Best vacation ever!
Me, my wife and our little son of 2.5, stayed in the Glasshouse for 4 weeks over xmas and New Year 2011/2012. We are from Sweden and was looking for a change from the cold and hard winter season in Scandinavia.
The location is a little bit off from the regular tourist areas, which is great! Compared to Patong and Karon beach, which are packed with tourists, the two beaches next to the house are virtually empty. The beaches are 100 and 200 meters away from the house, so very easy access. I preferred the one furthest away, it was less debris and very beautiful.
The house is fantastic and the view amazing. The pictures are true and give a good view of the place and its surroundings. There are some close by restaurants if you do not want to go into Phuket city for dinner. The best choice, we found, was to order from a local restaurant, they delivered within 30 min to the door.
The owner has a property manager, khun Pond, who, together with her team, gives a first class service. She can answer most of the enquiries and is also very helpful in whatever you need. If there for some reason is a problem they fix it immediately. Top class!
We also asked for cooking service on xmas eve and New Years eve, arrange by the property manager, which was over and beyond normal quality. Khun Pond also arranged for a masseuse to visit at regular intervals, very nice and relaxing.
We had a rental car, so it was very easy to access all things needed. I would recommend a rental, but there is also high availability of taxi service in Phuket.
All in all we were looking for a luxury vacation and that is what we found. I strongly recommend this property to anyone seeking this type of vacation spot.
I have already tried to book it again for next xmas, but unfortunately it is already booked by someone with the same opinion of the place as me.
Thanks Bradley, khun Pond, khun JoJo and the rest of the team for giving us a remarkably relaxing and good time in Phuket!
Andreas, Anna and little Leo!

In the beginning of October 2011 we visited Phuket and stayed for twelve days in Glasshouse villa located in Panwa cape area. Let me start with a process of booking. Although booking can be made online, the payment has to be carried out manually via bank wire. 50% of rent is supposed to be wired at the time of booking and 50% one month prior to arrival. There is also a security deposit taken in cash upon arrival. You would also have a 6000 THB allowance on the electricity. During our twelve-day stay we used twice as much. So it would be a good idea to have some local currency handy when you are checking out to pay the difference. Speaking of electricity, all power points in the house are universal so you dont have to think about any adapters, just go ahead and plug your gadgets in. :-) Speaking of what is included supplies-wise: all bed linen, bathroom and beach towels etc are included and they change them every 3-4 days. All disposables like toilet paper, paper towels and detergents for kitchen and laundry, soap etc are on you. Housekeeping is happening every morning. Location. The villa is located in a quiet area on the southern tip of the island, the Panwa cape. The villa is situated uphill cr 30 meters above the sea level so there is no direct access to the beaches. There are two beaches within walking distance from the villa. We stayed there at the very end of the wet season and the closest beach Khao Khard was unusable all muddy and covered with garbage washed down by rains and washed up by sea tides. The other beach Ao-Yon is five minutes lazy walk down the road. This one is very clean and well-protected from the waves. It is also a small marina with couple of dozen boats anchored and there is a pearl farm in there. This beach we were using during our stay and would never regret it. There are white plastic beach beds available on that beach free of charge. A few words about the villa itself. What you see on the pictures online is actually what you get. It is big. :-) And it is all glass and marble. Three good-size bedrooms with possibility to accommodate an extra single bed for a child if need be in two of them. Fourth bedroom is with two singles and is quite small. It also shares a shower and toilet facilities with one of the bigger bedrooms. I have to say this one was quite noisy because of air-conditioning compressors sitting just outside. So I would not count on this one as on a full-featured bedroom, maximum it is good for is to be a kids room. All bedrooms are equipped with en-suite bathrooms, wardrobes, flat-screen TVs. We would only use one large TV downstairs in the living area though. All but one bedrooms are on the upper floor. One bedroom is on the lower level and has a direct access to the swimming pool. Kitchen, dining area and living area are all on the lower level with direct access to the swimming pool and a garden from the living area, which is very convenient. All furniture is very solid. made of wood and may be quite heavy to move around. Although we didnt have a need for that. :-) Kitchen is well-equipped with most of the essential appliances available and also silver, plates, cups, pods etc. The only big thing missing is a dishwasher. Kitchen sink is quite a monstrous thing and very uncomfortable to use. You basically get wet from waist to toes any time you decide to wash your dishes. It should IMO be replaced with a modern one and a dishwasher. There is also an external kitchenette at the back of main kitchen for cooking outdoors and a mobile BBQ place with LP-gas near the swimming pool. Swimming pool area is nice and spacious with a cozy pavilion by the pool. The pool itself is equipped with jacuzzi. Views from the upper and lower levels and the pool area are across the Chalong bay and quite magnificent, especially on sunsets. The villa is surrounded by a nice and well-groomed garden with walking paths and stairs around the house. There is an internal parking space by the gate for two cars. Loundry is in the basement together with yet another double bedroom and some core facilities like water pumps, main circuit breakers etc. Air-conditioning is something worth beware of in this villa. Even with a mild +32C outside, the master-bedroom air-conditioner started to leak after a while. It may be worse during the hot season so the best way to operate them is to try and lower an internal temperature by one C degree at a time. Say if you have 29C in you master bedroom, set the thing to 28C and wait until it goes down to that reading, then go for 26C etc. Dont go straight for 23C when it is 29C in the room, the compressor will die on you. Happened twice to us. To their respect the maintenance team is quick to fix the breaks and usually very friendly. We didnt have any problems with them. Local taxi master Khun Bao and his family deserve a bunch of special words. This guy and his family live just 50 meters down the drive-way. He is the one who would meet you at the airport on arrival and see you off on your departure. He is also a sort of dedicated taxi drive for villa customers. This was very handy for us since we decided not to rent a car and the villa is quite remote from any sort of entertainment spots. So we would give Khun Bao a call about two hours in advance and hed drive us wherever we wanted to go. Hed also wait for us there and drive us back home if we had such plans. He also has a large mini-van for 10 people so it was very convenient to use his service when we were to go out all together. He would also charge us less that regular taxi prices which was nice. Last but not least, both himself and his family are very friendly folks and we are very thankful for all their help. To conclude, I am not going to waste your time describing pros and cons of having holidays on Phuket, they are mostly pros. :-) We enjoyed sun and warm sea, local cosine, getting to know a bit of a Thai culture, scuba diving and riding speed boats. And since it also was a family and friends gathering, we enjoyed staying at the Glasshouse which definitely added an extra quality to our holidays.

