The location is very quiet and safe. There is not much around the property and you need a tuk tuk (taxi) every time you want to go somewhere (restaurant, shop, beach or any other attractions). The ride costs 200 baht and takes roughly 20 minutes. If you plan to stay a lot in the villa and enjoy the pool and you are happy to eat food from a couple of local restaurants this is a good option (or if you are happy to grab a cab each time you want to do something). The hosts are nice and check-in and check-out was smooth. The villa starts to be dated, thus I would most likely choose a newer villa in Orchid Paradise home (they have 4 developments and this is the oldest)
Despite numerous requests to fix the lack of hot water, in both bathrooms, this was not done. The staff did not address this matter. They sent someone to review the matter on the third day -- that was the last time we saw anyone. Not Acceptable. This lack of attention to a customer's direct complaint is not acceptable -- why is there a property manager if issues are not addressed in a timely manner.
Also we received the wrong TV remote control so we were without TV for the week. Why??!!
What you should know about this property is that this is NOT a daily serviced place. Only after you leave is the place cleaned.
Would I stay here again? No, not given the lack of caring by the property managers when they cannot address the most simple of requests.
Good Aspects: Reasonable location, large size villa, nice washing machine.
We just found this place after our driver had searching around for almost 1/2 HR. According to TripAdvisor.
The Villa is only about a block from the beach. That is one of the main reason we book this place but not up in a very dark mountain and away from the city and beaches.
This is very sad, according to the employees that work here. TripAdvisor put the wrong location on the map.
That just ruining our family new year beach get away. If we wanted to spent our holiday up in the mountains somewhere we could have chosen Chang Mai.
Before anyone make the same mistake, be aware that this place is not near any beaches and it will take you 15 minutes one way to visit a beach or 10 minutes to the nearest shop. :(
I have nothing against this place is very nice but we expected. :(
