About Karl-Heinz Stumpf
The owners, Marianne and Karl-Heinz Stumpf, have both lived for over 30 years in Moers on the Lower Rhine - near Düsseldorf. In 1989, we came to Hua Hin for the first time and signed an initiative against the first high-rise (now Hilton Hotel). We did not think it was so bad later on and even lived there - and we got to know the Banyan Resort project during a small real estate trade fair. Hua Hin is the favourite resort from Karl-Heinz, the golfer (unfortunately the only one) in the family. Marianne loves shopping in small boutiques, always looks for possibilities to make our house beautiful and likes to meet with friends who live in Hua Hin. Currently, we are only 3-4 weeks a year in Hua Hin, which we want to change to 3-4 months in about 5 years (2018).
Karl-Heinz Stumpf purchased this House in 2009
Why Karl-Heinz Stumpf chose Hua Hin
The Banyan Resort has everything that we need for your holiday: Large, air-conditioned living rooms, large swimming pool directly in front of the terrace, a shaded terrace for eating breakfast, a garden around the house, special conditions for the Banyan Golf Course and all hotel services are available. In 10 minutes you can take a taxi to the city, the beach or the Banyan Golf Course. - Hua Hin is a (still) small tourist city with relatively few "red light offers", for relaxing and swimming as well as a golfer paradise with over 10 golf courses that can be reached within 30 minutes. Since Hua Hin is also the summer residence of the king, it will be a popular holiday destination in the future for many Thai as well.

Nice Place to Stay Outside of Busy Hua Hin
Fairly priced condo in immaculate condition. Owner was easy to communicate with. Nice to be just outside of Hua Him to escape the hustle and bustle.
Perfect holiday villa in Hua Hin.Close enough to the action yet perfect distance outside of downtow.
Beautiful 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa. Stocked with everything you will need. Perfectly clean upon check in and very comfortable and QUIET! We needed a place to stay that was close enough to downtown Hua Hin yet away from the crazy traffic and every growing nightlife (i.e. NOISE). This villa was a perfect solution.
Now there were a couple of issue but nothing that will be a showstopper. First, the toilet in the 2nd bathroom was not functioning properly. Not a big deal as the master bathroom was fully operational.
Second was the internet. The owner's internet was incredibly slow and basically unusable. The Banyan Resort WiFi was great, when it was working. Late at night (midnight to 6am) which is when I was working, the internet was pretty stable but if a solid, high speed internet connection is critical to you, just understand that this is a challenge with this unit. I believe it is more of a limitation within the resort. Note: The resort issues old-style password tickets that are good for 2 devices. I recommend the Banyan Resort upgrade their internet facilities and just make the WiFi free across ALL villas. It would solve alot of issues.
Again, great location. 5 minutes South of Hua Hin and just beyond the water park on the right as you head South.
The long community pool/river outside the back door was great! And the hammock was a nice surprise. We just chilled and relaxed there some evenings for a few hours. Loved it.
All in all, I'd give this villa a 4 out of 5 stars. The only thing keeping it from a full 5 star rating is the toilet issue and for us, the lack of a stable, high speed internet connection. I was unable to maintain Skype calls to my international customers and family during our visit. Other than these two items, the villa is a winner!
Would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it to those seeking a change from the old Hua Hin hotel stay and battling traffic (and noise) downtown.
for your detailled and positiv feedback.
Sorry for the toilet and wifi problems. Meanwhile the toilet is already repaired. Regarding the wifi, we seperated from the Banyan net because of the speed and connection problems, last year, ad installed an own high speed connection for only our guests. Sowe are very surprised by your experience and will contact our provider and asked him, what happend and how we could improve our data speed. Again, thanks for your positiv feedback and testimonial!
Pleased and would stay there again
Very nice villa. It is quiet and the swimming facilities are nice and clean. Housecleaning comes twice a week and do a good job. The restaurant at the resort is convenient and the food is good. If you play golf at Banyan Golf Course the van picks you up and brings you back. I recommend this villa and would stay there again.
