“More than Words”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in November 2016

Where do I start...Girls trip to Thailand!! Staying here was AMAZING! From the moment we were picked up at the airport by the Driver Meo which was organised by our hosts Kathy & Ian right up until we were dropped off to the airport coming home! Everything was a breeze! Kathy & Ian made sure we knew our surroundings by taking us on a tour around the local area, they provided a mobile with phone numbers for Taxi drivers as well as their details in case of emergency.
The Villa itself was "MORE THAN WORDS" ...so BEAUTIFUL and RELAXING. We have had so many family and friends as us about our accommodation here and we are will in AWE when being asked.
Thank you so much Kathy & Ian :)
Just might see you again soon

Many thanks

“Kathy and Ian are Awesome!”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This was the best vacation I have taken in a while! Kathy and Ian made everything from booking the villa to the transport back to the airport when we were heading back to the states seamless! They went above and beyond by taking us to the grocery store upon our arrival to get some breakfast foods for our stay! They were attentive and available whenever we needed, and made our stay so enjoyable!. I highly recommend renting this villa as it is beautiful!, spaceous and in a quiet area. The Villa is a bit hard to find for most cabs/tuk tuk drivers, but the contacts that Kathy and Ian provided are familiar with the area. its close enough that you can take a walk to the beach, but far enough that you can still relax without a lot of noise and commotion

“Great location, outstanding view”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Traveling as two adult couples, we stayed at the Kata View Villa for five days and had a wonderful time. We could not have been happier with the kindness and enthusiasm of our hosts, who, upon our arrival, took us on a tour of the town, showed us where to get food/drinks, provided restaurant recommendations, and even got us stocked up on fruit at the local market.

The villa is lovely; large enough that we were all able to have our own space and, with bedrooms on two floors, was very private. The pool was a great size and the perfect place to spend the afternoon. The kitchen has everything you could need. The villa is located on a hill and requires a tuktuk/taxi to get to the town. We were a little concerned (when we booked) about the additional cost of the electricity, but the total was very reasonable and absolutely no cause for concern.

“Absolutely amazing”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This house is just amazing, everything you want and more. The hosts Kathy and Ian were just fantastic people. would recommend this to everybody. I would definitely stay again. The taxi driver Suk was just absolutely fantastic, we would come pick us up and take us wherever we wanted. When we come back to Thailand I would definitely stay again, the pool was just perfect. So much room to stretch out and relax. The chef who came and cooked us dinner twice was just amazing.

“Fantastic Villa! Most Relaxing Holiday, we will be back”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed with our 3 teens in March/April this year. From the time we booked Kathy and Ian were very helpful . When we arrived the Villa was exactly as we expected but bigger and better. Bedrooms and ensuites were all huge and private. The villa is very clean and the pool is great. We loved the view of the sea from our bedroom and being near the Big Buddha. Kathy and Ian met us at the villa and gave us phone with drivers numbers etc. This was so helpful. Our driver Sac was great and the advice from Ian on Kathy where to get groceries and wine etc was great. The Villa Mart was great. Our chef Benne was amazing. Got groceries for us and cooked up amazing curries. YUM!! Ian and Kathy were great hosts and always available via phone or email if we needed them. It was the most relaxing holiday I would recommend this villa. We did have to get a car to the beach as it's a bit far to walk but taxis are so cheap. Really nice spot to stay if you want a quiet retreat but still only a 10-15 min drive to all the shopping in patong etc. Definitely would tay here again! :) x also great internet and lots of movies at the villa

“An Oasis on the hill”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We travelled as a family of 6 and had a great time at Kata View Villa. The property was exactly as described. The views were lovely, and we particularly enjoyed the private pool to cool off from the heat (and the stairs kept us fit!). The ladies also enjoyed the superb service at the Oasis Spa just up the road.

Thank you Ian and Kathy for your friendly hospitality and local knowledge. You made our accommodation feel more like a home away from home. We particularly appreciated the welcome pack of supplies (especially after arriving late), tour of the area and arranging a taxi for our departure back to the airport at the end of our stay.

As stated in previous reviews, the villa is situated near the top of Kata Hill. It's not possible to walk down the road to Kata Beach, as the road was exceedingly busy and had no footpaths. So, if you need to get anywhere, you have to rely on a tuktuk/taxi/rental car. Ian and Kathy made this easy with a mobile phone with transportation contacts included. Using the same tuktuk and taxi drivers meant they could be trusted to give us a fair price and they knew exactly where to pick us up from and drop us off to. It also meant we got to meet some locals on a regular basis, which was nice.

We booked a couple of day trips with a local tour company, Simba Sea Tours, that needed to be prebooked before we left. We hoped that the address of the villa would be enough for them to find it. Unfortunately, it wasn't. It seems that unless you are staying at a recognised hotel, they will struggle to find you. A numbered address is not helpful when none of the local properties have letterboxes or numbered signs outside. We had one early morning instance talking to a thai person on the phone who was trying hard to find us (in the dark), while we were trying hard to make ourselves understood. Perhaps a small sign at the top of the driveway would have been helpful? If we had chosen to book through one of Ian and Kathy's contacts the pick up would have probably been easier.

Overall, we throughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa – it really is immaculate. Thanks again Ian and Kathy!
