While we’ve long been enamored with secluded vacation homes set in remote locales, the ongoing global pandemic has made the prospect of an isolated holiday all the more appealing. One of our favorite recently completed projects in this space is Mexico’s Casa Etére (Spanish for the “Ethereal House”).
The brainchild of Mexico-based Singaporean author and designer, Prashant Ashoka, the glass-covered cabin is located in Central Mexico on an extinct volcano and is built on a foundation made entirely from locally-sourced rock. The 807-square foot abode is completely self-sustaining, running off solar power and collected rainwater and sports large floor to ceiling windows in multiple areas of the home, creating what Ashoka calls a “theatre to nature.” Surrounded by views of the local landscape for as far as the eye can see, Casa Etére also features a well-manicured yard with a sunken hot tub. The building is also just a 20-minute drive from the San Miguel de Allende, Mexico UNESCO World Heritage Site. Casa Etére is currently available for vacation bookings with a minimum two-night stay starting at $358. More info can be found at the house’s website linked below.
