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 getaway 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.
You don't have to be a scuba diver to stay here either, as we welcome all visitors to the island in the Villa.
The Villa's wooden building was constructed in the mid-1930s.
The villa is known on the island as Married Quarters 8 (MQ8) and is one of the last three pre-war 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, and sunbathing. Tropical gardens line the house and offer treats such as papaya, coconuts, lemongrass, mint, lime and bananas, depending on the season.
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.
Next to it is the Seaspray Villa, which can be rented as well.
Each room has access to the air-conditioned 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 the days adventures.
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.
Free Wifi is available, via a fibre network (fair use policy)
In total, there are four bedrooms in the villa, which can sleep between 6 and 8 people. All bedrooms have their own air-conditioning.
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 and a total area of about 50 m².
On the right side of the house is the superior bedroom, which measures approx. 45 m² and comes with its own bathroom.
The standard bedroom is approximately 20 m² in size and shares a bathroom with the economy bedroom.
The economy bedroom is approximately 10 m² and is located on the back of the main corridor opposite the standard bedroom.
The Deluxe Bedroom has a king-size bed and a wardrobe, next to the bright salon, which is separated by frosted glass doors.
The salon overlooking the ocean has a comfortable lounge sofa that can be converted into a double bed. The bathroom is equipped with shower and WC.

Reminiscent of the British colonial years of South East Asia, Seaspray Villa is the former servant’s quarters to the larger Divers Villa located next door, offering a spacious and cool apartment-style bedroom, equipped with kitchen, bathroom and wardrobe space.
High concrete walls and gable roofing keep the villa cool in its tropical environment. Plenty of natural light floods in during the daytime through the wooden glass-paned windows. Its interior is freshly decorated in a modern colonial style and features a quiet outside deck looking right out to sea.
You don't have to be a scuba diver to stay here either, as we welcome all visitors to the island!
