Careyes, Mexico
5 Bedrooms and 6 Bathrooms (Sleeps 10)

Careyes is known for its visually glorious scenery and unique style of architecture, which has become world famous. Houses are painted in vibrant colors and have fabulous towering palapas housing living and dining areas. Candelabros is no exception. This spacious villa sits on 5,000 square meters of land overlooking the brilliant ultramarine blue Pacific Ocean and was designed to be as comfortable for a large group as it is for just one couple. In front of the main house is a long infinity swimming pool, which wraps around the terrace, with a small fountain and heated Jacuzzi. Two other features of this fantastic villa are the wonderful 200-year-old sculptural candelabros cactus trees and a romantic three-story primary bedroom tower. Throughout the villa’s interiors are large rooms filled with contemporary works of art mixed with stylish Central American Textiles and Mexican treasures. Outdoor living spaces include covered and open terraces with large comfortable sun beds and oversized pillows.

A cobblestone walkway and stairs lead down to the beautiful Playa Rosa beach (three minutes on foot and one by car), where there is a restaurant under a large palapa. There is also El Careyes Hotel, which has a restaurant, pool, small beach, tennis courts, an excellent spa and shops (which will ship to the U.S). For those wanting golf, there is a spectacular course, which is carved into the jungle along the beach in Tamarindo, about 45 minutes south.
