Like most people I really love my holidays and in particular spending time with my family. There are so many places I would love to visit overseas and in Australia. That is why I really enjoy searching the internet for ideal destinations. Some of the accommodation on offer is absolutely spectacular. In fact, clients are now commissioning prominent architects to create these havens. A great example is Casa Kimball, which was conceived by Rangr Studio.


I first spoke with Rangr Studio owner Jasmit Singh Rangr a few months ago via Skype because I am featuring his work in a forthcoming book I am writing about architecture. His design practice is located in the ‘Big Apple’ (New York, United States). Interestingly Jasmit worked for renowned companies like Joseph Allen Stein and Gluckman Mayner Architects before establishing his own practice.  As well as creating some fantastic residential properties Jasmit has worked on a world class museum in Tokyo and the Bronx Charter School.


When I first saw Casa Kimball I was pretty blown away by the design. This magnificent villa is located in the Dominican Republic and took three years to create. In this time Jasmit Singh Rangr visited the site 25 times to ensure the construction was perfect. Ultimately the results speak for themselves as this is an absolutely beautiful piece of contemporary architecture. Every detail has been meticulously considered and only the finest materials like Brazilian hardwood and a local stone called Coralina (which is mined in the Dominican Republic) have been used.


In total Casa Kimball has 8 Guestrooms with en-suite modern bathrooms. All of the accommodation has floor to ceiling windows with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. They also have many other creature comforts like air conditioning, ceiling fans, MP3 docks and security safes. Outdoors there is a spectacular terrace area, Infinity Pool and ocean front Jacuzzi.


As you would expect luxury accommodation of this level doesn’t come cheap and you should expect to pay around $3,750 per day in high season.
