About the property

Villa, 9 Bedrooms, 9.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

Brisa Caribe/Caribbean Breeze: This 6500 square-foot luxurious and unique oceanfront villa is one of a kind.

Available directly from the owner, this 9 bedroom home that sleeps 20, can also accommodate smaller groups at a reduced rate. We will lock off bedrooms to suit the size of your group and adjust the rate accordingly. The locked off bedrooms are not rented to anyone else and you still have full access to this large property with its many amenities. This is ideal for those groups who may not be sure how many they will have. Reserve it today to lock down the dates, then add more rooms as more of your group confirms they can make it.

The villa is decorated with unusual objects de art and furniture the owners have gathered during a lifetime of travel and life abroad. To showcase this eclectic collection, the bedrooms have each been done in a specific theme. You can spend a week in Africa, Persia, Buenos Aires, the Far East, Mediterranean, Caribbean, South America, Mexico or follow the Bombay trading route. Not neglecting your comfort, all bedrooms have high quality pillow top mattresses and linens, private security safes, CD/i-Pod/radios, alarm clocks and attached bathrooms with showers, hair dryers, plush towels and comfy bathrobes.

A fabulous kitchen, which should please even the most discerning chef. One indoor and three outdoor dining areas. One indoor and two outdoor bars, numerous terraces, an entertainment center with satellite TV offering the networks and more than 20 movie channels. A video DVD and book library, puzzles and games, wireless internet connection, XBOX video game system, two private pools with waterfalls, hammocks under a palapa, volleyball or soccer on the sand, snorkeling right in front of the villa, tranquil courtyard with fountain in back, telephone, gas and charcoal bar-b-ques, the list goes on...

Two housekeepers, a gardener and a handyman, ensure things are kept clean and working well. An English speaking property manager will assist you with your check in and is available should you have a problem. Massage and a cook are available at the villa for an extra charge.

Walking distance to numerous restaurants, shops, internet cafes, pharmacy, car rental, tour operators, church, swim with dolphins, golf, tennis, deep sea fishing charters, sailing and other attractions.

About The Owner

Before making Puerto Aventuras our permanent home, we were fortunate enough to travel to some of the far corners of the world where we have been privileged to meet people and see things that normal travel does not often allow. Living and working in remote and exotic places has given us an eclectic taste and provided a collection of art and furniture which we so proudly showcase in our home villa Brisa Caribe, which we love to share with family, friends and guests. We still travel 1 to 3 months of the year and continue to bring home things to share with our guests and remind us of our travels.

Why The Owner chose Puerto Aventuras

Drawn to the area by the warm weather, great diving, friendly people and easy access for our family and friends, we purchased the 3 lots and then designed the home to fit our lifestyle and vast collection of 'stuff'. We wanted a home that was both comfortable for 2 but functions well for a large group. Whenever you bring a group together you need to have places for the group to gather as one and to escape as a single or couple. Experience has shown that our design and how we have set up our home have allowed us to reach that goal.

What makes this villa unique

You will not find another home anywhere in this area that is anything like Brisa Caribe. We landed here with a 40 foot container from the Middle East where we were living and a 20 foot container from Canada where we first originated. With this we set up each of the 9 bedrooms with a different theme. Additionally there are many places around the home and property to spread out or hideout as the case might be.

With restaurants, shops, activities and services all within walking distance of the villa, the location is ideal for most because a vehicle is not needed and it is easy to slip away and do things or to spend time away from the group.

The home is loaded with many little extras that make it a home and not just a vacation rental set up from the local stores.

We encourage you to visit our web site and see more details including our guest comments page.

Fun for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a lot of vacation homes but this was the best experience we have had. It is not easy to find a place that meets the needs of senior citizens, older adults, younger adults, and infants but this property accomplishes all of that. The house itself has so many places to hang out and things to do. Between the pools, volleyball court, beaches, and so many places to relax, our 20 something kids always had something to do.

The local area also delivered with shopping, snorkeling, scuba diving, dolphin watching, and so many places to explore. We only left the area for one day to visit the Tulum ruins. You will want to rent the golf carts through Bruno while you are there as it is a large area.

We chose to use the service of the Mexican cooks for the week and that did not disappoint. What a wonderful way to experience the food of the culture and to interact with the people. The cooks and household staff became family to us.

Best family vacation we have ever done! Thank you Doug, Shelly, Desiree, and staff!!

Wonderful Week Away!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Brisa Caribe in late February and were able to relax as soon as we arrived. The owners were extremely accommodating and created a sense that we were truly at a home away from home. Each of the rooms in Brisa Caribe has a different theme attached to it and is adorned with authentic artifacts from the area that it is modeled after. We stayed in the "honeymoon" suite which was aptly named the "Bombay Room" and held wonderful artifacts from the area. We awoke to a beautiful ocean front view every morning and the rooms were expertly cleaned by the time we got home from our adventures in the afternoon.

The property was well kept and the fridge was always full of cool drinks. We were a quick walk away from the main restaurant and shopping area of Puerto Aventuras, as well as the Dolphin Adventure and fishing expedition area. A 20 min cab ride brought us to Playa Del Carmen when we wanted more options and the local adventure sites were minutes away.

