About the property

3 Bedroom Home with Infinity Pool and Ocean View

This architectural masterpiece sits above the famous beaches of Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa. The curved shape of the roof is inspired by the rolling waves of the Pacific that are visible from almost every inch of this amazing ocean view home. The ceiling reaches heights of over 18 feet allowing for cool air to circulate and the ocean breezes to enter.

Located in Mal Pais, the Wave House is just a short drive away from the beach at Playa Carmen and the town of Santa Teresa. This beautiful ocean view home features 3 air conditioned bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. There is also an additional loft area above the kitchen that is perfect for kids or additional guests.

The large swimming pool is just steps away from the living room and covered patio. The pool is surrounded by lush jungle and there are barely any neighbors in sight so you’ll find this to be the perfect hillside getaway.

About Candida Romero

The land was purchased twenty years ago when I first began visiting the small villages of Santa Teresa and Malpais and there was nothing but jungle around me! So, I finally built this house for me as a art studio - as I am an artist based in Paris and Corsica, 1/2 US, 1/2 Caribbean parentage -just in the last two years. The houses reflects my artistic sensibilities and desire to be at one with nature and disturb as little as possible to this virgin jungle.

Candida Romero purchased this house in 2012

Why Candida Romero chose Malpais Area

Because no one else dared build so high up, yet so close to the ocean! There were no roads when I first visited this site! I had them all put in - and now there are a few hotels and homes (but out of sight), while my site is still a protected jungle with views overlooking the sea and down the coast to the most protected nature preserve on Earth: the Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve!

What makes this house unique

Just minutes by car to the village where there are many new restaurants and shops, while at the same time the original flavor of this fishing and surf town has remained unchanged. The breathtaking views and the nice cross air flow makes it comfortable even in the hot season!
