Holiday Villa Rentals

Property matters: Holiday Villa Rentals

Holiday villas have become a very popular alternative to hotel rooms in recent years, hence the increasing demand and supply of holiday rental properties. This is especially so if the party is a group of more than two adults and a couple of kids. Just the thought of squeezing everyone into standard size hotel rooms is not a good start to a great holiday. Therefore the option of renting a villa has become very appealing in recent times.

Firstly, a holiday villa is very much like a home-away-from-home. It has virtually everything your home has – or more. Holiday villas can range from 2-7 bedroom villas and can cater from two up to at least 15 in-house guests at any one time. Therefore if it’s an extended family affair, 2-3 families or a group of friends holidaying together then a holiday villa is the perfect solution.

High end holiday villas can be from USD 3,000 to USD 5,000 per night over the high season. This would include a full service personalised staff that will look after your every whim and fancy – including a villa manager, maids, chef and even a driver or nanny on request. To command such a price, these high-end villas are usually in the best locations around the island boasting spectacular sea views.

A swimming pool in such villas is a standard facility, but most of the views from these pools are quite breathtaking and worth more than an Instagram photo. Swimming in an infinity edge pool dramatically overlooking a cliff to the Andaman sea is quite an experience. Some villas even come complete with a fully equipped gym, massage and sauna room, entertainment room with pool table or even a soundproof cinema room for 15 pax with its own pop corn machine.

The other popular holiday rentals are longer term, between 1-3 months, and are now increasingly favoured among holiday makers escaping from frigid temperatures back home who would like to stay in an all-year ‘hot and sunny’ location like Phuket.

Depending on location, bedrooms required and also the rental period, monthly rentals could start as low as THB 45,000 to THB 350,000 per month, excluding utilities like water and electricity. However the monthly rental price would normally include wifi and pool, garden and maid services.

Due to the popularity and demand for villa holiday rentals, it is advisable to secure a booking as early as possible. This will afford you with more choices as well as flexibility when choosing the appropriate property early.
