    Nice enough place.
    I assume he built this with the intention that you could turn it into a nice boutique hotel.

    Is it just me or does this guy remind you of an Ewok?

    This home is beautiful, but i think the rooms are oversized a little. It does have that boutique hotel feel, as if the owner renovated it to a house like the Versace mansion in Miami. My first thought when i hear (Thailand beachfront) is a tsunami. But the home is one of the nicest beach homes I’ve seen in a long time. For $26 million i think it’s a good deal

      Judging a country today based on what it was like almost 40 years ago (while involved in a war, no less) seems kind of stupid.

        Cal I spoke of my feelings, not someone elses. But they don’t call it the third world for nothing. Also the ownership of anything and the safety of the residents depend on the stability of the government.

          third world???? I don’t think anyone who has been to Thailand in the last decade would call it third world!

          there are no safety issues in Phuket, crime rates are low and there was no sign of any political trouble during last years Red shirts protests. Thai people are some of the nicest and welcoming you will ever come across.

          Suggest getting facts right before making spurious comments about a country 40 years after you visited!!

            Thailand is officially termed a developing country. Living conditions are quite good. The people generally are also good. However, like anywhere else, there is crime, scams, shady characters and an often corruptible police force. So, if you are wealthy and there is a way to shake you down, that would be entirely in the realm of probability. There are many stories to back up these statements.

            Thailand is known as the brothel of the world.
            So how can you call people that “sell” their own daugher’s asset? I will certainely not call them nice or warmful.
            About crime rate, if you read the local newspaper, you will see its very very high.Everyday you read story about beating, murder, thieves and so on. Officialy there are 10 time more murder in thailand than in U.K.

    Marvelous! Spectacular! Incredible!

    This stunning contemporary mansion is considered a modern masterpiece from every aspect: The exterior is unique, while the interior is marvelous and surprisingly not cold for such a massive house.The home theater room and the living room are excellent.

    Bangkok Bank is just going to LOVE this house when they repossess it after California WOW’s gone bankrupt now and can’t pay its multi-million baht loan…

    Funny, there are Thai government lackeys that easily have at least a billion baht in their pockets.

    Eric Levine is a scam artist, just search his name up. Various pending lawsuits and various business owners commenting online trying to sell him stuff that are no good.

    WoW – so this is where Levine’s money went that he robbed from his Gym members. Company bankrupt, customers left paying massive installments for membership and training, and Levine flees the country.

    I have stayed in this villa- calling it a house is an understatement.
    the home is spectacular and in an area that was untouched by the tsunami- each room is elequently designed and well thought out, yes very large but somehow still feels warm and comfortable. 10 washrooms, 2 pools, little golf course on your own beach- what more can a person ask for!

    This guy is a jew from Montreal, Canada.
    This fitness fraud is same that went on in North America decades ago by the same people.
    Because he can’t perpetuate the crime in Canada, he went over to Asia.

    I was thinking the same thing. The only way I can see someone wanting this “house” is if they have extended guests staying weeks/months at a time. I know with Biltmore House and the Hearst Castle they had guests like that, but these days I don’t see it. Not that I am uber wealthy like the people who run in these circles with each other.

    well if their selling it obviously it isnt that much of a dream after all, I do always wonder why these big houses are built, briefly lived in and then sold, seems like a waste, if your going to make a commitment like this, it seems like it would be for life, who knows

    I agree 100%. If I build a palatial mansion like that, I expect to occupy it for at least months at a time, if not full time.