I would extremely recommend the property to others as we were able to "get away from it all" and still have all the luxuries of home in a setting that was relaxing, fun adventurous, and beautiful. Plenty of room for large groups and a ton of fun for even a couple to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful villa!

this is the perfect house and location. We rented it for family Christmas and to celebrate my mother's 80th and we were all impressed. We are plotting now when we can go back. The staff was fantastic and if you can hire chef Tina and the mexican chefs- you won't be disappointed.

Spectacular Home + Exceptional Location + Amazing Service + Epic Family Vacation=Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Brisa Caribe over Spring Break with 5 families: children ages from 3-13yrs. We wanted to rent a home that would allow all of us to be together yet have space to go off and relax or walk to town...this house was the perfect set up for our group. Doug was spectacular to work with as we planned our vacation and helped to answer all question quickly prior to our stay. Everything from transportation to extended stay options (flight left late on check out day), to our daily chef services, to greeting us/walking thru the house. Speaking of Chef Services...Tina was AMAZING! Hiring a chef was a luxury for our families- but was the second best decision (booking Brisa Caribe was #1) and she spoiled us the entire week!! It truly turns a vacation into a vacation for everyone when Tina is there. Her ability to create amazing meals for the adults and then modify for "kid friendly palates" was perfect.

So here are some key take away of why this home and experience was the perfect vacation for our group:

1.) The layout of the home. Allowed for adults to have master bedrooms with private ensuite and kids to have their own spaces plus plenty of gathering spaces inside and out.

2.) Beach Front Location with Private Pool. The beach area in front of the home was fantastic-clean sand and though "public" you truly have your own private beach with they small retaining wall. The pools were perfect size for our group.Of course dominated usually by the kids it was piece of mind that we knew ALL the kids in the pool and really made it so much easier to monitor pool activity -we did not have to look far! (We did visit an all inclusive for a few hours after leaving Brisa Caribe (due to the plane times) and within minutes of arriving pool side the relaxation we had at our home was over in the over crowded pool trying to keep track of our kids..We did not know how good we had it!)

3.) 5 Star Accommodations & Service. The home is more beautiful than the pictures and yet very family friendly. The beds, linens, kitchen & kitchen stock were top notch and the staff was exceptional. I have used VRBO over the past 8 years booking vacations so I have experience with great owners/managers and less professional people. Doug is at the top of his game.

Six months later we still talk about our amazing vacation at Brisa Caribe and hope to return once again...Doug thank you for spoiling our families with everything Mexico and Brisa Caribe has to offer!

Outstanding family experience at the Brisa Caribe Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had our first family "Union" for 20 family members ages 1 to 56 at the Villa Brisa Caribe. It was an absolutely wonderful vacation. The children and teenagers were never bored and the adults had a great, relaxing week. Both the owner, Doug Wasmuth, and his virtual and on-site team were attentive and immediately responsive to any questions or concerns I had. They made most of the arrangements for our daytime adventures as well as the local Mexican cooks we engaged for the week. It was so easy to have a day of adventure and not have to worry about breakfast or lunch preparations and the food was fantastic. Even the babies had a great time playing in the pool, walking on the beach, investigating the wildlife and singing karaoke. All of the adventures we took were fabulous and the transports that were arranged for us made it very easy for us to get around. The weather was great (it only rained on one morning) and the Villa was beautiful and well kept up. Everything was perfect. We could not have asked for better accommodations. The family had such a great time that they want to come back for our 2nd family "reunion" in a couple of years.

Perfect house to relax and recharge

  • 5 of 5

After staying at a big resort in Mexico last Spring we decided to rent a house this time with another family and somehow found Brisa Caribe. It turned out to be a great choice, a few highlights:

- The information, follow-up, attention to detail and documentation is outstanding. Doug and his team arranged for transportation, provided all of the information we could have asked for in advance, and the on-site staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It felt like home the day we arrived.

- Puerto Adventuras is a relaxed town with a small golf course and tennis courts available (bring your own racquet), and numerous nearby excursion opportunities. Kantun-Chi is a 5 minute cab ride away, a great public beach Ichpu-Ha (sp?) a few minutes away as well. Numerous restaurants (esp Italian) in town and fishing, snorkeling and diving excusions at the Marina a block or two away. Great proximity.

- While there is no beach directly in front of the house you can walk over to Dreams Hotel and enjoy that beach or on calm days go snorkeling right out front - lots to see.

- I highly recommend having the staff prepare meals in the home. Its very reasonable, about the cost of going out, and the food is outstanding.

- For fun at the house there are numerous games, books and a 200+ DVD collection at your disposal. All of the little things were done right and the home is very well maintained - good water pressure, lots of hot water, good A/C if you need it, bottled water, lots of ceiling fans, etc.

- The weather was very moderate for this time of year, we were never really hot and hardly ran the A/C as there is always a nice onshore breeze, and lots of hammocks and chairs for napping outside.

- We were a bit concerned about being close to the busy Dream Hotel but it was not a problem.

In summary, this is a very unique property, first rate in all respects.
