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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
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 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.

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.

A WONDERFUL GETAWAY HOME

  • 5 of 5
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 KEEP COMING BACK, YEAR AFTER YEAR

  • 5 of 5
We have been staying at Casa Colel Luna yearly for the better part of ten years, and it has improved in amenities each one of those years. The staff on site are accomodating, skilled and responsive to our needs. In fact we spent 5 weeks in the house in 2008, sharing each week with different friends and family and plan to do so again in 2009. The bedrooms are spacious and charmingly reflect local color and decor . It takes only minutes to walk to town or to the beach, and the kitchen and barbecue areas lend themselves to cooking and eating in , as well. After a hot day at the beach or shopping in town, we like to wind down in the natural pool, floating or sharing a cold drink together, before deciding where we should go to dinner in town. The pool is attached to the smaller house on the property, but available to both and we have always found it accessible to us. When our granddaughters were there last winter, it was almost impossible to get them out of the pool, and we appreciated that there was a wading pool area for the 3 year old to "swim" in. The concierge, Esperanza, is able to arrange for a local car and driver, should you want to tour local sites. She can also arrange for a private masseuse to come to the house to smooth out those muscles tired from snorkeling the reef at Akumal or climbing the ruins at Tulum. The real beauty of the house is its location, so close to town, to the beach and within a short drive to beaches, Mayan ruins and caves. It is also a spacious and comfortable house for a family vacation or a getaway with friends. You will enjoy your stay there, and I can recommend breakfast in the cool of the morning in the gazebo, so that you can watch the charming agoutis eating their breakfasts, as well (as long as you put something out for them to share).

GREAT GIRLS TRIP!

  • 5 of 5
A group of 7 ladies rented this house for a week in January of 2007. It was the perfect spot for hanging out, walking into town to shop and eat or walking down to the beach.

Esperanza was fabulous and even arranged for a massuese to come and provide massages for those interested in making an appointment.

I'll be looking to book this house again!

JANUARY TRIP

  • 4 of 5
The house was amazing. Everything was very clean and the housekeepers were friendly and quick. I'll start with the bads and end with the goods. First off, there is not a pool at this location. You do have access to the neighbors pool, but it is small and a bit awkward if you don't know them. Secondly, we had trouble initially with things like the internet and the stereo but Esperanza had them fixed within three days.
Now on to the goods: Like I said the house was clean. The house is also very close to 5th Ave and the city of Playa del Carmen (within 5 minutes walk.) Also, you have beach access literally a minute away and the house comes with beach chairs and umbrellas and even a cooler to bring down. There is plenty of room in every bedroom, no one ends up sleeping in a living area. In summary, the house is very nice and affordable so long as you don't need a pool.

Owner's Response: We're pleased that this reviewer was happy with our house and staff. We rely on our great housekeepers and manager Esperanza to keep things running smoothly in our absence. Since this review was written in 2008, we have installed a beautiful new and private pool for Casa Colel Luna. Our pool has a swim-up bar, waterfalls, and a separate play area for kiddies. You can see pictures on the webpage.
