We had a great stay in Baan Alessandra Villa. It is close to Ao Nang and potential excursions to Railay or small islands close to Ao Nang. But there you can relax as it is an oasis.
I recommend to rent a moto, or talk to Sara to arrange transport for you. Ah! Sara is a great host that treated us perfectly, being very flexible and helful with our needs, she made everything easy.
We were 8 people staying there from the 6th to the 13th of November!
Sara arranged everything for us including transfer from Koh Lanta and back to Phuket (extra charge, but very cheap).
Sun drove us everywhere within Ao Nang and was very kind.
The Villa itself is amazing in comparison to what you pay. As usually in Thailand there are a few things which they should repair but for Thai Standards its almost pure luxury.
We had a lot of space in the Villa and the distance from the beach is ok with Sun (the driver) on your side.
There are a few bad things though:
There are two bathrooms in the main building but you can only use one for shower. The second is just to use as toilet as you would floating it. So you have to use one shower for at least 5 people. The bathrooms itself as well as the dishes are overused and should be changed.
But as already mentioned the Service is great because the Villa was cleaned daily including washing the dishes and changing the towels.
Alltogether it was a very nice & comfortable stay and I would recommend it to everyone (except people with 5 star standard expectations)
Wonderful experience staying here!
As with the few villas we stayed in at Krabi, the location of the villas are really in the middle/near villages where the locals stay. Very private but a bit far from shops, restaurants & night entertainment.
Booking experience via Krabi Villas was easy. All questions entertained within a few hours during office hours. Online payment by credit card was easy. Greeting at the airport and checking out with fuss free.
Sara was so attentive and really there for you at a moment's notice. Just a call away - she was able to arrange for a longtail boat, mini van tour, massages, rental of scooters and even get food from a local restaurant delivered to the villa..at just a few hours notice! You never got the feeling that she/the villa management was after a commission like in some places.
Facilities were well taken care of. We had towels changed daily, kitchen cleaned daily.
One thing they could add was a fan at the outside lounge or dining area.
Other than that, could not have had a more perfect getaway with friends. We were a group of 9 pax. Sleeping arrangements & living arrangements still felt really comfortable.

I stayed for 2 nights with family - 2 young children and 2 grandparents.
The villa is extremely well kept, clean floor, towels and kitchen. The villa manager is literally 1 call away, we have a minor emergency early morning of our 1st night stay and Sarah was there within 5minutes.
She is helpful, informative and is NOT at all out to make a commission. She makes genuine recommendations. She makes our stay a very pleasant one.
The other "big PLUS" is the tuk tuk service. The driver is super reliable and also literally a call away. It makes our trip to nearby areas for meals, massage, beach etc so easy, personal chauffer.
The only downside is insects, but it is common in all resorts. The villa is equipped with insects coils, be sure to request for it.
Also, don't rely on google map coordinates to locate the vto illa. We rented a Fortuner when we arrived and followed google map for direction. It brought us completely off course and off road into plantation with an attap hut as destination. Of course, Sarah and her colleagues directed us back. Setting King Cobra Show as destination will be the closest bet.
