“Water/Pool problems...!”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015
3
people found this review helpful

I booked this villa for 3 nights at the end of March 2015. My wife is Thai and we had planned a short break with her family. We arrived at around 4.30, and were shown around the place, which looked fine initially. The pool was a big reason for booking the villa as we had 5 children in the party, so everyone was exited to use it.
Before the agent left he showed me where the switch was to turn on the Jacuzzi. When I tried it, after he had left, the pump started but nothing happened, but at least we could use the main pool so I thought I would call him the next morning. The next morning we discovered that there was no water for showering, toilet or sinks. I called the agent who apologised and said he would send a water truck to fill the 2 water reservoirs in the garden, but we would have to pay 300 baht to the driver. I also told him about the Jacuzzi, and he said he would call the pool man too. The water tank man arrived within 30 minutes which was great, but before he came one of the neighbours called to see if we had any water, as he did not have any either! My wife spoke to the water truck man who said it was a common problem on the development, as the water from the water company fills the reservoirs in the evening and is switched off during the day! Although we were a large party we certainly didn't over use the water, and anyway you should not have to worry about there being enough water for basic needs when on holiday.
The next morning exactly the same thing, no water! We had to call the water man directly, as the agent gave us his number, and once the tanks were filled we had to pay him 300 baht again, which was taken off the electricity charge. The agent was very apologetic; however it definitely took the glow off the stay. The pool man didn't show up until the afternoon of our last full day at the villa, and said he hadn’t seen the message from the agent, and wasn’t at all apologetic.. He said the water level in the pool was too low for the pump, which draws water from the pool to work the Jacuzzi, to work! He then said he would need to bring another water truck to fill the pool but could not do anything until the next day. I told him we were checking out at midday anyway the next day so no point.
The next day when the agent arrived to check us out, I told him that the pool man did not arrive until yesterday, which he seemed surprised about, as he should have arrived the day before, when we could have at least made use of the Jacuzzi. Incredibly he said that the pool situation was known to the owners, as there was a leak at the steps where you enter the pool!
It’s such a shame as I had high expectations for this place, particularly as it was a family get together. The water situation with both the pool and the villa is unacceptable particularly as they are both known issues.
Finally, this was the first time I rented a villa in Thailand, so I don’t know if this is common practice, but in addition to the price advertised online, we ended up paying another almost 5000 baht (£100) for the agent, cleaning, laundry and electricity use. This was only made clear in the contract which arrived after I had already paid the deposit for the stay. Again, not sure if it is common practice, but more transparency in the pricing before you commit could have influenced the final decision.

Dear guests, please allow us to apologise for the water situation and for the problem with the pool. In terms of the water, we have found that the 1,400 litre reservoirs have not been sufficient if a group of 10 or more have stayed, and as such we have just had the tank upgraded to a 5,000 litre, which being 3 times the size will now solve this problem going forward. The pool company have been stood down and we have started with a new maintenance company offering a better service. We are aware there is a small leak in the pool, but this was very recent and is being repaired from the 5th May by the new company. We couldn't have the pool out of use when we had guests staying, so had it planned for the first break when no guests would be affected.
We are also sorry you did not read or understand the rental price did not include some local fees. It is normal for a cleaning and laundry fee to be paid locally, and it is always the case for paying the electric according to how much you have used during your stay. Your stay was only three nights and it means the local fee seems disproportionate to your rental fee, but for a one or two week stay we are able to discount the rental fee to take allowance of the local fees that need paying to the local management team. It is clearly stated on the booking page that local fees apply, but we will ask Holiday Lettings to try to make this clearer as we don't want anyone to feel they didn't know.
So for future renters, please be assured the water and pool issues are resolved, and local fees are dealt with between any potential guests and ourselves through the booking process.

Thank you
Martin & Lindsay

Thank you for the review. Our water situation has been resolved since this review by the installation of a very large water tank that is more than enough for 12-13 people even if the local water fails for a few days.
Please come again

“Great value for money”

We went to visit family and decided to spend a few days quality time together. Couldnt have been more perfect.. close to the beach and shops. Six bedrooms were well sized and catered each group with its own en suite. Swimming pool entertained the children every day. Very clean and tidy, and great value for money. On site representative was really helpful. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

“Great holiday home”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

72 Avalon is very nice place. It's not ultimate luxury, but it's a great holiday house for your leisure stay. Like a normal home.

The owner, Martin C, was very helpful and awnsered quickly to our mails. Payments went smoothly. Avalon or actually Kao Moi Village is safe place surrounded by fence and there are 24h security on the gate (checked every taxi and Tuk Tuk which entered to the village).

We had some ants, some bugs and friendly geckos on the wall, but, hey, this is house on ground level in tropical land. Just use a spray.

