Description from owner

Description

Located right on the beach, overlooking the Five Island and idyllically set amongst towering palms and exotic flowering plants, this is as near to Man Friday's Treasure Island as one can imagine.

This authentic Thai-style house was lovingly created by a Swiss businessman, who spared nothing on creating a home of his dreams. Built in teak, the house was designed with amazing attention to detail, along with a multitude of treasures and artifacts that he collected from his travels around Thailand.

The entrance to this house sets the scene for the rest of this outstanding property. The striking entrance gate and long stone driveway lead down to the main house through a lush private garden that is home to a multitude of tropical plants, trees and flowers.

A green lawn fringes the long swimming pool followed by an arched lily pond entrance, which takes you to the main house overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, the Ang Thong National Marine Park and the Five Islands.

Located right on the beach, overlooking the Five Island and idyllically set amongst towering palms and exotic flowering plants, this is as near to Man Friday's Treasure Island as one can imagine.

This authentic Thai-style house was lovingly created by a Swiss businessman, who spared nothing on creating a home of his dreams. Built in teak, the house was designed with amazing attention to detail, along with a multitude of treasures and artifacts that he collected from his travels around Thailand.

The entrance to this house sets the scene for the rest of this outstanding property. The striking entrance gate and long stone driveway lead down to the main house through a lush private garden that is home to a multitude of tropical plants, trees and flowers.

A green lawn fringes the long swimming pool followed by an arched lily pond entrance, which takes you to the main house overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, the Ang Thong National Marine Park and the Five Islands.

Opening directly onto a secluded beach, spectacular surroundings and cooling sea breezes, the spacious lounge features two large comfortable sofas and authentic Thai style armchairs. Surrounded by interesting artifacts and Thai antiques you'll find yourself being taken back to the 19th century colonial times of Indochina. The house manages to subtly incorporate modern comforts with old-world charm, offering the best of both yesteryear's allure and today's conveniences.

Here, is a place of relaxation, serenity and escape. The house is designed to allow places to gather as a group, or escape to your own peaceful retreat, catering to both socializing and soulful reflection. For those who must catch up on the news or sports, or just want to escape into a movie, there's also a TV, as well as a music system. The dining space is served by a fully equipped kitchen, while outside, a further Thai-style kitchen allows the in-house staff to prepare delicious meals (on request).

The Five Islands Beach House boasts four bedrooms, two of which are located in their own separate buildings adjacent to the main house. The first separate pavilion literally folds open onto a beautiful 10 by 3.5 meter swimming pool, providing the ultimate private retreat from the heat and putting the final touch to this quite magnificent property.

The second pavilion (mirroring the first) is slightly set back to the side of the main house giving it a sense of privacy along with exceptional sea views and its own private terrace. Both bedrooms have high gable roofs with vaulted ceilings and charming, rustic antique furniture retaining the authentic Thai feel, but both with comfortable new mattresses and luxurious cotton bedding, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, a small fridge and a modern shower en-suite.

Open to stunning sea views and overlooking the private tropical garden from the second floor of the main house, is a further double bedroom. Set in the triangular roof gables this bedroom exudes character and charm and comes straight from a scene from a storybook.

While attached to the main house, the fourth bedroom is a favourite with the kids, furnished with two single beds (can be made into a king size bed), poised in front of a large wall-mounted flat-screen TV. This room can be used as a fourth bedroom with all the comforts of the other bedrooms, such as air-con and an en-suite shower room. Alternatively, it has the flexibility to be set out as a TV/chill-out room where it can be a private place to catch up on the news or watch a movie in comfortable and cool surroundings.

The house is managed by our Thai staff who will welcome you with a cooling drink, show you around and are there to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Our efficient staff are always available but never intrusive. Piwi speaks great English and takes pride in welcoming guests to the villa.

Taling Ngam, is an area on the southern part of Koh Samui and is basically untouched by developers. Here you will find a much more relaxed feeling away from the hustle and bustle and the busy roads towards the north. Although the Five Islands Beach House is within close vicinity to several restaurants, peace and serenity rule the day.

