“Just coming down to earth ...”

.... after a fabulous trip for our daughters wedding in Kata. Most of us stayed at the villa and absolutely loved it. A beautiful property with a lovely outdoor area. We hardly spent any time inside! As other reviewers have said, Ian & Kathy really make the difference in their approach from welcoming us on arrival, through to showing us around the town and providing a helpful agent to come and talk to us about excursions. The property is well cared for by a lovely lady, Joom (I may have spelt her name wrong) who lives nearby and came in regularly to clean, change linen etc.
this was our first trip to Thailand and we'd recommend it heartily. The people are gentle, friendly and courteous. We loved it!

“An Amazing Experience”

I can not say enough positive things about our recent stay at Kata View Villa! 6 of us travelled to Thailand to celebrate a friend's 30th birthday and after reading the positive reviews for this villa, I knew it was where we should stay.

Booking and pre-departure contact was easy, concise, and helpful. Ian and Kathy were great at making it easy to make our deposit, collecting flight info, arranging airport transfers, providing recommendations etc...

Once we arrived at the villa, Ian and Kathy were on hand to show us round, get us settled and give us a quick tour of Kata that ended with a trip to one of their favorite local venues, Sabai Corner. The view from Sabai Corner was incredible and quite the way to experience our first Thai sunset!

About the villa itself: it's a great layout with a good amount of space. The pool and sala area in particular are fabulous. We spent plenty of time laying about and catching some sun. The pool is quite large, clean and the perfect way to relax in the hot Thai sun. We loved having a full kitchen to prepare our own meals. Having a washer/dryer in the villa was a great perk as well. Knowing we could do laundry on-site allowed to pack lighter which was convenient when making international transfers. All of the bedrooms were well-appointed and the en-suite bathrooms were lovely. Some toiletries were provided (loofah, body wash, soap, toilet paper) which was a great touch. The maid and linen service was especially nice.

About the location: the Villa is a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of Kata Beach. Personally, I prefer this. It was fantastic to be amidst the madness of the beach for part of the day (especially since we were there during Songkran) but be able to retreat a quieter, secluded location. It's nestled on top of Kata Hill for some great views of the water and Big Buddha. It's an easy 20 minute walk to Kata Beach if you're up for it, and we rarely had a problem hailing a tuk tuk on Patak Road if needed. Our group was primarily from NYC and London, so we're not much in the way of frequent drivers. Thus we didn't do a car hire, but if that's more your style, Ian and Kathy can easily help arrange one.

About Ian and Kathy: our group could not have asked for warmer hosts! They were excellent at communicating with us both pre-arrival and during our stay. Knowing they were just a phone call away was incredibly reassuring. They were spectacular in providing recommendations, answering questions and especially with little touches that made the trip memorable! In particular, arranging for a private chef and even picking up a cake for our birthday celebration! Thanks to them both for making our first trip to Thailand easy, fun, and memorable!

I could go on for paragraphs more about why this whole experience was incredible, but I'll stop! Just know that after experiencing it firsthand, I know why all the reviews on here are so positive. Thanks Ian and Kathy!
