A tour of our villa

the entrance lobby...

The villa's front doors open directly in to the entrance foyer lit be a magnificent purple chandelier and guarded by a gold leppard! The lobby is decorated in a square theme with polished and rough plaster squares, studded with gold discs, covering the main wall and square rugs leading down to the lounge. To the right of the hall is the entertainment room where the big, as well as little, kids can entertain themselves away from the other guests!

the kitchen...

It doesn't matter how nice the beach, BBQ, breakfast terrace, pool or lounge are, there are times when people always congregate in a kitchen; and should this happen to you, this one is just perfect. In addition to all the modern kitchen equipment, double fronted fridge/freezer with ice and water dispenser and seperate wine fridge, this kitchen benefits from an independent music zone, Nesspresso coffe maker, marbled breakfast bar and funky metal tiling; and of course a decent set of knive for the chefs!

the lounge and dinning room...

The lounge and dinning rooms are both decorated in antique cream stucco, giving amazing effects as the sun reflects off it in the morning. The dinning room seats eight and is decorated with 'The man' oil on canvas by Vladimir Efeminov. A patio door leads directly to the terrace breakfast area, and the dinning table is eluminated with a brilliant shell globe, complimented by dinasaur egg lights, mood cove lighting and corner latice floor lamp. The room has its own opus music system zone, which is also linked to speakers on the breakfast terrace.

The lounge of this luxury holiday to Dubai has an eight seat Natuzzi white leather sofa facing the beach and frond. The shell lighting theme is carried over from the dinning room with a shell mobile celing light in the centre of the room. The views are spectactular, and the room has three sets of patio doors; the first opening directly onto the terrace and the steps leading down to the beach, and the other two sets of door opening onto the pool and bbq area. The artwork is a creation by Bonita O'Donnell, interior designer, and Sue of the Art House Dubaiand hangs on the main wall, its difficult to resist touching it as you pass!

the entertainment room...

If the sun, beach and temperature controlled private pool don't keep you occupied, then the entertainment room of this Dubai villa will. With a 50" TV, 2 high spec PC's for your games or web surfing, PS3, and a stack of DVD's you can slump into one of the mega bean bags and blob!

For the more traditional, there is a selection of board games, and for those not quite able to escape work, the house has full wireless internet facilities. With 3 wireless zones that extend the wireless coverage throught the house and onto the beach, you can even put your feet in the see while answering those work emails!

For the music lovers, the Opus Multi-room entertainment system has a broad collection of music, and if you prefer to bring your own, then just dock your ipod! For those that are too lazy to use one of the wall mounted music points, there is always a wireless PDA that allows you to change tracks while on the sun bed!
