“KhukKhak near Phuket was not on our bucket list but a lovely message from Kathryn and Patrick requesting a swap got us checking out flights and the swap was confirmed, we were on our way to an amazing and interesting destination. One and half hours from Phuket airport we arrived to an unspoiled community of bush huts ,open kitchen and lovely local people. Our home was very comfortable and had the convenience of air conditioning and fresh drinking water. We would walk down the street each night to the local restaurants which were friendly and the food was excellent. We had the use of a car to get us to the many beautiful beaches only minutes away. Coconut and White Sands Beaches were amongst our favourites where the restaurants set up candle lit tables each night replacing the sun lounges on the sand and lots of fairy lights to add a wonderful atmosphere. It was all just a fabulous experience. Ample sightseeing opportunities and night markets also available. Thank you Kathryn and Patrick for the use of your home and allowing us this fabulous opportunity to visit such a beautiful part of Thaïland.”
