Baan Wat

Baan Wat, 5 bedroom private Villa in North Pattaya, Pattaya

Villa 11 guests 5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms

Description

Located in a quiet sub-soi (small road) in its own secure compound, this unique hexagon shaped house with its four extending wings gets its name, Baan Wat (lit. temple house), from the sweeping, traditional temple-style roofs atop both the main and caretakers buildings. One can't help but feel the stresses and strain of the world melt away, replaced by a feeling of peace and tranquility, the moment the remote-controlled front gate slides open to reveal the main two-story building set under the shade of towering palms, mature mango trees, and flowering Thai orchids.



The traditional Thai teak door with intricate gold embossed wooden fretwork side panels opens onto the capacious central, circular-shaped slate floor entrance with the feeling of openness and space added to by the towering, cathedral-like pyramid ceiling. This feeling of spaciousness is enhanced by the four wings extending out from the main entrance foyer.



In catering to the needs of people with disabilities, one of the ground floor wings contains a spacious bedroom leading to a luxurious en suite bathroom with separate shower and bath facilities, and a separate walk-in dressing area with inbuilt teak wardrobes. In another of the wings extending from the entrance foyer is the spacious, open-plan kitchen – and what a kitchen it is. This is a kitchen that can easily turn out quick snacks to be eaten at the casual dining setting or, under the control of a skilled cook, capable of turning out any meal imaginable, or cater for large numbers of guests. The marble topped benches provide ample preparation space, while the island cooktop features gas and electric hotplates, an effective exhaust hood guaranteeing cooking smells are quickly and efficiently exhausted outside, and a full-size oven. Just a short walk away is the formal dining room, the focal point of which is a large antique teak wood dining table with seating for 12, with expansive views one way to the inviting in-ground pool and the shady, private garden the other. Complete with its own refrigerated drinks cabinet, bar and fully equipped washroom, the dining room oozes space and charm and is the perfect setting for long, multi-course meals and lengthy mealtime conversations.



The fourth ground floor wing houses the living room, equipped with comfortable over-stuffed lounge chairs and sofas providing views of the shady front garden one way and the crystal-clear in-ground swimming pool to the other, while a 42-inch plasma TV, CD/DVD entertainment system, cable TV decoder and sound-system speakers cater to your entertainment needs. Deep brownish-orange terracotta tiles are used with great effect to contrast with the rich teak balustrade and balusters leading to the first floor, with four wings branching off from the circular walkway.



While each of the upper floor bedrooms is as spacious and impressive as the other, it is the master suite with its oversize 7' x 7' (about 213 x 213cm) four-poster island bed, complete with white linen curtains that can't but impress the most. Each of the four upstairs bedrooms feature one of the four different styles of parquet flooring possible, and all lead to luxurious en suite bathrooms with glass-walled showers, separate bath tubs and luxurious marble wash tables. For the person or people lucky enough to occupy the master suite, the bathroom also contains a large, two person spa-tub. Naturally all rooms on the top and bottom floors are individually air-conditioned, and all bedrooms are equipped with large-screen televisions, cable access, CD/DVD players, and entertainment system speakers.



A fully equipped laundry complete with a large modern automatic washing machine and tumble dryer, building-wide hi-speed wireless internet, ceiling fans in each room, tasteful up and down mood lighting, fully screened and quality fabric curtained windows, and modern security system compliment the rest of the luxurious features and high-quality materials used throughout the house.



For guests who don't wish to make the 10-minute walk to the clear water and white-sand at Wong Amat Beach, the in-ground crystal clear swimming pool located between the dining and living room, with its paved terrace and striking waterfall and fresh water wash-off shower, is the perfect solution. The pool, lawns and gardens, along with general cleaning and security are all taken care of by two Western trained staff who live onsite in their own private, detached accommodation, ensuring the extensive grounds and swimming pool are maintained to the highest possible levels.