The Five Island beach house is located 45 minutes to the airport, 30 minutes to Chaweng, 10 minutes to Nathon and 1 second to paradise.

Your holiday package includes airport transfers, electricity, high speed Wi-Fi & satellite TV. Rooms are cleaned daily, and linen & sheets are changed every four days.

Staying at the Beach House, offers a true Thai experience, from the décor to the surroundings to the famous Thai hospitality. You will never get bored of the postcard-perfect surroundings of this unique property. The beautiful, tropical outdoor spaces will take your breath away, whilst the warm, colourful interiors and conversation-starting artifacts will tempt you to pull up a chair and open a bottle of wine, and just contemplate life. While there's plenty to do on Samui, at Five Islands Beach House, you don't need to do anything if you don't want to – you can just… be.

From the owners: Peter & Ann:

"The Five Islands Beach House is our latest 'baby'. We've always had a passion for property, and have made Samui our home after falling in love with the island. Along with living on the island, we own another beachfront property, and we make it our job to ensure that our villas are maintained to a high standard and that our guests feel welcome and their needs are met – basing our expectations on the level of service we've experienced through our extensive travels abroad. Although we have our own home on Samui, when our beachfront villas are not occupied by holidaymakers, we ourselves take on the role of 'guests' and experience them as you would, tweaking here and there, to make them the perfect holiday escape.

We have opened the doors to this very special house, sharing it with not only our friends and family, but also holidaymakers from across the globe, wanting to experience that famous Thai hospitality and all Samui has to offer, so they'll understand why we chose to make this island paradise our home".

Please note that smoking is allowed at this property but only out side. Ashtrays are provided.

From Peter & Ann (the owners of The Five Islands Beach House)

"We also own one other beach villa. It is on the north east of the island and is called Villa Charmant. You can also find this property on The Holiday Lettings website and on Trip-advisor. Please do not hesitate to get in-touch if you would like more information".

Location description from owner

The Surat Thani Province region

Ko Samui is the third largest island of Thailand after Phuket and Kho Chang and one of the most popular destinations for travelers. In recent years it developed to a tropical beach resort but still maintained its charm and has everything to offer - from coconut tree fringed beaches to tropical jungles to a vibrant nightlife. Popular beaches are Chaweng, Lamai, Bangrak, Bophut & Maenam. Activities for relaxation, adventure or family abound such as elephant trekking, sailing, diving, golfing. Sightseeing activities include, to name but a few, waterfalls, temples, butterfly garden, zoo, monkey theatre. All is waiting to be experienced. "Imagine sitting on Chaweng Beach, sipping a from coconut, and the umpteenth vendor approaches you selling their wares. Now as fun as shopping on the beach can be, sometimes you want just a little peace and quiet to read a book. No music blaring from the bar next door, no jet-skis and no loud tourists yelling into their mobile phones. Wouldn't that be nice?Explore Taling Ngam, on Samui's less-developed south-west coast, for a taste of yesteryear.luckily it's possible to escape the crowds and discover the 'real' Samui, only a 45-minute drive from the commercial areas of the island. The unspoilt south-west is known to some as The Virgin Coast. The village of Taling Ngam forms part of this coast. From the ring-road, turn off at Route 4170 either coming from Nathon, or going clockwise, just past Hua Thanon. Follow the signs to Baan Taling Ngam, until you reach two massive elephant statues, guarding the entrance of the road to the rustic little village. Most visitors to the island don't venture past the tourist hotspots. Don't be one of them. Staying in Taling Ngam is well worth it! The area has seen the least change on the island, compared to parts that rapidly developed and lost their identity. It's almost as if time has stood still at Taling Ngam. Originally named Taling Punk (Damaged Shore) after a destructive storm in 1900 ruined the coastline, it recovered over time and was renamed Taling Ngam (Beautiful Shore) in 1942. Families go back several generations. Mainly descendants of Thai and Chinese migrants who made their living through fishing; they are content with keeping their traditional lifestyle. Once used by merchant traders over 100 years ago, this was one of the first seaports on the island. Locals provided water and provisions to boats that ventured past on their journey through South East Asia.Many traditional wooden Southern-style houses can be seen still standing in compounds with other out-buildings, containing the extended family. Add to that a granny sweeping outside (there's always one), several chickens digging in the dirt, a towering pile of coconuts ready for processing and an assortment of dogs stretched out in the road, and you have your average Taling Ngam neighbourhood.The landscape is lush and green, predominantly coconut groves and banana plantations. Here the jungle truly does meet the beach. Oh, and on the beach, don't be alarmed to see a buffalo or two enjoying a dip in the sea, or lazing under a palm tree. Don't worry, they're docile, and there's usually a handler nearby. You're also likely to see shellfish collected by hand, or little clams dug out by wiggling toes in the sand, for the evening meal. Long-tail boats bring in the day's catch. The waters here are clear, calm and shallow, perfect for kids – and buffaloes. Grab a shady spot under a palm on the beach, and enjoy it to yourself. To top it off it's the best spot on the island to catch the setting sun over the beautiful and mysterious Five Islands".Rosanne Turner © As Written for Samui Holiday Magazine

