Property type villa

About the property

3 bedroom Loft Duplex on a prime beachfront location,Mai Khao Beach Phuket

Black Pearl is in Baan Manhassajahn on a beachfront location. Facing west out to panoramic Andaman sea views and beautiful sunset. This vacation duplex has full character with Funky Loft architecture combined with colonial style blends and Asian-Tropical influenced interiors, built in 2 levels.

Black Pearl Phuket offers ultimate privacy. All areas in the duplex have beautiful Andaman sea views. Large pool terrace is great for BBQ parties or family activities. Even if the large long edged pool is shared, you will feel as though its a private pool as it is not normally occupied by other 2 owners for 11 months in a year.

Services will be provided by live-in caretakers, one lady for cleaning and cooking and one man for general works and security. They live downstairs but do not speak English. Thai meals can be arranged and cooked with up to a 6 hours advance notice. This is arranged through the house keeper, directly. A menu is available in the house. Payment made in cash to the cook in advance to shop at fresh markets. Her cooking is delicious.

Two pet dogs live here. They are very friendly and love children but can be secured away from you if preferred.

There are three bedrooms. Each bedroom has a large queen or king sized bed. All rooms have attached bathroom and see views.

There is indoor dining options but mostly diners tend to eat on the side balcony to catch cool ocean breezes.

There is a large flat screen TV with satellite connection but there is no stereo as nothing beats the sound of waves crashing on the beach. But you are welcome to bring your own portable speakers. Free, strong wifi throughout.

Staying in the designer's house. : The Black Pearl Phuket, Owned and built by award winning designers, The Black Pearl has been voted by magazines as one of the top ten most livable residences in Thailand.

The furniture is antique and rustic, the floors and kitchen are polished concrete. All designed to make a relaxed, carefree beach holiday.

Far more personal than any hotel: modern and chic at the same time cozy and comfortable. Indoor flows smoothly to outdoor living and you cannot be getting closer to the beach than this. Imagine yourself with a glass of bubbly watching the sunset. It happens only at The Black Pearl.

About Baan Mahassajahn

I live in Bangkok. My partner and I designed and built the property that we share with friends. I get to visit Phuket as often as possible.

Baan Mahassajahn purchased this villa in 2007

Why Baan Mahassajahn chose Mai Khao

The Black Pearl is right on the beach facing the sunset. The beach is long and usually quiet. Its also close to the airport which cuts down on travel time and we dont get any air traffic noise. There's lots of space for a group to be together and still have privacy. The kitchen is great for communal cooking. This is where we plan to retire.

What makes this villa unique

We love the sunsets the most. Sitting in the pool all year round, any time of the day or night is a real luxury. And watching a magnificent sunset? You cant get better than this.

Amazing Space - great view - very interesting nevi

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful six nights at this very interesting and large house... DEFINITELY the better end of the Island to stay in... quiet, more authentic, less tourists, and the three best beaches are within a 15 minute drive... including the beach in front of the house. The housekeeper made our visit extra special as she cooked up a storm... the style is very modern - may not be for everyone... but we had fun... and the pool is a total delight

Splendid villa right across from the beach

  • 5 of 5

This designer villa works very well for a group of friends or a big family. It is splendid and well equipped. The living area opens on a panoramic terrace which extends onto an infinity pool offering amazing sunset views. The bedrooms, all with en suite bathroom, are very cosy. The villa is conveniently located within a few minutes from the airport.

Pom is a great host, quick with emails and forthcoming with any information that you would require. He had a great list of recommendations that we followed and thoroughly enjoyed. He also had a rental car delivered to the villa that we let at the airport before leaving Phuket. I recommend this villa and Pom to anyone who would like to enjoy Phutet's many attractions and come back to a calm nest.

Beautiful home, sound of the waves - bliss!

  • 5 of 5

The first thought when we arrived to the villa was "it doesn't look as good as the photos. What have we done!" Within an hour we just fell in the love with the place.

