Item description for Houses by the Sea: Mexico's Pacific Coast by Mauricio Martinez...
Some of the worlds most beautiful houses grace the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Houses by the Sea is as colorful, creative, and inspiring as the homes themselves. The photography, by Rigoberto Moreno, is so vibrant and crisp that each page seems like a window onto these stunning homes and their lush surroundings.
Each section of the book highlights one of these unique homes and describes the architects particular challenges and constraints in building it, from unusual owner requests to difficult cliffside terrain. Many of the projects employed indigenous materials or traditional designs, and these are also described, along with some landscaping and interior design features.

These houses are sick! Nov 9, 2003
I went and visited at one of these houses. It was the most amazing place I had ever been. I recommend anyone to go there. It is heaven and the area is great not yet insanely americanized like Cancun. 5000 a night to rent these places check it out.
A Gorgeous Book of Dream Houses Jul 17, 2003
This book was enough to start me dreaming of retiring to Mexico--or maybe just taking a looong vacation there! The photographs are stunning--really incredible. I also enjoyed the writing style in the sections where they discuss the goals for each house and the owners and architects input toward the whole project.
