Property Description Villa Encantamar

Come stay at this peaceful, oceanfront home. Our home is located just steps from the blue waters of the Caribbean. The home features 3 large bedroom suites with air conditioning and private baths. All bedrooms have ocean views. A second floor balcony runs the width of the house and may be accessed from the two upper bedrooms and the sitting room that is located between the two bedrooms. The sitting room has a futon that sleeps one adult. The first floor bedroom opens out onto a porch that runs the width of the house. The downstairs bedroom and one of the upstairs bedrooms have king beds. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has two queen beds. The house sleeps 8-9. The house is perfect for 3 couples, a family, or a small group of friends.

The porch and balcony are perfect for watching the ocean and the sunrise. A third floor is a large terrace that is perfect for watching the sunset over the mangroves.

The main living space is made up of a large living room, dining room, kitchen, bath and beautiful entryway. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there is a small laundry room just off the kitchen. The living space is open and perfect for a family gathering. With a balcony, porch, sitting room, living room and beautiful courtyard, there is plenty of room to spread out and spend quiet time reading or enjoying the ocean and pool.

The pool is located in a beautiful, private garden courtyard. The pool is accented with a waterfall. This is a perfect place to sit, read and enjoy the quiet setting. Or spend time swimming or playing in the pool. There is a shallow area for small children.

We have a Vonage phone for free calls to and from the U.S. and Canada. We also have wireless Internet. Guests are given a cell phone for local calls.

The Villa is located just a short ten-minute drive north of the town of Puerto Morelos. Puerto Morelos offers a nice relaxing setting, away from the crowds but close enough for convenient access to the entertainment and attractions of the Riviera Maya. The town features many good restaurants, a grocery store, ATM, English language bookstore, Internet café, fresh fish market, park, gift stores, snorkeling or boating tours, and beautiful beach. The community is a mix of locals and foreigners. It is a safe and quiet town.

Because of the Villa’s location and design, guests have all of the conveniences of a central location and the privacy and tranquility of a private estate. The Villa is just 25 minutes south of Cancun and 25 minutes north of the popular tourist town of Playa del Carmen. Other attractions within easy driving distance include Xcaret, Xel-ha, Tulum, Puerto Adventurous, Crococun Zoo, zip lines, and more. The large ruins at Chichen Itza make a nice day trip.

Owners are retired and spend sometime in the Cancun area.

Paul purchased this house in 2000

We chose this location because the Caribbean is beautiful and warm for swimming and snorkeling and there are many local attractions.

Free phone calls to the USA any time is a huge plus amenity at this first class Villa on the beach. I loved the fact that I could talk free with my family in the US at no cost. This villa has every thing any one could possible want at their stay here. Beautiful home! I was there for 10 days and didn't want to leave. I definitly will return to this paradise. Your beds were better than mine at home by the way. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Ruth Boden

From the moment that we opened the gate and stepped onto the property, we were in paradise. The courtyard flowers were in bloom and the pool was inviting. Walking up the front steps, we could see through the living room to the beautiful, inviting sea. Under the gentle waves were many creatures that we would discover in our numerous snorkeling adventures; spotted eagle rays, eels, French angelfish, stingrays, and wrasse, to name but a few. (How wonderful it was to wake up totally rejuvenated from a sound sleep and dive beneath the waves and see such things!)

The house was so well appointed and the snorkeling so fantastic that we had little reason to leave. One of our finest adventures, though, was set up by Bruno, the house manager extraordinaire, who arranged for a boat to take our family of five out to the reef. This was without a doubt, the best of all possible underwater worlds. We were picked up in front of the house and took a five minute boat ride to the reef. At the reef we were guided, as required, through and around the coral. Our children were completely entranced by the schools of fish they saw; blue tang, damselfish, along with rays and barracuda and many other fish. The boat operator and the guide were both most helpful and great with the kids, and enthusiastic about the reef and fish. It was an unforgettable adventure, and worth many times what Bruno had negotiated for us.

There is much to do in the area; we visited the ruins at Coba, swam in the cenotes, and dined in Puerto Morelos. We could easily have spent a month there and still left feeling as we did; looking forward to our return to discover more about the area, and knowing that such a great house could be home for a short time.

Our stay at the Villa Encantamar,was wonderful and very relaxing. Having the oppurtunity to use the Vontage phone was a great way to be able to check in with the pet sitters and family members back at home. We were amazed at how many small restaurants there were to try in Puerto Morelos. We did order bread from Momma's Cafe a couple of days and also had breakfast there the morning we left, Very good!! We did snorkel one day, what a treat that was to have the boat pick us up right in front of the house!! Bruno was wonderful, so lucky to have some one available for any concerns or help. One suggestion, would be a bgger outside BBQ. Look forward to returning back and stay at the Villa Encantamar!

Dear Joan---

We're back and adjusting to "real life" again but I wanted to write and tell you what a great time we had. The house was just perfect, everything we'd hoped for. The girls had a great time in their two queen bed and my daughter Sarah and her husband loved their room upstairs. I had the mother's room on the first floor which suited me fine, away from the kids, and very convenient during the day.

Thanks for all of the food that was already there--especially the lemonade. It was great to be able to make up a pitcher and take it out to the kids when they were lounging around the pool.

Bruno was great. He came and wiggled some wires and got the internet and phones working the first day and then I think I may have called him one time for something--can't even remember what at this point. But he's a great guy.
