  • Eco-wonderland beach house in Sian Ka’an Biosphere

    If you support the concept of eco-tourism, staying in the eco-chic villa with a beautiful name – Casa Sophia – will definitely go at top of your list.  What makes it different from other accommodations is its location.

    Casa Sophia is a beach house that sits within the 1% of privately owned territory of Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve – UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to over 300 bird species.

    While thousands of tourists try to book one day-trips to this eco-wonderland, there are only few lucky ones, who actually spend their vacation  in one of the most exclusive and protected areas of Riviera Maya. Casa Sophia gives you this rare opportunity!

    Sustainable tourism in the heart of the Riviera Maya

    Besides being close to wildlife, bird-watching spots and 23 archeological sites (some dating back to 2,300 years ago), Casa Sophia holds a myriad of surprises. For one, the world’s second longest barrier reef is mere swimming distance away from the beach house.

    Another is Casa Sophia’s spaciousness and modern feel. This unique beach house incorporates four beautiful bedrooms (plus an apartment studio) and is large enough to accommodate up to 10 people.

    The open floor plan of Casa Sophia offers splendid views of the outdoor pool, tropical garden and the beach. While a modern, fully-equipped kitchen, adjacent to an elegant dining and living areas, makes it easy for you to cook your meals and chat with the rest of the group.

    Enjoy views of the Sian Ka’an lagoon and Caribbean Sea

    Sustainability, eco-chic and magnificent ocean views are the Hallmark of this celestial beach house. The same holds true for all the bedrooms of Casa Sophia.

    The master bedroom boasts a gorgeous coral-colored en-suite bathroom with a large soaking tub. The second bedroom suite, located on the upper floor is an ideal choice for romantic couples, as it is the only room that features both views of the lagoon and the ocean. This bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, an en-suite bathroom and has private access to the terrace.

    The third and fourth bedrooms are perfect for a family with children, as they share a full bathroom and a spacious walk-in closet. Bedroom #3 has a king-size bed, while Bedroom #4 features 2 double beds.

    A separate studio accommodation for additional guests is connected to the Casa Sophia and is furnished with a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. It will delight nature lovers, as the windows face the Sian Ka’an’s tropical jungle.

    Make the maximum out of your stay at Casa Sophia, by taking advantage of the numerous outdoor areas of this beach house. Enjoy a morning swim in the pool, take a nap in one of the hammocks, share an evening cocktail under the beach palapa, and of course, take plenty of pictures of exotic birds, colourful fish, wildlife and the lagoon!

    Eco-chic in the middle of a UNESCO property in the Riviera Maya

    It is undeniable that whether you are an advocate of eco-friendly living or you are still considering it as an option; you will love the eco-chic of Casa Sophia and natural beauty of Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
