Villa Lumina is simply and elegantly designed in an unmistakably tropical Mexican beachside setting. Where else can you watch pelicans fly by or view dolphins swimming while relaxing in a villa framed by palm trees?

No noise but the sea, just the occasional fisherman walking by - Villa Lumina is an unbeatable tropical getaway. An eco-friendly home, Villa Lumina is the perfect choice for enjoying the beauty of nature for people with criteria and taste.

Our beautifully designed beachfront villa has five lovely bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Our spacious kitchen allows large parties to cook together or just hang out at the bar while enjoying a glass of wine or an evening cocktail!

Villa Lumina is perfect for reunions and retreats with friends and family - enjoy our spacious living areas with comfortable sofas to chat, read and savour the beautiful views of kilometres of pure white sandy beach while listening to it’s rhythmical and relaxing waves.

Villa Lumina is ideal for time with friendretreats. This is the space for your group! Our enormous shady, social area affords enough room for any class. Our villa is designed with a large central area covered by a vaulted palm roof that provides ample space for large groups, movement classes and of course, festive parties and events.

Comments:
'Villa Lumina was the perfect retreat for our family. We could walk for hours on the beach, swim, do yoga, cook, read or just hang in the hammock and listen to the surf. The spaciousness of this seaside villa allowed each of us to enjoy our vacation and truly relax! So much better than a hotel!' Shoshana Shadow USA.

'After having spent a long weekend in 'Villa Lumina' I can highly recommend spending some time in such a
beautiful place. The views in every direction are breathtaking, inspiring and calming to the soul. I would
like to spend more time there.' Alex Muñuzuri, Mexico.

'The house is a spectacular open air villa that has a simple but very elegant design that makes you feel from the moment you step onto the impressive entrance, that you are sleeping on the beach in pure luxury. Noone actually wanted to leave the house and go into town because we had everything in our mini paradise.' Lauren Beam USA.

'We had an absolutely fantastic time. really really perfect. All of our friends were thrilled and we felt like heroes for finding it.' Bray Poor USA.

                          We (an anglo- american couple) built our home in Cumaná for a variety of reasons. It is an eco- condominium and all owners have to work towards preserving local flora and fauna. The beach is spectacular and the views stunning. The local cactuses provide a gorgeous contrast to the palm trees and pools, reminding us we are in Mexico :) The mountain range behind frames the view and truly makes it majestic. The homes are all carefully built and in harmony with the environment providing an incredibly attractive high-end but totally relaxed destination.

                          Cumaná is a beautiful condominium, located outside Puerto Escondido. It is truly paradise. Our home is located right on the beach, one of my favorite times of the day is the early morning - taking a cup of coffee and sitting and watching the birds, fish and sometimes dolphins go by. Sunset walks are a must and it is a gorgeous walk down to the lagoon towards Tomatal. I can never get enough of it!

                          You can also just hang out in the pool and watch the sea and the beach from there, it is truly, truly relaxing. I like nothing better to collapse in the seating area of the pool with a glass of white wine and a book, perfect!

                          Puerto Escondido itself is a bustling seaside town that has a lot going for it.

                          It has a fantastic surf scene and is home to the Mexpipe, consequently there are great opportunities for surf lessons with experienced teachers. My kids have taken them, the youngest was only 5 or 6 years old when she started. It's a wonderful way to get loads of exercise and really enjoy the sea.

                          There is great fishing for those who like to go out to see and many varieties of local and big fish, such as marlin and tuna can be caught here. There are several companies offering fishing trips and these can be booked on site.

                          You can waterski in the nearby Manialtepec lagoon and kayak there too, perfect for an afternoon trip!

                          If you like snorkelling there are many opportunities in Puerto's bays, one of my favourites is Manzanillo which has an amazing array of colourful fish.

                          Vespas and other mopeds or bikes can be rented and a couple of companies offer eco tours including horseback riding and white water rafting. In high season a company from Mexico City arrives and offers parachute jumping for the braver amongst us. Personally, I prefer going to the beach and looking for shells with the kids, or watching for dolphins!

                          If you feel like a movie or want to get a book, and you don't want to use our extensive libraries, pop down to Cinemar. They offer a unique beach cinema experience.

                          There is a great music scene in Puerto with live music every single weekend.

                          I love the restaurant and bar scene in Puerto and I love to leave it and come back to our beautiful home and enjoy the sounds of nature and the sea!

                          There are so many different restaurants, it's amazing. Traditional Mexican food, amazing pizzas and pastas, pan asian, new Mexican, slow food, you name it, you can find it there.

                          The bars are too many to mention and go from the upscale Guadua to the beach disco 'el tubo' with a myriad in between. Cocktails are delicious with fresh fruit and the beers always cold. A popular option is a fresh coconut with rum added, fantastic!

                          If you like cooking and want to take advantage of our great bbq area, you could check out the market. Well-stocked with super fresh local fish, meats, fruit and vegetables, all delicious and inexpensive. The spices are varied and their aroma wonderful.

                          You could also wander down to the Marina, a slightly elegant term for the area where the fishing boats unload their wares, and buy freshly caught fish, straight from the fisherman!

                          All in all Cumaná and Puerto Escondido really are the perfect holiday destination. There is something for every age and kids, teens and adults love the Pacific beach vibe and all the amenities available.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: This is our family beach home – we are lucky enough to visit often. It has been an amazing place to watch the kids grow up and share incredible experiences with them. My youngest daughter was only three when we built our home, she learned to swim and dive in our pool, as have many of her friends over the years. We have watched turtles lay their eggs on our beach, watched the eggs hatch, seen dolphins swim and play, made sand castles, gone snorkeling and learned to surf. We have walked our dogs on the beach at sunrise and sunset. My favorite birthdays and celebrations have been here. It is truly wonderful and we are blessed to have this home and share it with others.

                          Why the Owner Chose Puerto Escondido:
                          It is close to Puerto Escondido airport and only a beautiful hour's drive from Huatulco International airport. Puerto has fantastic food shops, surf shops and amenities. There are delicious restaurants and bars with live music in the evenings.And of course, it is home to Mexico´s premier surfing beach, Zicatela. There are also great beaches to learn surfing (and wonderful instructors), deep sea fishing, eco-tours and a huge variety of daytime activities. Cumana offered us the chance to enjoy an unspoilt beach and live on the sea. It has been an incredible experience for my family to see whales, dolphins, turtles all from our own home. We have spent incredible vacations there with friends and family, we always have magical times!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Puerto Escondido has been a firm family favorite for vacations and we absolutely LOVE the area. Once we saw Costa Cumaná’s perfect, unspoilt beaches we knew it was THE vacation spot for family and friends -kids and adults swim in the pool, enjoy the beach, snorkel, surf and watch dolphins, pelicans and turtles. Our beautiful home, which is right on the beach, sleeps 14,and is a wonderful place to relax and have fun with the people close to you.
