“We visited the Mountain View villa in Krabi for our 3rd wedding anniversary. After seeing the pictures on the web, we were not prepared for how absolutely breathtaking the environment was! The house was wonderful, with a huge garden, big pool (no plunge pool here!) and full kitchen with all of the amenities (including a fantastic coffee that even my picky Roman husband liked). The location is perfect with nothing but the sound of crickets, birds and nature to disturb. And the view of the mountains is lovely at all times of day! Our favourite day was rainy and cool, but we got cosy on the comfy chairs, watched an old movie (they have satellite TV and a DVD player!) and listened to the sound of the rain on the surface of the pool. We will remember our visit fondly and are already planning a return, perhaps with friends. It is the perfect location for a short break or even a long holiday.”

Will not forget to do it Mark - your a charming lad after all :)
Good for you for keeping the property and running with it - we absolutely loved it. My sister has finally joined us in Chiang Mai with her friend. Would have loved to show her your place - we will have to do it next time - she is a pilot so getting over here is cheap and easy...
Will hammer you again next time for the discount :)
This Dutchman loves a deal...
Fantastic meeting you and Nang - we will recommend your place to anyone who will listen - we will tell them to say 'Rich from Canada sent us'....hopefully we can share your oasis with others.

We stayed at Mountain View Villa in December 2008 and had a wonderful experience. The villa is perfectly situated at the boundary of ………….National Park and about 10 minutes drive from the main beach areas. This was perfect for us as we could spend most of the morning and early afternoon on the shore or on boat trips to the local islands, and then return to the beautiful surroundings of the villa and the cool comfort of our own swimming pool.
The villa itself is tastefully designed to express the calm and peace of the natural environment that surrounds it. In the mornings we took breakfast on the gorgeous patio area and let the kids swim in the pool. In the evenings we prepared for a trip to the restaurants in town, but first with some drinks in the villas' own gazebo area. At this time we were often fortunate to witness the elephants from the National Park ,return to rest, after a day of trekking.
The villa has all the latest mod cons with a widescreen TV, satellite programming and internet access. However, we felt little need for these items and spent most of our time in the evenings relaxing to the sounds of nocturnal wildlife coming alive. And, believe me, it does come alive.
It was also nice to make use of the bicycles provided, and my father and I took a few trips either down to the beach or up into the tracks of the National Park.
We were a party of four adults and two small children and the villa accommodated us without any problem. The outdoor area around the villa, with its plentiful seating, is big enough that you can find your own private space for reading or simply relaxing.
Finally, Mark and his wife were extremely helpful without being intrusive. If we had any queries, they were only a phone call away. Mountain View Villa is a more expensive option than we would normally choose but it was one of the most impressive places I have ever stayed and I hope to return with my family in the future.
