The Phuket region
Phuket enjoys great popularity as a travel destination. Most beaches are on the west coast, with Phuket Town to the south-east and the airport in the north.
Phuket is hot and humid throughout the year. The high season is generally considered to be from November to May. During the summer monsoon season, mornings and afternoons are still sunny and clear, but it tends to rain in the evenings and water clarity goes down. Locals consider May to October the "cool" season, and the weather is very nice, much more so than in the tourism centres around the Gulf coast.
Surfing is possible off the western beaches.
Layan Beach is the local name of the northern part of Bang Tao beach, north of the Laguna Resort. Bang Thao is a large open bay with one of Phuket's longest beaches. Dry season swimming is excellent, and at the bay's north end is a smaller bay, almost completely enclosed, at the mouth of which is some fine coral. Plenty of places to eat, tour companies, and other tourist facilities are available either at Laguna or in the nearby town of Cheong Thale. But Layan beach itself is mainly undeveloped and remains the wide open pristine views so commonly advertised about the beaches in Thailand. On the beach is a small restaurant for breakfast and dinner, beach chairs are provided but not obligatory. Just around the corner is one of the best Thai restaurants on Phuket, cheaply priced but of a quality you won't find anywhere else on the island. Layan is excellent for families or older couples who want to enjoy the beauty of tropical Phuket.

We stayed here for a week - the apartment is in a lovely complex with a fantastic swimming pool - very quiet, you practically had the resort to yourself.
You definitely need a car (renting at airport would be best as it was a little challenging to do locally but managed it in the end!) The roads are too busy to walk on with no pavement. Driving out there was fine, it gave you the opportunity to explore and we had a great time doing so and going to beaches that we wouldn't have visited without the car. Layan beach is very close, secluded and beautiful.
Jaap the owner was great in helping with queries.

"Peace and tranquility"
I stayed to Ocean Breeze with my wife over Xmas 2012 and New Year 2013, we had planned a quite relaxful holiday and that is exactly what we got. Apartment 3H is excellent, the equipment, beds, furniture etc is great, local maid service ensures cleanliness. Ocean Breeze is a haven of tranquility, excellent pool and facilities and quiet surroundings. the staff could not be more helpful. If there is any negative point it is only the location requires transport to and from the beach, restaurants and shops, but most local restaurants will provide pick ups and drop offs. local beach is terific. If your looking for a relaxing holiday then I cannot recommend this more. 3H owner Jaap makes sure everything is sorted and his communications are excellent.

Thank you very much for the review and all the great suggestions.
Another car rental agency with which I have good experiences and can recommend is mastercarrental.com, where you can rent a car starting from THB 630,- per day.

"Great find, great location!"
We booked this apartment for a week starting the 4th April 2012.
The owner, Jaap, made the booking process friendly, efficient and stress free. The apartment itself is of good quality and well resourced, ideal for a couple looking for a quite retreat or for a small family. The location is GREAT if you are looking for a quite break away from the crowds of the larger, more popular, beaches. The estate is fresh, clean and the communal pool is excellent. Being close to the airport is a definite advantage, especially as the location is undisturbed by air traffic. I would say, hiring a car or bike is essential, but that shouldn't put you off. The idyllic and peaceful location more than makes up for the requirement to hire a car!
We hope to go back, I am sure any would-be traveller will enjoy this property!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review. It was a pleasure having you as a guest and I am looking forward to welcome you back again.

"Didn't want to leave"

Next year I'll arrange a taxi to pick you up from the airport for maximum convenience, so the taxi driver will be able to find the resort even when you didn't bring the directions! I am looking forward to welcome you back next year, either in this property or in the 3 bedroom penthouse when you will be coming with friends & family.

"Comfortable place to stay during your Phuket visit"
I've been staying at Jaap's apartments for over a week in August together with my friends. The place is very comfortable, has a large pool, nice surroundings, and is very calm. The beach is nearby (around 500m), there's a good access to Thai food (there are two restaurants within 500m), and it's very relaxing after a busy day in one of the colorful towns of Phuket. Good price/performance. Jaap has also been very responsive and helpful about anything we needed, and made good suggestions on where to go in Phuket or where to do shopping.
Thank you very much, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the place as much as I do!

"LOVING OCEAN BREEZE"
Thailand is our favourite holiday destination, and this is our favourite holiday home.So much so we have stayed several times!
Set in one of Phukets most uncommercialised coastal areas, this is a high end development of plantation style buildings, set in gorgeous gardens, surrounding a pool to die for, and only a couple of minutes drive from beautiful Layan beach (walkable if you dont mind the heat).
The apartment is just as the pictures show....perfect..clean,comfortable,and well equiped.
Best of all is the huge fan cooled outside living area for eating , chilling and enjoying the view. A view which takes your breath away each morning when you open the blinds!
The gym, wifi, 24/7 security, and a manned office are all an added bonus, as is the maid twice a week.
Nearby there are a couple of restaurants. Baan Suan Layan, and Layan sea view(steep track) The former and others offer transport.
Thai food is fabulous, but if you do want to cook there are great local markets nearby, selling a whole range of fresh produce, fruit and fish, which are fun to shop in. Phuket also has huge supermarkets (not so much fun) and smaller tesco lotus which are handy.
For serious shopping Patong has all the copy handbags, dvds, girls and traffic!
In all my correspondence Jaap the Dutch owner has always been most helpful, and will be happy to give you lots of tips, or answer any quiries.
Phuket is a beautiful island, with so much to see and do, and this is a perfect place to stay.
Take our word for it, we are a well tavelled English couple with high expectations, and have just booked again for 2012.
Thank you very much, each year it is a pleasure to welcome you back again!
