32 Middle Street Reviews

Once the doors of 32 Middle Street were closed behind us we felt instantly at home. The property felt secluded and its courtyard swimming pool and rooftop sundeck offered plenty of scope for relaxation. Indoors, we loved curling up on the squashy sofas in the living room and admiring the Asian artwork, owners’ photographs and interesting reading material that personified the property. Each room is large, although the master bedroom with its balcony overlooking the pool and sumptuous en-suite bathroom is easily the most exclusive. The house is well set up for families (best for older children), groups of friends and couples who will love the seclusion and privacy. The open-plan design of the two downstairs bedrooms, with the bathroom forming part of the room, albeit behind a concrete screen wall, might not suit everyone.

The helpful villa staff can prepare meals at cost price with prior notice, and Marloni’s delicious rice and curry was a real treat. The villa’s good management team can also assist with local travel arrangements.

Highlights

This is such a private house and so homely too! The water jet in the swimming pool offers the perfect workout in a pretty courtyard setting. Sun worshippers will adore the sun-sozzled rooftop deck. The house scores points for its location, with so many restaurants, shops, cafes and attractions on the doorstep, not to mention the run of the fort as well.

Surprises

Whilst some may like the seclusion of the property, others may find it a little too enclosed since the only ‘views’ are of the bamboo covered walls and the red tiled rooftops of neighbouring buildings. Expect a little noise from the school across the road, although this is only on weekday mornings. The open-plan design of the two bedrooms on the ground floor might not be agreeable to some and all three bedrooms are very minimally furnished. Note that WiFi only tends to work in the living areas due to the thickness of the walls, and beware of the concrete floors which can get very slippery when wet!
