Have you ever dreamed of living in your very own sand~castle by the sea? If so, we have the perfect place for you!
The majestic Casa Playa Maya is a stunning 3 bedroom 3 bathroom villa, located at arguably the best Caribbean beach in all of Costa Maya, Puerto Angel. It's inticing castlelike facade grows out of the sugar fine white sand as the gentle waves, crystal clear waters and coconut palms complete the scene to help make this dramatic beach home an ideal vacation destination.
Tall glass doors line the entire beach side of this home on the ground floor, allowing you to step out onto your tiled terrace from any room, with an uninterrupted view of the lapping waves and turquoise water. The main level features a fully equipped spacious kitchen, complete with a full sized refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, numerous small appliances, walk-in pantry, tiled countertop which seats four leading to the dining room, with seating for six. The beautifully variegated warm-toned hardwood table and chairs were locally handcrafted and not only serve as a perfect dining station, but they also create a wonderful place for playing cards, dominos or board games which we have provided for your enjoyment.
An adjacent great room with a vaulted ceiling and large upper windows give an atrium~like ambiance and offers panoramic views up and down the Caribbean coastline from anywhere in the room. Locally made 'contemporary mission style' furniture provides comfortable seating for your entire group and the oversized sofa makes a great place for a breezy indoor sea-side 'siesta'.
Around the corner, the downstairs king bedrooms' sliding glass doors open to a beach view that seems to invite the outside in, making it feel as though you are actually sleeping on the beach! Your walk in closet has plenty of hanging, drawer & shelf space including a personal safe. The attached spacious bathroom is beautifully decorated with traditional Mexican tiles.
Down the hallway, a sizable tile-shelved laundry room provides not only storage for an array of beach toys, masks, floats and more, it also becomes an ideal spot for hanging your bathing suits, wet suits, snorkel gear & beach towels to dry. An ample utility room also serves as your recycling center and 2 generous closets house additional comforts such as extra linens, towels & bedding, books & games, plastic patio table & chairs for 6, fishing equiptment, portable playpen, air mattresses & hammocks.
The design of this beach home allows for the sea breeze to freely flow throughout the entire home, providing your haven with a fresh and airy feel. On the rare occasions that the air seems still, ceiling fans throughout the casa will help to keep you comfortable, even in this tropical climate.
Head up the gorgeous centrally located staircase to find the TV lounge area which overlooks the great room and has exquisite views of the beach. A duplicate set of the Mayan~made sofa, love-seat, chair & tables make this common area the perfect place for watching movies, playing games, reading a good book or even streaming free online television from your personal HDMI laptop computer. This room can also be used as an additional sleeping area with air beds and is especially great for kids.
Leading off on either side of the lounge, you will find a king~sized master bedroom suite with a large closet which has built in drawers, shelves, a personal safe & plenty of hanging space. Each bedroom has it’s own delightfully tiled 3/4 bath on the west end of the room & to the east, sliding doors face the Caribbean Ocean leading you out onto your very own covered balcony, a perfect place to wake up with your favorite cup of coffee or tea and a romantic spot to catch a memorable moonbeam or shooting star show before turning in after a day of pure pleasure.
Another favorite place to be in this gorgeous beach home is on the rooftop!
Accessible from the upper lounge, ascend the 'caracol' to a breathtaking delight. Stretch out on comfy cozy cushions topping the built-in concrete sofas under the dappled shade of the lanai or swing in your hammock in the sunshine of this outdoor living area offering privacy, amazing breezes and fabulous bird watching. This wonderfully serene space also makes a great place for practicing yoga, tai chi and meditation, as well as affording sun~seekers the opportunity to even out their tan lines in peace. From this picturesque perch, expect sublime sunrise vistas of the Caribbean coastline boasting birdseye views of the world famous Mesoamerican Reef to the east, but not to be topped by the gorgeous landscapes and peaceful sunsets over the mystical Mayan jungle to the west.
This eco-friendly home is completely off the grid so it enjoys the use of solar power with a back up propane fueled generator, propane also fuels the stove & hot water tank. Casa Playa Maya's water is collected in an underground cistern and is replenished with rain water. For these reasons, we ask you to be mindful of the situation by turning off ceiling fans & lights when leaving a room, unplugging your laptop computer & cell phones when fully charged, utilizing opportunities to conserve water whenever possible, and so on. Our solar system is very efficient and has proven to be more than adequate for most scenerios, however there may be times when overcast conditions deem it necessary to utilize the generator to charge the batteries. Don't worry, shifting into 'eco~mode' is not really hard at all & we are happy to provide you with helpful hints and tips to become super [solar] empowered, if you would like! Many visitors here enjoy the calm that comes with the soft glow of candlelight dining and relaxing after the sun goes down, but knowing you have a system that can handle watching tv, playing on your computer and utilizing the ceiling fans and lighting well after dark, is always a comfort.
We are thrilled to be able to offer this amazing fantasy by the sea with a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom option. You will have all of the aforementioned areas and will simply rent 1, 2 or 3 king bed/bath combos as your party requires. With the 3 bedroom selection, all of Casa Playa Maya is included as described and this is also our handicapped/wheelchair accessibility option. If you find that your party only needs a 2/2, you would be renting both of the bedrooms on the second story & with the 1 bedroom rental, you'll enjoy your sweet dreams in the upstairs~north boudoir.
