    The bathroom shown is awful. Beams on ceilings work when the ceilings are really high. These beams seem to overpower the space.

    Nice view though.

    Needs a bit of minor tweaking but overall I love it - that view!

    Like the location and the quirky garden. The inside is okay but would
    certainly redo various areas.

    Love the kitchen, lots of windows and no upper cabinets. (I'm sure there's plenty of storage without them.)

    i agree.
    it's all too faux antique looking, and i hate the furniture with a passion.

    I love (nearly) all of it, and could move in immediately, but I would need some 'help' so the call would be out for some Javiers, Edourdos, Enriques, etc.

    Of course I would need a couple hundred million $$$ too....


    *I think the ceilings are high enough for those beams, but not high enough for the beams and those heavy dark chandeliers as well-they bring the height down and provide too much of a (lowering) connection between the ceilings and the rest of the room. The one in the bathroom is a good example, and that room does not even have the beams. And I think the room that does have the beams, and no chandelier, looks higher than the others, even though it probably is not. The beams look fine to me in that room.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    I think the pool is too far away from the main house...I would be exhausted having to climb those stairs after hitting the pool. Then again, apparenlty, I'm a lazy ass.

    I love the ocean air coming into the rooms. That's my favorite part!