Taling Ngam

So what are these mysterious Five islands that are overlooked from Taling Ngam? They're known locally in Thai as 'Koh Si Koh Ha', meaning 'Four Islands-Five Islands', as one is hidden behind another. They're home to swifts, known for their famous nests which are the main ingredient in birds' nest soup. The birds are protected as their nests sell for thousands of US dollars. Sea Gypsies are the only human inhabitants of the Five Islands, their small wooden homes perched on rocky outcrops – much like nests themselves. These gypsies are employed to guard the nests from poachers trying to get their hands on this strangely precious commodity. The well-known Five Islands & Island View Restaurant, a popular location for weddings and viewing the sunset, offers long-tail boat trips to view the islands. Here you can also enjoy a massage, only footsteps away from the beach house.Aah, the sunsets. You'd be forgiven for thinking they've been Photoshopped, but they haven't. Taling Ngam is perfectly positioned to make the most of the evening sky as the sun goddess, Ra, tries to outdo her sunset creation from the previous one. Sometimes they are pretty pastels, dotted with cotton-candy type clouds. Other nights are a dramatic show of towering cumulonimbus clouds, highlighted by a glowing orb sinking into the bay. Village life centres around the local temple, Wat Kiri Wongkaram. As with most temple grounds, there's a sense of serenity for all passing through.Anyone preferring a peaceful break on Samui will be pleased with what Taling Ngam has to offer. The area is home to some of the finest resorts on the island, including Conrad Samui, The InterContinental Baan Taling Ngam and of course the Five Islands Beach House, although a few budget and mid-range options are available too. Taling Ngam is also a great place to practice the photography skills too, not only for the sunsets, but also the interesting village life and a few buffalo portraits. Staying on the Virgin Coast will be a most memorable part of your Samui experience.Rosanne Turner © As Written for Samui Holiday Magazine

“Stunning..........”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2016

I can honestly say I have never stayed at such an authentique and serene place. The house is amazing, full of beautiful artifacts and interesting paintings. I felt like I had gone back in time staying in the real Thailand . I would definitely stay here again. The kitchen is a little on the small side but adequate. There is another big kitchen out back if you needed more room for cooking big meals etc. Also if you are expecting bright and modern this is not for you. This place is the real thing! I sat many an evening sipping cocktails watching the most beautiful sunsets over the sea from our own private beach in front of the house. Because of the teak wood throughout, the bedrooms did seem a bit dark but after to speaking to the villa manager they actually added some new lighting to my room which made a big difference. Brilliant! The sea here is very clean and clear but can be a little stoney when paddling out to sea, so I would advise some water shoes for ease and comfort. It is not long before you feel the white sand under your feet and you can swim out into the clear blue ocean. All in all my stay here was superb and a superb place to unwind. You wouldn't find another place like this I'm sure on the island - it is truly a special place.
