Drive way is complete! Plaster is 95% complete and the Reclaimed Chicago Pavers and travertine are being laid!

Well we ar definately in the home stretch.  The past few weeks have trnsformed this villa from a "concrete structure with a view" to an "absolutely gorgeous Pool Villa with a view".  This is a view we really have not shared until now.  All of the concrete is complete. AMEN!!!!!!!!!!   Even Denise was in for the finishing touches after a long day cutting our Reclaimed Chicago Brick Pavers in half for the Lanai/Veranda and the pool patio.  We have one of the few "flat" driveways on the entire island.  Couple that with only 2 steps to get into the villa, we are truley unique.

The men on the job get a kick out of Denise pitching in and getting dirty!

This happens to be a "before" shot of the driveway. Major transformation.

We are so lucky to be in prestigous Point Rendezvous and have fabulous 270 degree views.  We enjoy beautiful sunrises AND...

beautiful sunsets as well!!!!

So enough of the scnery shots...Denise included.  Since the last post we have virtually completed all of our colored plaster work.  It has turned out beautiful.  This is the great room looking towards the stairs.

The outside plaster really makes the villa "pop" 

This is a view from the nieghbors villa.  Notice you can see the ocean through the outdoor shower.

Below is a picture from the inside of the pool looking at the Lanai/Veranda

Once the plaster was completed we immediately started laying the Reclaimed Chicago Brick Pavers on the Lanai/Veranda.  The ocean is off to the left in this picture.

The picture above is a view out of one of the 5 - 10ft tall French doors in the Living/Dining area.
 Here is a better picture of the Lanai/Veranda.  You can actually see the textured finish we used on the entire villa.  
We also started the finishing touches on our three 11X5 balconies that compliment each Master Suite.  Its pretty awesome how we designed these outdoor areas to be "suspended" in mid air.

We have also begun the finishing touches inside.  We started laying our rustic travertine in a "French" pattern.  This is one of the 3 Master en Suite bathrooms.  The door is the entry to the private out door shower.

This picture is one of the 3 Master Suites.  This room is also complete.  Grout ,put door on hinges, hang a cieling fan and then add furniture.  We could not be any happier wuth our finishing selections. Below is a picture of the Great Room.  This was taken in the late afternoon and it depicts how bright and airy Caribbean Palm is all day long.

Over the next few days we should be wrapping up the tile work on the lower level and then moving up to this main level.  Its so exciting!

While all of the above is going on we have also started laying the stone retaining wall that leads you graciously to the entrance.  The walls are first constructed out of native stone, Chicago Reclaimed Brick Pavers, conch shells and coral.   Once complete, th joints are tuckpointed with smaller shells.  It isan awesome look.  Trust me.  Next time we post we should be almost done with the stone work
