Your experience at Casa Carolina's (5,000sq. ft.) will be a one of a kind. Secluded on the Mexican Riviera......Imagine: Beach front with great sandy beach and great surf, infinity pool with jump off water fall 9 ft. deep, gourmet kitchen, Yoga Deck (four levels up),42 inch flatscreen HD TV. You are truly alone with no other villa in sight yet only a 10 minute drive to Troncones should you want to dine or shop for groceries. There is a beautiful sandy beach out front defined by two rocky points on either side. The beach is great for surfing, swimming. The points are great for fishing and lobster catching. Surfing on this beach will be one of the highlights of your trip, even for those who don't surf because they can view at close range in the infinity pool, sipping a special drink at the bar or on the yoga deck.
Casa Carolina is totally off the grid and relies on solar power and 2 back up generators. We have internet although we are miles away from anybody.
Casa Carolina has one and sometimes 2 donkeys. They are very friendly and love people.
When you first arrive and enter through the large gate of the villa you will see the ocean through the bottom floor. This level is surrounded by garden complete with fruit trees. It has a beach view bar, 2 hammocks, pingpong table, surf racks and a full bathroom complete with 2 sinks and inside/outside shower.(there is also a half bath on the first levdel)
You will walk up the steps to the second level which is all wood flooring. This level has the infinity pool, large palapa, built in concrete couch with comfy cushions, a dining table (seats 12), and a gourmet kitchen with counter and stools,walk in pantry and top of the line restaurant stove and oven.
As you proceed to the 3rd level you enter into a lanai which takes you to the first bedroom with a queen and bunks (sleeps 4) You can walk through this room to the back lanai where you enter the bathroom. You can also enter the next bedroom also with a queen and bunks or you can continue on to the great room, (2 Queens & 2 top beds) We call this the great room because it is about 1,000 sq ft.. Great room to work on the internet as there is a very large desk and open shelving for your work. (2 to 3 person desk) There are Bali-type beds set up with bolsters and cushions for maximum comfort while relaxing, reading, watching TV listening to music, playing board games, yoga or just zoning out on the sunset over the ocean or the sunrise over the Sierra Madras.
There is a lanai on both sides of the 3rd level. All the rooms have french doors to help maintain the beautiful views and curtains for you privacy. Past the great room is the master bedroom still connected to the large front lanai but also with a private porch with rocking chair. This room has a king bed, with built in reading lights, a desk,chair and windows which look over the tree tops. Also, it attaches to a 2 sink bathroom with lots of shelf space and large shower.
All showers are inlaid with smooth stones creating various ocean creatures such as crabs, starfish, seahorses, etc. The water in the showers and sinks is hot & cold. sinks are all hand painted and everyone different from the next. All mattresses are of the highest quality with mattress pads and 100% Egyptian cotton sheets. For mosquito season we have netting for all beds, if desired. Unlike most places you go in Mexico you can actually flush your toilet paper down the toilet as opposed to putting it in the waste basket. This villa is new and has the best and most updated conveniences.
The fourth level is the yoga deck complete with a large very accurate compass hand laid with beach pebbles. The view from this level is magnificent. There is no railing so you have that free feeling you get when on top of a mountain looking down at the top of trees.
Walk through the 3 level garden and on the 4th level, hidden from view of everything except the ocean is a palapa with hammocks, lounge chairs and table.We have just added a double bed to this area...very popular for adventure sleepers at night or daytime loungers and readers right on the water's edge) Now you are almost on the beach...just a few more steps and you are on the sand or rock.
Casa Carolina is perfect for weddings workshops, retreats, surfing, ecotourism, swimming,jungle tours, quad riding, horseback riding, fishing, artist, writers,teachers, beach combers, nature lovers, bird watching and any one who wants real rest and relaxation.
"Casa Carolina was the most wonderful vacation ever!"
Left on 07/11/2013 for a stay in August 2012 | M.McFaddenReviewed Jul 11, 2013Stayed Aug 2012
The kids went surfing, the staff did the cooking and I got to swim, read, nap and rest the whole time. The views at sunrise and sunset, the delicious meals, the cleanliness, and the world's most loveable dog made this a delightful retreat from the world. Okay, I did go shopping in Zihuatanejo, but only once. I felt ten years younger after this heavenly week in paradise. The pool is magnificent. Everything was just wonderful. I'm so thankful that this place exists. I'll be back for sure!
