Plotting at the office. 
 Day-dreaming on your commute. 
 You’ve been preparing for your escape all year long. Why not make it the Greatest Escape possible? 

 Make a break for our luxurious 370 sqm pool villa! Nestled high above world-famous Kantiang Bay, our tropical hideaway is well within your grasp. You'll feel a million miles away as soon as you arrive, and the distance only gets greater as the days pass…. Perhaps you've heard of the award-winning five-star resort, just up the road from our hidden sanctuary? The plans for our Great Escape were concocted by the same architect who designed their highly sought after villas. Of course we were designing a getaway for the entire family, so while our home is of the same style and quality as the Pimalai villas, it is much larger in size ...Plotting at the office.

 You’ve been preparing for your escape all year long. Why not make it the Greatest Escape possible? 

 Make a break for our luxurious 370 sqm pool villa! Nestled high above world-famous Kantiang Bay, our tropical hideaway is well within your grasp. You'll feel a million miles away as soon as you arrive, and the distance only gets greater as the days pass…. Perhaps you've heard of the award-winning five-star resort, just up the road from our hidden sanctuary? The plans for our Great Escape were concocted by the same architect who designed their highly sought after villas. Of course we were designing a getaway for the entire family, so while our home is of the same style and quality as the Pimalai villas, it is much larger in size (and much cheaper in price!) 

Come find refuge where the jungle meets the sea and tropical beauty abounds. Float lazily in the private 13 meter infinity pool perched overlooking the white sands and azure sea. Unwind gazing down upon the fabled tropical paradise islands that dot the horizon; Ko Rok, an untouched national treasure. Ko Haa, a scuba-diving mecca. Ko Phi Phi, a tourist destination known the world around. All in your view and each an easy day trip away.
 The villa is set amongst cashew trees and jungle canopy, just a five minute walk to the village of vibrant Kantiang Bay. Quaint artistic shops, quality restaurants, lively bars, relaxing massage spas, tour agents, the island’s most renowned Dive school and even a 24-hour convenience store are right there for your benefit. Not to mention the beautiful sandy white beach! The house has 4 air-conditioned, ocean facing suites. Each with it’s own attached bathroom and private balcony. 

The massive family room is in an open plan design, with high ceilings offering plenty of space and comfort during your stay. There is fast WIFI, TV/DVD with video collection, board games, a Wii entertainment system, a table tennis table, a collection of English language books and more. 

 The full kitchen has granite work tops and is equipped for every need with large fridge/freezer, microwave, oven/grill and four burners, toaster, kettle, blender and dishwasher. There is even a clothes washer for your personal laundry.

 The dining area can accommodate 8 people indoors or 10 people outside under the shade of our elevated ‘hammock nest’. (The perfect place for an afternoon nap or to keep a lookout for the majestic Sea Eagle who makes his own nest nearby.) 

 Sun lovers have their own area as well, with 4 loungers on a patio space by the pool that gets sun all day and is the perfect place to take in spectacular sunsets every night!

 Weekly cleaning and thrice weekly pool maintenance is included.

 All this and more is accessible via private drive and covered parking area. The villa is at the top of the road and has no neighbuors overlooking any of the property to ensure the utmost privacy and total relaxation. Why not hatch the ultimate getaway plan and book your Great Escape today?

 NOTE: We only make available the number of bedrooms that corresponds with the number of guests. E.G. One bedroom (Master) for 2 guests. Two bedrooms for 3 to 4 guests. Three bedrooms for 5 to 6 guests. All four bedrooms for 7 to 8 guests.More
