“A quiet family retreat in the forest behind Layan beach”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016
3
people found this review helpful

This villa is the home of a very distinctive couple who left their mark on the design and decorative items to be found all over this personalized villa. Located in Vichuda Hills estate, you are a 30 minutes drive from the airport and 20-40 minutes from Kamala respectively Patong Beach. Layan is the closest beach and just a 5 minutes drive away. As the next restaurants and beaches are not at your doorstep it is advisable to have your own means of transportation.
It was obvious that the outside of the house has been painted recently and some renovations have been accomplished. Situated on about 4000 m2 you will have plenty of space to accommodate 8 persons in 4 ensuite rooms. The complex is guarded and you will find yourself in a quiet and safe environment.

Functionality however it's lacking when it comes to bathrooms where water pressure and availability of hot water seemed erratic. The rain shower heads leaked in every direction, although some hand showers have been replaced. The same applies for the air-conditioners: some worked and others had a moldy smell or did not cool. The kitchen was in a state of neglect and our privately hired chef had to make extra efforts to prepare our meals. Lacking or broken appliances (dishwasher) made her job quite difficult.
You have to be aware that this villa is rented out privately without service or management, except for a 3 hour cleaning service on working days. We were staying over New Year, so practically we were stranded without cleaning for 3 days and had to arrange for it ourselves.

The price for "villa only" was ok considering high season and the villa-size however organizing staff for service and maintenance was a bit of a headache. We settled in after a few days, though on vacation you would expect everything to be "ready to go" on arrival.
The whole place is a bit dated when it comes to technology and entertainment systems. There was a TV room but no TVs in the bedrooms and WiFi did not cover the whole area. This could be improved and is not 2016 standard.

However you will find plenty of space for privacy and relaxation. There is a spacious terrace and some rooms have their private balconies, a Sala is sitting next to the pool, a lounge on the main terrace, an inside and outside dining area, a BBQ station at the pool level and the pool itself is huge.
We would recommend this place to people with some organizational skills to get the service you need by hiring local staff yourself. If you take full advantage of the space and rooms it can be considered to be worth the money. If you are new to renting houses, you might be better off with a full serviced villa or pool-villa in one of the hotels directly at the beach.

“A true gem of beauty and luxury!”
Reviewed 24 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We rent luxury villas in Thailand almost every year and never had such a splendid experience with perfect service et amenities. It's actually better than the photos! From any of the large rooms, the huge flowered terrasses or the fantastic pool, there is a magnificent view with mountains and tropical greenery without any obstruction from other houses. The location is ideal (only 10 minutes from beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping malls) and very quiet in a large gated development with only six luxury properties set in lush lanscaping that looks like a botanical garden.

The immense villa itself is amazing: beauty and quality is everywhere, from the choice of china and kitchenware to the awesome pieces of furniture and artworks. Martin and Linda, the helpful owners, must have put lots of love, time and investment in their well appointed and tastefully decorated house, wich gives it a soul that most other rentals will never have!

“Stunning Thai villa with beautiful views - the perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in February 2012

person found this review helpful

This is a beautiful house on split levels, set in amazing landscaped gardens in an exclusive development. The rooms are attractively furnished in traditional Thai style complete with modern conveniences (including excellent air-conditioning and fans!). We loved the infinity pool and spent a lot of time in the outdoor kitchen. It's a luxurious getaway, a very relaxing and peaceful idyll, but only a short drive from the beach and the restaurants and shops around Phuket. We loved our time there, and I would recommend this highly as a very special place to stay.
