Casa Las Quimeras is a stunning new villa at the highest point in Careyes with panoramic views of the Costa Careyes coastline, Mexican Pacific and the Sierra Madre mountains. Imbedded in lush tropical gardens the villa was designed by Alex Possenbacher in a distinctive Careyes style that at the same time very much represents the personality of its French owners.
The separation between the villa’s components allows for maximum privacy and yet at the same time the large communal areas like the living & dining palapa, family TV room and resort size pool provide ideal spaces for socializing.
The master bedroom is a mini villa onto itself with its own small pool, furnished terrace, office, TV room and ocean view bathroom. At the other end of the property is a bungalow with side by side deluxe suites with ocean view terraces and bathrooms while a tower in between provides two more deluxe bedrooms one a duplex suite with double height ocean facing window and the other with two landscaped terraces with ocean and mountain views. On the ground level of the tower is a kid's bedroom with three sets of bunk beds, play area and their own TV room.
The resort size pool has ample daybeds and chaises along with panoramic views. At the end of the pool is an impressive bar with trellised seating area a focal point both day and night, a place to enjoy the butler’s famous “king of the margaritas”.
Furnishings and fabrics for the villa are from Mexico, Central America, France and Bali creating interior spaces that are both refined and comfortable.
The most dazzling aspect of the villa has to be the two acres of blooming tropical gardens. There are flowers, exotic plants and trees in every direction, this is one of the most impressive gardens on the Pacific coast.
Within walking distance of the villa is the exclusive Playa Rosa Beach Club, with its restaurant, bar and water sports center not to mention the very appealing stretch of beach on a calm protected bay ideal for paddle boarding, ocean kayaking and snorkeling. The nearby plaza has a variety of restaurants, shops and an art gallery.
Careyes is a very international community, an unusual combination of jet set chic and eco. Careyes has a world class polo club, a tennis center and hosts the internationally recognized Ondalinda Music Festival and the Arte Careyes Film and Arts Festival
The villa, which is now for rent, is fully staffed with butler, chef, maids and gardeners. The villa is on a private gated street within the gate guarded community of Costa Careyes.
