Villa Cactus

Price on request
Costa Careyes
1000 sq.m

Magnet of luxury and haven for anonymity

A luxurious villa in Costa Careyes, a special destination popular for inconspicuous relaxation of the unpretentiously rich and famous.  This tropical paradise of verdant cliffs and never-ending stretches of untouched beaches is dubbed the “Pacific Playground” and lies north of Acapulco on the Pacific coast of Mexico.  It is here, between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta, that we find this beautiful villa, which is within a private and exclusive compound developed by an Italian gentleman in the 1960s.  Conforming to the ethos of “music of sky, earth, and sea”, his friends have been drawn here like magnets and built their own fine villas in an enclave that now contains 60 villas: each one is gated, secluded and also unobstructed by any other.  The net result is that everybody can enjoy elevated and sweeping panoramic views of the coastline and pristine, flat turquoise sea.  Like most of the other villas, this particular villa has a design concept of bedroom annexes built for privacy, with open-plan living and dining for socializing.  The roof is thatched with palapa (palm leaves) to blend into the lush tropical surroundings and the blindingly bold exterior pays homage to vibrant Mexican colours and flair.  The tasteful interior design promotes breezy living spaces, which are finished and furnished with elegant finesse.  There is a pervading laid-back and bohemian vibe to the ambience, which summons total and shoeless relaxation.  Indoor ceiling fans emphasize the tropical setting, which is fully on display in the lush and exquisitely terraced grounds.  An uncommonly long swimming pool that snakes its way around its own terrace, as well as a roof terrace where there is an enormous daybed from which you may enjoy the sunshine and startling Pacific sunsets or count the countless stars on a starry night.

The luxury villa is set within 6,000 sq. m and will readily accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 bedrooms en suite: including a delightful master, 3 spacious king-size rooms and 1 twin; all supplied with air conditioning for extra comfort.  There is also a cinema room annex, which can be used as an additional bedroom for children or occasional guests.  Most of your time may well indeed be spent outdoors, where you can relax in an astonishing near-silence punctuated only by the trills of tropical birds: whether armed with a book or a drink, whether in the grounds or on the roof terrace, whether it is in the brilliant sunshine or under a star-filled sky.  Gatherings, meals and parties will be a treat here!  When you wish to venture further afield, Playa Rosa has crystalline water for swimming and even a tiny beach restaurant, which once used to be the founder’s own private residence.  If you need more adventure there is the chance of horseback riding on sprawling beaches or even some sport fishing, which includes Marlin.

Like the purest tequila, this luxury villa imparts warm and satisfying appreciation and is an ideal destination for families or holidaymakers requiring plenty of anonymity and peace.  There are many steps within the terraced grounds, which may not suit families with very small children or less mobile members.  If you need twice the quality and privacy, it may be possible to book this villa with a bordering property.
