We are a group of 5 persons and we wanted a bedroom for each, hence the choice of the villa. Indeed it has 4 wonderful bedrooms : one master bedroom with private bathroom and terrasse, one 2nd bedroom with private terrasse, one 3rd bedroom more common which shares a bathroom with the 2nd bedroom, and a 4th bedroom on the ground floor with direct access to the swiming pool. The 5th bedroom is on the basement with private bathroom and private entry.
There are TV on 3 of the bedrooms but with dvd only (no tv channels). The TV on the living room has access to satellite tv. A maid cleaned the house every day. And the manager, Mrs Khun Pond, can be joined by mobile phone very easily for any problems.
The basement is very very huge ! With a washing machine and a drying machine.
The pool is 1.5m deep (same level) with a mini jacuzzi, the sala where we had most of our lunch and dinner is equipped with a music system.
Great for relaxing/BBQ around the pool ! From the villa the view is great. On the top of a hill and giving to the west, we have a view to Chalong Bay, and marvelous sunsets.
The villa has a quick access to the beach (5mn walk): sand beach but quite dirty (with cans and bottle necks, from Chalong Bay, certainly !), on the left side of the beach : rocks with crabs and small fishes. There are several restaurants at 15 to 30 mn walk from the villa. But we prefer to cook our meals ourselves. While visiting Phuket Town or Patong we also went to supermarket (Big C, Tesco Lotus).
The villa is quite secluded (don't even think of walking to the nearest shop ! 1 hour walk minimum, composed by hills with slopes at 30%). The taxi service just below the villa is quite expensive. So I would advice for another taxi service : Mr Prasat is THE man to contact - very kind, very professional, knowing perfectly the area [he has a guide license], and has reasonable price.
In overall I highly recommend this villa : beautiful villa (the photos are not "photoshoped". No need !) well equipped, wonderful view.

There is so much more that can be said but not much more that needs to be said than that.
For two months our family enjoyed the breathtaking views and wonderful Thai hospitality that the Glasshouse afforded us. It was a home away from home in a world that we grew to love. Comfortable, private and beautiful.
The only problem I have recommending it, is that it might make it more difficult for us to enjoy it again!
Thanks for the memories

We spent a week at the Glass House and I believe there is no other way to describe the house than absolutely perfect. The house itself, the interior, the surroundings, the beach and the great beach restaurants nearby, the pool, you name it.
I actually planned to do some sightseeing and perhaps check out a couple of real estate agents, but ended up spending almost all of my time at the house. Highly recommended for those who really want to take a step back from the rat-race and just simply want to experience what life is all about.
michael zimmerman (December 27th, 2010) - rating 86%Just said goodbye to the Glasshouse after a fabulous stay. The house itself was magnificent - spacious, airy, beautifully light and elegantly furnished. It's a great space to share with friends or family. The real star of the show was the view from almost everywhere in the house over the pool through the palm trees and across Chalong Bay. It's breath-taking day and night. A big thank you to Khun Pond and her team for looking after the place and us so kindly and efficiently. This was our first visit to Phuket and we loved it, especially the sunset at Prom Tiep, the amazing Big Buddha, the bustle of Phuket old town (with some great restaurants) and driving home back to the calm lushness of Cape Panwa. We loved the local market which is less than 10 minutes drive from the house and the fact that our biggest decision was whether to cook in the internal kitchen, the Thai kitchen at the back or on the huge barbecue by the pool.... Altogether - a treat!
sun james (December 17th, 2010) - rating 76%The glasshouse is a beautiful villa in a stunning setting. It's spacious and light inside, surrounded by well maintained grounds full of floral interest year round. It also has a comprehensive entertainment system that delivers music to virtually any part of the house and poolside gazebo. We especially enjoyed sipping cocktails in the infinity pool while watching the sun set over the horizon. The villa is a short walk down to either of two beaches, both fairly quiet though with a number of beach-side restaurants and bars to choose from. A number of interesting activities are within easy reach, including yachting at the other side of the harbor and shopping at Central. It's just as you imagine paradise to be like, and we enjoyed every minute of our two week stay. Highly recommended.
hibbert david (December 17th, 2010) - rating 76%The villa is fantastic offering resort style luxury while providing the comfort and privacy of being in your own home away from home. The sweeping views over Chalong Bay and to the giant Buddha in the west are stunning. While the beaches, markets and other shopping are easy to get to I was more than content floating around the Infinity pool soaking up the tropical surrounds.
mr. dewey choy (August 21st, 2010) - rating 86%Dewey Choy, London - 10th August 2010 This is the most beautiful house with 4 big bedrooms, can easily accommodate 10 people. The layout is simply spacious and welcoming, it leads you to the swimming pool and the sun set view straight from the front entrance. It's beautifully furnished and well maintained. Just about 1 minute walk to the beach. The other side of peninsula is the yacht club. Major shopping at Central with all different restaurants, department stores and cinema, it's conveniently located in the best quite place in Phuket next to the Chalong Bay. It's perfect for a group of 5-10 and family, highly recommended to anyone.
