Ocean Breeze is a low-rise apartment building designed like campus in tropical style with large private balconies configured for lounging, eating and socializing. The buildings conjure up images of yesteryear, quiet times. Six beautiful colonial buildings are around the console and a stream fed lake and a large swimming pool with a waterfall Cascade interspersed with richly landscaped gardens.
The apartment is fully furnished and equipped with bedding, cutlery, crockery and glassware. The house is decorated to a high standard of modern Thai furniture. The bedroom has a king size bed with multiple French doors to the veranda and a beautiful lake view, pool and mountains. The 24 m2 veranda complete with two fans, daybed and dining.
Layan Beach is the local name of the northern part of Bang Tao Beach, north of the Laguna Resort. Bang Thao is a large open bay with one of the longest beaches in Phuket. Dry season swimming is excellent, and north of the bay's End is a smaller bay, almost completely enclosed, at the mouth of which some beautiful coral. Numerous places to eat, tour companies, and other tourist facilities available either at Laguna or in the nearby town of Thale Cheong. But Layan beach itself is mainly undeveloped and remains wide open unspoilt views so often advertised on the beaches in Thailand. Renting a car or motorbike to go around is recommended as the area is quiet. The beach is a small restaurant for breakfast and dinner, beach chairs provided, but not required. Just around the cornor is one of the best Thai restaurants in Phuket, economically priced, but of a quality found nowhere else on the island. Layan is ideal for families.
The apartment was as described (luxurious, quiet, and fully stocked). Further, Jaap was wonderful to deal with. After sending me directions to the apartment, unprompted, he told me how to catch a taxi from the airport, and then, when he learned how late I would arrive, set up and even paid for a taxi to pick me up. His restaurant recommendation turned out to be one of my favorite experiences of my entire trip to Phuket. Jaap replied to messages promptly and was enjoyable to interact with.
Jaap is an excellent host who goes out of his way to make your travel a good experience. He was extremely helpful in the enquiry and booking experience and even more excellent after it. His response times are phenomenal and the crisp and effective answers to any questions were very much appreciated.
His property in ocean breeze is wonderful as well. The apartment is spacious and was more than we could ask for as a group of 3 folks. It's got practically everything you need, it's better than any hotel experience I've had. The only issue if you had to nitpick was that it is far away from the parts of Phuket that are full of hustle and bustle. Whether that is good or bad, depends on what you're looking for. We rented motor bikes and the view and riding experience is so great we didn't mind the distance at all. If I'm gonna be back in Phuket ill surely give Jaap a buzz once again.
We enjoyed our stay at the Ocern Breeze apartment. It was a very comfortable and luxurious apartment in a complex with all the facilities, you would expect of a prestige hotel. The apartment was very clean The swimming pool was extremely large, and the environment was very quiet and tranquil. Although close to the Laguna rintegrated resort area and beach, you definitely need a vehicle at your disposal. We highly recommend this apartment.
jaap has a very nice apartment very close to the beach in the top luxury bay area of layan. its where all the super hotels such as banyan tree, chedi, amanpuri etc. are. the apartment is only 20 min. from the airport and very easily accessible. it has a nice pool and is pretty big.
jaap was a really great host. I particularly like his fast responses at any time of the day, he would write me tips of how to get around or who to contact, that was really very helpful. thank you very much for making my stay most memorable.
Gorgeous set of apartments in a quiet location. A little remote - although I liked the idea but having no easy access to transport was a bit of a problem. However, the management office (on site) can call up a taxi for you if you can get there before 5pm. There is a fantastic pool to swim in.
Apartment was of a one bedroom, plus a spacious bathroom and a functional kitchen with all the tools you need. The spacious balcony was divine. We had few meals out on the balcony, listening to the chorus of frogs (or some other creatures). In the lounge is a set of TV (very few channels) and dvd player which came handy on rainy nights. There is plenty of space for storage which was handy to keep the place tidy during your stay. There is a local restaurant that will deliver food at no extra cost! This was super handy when it was chucking down with rain and wanted to stay in for the night.
But do prepare to pay (does add up a bit) for taxi services, alternatively rent a car or scooter for the duration of your stay. We have asked our taxi driver to take us to a supermarket and we stocked up for drinks and snacks, including some delicious fruits.
Host: Jaap is a great communicator and super prompt with questions, flexible and understanding. He is thoughtful, too! He has placed a 2 huge bottles of water for us when we arrived at the apartment fridge at 2am. Not only that, he has booked us a pick up service without inflating costs.
We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Breeze (and thoroughly LOVED the pool), and would love to return some time in future... with a car :-)
