Villa Ka Kuxta
This impressive 5000 sq. ft. Mexico Riviera Maya beachfront villa is located in the gated community of South Akumal amongst 19 other gorgeously private villas. Villa Ka Kuxta (pronounced ca koosh ta) will, as the Mayan meaning implies, bring rebirth to all those fortunate enough to visit this special home. This rebirth begins with a serenity that envelops you the moment you enter the tranquil garden on your approach to the entrance to the home.
Designed and built by architect Guillermo Brueggerhoff, this fully air conditioned home blends classic Colonial Spanish design with modern Caribbean beach house living. These elements, combined with tasteful furnishings and decor, provide the ingredients for a most memorable vacation experience.
Entering the lush garden entranceway from the quiet street, you will find the cozy self contained ‘casita’ apartment above the garage. A courtyard, with sitting area and fountain, highlights the garden while providing a relaxing space for reflection should you wish for some private time away from the group.
The villa lay out is set up perfectly for two families who wish to have a great deal of privacy, with a kitchen, dining and lounge area on each level. However, if you all want to be together, don’t let this floor plan scare you off, since these two areas actually compliment each other very nicely and the flow works well between them.
The ground floor entrance has a wonderful foyer with interior staircase leading up to the second floor and continuing on to the roof top where you will find a wet bar, chaise lounges and of course a fabulous view. Finishing details such as the rich wood finishes, stained glass panels, local art, and a red brick bobeda capped ceiling, all make the passage up and down the stairway an enjoyable journey.
The ground floor kitchen, dining and living areas are more casual and, therefore, work ideally for convenient pool and beach living during the day. The full size ground floor kitchen makes a perfect bar and place to prepare lunch time snacks with convenient access to the pool and beach.
A large screen TV with DVD library and entertainment center are on one side of the oceanfront room. On the other side is a comfortable wrap around couch and chair grouping that invites conversation or just relaxation as you enjoy the pool and ocean view. Sliding glass doors provide access to a covered terrace with a small dining table, gas grill and lounge chairs. The freshwater pool is just steps from the beach.
On the ground floor you will find two large bedrooms. The Master Suite can be found beachside and has a King bed, en-suite bathroom with tub/shower combination and a walk out to the pool area. The second ground floor bedroom has Twin beds which can be made up as a King. This bedroom has a small terrace with a pleasing garden view. A full bathroom with shower is conveniently located just outside the door.
Heading upstairs to the second level you will discover a similar floor plan to the ground floor with some useful changes. The kitchen is larger than the one on the ground and open to the front of the house. Anyone who enjoys spending time in the kitchen will quickly make themselves at home here. Granite counter tops, beautiful rich hardwood cabinets ,and stained glass windows all make this an inviting space to work or socialize.
A large dining table with seating for eight will be the focal point of many memorable hours together with family and/or friends at this wonderful villa. If you would like to experience a real Mexican meal while you are here, we can arrange to have a Mexican cook come in and prepare a traditional meal for you just for one evening, or for an entire week if you really want to live decadently.
Casually elegant Rattan furniture, colorful local art, and the entire ocean frontage done in glass windows and sliders, brighten this inviting large open space. A large covered terrace across the entire frontage offers breathtaking views and shady areas to dine, lounge, or sit and visit.
The terrace connects with the second floor oceanfront Master Suite. It too is large, has a King bed and en-suite bathroom. A large fourth bedroom with a Queen bed is on this level and has a nice view of the garden and the casita. A full bathroom with walk in shower is well placed just outside the door.
Heading up to the roof top, you will find a table, chairs, chaise lounges and the most amazing views of that inviting Caribbean waters. This is the place for sundowners after a long hard day of doing nothing.
The 5th bedroom suite is actually a very cute, self contained casita, or ‘guest house’ that is located in the garden of the property above the garage. The casita is set up like a studio apartment with a bedroom area which has a Double bed. There is a also a sitting area with a sofa that can be made into a Double bed. Rounding out the area is a desk, Kitchenette and bathroom with shower.
South Akumal bay, where this beautiful villa is located, is considered a prime Akumal location. There are a total of 20 private oceanfront homes in this gated community. An offshore reef provides a break for waves, creating a gorgeous calm bay that is ideal for snorkelling, kayaking, and swimming. The shoreline is mostly sandy with a few rocky outcrops in places, but never creating a problem finding somewhere to wade into the water. It is ideal for kids and good for beachcombing. Please note that this region of the Riviera Maya may be affected by shifting seasonal currents and weather patterns causing an influx of seaweed on the beach.
