Get away in style: Casa Kimball

Where would I want to celebrate my 40th birthday or my 10th wedding anniversary? Hmmm, let's see... Someplace exclusive, in an elegant setting, with a great view, on the sea, with a few good friends. I would want the perfect place for the perfect anniversary in a perfect... dream! Casa Kimball, offers all of the above and more! (whether I can afford it, or afford to dream of it).

Casa Kimball is a private beach house and rental villa located on the North coast of the Dominican Republic. Designed by Rangr Studio, an internationally published architectural design firm, for the Google software engineer Spencer Kimball.

The villa is about 20,000 square feet, and includes eight suites, two indoor and two outdoor lounges, a dining room with a view centered on the pool out to the ocean, and an outdoor bar area.

Glassy openness and muted, stony hues lead architect Rangr Studio’s design. The interior spaces merge with the exterior spaces, giving the house plenty of natural light and also allowing in the cool ocean breeze under shade from the sun, throughout the year. Floors and ceilings are covered with local coral stone.
