « free diving ». L’endroit est très tranquil et relax, un vrai havre de paix authentique.

Des vacances de rêve ....
Un site au bout du monde magnifique, une maison superbe et des hôtes charmants et très attentionnés ….. des vacances comme on en rêvait.
Imaginez une plage de sable fin qui vous amène dans un lagon ou là vous découvrez dans votre masque de plongée un monde merveilleux de coraux vivants et colorés, de poissons très variés, de raies léopard qui dansent devant vous, juste pour vous, de barracudas qui vous accompagnent dans votre randonnée palmée…
Philippe, notre hôte, nous fait découvrir des sites dont un où il réveille un requin dormeur pour que nous puissions le voir évoluer doucement dans l’eau, un autre où il charme avec des sardines une énorme murène verte qui sort presque entièrement de son trou pour un spectacle tout en poésie …..
Et au retour d’une de ces promenades, Gisèle, notre hôtesse, nous fait goûter un guacamole fait maison autour d’un verre ……..
Merci beaucoup à tous les deux de partager ce lieu magique empreint de sérénité, de poésie où sur le toit de la maison nous pouvions admirer le matin le soleil levant sur la mer et le soir le soleil couchant sur la mangrove.
Merci. Votre témoignage nous a beaucoup touché mais tout ce qui s'est passé, nous vous le devons également. Vous faites partie des personnes qui sont davantage des voyageurs que de simples touristes. Ce lieu du bout du monde correspond effectivement à ceux qui recherchent ces endroits préservés ou la nature tient le premier role. Brazo abiertos.
A fabulous trip!
the house and grounds are immaculate. It is the best kept beach in the area! My favorite spot was sitting in the lounge chairs on the large balcony outside our bedroom overlooking the beach and the ocean.The amenities are great. The advance info was very helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with our gracious hosts. They included us in their local community activities & dinners! I am sorry I had to leave before I could go snorkeling with my host.
We loved having you and Ruth. You are great guess.
A great getaway from it all....,
Great stay! Enjoyed the beach and snorkeling!
We enjoyed having both of you. You are wonderful guests. Thank you.
Absolutely wonderful location and hosts!
First of all, the house is spectacular. You're steps away from a pristine beach and ocean life. We were stunned when arrived and were shown the premises. The accommodations are amazing. The upper level of the residence is divided between two units with one unit containing the kitchen. Both units have balconies that overlook the beach and ocean, with one being under an enclosed palapa. You also get access to a rooftop the provides amazing views of the ocean and lagoon. There is an original unit with a bedroom and the addition with the second master. The original doesn't quite have the luxuries of the addition, but we had no complaints about either. The master and bath located in the addition has shower that overlooks the ocean and beach, and we found it a treat to use daily. In the addition bedroom, you literally open your eyes every morning to palm trees and a spectacular ocean view.
Initial communication from Gisele and Phillipe was great. They provided very detailed travel information and recommendations along the way. They also provided information on Xcalak before our stay, so we knew what to expect as far as restaurants and amenities go.
The stay was fantastic. Gisele and Phillipe are amazing hosts. They stay in the lower level of the residence, and are some of the most friendly and amazing people we have had the chance to meet. They make your entire stay comfortable, whether that means taking you on snorkel tours or waking up in the middle of the night to make sure your vehicle and belongings are safe (which was above and beyond anything would we expect). While you are sharing the premises with them, they make it clear that it's your house and beach for your stay. They interact with you as much or as little as you want. They also went out of there way to help us accommodate our dining wishes.
Daily housekeeping visits ensure your quarters are always neat and tidy, and it seemed that Phillipe was up as the sun was coming up every morning to make sure that the beach was immaculate. Kayaks and snorkel gear were provided.
All in all, I can't recommend this enough. This isn't a place for folks who like nightlife and populous locations; however, if you're looking for comfortable accommodations off the beaten path then look no further. We will vividly remember this trip for a long time, and hopefully we get a chance to visit Gisele and Phillipe again!
Thank you for your comments. You 4 were just amazing also. We enjoyed your company immensely and hope to see you in the near futur.

Simply The Best
I hesitate to write this review only because I would prefer to keep this location as much to myself as possible. We (my wife and I, our 22 year old daughter and 13 year old son) stayed at Casa Caracola for 10 nights and I can't wait until we return. Everything you have or will read in other reviews about this place and Phillipe & Gisele, the owners is spot on. But mere words will never do the Casa or its hosts justice. You have to experience it. Now that said, Xcalak is not a destination geared to the average vacationer. You should be the kind of traveler that likes to get away from the tourist traps, is willing to spend a bit more for a authentic experience and be able to appreciate nature in all its raw and sometimes unpredictable beauty. Come with that attitude and your patience will be more than rewarded. Gisele and Phillipe have gone above and beyond to create an environment that lets you explore the natural beauty of this unique part of the world. They are very knowledgeable about the aquatic and bird life that is indiscriminate in its variety. Phillipe has built an "aquarium" just a few meters off the beach which has become a gathering place for a plethora of fish, small and large. He feeds them daily and may even let you join him if you're a good guest! Now bigger species are starting to become curious about this spot ... on our first day a stingray swam several circles around my wife before retreating, the first time, according to Phillipe that one of these creatures has come in so close. Just beyond the aquarium and under a submerged boat lives a moray eel. Very shy but he was coaxed out one afternoon for us to see up close and personal. Further out under the coral we came across a nurse shark resting on the ocean floor, spade fish, jack and all kinds of tiny, rainbow colored fish darting in and out of the reef. Casa Caracola is situated between the ocean and a large lagoon which we did not have time to explore. Next time I hope to take a kayak around the edge of the lagoon with Phillipe so he can show me the underground channels fish use to migrate from the lagoon into the sea. And when you are weary of exploring the Casa is a glorious place to relax ... in the master bedroom with wide screen view of the ocean and sky, two separate decks where you can lounge in sun or the shade of a palapa and your own private rooftop aerie which provides an unimpeded 360 degree view of the lush surroundings. Do not hesitate to book in here.
You were great guests. Thank you so much.
