Things to know about Rents in Phuket

What’s a Good Rental Price?

Rents in Phuket Breaks Down the Rental Market for You

When you’re looking for your vacation home, it can be hard to know whether you’re getting a good deal and what affects the prices. At Rents in Phuket, we’re here to keep you informed, so that you can choose the best holiday rentals for you and your budget. We have it all, right from economical rooms to luxury waterfront properties to rent in Phuket. When it comes to your budget, here are some things to consider:

Proximity to the Beach

Vacation rentals that are right on the beachfront will come at a higher price than places from which you need to walk or take a short journey to the beach. Let’s face it, nothing beats being able to step out of your rental onto the white sand of a tropical beach, so it’s definitely worth paying more to have the Andaman Sea right on your doorstep. However, if you’d like to save money, many rentals offer convenient shuttle buses to the beach, and others, like this Zen-style private pool villa in Nai Harn, are just a short walk away.

Everybody wants to see a spectacular view, and a panorama of the Andaman Sea at sunset is something to behold. Like all property prices, an unforgettable view comes at a premium. Sea views are worth every penny, but there is a way to get an ocean view without breaking the bank. There are many apartments and condos with stunning rooftop pools and restaurants. Also, properties that are not right on the beachfront but located on hills offer some of the best views in Phuket.

Type of Property

Due to their size, facilities and privacy, luxury pool villas come at a higher price than apartments and condos. Many villas have their own private pool and tropical garden, making them ideal for families and groups who want to relax and spend quality time together in a private setting. On the other hand, more affordable condos and apartments are ideal for single travelers and couples.


Just like any other place in the world, Phuket has its most sought-after areas, such as a stretch of Kamala known as “Millionaire’s Mile.” This is the ultimate luxury location and home to many exclusive residences, 5-star resorts, the hottest entertainment venues, and rentals like this fully-serviced family-sized condo. For those who like access to amenities but don’t need to be in the most elite area, parts of Patong have some more affordable holiday rentals that are just steps away from lively nightlife.

Level of Luxury

If you have the budget for it, go for the ultimate luxury and book a beachfront villa with all the trimmings – we can guarantee you’ll not be disappointed.

However, if you’re looking for something more affordable, a luxurious, resort-style apartment like this tranquil mountain view apartment in Bang Tao, still has all the services and facilities you could desire. Many serviced apartments offer shuttle buses to and from the beach and town, so you not only save on the rental but also take the hassle out of transportation.

Whatever rental you seek, we hope that the above will help you choose the right vacation home for your budget and understand what affects holiday home prices in Phuket, so that you can make an informed decision. Depending on your priorities, you can compromise on certain aspects to get the best rental for you and your loved ones.
