Looking for a nice Phuket villa - any suggestions?

We are a childless couple booked as far as KL on Air Asia on May 4th and we're tossing up 'where to fly to' from there for a beachside holiday for 2 -3 weeks. We don't need to be right on the beach but it would be nice, however a short walk is ok. We'd prefer a location that is not too touristy with a clean beach and private self contained small cabin / villa though we're open to suggestions. Not keen on the big tourist / high rise hotel or getting bugged incessantly by vendors. our budget is $700 - $1,000 pw - any suggestions? we were in Phuket twice in last 18 months - loved the northern end of Phuket & also Nai harn area. We have stayed at Indigo Pearl - nice but a bit distant, also at Le Piman in Rawai, again nice but a bit motel like and too far from a beach & the Kris resort at bottom end of Bangtao beach - lovely area. Would like to try something different - may be a private villa. Any suggestions please?

Thanks Tim,

Looks of interest however I should point out that it is at Nai Yang, not Nai Harn. Nai Harn is at the very southern tip of Phuket. Never the less it looks to be very good value and I will make an enquiry of them, so thanks again

I have stayed in both the Superior Seaview and Villa. I loved the Villa for the space and the spa, but the view from the Superior room and beach access is hard to beat. I couldn't stay more than one night in the smaller room! (Too cramped with both me and my wife) Next trip I will be staying in the studio near the pool which I think is a good compromise. The hotel is the total package, freindly hosts. helpful staff and great restaurant - bar deck area. The sun terrace overlooking Ao Kata is excellent. Hope this helps.

Many nice villas to be found on these sites. Don't be afraid to stay in Patong, Kata or Karon as you can find villas there away from the touristy areas...

Have a look at Manathai in Surin Beach if you like the north. It maybe a little over $1000 for the week but they may have some stay pay deals in May.
