Completed in Nov 2011, this unique and beautiful three-bedroom, three-bath home hosts a bedroom and bath on each of it’s three levels with two large fully equipped kitchens on the lower and second levels. Each level is unique; with it’s own style and feel. This home, the house of earth and sky is just that.

The larger ground floor sits right at beach level with the white sands just a few steps out your door. This level is of the earth with a grounded, cozy, private and protected feeling.

The earth level Lu’um is the most spacious of the three levels and the ground level offers a table for four where you can enjoy your morning coffee or dining al fresco for four.

A large kitchen and rounded granite bar, a raised separate bedroom area under a custom brick ceiling, and the rounded full windowed dining room are some of the special features of this floor. A queen futon in the sitting area can become a bed for one or two little ones, and the outside covered decks on either side of the dining room are a wonderful place to hang out with your morning coffee and watch the sunrise. This is a great unit for couples or a small family and is at beach level.

The rounded indoor dining area is elegant with windows framing the views of the beach and waters edge.

Then, up the rounded exterior staircase the feeling begins to change. Going up the stairs in the tower the open windows offer vistas over the mangroves to the back of the property.

The light increases as the open floor plan allows the air to move freely throughout the space, and the sky comes into view from the second floor deck.

Ka’an consists of the second and third levels of this special home. A large, full kitchen with a granite breakfast bar, a separated raised bedroom with king bed, and built in shelving borders the sitting area and helps to create a feeling of openness in this light and airy space. The spacious outside covered terrace and teak dining set is a great place for meals or just hanging out. The wind from the ocean gently blows through the wooden louvered shutters to create a cool oasis.

Looking out onto the dining porch of Ka’an, stained glass windows glow with blues and greens of the sky and water. Here the elements strengthen and become a larger part of your experience, along with the outside dining and a large open kitchen with granite bar.

The third level of this home is the gem. We call this smaller bedroom surrounded by deck “The Love Nest”. A raised queen bed, a luxurious bathroom and mahogany arched windows frame the shades of the blue Caribbean and make this the most romantic room of the home.

Here it is hard to tell where the sea ends and the sky begins. Through the arched doors and on the deck is a BBQ area, a sink and small fridge as well as a small table to hang out and enjoy the views. Here you will feel as if you are on top of the world.
