Surrounded by a working ranch in the magical resort of Careyes, Aura del Limbo is a Mexico accommodation with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the leafy landscape. During the 1960s, Gian Franco Brignone, an Italian artist and banker, built this bohemian enclave as a haven of inspiration for artists, writers, musicians and other creatives. Today Careyes is an international community that sits on a deserted 200-mile stretch of rugged land on Costalegre between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta. Taking its cues from the simplicity and raw beauty of nature, Aura del Limbo is the perfect illustration of rustic chic. The vacation retreat has six bedrooms and sleeps up to 12 guests.
Aura del Limbo’s burnt-orange exterior envelops a garden-courtyard, anchored by a soothing fountain. The Mexico villa’s expansive 10,764-square-foot interior has a relaxed, uncluttered style achieved with a neutral color palette and other natural elements like warm wood and smooth stone. The design strikes a balance between a rural aesthetic and modern conveniences. The rooms, like the indoor/outdoor living room, are open and airy, stretching seamlessly from one to the next. Sunlight illuminates the spaces as breezes freely flow through this peaceful villa. The dining room is outfitted for a celebration with a round lazy-Susan table surrounded by 12 tanned-leather Equipale chairs. As you dine on freshly caught fish and locally sourced produce, gaze out the giant glass windows for calming views of the plant-covered hills and Pacific Ocean. The spacious, open-plan kitchen features a tall, domed brick ceiling and a center island generous enough for four guests to sit and chat over morning coffee. The professional stainless-steel appliances will delight any cooks in your group, and chef service is available if you’d prefer it.
As the bedrooms are simple and uncluttered, an air of calm and serenity welcome you into the light-filled suites. The decor is restrained, populated with just enough furnishings to make the bedrooms comfortable retreats. White walls provide the backdrop for simple wood furnishings, while the walls behind the beds are painted in colorful hues, drawing the eye to the bedding and pillows, crafted by Mexican artisans. The hand-painted table lamps and hanging bedside lanterns marry modernity with tradition. The rooms have raised brick ceilings and tall glass doors that open to lush greenery and spectacular views. The secluded master suite boasts a private study and spacious bathroom. Four of the remaining five bedrooms off the courtyard feature private bathrooms.
The luxury villa has many charming outdoor spots curl up with a book or sip a cocktail while taking in the natural beauty. Nothing compares to dining alfresco as you look out over a wooded countryside to the ocean beyond. or just relaxing peaceful sanctuary to take in views of the ocean. A giant wood deck jets out above the trees of this vacation villa. After dinner, make your way to the rooftop deck, complete with swimming pool, for a dip under the stars. This vacation villa’s location truly sets it apart from others. Surrounded by trees and countryside, Aura del Limbo feels like a secluded home with no other people for miles, yet it’s a mere 10 minutes from restaurants, galleries and even nightlife. Take a stroll to the adjacent El Polo Club, where the annual Agua Alta polo tournament has been hosted for the past 20 years. The Careyes Resort works to sustain the environment and community; a prime example of this stewardship is the sea turtle sanctuary on pristine Teopa Beach.
