I was lucky enough to watch two people I adore get married, but to watch them get married at this house? Well, I am still convinced it was all a dream. A wonderful, wonderful dream.

I knew the Casa would be amazing, but I don't think I could think wildly enough to imagine what we saw. We first saw the house for the pre-wedding cocktail party. It was just about 5PM when we arrived and the sun was shining on this amazing house. The initial reactions all around were "pools!" and "no walls" and "wow"!

The house is beautifully planned around the Palapa, which is an open-sided structure. Think gazebo in the middle of a home. The palapa was surrounded by very tempting swimming pools and lead into the grassy back of the home which overlooked the ocean. The ocean background was so spectacular, but often played second fiddle to this amazing home.

We got the grand tour which consisted of beautiful and tasteful bedrooms, an awesome media room, wine cellar and rooftop deck. The deck offered views that took your breathe away.

My favorite part of the home was actually the two front houses that you passed upon entry. They consisted of a guest house and game room. Each had an adjoining pool with volleyball nets and a rock wall to jump of off. I could have stayed in those pools all day.

I can't write this review without mentioning the staff. They were incredible. Kind and helpful, I wanted to hug them (but I didn't want them to be scared by the creepy guest). Service can make or break even a place as beautiful as this and they just made it that much better. I got to briefly chat with the house manager who obviously took so much pride in his job and the home. The owners are lucky to have him.

Since  no words can adequately describe this house, I will leave you with my favorite quotes about the home:

"Now I know what it feels like to be Jennifer Aniston" - The Bride's Mom
"I don't want to go back to the Four Seasons!!"- Fellow Guest as we shuttled back to our hotel


I uploaded some of my favorite photos of the house- I feel so blessed to have experienced this beautiful house for such a great event!

This was a once in a lifetime experience for me and my family so we decided to go REALLY big for it and the location, Casa Siete, was a huge part of it.  We just got back last night and has such an amazing time!!       We just had our wedding at Casa Siete on Aug 21, 2010.  When we planned our wedding we wanted it to be a family vacation and we wanted everyone to be in together under one roof.  With 25 people (including infants) that required a BIG place.  …

Surpassed my Expectations!
I have been home from my recent stay at Casa Siete for one week now and I can honestly say that I can't stop thinking about it. Not only was it the most beautiful wedding of my cousin J.R. and his bride Susan, but it was the best family vacation anyone could ask for. The experience was a once in a lifetime trip and it wowed me from the second we landed at the airport.      Casa Siete is a little slice of heaven. The infinity swimming pools that look out …

Wiki

Casa Siete (or Casa 7) is one of only 5 houses in the development named El Banco just south of the city of Punta Mita Mexico.  The house was named Casa Siete because the family who owns it has 7 people in their family.

The house has full time staff of 7 people and full staff of 14.  Jaime Patino is the general manager of the house.

When the family who owns the house isn't staying there, it's available for rent.  The brokers who handle is Rejane Narbonnet at La Punta Realty.  She can be reached at rejane@lapuntarealty.com.

From the La Punta Realty website about the property:
http://www.lapuntarealty.com/casa7/

Casa Siete in an achievement in lifestyle design, a study in family vacation bliss and a symphony of refined Pacific Mexican architecture.

On a 35 ft. cliff over looking the Marietas Islands and Punta de Mita within the luxury resort development called El Banco, Casa Siete is
one of the finest new homes in all of Mexico.

Spread across most of the massive estate, this 8 bedroom villa is
25,000 sq ft under roof and another 25,000sq ft of paths, pools, and
out door living areas. With nearly 1,000,000 cubic feet of volume,
Casa Siete draws you to water and sun.
