Looking for that special vacation villa with all the ingredients for the ideal Caribbean holiday, away from it all? Then choose Villa Casona Palms. It is one of Costa Maya's newest secluded luxury properties with its private beach and all rooms facing the sea. Enter the main house and step into the open great room that has all-round wooden latticed windows. You gaze immediately onto the palm beach and ocean and feel the cool breezes. Then step through double doors out onto an enormous covered terrace where you can dine or simply relax facing the ocean. Or, take a few steps to the covered BBQ area to cook the day’s catch ... and have a siesta in a hammock afterwards! The villa has been beautifully furnished and decorated, striking a wonderful balance between rustic charm and modern eco-elegance. The master bedroom and guest casita (third bedroom) have king size beds, and there are two full size beds in the second bedroom. Each bedroom has its own balcony overlooking the ocean.
The villa is fully self-contained and services (cleaning, linens, bottled water, electricity, propane gas, internet, use of kayaks, etc.) are included in the rental rate. The remote property has an exceptionally wide beach front (55 metres, 183 feet), lined with mature coconut -bearing palm trees. It offers great views and seclusion. The sea in front, protected by the coral reef 500 yards offshore, is always calm, affording safe swimming for all ages. You can swim out to the reef and snorkel and, if you are into scuba-diving, there are several dive centres in the nearby village of Mahahual. Mahahual has a number of restaurants and souvenir shops, particularly busy on cruise-ship days, after which you might want to retire to your bit of tranquil paradise. This is a complete home that can be rented either as a 2-bedroom villa for 4-6 persons (2 on convertible couches), or with an additional double-bedroom casita. Be sure to view all the photos – they’ll give you a true impression of this idyllic property.

Our villa is located on a secluded part of the coast, about 35 km. (35-40 minutes drive) north of Mahahual which, in turn, is about a 4 hour drive south of Cancun. For those wanting to get out and about while at the villa - highly recommended - renting a car is best. It is a very simple drive, mainly on the excellent highway 307, through Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Felipe Carillo Puerto and Limones. Because the villa is secluded, we recommend guests to stock up on groceries on the way. The local village has a number of food & beverage shops but, as an alternative, there is an F&B concierge service available. All these are described in the Guest Book that is available at the villa and mailed to you before you leave home.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:Our villa combines the style of white Mediterranean villas with Mayan touches (see photos). From the villa, you walk straight to your private beach and the warm waters of the Caribbean! All rooms face the Caribbean Sea, enjoy marvellous views, are very light and have the sea breeze constantly flowing through wooden louvered shutters and doors. The villa is spacious (4000 sq. ft.) yet easy to keep clean! Whilst the interior is delightful, you will find yourself constantly enjoying the unique outdoor features of the property and exploring the near deserted coastline. Be sure to view all the photos – they’ll give you a true impression of this idyllic property.
More Leisure Activities: Boating, Kayaking, Surfing.

Why the Owner Chose Mahahual: After retiring, we looked worldwide for a truly idyllic location for a second home where we could get away from the often harsh European winters. It is within easy reach of North America and Europe. We chose this spot for its beauty, seclusion, tranquillity, ideal swimming waters, year-round warm weather and friendly community. We also wanted a plot of beachfront land on which to build our dream vacation house.
