Kid Friendly Villas

Happy kids make for a happy holiday. These villas are packed with things for the kids to do or have plenty of attractions in the local area. Whether it is Wii or WiFi, pool (snooker) or pool (swimming), it's boards rather than bored. We can’t guarantee that every property is 100% ‘kid safe’, but we can guarantee that there will be plenty to keep them entertained.

Villa Kendra

Villa Kendra

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

One of life’s simple pleasures is to drift off to sleep and wake up to the gorgeous smell of tuberose flowers wafting through the air, so we were thrilled to see that Villa Kendra had stocked every suite with a generous arrangement of these classic tropical flowers. Greeted by the staff with fresh watermelon juice and cool hand towels, we were immediately drawn to the pool deck; enjoying the sound of overflowing water against the busy backdrop of the neighbourhood. This villa is perfect for an extended family vacation: mum and dad can take the upstairs master bedroom with the kids in the connecting twin-bedded room, while grandparents, aunts, uncles, or teenagers will be more than happy with the Pool and Garden Suites down below. The kitchen is suitable for light self-catering such as drinks, snacks for the kids and easy meals that don’t require an oven, but the area really lends itself to eating out. After a lazy afternoon by the pool, we decided to go out for dinner and walked 400m to Hana, a small Japanese restaurant, where we tucked into a perfect bowl of ramen and sautéed salmon teriyaki. Then we slowly window-shopped our way to Bintang Supermarket to stock up on a few bits and pieces before heading back to the villa. After a big dose of ultra-hip Jalan Raya Seminyak, we really appreciated the lack of pretension and laid-back family ambiance at Villa Kendra. Next morning, even while we enjoyed our breakfast of poached eggs, whole wheat toast and fresh fruit besides the pool, we were already dreaming about the mezze platter from Zula, just down the street on Jalan Dhyana Pura. Our recommendation: don’t stay at Villa Kendra if you are weight-watching. With the excellent order-in service from Baliepicure and all these tempting treats on your doorstep, you just don’t stand a chance!

Khomba House

Khomba House

Sri Lanka » North West Coast » Kalpitiya

Khomba House was much bigger and grander than we’d imagined it to be and this was a wonderful surprise. Packed with places to relax, all in lovely bright tropical colours, the impetus here really is on keeping your body horizontal for as much time as possible. Daybeds double up as extra beds and this is certainly a great house for getting a gang together and enjoying some quality down time. It also makes a fab getaway for a family as the kids will love the adventure of the huge sandy garden and the beach beyond, not to mention the water sports available at the neighbouring resort. Aside from loving the amazing space that the house offered, we also were very taken by the genuine warmth of housekeepers Sisira and his wife Indrani. Sisira always had a smile on his face and was happy to assist with any request whilst Indrani was a whizz in the kitchen and her Sri Lankan food was delicious. There aren’t actually any menus in the villa, but Indrani is open to guests’ suggestions. Meals are charged at US$5 per person plus groceries at cost price plus 10% to cover fuel and basics.

Villa Kodok

Villa Kodok

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

As soon as we entered Villa Kodok we felt a real sense of seclusion, serenity and privacy. And we were so impressed with the staff’s from-the-heart service. This lovely team of Balinese people stayed well out of our way but were there in an instant if we needed them. A brass bell is provided to summon them at any time.

The villa was built as a home and has been furnished with love, yet it is also stylish, practical and immaculately maintained. We were delighted to note that there is so much emphasis on children here; it’s a true family-friendly villa with every consideration given to the care, entertainment and safety of guests’ children. Even the fishpond outside the living room has a protective grill over it to deter over-curious kids. The villa has a connection with the nearby Glo Day Spa, so guests get a discount and therapists will come to the villa.

Villa Kumara

Villa Kumara

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Mirissa

Built in 2013 (and extended to add a third bedroom suite in 2015), Kumara Villa presents a contemporary Sri Lankan aesthetic. The self-contained bedroom suites ideally suit three couples or a couple of families travelling together, as there is ample space in each suite to sleep a child in an extra bed. The living pavilion is very spacious, made even more so by the bi-fold doors that seamlessly blend the indoors with the pool terrace, and share the views. We loved the guest kitchen (it’s also aptly equipped) and spent hours beside the pool watching the birds and monkeys in the trees beyond.

The staff were efficient and organised, whilst also being discreet. The maids have set times in the morning and evening for cleaning the bedrooms, and the whole villa was spotless. The food we ate was good, particularly the Sri Lankan curries and all meals (except the daily ‘Tropical’ breakfast, which is included in the rate) are charged to the guest account on a cost basis. Our only complaint was that the staff were perhaps a little too prompt with meal service, meaning that if we weren’t as prompt at getting to the table, our meals might have been cold.

