Luna Encantada condo description

Enjoy one the most luxurious beachfront condos in Playa.

Imagine your own private roof top terrace with panoramic ocean views right in the heart of town. Welcome to Luna Encantada Unit H3, one of the premier oceanfront, penthouse villas in the exclusive boutique 24 unit Luna Encantada Villas.

Luna Encantada's location is one of its best amenities. These resort condos are set amidst Playa del Carmen’s mythical beach and vibrant international sidewalk scene. A mere half block from the gates of Luna Encantada, Playa’s urbane Fifth Avenue pedestrian promenade beckons with relaxed cafes and gourmet restaurants, exclusive lounges, and alfresco bars, intriguing boutiques and local purveyors of all types and variety.

The master bedroom offers a king bed, walk-in closet, and huge walk-in shower tiled with travertine marble. The 2nd bedroom, which has 2 queen beds and a full bath with bathtub, is appointed with beautiful teak furniture.

This luxury beach villa is tastefully decorated in Caribbean Beach decor. The ocean is visible from most every room in the villa, especially from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom where a wall of sliding glass doors and windows offer unobstructed views of the ocean. But the best room in the house is the rooftop terrace. On the terrace you can relax with friends, dine with the outdoor gas BBQ, or just soak in the sun. In the condo, travertine marble floors extend onto your private outdoor terrace, fully equipped chef's stainless kitchen with granite counter tops and throughout the unit. Original paintings and many other fine details provide international style. Even the terrace is furnished in the finest indoor/outdoor comfort for lounging and alfresco dining. The common area courtyard has beautiful landscaping of palm trees, tropical plants, flowers, fountain and a large refreshing infinity edged pool and jetted whirlpool bath. Complimentary outdoor tables and lounge chairs are provided for relaxing and entertaining around the pool.

The beach in front of Luna is white powdery sand, and the crystal-clear blue-green ocean can be entered in front of the complex. The beach is furnished with lounge chairs for use only by Luna guests, and there are palm trees to relax under if you need a break from the sun.

Blessed with perennially sunny skies and a mild climate, Playa prides itself on a relaxing open-air, pedestrian lifestyle. It’s a place to recharge your batteries, find your adventurous side or spend an afternoon happily exploring the finer points of doing absolutely nothing at all! Playa provides a vibrant variety of natural and multicultural experiences any time of year. When the sun rises over the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean it all comes to life. First-rate golf, esteemed spa's, fine outdoors dining and an internationally acclaimed nightlife – the options of experiencing Playa are truly limitless.

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About: Mike and Maia call Lake Tahoe home, but love a great beach just about anywhere. They discovered Playa del Carmen in 2006 and have never looked back.

              Why Luna Encantada:
              Luna Encantada offers the best of Playa - right on the beach, one block from the lively Avenida and surrounded by the rich history and beautiful locales of the Mayan peninsula. They chose this development for its emenities, location, and proximity to everything that Playa has to offer.
