Recently completed in May 2013, it sits in a quiet cul-de-sac of 7 houses at the top of a beautiful winding private jungle road, it is only 5-10 mins drive from the centre of Chaweng (the main town with all the attractions) and 2 mins (1.6 km) to the main road, from which the nearest beach (Chaweng) can be accessed (via Fair House Hotel) - the longest and most popular beach.

Care When Staying :- I live close by so can take care of your needs. We help introduce you to the island's amenities to accelerate the start of your holiday eg. advising restaurants, beaches, taxis, things to do etc including Full Moon Parties, tours around island, boat hire, spa etc.
Ready to go :- We try to provide most things for you in the villa so when you step onto the island you are ready to relax. This includes, linen / towels (changed weekly), soaps/shampoos, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, crockery, cleaning materials, pool and house cleaning (weekly), and transport such as airport collections, a free scooter and phone. Car Hire (approx. 900 Baht per day) and others services can be arranged in advance too.
Location :- Because the house in in the hills, its best (but not essential) to use your own transport - scooters ideally or a car. The house is 1.6km from the main road, 15 mins drive from the airport and Bangrak, 30 mins from Lipa Noi and 45 mins from Nathon (Seatran mainland ferries). It is barely 5-10 minutes ride from the main bars/nightclubs in Chaweng but peacefully positioned on the outskirts of town a little in the jungle. Transport (car/bike/taxi) is recommended but not essential to get up the not too steep hill to the house from the main ring road. Nearest beach is just at the bottom of the road (approx. 2km).
*Terms of the scooter:-
Scooter : i will supply a Honda Click Scooter 125cc free of charge. Extra bikes can be arranged 250b per day. Riders must be competent (i may ask you to show me) and hold minimum a car driver's license. Customers are responsible for scooter damage caused and will be billed accordingly. A deposit may be required such as a drivers license or your passport. If you are a novice or have limited experience but still want to try i can give you lessons. Don't be over confident - just ask. Don't feel you have to take a scooter or car. Its just as easy to use public transport, taxis, walk etc because it is all at the bottom of the road.
Airport / Port pickup : mostly made by my usual taxi driver Bung, who knows the villa well. He will greet you and take you to the house direct where we will be waiting to greet you and do check-in. If arriving by boat at Nathon (Seatran) or Lipa Noi (Raja) its sometimes easier if you get your own taxi to Fair House Hotel, Chaweng and i can meet you from there. I will pay 500b towards this.
Phone : I supply a local mobile so you can contact me - it is a local number. It is also useful to order taxis, food etc. Extra credit can bought from any 7-Eleven / Family Mart convenience store.
The 3rd bed (ie. for the 5th person) is a comfortable fold-up single bed and needs to be arranged prior. It goes in the rear bedroom (which already has a queen-sized double). A 6th person staying in the villa is charged at 500b per day.
We live nearby so we will look after you during your stay and try to make it your best holiday ever.

Situated on the Gulf of Thailand ( South East Thailand), Koh Samui offers a fantastic blend of different types of holiday for all ages, something for everybody.
The island is typically mountainous jungle and coconut trees on the inside surrounded by beautiful white sandy beaches on the outside. It is Thailand's epicentre of spa's, massage and health oriented treatments but coupled with this it offers a range of food from international standard cuisine in many of its beautiful hotels and beach side restaurants to its street food and local thai restaurants where the average meal costs just 50 bhat (approx. £1).
Koh Samui is the 3rd largest island in Thailand taking about 1 hour to drive around but as well as being a holiday destination is also a real working island full of original Thai locals too, so as well as having dramatic a landscape, it offers a cultural experience too.
The house is situated in a quiet spot in the hills but just a few minutes from the main town Chweng which offers shopping, restaurants , bars and nightlife such as the famous Soi Green Mango. Many young people like to use the Island as a base to go by speedboat to the famous "Full Moon Parties" at Koh Phanang too. (just 800 bhat return journey)
For the adventurous there are mountains, diving, waterfalls, elephant riding, bike riding, crocodile zoos etc. amongst many activities to explore.
For those looking for tranquility there are many empty beaches to explore especially the far side of the island (Bang Por). Thai people don't go to the beach because they prefer to stay out of the sun so most beaches are very quiet.
For those looking for treatment, remedies, spa's , massage , therapies etc. there is perhaps more choice than anywhere in the world.
And for fine dining there is an increasing array of beautiful restaurants to go.
The weather is the best thing about Samui...always warm day and night but never too hot. It is always around 28-32C day and 25C at night. It does not rain alot but when it does you know about it! The rainy season is typically mid October to mid December and hottest temperatures around March/April but there isn't too much fluctuation year round. Always t-shirt and shorts weather, even in the rain at night!
