Mornings awaken by echoes of the sea. Warm sun-rays inch in from the balcony. Masts of occasional yachts sway in the wind, under the blue sky, amidst the rolling crests of small waves. This property is located right on the sheltered beachfront of Khao- Khard Beach on the west coast of the exclusive, yet tranquil, Cape Panwa, overlooking the spectacular Andaman Sea and Chalong Bay with their surrounding islands. This is as close as you can come to a private beach.

It´s location is superb! Guests can visit jammed tourist locations if they wish but are not subject to it.
For the 2:nd year we spent the terrible Swedish winter at Waterside Condo 2B.
We just love it. As soon as you enter the Waterside premises you feel at home. The Waterside is located in a very calm area about 15 min from rushy Phuket town and away from the crowded tourist areas like Kata, Karon and (god forbid) Patong on the west coast. You can easily reach those places if you wish but you are not subject to them. That is the nice thing about it, You stay in a modern, clean, calm and beautiful environment, yet with easy access to the tourist areas.
So you get both Thailand and a clean modern home where you can relax.
The apartment itself is a VERY spacious 2 stories apartment with 3 fantastic bedrooms, a large living room, open fully equipped kitchen, and "The Office" where you can comfortably work with your computers. The apartment is equipped with very high speed hassle free WiFi Internet.
The apartment is tastefully furnished and you have everything you need.
If you want to be 100% lazy you can even have the food prepared in the apartment by Thai people.
All rooms have their own bathroom and air condition.
Outside the bedrooms and the living room there is a large balcony with a spectacular sea view, also enjoyable from every room. The evening sunsets you must see to believe!
Down the external stairs you are at the 40 meter swimming pool, with crystal clear water. You have to be able to walk the stairs.
10 meters from the pool you have the beach and the sea, but you have to follow the tides if you want to swim in the sea. On the beach you have a couple of Thai restaurants and hotel restaurants nearby. The beach feels wonderfully private and there are no sales people who bother you.
Massages are offered in many places in the area.
The Waterside has become our home away, we love to spend the cold Swedish winter time here. We can whole heartedly recommend it.
Khao Khard Beach - the Waterside Condo Beach!
Away from massive tourism, yet easy access to it.
This south-westerly facing beach - named after a nearby village - has managed to remain exactly the same as it has been for years in spite of intensive urbanization in the direct area. It's still tranquil and a heaven for people who like peace and quiet. Khao Khard lies eight kilometres south of Phuket Town on the west coast of the Cape Panwa peninsula.
From the beachfront, the calm waters of Chalong Bay come alive with local fishing boats, island ferries and private yachts. Looming over the horizon is Lone Island, with its verdant forest cover that has sheltered local fishermen's communities and rubber plantations for decades. The breathtaking view from the unit and the beach is spectacular and includes the Andaman Sea south.
On walking distance south there are further marine activities with sailing school and boat charter and several uncrowded smooth beaches along calm waters.
Across Chalong Bay about 10 km from the house there is a centre of boating activities, Chalong Pier's 720-metre long jetty is a major gateway to southern Thailand's world-famous island destinations and also a safe harbour for mooring activities.
Apart from the Waterside Condominium there are luxury villas and three luxury hotels along almost the entire beach but dotted in between are fishermen's huts and at the far north end of the beach there is a mangrove swamp.
You can rent a long tail boat to visit Koh Lone just a few minutes ride across the bay. During high season a small wooden shack sells few beach accessories.
The Beach Bar does great Thai food and drinks and, apart from walking into one of the three hotels on the beach (one more under construction) and using their splendid spas, restaurants, cafés etc, there are a few other small restaurants on the actual beach.
If you take the road back up the hill towards Phuket Town for a few hundred metres you will come to 'Best Food Good View' which is a wooden rustic Thai restaurant with great views out over Chalong Bay. And then there is of course the highly exclusive and enjoyable southern part of the Cape Phanwa peninsula only minutes away by car.
“Peppered with numerous limestone islands, sea caves and isolated beaches, the expansive seascapes to the east of Phuket boast a sublime backdrop for one-day boat excursions.
Simple kayaks can be rented at the neighbouring beach hotels.?
On walking distance southwards there are private boats for rent short and long term, small boats up to Catamaran charters with or without crew. From Cape Panwa, just 10 minutes away there are several Thai boats with drivers for rent to visit local islands.
From Phuket City you will find excellent boating destinations to islands like Phi-Phi island. From Chalong Pier, centre of the islands yachting and diving businesses, on the opposite side of Chalong Bay, a boat ride towards the north-east reveals dramatic islandscapes of Phang Nga Bay, famous for its emerald green waters, towering limestone cliffs and rocky pinnacles carpeted in lush-green outcrop, including the world-famous James Bond Island. A 45-minute boat ride to the east of Phuket, the crystalline waters open out to reveal an expansive horizon, sculpted into dramatic formations and picturesque archipelagos of Phi Phi, whereas to the south, the expansive beachfronts of Racha Islands are ideal for an afternoon picnic.
GOLF - http://www.phuketgolfcourse.com
There are eight courses on Phuket island of which three within 30 minutes drive from the Waterside property. Below are descriptions of those three and you will find more information by clicking the links.
Phuket Country Club is the first champion standard golf course with 18 holes in Phuket island. It can be reached within 20 minutes from the Waterside property. They offer two courses. The very popular 18 hole “Old Course” and the newer, more challenging 9 hole “Country Club Course”. Both courses were designed by the famous Thai course designer, Dr Sukitti Klangvishai. The Club features the full range of facilities one would expect of a world-class golf course.
There is a further country club course which is a challenging 3,575 yard, par 37, 9 hole layout for low handicap golfers. The picturesque beauty of the scenery and layout somewhat softens the difficulty of the course which is not easy as wayward shots are penalized either by the water hazards or OB’s. Probably more than any course in Phuket, the Country Club Course is a real test of golfing skills.
Loch Palm Golf Club offers 18 holes which are well assigned around a Lake and players enjoy challenging and exciting golf with a great view. The course is located between Kathu Village and the Kathu Waterfall. From the Waterside property the course can be reached within 30 minutes.
