Mayapott is a uniquely designed, boutique property that has been featured several times in leading design publications. The structures are built around a huge rock; a stream passes under and through it. This home is literally built in and around nature; the unique feature of Mayapott is that it is created entirely without in any way disrupting its natural setting. Natural rocks are left as they were in many rooms. En-suite toilets enclose a little bit of green and a patch of sky! It is a house designed for living in and with nature . . . the dividing line between indoors and outdoors blurs and fades! Is it a collection of structures in a garden, or a garden to live in, created and enveloped by its defining structures?

Built entirely out of locally available rock, the structure is also unique in the fact that little cement is used to bond the chiseled rocks together. Each rock was painstakingly templated on to the other and the structure took more than 2 full years to be completed. There are more two dozens of unique flowering plants that belong to the ginger family, like the red ginger, shell ginger and torch ginger.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime!
