the terrace and pool. The pool, distinguished by a glass mosaic
mermaid at its bottom, overlooks sweeping ocean views. A covered
porch on the terrace provides shade for alfresco dining and
relaxing, and a full bath and a built-in gas grill are conveniently
Just inside Casa Luna is the well-equipped gourmet
kitchen and the living area with all media for a lazy evening's
entertainment. French doors open from the living area to a pergola-covered
patio, set with a dining table and chairs, which looks out to
yet another mesmerizing sea vista.
The air-conditioned queen bedroom adjoins this
tiled patio. Its ensuite bath features handpainted sink and
tiles, and a shower with a river-stone floor. Another curved
staircase just off the living area ascends to Casa Luna's upper
level, where a lovely, breezy bedroom/bath suite with a king
four-poster bed overlooks the ocean from its own private balcony.
Just outside the spacious bath area upstairs is an expansive
tiled patio for private sunbathing, and a path leading to the
hot tub tucked into the hillside.
Designed with an Italian-villa flavor - french
doors thrown open to fresh breezes and inspiring views, artistic
concrete curves and whitewashed walls - Casa Luna is the perfect
romantic villa. Privacy, wonderful views, and sublime white-sand
beaches just a short drive away await you.
