As some of you are aware, Mayan Apartments has undergone some extensive refurbishment quite recently and I can say it looks pretty impressive.
I can say that with all honesty as I am currently staying here in their showcase apartment.
My name is Kaz Beresford and you could say that for a short while I’m kind of the ‘writer in residence’.
It’s a great idea to have someone who is holidaying here to contribute to spreading the word about this fabulous place.
As some of you know the original owner Steve Emma passed away a few years ago. I knew him quite well. He was a frequent visitor to many places where I sang here in Phuket a few years ago when I was a full-time resident of Phuket. He loved music and we chatted a lot about teaching as I was also employed many times in many places as a Language Training Manager.
My last place of employment was Serenity Resort in Rawai. Under the same contract I also trained staff at Friendship Beach and it was here that I saw Steve and his friends and family many times. He had a reputation for being a ‘salt of the earth’ kind of person, generous in spirit, kind and quite free-spirited.
I can’t claim to have known him well, but by reputation he is someone I would have liked to have known more deeply. Bless you Steve……………
But as life moves on and no more quickly than here in Phuket, Steve’s legacy having moved through many incarnations, now emerges as Mayan Apartments with a new management team including Steve’s son Patrick………………
This new era is about to begin………………………..
a chat with Bruce revealed all sorts of interesting stuff about why Mayan Apartments was built.
The intriguing story about Steve Emma continues…………..
Life is tumbling along here at Mayan Apartments in the usual ‘sabai sabai’ fashion, meaning slow, comfy and easy.
