We have just returned from this Villa and I am pleased to say everything about it was absolutely fantastic. There was maid service every day which made life alot more easier and gave us more time and pleasure to enjoy this extraordinary Villa. She changed the beds and towels regularly.
The Villa itself is exceptionally large and could easily sleep four couples as all the main bedrooms had their own bathrooms. When we arrived at the Villa, the place was spotless and easily noticable that it is well cared for and looked after. The location of the Villa is right next to Phuket riding school which allows you to view the horses running around in the early hours of the morning.
Brian, the owner was very quick in response to all emails about everything we wanted to know and lives very close by to the Villa to sort out any problems that occur if they should arrise. We had a problem with the shower one day and Brian was there within five minutes of calling him to address the problem. He arranged a workman to fix the problem and the shower was back working within the hour. Absolutely brilliant service.
The Villa has a very well maintained which is extremely beautiful with a wide variety of different shrubs and trees to make the garden area, including the swimming pool, very private and secluded. The garden overlooked the hill which has the big Buddah which is very famous Phuket attraction. The swimming pool itself was exceptionally clean and also very, very large. It was very nice to get into the pool as it was always so warm to get into it.
All in all, we had a very enjoyable holiday staying in this Villa and I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit this area. Everything was perfect!!! Thank you Brian. :)

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour dans cette villa. La maison correspond à toutes les descriptions de l'annonce et offre même davantage de faciltés. Le jardin et la piscine sont absolument magnifiques et parfaitement entretenus. La villa est chaleureusement et entièrement équipée ( electroménager, fer à repasser, produit d'entretien, vaisselle complete, linge de maison etc... tout y est!) la femme de ménage entretient très bien la maison. La villa se situe dans un quartier entouré de jolies maisons, c'est très calme et la rue est très peu fréquentée, nous avons vraiment apprécié cette tranquilité.... Brian le propritaire nous a accueilli avec une véritable gentillesse, il est présent et disponible en cas de besoin, le frigo était approvisionné à notre arrivée, une délicate attention qui est rare dans une location. Notre consommation d'électricité a été inferieur, à notre deposit et Brian nous avez préparé une enveloppe pour nous rendre le surplus d'argent, tout est parfaitement clair et honnete! La villa a un emplacement très pratique à 5 min du port de Rawai, à 10min de Kata. Toute les commodités sont à proximité. Je recommande vivement cette villa !!!! Merci à vous Brian....

The Villa is located at a very good place, close to the main road (300m), the Beaches (400m the closest but ugly one, 3 km a very very nice one) and to many very good restaurants in Rawai and Nai Harn. However, do not think you can walk, you do need a car anyway but that is very cheap.
The house is somehow european style, not that kind of chique Balinese-Thai-style and a little bit older (10 yrs., fully renovated 5 yrs. ago) but kept in excellent condition. It has three bigger and one smaller bedroom with aircon and one smaller without. Most bedrooms have adjacent bathroom with shower, however, no bathtub at all (but a big pool!).
It is used frequently and that is good because it guarantees that all the amendments and things are really working. If anything goes wrong the owner, Brian, wo lives close, is extremely fast in getting it fixed. He really takes care of anything there and keeps the house, the garden, the pool in very good conditions and is extremely nice and takes care if you want but lets you have all privacy you want / need.
The pool is very big and very very nice due to its enormous size and layout. There is a big garden with lots of space for children to play and a very nice sala where you can have a drink or dine in the garden. There is also a very big terrace.
There is always a nice wind, if too hot you can use the aircons that all do their job very good.
Kitchen is fully equipped (even with dishwasher and laundry if you need that), they really have everything you can think of.
There are maids coming every day that do the dishwashing and clean the house. They can also do the laundry for little money.
We were there with our son (2 yrs. old) and grandparents and all had a very good time.
The only flip side was a lot of construction noise from the neighborhood nearby but that will end soon, I guess and it's nothing the owner can do anything about. There is a road next to the house and sometimes cars go there, sometimes horses from the riding club but nothing that disturbs. Of course Mosquitoes will anoy you, you are in Thailand, so take repellent with you!
The only thing that could be improved is maybe the lighting concept inhouse, which does not produce a nice atmosphere (energy saving bulbs, cold light, few lamps, dark walls and ceilings) but this is really no big problem, you will be outside anyway most of your time.
...far away from the crowded tourist places !
We were 2 couples and 1 baby ( age : 14 months). This place is wonderful and relaxing. A car is necessary to travel all around the island. The welcome was great and the owner is friendly : we arrived late and he helped us to find some food! There is a supermarket not too far from the house which is very practical. This is located in the South of the island and there are many restaurants in the surrounds.

This was a great house for our family reunion of all ages. The pool and garden are wonderful for entertaining and the house is a good size so you do ger some privacy. The house is very private and in a great location to explore the rest of the island. We had motorbikes instead of cars and found it easy to get around by taxi or public buses. There are shops with basic items within walking distance and some great seafood restaurants at rawai beach only 5 min drive away. can't wait to get back there again very soon.
