About the property

Spacious 6 Bedroom Villa in quiet, upscale and convenient location

Two of the finest rental villas situated in one of the most desirable areas making it the ideal location for families and couples to enjoy a great holiday experience in the tropical island paradise of Phuket. The villas are situated close to the beautiful beach of Nai Harn at the South West tip of the island.

Located in a peaceful and upscale area on a quiet, traffic-free cul-de-sac you will enjoy local amenities, including a full range of restaurants, family friendly bars, shops and banks, all a short walk from your villa.

Both villas provide quality and spacious accommodation; they were built and equipped to an uncompromising standard. Villa One our 6 bedroom villa was recently extensively refurbished. We have an ongoing maintenance and upgrade program that ensures the properties are kept looking like new. They are managed by the owner and maintained and serviced on a daily basis by our full time staff.

The Villas are located on adjacent plots, but are completely private and separate making them ideal for larger groups to rent both properties at the same time. The Villa is an ideal location for weddings and large gatherings. We can accomodate up to 50 seated by the pool and can sleep up to 27 adults when the second villa is booked as well. We can also assist or advise in making all the arrangements needed.

They are set in their own large private gardens with large swimming pools.

Villa One provides spacious accommodation with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and can comfortably sleep 16 adults. Villa Two provides similar levels of accommodation and has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and can sleep up to 12 adults. (Please see details of Villa Two by entering 450591 in the search box).

We provide a full range of services for our guests. Basic services such as airport transfers, daily housekeeping, gardening, towels and linen, unlimited high speed Internet access and HD satellite TV are all included in the rental price. In addition we provide a full range of supplementary services such as catering, transport and concierge assistance to enhance your holiday experience.

Operating since 2007 we offer our guests quality accommodation at realistic prices, great service and peace of mind in dealing with a well-established and reputable business. We can accept Credit Card payments for your convenience and security.


Booking our villa means your holiday starts the moment you leave the airport where our English-speaking driver will meet you. Your shopping list for food and drink will have been completed. The villa is pristine with everything ready for your arrival. We meet all our guests at the villa with a welcome drink and make sure they can relax after what is normally a long journey. All you need to do is take a dip in the pool or just enjoy the balmy tropical evening with a drink.

The following day we can give you a quick tour of the area and show you some of the gems known only to the locals. We can help with your holiday itinerary, transport needs, eating out, car hire and food shopping.

During your stay our housekeeping staff will keep the villa clean and tidy, our gardener will keep the pool and garden immaculate and our cook can temp you with an awesome range of Thai and western dishes.


One of the many benefits of renting a villa is having the option of having meals provided in a beautiful, private, convenient and comfortable setting not to mention the huge cost savings.

Our highly experienced team provides our catering and they have a wealth of experience in catering to large and small groups. Their speciality is of course Thai food, which is renowned worldwide.

If you have children or adults with special food needs our team can provide everything from child friendly to Vegan needs and if you need some good old western food like Christmas Dinner or seafood BBQ they are can provide this.

Eating at the Villa also has some real practical benefits especially for families and large groups. Breakfast is transformed into a relaxing and enjoyable experience, wake to the smell of coffee and enjoy the buffet breakfast, which is set out on the poolside. Chat with your friends and family whilst the cook prepares your individually cooked meal. There is no wait for seats, wait for food, waiting for stragglers and costs are about the same or less as eating out.

In the evening enjoy your own private poolside restaurant, with comfortable furniture, great ambiance, total privacy and the convenience of being able to put young children to bed or have them amuse themselves. Drink your own stock of wine, beer and drinks. Stay as late as you like, don’t even think about driving or a taxi and then wonder why the bill is so low!


Both our properties were designed to meet the demanding needs of both the rental market and tropical living. The design links all rooms on the main floor to a large shaded poolside terrace that becomes the focus for activities, entertaining and relaxation.

Built on a single-level, from parking to poolside, they provide easy access and lots of usable space. Although the whole villa has air conditioning the design has used the natural wind flow to keep all areas well ventilated and cool without using air conditioning.

The generous poolside terrace provides ample space for alfresco dining for 20 or more, comfortable seating, poolside fun and relaxation. Guests can enjoy the great views over the pool and large garden to the nearby mountains and undeveloped land to the rear of the property.

Space is the common theme throughout the villa, both in floor space and ceiling height. The main living area features high feature ceilings and sliding windows opening onto the poolside terrace.

The construction and design has been superb, as has the finishing with the extensive use of teak and marble flooring. The result is that the villa has an overwhelming feeling of space, luxury and comfort set within a very practical, clutter free and relaxing environment.


Villa One has 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms (5 en suite) and can sleep 16 adults with ease. All bedrooms have AC and ceilng fans, large wardrobes with safes and have lots of floor space. We provide quality bed linen and towels. All beds have extra topper mattresses for added comfort.

About John Harradine

My Name is John and I have lived in Phuket since 2000. After selling my business in the UK it seemed such a great place to retire. Although retirement involves working harder than I ever did when I had a ‘real’ job. Despite there are many things in Thailand that seem a bit weird and quirky to a western view point you will after a short stay appreciate the saying. Thailand from the sublime to the ridiculous, but never boring! Away from the busy tourist areas you’ll discover the genuinely friendly and helpful character of the Thai people. I miss the culture in Europe (but not the weather) and that’s why I enjoy looking after our guests from all over the world to share a joke in my native language or meet and chat with people from all over the globe to learn a few words of Mandarin or Russian. Although earning a living is obviously important my real job satisfaction is to see my guests enjoying their special holiday in this paradise we call Phuket.

