This beautiful 4 bedroom villa built is in a small development consisting of 4 identical villas and is just 100 meters from the amazing (some say the finest) Bang Tao beach.
The villa is set in a beautiful peaceful setting with views of the surrounding mountains from the upper level balcony that is accessed from the main lounge and master bedroom.
The property comprises of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, large kitchen with all mod cons, outside dining area with BBQ area and seating and is just a few minutes’ walk from mini markets, bars, massage shops, fish spa's, conventional spa's, art galleries, restaurants and much more.
The closest restaurant is about 50 meters to the villa and is open from about 7am, serving breakfast to about 12 midnight and does not shut throughout the day. There are in excess of 30 bars and restaurants in the village and more on the beach, serving Halal food, Western Food, Indian food, Thai Food and much more.

Car rental fees start from 1,200 baht per day depending on the model of the car and season. Cars include Toyota Yaris, Toyota Vios, Chevrolet 7 seater, BMW X4, Audi TT, Mercedes E Class and more. These all come with full insurance.
A private driver for up to 12 people in a minibus can be arrange for 3,000 baht for a full days sight seeing of 8 hours. Please inform us beforehand if you require any of these services as we will need to make a reservation for you.
To us you are our friend’s not just customers and we'll do our best to make your holiday as special as we can with our help, without being intrusive.
Our years of experience and of hosting more than 3,000 customers have taught us many things. Most importantly we understand that no 2 sets of guests and families are the same as the last, each one is treated as a new friend with new needs and desires for their trip.
Therefore, we ask when making an enquiry we ask that you do a bit of research into what it is you want to do and see in Phuket and we will sort it out for you. We can plan days and activities for you without any hassle at all but we need a general idea of what you want from your experience in Phuket. For example, a family with small kids is not going to want an ATV and white water rafting experience, whilst similarly a group of young graduates is probably not going to want a day out at a children’s adventure park.
Popular activities include
1)Island trips by boat – Phi Phi, Maya Bay, Coral Island, Similan Islands, Khai Islands, James Bond Island
2)Night and day fishing trips
3)Adventure activities like ATV riding and White water rafting
4)Elephant Tracking in the jungle
5)Trips to monkey temples
6)Trips to traditional Thai temples
7)Private driver days around Phuket – includes Canoeing, elephant tracking, trips to the waterfalls, temple visits, cooking class, monkey show, snake show, Big Buddha etc.
9)Phuket Fantasea Show & Simon Cabaret show
10)Visits to Pearl factory
11)Phuket bird park
12)Phuket water Park
14)Scuba diving courses
15)Jet skiing, Para sailing. Wake boarding and other water and beach water sports/activities
We can orgnise all of the above for you either before or when you arrive and get significant discounts off the brochure prices from our sister company.
The beach is just 100 meters away from the villa so the location is great. There are small convenience stores within walking distance and tuk tuk's that charge only 150 baht can take you to the big shopping centre within 5 minutes if you need to visit a supermarket or Bang Tao's excellent afternoon and night markets.
Our maids come to clean every 3 days if required and will take away your laundry to our off site laundry and wash your clothes, return them on the next day (if you leave them in a bag in the morning) and all of this is done for free!!! (This is for properties where there is no washing machine installed)
I live locally too and very often around for customers to make sure everything is ok and you are happy. If there are any problems, there is always somebody to hand to assist you, normally within a few minutes.
We are always available for our guests. Right from the moment you land or arrive in Phuket we have our driver collect you from the airport so there are no complications or worries on arrival. Our drivers are available 24 hours a day so no matter what time you arrive, we have somebody to collect you and check you in.
Once you have given us your flight details we will take care of the rest for you.
You will be told what the drivers name is and he will be holding a sign board outside the main airport terminal with the name IN ENGLISH (if
your airbnb name is written in another language please supply us with your ENGLISH Spelling of the name to make it easier for us to write the sign).
You will be given contact details in the case of emergency. The driver will then take you to the accommodation where a member of my staff will be there to meet you. You will then be given the check in paperwork by the check in staff which will ask a few important things such as when do you require maid service, what time do you wish to check out, any other requirements and you will also be given the meter reading for the utilities. On check out you will be given another reading by the check-out staff.
If you arrive late at night or after a very long flight, we understand that you may be tired and need to rest. This is of course fine and we just say that we will come and see you the following day to ensure you fully understand things and are ok.
There will then be the opportunity to talk to probably Am about any activities or excursions you want to arrange – we can come up with a plan for you for your holiday and get the ball rolling with organizing it all for you.
We are local people so are always on call. We are not available after 10pm - 8am but always available by telephone during in between hours and will always get back to you within the day. We live within 5 minutes of all of our villas and apartments so if in the area can generally come within a matter of minutes if an emergency arises.
