Stunning beach front Phuket hideaway with unrivalled island views and sunsets



Updated: 07-Jun-2016
Elegantly furnished, spacious, 3 bdrm townhouse on beach with 40m infinity pool

Listen to the sound of breaking waves as you lose yourself in the most amazing views sparkling water, passing yachts and verdant green islands from the terrace of this stunning 3 bedroom townhouse. Laze by the lovely 40 metre infinity-edge swimming pool or frolic in the warm Andaman Sea by day, then sip champagne as you watch some of the most spectacular sunsets in Asia before walking down the beach to one of the two great beach restaurants (open in high season) where you can enjoy good Thai or western food at bargain prices. Located in the lovely Ao Yon area, adjacent to the ultra exclusive Cape Panwa headland, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches and tranquility yet just minutes away from the vibrant bars and fantastic local and international restaurants. Some of Asia's finest golf courses are only 30 minutes away whilst the islands of Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lon and Koh Racha are just a short boat ride away. Ideal for families or couples seeking that perfect getaway.

Fantastic house in a relaxing environment

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than we imagined it would be and Marc was really helpful during the booking process. Noi,who manages the house locally and her team were brilliant in looking after us and very attentive during our stay, helping us out with cars etc. On that note driving was easy as long as you slowed down and took it easy amongst the swarms of scooters.

The house is airy, spacious well equipped and overlooks the bay with its ever changing vista as boats come and go. The pool is fantastic and many times we were the only ones there. (this might be something to do with mad dogs and englishman....)

We ate at the first beach bar you come to as you walk down the beach on our first night and returned there many times during our stay as it provided good simple Thai food. We travelled round the island and ate in a mixture of restaurants and never had a bad meal. Restaurants in the large resort towns are catering for their tourist audience so were not as good as others we found.

I would recommend the Sunday night market in the centre of Phuket Town (there is one on the outskirts too) for street food and trinkets. It was Chinese New Year whilst we were there so it was very lively.

I would highly recommend staying at Waterside as it is a fantastic base away from the crowds but they are not too far away if you want them.

Owner's Response: I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, and thank you for your comments. I agree, the restaurants nearby are much more authentic and better value than those in the more touristy destinations. I look forward to welcoming you back to Waterside! Marc

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

The condition of the house is exceptional. Spacious. Beautifully designed and decorated. Fully equipped with all things you need to live in a home. The staff is very helpful in a lot of ways and willing to help out as requested. The area is safe and peaceful, which sometimes can be very hard to find in Phuket these days. The pool is awesome. The view is SPECTACULAR. No doubt we did have a great time.

However, for benefits of future travelers I need to make the following feedback:

- I don't personally like the method of payment, which is a wire transfer. Besides the fact that it will cost you quite a bit, esp. if you do international transactions, I get nervous when I don't promptly hear from the receiver of the money. I probably ended up paying $150 in total for bank fees.

- The beach directly in front is not really swim-able because it's full of rocks and hard corals. Bring your beach trekking shoes.

- The villa is situated on the 3rd floor of a 5-story villa complex. To get to the pool or the beach, you will have to take about 30 steps downstairs. To get to the parking lot, it's 20 steps upstairs. If you have elderly people with you, make sure you are aware of this fact.

This villa meets and exceeds our expectations in many ways. So, thank you!

Easy and luxurious vacation

  • 5 of 5

We would "second" what has already been said in other reviews... The owner and his local property manager were incredibly helpful in setting up everything we needed - in our case: nanny, chef, groceries, transport, masseuses, and 2 baby cribs + high chairs - all with top quality and reasonable prices. And the apartment, the pool, the beach, the views, and the daytrips/activities were absolutely delightful. Made it easy to relax and enjoy, even with 2 babies, and it was soooo hard to leave! We hope to go back again soon.

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 10 days at waterside, the duplex apartment was wonderful and spacious and a great place to spend christmas with plenty of space for all the family. The pool was fantastic for swimming lengths, and the apartment is very well equipped to accommodate a new born baby. The manager noi was extremely helpful and organized a cook for three nights who cooked up delicious food.

Experience Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a peaceful, deeply renewing holiday, this is your spot. The apartment has stunning ocean views from every room, is very well equipped, and extremely spacious. The décor is a very tasteful country Asian style, and there’s a feeling of lightness and comfort in each room. We were there during the peak Christmas holiday season, and even then the pool area was often completely empty. At low tide the beach is long enough for a 2-mile round trip walk or run, and there are some charming restaurants at one end if you want to pause for a drink or a meal. Best of all, the owner’s apartment manager, Noi, is a huge asset; she will arrange for inexpensive Thai massages in the apartment, coordinate meals, book reservations, and help in every way imaginable. The owner also has a car and driver that you can use, which I highly recommend; cost us about 25% less than renting a Hertz car with none of the hassle of finding our way around in a new area. We enjoyed being away from the intense tourist crowd on the west side of the island, although it was only a 30-min drive to get there for dinner on a couple of evenings. Marc Singleton, the owner, is also extremely helpful, and this place is every bit as lovely and peaceful as the photos on the website.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful two week holiday spent at B4, Waterside. The accommodation was perfect for three couples. It rained more than usual during our stay, so we had to stay in quite a bit, but the apartment was large enough for us not to be in each other's hair! We even managed Yoga lessons, three times a week, on the terrace.

Waterside is a non-pretentious modern property with breath-taking views. It is well maintained and decorated, with all the amenities one would need away from home. We also enjoyed the fact that the area around it is still not over-developed and retains its authentic island-life like quality.

The owner, Marc, was extremely helpful and and responded immediately and positively to any queries we raised. We cannot praise enough the staff responsible for looking after us - especially Khun Noi - who was there 24/7 to ensure that all our needs and requirements be taken care of. She is a wonderful cook and organized a couple of wonderful meals for us.

B4 Waterside is definitely to be recommended to anyone wanting a perfect holiday in Phuket. A car is definitely necessary.
