“A very nice appartment to stay just outside pattaya” Stayed here for two months jan/feb 2013.its a very nice and comfy studio around two kilometers north of pattaya .the appartment has everything you need for a quiet stay with the hub bub of pattaya a 100-200 baht bus ride away.the swimming pool and garden are first class and very rarely too crowded.the studio has a balcony with a partial sea view owing to building work taking place in front of the appartment which did not bother us ,air con and a very handy fan.bathroom fine with plenty of hot water .no washing machine but a very good launderette downstairs t shirt 8baht shorts 15baht also a small shop as well.there is a very nice beach around 3/5 minutes walk which was nice as the the sun was scorching all day long,120 baht for 2 sunbeds and a parasol for the day.reasonable amount of restuarants 5 minutes walk all good value.all the staff at nova mirage are lovely and the manager nicky is a absolute gem with her tips and invaluable advice.if you are looking for a quiet and comfy place to stay with easy access to the bright lights you would be hard pressed to find better for your money,great value.overall we had a great stay.
“Exceeded our expectations” The staff is very friendly to us and the children. Always smiling and creating a good atmosphere. The service is excellent. It is nice that we can decide the menu together with the chef. After a few days we just let the chef decide the meals and it was always good!
The house far exceeded our expectations. It looks good on Pictures, but in real life it is much better! Plenty of room for 10 people. We spent 7 days here and we just wanted to stay longer.
Looking at monkeys in the palm trees behind the house while taking a shower outside is an exotic experience.
I highly recommend this beautiful house.
“Home away from home” Perfect stay, everything you needed was at the villa and manager and owner are very helpful. Staff are brilliant and location was amazing, very quiet and not far from town or shops, local tesco was 10 min walk, the manager arranged anything we needed and the added local phone provided was brilliant to phone taxis or order in food, all in all if in koh samui and in chaweng then definitely book this villa as it is better than staying in hotel, also owner has his own restaurant which I would recommend, nicest in town.
“lovely property.... charming stay..... would revisit!” A lovely property - great architectural aesthetics with features like high vaulted ceilings with timber-clad arched roof .... a beautiful sit-out with antique ship lamps... picturesque.
So unlike the regular touristy stays - this is clearly a home that has been made and put together with a lot of love and care.
Great location in a quaint, authentic North Goa village; couple of houses down the lane is the village bakery with mouth-watering regional breads; a few minutes walk yields a couple of wine shops, quite de rigeur in Goa and another few minutes takes you to the beautiful village church - charmingly located by the edge of a water body and on a slight elevation... don't miss it.
The smiling sari-clad lady caretaker can rustle up a meal from your local shopping - just inform her earlier ...... and great plus...an AC car with driver are available to ferry you around on extra charge and the convenience is appreciated. Eevn pick you up from the airport as we were......
Both caretaker and driver can't speak English, however, though sign language pretty much works for the basics, like all over the world.
Moira Villa has all the modcons you may need - a well-equipped kitchen with much-needed accoutrements - we located a wine bottle opener which was critical as friends dropped in suddenly in the evening! We had bought some fresh prawns and just stir-fried them in olive oil and some garlic - great with red wine. I found the bathrooms charming ( okay, I have a problem if bathrooms are not okay) and they had little closed in gardens with each bathroom...... hmmmm... though I didn't venture into them...:)
Well, we enjoyed our stay tremendously. Slept like babies.... and woke up to birdsong....l!!!
ACID TEST: I would like to go back for a revisit!!!!!!
Moira Villa is located in a quaint North Goa village
“Pete's Apartment B19 at Club Lersuang was great” Pete was very easy to deal with and gave us a great rate. The apartment itself is spectacular - modern and spacious with all the mod cons you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The pool was great, as was the in house restaurant. Other restaurants and the beach were a 5 minute walk across flat land and the Bang Tao beach area with up market restaurants were a only a short tuk tuk ride away, which the kids loved. The booking agents were very welcoming and personable, as were the apartment complex management. We had a great and unexpected stay after cancelling the Bangkok leg of our holiday due to the flood. We were able to book 'lost' 4 days that we would have spent in Bangkok with Pete quickly and without problems. Very happy to recommend the apartment, Pete, CB Ellis Phuket and the apartment management to anyone. Thanks Pete for a great stay. Well do it again.
Spirituality, mystery and ancient civilizations: this vast continent has been a favourite of travellers and adventurers for centuries. From the shiny skyscrapers of Tokyo to the Kalimantan rainforest in Indonesia, this diverse and intriguing land will surprise and amaze in equal measure.
Home to some of the world’s earliest architecture and civilisations of the Bronze Age, Asia’s historical sites will leave you awestruck. In China, visit the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Army. The temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia is mesmerizing and the Prambanan temple in Central Java is out-of-this-world.
Food & Drink
From sushi and soy beans in the east to sumac and shawarma in the west, Asian cuisine is an explosion of flavour and colour. In Pakistan, enjoy a traditional biryani or tuck into sensational street food at a Hawker centre in Singapore. Cool off with a fresh and creamy lassi in India or sample soju - Korea’s favourite tipple, typically made from rice, wheat or barley. With so many villas and apartments in Asia to choose from, the rental choices are just as exciting as the cuisine.
In recent years, sanctuaries and national parks have been springing up all over Asia to ensure the protection of this continent's staggeringly beautiful wildlife. See tigers, hyenas, and wild boar at India’s Ranthambore National park, giant pandas and golden monkeys at Foping Nature Reserve in China and elephants and leopards in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka.

Chaweng - 3 bedroom sea view villa
Fantastic Villa To Stay
Having be lucky enough to have stayed in many villas throughout the world this is one of the best. The facilities and views were everything and more than you can imagine. The owner David was the perfect owner in every aspect. Only sorry I didn't meet him in person to be able to thank him. His staff who run the Villa are a credit to him. You can get taxis easy enough to and from the villa but my advise would be to hire a car. The villa overlooks the main resort but is only minutes away. Easy to get to. We took some advise of other customers on here and had some food prepared for us a the villa. Worth every penny. David provides you with a load of info on places to visit etc. There is a really handy folder full of info in the villa as well. When I visit Koh Samui again I hope the villa is available again as I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Many Many thanks David. Please pass on my gratitude to the rest of your team. …