Bedrooms have AC and living area have fans. It's up to you how much you spend and pay for electricity. If you keep AC on all the time, it costs. We payed like around 5000 bath for month (6 bath/unit). Four bedroom are ensuite, one without facilities, and one is small and have bunk beds. Three bedrooms have own outdoor, so you and your guest can come and go quite independently.

Kitchen is simple, but you don't make food in Thailand. Just go to restaurant or order it to the house (www.huahinbutler.com) and eat. There was fridge for breakfast and drinks. Freezer is nice for ice. There are gas stove and microwave. Also toaster and kettle. All what you need.

Bob and Nam, who take care of practical things with the house in Hua Hin (like check-in and check-out) where very helpful and easygoing. Management was good. We had some problems with electricity, water and pool (heavy rain), but all were fixed quickly.

The pool is must and in 72 Avalon it's large, but not deep. So it is quite nice for kids also.

Kao Moi/Avalon is few kilometers outside Hua Hin centrum. You need scooter or taxi. We walked few times to Hua Hin, but its not reccommodated after sunset. Roads are narrow and there are not so many street lights. The village was peaceful.

On the gate of the village you find a shop where you get a drinking water replacement, drinks, ice cream, sodas, alcohol, some snack etc. If need some more, you should go to Market Village or Hua Hin Mall by taxi. Especially in Market Village you will find quite large selection of groceries.

Near Village you find two elephant villages (Hutsadin is better), several interesting temples, etc. You find a catfish pool on the area of Wat Bor Fai (its fun to feed catfishes, there are machine where to buy fish food but you can get it also from the temple shop as well groceries).

This was our second time in 72 Avalon! Could come easily again!

Dear Kinnenan family, thank you for the honest and detailed review of our home from home in Hua Hin Thailand.
We agree its not a 5 star luxury spa boutique villa, but we like to think its great value for the money we charge to rent. Everything you have written is accurate and hopefully will assist others in planning to visit Hua Hin and use our lovely home. Thanks again Martin & Lindsay

“Great villa for large family with pool”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

We booked the villa for a family celebration and stayed for 3 nights. The villa was fantastic and represented good value for money. It is slightly away from the main drag so quite quiet but near enough that all the restaurants were only a short trip away. This suited us well and the kids loved the swimming pool. It feels safe and secure on a villa complex with gated access manned by a guard at all times. Only criticism is that with a large group the water supply struggled to cope if we all wanted to shower and get ready in the morning. Not a big deal though.

Dear guest, thank you for your honest feedback and experience of using our villa. We are glad everything was satisfactory or better for your stay. We agree the water situation can be a pain in the dry season when the municipality switches the water off foe short periods. We had estimated that a 1500 L tank for covering these times was sufficient, but if the villa is full and the water stays off for longer periods then it needs careful managing. Thank you once again for your business and your positive review. Regards Martin & Lindsay

“Please read before booking - so bad we only stayed 60 mins !”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Dear potential booker, I unfortunately did book this villa based on the reviews I read - the below is my experience and you can make your own mind up!

1) after phoning ahead 1 hour prior to our arrival ( as requested ) we were left for nearly 1 hour to wait for the rep outside the locked up villa . Everyone hot, tired and 3 under 4 year olds bouncing off the walls wanting to cool down in the pool...see below

2) the pool, I can only describe it as more like a stagnant cesspit than a swimming pool. Floating in and on it were worms, pieces of snake skin, foaming decaying lumps of general waste. Luckily before any of the children dipped a toe in the "rep" ( and I use the term in the broadest possible sense) phoned the pool man. He (pool man) confirmed pool had been filled with chemicals and nobody was to go in...and nobody had told him (ie Martin the owner) anybody was due. The rep said it would be sorted tomorrow , I commented it would take more than a day to rip it out and put a new one in. I build apartments myself for a living and it was the worst maintained pool i personally have ever seen . And worst of all dangerous

3) right now time to go inside. Opening the front door was like entering a ancient pyramid opened up for the first time. The surfaces were thick with dust, dead flies and mosquitoes everywhere ....yes I know it's thailand but come on......you have to pay someone to do the basic cleaning . I have stayed in 10 pound a night northern thai jungle camps that were tidier. You will not be lonely in any of the rooms, as when we were there plenty of lizards were crawling the walls to keep you company

4) it's nowhere near the beach ( seems like a small issue given above )

I would not subject my family to such horrific accommodation . So we left. Paying out again for something better .

This is a very disappointing review to have been left. The customer decided within 15 minutes that the property was not to their liking in terms of location and requested a full refund. We declined a refund on the basis of the booking terms and conditions which requires a number of weeks notice, not minutes. This is the type of response to not refunding the booking fee that is unfortunately forthcoming. Please read the other reviews before making your mind up, we are seeking a review from the customers using the villa in July 2014 for a month, and hopefully this will be published shortly.
