Our first house, Simakakang Villa, has been architecturally designed to take advantage of natural light and to catch the ocean breezes even at the hottest time of the year, the property offers a comfort and tropical open-air living and a beautiful garden with fruit trees you can pick yourself.
With 10 beds and set up for a maximum of 12 people, we are targeting families, groups or couples who want a unique experience. Your own private house, set just back from your own private beach, backing onto your own private jungle. You can choose to employ a local to help, cook, clean and wash, or you can choose to be completely self reliant.
You can also choose to employ a local speedboat and its surfer captain to take you to the various waves around your house or dive some of the more remote reefs, we will assist you with this and give you a list of names, the same speedboat can be used to visit the local market for fresh supplies.
We aim to give you as much freedom as possible, a hands off approach that lets you run your own holiday in this slice of Paradise.
SURF AROUND SIMAKAKANG VILLA
You will have the option to walk down the pristine white sand beach to a couple of waves that can barrel and offer fast rippable walls, but can also be ridden by less experienced surfers. The closest wave holds an annual competition for all the local surfers and the standard of surfing has been excellent, with airs, barrels and high performance surfing shown by more than a handful of locals.
By renting a local canoe, you can open up more waves close by, within 10 minutes you have a variety of lefts and rights, long waves, barrels, down the line walls, peaks holding five times overhead, perfect little peelers that can be ridden as small as waste high, challenging experienced only waves and friendly, beginner waves.
One wave in the area is fantastic for learning and one of our partners learned to surf there. We have chosen to not name and disclose all the waves and conditions in the area, as well as the dive sites, but once you are booked into Villa Simakakang we will have a much more detailed account of where and when to surf and where and when to dive. For a more elaborate description of waves in the Mentawai.
So if you can picture yourself waking up to a sunrise over the Mentawai strait and the Volcanos of Sumatra and a day of diving, fishing, surfing or just lounging around and reading and enjoying your private beach, why not try this unique opportunity to Live the Dream.
