Sleep in splendor in this African-style hut and its grand canopy bed with black curtains. Gorgeous hardwood floors gleam underfoot, while a thatched ceiling soars overhead. Twin trunks at the foot of the bed provide storage space.
The thatched, vaulted roof recalls traditional beach palapas, but the scale here is ever so much more grand. Saltillo tile floors and simple wood tables make the interior friendly and practical for vacation living.
The sitting room is full of pitch-perfect character for a tropical estate — thatched detail on the ceiling, rattan furniture, botanical cushions and big leaf plants. French doors lead to the lush grounds, perfect for easy indoor-outdoor entertaining.
Another casual dining spot includes a bar area that borders one wall and a ceiling fan to keep the breeze blowing when temperatures climb. Saltillo tile floors and the thatched roof maintain a sense of continuity throughout the rooms of the home.
