Wow what can i say? Such an amazing place. Myself, wife and 3 kids have just had an amazing holiday at the Glasshouse. The place is much more than we could have hoped for. Stunning views from all aspects. Mrs Pond the house keeper was amazing. Mr Bao the local taxi driver was amazing going out of his way to make sure we had an amazing time. He and his wife can organise any trip or experience you want, he will also beat any price you can find. We also had the services of the private Chef, WOW this lady can cook. Better than any restaurant. Our personal tips, Little Restaurant on hill at bottom of drive to the left is amazing, very cheap. £28 for 5 of us. Massage girls next to Baos office are amazing. Try the Thai Massage ( if you dare ). Days out. ATV, Waterfalls & white water rafting where so much fun, Phi Phi, James bond and Kai islands are a must, Chalong Fishing park is so much fun, Naka weekend market is a must, two great beaches near villa or get Bao to take you to Kata, Patong or Karon beach, Nicky's Handllebar in Patong is such a good place to eat and drink. Atmosphere was amazing. Just chilling by the pool with the amazing views. Thank you.
The Glasshouse was incredibly beautiful and exceeded all our expectations! The house afforded us the luxury of having a chef almost every day, they use the outdoor kitchen mostly unless they are teaching you a personalized cooking class, so the level of relaxation and luxury was really incredible. The house is so well equipped, we travelled with 3 other families with 5 kids total and they had a ball in the pool and at the world class beaches that are within walking distance. There was a lovely happy hour at a local resort and the low season was perfect without tons of tourists, it felt like we had the place to ourselves. There is a lovely spa within about 30 paces as well and the massages, staff, and facility are excellent! The owner and staff at the house are also very helpful and very informative and responsive helping to plan your trip to the fullest. Highly recommended, we will be back one day!
As soon as you book your stay for the Glasshouse, your vacation essentially begins. Bradley, the owner responds to your every enquiry within hours and provides you with invaluable information that helps you plan your journey to paradise.
If you are looking for a busy, congested, touristy holiday you should consider other options.
Bradley arranged a van to pick you up at the Phuket airport about 50 minutes away. Our party of 14 arrived and were greeted by Mrs Pond. Though she tried to give us every instruction on how things operated, we were mesmerized by the beauty of this villa and its endless views throughout the tour.
Three spacious bedrooms and a ping pong table on the top floor, one bedroom, two living areas and a dining room and kitchen on the main floor, and two bedrooms each with separate bathrooms on the bottom floor, provided us with more space that we ever needed.
Naturally we spent most of our time outside by the gorgeous infinity pool. With an outdoor shower, there is really never a need to even come inside.
A short walk to Ao Yon beach, and you can spend all the time you like relaxing on the sand and even get a full hour massage listening to the waves for 400 Bhats.
A 24 hour 7 Eleven store is practically at your doorstep that provides you with the basic necessities. A few steps to the east, Ao Yon Seaside restaurant is an excellent option for fresh rather inexpensive Thai food. We also hired a chef for a few days who prepared amazing Thai dishes, Bradley can introduce you to him, well worth his fee for large groups.
We could not be happier with the service we received from Ms Pond and the driver Mr Bao. We had an amazing time at the Glasshouse and were so sad to have to leave.
Again Bradley's communication leading up to the stay made the whole experience even more enjoyable.
Strongly recommend this property!
8 Adults and 4 children - we had a wonderful time at the Glasshouse, from the pool is a beautiful views of the ocean and you can catch a glimps of the Big Budda. Bradley is very responsive and answer all of my questions within 24hrs or less. He promptly refund my security deposit on the same day I check out. The villa manager Khun Pond and their neighbor Mr Bao is very helpful. All appliances are in working order and air conditioning everywhere! There are two beaches within walking distance! We found a few restaurants close by - but we hire the chef to cook for us, so we only eat out once. This is a great place to enjoy the sun, sea and relax!! Can't wait to return for another visit.
