Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday townhome in Vanich Bay Front Ville - Oyster Cove Unit C

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Our apartment overlooks Ao Yon Beach, near Cape Panwa, with uninterrupted open ocean views down the Malacca Straits. It is far enough away from the tourist haunts of Patong and Kata to avoid the throngs, but close enough to let you mingle when you feel the urge. Spend your days on the beach, in the infinity-edge pool, touring the nearby islands, or checking out the sights and culture of Phuket. Dine in the many upmarket or low cost restaurants nearby. When you arrive, you can enjoy a bottle of wine and a fruit platter with our compliments, while you think about what to do first, or contemplate not doing anything at all.

The townhouse is in a small complex of four. The townhouse has upstairs and downstairs living areas, a fully equipped western kitchen and three bathrooms. Two of the three bedroom have king size beds and the third has twin single beds. There are balconies off the main bedroom and upstairs living area, and the downstairs living area opens on to a terrace overlooking the pool. The pool and entertaining area are shared by the four townhouses, but the townhouses are generally not all occupied at the same time.

A satellite television service is provided, along with a DVD player and a small DVD collection. The television has PC and HDMI connectivity. Wi-Fi internet access is also provided, at no extra cost.

The kitchen has a full size fridge/freezer, microwave, oven, stovetop and filter coffee maker.. There is also a small portable gas BBQ. The bedrooms are air-conditioned, as is the downstairs kitchen/living area, but you may prefer to enjoy the breezes instead.

Housekeeping services are provided three times a week, and this can include washing and ironing of your clothes. More frequent housekeeping may be able to be arranged at an additional cost.

There are a few restaurants within walking distance, and many more just a little further away and around Cape Panwa. The Phuket Aquarium is also at Cape Panwa. Phuket town is about 10km away, with the famed weekend markets a little closer than that. The Rawai, Kata and Patong areas are all within a 30 minute drive. A small number of local taxis operate around Ao Yon, but if you are comfortable driving in Phuket and want to get around a fair bit, you may find hiring a vehicle to be more convenient.

Concierge services are provided as a courtesy for arranging airport pick up and car hire with collection at the apartment (normal rates paid to service providers only). Other services available include arranging a car with driver, booking tours, and stocking the pantry (minimal charge associated with these options). If there is anything else that you need, just let us know. We’ll do our best to assist you.

Beautiful Condo with a View

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending time at this beautiful condo. The owner Rob speaks English and is in a European time zone for communication. When we arrived, we were kindly greeted by the Property Manager Kuhn Meen and the housekeeper Da. We were able to comfortably settle in while enjoying a fruit basket, snacks, and wine welcome gift. Coffee, tea, sugar, and milk were also provided. Travel size shampoo and shower gel were provided, but hand soaps were not. There is a washing machine with laundry soap, so it was easy to pack light.

The beach is just a two minute walk away, where we found a massage spa, two restaurants, and a boat tour provider. A rental car is needed to get into town for access to more restaurants, convenience store, shopping, and sight seeing. The sprawling Weekend Market is a 20-30 minute drive away. The property manager Kuhn Meen was accessible by text and email during our stay and was very helpful. The condo was clean with amazing views of the ocean. We swam in the pool everyday and loved relaxing by the tropical garden.

Thank you Rob, Meen & Da!

Great stay in Cape Panwa

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fantastic 9 days at the Oyster Cove Villas in 5 star accommodation. All arrangements made with Kuhn Meen worked like clockwork and the Villa was kept spotless by Da who arrived on time every time. We spent hours in the fantastic pool and would recommend staying there to anyone. The Beach Bar was our favourite spot for sundowners and dinner on the beach. Also great food at the German "Come Back" Restaurant. We will definitely be back !!!!! Thank you Rob, Meen, Da and Geoff for making our stay there so special. Boyd and family.

So good we're going back again this year!!!

