Casa El Norte @ Galu Beach
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa El Norte is an exquisite villa with uninterrupted access to one of the most unspoiled stretches of powder white sandy beach and turquoise ocean in the world. Its unrivaled idyllic location and tranquility make Casa El Norte the perfect getaway. The Casa is designed in an open plan layout amid 3 acres of indigenous coastal forest, opening towards the beach through roll-back French windows.
A large wrap around veranda with access from the living room, dining room, and down stairs bedroom gives you a full view and the constant presence of the beach and ocean. The ocean facing living room invites plenty of sunlight and atmosphere. Beautiful yet simple local furniture and pieces of art give the spacious room warmth and character. Listening to the waves while sipping a cup of famous local spice tea can be the most relaxing and invigorating past time of the holiday.
Casa El Norte has 4 spacious rooms, with 3 bathrooms and an extra guest toilet. Two of the three upstairs bedrooms open up to a large sun deck. The Colobus bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. This room opens up onto the sun deck with panoramic views of the ocean and allows for romantic star gazing. The Gecko bedroom is ocean-facing, and is connected to the sun deck, which allows for private sunbathing sessions and out-door cocktails. The Starfish bedroom comes with large windows that allow lots of sunlight and swirling ocean air with calming views of the garden. The Baobab bedroom has an en-suite bathroom; this room has direct access to the beach, which allows for cool afternoon naps with the sound of the ocean lulling you to sleep.
