I am Jaap Spreeuwenberg, I host "Luxury penthouse in Kamala Beach" and "One bedroom luxury penthouse".
What an amazing stay at Jaap's lovely apartment! Jaap is the most helpful, courteous and accommodating host! He was always extremely rapid with his responses, the communication was quite excellent. The apartment is gorgeous. Very spacious, with everything one might need, and the rooftop pool and lounge area is a perfect bonus. Around the clock security, manicured grounds and an enormous pool right outside the elevator doors.. Kamala is a wonderful neighborhood. Walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants and the beach. Early morning walks through the streets of Kamala quickly became my favorite part of the day. Smiling faces of the locals, delicious food stalls, fresh fruit stands. We had such an incredible stay we truly didn't want to leave. Quickly felt right at home! Thank you kindly Jaap for everything!
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.
Jaap is fabulos landlord.He was a great and concerned host, and also very responsive towards any wishes we might have had at the point. It was clean and we an gladly recommended apps and Jaap as host again. Swimming pool at the roof was awesome at the night, stars are some brighting and birds have nice voices. Fabulous appartments! I truly recommend staying there for anyone looking for a place in KamalaRegent.
We were lucky to be able to rent Jaap's Luxury penthouse in Kamala Beach during our visit to Phuket. We have been living in Phuket on several occasions and I must say that Jaap is one of the nicest landlords I have met. From you place the booking until you leave, he is very attentive and informative about big and small stuff, everything you would like when renting an apartment from a stranger. My wife, daughter and I can highly recommend Jaap as a landlord and not to forget the apartment is awesome and situated in a really nice and calm compound close to Kamala Beach. We will defintely use this place next time we go to Phuket!
Jaap was a pleasure to deal with, he was always prompt with responding with queries despite the difference in timezones. He organised an air-con mini-van pickup from the pier and from there it was comfortable 30-40 min ride to the apartment.
Upon arrival, there was staff at the resort to organise keys and the usual instructions. The staff there are very friendly and willing to help with booking taxis or hiring a car or motorbike which we did (car) and I highly recommend this as a way of seeing the island. We came upon a gorgeous beach in the National Park just near the airport, few people around, and coral with plenty of fish just 50-70m from shore. I snorkelled until I was sunburnt!
The location was close to Kamala beach's main drag of shops, bars and restaurants. About a 10min easy, flat walk. A 1min walk is a 7-11 convenient shop. Right next to the main entrance to the complex is a small restaurant serving local and foreign food at a good price. Good iced coffees too!
The facilities are as pictured, some furnishings are weathered but still in good condition. The rooftop pool was private and perfect for sunbathing and a dip but I also enjoyed swimming in the bigger pool downstairs.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here. It had everything I needed with a quiet and clean environment. I previously stayed in Patong and hated it. I swore I'd never go back to Phuket but staying in Kamala and in Jaap's apartment has totally changed my mind. I will be back! :)
Great apartment in a quite location. Our kids really enjoyed having the small private pool. Jaap was very helpful and easy to contact and communicate with. I would recommend the apartment to any of my friends traveling to Phuket.
My fiance and I had a great time staying at Jaap's Kamala Regent penthouse. Jaap was a solid host and provided an informational PDF, checked in with us during our stay to see if we had any questions and even arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport. The location was a close walk to the beach and the main drag of Kamala, which is admittedly a bit sleepy compared to Patong, but more rich in local flavor. The apartment itself looked as good as the pictures, had all the necessary amenities and the view was even better than advertised. The walk to the mini gym took all of 45 seconds from the door of the building and the pool was within hopping distance. Overall we had a very nice trip and are happy that we chose to go with Jaap.
Jaap is a very nice person, very friendly with a good communication. His flat is very cool (bedrooms, swimming pool...). It was a pleasure ;)
Thanks you Jaap and see you soon. Ben
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.
I've been staying at Jaap's apartments in Phuket, Thailand for over a week in August together with my friends. The apartments were very clean and well-furnished, exactly as advertised. The price/performance was very attractive too. Jaap has also been very responsive and helpful about anything we needed, and made good suggestions on where to go in Phuket or where to do shopping. I would recommend his properties, either in Phuket, or elsewhere to all travelers looking for good quality.
