“An amazing experience”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was my 11th trip to Thailand and I can honestly say that this was by far the best place that I have stayed at. Looking at the pictures doesn't do the villa justice. You have to be there to fully appreciate how beautiful it really is.
My sister and her husband and niece and her husband were with us on their first trip to Thailand and had what they described as the holiday of a life time.
We arrived late in the evening so didn't get to see the villa in all its glory until the morning...but boy it was worth the wait. My partner and I stayed in the master bedroom and when we pulled the curtains open in the morning we were greeted by the most fantastic view of the lagoon in front of the villa. It was quite clear that this was more than just a holiday home as there were so many personal touches all around the villa. Everywhere we looked there was something else to surprise us. Everything that you could think of was provided and then there were the things that you didn't think of which were also provided.
The owners kept in touch via email and phone which was a nice touch.
The garden area of the villa was fantastic and very well maintained as was the pool. The maid service was excellent and we had no reason to complain about anything. We had to report the air con in bedroom 3 had stopped working after a power cut. Within 5 minutes of reporting the problem Khun Ya was at the villa fixing the problem...now that's what I call service. We stayed for 25 nights and that was the only problem we had to call anyone for. There was a table tennis table for the more active and the use of 2 mountain bikes which we took advantage of. There was a separate study where the owners allowed you the use of their PC. All nice touches.
The villa is not to far from Nai Harn beach which is one of the best beaches on Phuket. 15-20 minute walk or a few minutes on a scooter which we chose to hire. There are a number of places to eat and drink within walking distance all of which are excellent. Our favourite being Number One. There is plenty to see and do around Nai Harn and Rawai but when you just want to chill and relax what better place than Baan Bua Fun Villa.
We all agreed that if we had to sum up in one word to describe the villa and it's garden it would have to be..PARADISE.
Thank you Phil and Shari for letting us share your beautiful home.

“amazing jem of a villa”
Reviewed April 30, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Just enjoyed two wonderful weeks at this "home from home". Shari and Phil the owners have really thought of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The house and grounds are very well maintained. The size of both the house and surrounding grounds are enhanced even further by the lagoon which the property leads down to. The fish have their watches set to 5 o'clock every day and sit along
the waters edge to get some food. It is so peaceful and feels very safe within this gated estate. We walked to the village at night as it is an easy stroll away and there are many restaurants for all tastes. We always eat thai food and there are some great thai ones. Lovely german bakery at the top of the road on the way back to the villa - fresh rustic loaves and even have a very buzy cafe if you like eating breakfast or lunch out.
There are two bikes supplied for your use - we made good use of them going round the local area and rawai beach area.
Only 2 of us stayed here but plenty of space for a family with their own patio door access to the pool or gardens and private space if they wanted. Many repeat guests in the guest book so that says it all. Would certainly recommend to our family and friends and hope to return in the future.

We come to Phuket every April. Used to own a condo near Naiharn Beach. By far this is the best place we've stayed in Thailand (and we have been coming to the Kingdom for over 20 years). The villa is perfectly set up, beautifully maintained and the owners have anticipated virtually anything you could need. We even rented a car through the book in the villa and it worked out great! This is the best organized villa ever!. It is in a beautiful quiet, luxurious,spot a 15 minute walk from two great breakfast spots (Breakfast Hut and The German Bakery). The three bedrooms each with its own bathroom are really private. There is even a stand-alone study with WiFi where you can work privately.

“WOW What an amazing villa!”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and this lovely villa ticked all the boxes. We have never stayed in such luxury and felt so at home. With white bath robes and slippers in every room, huge fluffy bath towels as well as towels for the beach and for the pool. Everything we needed was provided even a selection of drinks in the study to make cocktails to have in the evening around the floodlit pool!

