About Fergus Barnett

Hi,

I live in north west London and work in media and advertising as the day job. I bought the place back in 2009 off-plan and it was completed in early 2010.

It's been a great little project for me and my guests generally seem really satisfied. Luckily I use a dedicated management company out in Phuket to keep the villa in good condition and look after my guests.

Fergus Barnett purchased this villa in 2010

Why Fergus Barnett chose Phuket

I had been to phuket a couple of times - the first was at the tsunami time when I was actually with my family on a speedboat on the way to phi phi. We were very lucky to say the least. Since then I've had a bit of an affinity with Phuket and the people (and food!).

In 2009 I started looking at investing in a villa. This was actually the only one I would buy. If I didn't get the price I needed for this then I wouldn't have bought any other. I think it's down to two things.

First, I just loved the architecture. Although balinese in design it look perfectly at home amongst the rubber plantations and palm trees. I really liked the pitched roofs and the ceiling that gives in the master bedroom. I also really liked the way all the doors open up fully to the outside so it feels like one space. Also the pool is just amazing. It stays warm all year but it's just cool enough to offer relief on a really hot day.

Secondly, I think the location is great. I won't lie, being right on a lovely beach would have been better but it would have cost more than double. Although this spot in Rawai is a bit out the way, I figure if you are going to want a hire car to get around and taxis in the evening then you might as well be in a really quiet area that's a bit further out. It's still only a few minutes from beaches and restaurants but, day and night, it's so quiet and peaceful at the villa. Just standing around in the pool with a beer can be pretty special...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful villa in quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa set at the end of a private road. Felt very safe & secure there. Off the beaten track so you will need car/ bike .

Lovely to wake up & open the doors to the pool for a swim every morning .

Good AC units in all rooms .

Plenty of space .

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls holidays in Phuket and stayed at Fergus's villa for 5 days.

It was great to have a private pool and wake with such a lovely view into the garden!

Enrico has also been really helpful to help us out with few taxi and car arrangment!

Definitely recommend to rent a car and drive around the island.

We also spotted few street markets opened few days a week for less than 10minutes drive from the house on the main road where you get the most authentic, yummy and cheapest food, definitely recommend to check it out!

Thanks again for the lovely stuff and making our stay enjoyable!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks again Fergus for an amazing trip! Met my fiance here after months apart and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting. The villa was even better in person. Everything is immaculate and the cleaning staff, pool dude and gardener keep everything above standard. The location to me is ideal as you are a short drive to the bars, crazy nightlife (Patong) if you choose, but far enough away that at the end of the day, you can get away from it all.

The EasyHome staff, especially PJ, went out of there way to help us with locating restaurants and amenities, finding us the best deals on excursions and even brought us local food twice...very impressed with the service!

The villa is a bit off the beaten path so I would suggest a car but to me that's what makes this villa quiet, peaceful and better than most. I would definitely recommend this place to families, friends and couples as Thailand is a place where any type of vacation is availalbe to you...whatever you want to make of it!

Thanks again Fergus for a wonderful stay and I'm looking forward to a repeat in the future..

Your own piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! We've been to Thailand many times but this was by far the best place we've stayed. The villa is immaculate and well proportioned. It's hard to beat waking up every morning and being a few steps from your own private pool.

The villa is in a small development that is surrounded by a rubber plantation meaning it's the perfect peaceful escape for a couple.

However Rawai, where the villa is based, is close enough to all of Phuket's main attractions. The night life is a short taxi away and there are some stunning restaurants within walking distance.

We took the chance to go scuba diving from a local company in Rawai. It's a great spot for diving with lots of different sites. We saw leopard sharks, turtles and some beautiful lion fish.

Overall I can't recommend this place enough. Arranging the trip was very easy and the owner was more than happy to ask our questions and give suggestions on what to see. We'll definitely be back!

Affordable Luxury Tropical Break

  • 5 of 5

Simply amazing, was completely blown away.

The villa was superb, modern and maintained to an excellent standard. Everything you could want from a holiday rental was provided for and anything extra was no hassle for the management staff at Easy Home Phuket. From being collected from Phuket International airport to having our hirecar ready and waiting for us when we arrived at the Villa.

Being based in Chalong all the main attractions were very close by. We got in a round of golf, made several trips to the glorious Nai Harn and Kata Noi Beaches, took a ferry over to Phi Phi for a couple of days and went out for a scuba trip with one of the local divemasters. Arranging all of this was made easy with access to free Wi-Fi at the Villa.

Overall we had a very relaxing couple of weeks, to get the most out of what is on offer I would recommend hiring a car if you plan to spend time away from the villa.

I will definitely be coming back

Book this villa if you can!

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to write a review to anyone who is considering booking this villa - We sadly missed out to book this for Christmas next year however the inbetween process before the booking could not have been more seamless. Fergus clearly knows how to look after prospective clients and he gave us details in terms of local gyms, spa's etc as well as information about the local area even before we had committed. His client care skills are great and we can compare this against many luxury holidays we have taken and one most recently, which claimed itself to be 5* and was so far removed as a result of many things, but most notably the way we were treated by the owner of the villa. We have managed to find another villa for Christmas 2012 but I urge you to seriously consider booking this villa as its gorgeous on paper and have no doubt it would live up to expectations.
