Excellent Property in need of some TLC
Villa Santenay is an excellent property situated in a quiet area of what has become a very busy Island. The house whilst well equipped lacked a little TLC. During our stay a light bulb in a bathroom stopped working and even though reported to the housekeeper was not replaced. On one day the power was off all day which was nobodies fault. Unfortunately when the power went off our car was behind the electric gate. No problem if we could use the key to unlock and open manually. Unfortunately the key is not kept at the house but was with the Caretaker who was 2 hours away in Phan Nga. This meant we were trapped at the house for the whole day. My mentioning it may be useful to leave the key at the house rather than away from it was totally ignored so the next person in the same situation would have the same problem. A word of warning on the electric is that it is very expensive in Phuket. Our 12 day stay cost 3500 Baht at the end of the holiday. We were using 2 Aircons from about 9pm until 9am every night but I still felt that was a lot.
Phuket since our last visit in 2002 has become very expensive, very commercial and very crowded. To drive from the Villa always seams to mean you have to cross the roundabout at Chalong meaning sitting in traffic and a 6 mile journey generally takes more than 1/2 an hour. All that said we had a wonderful 2 weeks and did not let these minor irritations spoil our holiday. The pool and garden are well kept and much enjoyed by our family although an outside BBQ could be an excellent addition.
Some extra tips for those of you who require baby items I would contact Phuket Baby Rentals via her website and speak to Jackie. She gives a fantastic service and is extremely helpful. Through Jackie we were put in contact with Harvey who took us on a fantastic personalised trip around Phang Nga for the same price as if we were in a normal tour group of 30! He also told us where to buy the best chocolate croissants I have ever tasted at Flints-one bakery at Rawai Beach whom also have a website.
Would I go back to Phuket? Maybe not as it has changed too much for me but if that is what you like you could stay at the Villa Santenay and have a wonderful time.
It is great!
We stayed there for 6 nights and enjoyed a good holiday. It was fantastic. The staff there were kind and helped us a lot. I would recommend it to you.
BEST vacation stay EVER!
This is the absolute best vacation stay ever! The house was PERFECT! Everything was clean, the home was so beautiful, the pool was clean, the yard was very well maintained. This is the reason I never stay in hotels. Staying here does require you to have either your own rental car or a private driver ( which we had ). We loved it so much, we are already planning another trip.
Thanks so much to the owner for making this available to us. It was an extravagant joy to be able to make family memories here! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
