Sunny, lrg, waterfront, 3 or 2 bdrms! Great Views!
Bienvenidos a Casa de Luz! Brand new on the rental market, our lovely LARGE ground floor 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo is pool and water front. Our condo CAN BE RENTED AS 2 BEDROOM unit for $195 per night..
The beautiful morning light allows you to awaken with a cup of coffee or practice yoga in our living room or patio while watching the boats cruise by from the marina. Enjoy the sunset from our patio or drift off in the hammock while looking down the canal at the sailboats. Watch the schools of fish from the dock.
After several years of looking for the right property to purchase in the Riviera Maya, we chose this condo due it's large size, location, it's light-filled rooms and a constant breeze blowing throughout the unit. Being located in Puerto Aventuras makes it a safe upscale vacation location. Our building is made of only four condo units and is often very quiet. We have furnished our condo with lovely pieces of handmade furniture. Our three bedrooms are airy and very comfortable with new beds and high quality mattresses. The kitchen is fully equipped and looks out over the canal. The showers are large and are equipped with beautifully handmade mirrors. The two sofas in the living room can double as comfortable twin beds should you choose to sleep waterfront. The pool is 1 meter from our patio and looks out over the canal. Extra purified drinking water is delivered daily. Lush gardens and a private parking space greet you upon your arrival. Two bicycles are available for your use aroud town!
Casa de Luz can be rented along with the condo next door when available if you have a large group. The combined two units will accommodate up to 12 people -- a great idea for a small family or friends reunion!
Walk or bike easily to the marina, shopping, restaurants, the beach, the caleta (inlet) or the main entrance from our condo. The large supermarket is an 8 minute bike ride or a 20 minute easy walk. Kayak the canal to Bamboo for breakfast or an afternoon smoothie or paddle out to one of the beautiful coves for a swim. Bikes, kayaks or golf carts can easily be rented to move about in our lovely town although many people walk. Day tripping to nearby beaches, centoes and ruins is very easy via your rented car or public transportation located at the gate entrance. PLAYA DEL CARMEN is 10 minutes to the north and TULUM is 25 minutes to the south. We are located right in between XCARET and XELHA. Hidden cenotes line the highway beginning just outside the gates.
Go out for a walk or run in the early morning! This is the best time to exercise and is the time that the sun is low and our town is active with the locals coming to work on foot and bicycle. Residents are going to the fresh produce market and dogs are being walked. Our pueblo is at it's loveliest in the morning light!
On site international chefs can be arranged. Homemade delivered meals along with pre-arrival provision shopping can be provided as well. Sightseeing and adventure tours can also be arranged through our property manager.
You will find it very easy to disconnect and relax in our beautiful condo. The energy is excellent for both body and soul in Casa de Luz!...Read more

It did not take us very long at all to unwind & feel like we were on vacation.
The condo had everything we needed except a coffee maker & blankets (for the 2 cold nights while we were there), but we managed to borrow both from the other condo(s). :o)
Although it was hot (except for those 2 nights) we never did use the a/C because of the breezes, the cover for the patio doors that we pulled mostly closed in the full sun & regular dips in the pool that is just a few steps from the door. It was great to watch the tropical fish & the sunsets standing on the edge of the canal just beyond the pool.
The community was fabulous - clean, quiet & safe. Great condo neighbours & everything within walking distance - restaurants, bars, convenience/grocery/liquor stores, beach, inlet/lagoon with ruins, a fresh produce market that set up in the center twice every week, pharmacies, gift shops, etc. Easy, reasonably priced access (collectivo) to Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Tulum & Cozumel (ferry).
The condo neighbours & the people in the community (residents & employees) were also very helpful in giving information, advice & directions for places to go.
I've recommended this for older travellers, but you must be mobile if you do not have a vehicle - like I said, many things within walking distance, but a bit of a walk, which is not a problem when you are on vacation & have all the time in the world to get to where you're going.
There is a golf course right in the community, but we are not golfers so I cannot rate it.
The only negative, in my view, is the traffic noise (garbage/recycling & construction vehicles) that pass by the bedroom near the road starting, some days, too early in the morning. And I probably would have rated the comfort a little higher, but the beds were still on the floor when we were there. :o)
Thank you for your review! When you were there last year, we were just getting started with the renting process and we have made MANY updates this past year!
Since then, we have purchased for the kitchen a new coffee maker. The bedrooms have heavier comforters, although they are rarely ever needed, and we have purchased new bed frames for all of the bedrooms' new mattresses. No more sleeping on the comfy mattresses at floor level! Among many other new additions is a beautiful hand made Mexican dining table which seats 6-8 comfortably.
The garbage pick up schedule has been changed to the afternoon from the early morning and the construction on the new phase has slowed considerably which has greatly reduced noise from construction vehicles passing by.
We hope you will return to our home again in the near future!
