5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "The Best. This apartment offers all the amenities you could possibly want and is very clean and well maintained. The views from the balcony are beautiful. The street directly in front of the hotel has at least 9 restaurants all offering very good Thai and Western food at very reasonable prices. There is also a Family Mart and a bottle shop in the same street which is very convenient. The beach is only 1 to 2 mins. straight up the street. Jungceylon shopping centre is only a 5 min. walk. If you are interested in party life, Bangla Road is also only 3 to 5 mins. away. The apartment is quiet and you do not hear any street noise. For me the best part of staying here was the excellent feedback you get from the owner, Ken. He was so very helpful and answered all my questions promptly. I feel like I know him and I really appreciated that personal touch. Will definitely stay here again.

I had some friends visit me during my stay and they too are now interested in staying at this condo."

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Perfect Condo which leaves no wishes. I was staying in Ken’s Condo in January 2016. The Condo is very well equipped. There is really nothing missing at all. Patong Tower is very central. All what you need is reachable in Walking distance. Unbeatable is the balcony and the view from it. Every evening at 7 pm the nice firework Display at Paradise Beach :-) I spent most of time on the balcony reading. The balcony has sun from approx. 2 pm on. However, if People rather stay in the shadow, a sun umbrella is available. I will for sure spent another time in this Condo, after being several times in Patong, I think, I found the perfect place for me :-).

Thanks again Ken for the very nice contact, uncomplicated booking and your Support, whenever needed."

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Great Stay. We stayed in Ken's apartment for 12 weeks (July to Sept 2015) and had a great stay. The apartment has everything you could possibly need. Bed & pillows were good. Room was cleaned every 3 days & the cleaning lady even brought fresh flowers.

It was great to sit on the balcony every morning overlooking the sea & have our coffee. It's also great to sit and watch people on jet skis and parasailers. Sunsets are also great.

The apartment is close to everything - restaurants, mini mart, clothing shops, pharmacy, liquor store and massage ladies. You can even hand your washing in (for a very small cost) to the girls below in the Tower office and get it back the next day.

Ken (the owner) answered any queries we had very quickly. The girls in the office were helpful and speak good English."

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "First class rental, from a Great Dane. I have just returned from a 3 week stay at Patong Tower in apartment 1503. The Owner Ken had helped me a great deal with my different questions about certain things I needed to know. A taxis as requested met me at the airport and drove me to the tower in just under an hour. Upon arrival the reception people were aware of my arrival and in next to no time I was sat in the lounge area of the apartment. Upon inspection everything was spotlessly clean, and the description in the advertisement was exactly as described. After a good night's sleep I awoke early drew back the blinds, and a wonderful view of the beach and the Anderman Sea was laid out before me, indeed it was breathtaking. I have spent a very happy three weeks there, everything was to hand and the location is excellent. I had a few queries about certain things and the people at Andaman travel the letting agents were only to pleased to help. All in all a first class experience, and would recommend this apartment and its owner Ken to anyone."

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "What a Gem. Love, Love, Love this place. This 1 bedroom apartment is a gem. It was home away from home, my partner and myself loved it. We stayed 14 nights and had the best time as this is our 9th time to Phuket and decided to stay somewhere different other than a hotel/resort.

The view from the balcony looking over the ocean was breathtaking. We had breakfast out on the balcony daily and each evening with a glass of wine sitting watching the beautiful sunsets each night and the beautiful fireworks on the beach in front of the apartment.

The apartment is so close to everything, restaurants, mini mart, liquor store (very handy), Massage (Limones- quite good) and 200m from the beach.

The apartment was very clean and the cleaning lady came in every few days and cleaned & she took our washing and brought it back the next day ironed and folded. She was lovely so I gave her an extra 500 Baht ($20) as she also bought flowers in.

Ken, the owner, who is now my new BFF, was wonderful to deal with he answered all my questions even when he is on the other side of the world.

