Wanderlust: Shell House in Isla Mujeres Mexico

Um, Hel-lo!

Introducing: Casa Caracol Caribbean Paradise





"An Island 20 minute boat ride from Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean, be totally seduced and enchanted by this Romantic Architectural wonder facing the Caribbean Ocean in one of the most beautiful places in the world,180 degrees of open water full of colors you thought existed only in paintings, the constant breeze, the most amazing sunrises and sunsets you can imagine, full moon rising over the ocean."






What an amazing home!

 

 The architecture and grounds speak for themselves. Amazing! Can't find a right angle anywhere and the curving walls are beautiful.


A peek into one of the bathrooms. Love!

Now for the interior...


Good bones. Poor execution. Let me help you!
Remove: bath mats.
Add one of these large rugs instead:




Plastic dining set? I have higher expectations of an estate so unique. It needs just a brief visit from a professional interior designer to be ready for the pages of any high end shelter magazine. I know "It's a rental", but there are many durable, elegant (and sustainable) resources out there.

The website also mentions the house is a perfect location for a private wedding. How unique!


Full Rental information can be found HERE. Tell them Fiore Studio sent you, and we travel! :)

Casa Caracol is 14 years old nautilus shell design which provides great cool vistas of the ocean, hamlet, as well as of the forest along with concurrent intimacy as well as serenity. The villa is located in a beautiful and calm urbanization that gives you the true holiday experience from the moment you arrive.

Yes, Chritsino, I believe we covered that above. You are welcome for the profile on your vacation rental, by the way.

Woah, such an eccentric house! That's a very unusual design and i'm sure it's very expensive to rent, but there are other vacation rentals at Isla Mujeres México where we can stay at without bleeding the wallet that much haha!
