we stayed in the one bedroom villas at the poolside - great to have our baby sleep inside while we played with our older girls by the pool - meters from the villa. Villas were very nicely appointed and double the size of a good sized hotel room. They were light and airy (bathrooms had large bath separate shower and great skylight) bed was comfortable plenty of pillows and they kindly put down 2 mini matresses for our girls in our room. Food from Wipa's was really VERY good. Excellent quality and having a full cooked breakfast served in the villa - housekeeper would lay the table and set everything out for us and made fresh toast and tea / coffee in the kitchenette (real coffee from Saeco coffee machine!) was really nice. living area inlcuded a kitchenette with dining table TV DVD player etc - they had soem music and DVD's that we could use and no trouble for them to find more. Inclusive of their rate is free wireless internet, use of a car and driver for 9 hours a day and 2x 45 min massage in our villa all which were excellent! - we went out for half day with kids then for dinner at night. One night we got a tip by the owners (Khun Wipa & Khun Methee both foodies) to go to a local restaurant that had views as good as "baan rim Pa" in patong but food was incredibly cheap! 120-180 THB for mains! Wished we had more time to do the bbq by the villa poolside which would have been fun. Next time we'll do the very nicely appointed 3 bedroom villas - huge with OWN pool etc and better views! Here's what NOT to do - dont try and do a boat tour to Khai island when its a public holiday week - it was a waste of money and it was like packing tourists like sardines. We didnt stay for the lunch and paid to get off the island asap!
