beach decor

by Stefanie Hauer

An easy way to incorporate relaxation into your lifestyle is by decorating your home with relaxing, Zen-like decor. Zen is a spiritual practice derived from Buddhism that originated in China during the Tang Dynasty. Zen can also describes a state of mind or even a peaceful place and is most often associated with Yoga and Meditation. Pairing Coastal colors with Zen inspired accessories is the perfect combination for creating a Zen Coastal Retreat right at home. Doesn’t that sound dreamy?! Start by adding natural elements that induce a “retreat” or “peaceful getaway” feel. Think large swaying plants, sounds of distant waves crashing or a trickling water feature, smells of tropical plants and tall bamboo reaching towards the ceiling- all create the perfect backdrop for an at home retreat experience. Immerse yourself in the senses and think about what you hear and smell when you take the time to close your eyes and relax in your space. This is also the perfect time to take the opportunity to observe your breath and observe your mind, two of the majors practices of Zen. Zen, Yoga and Meditation are popular worldwide because


This brings us to another important factor in such a decorating style- incorporating key elements that pay tribute to some of the ideals of Zen. Without these elements, others may not recognize that you are creating a “Zen” inspired beach retreat. Small figurines of an Elephant, Buddha, and even a tabletop Zen Garden are all small ways to add Zen appeal and also make your design inspiration very clear. Add throw pillows, candle holders, throw blankets and other accessories in vibrant coastal colors. Bring the relaxation of the ocean into your space with color. Make sure to find a few pillows in outdoor fabrics that you can have on the floor for overflow seating or most importantly, when you want to get your Zen mindset flowing. Hit the Yoga mat and let your stresses melt away as you dive deep into a Yoga practice, or relax and unwind with friends and family. If Yoga and Meditation are something you have wanted to try, leave an open space in your design so you can easily roll out your mat or sit on a comfy pillow and take time for meditation. An amazing way to create undeniable ambiance is to find several candle holders in differing heights and fill with a bit of sand and group together in 3’s. Place groups around the room and enjoy the most peaceful setting at dusk with all of the candles lit. You may have guests that never want to leave! Once you have combined natural elements, hints of Zen Tradition, comfortable coastal colored seating, romantic and relaxing ambiance, you may find

yourself in a state of Nirvana with the blissful feelings you get from relaxing in this space daily. Creating an at home retreat will be one of the best investments you’ve made in your home, because you will have a place you look forward to being in and associate with relaxing and recharging. Your own little slice of paradise right at home. *



VILLA DANZANTE Designed by award winning architect Kevin B. Howard, these luxury villas personify modern Baja Style. Each distinct model seamlessly combines stunning interior and exterior views with enviable seclusion and privacy, in an environment of tasteful luxury. The views and surroundings are central elements of the house and the finishes utilized are natural textures to please your senses. Every corner of the house exudes the natural beauty and quietude of its location. Just like the aquamarine waters of the Sea of Cortez and rugged golf course it sits among, this home is a unique blend of strong simple forms and placid spaciousness. “Soft Modern� best describes the overall feel for the interior. It offers uncompromised luxuries while equating the tranquility of its locale. Lighter woods and subtle curves will introduce softness to the contemporary as well as the introduction of live-edge casegoods and natural fibers. The Danzante Bay development is nestled in the oceanside mountains of Loreto, Baja California Sur. Unique in its diversity, the property encompasses three distinct characteristics, moving from cliff, to beach, to canyon landscapes. The Marine Park in which Danzante Bay is located includes the five islands of Loreto: Danzante, Del Carmen, Montserrat, Santa Catalina, and Coronado, which sit majestically in front or the property. The residences and resort at Danzante Bay are 100% sustained by their own water supply on the property, along with a grey water recycling system that feeds the golf course and three desalination plants. Amenities include a world-class golf course and plans for a luxurious beach club. The golf course designed by Rees Jones is a brilliant multi-themed course accented by valleys, arroyos, dunes and foothills. The unique course features panoramic views of Danzante Bay, the Sea of Cortes, the Islands of Loreto and the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. The beach club will include thirty moorings available for rental, a business center, a restaurant, game room, tennis, basketball, and a lap pool, among other amenities. If a home nestled among islands, a world-class golf course, desert canyons and mountains sounds appealing to you, then the serenity of Villa Danzante is for you.

Quivira Los Cabos by Justine Schock, REmexico Real Estate Agent, Justine@CaboRealEstate.com

magine waking up to the sound of crashing waves and looking out your window to sweeping ocean and golf course views. This dream can be a reality at Quivira Los Cabos! Quivira is an 1,850-acre master-planned community on the Pacific Ocean side of the Baja peninsula, about 10 minutes north of downtown Cabo San Lucas. Quivira is known for its Jack Nicklaus designed golf course and three-mile stretch of untouched beaches. One of the great things about Quivira is that they have four distinct neighborhoods at different price points, which makes living the Cabo dream achievable for everyone. They even offer attractive financing programs and pricing incentives, which can be hard to find in Mexico. Quivira is currently selling homes in Mavila, Copala, Coronado and Montecristo. Mavila is the newest addition to the Quivira family, and the most budget friendly with preconstruction homes starting at $190,000usd. The new “pueblito” style home concept will offer owners condos that look more like townhomes than traditional condominiums. “The central “village” is comprised of two- and three-story buildings which have single level one-, two-, or three-bedroom condos. The more privileged top floor condos have an included roof-top terrace. The buildings are distributed around three community pools and are connected via winding footpaths that lace through fountain-studded courtyards. Along the fairway are threebedroom two-story single-family homes, and the next phase will introduce a handful of towers with two- and three-bedroom condos,” explains Ryan Winegar, Sales Manager at Quivira. Next up is Copala; a mix of two- and three-bedroom condominiums and four- and fivebedroom single-family residences. Owners interested in the residence portion of Copala can choose between seven different floor plans, ranging from 1,800 to 2,400 square feet. “The entire community sits up high in the center of Quivira looking down over the Pacific Ocean” describes Winegar. Owners have access to the 38,000-square foot Copala Clubhouse, which includes a stunning pool, massage rooms, movie theater, deli, gym, meeting rooms and more. The views from Copala are absolutely breathtaking! Coronado is my probably my favorite of Quivira’s offerings, an exclusive community designed for 64 single level villas. Each three-, four- or five-bedroom villa features expansive terraces with unobstructed ocean views. Owners can choose from a wide variety of finishes to customize their home and truly make it their own. I love the old-world hacienda style of Coronado, and the contrast between wood beamed ceilings, high end appliances, granite, marble and stone. Each home comes with its own custom designed family crest at the entryway. Its special touches like these that make Coronado a one of a kind place to live! Last, but certainly not least, are The Private Residences at Montecristo, featuring 18 luxury Tuscan-style homes. Winegar explains, “Montecristo is a small private section of hillside homes with its own entrance and security but with access to hotel amenities. The threebedroom two-level homes are fully furnished, turn-key and enjoy both service from and access to the amenities of the Montecristo Clubhouse and the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Hotel.” Homes in Montecristo include an infinity pool, jacuzzi, large terraces, and spacious design. Both Coronado and Montecristo start in the upper million-dollar range. All owners at Quivira have access to the Quivira Golf Club and many other first-class amenities including restaurants, gyms, award winning spas, and optional golf club and private yacht club memberships. And the new toll road from the San Jose International Airport makes getting there easier than before. No matter what neighborhood you choose, you can’t go wrong with a home in Quivira Los Cabos!
