We just completed a 17 night stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. The condo is located in a quiet and peaceful section of Bangtao beach, but is close enough for short walks to shopping, the best swimming areas, restaurants and bars. The front desk manager, Thai, is very helpful, and has a great personality. She and the driver, Mr. Fin, make a great team and can arrange anything that you need. Please treat them respectfully and you will be repaid many times with kindness.
Although the beach immediately in front is usable only during low tide, it is only a short walk down the road for full access. We used the pool extensively, and found it more than satisfactory.
While my wife and I anchored the condo for the entire stay, our youngest son and daughter-in-law used the second bedroom for a week, followed by my brother and sister-in-law. All of them raved about the accommodations and enjoyed their visits.
My wife did prepare all of our breakfasts, and a few other meals and found the kitchen and cooking instruments met all of her needs. We recommend the Villa Mart near Boat Avenue for grocery shopping. However, there are numerous high quality, low cost restaurants (Riverside, Nok Seafood, The Bistro, Beachside, etc), and we chose to eat out more often than we had planned.
To summarize, the condo and setting are nearly perfect for a very enjoyable holiday on Phuket.
