It was our first trip to Phuket, yet we got beyond what we had expected for!
The stunning website led us to expect such a comfortable place to stay, and our expectations were exactly met.
Perhaps it was Phil's obvious passion about what he is running here that wins us over when we just stepped in to the hotel.
We arranged airport pick-up, to and from the hotel, and we also asked for tips and tricks to travel around the town, which then he gave us good recommendation to a very nice travel agent.
We stayed in Superior room, and it was comfortable, clean, and even Phil himself did say a thing or two about the fridge that anybody would find it surprising! :)
Bedsheets are clean and replaced daily. Spacious shower room is also cleaned daily. Hot water & usual condiments of coffee and tea are also available.
Location wise, the hotel is situated somewhere between Karon and Kata beaches. Not exactly opposite the beaches, but around 15-minute walk will take you to both beaches. The obvious benefit from the location is the undeniable quietness, which is what me and my friend were looking for on the first place.
All in all, it was a great experience staying there, especially with Phil and Joe's unbeatable hospitality that made us even miss them most. And of course, their newborn baby and cute dog! :)

We booked 2 nights (approx £41 a night) at Villareal Heights via Agoda as a result of reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were enroute to Ko Lanta and was looking for somewhere quiet to stay on Phuket. The location is off the main road at the beginning of Kata. Although it's in a quiet area of the resort, Kata and Phuket wasn't really for us. However being off the main drag allows a bit more relaxation, with a 10-15min walk to the beach and bars/restaurants.

We were upgraded to a suite as a result of Phil and Jo recently becoming proud parents. The apartment was big by Thai standards with a really comfortable bed. It was obvious great efforts had been made to furnish the apartments and get everything right. The air con was a little noiser than some we had encountered in Thailand.

On our arrival Phil took us out in his truck around the local spots in Kata and up to the viewpoint just in time for a beautiful sunset. He also recommended a very competitive Travel Agency which we used to book a trip to Phi Phi Islands.

Phil always seems to be there to help with any problems you might have or share his advice and experiences.

Having to choose a place in Phuket, even Kata, was initially challenging with the number of options available. Eventually we decided to settle for Villareal Heights, since the hubbie was highly impressed with the very positive reviews here.

We stayed in the Exec ocean view suite for three nights. The room is new, clean and very cosy (yes, its true. The bed's extremely comfortable!). The apartment is located right in the middle of Kata and Karon. It is located on the main road which runs parallel to the beach road. Riding to the beach takes about 5 mins. If you're there, don't miss the pad thai shop down the road! Phil's effort in driving us around for a quick orientation was very useful and much appreciated. He also helped us to get some good rates for renting a bike and a snorkelling day trip.

We had a really great stay and trip and would be back!

Three of us shared a mountain suite for a week...with an extra cot bed. Appt is really nicely fitted out. Cant fault it!. The view was sweet, the cleaner was reliable, appt is in a good location with thai food options nearby. Would reccomend you get a bike to get around...its cheap and gives you complete freedom. Phil will help you with this and anything else you may desire. Both Phil and Jo are fabulous. They really love being the hosts and will make your stay!!

It was our first time in Phuket and we were debating on whether to stay in Patong or Kata/Karon. Being non party people and total beach bums, we decided to stay in Kata/Karon and Villareal Heights was rated number #1 in Kata so we booked there. Phil and Joe's hospitality started even before arriving at the Hotel. I received very prompt responses to my e-mail inquiries and they even booked us a mini-van from the airport going to the hotel. Once we got there, Phil took us around in his truck and showed us around Kata, recommending restaurants and sites that we might enjoy. He also took us to the place where we rented our scooters (and returned it an hour later because we realized that we don't know how to drive a scooter! haha) and also recommended the travel agency where we booked our day trips.

The location is a quiet but is a good 10-minute walk to the beach and eating spots. However, the walk is not a big deal for us. Our rooms are so clean and the bed is huge and comfortable! I can't remember having a better night of sleep on a vacation.

Do note that since their hotel is quite new, many drivers in Patong may not know the lhotel yet so be sure to know the nearest landmarks to the hotel so you can give out specific directions.
