There is a balcony on the first floor which the other two bedrooms share.

Excellent night life is not far with Kata, Karon and Patong 15 - 30 minutes away. There are also numerous small bars in the immediate area and two night clubs open until 6 am, these are liveliest in the high and mid seasons. Phuket has a number of high standard golf courses; the closest one to the villa is Phuket Country Club golf course which is 20 minutes away. Fishing expeditions run from Rawai beach.

Refurbished in 2010: The villa has under gone some major refurbishments during January and February 2010. We have installed all new stainless and glass railing to all the balconies and roof terrace, built a roof top sala to enjoy the great views while keeping out of the sun. All new windows and doors have been fitted and the whole villa really does have a smart modern feel to it.

The garden has been landscaped and the entire property inside and out has been redecorated.

New furniture have been purchased for both the garden and pool areas as well as the roof top terrace.

The 4th bedroom is a detached studio over the car port next to the pool, it has it's own access from the garden without disturbing the other guests in the villa. It is fully fitted out to the same high standard and in the same style as the main house. This work is all new in April 2010.

About Trevor Appleby

A British ships Master who as spend much of the last 30 years in Asia, both working and on holiday. Finally deciding to buy a home in Thailand in 2010 and with extensive knowledge of Phuket decide that the south was the area I wanted to live in.

Trevor Appleby purchased this villa in 2010

Why Trevor Appleby chose Rawai

The villa is modern both design and finish and is in a great location, a quite road with no passing traffic. A small but functional garden and a private swimming pool both garden and pool are not over looked by the neighbours.

The villa has a lot of space spread over 3 floors and with a roof top terrace, salas (outside covered areas) are in the garden and on the roof terrace, great for eating or relaxing.

What makes this villa unique

The location is great easy access to Naiharn Beach, Rawai Beach and Chalong: Naiharn Beach is one of the best beaches on the island great for swimming with beautiful sand and water. Rawai Beach is great for bars and restaurants the best sea food on the island. Chalong as good shopping and is the many access point for the boat trips, both diving and island hopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Trevor,

We hope this email finds you well. We have just come back to London from our stay in Phuket and miss it very much already!

We had a wonderful time in your very comfortable house and thanks for sorting out the sound system, which worked like a charm. All arrangements worked perfectly and Richard was super helpful everytime we called! The new facelift to the villa definitely gives it a fresh modern feel.

We are so glad we stayed where we did and not around the more - unbearable, even though interesting to see - touristy part of the island. We are already thinking of going back next year!?!?!

Thanks again and keep us posted if anything changes with the villa.

Best wishes.

Ed and Muriel

Perfect base for a great family holiday in Phuket

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight stayed for a fortnight at the wonderfull villa Tamarind, and it was a great base for our fantastic holiday in Phuket. The rental included collection from the airport for our party, which was one less thing for us to worry about and was an example of the great service offered by Trevor the owner and his property managers Ian and Kathy.

Ian and Kathy could not do enough to help us during our stay, providing invaluable advice on car hire, local restaurants, bars (you must go to the Sunshine Bar in Rawai), places to visit, etc. We had a couple of minor teething problems when we arrived, and Ian and Kathy sorted them out without fuss.

A special mention to Benne, who is a fantastic cook who will come in and treat you to the best Thai meal you have ever tasted, in the villa itself. This service is exceptionally well-priced - we recommend the Thai prawn cakes and Satay.

The pool was a big hit for our family allowing us to cool off when sun-bathing. Sometimes photos exagerate the quality...not in this case. Everything was superb.

The villa location was close to beaches, bars and restaurants, but we would recommend hiring a car to get around the island. We would recomend this no matter where you stay in Phuket as there is much to see and do. Ian and Kathy will sort the car hire out for you, without fuss.

One of our favourite days was a trip up to Phang Nga bay where we hired a local Thai chap to take us out in his boat to James Bond island, and around the islands in the bay - unforgettable! Follow the first sign you see when you get onto the mainland, rather than the more commercial boats further round the coast.

Car: recommended

The villa is located at the end of a side road about 100 meter from the main road of Soi Saiyuan. This is a concrete road (not the normal dirt track!) and has only private villas on it. It is quiet and safe with no passing traffic or noise.

Nai Harn, Ya Nui, Laem Kha, Rawai and Freedom beach are all within 5 - 10 minutes and are extremely beautiful and undeveloped, ideal for romantic walks, family picnics or just relaxing in peace after a heavy night!

They are a lot quieter than the package tour destinations of Kata, Karon and Patong though this is where one must go for jet ski's, parascending and water skiing. Nai Harn provides the perfect place from which to dip in to these areas and also to explore the whole of Phuket. Thai massages are offered on Nai Harn beach, the ideal spot to relax in.

People flock from all over Phuket to watch the sunset and enjoy a drink on Promthep cape, just next to Nai Harn beach.

There are a range of excellent local restaurants catering for every taste; for very good Thai cuisine we recommend Rusean Thai. See below for a list of further activities and attractions.

Other Activities: Elephant safari, ATV tours, Muay Thai training
