    Default In South Africa, a Villa With an Ocean View


    Graeme Robinson for The New York Times
    This five-bedroom five-bath furnished home with views of the Indian Ocean is on the market for 29 million South African rand, or $4.1 million. It is in the Zimbali Coastal Resort, a gated community adjacent to the beach town of Ballito, 28 miles north of Durban.

    Some of the furniture has to go but otherwise I give it a 9/10. Want. That bath with view! Swoon.

    Of all the houses that I have ever seen listed on this site, I think this may be my absolute favorite. It just feels right when you look at it, seems comfortable, yet sophisticated. I could live there forever.

    Very nice. Why do they have two large dining tables though?

    Is one right off the kitchen so it is more 'informal breakfast/family time' and the other more formal 'dining roomish-even though it is open plan'?

    Some of the pics are so perfect they almost look computer generated. I do really like it though.

    it's super impersonal and hotel-like. and mcmansiony and golf clubby. not my style at all. that said, it would be an awesome place to rent with a group of friends and spend a holiday in.
