Villa Moonraker, also known as IDP MOO, is a 7-bedroom villa located in Sile Bay within minutes of the beach and shopping. This 15,500-sq.-ft. villa with panoramic views is finished with Italian travertine and ceramic tiles, which are complemented by natural stone.
Rooms may be cooled with zoned central air-conditioning (additional costs for living, kitchen and dining areas) or trade breezes, which are aided by colonial fans. All doors and windows are fitted with screens and lined with raw silk and blackout drapes. The interior is tastefully furnished with an eclectic mix of modern European furniture and antiques collected and imported from the owners’ worldwide travels.
The spacious great room is an ideal spot for entertaining with its comfortable Italian sofas, mood lighting, grand piano, glass wall with views, and access to the pool and terrace. The nearby kitchen with breakfast bar is well equipped and opens to a dining table with seating for 12 guests. The library is well stocked (perfect for book lovers), while the entertainment room offers a 60-inch plasma TV, Wii, Xbox, and video games. The wine cellar is temperature controlled.
Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom (1 bathroom has a waterfall shower). Six bedrooms have king-size beds, while 1 bedroom has twin beds (ideal for children). The master suite on the main level features a separate lounge area with bed settee and glass sliders, which open to the terrace. A well-equipped gym and office complete the interior.
A deck with loungers surrounds the swimming pool, which features a seated swim-up bar area, a shallow area for children, and a 12-ft. deep end suitable for diving and scuba tutorials. The nearby dining pavilion partially shades the heated Jacuzzi, which can seat up to 12 guests. The pool can be heated for an additional cost.
The garden incorporates mature fruit, palms, and exotic trees. Pathways and patio areas adorn the grounds. This non-smoking property also comes with beach accessories, an outdoor shower, crib and highchair, a car rental (local license is extra), cable TV, and WiFi.
Villa Moonraker, or IDP MOO comes with house cleaning services six days a week. During the Thanksgiving and December holidays, the villa rents at full occupancy rates regardless of how many bedrooms are used.
