Well, not quite. The ‘Rottweiler’ in question is a security guard. And he really is quite fierce – although I’m pretty sure he’s human.
No matter how many times I visit this estate near Layan Beach in Phuket, Thailand he always demands to see my ID. Then he’ll spend ages suspiciously comparing my face to my photo. But he is only doing his job – and pretty well too.
After all, you don’t want some slob who barely looks up from his newspaper before he lets people into your home. I was going to include his photo but I chickened-out of asking him. He really is quite scary.
Anyway, eventually he opened the heavy, wrought-iron gates and let me into ‘The Garden of Eden’…
Again, not really. But this 5-bedroom Thai style villa does have the best garden I’ve ever seen on the West Coast of Phuket. At 4,000m2 it’s one of the biggest too. All immaculately landscaped with tropical plants and trees. It’s so well-done you can’t even see another house.
Steps lead you from ‘Eden’ up to the infinity-edge swimming pool…
With its massive sun terrace and Thai sala – this is the main entertainment zone of the house. It is ideal for throwing parties – especially if you have a chef. Because next to the pool is an open-kitchen with a BBQ, an oven and a hob. There’s also an air-conditioned games room with a pool table and dart-board.
The master suite is on this floor too. Its large dressing-room has fitted wardrobes with ornately carved wooden doors. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, twin wash basins and a bathtub. And there is a private living room (with built-in book cases) which would make an ideal study.
The main living area is on the next floor up. Here you’ll find a large living room, separate dining room and a family-sized, fully-fitted kitchen. Outside is a huge covered terrace which feels a bit colonial thanks to the wicker sofas and armchairs.
On the top floor are 4 en-suite guest bedrooms in 2 separate pavilions. All the bathrooms have walk-in showers and bathtubs. And there is enough wardrobe space to keep Imelda Marcos happy.
Make no mistake – this is a big house. It is 670m2 inside and a whopping 1,100m2 outside. And because it’s on 3 levels, there is plenty of privacy for everyone.
The villa is on a secure private estate – just a 5 minute drive to Layan Beach. You can even walk it if you are feeling energetic.
The only down-side? It doesn’t have an ocean view. But if peace, quiet and a beautiful garden are more important to you – this might be right up your street. You’ll also have some dramatic mountain views.
How much is it? The sellers are asking 54,995,000 Baht (US$ 1,780,000).That’s much less than you would pay for the same villa with an ocean view. But they are very keen to sell and will consider all reasonable offers. In fact, I know they will take a LOT LESS than that.

Robert Eversz’s edgy and endearing heroine Nina Zero is back…and this time she’s embroiled in her most dangerous case ever — investigating L.A.’s underground S&M scene while getting caught up in sex, lies, and babysitting. It’s opening night of Nina Zero’s first gallery show, and her staged photographs of Hollywood pulp scenes are attracting the interest of actual art connoisseurs, not just the usual gossip rag readership. But the excitement of the evening shifts to alarm when Nina receives an anonymous package containing an amateur bondage video that may have ended in death. As she and her editor at Scandal Times watch the rape and strangling of a young woman, Nina Zero recognizes a distinctive tattoo on the woman’s right shoulder, and suddenly realizes why one of her models has missed the opening. Who sent the tape? And more important, what happened to the woman? Nina starts investigating her model and discovers a parallel life of S&M phone sex, blogs written in code, an illicit relationship with a celebrity hypnotherapist, and ties to the son of a billionaire film director. Her Scandal Times coverage of the case enrages the LAPD and attracts death threats from anonymous sources. Luckily, Nina has her trusted (but toothless) Rottweiler by her side, as well as a sexy but mysterious detective who keeps landing in her bed. Just when events begin to spin from her control, Nina’s deeply dysfunctional family enters the fray, making life even more complicated for this ex-con with a soft heart and a chip on her shoulder. Set in a vividly sunny and sinister Los Angeles, Zero to the Bone is the best (and sexiest) Nina Zero novel yet.
