Took a short trip with my wife and friends over the weekend to Phuket. The plan was to get away from the crowd and touts in Patong or Kata. So the requirement was somewhere peaceful but yet not too far from the main shopping areas (wife requested) then I found Rawai and found a gorgeous 4 storey house with a stunning pool but at an affordable price!
Everyone was awe struck by the shear size and beauty of the house which the friendly owner calls "Mojito Residence". Up the entrance was a gorgeous lap pool with a build in jacuzzi!! The house was clean and spacious, walking up the marble flooring, we arrived at our rooms.
I took the master bedroom of course. We were welcomed by a clean and well organised room with fresh flowers and nicely decorated / origami towels placed on a 4 poster bed. Massive clean toilet with separate shower facility and jacuzzi bathtub. Did I mention jacuzzi bathtub?
It was almost sunset after unpacking, we headed to check the rooftop. Gosh, the view is simply amazing. We laid down on the sofa under a beautifully crafted wooden shelter and watched the sun set. Our short getaway is beginning to look like a dream come through.
To summarize the entire trip, we have made multiple requests to the owner for things to make our holiday as convenient as possible.
. Taxi pickup from airport
. A 4 wheel drive to get around Phuket
. Fill the fridges with beer
. Prepare food for BBQ (big 4 burner bbq pit on the roof)
All request accomplished upon arrival. As a bonus, the owner made all of us Mojitos during BBQ. One of the most memorable vacations we have ever had.
