Situated just 300 metres from Seminyak's Beach, shops, restaurants and nightlife, the staffed Eshara Villas (formally known as C2 Residence) present sleek designer-chic and pared-back luxe. This versatile property can be rented as three independent and totally private two- and three-bedroom villas, or simply push back the walls to create five and eight bedroom combinations sleeping up to 16. Each villa has its own swimming pool (with pool fence available), a glamorous living and dining space and an integrated kitchen, while all bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, king-size beds, dressing areas and TV/DVD players. The three villas are set in private, walled tropical gardens complete with frangipani trees, coconut palms, flowering plants, sun loungers and pool decks.
Eshara 1 consists of two pavilions built in an L-shape around a green-tiled swimming pool surrounded by wooden decking and set within a garden filled with coconut palms, frangipani trees, tropical plants and flowers. One pavilion houses the large living, dining and kitchen area, the master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms, while the second pavilion houses the remaining guest bedroom.
With hardwood floors and a soaring ceiling, Eshara 1's living and dining room is a massive space exuding taste and elegance. Cooled by ceiling fans and with glass doors running the length of one wall, the room is bathed in natural light. Furnishings include a long wooden dining table for 12, huge comfortable sofas and a giant, ornately carved rocking horse. At one end is an open-plan kitchen equipped for guest use.
Eshara 2 comprises an L-shaped pavilion housing a combined living, dining and kitchen area plus the master bedroom, with a second bedroom accessed via the garden. Outdoors the pool and pool deck sits amidst a small tropical garden providing shade, colour and a sense of place.
The high-pitched roof of Eshara 2's living area and the vast glass doors on both sides only add to the volume of an already spacious room that boasts a large sofa, elegant marble floors and a dining table for eight. At one end is an open-plan kitchen equipped for guest use.
Step out of the living quarters onto a pool deck that runs alongside the inviting green-tiled pool, with sun loungers and a colourful garden filled with tropical plants.
Eshara 3 comprises two pavilions built in an L-shape around a tropical garden and a green-tiled swimming pool. A large and very comfortable living, dining and kitchen area and the master bedroom take up one pavilion while two guest bedrooms take up the other. Outdoors the pool deck is trimmed with coconut trees and tropical plants, including the ubiquitous frangipani, providing shade, colour and a pleasant sense of place.
Elegantly finished with marble floors and native Indonesian timbers in all the right places, furnished with a huge L-shaped sofa and a dining table for ten, and fitted with an open-plan kitchen equipped for guest use, this all-purpose living space is a great place to unwind, relax, dine, play or be entertained. With vast sliding glass doors and high-pitched ceilings, the room is bathed in natural light.
The coconut palms and colourful plants in the villa's private garden put you firmly in the tropics, while the pool and its deck - topped with sun loungers and a couple of sofas - and the large, cushioned relaxation pavilion, provide a choice of shade or sun throughout the day.
A truly stunning eight-bedroom villa – a rare find in central Seminyak - can be created in a flash by opening up the gardens between Eshara 1, 2 and 3. Not only does this combination provide eight generous bedrooms, but guests will also have three sparkling swimming pools, bags of garden space and a feast of living and dining areas to choose from.
