About this listing
A large bungalow in a private peaceful location with ample garden space filled with local fruit and coconut trees. Close enough to get to the beaches, restaurants and tourist sites easily, but away from the hustle and bustle.
A large bungalow with live in owners (British), set back from the main road in a small village surrounded by jungle and a paddy field, providing unspoilt peace and privacy. The house has tiled floors with overhead ceiling fans and plenty of cross ventilation. There is a well kept garden at the front of the bungalow which is overlooked by the open veranda. The garden, fruit trees and jungle entice all kinds of wildlife, perfect for bird spotting, or just to sit back and watch the monkeys playing.
The property has a gated entrance, guests have access to one spacious bedroom with en-suite facilities which is accessed via the main living area which you are welcome to use. Guests also have access to the front veranda and garden areas. All other areas of the house are private.

With shops close by selling all the essentials and some of the best beaches and restaurants on the south coast just a short ride away, it really is a great location.
