This villa is part of a cozy new project, which completed in August 2011. The rectangular-shaped modern 2 bedroomed villa is set over 2 stories with upper bedrooms facing north-south, with a cool but small private water pool & waterfalls in an open air courtyard just a few steps away from the residential (as opposed to tourist) Chalong beach with nice views of islands and boats in the bay.
The beach is more suitable for walking/jogging than swimming off and the fresh breezes and winds are very suitable for kite-surfing, with a base camp just beside the plot!
A couple of boats are also easily stored in the garden and launched in the shallow waters. There is also a popular meeting place for residents and bands at the appropriately named Friendship Beach nearby.
Friendship Villa is only about 30 metres from Chalong beach and 2 kilometres walk or 5 minute drive from Chalong Pier with anchorages for boats in the sheltered bay and the start point for many day trips, sailing, snorkelling and diving trips to outlying islands. The villa is only 40 metres from the kite-surfing base camp off the east facing beach, or 10 minute drives to south facing Nai Harn, Yanui and Jungle beaches. The villa is also only 15 minutes to the west facing Kata/Karon beaches and 30 minutes to Patong beach with its vibrant nightlife. With just a five minute drive to Rawai, Nai Harn and Chalong restaurants, bars and massage parlours, the villa is ideally located for convenient holiday fun. Shopping options such as the mini Tesco-Lotus supermarkets are also within a 5 minute drive and a 10 minute drive to Villa Market in Chalong. Friendship Villa is approximately 20-30 minutes from Phuket City & department stores, and 45 minutes to Phuket International Airport.
