It is located north of Puerto Vallarta, near the town of Punta de Mita, actually in between Punta de Mita and Sayulita. The beach that we live on is called Playa Careyeros. It reminds me of the beach at my aunt's house in Malibu. It is very quiet and peaceful, except the water is a lot warmer. It is our little piece of paradise. Join me on a tour of our little home.
This is what you see looking from the beach. The kitchen is the building on the left, the building on the right is the bedroom and bathroom.
This is the view looking down from the driveway.
These are all pictures of the inside of the bedroom and sitting area. When there is just two of us there, there is a table and chairs in front of the window seat. When we have extra people we have blow up beds and we move the table and chairs outside. In the picture of the house from the beach, you can see them at the top of the stairs.
I made the pillow covers and the cover for the window seat. I also crocheted the turquoise and white blanket on the bed. I was able to get a white matelisse quilt at Tuesday morning. I don't buy very much down there for bedding and linens. If it is decent quality it is really expensive. So it is a lot easier to find what I want in Denver and then put it in a suitcase and take it with me.
The first picture is the wall above the sink. I know it looks really classy, but the reason we tape plastic bags to the window frames, is because we only have screens, and in the summer when it is hot, this helps keep the cool air from the air conditioner inside. We take town the plastic once November hits.
You have also seen some of these pictures on my blog. Some are from the Denver Aquarium and some are from the small towns near our home. I love all of the aqua and turquoise colors. I felt very lucky to find the shower curtain at Target a couple of years ago. It went great with the colors of the house. I got the towels from Target at the same time. The rugs are from a store in Puerto Vallarta.
The first picture is a picture of a terrace and garden behind the kitchen. The second, is the view from the front patio of the house. I love this view. I can watch the ocean for hours. This is also the view that I wake up to in the mornings when we can have the shutters open, normally from November to mid June.
This is also the last view that I see at night, when I go to sleep. I love this place. As the Mexican's say, "muy tranquila", very tranquil.
Thank you for joining me on a tour of our little home. I hope that you enjoyed it. I had fun taking the pictures, especially around suitcases and blow up beds. I forgot to get some pictures of the bathroom counter and the closet area, but I think this works. I don't have any pictures of the kitchen in case you are wondering. Maybe next time I go.
I would love to hear any comments that you have. I always love hearing from you.
