Just returned from a 12 night stay at Kingsacre. It's our 2nd time here and it was just as good as the first. We stayed in Villa 1 which has been renamed as dragonfly since our last visit. The villa was lovely with a really comfortable bed (which some people seemed to strugle to get out of in a morning). The fridge was kept well stocked with cold drinks and more importantly tonic water (to keep the gin company) and bottles of Chang. One of our favorite parts of the holiday was returning to the villa after a nice meal and drinks in Nai Yang to enjoy a night cap on the patio. Glen has even fitted a ceiling fan to make sure we didn't get too hot and Christine provided candles and citronella for the oil burner to keep the pesky mossies away.
The gardens look as beautiful as ever. The pool was clean and cool and the sun beds comfortable. We didn't even go to the beach in the daytime as Kingsacre is too relaxing and is like your own personal garden and pool.
As ever, Glen and Christine looked after us. They really do go above and beyond what most people would do and you always appreciate the personal service they provide. Nothing is too much trouble and if you can put up with Glen's eclectic music compilations (ranging from Bay City Rollers to Rolf Harris to a touch of classical) together with his singing at breakfast, you do fine!! And speaking of breakfast.....a good cup of tea, together with orange juice, fresh fruit, cereals, toast and a cooked breakfast (full English, scrambled or poached eggs, omelettes and now, by popular demand, bacon and egg butties). All cooked to order by Glen and really good!!
It's a wonderful place owned by a wonderful couple with a wonderful dog, Tam. We can't recommend it highly enough. We will be back!!
