About Brian Phillips

I retired to Phuket three 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 Phuket

Twelve 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 !

What makes this villa unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Brian,



My family has just spent a wonderful carefree, relaxing holiday in your lovely Villa Jasmine.



We had a superb holiday and were thoroughly looked after by your welcoming and hard working staff.



Khan Noi was available at phone request and very helpful with all requests. Ros and NokNoi’s cooking and housekeeping were exceptional and allowed us total relaxation as well as being well fed!! We felt no need to venture out for our meals as we had the opportunity with your menu list to try something different every day/night.



Your airport transfer driver was also wonderful.



We have already started to spread the good news about your Villas and highly recommend them to

family and friends. We hope to have the opportunity to stay with you once again.



You cater well for the infants' needs also but we didn't take a stoller/pusher with us,this may be a handy addition to offer at the villa but overall a fabulous stay.



Thankyou and kind regards

Fantastic Holiday made by the accomadation & staff

  • 5 of 5

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.

Villa Jasmine is absolute paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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!

A fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we contacted the owner, everything went exceptionally smoothly. The description of property was very accurate. Exceptionally well maintained. The owner provided excellent communication right up until we left for our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble and we were treated like Royalty. The housekeeping staff cooked up magnificent meals for us and were more than willing to make sure everything was there for us to have a lovely holiday. The only thing that was a concern was that the tiles around the pool were exceptionally slippery when wet. With a toddler and 5 year old we had to be extremely careful as they had quite a few falls just walking. No problems when dry though and never detracted from the property. The housekeepers seemed to appear and dissapear with no invasion on our privacy. I would have loved to take them home with us. Recommended stay in a very relaxing atmosphere for families. I would definately recommend this property to anyone. We ate our meals at home at night and of course the magnificent breakfasts because why go out when Khun May cooks such fabulous Thail food. We will return.

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).
