The house was exactly as described: spacious, tastefully furnished and decorated and well managed. The staff was most accommodating and always ready to help. The kitchen was very good. After two of our daughters managed to sit-down with the Thai Sous-Chef, he delivered very well on the delightful Thai dishes. The two ladies who supervised the dining room and the housekeeping were outstanding and appreciated by the whole family, particularly by the little ones. They made a huge difference. The house manager, Renaud, is a good man either present at the house or available all the time. He delivered on our many requests playing Santa Claus with good grace, arranging for Thai traditional music and dances, for fireworks, finding a guitar for my wife, driving us personally to golf, boat outings, shopping, etc.
