Villas Sacbe Unit 8 - Luxury Steps From 5th Ave
Special "Bad Economy" Discount - Take 25% off the regular rates published in this ad until further notice.
Villas Sacbe is a small complex of twelve luxury condominiums in the heart of the golden zone of Playa del Carmen - steps away from the most vibrant portion of famed 5th Avenue and about 100 meters from the beach. Dozens of high quality restaurants and shops are literally steps away from your door. The main entrance on quaint 1st Avenue affords you easy access to the beach on one side and to shopping and dining on the other.
Unit 8 is a three-story penthouse unit with loads of luxury features - gleaming Tikul stone on all the floors; a custom and oversized marble jacuzzi bath in the master bathroom; marble tile from floor to ceiling in all three bathrooms; and custom commercial-for-the-home kitchen appliances from KitchenAid and Viking. The architecture of the unit is very unique and charming, with a sturdy grass thatch "palapa" roof over the living room/loft area, a striking circular shaped living room and master bedroom, and three large terraces spread out over three floors.
The large circular shaped master bedroom on the lower floor has a king sized bed and French double doors leading to a large private terrace overlooking the pool and courtyard. The Master bedroom's private bathroom features a custom jacuzzi bath with sliding Japanese Shinjo doors that open to the terrace if desired.
The 2nd bedroom on the lower floor has a queen sized bed & private bathroom. The 3rd bedroom on the upper floor has a queen sized bed with an adjoining bathroom that can also be accessed from the main hallway. The loft, also equipped with a full sized futon, can be used as a sleeping area if desired, though it is quite small, with just enough room to unfold the futon. Finally, the futon in the living room can be used to sleep two as well if desired. The two lower-floor bedrooms have their own 21" TVs and DVD/VCRs.
The circular living room features a dramatic tee-pee shaped palapa ceiling 1.5 stories above and a cozy loft extending about a third of the way out over the living room area. The kids will likely enjoy the fun built-in wooden ladder that reaches from the living room to the loft. The adults may prefer the more conventional route, using the door from the rooftop terrace to access the loft. The living room, like the master bedroom, also features double French doors that access yet another large terrace overlooking the central courtyard and swimming pool. The terrace, with protection from the overhanging grass palapa roof, is the intended location for dining around a table. The two square teak patio tables can be arranged separately or together to accommodate a variety of dining configurations. During inclement weather, the tables can be easily moved into the living room for indoor dining. The living room is equipped with a 29" TV, Dvd/vcr, and stereo.
The kitchen is very nicely appointed, though petite. All appliances are high-end stainless steel models specially imported from the United States. The large capacity, counter-depth refrigerator from KitchenAid uses a special device to pump purified water from a standard 5-gallon bottle to the icemaker and water-dispenser in the door. The full sized dishwasher from KitchenAid means that clean up after a meal at home is a snap. The KitchenAid oven, Viking cooktop, and KitchenAid Microwave give you all the flexibility you need in the cooking department. This type and quality of appliance suite is virtually unheard of in Playa del Carmen. The kitchen accoutrements are rounded out with a custom marble countertop, ceramic tile backsplash, and hand-shaped peninsula that doubles as food prep area and cozy table for 2 or 4.
High speed internet is provided with hard wired data outlets found throughout the unit in all rooms and terraces - just plug your laptop into your private network wherever you feel like working or use the provided PC. There are also several wireless access points around the unit providing wifi access to the network. Answering a few emails out on the terrace with a Mai-Tai in hand doesn't sound so bad, does it? Since telecommunications services in Playa del Carmen are sometimes sporadic, we cannot guarantee they will be available 100% of the time. We are providing them on a "best effort" basis as a free bonus when available.
