Run Away Friday! RAR30 – Villa Karina – Ocean Front Dream Home

Date: April 27, 2018

Happy Friday!

Spring has definitely arrived in Puerto Morelos!  Higher temperatures, a bit of rain (even a nice thunderstorm) and gentle breezes remind us that summer is on it’s way…

It’s a wonderful time to be here though.  The high season “crowds” (for lack of a better word…is it ever really crowded in Puerto Morelos?) are gone, the weather is still wonderful, the beach is wide open and everywhere you go you find a friendly face.  Ahhh, small town life!

Our Friday feature this week is the incomparable Villa Karina… a gorgeous ocean front home just north of the village.  If you’re going to dream, dream big!

This custom built, 4090 square foot home combines traditional styling with a contemporary flair to offer luxury ocean front living at it’s finest.  Indoors and outdoors blend together in perfect harmony to create an amenity rich residence that boasts 5 bedroom suites, a gourmet kitchen, an open and bright living room/dining room area, stunning outdoor living spaces, white sandy beach front and endless views of the Caribbean Sea.

The grand entryway with double height windows and a sweeping staircase draws you into the generous layout designed for family gatherings at the beach indoor/outdoor living and, of course, entertaining.  The Caribbean Sea is the focal point of the open and bright kitchen/dining/living room area, which boasts 10 ft ceilings and is comfortably appointed with beautiful furniture in crisp whites, turquoise blue and coastal tones to complement the gorgeous scene outside.  In addition to unobstructed views of the Caribbean, the recently renovated kitchen features a sleek design, granite counters, an island with a generously sized farm sink, and high end appliances.  The ground floor also features a half-bath, a spacious bedroom with en suite bath and laundry room.

Upstairs you will find a beautifully appointed master suite with king size bed, walk in closet and en suite bath.  Step through the sliding glass doors and you’ve got the perfect terrace to enjoy a cup of coffee while you watch the sun rise over the sea.  The terrace is shared by another guest room with en suite bath. The third guest suite has a partial ocean view as well, and the fourth is equally roomy, with an en suite bath and a view towards the lush mangrove.

You’ll love the view from the roof deck — 360 degrees of Caribbean blue and emerald green.  Complete with a wet bar, comfortable seating and the ocean breeze, this is sure to be a favorite spot for enjoying a cocktail while listening to the waves under the stars.

Ocean front living is outdoor living and this home doesn’t disappoint.  In addition to the terraces and roof deck, the covered patio off the living and dining area is perfect for outdoor dining.  The pool deck is spacious and surrounded by lush tropical gardens.  The palapa area is the icing on the cake — a shaded seating area just off the beach, perfect for lounging or entertaining guests.  The beach itself is a dream — white powder sand leading to cool blue sea.  The Great Meso American Reef is just offshore, which means that the sea is calm and perfect for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding or just floating….

Three Things We Love About This Home:

(this should really say “what DON’T we love about this home…!)

  1. Caribbean vibes – the contemporary, updated, clean design of this home puts a smile on our faces! Beautiful, calm, with pops of Caribbean blue throughout this home serves to complement the beautiful scenery outside.
  2. The kitchen!!!  You don’t have to be a gourmet cook to recognize a great kitchen!  And the best part?  The ocean view while you’re cooking!
  3. The ocean front palapa seating area.  What a great idea!  Comfortable covered seating directly ocean front – perfect for entertaining, relaxing, dining, yoga, you name it…
