Casa Aurora

Your own private entrance to Ya-Kul Lagoon with amazing ocean views!

Come enjoy this unique thatched roof home with white stuccoed walls and patios and terraces made of coral. A separate one bedroom guest house is included. With approximately 3,500 square feet of living space, you will have plenty of room and privacy. Located only steps from the ocean, you can snorkel from your door in one of the best snorkeling locales in the area!

When you arrive at Casa Aurora, you will pass by the swimming pool surrounded by a tropical garden of palm and almendra trees, pink and red hibiscus, and climbing vines, and protected from windy days. Teak lounge chairs and tables surround the pool for your comfort.

Heading toward the main house, you pass through an archway leading you to grand views of the Caribbean sea and Ya-Kul Lagoon. From this terrace you can choose to relax in the sun or shade with lounge chairs or follow the coral-paved path that leads down to the lagoon where you will enjoy amazing snorkeling with salt water fish species.

On the upper level of the main house is the open floor plan living room, dining area, and kitchen. The L-shaped sofa is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the fabulous views of the sea. A CD stereo is provided for your favorite musical backdrop.. The round dining table seats five and is perfect for dining and games. The kitchen is fully-equipped with everything you need for cooking.

The upper level balcony is a coveted spot for enjoying the ocean views. Sip coffee there in the morning for sunrise or enjoy a cool drink for sunset to watch the sailboats on the ocean.

Adjacent to the living area on the upper level but with a private entrance is the third bedroom. This bedroom has a king-size bed, shelving, and a large bathroom with double sinks, a soaking tub, and walk in closet. Just outside on the large upper level terrace is a table and chairs for sipping coffee and enjoying the incredible sunrises or relaxing in the evening to enjoy a cool drink and the gorgeous ocean.

Downstairs on the lower level are two additional bedrooms. One with a king size bed and private bathroom and the other with two twin beds and a private bathroom. Both rooms have great ocean views, private entrances, and comfortable furnishings.

Behind the main house in the garden by the pool is a very private casita offering a fourth bedroom and bathroom, as well as a sitting room and kitchen. The bedroom has a king size bed with a private porch surrounded by garden. A small cenote (freshwater) is located next to the porch. The sitting room has plenty of seating and the bar kitchen has a coffee maker and small refrigerator. A second patio is just outside the sitting room and faces the pool.
