Thanks Stuart for everything. We felt welcome and Stuart was very helpful. The location was amazing. The villa had pretty much everything you need for your short or extended stay. I will definitely book at the same location on my next trip. I just wish the electric bill was added into the reservation.
10th - 25th Feb 2017
We have just returned from spending 2 weeks at Sunshine Villa (3 Adults & 2 young children) to celebrate my mums 60th Birthday and what a fantastic time we had.
This Stunning 5* Villa met all of our needs. Stuart the owner was brilliant with excellent communication and efficiency throughout a smooth booking process right up to our departure home to enable an easy life which is what we needed with Children.
There was a cot and a single bed placed at the side of a double bed to stop our children from falling out. Nothing was too much trouble and the owners went out of their way to accommodate us.
Stuart met us as the villa and took us on a tour around the area the following day advising us of the best places to eat and go etc. and by doing so, saved a lot of time getting our bearings.
We wanted for nothing at the Villa, Stuart organised our transfers and even arranged for the lovely trustworthy cleaner to babysit one evening.
The Villa is positioned amongst the friendly locals and it is peaceful and safe.
The mobile phone in the villa was very useful for contacting taxis and booking tables.
The Villa is very spacious, modern and immaculately clean. Our children loved the very large & beautiful pool and gardens, in particular playing football and running through the water sprinklers that come on at 5pm every evening to keep the grounds so lovely. I felt the whole place was surprisingly bigger than the pictures on line. There were beach toys, books and even sun creams for our use and we had a lovely welcome pack on arrival. (Thank you Stuart for the cold beers).
There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby, I felt 2 weeks wasn't enough and we will most definitely be returning to enjoy the things we missed such as boat trips etc. The weather was perfect, no rain for 2 weeks.
Southern Phuket was gorgeous with stunning beaches. Especially Nai Harn and Kata Noi which are 10 mins by car away from the villa.
The Big Bhudda is well worth a visit for stunning views. There are many viewpoints that are well worth stopping off at.
Some of the restaurants that Stuart recommended were fantastic with great sea views and delicious food such as (Sabai Corner), you would never find this place if it wasn't pointed out to you.
There is a new bar / restaurant called Jenny’s just around the corner 2 mins walk from the villa. Food lovely and very cheap, we used this a lot for bringing home takeaways which was very useful with the children who loved the Spaghetti Bolognaise and spring rolls.
We flew with Qatar Airways who were very comfortable and great with children. They got a lovely bag of goodies to keep them occupied and the inflight entertainment is the best.
I can highly recommend Sunshine Villa for a perfect holiday and we will return.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Sunshine Villa. Very helpful information book with lovely ideas for things to do, good beaches and islands to explore, restaurants to eat at and bars to visit. Or just relax by the pool and read a book, a beautiful place to take a vacation.
Such a great find - traffic was tough on the way from Phuket airport as we landed just as rush hour started but was well worth it.
Stuart and Nancy were there to great us and show us round the villa. 3 fantastic bedrooms and once the arguments about who was in what room we had a great chat with Stuart who gave us some great tips as well as left a fab book with even more restaurants, beaches etc to see.
The villa itself is stunning - the top floor room just divine and a really comfy lounge area downstairs along with a huge kitchen, washing machine, 2 downstairs bedrooms as well. All 3 bedrooms are en-suite and there is a 4th toilet next to the kitchen.
Wifi is superb and huge TV - ( We didn't use the TV as there is so much to see outside )
The pool is clean and a good size for swimming or floating in the sun!
An electric gate to the drive way makes entrance and exit easy.
We found a great bakery walking distance so had breakfast there every morning - we hired a car and never drove more then 15 minutes to a great beach - 5 minutes for a huge choice of restaurants and 5 miniutes for shops selling food, gifts, chemists, 7 elevens etc.
Would highly recommend this villa for its great location which offers peace and relaxation if you want it - the madness of Patong just a drive away - the beaches of Phuket just down the road, great eating and drinking nearby and best of all a fanbtastic owner who saved us days of mistakes by pointing out the best things to see or go to or eat or drink etc etc!!!
We will be back - many many thanks
Thank you for meeting us on arrival and taking the time to show us the ropes.
The Villa was perfect for our needs - pool fantastic - location easy to get to and from the beach.
All recommended restaurants met our expectations and the local knowledge you imparted proved more than helpful. Thank you.
Nestled between The Big Buddha hillside and the East Coast of the island and equidistant from the beaches of Rawai and Nai Harn, this brand new property is fully equipped with barbecue, hairdryer, towels, washing machine, safe and all that one needs for a relaxing 'no worry' holiday. Coffee machine and toaster resulted in quick easy breakfasts. Visitors will need a car, but supermarkets and excellent restaurants (as detailed by the owner in a well drafted brochure provided) are within 4 minutes drive. The weekly maid service was quick and efficient and the owner provided us with all the information and background information we required. The cleanliness, security, comfortable beds, views and its quiet location in a ‘dead end’ road were the Villa highlights. The only downside was having to re-locate to the upstairs balcony to find some shade at midday! Otherwise there was always a shady spot to find by the pool between dips in crystal clear water, We will most likely return.
