Careyes, Mexico
6 Bedrooms and 7 Bathrooms (Sleeps 12)

This fantastic villa is located in Careyes, the most exclusive enclave on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. A long winding drive brings one to the top of a cliff where this remarkable house sits. Sol de Occidente, like all the villas here, is designed in the unique style for which Careyes is famous. It's an imposing modern villa, Luis Barragan in feeling and built on two floors around a huge palapa. Not only is it architecturally marvelous, the views are breathtaking as well. To the east is the dramatic coastline and to the west across a bay on an opposite point is Sol de Oriente, an equally fantastic villa, which is a mirror image of this villa.

Throughout the interiors are enormous rooms, sweeping curved walls, and open living spaces. Many covered and open terraces add to the outdoor seating areas, which have with large comfortable banquettes and oversized pillows. One of the most unique features of Sol de Occidente is the extraordinary 11,000sq. ft. infinity pool, which virtually encircles the villa. From the main house a path leads past the bungalows and the tower and continues down to a private beach, with a beach house and jetty. There is a funicular, which can be used instead of walking.
