Wow! What a special place.
The moment our driver (pre arranged through the agent) brought us into our 'home' for four days, we knew we had something special. My wife was led on a thoughtful tour of guest floors, capable of accommodating a family or group it seems of dozens (I think they say 12?). On the other hand, I stood in a gourmet kitchen with windows open, a cool onshore breeze and marvelled on a sunset reserved usually for creationists.
Thoughtful details abounded - beach towels, local fresh flowers, quality toiletries in all 4 (or was it 5?) bathrooms, selection of games & DVD's, etc - nice touch! My wife had now been shown the top level with its enticing infinity pool & given instructions to plug in our music selection to the speakers. Now with abundant ice, fresh fruit, music and alcohol, my wife and I were happily ensconced far from the madding crowd!
Karon villas are only two semi detached villas. You must book and ask for the one closest to the coast. It's main floor is open to every breeze and beautifully decorated and homely. Every guest room has features that clearly have been thoughtfully and attentively decorated and provided for - even though only two of us were staying there. My wife likes these things. (Did I mention the roof top infinity pool and 'bar environment'?)
The villa is an easy walk down to Karon beach which offers good shopping, food choices and all services. One attraction of this area is it is not Patong or on the other hand, 'exclusive expat gated community', however as you fancy, either are in easy reach.
Check out a map is my advice if you do not know the island. Decide what sort of stay you want. If you decide you would like to experience all the action, beaut beaches, local markets, choice of copious restaurants and then come home to a home set up for fine relaxing, look no further than Karon villa.
