Oceanside Opulence in a Vacation Villa: Villa Valentina, Miami
Pull your boat up to the dock at Villa Valentina (also known as VillaHotel Valentina) and you’ll know you’ve just arrived at a very special vacation place. This stunning 6-bed and 6-bath villa boasts terrific panoramic views of Miami from almost every point in the house, via expansive walls of glass and ample terraces. Relax at poolside, under the warm Miami sunshine; bask in sunset views over the bay; or spend a quiet evening in the open-plan interior, with its sprawling living and dining areas, graced with one-of-a-kind furnishings and modern art. If you’re stressed, you won’t be for long: imagine curling up on that plush gray curved sectional, within clear view of the waterfront, and doing absolutely nothing. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
You won’t be idle all the time, of course — you’ll want to “play” in the gourmet kitchen, and that infinity pool’s too good to pass up. You can indulge in a steam shower in your en-suite bath; enjoy tunes on the state-of-the-art sound systems (or play them yourselves on the piano), watch a movie on the plasma TV, or gather on the deck for a barbecue. The villa’s security system helps keep you safe, while washers and dryers help keep your clothes looking their best. Should you want to stay in touch with the outside world, wireless Wi-Fi fills the bill — but the deep soaking tubs with their own windows, or the fur throws on the sand-colored living room couch might just persuade you to “unplug” completely — and in this luxurious place, you can do just that.
