We are an British expat family (investment banker and retired marketing research professional, with 4 young children) living in Hong Kong. We are open to swapping our beautiful holiday home in Phuket, Thailand for a house/apartment in a rural or beachside location in the UK, France, Spain or Italy (a swap for another holiday home would be our preference).
Our property is just a 3 minute walk from the beautiful 6km long Bangtao beach. It is located in a secure high-end gated development with a lovely communal swimming pool and children's paddling pool and landscaped gardens. The spacious apartment (approx 2500 sq ft) comprises open plan living, dining and kitchen areas, utility room, 3 double bedrooms (all with en-suite bathrooms). Each of the bedrooms opens onto the terrace which surrounds the property and the front terrace opens directly onto a large lawned area which provides a safe place for children to play and for adults to enjoy relax and a sunset drink. There are 2 baby cots and up to two extra folding beds available if needed.
Our property is directly facing the very best bit of Bangtao beach - this section of the beach is uncrowded even in peak season, but sprinkled with a few nice beach bars and local Thai restaurants - and a 15 minute walk along the beach to the glitzy Nikki Beach Club.
Chom Tawan is also adjacent to the 5-star Laguna hotel, shopping and golf development - so all the facilities of this complex and lots of Thai and international restaurants and high end supermarkets and bakeries are within a few minutes drive.
As our Phuket property is a holiday home exchanges would not need to be simultaneous.
We would recommend car hire to get the best out of your stay at Chom Tawan.
