The house was designed primarily for comfort, not ostentation. The villa's ventilation, wall materials, aspect and high ceilings combine to make this a cool house.
A southern Thai roof structure has been fused with Balinese and Cambodian architectural features. The villa's one-off architectural design and separate plot will appeal to those who prefer individuality to housing estate mass reproduction.
The villa has a large garden, 2 kitchens, 3 bathrooms and 3 air-con bedrooms:
- master bedroom - 1 king sized bed
- bedroom 2 - 1 queen-sized & 1 single bed
- bedroom 2 - 1 queen-sized & 1 single bed
The villas master bedroom bathroom suite has a stylish outdoor shower and bath, enclosed in their own private garden.

Villa Alice is located 60m from a small but tarmaced road - just the right distance from just the right sized road. The tarmaced road is on a slow bend, so traffic noise is almost inaudible. Tranquil Nopparat Thara beach is only 4 minutes away. Bustling Ao Nang beach is 4 minutes further.

From Ao Nang in Krabi hop on a longtail boat to explore the fabulous Phang Nga bay. World-famous Railay, home to two of the best beaches on the planet, is only 20 minutes away.
Due to its central location in the Andaman Sea and to its fabulous topography and sporting opportunities, Ao Nang is, at the moment, arguably Thailand’s best all-round beach destination. It is predominately a family and sports destination. Whilst it lacks wild nightlife and young party travellers will bore quickly, it does have a few relaxed bars and two nightclubs.
Many beach destinations get ruined when over-development and over-population result in an unsupportable excess of pollutants. But somewhere along the way there is an optimal state, where there are enough facilities, but a still ecologically-sustainable tourist population. Ao Nang is now at this stage and represents, for many people, an ideal compromise between a pristine but boring destination and a fun but polluted one.
The southern half of the beach is not yet bordered by a road, yet the town has a wide enough range of facilities, for example six Italian restaurants, to keep most visitors happily occupied for at least a couple of weeks.
Ao Nang is busy but hasn’t lost that laid back, friendly small-town feel; it is developed but still retains its original beauty and charm.
Ao Nang is, along with Chiang Mai, one of Thailand’s two most exciting soft and extreme adventure sports destinations. The home of two of the best beaches on the planet, Railay, is fifteen minutes away by boat. The town’s location on the eastern coast of Phang Nga bay puts it within easy reach of all the fishing, diving and kayaking sites in the bay. A day-trip to Koh Phi Phi is a better way to visit the place than staying there.
Ao Nang has numerous spas, beauty shops and massage parlours to offer you a little bit of pampering. Thai full- body massages lasting an hour cost around 250 Baht and, though you may feel that you have been pushed and pulled in improbable directions, you will feel rejuvenated afterwards.
Ao Nang itself has two idyllic, unspoilt beaches, which are lapped by clear, warm water. Other, pristine beaches are located on a number of outlying islands which can be accessed cheaply and quickly from Ao Nang by local longtail boats.
For those people who need a break from Thai food, a whole host of Western options are available in Ao Nang; these include traditional English food, Indian Food, Scandinavian food, steaks, pizza and pasta (there are 6 Italian restaurants).
Ao Nang offers a wide range of activities and attractions, including snorkelling, kayaking, island-hopping, climbing, diving, spa/massage/beauty, shopping, white water rafting, hiking, kayaking, snorkelling, temple visits, fishing parks, elephant trekking, cooking classes, massage classes, market exploration and fishing.
