Our stay here was wonderful! Ian was so kind and helpful and so was Joe!! Everything is exactly as described in the details and pictures of the villa. We stayed here for 8 days and enjoyed our time there very much. The house is very modern and up to date. Ian provides booklets and guides for different activities. There is a motorbike that is available for use as well. Although we didn't take advantage, it was great to know it was available to us. The pool was very nice to lay by on evening when were just relaxing at the house. It was beautifully lit at night as well! The villa, in our opinion, is in a great location. It's a very close to many beaches and great activities but the exact area that it is in is very nice and quiet with little traffic. We met some of the neighbors and they wet all so very kind! We also met the lady from the kite surfing facility and she told us about some great beaches to visit. There's a great little breakfast place that's about a three minute walk from the villa that we ate at every morning. It's called Hock Hoe Lee and we HIGHLY recommend dining there!! The food was great! Joe made himself readily available to us if we had any questions, concerns or even if we just needed a reminder of how something worked! He's such a nice and kind hearted person!! Our stay here was absolutely the best and we've already decided that this is exactly where we will stay when return for another holiday! Thank Ian and Thank you Joe for making our stay so easy and wonderful!
The driveway in was a bit bumpy. I thought were am I going, what am I in for. What a surprise awaits. Joe, the manager greets you at the gate & leads you to your Villa. The walkway has views directly to Chalong Bay,a deck with awning, tables & chairs awaits. Right on the beach. The Villa itself has every convenience mentionable, very clean, very modern. The pool, in the Villa is something to behold & adds to the ambience of the place. The king beds are comfortable , both rooms, upstairs are large , air conditioned , with their own ensuite. Back down the stairs the kitchen & living room ate well appointed. Joe runs you through the operation of all appliances & gives you his contact details in the event of any emergency. The Villa is well situated in a quiet area, 5 mins to Rawaii Beach & Restaurants or 5mins North to Chalong Pier where you can catch a boat out to one of the many islands. I highly recommend the Villa to any individuals or couples looking for deluxe accommodation , far enough away from the Phuket hustle & bustle but close enough to enjoy it if you want to.
I found out about this property via playing golf with Ian the owner.
This really is a high-end, top-spec townhouse. All the furniture and appliances are brand names and no expense has been spared in terms of "finish". The lounge/kitchen/diner area is really nice and relaxing. The upstairs bed rooms are very relaxing.
The highlight is the private pool area. Nice (small) pool, beautifully lit up at night - ideal for a few pre-dinner drinks or BBQ.
You will need your own transport as the Villa is next to a small beach...a motorbike is available for hire from the owner.
Airport pick-up and familiarization tour of the villa were spot on.

We rented this unit and were very disappointed when we found out it was not a "house" as referred to in the description. It is not beachfront, though it does have access to the beach. I wouldn't swim in the beach as when the tide was out I could see the several septic lines dumping into the ocean fairly close to the shore.
The location isn't that great, Phuket is a difficult town to get around in (rip off taxi drivers) unless you plan ahead. The travel agent recommended was a joke and I'm not convinced they were legitimate due to the fact that they 1)only accept cash payments and insist upon stopping by the condo to pick up the payment; 2)don't have an office in town that matches the name of the agency listed in the book; 3)don't seem to have any connection with the agency for which a web address is provided.
To get to the condo you enter through a back road that is slightly sketchy; doesn't feel safe for a women walking alone at night.
The condo itself was very nice. Lots of storage space, well stocked and the plunge pool was great. Pascal was very friendly and responded quickly to any issues.
