AFter the recent scam story with AibBnb I made a jet-dive-Inn into the villa rental picture of today, and going to get share the results of my impressions and even will try to use them for "common benefits".. The most surprising for me were following news:
- high cost of Airbbb - both parties pay 21%, no matter with bank or Paypal (even tried to get statistic, but noone else among the hosts around wanted to spend a time in calculating, what also means communication with guests);
- no any real competition among the web-companies - locals went off, and other monsters went wrong - expired-looking software of vrbo, strange admin panel of flipkey with their e-mails in spam folder,
Was in construction for the time enough to built a Palace, High Stone Villa recently was completed. Some of the most delicate, hard and important jobs was made by the owner himself. Then, when the villa was done and koh Phangan stock was thorouthly explored, owners went to travel - first around the Thailand, then South-East Asian neighbours, then the rest of the world, what was easy. At the day I visited the house I can say - its look perfect, and worth all the efforts which were made. Spacious, with a few different outdoor chill areas, its has two residence spaces - house for guest next to the main 2-floored one.
Avoiding long stories about the place you'll stay or not, we going to post more photos, video-clip and best rates, together with owner's direct contqact for booking on dedicated villa page.
