Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Choeng Thale - Chom Tawan

RELAX AT UPMARKET BANG TAO BEACH; avoid crowded beaches/seediness further south

RARE CHRISTMAS-NY AVAILABILITY in POOLSIDE due to cancellation!! Along the stretch of road known as ‘Millionaire’s Mile”, within a small mixed condo/villa estate, you can choose one of two units. Either our expansive 243 sq metre 3 ensuite bedroom SERENE condo villa OR our 243 sq metre ground floor 3 ensuite bedroom POOLSIDE condo villa (next to 25m adult pool, separate children's wading pool, and sala with lounge chairs and tables). With teak wood floors, wood paneled interiors, ceiling fans (air conditioners as well, should the air flow across all the sliding doors be insufficient), king/queen beds, large en suite terrazzo bathrooms, spacious living and dining rooms, fully equipped European kitchen, all furnished in modern Thai style with regional accents, you may never want to go outside. Shame, as just outside the gates 200 metres across the grass/sand field beacons pristine Bang Tao beach (absent of the rows upon rows of crowded umbrellas and chairs one finds from Surin beach going south).

POOLSIDE CONDO VILLA: The best located condo villa in the Chom Tawan estate as it has a large grassy area for kinds to play in front while only steps away is the 25 metre adult and separate children's pool making it feel like a private pool, particularly as outside of Christmas/New Years most owners in the estate are working elsewhere in Asia. With terra cotta terraces on three sides, you have views of the pool (which looks magical with the lights at night) from the master bedroom, poolside bedroom, and living room. The outdoor dining terrace faces toward the Andaman Sea and enjoys a massive well protected open grass area in front of it. Inside, there are accents from our multi-week driving trip throughout Thailand. It does not get much better than this!

SERENE CONDO VILLA: Some people prefer a higher elevation so this unit is located on the third floor although similar layout and furnishings as the POOLSIDE CONDO VILLA. With balconies all around overlooking the Banyan Tree land it is very private allowing sounds of the birds and sea to relax you ... which is why it is called serene!

About Gordon or Jenny

My wife (British-South African) and I (Australian-Canadian) reside in Hong Kong although we did live in one of our units for a couple years on 'semi-retirement' we set up and furnished all of our places in Phuket as if they were homes rather than simply rental units so our friends and guests could truly enjoy themselves. What that means is that there will be more than the 6 pieces of low end cutlery and plates etc one often gets in typical rental units. We occasionally get back to paradise but do have to work a few more years before we can truly retire - these rentals help us cover the maintenance costs in the meantime.

Why Gordon or Jenny chose Phuket

The square footage/meterage of your accommodation is unusually large giving you space to feel comfortable as well as decorated and kitted out to live in. The tropical foliage and landscaping is amazing. You will not need to rush out to claim your chair by the pool (or your patch of sand on the beach) as the estate is not overpacked with rooms upon rooms of hotel guests. Other than at Christmas there are rarely more than a half dozen or so in residence - that is why the place is for romantics or families even though it is next to the Banyan Tree/Laguna Resort area and enjoys one of the best beaches in Phuket.

What makes this condo unique

One does not appreciate having the upmarket resorts around us as they make sure the beaches are kept clean and not overrun (until one goes further south and sees Surin, Patong, Karon, Kata, etc which party animals seem to like - we do not). Paradise should be about tropical foliage, pristine beaches, relaxed restaurants, and sounds of birds and waves rather than concrete, hawkers, and motors of jet-skis.

Perfect place for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Jenny and Gordon's place for 10 days with a couple of my friends on a 'girls retreat'. The apartment is spacious with lovely Thai touches and has everything you could possibly need to make it a home away from home - we couldn't believe our luck. We enjoyed Gordon's restaurant recommendations and every morning strolled, or jogged, into town to enjoy fantastic croissants and coffees at Bake cafe. We loved lounging around by the pool or at the beach across the road, but also managed to get out and explore Phuket which had a fantastic variety of things to do - sea kayaking, 5 star restaurants, spas, hidden beaches, etc. Gordon provided extremely useful welcome information, as well as thorough instructions for everything in the apartment.

Top class luxury poolside accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the poolside villa which was an excellent move for a family of six. The villa is very spacious, modern and tastefully decorated with lovely teak furniture and flooring. The kitchen is well equipped if you need to cook, but we used it mainly for breakfast and snacks. There is a full utility room with a washing machine, airer and iron and board. The details provided by Gordon and Jenny were very accurate, but you need to see it for yourself to appreciate how beautiful it is. Maid service was every other day and the bedding, towels and beach towels were changed on a regular basis. I met the maid one day and she was a delightful young lady who paid great attention to the presentation and cleanliness of the villa. The management company is situated on site and are open until 5pm each day. We were also given some mobile numbers in case of emergency out of hours.

