vacation rental description

Amid the warm Mexican Caribbean climate, spectacular natural beauty and stunning
Mayan culture, Casa Whitley inspires relaxation, tranquility and a true retreat from
everyday life. Located on the Riviera Maya, in the exclusive gated resort community of
Playacar (40 minutes south of the Cancun airport), Casa Whitley is an exquisite
hideaway for only the most discriminating guests. The sun-drenched ambiance is
reflected through the simple yet elegant architecture of the Spanish Colonial design by architect Angel Eslea. Interiors were designed by the owner, renowned Connecticut interior decorator, Carol Whitley.
Double height ceilings, rough-sewn wood beams, skylights and custom Talavera tiles add
to the home's unique style. A Mayan waterfall spills into the sparkling swimming pools
reflecting a lush landscape of tropical plants and palms. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen awaits the amateur chef. The large living room has a 18-foot wrap around sofa, 2 large rattan arm chairs and antique coffee table. The center piece of the dining room is a massive 9-foot mahogany table and rattan arm chairs to encourage hours of dining
pleasure. All the main rooms spill out onto the terra cotta tiled terrace and the pools
beyond. The Casa is perfectly situated on the 4th hole of the beautiful and
challenging Robert Von Hagge Golf Course. The Spa at Playacar Golf Club, within easy
walking distance, offers luxurious and relaxing treatments.
Four bedrooms and a master suite sleep a total of 12 guests. Four and a half bathrooms,
some with double sinks, a sky-lit tub and showers, are each enhanced with hand-made
blue and white tiles. Each upstairs bedroom has its own terrace. The Casa is fully air
conditioned with individual room controls.
Only a short walk away (less than a mile) is the beach, ferry boat to Cozumel and Playa's famed "La Quinta" (5th Ave). The pedestrian street is lined with many shops and
international cafes. La Quinta comes alive at night with strolling musicians and lively
international conversations. But the best of Playa is the miles of silky white beaches kissed by the sparkling turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.
The friendly atmosphere of Casa Whitley, its romantic nights, myriad of daytime
activities and its location in the heart of the Mexican Riviera Maya, make it the perfect
place to spend your vacation.
Be sure to check out our sister property 8147, Casa De Velas-House of Sails. It is located a few miles away. It sleeps 6, enabling us to accommodate up to 18 in both villas.

A perfect location for a destination wedding, family reunion or just a large group of friends!

activities and attractions in Playa del Carmen Yucatan

The Crocodile Farm: This attraction is a 25 minute drive north of Playa. A lot of fun for
families. Animals to hold and good picture opportunities. A fun cloudy morning adventure!
Xcaret: This nature park is fun for the entire family. The admission fee is approximately
$45 for an adult. There is a swim-with-the-dolphin program (call early for a reservation).
A very worthwhile experience! There are animals to see, underground rivers to snorkel,
beaches to relax on, sea turtles, and other marine life to explore. The Mayan show at night is great. Many upscale restaurants. Plan on spending a full day and evening at Xcaret. Only
5 minutes south of Playacar.
Xel-ha: Xel-ha is very similar to Xcaret but more natural. Perhaps more fun for adults. For
an entrance fee of $45, it is ALL INCLUSIVE. This includes a locker, snorkel equipment and ALL food and drink!! A terrific deal. This attraction can be included with a tour of Tulum, which can be arranged through any travel agency in town. Transportation included.
Puerto Aventuras: Another resort community with a marina, only 15 minutes south of
Playacar. A nice place to have a drink and watch the dolphins. There is a dive shop there, Mike Madden Dive Aventuras, which is suppose to be the best in the area.
They provide transportation from Playacar hotel zone.
Aviary Xaman-Ha: Located right in Playacar, a short walk from the Casa. This bird
sanctuary is 1.8 hectares of jungle that is home to over 200 birds from 60 species. A lovely area. Be sure to bring your camera and insect repellent! A modest entrance fee.
Explore Mayan ruins right on the grounds of Playacar or venture out and discover the
archeological sites of Chicken Itza, Tulum, Coba, Xel-Ha, and X-Caret

Casa Whitley

Review submitted: September 6, 2013   Date of arrival: January 31, 2013

There is really no way to adequately sum up our feelings about Casa Whitley in a few words. Awesome, wonderful, beautiful, spectacular...none can come close to doing it justice. My greatest happiness was in seeing how wonderful the experience was for my children and grandchildren and how happy it made all of them.
Of course, the natural beauty of the Riviera Maya gives one a head start but there are many places we could go that boast natural beauty. The beauty of Casa Whitley comes in taking advantage not only of a pristine and immaculate home but in luxuriating and basking in the care of a staff that in every respect is dedicated to caring for you and maximizing your enjoyment of every opportunity. Maria was superb. She was patient despite a million silly questions and requests, her knowledge of the area is encyclopedic, she was always available without in any way being obtrusive, and flawlessly arranged every request for every possible adventure and activity that tickled our treatments, parks, cenotes, snorkeling, historic sites, restaurants, shopping, advice, and guidance.
I also can't say enough about our wonderful chef, Blanca. We depended on her for many meals and she never disappointed. Her skill in the kitchen is unequalled, the food is always delicious and the variety endless. Blanca was completely reliable, friendly, accommodating, and wonderful to talk with. Having a chef available at the close of many days filled with outside activities is a convenience but having Blanca with us on those days was far more than a was an absolute treat.
And our driver...Arturo is another wonderful member of the Casa Whitley team. His driving skills are without question but he's also an excellent guide and conversationalist. He was always available and patiently waited without a hint of complaint if we decided to extend an hour or so at a "favorite" spot.
We knew we were in a very special, unique, and beautiful place but your wonderful staff and their ability to function together as a seamless unit made us always feel like we belonged and like we were home.

My sincere thanks and warm regards,
