About Brian Phillips
I retired to Phuket seven years ago, and am now living the dream , golfing 5 days per week and sailing, surfing or snorkelling on the other two days . The food is wonderful, the climate is wonderful , the Thai people are wonderful , the service is wonderful - what's not to like ?
Brian Phillips purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Brian Phillips chose Karon
Eighteen years ago , I adopted two abandoned baby girls from this area . They are currently at an excellent school in England, but I wanted them to have something to return to if they ever wanted to come to Thailand . Also I wanted to retire here - the weather in England makes my joints ache !

Sun, sea , beaches , golf , food and wonderful people. The land of Smiles - Amazing Thailand

The staff, property, location, and views were all amazing!! If you are going to Phuket this is where you want to stay! My friends and I were 100% satisfied and we are already planning our next trip back to stay in this same property!
I am delighted that Harold and his friends from the USA enjoyed their stay so much in Villa Jasmine that they have decided to come back again . My staff and I love having Americans to stay, they are always charming , friendly and easy to please.
Had a great time staying here with my family. The staff did a great job !!
Very easy as Brian provided detailed information and answered all questions! Staff was excellent at villa and arranged for everything we requested. Excellent chefs! Some memorable meals!
Our staff were very happy looking after Subir and his family, they felt their stay was too short, and we look forward to seeing them again
Relaxing retreat perfect for a family holiday
Truly one of the most relaxing vacations we have had together as a family. The weather cooperated perfectly, and the Villa offered enough space for each to do their own thing when desired.
The property was beautiful and comfortable, but the best part was the attentive staff, the daily meals prepared for us, and the little things like calling for a taxi or massage, and being flexible to our schedule, which formed daily with almost no up front planning. Very impressed with the cooking, and the chefs taking our orders in the morning, then shopping during the day for the freshest ingredients, and having the meals prepared for us when we arrived from activities throughout the area. We saved considerable money and avoided stress by not having to worry about restaurant reservations and coordinating our group's logistics.
Not sure when we will be back to Thailand, as we have much more exploring to do in Asia while I am posted in Taipei. We have used many VRBO apartments and homes in the past, but having the chefs and staff available during our stay is something we will look for in future family retreats.
Thanks for opening your home for families like ours.
My staff and I were delighted that Joe and extended family enjoyed their stay in my Villa Jasmine . We just love pleasing our guests, and I have sent a special thanks to our staff and chef. We hope to see Joe and family again soon.
Best wishes Brian Phillips , OWNER.
Relaxing with stunning views
After several days of trekking all over Thailand, Brian's house and staff were a little piece of heaven. We arrived in Phuket exhausted from an early morning flight from Chiang Mai and were greeted at the airport by a driver who brought us to the house where we enjoyed a full breakfast and massages arranged by Noy, the amazing concierge. She also helped us arrange transportation to Freedom Beach and to the airport and ferry when the 8 of us went our separate ways a few days later. The pool and the views were stunning, and the bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I go back.
It was great to be able to give Cameron and his friends a relaxing luxurious villa to recuperate from their very energetic trip around Thailand. We hope to see them for longer next time
Fantastic Holiday made by the accomadation & staff
We had a beautiful stay & can’t wait to come back. We travelled with 4 adults & 2 children & from the very beginning our stay was perfect. We stayed at Villa Jasmine which was the best holiday we have ever had. From the beginning after booking our accommodation, Brian was fantastic, always responding promptly to our emails & any questions, he even arranged prior to arrival for distilled water to be available as my husband needed this for a CPAP machine. We were greeted late at night by Nuch & Moi who could not have been more attentive of our needs. They made us feel extremely welcome & could not have done enough for us. They had drinks & light snack available for us on arrival & in the morning had a beautifully cooked breakfast for us. We stayed in for dinner 6 out of the 7 nights as their cooking was by far the best Thai meals we had all ever had with food being so fresh & tasty with a good variety of options. On departure we were extremely surprised at the bill with food only coming to $56 per night for the 6 of us (4 adults & 2 children). We were introduced to Noi the villa manager the morning after we arrived, we were given a phone while we were in Phuket to contact Noi who was available 24hrs a day, she was wonderful & always extremely helpful with information, booking transport & arranging for massages ect to arrive at the villa. Noi also gave us the comfort that if we were out & ran into trouble we could call her to help us out with the locals. The villa was kept immaculate by Nuch & Moi & nothing was ever too much trouble. They were wonderful with our 2 kids aged 4 & 7, since leaving our children have said they really missed both Nuch & Moi. Whilst Nuch & moi lived at the villa throughout our stay, we still felt we had total privacy as though we were there alone, but as soon as we needed anything they were always available & happy to help where needed. The pool was cleaned every morning & was spotless. Drinks & snacks were stocked daily & always in good supply & at really cheap prices. We plan to come back next year & wouldn’t even consider looking around to see what else was available as the villa & staff were wonderful & could not be faulted. Thank you for such a wonderful stay & look forward to seeing you on our return next year.
My staff and I are always delighted when guests really enjoy their stay in one of my villas, and we especially appreciate it when they take the time to write a review. Many thanks Karen, and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Villa Jasmine is absolute paradise!
My stay at Villa Jasmine was my third in five years. Once again, everything was outstanding. I can't wait to return!
The staff takes amazing care of you. The meals they cooked were better than I've ever experienced in Thai restaurants in the U.S. The also did a nice job arranging a western style dinner for us on our final evening - grilling steaks, chicken and prawns poolside. We were consistently well stocked with beverages of our choice -- wine, beer, vodka, whiskey and mixers - whatever we asked for, they obtained it and only charged us cost as promised.
The activities in the area were also top notch. The location of the villa is perfect to be in a central location and have access to activities all over Phuket. The masseuses that Noi arranged to visit the home were very skilled and prices were incredibly low. The nearby golf courses are a treat to play and Kata beach is spectacular (if you can tear yourself away from the relaxing Villa Jasmine pool).
The layout of the villa is perfect for a large group given the open living / kitchen /dining area upstairs near the pool and all bedrooms downstairs (each with their own bathroom). A strong and consistent wifi signal can be obtained throughout the entire villa - helpful to be able to keep up with work and access the internet.
The combination of perfect accommodations and incredibly caring staff makes for absolute paradise!
My staff and I are always delighted when guests enjoy their stay and take the time to write a review.
We find happy guests are easy to please , and give us all a great feeling.
Best wishes, and we look forward to seeing them again soon.
The villa is situated in a quiet area in the gentle hills about 1 mile from the beautiful beach at Kata. The villa faces west over the Ocean and there are magnificent sunset views from the infinity pool. Kata has the world renowned Boat House Wine and Grill Bar , particularly famous for its wine list and superb food!
From November to April (approximately) the sea is flat calm and all types of boats can be hired, from long boats to jet skis and para rides. There is also excellent snorkelling and diving . The remainder of the year there is superb surf and all types of boards can be hired, from body boards to Malibou!
Other Activities: snorkelling, all beach activities - 'the best beach on Phuket'
Golf: Two magnificent golf courses, LOCH PALM and PHUKET COUNTRY CLUB nearby. Reservations, caddies, carts clubs, transport and reduced green fees can all be arranged.
LOCH PALM has a magnificent 18 hole course with a second 18 holes being completed in 2006
PHUKET COUNTRY CLUB has a beautiful 18 hole course and a superb 9 Hole LAKES course which must be the prettiest in Phuket (and one of the most difficult off the back tees).
