This sexy little number is truly off the beaten track and perfect for those of us who like to pretend to be intrepid travellers but need a dash of luxe.
The house is a new build but set amongst traditional village houses and opening directly onto the beach. The house staff live in neighbouring homes and have been well trained to provide good service and will cook both delicious Indian dishes, often featuring lots of fresh fish, but also some basic pasta dishes .
The ground floor provides spacious open plan living with a good and well equipped kitchen, a dining area and an large living area. Decorated by interior designer Alice von Baum, it is contemporary and stylish with big, comfortable sofas, lots of cushions and a large daybed. The front opens up onto a terrace with dining facilities and sun loungers and an outdoor shower.
The master suite and guest suite both open onto private terraces and views onto the beach and sea. Both have wonderful bathrooms and the master suite features a copper stand alone tub.
The large “dorm" room is perfect for teenagers, or indeed just one other couple. It has a large double bed and two twin beds. The bathroom is just across the hall.
A small path leads down to an idyllic and deserted beach. A short swim across a shallow estuary leads onto a large sweeping crescent of white sandy beach and clear water, backed by palm trees, with the occasional fishing boat.
Two kayaks (a single and a double) and two paddle boards are available; perfect for trips down the estuary and for bird watching.
This house has been beautifully done and a lot of thought has gone into making it a supremely comfortable and welcoming beach house, perfect for those wanting to get off the beaten track. This is boho chic at its very, very best.
