Add some sunshine to your winter by jetting off to one of these much loved winter sun destinations. Choose from an active water sports holiday, an exotic tour of a far off place or just kicking back and relaxing while topping up on some much needed vitamin D.
High on the winter sun hit list are diving at some of the world’s top dive sites in Egypt or Thailand, or soaking up the sights in Mexico, Argentina or Brazil. Go on safari in Tanzania or South Africa, or just chill in a Caribbean paradise in St Lucia or Barbados. If you don’t mind a long haul flight, join the thousands exploring the beaches, vistas and warm welcomes of Australia and New Zealand.
For something a little closer to home, the Canary Islands are bathed in sunshine all year round, making your winter sun break just a short flight away.

Thank you for the review and for the compliments. Regarding the cleaning, many of our guests do not want a housekeeper everyday as they like thier privacy and that is why we do housekeeping every 3 days. We are sorry about the island power outage and have since purchased a portable generator so there will be electricity in the case of a blackout. Regarding the rate, we feel we are quite competitive. Please do a search of 4 bedroom pool villas on Koh Samui and you will see that most of them are more expensive than our starting daily rate of 6,900THB. Thank you and for your input and we look forward to hosting you again in Koh Samui.
