The main level “open air” living space is an expansive area with a bar & stools, plenty of seating space, a ping pong table, hammocks, full bath and two hanging matrimonial beds. It is surrounded by the garden which then extends to beach and mountain views. The open air design was carefully planned to maximize the cooling comfort of the ocean breezes and as well as provide the perfect vantage point for our spectacular sunsets without even having to leave your hammock.
Casa Carolina was built “off the grid” using solar power. We now have a connection to local electricity as a backup as well. We have Satellite high speed internet and cell phone service, and a surround sound home theatre system.
At 900 square feet, our above ground infinity pool is the largest in the Troncones area. It is 8 1/2 feet deep with a diving rock waterfall and a beautiful view of the beach and mountains. We have a small collection of pool accessories as well as 2 boogie boards and a beach chair for use on the beach.
On the top level our home, there is a 185 square foot uncovered yoga platform with a gorgeous inlaid mosaic compass floor. It is ideal for sunrise and sunset yoga practice and can comfortably fit 4-5 students. We have several yoga mats at the house for your use.