The staff checking in and checking out were great as well and very helpful and have quite good English.

I would hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. We are going to stay again sometime next year and we can’t wait.

The apartment is very quiet, there is the occasional firecracker about 3am but we got used to it, it didn't bother us at all and we couldn't hear the music once inside the apartment from Bangla Rd."

Response from owner: Regarding the noise from fireworks, then I am pleased to announce that the sliding doors and window to the balcony have now been replaced with new ones of very high insulation, in Swiss quality from Sun Paradise.

3-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Ok. Not at all luxury, but well equipped middle class (3 star) apartment in a 2-3 star building. Nice view. Little bit dirty (dust in side boards above 160 cm, pillows in bedroom disgusting). Nightly firework- cracker between 2 am - 4 am in front of the condo."

Response from owner: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and to let us know that your stay was not all that it should have been. We take great pride in the quality and cleanliness of our condo, and we will certainly make sure that the deficiencies you cited are quickly corrected. We hope that you will return someday so that we will have a chance to provide you with the high quality of stay that we strive to maintain.

But unfortunately we cannot control the fireworks which are shot along the whole beach in Patong, from South to North. Everyone in this area is affected by this – not only residents in Patong Tower.

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Great apartment. The best apartment we have stayed in at Patong Tower. Everything you can ever need in the apartment, spacious, great view, quiet and of course great location. Will use again."

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Posizione indimenticabile. L'appartamento perfettamente arredato ed in posizione centrale ha un balcone vista mare dove si possono ammirare stupendi panorami e tramonti da togliere il fiato. Tutto è stato perfetto. Lo consiglio senza problemi."

4-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Excellent views. Fully equipped condo, everything you could wish for. Central to shops & restaurants. One slight drawback is the lack of a swimming pool. We stayed for 9 days & had to pay an additional 2100 Baht for the use of water & electricity."

Peter G, Sydney, Australia. July 2013.

Response from owner: There IS actually a swimming pool right in front of Patong Tower, and the renovation was finished in December 2013. There are also sun loungers now, so the pool has become even more popular.

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Amazing. We rented this apartment to celebrate Christmas and New Year in Patong. We can only say: Amazing, amazing. The best view in town. The apartment has a great location in the heart of Patong in walking distance from almost everything. The apartment has everything you need for a perfect vacation. If any problems the help is nearby. Cleaning service was also very good."

H. H., Naestved, Denmark. January 2013.

4-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Had a great time and felt comfortable in the apartment. I loved the place. Once we were booked in it was like our own condo.

Probably not recommended for people that want the tourist resort experience, but if you know what it would be like to live in paradise this is the experience for you. Very close to everything. Options are endless. You can go shopping and make your own meals etc. or just go down to the many restaurants. I tend to stay in this type of accommodation when we travel and I found this one to be one of the best."

Ian H, Australia. August 2012.

"Phuket and in particular Patong is very popular with Australian particularly during the southern hemisphere wintertime. It is reasonably close to Australia, inexpensive, the people are friendly and English is spoken by a large number of the natives.

We had been to Thailand previously, however, on those occasions we had stayed in hotels. This time we thought we would try an apartment, more room and more freedom with regard to eating and general upkeep. We started a web search and soon locked onto Patong Tower. The units seemed to be reasonably priced and extremely central to Patong in general. Within walking distance there is the famous Bangla Road, the beach is out the front and the call of class shopping is at JungCeylon just around the corner. In fact the Big C supermarket there has to be one of the best of its type in the world. The markets in Patong abound as is the cry of “DVD boss”,” Tuk Tuk Mister” and of course “Masaaarge”.

With the units at the tower there is a lot of false advertising, liberal use of photos from the Patong Resort at the back of the tower seems to be the norm. However, we found the advertising and web site of S1503 to be accurate and the owner very friendly. The unit is high enough to give a spectacular view but low enough for the access to the reception to be reasonable. We live in a high-rise building so we are aware of things such as lifts and services in case of outages such as electrical power faults.

