Getting around

Car hire is not necessary in Samui, but some guests prefer to do so. The local transit (red pickup truck with two benches in the back, covered, called "songtao") is very convenient. Ring Road is the main road which goes around the island. Simply flag down the songtao, arrange a price with the driver (50-100 baht, depending on far you are going), and get on. Ring the bell on the roof when it's time to get off! Simple and fun! Many guests hire motorbikes (scooters, really) to get around. The business next door to our villa, Koi) can provide anything you need: scooters, car hire, taxi, massage, esthetics). If you are going out for dinner, it's best to hire a taxi. All the businesses around the villa offer taxi service.

Interaction with guest

Once you have paid for your stay in full, your particulars (phone number and email) are made available to me. I forward that information to our wonderful manager in Samui, Sue Williams, and she will immediately contact you to arrange complementary airport pickup or dock pickup and anything else you may need. You will be picked up at the airport and delivered to the villa where you will be given keys and a tour of the villa and answer any further questions you may have. I am the owner and live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I am in constant contact with Sue. She is fabulous! She will take great care of you and your needs. Warm regards, Diana Carr

Very Good

“Fabulous close to the beach getaway”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2017

The villa is gorgeous - the photos are accurate (and then some!). All the amenities you would want in a self catered accommodation, even really excellent wifi. There is plenty of space for a family of four or for two couples / two small families (i.e. two couples with babies or small children who could share the bed with them) - the bedrooms are spread out enough you get your own space. Nice space for eating and several areas to "hang out". There are great massage places just a couple of doors down, a local grocer, and a 7-11 as well as nice local restaurants in that same vicinity. A short walk (400 metres) away is the beach. There are great restaurants there, too and of course the sand! Renting a car is easy, very reasonably priced, and convenient. We appreciated being able to drive into "town" to get more groceries than was available at the small shops on the street by the villa and liked a change of scenery every now and then, though. Having said that, you certainly could get away with not renting a car or scooter as everything you need for the perfect getaway is in the villa or walking distance from there. We hope to come back here soon!

Owner's reply: Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments. Sue says you were an awesome guest! Please do come back soon. Warm regards, Diana Carr

Malgré le temps pas très clément, cette villa est un véritable havre de paix dans un village vraiment accueillant! Conçue comme un cocon de bien-être, cette maison est absolument superbe, avec un personnel aux petits soins, qui nous portent vraiment toutes les attentions! Des vacances inoubliables!!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments on our villa in Koh Samui, and I apologize for taking so long to respond to you. It means so much to us to have our guests enjoy their stay. My husband Keith and I are pleased that you were treated well by our staff and that you enjoyed the peace and serenity of our villa. We hope you will come back. Regards, Diana

This villa is gorgeous, exactly as the advert describes it...... Lovely beach just two minutes walk down a quite road, restuarants and bars nearby are great too and excellent value for money - especially the mai tai where we ate most nights! Would recommend this to anyone and we will certainly try to go back there!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your wonderful words! We are so pleased that the villa met with your expectations and that you loved Bantai village. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! Jacquie (Villa Manager)

“Think of your best dream, now double it and you get Baan Tai Tara1”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2012

We have rented properties to customers for over twenty years ourselves. We like to think we give a great service!! Nobody likes coming second but sorry to say we do!! This property and services offered, is far better than we could ever of expected and what we ourselves attain!! Superb is an understatement, cleaners, pool services, gardeners all on time all perfect. The area is the best we have stayed at without question on Koh Samui. While sleepy everything is there WITHIN 100 metres, car rental, taxi, bars, all run by the nicest people you could find. We could go on and on by for ease like we said think of your best dream and double it. Nothing and we do mean NOTHING beats it!! Victor, a real gem and best of luck with everything you both do!!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind words. We do try and ensure everyone's stay is a memorable one. Thank you for being such kind and graceful guests. We look forward to welcoming you back to Koh Samui. Best wishes, Victor and Chai
