Front of the home

As you approach this 1,000 square foot lot you see there is a set of curved ornate stairs that lead from the parking area to the back door. To your left is the single car garage. We enter into the kitchen and see it has hardwood cabinets and a granite countertop. All the appliances and come with the home - right down to cups, plates and cutlery.





What most visitors first notice is how cool the house feels. This is because it is concrete construction using a system known as M2. Basically the walls are constructed using 8’x4’ reinforced styrofoam panels. These provide excellent insulation value and have a high seismic resistance.

The living room has 2 overhead fans and is divided into a dining and living area.

Passing through the living room we come on to the south facing front patio. This spacious area is where people spend most of their day time. There are cooling breezes both on-shore and off-shore that make living in this part of the tropics most enjoyable.

Passing along the passageway we pass the guest bathroom and enter the ground floor guest bedroom. This has spacious hardwood closets and a large shower and bathroom.

Climbing the stairs we come to the first floor landing. In the front is a south facing bathroom with a bath tub. In the next room is a small balcony. Security bars surround this so you can leave the patio doors open at night to take advantage of the cooling on-shore breezes.



At the back (north side) of the house is the main and second bedroom. Both have ceiling fans. The construction of the house means that you do not need energy guzzling air-conditioning units. Again the use of the M2 insulated panels means that the home is reasonably cool even in the tropical mid-day sun


The master bedroom leads directly onto the mid-level patio. This is an ideal place to sit and relax before turning in. Also from here you get the refreshing off-shore evening and night time breezes.

In 2023 we renovated the upper floor and added a library with big south facing Georgian style windows. An ideal place to sit and read and take it the view of the garden.



From the mid-level patio stairs lead up to the rooftop patio.



The top patio floor is almost 25 feet above the ground and affords peek-a-boo views to the Pacific Ocean. There is little or no light pollution here and this virtual “canopy” location gives you spectacular vistas of the setting and rising suns and breathtaking visions of a tropical night time sky.

This 2011 picture shows how close to the ocean the villa is and unfortunately the jungle has grown up in the meantime.



Rooftop water tank

The roof also accommodates the 300 gallon water tank and the 6 TROJAN solar gel batteries. This is the coolest spot in the home as there is an almost constant breeze, either on or off shore.