Overall we had a very pleasant stay in the unit and would recommend it to anyone even with a small family of one or two children."

"Our holiday was organized, and of course, our favorite place to go was Thailand where we had been many times before. We were tired of hotels, so this time we would rent an apartment.

It went like for us last year that we met a girl who had an apartment in Patong Tower in Phuket, and she told us that you could rent apartments in the building. We went there and immediately fell for an ad where there was an apartment to rent for hedonists. We wrote the telephone number down and called the owner who turned out to be Danish like us. We got a deal on a month's holiday in the apartment in 2012.

We arrived in Phuket on April 11th in the beautiful weather, and should according to agreement be picked up at the airport, but something went wrong, so we went by taxi to Patong. When we arrived at Patong Tower the staff was sorry about the mistake at the airport and told that the car that was supposed to pick us had taken a wrong pair. This was to understand, and we got the taxi bill refunded. The staff followed us to the apartment on 15th floor of and put us into the various modern facilities, and I must say that the pictures that were shown in the ad actually did not justify reality that was so nice. Simply nothing was missing; even a pair of binoculars was there, so we could sit out on the lovely balcony and look out over the sea and the city, yes, I must say we were very happy with a stance like this, close to the beach and within walking distance of just about anything, eateries, trade opportunities, etc.

I will just add to the female cleaner who looked after the apartment was superb, flowers and fruit on the table almost every day. When we go to Thailand for maybe 1 year or so, it is definitely the same place. As my wife says, THIS IS LIFE."

Birgit & Vagn Kikkenborg, Kastrup, Denmark. April 2012 (translated from Danish).

"Here a few words concerning my stay at your apartment in Patong: I felt at home right away, everything from the kitchen to the DVD-player, the fully equipped desk to the stowage room in the bedroom, the stereo to the efficient AirCon fits my needs perfectly. I especially liked my morning coffee on the balcony with in front of me just the Andaman Sea ....

With other words, I will certainly consider to book your apartment again, when I return to Patong ...and this usually happens twice a year these last years ... !"

Andreas Bichsel, Switzerland. December 2011.

"We spent two holidays in your beautiful apartment, lucky to find a time where it was not booked. This was different than living in a hotel. From the first minute I felt very much home, it was a perfect place to recover from all the hustle on this exciting place, Patong. It can never be boring there, doesn’t matter if there is a storm or perfect beach weather. Everything is in a foot walk distance, no need to take a TUKTUK, you just have to find the right direction when you leave the tower. Beach or JungCeylon or … nightlife? And if you like cooking from time to time, you can use the well equipped kitchen and get ingredients that you will hardly find in Germany. You will never miss fireworks in the night. The apartment is really luxurious, just look at the picture gallery! We will try to come back!"

Horst Olbrich, Germany. September & November 2011.

5-star rating Review from TripAdvisor: "Unforgettable time of my stay. First of all I must say this Sea-View Apartment is an excellent place to stay. I stayed at this place for my honeymoon period. When I checked in and entered the room, the bed was decorated with flowers and my newly married wife was so happy to see it. From the bedroom we could see clear sea view and sun set. We spent most of our time in the room and we enjoyed to stay at the balcony to feel the evening's atmosphere of Patong Beach. I would love to stay there again and enjoy this paradise."

R. K., Karon, Thailand. July 2011.

"It was a lovely week in your apartment in Patong. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is a very nice apartment with wonderful views. The cleaning is plentiful and of a high standard. The apartment is situated close to the town and beach. If you wish for peace and quiet there is a nice pool in the complex. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful."

Carla & Erling Christensen, Denmark. March 2011 (translated from Danish).

"Thank you for your lines and for looking after us. We are completely satisfied with your apartment in Patong Tower. All our friends who came to see us, were baffled and partly envious. The view is fantastic. Yesterday we had a look at the Queen Mary 2 which obviously cruises at this time in the waters here around. It's a strange but beautiful feeling to watch the jewel of the British civilian fleet from one's balcony.

