The one-story facade

Like the two other cottages, this one has a Spanish name referring to the fact that it looks toward the sea. Like Casa del Sol, it has a three-story facade on the hillside and a one-story facade with an entrance court on the opposite side. It has the white walls and red tiles associated with Spanish architecture, but the elaborate details--brackets with heads, putti with garlands, etc.--are more closely related to Renaissance elements.
