We spent 17 nights at Eric's 3 bedroom villa and loved every minute of it!
First and foremost, Eric is the most engaging and available VRBO hosts we have had. He greeted us upon our arrival and made periodic visits to ensure everything was running smooth. He also arranged an airport transfer for us and got us a deal on a rental car.
The villa is modern with all of the comforts you could need for an extended stay (wifi, satellite tv, A/C, etc...). The pool was cleaned twice during our visit which we appreciated because we used it every day. It also has a separate washing machine room, covered carport and front gate.
The location was perfect for us as I was training on "Gym Street" which is a 5 minute drive away. In addition, the villa is no more than 20 minutes away from the most popular beaches and about 30 minutes away from Cape Panwa. Within walking distance is Froggy's bar which had surprisingly great Thai and Western food and a great atmosphere. The Tesco market is a 5 minute walk and has everything you could possible need (food, pharmacy, restaurants and small vendors).
Overall, it was everything as advertised. I cannot stress enough the value we found in renting Eric's villa. For the fraction of the price of a 5 star resort we had our own private villa with all of the amenities one could ask for. We highly recommend Eric and his villas if you plan on traveling to Chalong.
