What a great find Samui Manor House was. We stayed there for 12 months from September 2012. The location in Bang Por is ideal for exploring the island, relaxing by the pool or taking in a sunset on the beach across the road. The apartment is beautiful and has all you could need as very clean with all mod cons such as free wifi, flat screen tv, true visions cable and plenty of space and spare rooms.
Would well recommend for a short term or long term stay. …
Voted: TripAdvisor Top Villa Rental on Samui
Breathtaking villa, stunning views
Myself, my friends and family have just returned (unfortunately) back from a superb holiday at Baan Villa Maphraaw. I don’t unusually leave reviews but felt this deserved one. We booked the villa on the back of all of the other reviews on a late booking, having come from Phuket. The interior design is awesome and well thought out (with natural colours throughout). A few of my highlights: 1 external speakers around the pool area; 2 the speed of the Wi-Fi (cannot go 5 minutes away from FB!!). They even had a I-Pod docking station which came in handy; 3 the staff were pleasant and helpful and the guest manager very informative. We chose to have the private chef on a couple nights and highly recommend this to anyone who stays.
We took advantage of the discounted car available which gave us the flexibility to explore the island, which was a bonus as we loved visiting all the different beaches, villages and towns. Lamai is lovely at night and Maenam night market on a Thursday is packed….
I highly recommend the local beach restaurants which are populated not far from the villa itself in Ban Tai. They offer superb traditional Thai food (I love spicy myself) without being overcrowded with tourists. It was nice to eat where the locals eat f you know what I mean.

At the Beach, a Blissful Sea-View House + Kitchen
Lovely beach... quiet, relax, clean house
The house comes with a kitchen, big tv, comfortable bed and is right next to the beach. We liked to sit on the bed at look at the sea. Restaurants and small shops are closeby. Our host was good. We are sad we did not stay longer. …

A perfect stay in a perfect place
We stayed in this wonderful villa for more than 3 weeks and we had a marvelous holiday! Its location is unbeaten, the beach is nice and not crowded, so convenient to stay with small kids. Everything is perfectly made for the family vacation, our kids and parents enjoyed the villa, the pool and nice restaurant we had many of our lunches and dinners there. Its a pricey villa, but its so superb just right on the beach with a huge pool and so spacious, and it has everything you need and in working condition. Its our 4th time in Samui and we have other villas to compare with. The way this villa is built and designed was made for living, the quality of materials used, its condition now is very good. There are minor issues, like internet is not good, it was working so far all the time, just too slow. We compared the speed with the internet of the villa next door, I think same provider but 3 times faster! We didn't have any issues with water, just a small tip: don't use dishwasher and washing machine at the same time, there is problem with the outside pipes which is none of the villa issues, just local area pipes are not well suited for such a strong flow as from dishwasher/washing machine. Anyway I think fewer guests are using these things on a holiday. We did a lot of cooking and washing because of smaller kids, and I can say it has everything you may need, all utensils and spices etc. Only the fridge was too small for our family :) The owners are nice people, we had a lovely chat with Michael's wife and it was pleasure to know they lived in Hong Kong before for so many years. Simon (the manager of the villa) is a great and helpful guy, he did his best with booking taxis, solving minor things. We would consider our next holiday stay in this villa definitely! …
