Very nice place & good value
This condo was very modern & clean, although a little small, especially the bathroom was pretty tight quarters for 2 people. The complex was very nice with a regular pool on the ground floor & an infinity pool on the roof. The location is pretty central--2 blocks from the beach (but long blocks). A lot of restaurants nearby, as well as 7/11 stores. The only drawbacks would be that there were no beach/pool towels, the plates provided were very small, and you need to buy a roll of paper towels for washing dishes, etc. I did speak with the owner's liason about that, so maybe they will take care of it. If you're into snorkeling/scuba diving, Patong is a bit of a drive (about an hour) from the docks where the boats leave from to go to the Phi Phi Islands & Phang Na bay. It's on the west coast of Phuket & those places are all off the east coast.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am glad overall you enjoyed your time at my condo/ grounds . Let me address the few points you mentioned above. We are a bit spoilt in the USA as everything here is much bigger than most places around the world . The bathroom is a standard size for 2 people with quite a decent size shower compared to other condos/hotels in the area, it’s rare you find two sinks in a bathroom outside of the U.S.and most are designed more for one person at a time. The plates in the kitchen are a standard size for Asia / Europe and paper towels are not used in Thailand. The dishes should be washed and left to dry naturally. The beach towels should have been supplied along with regular towels prior to arrival . As soon as you contacted my local host she informed me that the towels were delivered right away including an extra towel for the one that you had misplaced. Patong is an area known for its nightlife shopping and the many things to do. The areas where the boats leave for the island tours, scuba are quite remote and tourists normally do not choose to stay on that side of Phuket Island as it’s more for locals.
Phuket was the start of our 1 month SE Asia journey and staying at the Deck really set the tone of our trip. The Deck is conveniently located ...only a few minutes walk to Patong beach, a wide delectable array of restaurants and Bangla Street. My bf and I thoroughly enjoyed everything that awaited us outside —a plethora of fruit stands and street food vendors. Although there is quite a hustle and bustle outside, surprisely the Deck is quite insulated from the street noise. The only thing that woke us up was the call to prayers at the nearby mosque followed by church choirs at the nearby church...but we didn’t mind as it was nice to hear/see the varying religions living in harmony.
Gareth, owner, made it easy for us to navigate the neighborhood by providing very detailed recommendations prior to us checking in...the information was greatly appreciated. His best advice, however, was to use Chonita, his local property manager of sort. She coordinated our transportation to and from the airport, our tour to James Bond island and a city tour to Big Buddha and Old Phuket night market with a patient and kind personal guide named Min (I love Min!). She often checked in on us to ensure we had all that we needed and offered suggestions to make our stay even better. Her assistance made our time in Phuket effortless as she freed us from having to plan out details.
If we had stayed longer than our 5 days in Phuket, we might’ve taken advantage of the amenities such as pool/gym at the Deck. With everything that Phuket has to offer...it’s hard to stay inside. But when we did, the room itself was very well maintained and provided us with all we needed to be comfortable ... also offered were beach towels and umbrellas! We very much appreciated the 24 hour security...there was always a guard on duty and so we felt very safe staying at the Deck.
We only have positive remarks for our time in Patong and at the Deck...so of course we highly recommend booking at this property. And to make for a more carefree time...make use of Gareth’s recommendations on local eats and his advice to use Chonita’s services!
Nice, quite & secure studio apartment
The Deck turned out to be a good choice for our stay in Phuket (Patong). This was about our 6th or 7th visit to Phuket, so we were familiar with the location before we arrived. It is close to many good places to eat. The street seafood restaurants are quite close and that was usually where we ended up for our evening meal.
For this specific rental we experienced super prompt responses both from the owner and The Deck for any question or request we made. I would highly recommend this rental if you are ok with not having an ocean view. (You can always go to the beach!). Since it's a studio apartment you can either eat in or eat out. Refrigerator is good sized (holds a lot of beer!) and the air conditioner works great. Wi Fi in the room worked great also.
