For Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber, the decision to build a vacation compound in Los Cabos, Mexico, with longtime friend and business partner George Clooney was easy. George and Rande discovered the oceanside lot while vacationing together and began to envision the possibilities: Christmas vacations without booking a year in advance and a short enough flight to accommodate spontaneous weekend trips. After nixing the initial idea of building one large house, the trio decided on two individual homes in one compound, Casamigos (aka House of Friends). Wanting to avoid the usual Hacienda-style villas commonly found in the region, they called on the firm of Ricardo Legorreta, one of Mexico’s famed architects, and his son, Víctor, to create two modern structures that complemented the coastal terrain. Featured in the November issue of Architectural Digest, the close-knit group opens the doors to their breathtaking beach compound. Take a look at some of our favorite spaces in each of their homes!Like Rande and Cindy's home (pictured here), George's house also opens with a long hallway that flows elegantly into a dramatic, central courtyard. The courtyard connects to a series of sitting areas, dining spaces, an open kitchen, and a bar. Both homes have spacious pools that face the ocean. Rande and Cindy's pool (pictured here) includes a stunning terrace that provides plenty of places to lounge and eat while taking in the views. George's home comes equipped with an especially spacious bar area. The large, flat-screen TV is a popular spot for catching sports games with friends. George's courtyard is similar to Rande and Cindy's, with the addition of netted, fisherman-style pendants that illuminate the space at night.
