Property description

Amid the warm Mexican Caribbean climate, spectacular natural beauty and stunning Mayan culture, Casa Whitley inspires relaxation, tranquility and a true retreat from everyday life. Located on the Riviera Maya, in the exclusive gated resort community of Playacar (40 minutes south of the Cancun airport), Casa Whitley is an exquisite hideaway for only the most discriminating guests. The sun-drenched ambiance is reflected through the simple yet elegant architecture of the Spanish Colonial design by architect Angel Eslea. Interiors were designed by the owner, renowned Connecticut interior decorator, Carol Whitley.
Double height ceilings, rough-sewn wood beams, skylights and custom Talavera tiles add to the home's unique style. A Mayan waterfall spills into the sparkling swimming pools reflecting a lush landscape of tropical plants and palms. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen awaits the amateur chef. The large living room has a 18-foot wrap around sofa, 2 large rattan arm chairs and antique coffee table. The center piece of the dining room is a massive 9-foot mahogany table and rattan arm chairs to encourage hours of dining pleasure. All the main rooms spill out onto the terra cotta tiled terrace and the pools beyond. The Casa is perfectly situated on the 4th hole of the beautiful and challenging Robert Von Hagge Golf Course. The Spa at Playacar Golf Club, within easy walking distance, offers luxurious and relaxing treatments.
Four bedrooms and a master suite sleep a total of 12 guests. Four and a half bathrooms, some with double sinks, a sky-lit tub and showers, are each enhanced with hand-made blue and white tiles. Each upstairs bedroom has its own terrace. The Casa is fully air conditioned with individual room controls.
Our concierge, Maria, will check on you daily. She will arrange transportation, private chef service, reservations for spa, restaurant, golf and sightseeing. Every detail to make your vacation truly memorable.
Only a short walk away (less than a mile) is the beach, ferry boat to Cozumel and Playa's famed 'La Quinta' (5th Ave). The pedestrian street is lined with many shops and international cafes. La Quinta comes alive at night with strolling musicians and lively international conversations. But the best of Playa is the miles of silky white beaches kissed by the sparkling turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
The friendly atmosphere of Casa Whitley, its romantic nights, myriad of daytime activities and its location in the heart of the Mexican Riviera Maya, make it the perfect place to spend your vacation.
