If you're looking for a quiet, top floor apartment (which equates to no one clattering around above you) in what is by far the most beautiful and tranquil part of Phuket with one of the worlds top 10 beaches a 2min walk away and a stones throw from excellent restaurants, a yummy French bakery and looking over a beautiful and tranquil lagoon then this is apartment at the The Sands is for you. Look no further.
From the moment we checked in and were greeted with the basic essentials in the fridge by a very friendly and knowledgeable Dutch gentleman called Henk who was on hand if we needed him for our entire stay and spoke perfect English we knew we had arrived somewhere special. The apartment has recently been refurbished to a high standard and the sofa is so comfy we often dozed off watching a movie. There is a fully equipped kitchen which was perfect for those nights we just felt like staying home. The bed was extremely comfortable and huge.
The common areas are lush and green and the inifinity pool always spotless with a good number of sun loungers and shaded seating when the sun got too hot.
The area itself had retained a truly authentic Thai feel with plenty of restaurants and markets close by. I can't recommend highly enough and can't wait to return.
A very spacious apartment but this not a true photo of it, I think it is being updated. It is about as far south as you can get in Phuket, in a compact little village where there are enough restaurants and small shops, very close to the beach and a short walk from the main part of the town. The by-pass road from the airport should be finished soon so an hours drive will be possible then. There is a nice view of the lake from the balcony and the swimming pool is large and private. Hardly used in fact but very dangerously pebbled! The whole building needs a bit of TLC but lots of places do over there. The manager was helpful and provided a few things that were missing in the apartment.
We stayed at this apartment within the Sands complex in July/August and it lived up to the positive reviews. Spacious, well kept and very convenient for Nai Harn Beach. The main bedroom is large and the twin room was perfect for my 2 kids - they enjoyed the pool and the short walk to the beach. We rented a car and it was a good base to explore with Kata and even Patong not too far if you take the quieter western coastal road. The owner was very responsive and we received excellent assistance whilst we were there. A nice, relaxing change from being cramped in to a single room in a resort, I'd go again.

We spent 6 wonderful weeks in Peter's apartment and we loved it! The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable, well- equipped (beach towels, kitchen utensils, etc.) and perfectly located (3 minute walk to the beach and lots of restaurants). Henk took really good care of us and helped us with any minor problem/request immediately and Nit did a great job too and kept the place spotlessly clean! (Thank you guys!) We can highly recommend the apartment and we are definitely planning to come back again!
