I am a business journalist based in Asia. My husband, a voice artist, and I bought this apartment off-plan in 2002. it was finished in 2005 and rented on a short-term basis. We have a maid and a driver on staff. The driver, Anny, speaks English very well and is a wonderful resource for good places to spend time in Phuket. I manage rentals from Hong Kong with the help of CBRE, our on-site management company. I would be delighted to provide further information or answer questions.