Ideales Urlaubsdomizil mit 5-Star-Charakter
Und wieder einmal hatten wir das Glück, einen Großteil unserer Urlaubstage in der "Villa Stumpf" in Hua Hin zu verbringen , dem Besitzer sei Dank, dass er seine Villa zu einem wirklich attraktiven Preis zur Verfügung stellt. Das Banyan Resort ist in dieser Form einzigartig in Hua Hin, es ist großzügig angelegt , bietet den Service eines Hotels und gleichzeitig den Komfort der "eigenen vier Wände". Das Haus als auch die gesamte Anlage war wieder in einem tadellosen Zustand, hier kann man nur Lob aussprechen. Das wird mit Sicherheit nicht unser letzter Aufenthalt in Banyan sein. Beste Grüße, Hans-Georg Löwen
Perfekter Platz zum Relaxen

1017 ist eine Hausnummer
Einfach alles stimmte! das Ambiente, die Ausstattung, die Gegend !
Das Banyan Resort Personal war absolute Klasse. Immer wurde geholfen wo es nötig war.
Es ist sehr angenehm in der Villa zu wohnen, ich hätte sie gerne nach Hause mit genommen. Die Fotos stimmen mit der Realität vollkommen überein, eher noch das es noch besser aussieht als man fotografieren kann.
Alles vorhanden was man braucht. Der vom Vermieter empfohlene Taxifahrer Tom ist der Hammer. da wir nicht zum ersten mal in Hua Hin waren wussten wir wo wir wirklich hin wollten. Wir können diese schön Ferien-Villa nur empfehlen!
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Nochmals vielen herzlichen an den Vermieter Herr Stumpf für seinen Support von der ersten Minute an!
Das freut uns sehr, liebe Familie Pittet, dass es Ihnen so gut gefiel. Sie sind jederzeit wieder willkommen. Bis dahin wünschen wir Ihnen ALLES GUTE!
Hua Hin is 200 km south of Bangkok on the west coast of the Gulf of Thailand. It can be easily reached through a complete highway, but also by airplane or train. The Banyan Resort in which the villa is located is just 5 km south of the city centre of Hua Hin and about 5 minutes (by car) from the beautiful, white beach of Khao Takaib, which you can hike on down to the centre of Hua Hin.
Royal Residence Hua Hin:::::
Hua Hin is the oldest and most traditional resort in Thailand. The summer residence of the king, the old fishing city with the kilometre long beach is one of the most attractive holiday regions for Thai people. During the last ten years, the dreamy city became a holiday destination and attracts visitors from all over the world, many of them from Germany and Scandinavia.
In 1929, during the control of King Rama VII, the Klai Kangwon royal palace was built directly on the beach. Klai Kangwon (this means "without worries" or Sanssouci) is still the official residence of the Thai king where he spent most of his time in the past years. His presence guarantees a strong military and police presence in Hua Hin, which results in controlled city development and few crimes.
Golf paradise Hua Hin:::::
In 1924, the Royal Hua Hin golf course was opened as the first golf course in Thailand. It was the beginning for the leading golf region in Thailand with over 10 golf courses, which can be reached by car within 30 minutes from Hua Hin. This includes two championship courses, one of which is the Banyan Golf Course, which received the "Best New Golf Course in Asia Pacific 2009" award in its first year form the leading golf magazine "Asian Golf".
Dining and shopping in Hua Hin:::::
There are some of the finest hotels in Thailand in Hua Hin. This does not only guarantee a high level of living, but rather also culinary attractions. But small restaurants in the old city and the legendary night market offer healthy traditional Thai cuisine and everything for international tastes. Different night markets offer inexpensive shopping options for tourists and locals. Those looking for a deal can also receive well-known brand name articles during the day in a few outlet centres near the surrounding of Hua Hin.
Attractions in and around Hua Hin:::::
The seven kilometre long beach is the main attraction for people who love to swim and hike on beaches. Pony riding is a characteristic offer for Hua Hin, in particular for children. Of course, you will find different water sport offers, kite surfing, etc. If you are looking for something for your health you will find a large selection of different forms of traditional Thai massage on the beach, but also in the city.
South of Hua Hin are different caves and peaceful beaches that have half-day and whole day excursions offered. As of recently, there is even one of the largest vineyards in Thailand, which belongs to the Austrian Red Bull Group. You can get to know the local wine with a cosy wine tasting. Of course a lot of travel offices in Hua Hin organise day trips to many tourist attractions in Thailand, for example, floating markets, bridge on the Kwai, national parks.
