The perfect getaway
We found this fantastic villa as if it was meant to be as we searched for a week to find a place to stay in Phuket for our much needed vacation.
Everything in this villa was perfect...just like the pictures. From the start, the owners were very responsive to our inquiries - and we had plenty! It's further away from the touristy part of Phuket which was a plus for our group as we wanted to rest and relax for our 5 days on the island. We hung out in the sala when we're not in the pool.
Our rooms were comfortable, and the master bathroom was gorgeous. The decors were fantastic, and there were even fresh orchids everywhere to welcome us to the villa. The A/C will keep you cool in the summer heat. We put the kitchen to good use as we cooked 4 out of 5 nights at the villa (you can buy ingredients from a local grocery store which is not too far away).
We have to agree with most everyone here that Saa, the housekeeper extraordinaire, is the person who elevate this villa from great to exceptional. She was very attentive, caring, and thoughtful. We found that she anticipated our needs without us having to ask for it. Saa kept the villa immaculate while tending to other minute details - such as booking FantaSea dinner and show (we invited her to go with us a way of saying thank you and she LOVED it), arranging in-house massages, shopping for our groceries, and doing our laundry! One person in our group was sick during the visit, and being the caring person that she was, Saa got him cough medication so that he would feel better. Saa even made us a great lunch on our check-out day to say good bye...and boy, she can definitely cook!
If you choose to stay at this villa, Saa will make sure you enjoy your stay. When I talked to her, Saa said that in her opinion, "To go on vacation, guests have to save up money, timings have to be right, and their health must be in good shape. It could take a long time for all these to come together - months, maybe years. I must treat them well because I'm the final component in this dream vacation. If I treat them well, they will remember it forever. If I don't, then they will also remember it forever. Who am i to destroy someone else's vacation?"
What a great outlook, and what a great person. If you choose to go to this villa (and I don't see why you won't), please treat Saa very well. She's a gem.
We'll definitely be coming back...hopefully very, very soon.