While the onsite staff will prepare meals and wash laundry for an additional fee, just a few minutes' walk away guests will find a range of restaurants providing Japanese, Russian, Thai and Swiss meals, in addition to numerous bars, restaurants and entertainment venues at the nearby 5-star Lost World themed resort. Other facilities just a few minutes' walk away include ATMs, 24-hour mini-markets, spas and salons, as well as a stop on the baht bus route providing efficient and cheap travel into the heart of Pattaya.

Mükemmel

5.0 / 5.0
2011 yılından beri her yıl bu villada konaklıyoruz. Bu villa için şöylenebilecek tek şey MÜKEMMEL. Üst katta bulunan 4 odanın hepsi oldukça geniş (her odanın banyosu içinde). Alt kattaki oda aslında çok güzel ve geniş olmasına rağmen yukarıdaki odaların yanında biraz sönük kalıyor. Geniş ve kullanışlı bir mutfak, rahat koltuklardan oluşan oturma odası, 10 kişilik yemek odası (mutfaktaki masa daha rahat olduğundan bu oda pek kullanılmıyor), oldukça freah bir sofa. Çok büyük olmasa da ,serinlemek ve kısa mesafeli yüzme için ideal bir havuz. İngilizce bilmeselerde çok iyi niyetli yardımcı aile. Size ,anayola kadar eşlik eden ve sizi yolda karşılayıp eve getiren sevimli 2 köpek ise ekstra hoşluk katıyor. Olumsuz olarak söyleyebileceğim tek şey ring seferi yapan tuk tuk yolundan yaklaşık olarak 300-400 metre yürüme mesafesinde. Wongamat plajı 300 metre uzaklıkta. 2012 yılında hemen yanına yapılan inşaat başlangıçta bizi tedirgin etmiş olsada, bina tamamlanınca sorun kalmadı. Keyifli bir tatil için en ideal yerlerden birisi. Kesinlikle tavsiye ederim.

Not as good as the comments...

3.0 / 5.0
This was the first time I booked vacation rental through Tripadvisor. I read all the comments of Baan Wat before making the booking and having a very high expectation. I must say it's a little bit disappointing. Of course, price is affordable, when considering there are 5 rooms accommodating 11 of us, with a private pool. However, the interior of the house is poorly maintained and quite outmoded. The kitchen is the worst part. It was smelly! The fridge doesn't function well and not cold enough! Also, I don't understand why there are so many mosquitos. I have to kill over ten mosquitos in the room before sleep. My son got lots of mosquito bites still. Last but not least, they stated there is house keeping service. However, when arrived I was told they only do the house keeping once every two days. I stay for 3 nights, and they also came to do the house keeping once, which I think isn't enough for a house accommodating 11 person. And, when I check out, I was asked to pay THB 200 more because we used the kitchen to cook breakfast. The house keeper said it was too much cleaning for her and had to charge me extra money! To be fair, I know what I am paying. I know this is not a hotel. Maybe, I just had too high expectation after reading the previous comment on this vacation rental. Thus, I just want to express what I experienced for other's reference.

A very nice stay at Baan Wat - with the greatest caretakers! - Beware: MAJOR CONSTRUCTION STARTED BEHIND PROPERTY

5.0 / 5.0
I planned our trip via the Thailand Holiday Homes website. The Property Agent (Paul) responded quickly to my initial inquiry and I ended up booking a week in the house with four other mates for a shared birthday celebration. Paul provided all the check-in details and the house was easy to find. Upon check-in we met the property caretakers (Oui (female) and ??? (male)) and they showed me the electric meter - best thing to do is take a photo of the reading. Now be very careful in this house with electricity usage - no running of a/c units when not there. The house was very big and the pool was outstanding! I did immediately notice that directly behind the property (within 20 feet of the swimming pool) a major construction project was starting. The foundation to the property was laid during our stay. Evidently it's going to be a four story apartment/condo building - which will eventually impact the privacy of the pool area/rear of the house. All the bedrooms were nicely furnished. The kitchen had enough untensils and place settings to cater for our needs. There is a glass fronted beer fridge in the dining room. We had a few parties at the house and even managed to have a relaxing stay. We couldn't say enough good things about Oui and her husband. They cleaned up after us, drove us around during the flood on September 11th and ran a few errands for us. We did have one of the bedroom a/c units fail during our stay, but it was fixed with 48 hours. We hired motorbikes during our stay, so we didn't have to walk the 400 mtrs to Nakula Road to catch a bahtbus into Pattaya. We loved our stay in the house and would consider staying there again, but only when construction behind the property is complete as it did disturb our stay.

