About John Harradine
My Name is John and I have lived in Phuket since 2000. After selling my Computer Services Business in the UK it seemed such a great place to retire. For the same reasons I think Phuket is a great place to retire to it also makes an ideal holiday destination. It has everything you could really want except of course cold weather which I do not miss. Thai people are very friendly and have a very different outlook on life, meaning they are pretty happy most of the time, they tend to live in the moment and do not make a judgement on others. My choice of Nai Harn was pure luck but proved to a good one. Blessed with one of the best beaches on the island it has escaped the rather crazy ‘progress’ enjoyed by Kata, Karon and Patong. It still enjoys a village feel and is home to many expats for this reason. It’s also why you will find many good bars and restaurants delivering quality service at sensible prices. There’s also a few quiet and almost ‘tourist free zones’ (which we will share with you) that provide a place to walk the dog or just enjoy great views.

What makes this Villa unique
The villas are located in an ideal place. We are bordered at the rear by undeveloped fields and we are at the end of a cul-de-sac so we have no passing traffic. But we are about 150m from the main road to the beach with all amenities within walking distance. The design and layout provides a great venue for large groups to enjoy special occasions. I was heavily involved with the construction, finishing and furniture of both villas and always put what would look good and stylish over any cost consideration. We keep the villas in pristine condition and match that with the service we provide our guests. Our job satisfaction is seeing our guest’s faces light up when they see where they will be staying for their holiday

Beautiful home, everything one needs is on the property. A ten out of ten!
This was a wonderful vacation for our whole family. The house accomadated 8 adults and 5 children with ease. The pool and the grounds lived up to the pictures, really beautiful surroundings. The location was ideal, very walkable to the beach, restaurants and shops. John was an amazing host, providing any assistance needed. We really looked at the reviews and we wholeheartedly recommend this property!
Great stay with Mountain Wiew Villas
We had a fantastic stay in the villa. My husbond and I invited our children with families to come with us to Phuket to celebrate my husbond turning 80 in Nowember, and I booked at John Harradine Mountain Wiew Villas, and it was a great choice! We where total 12 persons, and everyboby agreed that the villa very nice, spacious, clean and everything was fine. We had a wonderful time together, and I want to thank Mr. John for being a nice and helpful host! We will tell everyboby about this place and recommend it highly!

Our family had a great stay in Mountain View villas. The location was in a quiet yet central place close to beaches and shoppes. The villa itself were very spacious, clean, modern and overall very nice! The pool was amazing! John was a great host that was very helpful and friendly! Always there to answer your questions. The other staff at the villa was also very nice and friendly.
To summaries; Perfect stay in a beautiful house with amazingly friendly staff! Will definitely come back one day.
Séjour de 15 jours dans une super villa !!!!! Wahou
Très beau séjour dans une très belle villa fidèle aux photos. Maison très bien entretenus très propre avec un super personnel très discret. Je conseille vivement cette villa pour un séjour à Phuket. Merci
Location perfect, Clean, Amenities 5 star, John the owner extremely helpful and attentive
Mountain View Villa 1 was the perfect home to stay for our family of 12. John's home was clean and very accessible to all the local Bars, restaurants and convenience stores and the house was perfect for our family that included small children, teenagers, adults (including very easy for wheel chair accessibility). The House staff were really friendly and did not impact on our privacy and enhanced our holiday making sure we had clean towels and linen, clean bathrooms and kitchen for our stay. We did not really need to leave the house as the two pools and the outside area were very comfortable. The outside dining areas were utilized very day even when we had some rain we are able to sit outside. Kai the house drive was available to take us t some of the local and far tourist sites as a group which was really nice to be able to travel as a group. I would recommend Mountain View Villa 1 to anyone that wants a relaxing, luxurious Phuket experience. Great valiue for money
Nai Harn beach (about 5 mins away) which was recently voted as one of the best in SE Asia is amongst the best on the island. Despite this, the area is still relatively underdeveloped and provides a haven for expats and tourists alike.
There are many local amenities such as a good range of cafes, quality restaurants, bars and small shops. Visit one of the many small spas for a massage or facial at prices you cannot believe. Venture further out to Rawai beach where long tail boats, small seafood cafes and small bars provide a uniquely Thai feel to the area. A little further, Chalong with its pier is the base for most of the islands water based activities.
If you want something a bit more exciting in the evening then take a short scenic drive to Kata, Karon or Patong. There you will find some of the more uniquely racy Thai evening entertainment venues as well as many world class restaurants and hotels.
