“Luxurious Villa a little remote from the beach”

The presentation of the villa is exactly as it appears in the photos, 4 couples could comfortably reside there. Bathrooms are huge and have and oversize bath, huge shower, separate enclosed toilet and two basins.

There is live in gardener/cleaner living within the compound monitoring anyone entering. A huge compound with two villas completely separate. Sit in a rubber plantation (not palms although there are plenty of palms in the compound. All bedrooms airconditioned, meals living area has ceiling fans, pool and house is immaculately cleaned everyday. Fresh flowers from the garden and orchids are spread through the house.

At the other end of the mobile phone provided is a villa rep more than happy to assist with any requirements relating to the house, transport, or tours.

Getting a cook in to cook a thai meal is dirt cheap ~ 100USD for 7 people including provisions.

Pool was consistently 30 degrees Celsius so perfect to jump into and live in.

It is a little tricky to find and not everyone knows where it is so note the route! Geckos move around the ceiling of the meals area but keep to themselves.

Perfect for a very relaxing week away

“Probably one of the best villa to rent in Krabi”
Reviewed March 5, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

I can say you have a very positive impression when you first step in the Villa Galanga. The incredibly large living room (too large maybe), the impressive kitchen counter (too long maybe), the nice rooms and bathrooms. All ok. Equipment is complete.
It is also very convenient to provide two free round trips per day to Hao Nang by tuk-tuk. It can contains 10 people and the drive to the small city is about 5 to 10 mn.
The garden is large, the pool standard.
We took twice the cook for dinner, good thai food and good BBQ. But this is extra and you will need to pay for it. Also there is no service included besides daily cleaning, means you have to clean the dishes since it is not proposed. We had it done anyway with the housekeeper living close to the villa, with good tip at the end of the week.
If you are used to rent villas in Bali,this is the main difference b ut for a week it is manageable.
It is also a good idea to stop for shopping at the Tesco supermarket after leaving the airport (45mn allowed to shop there by the MPV driver). Note that in Ao Nang you will only find 7/11, no large supermarkets (and no Schweppes for the gin tonic..!).
Krabi islands and beaches are just nice.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed January 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

From the time we arrived & until we left the service was excellent. If you are travelling with a group of friends or as a family group this is the place to stay!
The Villa is amazing! It's better in real life than what you see on the web site. It's huge!!! Beautifully appointed with everything a discerning traveller could want.
We were greeted by Mark and the staff upon arrival to show us around. The housekeeper and gardener/pool man live on the premises, lovely people but also unobtrusive - they were there if you needed anything at any time.
The service provided by the Krabi Villa Rental staff was also excellent. They can arrange your transfers when you leave & also provide transport to & from the Villa to Ao Nang township - 2 trips per day is included free of charge.
They can also arrange a chef to cook for you if you want to eat at the Villa - this is highly recommended! Our chef cooked the most amazing seafood feast for my birthday celebration - 9 people and it only cost $160 AUD, there was so much food we even had left-overs.
The Villa is a 5 minute tuk-tuk ride from Ao Nang, walking into town is not really an option. However, that being said, it was the privacy that we all enjoyed the most! No other guests to consider, no pool time restrictions, no set times for breakfast etc. You can get up in the morning to freshly baked croissants (delivered by your housekeeper), and go for a swim in your own private pool late at night after dining at one of the fabulous restaurants in Ao nang.
Ao Nang is a very relaxed, laid back town - lots of fabulous restaurants, lots of shops - with shopkeepers that don't hassle you - and the scenery is to die for!.
Our entire group, without exception, all said they would return to Ao Nang & recommend Villa Galanga as the place to stay
