About the property

Secluded 6 bed villa with infinity pool, spectacular views & tropical gardens

The perfect secluded setting for a relaxed and private experience with family or friends. Nestled into the jungle and set in an area of 1,140sqm, this modern house provides some of the best sea-views available in Phuket. Located on a small peninsular, the villa is just a few minutes walk from two beautiful beaches; Ao Yon (east-facing) and Khao Khad (west-facing). Both beaches are in sheltered bays making them perfect for swimming all year round.

With six bedrooms, five bathrooms, guest WC, outside shower, Thai and western kitchens, large open plan living space, a private swimming pool, garden, carport and terrace, this high end villa is spacious and can comfortably accommodate up to 20 guests (16 adults).

We can arrange whatever additional services you need to make your stay as indulgent as you'd like such as a chef to prepare your meals, maids to clean the villa, in-house massage, nanny/baby-sitter etc

The private and romantic setting with stunning views across the bay make it a perfect location for a special event. We've hosted a number of weddings and other events at the Glasshouse and can help with arrangements.

The exterior of this architect designed home is set among landscaped gardens with a 10m infinity pool with jacuzzi as the centre piece. A Thai style Sala is the perfect place to shelter from the sun or enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets across the bay.

The interior of the home is equipped with high quality locally sourced furniture and fittings that will make your experience a luxurious one. From the sleek wooden floors in the bedrooms to pristine marble flooring throughout the open plan living space, every part of the home oozes class.

Whilst in touch with the surrounding nature, the house is equipped with high speed wireless internet throughout, multi-room sound system, 50' TV/home theatre.

Living Area: The spacious open planned living space with panoramic views of Chalong bay spans the entire width of the property and opens directly on to the pool terrace and sala. It includes a dining area, accommodating 8 for formal dining, a TV den with state of the art audio-visual entertainment system and a double height sitting area. The open design merges with the pool terrace making it ideal for informal, al fresco eating, entertaining or just relaxing. The living space extends upstairs where we have a full-sized table tennis table, an office desk in case you have to work and an outside balcony with a circular day bed. Perfect for meditation, reading or a place for the kids to play.

An adjacent Thai kitchen with Smeg gas stove complements the interior space. Breakfast bar with marble top provides an additional social hub.

Outdoor Space: The house is set among landscaped tropical gardens connected by stone pathways and dotted with several terraced areas. The 10m infinity pool is the centre piece and includes a jacuzzi for the ultimate indulgence, day or night. Loungers on the pool side are perfect for soaking up the sun or move to the Thai style sala with it's sofas and coffee table for some shade. The sala has speakers wired to the multi room sound system so that you can enjoy chill out music by the pool, or perhaps something more lively with cocktails as you watch the sun go down. An outside barbecue provides another option for dining/entertaining. Outside seating includes; 8 poolside loungers, sofa for 6 in sala, 4 bar stools.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We rented The Glass House for our special wedding anniversary for 2 weeks with our family. There were 11 of us including 2 children and a baby. The facilities are so spacious that we never felt crowded.

The owner, Bradley, is an excellent host and very attentive during the booking process ( and quick at returning the deposit).

It is well located with nearby restaurants, bars, massages. The nearer of the two beaches is a bit abandoned but the second (only an extra 100 metres) is pleasant with bars, restaurants and a beautiful view of the bay.

The interior is reasonably well fitted out although some of the appliances in the kitchen could do with upgrading (like the small 2 slice toaster for 11 people).

The bedrooms are comfortable. The master bedroom is sumptuously large, with a beautiful bathroom including a sunken tub.

The pool is great, just large enough, with a small stepped area where kids who don't swim can play. But beware, it is not fenced so keep an eye on the children! Sunset by the pool is spectacular. See the sun go down behind the giant Buddha on the mountain on the other side of the bay while sipping your tipple of choice. Great for photographers.

All the service providers recommended by the property were good. We availed ourselves of extra cleaning, a cook for several days when we stayed in and a nanny (who was excellent). We also used the taxi service next door which is also efficient, polite and pleasant.

Finding fault with this property is really nit picking but I would suggest that you check that everything works, especially lighting when you arrive. If it doesn't, phone the housekeeper and she gets things sorted efficiently and asap.

Definitely recommended.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the most fantastic 2 weeks at The Glasshouse. Our group was made up of 7 adults and 10 children ranging in age from 11 months to 14 years and the house was absolutely perfect for us all. The house itself is stunning, spacious and airy with heaps of room for our large group. The views were gorgeous and we must have taken hundreds of sunset shots! ...and the pool was a huge hit with the kids. The location is also unbeatable - in a lovely quiet spot away from the big resorts but walking distance to 2 beautiful beaches and there are a number of great restaurants and beach bars close by too. Bradley was exceptionally helpful whilst we were booking and organising our trip and he gave us loads of great tips and advice. We employed a chef during our stay and she was wonderful - she made a wide variety of dishes (anything we requested) and also managed some special dietary needs in our group - we were really spoilt and it made it feel like a real holiday not having to cook or wash up! We also made the most of the services of Mr Bao the driver and he took us on a number of day trips and outings. Plus the villa manager Khun Pond was to hand to greet us and to help us with any needs we had during our stay.

