Overview

Photos and Description of this Kathu holiday villa

10 minutes from Patong and Phuket Town

Beautiful courtyard villa in Phuket set across three separate buildings with three double bedrooms, a tropical garden and a private 14 metre swimming pool with a 6 jet jacuzzi wall. Features of the villa include high speed wireless internet connectivity, a fully equipped kitchen, a 46” LED Smart TV with internet connectivity and integrated sound system, a bar and a private 14m swimming pool. All rooms have air conditioning as well as ceiling fans and all linens and bath towels are provided. All bedrooms have private en-suite bathrooms and there is also an additional wash room in the main building. Managed services are offered to guests such as maid services, shopping service, babysitting, in house massage, aromatherapy, laundry as well as car hire. The management office is located next to the villa and the helpful staff are available to handle any enquiries that you may have. Security guards are on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure piece of mind. The villa is located on the two stunning Red Mountain & Loch Palm golf courses.

Loch Palm & Red Mountain Golf Courses: The villa is located just next to Loch Palm Golf Course and its new 18 hole Sister Course, the Championship standard 'Red Mountain Golf Course' now considered to be the most challenging golf course in Phuket.

Spread over 400 rai (160 acres) of lush, rolling hills, the courses have been carefully designed to blend beautifully with the natural terrain. Nestled below a panoramic range of peaks, the layout surrounds the largest lake on any golf course in Phuket - Crystal Lake. With a gentle breeze and more than 1,400 towering palms lining the fairways, you’re treated to a very scenic course along with the many challenging hazards and greens.

Why Phuket?: Everything that you and your family could need from the famous beaches, Phuket town and Patong, to international shopping retailers, Thai temples and diving and fishing trips are all within 10 minutes drive of the villa. Jump in a speedboat from Phuket and you can be taken snorkeling, diving, or to just enjoy a day lying on the beach and having lunch on one of the many stunning tropical islands in the Andaman Sea.

More on Red Mountain & Loch Palm: The villa is in the grounds of Loch Palm Golf Course and Red Mountain Golf course. Red Mountain is considered the best golf course in Phuket and by some people the best golf course in Thailand. Loch Palm is a lovely course built round two lakes and it is rightly considered the most relaxing course in Phuket with its quiet mountain backdrop. Both courses are in very good condition and Loch Palm is perfect for those of us with a double digit handicap, while the single figure golfers can enjoy the superb challenge provided by Red Mountain. Both clubhouses serve Thai & Western food/drink from 6am to 7pm seven days a week, so you will never go hungry or thirsty when holiday here. Loch Palm club house has a fairly unique feature, with the Driving Range being the lake! with slightly lighter floating golf balls used to make sure they do not disappear forever. Both clubhouses have practice greens which can be used whether or not you are actually playing that day.

Herriot Stobo purchased this villa in 2005

Why Herriot Stobo chose Kathu

The courtyard layout is unique and provides a lot of privacy from the outside world but also to guests staying in the villa at the same time if they just want to relax for a while.

What makes this villa unique

The courtyard villa offers a very relaxing and private holiday, away from the noise of any roads or towns but well serviced by local restaurants and services and only 10 minutes to Patong and Patong beach. Renovated at the end of 2011, the villa is both spacious and very well maintained.

Family Holiday in Phuket

  • 4 of 5

We rented this great home over the Christmas and New Years holiday. The home was beautiful and accommodated our large family very nicely. Herriot, the owner was very professional and helped anwser all our questions and concerns. We really enjoyed staying at the golf course which was amazing, we rented a car and went on day trips to different beaches and sights, then had the privacy of our own place and pool for when we wanted to just spend time with family. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed. The staff at the office had recommended driver Pisit who was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone visiting Phuket who likes a little privacy but would still like to be close to everything!

beautiful, comfortable, relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Phuket from Singapore with my mother and my 5 year old daughter. The villa owner had arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport, who was indeed waiting for us, which was great. After about half an hour drive from the airport we arrived at the villa, which is located in a group of villa's built on the Loch Palm golf course. There is a management office, managing these villa's almost right in front of the villa and the staff there were very friendly and helpful and got us sorted very quickly. The villa looked amazing and especially the pool, which is dark blue, instead of the usual light blue colour, looked very appealing (which proved correct, couldn't drag my daughter out of it during our stay). Villa was built up across 3 buildings, one the large living room and kitchen, with all comforts we needed (tv, dvd, stereo, fully equipped kitchen, large dining table etc) and another with 2 bedrooms and a third building with the largest master bedroom (all with own private bathroom). Rooms were very spacious, beautiful wooden floors, nice large beds and hotel style bathrooms. Vill and our stay there was perfect. We also were able to rent a car via Pisit, owner of a small taxi company and long time service provider for the villa's and management office, very reasonable pricing, fully insured and delivered to the front door. We spent most of our time in the villa to relax and swim, but did some trips to some of the beaches and towns around, all easy to reach by car of taxi. We went for breakfast a few times at the Loch Palm or Red Mountain clubhouse close by, which was very nice and affordable. We also ordered from Loch Palm twice for lunch, they deliver to the door with a golf buggy, good affordable food as well. There was a document with recommendations in the villa for food, sightseeing and activities, very helpful, we tried a few of them as well.

