This spacious and comfortable room sleeps up to 3 people, has a private bathroom and views of the tropical rain forest. Access to the rooftop terrace is next to it. Private & quiet, - walking distance from beach, restaurants, bars, shops & nightlife.
We are situated against a mountain slope covered in tropical rain forest with a million dollar view from the rooftop of the white beaches and turquoise tropical seas, as well as the forest. The room is spacious with a separate spacious bathroom with a hot water shower separated from the toilet area. It has an air conditioner, hot/ cold shower, plasma TV with satellite dish, free WiFi, a refrigerator and kettle. Free fresh bottled water, coffee and tea, towels and toilet paper are supplied and replenished daily when needed. Sheets are changed regularly or upon request. Patong is but one of at least 15 more beautiful tropical beaches. The elevation of the hillside allows ground floor entrance to the house, but still offers spectacular views of the beaches, forest, town and sea, either from your private balcony or our roof top terrace.
Although breakfast is included in the price, we also offer delightful BBQs from the rooftop terrace at a minimal additional cost by prior arrangement.
Other services we have are day tours, laundry (at a minimal additional cost), take away Thai food to order from a menu by telephone and invaluable advice on all activities on and around Phuket Island. We also assist with car or motorbike rentals.
Although we do not have a swimming pool, a guest house situated on the same hill about 50m away allow our guests to use their lovely pool if they buy a (email hidden). Since we serve a full freshly prepared homemade breakfast, it is served every morning strictly between 08:00 and 09:45. The kitchen is off limits, but the dining room, lounge and rooftop terrace are shared by all guests.
Interaction with Guests
One of us is normally at the house when guests arrive and check out. We also serve the home made breakfasts ourselves, during which times guests can ask advice or just engage in casual chat with us or other guests should they wish to do so. We do not invade the space of our gusts and let them lead the way in terms of the amount of interaction and advice they require.
We are in a quiet part of an otherwise bustling party town, but walking distance from all restaurants, shops, beaches and night life. There is a 24 hour Family Mart right at the entrance to our complex selling almost everything. The closest restaurant is just across the street.
Phuket is the ideal place to use as a base and do excursions to islands and many other activities in the area. Our guestbook will serve as a teaser for excursions.
Once you are at the foot of the hill in the main road, public transport is the wave of an arm away and caters for all budgets. We have secure parking whether you decide to rent a car or motorbike, should you not want to make use of the public transport (motorbike taxis, tuk-tuks and car taxis) available.
Other Things to Note
We have had hundreds of guests staying at our place and all were quite happy. Please do follow our advice and recommendations regarding the transfer to our place upon arrival. Also rather wait until after you have arrived before booking any activities during your stay. We have very good and valid reasons why we suggest this.
Kindly respect the breakfast times, since we have many other obligations on a daily basis. Since our breakfasts are homemade and freshly prepared, they are served strictly between 08:00 and 09:45 each day. Any person not in the dining room between these times will miss breakfast for that particular day.
Smoking is only allowed in designated areas like balconies and other open air areas where ashtrays and seating is provided - never in the rooms, bathrooms or other communal places. All beach towels should be hung on the rack provided for at the entrance after usage.
Guests are requested to consider all other visitors in terms of noise, space and keeping the communal areas in a neat and usable state for other guests.
Glasses and cups are supplied in the rooms. The kitchen is therefore out of bounds for guests, and is used by staff only to serve our famous breakfasts. Additional cutlery can be provided upon request.
We do offer a laundry service at a minimal extra cost. Whatever we find in the laundry basket will be washed and charged. Feel free to arrange this on a needs basis.
You'll be provided with keys to the house and your room. Please keep the front door locked at all times.
Although we do not encourage outside visitors, we do allow them by prior arrangement and provided that we make a copy of their ID or passport upon arrival.
Seating pillows are provided to enjoy a comfortable time on the rooftop terrace. You are required to bring them back in and leave them where you found them for the use of other guests after you enjoyed your stay on the rooftop.
We had a glorious time on this hilltop. Johan and Max made us feel so welcome. They helped us locate places to eat, things to do, way above and beyond the call of duty. The breakfasts were varied and marvelous, the room spacious and comfortable. Highly recommended.
This was our second stay with Max and Johan, and they are the most brilliant of hosts. The accommodation has everything you could need and Johan does a fantastic breakfast. Highly recommended. Thanks to both for looking after us so well. Looking forward to seeing you both again soon. Arrive as guests, leave as friends :-)
The room was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Johan was very helpful in arranging a pick up at the airport, the hire of a car and bike and went out of his way to get us the best deal. He showed us where to eat and where to shop, and we were able to tap into his seemingly endless knowledge of local conditions. He also speaks some Thai and this was extremely helpful.
Within 3 days of walking up and down the "hill", I could see the definition returning to my leg muscles. That was a nice surprise!
Patong Beach was not what we had in mind when we booked and we decided to go further up the coast to escape the noise and traffic.
We like the spacious room and the place is pretty quiet and nice. However, we felt disappointed as no breakfast provided by Host throughout our two days stay there as promised :(
Enjoyed every moment at this lovely house.
The view on the rooftop garden was fabulous enough to stay every morning and night. Especially the big fireworks celebrating the new year.. just amazing! If anybody has a plan to visit Patong in the year end, you should stay here.
Though it was bit hard to find the villa at first time, but no problem afterwards. Truly kind support and care from Max & Johan was quite enough to make up for this tiny matter.
The room was exactly same as picture and well cared during our stay. And as all other guests said, the delicious breakfast was a nice start for each day.
Really felt being at home on my vacation thanks to Max & Johan.
Wonderful new year guys!
Staying at Max and Johan's place for 22 days was absolutely amazing. The care and generosity put forth by each, made my stay very comfortable and I felt like I was at home.
Johan's amazing breakfasts set the day right; a great balance of everything needed to fuel your body for whatever adventure you may get yourself into. They will recommend that best places to see, how to get there, where to eat; seriously what don't they do!?
The rooftop, my personal favourite; overlooking the city and ocean, will leave you breathless. The peace and tranquility achievable a top the roof is amazing, but also makes for great whiskey sunsets and photos, come days end.
Staying with Max and Johan is so wonderful, when you leave, you'll wish you had booked longer.

An outgoing person that always strive to make people around me happy. Energetic and full of life. I truly believe that my word is my honour, which is why I prefer to always speak the truth even though it may not be the easiest to do at that moment.
I love reading although I have limited time for that. Mostly true stories or academic material ranging from the wonders of the world through to philosophy.
I play guitar, sing and write my own songs. Not the kind of songs that will make you want to dance, but mostly contemplate life and romance.
I eat almost any food as long as it is fresh and clean. I love to rough things up sometimes when I travel, because it seems to make me appreciate my place more when I return.
I am tough on myself. Work hard and play hard. But living a healthy life is also important so I believe I have a balance there.
I believe that every human injustice is born from selfishness. I hate selfish people, and a lot of times people are selfish without realizing it. There is a huge difference between what we need and what we want...
