Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house is so clean and tidy. The view in the pool is gorgeous. The location is not hard to find and it's extremely quiet. The most important thing is that Philipe has really been helpful and kind during our stay. We just stayed one night in his house, but he helped us to find a good deal borrowing the motorbike, showed us the way to the sight seeing point around and gave us lots of useful suggestions. It's like come home and the experience was unforgettable. We wish we had stayed longer.

  • Me and my boyfriend stayed two nights at Lovely One Bedroom Condominium. The place is great and cozy. We could see the Big Budha from our room and the trees and hills were superb. Everything was awesome, especially Philippe! He picked us up because the taxi driver apparently didn't know the way to go even when he claimed to have known it, but Philippe picked us up and took us to the GREATEST DINNER EVER, we loved the food!! Philippe would gladly share his experiences, we shared stories and he suggested so many great and amazing places to go, he even explained on the map one by one, very detailed. He helped us rent a motorbike, helped us rent a tour to go to Phi Phi islands, he even went to the pier to bring our backpacks (because after Phi Phi we had to go right a way to the airport but couldn't bring all of our stuff, so he chose to bring them to the pier!!) amazingly very helpful! Couldn't think of another experiences like this actually, this one was, far, the best holiday experience :). He wasn't just being a host but also a . friend to us. Thank you, Philippe!! VERY RECOMMENDED!

  • My wife and have just returned to the UK after spending 8 weeks in Philippe's lovely condo near Kata in Phuket. Although more suitable for short stays, the condo had everything we needed. The kitchen/diner was well appointed and was of high specification as was the large shower and toilet area. It was also very secure and has a built-in wall safe for valuables, passports etc. The bedroom was equipped with a good sized double bed and had lots of floor to ceiling wardrobe space. Philippe's cleaner also cleaned the whole condo from top to bottom every two days, including weekends so we were well looked after. Although the condo does not have a balcony, the salt water pool and its patio area is less than a minute away. The condo is wifi equipped and my wife and I used it daily for emails etc and two or three times a week to (website hidden) family and friends. We are also learning Turkish and we conducted our weekly lessons from Turkey using (website hidden). The condo is situated on what is known as Kata Hill, about a 30 minute walk from Kata beaches. It has a smashing view of the beach area in the distance and the 'Big Budda' a 45 meter landmark on top of Phuket's 2nd highest hill. Going to the beach on foot is an easy 25 minute walk down the hill, but as the hill is very steep, it is not the easiest to walk up and we always returned to the condo by taxi. Although most taxis wanted 300 TBT a bit of negotiation brings a discount and we never paid more than 200 TBT. Away from the beaches, the condo is well situated for travelling to other places of interest. From the moment we arrived Philippe proved himself to be a great host. We saw quite a lot of him during our stay and by the time we left we had become good friends. Although a Swiss national, Philippe has lived in Thailand for over 10 years and has an unparalleled knowledge of the area and its attractions. For safety reasons we choose to hire a car for the duration of our stay and Philippe arranged the hire for us at highly advantageous rates. He also negotiated for a replacement car when ours developed a problem. Philippe also has great contacts and willingly can obtain discounts on prices of transport, trips and other visitor attractions. On our first day he took us shopping and pointed out the local supermarkets and fresh food markets. He marked some of the more important sites to visit on our map and took us out a number of times to some great restaurants. We would certainly recommend Philippe's condo to anyone looking for high specification serviced and secure accommodation near Kata. We are very grateful for the way Philippe looked after us during our long stay and if he can ever tear himself away from Thailand and can find himself in...

