Casa del Sol (the house of the sun) is also known as the "Grateful Dead" house because it was once owned by a member of the band. It has fabulous air brushed murals both inside and outside the villa. The second floor living room has a hand carved couch and chairs upholstered in a luxurious leopard patterned silk. Colorful silks have been used extensively to cover throw pillows in the living spaces and bedrooms of the villa. Many are shaped like reef fish in the bedrooms and make a colorful tropical accent along side the lovely handmade quilts for each of the beds. The villa also has hand painted Talavera china dishes that were custom made for the house in a sun motif. Exotic masks and cultural ornaments from around Latin America give this villa a decidedly exotic aura, and its spacious living spaces makes it a perfect villa for entertaining. New stoves and refrigerators were just installed in both kitchens. One kitchen is by the large patio entertainment area at ground level, and the other is on the second floor off the interior living room. Both kitchens are equipped and have raised counters with bar stools.
Casa del Sol offers 4,400 sq. ft. of comfortable living space along with spacious balconies and a rooftop observation deck that overlooks Yal-ku Lagoon. Tropical birds, pelicans and migratory birds are common to see, and after you've enjoyed the sunset, thisis a great location to stargaze. There are five air-conditioned bedrooms. The living spaces are immense and well suited for entertaining on any scale; from intimate meals inside, to outdoor extravaganzas on the first floor patio. For outdoor cookouts there is a waterside cabaña/pavilion with a thatched roof, and a large sandy backyard area between the villa and the lagoon which has a swimming pool.
