More About Casa Melinda
As you walk through the wrought Iron and hardwood entry into the great room, your eye will be drawn immediately through the giant sliding glass doors, across the deck, and over the infinity pool to the spectacular view. The great room includes the living room, dining room, kitchen and entry. The living room has super comfortable over-sized sofas to relax and converse, while watching the world go by outside. It includes mesquite furniture, blown glass lamps and vases and beautiful Mexican paintings. The massive dining table seats 12 comfortably.

Pass by the cantera columns to the portal to the bedroom suites and observe the beautiful tile mosaic on the floor and the lighted art niche. The master suite features a comfy king bed with excellent linens. You can see the beautiful bay, the infinity pool and the patio while you recline in bed and drink your morning coffee. Don't miss the back-lit art niches. The tile and rain-forest granite master bath is stunning and includes views of the bay while you shower!
