Property description

This new home is located at the approximate 14 kilometer point on the main beach road between Mahahual and Xcalak, south of Mahahual. This road is a dirt road skirting the Caribbean, passing resorts, restaurants and private houses. Additionally there is the 'fast road' easily accessible and allows you to be in town within 15 minutes.

Casa Costa Cristal is located in the very best location of all Costa Maya either North or South of Mahahual. The area is known for its beautiful water. It also is known as Puerto Angel.

The area is full of fun activities. You are able to stay at the home and enjoy the beautiful water, walk the white sanded beaches, and if you would like have snack/lunch/dinner at the new Almaplena Resort and Beach Club , located a short 5 minute walk away. Short drives allow access to other fine restaurants.

Depending on the time of year the town of Mahahual becomes a cruise ship destination, sometimes with as many as three ships in dock. The town becomes alive with travelers strolling the Malecon. It is of course equally as fun doing this without the excitement of the docked cruise ships, which provide you an opportunity to see a very relaxed little Mexican fishing village.

This area is known for its beauty, its fishing and especially its snorkeling and scuba activities. There is the famous Chinchoro reef and well as many smaller reefs just off shore.

Casa Costa Cristal is a 2600 s.f. home with palapa covered patios, with30 meters or about 100 feet of beautiful, white sand beach frontage, facing the majestic Caribbean Sea. It is surrounded by tropical and beach plants, including palm trees with coconuts, beautiful white beach lilies, and many other native trees and plants. The west side of the property borders a thick tropical jungle from which a variety of harmless animals wander from. You can walk in the evening while watching a 'light show' of fire flies.

Casa Costa Cristal is a new two bedroom with office, two story home. It has a fully equipped modern kitchen with double stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, a gas range,
and granite counter top with a kitchen island with seating. The walk-in pantry allows plenty of storage for your vacation staples. The kitchen is fully equipped with a selection of cooking utensils, pots and pans, plates, glasses, cups, coffee maker, and a blender for mixing margaritas in the evening. We provide plenty of bottled drinking water during your stay.

The first floor also has the guest bedroom with easy access to the downstairs bath. This bedroom has a queen sized bed, spacious closet and private porch with covered palapa roof.
The bathroom has a travertine stone shower, and travertine slab-stone vanity with storage.

The office is located on this level. There is a sleeping banco here that can be used for lounging as well as extra sleeping. The office is equipped with a tzalam desk.

The Great Room is large and spacious with 14' ceilings. The room has two ceiling fans, and East/West clerestory windows to provide cooling breezes for those 'warmer' Caribbean days. There is a TV with satellite service (SKY). At one end of the room is a tzalam Dining table with chairs, made by a famous local woodworker who actually lives just a few houses away.



Upstairs is the Master Suite. The bedroom has a king size bed. It opens to an awesome private porch, covered with a palapa roof and overlooks the beautiful Caribbean Sea, just 30' away.
The bath contains his/her closets with built in drawers. The large shower has travertine stone walls and floor and the double vanity, with plenty of storage has a travertine slab stone top.

There are two hammocks and a hammock chair for your leisurely use. Lounge around and read your favorite book or to take a traditional Mexican Siesta

Since there is no electrical service along the beach road, electricity at Casa Costa Cristal is provided by a state of the art solar system. The system consists of a bank of roof-top solar panels, inverter/controller and battery banks. There is a back-up generator that provides power in the case of overcast weather. The house electrical is US standard 120v power. The house uses eco-friendly low wattage bulbs, water heater and stove, to conserve as much as possible. We ask your cooperation to conserve electricity at all times.

Casa Costa Cristal is equipped with a satellite dish antenna system, providing a clear signal of a variety of SKY. Mexican channels. There is also an internet wireless connection available for your use.

For your convenience there are chaise lounge chairs and other beach chairs available either on the water's edge or on the covered porches of the house.

On the property is a casita which houses a young couple, Moises and maricruz who will attend to your needs and watch the home while you are away. Daily room service is available at an extra charge.

We are happy to help you create an itinerary of activities, dining recommendations etc for a great stay at Casa Costa Cristal.

Location

Car: Recommended

There is much to do! Our home is located on a crystal white beach, with blue water. Snorkeling, fishing, walking the shore, swimming, sunbathing, laying in the hammock and reading, walk to the nearby restaurant and have a refreshment, snack or meal, all at your immediate reach. Very short distances are other very good restaurants (beach resorts), cenotes, incredible archaeological sites (Mayan), scuba lessons, cooking lessons, learn Spanish or Mayan, or whatever. Belize is an hour away by car and you can take a ferry from Chetumal to the famous Belize island of Ambergris Caye. Please contact us for many more suggestions.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are A J and Mary from Sonoma, California. A J is a retired residential designer and RE developer. Mary is a registered nurse. We have five children and 10 grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose El Placer, Q.R., Mexico:
Always aware that we would retire in Mexico, we spent several years traveling the country. When we arrived in the Costa Maya we immediately knew this was it. Being builders, we designed and built our beach home. We have been overwhelmed by how welcoming the population is here, both native and expatriot.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There quite simply is always something to do or not do as your mood dictates!
