About Villa El Castillo Maya
Villa El Castillo Maya (The Mayan Castle) is a new 5 bedroom, waterfront residence on the barrier island of Isla Mujéres, Mexico, a 20 minute ferry ride from Puerta Juárez minutes from the city of Cancun on the Yucatán Peninsula. Come, relax in the gentle breezes and spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, while soaking in the seaside pool. The whole house can be rented any time of year. Guest suites are available depending on the season (check availability).
Custom designed by the owner to combine the best features of island living with the comfort and luxury to which you are accustomed, El Castillo Maya has two beautiful palapa areas for your relaxation and enjoyment. The “Tortuga Palapa” on the second level just outside of the Tortuga Suite to the open terrace where there is a private entrance to the Master Suite. Up another level above the Master Bedroom Suite is “The Blue Moon Palapa” , a large rooftop terrace, partially shaded featuring a colorful crescent moon bar with a blue glass-block base topped with turquoise blue glass crystal. With lots of bar stools and lounge chairs, friends, this is an incredible place to meet with family and to enjoy refreshments and conversation at your own home!
Island-themed tile and stone handwork can be seen throughout on the floors of the palapas and in and around the house. Carved rails adorning the exterior staircases and the interior stairs and carved handrails are fashioned of salam, a local exotic hardwood noted for its durability and dark burnished beauty. Glass blocks are strategically placed in walls to welcome sunlight, and in the master suite to showcase a collection of seashells. Local art is displayed on the walls and throughout the house.
The house was designed for maximum versatility. The ground-level oceanfront two bedroom unit has a large living room opening onto the pool deck and ocean beyond through sliding glass doors. A fully equipped kitchen and dining room are adjacent. The beautiful staircase leads up to the second floor Master Suite, which can be rented separately by locking the door at the top of the staircase and entering through a private exterior entry, or used as the master bedroom of a three bedroom house. The Master Suite has a King bed, a Jacuzzi tub with panoramic ocean view, a kitchenette area, with sink, fridge and coffee maker.
The additional separate Luxury Studio, with full kitchen, full bathroom with shower, queen bed, and couch can be a private and complete fourth bedroom, or can be rented separately. The entire villa is attractively and comfortably furnished to make your stay even more enjoyable.
El Castillo Maya sits side-by-side with Casa Azul del Caribe, another new house with four bedrooms. Owned separately, they share a lovely patio and swimming pool with swim up bar. They can be combined to sleep 16-20 people, making this a perfect place to host a family reunion or a wedding. The entire complex is nicely landscaped and has plenty of off-street parking for golf-carts and other vehicles. What a great place to enjoy your island vacation!
