Exclusive villas offer the perfect holiday home in Langkawi.
For many people, owning a beautiful private villa on a tropical island sounds like a wondrous dream. And why wouldn’t it? Imagine a laid-back island, surrounded by turquoise waters and inestimable natural wonders. Imagine lush rainforests, plentiful wildlife, picturesque beaches, and endless leisure activities at your fingertips. Imagine luxuriating in the casual, unhurried vibe that defines this island, home to small villages and traditional ways of life, yet also home to a modern infrastructure and some of the finest five-star resorts in the region.
This is Langkawi, one of Malaysia’s most popular holiday island destinations. Now, a very limited number of exclusive villas are being made available, so that you can claim your own personal piece of this amazing island paradise.
A Gorgeous Island Home
After living in Kuala Lumpur for several years, an Australian and German expat couple decided to make Langkawi their home after they joined the Malaysia My Second Home visa programme. As owners and operators of one of the island’s most charming holiday resorts – featuring traditional Malay kampung houses set amid lush gardens and greenery surrounded by peaceful rice paddies and superb views – the couple decided to acquire some additional land adjacent to their resort on which to build a very small number of beautiful two- and three-bedroom private villas.
Two of the villas have already been sold. No more than four will be built, each sited on a plot of land between 1,300 and 1,800 sqm in size. Each of these magnificent villas is privately commissioned, architect-designed, and built to the highest standards, including a spacious infinity-edge pool, lush tropical landscaping, a generous garden area, and two-car covered parking. Villas also boast high-end appliances and fixtures, quality materials and workmanship, and individual electricity, water, and high-speed internet connections.
The villa may be used as a personal holiday home, full-time residence, or an investment, with professional and experienced vacation rental management offered by the expat couple who live on the adjacent property.
If you’re not familiar with this beautiful collection of 99 islands off the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, just an easy one-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur, here is an overview of this holiday wonderland, one of the most popular vacation destinations in Malaysia.
- UNESCO Global Geopark since 2007
- Duty-free island since 1987
- Modern infrastructure with excellent roads
- Airport newly expanded and refurbished in 2018
- Over 275 non-stop domestic and international flights to Langkawi weekly
- Tourism arrivals increased over 8% year-on-year in 2016
- Hotel occupancy rates from 75 to 95% (The Edge Property, 2016)
- Top 20 Beaches in Asia – Tanjung Rhu, Langkawi (CNN Travel, 2017)
- Well-known national and international events held in Langkawi each year
The villas are located on a serene, spacious plot of land near the centre of Langkawi, the main island in the archipelago, making it a convenient location to nearly everything on the island. Breathtaking sunsets are a common occurrence here, and each villa is situated to take full advantage of this, boasting incredible west-facing views from the pool and veranda.
The ideal owners are those who wish to combine their desire for a high-quality vacation or retirement villa with the opportunity for sound property investment. For those who may be unaccustomed to year-round warmth and sunshine, these villas are perfect as a terrific tropical retreat from harsh northern winters, or indeed any time of the year, all while providing a stream of passive income through vacation rental when not in residence. Of course, you may be like the expat couple who oversee the property – they fell in love with Langkawi and decided to make it their full-time residence!
As the villas are privately commissioned, construction begins upon sale, and the villas are priced attractively and offer excellent value. Prices are RM1,880,000 (approximately US$447,000) for the two-bedroom villa, and RM2,210,000 (US$526,000) for the three-bedroom villa. The total cost includes a near turn-key luxury property, inclusive of a full kitchen, lighting, major appliances, air-conditioning, landscaping, and more, with owners needing only add the loose furnishings of their choosing. Whether you decide to live here full-time, use the villa as a holiday home, or enjoy a stream of passive income from year-round rentals when not being personally enjoyed, these exclusive Langkawi villas represent an uncommon and outstanding opportunity to own a personal piece of paradise on this beautiful tropical island.
