I am an IT Director at an International School located outside of Thailand. Our studio condo/apartment will be available almost anytime during the school year. My wife and myself will return to Phuket for major school holidays (summer vacation, winter vacation, spring break, etc.). Please contact me if you would like to have a longer or shorter stay. I am new to Intervac and unsure how to configure everything properly. It is currently set for a 2 week length of stay but we can easily accommodate longer or shorter stays.

PHUKET THAILAND - Poolside Studio apartment in a Swiss run hotel with amazing food & drink

[ AVAILABLE FOR EXTENDED PERIODS! ]
[ non-synchronous exchange means you can stay when it fits YOUR schedule! ]

Our cool and comfortable studio apartment with amazing pool access has a true island holiday feel! It comfortably fits two and is centrally located in Karon, just 800 meters from Kata beach. Easier to walk around Kata-Karon area than you might think! Some adventurous tourists rent mountain bikes but many prefer to rent inexpensive motor scooters.

Located in the Bourgainvillea Terrace House hotel - http://www.villea.com

You'll be treated as hotel guests! Just seconds from the swimming pool; open the sliding glass door and you're at pool side. Incredible Swiss-Thai restaurant called Locanda (famous for very high quality steak, fondue, wine and more)! Wonderful bar near the pool serving Pina Colada and Mai Tai cocktails too.

Our room (and the hotel) is wonderfully located in quiet Swiss hotel. The entire area is pretty busy and getting more crowded each year but the room itself is quiet and the hotel its located in has a great reputation for quality and relaxation.

You'll be treated as a hotel guest and can enjoy the Thai style beach holiday you deserve!
