Davao is a city that is placed in an excellent location for Asia, and a number of good locations can be reached with just a short plane trip from the area to cities all along the coast of mainland Asia or on the many islands around the Philippines. Here are a few vacation villas in Asia that are just a little ways from Davao.

Located just southwest of the Philippines, Indonesia is an Asian country with a vibrant culture. In particular, the Bali region plays host to a number of comfortable rental homes good for small families or couples who are looking to get away from their normal residence without going too far. Sungai Gold Bali, pictured here, is a small but cozy villa with a definite lack of major Western influence in the surrounding area. Everything in the villa is handmade and custom designed, rather than purchased from a catalog, to help give it a more comfortable feel. It can also be rented together with another villa to give extra room for a family, a nice (and relatively rare) option.

Asia does not have as great of a villa travel culture as Europe, but it does have some villas that compete favorably with even some of the nicest French villas. Located just about straight west of Davao is Koh Samui, an island on Thailand that offers a few homes for rent. Waimarie is the nicest of these, a six bedroom villa with room for twelve guests that offers a nice selection of amenities. Children can enjoy the wooden playground, a rock climbing wall, a fort tower, and even a turbo slide, all pieces of equipment unusual for villa rentals. Waimarie is definitely geared towards family vacations, with easy access to the famous Big Buddha Temple and a wide variety of sports and recreation for people of all ages. It is a little on the tourist-y side, but as Asian rentals go, this location is one of the best for people looking to experience our culture, and it isn’t too far from Davao.
