Playacar house description

Casa del Sol – Altavista offers guests an extraordinary and professional experience. Our full service vacation consultants will make your stay a stress free and memorable vacation from the moment you arrive to the day you leave this amazing Peninsula.

“Casa del Sol – Altavista” is a luxurious villa located in the exclusive gated community of Playacar Phase 1. With 24 hour security you will feel safe as you take a quick 5 minute stroll to the famous 5th avenue where you will find Mexican shopping treasures, miles of restaurants and exciting nightlife. Altavista has 8,500 square feet of spacious living to enjoy including 6 large bedrooms (some with ocean views), each with their own private bath and 2 half baths. Each bedroom has its own ensuite with shower and two with jacuzzi tubs, Ipod docks in each bedroom, 9 Plasma televisions (1 in each bdrm & 1 in the living area) and DVD players in each bedroom. All bedrooms have been finished with elegant and tasteful Persian rugs.

2 additional bonus bedrooms are available for very large groups, each with their own private bathroom.

This property is unique in that it is adjoined by a central courtyard to our other villa “Casa del Sol – Vista”, meaning view! The tropical palms and Japanese grass courtyard is only available to rentals in our Altavista villa or if both villas are rented by the same group it can be used as a common area for both houses. Please see listing ID# 360355 for further details. Casas del Sol Vista and Altavista can be rented separately or together!

We have not forgotten about our smaller traveling parties that would like to indulge in the luxuries, ocean views and exceptional services of this villa. We have prorated our prices according to our guests’ desired number of bedrooms with a minimum of a 4 night stay.

The décor presents a comfortable atmosphere with all of the conveniences of modern living. The open and airy third floor includes our fully equipped kitchen finished with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, two fridges and granite counter tops. We have everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal along with your favorite blended beverage. Just off the kitchen you have a long wood finished dining area with seating for all your guests. Read your favorite book in our sofa lounge area or enjoy a game of billiards with your friends and family. The living area is furnished with comfortable white sofas where you can enjoy a movie on our large Plasma TV with satellite television or watch your favorite DVD. Amenities that we provide for our guests include shampoo & conditioner, liquid shower gel, body lotion, hair dryers, kleenex, bath and beach towels, umbrellas & beach chairs, wireless internet, a large cooler and the villa house phone to make your reservations for fun filled tours. Villa phone is for local calls only!

Take a breath of fresh ocean air as you step out into the ample exterior patio and balcony areas. All outdoor living areas are equipped with SPA style lounge furniture and dining areas.
Enjoy the breathtaking ocean view from the infinity edge pool located on the fourth floor sky terrace. You won’t be able to resist sinking your feet into the miles of sugary white beaches in front of the villa or take a splash in the Caribbean ocean.

Take advantage of the many services our management team has to offer. Let us take care of you from start to finish for a stress free and relaxing vacation. Casas del Sol is a one stop shop with a range of services from special events planning, a professional gourmet chef, airport shuttle service, tours, fridge stocking, concierge services and more……

I have enjoyed living in paradise and want to assist you in making the vacation of your dreams. Relax and be stress free knowing there are no communication barriers and full service vacation consultants that can assist you with your many vacation desires.

A buffet is available all day long and is very delicious. The fresh fruit juices around the park are thirst quenching. It is an experience like no other! Tulum is one of my favorite places to go and relax and be at peace. There is no other place on earth as tranquil as the soft white beaches of Tulum. I love to enjoy a meal at the beautiful Mezzanine restaurant on my way back to Playa. Thai food as fresh as you have ever had. The restaurant / boutique hotel overlooks the Caribbean ocean. The sunsets are tranquilizing.
