About Keith Newington

We have lived in Asia for 20+ years and Phuket has been our favourite holiday destination for a long time. For now we are living in Hong Kong having moved up from Singapore last year. We expect to spend a lot of our retirement years in our villa but enjoy staying there whenever we can.

Keith Newington purchased this villa in 2007

Why Keith Newington chose Phuket

Over the years we have gotten to know Phuket very well. We consider Bang Tao beach to be the best in Phuket which coupled with excellent local facilities makes it the best location to be for both short and long term stays. When choosing the villa we wanted to stay away from the crowds but close to facilities. The Maan Tawan Estate was an ideal choice being at the northern end of the beach past the Banyan Tree. The quality and design of the villas is excellent and the location superb.

What makes this villa unique

The villa provides our guests with a luxury, tropical home during their stay in Phuket. It features a lovely pool and tropical surroundings for enjoying the balmy tropical weather. The villa has all the mod cons you might need from large screen TVs and an extensive movie collection to internet access and multi-room music systems. One of the best features is the access to the beach - only 3 mins walk away - everything you could expect from a "picture postcard" tropical beach. You will enjoy the friendly beach bars and excellent seafood restaurants nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful villa. We all had the most wonderful stay. Your household staff are amazing. Khun Jhit and Khun Jhai have made us so welcome. They are such excellent cooks. We really enjoyed the meals we had at your villa. Definitely coming back! I hope you don't mind if I spread the word. I will definitely recommend your villa to all my friends.

All the best,

Grace Horton

I knew it would be hard to find better than your place, but now I'm convinced of it! Your villa and your maid are the best of the best! (maybe I should just pre-book for the next 10 years :-)

Perfect beach holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our first visit to Phuket and loved it! The villa was perfect for our group of 6 adults; 2 couples & 2 singles. The bedrooms are very spacious with dressing areas and en-suite bath/shower rooms. The 2 main bedrooms upstairs also had use of the wrap round terrace with huge comfy loungers which were perfect for an afternoon snooze out of the sun. The pool was great for cooling off after walking back from the nearby beautiful beach which was only a 10 mins stroll away. The girls in the house looked after us very well, nothing was too much trouble. We did not make much use of their culinary skills as we wanted to try the local restaurants but we can recommend the breakfasts! They were a great help with their local knowledge when we were organising outings & restaurants and made all the bookings for us.

The villa is beautifully furnished & equipped and in a great location for the perfect holiday.

Bliss and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at our villa past midnight on a Friday night to some much needed, home cooked Thai food (after a 7 hour flight with 4 kids under 2 years this was extremely well received!!). This villa is beautiful, a complete dream for 4 busy mums (and dads!) and kept in such wonderful condition - we felt like we were in absolute heaven the whole time. Khun Jit and her sister were just god sends!! To go on a holiday, with 4 young kids, and not have to think about feeding ourselves (or cleaning or even cutting our own mango!!) is something we had only dreamed of. It took such an immense pressure off us and meant that we could actually RELAX and enjoy every minute of our holiday. The beach is within 5 minutes walking distance (great waves) and if we felt like getting out and about we just asked the housekeeper to order us a taxi (they could even order us car seats for the little ones). Life was easy! We have made so many wonderful memories and most certainly will be back. Thank you so much for renting out your home!!

The fabulous Bang Tao beach is only 3 mins walk from the villa. It is a white sand beach, 6km long and sprinkled with beach bars and seafood restaurants. At the northern end near the villa the beach is more private and secluded with a local beach restaurant nearby. Great spot for a day at the beach - safe swimming, good food, lounges, massage. Yet all the facilities around the resort hotels are only 10 mins walk away. The beach faces west so is fantastic for watching sunsets !


The Phuket Airport (international & domestic) is only 25 mins away. Patong shopping & nightlife is 30 mins away. If you want to stay locally and relax at the villa then hiring a car is not really necessary However, if you like to get out and about then hiring a car is a good idea. Our villa manager can assist with car arrangements if needed. Note that during busy periods it's a good idea to book in advance.


The local village is 5 mins drive away with many shops, restaurants, art galleries and local handicrafts. There are also a number of spas in the area as an alternative to the Banyan Tree. Larger supermarkets are 10-15 mins away and the international standard Central Mall is 25 mins away. The shopping and nightlife of Surin, Phuket Town, and Patong are 15-25 mins away.

Further Details:

We can recommend a number of both local Thai and International restaurants nearby - details at the villa. There is the international Villa Market at Boat Avenue (near Laguna), a Tesco supermarket 15 mins away and an international supermarket at Central mall 25 mins away.

There are many ATMs at nearby shopping areas. We recommend hiring a local boat and doing some snorkelling or visiting the stunning Phang Nga Bay for it's spectacular scenery.
