Casa Nautilus, the very name evoking exotic mystique, received international attention and prestige by being selected as the cover property for both the August 2003 and October 2003 Spanish language edition of Architectural Digest. In the January 2004 AD 100 issue, architect Alex Pössenbacher was selected as one of the world’s top 100 architects and designers, with Casa Nautilus featured as the example of his work.

Situated in the exclusive and world-renowned coastal resort of Costa Careyes on Mexico’s Pacific coast, this extraordinary property harmoniously blends the earth elements with a marine horizon. The “low salt” infinity pool and jacuzzi by day enhance the Pacific Ocean and coastline vista with complementary shades of blue, while dramatically changing to an electric blue form dominating the black night sky.

The main house provides 4 bedroom suites, each with vividly colored walls, vast ocean views, and entrances to the extensive tropical gardens. A massive “Careyes style” palapa roof covers the combined living/dining and bar area, a place where the constant sensual stimulation and environment of relaxed sophistication achieves harmony and balance. The property also includes a separate two bedroom staff quarters.

Casa Nautilus is a dreamy retreat that envelopes all who enter within, like the nautilus shell for which it was named.
