At 400 sq mtrs inside- build area and set in 1020 sq mtrs of grounds, it has lots of space to enjoy. The house itself has 6 bathrooms, 4 of which have direct swim access into the pool - yes, you read correctly, you can swim out of the bathrooms directly into the pool!

The main bedroom is 6 mtrs x 6 mtrs in size and the 3 guest bedrooms are approx. 4 mtrs x 5 mtrs!

There is a separate PC room with internet connection and satellite TV and a double carport, accessed through a remote control gate. The tropical garden has a fully computerised sprinkler system.
The pool itself, which is 15 mtrs x 13 mtrs, has a cleaning system which uses a salt water system (no chemicals) which is about 10% of the strength of sea water, is anti-bacterial and is computer controlled to ensure a perfect, yet environmentally-friendly, swimming experience. The 12 mtr long beach runs along one side of the swimming pool.
The area in which this villa is situated is unspoilt and natural with many palm trees. The neighbouring villas are all top-of-the-range and there is no traffic noise. The nearest towns are Pattaya and Jomtien, both about 15 minutes drive away.

Nearby facilities include the international Regent School (2 kms), the Asian University (8 km), the Bira race circuit (12 km), Lake Maprachan (10 minutes drive away) and an Elephant Farm (2 km).
Pattaya and Jomtien are popular holiday destinations. They used to be fishing villages, and fishermen still go out from the harbours and beaches, but there are also plenty of facilities for everyone on shore.
There is no shortage of shops selling most things in Pattaya. Apart from the hypermarkets: two Tesco-Lotus stores, two Big-C stores and Carrefour, there are several air-conditioned shopping malls with a wide variety of shops. Numerous local markets sell food as well as a wide range of other household and personal goods.
There are several golf courses around. The Phoenix Golf Club and Pattaya Country Club are both very well patronised. Apart from numerous restaurants and bars, it is easy to arrange to go out to the islands, to go diving and snorkelling, or just swimming.
The Chinese museum, near the University, houses some of the terracotta warriors from Xian, China; one of the few places outside China where they can be seen. There are also many other interesting local and Chinese artifacts on display.
Nearby is a 130 m tall, 70 m wide Buddha image in gold, carved into the side of a hill. It is the largest Buddha image in Thailand. Khao Chee Chan, or Buddha Mountain, has an interesting history. During the Vietnam War, the Thai navy was permitted to mine the mountain for stone to be used at nearby U-Tapao Airfield, then an American base.
There are numerous Wats (temples) and there are also several mosques and churches in the area.
