HEAVEN IN PHUKET

Karon beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are ready to visit amazing Phuket, our home may be just right for you!

Villa Sawan (“Heaven” in Thai) is just one long block from spectacular Karon Beach. An intimate, private home, it is perfect for those who want romantic privacy, but also desire easy access to the beach, dining, shopping and night-life. Our two bedroom, three bath home is a true tropical delight.

A large living and dining area open up to a lovely deck and private pool. Across the u-shaped deck in a separate building, are two spacious bedrooms, each with an individual entrance, king beds and private bathrooms. Both bedrooms are very quite and have full-length drapes for complete privacy.

All rooms in the villa have floor-to-ceiling glass walls facing the deck and pool that open completely, creating an open-air atmosphere. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub with sliding full size windows that open on to the pool. The deck and pool area have a separate full bath with a breathtaking granite shower.

The furnishings are traditional Thai using native materials from throughout the country. The villa is located at the base of a mountainous jungle area. It provides a lush, secluded environment, but is a mere two minute walk to any vacation amenity you may crave.

This part of Karon Beach is older and still retains many charming, Thai-owned establishments. Fabulous restaraunts, fun open-air bars, traditional Thai massage, salons, food carts and markets are all at the bottom of our Soi. If you want an evening of racous, over-the-top nightlife, Patong Beach is a quick ten minute tuk tuk ride over the hill.

We are four friends who love Thailand and realized our longtime dream when we purchased Villa Sawan. Traveling to Phuket together since 2000, we have shared amazing experiences and wonderful times on this island, in particular, this small part of Karon Beach. Our Thai family, the Soungmoungs, have made it possible to have a home here, and to share it with you. We know you will love Thailand and the wonderful Thai people and culture as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Karon Beach is arguably the most beautiful beach in the world. We are one block from this spectacular beach where the amazing Andaman Ocean is waiting to soothe ones spirit. We made great friends in this charming, older area of Phuket, and fell in love with it. We enjoy the small Thai-owned businesses here, rather than the large-scale newer development further up the coast. Karon allows one to experience a little bit of Thai culture, and true Thai hospitality. Although our home is new, it blends in to the jungle and community beautifully, without compromising the original charm of our little soi.

Karon Beach is the perfect blend of solitude and action. The house is amazingly private and quite. You feel as if you are a thousand miles away while inside this sanctuary of luxury. Down the soi to the main street you have dining, shopping and massage at your fingertips. Fun horseshoue bars, music, pool and of course, karaoke, are all on the block. At the end of the block is the amazing beach. All these things and more are a short walk from our beautiful home. Not the overcrowded hustle and bustle of Patong Beach, nor the over-quite and overly retiring atmosphere of an all-inclusive resort. You are truly living in Phuket at Villa Sawan.

Excellent Accomodations Near Karon Beach

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
My wife and I spent a fantastic week at this residence for our honeymoon over the new year, and it was hard for us to leave it behind. While there were only two of us, the villa could sleep 4 very comfortably, and could easily accommodate 6 if you're looking to divvy up the price. Either 2 or 6 people, the villa is a bargain considering that any resort or chain hotel in the area would probably have a comparable rate, but without the space or amenities that come with the villa.

The villa was exactly as described in the listing; an extremely lovely residence that's about 300m to the beach. In fact, the photos for the listing were accurate; however, the villa is so much more impressive in person. You will be amazed once you enter. While it's in a gated development, it's very close to all the action in Karon Beach, including several local restaurants and taxis and tuk-tuks that will take you to other areas of Phuket.

We booked the villa in July, and the owner was responsive throughout the entire process. Getting in and out of the property was a breeze as well. Also, the wifi worked well the entire time, with no problems. It felt like home away from home for the entire week. We hope to book this property in a future trip to Phuket, and we would certainly recommend it to friends.

Amazing experience

Villa Sawan and the surrounding area of Southern Karon Beach is the perfect base for a fabulous holiday experience. The villa itself is all that the owners claim it to be and more- so well maintained and appointed. Even better than the photos!
The ladies from Robin House (a great restaurant just down the rd) who manage the villa locally are fabulous and were especially gorgeous to our 5 and 7 year olds, home delivering dinner on their mopeds most nights. They were so gracious and helpful.
The owners were fabulous to deal with and provided us with lots of local knowledge. The driver they organised to pick us up from the airport, Dang, was just delightful and reasonably priced. We made use of his services on a few others days during our trip to take outings too.
All in all, a fabulous location for a holiday which is made all the better by having such a fabulous villa to return to after each day of exploring.

The Villa exceeded our expectations and was represented very accurately by the owners. The owners were also extremely helpful in making our Phuket experience the best it could be. We definitely would recommend this Villa to a friend! We spent 40 days in the Villa and found it to be a great location on the island for all of our adventures. There's plenty to do within walking distance. It was wonderful!!!

My girlfriends & I stayed for a few weeks last year while we had major cosmetic procedures.
We definitely made the right choice with Villa Sawan. The owners were easy to communicate with & helpful with any planning queeries. The Villa was spacious & comfortable. The furnishings & surrounds were aesthetically pleasing & we settled in with ease. The beautiful ladies at the Robin House restaurant looked after us like family. Many delicious meals were delivered on moped, with big smiles & a little surprise at our appearance. The location is convenient but away from the hustle of Patong. Would absolutely return to Karon Beach & Villa Sawan. (Heaven in Phuket)
