Living, Dining and Kitchen Area
The all in one large space, living, dining and kitchen in an open style design, takes in the view of the pool and the breathtaking rice fields. The living area to the right of the entry has many interesting features such as, the stereo system which is cleverly laid into the entry wall with speakers concealed in the rafters allowing music to float through the villa.
Set on grey tiles with a white border, the large U shaped sofa, to the right is made from concrete with green cushioned seating overlooking the pool and bale area opposite. Two footstools attach at either end of the sofa to add additional seating if required. On either side of the sofa is a raised platform for the table lamps and in front of the sofa a beautiful wooden table, cleverly designed to separate into four smaller coffee tables. Numerous wooden art pieces are displayed; behind the sofa 3 slivers of circular wood set between rectangular wall slits, to the far right and to the left large wooden curved balls and lastly a wooden stand with bowl on top. Each of these art pieces is special and adds to the luxurious detail within the property.
To the left of the entry is the dining area and kitchen. The dining room has a solid wooden table with unusually carved wooden stools seating 8 people. Behind the dining area, wooden barstools face the kitchen. Beautifully designed and a delight for any chef, the kitchen has sufficient crockery and cutlery to entertain guests and hotplate and large fridge are available to use. The tropical garden foliage is a picture bedside the kitchen and dining setting and artwork on walls surrounding, add to the colour of the landscape.
There are three air-conditioned bedrooms on this property all with their own en-suite bathroom.
The master bedroom is located upstairs and overlooks the pool and the large grassed garden below. The other two bedrooms are located down a flight of stairs. A feature of these rooms is the use of glass both inside and out. Glass windows from top to bottom and glass doors leading to the outside provide natural light into the rooms. Taking from the natural environment the use of green and brown furnishing has been used extensively in the curtains and cushions. All rooms have a TV, writing desk and good-sized wardrobes.
Within the master bedroom a glass door leads to the bathroom. Frosted glass is used in this area to give additional privacy. An outdoor shower with rain shower tap faces a large mirror and a toilet and cream terrazzo double basin completes this area. To add a touch of greenery, a small garden is also located within. A glass door in the bedroom leads to the T shaped path and the sun lounges and pool.
To the left of the staircase, downstairs is the next bedroom. Designed with glass surrounds it features the same colouring as the other rooms. A large dot painting is placed over the bed head. The wardrobes are on either side of the writing desk that is opposite the bed. On the wall above are wooden artefacts. A glass door leads outside to the garden and another leads into the bathroom space where the shower wall is painted grey and features a large white triangular shape as part of the design. Two terrazzo basins and mirrors above, look out over the tropical landscape.
To the right of the staircase, the third bedroom is slightly different to the others. The special feature here is while lying in bed you can view the underneath of the pool. If however this disturbs your sleep, green curtains can block this view. The bathroom design is similar to the other bathroom with the triangular design concept being the focus. The glass internal doors lead to the bathroom and outside garden area.
Between the two downstairs bedrooms is a little pond and a large expanse of lawn with tropical foliage surrounding it. This area is certainly large enough to kick a football or have a soccer game.
A large rectangular swimming pool with steps leading down from the living area is inviting. Four sun lounges with a couple of umbrellas to shade from the hot sun and a well proportioned bale that overlooks the rice fields and lush garden below, adds to that tropical feel.
This is a stylish property, beautifully designed and displayed. It is set in a quiet, peaceful location ensuring that your holiday will be relaxing. Staff clean and maintain the property on a daily basis and are at your request should you require anything.
