Our tranquil home is ideal for honeymooners, couples getaway and adventurers with exotic bamboos, flowers, fruit trees, herbs, coffee and gardens to stroll and sit in while gazing out upon the mountain vistas, where you breathe, do yoga, think, read and relax. Your bedrooms and bathroom are separate from our quarters for your privacy. You have your own California Kitchen, a BBQ area, living spaces and staff help. If it rains very hard, the outdoor kitchen does get damp but we have options for you in heavy rain. Incredible waterfalls are a short 20 minute walk from the house, town is a 10 minute drive.
We live in the exclusive Quintas del Bosque gated mountain development. You have spacious quarters with a Californian kitchen, living spaces and large decks.
Our home was built with 4 elements in mind - adventure, imagination, love and nature. "Casa del Fuego" will surround you with lush gardens – filled with exotic bamboo, flowers, fruit trees, herbs, coffee and gardens to stroll and sit in while gazing out upon the mountain vistas.
With total privacy, you can enter from the back stairs through the newly built California kitchen. This is a fully stocked outdoor kitchen with hot and cold running water, gas stove top, small fridge, gas BBQ grill and all the utensils, pots and dishes to cook with. Just bring your food. It is undercover and cool with the breeze. Next to it are two benches to lounge about and a dining table for four people. The two bedrooms and your bathroom are on the same level. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a massage table in a spacious room. The second guestroom has twin bunk beds.
If you need to totally disconnect from TV, loud music and constant technology, then this is the place for you as none is offered. We are within a secured gated mountain development, lush with trees and beauty. This is a break from the hustle and bustle of an over-stimulated world, where you breathe, think, read and relax. Town is a 10 minute drive.
This property is NOT suitable for young children as there are steep slopes, walkways and decks with little or no railings.
Besides enjoying the gardens, you can walk around the estate following the roads. In the spring we have flocks of parrots. Summer is filled with hummingbird by day and fireflies at night.
Air conditioning is not needed. When it's hot there is always a spot to be in the shade or go down to the stream or wander over to the waterfalls. The bedrooms stay cool. Winter day time temperature is perfect and in the evenings a long sleeve is all you may need.
If you love to write, enjoy painting and sketching, play a musical instrument, this is the place to be inspired. Bring your yoga mat and find your perfect spot to meditate.
You will have the feeling of being in the mountains. Across the valley you can barely see the other houses. You have total privacy.
We built a natural earthen structure with a live roof that can be used as a sweat lodge/sauna, massage/mediation space or reading room that guests can experience. Jacques is around on the grounds based on what hours you want, so if you need anything, call for him. He you to bring up to the house when you first arrive.
