My husband and I were married in Phuket on Nai Yang beach in August 1997 and fell head over heels in love, not with only each other but with Phuket too. We have a son and daughter who also love Phuket. Our plan is to retire to Bann Jai Dee as soon as possible. Its home from home
Jackie Lister purchased this villa in 2002
We had the Villa built, the land was simply like a jungle but we loved the privacy and views. Its so quiet and relaxing. We love nothing more than swimming and enjoying our beautiful garden. Its close to Nai Yang and Nai Thon beaches, both of which we enjoy. Nai Yang has many bars and restaurants. We have made such great friends there over the years and can't imagine being anywhere else. I feel we are very lucky to have found our dream. The property is made to feel home from home, we try and make sure everything is installed to make your stay there a relaxing and homely one.
The setting of our home is wonderful, you see so many beautiful birds and butterflies in our garden. Its totally tranquil and relaxing. We have a lovely garden and great pool. We enjoy sitting on the Sala enjoying breakfast or an evening meal.
I am always anxious when arriving at a holiday rental, so I have to say it was wonderful to arrive at this lovely house. Jackie and Ying met us at the airport and helped us in renting a car. You really do need a car as there were not many places too near the villa. The gardens are delightful and oh that pool, it was so wonderful. The Sal was great to escape the sun, it was about 34 deg every day. The beds were super comfy with lovely bed linen.
We really liked Surin and Ny Yang beaches. However Bang Tao beach is wonderful but a little further away.
We did not seem to be aware that electricity was charged at the end of the holiday so just be careful and maybe ask jackie or Digger for a bit of advice.
Last but not least Jackie and Digger are a great couple and very helpful. Ying is helpful and super friendly, a great asset.
I also had the opportunity of seeing Villa C
Charlotte and although only suitable for two it was an outstanding little place.
After visiting this Villa the for the first time in 2013 then 2014 my family and another family return every year. Jackie the owner upgrades this property every year as it is her pride and joy and when we returned this year 2015 we were amazed to see the transformation into what a luxury property it is at present. Brand new renovated swimming pool, full redecoration, brand new top of the range sold hardwood and teak furniture, Sat TV throughout the property, High Speed fibre optic wifi covering the entire 1600 sqm grounds , which is ideal to conduct my business whilst I am away, absolutely stunning garden with all the local, Banyan , Banana, and frit local species of fauna providing shade wherever you may need it, new matresses , better than some top hotels, full separate are conditioned office brand new covered patio with a 8 person solid wood table, stainless BBQ and burner enough space to cook for 20 people, electric gates, CCTV, and Jackie informs me that in 2016 there will be a new office addition extension to the house, new larger kitchen with all new appliances, and a separate 45sqm bungalow on adjoining grounds with its own driveway and private joined by a lockable gate that she may rent on a case by case basis for the clients with larger families that want to be together, but need that extra space. I have already placed my deposit for 2016. Have a prosperous and busy year Jackie with all your hard work Jackie, Thanks from our family for making our stay so special every year and cant wait to see you in late 2016. 12 out of 10 ! 7 stars .
We were a family of 7 including 2 grandchildren, 3 and 5, from the UK and Australia. The grandparents had lived in Phuket for the last 6 winters( dry season) so knew the island well and wanted a villa with pool near Nai Yang beach which was our favorite as being much less crowded than the beaches further south yet is a beautiful white sand beach fringed by tall tress to provide shade when wanted and having lots of good quality restaurants and attractions nearby.
Baan Jai Dee is all it was described to be with lovely large garden and a wonderful recently refurbished pool. The grandkids played in the pool for hours every day ,and the 5 year old who couldn't swim when he arrived was swimming lengths and diving to the bottom of the 2.5m deep end by the end of the holiday. We were able to drag them away for some day trips to the Island Safari, for elephant trecking, the Gibbon Sanctuary, the Splash Jungle water park , which are all on the north side of the island and so closer to Nai Yang and also Fantasea and a 2 day trip on a boat to Phang Nga Bay including overnight to see the caves and hongs . Most evenings we spent at the restaurants on the beach at Nai Yang where the food is excellent and inexpensive and the adults were able to dine in a relaxed atmosphere while watching the kids playing in the sand with toys provided by the restaurants.
Ying came in daily to clean, had excellent English ,and was really helpful eg sorting out some problems with a rental car. Ying and Aah cooked a wonderful meal for us for a dinner party of 15 when we invited some friends living on the island. She included all our favorite dishes like soft shell crab, bbq fish in tamarind etc and all our guests were very complementary.
