Your holiday of a lifetime starts here! A luxurious new family villa set in a stunning garden of tropical plants with both sun and shaded decks around a private freshwater pool. A deserted beach with white sand and gentle shore is 30m away and a shared pool just through the palm trees. The house is contemporary luxury at its best with top spec kitchen and bathrooms, high quality beds and bedding and enough gadgets to keep you busy (ipod docks, international cable TV, broadband wifti etc)
This is a paradise holiday location, perfect for total relaxation on the beach or by the pool. The beach isn't shared with any other resort, just the 10 or so villas in the development and it's often deserted except for the swaying coconut trees along the edge. Just 5 minutes walk along the beach brings you to a local restaurant where you can eat hot-sour-sweet Thai food (or Western food) with your feet in the sand while you watch fishermen land your next meal. There is also a very good local restaurant just opposite the villa, across the road. We provide kayaks for anyone who wants to explore the sea and there is a reef 100m from the shore for snorkeling.
Of course, Koh Samui has more to offer than blue skies, white sand and warm sea ... you can play golf, go scuba diving, fishing or elephant trekking, visit fantastic spas and Buddhas, hire a boat to visit the islands nearby and find your own deserted beach, take a Thai cookery lesson or party up a storm in Chaweng.
Whether you want to feel relaxed or revitalized (or both!), Koh Samui is the perfect holiday destination.

|Further details indoors|
Our holiday home is airy and light and built to a very high standard. The kitchen includes granite work surfaces and Smeg appliances. The living area has a flatscreen LED TV on which you can watch international cable TV or a movie from our library while lounging on our L-shaped sofa.
We have taken the utmost care to provide comfortable beds with pillow mattress toppers and high thread count linen - after all, holidays are for catching up on sleep. Our four poster bed has a sea view and two of the bedrooms have wall-mounted TVs. The second bedroom has a kingsize bed and the third has twin beds (these can be pushed together to form a third double bed). All our bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with Grohe fittings and showers, including a Balinese rain shower where you have the impression of showering outside while being protected from the elements (and any prying eyes!)
All rooms have ceiling fans, air conditioning and black out curtains to help you get over jet lag or simply lie in. We can also cater for young children with travel cots, baby monitor, baby bath, high chair, sand toys etc - just ask!

We have a freshwater pool that is kept sparkling clean without chemicals or chlorine. It includes a lounging step, perfect for cooling off without too much effort! Around the pool is a terrace with sun loungers and a shady spot with ceiling fans for dining away from the sun's heat. Just 15 m away, there is a bigger pool that is shared by 8 other villas, but it's very quiet as most villas have their own private pools.
Each bedroom has its own private terrace, one of which has stunning sea views and is ideally situated to take advantage of the sea breezes. Our garden is grassed and big enough to kick a football with the kids, or watch the tropical butterflies visiting the hibiscus and jasmine flowers.
Welcome pack provided on arrival, included in price.
English-speaking staff available on site during the day.
Daily cleaning, plus twice a week linens/towels change, included in price
Babysitting, masseuse, breakfast delivery and chef can be provided.

Koh Samui was the backpackers' secret of the 1970s. They managed to keep it quiet for a couple of decades .... but now the white sands, warm seas and totally laid-back lifestyle has come to the attention of holiday makers the world over.
Samui is still the paradise discovered 40 years ago, it has retained its stunning natural beauty and is still fantastically laid back, but it's able, thanks to its airport and an emerging tourist industry, to welcome visitors and give them the luxury holidays they are looking for. The climate can get hot (up to 34C) and there are officially 2 rainy seasons (May and October / November) although it's equally possible to have 2 weeks of warm sun in these months.
There are many activities on Koh Samui: diving, golf, fishing, spas, elephant trekking, Buddhas to visit etc. The new activity seems to be "walking streets" or night markets in Bophut and Nathon - they start around 6pm and sell everything from insect snacks to fake Gucci ... very popular with tourists and locals alike and worth a visit!
Bang Po beach is on the north west of Samui. There are no resorts or nightclubs so it's perfect for a relaxing getaway.
Our beach isn't shared but you can wander 5 minutes across the sand to a local restaurant that serves excellent Thai specialities as well as western food for the less adventurous.
