Tropaco Point, north side - 4 bedroom villa
This popular north side property provides the drama of endless ocean views from its spectacular cliffside spot. Built on three levels overlooking a rocky cove with whispering surf, Casa Bella is superbly executed with architectural interest and a pleasing floorplan, is fully air-conditioned, and the interiors have just been completely refurbished. A moongate ushers you into a garden courtyard leading to the handsome exotic-wood entrance door. Casa Bella's main level offers the Great Room done in an inviting island-ethnic theme, with warm cypress ceilings and arches sharing space with the dining area and spacious kitchen; glass sliding doors open to a balcony and alfresco dining patio overlooking Magens Bay and the blue sea.
The Great Room is a great gathering spot to watch movies on the 42-inch plasma cable TV. The romantic king master suite and walk-in closet adjoins the blue two-twin (or 1 king) bedroom via a connecting door, perfect for smaller children who must be close to parents. Another door leads from the master bath to the kitchen area so it also serves as a convenient powder room. An L-shaped interior staircase descends to Casa Bellas lower level to a very private king (or two-twin) bedroom/bath suite, done in red and offering its own balcony overlooking the rocky coastline.
Adjacent on this level is the fourth bedroom, a second king (or two-twin) master suite with its own sitting room with a private nook with a daybed overlooking the ocean vista, a quiet and private place for a nap or reading. Casa Bella's interiors are lovely, romantic and relaxing, stylishly enhanced by creative color schemes and accessories. On each level is a scenic balcony; both access a staircase down to the seaside sun deck, pool and cabana. The poolside cabana offers a bar with a mini-fridge and CD player. Breezy tradewinds, surf sounds to relax you, pelicans cruising by, and quiet privacy abound at gracious Casa Bella.

As of fall 2007, please note that there is a construction site next door to Casa Bella, BUT the owner of Casa Bella is doing the building (another home), and will NOT do any construction activity on his new house when he has guests staying at Casa Bella. However, this site can be seen from Casa Bella's upper balcony and from the pool areas.