Simply Amazing!

5.0 / 5.0
Checking into the Villa with Nueng was a wonderful experience she has a great personality, excellent english and a wicked sense of humour. Neung explained everything very clearly and in detail and showed us around the villa and how everything works. The villa itself was immaculately presented, very spacious and very beautiful. Baan Wat has every mod con you can think of tied in with a traditional theme. The outdoor area was immaculately maintained with the pool sparkling and ready to be swum in. The two onsite staff where very friendly and more than happy to help and take us anywhere we needed to go. The location of the villa is well chosen set amongst the busy hub of Pattaya in your own private compound. If you wish to go out into the nightlife its just a five minute walk down the road and your amongst the business of Pattaya if you choose to relax the seclusion in the private compound is fantastic that you would not know where you were. The villa is also a 5 minute walk to the beach, i highly suggest walking through Centara Grande Mirage at the end of the street on the beach as it is something you will never forget. We were more than impressed with the quality and service of Thailand Holiday Homes and Baan Wat and thoroughly recommend staying there and would do so again.

What more could you want?

5.0 / 5.0
There were 5 of us staying in this magnificent villa. We were there for 7 nights from the end of Jan '11 till 7 Feb '11. The villa met all our needs and more. It has 5 huge bedrooms each with a TV and DVD player and each with an ensuite bathroom and plenty of closet and drawer space. Toon and Vee are the caretakers and took excellent care of us. The villa is located in North Pattaya and away from the noise with a two minute walk through the Centara Grand MIrage to the beach. It always took us longer as we would stop to take pictures at the Centara. There is a Mini Mart less than a minute's walk and plenty of good restaurants in the area. The villa has beautiful lush greenery and the entrance is very special. A bridge over a koi pond with a gong for the doorbell. The front door is beautifully carved wood. The floors are tiled and the atrium has a huge flower pot containing a big tropical plant. There are floor lights shining up all arond the pot and it is a centrepiece for the villa. We all had our own wings containing the bedrooms so privacy was not an issue. The kitchen was very modern and has all that you would need: dishwasher, oven, microwave, refrigerator, kettle, pots, pans......the lot. Laundry has washer and dryer and iron and ironing board. Vee cleaned regularly and would cook simple meals, if requested for a fee. We employed a chef from Erawan Resort and he was excellent. The dishes were 5 star with plenty left over for snacking. The pool is large and nice and cool. There are three lounges and a table with 4 chairs on the area around the pool. There is a beautiful art piece on one side of the pool that used to be a water feature. We ate most of our meals in the formal dining room which had another bath off of it. There is a big table with chairs in the kitchen that can also be used for eating. Each room has its own air-conditioner. The formal lounge is done in white and is quite striking and we would end up falling asleep in front of a DVD on the big screen TV. To save the best for last, is Neung. She is the customer care representative for Baan Wat. She is a jewel and speaks 3 languages, Dutch, Thai and English. She has lived in the Netherlands so has a bit of saavy about her. She has a great sense of humour which is most delightful. She is there for anything you may need and is most interested that her guests enjoy their stay. She was able to get us VIP tickets for Alcazar at the last minute and she found us our chef. The villa is located very close to the new Centara Grand Mirage and must recommend Flames, their outdoor restaurant that does Bar BQ. Spectacular! The villa has wireless internet throughout and a coded lock. The beds are extremely comfy and all the amenities are first rate.