It takes about 15 minutes to walk to Weligama’s eastern strands although taking a tuk-tuk to the main surfing beach or Mirissa’s pretty sands is a quicker option. There are a couple of bicycles at the villa for guest use, but these are better for exploring the quieter lanes inland.

Kurulla Villa

Kurulla Villa

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Unawatuna

We found Kurulla Villa to be a very tranquil and convenient base to explore the surrounding beaches and fort of Galle, since its excellent out-of-the-way location is still so close to both. It is a great property for families, offering uncluttered spaces and plenty of privacy. The house is surrounded by a large garden which is mainly flat and laid to lawn, making it ideal for children of all ages to tear about in. The garden is enhanced by a wonderful 22m pool (great for exercising) with a wide, sociable, semi-circular, shelved entrance ideal for lounging or sitting half in or half out of the water. This section of the pool is also quite shallow, making it even more suitable for children.

The house boasts a scattering of antique furniture from both Sri Lanka and abroad, however, since there are only a few paintings and pictures on the walls, the overall effect is quite minimal, a feeling highlighted even more as a result of the ceilings being so high. Whilst there is a small selection of CDs and pool toys, there are no DVDs or board games and only a few books, so you might want to bring some of these with you.

The staff of three keeps the house in order and housekeeper Chandana stays in the staff quarters at night. The cook prepares meals from a basic priced menu, although you can also discuss other simple options with him, which Chandana will then price up for you. Guests also have the option of self-catering or, since there are so many good restaurants within such a short distance, eating out in either Unawatuna or Galle.

Kurumba House

Kurumba House

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Tangalle

What a great beachside bolthole; simple, unfussy and most importantly, very relaxed. Minimal clothing, stacks of books and an iPod are all you’re ever going to need to bring with you on a visit to Kurumba House, if that. Its idyllic seaside situation was quiet and peaceful. The good-natured staff team immediately enveloped us on arrival meaning that for most of our stay our feet were nowhere near the ground, though this was due in large part to the surplus of comfy seating and the fact that we could gaze out at the ocean even whilst lying in bed. Tekla cooked enthusiastically (provisions are on guest account) though if you fancy cooking for yourself then the staff will happily go out shopping on your behalf if you furnish them with a list. Tangalle is a very laid back beach resort with few places to go out and eat – there’s only one restaurant along Mawella Beach – but this matches the property’s nature perfectly. Kurumba has very few facilities (no swimming pool, TVs or music systems) however with a beach to explore, a sea to enjoy and a beautiful climate to soak up this is the type of place you visit to escape the distractions of everyday life.

Villa Kya

Villa Kya

Thailand » Koh Samui » Bophut

There’s a freshness and brightness about Villa Kya that’s quite exhilarating. Despite being situated so obviously high above the ocean waves, the villa almost has the feel of a luxury yacht.  We put it down to the gleaming white surfaces, the gently curved design that follows the contours of the hillside, the sail-like roof and, perhaps most of all, the stunningly positioned ‘Moon Terrace’, which rivals the most luxurious of top decks.

There is a tremendous choice of places to relax here.  Inside, our top marks went to the breakfast bar in the kitchen – what a great place to sip a coffee and start the day!  Outside, it was tougher to chose a winner:  On a lounger by the pool? On a bar stool in the pool? Enjoying a quiet read in the shade of the lazing lounge? Sipping a sundowner on the Moon Terrace?  They’re all up there, and they all have the most amazing views to boot.

Bedrooms are simply, stylishly and romantically furnished (especially the master) and beds are very comfortable.  There may not be acres of space in the guest rooms, but the views through the wide glass doors more than make up for that.  The villa only opened for business in August 2012 and everything is new and sparkling. The staff are cheerful and obliging and the owner/managers couldn’t be more helpful.  We highly recommend sampling the talented Khun Kiat’s pomelo salad and Thai chicken curry. Delicious!

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Aranda X2

L'Orchidee Residences - Villa Aranda X2

Thailand » Phuket » Patong

We really enjoyed the beautifully presented Villa Aranda with excellent facilities. The views over Patong are stunning and the location is excellent for restaurants, shopping etc. Being close to Patong is not everyone’s choice but once in the villa you are well away from it. The huge open-plan living area is excellent, with a great terrace offering super views. The staff are good - from the security guards to the maids. This villa is excellent for large families, groups or two families travelling together. A family travelling with parents may appreciate the separate Annex.

We revisited this villa recently, three years after our initial stay, and were impressed to find the villa in immaculate condition, and it offers even better views than before with a new extension added to the first-floor terrace.
