There was the group of 10 people celebrating birthday in Phuket, Thailand. Along was also 1-year old Oliver boy. We rented this large house, Villa Almoura, in Bang Tao Beach. The house exceeded our expectations. Beautiful and clean bedrooms with private bathrooms. There was even an own baby crib for Oliver. The housekeeper Tess took care of tidiness (changing of linens and cleaning the rooms; this service was included to the rent of the villa. Tess also took care of cleaning and ironing of guests' personal clothing against extra fee). If you did not get enough of swimming in your own pool in the villa, it was easy to take a Tuk-Tuk to the beach or after walking a short distance, you were able to use the free Shuttle bus, which was operating between the hotels and the Bang Tao Beach.
Renting a car was not necessary as by taxi it was quite easy and cheap to go anywhere around the island. We found the good wine store in the village nearby and lot of good restaurants around. We can recommend this villa warmly and will be back again, for sure.More