We very much encourage people to use telephone apps so that the costs of calling etc. can be eradicated from both your bills and our bills. I am very keen on LINE, (Hidden by Airbnb) and (Hidden by Airbnb) so we would encourage people to download these apps before they arrive so that communication is easy from the start.
We aim to make our guests stay as fantastic as possible, offering all our help, knowledge and wisdom, often going with you for dinner and showing you the local sites if that's what you want from us. By the same token we are far from intrusive but always available.
Water and electricity is not included to encourage guests to save on aircon consumption. It is very cheap and the meter is read on check in and check out. This is nothing to worry about but we just do this as many people will leave the apartment with all aircons left on in the morning and return at night so it is just to encourage people to be a bit more responsible so we can pass the cheap costs on to the customers in the future
We also provide airport transfers but ask that guests pay the driver directly. The fee is 1,000 baht for a minibus (12 people) and 800 baht for a luxury 4X4 that fits 7 people. We have baby safety seats available so please request this if needed. There is no charge for a baby safety seat on airport transfers but if customers need this on private drivers, we have to rent them in and they are charged at 150 baht per day.
No smoking inside but plenty of space outside. Please just come, have a great time and respect of course the rules and cultures of the Kingdom of Thailand.
Please respect other guests when using the swimming pool and facilities. Unnecessary noise late at night is not allowed.
The neighborhood is magnificent. Set in a peaceful tropical garden but
with great access to all local shops, bars and restaurants the villas could not be better located.
The closest restaurant is 50 meters out of the main gate, rental shops, massage shops etc. also just outside of the main gate. Phuket airport is just a 25 minute drive away and the night market and Tesco lotus 5 minutes by car or bike. Patong is further down the coast about 25 minutes away.
Please note: We get many enquiries and bookings from people looking for the “Patong experience”
I do not have properties in Patong and can say that Bang Tao does not offer the same as Patong. Patong is an over run tourist spot, full of bars, shopping outlets and is very (Website hidden by Airbnb) is the place for clubbing youngsters and does not offer anything close to what Bang Tao and local villages offer. Please carefully consider what you want from your holiday. If you want the hedonistic lifestyle of a rock n roll star then Patong is your place, if you want the real experience of Thai culture, people, food, villages, relaxing beautiful beaches then Bang Tao is your place.
Getting around is very easy. We can organize pretty much anything from a simple motorbike, car or even a private driver. Taxis are available at very short notice also.
Other things to note.
1) Please pay special attention to our points about guests paying for utilities.
2) The listing will tell you the maximum allowed people in the villa or apartment. Please do not try to cheat us into booking for the maximum amount and then turning up with more than what you tell us. We simply won’t allow the booking to proceed. Please be honest with us about numbers etc.
3) Be very conscious that although we can be flexible or check in and check out times, busy times of the year we may not always be able to do this. If you are arriving on a very early morning flight, for your own comfort and relaxation we would strongly urge you to book for the night that you are arriving so you can arrive at the accommodation for early check in, relax, sleep and start your holiday feeling nice and refreshed.
4) Driving licenses are not required in Thailand to rent vehicles. Passports are enough to secure rental vehicles.
5) Visas can be gained on arrival into Phuket. If you are staying for less than 45 days in Thailand a visa on arrival is perfectly acceptable. This is free of charge.
6) International travellers. Please note, when booking flights ALL budget airlines go from Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok. You will probably arrive at Suvarnabhumi International airport.
DM airport is about 1 hours’ drive away and at the end of a long flight is a really tiring and tedious experience, especially if travelling with kids. My recommendation would be to go direct to Thai Airways website and book Thai air. They DO NOT charge for baggage up to 30kg, depart from Suvarnabhumi, have an inflight nice meal and cut out all the hassle of changing airports etc. They are a tiny bit more expensive but believe me, for somebody who travels long haul several times a year between Europe and Phuket, it is very much worth the extra few $s to save the pain.
7) Once you have got your flight details please send us all information and total numbers. If you are part of a large group and travelling separately please send the group leaders name for the airport signboard. Your driver will have a sign outside the main building with your name clearly visible.
8) All towels (including beach) and bed linen is provided by us. Please bring your own insect repellants and sun tab lotions. We do not provide any lotions such as these.
9) Baby chairs and cots can be provided for families with young children at no additional cost. Please inform us if these are required.
10) If you require things at the villa for early morning / late night check in such as beer, breakfast material etc, please inform us when you tell us your flight details. Our staff will happily get these at the apartment / villa for you so you can settle in and not have to worry about shopping trips. Please note there is a 300 baht (plus of course the groceries bill) fee for this service.
11) Please pay all taxi drivers their fares directly and not to any other staff member in cash.
12) Each villa or apartment has a staff tip box. Our staff do a fantastic job for above average salaries but of course often have big families to feed and school so are always grateful for any tips. This also makes them feel more valued and comfortable that they feel they have done a good job for you.
