I communicated with Pete & Gib multiple times two months before our trip to Thailand, and requested a room. We paid a deposit for the room, and Pete confirmed our room before we left. Pete told us that he was going to pick us up from the airport because Rawai is about an hour and a half from the airport. When we arrived in Phuket, we waited at the airport for him for an hour. We called both of the numbers he gave us and there was no response. We decided not to even try to get a cab to his place because we didn't want to stay with anyone that would treat us this way.
Good thing we did not try to go to Rawai beach guesthouse... I emailed Pete, and he responded three days later. He told me that he was on VACATION and wasn't even at his guesthouse!!!!! He said he forgot to write down our booking. I was appalled at how this could happen! We paid the deposit, communicated through about 12 emails, he even confirmed the booking. DO NOT STAY AT HIS PLACE. He might just forget about you, and go on his own vacation!
Pete told me he would refund my deposit for the room, and it has been more than a month since this happened and still no refund!! HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CROOK TO ME that took my money, left me at the airport, and ruined my time in Phuket.
