Villa Kyalami, also known as MA KYA, is a contemporary 2-bedroom villa located in Central within minutes of the beach and shopping. This grand, fully renovated villa once housed gala parties attended by famous celebrities.
The elegant main level has cool terrazzo floors and features a comfortable, spacious great room with a media room and dining area. Along the harbor side is a long veranda with umbrellas, tables, and chairs for outdoor dining. On the main level is the large air-conditioned kitchen, which is equipped with a professional refrigerator-freezer and a large collection of professional cooking equipment.
On the other side of the main level are 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, each with a king-size bed. The large master suite has hand-carved woodwork and a marble bathroom with a bathtub and shower. Just off this suite is a small patio with a hot tub overlooking the harbor. A gate connects this patio with the main veranda. The second, smaller bedroom has a king-size bed, ensuite bathroom, and cable TV.
A staircase leads down to the garden and pool level, which is enclosed by tall mango, banana, and palm trees. The pool deck is furnished with cushioned chaise lounges, tables, umbrellas, as well as pool floats, a small fridge, and gas grill. Villa Kyalami has an on-site manager, Edward Smith, aka "Smitty," who lives in the lower (garden) level of the property with Kyalami's house dog, a well-mannered chocolate Labrador named Max. Should you have any maintenance problems or questions, Kyalami's resident manager will be happy to assist you at any time.
Also at Kyalami are a pen of local tortoises outside the kitchen door which Smitty cares for, and two outside cats on the property which are never permitted inside.
This non-smoking property also has an automatic generator, WiFi and high-speed Internet on east side of property, a charcoal barbecue and beach chairs. This villa requires a 7-night minimum stay during Thanksgiving and a $500 security deposit.
Villa Kyalami, or MA KYA, comes with mid-week house cleaning service. Ask your villa specialist for detail. During the Thanksgiving and December holidays, the villa rents at full occupancy rates regardless of how many bedrooms are used. Photos compliments of Don Hebert.+ More
