Villa - Beach Front
Start of dialog content
Welcome to Ríaluz, my intimate luxury hideaway beside the ocean with a secluded ten-mile stretch of beach. Nestled within the federally protected biosphere of Ro Lagartos, you will share the land with birds, beautiful seasonal flowers, and a breathtaking coastline. My off-grid and solar-powered luxury villa sustainably coexists with the environment and the untouched landscape. The house is comprised of two buildings, giving guests an ample sense of space and privacy. In the main structure is the living room with a fully equipped kitchen and a master suite with a king bed. The living room has two sofas that can be converted into twin beds. Outside, a bridge connects the deck of the main structure with the adjacent one, where the second bedroom suite can be set up with either a king bed or two twin beds. The beach is accessible from all rooms by sandy footpaths leading 50m to the shore. Above the main building is a lounging terrace with an outdoor stargazing bed and a bar. From everywhere in the house, there are spectacular views of the sea. Simple but with attention to detail, the space is elegantly comfortable and connected to the sea, the sky, the stars and the birds.
I am a visual artist from Buenos Aires living in Colorado. My art practice involves painting, printmaking, textiles, installation, poetry and sculpture. It has been a pleasure to open my home to travelers from around the world.
The house is many miles deep into the federally protected biosphere reserve, and far from the lights and sounds of civilization. Other than a few homes, the reserve is free of human intervention, and it teems with flora and fauna. My home's incredible intimacy with nature affords travelers an unparalleled experience of Mexico's natural beauty. Cancun is a 3.5 hour drive, and Merida is a 2.5 hour drive. The drive will take you far off the beaten path and into the beautiful countryside of the Yucatán. Detailed driving instructions are sent to all confirmed travelers. Rio Lagartos is a 40 minute drive from the house, or a 10 minute boat ride right from the beach. Other things to note • The entire villa is available for guests, except for my painting studio. • Cooking services are available • You will be asked to sign a rental agreement • My home is not child proof and is not suitable for toddlers (age 12-36 months). • The beach is virgin and not industrially cleaned.
