Comfortable And Contemporary Villa In Jimbaran With Ocean Views
There is so much on offer at this fantastic stylish four bedroom villa in Jimbaranthat a perfect family holiday is guaranteed. The ground floor is where you’ll find the air-conditioned play room where children will be entertained for hours by the flat-screen TV with DVD player and Xbox while resting on colourful beanbags. When the novelty wears off – or Mum and Dad decide to pull the plug on technology – there’s a trunk full of good old fashioned games, Lego and pool toys to play with.
The inviting 15-metre salt water swimming pool is flanked by a stone deck that’s furnished with cushioned sun loungers and features a shallow shelf for those who would rather chill than swim. On the opposite side of the pool, a cute thatched balé (gazebo) appears to float on the surface of the water and provides a comfortable escape for guests seeking respite from the sun.
A charming poolside lounge – perfect for pre-dinner cocktails – is cooled by ceiling fans suspended from a timber roof and furnished with built-in sofa seating and four rattan chairs.
An open-air terrace is the ideal spot for night-time barbecues and informal family get togethers. Here, an eight-seater all-weather table rests on a platform of white stone surrounded by a sea of white pebbles with fragrant frangipani trees at each corner.
The ground floor forms the social hub of the villa with the lounge, dining and kitchen facing the pool behind glass sliding doors which can be closed for air-conditioned comfort or opened to enjoy the natural sea breeze.
The relaxed lounge, furnished with a large, L-shaped beige sofa and chocolate brown arm chair, is just the place to get together and watch movies on the large flat-screen TV or enjoy some music on the state–of-the-art Bose sound system. There’s even a small library with a funky orange rocking chair for those who wish to curl up with a good book.
The open-plan dining and kitchen area features a dining table for eight below a shell chandelier which looks lovely lit at night, and a foosball table where the kids can burn off any excess energy while waiting for their dinner. The modern kitchen is fitted with black granite worktops and is well equipped with a four-burner hob, oven, double refrigerator, wine fridge, espresso machine, microwave, and everything else that the chef needs in order to prepare delicious meals.
The villa’s four chic and stylish air-conditioned bedrooms – two masters and two guest suites – feature comfortable beds (three king-size and one twin) with bedside tables and lamps, TV and DVD player (except ground floor master suite), iPod docks and ceiling fans. The lower master suite looks out to the pool while the upstairs master and two guest bedrooms open onto a large wooden deck with sweeping ocean views. For the star-gazers, a telescope is provided.
Each bedroom has a marble ensuite bathroom fitted with a walk-in rain shower and hand-held shower, while the two master suites have the additional luxury of bathtubs, (a jacuzzi tub in the upstairs suite). Providing extra sleeping space for families with young children, two trundle beds are stored under the beds in the twin room.
The villa is in a fantastic location, just a five-minute walk from Jimbaran; a sweeping bay that curves for five kilometres from the southern side of the airport to the start of the Bukit Peninsula.The bay is protected by an unbroken coral reef which means it’s great for little kids and excellent for swimming.
Jimbaran is also renowned for its beachside warungs (local eateries) offering just about every type of fresh seafood you can think of, making it a very popular venue for sunset dinners.
A full complement of staff are on hand to make you feel at home. Ask the friendly in-house chef to prepare a seafood feast on the barbecue terrace, or one of the waiting staff to fix you a cocktail by the pool – one thing’s for sure, you need not lift a finger except to flip a page of your book or select your favourite song on the Bose stereo system.
