Although this is a modern condo, do not imagine one of those huge amorphous places that you find in cities. This is a country style condo, low rise, with nice open garden spaces and far from the main road. Absolute quiet at nights!
The staff are all very friendly and helpful and like all Thais, they love cats, so there are several very pampered animals for children to play with. If you come for a short break, a car is not neccessary as it is only a short walk to the beach or the village centre, but there is a free shuttle bus if you need it. If you are coming for long enough to explore the island it is probably worthwhile to rent a car or motorbike.
Plenty available. There are a lot of different beaches to choose, some busy with jet skis etc, others quiet and romantic.
For eating, there are several good restaurants in Kamala, including an excellent Italian one, or you can buy provisions in a new supermarket, walking distance away. The kitchen is equipped with all normal cooking facilities.
Patong, the main tourist beach and town, is about 15 minutes by car or taxi along the coast road. Here you find bigger shops, masses of restaurants and at night a mini Bangkok with discos and more than adequate noise!
The apartment itself is very modern and comfortable - about 120 sq m - with a huge master bedroom and glossy modern bathroom. The second bedroom is also also spacious with shower/toilet room. The main balcony is very nice to sit in the mornings or at sunset with a drink. Last time I stayed there, a flight of herons passed by every evening at 6.30pm. The second balcony is off the master bedroom, but I am not sure what to use it for!
The condo has one huge swimming pool and one medium size pool. There is also a well equipped fitness centre and a small restaurant that serves breakfast or snacks and drinks.
