Solstice is a modern work of art perched amid lush gardens and tropical forest looking down to its own private beach. It is furnished primarily with custom-made furniture and original art designed for the house. The three bedroom suites each have a queen bed, private bathroom and private deck. A convertible sofa and day bed provide five beds in total. If you need even more space, remember that you have access to three more bedrooms and a loft in Kaleidoscope as well.

The main level of the house contains the living room, dining room and kitchen. All open to each other under a high vaulted ceiling. The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and kitchen tools you might need as well as basic ingredients like spices, oil, flour and sugar. If you run out of ideas for what to cook, Solstice’s library has a large collection of cookbooks and cooking magazines to inspire you.

Upstairs is the serene master bedroom overlooking the gardens. On the opposite end of the upper level is the media room, which contains a state-of-the-art home theater system including an 8-foot -wide screen. A day bed in the media room is a great place to relax and enjoy the ocean view with a good book and can also be used as an extra bedroom. A convertible sofa adds yet another sleeping option. Upstairs is also home to the "puzzle nook" with a 7-foot high crossword puzzle and other games.

Downstairs is another bedroom suite that overlooks the ocean, jungle and its own garden. Though on a lower level, the views are superb, even from the shower! With its own sitting area, deck, TV/DVD, air conditioning and separate entrance, it is like a private get-away within this private get-away.

Each bedroom also has its own deck where you can enjoy your morning coffee while watching the tropical birds make their daily rounds.
