“So disappointed................we only booked for 10 days !!”

From the moment we sent an enquiry right up to when we got home again, the level of communication, advice and information from the owners of this villa was exemplerary.
To stay at the villa you literally just need to turn up with your clothes and a toothbrush, every luxury and detail is ready and waiting for you !
We have stayed in several rented villas, all over the world but never had we experienced the degree of care provided at this property, the additional luxuries you would normally associate with a 5 star hotel, such as bathrobes and slippers, iPod docking stations, Molten & Brown toiletries in the bathrooms, lilos for the pool, free wifi, a library of hundreds of books, maid service three times a week............the list is quite literally endless ! Even food so you can feed the friendly neighbouring cats if you wanted to and the fish in the adjoining lagoon ! Even the store room was stocked with essentials you would normally have to purchase yourself on a self catering holiday, washing powder, tissues, bug spray, bags and towels for the beach, even hats and caps !
The villas is light and airy and very obviously furnished to an exceptionally high standard. The bedrooms are very large and the property is perfect for a large family or even three couples, as there is more then enough room.
The outside space is beautifully set out to enable you to take a dip in the pool whilst looking out over the lagoon and although there are other villas nearby, you are not overlooked and it's very private.
We felt comfortable and relaxed from the moment we drove into the gated community, there are always two or three security guards on duty, not that we even felt at all unsafe.
This is a wonderfully quiet location yet it only takes 10 minutes to walk onto the nearby road, where there is a bakery and several restaurants, supermarket and other shops.
We were so relaxed at this villa our 10 day holiday seemed to flow by in a daze of sunshine, sunbathing, reading books and taking a dip in the pool !
If you are looking for an outstanding villa in Phuket, stop right there, you just found it !

My wife and I have just returned from our second visit to Baan Nai Fun. The villa is very stylish, but is also extremely comfortable, with everything you could want. The attention to detail is amazing and nothing is too much trouble for the very helpful owners. We loved swimming in the pool and the secluded outside area is well equipped with sun loungers overlooking the garden leading down to a small lake. A car is helpful if you want to visit the many local attractions and beaches, but there are several restaurants and shops within walking distance for those that prefer not to drive. We also made use of the bikes to cycle to the local German bakery to buy bread and croissants before returning to sit in the Sala to eat breakfast overlooking the lake. What bliss!

“Wonderful home for a perfect holiday”

We stayed at Baan Nai Fun for a month and could not stop loving the beautiful house, the luxurious pool, the spacious tropical gardens and the fantastic locals who help Shari and Phil maintain the place in such immaculate condition.

It is really obvious how much effort Shari and Phil have put into developing and maintaining such an amazing property. That same attention to detail and quality extends to the whole experience of staying at Baan Nai Fun, from the very useful guide booklet Shari and Phil provide to guests, to the welcome pack and to all the other arrangements they offer to make for your holiday (they booked our transfers, car rental and even found us some superb babysitters).

The local people (Khun Big, Khun Mala, Khun Ya, Khun Samard and Khun Tan) who Shari and Phil arranged to help us during our stay all lavished us with the same quality of service that Shari and Phil have earnt over their years in Nai Harn.

Everything positive we read in the previous reviews about Baan Nai Fun was true. The photos of the property only show partly how beautiful the house and pool are. When you first jump into the pool, swim across to the infinity edge and gaze out past the orchids and palms to the small lake in front, the magic of Baan Nai Fun starts to work its way into your heart.

The house is part of a very quiet, secure and upmarket housing estate and Nai Harn beach is just down the road.

We found Nai Harn is one of the best areas in Phuket, being an expat location with plenty of great restaurants, very few hotels and minimal high rise developments. Nai Harn beach is a gem (with good surfing when we stayed in July) and the surrounding areas of Rawai, Kata and Chalong provided us with plenty to eat, see and do.

The experience of staying at Baan Nai Fun was so good that we have already booked our stay next year.

“Everything you could wish for!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

From the response to our initial inquiry, through requests for advice in advance, to the speedy refund of our deposit, the owners Phil and Shari did everything possible to make our stay as easy as possible. This was a family "Dream Holiday of a Lifetime", and Baan Nai Fun played its part in making those dreams come true.

We came from 3 nights in Bangkok where we had been given a free upgrade to the penthouse suite in a top 20 hotel, and there was absolutely no feeling of a drop in quality when we reached the villa. The place was immaculately presented and the pictures don't do it justice. On days when we needed to chill out the size of the villa meant our 20 & 22 year old sons had their own space which really helped.

You can feel this is family home, but you very quickly feel it is your family home. From the welcome pack to the massive library of books, dvd's and cd's this is a true representation of "Mi casa es su casa"

Although you can walk to the nearest village with a decent selection of restaurants and essential stores, we are glad we hired a car. Location wise, you are right on the south of Phuket with 2 of Asia's top 10 beaches within a 10-15 minute drive, and a third, smaller one Yanui (which IMHO is the nicest) even easier to get to. A Sat-nav is helpful especially in the first few days.

However if you want to get busy, Patong is about 25 minutes drive. Our two eldest sons did a couple of nights on the Bangla Road, and got taxis back for under £15, although you may pay more to get there. Point is this villa will let you try that type of nightlife if that is what you want, but for us less adventurous types it was perfect for a relaxing break.

Service from the maids and security was A1, and in spite of my teens/grownup boys they kept everywhere scrupulously clean and tidy.

With towels, toiletries, first aid kit adapters guidebook and all you could possible need at the villa, you actually could do a hand luggage only trip if you want to save money on flights, but nothing about Baan Nai Fun feels anything less than first class.

Sadly I cant see circumstances allowing us to return to Thailand, but if that changed, I would return to Baan Nai Fun in a heartbeat.

Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home

The ultimate moral dilemma. So good you should tell everyone, so good you don't want to tell anyone.
Great location close to Nai Harn Beach and village with a good variety of restaurants and amenities. A car or scooters are recommended but taxi's are also available.
The villa has everything you need including beach & pool towels. Phil & Shari have provided a wealth of information and recommendations and are very quick to respond if you have any need to contact them.
We stayed with 2 teenagers and there are lots of non-beach activities for them as well.
This is a real home from home and we hope to return soon.

“Great Location, home from home”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

6 of us stayed from the 16th to 29th March 2014 and the villa was perfect. About half a mile from Nai Harn Beach and the same distance into Nai Harn town.
Nothing was too much trouble for Shari and Phil and they kept in contact by email to ensure our stay was trouble free.
The villa is well appointed, with every mod-con needed if you just wanted to relax by the chlorine free pool (nice, no stinging eyes) and as it was close to the beach, not far if you needed to get back quickly.
Would definitely stay again
