the house

Casa Los Charcos (loosely translated means House of Ponds) is a uniquely secluded hideaway surrounded by lush, tropical gardens. Charcos is an Eden paradise promising privacy, tranquility, serenity, white sandy beaches, wild natural beauty, and a sophisticated, luxurious lifestyle.

With its large stretch of secluded beach and lushly landscaped gardens, this exceptional residence captures the essence of the ocean and the tropics at its best while offering the highest standards in accommodations and service. It provides the ideal setting for upscale discriminating travelers, large families or groups, and large-scale entertaining.

Privacy, security, and excellence of service are guaranteed round the clock. It is a place where you can relax ocean side or pool side in a serene haven of your own while only minutes away from the exciting daytime activities and famous night life of Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue).

Watch golden sunsets from the amazing master bedroom of your Mediterranean-style villa while listening to a background of exotic jungle sounds, or amble barefoot along the beautiful Caribbean and the expansive white-sand beaches.

Tap into the wonderful feeling of freedom from just sunbathing, sleeping, and swimming under a perfect and idyllic sky.


Charcos has an amazing view of the Caribbean and the island of Cozumel from one of the more than 1,000 square feet of terraces. The lot is approximately 8,000 square feet, and because of its shape and intense vegetation, it is virtually impossible to see the house and pool area from the street. Casa Los Charcos is the most private villa in all of Playacar.

The house itself is a modern, magical marvel; the perfect tropical retreat, it offers a stunning location for guests to relax and experience the peace and tranquility of the Mexican Riviera.

This architectural masterpiece offers room and comfort by way of 5,000 square feet of fully air-conditioned living space and a total of 5 spacious bedrooms, including one office/bedroom; each bedroom has its own spacious bathroom. There is a laundry room which doubles as maid's quarters, with a full bathroom and its own entrance.

The three-story home is richly decorated and includes a gorgeous dining/living room area with settings for eight, walk-in closets, and an impressive wood and steel aerial staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms.

The 625-square-foot pool is heated and reaches seven feet at its deepest. It has a diving board and 6-seat Jacuzzi-style seating area with water massage. The pool also contains a 5.5 horsepower Swim-Jet system that produces a current so that you can "do laps" while swimming in place. The house has central air-conditioning and Direct TV satellite service in all the bedrooms.

The windows are double-paned glass and are hurricane and sound proof. The central sound system is by Sonos. There is also Wi-Fi broadband Internet access and an iMac computer. There is a main telephone with extensions in each room and a Vonage phone line and FAX in the office/bedroom.

The garage contains several bicycles, beach chairs, and pool accessories.

The spectacular master suite has ocean views that are breathtaking. The dual showers have ocean views, as do the three terraces that surround the suite. There is an infinity-style heated Jacuzzi, also with ocean views, for up to ten people. You can awaken to spectacular sunrises while still in bed! There is an outdoor sitting area where you can relax and take in the beautiful scenery or sunbathe on the rooftop sunning area. If you feel like entertaining guests, it is a perfect lounge/BBQ area.