  • Well what can I say about staying in this wonderful condominium , Excellent host ! Philippe really could not do enough for us from the moment we arrived we had a warm welcome when we arrived, then Philippe offered to take us to the local supermarket to stock up on some essentials for our stay but not only that with all his knowledge and experience of Phuket he saved us sooo much time being able to give us valuable advise about the island,trips,restaurants Ect,he really is a font of all knowledge and an exceedingly nice,kind,helpful and approachable person. The condo itself was spotlessly clean,modern,has great Wi-Fi and a fab shower and bathroom,the kitchen is modern and has all the amenities you would need, the bed was very comfy and we had good nights sleep,being at the end of a cul-de-sac it was quiet which was much appreciated being away from the hussle & bussle of the local town of Kata but it was also close enough to take a stroll into town (although we hired mopeds for the duration of our stay ) there is a steep hill down to the town which we did climb a couple of times which we found quite amusing as we both looked like we had just got out the shower when we reached the top , but if you did not fancy the hill there are plenty of taxis or tuk tuks available at reasonable prices or you can do as we did and hire mopeds for the measly price of around £2.50-£4.00 a day depending where you hire from,we loved zipping around on our peds and we found some amazing places to visit, take wonderful pictures,eat or sunbathe. If you did not feel like going out the Condo has a stunning infinity pool with views over to Kata Noi Beach and the Big Buddha and it so relaxing and quiet, most times we used the pool we felt like it was our own personal pool as we were the only ones there it really was great,we loved it and I'm sure you would too . There was also a safe in the room which enabled us to feel relaxed about our personal items being safe whilst we were out and about although the area the Condo is in also feels very safe day and night . I would recommend Philippes Stunning Condo to anyone and if we ever return to Phuket,Kata (which I think is a certainty) we will certainly be booking with Philippe again . On our second to last night we went out to a great fish restaurant with our host to say thank you for making our stay so wonderful,we now consider Philippe our friend . Until we meet again Philippe take care , Julie & Jeff x

  • Philippe is an unbelievable host !!! He knows everything about life in Thailand and about Thai people.
    He knows where to go, what to do, how to do it. He is more efficient than the best guide tour in Thailand, because he is not interested by your wallet, but your satisfaction.

    First of all, even before arriving in his accommodation, he already helped us about optimization of our trip by giving relevant trips and precious details.
    When we had been arrived, he was so helpful : by helping us to make some shopping (comfortable for heavy bottles of water for example), by booking for us excursions.
    The cleaning of the house was very good, we also got nice dinners together, and very interesting conversations.
    You can ask anything and trust Philippe for sure, he has a great experience !

    To finish, at the end of our trip, Philippe took 1 entire day of his time to take us out with his own car, to show us every important point interest of Phuket, what a wonderful places, sights we saw ! Thank you again Philippe !
    Which host can do that for you? Not so much…

    In conclusion, don’t think and don’t hesitate, you can go there eyes closed for sure !!!

  • My wife and I stayed at Philippe's condo for 4 nights in January 2014. We highly recommend Philippe and his lovely one bedroom condominium.

    Philippe's communication with us from the time of booking all the way through our stay and afterwards was outstanding. He promptly answered any questions and sent several helpful messages with information regarding our stay.

    Philippe makes more of an effort to be a great host than any concierge of a fancy hotel. He really spent time going above and beyond the call of duty for us during our stay. We felt like we were being hosted by a close friend rather than someone we had just met.

    When we first arrived, our taxi driver had trouble with the location of the complex, and Philippe made the effort to find where the driver had randomly stopped on the road in order to guide him directly to the complex.

    The condo itself is impeccably clean. Very secure and safe. The kitchen is stocked well with all the basics if you feel like cooking your own meals. My wife's favorite detail was that a French press for making coffee is available - great for an escape from instant coffee! The shower is magnificent and all the fixtures in the kitchen, bathroom, and throughout the rest of the apartment are very high quality. The air conditioning worked perfectly, the washer and dryer came in handy and the full size refrigerator made it easy to store food and beverages.

    The location is very peaceful, and set a little back from the tourist areas which is actually quite lovely and keeps it more peaceful than the tourist bustle below. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the infinity pool high up on the hill. If you enjoy walking, the 20 minute or so walk to the beach won't bother you at all. If you are a quick walker, it will probably only take 15 minutes. My wife said she's probably closer to 25 minutes. :-)

    Philippe also gave us a nice welcome tour of the local area, took us grocery shopping at the supermarket, brought us to his favorite massage location, helped communicate directions to our day-trip providers for pickup, and even drove us to the airport when we were a bit short on time.

    We had some really nice conversations with Philippe. His warmth and generosity of spirit made us feel welcome and valued as guests.

