The Villa is located on a very quiet cul-de-sac in the original part of Las Brisas, near the scenic highway. This area is considered the most exclusive part of Las Brisas. The villa is just in front of Casa Bristol (now los Helechos), which was owned by Frank Sinatra for many years (and where he married Mia Farrow) and next to Casa Patricia, the original home of fashion icon Gloria Guinness and her husband Loel.
The Villa is very private, surrounded by over 7000 square meters (about 1.7 acres) of gardens, large tropical trees and plants, and a spectacular view of the open ocean, part of the Roqueta Island and the lights of the Las Americas peninsula. From here you can observe spectacular sunrises and sunsets 365 days a year. Nothing can distract you from its total serenity.
There is a terrace with a large and deep swimming-pool (app. 20 meters long) where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner. On another terrace (the grill terrace) you may enjoy the grilled meats or a freshly caught fish of the day and of course the wonderful fruits and vegetables that are part of Acapulco's local produce. Have a buffet in the evening and admire the twinkling lights of the city and the bay.
Quetzalcalli features a 10 meter high waterfall that is built within prehistoric boulders, which flows into the Jacuzzi-swimming pool on the second level. Several terraces or informal living-sitting and entertaining areas are on this level with a length of more or less 45 meters.and over 6 meters wide. It is totally equipped as an informal living and dinning area.
Partially shadowed by huge tropical trees such as the yellow amate, Ceiba and a Fig tree, which grows through the roof of the downstairs bar. Here you can meditate, while enjoying the peace of the Bay of Santa Lucia and contemplate its incredible history and the different civilizations that lived here many centuries past.
Quetzalcallis' architecture is in the style of Frank Lloyd Wrights', "Falling Water", with a very large living room on the first level decorated with important contemporary and pre-Columbian art. In the rear of the living room and set apart is a large dining area with three Ero Saarinen dining tables and chairs, which can seat 24 people comfortably for an informal or formal meal.
A step down from the living area you reach a partially roofed area with a low round table in form of Quetzalcoatl (the feathered serpent god of the Toltecs), surrounded by Harry Bertoia chairs and next to it a large bar, with the fig trees as a backdrop. Down a couple of stairs the swimming pool with a large terrace made out of deep red cantera from Queretaro.
