If you find yourself coming to Thailand seeking authenticity, it doesn't get more genuine then the Doi Saket Villa. Established at the end of a gated community, amongst rice fields, is a beautiful four-bedroom teak wood home. With views of the famous Doi Saket temple, mountains, and rice fields, this home is set in the most perfect location.
As you drive through the opened iron gate, the cement driveway, with broken colorful tiles, leads you to the back of the house. The yard is lush with vegetation and palm trees while manicured bushes line the driveway. From the front of the house you can easily see the temple in the distance and if you make your way to the back of the house there is an exquisite teak wood sala for reading or taking in the spectacular surrounding views.
Walking up the front staircase to the house is a porch with built-in benches that comfortably seats up to six people. When you and your guests wake up to have a fresh cup of coffee or want to wind down after a long day this intricately detailed front porch is the ideal spot for relaxing.
All four bedrooms are open, bright, simple, and classic with Thai art decor adorning the walls. Three of the bedrooms are located upstairs, while one guest bedroom is downstairs. The master bedroom is located upstairs and is the most attractive bedroom above the rest. This room oozes with romance the moment you notice the King-size bed. Made entirely of teak wood this four-poster bed frame has a canopy hanging above and two large windows surrounding. As the largest bedroom it also come furnished with a built-in wardrobe closet and large vanity space and mirror with an intricately designed wood frame. Other added bonuses to the master bedroom are an ensuite bathroom and small terrace that overlooks the rice fields behind the home. The last two guest bedrooms upstairs are both designed with Thai tapestry decor on the walls, Jack and Jill bathroom, and teak wood bed frames. Located on the second left of the hall is the first guest bedroom with a twin size bed and small vanity. On the right side of the hall is the second guest bedroom with a Queen-size bed, area rug, two built-in closets with ample space, and three large windows with one behind the bed overlooking endless views of rice fields and mountains. Lastly on the ground floor, off the kitchen, is the third guest bedroom with a King-size bed, antique dresser, stereo, phone, and a semi-ensuite shared guest bathroom.
All bathrooms are designed with a sage, tan, and rose colored theme with a toilet, wash basin, traditional Thai shower, and granite countertops. In the master bedroom the ensuite bathroom is the largest and has a Jacuzzi bathtub with shower head attached near faucet. The Jack and Jill bathroom has a large shower while the last guest bathroom on the ground floor has an additional urinal for the men.
Designed with a tile floor the dining room is located next to the kitchen and down a few steps from the living room. The dining room gives a more casual appeal with a floral chaise, small television, desk, and table that seats up to four. A nice touch to the dining room is the sliding glass back door with views of the beautiful garden and teak wood sala.
This Thai-Western style kitchen is located past the living room and adjoined with the dining room on the ground floor. The kitchen itself is small, but with an open layout connecting to the dining room it feels like one large room. With teak wood columns, cactus designed tiles on the wall, and a bar top this makes for a cute, charming space. Although it's not a fully functional kitchen per se, it does come equipped with a stovetop and two burners, dual sink, refrigerator, water boiler, flatware, dishware, and glasses. Another added bonus is a laundry machine located on the back wall of the kitchen.
The living room is one of the best features of this house as it's designed with an authentic Thai feel and gorgeous decor. This room is elegant, yet casual and furnished with traditional antique Thai furniture including; three chairs, two couches on either side of room, and coffee table. For the modern appeal the living room has recess lighting and tall, large windows throughout, and polished hardwood floors.
