|Further details outdoors|
The pool measures 12m x 5.5m and is filtered by an ionised non chlorinated water system which is beautifully clean and more healthy than chlorinated water . There is a multi jet jacuzzi spa just outside the master bedroom.
The pool is not fenced off and therefore children will need to be carefully supervised.
Table-tennis, weights, pool equipment and two good mountain bicycles are available for active guests.
As there is a balcony and unfenced swimming pool, young children need to be very closely supervised. Renters booking with children do so entirely at their own risk and the owners are not responsible for any accidents or untoward events.
There are approx 20 stairs from the balony level to the pool and 3 bedrooms so may be difficult for those with serious mobility problems. The bedroom on the balony level has a large walk in shower.
The Phuket region
Climate is tropical, with little variation in temperature. Humidity changes significantly: low season lasts from November to March. Humidity starts to increase in April, and there is some rain in July and August. However, weather in August compares favourably with the UK, with sun every day and some rain in the evenings. Please observe the safety flags on beaches in the wet season. Scuba diving is still possible, and visibility is very good. Everything remains open. Rain becomes regular in September and October.
Thailand is predominately Buddhist; Muslims make up around 10% of the population, and there are nearly as many mosques as temples.
The infrastructure in Phuket is excellent. Transport is good (although a hire car is recommended for this location, and there are no railways on Phuket.) Private hospitals are run on US lines for those with insurance, and service is at least as good as the private sector in the UK. Over the last five years, western style shopping malls have been built near Phuket Town and Patong, and smaller neighbourhood malls are springing up in several areas.
The house is on a 1300m2 plot at the Nai Harn beach end of the development. Nai Harn is a quiet area well to the south of the magnets of Kata-Karon and Patong. The beach is superb, and there are dozens of restaurants within a ten-minute drive. Prices range from £3 to £20 per head. Some of these are of exceptional quality, and service is usually excellent.
A trip to Nai Harn can be as relaxing or as active as you like. Children love the area. Boat trips across the stunning Phang Nga bay are a must. This can be combined with a trip to the so-called James Bond Island (Ko Phing Gun) or the Muslim fishing village at Ko Panyee, or sea canoeing into the caves and hongs where you may see monkeys, bats and lungfish.
There is a National Park at Khao Sok (3 hours' drive), where you can take a jungle safari or go white water rafting. More locally, you might try an ATV trip or elephant trekking. There are several high-quality golf courses within a twenty-minute drive, including the Laguna Palm and Mission Hills. The famous Blue Canyon course is an hour from the house. On-line bookings can be made.
Phuket and nearby islands are among the best snorkelling / dive-sites in the world. We are happy to advise on locations and to recommend PADI training facilities. It is possible to be on Phi Phi in 45 minutes by speedboat from Chalong. Alternatively, try Shark Point and Stag Horn Reef. Further away, an overnight trip to the Similan Islands is well worthwhile.
Towns on the west coast are varied and interesting. The first towns as you head north are Kata and Karon (great shopping, Dino's mini golf and many restaurants) and Patong (for pretty well everything, including a fantastic new shopping mall called Jung Ceylon, parasailing and go-karting). The northern side of Patong is home to the Simon Cabaret, where the Lady Boys will amaze you. (Avoid the "VIP" seats on the ends of rows, or make sure your friends sit in them!) Further north still is Kamala - Fantasea is a tremendous show.
Phuket City is busy and crowded,and quite difficult to negotiate. However, shopping (especially the markets) is lively, and there are some fine restaurants. There are also several churches.

We booked this villa on the the Baan Bua Estate, because we had stayed here before and simply loved the location, although we had stayed at another villa before we had some idea where the villa was located and so decided to stay at Baan Suk San.
We were not dissapointed, the view across the lake is amazing and the villa itself has got to be one of the best in the area.
Cannot fault this villa and its gorgeous surroundings, we had a wonderful time and felt very much at home, the pool was beautifully lit and looked just as stunning at night as it did in the day.
Quite simply a beautiful villa, and we will most definately be back.
Thank you for your comments and we are delighted you had a great holiday and felt at home.