Why John Harradine chose Rawai

My choice of Nai Harn was pure luck but proved to a good one. Blessed with one of the best beaches on the island it has escaped the rather crazy ‘progress’ enjoyed by Kata, Karon and Patong. It still enjoys a village feel and is home to many expats for this reason. It’s also why you will find many good bars, restaurants and cafes catering delivering quality service at sensible prices. There’s also many quiet and almost ‘tourist free zones’ (which we will share with you) that provide a place to walk the dog or just enjoy great views.

What makes this villa unique

Both villas are located in an ideal place. We are bordered at the rear by undeveloped fields and we are at the end of a cul-de-sac so we have zero passing traffic. But we are about 150M from the main road to the beach with all amenities within walking distance. The design and layout provides a great venue for large groups to enjoy special occasions. I was heavily involved with the construction, finishing and furniture of both villas and always put what would look good and stylish over any cost consideration. We keep the villas in pristine condition and match that with the service we provide our guests. Our job satisfaction is seeing our guest’s faces light up when they see where they will be staying for their holiday

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a place! We have just returned from a few days where we rested in luxury on our way back to the UK from Australia and New Zealand. The setting is beautiful, the accommodation is every bit as special as it sounds in the description, the most noise is from the birdsong in the lush gardens and the icing on the cake for me was the swimming pool, which is fantastic for cooling down and relaxing. The owner is on site and is very helpful with local knowledge. I recommend asking him to book a massage by the pool! If mobility is restricted it would be useful to hire a car to reach the nearby spectacular coastline but local amenities are only a short walk away.

Location perfect, Clean, Amenities 5 star, John the owner extremely helpful and attentive

  • 5 of 5

Mountain View Villa 1 was the perfect home to stay for our family of 12. John's home was clean and very accessible to all the local Bars, restaurants and convenience stores and the house was perfect for our family that included small children, teenagers, adults (including very easy for wheel chair accessibility). The House staff were really friendly and did not impact on our privacy and enhanced our holiday making sure we had clean towels and linen, clean bathrooms and kitchen for our stay. We did not really need to leave the house as the two pools and the outside area were very comfortable. The outside dining areas were utilized very day even when we had some rain we are able to sit outside. Kai the house drive was available to take us t some of the local and far tourist sites as a group which was really nice to be able to travel as a group. I would recommend Mountain View Villa 1 to anyone that wants a relaxing, luxurious Phuket experience. Great valiue for money

Memorable 3 generations family of 15 -- A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Detailed well planned arrangements with owner John made us feel relaxed. The driver and chef are so obliging and we could order what we liked even the barbeque was terrific. Only complaint was the room in the basement which had mosquitoes and centipedes crawling in at night.

Many restaurants nearby and we drove to see the sunset at Promthep cape nearby.Our grandchildren really enjoyed jumping and swimming in the pool daily. John even gave us a bottle of wine and refunded money for the electricity we underutilised!

Luxury and refinement, with a real touch of class

  • 5 of 5

If anything, the initial property description (since updated) undersold this excellent property. I guess that was a reflection of its English owner and his partner. Our party of 13 spent 2 weeks in this lavish residence, spoiled rotten by the proprietor and his staff. The pleasant maids were ever present and on-hand to attend to our every need, re-appearing almost as if they had a sixth sense. The attention to detail in the build and maintenance of this property is impeccable. The proximity to nice and affordable restaurants is great so we relied less this time on having a full-time chef. I would recommend this villa to anyone interested in visiting Phuket, not just for the reasons stated above, but also because the owner puts in a whole lot of effort into making your stay on the island as good as possible, a great ambassador for Phuket.

Relaxing quiet spot in Phuket

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the villa with 2 other couples who had children and it was very well laid out to accommodate all of us and our different room requirements.

The villa was beautifully furnished and the pool and lovely gardens were great. There was free wi-fi, and washing machine facilities.

The rooms were lovely with comfy beds, affective air-con and en-suite bathrooms. You weren't able to flush toilet paper, so had to use the water hose to wash.

The location was quiet and relaxing, but still walking distance to a few restaurants and cafes, and further afield by taxi.

The villa was secured by gates, and had a parking area so easy to hire a car.

The owner was nearby so always on hand should we need anything.

Overall it was a lovely villa and very suited to families and couples, giving options to be together or have quiet time apart.

Nai Harn Beach
Car: recommended

Nai Harn beach (about 5 mins away) which was recently voted as one of the best in SE Asia is amongst the best on the island. Despite this, the area is still relatively underdeveloped and provides a haven for expats and tourists alike.

There are many local amenities such as a good range of cafes, quality restaurants, bars and small shops. Visit one of the many small spas for a massage or facial at prices you cannot believe. Venture further out to Rawai beach where long tail boats, small seafood cafes and small bars provide a uniquely Thai feel to the area. A little further, Chalong with its pier is the base for most of the islands water based activities.

If you want something a bit more exciting in the evening then take a short scenic drive to Kata, Karon or Patong. There you will find some of the more uniquely racy Thai evening entertainment venues as well as many world class restaurants and hotels.
