Welcome to Casa Viva! Casa Viva is a recently renovated historic home in Old Mazatlán. It is within easy walking distance to the main market (el Mercado), Plaza Machado, Angela Peralta Theatre, The Cathedral, Olas Altas beach, Playa Norte beach and all the cultural activities and excitement of the Historic Center.
This is a 4500+ sq ft home, 4 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath with large living areas and a chef’s kitchen. The kitchen has been completely redone, has stainless steel appliances—including a 6 burner stove and dishwasher--toaster, blender and coffee maker, and an enormous slab granite island that comfortably seats 4. It has soaring ceilings and original vigas (wood beams) with skylight .
There is a formal entry way, formal living room, formal dining room, relaxing TV/family room with wi-fi and cable, and half bath on the main level as well.
All 3 bedrooms on the main level have walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom even has its own attached huge dressing room, which is almost as large as the bedroom itself!
Nearly all rooms are furnished with hand-made wood furniture from Mesillas, a town in the hills an hour from Mazatlán. Each bedroom has it's own theme: the master is 'the sea' ('el mar') and is decorated in soothing turquoise, white, and cream to evoke the feeling of the ocean. The next bedroom is 'the red room' ('el cuarto rojo') and is bold and modern with classic design elements. The 3rd is 'the color room' ('el cuarto de los colores') and is bright and festive with all the colors you associate with Mexico. The upstairs bedroom is 'the earth' ('la tierra') and has soothing blues, green, and beige tones.
One of many unique features of this home is the sliding glass wall in the main hallway that leads to a rock garden and 2 sets of stairs. One set leads to the laundry room and service area. The other set with the elegant wrought iron stairs and Juliet balcony, leads to a large bedroom. This room also has a sliding glass wall that leads to 2 large terraces, 1 of which overlooks the pool, and another bathroom.
Outside you will find a shaded dining area with tropical fan. Walk across the beautiful lawn to reach your own private pool with lounge chairs and tables. This is a great area to relax and have a margarita! There is also a full bathroom with shower, only accessible from outside, so you can rinse off after the pool or the beach.
This home also has 2 separate areas for off-street parking if you happen to rent a car or 2. A car is not necessary to enjoy Mazatlan, however. It is a very walkable city and pulmonias (open air taxis) are plentiful. Make sure you bargain for the fare and decide on it before getting in.
Come enjoy our unique and beautiful home. Casa Viva is in the heart of the renaissance going on in the Historic Center of Mazatlán, yet on a quiet side street so you can relax and enjoy time with friends and family. We would love to welcome you to sunny Mazatlan!
