Swaying coconut trees, a glassy-calm bay, vivid sunrises, jungle-clad hills: those seeking to escape into a classic tropical scene will find it here at Noble House – one of the most peaceful and picturesque villa locations we've found in Phuket. Here, you feel hidden away from the world yet it's less than 15 minutes by car to Phuket Town or Chalong Pier. We spent a lot of time in and around the pool, taking in the view, watching the activity in the bay. Couples will especially enjoy the relaxed pace of life here. Younger kids will need to be watched closely around the pool (which is 2m deep throughout), but they will have fun at the beach collecting shells and splashing in the shallow sea. The spacious lawn that stretches across the front of Noble House and neighbouring Villa Hai Leng offers plenty of running-around space, too. This sheltered, busy bay does not have the most crystal-clear water but it's perfectly safe for swimming – just don't venture too close to the pearl farm buoys or you'll be shooed away! Noble House is a new villa (built 2011) and the owners are hands-on and open to suggestions – be sure to give advance notice of any requirements you may have for children's equipment, bedding or other facilities. Aside from the daily breakfast service this is a self-catering villa but we do recommend hiring the private chef at least once during your stay. This can be arranged with the villa manager. We enjoyed a marvellous, beautifully presented seafood dinner on the terrace. Though we were happy to remain lazily sequestered in the villa, it is worth venturing out for at least one afternoon to drive the scenic roads around the cape. There are plenty of places to stop along the way and take in the views or enjoy a cool drink in a shady hut.

Highlights

Location, location, location! Noble House has an excellent beachfront position with only the two other Moon Cove villas nearby. We really enjoyed watching the comings and goings of the yachts and seeing local families strolling the sands or tending to their boats.

Surprises

There are some precarious drops from the sliding glass doors in the master bedroom and dining room, and the deep pool has no safety fence so toddlers will need to be watched closely.
