Encantada,"Enchantment" in Spanish, is a fabulous four bedroom, four bath, beachfront luxury villa in the exclusively residential area of Jade Beach, 60 miles south of Cancun. You will love the seclusion of this idyllic setting: no close neighboring homes, yet only a short walk down the beach to the restaurants, dive facilities, shops, health club, and art galleries of charming Akumal.
Arranged on three levels amid a lush tropical landscape, the villa sits directly on its own palm fringed Caribbean beach. This architect designed home, owned by a renowned painter and sculptor, is a sculpture in itself, expressing the dynamic interplay between curved and planar forms. The focus of the villa is a four level circular tower, penetrated through its center by a shaft of light. The artistic attention to detail expressed throughout this villa is truly unique.
Upon arrival, stroll through a garden paradise of orchids, palm trees and tropical foliage and flowers. Open a romantic, hand-forged, iron entrance gate and enter a dramatic space of gleaming marble floors which flow throughout the house. A circular dining room steps down into an elegant sunken living room with 11 foot ceilings. Floor to ceiling glass doors look out to palms, flowers and the turquoise sea beyond. Furnishings are of exquisite hand carved woods from Indonesia, China, Mexico & Africa and are complemented by fine fabrics.
The fully equipped kitchen opens out to a terrace. It features marble counters, custom cabinetry with handcast pewter hardware, and has both indoor and outdoor bars. The bedroom on this level has its own full bath with a curving sculptural marble shower as well as glass doors to its own terrace, all opening to the beach view and breeze. The upper level also has gleaming marble floors throughout. The luxurious master bedroom suite has a large private terrace and breathtaking views of the sea and the garden. The spacious master bath includes expansive marble counters with double sinks and a 5' round shower with glass doors opening to the ocean view and breeze. The second bedroom on this level also opens to its own terrace through glass doors and offers a spectacular ocean view. Its adjoining private marble bathroom also has views from its matching 5' round shower.
A circular library connects these two bedrooms to the roof terrace above. It features a curving cantilevered marble desk and glass top table. The lower level (partially below grade) contains the fourth bedroom with full bath and a playroom. The bedroom has two twin beds which can be combined to make a king. Windows on this level do not provide a view but it is the perfect place for teenagers and children to have their own space.
This villa offers exceptional and unusual outdoor living, second to none. The pool and garden facing the turquoise Caribbean is always refreshed by delightful tropical breezes. Hammocks sway between the palm trees, resplendent with coconuts and whispering palm fronds. The sumptuous palapa-roofed lounging pavilion provides sun sheltered comfort for all with plush cushions for socializing, reading, napping or just decadent relaxation. The deep shade and constant sea breezes keep you in total comfort while relaxing by the pool. Sun worshippers can bask on comfortable lounge chairs poolside and children can frolic in the pool, just steps away. A spacious, outdoor dining terrace under a charming, naturalistic pergola, fashioned by local craftsmen, invites you into dappled shade by day and romantic lighting for evening dining.
At Encantada you will awaken daily to the caress of the rising sun over the sea and the song of tropical birds rejoicing in the new day. At the day's end, you will retire to the exquisite sunsets over the vast, endless jungle from your private, circular, rooftop palapa-covered terrace which offers a 360 degree view of the jungle as well as the peaceful moon's reflection in the sea bidding you good night and sweet dreams.
