Celebrity Homes: George Clooney’s Mexican Villa

George Clooney and his wife, Amal, own a gorgeous vacation home in Los Cabos, Mexico. It’s actually located side by side on the same compound as the vacation home of his longtime BFF, Rande Gerber (and his wife Cindy Crawford). They’ve named the compound Casamigos, meaning “House of Friends”, which is perfect because of their love of friends and family get-togethers.

Here are some of our favorite things about George Clooney’s Mexican villa:

The Courtyard

It was hard for us to choose between the cozy courtyard or the stunning pool as our favorite thing about this vacation home. We decided to go with the courtyard because we loved how inviting the space is. Even with the high ceilings, done in a slatted canopy, there is still warmth achieved from the fireplace and seating, the Morisca quartzite wall, and the low hanging twine-wrapped lanterns.

Natural Materials

We love how there are natural materials used throughout the home and that many of them are native to Mexico.

In the bathroom and the kitchen, the cabinets are done with wood from a tree called parota (also known as the elephant-ear tree) found in central Mexico. It’s a rich and multicolored wood that looks gorgeous covering the cabinets and island. It also matches the wood beams and other wood details in the home.

Travertine, also form central Mexico, is used as well. The outdoor living area has travertine seating and a travertine fire pit. It’s also used for the bar top in Clooney’s personal bar (stocked with his own tequila brand, Casamigos!) and the Jacuzzi on the master bath terrace.

Beachfront Property and Privacy

Like usual, it’s practically impossible to not rave about the gorgeous ocean views and beachfront access since the home is located right on the beach. However, Clooney’s home has “privacy-ensuring vegetation”. He told Architectural Digest “If my house were truly open it would present too many opportunities for people to take pictures”.

We also love how most of the rooms in the home allow for the walls to be completely open leaving no disruption between inside and out.
