Villa overview - owner's description

The perfect secluded setting for a relaxed and private experience with family or friends. Nestled into the jungle and set in an area of 1,140sqm, this modern house provides some of the best sea-views available in Phuket. Located on a small peninsula, the villa is just a few minutes walk from two beautiful beaches; Ao Yon (east-facing) and Khao Khad (west-facing). Both beaches are in sheltered bays making them perfect for swimming all year round.

There is only one Glasshouse Phuket and we have 6 bedrooms. There are 2 listings on this site for our villa:

6 Bedroom option (this listing):
We can accommodate up to 20 guests (maximum 18 adults) using all of our 6 bedrooms.

4 Bedroom option:
We rent the villa to groups of up to 8 guests using only 4 bedrooms.

Children up to 2 years are welcome and don't count towards the maximum.

Guests always have exclusive and private use of all our facilities which includes the large open plan living space, a private swimming pool, garden, en-suite bathrooms for all bedrooms, guest WC, outside shower, Thai and western kitchens, carport and terrace.

We can arrange whatever additional services you need to make your stay as indulgent as you'd like such as a chef to prepare your meals, maids to clean the villa, in-house massage, nanny/babysitter etc.

The private and romantic setting with stunning views across the bay makes it a perfect location for a special event. We've hosted a number of weddings and other events at the Glasshouse and can help with any special arrangements.

The exterior of this architect-designed home is set among landscaped gardens with a 10m infinity pool with jacuzzi as the centrepiece. A Thai style sala is the perfect place to shelter from the sun or enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets across the bay.

The interior of the home is equipped with high quality locally sourced furniture and fittings that will make your experience a luxurious one. Whilst in touch with the surrounding nature, the house is equipped with high-speed wireless internet throughout, multi-room sound system, 50' TV/home theatre.

Living Area: The spacious open planned living space with panoramic views of Chalong bay spans the entire width of the property and opens directly on to the pool terrace and sala. It includes a dining area, accommodating 16 for formal dining, a TV den with state of the art audio-visual entertainment system and a double-height sitting area. The open design merges with the pool terrace making it ideal for informal, alfresco eating, entertaining or just relaxing. The living space extends upstairs where we have a full-sized table tennis table, an office desk in case you have to work and an outside balcony with a circular day bed. Perfect for meditation, reading or a place for the kids to play.

Stay relaxed, fit & healthy; we have 2 yoga mats and resistance bands and ropes.

An open-planned European style kitchen is fully equipped with a full range of brand-name appliances including Smeg gas range, espresso machine, juice blender, microwave and American size double door fridge-freezer with ice maker/dispenser). An adjacent Thai kitchen with Smeg gas stove complements the interior space. Breakfast bar with marble top provides an additional social hub.

Bedrooms: All 4 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms (one bathroom is shared between the 2nd and garden view bedrooms), generous wardrobe space, hair dryers, international electrical sockets and USB chargers.

We have the following options for sleeping arrangements:

Master bedroom: king size bed (+ king size sofa bed), walk-in closet, TV, balcony with swing
2nd bedroom: king size bed (+ double sofa bed), TV, balcony with lounger
Poolside bedroom: king size bed, double aspect to poolside and grass terrace
Garden view bedroom: 2 x single beds, TV
5th bedroom: king size bed (+ double sofa bed in adjoining private living room with TV)
6th bedroom: king size bed

We also have 3 cots (and 3 high chairs) for infants and, if you need the flexibility, several floor mattresses for kids that can be placed wherever is most convenient for you.

The 5th & 6th bedrooms have separate access and are only suitable for small children if accompanied by adults or older children.

Parking & Security: The Glasshouse has an electric gate and an alarm system. There is a sheltered carport with space for 2 cars inside the gate.

Outdoor Space: The house is set among landscaped tropical gardens connected by stone pathways and dotted with several terraced areas. The 10m infinity pool is the centrepiece and includes a jacuzzi for the ultimate indulgence, day or night. Loungers on the poolside are perfect for soaking up the sun or move to the Thai style sala with its sofas and coffee table for some shade. The sala has speakers wired to the multi-room sound system so that you can enjoy chill-out music by the pool, or perhaps something more lively with cocktails as you watch the sun go down. An outside barbecue provides another option for dining/entertaining. Outside seating includes; 8 poolside loungers, sofa for 6 in the sala, 4 bar stools.

