Description: Arasy is a 250m2 luxury eco home set on a 2000m2 lush tropical hillside with a wondrous panorama of sea, sky and forest. To north and south palm fringed white sand beaches stretch off into the distance and a network of coral reefs turn the ocean into a painters palette of turquoise, blues and aquamarines. The house is surrounded by an acre of tropical garden guaranteeing total privacy and peace.
The house is designed to take full advantage of the view and is built on two levels each one with a unique aspect. It’s elevated position also gives it the advantage of a constant gentle breeze, essential during the hot summer days and nights. Arasy’s position above the forest canopy brings the outdoors in and it’s generous sliding doors and windows brings the indoors out. Tropical hard wood verandas rather than corridors connect the rooms, and the kitchen and sitting room are divided by a decked area through which an ancient mangaba tree grows, perfuming the air with it’s sweet scented fruit and flowers.
The house sits in the middle of a hillside garden filled with flowers and trees giving a welcome relief from the sun, as well as an organic kitchen garden for those interested in cooking.
Arasy is composed of two houses – the main house higher up the hillside and the guesthouse further down.
The main house is on two levels. The lower level has an open plan kitchen. Across the deck from the kitchen is the sitting room with sofa and chairs built from recycled boat wood. There is also a small bathroom and a laundry room.
A wooden stairs takes you upstairs to the second level where the bedrooms are located. The master bedroom has a super king size double bed and beautiful vintage furniture. It has an en suite bathroom. On the same level are two more bedrooms – one with two single beds and one with a queen size double bed. Both have en suite bathrooms, over head fans and air conditioning.
The guesthouse is situated further down the hill from the main house, tucked away under mango, banana and avocado trees with snatches of the ocean views through the leaves. It has one bedroom with queen size double bed and a child-size sofa bed, adjoined by an en suite bathroom with shower and loo. The kitchen dining room is fully equipped and is open on two sides allowing wonderful views of the forest and the sea beyond. The guesthouse can sleep two adults and one child.
