Villa overview - owner's description

Stunning, tranquil and secluded villa with large private pool. Very relaxing location with beautiful views. Blessed with cool breezes blowing across the pineapple plantation all year round.

The REAL Thailand can be found in this tranquil area just 20 mins from Hua Hin town. Blessed with cool breezes blowing across the pineapple plantation all year round this 2-bedroom villa has plenty of inside and outside space for everyone.

The 2nd bedroom although adjoined, is accessed from its own door and does not have direct access through the villa to the main lounge. Located on a 12 plot development it is typically Thai on the exterior but with every modern convenience on the interior. A large airy lounge and open plan kitchen features a cooking hob, microwave oven, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The lounge has a Playstation (1), large flat screen TV, DVD player and home cinema system. (There is no terrestrial Thai TV, or satellite). There is a connector for iPod to play music through the theatre system. You have a free WiFi connection throughout the villa. (There are no electrical sockets next to the pool, for obvious reasons).
You are literally a 5 minute drive from the local beach, small shops and market.

A large private pool with outdoor grill is central to the villa accessible from all rooms and lounge directly with a large dining table and benches. Poolside furniture includes a day bed and chairs with table for outdoor enjoyment. (No sun loungers).

Here you can relax, take in the calm and quiet surroundings of rural Thailand, with the bustle of Hua Hin town just a 20 minute drive away.

It is recommended that guests either hire a driver, car or mopeds to get you to the local attractions and supermarket as there is currently no grocery on site. Mopeds are cheap and available just a 5 minute drive away at the local beach bar.

(It is advised that on the way to the villa, you stop by the supermarket to stock up on basic supplies as the villa does not provide any groceries. If you wish to have a pack of basic supplies, this can be arranged upon request. Housekeeping service is included during your stay.)

This was our third trip to Palm Villa, we live in Thailand and we love going back this villa because it's a place we can really unwind and relax. We love the view and the surroundings and it's very peaceful. Having a kitchen, a BBQ, and a decent sized living area make it a great place for our family to have a break.

You do need a car here to get around, bring your own or hire one. But once you are here it is a great spot, about 10-15 minute drive from decent beaches and in the other direction the town/big grocery stores. Hua Hin is nearby for water parks and more entertainment and it's a lovely part of Thailand.

The positives:
The property is in a beautiful quiet location along a small hotel / resort.
the property is very remote so if you want to get out and about a car is a must, if not the staff can arrange taxi or car without issue for trips to the supermarket or into Hua Hin.
This is "A Robinson Crusoe" place to be where life and the surroundings are nice and simple. Plenty of place to walk to get out and about if you want to enjoy the country side

supermarket about 15 min away by car, Hua Hin about 30 min. The staff where friendly and helpful when approached, but communication in English can be a challenge.

The Negatives:

the main issue we had was that the pool was never cleaned or maintained, this came to a head two days from the end of our stay when the pool became a green pond that we felt was not safe to swim in due to the colour as well the insect community that had developed in the pool which was very disappointing end to an other wise great stay.

General cleaning could be better with spider webs through out the house, fish blood and smells in the fridge which took several days for us to remove which made everything we put into the fridge a little fishy so to speak, also they have a iron, but broken so why have it ?

Also if the information folder was better displayed would have helped with local attractions and thngs to do, but this was buried away only to be found when we checked the property on our exit

Summary:

In summary the place is a great property to go and stay at if you want some quiet time, we certainly would return, but they just need to look at the small things and ensure that the services fit the quality and style of the property.

Good afternoon Wayne, Apologies for my delay in responding but I wanted to contact the management company we use to maintain the villa to see what on earth happened.
They insist that the villa and fridge were clean and as of last year we now pay them to clean daily regardless of whether guests are staying or not - this seems not to be the case, so we are following up and wanting to know why this is. As you point out, we have spent a lot of time, money and effort in getting this villa to where w want it as an owner. Sadly, we are not there to be on top of the smaller things and some things that we constantly ask to be done but never are.The pool is a major point for us and we are insisting, again, that regardless of guests in the villa or not, it must be cleaned every day. Sometimes they do not like to disturb guests, but we insist that they must ask and enter when convenient, and clean it every day to keep the water in tip top condition.
Again, we apologies for the smaller things that may have impacted on your stay. We are aware of some of the issues and are dealing with them on a regular basis to make sure the villa stays how we left it and how we want guests to find it. Thank you