The Cape Panwa area of Phuket is perhaps one of the island's best-kept secrets. The villa is situated on a small peninsula and close to two separate beaches, each just a few minutes walk away. Khao Khad is 1-2 minutes walk from the villa with nearly 1km stretch of beach. It’s undeveloped with just a few beach bars and restaurants. Most guests prefer Ao Yon beach which is 2-3 minutes walk and is also quiet and undeveloped. Both beaches are relatively sheltered and don’t have the high waves and rip tides that the west coast beaches experience.

All the essential amenities you need to make your stay convenient, comfortable and indulgent are just a short walk away. There’s a 7-11 convenience store just 30 metres from the Glasshouse and a Family Mart is about 250 metres away. Both are open 24 hours, have an ATM and a wide range of products including drinks, ice, snacks, confectionery, ice cream, toiletries, and other essentials. They also sell alcohol during permitted hours (11am-2pm, 5pm-midnight).

If you want to explore further afield, it's easy to get around with local taxi vans (can generally accommodate 10-12 passengers)

The nearest outdoor food markets are in Borae, a nearby village. One is open all day and the other, slightly closer and more interesting, is open late afternoon to early evening. These sell fruit, vegetables, fresh fish, meat & cooked food as well as Thai desserts and other local products. The nearest supermarket is about 5 minutes away in Makham Bay.

Phuket attractions that are within 5-10 minutes of the Glasshouse include Phuket Aquarium, Ao Yon waterfall, Khao Khad Tower & Viewpoint, and Tarzan Adventure. Water-based activities such as kayaking, sailing, snorkeling & diving start out from Ao Yon beach.

Phuket's other attractions are scattered across the island and most places you'd want to visit are within a 15-45 minute drive.

The big international style supermarkets in Phuket Central are about 15-20 minutes away. If there’s something very specific that you need, Central Food Hall at Floresta has a world-class range of imported products.

The villa is always offered with exclusive use of the house, pool, and gardens.

To encourage responsible use of aircon, we include an electricity allowance which is sufficient to run the house & pool with moderate use of aircon. Any electricity used over the allowance is charged at cost price +5%.

Just got home to the UK with wonderful memories of the Glasshouse. It was our second visit and it was every bit as good as we’d remembered. The house is so uplifting! The space is enormous and fantastically bright and airy. All the main rooms look out over the beautiful pool from which you look out over the gorgeous bay and palm trees. It’s idyllic! Around the pool there’s are shaded spaces, a barbecue, loungers and a great music system - everything you could want! Kun Pond who’d looked after us so well on our first trip was still there and made sure everything ran really smoothly again. The house still feels so secluded but since our last trip, there are a few more restaurants a gentle stroll from the house which was great, and a 7/11 around the corner for any bits and pieces we needed. Thanks to Bradley for such clear communication in the run up to our stay. We’re looking forward to the next time!

Zhenni Dec 2019

Big and stylish villa , great location near the beach and very quite and great pool to spend the afternoon in. We stayed in the glass house 9 adults , 3 kids and a baby and we had plenty of room for all of us , the view from the villa pool is great and the location is very quite , less than 5 min walk to the beach With shops and restaurants near the villa , suitable for big family highly recommended.

Ben Nov 2019

Bradley and his team have thought about all of the little details to make this an exceptional experience. This included great communication with us, tips for staying in Thailand and resources at the house. AND the house is amazing! Our entire family stayed and we had an exception week that will be hard to top!!! Our sincere thank you for making Thailand special for us!

Yaroslav Oct 2019

Glasshouse it’s great please for family weekends, great view, clean and cozy... near forest, highly recommend this villa. Bradley and his team always on-line for any questions and help.

Wonderful location in Panwa- Fantastic family villa with great infinity pool and awesome views of the sea. The 6 bedrooms was perfect for my the whole family. On-site Manager ensures is everything is taken care of from the moment you arrive. They leave you alone to relax but are just a phone call away if needed. On call driver next door with spacious van to take you anywhere you need to go at very fair prices. We used him to go to Patong, Island tour and to take us to dinner a few times....excellent service. Chef can be booked for the day so you can just chill out with the family. Really enjoyed this option for my 60th birthday party and the food was fantastic!!! Restaurants and bars within walking distance. 7-11 and great massage are located right outside the villa (3 min walk) Other options are just a short drive via the van service. Hand-on owner Bradley was very easy to deal with and the communication from him prior to our arrival was outstanding. We look forward to returning to the Glass House in Beautiful Phuket.

