Villa Valhalla is a perfect choice for large families who like to vacation together. This 6,900 sq. ft. villa has plenty of space inside and out, enough for large group gatherings, dining, pool sessions, tanning, even stargazing on the rooftop observation deck.
Rooms with a view aptly describe this magnificent villa which overlooks the Caribbean from the south rim of Half Moon Bay in North Akumal. The owners have thought of virtually everything to facilitate family and group vacations; first by putting all the bedrooms on the ocean side of the house with nearly equal interior space. Now there won't be any arguments over who gets the best room. And each bedroom has either a lower level pool/ocean patio or a second level ocean view terrace, plus a sitting area, and a private bathroom. Very nice. Four bedrooms are on the upper level and two on the lower level. One of the bedrooms on the lower level is specially designed for the needs of the physically challenged with wider doors and a wider shower area, but this has been done so as not to inconvenience those who are not physically challenged should they use this bedroom.
The main living areas are spaciously elegant furnished in a tropical modern style. The main interior living space includes the living room, dining room and kitchen, and it opens to the pool deck which has another dining area and living area. The glass sliders are intentionally wide so they can be rolled back to unite the inside and outside, allowing the guests to take full advantage of good weather. As you can see by the photos below there is plenty of seating for everyone both inside and outside the villa. Two large dining tables can be united either inside or outside for full group dining. The kitchen is fully equipped and thoughtfully laid-out for preparing large meals. Also, there is a laundry facility to the side of the kitchen just behind some doors.
The pool area is where you will spend much of your time, enjoying the view and breeze, tanning in the chaise lounges, splashing in the pool, and swinging in a hammock under the shade palapa. Considering that there will most likely be a mix of adults and children, the pool has a sizeable shallow area and built-in stools at the edge of the pool shade palapa. Kids can frolic to their heart's content while the adults enjoy their favorite beverage right next to them, perched on a "swim-up" seat (please use plastic cups in the pool). The view of Half Moon Bay is spectacular from this location and sunrises are a sight to behold. You'll find that even the sunsets normally light up the sky to the east making twilight time doubly enjoyable. Farther out from the pool is a sandy sea front tanning area and 2 kayaks for cruising Half Moon Bay when seas are calm.
Upstairs is the entertainment/media room equipped with a 42 inch flat screen TV with satellite service, DVD player, CD stereo, broadband WiFi wireless Internet with whole house coverage (ethernet ports are in each bedroom incase your laptop is not wireless enabled), plus plenty of comfortable seating on couches and chairs. There is a work station with a desk top computer provided for checking your email, plus a copier, scanner and printer. If your laptop is wireless enabled you can be online anywhere in the house. For more information on the entertainment/media room see the amenities list below.
The rooftop deck is literally the crown to this tropical castle. It has a built-in padded sofa with a table, and a king size lounging bed. Both face the sea and view. The 360° panoramic view covers Half Moon Bay, the Caribbean and the jungle to the west. While the rooftop can be hot during midday, at twilight it is perfect for enjoying sunrises and sunsets. After sundown stargazing and the lights of the coastline are a perfect finish to yet another great day in Akumal.
