VACATIONS ARE VACATIONS. A REST FROM OUR DAILY LIVES IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL, BUT THERE ARE VACATIONS THAT EMBED THEMSELVES IN OUR MEMORIES, SETTING THEM APART FROM THE NORM. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT CASA DEL AGUA IS TO ME.
Ten years ago, I rented this unique home with a handful of girls for my bachelorette party and my love affair with this place was set firmly in place.
Located in Puerto Aventuras, nestled into a neighborhood with its own beach, sits this beautifully authentic Mexican home with its huge palapa roofs. An easy flight from Houston to Cancun followed by a drive toward Playa del Carmen (but before Tulum) will have you in paradise. This is the kind of destination that you won’t want to leave for days, but if you feel the need, Playa del Carmen is within 20 minutes while Tulum is under an hour drive.
The experience is seamless here. The home is fully staffed with a list of rotating chefs familiar with various regions of Mexico and their styles of cooking. We recently made a visit and the chef was well-versed in vegan and vegetarian food, even making me a vegan birthday cake that I will not soon forget. Pool and beach service is impeccable with typical snacks of ceviche, tostadas, cut-up jicama, cucumber and mango with chili and margaritas. An attentive butler is always on hand to coordinate any excursion, celebration or dinner on the beach.
Luxuriously cushioned nooks are placed inside and out, constantly reminding you to relax, read a book, enjoy a game of cards and just be in the moment. A quick kayak will get you to an alcove within swimming distance of the house used by locals to anchor their boats and hang out on sunny weekends.
The home has had a starring role in MARC ANTHONY’S music video Cambio De Piel and JUSTIN BEIBER has booked it, as well as country crooner LUKE BRIAN. It’s hard to describe how special a stay at Casa del Agua is, but if you are looking for a place that will change you while getting you to fully relax and really enjoy the finer things in life – Casa del Agua is the place for you.
