An exotic shell of a home...

Warm , crystal clear water, Vibrant tropical colors welcome us to the....

Bay of Careyes in Jalisco Mexico.

This home designed by architect Alex Pössenbacher

is named Casa Nautilus...a perfect name



You wind yourself into the cocoon as you enter

A gorgeous palapa roof is worn like a crown above the living areas...

And those vibrant colors! Color with abandon...
Here is the cocoon part!

So go ahead....Head down to Mexico
It's like giving yourself a warm hug.
Yep. You deserve it!
You'll have to find your own shell, however...
This one is sold.
Dayum!

Yes, the name is perfect for this retreat. Kind of reminds me of that snail house from the original "Dr. Doolittle" that Rex Harrison starred in. :-)

How in the world do you even find these great places?! You need to mix it up sometime and show some outrageously heinous pictures and say, "Aren't you just glad you're not here?" :)

Gorgeous, Linda! I've never been to Mexico, but I have an uncle who goes every winter--and he's a Floridian! Apparently it's cooler there? I bet it's cooler at THAT place!!

Stop on my Serendipity for my 100th post giveaway this week!

I was thinking the same thing Sandra was thinking- Dr. Doolittle.

That view is heaven. I'm sending this to my mom.

Linda, those British stencils were $900 for the pack and far too much money for me to blow on a crafty project that we all know will turn out looking like crap :( I'm so not crafty.

I think I can hire someone for less than $900. I think.

Yes!! The snail house in Dr. Doolittle! I knew I had some sort of faint recollection of it!

Ha! Chris...OK...You're on!

Yeah, Sharon...Mexico can be quite arid in places. I'd go every year if I could, too! There are sooo many great places and states to explore there!

Ms. Tee...Race ya!

Karin...Ah, I see...yep, a bit steep!
