The villa was more than we expected it to be! We were with a group of 11 people and all felt very comfortable in the villa. The pool and living space is great for large groups or families with children. The villa is very private, that being said you need a taxi everywhere but the beach. We arranged a private chef for one evening and it was wonderful! The cleaning staff was always on time and the owners are fantastic! I would go back in a second. It is a beautiful place to stay and we had a wonderful vacation thanks to the glass house!

“Stunning view and tranquil setting”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We were 3 couples and 3 children visited Phuket for the first time and we had great time at the Glasshouse.
The architectural villa is beautiful and spacious with well maintained tropical garden. The environment is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. What we preferred the most is the spectacular view from the swimming pool -specially for the sunset. But almost everywhere from the house, one can have a very nice view on the Cha Long bay.
The staff was very efficient, friendly and helpful, making our stay more enjoyable.
I highly recommend this superb retreat as we all enjoyed every minute of our 3 weeks stay at the glasshouse.

“Perfect reunion of 3 expat families with young kids”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were three families, traveling from 3 countries, with four children ranging in age from 4.5months to 2.5 years.

The property easily fit us, plus one nanny. The rooms are large, and if your child has not moved to a bed yet, can easily fit a travel cot (the 2.5 year old slept in the room adjoining his parent's). The property also supplied 2 cots and 2 high chairs. The pool did not have safety features, but due to its position (in front of the lounge area), the children could be supervised at all times.

Bradley Merchant and the off-site property manager responded to all queries in a prompt and helpful manner. A taxi service is available from the house next door to the property.

Please be aware that if you are traveling as a group, that there is only one return complimentary transfer. Therefore, if you arrive at different times, you will need to coordinate your own transfer (which can be done through Bradley Merchant).

The closest supermarket stocking a wide range of goods (required for a family traveling) was 20 mins away, and the return taxi was Baht800. Therefore, I would recommend bringing staples, and/or purchasing vitals en route to the house if you are able.

The beach to the immediate right of the property (when facing the water) has a lot of rubbish on it and seems slightly dirtier for swimming. As a group, we preferred to go to the beach to the left of the house (when facing the water, over the hill and around the point). We set up near the local Yacht Club which worked well. There was also less pollution on this beach. Both beaches had little or no waves while we were there, so perfect for kids.

Thanks for the great feedback. We've had several guests mention that Khao Khad beach (West facing) can get quite dirty. I think this is seasonal/tidal with rubbish swept across the bay from Chalong. Ao Yon beach (East facing) is much preferred in that it's virtually pristine and more suitable for swimming. Ao Yon is 2-3 minutes walk from the villa.

“Relaxing time in a large home with spectacular views”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in The Glasshouse for 10 days to celebrate an important birthday. There were 2 families in our group and a total of 5 young children. Although the beach directly opposite the home is not so great for swimming. There is one within an easy walk which I think is probably one of the best in Phuket for young children. It is truly idyllic with soft sand, warm water and a tyre swing attached to a palm. You really couldn't ask for more.
The Glasshouse is a large home and it easily accommodates two families in comfort. There are many sitting areas inside and out where you can grab an afternoon snooze or catch up on your holiday reading. One thing I would say about the house is that it needs a little spruce up. There were a few minor issues with tiles in the pool and mosquito screens. But given our experience with Bradley and his team I have no doubt they will be fixed promptly.
I can hands down say we only cooked once in 10 days and also took advantage of a local laundry service. This meant that everyone had a real holiday and coming home has been a real adjustment.
Although the house is in a quieter area of Phuket there are still several great restaurants within a short stroll or taxi ride.
I have to say that Bradley and his team bent over backwards to ensure our stay was great. Nothing was too much trouble. They were a pleasure to deal with.

Delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the Glasshouse and thanks for the practical feedback. The mosquito frames are past their best and new ones are currently on order. The pool tiles is quick fix but we need to lower the pool level to fix the tiles so waiting for a gap between guests.

“Amazing villa in a beautiful part of Thailand”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We booked the villa to show off Thailand to my brother who had never been to Asia before. The villa and Phuket certainly delivered!

The villa is very spacious and was built and decorated to a very high standard. It's very spacious inside. The living area has a large double height ceiling with floor to ceiling glass (hence the name). The master bedroom has a separated dressing area and the bathroom has a large bath with a view out over the sea.

The villa has a great set of entertainment systems. There's a separate TV area with large flat screen and surround system. There's also a set of speakers with an AirPlay receiver (so bring an iPhone or laptop with iTunes).

There was a small amount of food in the villa for when we arrived, which was great to fill a whole before visiting the supermarket to stock up on provisions. There are also a couple who are employed to look after the villa who (given a day's notice) will buy food and cook a traditional Thai dinner. This was some of the best food we've had in Thailand, so would definitely recommend them!

There is an optional housekeeping service offered, which we took and was happy with. We were generally very happy with the team looking after the property.

Overall, we were very impressed with the property and would definitely recommend it.
