About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Located along Playa Paraiso between Playa Del Carmen and Puerto Morelos, Villa Carolina is a masterfully designed luxury retreat in the heart of the Mayan Riviera. Built by renowned local architect Jesus Romero, this bijou villa was first graced by Oscar award winning legend Sir Ben Kingsley and, no doubt, offers some of the best views of the Caribbean. Playa Paraiso is a private, gated community with twenty-four hour security located on one of the best white sand beaches in the world.

The light colored deck and the white sands right against it lend the look of an oasis to the pristine infinity swimming pool that includes a swim-up bar with water stools. Ample sun loungers have been laid onto the deck. The alfresco experience is rounded out with an outdoor shower and a charcoal grill. Indoors, you will find satellite TV, an iPod dock and Bose surround sound. Your reservation includes housekeeping six days a week, a villa manager and Wi-Fi access.

The decorative highlights at Villa Carolina include mahogany doors and cabinetry, granite countertops, ceramic tile throughout and a gourmet chefs kitchen with high-end appliances. The adjacent formal living area provides a stellar view of the lawn, white sands and turquoise sea. The living room includes comfortable sofas and a direct view to the upper deck.

Five lovely bedrooms accommodate up to ten guests at Villa Carolina. Children are welcome. Three bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, and four of the suites provide direct access to the temperate climate just outside.

Villa Carolina is a quick five minute drive to Puerto Morelos and a ten to fifteen minute drive to Playa del Carmen. You will surely enjoy the tranquility and relaxation youll experience at Playa Paraiso, but if youre looking for activities, you will find amazing options for golf, water sports and sight seeing nearby. Playa del Carmen and Cancun also offer many opportunities for dining, shopping and nightlife.

Spring Break get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing stay and almost private beach vacation during our 10 days.The house is lovely and worked perfectly for our family of 5 and 2 grandparents.The pool next to the ocean is a definite plus and we enjoyed all our meals outside enjoying the scenery. Those that did walk the beach wanted to know about the rental because it is just that perfect.Don't hesitate to book this villa!

Beautiful house and location!!! Relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5

Villa was beautiful and in a great location. Jorge the concierge was great and very prompt. Only issue we had was the hot water. There was less than 5 minutes of hot water. All of our showers ended with cold water. It also would have been nice to take a hot bath in the huge jetted tub but the water was cold before the water level was up. We were told twice it was fixed but it never was.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Carolina! The home had everything we needed. It was clean, spacious and comfortable for all. We loved the convenience of the pool and ocean just a few steps from the door. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed watching the sunrise daily. The home has beautiful accessories and is decorated nicely. Lucy the housekeeper was very kind and took care of the house many times during the week. The area the home is located in is completely safe and we enjoyed the privacy. We always saw a guard at the entrance 24/7.

Close to perfection

  • 5 of 5

We only really have one complaint and that is the WiFi, It was out more often than it was working. We did not have a cell phone that worked there so our only way to contact the manager would be via e-mail using the WiFi, which was mostly not available. That aside, the villa was great...the pool, the beach, the gulf... all better than advertised. The Chef service that our concierge retained was also perfect for us.

Perfect house on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Villa Carolina was a perfect house for our "girls trip". It is conveniently located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Sitting in the pool while watching the waves crash on the beach is amazing. Lucy the housekeeper was pleasant and made staying in a villa relaxing because she cleaned up after us, just like we were at a hotel. The house is stocked with a ton of movies for evening entertainment. The private villa massages were excellent. We hired chefs to cook us dinner two nights (Ely and Fanny). The food was amazing, but the service was better. They cooked, served us dinner and cleaned up after. The best feature of Villa Carolina is the house manager Jorge. The owners are so lucky to have such an amazing employee. If we needed anything....Jorge presented it within minutes. Unfortunately, during dinner in Playa del Carmen one night our rental car was towed and impounded. If it wasn't for Jorge,I would still be in Mexico trying to get the car back. He is PRICELESS!!
