The community is run by the owners, they employ security and gardeners, no party houses, healthy pool of money to spend on upkeep of comnon areas , very few gated communities are actually run by their exp...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

If you want to buy or rent a house ,today is the day to inspect it, i fear a lot of low lying areas and new projects at the bases of mountains or next to creeks are going to be under water, a house full of mud is not a nice thing

Re: House market in Hua Hin

Great time to inspect houses and house areas with all this rain, some very newly built projects are flooded out.
