First of all, let me begin by describing the ideal tourist for whom these Villas are most suitable.
-The ones with a limited budget
-Families and couples looking for spacious suites
-The ones who are very specific about cleanliness
-The ones who can do without the densely populated areas such as Patong
-The ones who are looking forward to minimize usage of taxis but rent scooter bikes (and hence be able to visit entire of Phuket on their own)
-The ones who require a very nice clean pool
These are the most basic requirements if on your agenda, this is Definitely the choice for you. If you are planning to stay in Phuket for a longer time (a month or more), i seriously dont see a reason why you would ever reject this. They had amazing deals for such people.
We came here in July and the rooms were very cheap in the low season, I recall 1500 baht per night. This is the basic attraction which fully compromises on the distance of the Villas from airport and Patong areas. Anyone who has been in Patong knows how expensive, noisy and polluted it is. This is the Thailand I loved the most, peaceful, clean, lush and filled with locals.
If you read about the amenities from its official site you will know that it has dvd players, air conditioners, VERY USEFUL KITCHEN (a blessing in Thailand). Furthermore, it is extremely near Seven 11 mart and you can easily buy all your groceries from there. Walking distance basically.
The beach is not on walking distance, it would require a scooter bike, but its the most peaceful, beautiful and relaxing beach in Phuket with very less people. It also has the most scenic sunsets.
The owner of these Villas is a gentleman, who fluently speaks English and we are very grateful for him being as hospitable as he was. I recall him being European.
There are some very chic local bars and restaurants footsteps away, with Plasma TVs, Billiard tables, bike rentals, fuel refill station and so on. Being a Muslim family we didn't visit these, but we do know the tourists love them. Most of them had been staying here for months (better deals).
The tourists in this area are the more sophisticated ones, who are on courses, or relaxing and stay away from the touristsy over populated areas. I saw several elderly people, riding bicycles, reading books, walking to the Seven 11 mart, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. So this is mainly for such kind of tourists.
We had been to Bangkok so we saw all the night-life we wanted to see. In Phuket we want to relax, be away from the city and we got it. It's perfect for couples who are not into the hype, because if you are, you will be disappointed.
The Villas are obviously new, and its amazing how you get a complete villa at your disposal and not just a room. Again, the economical price is the reason why it is such a hit. It doesn't offer you luxury, it offers you clean basic necessities and actually more than one could ask for.
So if you are either into populated areas, or fancy luxurious stuff, don't expect that here, because the purpose of these Villas is not to facilitate such tourists. I also met an Australian guy here who told me he has joined a Thai boxing course (very near to the Villas) and is hence staying there.
I think it is pleasantly active in the peak season with lots of life, but in the low season, it was a charm to recognize.
The only negatives i can think of are its location (its TOOO far away from the airport but quite near the sea port if you plan to go to other islands)
The fact that it doesn't offer the city's bustling night life, which may disappoint some tourists
The fact that it is not right next to the beach and you need scooter bikes to go anywhere other than nearby mart and restaurants and bars (which are a REAL treat).
It gets kinda noisy at night due to the nearby bars and their loud music, that is if you are a light sleeper.
That's about it. Thank you to the owner who gave us such a wonderful time.
P.S: Dont hire bikes from them, They are too heavy and my mom kinda fell down trying them the first time. Most owners are nosy about 'paying for the damages' even when there are virtually non. The owner had this partner who behaved the same way.
Overall, this was the best stay on our Thailand trip, and we are so thankful to the owner! :)
Choose a villa as distant as you can get from the entrance and preferably towards the right. They ar...
