This secluded property is a bungalow house stashed in a densely planted estate. With a beautiful garden and a sparkling swimming pool, you’re most likely to have a restful retreat. The spacious property features a bright lounge with unique cushion seating and two bedrooms suitable for six guests.
From every direction, the organic vibe of the space speaks of the ingenious use of bamboo in the furniture. Wooden cabinetries and furniture embellish the space in an attention-grabbing manner. The villa is surrounded by quiet nature but is close enough to the public market and grocery store. It is recommended to buy fresh goods and then prepare healthy meals in the well-equipped kitchen during your stay.
