LA CASITA CELESTIAL, as the name implies, is a Heavenly Place. From the moment you approach the stone-embedded welcoming mat, you’ll know that you are in for a “stellar” experience.
Its GRACIOUS CENTRAL ROOM is filled with stars – and a small but comfortable sitting area, a high-definition television with American and Canadian programming, a cozy kitchen and a small but eclectic library including books on Mexico – its rich history and culture, its politics, and, especially, its remarkable arts and crafts. As of Feb. 14, 2022 we have fiber optic internet service.
A large sliding glass door allows you to walk onto THE TERRACE WITH ITS MAGNIFICENT PALAPA, a thatched roof structure used since the time of the Mayans and Aztecs to capture sea breezes and keep COOL.
Under the palapa is your own private, cooling plunge pool (which also can be heated), and classic equipal furniture for dining. Surrounding you is lush jungle with its fascinating birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
There are TWO BEDROOMS, each with its own bath and distinctive character, filled with works of Mexican artists from all around the Republic. Keeping with the celestial theme, one bedroom celebrates the sun rising from the east, with roosters standing as a mute reminder that there is a great day a-dawning. The other celebrates the moon shining out over the Gulf of Cortez with owls keeping watch over your deep and restful sleep. To aid in that sleep, both bedrooms have ceiling fans and can be air-conditioned if needed. The bedrooms are separated by the living area, ensuring maximum privacy for guests.
CASITA CELESTIAL is part of a three-house villa -- VILLA DE VISTAS (The House of Views). LA CASA QUE CANTA (The House that Sings – 6000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 4 baths) sits on the top of the hill. EL NIDO DE LA TORTUGA (The Nest of the Turtle – 1000 sq. ft., two bedrooms, one bath) is nestled into the hillside underneath LA CASA. Another long stairway down leads you to CASITA CELESTIAL.
