From the moment we arrived at the ocean view penthouse pool Kata Gardens we were in Paradise; and it was ours for a whole month! Our hosts Lillian and Graham were amazing. Lillian had stocked the fridge; Graham had installed a water cooler; all for our use.The apartment was beautiful; well stocked kitchen with every utensil you could imagine you would need, also a fridge/freezer microwave; the lounge has very comfortable furniture to relax on whilst watching very good films, news etc on a modern flat screen tv also excellent wifi; outside the veranda is cool and shady and has dining furniture and also a day bed to relax on; the bedroom has a really comfortable kingsize bed and beautiful soft feather pillows and lovely Egyptian cotton sheets, also a small library and a dvd player; the bathroom is enormous, extra large sunken bath and a walk in shower and loads of fluffy white towels.We spent most of our time on the roof terrace; the view; the infinity pool; the shady little sala; the barbeque...Ray did some great toasties for lunch everyday and cooked most nights on...Ray is an astronomer so each evening was spent looking up!!...with a local beer in hand... on the very comfortable settee. The house keeping came in three times a week and changed the bed linen and towels each time. Cannot fault the service at all. We were in contact by email to Lillian and Graham at anytime for any enquiries that we had; and were replied to almost instantly. The location of the property was perfect; we found that we could walk into Kata very easily; the beach is on the doorstep; and Lillian recommended some local bars which we visited for some lovely local excellent meals...very reasonably priced as well. I would think that Kata has something for everyone from massage to motorbiking. The local bus took us to Phuket Town for 35 baht; an hour's journey for 70p; amazing; also a very enjoyable experience in the cooling fresh air. We hired a small motorbike a few times and really got around this beautiful island; Graham recommended some places which are really worthwhile visiting; very scenic and we would not have found Sabai Corner without him...the view from there is to die for. Overall we cannot fault anything about this property;it's hosts Lillian and Graham really spoilt us for the whole month...five star plus guys!!

This one bedroom apartment with private rooftop has everything you need to have a fantastic vacation in Phuket. The views from the rooftop were outstanding and the warm welcome from friendly managers Mr Graham and Mrs Lillian made us feel like home. They were very helpful and generous with everything we needed.
We were lucky to be the first guests at this place so everything looks clean and new as we left it. The apartment complex "Kata Gardens" also was clean and quite with security guards available all the time. It is located on top of the hill between Kata Beach and Kata noi so, unless you have a car or a motorbike, be prepared to walk uphill for a few minutes. There is no room service for this apartment but they provided us with menus for different types of nearby restaurants that were able to deliver to your door. A friendly maid 'Wendy' came everyday to clean and wash our clothes. I would say you get everything in a five star hotel but with a private and personal service.
Thank you for making our stay so special and unforgettable.
