PHUKET: A rare opportunity is presenting itself on Koh Maprao, or Coconut Island, in the form of a piece of private, pristine beach front featuring a luxury, tropical villa ready for the taking.
The essence of Asian simplicity is captured by this Balinese style villa, isolated on the enchanting beach front on Coconut Island, which is off the east coast of Phuket.
Not part of an estate or development, this villa creates the perfect degree of seclusion, yet is still near Phuket’s finest amenities and outstanding cuisine, with floating restaurants just 10 minutes away.
Relax on the home’s comfortable, furnished veranda and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the breathtaking views of Phang Nga Bay and the surrounding islands.
To experience Coconut Island means to truly understand the idea of escaping into paradise. You can relax in your own spa tub, pamper yourself in the pool and jacuzzi or meditate in the sala by the beach while listening to the gentle sea and wildlife.
An open floor plan is comprised of four bedrooms, a large living area, three bathrooms, an office, a kitchen and a dining area.
The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with modern kitchen appliances, including a gas oven, microwave, refrigerator, washer, dryer and ample work space. Cupboards are made from teak wood and counters are black marble.
The office is off the living room and has air conditioning and windows which look onto the garden.
The spacious master bedroom has fully ducted air conditioning and a ceiling fan, in addition to a large walk-in closet. Glass doors lead to the veranda with sea views.
The en suite bathroom has a spa, double sinks made of black marble and white porcelain and a outdoor garden bathtub that is completely private.
The guest bedroom also offers sea views and has doors leading to the veranda. There is an en suite bathroom, a large built-in closet and sitting area.
The additional two bedrooms are single size and also have fully ducted air conditioning, ceiling fans and built-in closets. They share an en-suite bathroom. The bedrooms offer tropical views of the surrounding forest.
All bedrooms have solid teak floors, and the main living area has high vaulted ceilings with wood accents.
The pool measures 12x5 meters and overlooks the beach, as it is located just a few footsteps from the sand. There is a jacuzzi, shower and attractive lighting features.
The garden has grass, coconut trees, frangipani trees, tropical plants and ferns.
A separate staff house has four rooms, two bathrooms, a shower, a toilet, a kitchen, a lounge, a washing room, ceiling fans and an air conditioner.
Currently, there are permanent staff consisting of a husband and wife team, a maid who also cooks, a gardener who maintains the generator and pool, and an on-call boatman who is also a handyman.
The amazing thing about this property is that you are about 20 minutes from all major facilities. By boat it is only 10 minutes to the Ao Por Pier and 15 minutes away from the Boat Lagoon and Royal Phuket
Marina. For more information contact: Patrick Lusted at Siam Real Estate and quote reference HSOB2051 T: 076-288908. W: siamrealestate.com
