Excellent accomodation, spacious clean , comfortable, awesome pool, next to 711 , restaurant and massage parlour, always tuk tuk out the front for very short and agree to only 200 baht fee for stop anywhere In Patong.
Loved the convenience and facilities of this location, wifi included. Would return again
This apartment is awesome , 2 bedroom 2 bathroom so spacious. The pool is magnificent and it is way cheaper than resorts close by. There are always tuk tuks and taxis out the front to take you anywhere in Patong for 200 baht, make sure you agree on price before jumping in. There is an awesome Thai restaurant next door selling Thai and American breakfast and French fries , which my daughter loved. Next door to that is a nice little massage place, and a couple doors further down is 7/11 that sells bread coffee, drinks and beer for quite cheap. This place was perfect for a family of four, and we love it because of the pool and spacious apartment. There is also a pool bar , but I havnt visited.The residence is on the outer fringe of Patong , so it's not crazy, but a short ride to jungceylon mall or Patong beach. Great place
We stayed at The Residence in Kalim Bay in November 2014 as a family of four. We absolutely loved it. The location was far enough away from the busy Patong, but still close enough to Patong that you could walk in. We loved the space the apartment gave us, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, lounge and dining area, washing machine & dryer, 3 televisions, and being on the ground floor was a bonus as we had direct access out to the lovely pool. We also enjoyed many yummy cocktails from the pool bar which were very reasonably priced. There are also some great restaurants close by.....Baan Kalim and Pan Yaah being two of our favourites. There was also 24 hour security and free WiFi. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Patong but still close by. And if you don't want to walk, there is always a tuk tuk on hand. A special mention to our lovely host, Mint, who took care of any request we had and made our stay even more enjoyable.

We stayed in this apartment in October 2014 - we were 2 adults, a toddler, and a baby. Overall this place was great. You are close to the action of Patong with shopping, restaurants and what not, but far enough away that it doesn't feel like a rowdy spot to stay with children. There are food stalls and restaurants within 50 m of the front door, plus 7/11 and other places within walking distance. A quick car or taxi ride or a 20 minute walk takes you to the center of Patong. Mint, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful. 2 minor negative points - 1) there was mold in the shower and a slight smell of mildew throughout the apartment. I find this to be the norm in other places we've stayed so it didn't worry me too much and 2) you don't have a view from the apartment itself, but being on the ground floor has the added benefit of being able to walk right out to the pool, which we appreciated. Overall we were happy!
