La Ballena is a 4 BR, 3.5 bath villa located on the north shore in the Mar y Sol villa complex. La Ballena is one of the few villas on Cozumel's north shore that has a sand beach; you can walk for miles on this stretch.
Plus, plus, plus!!! La Ballena has a HEATED swimming pool.
Another key feature of La Ballena is the oceanfront screened porch. This poolside patio area is a seaside living and dining area with a sofa and matching chair plus a dining table and 6 chairs.
La Ballena is tastefully decorated with local art displayed throughout the house. You'll enjoy stunning views of the Caribbean that can be enjoyed from the kitchen, dining room, and one of the two living room spaces on the first level. Tucked between the two living rooms is a desk with high-speed internet access (bring your laptop) and a half bath that serves the first floor.
Also on the first level is a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and even a wine cooler! The dining room has seating for eight. There is also seating at the kitchen counter and don't forget the screened-in porch with a table and chairs for six. Just off of the kitchen and toward the front of the villa, is a wonderful outdoor kitchen with a BBQ grill, 4-burner stove, prep area, and sink. Also in this space, there is a tiled rinse tank and secure hanging space for dive and snorkel gear.
La Ballena has both mini-split and zonal air conditioning plus ceiling fans throughout. And, don't forget all of the other amenities: Feel free to make calls to the U.S. and Canada with the free business line. High-speed internet access allows web surfing with the use of your own laptop. This villa has a nice video library of VCR movies and there is also a CD/tape player. The living area has a wide-screen TV.
The ocean view master bedroom has a king bed, large dressing room, and private bath at the top of the stairs. Also on this level are two other bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the third bedroom with two twins. A hallway bathroom serves both of these two bedrooms. Ascend to the top floor and you will find a fourth bedroom with twin beds and a private bathroom.
The outdoors at La Ballena offers something for everyone. The kids can play on the sandy beach just out your back door. This northern beach stretches for miles. While you're enjoying your morning coffee, enjoy the show as kiteboarders practice their skills and "catch some air". Don your snorkeling gear and head into the ocean for spectacular underwater sights. Grab a lounge chair and perfect your tropical tan in the backyard. All will enjoy the fantastic optically lit, heated, infinity edge freshwater pool, whirlpool, outdoor patio, and screened-in veranda. There is nothing better than relaxing seaside with your favorite cocktail, watching the sun dip over the horizon, and listening to the water gently lap at your own private shoreline.
Cozumel's north shore is a quiet area for your tropical island vacation.
