This architect designed custom home was completed 4 years ago with all modern conveniences. The tastefully appointed guest apartment offers privacy, is self-contained with one bedroom, one bath and incredible sunset views over the yachts at anchor and Tetakawi Mountain. Total area of living space is 1,000 sq. ft. with access to pleasant green lawns, colorful gardens and a barbeque on the deck. This fully air conditioned residence offers 9 ft ceilings, tiled floors and counters, cedar cabinets in a gorgeous modern Spanish style home. Watch the boating action as you sip coffee from the queen sized bed or lounge on the decks overlooking a Mediterranean style view. Swim in nearby coconut fringed beaches, hike under the bluffs at low tide, or walk the cobblestone streets to the marina, restaurants and shops. Rent an ATV to get around, or bring or rent a car.
About the Owner: We are sailors who bumped into this boating mecca en route to our boat in Mazatlan and fell in love with San Carlos. We have been stunned at the number of friends we have made here, and our ever expanding social life. We love to sail to remote anchorages, hangout and snorkel. Also to ride horses through the arroyos and on the beaches. Paul is an artist and yacht broker and Cate helped establish a Global Health Center at Oregon Health & Science University and now works remotely. It always feels great to arrive back in San Carlos, where the cares of the world drop away.
Why the Owner Chose San Carlos: This is our home, we bought the land in 2003 and built several years later over a 2 year period finishing in 2008. We like the fact that San Carlos is only 240 miles South of the Arizona border and accessible by a 4 lane toll highway or flight from Phoenix, Arizona to Guaymas, Mexico. The airport is a 15 minute drive from the Caracol.
We love to walk on the beach and explore the tide pools, or sip Margaritas with friends while listening to music in a beach side palapa. One evening at the Soggy Peso, as my favorite band Bohemia was packing up, Omar the pianist launched into Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, as the sun set across the water it was so beautiful, I thought life couldn't get better than this! Though Danny' Moreno's singing at Ruby's Wine bar comes very close. San Carlos rocks. Oh and nothing rivals Bonaficio's Cotton Club Restaurant when the moon is full - stunning!
The Unique Benefits of this Villa: The views are world class in a Mediterranean like neighborhood. We enjoy peace and quiet on the Caracol, and often get lulled to sleep with the lapping of the waves on the shore. It is so beautiful here, that any extra sight seeing activity around San Carlos is a bonus. The house offers a birds-eye-view of the yachts going by and beyond to the Sea of Cortez. Across the bay from the house is the majestic Tetakawi Mountain where sunsets can be astounding. We are walking distance to two charming, small sandy beaches and boating activity. There is a nearby Beach Club, with pool and kayaks.
