Wonderful Vacation Houses For Rent Around The World
This extraordinary villa is one of the most famous on Mexico's pacific coast. Built for Gian Franco Brignone, the creator of Costa Careyes, this fantastic house is as extraordinary as the gentleman himself is. The first villa here, Mi Ojo is designed in the unique Mexican-Mediterranean style for which Careyes is now famous. Its architecture also blends the modern look of the Luis Barragan school with the primitive palapa and the result is visually sublime.
Built atop a rocky cliff with panoramic views of the coastline and surrounded by palm trees, the bright blue villa consists of an enormous two story palapa and another building housing all the large bedrooms suites, which all have bathtubs. Mi Ojo is designed so that all the large rooms have fabulous views and are also very private. Several open and covered terraces on different levels offer wonderful sitting areas with great views. A few steps down from the living area of the palapa is the very long and stylish pool with another terrace. Just below is a 240 ft. long hanging bridge linking the villa to a small peninsula, which is part of the property. It has a small natural botanical garden as well as meditation platforms.
Amenities Fiber optic telephone line, satellite TV, fax and Internet access and laundry room. All the large bathrooms have big bathtubs.
