Villa Baan Tom Talay is a beautiful villa set in a large 1600sqm plot in one of the best locations on Koh Samui.
The villa is perched on a peninsula providing spectacular views in every direction - the two beautiful beaches of Tongson Bay to the east and Samrong Bay to the west, towards the Angthong National Marine Park over which spectacular sunsets are guaranteed, and a picture postcard view of Koh Phangnan island to the north.
With an elevated position, yet no big hill to climb, Baan Lom Talay is easily accessible to the amenities and attractions that Koh Samui has to offer. The beautiful and popular Cheong Mon beach is just 5 minutes away, the oceanside restaurants and quaint shops of the old fisherman´s village at Bophut are just 10 minutes drive and the lively night life of Chaweng 15 minutes drive away.
Situated on the edge of a small security gated community, the villa offers privacy away from the big tourist crowds but is nevertheless only a short journey by car to some of the most beautiful beaches of the island which lie to the South and West of the house. Here you will find several romantic beachside restaurants to sample during your stay.
The villa is approached via a private driveway through the landscaped gardens to a carport. Steps lead up to the main west facing terrace which is furnished with a dining table with seating for 6 persons and 2 rattan day beds. The terrace is bordered with a lotus pond incorporating tropical water plants is a perfect place to relax at night watching the sun go down over the National Marine Park and see the twinkling lights of all the beachside dining establishments dotted along the island ´s North coast.
The terrace continues around the house offering stunning views of Koh Phangnan to the North and the East terrace is furnished with relaxing patio furniture making it a perfect place for early risers to have breakfast whilst watching the sunrise.
Inside the villa the western style kitchen is centrally located for access to all the terraces and is fully equipped to include an oven, hob, coffee maker, microwave and fridge freezer.
The living area is separated from the kitchen by a breakfast bar and has glass walls on 3 sides and cool tiled floors. The room is traditionally furnished with Thai style furniture including two teak sofas and a coffee table, a Persian rug and other Thai soft furnishings. The room also has a DVD player with a library of 15 DVD´s, board games, a chess computer and a selection of reading books for your indoor entertainment.
Three of the air conditioned bedrooms (two with ensuite bathrooms) are located in the main living floor of the house and have polished wood floors and 4 poster beds dressed with mosquito nets. The two main bedrooms facing East and West have sliding patio doors leading on to a private terrace. The third bedroom has a south facing window overlooking the garden. The bathrooms are fully tiled and have wet shower rooms. The fourth bedroom is located at garden level off the carport area and has its own ensuite bathroom. There is a small terrace with outside furniture also.
Outside steps lead down from the villa into the tropical garden and the large swimming pool which has a non slip tiled surround furnished with teak sun loungers for your relaxation. To one side of the pool is a cool sala with teak seating one of many perfect spots you will find around the villa.
Ban Lom Talay is a perfect holiday villa for 3-4 couples or a family with children, and can also provide that perfect romantic retreat for a honeymoon couple. It offers very good value for such a stunning property.

My husband and me are Germans who love to travel in the world. We had rarely seen any spot so lovely.
B. Morschel purchased this villa in 2004
We are using this house as a vacation house for ourselves, for the family of our children and we rent it out from time to time. We fell in love with Thailand many years ago and have been touring this part of Asia for many many years but found Koh Samui as one of the best places in Thailand - clean beaches, friendly people, good food and a bit of a night life - but not too much like many other busy places like Phuket or Pattaya.
Here at Baan Lom Talay Villa you are at one of the most sought after spots on the island - away from the crowds and yet close enough to the main tourist hot spots and also away from traffic noise.
We (2 persons) spent parts of our honey moon in this villa and were amazed by the view. Some pictures online may look perfect but honestly pictures are not enough to describe what you will see while swimming in your endless pool or eating on the terasse.
One thing that was important to us: Nobody can look into your pool as you are on the peak of a "hill" and protected by trees vs neighbours.
Note: As you find yourself on that hill, renting the car is crucial if you want to leave the villa and see the island. The car (I think it was Toyota Hillux) is not fancy nor comfortable to drive but you anyhow use it for a couple of kilometers on a small island only, it is automatic drive and I believe it was good value for money.
The villa has 3 good bed rooms out of which the master bed room has it's own bathroom (with shower, no bath tub) and the other 2 rooms have to use a shared toilette/shower with entrance from the living room (with open kitchen) being the center of the villa. Bed rooms have air conditioning while living room/kitchen do not. Evenings in June were quite windy (which is good given the heat and prevents from moskitos).
The contact to the landlord is indeed very reliable and effective. He arranges airport pick up, does not charge international bank fees and answers your questions in advance with patience and comprehension.
Ending this, one more thing: the view is simply amazing :) (Do no remember having ever had a better pool-view-privacy experience)
Nous avons passé 3 semaines inoubliables dans cette merveilleuse villa. La 1ère semaine avec nos 3 enfants, puis avec ma belle soeur et son mari. Nous avions tous notre intimité car ma famille logeait au 1er étage où se situe 3 chambres. 2 très spacieuses et luxueuses avec salle de bain, vue sur la mer et 1 plus petite et plus simple avec salle de bain juste à côté. L'autre couple dormait au rez de chaussée où se trouve une chambre avec salle de bain + kitchenette avec baie vitrée donnant sur le jardin et vue mer. Toutes les chambres sont climatisées. La maison est très bien équipée, le ménage est fait tous les jours, le jardin et la piscine nettoyés.
Mais surtout on ne se lasse pas de regarder la mer qui entoure la maison. Le matin vous assistez au lever du soleil sur la terrasse arrière en prenant le petit déjeuner. Le coucher du soleil vous saisit par sa beauté le soir au bord de la piscine..
Nous sommes allés à la plage de Choeng, tranquille, propre et très jolie. De nombreux restaurants sur le bord de plage.
C'était notre troisième voyage en Thaïlande, il fût le meilleur.
Un grand merci aux propriétaires à l'écoute des demandes et des besoins de ses locataires.
