Casa Marea (which translates to “the Tide House”) is a multi-generational family residence that sleeps 28 located at the Four Season’s Costa Palmas in La Ribera, Mexico on the Sea of Cortez. Every detail is designed to maximize views of — and a connection to — water. Upon entering Casa Marea, you’re immediately pulled to the sea through an entryway flanked by faceted stone walls that disappear into reflecting pools. Frameless motorized windows make entire walls invisible providing unobstructed views of the water—opening and closing on-demand for a seamless indoor/outdoor experience.
