We rented this unit and were very disappointed when we found out it was not a "house" as referred to in the description. It is not beachfront, though it does have access to the beach. I wouldn't swim in the beach as when the tide was out I could see the several septic lines dumping into the ocean fairly close to the shore.
The location isn't that great, Phuket is a difficult town to get around in (rip off taxi drivers) unless you plan ahead. The travel agent recommended was a joke and I'm not convinced they were legitimate due to the fact that they 1)only accept cash payments and insist upon stopping by the condo to pick up the payment; 2)don't have an office in town that matches the name of the agency listed in the book; 3)don't seem to have any connection with the agency for which a web address is provided.
To get to the condo you enter through a back road that is slightly sketchy; doesn't feel safe for a women walking alone at night.
