I'm a 40 years old French man living in Phuket and Luxembourg.
I'm an art dealer but i have many other activities.
Lionel a toujours été à l'écoute de nos demandes, par contre contrairement à l'annonce l'appartement ne fait pas plus de 90m2 au lieu de 150m2 comme décrit dans l'annonce.
La master bed room est corect, mais la deuxième chambre est minuscule (moins de 8m2), le troisième lit se trouve dans le dégagement (bonjour l'intimité).
Le ménage est sommaire et au bout d'une semaine nous n'avons plus de papiers toilette de disponible, beaucoup de fourmils, house du canapé est sale.
La résidence est relativement éloignée de la plage, il faut obligatoirement un scooter ou une voiture.
We really enjoyed our stay at Lionel's home. If we had any trouble with anything he was right there to help out. The house is on the 3rd floor over looking the pools. Very peaceful as the complex is surrounded by a jungle. If you are feeling adventurous there is a lovely jungle trek just outside of the gates. I do recommend a scooter or vehicle as the town is not walking distance. We truly enjoyed our time at his home.
The apartment is spacious and convenient. The location is good we enjoyed gorgeous view. Wifi is quite fast. The host was very communicative and helpful. Everything was perfect, except water. You will have to wait 1-2 hours to fill in a bathtub in master bedroom...
Nous avons passé un super séjour a Kamala.
L'appartement se trouve dans une résidence très bien entretenue , pas bruyante, avec deux piscines tres sympa.
Merci encore Lionel pour ton accueil et pour les conseils , j'espere a bientot
Lionel was very kind to our every little problem, the house is situated just above Kamala in a nice complex with pools cascading into the green of the "jungle", and consists of two rooms, one with private bathroom with shower and bathtub, the other smaller has only two single beds pushed together and a closet, the third bedroom is an area created by a booth between the other two rooms, the house is bit but I do not think is really 150 sq. There was some problems with the Wi-Fi, for the rest I suggest the requirement to obtain scooters and enjoy the holidays!
We just wanted to thank you guys for a really nice stay. It was beyond our expectations. We were truly happy happy with our apartment. Lionel was truly a friend, he helped out with everything he could, and was always just a phone call away.
We were truly in love with kamala, our neighborhood was good and quiet, no stress at all. Again thanks for everything, we will for sure come back again soon.
The apartment was very nice and felt like a home away from home, the pools and surrounding rainforest were also very relaxing. However the apartment was dirty upon arrival including the bed sheets. But when we informed Lionel of this he quickly ran the sheets to the dry cleaner and was very sorry. The Internet didn't really work for most of our stay. The apartment is is situated in a area which is beautiful but you cannot walk to the beach or any stores or restaurants. If we had our own car the location would not have Been an issue but we were unable to go anywhere without quite an expensive taxi ride. Also the apartment in the pictures is not actually the apartment up for rent...none-the-less still a nice apartment. Lionel was a very kind and helpful host and would recommend him. Thankyou Lionel
My family just finished a 7 day stay at Lionel's apartment in Kamala Hills. We got off to a rough start when he said we could not get in the day we had previously arranged and paid for, thus leading to an extra night in the hotel...he expressed there had not been a notice from Airbnb about our booking one month earlier and hence it was not clean on time. He asked us to stay in the hotel one more night, but then only refunded us the nightly rate from his rental, not our actual hotel expense which led to a lot of frustration and a mediation with airbnb. Anyhow, we did have an overall decent experience and our children really enjoyed the place. The positive attributes include: nice kitchen, excellent media station (cable, tv, internet, etc), great open floor plan, nice balcony, terrific view and the pools are great. That being said I will list a few of the things that did not quite hit the mark: some smell of mildew in bathrooms and one bedroom, pictures were not from the same unit, furniture and furnishings not nearly as nice as what pictures show you, not truly a 3 bedroom (a screen kind of separates an open space into a "room", and the description is not fully honest. There is no gym. It has no dryer or fireplace as listed. It is most definitely not 150 sq. meters. Also, it notes that it is handicap accessible in the description which is far from accurate, though this was not an issue for our family. There was no manual as described so I was having to contact Lionel about things like network passwords and the like. Also, the place was not as clean as we would have expected or we have previously experienced in other rentals. Our family made the place work and had an enjoyable time overall. I just feel that the description and pictures should be updated to more honestly reflect what you are getting from Lionel. I think many of the issues could be positively changed with a little better cleaning/care, a manual to tell you how to operate everything, an honest description, and attention to detail in what the average family needs in the kitchen (more glasses, plates, silverware, a place to put wet dishes, etc.) In the end, in order to get my money partial refund from my first night's stay I had to meet Lionel in Bangkok airport during my layover only to end in a big disagreement. Personally, when renting a place I don't like to have so many encounters with the host... texts, phone calls, stop overs to get his food, and meetings to handle transactions...though from what others have noted in their reviews, they may enjoy more of that.
Nice and peaceful apartment with a great view of the tropical hillside. Lionel was a very efficient and entertaining host and I would thoroughly recommend.
We had a fantastic stay in Lionel's apartment. The location was great, it was lovely to get away and up into the lush green hills at the end of the day. Lionel arranged a car for us so that we were able to get around the whole island easily for the week. We loved the pool, very clean and inviting. The TV and sound system in the apartment were good. Lionel was a very helpful host, answering any questions we had, arranging a taxi to the airport and even picking us up from a local restaurant on our first night. The apartment was great value for money. Thanks.
