About this location
The Surat Thani Province region
Koh Samui is Thailand's jewel in the Gulf of Thailand. With beautiful beaches, often with palm trees in the beach giving shade, and excellent views of other islands, the island is regarded as a premier resort. It lies close to the Angthong Marine Park, where trips can be arranged, and close to the island of Koh Phangan, the original setting of the novel The Beach. The central hills provide superb views over the coast and the marine park, and there are lots to see on this small island. The dining facilities are second to none, ranging from chic and expensive, to cheap tasty, locally cooked Thai food. A great choice for an exciting but relaxing holiday, unspoilt by the tawdriness of other major Thai resorts.

The villa is situated approx. 2.3 km's away from the village of Maenam on the North Coast of Koh Samui, only 20 - 30 minutes from the boutique airport, in our VIP Minibus, with flights from Bangkok International Airport available every hour with Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways.
For visitors from Hong Kong and Singapore, direct flights into Koh Samui are available from Bangkok Airways.
Maenam village runs along a 4 km stretch of the ring road with a pleasant cosmopolitan feel to it as many expatriates have settled in this area and opened up cafes and restaurants, indeed the local Italian, CafÃ© e Cucina, is one of the best on the island.
Shopping, Taxis and Services
From the ring road, there is access to regular taxi services, internet cafes, Hair and beauty salons, Thai massage and reflexology boutiques, opticians, a 24 hour 7 - 11 food store, tailors, traditional Thai market, banks with ATM cash machines and foreign exchanges, medical centre, Thai and western restaurants with takeaway options, a great beach and numerous relaxing beach front bars and cafes.
(2.3 km's away from the villa - 5 minutes by car/scooter or a 15 - 20 minute walk)
Maenam Beach, which is just behind the main shops in the village and a mere 5 minute walk from the does not have the mass influx of tourists each day hence it is popular with couples and families seeking something a little more relaxed.
Dining and Spa Treatments in Maenam and the surrounding area
For your fine dining you can choose from a wide range of high end resorts for alfresco venues such as Zazen Boutique Resort or Ocean 11, two of the islands finest restaurants, or alternatively you can enjoy the Samui of old with its more traditional and simple Thai resorts and beach restaurants offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.
For Spa treatments, there is an abundance of options, from the simple beach massage and pedicure services to the very finest in self indulgence, you can also have a private massage treatment in the privacy of your own villa, conducted by a fully qualified masseuse, just make a request a day or 2 before.
The main centre of Chaweng with its large supermarkets is around 20 minutes by car.
Golfing at its best
Located less than 10 minutes drive away from the villa is the renowned and challenging 18 hole Santi Buri Championship Golf Course and Country Club enjoying spectacular sea views of the island from its unique viewpoint.
Access to the neighboring islands
A number of piers are situated in this area running regular services to Koh Phangnan and Koh Tao. Water sports on this beach are popular thanks to the windy shore, why not try your hand at kite-surfing or windsurfing? The kite-surfing school operates from this beach.
Weather & Climate
Thailand is fast becoming a country to be visited all year round.
Koh Samui benefits from a good weather season of about 10 months of the year.
The 'dry' season is generally from January till May and July through to September. Temperatures regularly reach 30 to 35 degrees till May and then 35 to 40 degrees till September with odd showers from July to September.
The 'wet' season is generally from mid October to mid December when temperatures are around the 25 to 30 degree mark.
November is often regarded as the 'monsoon" season, though the heavy rains that come at this time are generally only for a few hours at a time, with many days in between blessed with sunny spells.
Tropical rain showers may occur late December and early January.
As with all weather predictions in this ever changing world of climate irregularity, you can never be absolutely sure and the weather can catch us out but we hope this gives you a helpful guide nonetheless.
(Please note, the weather predictions for Koh Samui are very different to those of Phuket and Krabi, which experience different seasons due to their location in the country). Do make specific enquires with your travel agent and ensure you are getting the right information, especially if you intend to partake in activities such as scuba diving, sailing, general water sports and golfing.

Meine Frau und ich und 3 Kinder verbrachten wunderschöne Tage in der Villa Baan Rim Bueng von Stuart dem Eigentümer. Stuart und seine Frau sind außergewöhnlich hilfsbereit und immer mit einem guten Rat zur Seite. Ob gute Lokale ( Well done in der kleinen Verbindungsstraße der Ringstraße zum Strand oder Strandrestaurant Cafe Talay. ( Nur kein T-Bone Steak bestellen!).
Die Villa mit dem riesigen und wünderschönen Gartengrundstück verfügt über einen sehr großen Pool mit verschiedenen Ebenen und abgetrennten Kleinkinderbereich. Die Ausstattung lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig. LCD TV, 2 Kühlschränke, nagelneue Spülmaschine, Klimaanlage usw. Alles Top in Ordnung. 2 Km entfernt von Mae Nam liegt die Anlage mit mehreren Villen, in die Berge gebettet. Man benötigt ein Mietauto um mobil zu sein. Am Ort gibt es kleinere Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und in Chaweng oder Nathon größere Supermärkte. Donnerstatgs ist Abends Markt in Mae Nam und die kleine Verbindungsstraße ist gesperrt. Freitags ist der Markt in Fischerman´s VillageWir überlegen uns schon nächstes Jahr wieder zu kommen. Es war wunderschön.
Vielen Dank noch einmal an Stuart und seine Frau.
Your`e simply the Best !
Thanks very much for your great review, it was so nice to meet you all and glad you enjoyed the Walking Street market, last night was not so good, rained all night but still the atmosphere was fun,
Hope to see you again, best wishes to you all,

