Property description

LAST MINUTE SPECIAL (booked within 30 days of arrival): $1950/week (excluding major holidays).

Enjoy the best of the Mayan Riviera and the Yucatan Peninsula. Come home to the comfort and charm of Casa Colel Luna (Lady Moon House)!

This spacious, five bedroom, five bath home with its gorgeous private pool is located in the secure, gated community of Playacar, Phase 1, less than two blocks from the clean white sands and warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. It's just a hop, skip, and cha-cha-cha to the friendly town of Playa del Carmen and the ferry to Cozumel (a 30 minute ride).

At Casa Colel Luna you can relax in your hammock and enjoy the cooling breeze and stunning views of ocean, sky, trees, and your next door neighbor - the ancient Mayan Ruin of Xaman Ha. Green lawns, bright flowers, and tall, shady trees surround Casa Colel Luna. A sparkling swimming pool and waterfalls provide refreshment for the senses. Little ones will love the separate shallow play-pool and grown-ups will appreciate the swim-up bar. The garden area includes magical water features, gazebo, and patio with built-in BBQ grill and seating for up to 20 guests.

Casa Colel Luna offers many amenities, including satellite HDTV, DVD, stereo, iPod players, all kitchen equipment and appliances including microwave. Laundry room has washer and dryer.

There is A/C in 3 bedrooms. The two bedrooms without A/C are very large and airy; they have ceiling fans and additional room fans can be added. There is wheelchair accessibility on the ground floor.

The bed set up is follows: Master suite 'Sirenas' (Mermaids): King bed, private bath with tub/shower. Penthouse suite 'Estrella del Mar' (Star of the Sea): Two king beds, private bath with shower and ocean view. Master suite 'Girasol' (Sunflower): King bed, A/C, and private bath with tub/shower. Bedroom 'Rosa': Double bed and A/C. Bedroom 'Tigres' (Jaguars): Double bed and twin bed. This room is also air-conditioned. 'Rosa' and 'Tigres' share a bathroom with shower.

All rooms have terraces and are cooled by ocean breezes and ceiling fans. Pets will be considered--ask us! Maid service is provided three days a week (or more on request). There is an English-speaking manager to assist you and answer your questions. A wonderful cooking staff is also available. We can also provide child care, grocery shopping assistance, wedding planning and airport transfer.

Our spectacular swimming pool is designed as a miniature 'cenote' (a natural freshwater pool), complete with in-pool bar seating, waterfalls and a separate shallow play pool.

Casa Colel Luna is comfortable and spacious, ideal for families or groups of friends. We can accommodate large groups in neighboring homes as well. We are happy to provide additional information on our villa and activities in the area (including photos) on request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We are supposed to be retired but find ourselves busier than ever. We've been sharing our Playa del Carmen properties with satisfied guests since we built Casa Colel Luna in 1996. Since then we've acquired a small coffee farm in Kona, Hawaii, so we are kept busy working on the farm, relaxing and exploring in the Yucatan, and being with family in Santa Cruz, California.

Why the Owner Chose Playacar:
We bought the property in 1993 and built the home in 1996 when Playa del Carmen was a still a sleepy town off the tourist path. The location next to a Mayan ruin with a view of the sparkling Caribbean was just magical and irresistable--and it still is.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love our beautiful beach--just a 1-minute walk away--with its fine white sand and warm, clear water. Playa is such a fun town, very laid back, but also sophisticated--with fabulous restaurants and great shoping and entertainment. We love exploring hidden beaches, cenotes, Mayan ruins, and remote villages. The diving and snorkeling spots are some of the best in the world and easily accessible. Staying home and relaxing in a hammock or floating in the pool with a cool Corona or margarita is pretty good too.
