The Koh Samui region

When you fly over Koh Samui upon arrival you will see that it takes its place in a ribbon of islands including Koh Phangan ( home to the famous Full Moon parties!), the Anthong National Park and Koh Tao. Guests can enjoy a fabulous day trip to any of these islands for snorkeling, diving, kayaking, sightseeing and eating at local restaurants.

The climate is tropical, mostly 30 C, with gentle sea breezes. The rainy season is short and pre Christmas.

Samui itself is a small island where nothing is further that 30 mins away by jeep. You can go elephant trekking, take a jungle adventure or explore the many beautiful beaches around the island. Other popular sights include the Big Buddha, the Muslim fishing village, Grandfather/ Grandmother rocks, waterfalls and the many Watts (temples).

Nearby Nathon, capital of the island, is great for local shopping, markets, restaurants and bars. A visit to the Sunset bar, followed by sampling the food stalls at the ferry piers is a must. Chaweng is the most developed tourist beach on the island, a hotspot for night life, with shops, bars and restaurants of every description and price range. Closer to home we recommend Bophut Fisherman's village and Maenam for ATMS, shops, restaurants and bars.

For self caterers there is even a huge Tesco/Lotus near Chaweng with a multiplex cinema and Bowling Ally.

10 mins down the road is a truly world class 18 hole, 6000m golf course with a fabulous club house and views to die for. The restaurant is open to all.

Bang Po Beach

Coconut River is a unique development. It is well named with soaring coconut palms giving some shade to the beautiful tropical garden which lies beneath the palms and embraces the eight houses of Coconut River and its sparkling swimming pool. The pool incorporates a Jacuzzi and a shallower section for those less confident in the water. Our guests love the pool, garden and sea views and often refer to it as a hidden treasure. Beautiful in sunlight, drenched by tropical rain or illuminated by house lights in the evening, Coconut River is a tranquil delight.

Bang Por beach, always visible from Bahn Nam Soey, is 3.5 Km long and remains essentially an unspoilt local beach. As you stroll along it or sunbathe you will be able to watch fishermen work the edge of the reef or see them catch squid at night with their lamps and spears. The beautiful Anthong National Park shimmers in the distance and Koh Phangan beckons across the bay. It is a very safe beach and can provide some absorbing snorkelling. You will find many local restaurants within easy walking distance where you can dine at the water's edge at very modest prices.

Don't forget to have a massage on the terrace!

"A paradise away from the tourists of Koh Samui"

I spent a week here in August 2013 and I have to say that it was a most enjoyable stay. The house - it is not a villa- is situated in a complex of about 7 other houses adjacent to Bang Por Beach, whic… More

"Great holiday home, next to the beach"

With our 2 children (3 and 1 yrs) we stayed for a month at this lovely house. Koh Samui offers a lot to do and a car is helpful to get there. We arranged a car at the dutch neighbour.The house is clos… More

Thanks for your review . We appreciate it very much.Since your visit we have been able to buy a lovely Mothercare cot, fit security gates to the downstairs terrace and the pool has a completely resurfaced surround. The top layer around the edge of the pool has also been completely replaced.We are currently in the house. We visit each year for two or three months to check that everything is ok. We can confirm that the garden is just as lovely as ever ! The tides are high during these months and we are enjoying swimming in the pool and the sea!

"Quite a cosy holiday"

We enjoyed Bahn Nam Soey very much - stayed there with two families. Very close to sea, calm, peaceful, kids really enjoyed the pool. On the minus side - to get to whichever town on the island, You need to use local transport (song thaew or cab), which in the evenings become much more expencive and You need to bargain hard. But all in all a perfect spot for a relaxing family holiday.

"A wonderful relaxing fun holiday."

A lovely property in an idyllic setting almost on the stunning beach. Beautifully maintained. Although away from the main action of the island it is within easy walking distance of many excellent restaurants and a few shops. No need to hire a car as buses and taxis are frequent and inexpensive - just remember to agree a price before you get in! Could not think of a better way to spend the evening than walking along a beautiful beach at sunset and eating a wonderful fresh seafood meal right on the beach for amazing prices! Follow this with a coffee or a drink at The Monkey Bar on the way back and the evening is complete! (However if you are a wine lover you may be disappointed as it is extremely expensive and little choice). Loads of trips available on the island, but recommend you go to a tourist office to book as phoning can be tricky and expensive - especially if the organisers speak little English. Our teenagers had plenty to do- quad biking, zip wiring, kayaking, snorkeling, boat trips and we all loved swimming with the fish and feeding them by hand!. Highly recommend taking a longtail boat off the south of the island (Mr Mhoo) which is much more authentic and relaxing than the mad scramble of tourists visiting the marine park on the big speed boats in the north! Bophut Fishing Village is nearby and great fun, especially on a Friday night when it is closed to traffic. Avoid the aquarium and the monkey theatre - both overpriced and very poor - especially if you don't like seeing animals in cages! All in all a great holiday in a lovely place with really friendly people. All the family scored it 10/10.

"Paradise found!"

This was an amazing find on the Internet - having looked for somewhere close to the beach and within a very quiet setting Bahn Nam Soey met our every requirement. From the beginning, the owners were very helpful and honest in their descriptions of the house, facilities and surroundings. The setting is truly lovely, and the house very well equipped - a real home from home. We enjoyed the outdoor living on the verandah and the upstairs balcony, pool and beach. We took advantage of the Thai massages, and delivery of local foods - including the German breakfasts! Would highly recommend Angela's for fresh breads, pastries and amazing home cooked food including pies and sausage rolls!
The house is superbly placed just a few yards from an almost deserted beach - the sea warm even at 7am! The pool is really well kept and coolin, with plenty of chairs and loungers - although in our time there we only shared the pool twice with another family. It was like having a private pool.
It was a wonderful holiday - and enjoyed so much that we would like to buy one of the other properties!

"Relaxing enjoyable stay"

Sitting in the airport after having a lovely stay at the villa, from the moment we arrived and met Lek and Ian who made us feel so welcome even though we had arrived early. The villa was spotlessly clean and very spacious for me and my husband and 2 teenage daughters, the grounds staff were very friendly and were constantly cleaning up fallen leaves and watering plants. Whislt at the villa we made good use of the swimming pool and jacuzzi a good quiet place to chill out on a hot afternoon. Although the sea was a bit rocky it was still nice to have a walk along the quiet beach and enjoy the beautifull scenery. Local Thai restaurants were very friendly especially the Thai lady across the road who also had free WiFi available and we would highly recommend going there to sample her delicious food, there are also a few more about 5 min walking distance if you turn right when leaving coconut river, also very good food with reasonable prices. Really enjoyed our stay here and will be recommending it to friends. Look forward to many more holidays at the villa. Thank you Brian and Gill x
