Casa Del Mar Bonito (“house of the beautiful sea”) is a luxury house of unparalleled beauty. The owners travelled worldwide before settling on the most beautiful spot on earth to build their dream house. The house can best be described as “laid back lux” since it is grand in appearance, furnishings and views while at the same time designed in such a way to create a feeling of relaxation, solitude and seclusion. The villa is an eclectic blend of various styles including, Italian, English, Mexican, and American.
The owners designed all the architectural details and specific furniture for the villa. Every detail was designed and custom made. They then commissioned master craftsmen in many countries to execute their designs. All the marble sculptures and fountains were sculpted in Beijing, China, of Egyptian and Italian marble. The mosaic marble floors, walls and tables were hand crafted in Bali, Indonesia. The doors and furniture were hand carved In Indonesia from mahogany to fit in specific locations within the house. All the outdoor furniture including tables, chairs and loungers were hand carved from teakwood in Indonesia. The detailing of the house and the dramatic conservatory brick domed ceiling were completed by Mexican artisans. The marble floors and counters are from Indonesia and China. The pool tile was produced in Japan. The glass shower doors were hand etched in Java, Indonesia.
The villa is surrounded by a 10 foot wall that provides maximum security and privacy. Upon entering, there are beautiful gardens that generate a feeling of being lost in a sea of flowers and greenery. There is another walled courtyard inside the exterior walls where the pool and additional gardens are located for maximum privacy.

It is located on the opposite side from the ocean in a private unobservable courtyard off the pool side terrace to provide maximum privacy.
Upon entering the villa there is a dramatic conservatory with a custom sculpted dolphin fountain and cafe table. The ceiling of the conservatory is a red brick dome (cupola) that stretches 40 feet above the floor. There is a beautiful balcony that leads to the master bedroom suite complex.
The villa was designed so that a maximum amount of privacy could be maintained while being located directly on the beach.
