Casa Rubia is the ultimate in luxury Oceanfront villa vacation rental in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. The home has 6 bedrooms and a permanent staff.
Casa Rubia is an ultra-luxury oceanfront villa & vacation home rental in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico, the brainchild of Canadian real estate developer and former World Cup downhill champion Cary Mullen. One would be hard-pressed to think of another Mexican luxury private villa or vacation home rental, Pacific beach or otherwise, with more attention paid to comfort and detail: sprawling, immaculately kept grounds, main home additional suites; extent and quality of furnishings; exceptional bilingual staff; sun, surf and relaxation accouterments.
Casa Rubia bears witness to Puerto Escondido coming of age, overshadowing the best that neighboring resort town Huatulco, down the coast, offers. .It’s hard to not use superlatives when describing Casa Rubia, perhaps because of the research and thought that Mullen put into creating this luxury oceanfront villa, part of his broader development, Vivo Resorts.
Background to the Concept of Casa Rubia as a Private, Pacific Oceanfront Resort Villa in Mexico
Mullen began considering building a beachfront resort community several years ago while in Maui, recovering from a ski accident. He made a list of 44 factors for ranking (i.e. weather, safety and security, investment timing, etc.), considered 30 countries, and personally scouted over a dozen. He settled on Puerto Escondido, a Pacific coast beach resort town in the state of Oaxaca, southern Mexico. Hence, the seed was planted for his condominium and oceanfront lot development, Vivo Resorts.
A major consideration was finding somewhere that Mullen would be comfortable bringing his wife and three children, as well as his parents, both for brief vacations and spending extended periods of time, and with a view to eventual permanent residency. Before even breaking ground he acquired Casa Rubia, initially earmarked as his personal family retreat and as a showcase for prospective condo and lot buyers. Mullen comments about the latter: “I wanted to show people the type of vacation home that could be built right on the beach, so at Casa Rubia I can both showcase the villa and at the same time point to barren oceanfront on either side and say ‘see the lot next door; that’s what this used to be, and this is what you can build at Vivo Resorts’.”
Mullen in due course decided that he personally preferred luxury condominium living for longer term visits, so he set aside one of his units for himself and his family. Accordingly, Casa Rubia now serves two purposes:
- To host clients considering investing in the Vivo Resorts’ oceanfront condos and building lots.
- As an ultra-luxury oceanfront villa for short-term rental by individual couples, families, groups, or special events.
Facilities at Casa Rubia, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico
Imagine a luxury family vacation, or a family reunion, for up to 24 people, in an expansive 15,000 sq ft Pacific oceanfront villa complex (the living room, bar and game area all facing the ocean are alone 3,000 sq ft); or perhaps a wedding or 25th anniversary, or simply a group of friends wanting to spend quality leisure vacation time together.
The pampering begins with a dedicated bilingual staff including maids, butler, property manager, chauffer / handyman (private cars of course – for driving you into town, nearby sights, restaurants, etc.), and to top it all off, your own professional Mexican chef to prepare your choice of meals, be it internationally renowned Oaxacan cuisine, contemporary North American, or continental.
The luxurious six bedrooms, each with a spacious en suite three piece washroom, consist of:
- Two oceanfront master bedrooms with king size beds, sitting areas and enough additional space to sleep additional guests
- Two deluxe ocean side suites, each with two queen size beds and extra space for lounging and sleeping
- Two garden bungalows, each with two queen size beds
Each bedroom suite is equipped with a ceiling fan and air conditioning.
The media room features an oversize wraparound couch, WIFI and satellite TV. It opens onto an exquisite dining room which seats up to 26 guests around an illuminated onyx table. Both rooms face the pool, and further beyond, 112 feet of private sandy Pacific beach. Words cannot do justice to the extent and quality of furnishings at this private Pacific oceanfront resort, nor to the attention Mullen has paid to detail.