  • 5 of 5

The holiday feel started before we even left for Thailand. Our dealings with Rob were fantastic, he is a gentleman and from the very start made us feel like his key objective was to have a great break at his house in Thailand.

Armed with the knowledge that we were in good hands we headed off to Thailand with my wife, a 5 year old, a 2 year old and the mother in law! When we landed in Phuket a driver was there to meet us at the airport and got us to the house smoothly and easily where the waiting property manager was extremely helpful and helped us settle in.

The property itself is delightful and we had all of the creature comforts we would want whilst on holiday, which served as a catalyst to our enjoyment of the beauty of Thailand. We spent much time in the pool in the property where we met some of the neighbours who were delightful (one was resident there) and the other a seasoned visitor to the property. They too were extremely helpful, friendly and generous. The house also served as a great base from which to explore and we were able to comfortably enjoy a multitude of beaches and find our way out to some of the more deserted islands too.

Overall, we loved the house, loved the country and were delighted with the experience. We are going back again in 4 months and hope to visit many times in the years to come. Thank you again for making all of this possible Rob.

Absolutely nice

  • 5 of 5

Very Calm and beautyful Place to Stay with a Breathtaking View from the Master Bedroom. I Rented the House for the hole September and i will recommend this property for everybody who needs a Beautyful and Calm Vacation.

The Rooms were luxury, tastefully decorated and clean, the Kitchen has everything you need for Cooking (Only left was a Rice Cooker), there is also a Washing Machine and additional Room for drying the Clothes. The Housecleaning was made every second Day. The Bathroom are also nice and clean. The Pool is really big enough and we used it every Day. Every promise was held by the Owner and the Property Manager was very Helpful and waiting for us at arrival.

The Beach AO Yun is not more then 100 Meter away and very clean. Another one is just around the next Corner but has much rocks and is not so clean. The Location is just far enough away from the touristy hustle and bustle of the larger cities to really give you a taste of what real Phuket is all about.

This Property is worth every penny, if we return to Phuket with a Bigger Party, this is the only place we will stay.

We have just had nine days at Oyster Cove and they were brilliant.

My wife and I have been coming to Phuket for years so we know the Cape Panawa region very well and it is our favourite part of the island. We also knew a little about this property from our touring around the area and have always admired it, so that when we saw it on the HomeAway website we didn’t hesitate to make a booking.

We had some idea about what we were getting when we let the property, but everything about it was so much better than we could ever have expected.

What we weren't expecting, and what took us completely by surprise, was the owner’s generosity and thoughtfulness.

The first thing that touched us was the floral arrangements, and as we soon discovered, they were not only in the living area but also in the bedrooms and even in the bathrooms as well; they weren’t just your token posy bowls, they were stunningly beautiful, bountiful displays.

Secondly, and certainly the biggest surprise, was the thought and care that went into making sure that for the first couple of days we would be well provisioned. The fruit platter was enormous, bread (white and wholemeal) and snacks were provided along with jams, condiments and spices; in the fridge, there was milk, eggs , beer and a bottle of wine.

It never occurred to us that a host for a holiday rental would go to so much trouble.

The town house certainly exceeded our expectations and in a way the photographs on the website do not do it justice. The property is lovely but the setting, particularly at dawn and dusk was absolutely serene. Normally we would spend our days touring around the island or going over the bridge to Phangnga and up into Krabi but the truth was that, for most of the time, we were happy to stay “home”, or if we had been out at all, then we really looked forward to getting back there.

Khun Meen the property manager was great to deal with and cheerful with it, but every thing was so well set up that other than meeting us when we arrived and seeing us off when we left (at 7.00 am on the day of departure, the poor man!) we had no need to contact him at all during our stay. However, as he was the one who organised everything on owner’s behalf he certainly did a wonderful job.

We could not recommend this town house highly enough and our time spent at Oyster Cove has been the best holiday we have ever had in Phuket.

We will be returning - without doubt.
