Sublime Luxury at Havannah Harbour
4,069 m² - Vanuatu
“Sublime luxury at the beach” sounds like an understatement when you discover this unique and exquisite Villa.
Overlooking the crystal blue and tranquil waters of Havannah Harbour, with its offshore islands and magical sunsets, this exclusive residence is the “ultimate entertainer’s” tropical beach house, with 10 meters-high ceilings towering over the huge living, lounge, dining and designer’s kitchen area.
Completing the residence: 3 large bedrooms with en-suite, office, cinema, screened veranda pool and gorgeous tropical gardens plus BBQ and lounge area at the beach, refreshing pergola surrounded by a large pond, a separate luxury one bedroom apartment and a separate gym.
Walk along the beach to the 5 star Havannah Resort for breakfast, lunch or dinner and live the perfect pampered life at the beach.
Havannah Harbour is an easy 25 minute drive North-West of Port Vila international airport on a tar sealed road. It is an idyllic location without the hustle and bustle of the capital, sheltered from the prevailing winds and mainly populated by relaxed expatriates.
Local residents are mostly keen swimmers, fishermen or boaties, enjoying all that the stunning harbor has to offer including diving and snorkeling the amazing coral reefs right from their own private beach, paddling along the coast, socializing with BBQ and dinner parties and of course, watching endless sunsets.
The Outdoor Setting
This Villa is situated on Sunset Beach in an acre of manicured gardens. Fruit trees include Kaffir Limes, Lemons, Oranges, Grapefruit, Mangoes, Avocados, Soursop, Bananas and Paw Paw. An established curry tree compliments lemongrass, rosemary and a variety of other herbs. Mature Frangipani and Jacaranda trees abound amongst a variety of Palm Trees and the garden showcases a wide variety of Hibiscus, Ginger, Cycads, Bougainvillea, Roses and well trimmed hedges. A highlight in the garden is the large Water-Lilly pond adjacent to the beachside dining and kitchen fare. Relax on the beachside sofa with your morning coffee and watch the turtles snacking just meters from the beach.
This residence is famed for its 10 meters-high cathedral ceilings and open-plan living space, dominated by the Grand Piano on display as you enter the main salon. Various seating areas, defined by Persian rugs and tropical ceiling fans, service the large screen TV, a library nook and a window-side reading area.
A large indoor dining table overlooks the luxury designer’s kitchen which has two sinks, two dishwashers, two ovens, a built-in coffee maker, three wine fridges, a dedicated liquor cabinet, substantial built-in ‘easy close’ drawers and cupboards, white Caesarstone countertops and bar seating for six stools.
Three air-conditioned, king size bedrooms – each with an en-suite – lead off the main salon. A large air-conditioned office / second living area has sliding glass doors with vistas of the swimming pool and the harbour beyond.
A wide hallway with abundant book storage and featured art works leads to the air- conditioned, sound-proof cinema with elevated recliner white leather seating. The giant screen and surround sound ensure a first-class cinema experience.
Another notable feature is the large, Crimsafe screened verandah areas that overlook the harbour-side views to the islands. A BBQ, a dining table for 12 persons and a living area with rattan lounge seating for 8 persons adorn the spacious verandahs.
In fact, the whole property has Crimsafe screens on all doors and windows and this creates a safe haven – day and night – perfect for “insect-free” breezes, without the need to close any of the glass sliding doors. The main residence also houses a luxury powder room and laundry and has direct access from a 3 car lock-up garage.
Outside, a self-contained guest-apartment has an additional kitchen, living area, king size bed and luxury bathroom. This is only one, of numerous outbuildings that dot the landscaped acreage, providing pleasant garden escapes and peaceful privacy.
A 45m2 separate luxury Guest Pavilion, with sliding glass doors overlooking the gardens, self-contained kitchen, bathroom complete with bath and shower, spacious living and a king size bed.
The beach pavilion houses a wood fired BBQ area, a bar table with 10 bar stools, a dining table for 8 and a large sectional sofa.
Surrounded by water lilies this pavilion is a restful place for two sun lounges.
An air-conditioned gymnasium with glass doors overlooking the gardens.
