After vacationing in Mexico many times, primarily in Puerto Vallarta and along the Riviera Nayarit, we decided we wanted a home of our own on the beach. As beachfront homes are not easy to find, we decided to buy land and build. With the collaboration of several architects, we designed our dream vacation home on a double sized lot on Litibu Beach.
We wanted the indoor areas and outdoor areas to flow together, so we designed 27 feet of accordion glass and screen doors that open to the poolside. We also wanted a large covered area next to the pool so that we would be able to relax poolside and not have to be in the sun the entire day. Screens and air conditioning in each bedroom was a must. When we designed the infinity pool we made it an, “adult pool”, which means, you can stand anywhere and talk with friends. We decided on the depth, 4 feet 9 inches, based on my wife’s medium height. Then we made an underwater bench so you can sit in the water at the pool’s edge with a cocktail in hand.
We knew that one of the things our friends and guests might worry about in Mexico is the water quality. To put that issue to rest, we installed a state-of-the-art water purification system and water softener. Still, just for peace of mind and convenience, we have a bottled water dispenser with hot and cold choices.
We designed and built Quinta Christileen to be our second home, not a vacation rental. We then realized that our busy lives would not allow us to spend as much time in beautiful Mexico as we originally planned. Some friends advised us that a second home needs to be occupied and that it is good for a home to be active. That is how we have come to making our home available for others to visit and enjoy.
