VILLA DESCRIPTION

The property, called Baan Kata Keeree in Thai, is set amongst itís own private lush tropical gardens. The  complex has six bedrooms, two main dining areas, a private salt chlorinated pool on the main terrace, and a six seater Jacuzzi on the lower front terrace along with a massage & relaxation sala. A fully equipped playroom and small tree house lie at the back. The villa has recently been equipped with Free WIFI ADSL Internet Access.

Baan Kata Keeree is located on over one rai (1600m2) of land at the southern tip of Kata beach, on a rocky promontory overlooking the entire beach and bay, including Poo Island. There is a private beach access, whilst the villa itself remains very exclusive with remote controlled entry gate. Yachting friends can anchor their boats right under the villa and walk up.

The house itself is totally unique and stands in itís own private grounds - it is one of a kind. Unlike most other developments on the island, which are part of communities, this property was entirely designed and constructed by the owners. The architect is Professor Junaphas who did the renowned Regent Four Seasons in Chiang Mai, amongst other exclusive developments. This property is quite easily the most outstanding sea front villa on Phuket.

The Thai style villa itself is made up of four main buildings covering over 400m2 of house space, with another 400m2 of terraces. The middle building is two stories, giving the two top bedrooms a complete view of the entire bay. The terrace space is particularly outstanding, with two levels and two swimming pools with cascades from one to the other (one is 12mx5m with a Jacuzzi and swimming jet current, the other is a six seater rock Jacuzzi which can also act as a kiddies paddling pool for small ones). The fully landscaped back gardens have two functional waterfalls, one of which flows into a fish pond and also acts as the main entry level. There is another entrance sala at the top, and a separate service access.

For your dining requirements you have a choice of a large outdoor teak table, which overlooks the entire bay, or the indoor dining area, both of which can comfortably seat 12. All indoor areas are fully air conditioned (including the western kitchen), with top of line recessed Mitsubishi Mr. Slim models. Fans are also available in all rooms. Small details such as deluxe Slumberland mattresses add to the feeling of comfort, which is always paramount in this type of property.

The house was designed for ease of living, and comprises a fully equipped modern kitchen right next to the lounge/living area (it has all modern conveniences, including a large cooled wine cellar). An additional kitchen for staff use and Thai cooking lies at the back near the covered parking area. All rooms have a full, unobstructed view of the sea and the swimming pool.

The entire house has been tastefully furnished, with no expense barred, using a combination of oriental antiques maximizing the use of colours, and different textures such as marble, granite and teak, which are used abundantly. Cable TV with a large 42in Flat screen and home thatre sound system is in the lounge and computer/ internet access (flat screen LCD) are also available as is a fax machine.
The house comprises six bedrooms (five with king sized beds and one with two large single beds) and six bathrooms, each with bath and separate shower, and most with private gardens containing ornamental statues. Part of the master bathroom looks out over the bay through an ornamental garden. The staff quarters consists of an extra two bedrooms with own bathrooms. A safe is available for guest use in the master bedroom. On the lower terrace along with the massage or relaxation sala is the six seater jacuzzi.
The entire property, including trees and pools, is tastefully floodlit at night to give maximum effect.