Quiet beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find a beautiful villa, the rooms were very accommodating, the living space was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for 7 of us. Check in was easy even at 10.30 pm, the office staff had the keys ready and showed us around without hesitation. The villa is in a quiet location but just a short drive to the hustle and bustle of Bangla road. We had an awesome time and with the help of pisit the driver, explored plenty of places of the tourist track. The whole experience of booking and paying was smooth and without trouble, Herriot was always in contact with us and also available during our stay which was 23 days. I would recommend any body coming to phuket to consider this villa, it's clean, safe and an awesome playground for adults and children alike. We spent many hours just playing in the pool, such a great place to stay. There are some local eating places and a 7/11 type store a short walk up the road.Phuket town is a short drive in the opposite direction with a big tesco store where you can do food shopping if you wish, there are also lots of other places to explore in Phuket town and a must is the Phuket night market held every weekend. This is all just a short drive away with the added bonus of being quiet at night time so as you get a good sleep. This villa is awesome and worth considering.

Villa in Phuket at Lock Palm golf club

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa. Very spacious. Central location, close to several good grocery stores and shopping. Local market was excellent. Being central you can get to everywhere on the island quite easily. Well maintained gardens. Good size pool. Downsides for us were no TV's in the bedroom, only in the lounge and quite a trek to the beach, mainly due to the traffic. No walkable restaurants, except gold club, but local taxi's and Tuk Tuk' are cheap and easy to book and obtain meaning you can explore the towns of Phuket including their shops and restaurants. We had a couple of maintenance issues and the owner was very responsive and these were resolved very quickly.

Nice Villa, just like at home

  • 4 of 5

We had 8 ppl and were very enjoyable in the villa during our holiday, specially in the sitting room and private pools, very relaxing and I felt like I stayed at home. The villa looks exactly the same as the photos and the price is reasonable. Sure that I will come again when back to Phuket for holiday and will stay longer, 5 days is really not enough to enjoy the villa. Finally, I need to say “Big thanks” to the owner (Mr. Herriot), he is very helpful and gentlemen. Again, thanks for your arrangement. We had a great trip.

Jah Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at Jah Villa in February 2013 and we were very pleased with the choice that we made. The villa is well designed with 3 bedrooms spread across two separate buildings with a third building housing a very large living space, dining area and fully equipped kitchen and washroom. I think that the main building was renovated in early 2012 and as such it is in a great condition with high ceilings, designer lighting and high quality furnishings. The garden is well maintained and has some stunning plants, the pool is a decent size that you can actually have a proper swim in and our children simply couldn’t have been happier with both. The disco lights in the pool also added to the whole experience! We ate at the clubhouses most days and on occasion we had breakfasts delivered which they did at no additional cost which was great (and very lazy on our part!).

We spent a lot more time in the villa than we had originally planned to, it was so peaceful (although we were just 10 minutes from the bright lights of Patong, the location is particularly quiet at night which was great for our group).

The owner was very responsive to all of our requests and he organised minibus airport transfers, discounted golf at Red Mountain and he even arranged for the fridge and cupboards to be stocked with our shopping list ahead of our arrival which was really helpful given that we arrived in the evening. The maids and security guards were all very friendly and loved the children. It was no problem for us to organise taxis with the management office directly next door to the villa, we didn’t hire a car but for groups wanting to do more exploration around the island it would probably be a good idea. Highly recommended!

This Thailand vacation rental villa is located very centrally in Phuket on the Red Mountain & Loch Palm golf courses in the Kathu district. From here you are just 10 minutes from Patong and Patong beach as well as 10 minutes from Phuket town. The Central Festival western style shopping mall and Tesco Lotus and Big C supermarkets are just 5 minutes drive away. Nai Harn beach as the southernmost point on the island is a 25 minute drive from the villa meaning that all locations on the island can be reached within 30 minutes. The golf courses offer world class golfing opportunities for beginners and experienced golfers alike and the two clubhouses provide great options for breakfasts & lunches when guests don't feel like cooking themselves. The clubhouses will also deliver food to the villa at no additional cost. Explore Andaman sea, James Bond Island, the beautiful island of Phi Phi, go fishing for Tuna, snorkel with tropical fish or just find a secluded beach and relax at your own pace.

Golf: The villa is located within the grounds of the Loch Palm & Red Mountain golf clubs in the Kathu District of the island. Home to 2 full 18 hole golf courses, just 7 km from Phuket Town and Patong beach on either side of the island and about 15 minutes from both.

The original Loch Palm course is known as the most relaxing golf course on the island and the new sister course, Red Mountain, clearly described as the most challenging course in Phuket.
