Walk to the Beach, 6 Bedroom Villa Layan
Smell and sound of the sea in the house and by the pool
100m flat walk to the beach
Sea views from the upper bedrooms & terraces.
In immaculate condition a 2 story FREEHOLD pool villa with upper floor ocean views and always the sound of breaking waves just a flat 100m walk to the beach and on the edge of Laguna.
Villa Salafa sits just 100 metres from Layan beach and is separated by a small palm plantation. The 7km long, crescent-shaped beach itself is beautifully tranquil and generally quite deserted with just a handful of exclusive hotels dotted along its edges. The Andaman sea’s waters are still very clean and unpolluted. A short flat walk will take you along Layan beach to the end where there is a small island that can be reached by foot during low tide.
6 bedrooms on the beach makes it a rare and desirable family home, a luxury vacation retreat or an ideal business model for some personal usage and some luxury vacation renting for income.
As a business, such a property would command a year round demand, premium rental rates and high occupancy because there are few 6 bedroom villas available anywhere, the Laguna/Layan area is always preferred and the villa set-up, staffing and service levels can create great loyalty among guests for repeat and referred rental stays. Competition for rental guests in the area is from Banyan Tree and Anantara – both much more expensive, both a longer walk ( usually a buggy ride) to the beach – and in offering the hotel experience, many premium guest prefer the privacy and freedom of a private villa for their holidays.
Rooms are on a grand scale, with high and vaulted ceilings on the upper levels and mostly open plan on the ground floor, a design that creates an abundance of natural airflow and light. Plentiful use of marble, granite and hardwood timber combine with simple wall finishes and elegant furnishing ( included) to create an authentic beach house feel.
The Villa is offered with a robust freehold ownership of the villa land and the villa buildings and is part of the gated community managed by international specialists CBRE for which a monthly contribution is made to the shared costs of providing estate services. Villa garden and pool are maintained, at the owners option, by the villa owner but can be switched to CBRE on request.
The villa boasts an impressive tropical arrival with exotic planting and lotus ponds leading to an extravagant marble-floored entrance hall with marble floors and full glazing to look out onto the pool, the pool deck and the lawn beyond. A covered carport, lockable storage and two pairs of hand carved wooden doors create the feeling of entering a luxury villa.
