About Gayl Pickett

We are John & Gayl, the proud owners of this magnificent self catering villa...Icandi Hideaway. We are currently living in England but like to go back and forth to Thailand as much as we can so that we can enjoy spending time in the Villa that we created for everyone to enjoy. We have designed this stunning home so that we can accommodate all of our family...which is at a total of 12. With 4 grandchildren, family holidays are great fun when we all get to come to Icandi. The house is large enough to allow everyone their own space, but also intimate enough to enjoy family time together. We have spent many happy hours playing in the pool & creating and enjoying many wonderful seafood meals on the BBQ over the Koi Carp pond.

We hope that you will love this villa as much as we do and appreciate the wonderful surroundings in and out of Icandi. We are more than happy to help and advise on places to visit when you are staying here...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are 12 French men all golf players. Every two years we organise a golf trip abroad. We have already been in United States, Turkish, Morocco, Vietnam, Spain, …. This year we decided to go to Thailand, and more precisely to HUA HIN. It was really a great idea. It’s just perfect place to spend à week playing golf and having good time. Hua Hin is not so busy like Bangkok or Phuket, it’s a very nice town on the sea cost, with plenty of nice restaurants and as well as a nice bar area for having fun in the evening.

For this trip we decided not to go in a hotel but to rent a villa and we choose ICANDI. It was just perfect. When you rent a place for 10 days and when you are hundreds of miles away, you’re always a bit suspicious about what you will really get ! With Icandi it was the opposite, It was even better that we had imagine , and saw on the web site. The villa is just perfect. It’s only high quality material, everything is in order, not a single bad surprise ! The garden is also absolutely lovely and very well maintained. All bedrooms are on the front of the villa, facing the beautiful and warm swimming pool. In The kitchen you will find everything you need ! the BBQ area is also perfect with a large table. In case you need something you just have to ask to the very very friendly house keepers. They are doing all they can to make you feel good and have nice time. The beach is about 10 minutes walk but if you want to go into town, or in restaurant its better rent a car. You can also call taxi it’s easy and not expansive. You want to play on fabulous golf courses ? You want to have good time with your friends or family ? You want to relax in a quiet and beautifull villa ? So go to Hua Hin and rent ICANDI !

Beautifully presented private villa

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 12 spent a week at Icandi in November 2017. The villa is beautifully presented and set in extensive and very well maintained gardens. Five of the six bedrooms overlook the gorgeous pool area, which provides a relaxing and private sanctuary for enjoying the lovely weather. It's a perfect place to chill out and enjoy some quality family time. We were able to hire a car and ventured out to Hua Hin and the night markets. The local beach is just a few minutes away but we all decided that we preferred the serenely peaceful and private pool at Icandi! Thank you Gail for all your help with our trip. We hope to return one day!

Fabulous Fabulous Icandi

  • 5 of 5

It ‘s a month now since we returned from Christmas at Icandi - and we are still basking in the warm glow that the Icandi experience gives.

There were eleven of us - Granparents , Children and Grandchildren and all our expectations were fulfilled and exceeded. A well managed house in a beautiful setting and the thoughtfulness and kindness that is apparent in so many ways made for a wonderful and memorable time.

We would thoroughly recommend Icandi!

Icandi Hideaway, luxuriously appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed and staffed villa is situated close to beautiful beaches with an array of local restaurants and a very good Italian. It was possible to order food in from the restaurants to eat at the villa if you didn't feel like going out or cooking for yourselves. The kitchen is very well equipped which made meal preparation and entertaining very easy.

The house is finished and furnished to a high standard, the gardens well kept and the pool area with shaded seating areas, swinging huge massage bed, bar and BBQ area delightful.

The staff were most helpful and went about their duties diligently and discretely. We were met by the owner who prepared a delicious BBQ for us on our first night.

I would highly recommend the property, it truly is a little piece of paradise!

We were delighted to hear that everything was up to your expectations, and that you all enjoyed everything Icandi and the surrounding areas have to offer. there are so many nice little restaurants nearby, especially the one on the fisherman's beach by Khao Kalok. The villa is the perfect getaway for families and groups like yourselves, with space for everyone. John was very pleased to meet you all and the staff were very happy to look after you. I hope that we may see you back with us one day.

Unforgettable hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a pleasure of staying at this lovely, luxurious villa for one week in February 2017. The villa totally lived up to our expectations - it was beautiful, clean and spacious. The pool was well used as we travelled with children (7 adults and 5 children). We had a feeling of having a hotel all for ourselves, as the staff discreetly took care of breakfast preparations and cleaning of the rooms, but at other times we got to enjoy the peacefulness of the hideaway all by ourselves. We rented scooters and discovered the beautiful beaches and authentic restaurants nearby.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review, we love to hear what our guests thought of Icandi and are so pleased it lived up to your expectations. We are glad that our staff headed by Khun Dear, looked after you well, allowing you the peace to just enjoy family time in the wonderful pool. The children do love it and never want to get out! We try to give that little bit more, and should you ever return to Icandi, the children will now find a 16' trampoline, swing and rope ladder for more fun! I guess the trampoline might be used by adults too! So sorry we couldn't have organised it for your stay. We are pleased also that you had time outside of the villa visiting the lovely beaches and enjoying the wonderful Thai cuisine. We do have great restaurants nearby to try out. Thank you once more for choosing to stay with us. It was our pleasure to look after you all. Gayl
