This property is comfortable but not a home from home like most of the other properties we have rented in Hua Hin. To get the most from your stay you do need transport of some description. The local taxi service from just outside the complex costs 200 THB to get to the centre of Hua Hin. There is a small shop nearby where you can buy water, beer etc and the owner will deliver. There is one restaurant nearby which serves good food but does not have a lot of atmosphere. The closest 7-11 is by the railway line approximately 3km away. Soi 94 has a lot of really good restaurants, but we found it quite dangerous to walk the 2 or 3 km back in the dark as there are a number of dogs roaming the area near to the complex.
We did not have a lot of contact with the manager of the villa but dealt directly with the Norway Gardens team who rented bikes for us and also arranged for their very good cleaner to clean the villa.
Contact with the owner was good and he was very responsive, even getting the internet upgraded when we had a problem.
For us the villa was too far from the beach and town so we would not return.
This villa is in a lovely location and secure, we were roughly 10 min scooter / tuk tuk (approx.. 150 baht) ride from the beach (we went to Hua Hin 77 Alley as there was parking for the scooters and could get everything you need for the beach – sunbeds, food drink etc. and prices were reasonable)
You had everything you need, kitchen with hob, kettle coffee making machine and a large fridge for the beer! ;o), bedroom 1 had a large king size bed and a single bed, bedroom 2 had a double bed and a large single bed and the 3rd bedroom had a king size bed and en-suite. Plenty of storage space for clothes etc. washing machine and tumble dryer, and BBQ available for use. Internet connection was really good there were 4 adults and we had many devices connected without any issues,
A couple of light bulbs needed replacing whilst we were there, and the caretaker did it pretty much straight away and was friendly/polite – to me that’s blooming good service, we have stayed at other places and can wait days for items to be sorted out..
Pool was cleaned at least 3 time whilst we were there
We hired 2 scooters for approx. £100 for the 2 weeks we were there, they were really handy to get around
The new shopping mall near to the Marriott is a good place to go and change money (top floor there are several banks) we got a good rate and didn’t incur charges – we just took Stirling/ Euros with us – if you do this make sure you take good notes i.e. not written on or torn.
The owners of the villa were very helpful and quick with replying to communication/ email – Thank you :o)
