Coronadas are an exotic, ever-changing and often misunderstood bird.
They are also a symbol of the tropics’ rich cultural heritage.
In this beautiful house in Chateaux de Corontados, the family have created a cozy, modern home with a view of the island.
The family’s son, Gabriel, is a designer.
He designed the kitchen, living area, bathrooms and living room.
The family’s daughter, Carmen, is the architect.
They live in a five-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-bath, two bath house that has a pool, sauna, gym and a tennis court.
Gabriel and Carmen designed the house in 2017 and 2018.
I met them while visiting the house for a photography shoot.
On the first visit, they told me the house was an old house with wooden beams, a roof and some very old appliances.
They said the house has been in their family since they were young and they thought it would be perfect for the family.
Then I asked, “What would you like to do with the house?”
“We just wanted to create a space for kids to play, for kids in general, so it’s always been about that,” Carmen said.
“You can imagine what it would feel like to have a family living in the same space,” Gabriel said.
“I just wanted this house to be a space where kids can play.”
Gabiel and Carmen opened their home on the island of Coronada in March 2019, after spending 10 months renovating their old house.
It was originally built in the 1950s and has been sitting empty since then.
Carmen said they are happy to be here and they hope to have the house open again in a few years.
When the family moved into the house, the first thing they noticed was the fact that it had a huge pool and sauna.
So, they decided to have kids take their baths at home.
There are two children and two adults in the house.
They have a three-year-old and a six-year old.
What a great experience to have all of our children have fun here.

For a family with five children, the pool is an important part of the home.
They took it apart and painted the inside.
Next, they wanted to have fun with their kids.
They decided to put them in the sauna and have a little exercise session.
Their children were excited about the pool, but they didn’t want to take them there.
After the saunas and the exercise, the kids were ready for their exercise class.
As they were leaving, they noticed a couple of people waiting for them in a car.
But they didn, too.
Eventually, they arrived to find the family waiting for the people they came to see.
This is a very cool, beautiful home.
I am very happy to see so many people visiting the place.
Here’s hoping the people will stay longer and continue visiting for their own enjoyment.
