Our Guarantee of Best Price and Quality

How do you select the villas in Phuket?

Phuket is teeming with spectacular villas – beachside or otherwise – as is evident from their images, however, sometimes what you see is not what you get. Keeping that in mind, we handpick each and every villa you see on our website and our experts visit every site individually to make sure everything is top-notch: from the physical to the qualitative attributes. If there are cases where the villa is perfect but close to an ongoing construction site or lacking in terms of quality, we make sure to take that into account. Quality-checks are done regularly, to ensure the high standards of our luxury villas after the first round of inspections.

Do you really inspect all villas?

Rest assured that we do! Each villa visited by our specialist goes through a pre-inspection and it’s only after all the requirements are met that a villa gets our approval. And we don’t just stop here, we make sure to do regular visits to keep everything up-to-date and ensure that quality is at par at all times!

How do you guarantee the quality?

We have a team of villa specialists who take it upon themselves to deliver the best quality accommodation to guests. They do quality checks physically at each villa with a checklist of quality requirements. It is only when each item has been ticked off and the specialists have seen it first-hand that a villa gets listed on our website. From time to time, our specialists pay each of these villas a visit to ensure everything’s running smoothly. You needn’t worry as villa quality is our top priority!

How can you guarantee the best price?

At Villa Finder, healthy relationships with our clients and villa owners is crucial and so we work together to come up with the most efficient pricing for each villa rental. Our guarantee of the best price holds true and if ever you find a better price anywhere other than our website, we will happily settle the difference!

How come there is no service fee? How do you make money?

We offer our services to the villa owners and get paid by them directly. To avoid confusion, our model is to simply bring customers to their villas by listing them on our website. This in turn promises efficiency and, most importantly, no booking fee for you!
