Boasting a peaceful, country ambiance, Apes Hill 19 is one of 20 luxurious semi-detached villas encircling the placid waters of a lake.

Just after the entryway, is the kitchen on the left, conveniently adjoining the dining alcove accommodating eight. This well-designed house’s dining alcove overlooks the living room below, connected to the covered terrace by French doors. Certain to be the place for casual lounging or for sunset drinks, the covered patio has an inviting plunge pool. From here are a few steps down to the manicured lawn leading out to the resort pool and the lake’s edge.

All three spacious bedrooms are en suite with a balcony or patio. A curved staircase to the right of the entryway leads up to 2 of the bedrooms: one is the master suite with a walk-in closet, seating niche and French doors opening onto a private patio with a view of the lush greenery and the lake beyond. Another spacious, en suite bedroom is situated downstairs with direct access to the plunge pool on the covered patio. Just about 10 minutes’ drive to the beaches and conveniences of the West Coast, this villa is just the place for a family or small group to relax.
