Private apartment and sea views in Phuket for under $1000 a week?

You’ve got to be kidding, right? A luxury sea view apartment at Karon Beach, Phuket, for less than $1000 a week? Sounds ludicrous but this is the brave new world of rental condos and villas that’s got travellers like us very, very excited.

OK, maybe for $1000 a week you don’t get absolute beachfront, but this apartment is just a few streets back from the beach and with elevated views over Karon, so it’s just as good and a fraction of the price of a good hotel room in the same area.

The beach and all the amenities of Karon Beach are in easy walking distance. The apartment itself is in a large complex but is clean, airy and comfortable with a nice TV (which we never bother to watch), good wi-fi internet connection (which we do use a lot) and a shared pool (which is nice if you can’t be bothered walking to the beach).

The location is fairly close to the small town of Karon which is very quiet in comparison to Patong and the other main beach areas of Phuket. Karon has nice little bars, restaurants and cafes that will meet all your day to day food and drink needs and if you really want to go into Patong for the night life it’s only 10 minutes away by taxi.

Best of all, you can book this apartment on TripAdvisor with their payment protection and very quick confirmation.
