Property description

If you are ready to visit amazing Phuket, our home may be just right for you!

Villa Sawan (“Heaven” in Thai) is just one long block from spectacular Karon Beach. An intimate, private home, it is perfect for those who want romantic privacy, but also desire easy access to the beach, dining, shopping and night-life. Our two bedroom, three bath home is a true tropical delight.

A large living and dining area open up to a lovely deck and private pool. Across the u-shaped deck in a separate building, are two spacious bedrooms, each with an individual entrance, king beds and private bathrooms. Both bedrooms are very quiet and have full-length black-out drapes for complete privacy.

All rooms in the villa have floor-to-ceiling glass walls facing the deck and pool that open completely, creating an open-air atmosphere. The master bath has a two-person Jacuzzi tub with sliding full size windows that open on to the pool. The deck and pool area have a separate full bath with a breathtaking granite shower.

The furnishings are traditional Thai using native materials from throughout the country. The villa is located at the base of a mountainous jungle area. It provides a lush, secluded environment, but is a mere two minute walk to any vacation amenity you may crave.

This part of Karon Beach is older and still retains many charming, Thai-owned establishments. Fabulous restaraunts, fun open-air bars, traditional Thai massage, salons, food carts and markets are all at the bottom of our Soi. If you want an evening of racous, over-the-top nightlife, Patong Beach is a quick ten minute tuk tuk ride over the hill.

The house is managed by dear friends who have an amazing restaurant down the street. They can arrange for most anything you may want; transportation, in-house massage therapy, home delivered meals....it's like having a built-in Thai family!

Location

Phuket is home to many cultural festivals such as the vegitarian festival every October, the Loy Kratong Festival in November and my favorite, the Kings Birthday in December. The Big Buddah and Wat Chalong are easily accessible. Kata Beach, Cape Proem Thep, Laem Sing Beach, Crow Beach, Elephant rides, go carts, bungee jumping, shooting range and more, are all five to 30 minutes from Villa Sawan.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are four friends who love Thailand and realized our longtime dream when we purchased Villa Sawan. Traveling to Phuket together since 2000, we have shared amazing experiences and wonderful times on this island, in particular, this small part of Karon Beach. Our Thai family, the Sounmoungs, have made it possible to have a home here, and to share it with you. We know you will love Thailand and the wonderful Thai people and culture as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Karon Beach:
Karon Beach is arguably the most beautiful beach in the world. We are one, long block from this spectacular beach where the amazing Andaman Ocean is waiting to soothe ones spirit. We made great friends in this charming, older area of Phuket, and fell in love with it. We enjoy the small Thai-owned businesses here, rather than the large-scale newer development further up the coast. Karon allows one to experience a little bit of Thai culture, and true Thai hospitality. Although our home is new, it blends in to the jungle and community beautifully, without compromising the original charm of our little soi.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Karon Beach is the perfect blend of solitude and action. The house is amazingly private and quite. You feel as if you are a thousand miles away while inside this sanctuary of luxury. Down the soi to the main street you have dining, shopping and massage at your fingertips. Fun horseshoue bars, music, pool and of course, karaoke, are all on the block. At the end of the block is the amazing beach. All these things and more are a short walk from our beautiful home. Not the overcrowded hustle and bustle of Patong Beach, nor the over-quite and overly retiring atmosphere of an all-inclusive resort. You are truly living in Phuket at Villa Sawan.