If you are looking for a Villa in Phuket, stop your search right here and book immediately!! I have just returned from a 10 day say with family and friends. We booked for a 40th birthday with a large group of 17 people. We booked in Jan 2017 and in the 10 months leading up and the days we were there Bradley was absolutely outstanding in everything he did for us, his care and dedication to the customer ensured that we had the most perfect holiday. Getting booked was easy and stress free and all the information you need to know about the area and the villa was to hand. After 10 ,months of waiting and searching through photos of other peoples stay at the villa comes with the trepidation of 'will it be as nice in real life?' well I can tell you from the minute you pull up on the drive - it immediately strikes you that this is a very very special place, and your first walk up the steps into the gorgeous open plan living and dining space will blow you away. You then think that it couldn't get better than that, UNTIL.... you walk through the sliding doors to the pool and see one of the most amazing views you will see anywhere!!! Perfect views across Chalong Bay - Amazing, so good you can see Big Budda across the bay - so clearly its almost like it was put there just for the Villa. The rest of the house is just out of this world, with 6 fantastic bedrooms all special in there own way. Upon arrival we met with Khun Pond and Khun Boa - these two special people ensure you have absolutely everything you need whilst there, and nothing is EVER a trouble. Khun Pond manages the house with such professionalism and goes out of the way to make sure you are settled in and on hand for any and all requests. Khun Boa lives just next door to the villa and any transportation you need - he is your man!! His prices are very very competitive and can arrange any short or full trips for you. As there was 17 of us, he arranged a private speed boat to visit, Phi Phi, Khai Island, including snorkelling (a full 7 hour day trip) and the price was cheaper through a travel company. We also hired the services of the Chef, and if you have booked or thinking of booking and are unsure as to weather to book the chef - let me tell you now it will be the best money you spend while in Thailand! we booked him for every day we were there. Apart from the trips out - he was there for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner! all meals were decided by the group and he delivered on the most delicious food every single meal, everything from Thai to more western dishes, he was unbelievable! and the value was unbeatable - for 3 meals a day (and big portions at that) it was less that one meal out in a restaurant (per person).
Not only internally is the Villa superbly presented and serviced - but its location is second to none! two amazing beaches within a 5 minute walk, no large developments around (two local villages end of the road), a mini market - with the friendliest staff you will meet - 3 minutes walk - and some fantastic little restaurants on the road and loads on the beach - mean if you do want to wonder from the luxury of the Glasshouse you will still experience the holiday of a life time.
As I said at the start if you are looking for a villa in the Phuket area - your seriously need to look no further - it was the best decision I ever made and 17 people had the holiday they will never forget thanks to the support and organisation of Bradley, Khun Pond, Khun Boa and the Chef!! I and my family want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we hope to return in 2018!
Recently stayed at The Glasshouse for ten fabulous days. The photographs on the web site are amazing but on entering ...it took my breath away. It is absolutely first class.
The pool area has fantastic views across the bay, Infact Big Buddah is clearly visible on the other side of the bay.
We had the services of JoJo the chef, his talents are remarkable. The food he prepared for us was always excellent. Everything was absolutely delicious, well presented never failed to delight us.
We also used the services of Mr Boa next door. We usually needed two mini buses which he organised for us. He also arranged a speed boat for us to 'island hop'. He is very friendly and very efficient.
Our stay was truly magical. A once in a lifetime experience.
Had an amazing 2 weeks at The Glasshouse. We were 4 families and there was plenty of space and everything we could possibly need. Kids loved it!
Far enough from the throngs with two nice beaches a few minutes walk away. Good range of restaurants bars and cafes within walking distance. Our favourite was the Beach Bar for early dinner with amazing sunsets. Great local food and very reasonably priced pina coladas!
Very handy to have driver available as and when needed to take us around the island.
We even managed a over night mini break within our holiday to Phi Phi Don which was idyllic.
Would definitely recommend.
