Welcome to Casa Cat Ba
Casa Cat Ba is a private hideaway located beachfront on Isla Holbox, Yucatan, Mexico.
It is a 5 rooms-only villa, dedicated to offer the highest level of personal services to its guests.
Casa Cat Ba is an exclusive and authentic intimate Mayan-style villa, redesigned with local materials, natural colors in a Wabi-Sabi style. The design mood of the hotel is exotic, stylish, minimalist and Bohemian Chic. Vintage furniture, local handcrafts and worldwide artwork give the place a personal and unique touch.
Our private hotel is nestled in the village, right on the beach, only 3 minutes walking distance to enjoy the cooking of restaurants, to appreciate cocktails at bars or doing some shopping.
Casa Cat Ba is a place to renew yourself, reconnect and re-energize. Eat fruits, eggs or meat at breakfast, drink a fruit juice, a beer or a glass of wine with empanadas at sunset, read a book, listen to music, dance, sing or above all, do nothing all day long.
We will be happy to share the natural beauty of Casa Cat Ba with you, for a celebration, a photo shoot or a special meeting.
Please note that we do love kids but as we offer a private quiet hideaway with only 5 rooms, children under 12 will have to wait a few years before enjoying Casa Cat Ba, unless you book the entire house.
Casa Cat Ba is pet friendly.
Come and experience the Casa Cat Ba life!
Casa Cat Ba welcomes you all day long on the oceanfront deck to fully enjoy your day laying on our sun beds.
The breathtaking view of the ocean also makes Casa Cat Ba’s Deck a coveted place for the perfect sunset-watching location.

Colette & Pierre-Marie
Casa Cat Ba is a beachfront unique private hotel created by Colette & Pierre-Marie, a French couple who has decided few years ago to quit their corporate jobs in Bordeaux and travel different countries to find a place where they will be able to create the holiday’s peaceful property they had in mind.
They went from Southern Europe to Vietnam, from Brazil to Florida, and finally stopped in Mexico, the Yucatan peninsula, where they fell in love with the unique and magical island of Holbox.
There, they discovered a villa on the beach village and were lucky to succeed in acquiring it.
They used their experience of decoration after redoing the house to turn it into what Casa Cat Ba is today: a unique hideaway of 5 bedrooms with private terraces, a few steps above the clear tropical waters.
Colette & Pierre-Marie propose you to live a tropical beach life experience by renting one, several or the whole house, surrounded by the palm trees of the garden, in the heart of the typical village of the island.
Our Eco-Responsible Engagement
We are trying to limit our impact on the island’s ecological heritage.
Also, we do not use plastic bottles and invite you to fill your jars at the drinking water dispenser that you will find in the lobby or in your room.
The Yucatan Senses toiletries we offer are locally produced, organic and not tested on animals. The bottles are not thrown away but filled regularly.
Because we believe in the local economy, we only buy from the local stores: from the grocery stores and the small market in the village of Holbox.
