Location description from owner
The Surat Thani Province region
This paradise island is located on the East coast, almost in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand. It’s an small island, little more than 21 km2 and can only be reached by boat from Chumphon or Surat Thani on the mainland.They are many beautiful beaches and bays around Koh Tao, both large and small. To the most of the beaches you can go by motorbike or on foot but some of them can only be reached by long-tail boat.Koh Tao means “Turtle Island”. Despite the name, it’s not many turtles left, unfortunately. But they can appear sometime every now or then. But Koh Tao is blessed with clear water and beautiful reefs, and there is about 25 dive-sites around the island. As Koh Tao is an tiny island there are no airport here, you can only go to Koh Tao by boat. A little messy perhaps some people think. But this is not a bad thing, the good things that come with this is that the island has no mass tourism and charter tourism as many other places in Thailand. Sure, the tourism has left its mark, for the better and the worse, but both Thais and foreigners are more aware and want to preserve this wonderful island.Be aware & care!
Although Koh Tao is a quite small island, there’s plenty to do. There is always something for everyone. Here is a selection:* Scuba Diving and SnorkelingScuba diving and the snorkeling is among the better in Thailand and the cheapest. Thousands come to Koh Tao every year to learn how to dive, so it’s no wonder that there are about 50 diveshops around the island. They offer courses from Open water to Instructor and they have merged so that all have the same fee. If you don’t want to dive, dive centers offer snorkeling tours around the island for a few hundred baht.* Massage & SpaThai massage can be find almost everywhere. All with varying prices, but the most common is the 1-hour Thai massage costs about 300 baht, Oil massage about 400 bath and Aloe Vera massage about 500 baht. Our favorite place is just 5 min walk down the hill from our house in Mae Haad, Kinaree Massage. One of the best Spas on Koh Tao is Jamahkiri Resort & Spa. Well worth a visit!* Thai-boxingTry an incredible funny, tough and good form of exercise on you vacation. There are 2 training centers for Thai-boxing on the island.* Gym and FitnessIf you don't want to relax on the beaches or go diving all the time then stop by at Koh Tao's great gym in Sairee Village.* Bowling & Mini golfAre you tired of sunbathing you can enjoy a round of bowling or mini golf. Both fun and social. And it is just a 5 minute walk from the house.* Cooking classesLearn the secret of cooking good Thai-food, our hostess On and many restaurants offers courses and you can also eat the food that you cooked.* YogaShambhala Yoga Centre at Sairee Beach offers a variety of Hatha yoga styles, Pranayam and meditation led by international qualified experienced teacher.* Climbing, Trekking, Mountain Biking, Kayaking, Zip-lineOn Koh Tao are several operators of other more challenging outdoor activities. GoodTime Adventues has a wide selections to keep your days occupied if you want to do other than dive, swim or sunbathe.* Free DivingDo you not want to scuba dive, there’s another options to explore the world beneath the surface.

“Grate place with a stunning view”
Mid of March we (2 families with 3 kids) visited the villa of Linda and we spent there 5 days. The villa is really beautiful and equipped with everything you need - even snorkeling sets are there! Additional highlight is the view from the upper balcony which is just stunning! The service from the team was perfect. Upon our arrival Ellu picked us from the pier and brought to the villa. Also during the entire stay she was very helpful and had some good tips – especially in respect to the best thai restaurant on the island – Tukta! Thank you for that. During our stay we used very often the service of Mr. Kitty (taxi driver). I do not know all the taxi drivers on the island, but I’m confident he is the BEST one ☺ He drives very carefully and provides great service for a fair price. We definitely can recommend him! Our kids really enjoyed driving in the back of his pickup ☺ As the villa is located on one of the Koh Tao hills I will not recommend it for families with small children. For us it took about 20 minutes to go to the closes beach but especially the way back was bit exhausting. As Linda informed us about this already upfront it was our fault ☺ Inside the villa there is more then enough place for kids to play and do things… pity that the pool was not yet there ☺ Altogether we spent great holiday in the villa and we really enjoyed our stay there! Thank you!
Thank you so much for your kind review and we are greatful that you enjoyed your stay! Kitti and Ms Ellu are the best! And for the swimming pool, hopefully it will be there in the end of this year. So we wish you back next year! Thanks again and best wishes, Linda & Tomas and Ellu!
“Incredible view from a lovely house”
I stayed with 3 friends for a few nights in August 2014 at Frangipani villa. Koh Tao is terrific, even if you aren't a diver. Their house manager met us at the pier and she was simply lovely during our stay and helped us tremendously. (she even had me over for a glass of wine one night; she's so sweet!) Best things about the house: Incredible view, AC and fans everywhere, really neat design, spacious areas to hang out, clean. Challenges about the house: The hike up to this house is no joke. The four of us are adults who are in excellent shape, and we struggled. If you rent this house, plan on leaving for the whole day and then coming back at night, because you aren't going to want to make the climb multiple times in a day. I would not recommend this house for people with very young children or people who aren't in shape. We also had a bit of trouble with the water, but the house manager was on top of that and had it fixed quickly both times when we had issues.
“Unique house with amazing views and very peaceful.”
Had a great stay at Frangipani Villa. The only draw back is the hill to get up and down from the villa. But the views and solidarity are well worth the walk. The hospitality crew where nice and responsive. Also picked us up and dropped us off from the pier and took us to get some groceries when we arrived.
Thank you so much! We really appreciate that you taking your time to review your stay. Welcome back to Frangipani Villa and to Koh Tao! Take care and thanks again! Best regards, Tomas & Linda
“Best view on the Island?”
We stayed at this house for one week. They view from this house is amazing. The owners are great to deal with and I recommend this to everybody that do not have any problem with walking in stairs. That's the only downpoint of having this amazing view. If you are going to Koh Tao and want to rent a house, this is the one you want to rent.
