About Brent or Carl or Prim
We are a retired couple who travelled to Phuket many times over the years when we were living in Asia. Both of us are expats - me from Canada and my spouse from Sweden. We have lived overseas from our home countries for over 25 years. We purchased the property after looking at well over 50 villas on the beautiful island of Phuket. This was the best built, most private property that we saw. Privacy being extremely important to both of us, we usually wake in the morning and go for a swim 'as fresco'. It is very liberating:) When we are not in Thailand we spend our time in Barcelona where we have made a permanent home for ourselves as well as in Sweden where my spouse owns a summer house.
Brent or Carl or Prim purchased this villa in 2011
Why Brent or Carl or Prim chose Bangtao beach
Mandala Villa's were 'Highly Commended' at the recent Thailand Property Awards 2010. This property is very close to the exclusive Laguna Village property development, where you can find many 5 star restaurants and a small mall with shops of all kinds. The area and the amenities made our purchasing decision easy. We spent the winter of 2012/2013 at the property and loved every minute of it. We learned how to cook Thai food, which we both love, and when we were not cooking, we called a local restaurant that delivers right to the door within 30 minutes. Tesco grocery store is a 3 minute drive away, and there is a local market every two days where you can purchase anything from shrimp to watches. 300 metres from the beach walking takes about 15 minutes. On the beach you can find many restaurants, massage pavilions, and bars. Bang Tao beach is very quiet compared to Patong beach, which has become overrun with cheap package tours. Bang Tao is a more exclusive part of the island and much more sedate than Patong. Having said that, Patong is only a 30 minute drive away on spectacular sea view roads, if you want to have a bit of crazy to your vacation. Then, when you have got that our of your system, you can return to peaceful Bang Tao!
What makes this villa unique
Upon entry to the property, our villa is the second one to your right. Keep in mind that in Thailand, you drive on the left side of the road. Walking in the front door, you will be met with 20 foot ceilings, and a direct view to the pool and the garden - the first view of the villa will take your breath away. Each of the three bedrooms have its own ensuite bathroom, the master with an indoor/outdoor shower and soaker tub. Welcome to luxury!
