About This Listing
Bay View Lodge 1 and 2 are on the hillside overlooking Chalong Bay with the Big Buddha of Phuket looking down on us. Cool sea and mountain breezes make for an agreeable stay. We're 5 min. walk from the nearest Thai/Western restaurant and 10 min.from the shopping Mall.
We have two rooms to rent. One on each side of the house facing the sea. This is on the eastern side of the house. They are equipped with refrigerator, TV, electric kettle, microwave, fan and air-conditioning .
Two big rooms overlooking Chalong bay, Phuket. Each room has, TV, fridge ensuite bathroom, walk in wardrobe, electric kettle and microwave. Also safe,hairdryer and iron with ironing board. Set in tropical gardens with a magnificent view of the islands. There is also a pool with swim jet and a "Sala" to relax under.
We are on the hillside in front of the Big Buddha of Phuket. Within 5 minutes ride is Chalong Pier, diving, deep sea fishing and trips to the islands. We are 10 minutes from Rawai and the beautiful beaches of NaiHarn. Other places to visit are Pnang Nga (James Bond island), Patong and it's nightlife and Wat Chalong, the biggest temple on the island of Phuket .
You can also take an elephant tour or ride a quad in the jungle. Why not go horse riding or ride a jet ski at Kata or Karon all within 15 minutes ride. There are taxis (tuk tuks) but I would not recommend these, it's better to rent a scooter for the day and go sight seeing in Phuket town or visit the beaches. There is always something to do in Phuket. For food there are top restaurants serving european foods but I prefer the small Thai food stands or restaurants, where food is cheap and very good.
The rooms are cleaned and linen changed twice a week.
We also rent scooters and a small car. In the room there is also the possibility to sleep two more people.
Everything in their room plus the pool, garden, Sala and swim jet . I live upstairs which is private but I will surely invite you for a drink and a chat.
Interaction with Guests
Come and have a drink and appreciate the view from upstairs. I'm there to help my guests get the best out of their stay in Phuket
The calm and the view. We live on the hillside where in the evening you can hear the elephants or the monks praying at the Big Buddha. All this but we're still not far from all the sights and things to do all around Phuket. We are walking distance from a Thai/European restaurant and the shopping Mall 10 minutes.
Taxis are expensive and public transport practically non existant. But we do rent scooters and even a small car fo very reasonable prices. We can arrange an airpot pickup if needed.
Other Things to Note
If Bay View Lodge 1 is rented have a look at Bay View Lodge 2. It's at the same place and is identical.We can arrange an airport pickup service for those who need it. We ask (phone number hidden)ht depending who is available.
Smile and don't use the pool after 9 pm and always survey your kid's when their at the pool.
Don't spoil Kim or Titi. They're my golden retrievers who love people.
Also the rooms are non-smoking, but you can smoke in the garden or the balcony.
Please turn off the air conditioning and fan when not in the room. We supply towels for the room and the pool. Please don't take them to the beach.
It was like visiting our own family! Phen & Steve can give you everything to enjoy your stay in Phuket, they are fantastic hosts! Everything is in one place: taxi service, laundry, motorbike rent. We been extremly happy to stay at Bay View Lodge. A perfect place for a family. If you wish to stay at home on a very hot day you can enjoy the swimming pool, if you wish to go to the beach the farest is only 20 minutes away with the motorbike. Far enough to enjoy the view and quiet and close enough to reach in a couple of minutes the local market, Tesco, Chalon pier or the beach. Merci Phen and Stephen!
Steve is a very nice person who gave me so many valuable advices for our touring. His house is on the midway of a mountain, away from the noise. If you want to relax yourself, Steve is a wise choice.
We had a great time here. The room was very big and very clean. The shower and closet were just as great. The view was incredible!! We rented the scooter and it was a wonderful way to get around. Great location and very close to Siam Safari and the Big Buddha!
We arrived quite late due to a long hour plus queue at immigration. Our loyal taxi driver waited and met us with a big smile and we generally tipped him once at Bayview Lodge. Although Stephen & Wanphen were away at the time their friend Ya greeted us and told us everything we needed to know about finding food, money changers, Lotus supermarket and Cookies restaurant down the road. We love walking, so we made good use of the hilly area by walking everywhere. The room was great, the view spectacular and the dogs very lovable.
