Vacation Rental Property

Casa Estrella de Bacalar designed by renowned architect, Ricardo Romay, a dream realized. Overlooking a small, private cove on the shore of Laguna Bacalar, this gem of a house has all of the artistic features that define each space, designed to provide maximum appreciation of the magical laguna, with privacy, tranquility and comfort.

From the long driveway through hardwood trees and coconut palms, to the entryway into the charming, spacious courtyard with its lovely landscaping and the fish pond at the entry door, there is an immediate appreciation of what has been created.

Once inside, there is a stunning view of the magnificent blue-green waters of Laguna Bacalar which can be seen from the entry, the dining area, the master bedroom and the living room, all of which face onto the water.

The central part of the house has a kitchen with beautiful hand-made louver cabinets, a wood and bamboo bar, and dining area which also opens to the terrace overlooking the laguna. All the magnificent woodwork in the house is made of native hardwoods, mahogany, cedar and others.

Large, comfortable hammocks are strung on the terrace in front of the master bedroom and living room, with the space in the middle for outdoor dining.

The spacious master bedroom suite features an amazing mosaic diptych by noted Mexican sculptor, Gilberto Silva, occupying the main wall, and an open area for reading, writing or painting. One need not be in a hurry to get out of bed in the morning for a view of the laguna which is just outside, past sliding glass doors leading to the terrace which fronts the house.

The ample and artistic bathroom has been carefully designed as a really special space, which features a hand-made round tub with mosaic floor and over-head shower, surrounded by a lush indoor garden. A large vanity and floating sink are adjacent to the garden and the whole room is filled with art-work, candles, and flowers. Overhead skylight and high windows bathe the room in light, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside.

The other wing features a small, intimate beamed ceiling living room with built-in sofas adorned with piles of colorful Guatemalan fabric throw pillows. A TV and DVD player is provided for movie watching when desired. The room opens, by sliding glass doors, on to the large terrace running the entire width of the house, facing the laguna. Separating the living room from the studio guest room and bathroom is a half-wall with louvres that can be closed for privacy during the night or left open for the view during the day.

Part-time resident of Laguna Bacalar since 1985, my love affair with this area still continues. As a travel writer, I have had much experience with adjacent destinations, such as the Mayan Riviera and the nearby country of Belize, as well as travel in Latin America. As author of Fifty and Beyond; New Beginnings in Health and Well-Being as well as Our Interwoven Lives with the Zapotec Weavers; An Odyssey of the Heart (with my partner, John Lamkin), I've found valuable writing time here in my home away from home. For forty years I've spent lots of time in Oaxaca and in the nearby weaving village where I've been working directly with the many weavers I represent in my gallery in Taos, New Mexico, Starr Interiors. Time here at Casa Estrella has enabled me to indulge in my passions, reading, writing, painting and gardening. Hopefully, we can share with you some of the beauty and serenity we have found in our home here on the edge of one of the most beautiful and special bodies of water anywhere. Its proximity to some of the most magnificent of the ancient Mayan ruins still connects us to these ancient people.