    Philippe, thank you for all of your hospitality and for making Phuket such a memorable place for us. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again when we return! :-)

  • Jean-Paul et Michèle, retraités, Français, du 18 décembre 2013 au 4 janvier 2014.
    Appartement parfait pour un couple: très propre, pratiquement neuf:
    Chambre: literie excellente, grde armoire penderie avec étagères, coffre.
    Cuisine neuve avec grand frigo et toute équipée, mais nous n'avons jamais cuisiné dans l'appartement vue la quantité de restaurants délicieux et peu chers.
    Salle de bain avec grande douche très agréable.
    Wifi, piscine très agréable et avec vue magnifique sur Kata et la mer.
    Pour nous, voiture indispensable pour se rendre à la plage et dans le centre.
    Seul problème pendant notre séjour: un chantier bruyant à proximité, mais qui semble être terminé.
    Quant au propriétaire, Philippe, que des points positifs:
    gentil, serviable, se met en 4 pour vous être agréable, nous a conduit dans une galerie marchande pour acheter un téléphone,puis dans un grand magasin d'alimentation pour faire les courses de première nécessité ; nous a même changé une roue crevée....bref... un hôte comme vous n'en verrez jamais plus :)) Merci Philippe !!!

    January 2014
  • We had a great time at Philippe's condominium. Philippe was the perfect host, he could not have been more obliging or helpful to us. The condo is very modern and clean, with a very good maid, lovely lady. The pool and the views from the pool overlooking Kata are beautiful. We would highly recommend Philippes condo to anyone and will definitely be returning next year. Regards Peter & Kylee.

    December 2013
  • Me and Joe stayed at Philippe's for 5 nights. Well, there's too much good things to said about the man himself. I was attracted to Philippe's accommodation because he was extremely helpful and friendly from the start. I guess I just followed my instincts to book his apartment because since its our first time at Thailand, I believe Philippe would be a really great choice, boy I was not wrong.

    The apartment is about half an hour from the airport . It was really hard at first to communicate with the Thais but luckily enough Philippe managed to talk to them and we reach our destination safely. We first met him at a supermarket (you can't missed him, he's very tall and handsome) whereby he advised us to get some groceries before proceeding to the apartment to save hassle as we did not rent any bike/car. After that, he quickly shows us the apartment and again being very kind, bring us around in his car to show us places, beaches nearby, recommending restaurants so that we have a brief idea.

    At first, I was kinda regretting that we didn't get any vehicle because the apartment is up a hill. Going down was not so much of a problem, but after long walks & swims, going up the hill is a killer. But as the day goes by, I'm beginning to love it! Without a vehicle, we did see more of Kata and created many more memories :)

    The apartment is very smart, immaculate and everything works fine. The shower is heavenly and since we always make breakfast and leave the washings for later, there are some days when we come back to a clean kitchen. Just remember to bring an adapter to charge your gadgets. And Philippe's is just a text away, he respond very promptly to your questions if you have any.

    I have no hesitation to choose Philippe as one of my host in the future. We shared some great stories and he was there to bid us goodbye at 6am! I find great joy in Philippe's hospitality. Top-class service.

    November 2013
  • What can I say about Philippe, that is not already said? Well, "words may lie but action will always tell the truth". That is Philippe.
    He is honest, caring and pay so much interest in that everything is ok. As I were on my own, it was, during the stay, great of having a"friend/family", feeling .
    So i Say: "in Phuket, never again a hotel", you will have a much better time, quality wise in every aspect, staying at Philippes, apartments. The apartment was in a totally brand new shape, No dirty rugs or anything, just white shining clean tiles, and a fantastic toilet, wich is not what you get everyday, even in a luxuary hotel.
    He will help you with everthing, taking you shopping good, great food, renting motorbikes etc, As a person coming from Europe, it is vital , to learn about the local culture and traditions, Philippe speaks thai knows the area, like a private tourguide, but wiht very, very high social skills. As a coldplay fan I would say: "God put a smile on his face", HE IS THE REAL DEAL.
    As a fist time traveller with, AIRBNB, this makes me think about putting up our own house at the site. AIRBNB is a great site and
    If I want to go to Phuket again, I know were to go!!
