House of the Day: Bringing Home the Exotic Tropics
You can't always escape on exotic getaways to Puerto Rico or Cabo San Lucas, but if you lived in this dazzling waterfront home you'd never need to.
This stunningly colorful and luxurious $6.875 million home in Naples, Fla., is like a tropical resort, but better. Nestled in the exclusive Port Royal subdivision by the sparkling turquoise waters of Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast, the coral-colored mansion is flanked by lush palm trees and bodies of water (where you can yacht, fish, Jet Ski and swim to your heart's content). The 6,407-square-foot home also boasts soaring ceilings, an oversized gourmet kitchen, a 3,000-bottle wine cellar and a glass-tiled pool with 21-jet spa.
Why do we love this home? It's not your typical, vanilla-colored Miami McMansion. Each of its four massive bedrooms boasts a playful, vibrant color scheme that gives the sprawling manse a warmth and character that many traditional luxury homes lack. (We're talking bright red, yellow and green walls, with bold, tropical decor that almost borders on chintzy, but not quite.) Plus, there's a gorgeous Honolulu-esque lanai on which you can lazily perch, Mai Tai in hand, while you take in the lush Port Royal landscape and serene waterfront views. Who needs Cabo?
