Playa del Carmen, Yucatan Peninsula
This is a beautiful hand-crafted, all-hardwood house on the beach, situated on a 100-acre preserve on the Riviera Maya, just south of Cancun. It accommodates up to 4 couples or a few families in four luxurious master suites, each with unobstructed ocean and forest views on either side.

A very special compound suitable for a couple, several friends or a family retreat. Beautiful sunrise and wide vistas with perfect morning seas for a kayak and afternoon sailing. Staff is attentive and efficient. Great chef too.
