This was our first trip to Thailand, and my wife found this villa after searching long and hard on the internet. We were convinced by other reviews, photos, and frankly, the price. And we were not disappointed! The booking was quite easy online as paypal was accepted. The villa owner arranged pickup for us at the Phuket airport, and our driver was waiting with a sign. No issue there...and off we went down to Rawai. The drive is about 45 minutes door to door.

As we approached the villa, I must say we were a bit concerned. The units are located in the beach community of Rawai in the middle of a local neighborhood. Some of the surrounding homes were a bit aged, but the villas themselves are like a little oasis in paradise. They are modern, beautifully landscaped, clean, and have a lovely, intimate pool area. Ours was stocked with some basics such as bread, coffee, juices, snacks, soaps, and nice, cold Thai beer (thank you Ken). The staff greeted us at the unit, helped with our bags, and got us quickly settled.

Inside the unit was a full kitchen with gas stove, microwave, and all the essential cookware. We ate out just about every day (more on that in a minute) but the kitchen was welcomed as we have small children (5 and 6 years old) that prefer simple things like pasta and rice which we cooked nightly. Each bedroom was also air conditioned which made sleeping quite comfortable. The bathroom was small but adequate. Outside the unit was a quaint patio facing the pool area. We sat there in the evenings sipping beer while our kids played in the pool. Very relaxing.

The owners also provided a great folder filled with a restaurant menu, day trip ideas, and local contact numbers. We ordered from their restaurant (Coconut Paradise) every night (8 times total). We tried every Thai dish on that menu. The food is promptly delivered, it's hot, and absolutely delicious. Best part is that we would order appetizers, two entrees, a few beers, and this usually came to about $35 USD. It was an amazing value - money goes a long way in Thailand.

We also rented a car from the folks recommended by the villa owner. I was a bit skeptical with the transaction as it was very informal and only $30 USD per day. However, we received a new Toyota, had no issues with the vehicle, and our refund was promptly returned. In fact, the car rental manager showed us around Rawai for a couple of hours on our first day. This was so helpful.

We also took the day trip to Bon Island as recommended by the owner and had a delicious Thai lunch on the beach. We rented a speed boat to take us over - again using the owner recommendation. It was a great experience. However, get out there early as the larger tour companies start bringing in the tourists by the dozens around 1 p.m. It starts to feel congested quickly.

The best part of our trip was our daily outing to Nai Harn beach. It's a 5 minute drive and has a small area dug out for kids where the natural tide refreshes a 2 foot pool of sea water daily. We sat in the beach chairs provided for the day ($5 USD), drank some Thai beers ($2 USD each) and played with our children in the sand and water. Around noon, we drove over to Nikita's - a great local restaurant on Rawai beach. We typically ordered Thai food and thin pizza's for the kids. We also visited the Sea Shell museum, and hit some local stores for Thai "antiques" in the afternoon.

Overall, this was a great trip. We highly recommend these villas and will return early next year.