The apartment corresponds fully to your documentation in the internet. We are happy here. It is elegantly and tastefully furnished and fulfills all our expectations. And we are used to high standards from our home in Austria. All is perfect.

We looked at some apartments because we're searching accomodation for next vacations. No comparison. Furniture tasteless, bulky, uncomfortable. But we have an Austrian friend in the estate business who will help us. He told us July is the best time to look for an accomodation, and he will do this for us.

I have to tell you that Khun Pit, Tukki and all people from Andaman tours are friendly, helpful, so sweet that you could kiss them all. They try to fulfill each wish you have and each need you feel. A perfect staff. We congratulate to your choice.

And buy and furnish some apartments more. (Only a silly joke.) We wish you all the best. Compliments to your wife. Best wishes for your kid. And a Thank you for you."

Hertha & Heinz Wasserbauer, Austria. February 2010.

Guzeev Maxim, Moscow, Russia. September 2009.

"Vom 17. Dezember 2008 bis 15. Januar 2009 waren wir in diesem Appartement und verbrachten dort einen wunderbaren Urlaub. Der Blick vom 15. Stockwerk des Patong Tower über das Meer ist überwältigent. Das Appartement hat alle Einrichtungen die man braucht. Es ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet mit extra Schlafzimmer und Wohnzimmer mit einer komplett ausgestatteten Küche. Am Balkon zu sitzen ist ein besonderes Erlebnis, wegen der herrlichen Aussicht.

Der wöchentliche Zimmerservice ist sehr gut und in den beiden Damen Khun Pit und Khun Tukki hat man gute Ansprechpartner, was das Appartement betrifft. Zum Strand sind es nur ein paar Minuten, Strandhandtücher sind vorhanden.

Wir wollten im Januar 2010 wieder unseren Urlaub im Appartement verbringen. Leider ist es zu dieser Zeit schon von einem österreichischem Paar gebucht. Wir wollen versuchen zu einer anderen Zeit zu kommen. Das Appartement im 15. Stockwerk des Patong Tower ist sehr zu empfehlen und zu einem vernünftigen Preis zu buchen."

Renate & Helmut Pfeffer, Bayern, Deutschland. Januar 2009.

"My wife and I have just spent the last 6 nights in your wonderful apartment, you should be very proud of it. A very special thanks to Lusy who made it all possible she is a wonderful young lady. Thanks once again.

If my wife and I or any of our relations or friends wish to travel to Phuket we will certainly recommend your apartment."

Terrence Gardiner, Australia. June 2008.

"Just arrived home after another wonderful week in Thailand. The apartment was so great that my youngest daughter didn't even come to Bangkok, preferring to enjoy Patong for the whole week, and my oldest daughter and I cut our stay in Bangkok from 3 days to 2 days!!

The check in worked out fine. Lusy is lovely and did everything she needed to do. She showed us the apartment on the night we arrived and told us how to find her if we needed her. The lovely gold bedcover was on the bed and we folded it up and put it in the cupboard so that it didn't get crushed.

The fridge was cold and contained 6 complimentary drinks, a lovely touch when we arrived late at night. We replaced them though because we don't think you should be out of pocket!!

As well as being there to greet us, Lusy also bid us farewell as we left which was very nice. She speaks very good English which is always nice, especially for those who are in Thailand for the first time.

Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment which ensured a lovely holiday in Patong. I am a smoker and my girls hate the smell so I was banned to the balcony! I didn't mind though because the view and the lights were magnificent and, one night, there was an Elvis impersonator performing somewhere along the beach road. I could hear him very clearly from the balcony and sat out there for a couple of hours enjoying many of my favourite songs!!

We will certainly contact you again when we next come to Patong and will recommend you to our friends. If there is anything else you want to know about our stay, please don't hesitate to email me. Thanks again."