The villa is set right by the beach - just a small lane separating the villa from the sand, used by a few locals riding their mopeds. It has a huge pool, lots of places to lounge. The free wi-fi was very handy as we still had to do a few hours work each day. There is no house phone. There is air con throughout the house but we only used it in the bedroom. There was satellite TV, CDs and quite a few DVDs.

The large kitchen has everything you need for self catering. There were a few basics left in the fridge that came in handy. We slept in the bedroom closest to the front door. We had the best nights' sleep. The king size bed was comfortable, nice clean cotton linen, and air con was quiet. Best of all was the sound of waves lulling you to sleep. The en suite was large but a bit tired. We could have used one of the other two bedrooms both of which have much nicer bathrooms. Plenty of hot water, the shower was spacious and good water pressure so we were happy.

The house was kept very clean. Keow (the maid) was lovely and she cooked a couple delicious meals for us. We don’t speak Thai so make so we downloaded an app–very handy! It was nice and comforting having her and the family living on site. Pak was easy to contact. He helped me organise some of the best massages I’ve had in ages.

We love dogs so having Nil, Singa and Panda hanging around us made us feel even more at home.

The airport isn’t far away so there is a little bit of air traffic noise. However it wasn’t enough to disturb our peace.

Don’t even think about staying here unless you are prepared to drive. Mai Khao Beach is a bit isolated and unless you are a strong swimmer stick to the pool. If you want western shopping then Tesco is 15km away, otherwise there are lots of local shops nearby. Phuket Town is about 45km away. The 5 star resorts are up the road and there is a local bar/restaurant called Cinnamon that serves western version of Thai food a few minutes away. Lots of real local food available.

It’s the only place we’ve ever stayed where we want to go back. You must keep in mind that it is someone’s home –just like your house is your home. It’s not manicured to an inch of its life like a resort. It is someone’s beautiful home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Black Pearl, Phuket, Thailand

  • 5 of 5

Black Pearl is the ideal place for families to stay in the region of Phuket Thailand. The setting is spectacular, overlooking Ao Nang Beach. The website is a very accurate description of just how spectacular this accommodation is. The kids loved the pool and loved having their own large bedrooms. The available maid service was very efficient and helpful and so was the manager. The location is close to Phuket airport and to most of what Phuket has to offer, but I'd recommend hiring a car which the manager was also very helpful with. However, if you just want to "Get away" from it all, this is the ideal place, as it's far enough from the tourist crowds of some of the more popular beach resorts of Phuket. If you want to Party and go "Clubbing" then this place may not be for you, but if you want an ideal vacation villa for a family reunion or family holiday, this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Again...Thanks for staying with us! We hope you had an enjoyable time at Black Pearl. Just a small one to correct on your review is that our place is facing Mai Khao beach and Andaman Sea (not Ao Nang beach/ Ao Nang beach is in Krabi ;D). Please think of us again when you plan a trip to Phuket!

Black Pearl

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous 3 weeks were spent at the Black Pearl in March 2012, with my wife, dog and I. Housekeepers, Kyaw and Ray made us more than welcome and were very discreet. Kyaw was a fantastic cook and would produce fantastic dishes at short notice if we desired. Lovely dogs at the villa Pepper and Singh made our own dog very welcome and no conflicts whatsoever. They both wanted to accompany us on early morning and evening walks along the beach. We had a fantastic time and look forward to returning. Everything organised superbly by Pak the agent. He gave excellent info on car hire, dentists, vets etc, etc.

The best place I have evr stayed!!!!

  • 5 of 5

There is not enough words to describe what a wonderful place this was. I have with several friends rented private homes around the world Black Pearl was the most beautiful place I have stayed. It was everything that was described and more. Pak was very helpful with everything from where to shop to renting a vehicle. It was quite, serene, beautiful well kept an incredible amount of room.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to cook a meal or entertain.

The caretakers were friendly, kind and very helpful.

The beach was incredible the pool was more than expected.

Very clean, beds were very comfortable.

If you are looking for quiet and time away from the hustle of the world this is the place to be.

You should rent a vehicle if you want to tour around.

This will be the place I return to if or when I come to Thailand again.

Being from Canada the flight is long and expensive but once at the Black Pearl it is well worth it.

Thank you to Pak
