Live out your mermaid dreams in this real life Seashell House, one of Mexico’s proudest residential architectural designs. This 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom estate is in a gated community in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, perfectly hidden away from the main tourist sites of the island and a short 15 minute golf cart ride to the beach. The home consists of 2 adjacent buildings each housing a master bedroom with a king sized bed.
The larger shell has 2 floors with a living room, kitchenette and glass doors leading out to the pool area on the main floor. The living room has a semicircular lounge area which is perfect for cooling off in the air conditioning. Up a winding staircase there is a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the pool. The smaller shell has a large bedroom with a tiled bathroom made out of, you guessed it, seashells.
As a matter of fact, almost every detail of the house is made out of seashells. The mirrors are lined with shells, the sink is a large seashell, even the tabletop is held up by large shells. This home is one of a kind! Know before you go: house guests are not the only people who recognize and appreciate the beauty of this house, so don’t be surprised to find tourists taking pictures of the home while you’re lounging by the pool.
