There's pros and cons to staying at this place.
It is located in a nice and quiet area of Phuket island (but know you'll definitely need a car if you want to do things). The place itself is nicely decorated and enjoyable. The swimming pool is good and the surrounding garden feels private. But you will have to deal with the poor quality management overall:
In short: they send us the wrong paypal address to make the deposit payment. Had a wrong record of number of nights we were staying (our friends booked separately and had the same problem: their stay of 3 weeks was registered for just 5 days, even if paid in full). The safes were not working so we couldn't lock our passports away. Towels refreshed only once a week (this isn't enough when you go to the beach). Poor quality of English in emails (to the point of being rude). Empty kitchen (no wine glass e.g.).
Overall it is not that expensive so you can't expect a 5 star service. But the service is below my previous experiences in Thailand in that price category (and I've been living in Thailand for 4 years now so I've done a few).
So all the problems I mention above can easily be fixed and I hope this feedback will help the owners improve so that, should you decide to stay there, your experience would be improved when compared to ours ;-)
The items that could be added / improved are - addition of a microwave, updating broken utensils. Some Art on the white internal walls would remove the overly austere internal look.
A Chez Lounge on either of the deck areas would also be beneficial as there is no opportunity to relax outside comfortably reading.
Villa Manager - Mr Manot is the consummate host, goes above & beyond for you as a guest. Superb.
Its the location thats is key here, not just its contemporary build. This from regular Phuket visitors.
