Casa Marrakech Front Gate

This is a photo of the front gate of  Casa Marrakech, which I have shown during the past week or so.  Like houses in Morocco, behind the front gates there are often charming courtyards, although in Marrakech the courtyards are typically in the center of the houses, not  in the front of the houses.  In a mansion on the beach in Tamarindo, however, it would make no sense to orient a house towards an interior courtyard, as the house should take advantage of the beachfront location exposure, as this house does.

I received an email from a reader in the United Kingdom who said that she attended a wedding here.  The wedding party and guests rented both Casa Marrakech and another of the beachfront mansions.

She added, however, that they no longer allow wedding on the grounds of Casa Marrakech.  Maybe some people got a little careless during wedding reception parties.

I received a phone call yesterday from a Florida gentleman who attended a wedding years ago at one of the beachfront row of houses where Casa Marrakech is located.  He will be returning with his family for his children's first trip out of the USA and rented my Langosta condo for 2 weeks in July.  The children are now ages 9 and 11.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos of on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  This week we are showing photos of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia.  It is a coastal community very different than Tamarindo.

That gate is not as grand as some as the other things you've shown around this place.

Too bad they don't allow weddings any more as this is an elegant setting for one.
