Now that we're back from our winter holiday, I've had a chance to review some of the photos from our trip and I've realized two things: Casa de Campo is an exceptionally beautiful Caribbean resort and I dislike coming home from a fun vacation. Of course we had to come home, at least that's what I repeatedly told my daughter as we both dragged our heels through the sand our last day. While I spent an exceptionally large amount of time at the beach (for someone who claims she doesn't like the sun), I also made sure I made my way around the nearly 15,000 acres of tropical paradise and experienced some incredible island architecture and design. While there were far too many chic casas for me to share, here's a bird's-eye view of a few of my favorites-
This estate is simply spectacular-it features a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the ocean and a private beach. There are several smaller casitas which surround the main house, perfect for guests.
I'm smitten with the estate's elegant neutral palette-soft whites and beiges allow the gorgeous ocean to be the star of the show.
Look at the view!
White louvered doors are so light and airy-a modern take on the traditional dark wood thats typical on the island.
Most of the bedrooms have direct ocean access-perfect for a morning swim.
And this impressive estate which features a traditional island thatched roof and a stunning oceanfront location.
An enormous gazebo with several seating areas, perfect for entertaining.
I love the use of color in this home-sunny terracotta on the gazebo and ocean blue in another outdoor seating area.
The thatched roof brings a rustic island touch to the decor.
Wishing you a wonderful day and a great start to the New Year!
