We had an amazing time in this amazing villa over Christmas.
The villa is stunning; very quiet, great decoration, spacious - the villa is perfect for families with the beautiful pool / jacuzzi and the beach (easily accessible 5-10mns walk).
We were 3 families (11 persons) and despite the unfortunate poor weather, we never felt cramped. The living room floor is really big with 3 outdoor sitting areas, all the bedrooms are very big, very clean. The home manager is easily reachable and very helpful with various requests (car rental, food delivery etc)
Nothing bad to say about this villa, we will definitely be back!
Had a wonderful time with my family. We spent a total of 5 nights here. It is very relaxing and the view is really amazing. We got to enjoy both the Sunrise and the Sunset from the house.
The manager did a good job by getting us a nice SUV as requested. I felt safer travelling around the island than on the motorbike suggested.
The pool is great and our son enjoyed himself and so did their grandparents who were always relaxing in the Jacuzzi after the island tours.
Really love this place and we hope we will be back again soon.
super sejour - very nice villa and a great view.
welcomed - everything was perfect - the welcome by patrick was perfect - our requests for car hire were perfect . I highly recommend this villa!
This year is both my parents 70’s birthdays and as such I my brother and I wanted to organise a really special holiday for all of the family, we decided on Thailand as they have never been and we can’t be sure for how much longer they can manage long haul.
On arrival to the villa we had chosen everyone was thrilled, it was just as great as in the pictures, everyone had a really well furnished room and we were all excited to be spending our holiday and celebrating their 70th birthday’s here.
The enjoyment was short-lived, the on site management had failed to provide many of the pre-arranged extra’s as agreed, without going into detail we accepted this as much of this was outside the owners control.
On the first morning we were woken to building noise happening only feet away from the property, Angle Grinders cutting steel at 7am in the morning. This continued for pretty much the entirety of our stay meaning using the pool and outdoor facilities couldn’t be used, who would want construction workers staring down at you?
On informing the owner’s of the problem they were very rude and told us it wasn’t as bad as we were making out, not sure how that decision was made in Paris?
Whilst the villa is very nice I wouldn’t recommend anyone staying here as the owners will not accept any problems, the problems are yours not theirs.
The villa is as shown in the pictures and well furnished, the issues we faced were more with the organisation and communication with the villa management and until these are sorted we would not recommend staying here.
Not all of our issues but the biggest one's were;
1. Construction within 25 feet of the property. During our stay there was construction going on very close to the property, the noise started every day around 7am, Angle Grinders cutting steel making very loud noise. Workmen overlooking the swimming pool making it unsuitable for us to use during the day. They also had fires everyday so if sat outside we were literally smoked out, it was also toxic. We contacted the on site management who did nothing and just said thats Thailand. They could have asked for them not to start the noisy work until 9am and move the fires but didn't make any effort to assist with this problem. What was being erected seemed like a viewing platform which if that is the case will ruin any privacy this villa did have.
2. In one of the rooms which we have two twin boys sleeping (aged 7) they kept one of the bed side lamps on as a night light. The shade hadn't had the plastic covering removed and luckily the burning smell was noticed before they caught fire.....incredibly dangerous.
3. General Organisation - We are a family of mixed ages which includes my 70 year old parents so I had organised through the villa management a minivan and driver for the week. The drive way to the villa is very steep and the villa management organised a mini van with lowered suspension so it couldn't get up the drive. That meant carrying cases and my poor parents struggling everyday to get up and down the driveway. I had also requested a maid and cook daily to do the breakfasts, this wasn't organised properly and a complete waste of time. On checking out of the villa we were presented with a 15,000 bill for electricity, so for 8 days we had to pay an additional $450. I pointed out to the on site management that our stay had been ruined by the construction next door and the poor organisation by him and his team.....he offered to reduce it by 1,000 ($30) which was a joke.
I contacted the owners who refused to acknowledge any of these issues and instead told me I was fussy and the construction, noise and fires next door were not their issue to deal with.
