Stunning lakeside colonial style residence set within the renowned Palm Hill Golf and Country Club.
Stunning lake-side colonial style residence set within the renowned Palm Hills Golf Course. Dubbed "The White House" by local residents due to its unintentional resemblance to the real one, the property consists of a spacious well-appointed main house comprising 6 double bedroom suites, grand entrance hall, formal and informal living areas, kitchen, study and a separate staff cottage and laundry. Large 18 x 8 meter saltwater infinity pool overlooking the lake and surrounding hills. Beautiful enclosed garden with an abundance of tropical flowers, fruit and palm trees. Large garden pavilion for al fresco dining. Lovely quiet setting yet only a short distance to the beach and the newly-opened Venezia shopping and entertainment complex complete with canals, gondoliers and its own St. Mark's square.
Hua Hin, located just a couple of hours drive south of Bangkok, is known as Thailand´s Royal Beach Resort. It was the very first popular beach resort in the country. Tourism began here shortly after the director of state railway, Prince Purachatra, built the Railway Hotel in 1921. King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) decided he liked it so much that he built a lavish summer palace here. The palace known as Wang Klai Kung Wan (which translate into "Far from worries Palace" in English), was the full time residence of the current King Bhumijol Adulyadej until 2006 when health issues required him to return to Bangkok.
Home to a 5 km long white sandy beach, the modest tourist industry attracts around 1 million visitors each year (Thai`s and Foreigners) and is extremely popular with couples, families, golfers and groups of travellers wanting to take a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of other busier hotspots in the country.
When we arrived at the property we were blown away by the "wow" factor. The house is a huge, gracious mansion with quality fixtures and furniture. The house was immaculately clean and the large swimming pool overlooking the golf course was sparkling clean. The description of the property on the web site, while impressive, was not as impressive as the property itself. The cleaning staff were very efficient and we were pleasantly surprised to find any dirty washing left on the floor was wisked away, washed and ironed and returned for a very modest fee. Great value. While a this property is a little way of Hua Hin city, the peace and tranquility and the outlook over Palm Hills Golf Course more than compensated for the 10 minute journey into town. Our group was 6 male golfers between 50-60 years of age with our own bus and driver (who was accommodated in the staff quarters). We each had our own bedroom and ensuite. Highly recommended for golf groups like ours. Even better value for couples as the property could accommodate 6 couples comfortably. Overall I would rate this property 5 star and highly recommend it. While not a criticism, I would recommend that outdoor chairs be supplied around the table under the outdoor gazebo as it would be a lovely spot to sit and relax.
Beside the problems with internet conection, and no english-spoken TV-channels, this property was just EXCELLENT.
If we would be as many as 8 or more persons next time, I will defenetly rent this house again.

We have just returned from Thailand where we hired out the villa for a week, for family and some friends following our oldest daughters wedding in Pranburi. The villa is finished to an excellent standard and the pictures do not do it justice, as it is better in real life. We had a full party of 12 and due to the size of the property none of us ever felt cramped. The location is fantastic for a relaxing holiday as it over looks the 8th tee of a very nice golf course. We managed to fit a couple of rounds of golf in and the green fees are reduced for residences of the properties. The caretaker of the property was excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble for her. All the party had a fantastic time and I would gladly recommend it to anyone. I would however like to make a couple of recommendations which may help future occupants. Firstly that a map of the golf course showing the properties is attached, as it was difficult to locate when first arriving and secondly, that a further 4 sun loungers are provided so that there is enough for all 12 occupants.

This property is excellent. It is finished to a very high standard, especially for Thailand, and the location is perfect. It is situated on a very pretty section of the golf course, and has beautiful relaxing views on both sides. Everything you need is provided and the hand over went extremly well. The directions could do with updating, as there is no mention of 6a anywhere in the direction list, and this was confusing, and here is also another house being built next door, so it is now number 3 on the left. The construction could have been a pain, as it went on all day, but the views and the peacefulness of the surroundings made up for it, and besides, they have to keep building. This is a very special place, and I am very glad to have spent our christmas here. Many thanks to the owner.

The property was of a very high standard, it is a wonderful place to spend time on vacation. The actual house was better in real life than had been advertised (and theres not many times you can say that!) I had a fairly large party staying with me and due to size of the place we never felt cramped. When there was problem with the house the care taker got it fixed striaght away with out question. All my party had a fabulous time there and I would recommend it to anyone, I just hope I my schedule allows me to spend time there again.

From the house you can walk straigth onto the golf course. The property was completed in January 2008 and the garden has matured well. The pool is cleaned regularly and the garden tended to by Palm Hill service organisation.
