If this villa is booked for the time you want, please enquire, because I also let other villas close by, for friends. This is also useful if you have a very large group and want 2 or 3 villas close together. As we are often heavily booked, don't hesitate to ask if your dates do not quite fit our availability.

About the owner: My name is Jacquie Pinnell, and my brother Richard is the owner of Villa Sanyanga, and the Yacht Shangani. He is a Captain with Cathay Pacific Airways, based in Hong Kong. I let the villa on his behalf. We were brought up in England and Zimbabwe, and now he lives in Asia, and I live in Spain and France. With skype and emails we work closely together, and with Lily our Villa manager, and are in constant contact with the letting of the villa and chartering the yacht Shangani.
Why the Owner Chose Surin Beach: Richard lives in Phuket with his wife and sons, and lived in Villa Sanyanga for several years, before moving to the East coast, closer to the boys' school and to the marina where the yacht Shangani is moored.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The most fabulous thing about this villa, in my opinion, is the breath-taking view from the pool terrace, over the whole of Bangtao bay. But what makes it wonderful for holiday rentals is that it can take very large groups. Perhaps a family reunion for extended families spread out over many countries, or a group of friends celebrating a birthday. There is so much space and privacy in this beautiful villa. For instance, the garden level area alone can sleep 7 people, with lots of space, and is ideal when several different families renting the villa. Our biggest feature though, that sets us apart from other villas, is our staff. They are all exceptional people, and will do everything in their power to make sure you have a stress free holiday of a lifetime.
