Isla Mujeres villa description

Villa de la Vida - This stunning, award-winning villa was designed by Mexico’s renowned architect Javier Munoz Menendez, whose personality and imagination created a masterpiece, a place that never ceases to elevate you. This engineering marvel is column-free with dramatic, cantilevered ceilings and sliding panes that disappear to fully open up the living area, blurring the boundaries between inside and out, maximizing majestic views, natural light and cool breezes blowing in off the water. Clean, graphic lines and high ceilings amplify the sense of openness.

Great architecture improves your life and this extraordinary villa gives aesthetic pleasure. Just a few of the options; have a large party or gathering on the top deck, spend hours lounging around the infinity pool, or relax in the lush, colourful garden.

Delight in the show at night, starting with spectacular sunsets that will take your breath away. Once the sun sets, enjoy the lights of Cancun, glistening across the water like a diamond necklace; the only sounds you will hear are from the cicadas and the birds.

Completed in 2006, this villa is completely secure and private with gates and high walls.

Amenities include: Five bedrooms – 3 King beds, 1 Queen bed, 2 Twin beds. 8 bathrooms. The large private Master Bedroom in lower level has double sinks and oversized rain showers; the 4 ensuite bedrooms in the upper level each have an open concept shower, a balcony area with chairs, and spectacular views of the blue Caribbean ocean. 3 powder bathrooms, one outside for pool guests.

Interior – 4500 sq.Ft. Terraces – 3000 sq. Ft. Maximum 10 guests.

Gourmet kitchen/dining and living area is completely open with mesmerizing views of the ocean. Large upper terrace with designer couches and chairs is an ideal setting for wedding receptions, corporate retreats, special events or just relaxing and luxuriating; an expansive sail (from Germany) makes a real statement. Lower garden terrace has comfortable sitting area; perfect for your morning coffee.

Infinity pool has sitting/lounging ledge around the perimeter (ideal for small children) and outdoor shower.

Home theatre with 60” led T.V. and surround-sound, six leather recliners; popcorn included. Two designer kitchens with high-end appliances (Sub-Zero fridges, Wolf cooktop, Miele dishwasher).
