the place was really in fact as good as the pictures portray, the manager Suzie she was really sweet and nice and went out of the way to make our stay comfortable. the rental car offered to us by the place was cheaper than what we could find at the airport.
the place is very far from Patong which is the main tourist area, so you need to have a car if you want to stay here otherwise taxi would charge you 800THB one way to pataong.
for all the Muslim travelers this is are is quite good as there are a couple of mosque's and majority of the food places here are Hilal.
I almost forgot there was only one major issue with the villa, it was swarming with lizards inside and out, it seemed like a breeding ground for the reptiles.
The lizards you refer to are geckos which are common in every tropical destination. They are harmless and they eat small insects like mosquitoes and gnats.
The staff at this villa were all very helpful and responsive. We had lots of questions about the location of the villa to ensure we were staying close to other friends who were also here for the wedding. They were really helpful in talking us through where it is, the facilities and location and promptly responded to all our emails and questions. They were also very welcoming in checking us in, setting us up with a local mobile phone and arranging transfers! The cleaning staff were also lovely and friendly. The villa is gorgeous - exactly as it appears in the pictures! Very quiet spot and relaxing, with the beach and a couple of restaurants and a supermarket nearby! The pool is so lovely, we were in it most days!! Really enjoyed our time here relaxing in this lovely spot!
The villa was as nice as it looks in the pictures. The villa manager, Suezi, was very kind and tried her best to fit our needs. The taxi drivers and motor bike renter, that Suezi introduced, were nice too.
Please note that this villa is in a quite area, far from patong, or other resorts in lagoona area. You should rent a bike to hang around the town and you should call a cab (more like a van with a driver) to get to patong. The round-trip transportation to patong costs THB 1600, so if you are interested in enjoying patong beach, this villa may be not the right choice.
Our stay on Phuket was fabulous. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. We woke with a swim every morning, followed by a short trip to the beach. We highly recommend renting a motorbike while on phuket as taxis are expensive. The pictures understate how beautiful the villa is.
