“Generally good, stunning views, some problems, the house is not accurately described.”

We rented the house over Christmas with our grown up family and had a very good holiday. This villa has lovely views which we very much enjoyed. It has a great terrace with comfortable loungers and an infinity pool. Lots of eating areas and a big veranda outside the large living room. The beds are comfortable and the house was clean. The owner, who lives in Switzerland, was helpful when we made our reservation. We were met at the airport and the local Thai house manager greeted us on arrival, he was helpful but has negligible English.

However, I'm sorry to say the description of the house on Tripadvisor is not very accurate. There are four bedrooms, but only three bathrooms, unless you also count an external shower by the pool and an outside toilet which is part of the separate poolside kitchen area. The master bedroom can only be accessed externally, or via one of the other bedrooms. The external staircase for this room is very badly lit, has different sized steps and risers and is rather dangerous at night.

There is a nice sala also by the pool which has a TV screen and a fan, but neither of them work. There are a number of disconnected media items in the cupboard under the sink in the poolside outdoor kitchen which possibly may be something to do with being able to use this screen, but unless you are very adept at understanding a mass of disconnected electrical leads and seemingly random equipment, they are not much use. There is also a screen in the master bedroom, but again it did not work. When I emailed the owner he told me both of these could only be used by being "connected to a smart phone" which is not very helpful! The TV in the sitting room does have a satellite box attached. At the beginning of our holiday we could only find Thai or French programmes, by the second week the subscription to the satellite service appeared to have expired and the Thai house manager took the card away. We bought an HDMI lead in the supermarket and connected our own laptops when necessary. There is excellent WiFi both internally and externally.

The kitchen is just adequate, but has maintenance issues. The over hob extractor fan/light does not work. The dishwasher only operates on one programme and several of the wheels are missing from the bottom rack which means it's very awkward to load and unload. We had to go out and buy a coffee machine. There is very limited kitchen equipment. There is a very good external laundry room.

I do not mean to make the house sound awful, it isn't. As I said, we enjoyed our holiday. It is simply in need of much better care and maintenance. For example a lot of the light bulbs both internally and externally need replacing. When we arrived the pool jacuzzi was not working, but was fixed after ten days when I complained. There is a potentially lovely water fall feature by the pool and sala, but sadly neither the water pump to power it, nor the floodlighting for it were working. One of the pool lights switches is very temperamental and needs replacing and one of the underwater pool lights has come adrift and is hanging out into the water.

Despite all of the above, I would not have contacted the owner at all had we not had one other very major, very unpleasant, problem which was handled very badly indeed. The master bedroom has an integral bathroom area with two basins, a large shower and a separate ensuite toilet. Unfortunately when we arrived the room smelt a little musty, by day two it smelt of drains. On day three this smell was much worse and I emailed the owner asking for help as it had become almost impossible to sleep in the room. I'm sorry to say that I had to email him three times in all before it was solved. The response I received was to be told that it had not smelt when he was there in November, a subsequent guest had not complained and the Thai house manager thought it was alright. I felt sad that my first two polite requests for help were dealt with in this way and it wasn't until I got cross that some action was taken. By this time we had had to put up with it for ten days of our two week stay. It also resulted in me receiving a very angry, accusatory email from the owner.

The road up to the house is very steep in places, but is not a problem. However, future guests should be aware there is a very large building project in progress immediately behind the house and also another one just beyond it on one side. It rather looks as if building may also start on the other side of the house before too long as the land has been cleared there too. None of this spoils the view, although there were several days when we had to put up with a lot of builders noise from the on-going project on the side. Chaweng has a vibrant night life and although this did not worry us at all, some guests might not be happy about how much surprisingly loud music you can hear in the villa at night coming up from the town. It is worth noting that pool towels were not provided.

“Lovey views, great facilities, not greatest of check ins on a whole a nice place.”

We stayed here for eleven days with my husband our two sons, eldest a sons girlfriend and youngest sons mate. The house is located right up in the hills, whilst this does give you an amazing view, it also means you have to jump in the car to go anywhere (no nipping to the shops) the hill is very steep and even the pick up truck laboured taking us up. One taxi driver refused to take s all the way to the villa leaving myself and sons girlfriend about a hundred yards down with loads of tescos shopping.
The villa has two en suite bedrooms the master suit has the most lovely bathroom and double shower, it looks really luxurious. My only complaint of this room is that it only as an external entrance, there is no way into the house except by going through one of the other bedrooms or using the external staircase and through the patio doors upstairs, this made me feel a little separated and would not be great for a mum and dad with young children. However there is a second en suite bedroom and whilst it was not as luxurious it was perfectly nice. The living area was nice, big table for meals and sitting area. The kitchen is very well equipped, we had an issue with the dishwasher leaking, but my husband sorted this out. The electricity is paid separately which we did know about, it was quite expensive we paid £60 for the eleven days, but you definitely need the air con.
The pool is a lovely area, the outside kitchen was a god send for keeping our beers cold, and the outside toilet area was a big asset.
The check in was a nightmare, the villa manager was away so it had been arranged for us to be collected by the owners neighbour he was a lovely man, but knew nothing of the villa. The gas was switched off on our arrival, and it took us over an hour to locate the gas bottle and get it sorted,. The villa has a lot of lizards some seem to live inside, I don't mind them they are friendly enough little creatures, but it does lead to a problems of lizard poo everywhere. I was constants cleaning up after them!
Over all the villa is lovely I wouldn't stay again, but not because there's nothing wrong with it, I just prefer to be able to go out without always needing to discuss who's turn it is to drive.

Chère Madame Bernard,
Merci d'avoir pris la peine et le temps pour la rédaction de ce long et élogieux review.
Votre témoignage me procure une grande satisfaction à deux titres c'est-à-dire de savoir que vous avez apprécié de résider dans ma villa pendant vos vacances de fin d'année et aussi de rassurer les futurs locataires par vos propos très positifs.

Je suis navré que la pluie s'est fortement invitée durant votre séjour, ce qui est tout à fait inhabituel à cette période.
Encore merci et bonne année.
Bien cordialement
Gilbert
