Surprising 4 bedroom Sea View Pool Villa in Laem Set
Welcome to Hammock Villa, Koh Samui, Thailand. A wonderfully spacious, modern home on 2500 m2 of gently sloping private land directly overlooking the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Thailand and the islands beyond. Hammock Villa is part of the very desirable and ecologically sensitive private estate of Santikhiri on the unspoilt and still undervalued southern shores of Koh Samui island. Fabulous views, absolute privacy, stunning flora and fauna surrounding the house, and endless beautiful sunsets. What MORE could you possibly want?
You will be tempted to spend many lazy hours swinging in the famous hammock, strung between two mango trees, which cheekily grows through the huge wooden deck spanning the whole frontage of this spectacular home, and facing the glittering sea. A plunge pool, with nearby shower just a few steps from the main living areas of the home, lets you cool off in crystal clear water anytime you choose.
The estate comprises 30 very large, private and well screened plots where owners share the benefit of many luxurious facilities including a very large 25 metre salt water swimming pool with infinity waterfall plus beautifully maintained grassy sunbathing areas and very well designed, separate male and female changing facilities equipped with modern showers and toilets. An elegant yoga sala overlooks the scene.
The very large plots, together with uniquely impressive granite boulders and a lush panoply of beautiful native trees throughout the Estate, protect the privacy of each magnificent Villa. The newly upgraded roads within the estate now provide steep but very manageable access by car to Hammock Villa’s private and well shaded parking area with up to three vehicles at least. From there few beautifully crafted stone steps lead gently down to the peace and tranquillity of Hammock Villa.
The top floor at entrance level provides two very large bedrooms each with spacious and airy en suites bathrooms and fabulous views of the sea framed by gorgeous mango trees. The master bedroom has its own spacious covered balcony – ideal for drying towels and bathing costumes, relaxation and yoga – which overlooks the pool. Both upstairs bedrooms benefit from large built-in wardrobes with handy internal three drawer units. All bedrooms in the house have air-conditioners and ceiling fans plus the added protection of framed mosquito screens on all windows and sliding glass doors.
A wonderful open-tread wooden stairway takes you down to the huge 10 by 15 metre wide totally undivided main floor of the home opening directly onto the newly renovated and large sundeck which runs across the entire frontage of this amazing home. Not a single new visitor will be able to suppress a gasp of wonder at the rare beauty of the shoreline and glittering seascape which unfolds before them as they descend these stairs.
To the right at ground floor level is a large kitchen boasting most modern conveniences. Two lengthy, top quality granite workbenches permit meals and utensils to be passed quickly over to the dining area which in turn opens out to the fabulous sundeck and its wonderful sea views. To the side of the dining area double doors give access to stone steps which conveniently take you up to the property’s large parking area. And towards the rear part of the kitchen inside the home is a bright and convenient utility room fitted out with workbench and washbasin, plus handy storage cupboards and a Toilet.
From the far side of the living area wide stone steps lead down from the pool (and the efficient water filtering plant underneath) to the bottom floor of the home which offers an excellent third double bedroom also facing the sea, a shaded covered terrace ideal for cool sleeping on the hottest summer nights, plus a third bathroom with shower and toilet. Absolutely the ideal set-up for rowdy teenagers! Or staff accommodation. And a separate room containing the water storage tank as well as water cleaning and heating plants is situated at this level also. Hammock Villa is very well equipped and can be sold with all its furniture and accoutrements if required.
This amazing property, built with love fifteen years ago, is a brilliantly crafted and very special modern family home constructed on possibly the most favoured block in the Santikhiri Estate due to its elevation, its privacy, its uninterrupted all day sun and mesmerising views. Not to mention the stunning nightfalls as the burning sun dips slowly into the welcoming sea.
Its current owners built Hammock Villa 15 years ago with instructions to their architect to use the best available materials; to preserve as many trees and flowering bushes as they could on the property; and to make maximum use of large shaded rooms, very open plan designs and natural breezes in order to keep the home as cool and as naturally fresh as possible. The effect is stunning – all year round the only sounds residents may hear are the birds singing, a gentle breeze blowing and the soothing splashing of a tidal sea.
Very vital for resident owners and guests too is the fact that Santikhiri is a gated community and access from the road is controlled every day and night of the year by uniformed guards employed and managed by Estate Managers appointed by the owners. No-one is allowed into the estate if their identity is not known. Their office is open six days a week, Sundays excepted, right through the year. The community also employs a team of gardeners who maintain the internal roads, common areas and the swimming pool.
