Bearing in mind we were staying in Thailand this Villa lived up to our expectations. Cheaper (buy half!) and and more spacious than a Hotel, probably not quite as polished as you would get from a hotel but more than made up for it with freedom to come and go as you pleased with the option of cooking with the 2 ring gas burner , microwave, toaster and rice cooker.
Mr Supon lives just over the road and is there to make sure our stay went smoothy.
To wrap it up if you are looking for 5 star accommodation then pay more and go to a hotel, if you want space like us with 2 teenagers then this in my opinion fits the bill.
We stayed at this house for 6 weeks and really loved it. The house is about 15 minutes walk from Surin beach and about twenty-five from Bang Tao. If you have children you'll probably want to have a car to get to Bang Tao as the taxis/tuk tuks are absurdly expensive. You'll need a car for Phuket anyway and there are a few local rental places. Mr Sarpong also knows a few places and will be able to get you a discount. We visited most beaches in Phuket over our stay and we found Bang Tao the best by far. It's 4 km long and it had just the right amount of emptiness and activity that we love. There are places to eat and drink that range from huts to flash bars playing lounge music so you'll easily find what you want.
As for the house itself we were very comfortable there. The beds are all excellent and it felt spacious, open and light. There were five of us staying there and it never felt overcrowded. The house has been laid out nicely and everything you need is provided. Perhaps the best feature is the pool. Its clean and private and we spent many happy lazy days relaxing there with the kids. One thing people should be aware of is that the house is actually two separate flats so to go upstairs you leave by the main door and go up the outside steps. This caused a few problems with our two year old who would get a bit confused sometimes when people popped upstairs and when we were going somewhere. However this will not be an issue for most! The house is also 20 m from Tik restaurant which as we learnt over the holiday is one of the best in the area. It's a bit more expensive but the portions are good and they happily deliver. Finally, the best part of the house was Mr Sarpong and his daughter. We love these guys and are grateful for all the help, cleaning and advice they gave us during our stay!
Will hopefully return one day and thanks to Chaumont for accepting our booking.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Perfect, quiet location. Private but close enough to beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops. The locals are so friendly. We ate at the restaurant - Tik's - just up the road. We would love to come back one day.
Again an excellent stay with all things we need. Not far from the sea and the Tesco Lotus. Alsso the help of mr. Suporn was again very good
