Kalim Beach House
A great place to come on holiday, to enjoy your 'own' beach and yet be close by all the entertainment that Patong and Phuket's west coast can offer, all the time supported by a private staff whose sole task is to make your holiday the best it can be.
The villa is in a fantastic location with spectacular views over Patong Bay. It is a thoroughly modern interpretation of a direct oceanfront beach house, designed to be light and airy, with high ceilings, open living areas and easy transitions from inside to outside. It is finiished to a very high specification with an overarching design ethos of beachside 'cool'. The villa is one of only four private homes on Patong Bay where you can walk out of the villa directly onto the beach. Situated on a small, quiet, golden stretch of sand, yet within easy walking distance of Patong - Asia’s most vibrant beachside resort destination, Patong Beach House offers the perfect fusion of chic relaxation and entertainment.
The beach in front of the house is extremely private. It's tidal nature allows swimming at high tide and exploring the exposed coral rock pools at low tide. One can snorkel beyond the reef 100m off the front of the house. Apart from the odd fisherman in the morning or early evening, it is rare to see anyone else on the sand, making it perfect for a secluded beach holiday.
Patong offers 3km of white sandy beaches within 3 minutes drive or 10 minutes walk. Alternative main west coast beaches such as Surin and Kata are 15 minutes drive. The island’s marinas are between 20 and 30 minutes drive. If you wish to combine a villa and charter yacht holiday, a boat can be moored beyond the reef, directly in front of the villa, in high season.
The Villa Accomodation
The villa, with approximately 350 sq.m of gross area, has three substantial bedrooms, all with fantastic views of the beach and bay and access onto balcony/terrace areas. The two upper bedrooms have large en-suite bathrooms and ample built-in cupboard space. The lower bedroom shares a bathroom with the living areas and has direct access to the swimming pool. outside terrace and beach. The villa is serviced daily by the housemaid, and offers an optional, personal laundry service.
The open-plan living space comprises a stylish kitchen with a large island breakfast bar, and a spacious lounge area with TV and DVD. From this, bi-fold and fully retractable sliding doors allow guests complete access to the covered, open-air dining area, 8.5m x 2.5m, 1.5m deep infinity edge pool and beachside terrace beyond.
As well as the beachside sunbathing deck, complete with sunloungers, there is a spacious 80 sq.m roof terrace on the third floor, with panoramic views of the bay, which provides a great space for relaxing and entertaining. Whilst half of the rooftop terrace is open and ideal for soaking up the rays on the sunloungers provided, the other half is covered by an open sided, modern styled ‘sala’, under which guests can relax day and evening in the oversize sofas. A range of lighting configurations allows gueats to create the ambiance they desire.
Upon arrival, the villa manageress and maid will meet and greet you. The manageress will orientate you to the villa and the local area, restaurants, transport options, etc. She will proviode you the house mobile phone, which has useful numbers in the memory. She will also be ready to answer your questions on best beaches and places to visit. In addition to the complimentary water provided throughout your stay, there will be a welcome drinks pack in the fridge on arrival. If you wish to have a special wine or certain foods awaiting you, then your manageress will be happy to take your pre-order and will do her best to source them for you. There is a safe in the villa for your valuables, passports, etc.
There are various transport options available to you during your stay. The safest and most convenient would be a chauffeured car or minibus, where the stress of driving is removed. However, there are various self drive options available; experience shows that the best rates for these are secured in advance by Internet booking, so do look into these before your stay, if you wish to rent a car and drive yourself. You can easily hail a Tuk tuk (taxi van) which pass frequently along the road behind the villa. Indeed these make going into Patong to party, even late into the night, a very easy experience. Motorbike rentals can be found all over Patong and nearby the villa as well. Please do assess if you are trained and capable to ride a moped before deciding to rent. There is at least one Patong-based company offering limited liability insurance for motorbikes.
The most opulent transport, that fits well with Patong Beach House, would have to be a yacht. In the high season months from late December through to end April/mid May, you will be able to moor a yacht off the reef in front of the villa. Dinghy access direct to the beach house is fine at high tide; at low tide you should come ashore some 200m or so just south of the villa. Custom yacht and speedboat charters can be arranged by your manageress, either in advance or during your stay.
There is a maximum occupancy of 6 guests at the villa. If you wish to have additional day guests, please inform the manageress. The villa is non-smoking throughout.
We are most happy to answer any of your additional questions so please feel free to email us or call. When available, we also welcome potential guests to visit the villa prior to booking to see if it suits their needs.
