First of all it's not in hua hin it's 35 km's west. You need a scooter or something similar to get around. The villa's name is confusing, we booked through an owner at holiday lettings.co.uk
They call it Beach Village. The owner's name is Darren [--], be very careful booking this way, we are here for a month, and owner will NOT respond to any emails, regarding our complaints.
There is NO roof top bar and BBQ as illustrated, it's abandoned!! There is NO hot tub, the walls are all smashed up, and water is a green mess!!
Nothing is included when booking with this particular owner, and I mean nothing, NO Clean Towels, NO clean bedding, NO TV. There is a charge for everything, which mounts up when you are here for a month. Works out about two pounds a day if you want clean towels and about 8 pounds if you want bed changed. It would have been nice if owner told you this before arrival. It's a case of once you have paid up front, you are on your own!!
Wish I could post photo's!!!!
VERY DISAPPOINTED & ANNOYED
The Villa is set in a 'resort' complex and is one of 7 or 8 around a pool. There is a good breakfast on offer and scooters to hire. I highly recommend the scooters as I was able to go up and down the whole beach in a couple of minutes - 6km long! I went exploring and found a temple within a cave not more than 6km away. I spent most of my time away from the villa but when I returned and the air con was on it was a welcome relief from the 40* heat outside. The villa has plenty of facilities, a good fridge which was needed to cool drinks and a great shower/bathroom. The weakest part is only the keys to get in and out of the villa, they open a sliding double glazed window which didn't feel very secure, though I'm not sure it matters there too much as the people are great. I would highly recommend the location for a break and the villa suited me perfectly.

Just back from spending a month at this property in Beach Village, Dolphin Bay. It was perfect for our needs, being a retired coupe it was perfectly located being just 350 mtrs from the
busy Dolphin Bay but in a quite location surrounded by Coconut groves. The property is one of seven surrounding a swimming pool, wonderful to open the door & dive in for a dip before breakfast. Darryn was great to deal with & gave us plenty of info beforehand. The house is modern with comfortable furnishings & a new TV, only 1 english channel but we took our
Apple TV which was great to catch up on English news and films etc from our Ipad
Would definitely recommend this 1 bed for a couple and there are miles of wonderful beaches & a National Park nearby