What a fantastic villa shame its a bit rough around the edges. First impression is great, beautiful topical garden surrounding a great size pool, about five foot deep all over. All external doors open up directly to the swimming pool area with amazing views over the plantation towards the mountains in the distance. What this place offers is peace and quiet great for relaxing by the pool. You will need transport while you stay here as Hua Hin is a good twenty to thirty minutes by car from the villa. There was dust in certain areas plus it would be so much better if there was some effort in cleaning the bath room sinks and shower cubical before guests arrive. Two things to consider are that the bedroom door just off the kitchen has a lock which there is no key for, so take care especially if you have small children who will lock it for you. Good tip while you are at the villa leave the bedroom patio door open, so you can still get in. The other thing is the second bedroom is not accessible via the rest of the house, but only by its own door. That said everything works well especially the washing machine....very handy.
I would recommend this place 100% to anyone who wants to get away from it all, fantastic value!!!!

We are a family of five and recently enjoyed an 11 day stay at the Palm Villa. We would highly recommend it for a family with slightly older kids - ours are age 6, 12 and 14. We loved the layout of the villa and pool and spent quite a few days just content to chill out and enjoy relaxing at the villa. We liked the way the villa was decorated and furnished in a contemporary style. We found it to be comfortable and cool and had everything we needed. The beds are comfortable - which is saying a lot in Thailand! The villa has a good sized, modern kitchen, with fridge-freezer and equipment to make simple meals. The outdoor seating area was great, with a long table and a great big sofa/day bed that you could lie on, plus outside armchairs. There is a barbecue there in the garden and we enjoyed using that (you can get charcoal at a small shop on the way to Pranburi). There was also one sun lounger there during our stay. Our kids loved the pool, they spent hours and hours in it and it was a great size for them to play in. Families with young kids might want to know that there is no shallow end to the pool - it is the same depth throughout apart from the steps leading in, which was about shoulder depth on me (an average sized woman). It was too deep for our 6 year old to stand up in, but she is a very good swimmer, so it really was ideal for us because the kids were able to jump in all around the pool and get a decent swim across. We live in Thailand, so we took our car with us. I would say it is essential to have a vehicle to stay at Palm Villa - unless it is a short stay and you dont mind just being at the villa. The villa is in a wonderful peaceful setting and is an easy 10 minute drive to supermarkets (Pranburi has a Tesco Lotus and Makro) and to several beaches. It is also only a 20-25 minute drive to Hua Hin and the waterparks and shopping mall there. We had a great holiday and would highly recommend it.

Place had not been used for a while and this showed in appliances and dust. There was a problem with check in, half the house didnt have electricity, the water wasnt working and one air on didnt work. An hour to fix all this, but it was fixed! Water stopped working a few times and hard to find help but was quickly fixed when we did. Pool wasnt cleaned as often as we would have liked. Had to use the shower in the guest room as shower head sprayed everywhere but on you.

even with the problems it was a great place for us. Just one clean in ten days would have been nice. Directions were hard to follow for self drive.

having said all this, we had a great time, exactly what we wanted private pool, nice apartment, secluded location. Would stay again! Very kind towards late checkout, much appreciated!

Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour dans cette magnifique villa! Le cadre est superbe, le calme est au rendez-vous et on ne peut donc que sy détendre. Les photos correspondent parfaitement à la réalité.
Quant à la villa en elle-même, elle présente tout le confort nécessaire dans un style et une décoration de très bon goût. Nous nous y sommes vraiment sentis très bien et ça correspondait tout à fait au style de vacances quon recherchait. Équipés dune mobylette (un moyen de transport est vraiment nécessaire car la villa est assez éloignée de restaurants ou autres activités), la villa était un beau point de départ pour nos expéditions quotidiennes.
Nous avons connu un problème avec la piscine qui nétait pas opérationnelle à notre arrivée, en raison de pluies passées. Cest notre seul point négatif mais la communication avec la propriétaire a été excellente et tout à été mis en œuvre pour accélérer la résolution du problème. On nous a même proposé une solution temporaire en attendant que ce soit résolu, ce qui est appréciable.
Pour le reste, un mot : super!
Nous recommandons bien entendu cette villa si vous recherchez un séjour au calme, dans un magnifique cadre mais que vous êtes conscients que vous devez avoir un moyen de transport pour vos visites ou restaurants.
