When the owners of Villa can Baba, a beautiful, bungalow-style villa in Ibiza first bought the property, the building resembled a neglected, run-down bunker and did not have much of the charm it boasts today. The architectural team Kabaz took care of the ugly duckling and turned it into a beautiful swan, which sits atop a hill on the west coast of this hip island and overlooks the picturesque town of Sant Antoni de Portmany. Today we take a look at this impressive coastal villa.
The exterior design of the house is clean and simple, and its pure white facade fits perfectly with the green vegetation of the environment and the blue sky of the Mediterranean region. After its radical structural restoration, renovation and transformation, the villa now offers every luxury that the holiday homes on the island of Ibiza are known for. It includes several stylishly furnished bedrooms, a large open plan kitchen, modern bathrooms, a fancy pool, several covered terraces, a spacious outdoor area and a breathtaking view.
With its pleasant climate, Ibiza is famous for its outdoor, open-air lifestyle, and Villa Can Baba is designed to take advantage of this. In this comfortable lounge area, canopy will protect your from the sun on the hottest summer days, creating a pleasant and relaxed environment. Just a few steps away is the pool, where you can swim while still enjoying the magnificent views of the surrounding nature. After a relaxing sunbath, wander over to the covered terrace on the right of the picture for an outdoor sunset dinner. Life can be so beautiful!
Inside the villa, the surroundings are just as impressive. The designers have combined modern style with natural materials and a good pinch of traditional Ibiza charm. Cement floors, stone walls, Moroccan accents and exotic antiques make the environment luxurious and unique, as seen here in one of the bedrooms.
The Villa Can Baba sleeps up to twelve people and is divided into a main building and an annexe building, which in earlier times was the garage. There are several porches and verandas that are ideal for life outside. The design emphasizes comfort and natural. Warm earth tones are combined with natural stone, cosy wood and oriental accents for a truly restful vacation home.
Here's a look at one of the other five bedrooms. Again, the eclectic mix of pure elegance, natural flair and relaxation is perfectly executed. Lots of white, high-quality materials, warm wood and refined accessories provide a very special ambience.
Here we see one of the five bathrooms, all of which reflect the style of the house perfectly. Again we see the use of natural materials and a good mix of rustic simplicity and modern minimalism. The different grey and beige tones make the room quiet, calm, noble and natural and are, moreover, wonderfully easy to clean.
The open kitchen is the heart of the villa with its modern kitchen island and large dining table. From here, large glass doors lead to the covered terrace and then directly to the pool and the rest of the outdoor space. The style of the kitchen corresponds with the design concept of the rest of the house.
