Phuket Rental Villas

Baan Kata Villas

The villa is located on the side of a steep hill and has several huge boulders on the site which have been incorporated into the villa. It fronts right on the rocks which lead down to the sea about 15 metres below.

The swimming pool (6Mx15M) is on the edge of the rocks and has a dramatic infinity effect. The villa faces directly west so there are always spectacular sunsets.

There is a great view of Pu island which is one of the few islands along the west coast of Phuket. There is a tastefully designed wall around the villa and much vegetation. It is very private and secluded.

The villa itself consists of 4 separate buildings with a built up area of 3400 sq. ft. on 9000 sq.ft. of land. There are 3 bedrooms and attached bathrooms. The exteriors of the buildings are light beige sandstone. The villa has been designed to be as much as possible in harmony with nature, which means lots of balconies, large windows, high ceilings, trees, shrubs and of course magnificent views of the sea. All the doors and windows slide back into the walls giving a very open, spacious feeling. The bathrooms, kitchen, etc are very modern. A lot of attention has been paid to the bathrooms and each of the bathrooms adjoining the bedrooms has outside showers in a very natural setting. The owner’s wife is a Japanese interior designer so the influences are a combination of Japanese, Balinese, and Thai. There are many artifacts, statues, carvings, doors etc, from Bali in the villa and the garden. The general level of finish is equivalent to an Amanresort.

Baan Kata Villas1I will walk you through the villa. You park your car in the parking area on top of the hill and walk down a gradually descending private path to the front gate, which is an old and large Javanese door. After entering you walk down about 8-10 graduated steps to a white sandstone walkway, which is flanked, on both sides by lotus ponds. Behind the lotus pond on your left is the service building which includes the kitchen, store room and servant’s room. Behind the pond on your right is a guest villa building and attached bathroom. The bathroom is next to a huge rock, which forms one of the sides of the outdoor shower. The guest villa has its own private patio and garden with views of the sea and much foliage. Access to the guest villa is across stepping stones in the lotus pond.

Baan Kata Villas2Returning to the entrance walkway you keep walking a few more meters to a large rock, which you proceed around and down (about 3 meters) to the two front buildings, both of which are almost on the cliff overlooking the sea. The front left building has a bedroom on the ground floor just next to the swimming pool. In front of this room is a patio and a small garden. The ground floor rooms in the front buildings have a unique feel to them in that you feel very connected to the sea. The 1st fl. of the left front building is the main living/dining area and has a large balcony with a spectacular sea view. It has an extra high ceiling and is very spacious. At the back of this room is a pantry and bathroom.

The front right building has a large study on the ground floor which opens on to a covered patio and the swimming pool. The master bedroom, on the 1st fl., has its own balcony and large bathroom including bath tub and outside shower (with a great view).The master bedroom has a high quality teak wood floor; the other bedrooms white terrazzo floors; and the living room/dining room polished beige sandstone. Entrances to the living room, master bedroom, and front bedroom by the pool are through Balinese doors. All the rooms are individually air-conditioned and come equipped with window/door screens and fans if you don’t want air conditioning at night. There is the latest stereo equipment; state of the art computer set up, and top of the line cable TV system. Also there is an excellent live in cook and a cleaning woman who comes daily.

In front of and to the right of the building containing the study room and master bedroom and adjacent to the swimming pool, is a Balinese Sala (pavilion) with panoramic views of the Andaman sea, the rocky shoreline in front of our villa, and our villa’s swimming pool and front garden. The sala, which is constructed on the rocks, can seat 6 people comfortably and is used for lunches, sundowner cocktails, and general relaxing.

Another unique item is a large flat rock in front of our villa from which swimming in the sea will be possible during the calm season (Dec-May).

The developer, next to The Boathouse on Kata Beach proper, has constructed a club for villa owners which includes a new seafood bar/restaurant called Gung, changing rooms, and beach chairs/umbrellas so there is direct access to Kata Beach. There is easy access to good restaurants (with good wine cellars) at The Boathouse, Gung, and others on Kata Beach, all of which are within easy walking distance from the villa. Patong Beach, the center of night life in Phuket, is 20 minutes away by car.

The villa is available for rental throughout the year.
Rates are available on request.
A one-week minimum rental is required. 30% of the rental (non-refundable) is payable upon booking and 70% three weeks before occupation.

The price includes the services of a live in cook and a live in maid. All food is Thai except at breakfast when basic western breakfast is served in addition to Thai, Chinese etc.. Guests choose what they want to eat from a Thai cook book in consultation with the cook. They then advance funds to the cook to go out and buy food/drinks (its advisable to buy liquor/wine at duty free). Local produce is good, fresh and cheap. He then comes back and cooks. Laundry is done by the maid at no charge.
Golf Orient can arrange for either a car and driver, or a self-drive vehicle, if this is required.
Golf Orient can make all your golf bookings for you at all of Phuket’s six golf courses, including tee booking, green fee, and transportation.
