San Cristobal de las Casas House Rental Photos and Description
Bedrooms 5, Bathrooms 7, Sleeps 10
Perched high on a hillside in the gated enclave of Upper Peter Bay is an elegant sanctuary in a hypnotizing setting. CARL5 offers five large air-conditioned bedroom/bath suites in three pavilions. The villa's main structure features a spacious great room which includes a large gourmet kitchen bordered by a long countertop with stools. Adjacent is the dining area and a powder room right around the corner. On the other side of the great room is the living area with a 50-inch flat-screen satellite TV, a Bose sound system, and extensive movie and music collections. Louvered and screened mahogany doors open from the living area to the covered verandah with a large table for alfresco dining with a view. From the great room, a curved staircase leads to the oversized second-level master suite and home office. This grand king master suite features a Ralph Lauren four-poster bed with an adjacent air conditioned walk-in closet. Mahogany doors open to a pergola verandah on the ocean side of the pavilion, furnished with chaise lounges. The en-suite marble bath provides separate his-and her sinks linked by a massive wall-to-wall mirror, a Jacuzzi bathtub, and a separate glass-and-marble shower. Just outside the master bath is Villa Carlota's roofed hot tub pavilion with a coral stone floor. Although the spa pavilion is off the master suite, anyone may access the hot tub from the driveway courtyard or from the great room with a key. Villa Carlota's third level is a second bedroom/bath suite, this one with a four-poster queen bed. The views from this suite's windows are spectacular. Back at the terrace and pool just outside the main structure is a green 'bamboo' marble wet bar with mini-fridge and icemaker ready for poolside libations and evening cocktails. A stainless steel professional gas rotisserie grill built into a stone grilling area allows for great grilled meals inside or out - the area easily connects to kitchen and dining area via a rear hallway. Villa Carlota's second pavilion is on the other side of the pool terrace, offering two centrally-air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites on two levels for excellent privacy. On the lower level of this pavilion is the laundry room with two washers and two dryers; this area has a private service entrance so that the housekeepers may enter the house from the driveway courtyard without coming through the villa's main entry. A small exercise room adjoins the second pavilion, screened to let the trade winds in. The driveway courtyard has ample parking and turning space for three cars, and an outside shower for after-beach rinse-offs. Across this courtyard is the charming Cottage Suite, nicely secluded from the rest of the property. Air-conditioned, this cottage provides a living area with a balcony overlooking the main villa, a full bath, a small kitchen with a covered patio for alfresco meals, and on its upper level, a king (or two-twin) bedroom with a full bath, a large verandah off to its side, a step-out balcony in front, and an en-suite bath.

As of winter 2012, we anticipate some construction noise and possibly periodic construction traffic interruptions that could affect the Peter Bay neighborhood. If you would like further details on the current status of this building activity, please inquire and we'll be happy to obtain the latest information for you.
