Property type villa

About the property


The Lake House is a modern, spacious and beautifully furnished 3 BR villa. Located beside one of the lakes in the gated Samaan Grove development, it is ideally centrally located. Everywhere is within 10 minutes drive - the airport, Scarborough, popular beaches like Store Bay, Pigeon Point, Mt. Irvine Bay , fast food outlets, local restaurants specializing in local foods, fine dining restaurants, and supermarkets.

The property is beautifully maintained, quiet and peaceful, allowing guests to relax and enjoy their stay with no concerns about their privacy or security. On entering the villa, you will immediately appreciate the quality of the design, construction, and finishes, and the striking and contemporary decor. The unique lakeside location allows you enjoy a totally serene and restful environment as you relax on the porch or the pool deck. The open plan design allows easy flows from the Kitchen and Great Room through large doorways to the porch and the pool deck and pool. No detail has been overlooked for your comfort, relaxation and enjoyment.

The Lake House is uniquely positioned alongside one of the lakes in the Samaan Grove development, allowing guests to enjoy the serene waterside atmosphere and scenery. Nature lovers will enjoy seeing the local bird life around the lake as they feed and play in and around the water. As the lake's water is not stagnant and the lake is full of fish, there is never a mosquito problem due to the proximity to the lake.

Every modern convenience is provided in the villa - the Great Room is air-conditioned as well as the bedrooms, and there are ceiling fans everywhere when natural comfort is desired. The high-end kitchen boasts granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances include side/side fridge with ice maker, smooth top electric range, combination range hood/microwave, and dishwasher. The kitchen island and eating bar with bar stools facilitate drinks, snacks and casual meals while staying at the center of activities. Of course, a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board are provided for your laundry convenience.

The pool, pool deck and porch all look out onto the lake, which provides a wonderful ambiance for kicking back and relaxing, while the pool and pool deck allows the energetic ones to enjoy their water activities. The pool's maximum 4 1/2' depth makes it safe for children and non-swimmers alike. A large gas barbeque grill encourages outdoor cooking and al fresco dining on the porch or pool deck. Entertainment options include DirecTV satellite TV service with a 46” flat screen TV together with Blu Ray DVD player and Home Theater System in the Great Room. Free WiFi internet access is provided. The Master Bedroom also has a flat screen TV so Mom & Dad can enjoy their own favorite TV shows in privacy. The feeling of luxury is reinforced by the spacious and beautifully finished bedrooms as well as the modern European-style bathrooms with walk-in shower stalls with rainshower heads and frameless glass panels.

The spaciousness of the villa will especially please larger groups. At over 2000 square feet in interior space, it means that everyone has ample space to spread out, so no one will feel constricted at any time - whether you are in the bedrooms, bathrooms, Great Room, or on the porch or pool deck.

KINDLY NOTE : No Man's Land is currently inaccessible until further notice.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at the Lake House and I thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation. Sitting outside and taking in the view and all the wildlife (Birds hunting for fishes and caiman soaking in the sun) was very soothing and relaxing. It was also fun swimming in the pool and still being able to enjoy the view. My only drawback is that even though the pool guy came, he did not clean the bird mess around the pool area. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed my stay.

The house is also fully equipped with everything you will need (eg, utensils, towels, soap). Just walk with food and you are good to go. The reservation team was very friendly and very prompt in any answering my queries. I had no hiccups from my first inquiry to my departure.

Would I come again? YESSSS

I expected this villa to be as beautiful as the pictures but when I arrived, I realized that the photos does this home little justice! There's so much more to this beautiful lake house than can be captured in photos! My stay was absolutely perfect! The spacious house fit our group comfortably and we never felt crowded. I will book again in a heartbeat!
