Open on all sides to provide natural airflow and expansive views, the living room is filled with a casual assortment of beanbags, cushions and bird cage lanterns dangling over an aqua-hued lounge suite. The wooden dining table seats six and is adjacent to a glassed off TV room fitted with Satellite TV, a Bose powered iPod docking station, WiFi, a selection of magazines and DVDs, and creamy sofas topped with embroidered cushions. The bright and modern well-equipped kitchen has wooden shelves, extensive windows and a magnificent granite work bench that doubles as a breakfast counter.
The natural attributes of the villa are enhanced with heavy earthenware vases, lamps, and wood slab tables scattered throughout all the rooms. Each air-conditioned bedroom occupies its own pavilion surrounded by timber decking. White décor creates a sense of freshness and features include walk-in wardrobes, mosquito nets and generous modern bathrooms with indoor rain showers and black terrazzo finishing contrasting with colourful bathroom tiles. The Beach View bedroom overlooks the garden and beach, with a king-size bed set on a raised platform, and a sofa and writing desk occupying one corner. A mural of yellow trees adorns sliding doors that reveal a huge bathroom with hand painted floral tiles, raised bath, outdoor shower deck and lavish dressing area furnished with sofas.
The Temple View room has a secluded setting with a private deck overlooking the river, temple and hills. Twin beds convert to a king, and furniture includes a cane rocking chair and writing desk. A large bathroom offers a wall of river pebbles, raised bathtub and hilly outlook. The queen-bedded Sea View room is on the highest part of the property with breathtaking views over the ocean, pool and garden. Adornments include a large oval rice-paper lamp, coffee table and chairs. The views can also be enjoyed from the bathroom which has wooden fittings, his and hers square sinks, and attractive blue/black tiles.
The office overlooks a courtyard, with timber shelving holding a computer and photo copier, as well as cook books, and novels – including a collection of Penguin classics. Decorative masks and tribal artefacts decorate the walls, and the floor is covered in zebra print rugs. With an adjoining bathroom and two comfortable day beds, it could also be converted into a nanny or kids room.
