My family and I were beyond happy with this house. The pictures do not truly do its beauty justice! The home was impeccable and a joy to stay in. The location is truly perfect. Close to the beautiful town of Akumal and Tulum, and with plenty of great dining and recreation options. The owners of the home were truly a pleasure to work with, and the staff was very sweet and helpful. We really could not have been more happy with this home and our experience with the owners. - J. Troutman
Esprit del Mar
Mexico / Riviera Maya / Akumal
Luxury on an exclusive and secluded ocean-front point
Situated on an 18-foot-high coral dune at the northern end of Tulum, the 5,500-square-foot Villa Esprit del Mar commands breathtaking views of the sea. The main villa features five air-conditioned bedrooms (two with large balconies) and boasts 25-foot windows to frame the spectacular views. An additional four en-suite bedrooms are located in a guest villa within the tropical gardens of the walled estate.
On the first floor, you’ll find a stairway that spirals up to the roof, a large living room, dining room with candelit alcove wall, professional kitchen, bedroom suite, and onyx bar. Upstairs is an 1,800-square-foot master suite occupying an entire wing, featuring a king-size bed crowned with a rare, fossilized tree root from the Yucatan jungle. Also on the second floor is a 550-square-foot bedroom suite with a handmade egg-shaped tub in the marble-clad bath. A third bedroom suite offers accommodation for up to six, with four beds adorned by naturally harvested tree trunks. The third floor roof of the villa has sheltered seating areas as well as an exercise/yoga area.
Designed so you can live both indoors and outdoors, the villa’s large glass doors open up to reveal rock coral-framed patio beds for lounging. Go for a swim in the 45-foot, mosaic-tiled infinity-edge pool or soak up some sun in the eight-person, ocean-facing Jacuzzi tub. Enjoy the outdoor grill and sip cocktails at the poolside bar.
Walk down 20 steps on the pool path and your feet will meet the sea; the unique natural coral environment is replete with life. Walk on another path and you’ll find sandy beaches on either side of you.
The villa staff is there daily to take care of your needs. Our personal concierge can arrange for chef-prepared meals, professional massages, tour excursions, private yoga instruction, fishing, golf, child care and more (for just a nominal service charge).
