Our apartment overlooks Ao Yon Beach, near Cape Panwa, with uninterrupted open ocean views down the Malacca Straits. It is far enough away from the tourist haunts of Patong and Kata to avoid the throngs, but close enough to let you mingle when you feel the urge. Spend your days on the beach, in the infinity-edge pool, touring the nearby islands, or checking out the sights and culture of Phuket. Dine in the many upmarket or low cost restaurants nearby, or have an authentic Thai dinner cooked for you by your own maid. When you arrive, you can enjoy a bottle of wine and a cheese and fruit platter with our compliments, while you think about what to do first, or contemplate not doing anything at all.
The townhouse is in a small complex of four. The townhouse has upstairs and downstairs living areas, a fully equipped western kitchen and three bathrooms. Two of the three bedroom have king size beds and the third has twin single beds. There are balconies off the main bedroom and upstairs living area, and the downstairs living area opens on to a terrace overlooking the pool. The pool and entertaining area are shared by the four townhouses, but the townhouses are generally not all occupied at the same time.
A satellite television service is provided, along with a DVD player and a small DVD collection. The television has PC and HDMI connectivity. A second TV is provided upstairs for a bit of flexibility. Wi-Fi internet access is also provided, at no extra cost.
The kitchen has a full size fridge/freezer, microwave, oven, stovetop and filter coffee maker.. There is also a small portable gas BBQ. The bedrooms are air-conditioned, as is the downstairs kitchen/living area, but you may prefer to enjoy the breezes instead.
Housekeeping services are provided three times a week, and this can include washing and ironing of your clothes. More frequent housekeeping and Thai cooking may be able to be arranged at an additional cost.
There are a few restaurants within walking distance, and many more just a little further away and around Cape Panwa. The Phuket Aquarium is also at Cape Panwa. Phuket town is about 10km away, with the famed weekend markets a little closer than that. The Rawai, Kata and Patong areas are all within a 30 minute drive. A small number of local taxis operate around Ao Yon, but if you are comfortable driving in Phuket and want to get around a fair bit, you may find hiring a vehicle to be more convenient.
Concierge services are provided as a courtesy for arranging airport pick up and car hire with collection at the apartment (normal rates paid to service providers only). Other services available include arranging a car with driver, booking tours, and stocking the pantry (minimal charge associated with these options). If there is anything else that you need, just let us know. We’ll do our best to assist you.
