Where do I start with my praise for Villa 1, Eric, Khun Boot and the staff? I feel that I can not do them justice.
The moment I arrived at the front gate of the complex and was refused entry until my identity was validated I felt a sense of safety and security and I knew that I had picked the right property for us. Whilst very courteous, the security staff were rigorous with their procedures and I welcomed that - a job well done.
The Villa complex is stunningly beautiful. The design of the hard and soft landscaping on the approach to villa 1 hinted that something magical lay beyond and yes, there was, behind that beautiful antique blue door was Khun Boot and her staff, warm welcoming smiles, cool towels and drinks. It literally was like entering another world. One of safety security peace, tranquility, relaxation, ..... I could go on but I'm sure you have heard it all before. The villa was simply magnificent. Fixtures, fittings, furniture, antiquities everything was just beautiful and exceeded expectations.
Khun Boot - the most delightful hostess I have ever encountered. Her warmth, quiet efficiency, delicate manner, beauty, style and tactful guidance on what would best suit our needs made this our best holiday ever. She anticipated our every need and was was always on hand to fulfill them. Under her discrete guidance the staff were present but unobtrusive.
The chef and food were superb. Everything she touched became a feast for the body & soul. We all had difficulty dressing to leave, our clothes were too tight!
Eric what a fabulous man - he came especially to wish my husband Happy Birthday and brought us the best birthday cake ever - ice cream.
Kris I could go on and on but I am left with a dilemma, should I tell everyone how fabulous it was and have them rush to book it and make it unavailable for us or should we sell everything we own, try and buy it and Khun Boot and keep it to ourselves?
Thank you so much we have have the most wonderful time in our own little magical kingdom, made some very happy memories and look forward to returning.
Kind Regards - Rita Tucker, Dubai. (October 2015)
Hi Eric and Oe,
I'm glad you liked the photos ( they were just some that my parents took) I'm sure the photographers photos will be quite spectacular with the sea and your gorgeous villa as the backdrop. We really had a beautiful day and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Everyone loved staying in your villa..... Boot was just amazing.... What a beautiful, warm, caring woman - we all loved her. ALL of your staff were wonderful - and really made our stay at the villa a special one.
. . . we had a wonderful day on the boat - it was definitely a high-light for us. The Captain (boat driver ha ha) was agree at and professional.
So once again Eric, Thank you, Oe, Boot and your amazing staff for our unforgettable experience at your villa, we will definitely be back!
You can be congratulated with your marvelous house and staff,

I hope that you had a wonderful trip to the Maldives. I can tell you we had a fabulous time in Phuket. The villa was beyond our expectations and the staff were equally wonderful. Some of the best food I have had in Thailand in the 7 years of living here!
Thank you for sharing your home with us. I hope that we can return again in 2015.
The incredible over 200 degrees direct sea views, the two private beaches, the total calm of the surroundings and the magnificent architecture all combine to make your house the most beautiful house we have ever seen.

The Experience in the house was Fantastic.
Everything was perfect.
It was a fantastic get away with no need of leaving the house because you had everything there and so much better then a hotel with the wonderful service of all your 7 staff to pamper us.
All the best.

Thankyou for allowingus to stay in your wonderful villa. We have rented houses before but have enver had such friendly capable staff, especially Kun Arom the baby sitter was an angel.
The food was perfect especially the Thai food, you have an excellent cook: just order from the menu in the morning and fresh food is served in the evening. The pool is great and my children very much enjoyed playing at the two pro private beaches chasing crabs etc. under supervision of Kun Arom of course.
I GIVE YOU TOP STAR AND WILL RECOMMEND YOU TO OUR FRIENDS, greetins Petera and husband and friends.

Just a quick email to thank you for you help with organising our holiday at the above Villa.
My husband and I and our friends had the most amazing, relaxed holiday we have ever had! Apart from a bumpy start (I left my passport behind and needed to follow behind the others!), the minute we arrived at the villa, the scenery and the staff were second to none! We've travelled fairly extensively and thought we'd seen incomparable vistas (I have a sister on the coast in Monaco). But, I have to say the holiday we had at the above villa was a 'once in a lifetime'... the only problem being, we would like to do it every year!
I congratulate you on a fine selection of staff; Boot and each one of the staff were very attentive and nothing was a problem for them.
I have attached my bank account details for the bond refund assuming there were no problems
Once again, thank you for an unforgettable holiday,
- Fiona Sibson
