Tigre del Mar is the grandest of the Ocean Castles in Costa Careyes. An architectural revelation, the property features panoramic ocean views and is comprised of three completely separate structures on the same property: The Tower, The Main Living - Dining Palapa and Casa del Tres Mil (the house of 3,000). The property has two swimming pools: one which is paved in tiles that absorb the sun of the day to glow incandescent in the night. In addition, the property boasts its own pristine private beach and a subterranean grotto.
The Tower features six bedroom suites wound around a grand central spiraling staircase, private sun and star gazing terraces on each level and panoramic views of the sea from each bedroom suite and terrace.
The Main Living - Dining Palapa features a massive ocean-view upper dining and a lower living area. A monumental traditional Mexican Palapa extends over the entire structure. Constructed by local artisans out of timber and ‘Palma de la Mano’ (hand shaped leaves), its seeming aesthetic simplicity belies the extraordinary craft required to create it.
Casa del Tres Mil (the house of 3,000) has two bedroom suites, a screening room with floor to ceiling library. Each bedroom suite is the mirror of the other and situated on opposite sides of the building. They feature beds perched upon ‘princess and the pea’ staircases with panoramic views of the ocean and the jungle. Outside the building, a giant wooden ladder extends from the base of the building to far beyond its roof and into the sky above it. At its top, sits a bottle of tequila to welcome inhabitants from other worlds. Independent artist studio available upon request.
The whole property echoes the form of the bow of a ship looking out to sea, a design idea that was posited by Italian architect Alberto Mazzoni, who alongside Barragán, Marco Aldaco, Diego Villaseñor, and Jean-Claude Galibert, worked with the Brignone family to develop the ‘Costa Careyes’ architectural style. The concepts behind Tigre del Mar are central to the ‘Careyes Style’: indigenous ways of approaching architecture; framing the views like paintings; and the idea of a ‘disintegrated property’.
