Casa Majani – Punta Mita – Mexico

Pool at Night


6 Bedrooms and 8 Bathrooms (Sleeps 12-14)

From world-renowned architects Manolo Mestre and Juan Collignon comes Casa Majani. Their holistic approach to architecture pays homage to the natural while incorporating the contemporary. Native simplicity and warm colors complement modern conveniences resulting in an alluring and meditative experience. Every room is designed with intention. A network of pathways through expansive reflection pools connects each unique structure, creating the illusion this remarkable casa is suspended over the powerful Pacific. Situated on the northern most tip of the Punta Mita peninsula, Casa Majani is inside the gates of the Four Seasons Resort and guests have use of its facilities.

Two connecting pools blend with sea and sky, enhancing undisturbed views of the blue horizon with over 150 ft. of infinity edge. The smaller of the pools encircles the Keili Suite, offering a dynamic and diverse swimming experience. Nearby, the whimsical bar extending unsupported from the wall is a restored vintage surf board. A ground level fire pit for intimate gatherings and fantastic sunsets is situated on the sand beach terrace.

Palapa Living and Dining Areas
At the center of this impressive casa stands the grand palapa. Nested beneath a palm-thatched roof, sits an almost ethereal living and dining terrace. Steadfast ocean breezes and sun-bathed terraces bless this marriage of nature and nurture. Striking ocean vistas surrounds all points in Casa Majani’s central gathering area. A tropical wood dining table for 12, created by local craftsmen, provides an unmatched vantage point for the surf and sunsets.

Indoor Dining and Kitchen
The tropical wood indoor dining table, seating 12, is set under a vaulted ceiling. Surrounded by colorful native art and bordered by a contemplative pool, this comfortable space is a haven from the elements. The graceful kitchen fits both form and function. Amidst ocean-facing windows, everything from delicious simple Mexican fare to lavish haute cuisine is happily prepared. Charming yet modern, the kitchen opens onto an outdoor patio, bordered by a pond, with an intimate breakfast nook seating 12.

Media and Games Room
This air-conditioned room features a Bowers and Wilkins home theater and stereo system with a 63” HDTV, US and Mexican channels, Blu-ray DVD and Apple TV and an array of board games including: dominoes, chess, backgammon as well as cards.

Tucari (Good Energy)
This yoga and fitness room, which has a relaxing Zen feel, has native wood flooring. Floor to ceiling windows offer a view of vast reflection pools and lush native gardens. Light and airy, Tucari can be opened on two sides to take advantage of good weather and closed to provide a sanctuary from the heat.

StoneCrest – Providenciales – Turk & Caicos

5 Bedrooms with 5.5 Bathrooms (Sleeps 10)
Stonecrest is a beautiful house situated on Ocean Point, an exclusive enclave on the south shore of the island. Though it was built only in 1997, Stonecrest appears to have stood for ages. Its layout is perfect and offers guests the maximum amount of privacy with three floors and numerous indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Every room has a sweeping view of the sparkling waters of gorgeous Taylor Bay and unobstructed sunsets in the evening. There are five equal master bedrooms as well as a very pretty pool and large terrace. At the edge of the water is a dock with a ladder for swimming in the bay. Stonecrest’s design also incorporates numerous amenities with the latest technology to make this a truly gracious and comfortable retreat for the most discerning guests.

The wonderful location provides an ever-changing coastal landscape and captures the entire palette from the intense turquoise of Chalk Sound, a national park one passes on the way to the house, to the pale blue of Taylor Bay, which is ringed almost entirely by a ribbon of sugar white sand. The water here is tranquil and quite shallow for a great distance out, making this a great beach for children. It’s only a few minutes walk or one can also get to it by swimming from the dock across a very narrow channel.
