Reviewed 18 January 2011

we had a great stay in this hotel. Phil greeted us downstairs and helped us carry our luggages upstairs. Then he drove us around to show where the hotspots are, such as restaurants, bars, beaches, shops, etc. He is such a nice person. The room was spacious, clean, and quiet. It faces a forest where we were told we could occassionally see monkeys on the trees. Although we didn't during our stay, it is a green view out of the window. If I have to point out a weakness, the shower water was not that strong and it tastes a little salty. But it would be weird enough to taste bath water, right? The stay was a highlight during our stay at Phuket and we would definitely return if we go to Phuket next time.

We stayed at Villareal Heights for almost 1 week before Christmas and had one of our best family vacations. Phil and Jo welcomed us like we were family. We booked a mountainview suite for me and my husband and our 2 girls. Our 5 year old and 2 year old felt right at home as soon as we got inside the room. Our 5 year old immediately told us, " this is not a hotel mom. It looks like a house". The room is very clean and decorated very nicely. It had a king size bed and really comfortable beddings and mattress. It is very comparable to staying in a 5 star rating hotel. Phil had a single bed for our daughter to sleep in and our girls love the comfortable couch .We love that the room had a TV and DVD player with surround sound for the times our girls want to watch movies. The free WIFI internet was a big plus for us. The kitchen had a big refrigerator and microwave. Our room also had a big closet for all our clothes and came with a safety deposit box. The bathroom is very clean and spacious.

Phil and Jo were so nice to give us tips where to go and where to eat. They booked all our tours and made sure we got a good value for our money.

Overall, if we ever go back to Phuket, we would email Phil and Jo right away and stay at Villareal Heights and we would recommend all our friends to stay there.

If you go to Phuket, its worth it to go to Paradise Beach. We love it there. We had a daytrip at Phi Phi island and it was beautiful and breathtaking. The elephant trekking and elephant feeding was fun.

Hope we can visit Phuket again. Thanks Phil, Jo, PJ and Dobbie for welcoming us! Hope to see you all soon!

We stayed at Villareal Heights around christmas for 4 nights. Our airport pick-up was pre-arranged bij Phil, the owner. The welcome at the hotel was very nice, thanks again to said Phil and his wife, Jo. We had 2 rooms at the top floor which were clean and spacious, with a nice view as a bonus. Broadband WiFi was hassle-free. A large, well stocked fridge, which you could replenish yourself according to your drinking habits was part of the equipment.
The rooms had a balcony where I could have a smoke if necessary.
All in al, we had a wonderful stay and Villareal Heights turned out to be good value for money.

Phil and Jo are the most welcoming couple you will ever meet in Thailand. The guesthouse is just a short walk from the main area in Kata.
The room was great. Very clean, spacious, Wifi included which is always a plus.
Phil was generous with his time and gladly took us around to show us the nice places to go to and the nice restaurants. He couldn't have done anymore to make us feel welcome. Since Jo and I are both from the Philippines, it was nice to have a chat with her and to meet their gorgeous boy! Also missing my dog back in England, it was a delight to play with their dog, Dobbie.
When our planned trip was cancelled the last minute, Phil went out of his way to book us another trip early in the morning. It was truly appreciated.
We cant recommend them enough! Will truly stay with them anytime! It is worth going to Kata just to be able to stay with them! Truly a great place. All the best to Phil, Jo, PJ, and Dobbie.

Thanks to the overwhelmingly positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we had the tremendous pleasure of staying at the Villareal Heights for four nights in late December 2010.

This is not so much a review of VH but a sincere note of gratitude to Phil and Jo for generously opening their home to us. Yes VH was a great place to stay and the accommodations were exceptionally comfortable and clean, but it was Phil, Jo and PJ who ultimately made it one of the most enjoyable trips I've had in all my years of traveling. I'm sure there are an abundance of guest houses in Phuket that offer suitable accommodations, but I surely doubt any of its proprietors will welcome and look after you the way Phil and Jo did for us.

During our entire stay we were warmly received like old friends and treated like extended family. Phil went out of his way to shuttle us around the island, showing us the best places to relax and eat that were off the beaten path. He also helped us to book our day trips to the neighboring islands, and was even waiting outside for us one morning before 6 am to see us off! When one of our day trips didn't pan out the way we thought it would, because we spent more time driving around in a van than expected (which was not a big deal at all to us because we still had a lot of fun), Phil took it personally and demanded on our behalf that the tour operator refund some of our money back (they did). Phil and Jo were constantly looking after us to make sure we were doing ok, and it was always a great feeling to come home to both of them on the porch asking us how our day went.

Phil and Jo clearly love what they do and it shows in the way they go above and beyond to ensure that their guests are taken care of.

If you stay anywhere else you're missing out.

Thank you so much for having us Phil, Jo and PJ. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

David, Leslie and Janya
