Very welcoming owner and a lovely, tranquil home: private and peaceful but minutes from the centre of town. The breakfasts provided for us were very tasty, and quickly adjusted when we didn't have enough for everyone on day 1. Rooms are spacious and functional, if a little dated, but with the tons of living space around them, who cares! Lots of books and information provided too: a proper home-away-from-home.
Our only issue was not being able to use the hot tub properly: the water wasn't hot! Here's hoping this gets fixed soon, since it was a major reason we chose the property!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our stay at Brahminy Villa was fantastic. It has to be the best value for money in KK. The breakfast was delicious and it was great having a ready supply of water and coffee. The house itself is absolutely giganitc and really beautifully decorated. It really feels like home. The villa also has nice views, lots of sunlight and is well-ventilated. Only downside is the distance to town which, at ~20min, is rather long given the humidity and heat (and potential for heavy rain). Fortunately the owner provides a list of taxis to call (~15-20RM to get anywhere in town).
Only thing missing is a pool. That would make it the ultimate experience!
