Casa Del Mar Bonito - Stately Villa of Unparalleled Beauty on White Sandy Beach
Description from the manager
Casa Del Mar Bonito offers Zen-like resplendence right on the white sands of the Mexican Caribbean. You will be located in Playa Secreto, or “Secret Beach,” a gated community situated on perhaps the most beautiful glistening ocean front in the Mayan Riviera. The sands stretch for about a mile with about fifteen private villas lining the beach. Come discover this hidden tropical getaway!
The forty-five foot pool is surrounded by fountains, gardens, lounge areas, tables and a marvelous “in-pool” lounge. The pool is located in an unobservable courtyard to provide maximum privacy. The living room contains a sixty-two inch TV and an entertainment center with DVD player, iPod dock, surround sound theater system and satellite TV. You will also find a beautiful bar adjacent to a six chair game table. The room is open, airy and offers a spectacular view of the ocean and the pool. Your reservation includes daily housekeeping, property managers and complimentary pre-stocking.
The exclusive custom made interiors and design of Casa Del Mar Bonito blend an eclectic variety of features including marble sculptures and fountains from Beijing, mosaic marble floors from Bali, hand carved mahogany doors from Indonesia and a conservatory brick domed ceiling completed by Mexican artisans. The pool tile was produced in Japan, and the glass shower doors hand etched in Java. The chef’s kitchen features state of the art appliances and granite counter tops. A ruby red, crystal chandelier from India adds to the romantic atmosphere around the beautiful mosaic marble top dining table.
Four magnificent and stately bedrooms with sturdy and decorative wooden frames accommodate up to eight guests at Casa Del Mar Bonito. All of the bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms and a rich variety of perks. The master suite takes up the entire second floor and is accessed via a marble stairway that leads to a balcony overlooking the conservatory floor.
Playa Secreto is a gated sanctuary where you will find a beautiful residential community where villa owners are committed to preserving the area as an immaculate luxury destination. Nearby activities include deep sea fishing, cave diving, Mayan ruins, jungle and canopy tours and horseback riding. Casa Del Mar Bonito is a unique oasis that offers privacy and seclusion in a postcard perfect tropical ocean setting!

"Great Beach but can't say the same for the house."

Loved the beach. House design, although large, had much wasted and unusable space. Pool is pretty but no ventilation and many mosquitos. Internet didn't work. Cook was not easy to deal with. Although, dinner was promised on the first night, the cook informed us she didn't work on that night and left. Food was OK, but it always a struggle to get what we wanted.

The home and house staff was absolutely fantastic! Proximity to nearby towns and sites was perfect. Craftmanship of the home was spectacular. Beachfront was awesome. Courtyard pool was incredible. Luxury Retreat Concierge was ZERO help to us. Left messages and emails that went unreturned by concierge. Driving directions given to us by concierge were incorrect. Arrival dinner menu provided to concierge was never given to cook. - Bret B., ,
"This was the most beautiful home with the most amazing staff."

This home takes your breath away from the moment you step through the gates. Everything was top of the line. The staff headed up by Betty took care of our every need, even washed our clothes daily. She had a menu from which we could choose breakfast and lunch and she would not only have it prepared for us, serve us but go to the store and purchase the items. Of course we paid for all groceries. This was one of the best top notch villa vacations we have taken and we have taken many around the world. We will definitely be going back and visiting Betty and the beautiful villa. - Tammie D., Texas, USA

A fantastic holiday overall. Very high quality villa, great location, helpful villa staff, safe and secure, easy booking process. The only small criticism was not having a villa manager in the end (see below), though this was not a big issue. - Nick B., , Australia

Our trip was fabulous. Everyone loved the location and the villa and there is nothing we would have done differently. I\'m glad we got the rental car. Marilu was very helpful when we arrived at Thrifty rental and they told us they don\'t have the car we reserved. I called her right away and I don\'t know what she did but we got our Suburban the following morning. :) That car worked so much better for us that I would\'ve been really upset if we had to keep the van. \n\nWe ended up driving to Cancun and Playa del Carmen couple of times. We found Costco and all the nearby stores. The owners of the house had a binder on the coffee table with all the neat suggestions about the house and the area. We followed couple of their restaurant suggestions and loved them. \n\nThere was definitely that initial wow factor when we arrived at the villa. It\'s gorgeous! They\'ve done such a good job building that house. All the rooms of the house are designed so well! The staff in the house were very helpful. T
