About Anne Barlow
My husband and I are Australians currently living and working in Dubai. We regularly visit Thailand and have become very fond of the Thai people, their relaxed way of life and their happy and positive attiudes. We also love their country with its varied and intesting culture, and its lush and picturesque scenery.
Anne Barlow purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Anne Barlow chose Hua Hin
We chose Hua Hin because it is a quiet and peaceful provincial area and a great 'getaway' My husband is a golf fanatic, and I am a beach goer and a sea and sun lover, so it was inevitable that we would buy in a city known, not only for its beautiful beaches but also for its many golf courses. Hua Hin is a popular getaway for Thais, only being pleasant two and a half hours drive from Bangkok. The King's Summer Place is located on the outskirts of the town. Hua Hin itself is famous with foreigners and Thais for its unique long stretch of scenically beautiful coastline, the natural parks and wildlife sanctuaries. It also boasts a huge number of great restaurants where one can appease one's palate with tasty varieties of Thai and European cuisine.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is within easy driving distance of beaches, golf courses and innumerable restaurants, and is approximately 10-15 minutes from the centre of Hua Hin. From the balconies one can view the surrounding lush vegetation, hills, and Thai rural life. The villa is located on a well maintained compound providing 24 hour security. Also on the compound is a club house, gym, and communal pool. There is a small mini mart cum restaurant which will provide home cooked meals on request. The villa has its own private salt water pool and sala, plus large terraces and sun beds where lazy days can be spent soaking up the sun.

Wonderful Thailand Villa
My husband and I and two children 12 and 9 have just returned from our holiday in Hua Hin. We chose this villa as it had the the number of bedrooms we required and a pool and was great value. The villa lived up to the photos and description. The salt water pool was amazing and the lush garden was a tranquil pace to relax. The villa itself is roomy and beautifully furnished. The booking process was easy and informative and Anne was quick to respond to queries and also to arrange airport transfers and a hire car. (A hire car is a must.)
There were plenty of towels for use inside and around the pool and the kitchen well stocked with essential utensils.
Philip met us on arrival and showed us around. We enjoyed our chats with him during our stay answering any questions we had and telling us about the local area.
All in all we had a wonderful holiday and highly recommend this lovely villa. Our thanks to Anne and Philip. :)
Thank you Barby. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to have you and your family in our villa Please come back again!
A lovely, spacious, modern 3 bedroom / 4 bathroom pool villa with all the amenities you would need.
Great villa, beautiful decor, everything you need to enjoy your stay. Good comms from the owner, who went out of her way to accommodate an extra day and extra guests. No hesitation in recommending. Suggest a car is required, as a little off the main drag - in fact, a hire car works out cheaper than taxis so makes perfect sense.
Thank you Steve and Wilaiwan for your review and kind comments. It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay. Please come back again soon.
Nicely furnished, large, safe and secure property - great for holiday
A nicely furnished, large, safe and secure property not too far from most amenities. We had a very pleasant stay here for 10 days over the Songkran Thai New Year period.
The house is all as seen in the photos - double storey, 3 bedrooms upstairs all with en-suites, and a terrace overlooking the hills. The master bedroom has a very comfy king sized bed with a bar fridge and access to the upstairs terrace via sliding doors. Lot's of linen & towels etc. Downstairs is a large open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area with a full bathroom including shower, and a study/TV room with a medium sized flat screen TV and leather lounge chairs. Underneath the main house is a large laundry room with a washing machine. The kitchen is fully equipped and has microwave, oven, large fridge and all cooking utensils, including a jaffle maker, toaster, kettle, etc. On the front porch is a new exterior lounge suite facing the small garden. At the side is a 7m x 4m pool with a Jacuzzi/spa - the pool lights work and so does the spa pumps. The pool is at quite a lower level than the house and access is by a flight of 7 steps. In fact there are a lot of steps around as the property is on a sloping block and there are no railings on the big steps so you need to be able bodied.
The property is in a project of about 100 other houses of similar construction built around 9 years ago. All the gardens are mature and well maintained - it all looks very nice. There is a 24x7 manned gate to the complex and a security patrol at night. There is a communal pool at the 'clubhouse' on the project which is around 10m x 30m x 1.5m and is clean and well maintained for lap swimming etc. There is also a gym and a place to get drinks from but we did not check that out. The project is located at the airport end of Hua Hin off Soi6 so is relatively secluded and quiet - but you definitely need a car to get around. There is a 7/11 about 10 mins away and Market Village (defacto centre of town) is around 30 mins drive on a typical day. There are about 2-4 local restaurants between the house and the 7/11 but we only checked out one - and it was very good (Toon's).
We had some minor issues with the downstairs bathroom while we were there but they were fixed pretty quickly by the maintenance staff, also the owner contacted us & followed up by email & phone which was nice. Highly recommend for a holiday stay.
Thank you very much, James, for your informative review and constructive comments. It was greatly appreciated..We are now in the process of installing a ramp at the back of the house for easier access to the pool, as well as railings on the steps
.We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay. Please come back again!
Home from Home
Anne Barlow's villa was everything,and more, than we could have hoped for.It was well maintained and tastefully furnished exceeding any expectations of a holiday let.The gardens and pool were well kept. Both my wife and I found it so special that we immediately booked up for next year. Our daughter and husband came to stay with us for two weeks and were heartbroken when the time came to leave.
Thank you very much John. It was a pleasure having you and Wendy stay. I'm pleased your daughter and husband also enjoyed the villa.
We are looking forward to your return visit next year.
Gepflegte Villa in ruhiger Lage
Es ist eine schöne gepflegte Villa in ruhiger Lage. Alles sauber und komfortabel. Die Anfahrt war nicht so einfach. Der Fahrer hat die angegebene Adresse nicht gefunden. Phil hat uns dann telefonisch geleitet. Man benötigt auf jeden Fall Taxi, Mietwagen oder Roller. Die gesamte Anlage ist sehr schön, die Mitbewohner freundlich. Uns hat es gut gefallen.
Tilava, toimiva Villa, ystävällinen ja auttavainen Phil neuvoi ja ohjasi . Villa oli kaukana palveluista , ilmotettu sijaintitietoja oli hämäävä.