Service and communication perfect. I recommend the services of a chef. I warmly recommend

The Glass House is fantastic for extended family bonding. We were a party of 16 covering 3 generations of an extended family. We had most of our meals in-house prepared by a wonderful chef Khun Nui. Nothing beats the view from the swimming pool and living room. You can see not only the sea but also the Giant Buddha at a distance. The 7 eleven store just a few steps away from the Villa is really a convenient, convenient store “always close but never close”.

I had such a good time here, celebrating an important milestone ; my transition from Season 5 to Season 6. Friends and family came to stay in this gorgeous, spacious and airy villa. I had the master bedroom, which was bigger than my first apartment back home. Every day I woke up and swam in the pool, admiring the stunning view over the bay. The kitchen and dining facilities are excellent, and we cooked on a couple of days, but we were able to book a chef service, which produced three amazing meals, particularly the lunch on the day of my birthday, which was beyond delicious. The villa is quite well situated - away from the road but within easy walking of a pharmacy, massage outlets and restaurants. The local 7-11 is close and open 24 hours. If you want to get to Patpong and the nightlife there, it is quite a long drive, and you need to hire a van, but if you're with a group or family like I was, then the Glasshouse and the local area has everything you need for a wonderful stay.

David May 2019

We didn’t think it was possible, but our return trip to the Glasshouse after 8 years was even better than before! The area has more shops and restaurants within a few minutes walk so you get the best of both worlds now - a secluded oasis to relax and watch the spectacular sunsets from the pool and interesting places to explore when you go out. All the attention to detail - from the check-in to recommendations for food, local markets to explore, and excursions around the island - made the entire trip feel very personalised for our special birthday celebration. We even had a private chef for a couple of nights who cooked in the outdoor kitchen and made some delicious local Thai dishes that we are still savouring! We were there during the low season, so expect a few tropical thunderstorms (a welcome relief from the heat and humidity). You’ll still get gorgeous weather most of the time. And no matter what time of year you go the Glasshouse is a great value with 6 en suite rooms (get ready to fight for the master BR!) and a private beach to walk along. The Glasshouse is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the touristy and tacky parts of the island. Best in Phuket!

Kunal May 2019

The villa is located on Panwa Cape with lush rainforest / jungle in the back, a stunning view of the bay and eastern coastline of Phuket with the crown jewel being a view of the Big Bhudda statue. It is walking distance away from two separate beaches - Ao Yon (east) and Khao Khad (west). We spent a lot of time on Khao Khad, taking morning walks, though there is little room to walk on the beach during high tide. Personally, it made the walk more fun. There are massage parlors, restaurants, scooter rentals, cafes and even a 7-11 within walking distance. The only negative would be if you are interested in Patong Beach area or Phuket Town there is a drive associated with either location. Patong Beach being 30-40 minutes away and Phuket Town being 20-30 minutes away. The area of the villa is quiet and gives a very laid back feel to it. Our experience with the villa started when we booked the villa. Bradley, the owner of the villa, was extremely helpfully in figuring out the ins and outs of the area as well as working with the manager and chef in Phuket. We were a party of 15 people (10 Adults and 5 Teenagers) and were going to stay at the villa for 7 nights. We had arranged a rental bus (Toyota Commuter) to ferry us around for the week. There was ample parking space for it in the villa. We arrived quite early at the villa and had been given permission to check-in early by Bradley. The villa is gorgeously decorated. Each room is stunning in it’s own right and taken together is amazing. The piece de resistance however is the patio and pool area which gave the stunning views mentioned above. We ended up spending a lot of time there. The teenagers enjoyed having their own room, wifi, the ping-pong table upstairs and of course the pool. They ended up using the gazebo more than the adults in the party as the speakers were on Apple Play. We had arranged for the first days two meals to be created by the chef. We loved his preparations of Italian food we had for lunch and of course the Thai food for dinner was spectacular especially considering our whole party was vegetarian. The only reason we didn’t repeat the chef was that we planned to be out and about in the evenings. Really, all you can say about the Glasshouse in Phuket is Absolutely Amazing. From the service by Bradley (the owner) to the manager (Khun Pond) to the chef they provided, to the villa itself - it was in the lap of luxury.