Thank you very much Jackie and Digger for making us feel so welcome and it was a great surprise to arrive for our Christmas holiday to find the villa decorated with Christmas decorations and an enormous Christmas tree. This was voted by all of us as the best holiday ever.
We stayed at Ban Jai Dee for 10 days in August (low season and wet). Although we encountered a bit of rain Ban Jai Dee was perfect. Having the pool there with 4 children was a godsend! After a long flight with three children it was fantastic being so close to the airport. When we arrived Apple and David were there to greet us and see if we needed anything. They were great throughout our stay. Ying and Ing were fantastic with helping with the children and cooking authentic thai meals. The house was always clean and there was plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 children. We received great advice and recommendations for outings and I would highly recommend Ban Jai Dee to friends and family. Thank you to Jackie also for quick and informative replies to queries.
The extended family and I stayed at Bann Jai Dee for two weeks in July/August. The house was nice and clean and perfect for kids, with a lovely pool and lots of space. The house keeper/maids did a fantastic job making us feel at home.
Being in Thailand in the monsoon season, turned out great. It meant that there were hardly any tourists around and we only had rain one day for a couple of hours .
We rented a car to get around, as the house was a fair distance from shops and beaches, but this just added to the feel of being far far away from the busy everyday life.
Also being up north of the island, meant being away from the more busy areas such as Patong and Phuket Town. We really enjoyed the more down marked restaurants at Nai Yang beach, where you could go after a late afternoon swim in the ocean, and still have your feet in the sand whilst enjoying a beautiful seafood dinner.
We went on a few trip during our stay, such as James Bond Island, the Big Buddha and The Water Splash Park, which I would recommend, but maybe be a bit weary with trips advertising elephant rides or other human interactions with wild animals, as animal welfare does not seem to have top priority some places.
The owner Jackie was most helpful. She answered questions quickly and offered much helpful advice. It was just like borrowing a house from a friend.
I would most definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a place to take some time out from the busy schedule of everyday life.
Thank you for a beautiful Holiday, Jackie:-)
We had an excellent holiday here over Easter 2012.
It’s always a pleasure to step off the plane and be greeted by a driver for transfer to the house, and this had been organized by Joy, for us. On arrival at the house we were all astounded by the gorgeous gardens, and the house was all that was described on the website and more. The house is kept spotless and Joy came in to clean and tidy daily. The towels were changed daily and even the bed linen seemed to be changed every few days.
The garden has been thoughtfully planted and offers plenty of shade and sunshine. There were numerous butterflies and birds as well as cicadas and frogs etc to occupy our attention, and the frangipani gives off a beautiful scent.
Nai Yang and Nai Thon are really lovely, and unlike the southern coast of Phuket are much less busy and commercialized. There was plenty to do however and I would highly recommend the massage under the sala next to Erica and Khaow’s bar at Nai Yang. It only cost the equivalent of £6.00 for a full body massages, and we all enjoyed being pampered several times. Food and drinks in the beach bars are also inexpensive and were able to get a generous meal for 4 plus drinks for under 1000 BHT (less than £20.00). Also Check out the Cottage Garden, a higher end restaurant serving delicious Thai and European food.
I would certainly recommend a hire car, and again this was organized for us, by Joy. It was very inexpensive but enabled us to get around with ease. We all enjoyed many activities such as elephant trekking at Baeng Phae, and a visit to the waterfall and gibbon centre there. The ATVs on the Thalang Road were also huge fun. There are many temples around, including one at the turn to the Nai Yang beach which was stunning.
For self catering there are plenty of small shops within five minutes, and a drive of about 10 minutes will take you to a very large Tesco and shopping complex. The market at Nai Yang was also a fabulous place to buy all sorts of local foods and clothing.
Finally I would like to say how helpful Jackie was while I was booking the holiday, answering all my queries and helping us plan. She even moved their own stay at the house to accommodate our dates. At the end of our visit when we experienced a massive delay in flights Jackie and Digger also invited us to stay an extra night with them, and we had a lovely evening with them.
Our two teenage girls enjoyed the house as much as we did and we highly recommend it to all
Bann Jai Dee is situated towards the northern end of the island of Phuket which is commonly known as the Pearl of the Andaman and lies on the Andaman coast. The northern end of Phuket is less densely populated than the south and is consequently far more serene and idyllic.
For those of you interested or even hooked on Golf what better place is there to be, Phuket has some of the best golf courses, one could wish to play on and with so many of them in easy reach of our villa, you could not want for more.
Other Activities: Elephant trekking
