A picture paints a thousand words and the pictures for this villa are worthy of those thousand words.
I will try not to bore you with irrelevant waffle suffice it to say the villa is a homely well equipped property where anyone should find the type of holiday they are looking for. Whether you want peace and quiet or action the location is good, yes the beach and centre are 15 minutes away (350 baht taxi) but it adds to the experience.
The owners Martin and John, down to earth genuine people with a lot of character are just a phone call away if needed.
There were a couple of technical/maintenance issues whilst we were in residence but minor and were being rectified.
The private pool was excellent (cleaned three times whilst we were there), a great area for children and adults alike and very private.
Cooking/kitchen facilities okay but when the nearby local restaurants are so inexpensive and you are on holiday why bother cooking.
There was a good choice of films available on the entertainment system but uk dvd's will not de-code on the player, only a problem if you want to waste time in front of a tv screen.
The Club House with its large swimming pool, restaurant and gymnasium is well worth visiting and is only a 5 minute stroll through the complex.
All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend this villa as a base. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
We found our hosts Martin and John to be attentive and helpful in arranging our airport transport and answering any questions we had prior to our stay. Upon arrival at their villa they were both friendly, welcoming and great hosts making us feel right at home immediately.
On walking us through the property I was relieved to see that all the reviews were correct, the property was clean, comfortably furnished, well thought out with two beautiful outside areas both front and the back of the property to enjoy. Our children loved the saltwater pool, which is a good size to play in as a family, and so much kinder on little eyes than a chlorine pool. The surrounding area was decked out with loungers and umbrellas to relax by the pool.
One bonus for us was Tigger and Jitters the resident cats. When missing our pets from home they were nice company and my son enjoyed taking responsibility for feeding them and making sure they had plenty of strokes each day. They were a great addition to our stay.
We would wholeheartedly recommend this property to others who are looking for a relaxing, comfortable stay and hope to stay ourselves again in the future.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here at the villa, the house itself is really lovely and comfortable, the pool outstanding and the location perfect. It is a little out of Hua Hin itself, but we loved that. Martin and John are an absolute delight, so helpful and friendly. We had to cut our trip short, but we would love to go back and stay again sometime. Oh we must mention the adorable cats, Tigger and Jitters, they are really great holiday companions, X
If you are looking to stay in the Hua Hin Area - stop your search & book this villa now. Spacious, spotlessly clean, luxurious, fully equipped and a beautiful large swimming pool.
We enjoyed great communication with the owners (John & Martin) in the run up to our holiday & they kindly organised our transfer from the airport to the villa. On arrival the owners met us & gave us a tour of the property. Both were extremely friendly & knowledgeable on the area. We hired a car but if that isn't your scene a friendly local taxi driver called Willie is on hand for tours & trips into town.
The villa is situated approx. 10-15 minutes from Hua Hin. There are quite a number of nice local restaurants nearby together with a little 7/11 supermarket. (Find the large supermarkets in Hua Hin - Tesco Lotus is superb).
Hua Hin is small enough to get to grips with very quickly - lots of nice restaurants, buzzing day & night markets, bars & shops. The Hilton Sky Bar for cocktails & Dim Sum is a must! Interestingly, people are not always hassling you like in Bangkok, so it is very relaxed.
A short drive west (away from the coast) and you are into the mountains - beautiful scenery, waterfalls, elephants etc.
Would I recommend this villa? No - I would insist that you book it! We had a fantastic time there.
I would highly recommend this villa, it has all the comforts of a home from home. The owners live nearby and were always there to answer any questions or help. Would certainly book again
