C204 Las Mañanitas | Los Cabos
World renowned for its unparalleled beauty and magnificent luxury, even in Los Cabos there is a slight change when it comes to true luxe. Situated at one of the top places in this paradise, is Las Mañanitas. The famous condominium complex is situated at the beachfront of the Tourist Corridor, and is indeed a masterpiece of design. Inside, in the second floor, there is a place that stands above it all.
The golden door and gold numbers announce the arrival at this piece of heaven. As it unfolds, to the left lays the kitchen, and directly in front are the dinner and living room. Beyond, sliding glass doors open to a sight that cannot be found anywhere else.
First off, the kitchen. Crème colored tiles fill the countertop and backsplash against the wall, leading the way until the large, over-the-range cabinets of dark, heavy wood cut in its way. Orange crosses line up along the counter, carefully painted in the tiles, as centinels guarding a keep. White appliances fully equip this room, and the dark wood of the cabinets underneath achieve the enhancing of the tiles and the floor, which glows in red pieces that remind of the age-old Haciendas.
Next is the Dinner.
King Arthur’s round table seems to have been the inspiration. The six leathery chairs surround the plate of the dinner, carefully placed underneath a chandelier suspended from heavy chains. Iron rivets hold the leather in place.
To the left, a carved fitment of wood with roses painted on its surface sits underneath the orbiting mirror above, made from wood, which seems to be a circle of mangrove.
The living room consists of a three piece couch and two individual couches in white dress, facing a magnificent wooden coffee table in rustic wood and a high-gloss finish. Next to the wall, a large entertainment center in wonderful antique finishing supports a large flat-screen TV, becoming the epitome of eclectic design.
A turn to the right shows the way to the Second Master Bedroom. In here, two massive headrests in rustic wood crown the Queen Size beds that nest inside this paradise. A nightstand separates them both, holding hands with both Queens, and procuring an iron light that sheds luminescence in between. Wonderful fitments of rough woods decorate the room, and a painting seems to be more of a window than oil, showcasing the life that is treasured in this side of the world. In the back, hidden away from the windows and the sun, a closet shies away behind mirror doors. Past an arch, still inside, a private bathroom opens. As you open the door, wooden racks hold towels and cloths. A double sink guarded by a one-piece mirror, is held up by wonderful, luxurious wooden cabinets, and covered by artisan tiles, both clear and decorated. The hand-painted sinks hold wonderful details in their inside. The shower seems like a separate room, hidden away by walls and glass blocks, finishes in a tiled bench and a small window that faces the pool and ocean, which can only be opened from the inside of the shower.
On the other side, the Master Bedroom waits gallantly. In here, a massive King size bed with its wonderful headrest and footrest in wood and iron rivets, carefully decorated with wonderful patterns, basks in the sun. The dark wood seems to make the white linens shine with glee. The side nightstand matches the bed’s woods. A red dress covers a lounge chair by the sliding glass door, which faces a wonderful palm tree, carefully painted in oils. A brilliant entertainment center, combined with drawers and cabinets, shines in its polished black woods and intricate patterns.
A hallway holds the double sinks and large mirror, and behind, sliding mirrors hide away the closet. An arch becomes the entrance to the bathroom, and seems to be the entrance to a surreal fairytale. On the right, a white tub is lined by artisan tiles that enlighten the age of the Haciendas. On the left, a shower is shielded away by tiles and glass blocks.
A hallway leads the way to the back of the home. A first door appears just inches into the corridor. In here, a fully equipped laundry room is hidden from sight.
The next door opens into the guest bathroom. In here, a single sink dressed in the same manner as the others, in artisan tiles and hand-painted bowls, sits peacefully in a dark cabinet made from wood. The shower is shielded by a half-wall of bricks and tiles, and a stair-shaped wall of glass blocks. Another door inside the bathroom connects with the guest bedroom, which can also be accessed by the last door in the long corridor. In here, twin beds share the space, separated only by a natural colored, wooden nightstand. Their white linens match the walls, and the long, dignified wooden headrests cause wonderful illusions of grandeur. A beautifully printed single couch sits by the corner, and a small office/vanity desk shies inside a dent of the wall, next to the closet – hidden by mirror doors -.
There is one more room, and as must be done, the best has been saved for last. The Terrace.
In here, wonderful small arches create a barrier between the home and the air. A green, three person couch sits gazing at the horizon. Wonderfully printed individual couches, in the Hacienda style, face the never-ending movement of the waves. Magnificent marble tables sit in the terrace, along with iron work chairs that create a small dinner in the deck. But the view, however, is something that you will not forget. Green palm trees and emerald grass crash against the magnificent blue pools, and on the back the sea fuses into the horizon and then into the sky, which becomes a multicolored orb at dawn and a red entity at dusk. Every day a new show is performed, and in Los Cabos, you will have all the time to become mesmerized by it. So welcome home to this land where dreams come true, and many happy returns.