The site was very quiet whilst we stayed (start of the rainy season) and we had the pool to ourselves. It was a short stroll down a grass bank and we had a gorgeous view of it from our villa. The average temperature was approx 30 deg and it mainly rained in the evenings so we were able to enjoy the weather during the day. I enjoyed the fact we had a dining terrace which had overhead fans - we used this area a lot. Also very comfortable lounge furniture was positioned on two of the terraces.

Gordon and Jenny provide excellent customer service, keeping in touch via email and nothing was too much trouble for them. I have already recommended this property to a friend and would highly recommend it to others.

Bang Tao beach is literally 5 minutes from the villa but we hired a car from Pure Car Rental. We did this on-line prior to our departure and I cannot fault them. They were excellent value for money. We were met at the airport and were driven to Chom Tawan in our car and another car carried our luggage for a fee of 600 Baht. Drop off at the airport was excellent and hassle free. We toured the complete island of Phuket and even went north of to Phang Nga. We also took boats to Phi Phi Island, James Bond Island and the Koh Yao islands - highly recommend.

Locally we used the following restaurants:

Pesto - an Italian/Thai restaurant. Good value and excellent top quality food.

Black Cat - French/Thai restaurant. Excellent value and friendly service. Cocktails are incredibly cheap!

Sunset - Thai restaurant. Most meals between £1 and £2. Local families eat here which is always a good sign.

A slice of heaven in Phuket

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse in the Sky is a destination in itself! We'd return to Phuket just to have the opportunity to stay there again. It's perfectly kitted out and it is uber comfortable - everything at your fingertips, beautifully designed. The pool is a real highlight - it's shaded so you can spend all day in it. There's a shallow end for kids, and it's long enough to swim proper lengths too. The property is set in an immaculate location - a few minutes walk to Bangtao beach and to some wonderful dining spots - Tony's was a highlight.

Staying at the Penthouse in the Sky is a real treat! I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a truly relaxed and wonderful holiday!

Outstanding luxury penthouse in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most marvellous stay in Gordon and Jenny's fabulous apartment. This penthouse is true high end luxury located in the best position in the probably the best located complex in phuket. The penthouse is beautifully furnished with artwork and sculptures and polished teak flooring. The pool in the penthouse is crystal clear as is the wonderful shared pool. No trouble bagging a sunlounger as we rarely had to share the 25 metre pool with anyone else. We swam in starlight most evenings. The position of the penthouse backing onto gently swaying trees is peaceful and the most private of the complex. It was very safe and secure with friendly security on the gate.The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen better equipped than home. Birthday cake making no problem which thrilled my 8 year old.Gordon and Jenny provided lots of invaluable information on how to get the best from the area. We were able to stroll out to the completely unspoilt beach in 5 minutes and enjoy many foot in the sand thai restaurants for a few pounds. I had 5 massages during our 2 week stay. Chom Tawan is perfectly placed being minutes from fabulous restaurants, western supermarkets and beaches and a world away from the noisy seedy resorts found further south. When we first arrived at the penthouse it almost seemed too swanky vast and gorgeous for a family holiday. I needn't have worried. We settled in just fine. Only problem is we have been spoilt for all our holidays yet to come!

Beautiful relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved to stay at the penthouse. It is a beautiful place in a relaxing surrounding. Close to the beach and also not far away from local restaurants. We loved to go for a drink to the Gaia Bar which is located at the beach just outside of Chom Tawan.

We will come back for sure!

Bang Tao/Layan Beach is only 100 meters away inviting you to swim in the waves, stroll an hour or so along its 6 km shores (absent of rows upon rows of umbrellas one finds on the packaged tour beaches from Surin beach on down south), enjoy a Thai beach massage, or indulge in fresh lobster and a pina colada at one of the many hotel / beach restaurants (including Niki Beach Club or Tony's Beach Restaurant). Or perhaps wander up the road to play a round of golf, hit a few tennis balls, take a pontoon through the canals of Laguna Resort, shop in canal village, horseback ride among the tropical trees, or romance with a high end spa and meal at Banyan Tree/Outrigger/Angsana/Laguna Beach resorts. Venturing further you can scuba dive, sail the Andaman Sea/Phang Nga Bay, kayak caverns, white water raft, elephant ride, shop at Phuket Central Festival, be entertained by the Phuket Fantasea carnival/show, marvel at the Stunt Man Show, or dine at the endless restaurants on the island. If you return to your well appointed accommodation early, you may watch the nearby fireworks

Other Activities: Resort Spa or Thai beach massages. Indulge in fresh lobster and a pina colada at a beach restaurant!

Golf: Right next door is the immaculate and well manicured 18 hole Laguna Phuket golf course (within the gates of Banyan Tree Resort) previously used for the Thai Golf Open. Non-members are welcome but recommended booking tee times a few days in advance as it is a popular course. See http://www.lagunaphuketgolf.com/

About 20 minutes away is the Blue Canyon golf course with two 18 hole courses. There are three additional golf courses elsewhere on the island.
