“Perfect holiday home”
We were a group of six young adults and stayed 10 days at this villa. We enjoyed our stay a lot because the villa was great. There was enough space for everyone and the pool area was excellent. Location was good , distance to the beach only 5 minutes with scooter. Our hosts, Ian and Kathy, were amazing and helped us whenever needed!
Response from the manager It was great meeting you all and thank you for taking the time to do a review. If you are planning a return to Phuket we have a warm welcome waiting for you.
“comfortable holidays in a beautiful environment”
We enjoyed two weeks of family holidays with our four teenagers in the beautiful Kata view villa. While organizing the trip we already got a lot of support from Ian. Once arrived in Phuket, Kathy and Ian gave us a warm welcome and a good introduction to the villa, the beaches, restaurants and the market and helped us to organize a car and scooters. This was very helpful. The whole family enjoyed the beautiful villa, often used the private pool and felt very comfortable. With our rented vehicles it was easy to visit many nice places of the island. For us it was the first time in Thailand, but we're already planning to come back...
Response from the manager Thank you so much for the review and your lovely comments, you were a wonderful family and it was a pleasure to look after you during your holiday, we really hope to meet you again!
“Great value for small group .”
We really enjoyed our stay at Kata Villa. Ian and Cathy were great met us on arrival and then took us on tour of town and to markets to get some fresh fruit. The villa was great we had 3 couples and plenty of room. Really enjoyed having our own pool and outdoor area. Will defiantly be booking again. Thanks Ian and Cathy for making us feel so welcome. See you again soon.
Response from the manager Thank you so much for your review it is really appreciated. You were a pleasure to have as guests and we would love to have you come and stay with us again!
“Welcoming home from home”
We were met at the airport immediately on arrival and taken to the Accommodation in an conditioned mini bus. Ian and Kathy were there to greet us with a very warm welcome and showed us around the villa which was beautiful. We immediately felt at home there was plenty of room and individual bathrooms for everyone. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the decor was perfect. The kids loved the pool my daughter even got the room the overlooked the pool and felt very spoilt the view of the mountains was beautiful. We were given directions a map and a mobile phone and we were taken for a mini tour to get our bearings and get dropped off at the hire car rental for the following morning after we had time to settle in. We wanted a family holiday where we could come and go as we wanted and have privacy as well which we got but with the knowledge that if we had any problem then Ian and Kathy were only a phone call away. I think that the information provided at booking was correct and we had a great holiday we managed to visit Siam Niramit show which is about 30 minutes away (can be booked all inclusive with food and great value for money) depending on traffic and also the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre and Waterfall which was about 45 minutes away close to the airport. We went up to the Big Buddah which you can see from the pool easy to find and a nice journey up the view of the island from there is spectacular but the begging pot is most definitely out up there though it is not pushed at you and very much at your discretion if you give or not. We liked the Rawai beach where you could find nice local restaurants and hire boats out to the island although we didnt do this as we ran out of time. Plenty to do, very friendly place would definitely stay here again. The flat screen and DVD collection was a welcome bonus. Thanks Ian and Kathy for making us feel so welcome
Response from the manager A great review it is lovely to hear you kind words and know that your experience was as good as we would hope, you were great guests and pleasure to look after, I hope we meet again in the future! Best wishes
“A holiday villa that lives up to the sales pitch”
I have traveled extensively and stayed at many different apartments/villas etc and have often felt slightly cheated when I have seen the actual accommodation as it id did not live up to the pictures. This is DEFINITELY not the case Kata View Villa. The accommodation is excellent and the views are beautiful. Ian and Kathy were absolutely fantastic and really helpful.
Response from the manager Thanks so much for your review, we are so pleased you had a great holiday, and hope to see you again soon!
A lovely 3 level villa, each b/rm with en-suite facilities, private pool, 2 kitchens, laundry, all the comforts required. A pre-programmed mobile phone is provided with handy numbers for the taxi, tour guide etc. It is well maintained and kept lovely and clean. The hard drive is also loaded with up-to-date movies for those rainy, stay in days and hanging poolside with a cocktail or beer is a must!! It's located less than a 10min tuk-tuk ride to Kata. If you can manage to get the same tuk-tuk driver (as we did) you won't have a problem getting home. If you want to go on Island trips or tours I suggest using the tour guide provided. She will organise everything for you. We organised one tour ourselves and the pickup service the tour co. provided, called us back 3 times to confirm our address. They eventually found us. The location is a bit ambiguous for some drivers. Ian and Kathy are great hosts. Friendly, funny, extremely helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. Overall a great experience and would definitely use their services again.
