Casa Tortuga is primely situated just a short leisurely walk from the glistening waters of the Caribbean Sea (250m from the driveway thru the jungle) and the most famous cobblestone street in Mexico. Cheerfully rising up to welcome its guests, this home is flooded with natural light thanks to the striking, architectural show stopper in the living room, a semi-circular tower with exquisite domed roof, constructed almost entirely, of elongated windows. A delightful synthesis of charming Mexican and modern design are displayed in the unique wall murals and terracotta-colored flooring combined with the sleek granite counters, custom cabinetry and new appliances in the fully-appointed kitchen.

Fantastic rattan furniture, and gas grill provide all that is required to host friends or sip on a glass of wine while taking advantage of Playa's endless summer climate al fresco any time of day rain or shine. Amenities within your heavenly retreat include a washer/dryer, flat screen Smart TV with DVD, 2 twin beds, 2 plush king beds with comfy memory foam mattresses, a solid wood dining table for 6, second fridge, beach chairs and toys, hair dryer, safe, ample terrace with loungers off the master, linens, premium organic toiletries, internet and parking and many extras including an informative binder of local information/activities.

Spread over the vast green space of the property are an expansive, newly renovated communal pool and palapa area with bar, seating areas and wifi. A private tennis court is just steps away from your front door, as is a scenic, 6 km, palm-lined trail for biking, running or walking. Located within the gated community of Playacar Phase 2, the vacation complex is near an ancient Mayan ruin site, an outdoor souvenir shopping plaza and the vibrant 5th Avenue. Spend the day frolicking in the warm, turquoise-colored ocean, then peruse the endless variety of artisan shops, pubs showcasing talented musicians from around the country, boutique stores, cafés, galleries and superb restaurants serving local and international fare in the evening. If adventure is what you desire, there are exhilarating tours available that will suit all personalities. Zip line over the jungle canopy at Xplor, learn fascinating aspects of the Mayan culture and swim in the underground river system which runs throughout the state at Xcaret.
