Ray and Stephanie fell in love with Las Ventanas al Paraiso Resort the moment they set foot on the property in Mexico. From the whimsical and magical architecture to the incredible views, as well as the superbly manicured landscaping, it’s a resort that captured their heart. So much so it’s the place they were married! While building their pool Ray and Stephanie wanted their own version of Las Ventanas in their own home in Texas. Friends and family are constantly attending one of the couple’s many soirees in their 58-thousand-gallon swimming pool inspired by Las Ventanas. The pool has a free form shape with two pool levels. The top is a pool for adults and lounging, whereas the lower, shallow pool is designed for younger people. The pool is joined by a large outdoor cooking area that is perfect for entertaining. For the young and young at heart there’s a cave grotto to explore. Resting on top of the grotto is a slide big enough for adults! The view of the property is unique as the line of site goes for miles due to the elevation of the pool placement on the property. This is a beautiful, luxurious that transports the guest to a dreamlike resort.
