“Couldn't ask for more...”
Reviewed 1 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Our family of 7 adults stayed in the Banburi Villa over Christmas. We would all very much recommend it. The villa itself is spacious and well kept, having our own private pool and large garden was fantastic.

Chris kept in touch right from the moment we booked and was extremely helpful throughout our stay. He was available everyday to help us plan our stay, book trips (ensuring the best price) and then driving us where we needed to be. He was always available on the phone if we needed him also. It really helped us to enjoy a relaxed stay with plenty of activities thrown in. If we were to come back to the area I wouldn't hesitate in booking here again.

Thank you Chris & Bee from us all.

“Beautiful, spacious, friendly”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We contacted Chris the evening before we arrived, due to unexpected problem with our original booking. Chris responded immediately, confirmed booking by phone and arranged our transport to the villa.
We are so glad we ended up in Banburi Villa !
The place is peaceful, charming, with plenty of room both indoors and outdoors and all spotless clean.
Above all it is very friendly and welcoming.
You get the feeling you can ask for the moon and soon enough Chris will be at the door with your favorite celestial object ...
Highly recommended!

“Family run villa! Nice and friendly touch”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed at the 4 bedroom villa from 3rd Jan to 7th Jan with 7 Pax. Before the trip started I had already emailed with the owner(chris) and he respond promptly. Normally within hours and on the same day even if its holiday.

When we first reach there, Chris showed us around the villa and gave us a file of activities that we can choose to do for our stay. A fruit basket was also given!

Water in the fridge is replenish everyday and simple kitchen food is provided(bread,butter, jam, tea bags etc) There is full kitchen accessories such as pots , toasters and oven.

Chris also will drive you to a nearby groceries store for us to stock up on our snacks and breakfast free-of-charge. They also will provide daily 1x trip to Aonang beach where most of the activities such as restaurant and nightlife is happening there. We din't rent any transport as all activities provided transport and we just need to pay a tuk tuk trip back to the villa which can range from 250 baht to 350 baht.

Room is cleaned everyday and towels are changed every 2 days. Every morning I also can see them cleaning the gardens and the swimming pool. Swimming pool is very clean throughout the trip that we spend quite alot of time soaking in it.

Chris and his wife, bee, will literally settle everything for you. From cleaning to arranging all your activities.

Good and recommended:
- Book your villa directly through them, price was cheaper then agoda
- Book your activities through them, they may be able to help get a cheaper price
- You can just go there without any plan, look through the file and tell them what you want they can help to mix and match and give good advises.
- Try the food cooked by the wife,bee. After a day of activities and you just want to chill at your villa she can do the cooking and bring it right into the villa. Pirce wise although slightly more expensive but its nice and for the comfort its worth it.
- They are just living next door, anything just walk over and ask ^^
- Run by family, not commercialized that give you a family fee.

Not so good part that we had:
- Alot of mosquitoes, bad enough that after 7pm we have to stay indoors. Its something uncontrollable since we are in the middle of a forest away from the towns.
- On the first day there was a prolonged period of power trip, that lasted for an hour or so. Not their fault, the trip affected the entire area which they are unable to do anything and their house is also affected.

Other recommendation:
- Shampoo is given, soap is given in soap bar. If not used to sharing soap bar with many people, do bring your own bottle or you can just buy at the shops. Its quite cheap anyway.
- Do bring/buy toothbrush and toothpaste; its not provided.

Other then that, its all sufficient and do bring a travel adapter (Different plug from Singapore)

Conclusion: Really enjoyed the trip at banburi villa, big and spacious and its constantly kept very clean. A big pool for you to soak in as and when you want.

“Like a home away from home”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Travelled with 3 other girlfriends and from the moment we arrived, Chris & Bee made us feel like part of their family. They recommended and arranged trips/tours for us and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. Although the villa itself is a little out of the way (10-15 min drive to Ao Nang town) they always made sure they could be contacted for directions and that we found our way back. Also the villa is extremely clean, spacious and comfortable; it felt like a sanctuary that we looked forward to retreating to after a whole day of outdoor activities. Thanks for such an awesome stay Chris & Bee - we definitely hope to be staying with you and your family again soon!
