CASA CO'LEL LUNA--OCEAN VIEW, POOL, CLOSE TO BEACH & TOWN

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

5BR/5BA Oceanview Villa in Playacar Phase 1-Very Spacious-Sleeps up to 13

LAST-MINUTE SPECIAL RATE: Just $1950/wk. for up to 8 persons (booked within 30 days of stay).

Enjoy the best of the Mayan Riviera and the Yucatan Peninsula, and come home to the comfort and charm of Casa Co'lel Luna (Lady Moon House). This spacious 5 bedroom/5 bath home is located in the secure, gated community of Playacar -- less than two blocks from the clean white sands and warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. It's just a hop, skip and a cha-cha-cha to the friendly town of Playa del Carmen and the ferry to Cozumel (a 30-min. ride).

You can relax in your hammock and enjoy the cooling breeze and stunning views of ocean, sky, trees, and your next-door neighbor -- the ancient Mayan ruin of Xaman Ha. Green lawns, bright flowers, waterfalls, and shady trees surround our Casa. Our delightful natural pool will refresh your body and renew your spirit.

The home offers many amenities, including HDTV (satellite), DVD, stereo, all kitchen equipment and appliances (including microwave), and washer & dryer. Wheelchair access on ground floor. All rooms have terraces and are cooled by ocean breezes and ceiling fans. Three bedrooms are air-conditioned. Maid service is provided three days a week (or more upon request).

Our new private swimming pool is designed as a miniature 'cenote' (a natural freshwater pool) -- complete with waterfalls and other fun features. Around the pool are gardens, terraces and our fanciful gazebo, aka 'the hobbit house.' There is also a large built-in grill with counter area and sink as well as seating for up to 20 persons, all overlooking our neighboring Mayan ruins.

You will find that Casa Colel Luna is very reasonably priced for all that it offers. It's the perfect place for families or groups of friends to gather in comfort, surrounded by the lush beauty of tropical Mexico.

For larger groups (more than 10 or 12 people), consider renting an additional home or condo nearby. Just ask and we will put you in touch with the owners.

Large groups and special events: Contact us regarding accommodations for larger groups, reunions, weddings and other special events.

We are supposed to be retired but find ourselves busier than ever. We've been sharing our Playa del Carmen properties with satisfied guests since we built Casa Colel Luna in 1996. Since then we've acquired a small coffee farm in Kona, Hawaii, so we are kept busy working on the farm, relaxing and exploring in the Yucatan, and being with family in Santa Cruz, California.

Christina or Milt purchased this villa in 1996

We bought the property in 1993 and built the home in 1996 when Playa del Carmen was a still a sleepy town off the tourist path. The location next to a Mayan ruin with a view of the sparkling Caribbean was just magical and irresistable--and it still is.

We love our beautiful beach--just a 1-minute walk away--with its fine white sand and warm, clear water. Playa is such a fun town, very laid back, but also sophisticated--with fabulous restaurants and great shoping and entertainment. We love exploring hidden beaches, cenotes, Mayan ruins, and remote villages. The diving and snorkeling spots are some of the best in the world and easily accessible. Staying home and relaxing in a hammock or floating in the beautiful private pool with a cool Corona or margarita is pretty good too.

My Favorite Things

I am 9. My family was staying here in Mexico for a week. I swam every day. I’m gonna miss this place. I’m gonna miss the bedrooms, the pool, and especially the outdoor bathroom…. My favorite thing in the house are those cool star lights in the bedroom on the 3rd floor. We went snorkeling and saw 2 turtles, 4 sting rays, and thousands of fish. Your pool is amazing. PS I love the mosquito net!

We have visited Colel Luna for six years. The house is very comfortable and ideally located to shopping, dining, and the beach. The community is quiet and well maintained. Esperanza, the property manager, is a dear and most helpful. We will return next year for more enjoyment of Playa del Carmen and the surrounding attractions.

This vacation house is the very best!! The neighborhood, the beaches, the town, the people (Esperanza) and the house itself are beyond belief! Wish we could have stayed longer. We absolutely loved it!

A Wonderful Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
I have had the privilege to go to this beautiful house annually, for over 10 years, now.

Every year, I have joined friends numbering 4 to 10 for at least 2 weeks at the end of February and/or beginning of March. Each year, the place seems to become more beautiful and comfortable and is very well maintained.

Esperanza, the property manager, is so accessible problems that occasionally turn up are resolved quickly. She is very helpful with transportation, restaurants, places to go, events that are happening and will even cook for you! She is a valued person for this home away from home.

The newest feature of the house is the fabulous pool (just like the photo shows). Underwater stools at one end of the pool make it easy for staying refreshed with drinks while watching others float around the center and the children playing in the little pool at the other end. The pool does give the beach some competition - the decision to walk to the lovely white sands and clear gentle waves of la playa is a quandary that one should welcome, I guess.

There are many things to do that are walking distance to the house - shopping, dinning and sunbathing/swimming. Things to do and places to go outside of town and the house are many - Esperanza can help you with that if you need any assistance with that. Even after going there for so many years, there are new things to see and many places to revisit - this area can be as busy or 'laid back" as you want to make it. The beauty of this house is that it is just as comfortable to "stay in" as it is to find adventures outside.

I love this house, as I said before, it just gets better every year I go. I highly recommend it for family gatherings, reunions or just getting away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life. Enjoy the stay in this little bit of paradise.

We had a wonderful time. The new pool was great, Esperanza and her husband were helpful as always and had wonderful suggestions on new places to visit, and the home was beautiful (you have great taste in decorating by the way). Our entire experience was fantastic!!! What was particularly nice is that it is a perfect place for a family. We were able to cook our meals, lounge in the pool after a day of exploring, and it is a minute walk to the beach or a minute walk to downtown.

Thanks again and we may be touching base with you again in the near future.
