WE INVITE YOU VISIT VILLA LUMINOSA ~
In January 2004, we came to the Yucatan to celebrate
my husband's birthday. He wasn't my husband yet, and
the trip was a bit of a "test."
I'd been travelling to this part of Mexico since 1983 - when
Cancun had only a half a dozen hotels on the strip, Playa del Carmen
was still a fishing village, Paamul and Xpu-ha were just dirt roads
to the most pristine beaches I'd ever seen - and Tulum
was just about Mayan ruins. I loved this part of the world so much
- and returned year after year - moving farther south to avoid
the crowds and the growth. And then, because of all kinds of reasons,
I didn't go back for a number of years.
Richard had only been to Cancun…so, I thought I'd
bring him to my world and see if he would love it as much as I
did. We stayed at the south end of Tankah Bay…and he passed
the test with flying colors. We found the property for Villa Luminosa
and bought it just after we returned to the United States.
We'd hoped to build immediately, but it took longer than
we expected. They say that good things are worth waiting for…and
we truly believe that about Villa Luminosa. Finally, through April
and May 2008 we put the final touches on the house…and began
We continue to be awed that our dream has come to fruition - actually,
the reality is even better than we imagined. Villa Luminosa enjoys
a perfect spot with flowers, birds, breezes, palm trees, sunrises,
sunsets, and, most of all, the extraordinary colors of the Caribbean
and Tankah Bay.
We invite you to visit Villa Luminosa - it is a renewing and
regenerating experience - a serene and idyllic spot for a vacation
with friends and family.