Absolutely awesome! There is so much more that can be said but not much more that needs to be said than that. For two months our family enjoyed the breathtaking views and wonderful Thai hospitality that the Glasshouse afforded us. It was a home away from home in a world that we grew to love. Comfortable, private and beautiful. The only problem I have recommending it, is that it might make it more difficult for us to enjoy it again! Thanks for the memories

we are a group of 5 persons and we wanted a bedroom for each, hence the choice of the villa. Indeed it has 4 wonderful bedrooms : one master bedroom with private bathroom and terrasse, one 2nd bedroom with private terrasse, one 3rd bedroom more common which shares a bathroom with the 2nd bedroom, and a 4th bedroom on the ground floor with direct access to the swiming pool. The 5th bedroom is on the basement with private bathroom and private entry. There are TV on 3 of the bedrooms but with dvd only (no tv channels). The TV on the living room has access to satellite tv. A maid cleaned the house every day. And the manager, Mrs Khun Pond, can be joined by mobile phone very easily for any problems. The basement is very very huge ! With a washing machine and a drying machine. The pool is 1.5m deep (same level) with a mini jacuzzi, the sala where we had most of our lunch and dinner is equipped with a music system. Great for relaxing/BBQ around the pool ! From the villa the view is great. On the top of a hill and giving to the west, we have a view to Chalong Bay, and marvelous sunsets. The villa has a quick access to the beach (5mn walk) : sand beach but quite dirty (with cans and bottle necks, from Chalong Bay, certainly !), on the left side of the beach : rocks with crabs and small fishes. There are several restaurants at 15 to 30 mn walk from the villa. But we prefer to cook our meals ourselves. While visiting Phuket Town or Patong we also went to supermarket (Big C, Tesco Lotus) The villa is quite secluded (dont even think of walking to the nearest shop ! 1 hour walk minimum, composed by hills with slopes at 30%). The taxi service just below the villa is quite expensive. So I would advice for another taxi service : Mr Prasat is THE man to contact - very kind, very professional, knowing perfectly the area [he has a guide license], and has reasonable price. (he has his own website : www.Phuket-Taxi-Meter.com) In overall I highly recommend this villa : beautiful villa (the photos are not "photoshoped". No need !) well equipped, wonderful view.

We spend a week at the Glass House and I believe there is no other way to describe the house than absolutely perfect. The house itself, the interior, the surroundings, the beach and the great beach restaurants nearby, the pool, you name it. I actually planned to do some sightseeing and perhaps check out a couple of real estate agents, but ended up spending almost all of my time at the house. Highly recommended for those who really want to take a step back from the rat-race and just simply want to experience what life is all about.

Just said goodbye to the Glasshouse after a fabulous stay. The house itself was magnificent - spacious, airy, beautifully light and elegantly furnished. Its a great space to share with friends or family. The real star of the show was the view from almost everywhere in the house over the pool through the palm trees and across Chalong Bay. Its breath-taking day and night. A big thank you to Khun Pond and her team for looking after the place and us so kindly and efficiently. This was our first visit to Phuket and we loved it, especially the sunset at Prom Tiep, the amazing Big Buddha, the bustle of Phuket old town (with some great restaurants) and driving home back to the calm lushness of Cape Panwa. We loved the local market which is less than 10 minutes drive from the house and the fact that our biggest decision was whether to cook in the internal kitchen, the Thai kitchen at the back or on the huge barbecue by the pool.... Altogether - a treat!

The glasshouse is a beautiful villa in a stunning setting. It's spacious and light inside, surrounded by well maintained grounds full of floral interest year round. It also has a comprehensive entertainment system that delivers music to virtually any part of the house and poolside gazebo. We especially enjoyed sipping cocktails in the infinity pool while watching the sun set over the horizon.The villa is a short walk down to either of two beaches, both fairly quiet though with a number of beach-side restaurants and bars to choose from. A number of interesting activities are within easy reach, including yachting at the other side of the harbor and shopping at Central. It's just as you imagine paradise to be like, and we enjoyed every minute of our two week stay. Highly recommended.

The villa is fantastic offering resort style luxury while providing the comfort and privacy of being in your own home away from home. The sweeping views over Chalong Bay and to the giant Buddha in the west are stunning. While the beaches, markets and other shopping are easy to get to I was more than content floating around the Infinity pool soaking up the tropical surrounds. The Glasshouse was great value for money and exceeded expectations and I have been busy recommending it to friends.

Best place in Phuket- This is a very nice villa with comfortable 4 big rooms. The layout is simply spacious and welcoming, it leads you to the swimming pool and the sun set view straight from the front entrance. The room on the ground floor has the best view to the nature. The kitchen is new and well equipped with essentials. The location is convenience to all shoppings, restaurants and entertainments. Highly recommended to anyone.
