About Brian Phillips
I retired to Phuket seven years ago, and am now living the dream , golfing 5 days per week and sailing, surfing or snorkelling on the other two days . The food is wonderful, the climate is wonderful , the Thai people are wonderful , the service is wonderful - what's not to like ?
Brian Phillips purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Brian Phillips chose Karon
Eighteen years ago , I adopted two abandoned baby girls from this area . They are currently at an excellent school in England, but I wanted them to have something to return to if they ever wanted to come to Thailand . Also I wanted to retire here - the weather in England makes my joints ache !
What makes this Villa unique
Sun, sea , beaches , golf , food and wonderful people. The land of Smiles - Amazing Thailand

As described and Professionally Well Done
The owner Brian was a joy to work with; he was professional from the start, with promptness and accurate information. The property was as advertised, innkeeper/concierge manager was as equally communicative via WhatsApp and professional, staff was responsive and friendly. I felt very safe working with HomeAway policy, but it was Brian’s professionalism sealed the deal. The whole experience from complimentary Airport Transfer of day one, to the day we left 7 days later, our stay at Villa Jasmine was flawless, comfortable, enjoyable. The property is easy to get to (it is an hour ride from airport without traffic); 5 minutes to beautiful Kata Beach, Promthep Cape, 10 minutes to Old Town, Chalong Marina (all kinds of boat rides), 1/2 hour to various animal shows/rides and elephants sanctuary. Quiet enough to avoid too much tourists (like Patong Beach), but not short of night markets and good restaurants. The kiddie pool, efficient kitchen and updated utilities helped made the stay with children, and various generations of families easy. Inkeeper Is just a WhatsApp text and call away for requestS and answers. Our vacation was alsoA much more easier with the villa recommended tour company; reasonable price too. Definitely will work with Brian again should we decide to visit Phuket again. Highly recommended. Q
Agnes and her extended family had a great time in Villa Jasmine, and our staff were very pleased that she and her family enjoyed their stay. I have passed her comments to our staff , and we hope to see you again soon!
Villa Jasmine - A home away from home
Our Phuket family trip couldn't have been better than this one. Brian and his whole crew - Noi, Nuch, Muay, and Mhoo were above and beyond in serving us, ensuring we are comfortable and enjoy every moment during our stay.
The moment I confirmed the booking of Jasmine villa, Brian & Noi started communication via email/WhatsApp and were available for all my queries, making all the arrangements, services we needed during our stay
NOI - She is so loving and light-hearted. She was our point of contact to get anything we needed in Phuket. We never had to worry about figuring out "what, where, how." You ask Noi, and she will make it available for you at very reasonable prices.
NUCH - The best Thai food we ever had was from Nuch. We were a family of 6 adults & 2 kids. Thai is our favorite cuisine except my dad :). Since most of my family is vegetarian, Nuch modified her dishes, as per my instructions, to vegetarian dishes but still retained the authentic Thai flavors in the food.
MUAY - Such a sweetheart with a big smile on her face all the time. She was helping Nuch in the kitchen with dishes and other household services
MHOO - You will not see him a lot and might forget about him. But he is working behind the scene with getting all the groceries and anything you need from the market.
Breakfast was inclusive of the stay. We ate almost every dinner meal at the Villa prepared by Nuch at a very reasonable price. The total expense for six days( includes dinner, food/fruits from the supermarket, laundry, snacks, drinks, beer, etc.) was around USD 367( 11167 baht), which is so nominal for the services offered by Noi & her staff.
THANK YOU - Brian, Noi, Nuch, Muay, Mhoo, for making our stay a pleasant and memorable family trip. Whenever we plan a trip again to Phuket, will be staying at villa Jasmine or Malay.
I am so pleased that Aparno and his family had such a great time in Villa Jasmine, and took time out to write this detailed 5 STAR REVIEW.
It is greatly appreciated, and I have passed his comments to our staff, who are also absolutely delighted at Aparno's review. I know it makes them feel that their hard work is appreciated. They say - "Come back Soon Aparno"!
Can’t wait to come back sometime. Couldn’t have stayed at a better place. Staff was helpful, friendly and great cooks!
Great that you and your family enjoyed your New Year Stay in my Villa Jasmine - spread the word and more importantly, come back soon !
A very Happy .and Healthy New Year to you all.
Fantastic stay at Villa Jasmine
Our party, ranging from 70 years old to 2 years old had the most wonderful stay at Villa Jasmine. The property is perfect for young family’s with safe outdoors area, kids section of pool and bedrooms that are dark and quiet downstairs. The property is spacious, very well maintained and spotless. The real highlight was the cooking of the Villa staff who gave us the most amazing dinner each evening, and better than any restaurant we ate in. We ate and drank to our hearts content at hugely reasonable costs. We can’t thank the villa staff enough for a wonderful stay.
We loved Carla's family staying with us and having a great time - Many thanks for the wonderful review, I will forward it to Khun Noi and her staff.
Come back soon.
The staff, property, location, and views were all amazing!! If you are going to Phuket this is where you want to stay! My friends and I were 100% satisfied and we are already planning our next trip back to stay in this same property!
I am delighted that Harold and his friends from the USA enjoyed their stay so much in Villa Jasmine that they have decided to come back again . My staff and I love having Americans to stay, they are always charming , friendly and easy to please.
Had a great time staying here with my family. The staff did a great job !!
Very easy as Brian provided detailed information and answered all questions! Staff was excellent at villa and arranged for everything we requested. Excellent chefs! Some memorable meals!
Our staff were very happy looking after Subir and his family, they felt their stay was too short, and we look forward to seeing them again
The villa is situated in a quiet area in the gentle hills about 1 mile from the beautiful beach at Kata. The villa faces west over the Ocean and there are magnificent sunset views from the infinity pool. Kata has the world renowned Boat House Wine and Grill Bar , particularly famous for its wine list and superb food!
From November to April (approximately) the sea is flat calm and all types of boats can be hired, from long boats to jet skis and para rides. There is also excellent snorkelling and diving . The remainder of the year there is superb surf and all types of boards can be hired, from body boards to Malibou!
Other Activities: snorkelling, all beach activities - 'the best beach on Phuket'
Golf: Two magnificent golf courses, LOCH PALM and PHUKET COUNTRY CLUB nearby. Reservations, caddies, carts clubs, transport and reduced green fees can all be arranged.
LOCH PALM has a magnificent 18 hole course with a second 18 holes being completed in 2006
PHUKET COUNTRY CLUB has a beautiful 18 hole course and a superb 9 Hole LAKES course which must be the prettiest in Phuket (and one of the most difficult off the back tees).
