The house is a Town Home, with a living are of 225 square meter plus terraces and balcony. It also has a private splash pool, as can be seen in the pictures. The house is equippped for six people but not for more.
There are twelve similar house in the community, in six separate buildings, all surrounding the common pool area. There is also a small, 3 holes, golf course (with 1st tee 40 meters from the house), and a tennis court.

My home is furnished with contemporary as well as antique furniture and works of art. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and there are queen size beds in the smaller bedrooms. The house has a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, micro wave, and everything else needed in a six people household. There is also a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The house has wireless Internet, DVD and IPTV with many international channels.
There are many excellent, local restaurants just around the corner, two at a 5 star hotel only 5 minutes away. But it is also a wonderful experience to barbeque freshly caught seafood (like lobster, prawns, crabs) at the terrace and devour a delicious meal at your own home.
If your are heading for the beaches, the first choice is to take a long tail boat to one of the beautiful islands just outside the bay, a 20 minutes trip for a small sum of money. They maid will book for you if you ask. See for instance some pictures of Koh Rang Yai, a private small island, with clean white beaches, sun loungers (not available on the west side beaches), showers, and a nice restaurant.
However, you can also steer your car towards Surin Beach or any of the other great beaches one the west side, perhaps 20 minutes away.
A great national park can be reached only 10 minutes up the road, which offers splendid walks in the rainforest, perhaps followed by a swim in the waterfalls and elephant trekking (not necessarily in that order).
Shopping is available in Phuket Town or Central Festival, both 20 minutes away by car. Patong, 30 minutes away, also has great shopping.
You will have access to the whole house as well as the golf course, tennis court, fully equipped gym, SPA, table tennis, and of course the entire large newly renovated pool area (see photo). There are no limitations in how you want to enjoy the villa and Grove Gardens as a whole.If you like the services, the maid would appreciate a tip as you leave the house. Thanks.
If you need, the owner will be available for you during your entire stay, on telephone or through e-mail. The maid is also there to help, as well as other staff and the English speaking manager at Grove Gardens.
The house is part of a gated community on the east side of Phuket, north of Boat Lagoon, with a great view of the bay and the surrounding islands as well as the mountains in the west. The car ride from Phuket airport to Grove Gardens takes about 20-25 minutes.
If you wish a discount on price, utilities can be charged later. You can save energy by turning off i.e. aircon when you leave the house and at night.
Since this is my private home, I am careful about everything, and hope that my guests will take care of it as if it was their own. And please save electricity! Remember to turn off the aircon when it is not needed, at night and when you leave the building longer periods.
I am a Swede, residing in Stockholm. I also own a town home in Phuket, Thailand which I love and invested a lot in. I am still working so can't be there as much as I want. Therefore I rent out sometimes. And I want my guests to be as happy as I am when there. I try to help them as much as possible.
