First of all I was not very impressed with the booking and confirmation set up, you deal with various people and it's not made clear who is responsible for what.
About 1-2 weeks before I got in contact with my flight details and they were extremely pushy about using there taxi service to take me to the apartment. my concern was that I could get a local taxi for 700 Baht and they wanted to charge 1000 baht.
They didn't even collect me from arrivals, I had to call them from outside and look for a wave from the car park.
Was only given 1 key, not great if you are a couple and want to do different things occasionally.
The Apartment is right on the edge of Patong, check the map it is a good 30 min walk to the centre of Patong and the edge of the beach maybe 500 meters away but again its the un-populated part.
Its also located halfway up a very, I mean VERY steep hill.
Currently there is building work next door as a new condominium is being constructed so do not expect any privacy on the rooftop infinity pool.
The apartment is nice inside, for me it was a home away from home but I was concerned about security. There was no way to lock the balcony door, so that left me kind of uneasy.
There was a good stock of plates, glasses, cutlery ect.... (not that I ate in that often)
The WiFi is OK in the living room but not the bedroom, kind of annoying. Plus I was told it was free yet I had to pay for it and claim it back but never got the 500 baht refund when I checked out.
Its not a hotel so no bedding/towels/cleaning is done so you are responsible for all of that.
I kind of wanted the "living as a local" experience, I'm glad I did it but won't be doing it again.
For what it was I felt the price was too expensive so would not recommend or go back to this place.

arrived at our apartment and was delighted to find it was exactly as it was in the pictures. ten minutes walk to bangla road, the beach and jungceylon so ideally placed, although the incline off the main road was rather steep especially in the midday heat.
The security in the hotel is second to none, with there being a barrier just off the main road, then a security guard at the entrance, then to get to the lifts you have to have a key fob to get through the door, and upon arrival at your floor there is another security door for you to use your key fob to get through before being allowed access to the apartments, and your fob will only work on the floor where your apartment is so all very secure.
The only down side to this rental was that when we arrived we were informed that the electricity was to be paid separately and was not included in the rental price and on leaving totalled approximately £50.00. We should had been told of this prior to booking.
A tuktuk or taxi will cost approx. 200baht(£4) down to bangla road / jungceylon, and around 300baht back(£3) so can work out slightly expensive if you do it everyday although I would recommend having the taxi back if its late at night.
