We had a great time here in Feb. Weather great, used the chef she was really goo - although a little expensive compared to going out but good fun.
The apartment has a few issues - the pool has some tiles that are loose and falling off so be careful round the edges. there are a few lights that don't work. but on the whole all fine. Great wifi and nice and clean.

“Superb Apartment on Kata Beach”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of June and had a superb time.

The apartment itself is stunning, looking exactly like the pictures. The three double rooms are all a nice size, with on suite, TV, air con, whilst the master bedroom has the wonderful Jacuzzi bath.

The kitchen is massive if you decide you’d like to cook, and there is plenty of room and seats to lounge in the dining area. The lounge area also has a speaker dock you can plug your smartphone into.

On arrival, everything was clean and immaculate. We were greeted by Melanie, the property manager, who was very helpful and polite. She showed us around the apartment and how everything worked. Melanie had also brought us complimentary milk, eggs and bread which was a nice touch.

There is complimentary water for the entirety of your stay and a mobile phone you can use to call restaurants and taxis etc.

The views from the pool are lovely, over looking the beach which is only five minutes walk away. We felt this was the nicer end of the beach as well, away from the jet skis and parasailing that's on the southern end of the beach.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance, and we especially enjoyed the Red Snapper.

With regards to booking and communication, the owner Stacey, was brilliant from the outset. She was in constant contact and replied promptly to any questions we had regarding our booking and the local area. She also arranged for a mini van taxi to pick us up from the airport, which was handy as there was four of us. As well as this, I stupidly left my trainers at the apartment which Stacey kindly shipped back to London for me!

We are fairly fussy when it comes to hotels and apartments but we highly recommend this apartment for a holiday in Kata. If you like what you see in the photos, that's exactly what you will be getting. Enjoy.

“Perfect place”
Reviewed April 26, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This place is incredible! The views are amazing and the place is incredible. You couldn't ask for more when staying abroad. The apartment is clean and tidied everyday, beds made and cups cleaned etc. The location is only 10mins from the beach and the good side of the beach where it's less cramped and the food markets are. Just a 3min walk and you are amongst restaurants, bars and 7/11's. It's great for eating out and good out after.

Only downfall is the pool which is falling apart a bit with sharp tiles and rough edges. But this is such a minor thing in the great scheme of the place. Lovely place that I wish I can come back to one day.

“Fantastic Location - Staceys team could not have been more helpful”
Reviewed March 14, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We flew in from UK - family flew in from Oz for a long awaited celebration.
The apartment is spacious, light and has a beautiful view over the bay. I asked Stacey to get the chef to put on a birthday dinner for my brother and they did a splendid job.
We found the apartment safe and the wifi is excellent.

My only negative comment is that there are a few areas of the apartment that need renovation - especially the plunge pool. In which many of current tiles are coming off and are sharp.

Don't be put off - we had a great stay.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed March 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stacey's penthouse was for sure one of my best vacation rental experience so far. Spacial, clean, good location and nice stuffs. The kids loved the private pool, and spend a lot of time there playing and enjoy the great view. Kata beach is 5 mins walking, and so for the supermarket and restaurants, you basically get everything within a short walk. 200 Baht tuk took can basically take you everywhere in the local area, including major night life area and morning local market if you want to cook by your own. We tried Selly's in-house cooking, which is brilliant, and worth the money for sure.

“WONDERFUL FAMILY EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed January 29, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had booked Tasanee Penthouse 10 months earlier as we were an extended family and wonted Christmas and New Year accommodation all together. When we finally arrived we were so pleasantly surprised how spacious & beautiful the penthouse was, lovely large bedrooms and bathrooms. AND the view & sunsets were amazing. Stacey also organised extra bedding for our kids

At first we thought the 4 stories of stairs would be a problem but we did get used to them. Was quite a steep walk down to the beach, cafe's & shops but we had no problem getting Tuk Tuk's when we needed them to get back up the hill.

Stacey was so very helpful with organising day trips and "Fantasea Show' and her very patient driver, drove us around all day to all the local sites, nothing was any trouble & he was always quite happy to wait for us at the temples, elephant ride etc.
Selly was absolutely the best chef in Phuket. The food was fantastic .We tried several cafe's nearby but non came close to how good Selly's Thai food was. Melanie came each day & kept the place spotless, I wish I could have taken these two ladies home with me.
Our kids loved the pool at the penthouse, the pools down staires and the pool at the resort next door. Best cocktails next door.
New Years Eve was amazing, we booked tapas & cocktails with Selly followed by fireworks at the front and back of the penthouse and hundreds of lanterns floating up in the air.

We all loved Kata beach and surrounding areas and the penthouse was close to everything, cafe's, spa's (Kata Spa, the best), fish spa's, Dino's cafe & putt putt, 7Eleven shops, fruit markets and lots of mixed shops. Our kids just loved the whole 14 day experience & would love to come back and as adults we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. A wonderful family experience.

Dear Barbara,

Thank you for choosing to stay at our seaview penthouse. It was such a pleasure meeting you and all your family. We were so pleased we found the iPod for your grandson and shipped that safely back to you. Selly really enjoyed all the private cooking that she did and especially on New Years Eve. Glad that you found plenty of local taxis and the tuk tuks right next door to our building and all over kata beach. The three flights of stairs as you mentioned are easily overlooked once you arrive inside the penthouse with the stunning sea views and no buildings in front of us as we are the first building back from the beach. As we are on the third level of the building, the large lap pool would be on the floor below the ground level which is also another great place to sit and enjoy the sun loungers and umbrellas. They are gentle winding nonetheless we are pleased that you had such an amazing time with us and we hope to see you again soon!
Tropical Regards, Stacey
