Jungle Views and Buddha in the Pool—This Newly Listed Mexican Villa Is a Bohemian Dream
Nestled between the jungle and the bustle of Tulum on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico, an eco-chic property has hit the market for US$6.5 million.
The roughly 10,000-square-foot villa, which is also within a secured, private guarded neighborhood and close to the region’s pristine beaches, “is one of a kind in Tulum,” said listing agent Sally Sudol of The Agency. “There are no other 10-bedroom houses at the moment. It’s perfect for large groups of friends and families who like to travel together.”
Known as Casa Don Rey, the house blends bohemian inspiration, luxury and eco features with natural materials from wood to stone and concrete.
“It was important to bring the eco-chic Tulum vibe,” Ms. Sudol said. “The home was designed to bring all the elements of Tulum’s nature and blur the boundaries of indoor and outdoor luxury living.”
Highlights of the property include jungle views, two sunken outdoor living rooms, fire pits, a theater room, a cabana lounge, a full bar and two pools—one in the central courtyard and one on the roof terrace. There’s also a “Zen den,” which has a fish-tank-like window looking into the pool, offering a view of swimmers splashing past a submerged Buddha statue.
There are also copious outdoor living areas with plenty of space for yoga or meditation; 13 bathrooms; and walls of glass to flood the home with light.
Mansion Global couldn’t identify the seller of the villa.
In recent weeks, brokerage firms Engel & Völkers and Nest Seekers announced their expansions into Tulum, as Mexico’s luxury real estate market grows increasingly popular with U.S. buyers, with new infrastructure, including an airport and high-speed trains, set to bolster demand.
