About Ian Bythell and Jason Burgess

We are friends and joint owners of this property. Whilst I live in the UK with my family, Jason lives with his girlfriend in Thailand.

Ian Bythell and Jason Burgess purchased this villa in 2012

Why Ian Bythell and Jason Burgess chose Ban Tai

We built the villa from scratch. We chose this location as the area is pure paradise. Whilst all amenities are literally a 'stone's through' away, the villa location is tranquil surrounded by huge palm trees with fantastic views across the bay of Thong Nai Pan Yai

What makes this villa unique

The views are incredible. All activities and amenities are within a few minutes walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a lovely week in your beautiful villa, we all had a fantastic holiday. The house was very clean and very large even for two families with children. It is well equipped. and within a couple minutes walk from the beach. The beach is absolutely stunning and there are some fantastic restaurants.The view from the villa is lovely.

The island provided enough interests to ensure all of the family found something to occupy their time from lying on the beach, to riding on elephants, snorkelling and making boat trips.

Booking the villa was straight forward and efficient due to the owners prompt replies, helpful information and perfect organisation.

We wanted a holiday in a tropical paradise and we certainly found it at Sea View Villa - its setting is perfect, you feel you have reached paradise. The trip exceeded all our expectations in every aspect. We will all treasure those memories for a long time.

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week in Aug 2017 and had a relaxing stay.

The house its self is big, bright, clean; just a short walk from the town and beach.

The Wifi very good; my husband was able to catch up with work and the kids could all watch online content on their iPads at the same time! The washing machine is really good, all 3 bedrooms are en-suite with AC and a fan. Even in August we didn't need the AC.

Transfers from Thong Sala Pier are 1000 bht each way. Noos met us as we arrived and she look us to the Big C Supermarket so we could stock up on some supplies before heading to the villa. The transfer itself is about 30 minutes.

Included in the rental rate is a mid-week clean, which includes fresh bed sheets and towels.

The kitchen is well equipped and although we only ate breakfast in the villa.

Thong Nai Pan Yai beach is beautiful and has many restaurants and bars.

This is an ideal rental for families or friends looking for a relaxing stay on Koh Phangan

Thank you Ian, Jason and Noos for a lovely stay in your home.

Beautiful Villa close to best beach on Koh Phangan

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 5 days with wife and 3 kids in this very spacious and clean villa. All was as promised with a great view of the bay from the heights. Really only a 4 minute walk up from the shops on the 1 main street and easily doable on foot. If you do rent a vehicule, better to get a car as parts of the road are still dirt and is uneven. Internet and cable tv all worked fine, and Jason was most helpful with any questions we had or small problems to be taken care of since he lives close by and answered us right away. A/C worked great in the 3 bedrooms as well as fans and ventilators in the common areas. This part of the Thong Nai Pan beach is the better one as it is more authentic and has cheaper restaurants.Would easily recommend this place for families or groups up to 6 people. One piece of advice, stock up at the Super C supermarket in Thong Sala (arrival pier) if you intend on dining in a lot as the local 7/11 doesn't have that much of a choice of food for dinners. Also recommend H2O diving co for great diving out at Sail Rock. Super well organized and well run outfit!

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 16 year old daughter for 16 nights, 28 June -14 July. Correspondence via email with Ian was clear and he responded very quickly.

We were met at the ferry by Noos and driven to the house. The fee for the transfer was 1000 Thai baht which is exactly what we were told. It was very nice to be met at the ferry, particularly as the skies opened up and poured with rain. When we arrived, Jason was there to meet us to tell us about the house etc.

The house is exactly as shown in the photos. Very spacious and well designed to take in the wonderful views.

The air con in the bedrooms worked really well and the floors helped to retain the coolness throughout the day when the air con was off. We didn't need air con in the living spaces as all the windows and doors open, providing cross through ventilation and the elevated nature of the house allows breezes to flow in.

The house was thoroughly cleaned every 4 days, floors mopped, linen changed, beds made etc.

A bonus for us was that the WIFI was great. Our daughter needed to do some VCE study on line and the wifi was fast and worked well.

Noos made various bookings for us, including a trip to Angthong marine park, a local snorkelling trip and also assisted in hiring scooters. She was very helpful, checked in on us and gave advice when asked about restaurants etc.

If I was to suggest anything at all, then perhaps a coffee pot would be a great thing to have at the house.

I would definitely recommend people to stay here. It's a perfect location in the best part of Koh phangan. Not too touristy but still has the infrastructure needed to have a good time. And the house is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

We look forward to coming back some time soon.

