San Sebastian Mexico,Puerto Vallarta - 4 BR, 5.5 Baths
An 8,000 square foot oceanfront luxury villa, Casa San Sebastian was inspired by the Mexican Pacific Coast architectural style that originated in nearby Careyes and has been made famous by renowned Mexican architects. This new palapa style emphasizes a sensual blending of local colors, textures, and materials in a manner that renders the Casa an integral part of its environmental surroundings.
Visit and you will be surrounded by sweeping views, sunshine, color and open spaces. The architecture and rich Mexican colors are as dazzling as the remarkable setting.
Life at Casa San Sebastian is nature. Ocean waves spill over massive boulders beneath one?s feet, brightly colored parrots and parakeets serenade from the mountainside jungle that is the front door, and (to adopt the romantic phrasing of the travel writer) a soothing tropical sun warms a visitor?s body while soft Pacific breezes gently caress one?s soul.
The focal point and highlight of Casa San Sebastian is the circular palapa-covered living room with its 180 degree panoramic vista of the sea and Los Arcos, the offshore trio of massive boulders that jut from the sea to form Puerto Vallarta?s best known landmark. The spacious living room, its adjacent open dining area, and an ocean side gathering and entertainment terrace with its own palapa overlook a jacuzzi and fifty-foot long infinity pool, strategically situated to create an illusion of cean and pool blending into a spectacular vista of gently crashing surf and offshore rock formations.
Luxurious white marble floors are outlined with traditional pebble designs and hand-set in concrete by native artisans who used more than 100,000 tiny stones to complete their mosaic. Windows, wherever used, are situated for a single purpose, to emphasize the spectacular vistas offered from every vantage point. The four bedrooms, outside palapa-roofed entertainment area, TV room and breakfast area, and modern American-style kitchen are all situated to overlook the Pacific, Los Arcos, and stunning oceanside cliffs.
The peak of the soaring palapa is 35 feet above the living room floor and its thatched palm roof is of a weather proof design with a hidden concrete liming designed to cool the interior and reduce maintenance. The peaked interior of the palapa dominates the living area, its angular ceiling lined with over 3,000 bamboo reeds harvested from nearby jungle hillsides and individually nailed in place by native workers.
The Casa's entertainment terrace is shaded by its own palapa and overlooks a jacuzzi and fifty-foot long infinity pool. This spectacular, private outdoor setting creates an illusion of ocean and pool blending into a breath taking vista of gently crashing surf and offshore rock formations. Below the terrace, take a dip in the ocean and enjoy service from our sea side bar.
Casa San Sebastian features a cook, maid, houseman and a caretaker who will greet you with smiles as warm as the Mexican sunshine. Two of the servants live in separate quarters on the Casa grounds.
