WE WILL BE BACK AGAIN SOON...
"We had an amazing 10 days at this beautiful villa & have enjoyed every moment of it. We have visited some amazing places & recommend if you want to play golf that you try Milford Sound Golf Course which is only 10 minutes away. Thank you to Dear for looking after us so well, we are all going to miss this beautiful place. Hopefully we will be back again soon!"

THE VILLA IS FANTASTIC...
"The villa is fantastic, we made good use of the pool & BBQ area in particular! The surrounding garden gives the place a magical feel. There are plenty of places to sit, rest & relax in your own company. We needed a place to relax & de-stress from daily life & this place helped us do just that!
The villa is not only prefect for swimming & sunbathing but it throws a good party too! The local beach is very rustic but has welcomed us with open arms."

DEFINITELY HAS THE WOW FACTOR...
"10 of us stayed at Icandi to celebrate my birthday celebrations, we all agreed it was amazing!
Icandi has delightful en suite bedrooms, 4 of which led out to the patio/pool area, the master suite was on the first floor which also housed the lounge, dining room, kitchen with a 6th smaller bedroom beyond the kitchen. A very clean, large salt water swimming pool (along with lilo's!) was well used, as was the large canopied day bed overlooking the pool. The bbq/breakfast area was a platform over a koi carp large pond - a wonderful treat to watch these fascinating fish. The extensive gardens are beautiful - a daily walk around them was a must. Breakfast was included, which consisted of Thai and western food. Transport definitely needed to get to the Supermarket and Hua Hin (fabulous night market) The housekeeper there will also do shopping for food for a fee. The place is immaculately clean, 2 employees tidy and clean the place daily, beds are changed twice a week (lovely cotton linen!) I booked Icandi about a year before we went. Gayl (owner) in the UK was unbelievably helpful and I was hugely impressed with her patience and kindness. All-in-all we all agreed that another stay is a must! We will definitely be going back."

THANKS TO THE ICANDI TEAM...
"We greatly enjoyed the facilities at Icandi, it is such a lovely villa & our 3 grandchildren,3,6 & 8 years enjoyed it greatly. It was lovely for them all to be together as two of them in Canberra and only see their cousin once a year. They made great use of the Icandi setting, it's various nooks & interesting places - the swinging sala was a favourite spot. The children played endlessly & explored everything! Our gorgeous 5 month old baby enjoyed the cot & the small baby chair that was so kindly arranged. The children loved the swimming pool (as did all the family) & the gorgeous garden with it's 'hidden animal hunt' The Villa is very family friendly & we did appreciate all the planning & care which has gone into developing it all.

FANTASTIC RELAXING HOLIDAY...
We have stayed in Thailand many times and this is by far the most enjoyable stay! The house is amazing, even more beautiful than the photographs and it's obvious the care and attention that has gone into it's construction. We spent most of our time either in the swimming pool or sitting in the BBQ sala...perfect! The garden is absolutely stunning, with lots of different seating areas so no problem if you need a few moment peace. The staff are welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Dear, the house manager, was always available when we needed her and we can't thank her enough for helping to make our stay so memorable and hassle free

WONDERFUL & VERY RELAXING...
At the very last moment we decided to go for some 'rest' after a week in Bangkok. This brought us to Icandi, unfortunately only for 4 days. The house and the gardens are great, we rented a car and made some lovely trips in the area. The beach and restaurants are close. I would say nothing more to wish for a perfect holiday time, we certainly hope to come back again, but to stay longer than 4 days. Thanks again

PERFECT LOCATION FOR A CHRISTMAS GATHERING...
We greatly enjoyed the facilities at Icandi, it's a lovely villa & we all - including the children enjoyed it greatly.Our 3 grandchildren 3,6 & 8 yrs were so happy to be together as 2 of them live in Canberra & only see their cousin from London each year. The kids made great use of the the Icandi setting, it's various nooks & interesting places...the day bed was a favourite spot.They played endlessly & explored everything. Our gorgeous 5 month baby enjoyed the baby crib & the baby chair you had so kindly arranged & she settled in quickly to.
The children loved the swimming pool (as did all the family) and the gorgeous garden with it's 'hidden animals'. The villa is very family friendly & we did appreciate all the planning & care which had gone into developing it all.

A FANTASTIC GROUP HOLIDAY...
We have enjoyed a 2 week break with 6 of our friends at Icandi, with it being a first time trip to Thailand for some of the group which made it extra special! Icandi is a beautiful house with very relaxed atmosphere. Both the swimming pool and pool table have provided hours of entertainment and some interesting competitions with hilarious results! Thank you for a fabulous two weeks.

LUXURIOUS & RELAXING...
Icandi is very luxurious and incredibly relaxing...really gorgeous accommodation. We loved the lazy days sunning ourselves around by the swimming pool with a can or two of chang beer! We spent evenings visiting the night markets in Hua Hin, going to the beach to enjoy authentic Thai cuisine. BBQ's at Icandi were also great fun. The boys loved the pool table. Thank you Icandi.

A GREAT VILLA FOR A FAMILY HOLIDAY...
We have visited Icandi with 2 other couples along with 4 children and we can't begin to tell you how fabulous a family holiday this has been. Big children have been able to properly relax while the slightly smaller children have had loads to entertain themselves with - mostly by being in the swimming pool! Thanks Icandi, we will be back soon! xxx

THE BEST HONEYMOON...
We spent our honeymoon in this wonderful villa and it was the best decision we took! Spacious and luxurious rooms - a beautiful garden with rare flowers everywhere, hammock, wood tables etc... The pool-area is a dream, you can listen to music through the surround sound Sonos player whilst relaxing. This is the perfect house for a romantic holiday or a group of friends and also with kids. Within 5 minutes you can reach the beach where you can get a massage or a delicious traditional thai meal or you can sit and watch the fishermen coming back in. Thank you to the House Manager & the Owner for allowing us to experience this fantastic villa for our Honeymoon. We will come back for sure!

RELAXING & EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE...
We have just returned from a very relaxing two week holiday at Icandi Hideaway. It is the perfect place for a quiet "get away from it all" type of holiday. The villa is of an exceptional standard and is set in the most amazing gardens with an abundance of orchids and various other exotic plants. The views of the "Burma Hills" and the "Sunsets" are breathtaking. The Villa is luxuriously equipped with everything you could possibly want from the extremely comfortable beds to the large and very welcoming pool, which are all kept beautifully clean and well maintained by the very friendly and unobtrusive staff. A visit to the National Park to see the elephants is a must, as is a visit to the nearby city of Hua Hin to shop in the night market and sample the local cuisine. If you are looking for a very relaxing holiday in luxurious surroundings then this is the place for you.

SO MUCH WILDLIFE SO CLOSE TO THE VILLA...
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Icandi - quiet and relaxed with a fantastic pool to swim in. Bedrooms well equipped and beds very comfortable - ideal after the flight. Near to beach (sunrise, sunset and typically Thai fishing fleet) and national parks (wild monkeys and fantastic scenery). A little bit of luxury within touching distance of the real Thailand - we will be back soon.
Mark Hutchings | South of England
I visited Icandi Hideaway this year and I can’t wait to go there again. The villa is amazing and the standard is exceptional; everything is just perfect, the garden is beautiful and the atmosphere serene. You can relax in peace and enjoy every minute of it. I really recommend Icandi as a place to stay I wish I could stay there for ever.
