About the Property

A relaxed beach home: Perfect for escaping to a tropical beach paradise.

Only steps from the sand, this family-friendly villa has an unbeatable beach-front location, with stunning views, large swimming pool, and an acre of private tropical gardens. The beach is pristine, and is in a protected marine park and turtle nesting zone.

The one-storey building is designed around a secure, private courtyard, complete with salt-water swimming pool and tropical gardens. A roof-top sun-deck, with thatch shelter, is perfect for evening sun-downers and magnificent views over the Indian Ocean. There is a spacious, fully-equipped kitchen and an airy dining and living room, but most of the year life is enjoyed on the deep and sheltered verandah overlooking Turtle Bay. The light and airy, en-suite bedrooms are fan-cooled, and open to the courtyard and pool.

Experienced, friendly and helpful house staff will cater to your needs throughout your stay. These include a caretaker, cook and cleaner/nanny who all speak English. Local fishermen can bring fresh seafood to your door and the house is convenient to local shops, bars, restaurants and amenities. A private car is not essential, as taxis can be readily found to take you to shops, the airport and local sights.
