It’s the end of a busy week for us – closings, listings, showings and getting ready for another closing next week – whew!
Luckily we live in paradise, so it’s hard to feel too terrible about a crazy busy work week… I would rather have a crazy week here than in a high rise in downtown Denver, for example. And I love Denver, but there’s no Caribbean Sea there…
Today we are featuring Casa Marcella – an amazing ocean front property just north of main seaside village of Puerto Morelos, Mexico. It’s hard to know where to start with describing this property, except to say that if you’ve had a dream about living on a secluded beach in Mexico, this place was probably in your dream.
Twenty meters of pristine white sandy beach ocean front, main house with 3 bedroom suites (including a main floor master suite), kitchen/dining/living area, every room with amazing unobstructed views of the Caribbean. There are also two guest casitas, each with their own kitchenette and bathroom, each opening out onto the gorgeous courtyard with pool, outdoor kitchen and dining area. There’s off-street, covered parking and a two-story utility building including a caretaker’s suite, workroom and laundry room. The whole property exudes old Mexico charm with it’s beautiful craftsmanship and hand-painted tiles throughout.
Three things we LOVE about this property:
- 20 meters of wide, white sandy beach and the Caribbean Sea beyond = heaven on earth.
- This property is HUGE – over 1000 square meters – you don’t find many opportunities to own such a big lot so close to the ocean around here (anywhere?)
- Versatility – there are so many possibilities for this property! This is a great home for family vacations, and/or you could live in the house and rent out the guest casitas, or live in a guest casita and rent the house out, or just rent the whole property out when you’re not using it. You can add more rental units, you can go up another level on the main house and/or add a roof deck (roof decks are all the rage now – beautiful spot for a palapa, jacuzzi, bar – you name it!)
Here are some photos and of course you can find even more on the listing page – RAR01:
But what about the location, you ask? This property is situated perfectly – just 20 minutes south of the Cancun airport and less than 10 minutes north of the charming coastal village of Puerto Morelos – the Mayan Riviera’s last, best kept secret! Puerto Morelos offers a variety of great restaurants and bars with live music most nights. Plenty of unique shopping opportunities, a cooking school, the Marine Biology University of Mexico, world class snorkeling and SCUBA diving, marina, botanic gardens, cenotes, zip lining, jungle spas, the list goes on and on. Need more action? The glittering hotel zone of Cancun is a 20 minute drive north and Playa del Carmen with it’s exciting 5th Avenue is a 20 minute drive south down the coast.
