Ceramic tiles

This is photo of some of the ceramic tile alongside the swimming pool at Casa Marrakech.  I would think that it would be hard to find building materials for Islamic architecture in Costa Rica.  The design features of this house are done very well.

I saw a real estate listing for this house a while back.  It was offered for sale for a little less than $5 million.    I don't know how much the maintenance and upkeep are for this property.  I think it is one of those situations that if you have to ask, you can't afford it.

There is a row of beachfront mansions from this house down to our condo building.  Local real estate listings for properties along this part of Langosta Beach call it "Millionaires' Row."  Naturally, being near to very expensive homes helps the property values for condos such as ours, as it helps make Kangosta such a desirable location.

If people have enjoyed my series on this house, I may show some more photos of some of the beachfront houses, if you would like to meet more of the neighbors.

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.

I'm sure this cost a fortune as they no doubt imported those tiles.

It seems I've missed some posts and will have to go back and check them out.

See ya later!

I've always loved mosaic tiling in beautiful colours and these are gorgeous Dave.. There's a house along the coast road not far from me that has a huge ocean/fish themed mosaic mural along it's wall on the roadside, I admire it every time I jog past!

Would love to see more series like this one.

After the mega-millions drawing this weekend, there at least three people who could afford this house.

The tilework is great, of course, but it seems to have just about nothing to do with Costa Rica.
