Little Mannao Villa
Recently completed in May 2015, Little Mannao is a brand new home parallel to the rice fields of Kerobokan. Located on a small, quiet lane amongst other newly finished villas, Little Mannao is the perfect rental destination for a group of eight looking to be close to the trendy hub of Seminyak, yet far enough away to feel like you’ve escaped the buzzing crowds. Designed in such a way that embraces the luxury of island-style living, this home features open-air living spaces, chic interior design, a gracious staff of four and all the amenities one would expect from a five-star accommodation. Available for rent as either a three or four bedroom private residence, Little Mannao is a dream summer home at a price that can’t be beat!
The Master bedroom
Located closest to the living area is Little Mannao’s master suite, a warm and inviting space with views out to the swimming pool. A king-size bed sits in the middle of the room, enveloped in shear canopy netting and high-quality linens for a luxurious sleeping experience. Double wardrobes and vanities are located on one end of the room, leading to an enclosed room that houses a sunken bathtub and shower alcove.
Connected to the master suite is a baby nursery, which can also be set up as a children’s room with a pair of twin beds or an adult’s room with one large king. For families travelling with young ones though, this room is a great option for you, complete with a crib, books, toys and a reading chair. Air conditioning and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, sink and WC are also available for guests of this multi-purpose room.
The third and fourth guest bedrooms are located in a standalone structure furthest away from the main living pavilion. These rooms are identical in layout, except for the presence of a king bed in one and two twin beds in the other. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with an indoor wardrobe, sink and shower, along with an outdoor shower located in a secluded garden that connects the two suites.
Upon entering the front gate of Little Mannao, you are greeted by wide double doors that lead you into the main living and dining room, which is housed in a traditional Joglo-inspired structure. On the lefthand side is a cozy sofa lounge with duel reading lamps and a dramatic black and white painting of a tribal girl. Adjacent to this hangout area is the central dining room table, bordered by six to eight plush chairs and floor length canopy curtains. On the other side of the living pavilion is a fully-equipped kitchen, featuring an oven, stovetop, refrigerator, cooking utensils and cutlery.
As you move closer to the pool and garden you will find another sofa lounge, this one open to the outside on three sides and the perfect spot to laze around after a dip in the water. Alfresco dining is a must at Joglo Mannao, especially with its inviting outdoor dining table adorned with blue-cushioned benches and colourful throw pillows.
Outdoor & pool area
Running the length of the villa’s garden is a beautiful 11 meter pool, flanked on one side by a row of four sun chairs and on the other by a wall of towering green foliage. The pool begins with shallow steps near the outdoor living room, and gradually gets deeper until the end is met by a thatched-roof gazebo and daybed. Complete with mosquito netting and reading lights, this gazebo beckons you to spend your day here alternating between long siestas and getting lost in a good vacation read.
