As Phuket is an Island there are many lovely white sandy beaches. However, the closest beaches to the property are Kata and Kata Noi. Kata Beach is about a 10 minute walk down hill and Kata Noi is about a 15 minute walk. Both beaches are picturesque and have plenty of lounger chairs with umbrellas for a small rental charge payable on all beaches in Phuket. If you have a car then you can drive to Nai Harn which is a very pretty smaller secluded beach along the coast.
There is only one airport and that is Phuket International Airport which is situated at the Northern West Coast. There are Taxi's available which cost in the region of about 20.00 Pounds to Kata depending on how well you barter. There are also car hire which will cost anything from 20.00-40.00 pounds per day depending on your requirements. From the airport to Kata is approximately 50 minutes drive and is very straight forward if you were to hire a car.
The closest village to the property is Kata which is a 10 minute walk. The closest tourist attraction is Promthep Cape which would have to be the island's most photographed and perhaps best-known location. This is about a 7-10 minute drive. There are also 3 Elephant parks, go-karting, quad biking and shooting range all within 10 minutes drive.
The local shops are 10 minutes walk downhill from the property, where you will find is a small grocery store providing all the necessary essentials like eggs, bread, milk, pasta, beers, wines etc... Several banks and money changers are easily found as well as Seven/Eleven outlets. Many massage and pampering spa treatments are never far away in Phuket providing great value and relaxation. All types of shopping can be found along the narrow streets of Kata including sales of swimwear, dresses, T shirts, shorts, shoes, hand bags, hats, belts reading and sun glasses, DVD's, jewellery and plenty of beach needs and attire. Within Kata itself there are about 100 restaurants offering both local and International Cuisine. Several within easy walking distance of the property including Re Ka Ta, The Boathouse and Mom Tri's Kitchen which are all down the hill towards the beach on the main road. There are also 3 restaurants up the hill about 7 minutes walk which are Afterbeach Bar, Small View Point Seafood Bar and Bann Chom View. These offer a fantastic sunset view and the food is both Western and Thai is inexpensive and tasty. As far as places of interest there are so many but to name a few Promthep Cape, The Big Budda both within an easy drive as well as Wat Chalong and Phuket Temples. There are many different boat trips to take including James Bond Island, Phi Phi and Phang Nga Bay. The boat trips are offered by many outlets in Kata village and are a great way to see the islands off Phuket. There are lots of ways to relax in Kata including lying on the white sandy beaches or participating in a bit of Parasailing seeing a birds eye view of the stunning coastal line of South Phuket. There are jet ski's, banana ride behind the back of a speed boat and of course sailing. The island of Phuket has so much to offer to all ages it is no wonder that when you find a holiday destination like this you will want to come back year after year and always find something new.
About Sheila Dickson
We are originally from the UK but have lived in Australia and Asia for the most part of 20 years. We are an active family who enjoy all types of sports, love to entertain and be entertained. We work hard and so found having a beach destination holiday home the perfect solution to balance. We have been travelling to Phuket for over 10 years now but only discovered Kata about 5 years ago and what a find it was. There is something very unique about the South of the island, it has more of a European feel to it than anywhere else in Phuket. The lovely views across the Andaman Sea with its cooling breeze, the beach side restaurants and the relaxed atmosphere makes it a very special part of the world which we love.
Sheila Dickson purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Sheila Dickson chose Karon
We lived in Singapore for 14 years and is only 1.5 hours from Phuket and has everything we could want in a family holiday close to home. We used to leave Singapore at 6.30pm with the 1 hour time change we arrive in Phuket by 7.00pm. Pick up a hire car and are generally pulling up outside our property at about 8.30pm. Our property is spacious, well thought out and very relaxing with plenty of areas to enjoy the quite surroundings of the Condo. Often when I go to our place in Kata I just relax reading a book by our pool and yet I know if I want it I have so many activities only a few minutes away. The Kata area has everything to keep the entire family happy Golf, Water Sports, beaches, good food, shopping spa treatments etc..
What makes this Villa unique
What we enjoy the most about going to our property is the fact that even though we are a big family there is space for us all to enjoy being in each others company without feeling we are on top of each other. There are 3 separate outdoor areas and 3 different parts of the living area for everyone to feel very comfortable. We have all the bi-folding windows open and love that we have our own private pool too cool us down. At about 5pm we often sit by our bar in the courtyard and watch the sunset sipping a cocktail or lounge on the balcony and enjoy the ever changing sky and ocean. There is a main salt water swimming pool a good few stairs down from our Penthouse but is worth it and lovely once you are there. The gym, jacuzzi, and sauna's are all in the same area and is never busy. This is a really tranquil place to holiday if you need to relax but has everything so close by if you want an adventurous, sporty or touristy holiday. If you want nightlife Patong is only a 15/20 minutes toot-toot ride along the coast which is an experience in itself.
