About Gordon

I am English, living with my family in Cambridge UK. For a time I lived in my villa in Portugal full time, and really enjoyed my time there. When my work brought me back to the UK, my kids did not want me to sell the villa, they wanted to be able to return for holidays, and so it is then that I now rent it part of the time. I must stress this was not set up as an investment, but my home, you will therefore find fittings and equipment of much better quality than is normal.

Gordon purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Gordon chose Phuket

I had to work in Asia several times each year, so I bought my place in Phuket (The Pearl of the Andaman Sea) Thailand. This location is to my mind the best in Asia, (and I know the region quite well).

Here we have great weather, fabulous mountainous scenery, and some of the finest beaches in the world.

Eating out is amazing, nearby beach restaurants are excellent, check out "Pla" on Surring beach, get a table right up to the sea edge, which the illuminate at night, and sit is fully upholstered armchairs, with the crashing of waves to listen to, and often as not lanterns flying up into the sky, or fireworks

Again I set it up as a home, not for rental, but now I prefer to let it out from time to time, as it is better that a property is regularly used. I have weekly maid service.

What makes this apartment unique

Manin benefits of Layan Gardens, is quiet location, but near to Beaches, Shops, Golf, Nightlife, everything you could want really.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: There are four pools, one is jacuzzi style. Main pool is deep, other pools are child friendly. Please ensure you are with children at the pool at all times to look after their safety. This is a very quiet location, so normally though the pool is shared you are mostly the only ones to use the pool. I have a good range of fins, masks, plus one stab jacket for snorkeling off the beach. There is good sea life to observe. Outside: We have magnificent tropical gardens, possibly the best on the Island, with our own chipping and putting green. We overlook a lake from an elevated position, and over to the trees and part views of the ocean. Just a short walk to Tao beach regarded as one of the four best in the world according to Lonely Planet guide.

Great stay, want to come back

  • 5 of 5

The location and apartment is great.

Apartment: Spacious, modern and clean with view to the forest, lake and partially to the sea.

Apartment is located in such a way that you can enjoy sunsets everyday facing right at you from the 50 sq.m balcony.

It's equipped with everything you can imagine for comfortable living including dishwasher, washing machine, oven, iron etc. etc..

Just 5 minutes of driving to one of the best beaches in Phuket - Bang Tao. Only 15 minutes from big Tesco.

Also it's very quiet - not many people are living in the Layan Gardens complex. Perfect for family stay.

The owner is also very helpful and willing to help with any issues that arise.

I highly recommend this apartment!

Map

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Phuket
Nearest Beach
3 Kilometres
Bang Tao - (one of the best in the world)
Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

You are able to enrol on Thai cooking courses at many places, also fishing trips, scuba, elephant trekking, sea canoe (See John Gray's Sea Canoe website - he makes movies for Discovery TV). Boat trip to the magnificent limestone mountains, known as "James Bond" Island tour famous in the movie for the tall mountains that are a geological wonder. Visit the Gibbon Sanctuary, and forest waterfalls.

Coast/Beach:

Nearest Beaches are Layan and Bang Tao, both 3 minutes by car or motorbike. You can walk, but about 20 minutes. The beaches are surrounded by land owned the the King, and therefore undeveloped (so far) I believe Lonely Planet said Bang Tao was 4th best beach in the world, these beaches are very quiet, with usually just a handful of people there. You can get lunch on the beaches, very cheap and good.

Travel:

About 5 miles along the coast, (wonderful scenery on route) there is Nai Thon beach, and the other direction is Surin Beach. Layan Gardens is in a quiet area, so you will need a car, of motor bike. Driving is on left side of road, and care must be taken with locals driving, standards are not good, and many young children ride motor bikes with 4 to a bike, the driver is often about 10 years old!

Distances:

Airport is 20 minutes by taxi. Pattong for noisy nightlife is 30 minutes drive along beautiful coast road. Phuket town, is Sino Portuguese and has many interesting buildings and some great restaurants. World famous Pang Nha Bay is a two hour drive, from there take a boat trip and eat on a floating restaurant. Check out the John Gray canoe adventure, which has won ecotourism awards. That recently discovered a new Coral Reef there.

Further Details:

Tesco has main supermarket on the Island, at Central. There is a mall at Central also which is 20 minutes drive. There are local supermarkets and shops at Tinaly Place, and Cheng Talay, both just minutes by car. At Tinlay there are popular bars for social drinking, and sports bars with live football etc.
