Villa Lomchoy has great potential for those looking for a secluded but stylish retreat. It’s a fair distance from town but its cliff-top location is unbeatable in terms of privacy and stunning vista. We loved the living spaces, particularly outdoors around the amazing pool terrace – this has to be one of the best sunset views on the island.

The villa’s interior design is minimalist but shows both good taste and a sense of humour – we liked the oversized wooden teapot set on a bed of white pebbles on the downstairs landing and the old photo of the Shanghai Bund in the study. Other design pieces, whether the over-sized gourds or the antique bow and arrow add both a sense of fun and a refinement to the property.

Bedrooms are comfortable and full of natural light and we enjoyed the unique artwork on the walls and the individual colour schemes.  The owners have young children but the villa isn’t particularly ideal for families with straying toddlers, due to the steepness of the garden and the drop from the infinity pool – with due care however it shouldn’t pose a problem. Service from the house-keeper was friendly and helpful although her limited English made communication slightly complicated.

Highlights

The sunset views are magnificent – the villa faces west so you can watch the sun sink into the horizon from just about everywhere – but from the pool with a chilled drink in hand it’s unbeatable. We love the architecture, the spaciousness and of course the unspoiled views of the ocean.

Surprises

We thoroughly enjoyed the villa but thought a little more furniture (chairs) was needed in the bedrooms and the TV room, where there’s only a smallish sofa.
