Stay awhile This remodelled 1940s retreat has been one family’s home for almost thirty years. Packed with inspiring artifacts from around the world, it famously fills its visitors with restorative calm. And who couldn’t be set at ease here? The original bungalow has more than doubled in size over the years – now four bedrooms, relaxing rooms inside, and tropical outdoor spaces, mean there’s always a quiet spot. It is walking distance to the Strand and the beach beyond, you’ll soon adopt the epithet coined by friends and family: ‘the sanctuary’. The good life Your host knows many crafts, including interior design, sculpting, and cooking – for her two sons when they visit, or forty-strong parties. She hopes you’ll borrow her four bikes for a ride along the shore, and play a tune on the white upright piano, a relic from her childhood. Under the Eucalyptus tree You’ll spot many touches from Indonesia, but this enlightened living is of the Manhattan Beach variety. The street is calm and quiet, and scented by huge eucalyptus trees. In fact, on your first approach you might think you’re arriving at a plantation home. Inside, original exposed-beam ceilings have survived the two-story development, and the colorful, granite-topped kitchen is well-accustomed to large groups. Twin rooms upstairs are fitted for youthful exuberance, the queen bedroom for a more airy repose, and in the divine master bedroom strike the singing bowl and take a glass of wine out to its private canopied patio.
