Villa number 8 is a very spacious 3BR/3BA penthouse unit spread out over 3 floors (floors 2, 3, and 4 of the building). The master bedroom and 2nd bedroom are located on the lower level along with their own private bathrooms. The floorplan of the master bedroom is unique (circular) and spacious. It has double french doors leading out to an extensive private terrace that overlooks the tropical courtyard. A marble covered kitchenette wraps around one wall under a large bank of windows, providing the option of a cozy breakfast in bed. The oversized, marble jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom is great for a late night soak.
The second level contains the 3rd bedroom, 3rd bathroom, kitchen, and living room. The kitchen is very nicely equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances imported from the US. In addition to the main appliances, you will find the cabinets well stocked with dishes, blenders, and the like.
The living room is circular shaped (like the master bedroom below) and covered with a dramatic one-and-a-half story teepee shaped grass thatch palapa roof. Don't be fooled -- it is very strong (withstood a direct hit category 5 hurricane) and very chic. A cozy loft extends out about a third of the way over the living room. Like the master bedroom below, there are double french doors leading out to an extensive terrace overlooking the central courtyard and pool.
On the rooftop level, you will find another large terrace. As with the two terraces on the lower floors, this terrace is equipped with good quality teak patio furniture.
After a late night of carousing, you may find it relaxing to settle in with a nice movie. Unit 8 has just updated all 3 of its TV/video-player combos in 2012 with new technology. This means large LED-LCD Vizio flat screen TVs and Samsung blue-ray players, all of them brought down from the US (English menuing!) and internet connected. The Living Room has a 47" flat screen while the two downstairs bedrooms have 37" flat screens. We've set up an international Netflix account for use at the condo so you'll have full access to their library on all 3 TVs. At this writing, the other video services (Amazon, Hulu, etc) do not yet have international offerings. We also have a library of 100+ DVDs in the unit for your viewing pleasure.
Another special feature of this villa is the extensive data wiring put in during construction. Cat5 (internet) wiring is extensive throughout, with 3 or 4 data outlets in every room. Just plug your laptop in wherever it suits you or else connect to unit eight's own private wireless network. Leave your laptop at home if you like and use the PC that is provided in the living room. A voice-over-IP telephony system that operates over the high speed internet connection is also in place. The computer and internet services are provided free of charge on an "as available" basis (meaning if there is a malfunction with equipment or service I'm sorry...but the history is that it's been pretty reliable). This includes free long distance calling to the US and Canada over the voice-over-IP system.
