Get away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, relax and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones at Casa Christensen. Located in tropical gardens on a spacious double lot right on the water, the villa boasts spacious living and sleeping areas, authentic traditional tile, and beautiful breezy palapa roofs. The adobe design and bright, airy layout are thanks to the acclaimed architect of the famous Maroma Resort, and the waterfront decks and roof terraces beautifully merge the inside and outside living spaces.
Enter the villa through double doors and be greeted by a large, open plan, circular living space, with peaked 30ft ceiling and spectacular views of the turquoise waters immediately out front. There is an ample dining area, a large kitchen with breakfast bar, and a library area where you will find a great selection of Maya and coral reef literature.
On the lower floor are 3 bedrooms. There are 2 adjoining bedrooms which open out to a covered terrace, each bedroom with 2 double/full beds and private bathroom. The third bedroom on the lower floor is furnished with a queen bed and has its own private entrance and private bathroom. Follow the curved staircase leading up to the master suite, which boasts a king sized bed, and large private bathroom with twin vanity, and a study area, This suite has private terraces facing both the ocean and the jungle, to maximize enjoyment of our spectacular sunrises and sunsets. All major rooms have ocean views, and all rooms are cooled with ceiling fans.
Casa Christensen has been designed and built to take advantage of the oceanfront breezes it captures and keeps the home cool. Therefore the home is not air conditioned, but there are ceiling fans to help mother nature if needed, and we have had many return visitors for nearly 40 years without complaint. Indeed, we are told that Casa Christensen is the perfect place to unplug, reconnect, and enjoy the sun, sea, and nature. We do understand that in this modern age, Wi-Fi is important, so we provide complimentary wireless internet access for our guests.
Right in front of the villa is the natural aquarium that is Yalku Lagoon with views looking out over the Caribbean, and our guests have unlimited free access to the lagoon, with water access immediately in front of the villa. The snorkeling and swimming here is fantastic! The white sandy beach of Half Moon Bay is a very short walk from the villa, and there are plenty of restaurants, boutiques, dive centers, and conveniences within walking distance of the house. Akumal is only 1.5 miles long from end to end. Ask us about renting a golf cart or bicycles to make accessing all of the village's amenities even easier!
