“Had a great stay!”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This location is as advertised, and the assistance on site is the cherry on top! My group had the opinion of the bedding being a bit on the hard side, although I personally prefer such surfaces. An optional pillow top could be an easy addition, and a few light blankets as well. My group primarily only used the villa as a place to unwind, shower, and catch some Zs before doing it all again the next day...so that is why I have mostly feedback on sleeping. The pool felt great, only had the chance to put my feet in. View from the top of the villa is great... had a nice panoram shot one morning around sunrise...Big Buddha in the background...wow factor! Ian, move a BBQ to the top, and I'll make you a TX-T-bone next go around. I would return, great value! Did I mention that the service on site is stellar?!?! Because it is...hands down, top class & down to earth, just good people! Great food in walking distance, especially the breakfast place across from the nearby 7-11... a rare open breakfast place in Thailand, and had food & beverages galore, which we tried most, lol...5-star for the price of 2!

Liked best: Affordability of the location... good food within walking distance. view of Big Buddha from villa top
Liked least: Group would prefer softer sleeping, and that we didn't get to use the pool much due to full days out.

“A fantastic holiday rental”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from a fantastic two-week stay at the Tamarind Villa. Our party ranged in ages from 4 to 84 so we had a variety of needs to be meet. Ian and Kathy were superb at ensuring all those needs were taken care off. Can honestly say they constantly went above and beyond. The Villa was fantastic, clean, comfortable, and modern with everything we needed. A fantastic home from home. The pool was a big hit with all of us and it was great having it and the villa cleaned on regular basis. The Villa offered each of our three individual familes, privacy when required and also lovely communal areas to get together in. Highly recommend the home cooked Thai meal by Ben. It really was a taste sensation.
One of the main things we enjoyed about our stay at Rawai was the fact that you really felt that you were getting a real Thai experience, as it is relatively unspoilt and not as touristy as the larger towns. Loved it.

“Perfect base for a great family holiday in Phuket”
Reviewed July 23, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our extended family of eight stayed for a fortnight at the wonderfull villa Tamarind, and it was a great base for our fantastic holiday in Phuket. The rental included collection from the airport for our party, which was one less thing for us to worry about and was an example of the great service offered by Trevor the owner and his property managers Ian and Kathy.

Ian and Kathy could not do enough to help us during our stay, providing invaluable advice on car hire, local restaurants, bars (you must go to the Sunshine Bar in Rawai), places to visit, etc. We had a couple of minor teething problems when we arrived, and Ian and Kathy sorted them out without fuss.

A special mention to Benne, who is a fantastic cook who will come in and treat you to the best Thai meal you have ever tasted, in the villa itself. This service is exceptionally well-priced - we recommend the Thai prawn cakes and Satay.

The pool was a big hit for our family allowing us to cool off when sun-bathing. Sometimes photos exagerate the quality...not in this case. Everything was superb.

The villa location was close to beaches, bars and restaurants, but we would recommend hiring a car to get around the island. We would recomend this no matter where you stay in Phuket as there is much to see and do. Ian and Kathy will sort the car hire out for you, without fuss.

One of our favourite days was a trip up to Phang Nga bay where we hired a local Thai chap to take us out in his boat to James Bond island, and around the islands in the bay - unforgettable! Follow the first sign you see when you get onto the mainland, rather than the more commercial boats further round the coast.