If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Phuket that is great for spending time with family or friends look no further. The Villa itself is stunning, great views in a superb setting. From the Villa there is a perfect view of the "Big Budda" on the mountain top from the poolside. The Villa is a home away from home with everything you need. All staff went above and beyond to assure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. Let's start with Khun Pond, the house manager. She is seriously one of the sweetest women you would ever meet. Very polite, professional and solution minded although we really didnt encounter any issues whatsoever. Khun Man the driver is the absolute best, very professional, punctual, great personality. The price for transportation for our party of 9 was reasonable. For one flat rate for the day you can do a tour on a budget which works out to be more budget friendly than paying a tour company. His recommendations were great being that we didnt know much about Phuket. He was also a safe driver which is important. We also opt to book with the tour company next to 7 Eleven with Mr. Bao who offered great rates with reputable tour companies for activities much further away from the Villa. The Chef referred by Mr. Bradley was excellent, the food was amazing and worth every penny. If you have a large party its worth hiring the Chef, he will do all the shopping, food prep, set up and clean up. I could go on and on of how amazing our overall experience was, but you have to experience it for yourself, but I tell you one thing, you will not regret it. We look forward to visiting again soon. Thank you Bradley his staff for providing excellent service to the max. Till we meet again. Happy Customers

Bill Apr 2019

The property was amazing and lived up to the description in every way. The chef, Nui, we hired through Bradley was fantastic and produced the BEST Thai food any of us have ever tasted. It was such a bonus not to worry about shopping, cooking and washing up. Bradley was easy to communicate with right from the very beginning, he was very prompt in replying and helpful in providing information. The villa manager was also extremely responsive to any request or query we had. It all made for being a fantastic holiday and it exceeded our expectations for a family reunion.

Ritchie Apr 2019

We were a group of 3 families with 5 kids aged 1-4 and we had a fantastic time at The Glasshouse. Everything from the airport pick-up onwards was super easy and highly enjoyable. The house itself with its fantastic pool is modern, high-tech, clean, spacious, and well kitted out with everything you'll need and then some, e.g. we set the kids up with Netflix in the living room whilst the adults had a table tennis tournament upstairs. In the late afternoons with the sun setting across the bay it really was superb and we ate dinner on the terrace most nights. The location is fantastic, away from the hordes on the bigger beaches of Phuket, but with a choice of East or West facing beaches (replete with beach bars and restaurants) just a couple of minutes walk from the door. There are numerous tour agents and taxis around and the villa management also did a great job helping us plan what few trips out we did take. A supermarket is literally next door and there are plenty of restaurants nearby too. I would heartily recommend booking the chefs for the day. We ate like kings and they were wonderful, even bringing us in fresh fruit supplies for the following days. We would have liked to have had them back again but they were (unsurprisingly) already booked elsewhere unfortunately.

Melissa Mar 2019

Our experience was AMAZING!!!!! The house was beautiful in pictures and even more beautiful in person. We had a group of 14 ladies and we all slept comforably in the villa. The owner did a very good job informing us of all the amenities they offer. We utilized the Chef who was super accommodating and the food was GREAT!!! The taxi service was readily available, just be sure to call 1-2hrs in advance, Khun Pond (villa manager) and the owner Bradley communicated very well with us prior to our arrival. Prior to our arrival we arranged massages at the villa and the ladies came with 5-6 Masseuses which was perfect for our large group. The air conditioning was not an issue, we did go over a tad bit but as long as the doors are open then be sure to turn the air conditioning off. The pool area has its own speakers and lights inside the pool for night swim and there are two grills on the patio. 7/11 is directly behind the house and their is an ATM and money exchange right behind the house. I would advise you not to exchange your money in China (if this is your layover) at all, as there are NO FEES to exchange over in Thailand.

Begona Feb 2019

Our stay at Glasshouse Phuket was a wonderful experience. The property is very elegant and comfortable, located in a beautiful part of the island away from the noise of Patong and other touristy places, with a unique local vibe. The villa is itself very private and offers lush views of the bay below, especially beautiful during sunset. The owner was very friendly and attentive, replied fast and offered plenty on tips regarding local restaurants, activities and tours. Highly recommended!

Liz Dec 2018

Very well equipped and excellent internal decoration, very comfortable and spacious property. Near two supermarkets and lots of lovely local restaurants and two lovely beaches (away from any noise). Taxi driver available for any further journeys. Pool was good size and refreshing after a relaxing day at th beach. We were certainly use the property again when we visit Thailand.

I'm originally from the U.K. and now based in Thailand. I've been renting out the Glasshouse for 10 years now and it gives me enormous pleasure to be able to share it with appreciative guests from all over the globe.

Many of our guests visit for family gatherings, joint holidays with friends and families and it's always extra special when someone chooses the Glasshouse for their anniversary, birthday or even their wedding trip. I like to make myself available from the first inquiry onwards to offer local advice, arrange any special services that guests may want to book and ensure that all runs smoothly for the duration of the stay.

We have a wonderful team based in Phuket who take pride in making our guests feel welcome and it's truly service with a Thai smile.
