Some time ago we were getting ready to plan our fortieth birthday getaway. We knew we wanted to celebrate with others and we knew we wanted to feel like we were far away BUT not travel too far since it was just going to be a long weekend. I went back through a few rental companies I have used in the past because the pool of homes companies have to offer are forever changing. I found a gem (I mean I found the whole damn treasure chest)!
I have never stayed in a room where I swear in the morning I could get a tan right from in our bed. It was like the beach was right in our room. A large private covered deck with inviting outdoor furniture and ceiling fan is right off the master.

There is even a full stable in the basement of the villa (I am getting ahead of myself).

|Seriously LOOK at that tub!|
The two halves of the house are connected from underneath the villa by an underground grotto. A maze of hallways, multiple garages (one with a FIREPLACE!), wine cellar and of course the STABLE!
The other two bedrooms are attached to the pavilion next to the pool along with the SECOND kitchen (YUP, two kitchens)! It is more of a service kitchen but sure came in handy for serving lunch and extra fridge storage etc. Also, for those couples staying in those two bedrooms they had their own coffee readily at hand every morning. There are several ways to prepare your meals outdoors including a large gas grill and a hibachi style grill. The pavilion and pool area is where we spent the majority of our time. There is no reason to be anywhere else! With beautiful outdoor seating there is ample places to rest your tanned feet. The pavilion had several seating areas, a huge concrete slab dining table that could sit MANY and a grand built in fireplace which took the chill of on those cool October nights. Using the IPOD hookups to the speakers throughout the pavilion you could throw your very own dance party. (I'll tell you several spontaneous ones occurred while we were there)
The pool and hot tub are just perfectly placed on the ocean's edge ~ it felt like. I could have sat there for hours watching the sun rise & set, the tides change, the wildlife live and the kayakers/paddle boarders come and go. WAIT - I did sit there for hours and watch all those things and more! Forgot about the harvest moon rise and the dolphins playing in the channel. I am not making this stuff up!
The villa sleeps a maximum of 15 people and can be rented for weddings and other special events. I am going to try to think of another reason to get back there because I really miss it! I MEAN REALLY MISS IT!
Watch this video tour of Villa De Suenos and you will LONG to go sit by the ocean in a comfy lounge chair with a built in table to rest your cool beverage on, too!
Here are a few other beautiful photos from our stay at the BREATHTAKING Villa De Suenos ~ House of Dreams.

I will blog in a separate post about the trip itself - the villa was just TOO FABULOUS not to write about!
