Villa Livadia is a beautiful place to spend a relaxing holiday. It is close to the pristine Nai Harn beach while still offering privacy and quiet.

Quiet get away
Stayed for 5 nights with 2 families (5 a/5 k). Plenty of room. Pool was nice when we didn’t want to go to beach. Neighborhood was quiet. It is a 20 min walk down to beach or up to main eating area so hard to walk in heat or with little kids. We used grab to call taxi when needed. Drive from airport was about 50 min. Communication with manager Poppy was easy through WhatsApp. One of the bedroom at the bottom does have musty smell but if you turn on AC beforehand, then it’s not as bad. AC works well.
The villa was exactly as described. We were disappointed to have missed the driver who we asked to meet us, but found our own driver easily enough. The local beach is really perfect, but because we were travelling with children, definitely needed a car. This was also easily arranged. Sonia responded to all messages promptly. I would recommend the villa and the location.
We have just returned from a great holiday at this lovely villa. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space for all of us. The outdoor space was perfect for a day by the pool or to come back to after a day out exploring.
Sonia's answered all our questions very quickly during the booking process and before we arrived and the management team once there are extremely helpful, answering any questions we had and putting us in touch with someone who arranged trips for us. There was a lovely bowl of fruit and water in the fridge for us on our arrival.
We did numerous trips, including an elephant sanctuary, Thai cooking class, hiring a driver for the day to take us on a tour of the island and a boat trip to Phi Phi.
Nai Harn beach is about 20 minutes walk away and we all loved it, nicer than any of the other beaches we visited when there. There are restaurants, bars, shops and money exchange booths. The main street is about 20 minutes walk in the opposite direction. There are no pavements and the road is very windy, which was fine during the day but we tended to take a cab at night. There is a restaurant at the Naya Bungalows, which is 2 minutes walk from the villa and the people there were very friendly.
The villa and pool were cleaned regularly during our stay.
All in all we had a wonderful stay, we would definitely recommend this and are very sorry that we have had to come home!
We stayed at the villa for 9 nights after having issues with our pre booked villa. Sonia and her team in Thailand were so quick to respond and got the villa ready for us within hours!
The villa is lovely and very well kept by the housekeeping team who came regularly. There were some nice touches on arrival such as fresh fruit and water! The villa is located close to restaurants, beach and shops which was great.
It was a great villa and I’d highly recommend it!
Thanks Sonia for a wonderful stay!
Great Family House!
The property managers Kris and Aisawan were extremely helpful during our stay at the beautiful Villa Livadia (handling the delivery of a piece of lost luggage late at night, for example), and our whole family loved our time here! Especially time spent playing in the beautiful and well-maintained pool!! AC worked perfectly, and the cleaning staff that came every other day took care of things thoroughly but unobtrusively/respectfully and with many friendly smiles and bows. We were thrilled to find ice trays in the freezer and an effective blender in the fridge, so we had everything we needed to make our own fresh fruit shakes on the super cheap!! (it's so easy to find delicious fresh fruit at stalls along most roads here, along 4233 and down near the beach - we were swimming in perfectly ripe mangos, dragon fruit, pineapples, papayas, bananas, coconuts - YUM!)
The two downsides to this booking that we experienced were as follows:
1) One of the 4 bedrooms is located downstairs, and it had an unfortunate musty/moldy quality to its air. The room had an air purifier, but even with that running 24/7 the air was still not good.
2) The location "pin drop" in the VRBO ad we saw made it look like the house was about 100m from Nai Harn beach, right behind the PC Beach Shop, which is very misleading. The house is actually about 1.8km from the beach. Still walkable, but nothing like being "on the beach" like we'd initially thought we'd be...
All in all, we had a wonderful time here at Villa Livadia and gladly recommend it to others as a highly enjoyable way to experience Phuket.
The property was very clean and well managed. This was perfect for our vacation.
The villa itself is in a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors are nice as well. The cleaning crew was very respectful of our space if we were in the house during cleaning.
After long days of traveling and tourism related activities, it was nice to have a quick swim in the pool. I would definitely rent this space again if I ever travel to Phuket again.
