Alejandro Penthouse

As you wind up a fern-covered Grecian Stairway, a caressing sea breeze brushes across your face. Nestled snugly amongst the treetops in an exotic dwelling, experience a vista of the bay and Gringo Gulch, a lasting image within your heart for all time, this room is known as the Blue Room to wayfarers. High above the spacious grey-lined stairwell is a pastel fresco in bas-relief’ carved in stone. A brilliant technique utilized by artisans since time began…etched here is a handsome bustier of the master and owner of the villa, Alexander. A tribute from his painter Miriam brilliantly depicts him as a composer who orchestrated master craftsmen to keep his grandmother’s legendary home alive for eternity. In Mexico, for a lad just out of college, this can be a taxing, almost insurmountable task, yet you will see he has achieved his desire like a Prince with a dexterous finesse and grace. This was Alexander’s room. Secure, antiquated double wooden doors open into a celestial sitting room with a sumptuous purple divan and a fold out royal purple velvet couch that easily sleeps a cozy couple. The penthouse provides the most spacious closet and a full kitchen. Alejandro is especially appealing to those who appreciate a unique ambiance, with sturdy wooden shutters that frame a whimsical view of the sea. Sliding glass doors lead to a expansive white-tiled patio perfect for fiestas and private entertaining and decorated with pots of lovely white roses. * Wifi * TV * Kitchen * Patio
