This gorgeous octagonal-shaped, two-storey villa with its shingle roof is deliciously romantic . Guests walk into a delightful living and dining room complete with an integrated well-equipped kitchen, surrounded by glass doors and windows that open to the sea views, allowing the cool breezes to permeate. Here, the richly patterned, textured stonework is quite remarkable, featuring a stacked natural blue-stone wall and decorative stone mosaic floor tiles in shades of cream and grey. Centrepiece is a funky, irregular-shaped wooden dining table for four, which is flanked by curved built-in seating. The seat cushions and scatter cushions match the exact shade of the delicate aqua blue Java stone wall behind, which is fitted with glass lamps and staggered on one side to display some local Indonesian artefacts. Other furnishings in this room include comfy sofas, a coffee table and ottomans positioned to enjoy the glorious vista of the garden, pool and ocean beyond.
Accessed by a pair of antique Balinese doors, the downstairs bedroom is air conditioned and furnished with a queen bed positioned in an arched alcove complete with shelves and hanging space. A muslin curtain can be draped around the bed, turning it into a romantic tent. A flat-screen TV is mounted on the wall, and in a far corner beside the window is a daybed which doubles as a single bed for a child. The adjacent bathroom is fitted with a standing shower and a river rock washbasin; precious features are the arched glassless peepholes in the thick walls looking out to the sea.
The air-conditioned master bedroom is situated on the upper floor, with panoramic windows all around to the mountains, rice fields and ocean. The room is equipped with a TV and furnished with a king bed, a Timorese carved desk, hanging space, and a sofa that doubles as a bed for a child. A small balcony offers a cushioned daybed, which is a great spot for relaxing. The ensuite bathroom has a standing shower.
The velvety terraced lawn rolls to the cliff edge with a fabulous 20m T-shaped infinity swimming pool that appears to overflow into the ocean. A balé relaxation pavilion rests to one side.
