Description from manager

Custom- designed by the owner to combine the best features of island living with the comfort and luxury to which you are accustomed, El Castillo Maya has a palapa on the rooftop for your relaxation and enjoyment. The large terrace, shaded partially by a palapa, features a colorful bar with a blue glass-block base topped with turquoise blue glass crystal. There is also a "pequeno piscina"....a personal-sized pool for cooling off..and loungers to catch the rays and enjoy the gorgeous view. All this and even a half bath for your convenience! What an incredible place to meet with family and friends to enjoy refreshments and conversation at your own home!

The care taken to give this house special touches is evident. Island-themed tile and stone handiwork is seen throughout on the floors of the palapa and in and around the house. Carved rails adorning the exterior staircases and the interior stairs and carved handrails are fashioned of salam, a hardwood noted for its durability and dark burnished beauty. Glass blocks are strategically placed in walls to admit light, and in the master suite to showcase a collection of seashells. Local art is displayed on the walls and throughout the house.

The house was designed for maximum versatility. The ground-level ocean-front two bedroom unit has a large living room opening onto the pool deck and ocean beyond . A fully equipped kitchen and dining room are adjacent. The beautiful staircase leads up to the second floor Master Suite, which can be rented separately by locking the door at the top of the staircase and entering through a private exterior entry, or used as the master bedroom of a three bedroom house. The Master Suite has a king bed, a jacuzzi tub with ocean view, a kitchenette area, with sink, fridge and coffeemaker, and has lock-off doors to maintain privacy.

There is also a separate luxury studio, with kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower, queen bed, and couch. For a large family or a group, this can be a private and complete fourth bedroom, or can be rented separately. There is also a new fifth bedroom, the Tortuga Suite, with private entrance on the second level.

The entire place is attractively and comfortably furnished to make your stay even more enjoyable.

El Castillo Maya sits side-by-side with El Castillo Maya 2, formerly Casa Azul del Caribe, another house with three bedrooms, plus another sleeping space off of the master bedroom for kids, or two adults if needed. They share a lovely patio and swimming pool with swim up bar. They can be combined to sleep 16-20 people, making this a perfect place to host a family reunion or a wedding. The entire complex is nicely landscaped and has plenty of off-street parking for golf-carts and other vehicles. What a great place to enjoy your island vacation!
