Villa Mako celebrates history, rejoices in eclecticism and revels in romance. If you're into colour, antiques and rustic charm, then this three-bedroom holiday home will make you go ‘WOW!' From its recycled teakwood floors, time-honoured stained glass doors and louvered shutters, to its spectacular high wooden ceilings, Villa Mako captures the nostalgic architectural heritage of the Dutch colonial era. Oozing with visual texture, objets trouvés, antique furnishings and lush fabrics, the sensual interiors express the owners' love of Indonesia.
Designed by a Dutch architect, the authentic colonial style presents a rich and creative combination of two cultures. It's easy to be transported to a bygone era while gazing at the beautiful Balinese landscape and enjoying a pot of Earl Grey tea on your bedroom terrace or sitting in the magnificent hall, gin & tonic in hand, waiting for dinner to be served. Yet, at the same time, this rural idyll is all about modern comforts – its beautiful feature kitchen, cosy media room and stylish sunlit bathrooms will bring you right back to the 21st century.
And then there's the garden! Imagine a stairway through an avenue of tree ferns, leading down to the swimming pool at the far side of a velvety lawn, punctuated with sweet-scented frangipanis and coconut palms. This family-oriented villa considers the safety of small children with a gated fence that separates the building from the pool. Youngsters are further considered with toys, Playstation 2, and a library of children's books and DVDs. Additionally, four bicycles are provided, two for adults and two for kids.
Located in a traditional village, Villa Mako also honours local culture; staff are happy to escort guests to Balinese Hindu ceremonies at the nearby temple, and the cook loves to prepare Balinese feasts. Villa Mako operates a grocery system on guest account with dishes chosen from a selection menu and customised according to requirements; the staff will happily do the provisioning for all meals at no additional cost. Indeed, guests rave about Villa Mako's home-cooked delights, all of which contribute to that previously-mentioned extra special WOW factor!
