Casa Sol y Mar is a tropical haven of relaxation located right on the beach , a few steps away from turquoise waters and magnificent sunsets . The three level villa is nestled among coconut palms and is only a few steps from the ocean .
There are only a small handful of beachfront homes available for rent on Holbox island , and Casa Sol y Mar is one of them . Built in 2000 in the typical fashion of local island homes and using local materials , the house was designed by an award winning film director in search of a remote hideaway, and was just recently remodeled into a unique three level beach villa .
Sol y Mar is conceived to allow outside living as comfortable as indoors , with its elevated veranda along the entire length of the house . This artist's beach house is set directly on the beach , yet within easy walking distance to the town's attractions and restaurants . The home is open and spacious, with wide open views of the turquoise sea and swaying coconut trees .
A large high palapa roof provides ventilation and maintains the house fresh even in the hottest summer days. Large open volumes throughout the villa allow the ocean breezes to flow freely . The first level includes a guest bedroom with direct access to the beach terrasse, and is surrounded with windows which provide constant airflow , with an ensuite spacious bathroom with mexican saltillo talavera tiles. A fully equipped open kitchen opens on to the terrasse and living areas. A custom designed spiral staircase leads to a second level master suite with ensuite bathroom and an ocean front terrasse surrounded by giant coconut palms .
Specially designed windows throughout the house welcome breezes from every angle . A rooftop terrasse with shaded palapa is an ideal setting for late afternoon cocktails . A stone barbeque in the garden stands ready for grilling aficionados .
The view from the veranda and terrasses is priceless at anytime of the day , and ideal to observe the island's magnificent sunsets .
