Knowing what you want and need
As with most things in life, knowing what you want and need is important. Renting long-term in Phuket is no different. Do you want to be a short walk from the beach? How far from the nearest school do you need to be? Is being near a good supermarket important? All these things and more need to be thought about to help you narrow down your search for a suitable property.
Monthly budget is the most important factor in deciding which long-term rental properties can be considered. Phuket has many long-term accommodation options spanning a wide price range. It is important to be honest with yourself and our agents when discussing this. Being transparent about your maximum budget will help save you time and ensure you get the best possible options offered to you.
Length of stay
Prices of long-term villas and apartments in Phuket drop considerably the longer you stay. Discounts typically apply at the monthly, 3 and 6 monthly, and yearly stay lengths. Sometimes staying an extra month can make a lot of sense if it greatly reduces the overall price.
If you’re renting long-term in Phuket but only planning on staying half of the year, you'll want to pick the right half for you! Phuket has two weather seasons, wet and dry. The wet season is from July to November, during which time it rains a lot, hence the name. The dry season from December to June is hot, dry and sunny but is also the most popular and busiest time of year.
Modern apartments and villas in Phuket come complete with full western kitchens and air-conditioners throughout. For a more authentic experience, Thai style accommodation can be rented at a cheaper price. There are also hybrid styles which infuse Thai style with modern furnishings. You're better off looking at a range of different styles before committing to either.
To secure a long-term rental you will normally have to pay a months deposit upfront. This may be more or less depending on the length of stay. There is also usually a security or damage deposit which covers the owner in the event of damage to the property or furnishings.
Make sure you rent long-term through a trusted agent in Phuket. Established agents normally have good relationships with their clients so f something goes wrong or there is a problem with your rental ithey are able to mediate on your behalf. You can of course rent directly from the owner but in the vent of a problem you are very much on your own.
