Description

The "new palapa" style emphasizes a sensual blending of local colors, textures, and materials in a manner that renders the structure an integral part of its environmental surroundings. The four bedrooms, open air entertainment area, TV room and breakfast area, and modern kitchen are all situated to overlook the Pacific, Los Arcos and the stunning Oceanside cliffs. The large sandy man-made beach has a bar. Just ten minutes from Puerto Vallarta's famed restaurants, sports fishing fleet and trendy nightclubs. The focal point and highlight of Casa San Sebastian is the circular palapa-covered living room with its 180 degree panoramic vista of the sea and Los Arcos, the offshore trio of massive boulders that jut from the sea to form Puerto Vallarta's best known landmark. The spacious living room, its adjacent open dining area, and an ocean side gathering and entertainment terrace with its own palapa overlook a jacuzzi and fifty-foot long infinity pool, strategically situated to create an illusion of ocean and pool blending into a spectacular vista of gently crashing surf and offshore rock formations. Luxurious white marble floors are outlined with traditional pebble designs and hand-set in concrete by native artisans who used more than 100,000 tiny stones to complete their mosaic. Windows, wherever used, are situated for a single purpose, to emphasize the spectacular vistas offered from every vantage point. The four bedrooms, outside palapa-roofed entertainment area, TV room and breakfast area, and modern American-style kitchen are all situated to overlook the Pacific, Los Arcos, and stunning oceanside cliffs. The peak of the soaring palapa is 35 feet above the living room floor and its thatched palm roof is of a weather proof design with a hidden concrete liming designed to cool the interior and reduce maintenance. The peaked interior of the palapa dominates the living area, its angular ceiling lined with over 3,000 bamboo reeds harvested from nearby jungle hillsides and individually nailed in place by native workers. Inside Casa San Sebastian two half-century old hiquera (fig) trees form an integral partnership with this split-level residence, their gnarled trunks jutting upward through white marble floors and specifically-wrought ten-foot ceilings. The hiquera's massive umbrella-like limbs structures dominate the angular palapa peak and stand guard over the villa, combining simple shade from the tropical sun with a sense of centuries-old permanence. Vivid Mexican floral colors, pinks, blues and yellows, have been strategically used to highlight and create interior drama. Such accent colors are favored in this new architectural style because of their affinity with the surrounding environment and because the colors offer a whimsical contrast with the white walls and blue-sky open-aired feel of the palapa. The architect Alberto Alvarez, a local award winning University of Guadalajara graduate, adopted the Pacific Coast style with grace and ease, and added his own particular creative touch resulting in a dramatic and spectacular residence. Comfort and luxury were always on our minds. The villa provides a happy, relaxed, leisurely setting, a place to recharge, to revitalize.