My wife and I had a really excellent stay in Baan Rim Bueng with our daughter and her 2 young children. The villa was perfect - the children loved the pool which is on the veranda : the living space is large, well equipped and well maintained : the 3 bedrooms are also large with plenty of storage space. So well furnished it really did feel like a home from home. And as for Stuart there really was nothing he wouldn't sort out - from car hire to arranging transfers and getting in pizzas for our first night. The location is idyllic - water buffalo in the field next door - which does mean a car is pretty much essential to drive into town for provisions and visit the many local restaurants. For us that was no problem anyway as we explored the island.and took the children to the farm park, the water park, and of course various beaches. We will be back.
Many thanks Colin, it was great to meet you and hope to see you again another time, Best wishes, Stuart

"Luxury and service at great prices. we will be back"
The villa was amazing with everything you need and more. The kitchen is fitted with everything you will possible need. The bedrooms and living rooms are huge and they have full cable tv on a flatscreen. The pool is huge and we spent most mornings and late afternoons swimming around. The villa has a very large grass area for the kids to run around as well as a pond. The house is full of books and dvds which you can use.
The villa is around 2km from the beach so a scooter or car is necessary. I shopped around a lot for a villa and found this villa to be the best value for luxury you can find even after you add the car hire costs. The villa is in a quite gated area.
The service from Stuart the property manager for samran gardens and owner of bin rim reung was sensational. The recommendations for food and activities were all spot on. Any issues or questions were handled professionally and promptly. The service was so good I would not hesitate to rent any of the samran gardens villas. Stuart is even going to the extent of mailing some of toys sold at the local night market to my kids.
We will definitely be back.
Pleasure to meet you and we are delighted the villa provided for all your needs, come back whenever you like,
All the best,
Stuart & Aa Evans

"Stunning accomodation set in a beautiful peaceful location."
We couldn't beleive how lucky we were when we arrived at the villa Rim Bueng in Samran Gardens. The house was totally amazing, and standards were first class. It was like walking onto a glossy brochure for real, the photos were spot on. The setting was so tranquil, amazing range of tropical birds in the morning and a gentle breeze through the palm trees in the gardens. We fell in love with the place instantly. Stuart & Aa were lovely and it was just nice to have a British owner/Manager who had extremely high standards.
I love to work out and It even had a fully equipped Multi Gym and Sauna :)
We will definatly be visiting again, it was perfect. :)
It was a pleasure to meet you and we are so pleased you enjoyed the villa and the island, our staff have been informed of your kind comments and they are most grateful,

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights, on our way back from our 3 week honeymoon in Australia.
Working as a rental agent in the U.K, I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail by the local managing agents to make this feel like home from home. The set up on arrival was A1, very clean, and the photos on all counts depicted the real thing perfectly, if anything the villa was even better than the photos suggested. Superb and unique swimming pool, which has a kids section too, lovely gardens with a lake view. Very tranquil! It was a real pleasure to stay, albeit too briefly, as this does not feel like a typical rental unit. It is primarily a family home with lots of lovely personal touches, family photos, extensive library and a lot of DVD's, all for our use. The kitchen too is very well equipped if you like to cook, although I have to admit, we ate out every evening! There are many local eateries and we found them all really nice and great value for money but I can particularly recommend Salathai in Chaweng main street and a beach front restaurant in Fisherman's Village, Bo Phut but I can't remember the name (just past Starfish & Coffee).
I would certainly return again, for longer next time and would highly recommend this accommodation to friends and family. Just a note, you do need a car or scooter (everyone uses them) if you wish to explore as it is not on the main road. Car hire was all arranged for us by the owner though at the time of booking and very inexpensive. The car was a real bonus and although the nearest beach was only a few minutes drive away it enabled us to explore the entire island visiting other beaches, elephant safari, the monks at Big Buddha and Nikki Beach resort.
One final tip - Maenam Walking Street on a Thursday evening is a must. Make sure you encompass a Thursday evening (or two!) within your stay so that you can enjoy this very interesting Thai experience.
Thank you to you both for your kind comments, it certainly helps other potential guests in the final decision making process, we are so pleased you enjoyed the house so much, hope to see you again another time for a longer trip if you can

We stayed 2 weeks here over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The house is beautifully maintained with a lovely pool and garden. It is also particularly secluded in the Samran complex making it quite special.
We were 7; 4 Adults (incl. 2 grandparents) and 3 children. The house was perfect for our needs.
The Samran complex is well maitained with a good gymn literally a few yards from the house. Stuart, his wife and Ray were very helpful and helped make our holiday quite special.
Samran Gardens is located quite close to the airport (about 20 mins) yet is nicely secluded. I can highly recommend the Thai restaurant where the road meets the nearby town - great takeaways....no need to cook at all (altough the house does have a well equipped kitchen).
I highly recommend Samran and in particular this house.
