Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I loves the multicolored Caribbean Sea and the intense greens of the tropical flora. I've been coming to the Mexican Caribbean since I was nineteen and have brought my children here since they were small. I am an artist and a retired art teacher and love the light here. I am an avid diver and feel very much at home on my wonderful beach.

Why the Owner Chose El Placer, Q.R., Mexico:
I fell in love with Mahahual, Costa Maya because it reminded me of the Mexico I knew many years ago before the over-development of Cancun and its surrounding area. I've always loved the Caribbean Sea and am so pleased that I realized my dream of having a home right on the beach just steps away from its turquoise blue waters. I enjoy the year round warm weather, being near Mayan ruins and being able to go scuba diving often. I choose this location so I could have a large beach and be surrounded by nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I fully enjoy the peace and tranquility I find on my special 213 foot beach. My beach house has a wonderful 2nd floor large terrace with access from each bedroom, great for watching the sun rise, sun set or gazing at the stars. The sea awaits me for my early morning swim. I head back to the house for a delicious coffee which I often drink on the expansive patio. I love looking out at the palm trees and the shore beyond, a 100 feet away. Snorkeling in front of the house or scuba diving with one of Mahahual's dive shops are also favorites. I relish reading a great book followed by an afternoon nap in one of the colorful hammocks on the patio. Taking a walk along the beach and observing various land and water birds along with tropical animals is a delight. I even saw a jaguar once.
