At the end of October 2018, Extra Divers Christmas Island officially opened the Divers Villa, a newly refurbished English colonial house on the stunning rocky coastline of Christmas Island. The Divers Villa is located in the heart of the settlement on Christmas Island, in a quiet environment. Several restaurants, shops and a supermarket are within walking distance. The Extra Divers centre can be reached by only 8-10 minutes’ walk along the coastal path.
The villa is the perfect accommodation for a romantic weekend by the sea or as a holiday home for a group. Of course, individual, private rooms are as well rented, sharing a common kitchen and dining area. For an additional 5th bedroom or larger groups, the Sea Spray Villa next to the Divers Villa can be rented.
The wooden building was constructed in the mid-1930s. Next to it there is a service house (the Sea Spray Villa), which is connected by a covered walkway and can be rented as well. The villa is known on the island as Married Quarters 8 (MQ8) and is one of the last three prewar bungalows built by the Christmas Island Phosphate Company. The house was newly renovated in the summer of 2018 and decorated in a modern style. Guests enjoy a wonderful sea view all year round.
A large front and back yard stretches around the villa, with garden, outdoor facilities for BBQs and sunbathing. Tropical gardens line the house and offer treats such as papaya, coconuts, lemongrass, mint, lime and bananas, depending on the season. Each room has access to the open living, dining and kitchen area. A large colonial-style dining table seats eight people. In the middle of the large room there are two sofas for a get together after diving.
The kitchen is about 20 m² and is located next to the large living room. It is equipped with modern appliances and utensils, including a gas stove, electric cooker, coffee machine, toaster, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and microwave. In addition to the common areas in the villa, there are also a variety of outdoor garden areas ideal for dining, sunbathing or bird watching. Garden furniture, barbecue and sunbeds are also available.
In total, there are four bedrooms in the villa, which can sleep between 6 and 8 people:
The deluxe bedroom with living room is located at the front of the house, next to the living and dining area and has a private bathroom. It has a king-size bed and a wardrobe, next to the bright salon, which is separated by frosted glass doors. The saloon overlooking the ocean has a comfortable lounge sofa that can be converted into a double bed. The bathroom is equipped with shower and WC. The deluxe bedroom with living room and bathroom is about 50 m².
On the right side of the house is the approx. 45 m² large superior bedroom with its own bathroom. The room is furnished with a king-size bed, wardrobe, desk and armchair. The sofa can also be converted into a double bed for children or additional guests.
The standard bedroom is approximately 20 m² in size and features a king-size bed, a closet and a desk. The standard bedroom has access to a modern bathroom across the hall. This bathroom is shared with the fourth bedroom.
The approximately 10 m² large economy bedroom is located on the back of the main corridor opposite the standard bedroom. It has a queen size bed and an antique wardrobe shelf. Guests in the economy bedroom share the bathroom with the standard bedroom.
