This is an extremely large, wonderfully attractive and fantastically comfortable 4 bed/bath home in a high end, boutique gated community in a lovely part of Pattaya. The majority of the house is on the ground floor, with a huge living/dining room and three large, double bedrooms, each of which has spacious built-in wardrobes and big, en-suite bathrooms. Upstairs on the first floor is the fourth guest bedroom, which can be reached either by a lovely spiral staircase, from the dining area, or via an outdoor staircase to the terrace outside the bedroom, to which there are two sets of double doors.
The living/dining room has a very comfortable, leather three piece suite with large flat screen TV (all the TV's offer cable TV, with a good selection of foreign language channels including English, Russian, French, etc), a dining table for up to 8 people (although currently set for 6 - there are extra chairs and place settings in the villa).
There is a large, fully equipped, open plan European style kitchen, with oven, hobs, extractor fan, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster, rice cooker, toasted sandwich maker and dishwasher. In the utility room/maid's quarters, there is a front loading automatic washing machine and an electric dryer. The living/dining area also has a desk and chair for working and/or internet browsing.
There are effectively two master bedrooms, one downstairs and the upstairs bedroom, both of which have large flat screen TV's, walk-in wardrobe areas and big bathrooms with spacious, oval shaped baths and showering facilities. The other two bedrooms are also sizeable double, en-suite bedrooms.
The property, while already within a gated community, and next door to the 24 hour security post, is walled and gated, with an electric gate and a smaller side gate. Inside the house, there is a security alarm. There is a large car port, water feature and, in the most private part of the garden, a large swimming pool, with sunbeds. There is also an outdoor kitchen/bar to the side of the pool area.
There is free high speed wifi internet and cable TV on all TV's. Pool, bath and hand towels are provided for guests.
We meet our guests at the villa upon arrival to show them around, check them in and provide them with the keys. Thereafter, we are available by telephone from 8 am to 9 pm (and normally somewhat later) and can help with advice on where to go, what to do and to deal with any problems or issues that may arise. We also come to check guests out and collect the keys.
The setting for the property is a beautiful, boutique gated community in a very nice, quiet residential area, a short distance from the main Soi Siam Country Club. Close by there is a large 7-11, a small Tesco Lotus and a Mini Big C supermarket. Pattaya generally has a number of large, Western style supermarkets/hypermarkets and lots of shops selling foreign food from around the World. In the immediate vicinity of the villa there are also Thai massage shops, lots of restaurants/bars offering a wide variety of food, including Thai, English, French, Italian, Japanese and Indian, convenience stores, opticians, beauty salons, etc. There is a lovely bakery offering an excellent selection of cooked breakfasts just a short walk down the road.
A few kilometres up Soi Siam Country Club are the Siam Country Club golf courses, which now consist of the 18 hole Old course, the 27 hole Plantation course and the new 18 hole Waterside course. Siam Country Club offers some of the best golf anywhere in Asia and hosts the Honda LPGA championship each year. Also easily reached from the villa are numerous other championship standard golf courses, including Laem Chabang, Burapha, Phoenix, etc, etc. In total there are over 20 high end golf courses, many with 27 or 36 holes within easy reach.
Other tourist attractions close by include the Crocodile Farm, the Splashdown water park (based on the Wipeout TV show), the Bira motor racing circuit, the Elephant Village, the Snake Show, Pattaya, Jomtien and Najomtien beaches, Cartoon Network water park, Nong Nooch Gardens and cultural show, Alangkarn show, the Tiger Zoo, Horseshoe Point, zip line tours/courses (including Flight of the Gibbon and Treetops Asia), the Floating Market, go-karting, ATV driving, dirt biking tours, Silverlake vineyards, Sheep Farm, Chinese Temple (where Terracotta Warriors are on permanent display), etc, etc. There are countless, great fun things to do in and around Pattaya.

Tim was a very friendly host who was always ready and eager to help. His replies came in really fast even before I booked the villa, and he was more than happy to reply my questions. He even helped my friends and I to book a taxi to fetch us from the airport to the villa.
As for the Villa itself, this place is amazing! It's really nice and cozy yet spacious, perfect for a group of 6-8 people. Comes with your own private pool!
Only downside is that it's a little hard to get a taxi in that area, but you can ask Tim to refer you to the taxi driver. A trip to or from that area should cost around 300-400 baht one way. Otherwise it's a great place to get away from the bustling city life.
There is nice street food just down the road, a 5-10min walk away from the villa as well as a massage shop and a 7-11 and a tesco lotus. So you can get essentials such as bottled water, some food or beer just down the road.
Had a really great trip and I would definitely love to stay here again! [ But travelmob service fee is a tad expensive :( ]
Tim was an outstanding host. Hospitable, helpful and friendly he took care of all of our needs making himself available around the clock. The villa was very spacious and in fact a lot nicer than in the pictures. All in all we were very pleased and enjoyed our stay.
