Key selling points: Local artwork adorns this bi-level suite whose furnished terrace looks out to sand and sea.An inviting living and dining space, dressed in creams, dark woods, and burnt orange, touts beamed ceilings that vault skyward, while a full chef’s kitchen makes oceanfront fetes a breeze. In the master bath, the shower opens onto a secluded terrace for a refreshing outdoor experience.
Standout service: For a family particularly fascinated by the indigenous turtles, staff arranged a nighttime beach viewing of the baby turtles hatching and crawling to the ocean.
