The villa is located in Rawai, at the southern tip of Phuket island. Because of its attractive mix of tranquillity and amenities, this area has earned a reputation as a popular residential area, especially with the island's expat community.
Nowadays Rawai is a vibrant little town with many shops (Tesco Lotus, Villa market, Macro) , bars, resturaunts. It is simple to get a long tail boat or speed boat from the beach for day boat excursions out to Phuket's surrounding islands. Many longtail/speed are boats available for hire and line up against the beach shores, you can arrange a day trip or a trip for 3 hrs to Coral Island, Koh Lone or Racha Island,or a fishing or snorkel trip. it is around 20 mins from Central Festival and Big C shopping, 45 mins from Phuket International Airport.
As a note.. we include cleaning before and after you come. Also the maid will come two times a week.... However.. I you are more than 6 people we reccommend that you have the maid cleaning more than those two days. The extra cost is 1500 baht or about 50 us pr. time extra.
Everything except one closet with personal clothes. Do not worry cause there are at least 20 more available.
Interaction with Guests
If I am in Phuket at the moment of renting I will be around to help if needed. If not we have a manager that will cater to all your needs and questions.
There is a video walkthrough. Ask for that after booking since we can not post links here before it is booked. It will simply not show up.
Looking back Rawai is probably the very first real tourist beach on Phuket Island. People would travel from various locations around Phuket to Rawai on weekends to to get away from the towns and work to relax.

At sunset many restaurants open along the beach and on the beach pavements, what was a pedestrian walkway becomes a fresh fish or seafood restaurant. Entertainment in the local bars and surroundings makes most evenings make this beach one of the local favourites.
Motorbikes, Car or Taxi. Also there is bus to Phuket town.
Other Things to Note
Rawai and the area is a fantastic place. To me personally my favourite in this part of Asia. However. Walking is fine, but it is humid and hot. Even everything is around you I recommend either a driver, a car or at least some motorbikes during your stay. Bicycling is an option, but it is hot if you are not in very good shape.
1: Never urinate in the pool. Also no sunscreen or makeup on body before going into the pool.Remember to turn off jacuzzi if used.
2: Remember to turn off air-condition and lights when you don't use it. It is for your own best electricwise.
3: You can drag luggage on the tiles , but lift it over wood. Also.. Never move furniture around because of the risk of making scratches on the wooden floor.
4: The CCTV cameras are only outside the house and not by the pool.
6: There are 8 pair of speakers in the house. You can connect with a pc , mac , or any IOS device. You will have access to them through airplay from the devices when you are connected to "Rawai@home".
7: If there is some special food imported in the kitchen please don't finish it. It could be difficult to get again. Of course you can use normal stuff that is there.
8: We do not deduct any money for some broken glasses, but tell the landlord so we know where there could be some broken glass.
9: Speaking about glass. NEVER use glasses made out of glass close to the pool. Use plastic cups provided in the kitchen.
10: If you empty the bar for liquor we expect you to either pay for it or restock before checkout.
11: Please do not cut anything directly on the granite in the kitchen. It is costly to replace or repair it.
12: The terminator pool table upstairs..... Be careful when you hit the ball so it does not go out and rolls down to the first story. One thing is on the tiles, but another thing is if someone gets one in their head. Beware.
13: If you use the 6 meter waterfall remember to turn it off when finished.
14: If you have rented the motorbikes you are responsible to pay for repairs to them if you crash them. It is not expensive normally though. The bikes have insurance , but only for driver up to 5-10000 baht.. Not to fix the bike. Such thing is common at rent out places too.
15: Normally we agree on a set price for extras, payable on arrival. It will be about cost price anyway. It is just that it is difficult to include it when we do not know how much people use. Especially if people forget to turn off airconditioners. They draw the same KW as a heater each.
