Designed by the Mexican architect Hector Guevara — who became known for building several high end homes on the Pacific coast of Mexico — Casa de la Luna is full of delicious design details.

From the wooden beams embedded in the walls of the living area to the eight zapote logs protruding from the ceiling of the terrace over the pool, you'll never tire of its design style and elegance.

But perhaps the most striking feature when you enter the house are the ten stained glass windows representing the blue ocean of the island, which are cleverly placed across from sliding doors that blend the terrace and living area together.

The beautiful pool is finished in blue tiling and has 3 different depths and a comfortable ledge to sit and enjoy your favorite tropical drink. Measuring 46 feet by 15 feet (14m by 4.5m) at its widest, it is big enough to swim laps, or even take scuba lessons.

Dining outside on the terrace, you're surrounded by the mature tropical garden with fruit trees you could pick from for dessert, including bananas, coconuts, papaya, passion fruit, grapefruit and mandarins.

Back inside, three of the four bedrooms have their own bathrooms and the master bedroom has wonderful hand-made onyx lamps. One of the bedrooms is on the first floor and has its own entrance, making it independent from the rest of the house and ideal as a guest room or studio.

The spacious kitchen has an island with an additional sink and all the countertops are solid granite. And, of course, the entire is 100% air-conditioned.

Up on the thatched palapa roof you can make the most of the island's stunning sunsets, sipping a Caribbean cocktail as skies turn red and the sun drops out of view. Is there anything more you could desire?

This architectural gem is for sale at $425,000 and available to view by serious buyers. For more details or to arrange a viewing contact the listing agent now, see the full listing here or find out more about Cozumel real estate here.