Excellent accommodation in a lovely clean and high quality home. Steve was a charming host who took time to ensure we had everything we needed and felt at home. The location is perfect for those who want to explore Phuket on their own and get away from the tourist areas when needed. Steve also made hiring a scooter for transport (essential here) very easy. His advice and experience on getting around Phuket on a scooter was invaluable!
Un coin de paradis. Si vous cherchez la tranquillité et vous voulez vous réveiller et petit-déjeuner avec une vue spectaculaire cet endroit est fait pour vous. C'était un plaisir de profiter du calme et d'entendre les oiseaux chanter, voir les papillons volés dans ce jardin, poumon à oxygène et rempli de verdure. J'ai été ravi de mon séjour, la chambre est impeccable, bien équipée, avec réfrigérateur/congélateur, micro-ondes, bouilloire, services, assiettes, tasses, etc...ventilateur, air conditionné. La salle de bain est très propre et spacieuse. La chambre est nettoyée 3 fois par semaine, les draps, les linges de bain et de piscine changés avec la même fréquence. Naturellement on est sur la colline alors un moyen de locomotion est impératif d'après moi et les scooters que vous pouvez louer sont comme neufs et pas plus chers qu'ailleurs. J'ai profité de la piscine et de son swimjet qui est un excellent exercice sportif pour bien démarrer la journée, du tapis de yoga pour faire des exercices et il y a même un TRX pour les adeptes. Le 1er supermarché (Tesco Lotus) est à 3 minutes en scooter et Villa Market (haut de gamme) à 5 minutes. Les plages de Ya Nui et Nai Harn sont à 15/20 minutes et celles de Kata et Kata Noï à 10/15 minutes de scooter. A 10 minutes Soi Tiger pour les plus sportifs qui aiment le Muay Thai ou le conditionnement physique. En somme la maison est bien située et le cadre est incroyable. Le Big Buddah est tout proche et vous servira de point de repère. Dès mon arrivée Stephen m'a guidé dans Chalong pour me suggérer des endroits où bien manger et m'a montré les plages les plus proches. Stephen est un hôte vraiment agréable et sympathique qui vous laissera en paix, vous fera vous sentir comme chez vous et qui sera toujours disponible si vous avez des questions. Un immense merci pour tout Stephen j'ai vraiment passer un merveilleux séjour dans un endroit magnifique et si je devais retourné dans la région c'est sans hésiter que j'essaierai d'avoir une chambre chez toi. Pob kan mai et Sawadee Krap!
If you want to be away from the noise and crowds of tourists to feel the closeness of nature and boundless calm-you are here. Awesome place, caring and attentive owner. The room is equipped with everything you need, the location is such as hot and bad weather are carried in comfort (air conditioning is not even needed). Motorbike rental necessarily need to take, it allows yourself to get to almost any part of the island, excursions are not necessary, you can find and view every place yourselves. Stefan tells and shows you what to see and where to go. The room is constantly cleaned. The pool, sun beds, a terrace overlooking Chalong Bay, lots of greenery, flowers and fish in aquariums- I can enumerate all the charm of this place very long . A large supermarket and Chao Fa West road with lots of cafes and shops are near. We fell in love with this place. Thank you very much, Stephen!

About the Host, Wanphen & Stephen
Ex specialized teacher now living but not working in Thailand with my wife Wanphen. My wife is from Issan, ( north east Thailand). She has spent the last 13 years in Switzerland. She speaks Thai, English and French. She was a teacher while in Thailand and then worked in a hospital in Switzerland. I was born and schooled in England but for 35 years I lived and worked in Switzerland. Since 2010 in Phuket, Thailand where I play golf, go diving and sailing. I also like meeting and getting to know the people who come to stay at my place. For those who like to dive, Chalong pier (where the dive boats leave from) sonly 5 minutes away by car/motorbike. If you need advice or help in going somewhere then I will do my best to help you. I can also pick you up at the airport or bus station and then rent you a car or motorbike. I like people to come as guests but hopefully leave as friends.
