What is ?
The Bunker is a unique studio designed by Mike Xavier and crafted by himself and Alexander James. It is a beautiful harmony of purpose and form. The Bunker is about the people… how they use the space, and was built to encourage flexibility and change depending on the mood.
The kitchen is a highlight in itself featuring a unique sliding countertop which can be moved to open up the living space when not in use.
Small rooms and dwellings set the mind on the right path, large ones cause it to go astray.

“We had a terrific stay in Mike’s gorgeous studio. The place is a dream: everything is well-thought-out and we felt right at home. The view on the marina is really enjoyable, especially at night.”
“We had a great time staying in the Bunker. The main murphy bed is ultra comfortable, better than most free standing beds. Super stylish and functional. The parking in the ground floor garage is easy with direct access to an elevator right up to the flat. If you surf, Capbreton beaches are 5 min away and Hossegor 10 min and super fun powerful beach break. I hope to get back there next year for an entire month.”Michael
“The bunker was the perfect location. Just minutes walk to loads of great restaurants and the center of Hossegor. The beaches are also just a few minutes away. The bunker was a breath of fresh air, modern and stylish decor with everything one would need for a comfortable stay. Extremely safe and just simply an overall great experience!”
