Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed in Philippe's apartment (Big Budda view) for 3 weeks. The apartment is really nice and convenient. The location is quaet good. 30 minutes walking to reach the best beach in Phuket (Kata Noi) and 10 minutes via the motorbike. Philippe is the best oner of apartment who I know. Really kindly and helpfull person. He was always on-line. Philippe was driving us to the supermarket and transfering to the airoport absolutely free. Thank you very much Phillipe!:) Also as a bonus, we lived one week in top hill see view apartment, the big 2 bedrooms apartment at the neibous building. It was the really beautiful flat:) like as home. We like our holiday very much!

  • Philippe was an awesome host. When I got into Phuket after a long day's travel, he drove me around the Kata Beach to get me acquainted with the area, directed me to the shortcut to the beach and took me to the grocery store to stock up on supplies. The condo is in a beautiful setting in the hills above Kata Beach. It's about a 15 minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to restaurants and shopping. The condo complex is well maintained with a friendly staff. On my daytrip to Phi Phi, Philippe arranged for one of the staff to wait with me for the shuttle van to pick me up which was very helpful. On my last day, Philippe drove me around the southern part of Phuket Island to take in a number of the sights. As I didn't have wheels, that was much appreciated as I saw things I normally wouldn't have. Overall, a great stay!

  • My girlfriend and I are teachers who were looking to travel during out holiday this year. We have never been to Phuket, Thailand, but had an amazing time. A large reason for that was the Big Buddha View Condominium and Philippe. The location alone offers a comfortable stay and a nice and quiet atmosphere. The accommodations were great and just the right distance from the beach.
    Philippe really makes the place his willingness to help and make sure that things are going the best they possibly can is a great help. Philippe gave a us a great little tour, gave suggestions, took us grocery shopping, helped us with tours and booking cars. Philippe also offered us information on what to try and do and what to be cautious of. He took away a large portion of the stress of the unknown and removed any pitfalls that sometimes can happen with traveling. If you are traveling to Phuket and are looking for a spot to relax and recharge your batteries this is the place you will not be disappointed.

  • I had a wonderful stay at Philippe's condo. The accommodations were as described and very clean. Philippe was a great host. He drove me to the supermarket the day I arrived so I'd have the necessary provisions for my stay and showed me around the area so I wouldn't get lost when I ventured out on my own. He also recommended boat tours which he coordinated for me. When I needed to get to the airport, he was available to provide the taxi driver directions to the condo in Thai. He tried to make himself available to show me around Phuket but unfortunately he became ill and wasn't able to.

    There is construction at the complex which made it a little noisy during the day but that didn't bother me as I was out most of the day. I would recommend either renting a scooter or a car if you want to see the area or if you have issues walking long distances as the condo is not located in the main hotel area of Kata and there is a steep hill to contend with when going to the beach or the main road of Kata.

    I look forward to another visit to Phuket and will definitely stay at one of Philippe's properties. Thank you, Philippe, for an enjoyable visit!

  • what a spectacular property! Philippe was kind enough to upgrade me due to scheduling challenges with different guests, so I spent 3 weeks in the 2br ocean view and then 1 week in the 1br. both units are meticulously designed with modern European appliances and fixtures. everything is super clean and just felt like home away from home. it is a bit secluded up in the hills but the gorgeous view and serenity are well worth it. it is a 20-25min walk to kata beach via short cut. or alternatively you can walk to main street to catch a taxi. so if you plan a longer stay, it may make sense to rent a car or motorbike.

    Philippe is an extraordinary host, always ensuring all my needs were met. first day when I landed, he drove me to tesco grocery store to pick up all my daily essentials. he even showed me around town, the gym, the restaurants etc. throughout my stay, he frequently checks in to make sure everything is working well, offered to drive me to grocery store, and provided advice on a number of issues, etc. the condo was great but Philippe made a huge difference. I highly recommend the property and I myself look forward to checking in again.

  • Appartement génial, vue fantastique, très belle et agréable piscine, seul hic, il faut savoir que cet appartement a toutes les qualités à condition de louer un véhicule, scooter pour les malades mentaux à moins d'en avoir une grande habitude ou voiture, ce qui est plus raisonnable, sinon bien bien aimer la marche à pied.
    Nous avons bénéficiés d'un upgrade de logement suite à une extension de dernière minute de son locataire. Booké le Big Buddha one BR Condominium et puis finalement nous retrouver dans Amazing SEAVIEW Condo in Kata était une surprise exceptionnelle. Je peux recommander Philippe à tout voyageur et nous même retournerons chez Philippe, ceci est certain.

    Great apartment, great view, very beautiful and nice swimming pool, only thing you should know, this apartment has all the qualities as announced but one should rent a car - or scooter for the "mentally ill" unless you are an experienced driver - or car, which is more reasonable, if not you need to enjoy walking. We have enjoyed an upgrade in housing following a last minute extension of a tenant. Big Buddha View one BR Condominium was our booked accommodation, but finally we found ourselves in Amazing SEAVIEW Condo in Kata ! That was an exceptional surprise. I do highly recommend Philippe and his accommodations and we will return. This is certain.

  • This is a great one bedroom apartment, and Philippe is an exceptional host. One reviewer of Philippe's condos said that the pictures did not do the place justice (i.e., the place was even nicer than the photos would have you believe), and I have to agree with this. Most places show you wonderful photos and then the place turns out to be awful. The Big Buddha condo is as nice as the photo, and even nicer. The place is very clean and quiet. There is a gas stove top and even an electrical oven! Most serviced apartments just have a crappy stovetop and no oven, and then they give you one or two tiny pots to cook with. Philippe's place had a good range of utensils and cooking pots, etc. The bathroom was big and open, and the place has its own wi fi. As I said in my review of Philippe's two-bedroom ocean view condo, he came on Christmas day to the airport, which is one hour away, and he even took us back and helped us with check in. Philippe is an intense, interesting, and ethical guy who will do everything he can to make your stay excellent.

  • Phillipe is amazing host - great to spend time with at the Sushi bar - nothing short of a A++++ Gentleman!

  • To accomodate another guest that was so in love with Phucket and Philippe's properties, my 3 week booking had to be moved to another unit. The unit I booked was very nice, with all of Philippe's units having the nice touches of granite countertops, very good construction and nice new appliances. The unit that I got however... wow! It's the two bedroom on the top floor of the building with a view of Kata beach. The sunset alone makes it worth it. Everything is very modern with nice clean and bright design. The rainforest is right outside your window so you fall asleep to the sounds of the birds and crickets. Coffee on the balcony in the morning was often the high point of the day as the mid day sun was just starting to hit the balcony. Nights are often highlighting fireworks shows on Kata beach.

    There are a couple of things you should be aware of. When Philippe lets you know you should have a vehicle, heed his words. While the views are fantastic, you are 2km from Kata Beach (further for Karon beach) and about 2 - 3km from grocery shopping. There are many restaurants in the area, but as the property is on a hill you might not want to be walking 1 or more km for every meal. The kitchen is beautiful, but if you are less than 165cm tall it might be uncomfortable to cook as the counters are higher than standard. After three weeks in the property though, those are the only things that I think could possibly be a negative.

  • Philippe is a most magnificent host. From the VERY high quality of the apartments, and more so, to the fact that he is incredibly personable, and truely has gone out of his way to make my stay nothing short of perfect. A man who is very knowlegable of this area, who has out of the kindness of his heart organised every thing needed to make my stay an incredibly pleasurable one so far. And has shared with me, what I can truely say is nothing short of absolute world class Japanese food, a great host, and more importantly, a great guy.
