Holiday Rental House
Walatta House is one of the most unique villas on the south coast. The house is partially ‘submerged’ into a hillside that overlooks the Indian Ocean and offers a seamless junction between architecture and nature. It is a superb example of contemporary design. The imperative was to maximise interaction between the indoors and out, to create a sense of openness and space. Thus the landscape is used as an integral design element with an open sided living room offering stunning views across the infinity pool to the ocean, the beaches and the sky. Indoors, too, the design blurs any distinction between house and garden. Courtyards and landscape penetrate the bedrooms and bathrooms, allowing maximum airflow and natural ventilation, and the heat absorbing grass roof also minimises the need fo...Walatta House is one of the most unique villas on the south coast.

Indoors, too, the design blurs any distinction between house and garden. Courtyards and landscape penetrate the bedrooms and bathrooms, allowing maximum airflow and natural ventilation, and the heat absorbing grass roof also minimises the need for air conditioning - although all 3 bedrooms do have that option available. The rectangular infinity pools runs the length of the house, and the secluded beaches are just a few metres down the slope. There are 3 bedrooms - 2 doubles and 1 twin - all ensuite and with air con. The bathrooms are indoor / outdoor and have views onto the gardens. The kitchen and staff house is in a separate building adjacent to the main house.More
