The house is amazing and we had a great experience staying there. However, dealing with the receptionist wasn’t a good idea. The owner (Todd) is very nice and respectful. The only problem was blaming us for things we haven’t done, such as destroying the sofa, which was from the receptionist not the owner. Other then that everything was perfect specially the rooftop pool.
We just finished our stay at Todd’s apartment at Karon beach. We had a lovely time. The place is great and looks exactly like in the pics. Can’t rave enough about the private rooftop pool! It was perfect for our kids as it wasn’t too deep so they could be in the pool on their own while we relaxed in the cabana.
Todd is a great host, he helped organised transport from the airport and been lovely to deal with. Highly recommend!
Great apartment with all the modern amenities and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and great to sleep on. The service was very friendly and prompt. Close to restaurants and beach front. Transport was right outside for longer distance travel. Would highly recommend.
The location was good, an easy walk to beach and restaurants. Sweet and Sour Restaurant nearby has great food. Be aware that you have to walk up a very steep and long driveway to get to the entrance of the Penthouse. We spent many hours at the rooftop pool area. We were charged $300 baht because of dirty towels (not sure that that they were overly clean when we arrived) and a drop of blood on the sheet, which was from a sore on hubbys arm . Overall we had a very enjoyable time in Karon Beach
My husband and I have just returned home after the most amazing 4 week vacation in Todd's apartment. We read all the reviews prior to booking this gorgeous place, and were in no way disappointed with the content of reviews, Todd's description and all the photographs. We have stayed in many rental apartments, but this one wins the prize for 'best of everything'!! There's not much I can add to previous reviews, but I will try!
We had a major issue before traveling to Thailand as my husband had a skiing accident, resulting in him being totally reliant on crutches the whole time we were in Karon Beach! Todd very patiently answered my millions of questions, so we set off very confident that we would have no problems. From check in to check out at Karon View we couldn't have been happier. Todd had given us superb advice, hints and tips - complemented by the on-site manager, Brendan, and his team. They were just so helpful and always available to arrange taxis etc. and the housekeeping was just excellent. I could always find a bright red Tuk Tuk at the end of the drive and, towards the end of our stay when my husband was more mobile, the Tuk Tuk drivers always drove up to the top to collect him.
The restaurant affiliated to the complex delivered our fabulous evening meals - beautifully prepared and served on china (very nice touch). We did venture out in the evenings a few times (can highly recommend Kata Rocks and Mom Tri's Kitchen - both very high end prices, but superb dining and setting).
We spent the majority of our time lounging upstairs in the gorgeous, totally private, rooftop salah and pool. Can't imagine how we would have coped without this superb feature. As I mentioned in the heading, it really is a private oasis with wonderful ocean views, sea breeze, gorgeous sunsets - oh how we miss that, especially now back home in the cold!
Would just thoroughly recommend Todd's rental to anyone who wants to have an amazingly fabulous vacation with a wow factor - but also having many cheaper eating options all within walking distance. The little shop down the street was great for milk, drinks, wine etc. The cart outside with fresh fruit was incredible and the massage place next door - wonderful manicure/pedicures/shoulder/neck/foot massages.
Thank you Todd! As I said, the next time we make it to Phuket, your special apartment is No.1 on our list.
This was our second visit to this fantastic penthouse apartment and it was even better than the first! The views from the huge living are and rooftop pool and sala are incredible. The apartment has everything you need and more, and has amenities beyond what we have in our own home! Much better decorated throughout than a five star hotel. The two pool areas have been recently upgraded and look great including the addition of a snack bar with a full food and beverage menu. Can't wait for our next visit!
This is a very comfortable apartment with everything you might want. It is close to restaurants and shopping, close to the beach, and well managed. My favorite aspect to our five day stay was the fact that it is very quiet, very private, with great ocean views, and includes a beautiful private penthouse swimming pool and garden area, which we called the "Perch" and which was really hard to leave. The place made common folks (like my family) feel like royalty.
