Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are both born and raised 'Virginians' but have always had a love for travel to wonderful sunny locations! We currently live in Charlottesville, VA, also known as the famous home for the 3rd President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson.
Why the Owner Chose Villas del Mayab: After traveling to many areas throughout all of Mexico in the past 15 years, the beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal blue water of Playa del Carmen called our name. We love the location of 'Playa' as it offers 2 easy airports ~ Cancun International is 40 minutes North of Playa and Cozumel International is a 30 minute ferry ride to Playa. We researched locations all over the Mexican Riviera, before settling on Mi Casa Amarilla. We love this location in this gated Playacar community as we are a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to all shopping and restaurants on 5th Avenue. There is really no need for a car when you are at Mi Casa Amarilla! Additionally, this home offers usage of the par 72 Playacar Golf Course and we are located at hole #3 ~ This home is spacious beautifully appointed and comfortable for a small or large group.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: This home really gives you a lovely Mexican feel, with the red tile roofs, tile flooring and granite throughout. We have added all the comforts of our US home to this Mexican home and complemented with original Mexican artwork. We love relaxing with an ice cold drink in our private plunge pool in the evenings!