The villa is situated in a very quiet, peaceful location overlooking a lagoon and the delightful local village is a 10-15 min walk away, where you will be spoiled for choice when deciding where to eat. Our favourite places were Banana Corner, Catfish and Number One, all very cheap and delicious. Our daughters preferred at times to cycle to the village, on the two bikes provided, to collect a Thai takeaway from The Two Sisters cafe or pizza to have back at the villa.

Nai Harn beach is about a 30 min walk from the villa or 10 mins on the bikes, or there are plenty of Tuk Tuk Taxi's for a lift if needed. This area of Phuket has remained unspoilt due to the Budhist Temple which is there, no high rise development is allowed, there are only a couple of small hotels and luxury villas.

If you can manage to tear yourself away from the villa, it is the perfect base to organise trips. We booked two amazing boat trips with Simba Sea Trips they picked us up from the villa at dawn and took us by speedboat to Phi Phi to have breakfast on the beach. On the second trip we went to Phang Nga Bay by speedboat and through caves by canoe. The last trip we did was with Kok Chang Safari, again we were picked up from the villa and went on a 50 min elephant trek, which we would highly recommend.

Booking the villa could not be easier, Phil & Shari, the owners are so helpful and will answer any queries very quickly by email. Getting there couldn't be simpler now that you can fly with Thomson on the Dreamliner to Phuket direct from Gatwick, Phil & Shari will even arrange a minibus to collect you from the airport and take you straight to the villa.

If you are looking for somewhere special book this villa, you will not be disappointed!,

“A perfect holiday location, that will not disappoint.”
Reviewed March 28, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This is our 5th visit to Phuket and we have stayed at Baan Nai Fun on each occasion. It was on our first visit that we instantly fell in love with the villa and decided there and then that we would have to come back.

The high standard and beautiful setting simply screams at you to relax and we found we spent so many hours simply lazing around the pool enjoying the beautiful garden, watching and listening to sounds of the wildlife. From the Mynah birds at dawn through to the cicadas and frogs at dusk and not forgetting the lovely "kissy kissy" calls from the gecko's. It was the perfect atmosphere to unwind and exactly what we needed from our holiday.

The villa will provide everything that you need for your entire holiday and is close to some lovely restaurants that offer amazing food at very reasonable prices. We often found ourselves at Banana corner, Archies or Driftwood that all offer excellent local cuisine and it's a short drive along the coast to Sabai corner where you can watch the sunset with a cocktail or stay longer and enjoy a delicious meal afterwards.

There really is no better place to relax and unwind while having enough choice of local and western restaurants within easy reach to suit all tastes.

Will we be back ....What do you think!

Thanks to Phil and Shari for providing us with such a breathtaking holiday destination.

“Twelve years on...and we still keep coming back...”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were one of the first people to stay at Sharon & Phil's 'House of Dreams'...and we've just had our fifth totally relaxing, battery re-charching holiday there. Why do we keep coming back? Because it felt like (and it sounds like a cliche...but true) a 'home from home'...which it's not...unless you've got Thai high vaulted ceilings, a pool to welcome and cool you, morning and night...and more

“Idyllic private pool villa in paradise”
Reviewed February 14, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Gorgeous tropical setting by quiet lagoon. Private garden and luxurious warm pool that was constantly inviting.Spacious sunbathing areas and adjoining Thai style sala areas that we loved for breakfast, shaded cocktails and dining. it is obvious from the way everything is maintained and equipped to an exceptional standard, that the owners give this villa lots of care and love and go the 'extra mile' with hospitality so that nothing is missing. Wifi was perfect and I enjoyed a utopian office experience each morning relaxing poolside to quickly catch up on emails before 'switching off' for the rest of the day. there was a thoughtful welcome hospitality package including wine, and the bathrooms included quality toiletries. We looked forward to feeding the fish in the lake at the end of each perfect day...and found nothing that we could fault. The area has numerous restaurants of high quality at modest prices and with excellent beaches and sightseeing there was never a shortage of things to do. Very highly recommended!!
