About this listing
For nature lovers - Great beach home with quiet beach and coral reef just in front. Magical place.
Our home on Flores is located in Waecicu Bay, right on the beach on 4300 m2 private grounds. 5 double bedrooms with private bathrooms, large living, yoga deck, BBQ area by the beach, boat with captain, crystal clear sea full of coral just in front.
Pazolle'e means 'clean' in Bajo language and Waecicu means ' clean water'.
This beautiful open villa is situated on a hill with 70 meters sandy beachfront on Waecicu Beach. Its design has been made to fit the slope which has resulted in a unique asymmetrical design. For building material we used palm wood native to the surrounding area, the stones from our own land and Alang Alang for our roof, which has been modeled after traditional Flores houses. Our furniture is made of driftwood which we found on beaches at outlying island or washed ashore at Waecicu. The house is a perfect fit in its natural surroundings -.the almost empty beach, the Flores Sea and the lush hills behind - this is the ultimate island getaway.
All bedrooms have king size beds, good mosquito nets and spacious en-suite bathrooms and verandas. The right and left wing are connected by large common living- and dining area and open kitchen. At night when the moon lights up the trees, the bay and surrounding islands and when you hear the sounds of the Gecko and night birds, you sense the magic of Waecicu Bay.
Sleeps 10 guests (space for 4 more persons in the Beach Bungalow and Hillside Bungalow - when free - at additional cost )

Waecicu Bay is situated in the buffer zone of Komodo National Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of the famous Komodo dragons, the largest lizard in the world. Situated in the Coral Triangle, the diving in the park area has been called the best in the world. In Labuan Bajo diving operators offer PADI courses, rental equipment and can take you on dives with professional guides to the most spectacular diving spots like Manta Point and . For those who don't dive snorkelling is the next best thing because there is an abundance of spectacular shallow water coral reefs.