We had a wonderful relaxing 2 weeks and were very sad to leave. We have already recommended The Glasshouse to friends as we were so delighted with our stay.

Thanks again Bradley, Khun Pond, Mr Bao and Chef Ao for a fantastic holiday

Wedding at The Glass House

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from my most fantastic holiday in my life.

I stayed in the glasshouse for two weeks and the time spent in the villa was unforgettable. In point a fact I went there for a very special occasion - I got married and celebrated my wedding in the villa.

I have to start with thanking Bradley for making it all possible. Throughout the process from the first email till arrival in the villa, everything was well managed and organized. Bradley was always responding to my queries immediately and booking the villa was a pleasant experience.

Then I arrived at the villa I was pleasantly surprised because it looked even better than in pictures. The villa was spotless and looked gorgeous. During our stay, the villa was well looked after and we had cleaners coming in to clean villa itself as well as pool and take care of the garden.

In total there were 14 of us on this holiday, and as much we enjoyed excursions around the island we sometimes couldn't wait to get back to the villa to relax by the pool and enjoy fantastic views.

I would like to thank Khun Pond for managing our queries during our stay. Every time we had a query, she dealt with it immediately and got things resolved

For anyone staying in the glasshouse, I would like to recommend Mr. Bao taxi services and he also organized a tour around Phuket for us. And to make the holiday even more pleasant, we had Chef coming to the villa to cook for our group. I have to say that it makes the difference - We enjoyed Pan's and Mum's cooked dishes very much.

I recommend the villa to anyone interested in spending amazing time in Phuket

Amazing Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from the most amazing trip we could have dreamt of. We gathered in Thailand, most of us coming from 3 different areas in Australia and met our son and family there who live in Switzerland. The Glasshouse was the perfect venue for this gathering and we could not have dreamt how magical the experience was. From the very first enquiry, booking, payment and welcome on arrival, through to refund of bond, it was handled with complete professionalism, efficiency and open communication. We must have asked poor Bradley hundreds of questions ( which in hindsight were completely unwarranted) and he always got back to us promptly. Thank you Bradley.! The house is just as it is advertised on the websites, huge, clean and beautiful. The staff made sure our stay was enjoyable and we could highly recommend this venue.

Wedding at the Glass House

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to pass on to any interested renters that this Villa is the best. The house was very comfortable. The view beautiful.

We held our daughters wedding at the Villa and it was magical. Ceremony done in time to walk the newly married couple to the beach

and get some great sunset pictures. The Beach Bar is half a mile away and what a place. View-food-prices.

And Bradley's contact Mr. Bao was priceless. Set up all transportation needs and went above and beyond setting up day excursions on a speed boat, ferry to Phi Phi and private boat to Coral Island. This man was great!

No second doubts that I would return. Highly recommend for any travelers and there family.

Would recommend to anyone that wants

About Bradley

I'm a physician from the U.K but have been living in Thailand for more than 10 years, based in Bangkok.

Bradley purchased this villa in 2010

Why Bradley chose Vanich Bay Front Ville

I fell in love with the Glasshouse as soon as I stepped foot inside and I hope you will too.

It was designed by a top-rated architect as a family home with exquisite attention to detail.

The villa is nestled into the jungle on a small peninsular in the south part of Phuket. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the West coast but still convenient for many of the attractions around the island.

The internal living space connects seamlessly with the outside area which in turn is in harmony with the surroundings.

What makes this villa unique

A secluded home away from home that's perfect for gatherings of family and friends.

To give guests maximum flexibility and in recognition of the reality of varying budgets, we offer the villa as self-catering with the option of adding additional services to meet your specific needs. These include a chef, maid service, nanny/babysitter service etc, on-site massage etc

The private and romantic setting with stunning views across the bay make it a perfect location for a special event. We've hosted a number of weddings at the Glasshouse and can help with arrangements.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The glasshous is like heaven on earth, stunning house, absolute luxury, beautiful sunsets, every comfort and need taken care of. staff wonderful and even cooked us a beautiful home cooked meal to come home to. I wish I could live like this forever.

Ao Yon is perhaps Phuket's best kept secret with two unspoiled beaches within approximately 100-200m of the Glasshouse. The beaches are well protected, so no risk of a tsunami! It's almost all sand - perfect for playing & swimming.

There are several eating options within walking distance of the villa. Two Thai style beach restaurants about 6-8 minutes walk along Khao Khad beach and a Western food restaurant 5 minutes walk by Ao Yon beach. The nearby boutique hotels and resorts have restaurants which are open to outside guests. There are many more options just a few minutes drive away and it's easy to get a local taxi to take you there and back.

Khao Khad is a short distance to Cape Panwa, which is one the island’s most exclusive areas. This region is situated on Phuket’s southeast coast, providing a tranquil retreat with nearby peaceful and unspoiled beaches.

Phuket Central is only a 15-20 minute drive away with shopping centers (Tesco Lotus, Central Festival and Big C), countless restaurants, a multiplex cinema, gym and other amenities. There are many restaurants, street hawker stalls and convenience stores within a 5-10 minute drive of the villa.

Phuket is also famous for it's numerous beaches, nightlife, golf courses, snorkeling, sailing, par-ascending, SCUBA diving, cabaret shows all of which are within 15-45 minutes of the villa.