Response from the manager Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again!
“Do not overlook this villa... Ian and Kathy are a pleasure!!!”
Fantastic location, luxurious villa with all the bells and whistles you will need. Pool and sala are great to relax around... Ian and Kathy went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time and they had a driver who was very hospitable, knowledgeable, and most importantly a friendly and honest man. Can't recommend this villa highly enough. We will not consider any other when we return.
Response from the manager Thank you it was a pleasure to have you as guests and we await your return all the best!
“Beautiful and Cozy”
We came in group of 7. Ian and Kathy was awesome to put us with breakfast item as we arrived late in the evening. The place is stunning and beautiful. The owner take attention of little details like new movies was made available for us to enjoy. We had to comment that the place looks very clean and well maintained. The villa itself is located at a quiet residential area so will need some form of transportation to go around but we had motorbike so it's great for us! Motorbike rental can easily be arranged with Ian and Kathy. Overall it is a value for money, beautiful and cozy place to stay. And owner Phil is such a nice guy, a good whiskey drinker too!
Response from the manager Thank you so much for your kind words we are so pleased that you and your family and friends had such a nice time you were a pleasure to have as guests and we hope we see you again in the future!
I recently stayed at Kata View Villa with 6 other women on a mummy get away (no Kids). Ian and Kathy were extremely helpful via email in the lead up to our stay and looked after us, right down to the last detail. we had the pleasure of meeting Phil the Villa owner, who also was polite and helpful. Ian and Kathy organised a personal chef for us for 2 nights (Delicious food) and 1hr massages for all 7 of us, A tour guide if required, along with a birthday cake to be had with our last meal. They also organised car hire and Peter who we hired the car from, was pleasant helpful and kind, the car helped us get around, although you could catch a cab to most places if hiring a car is not for you, but i would recommend it. The accommodation was outstanding, perfect amount of room for our group, well appointed with everything we could possibly need, we stayed for 10 days and had our villa cleaned twice. I can't recommend Kata View Villa enough and we are already thinking about a 2016 holiday? Thank you again to everyone at Kata View Villa, we will miss you all x
Response from the manager Hi Karen & guests Thank you for such a lovely review we are delighted you all had such a wonderful time and can't wait to see you in 2016! Kind regards
“A relaxing spot with everything you could wish for”
Kata View Villa was just perfect for our extended family - 2 parents with 2 young children, 2 grandparents and 1 uncle. We all had our own very large bedrooms and the 2 lounge areas meant there was never a time where we were competing for space. The best feature of the villa was the private balcony with infinity pool and wonderful outdoor covered lounge area. We spent most of our time on the balcony, meeting up in the afternoons for a swim and a few drinks while catching up with each other after the day's activities. The villa itself is spotlessly clean, with cleaning service twice a week. It has a fully equipped kitchen on the ground level which was a necessity for us as we prepared the kids dinner most nights before putting them to bed and then headed off into town for some wonderful (and cheap!) meals out. Ian and Kathy, the property managers, are absolutely wonderful hosts. They couldn't be more helpful with any issues you may have. They organise a complimentary shuttle pick up from the airport (45 min taxi ride to Kata) and have the fridge stocked with some starter items upon arrival. They also provide you with a cell phone with pre-programmed numbers for use for the duration of your stay. Their restaurant recommendations were fantastic - with so many options to choose from and a wide variation in quality, their top picks were absolute winners every time. 2 minor negatives to comment on: 1) this villa is on 3 levels with a full set of stairs between each level - it wasn't an issue for us but I can see this being an issue for those with physical difficulties (the grandparents were struggling a bit); and, 2) the main road up the hill was noisy. Certainly not as noisy as you would find being right in the thick of things in Kata, but if you're after absolute peace and tranquility you will be disappointed.