I can’t recommend this house to anyone

  • 2 of 5

I am sorry to say it but it’s was disappointing over all experience. We had this place recommended to us by our friend who stayed there 4 years ago, but things didn’t go exactly the way that we hoped for:

1. Arranged pick from port – additional charge.

2. Final part of the road to get to the house is in very bad condition, if you planning to take a bike

3. Most of the evenings we cooked and stayed at leaving room, there is NO AC in it and it gets very hot and uncomfortable.

4. Lights in the house are very week, when we cooked we have to turn additional lights from phones in order to see what we are cooking.

5. “Cleaning” for additional charge includes only “cleaning bathrooms and changing bedsheets. When we left, we didn’t know it, so we left dishes after the breakfast. When we got back they were still in the sink! And it attracted (in hot no AC leaving room) a lot of flys. That surely didn’t make us happy.

6. Smell in the bathroom upstairs. This is really bad; it stinks especially in the evening. I bought air freshener, but it didn’t work. I said about it several times, and was told that we should not throw toilet paper in the toilet. It’s not a big deal, but if this is a problem we should know those things in advance.

7. Last day of our stay, we got back from the beach and everybody were showering and getting ready when we realized that water is finished. At that very moment was standing in the shower with conditioner in my hair. We contacted Jason and it was fixed in 30 minutes, but still it was something that you don’t want to deal with your last day.

Although, we got very good deal on the house rent, taking everything under consideration, I can’t recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: Firstly before anybody believes this review please take time to read all our 5 star reviews. We have never received anything but praise in the past. This review is unfair and not a true reflection of the very high standards we set ourselves. These guests booked for 5 nights but they were so happy with the villa and location that they extended to 11 nights. It is not our usual way to 'rubbish' our guests but in this instance we will be honest. A few points will give the reader a picture of them. Since the guests departure we have found a large crack in the TV screen. This was not present before. 3 saucepans have also had to be thrown away as they were burnt. Not burnt before. The guests hired bikes from a local company which they damaged & refused to pay for. We had to intervene to resolve. There were complaints from locals about the rudeness of the guests to them. Due to time of year and last minute booking these guests had a discount. Response to other points: We charge all guests for a pick up from port. This is extra & not included in the price as explained upon booking. There is a 10m section of road that has not been resurfaced. This was regraded the day after guests arrived. They saw the road before they hired bikes & were happy. There is no AC in living room. We have bi-folding doors at the front of the villa which open onto the balcony. We have AC's in all bedrooms. (Never been an issue before) We change our light bulbs regularly as they do not last for long. We had a few 'blow' prior to their arrival & replaced them. If they had informed us we would have replaced. Cleaning is not an additional charge. We agreed with the guests that cleaning was cancelled to give more discount. They then asked for cleaners which we supplied at cost. Cleaning of crockery & cutlery is not covered. It is not covered by any villas We did advise not to put paper in the toilet but in the bin as it can cause blockages. This is common throughout Thailand. We cleared the next day. The water supply to the villa is rain supplied via a tank. There is no mains supply in the area. We use clean water from rain or truck. This is normal for the area. We ask that water is not wasted. We have rules for reasons. Please read our very positive 5 star reviews from previous guests. Jason is on call 24/7. Previous guests will confirm we are very helpful & quick to respond with absolutely anything. Above all we want our guests to have a great time for great value!

Great place, great house and a great experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jason's house with 6 people for 11 nights during christmas and new year and had an overall very nice experience! The house is spacious, very modern and with a beautiful view over the bay! The Wifi is working perfectly :) and its only a 5 min walk to the next beach. The only thing which could be improved are the lights in the bedrooms which are to weak to read a book or to see your clothes in the closet if it is already dark outside ;)

However, we can highly recommend this house!! :D

Owner's Response: Hi guys, thank you very much for your review. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay and we do really value the information you provide in the review. It helps us understand what we're doing right and maybe what we're not... As you say the villa is 'great', very modern and in a super location. We'll certainly take on board your comments about the lighting and improve this. We would love to see you visit again in the not too distant future and thanks once again for choosing to book with us.

Die Villa hat unsere Erwartungen voll erfüllt. Das Haus ist in einem guten Zustand und für größere Reisegruppen bis zu 6 Personen gut geeignet. Der Fußweg zur Villa ist schwierig, weil der Straßenzustand sehr schlecht ist. Für ältere oder gebrechliche bzw. körperlich eingeschränkte Menschen ist er nicht geeignet. Der Fußweg zum nahen Stand beträgt realistisch ca. 12 Minuten. Nach Einbruch der Dunkelheit kann man ihn nur sicher mit Taschenlampen gehen. Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Jason und "Nuss" war sehr gut. Bei Notwendigkeit waren Sie jederzeit erreichbar und hilfsbereit. Alles in allem können wir auch einen längeren Aufenthalt (wir waren etwas mehr als 3 Wochen dort) in dieser Villa sehr empfehlen.
