(This is the 3rd villa I've rented through Thailand Holiday Homes - THH)
Booking the villa was a breeze online. Emails were answered quickly as usual.
We were met by Tik at check-in time. We were given a tour of the property and electric meter was checked (take a picture for your records).
The villa itself was very nice. There are 5 true bedrooms (only 4 are ensuited) plus a small room adjacent to the dining area setup on the second floor which has a futon style bed. The 5th bedroom is on the top floor and is the one without an ensuite - someone occupying this room would have to go down to the toilet adjacent the pool in order not to interrupt other occupants in their ensuited rooms. There are 3 ensuited bedrooms on the second floor. The 4th ensuited bedroom is located next to the kitchen on the ground floor and has glass sliding door access to the covered patio adjacent the pool. This bedrooms ensuite has window/ventilation into the kitchen.
The beds... The matresses on the beds were not very comfortable. The owner should consider an upgrade to better quality matresses if they plan on continuing to rent this property. All of us staying in the house remarked about the poor quality of the matresses daily.
The master bedroom with the outdoor ensuite has door access to one of the other bedrooms ensuites on the second floor. This door has a clouded pain of glass in it, so the light being turned on in the ensuite was disturbing in the master bedroom. Actually - all 3 bedrooms on the second floor had clouded glass pains in the bedroom doors - which was not very private.
The pool was GREAT! The outdoor lounge area/patio was very nice and we spent most of our time in this area. The pool table inside was put to use everyday.
The services provided by THH were outstanding as usual. The daily cleaning staff were thorough and quick - they arrived daily at the agreed time and never were a bother. THH even stocked the kitchen with a few essentials - bread/water/juices/milk for our first day.
The villa is set in a very private location. The current map on the THH website does not indicate the true location of the villa. I provided the correct location information to Tik (for their webmaster to modify site), but it has not been corrected as of this date (29/12/12). The adjacent lot to the villa sits on the corner of Pratumnak Soi 5 and Soi Sea 5 - and while we were staying there a property developer had put up signs indictating they will be building 30+ floors of condos on the lot - which will impact on this villa's privacy in the future - not to mention construction issues.
