A beautiful villa in a great location. Villa had everything we needed for a relaxing and stress free holiday. Win and Aye are very friendly and do a wonderful job of cleaning and looking after the place. David the owner was easy to communicate with and provided a lot of info to get our holiday started. Would definitely stay again if we ever came back to Samui.

From the outset of the booking process we had a good feel about this villa as the owners, David and Tony, responded immediately to any questions we had, they also send us lots of pre arrival information with things to do which helped us plan our week at the villa. The villa is about 10-15 min drive from the airport. Initially we though the road up to the villa was a little steep, however we quickly got used to this, and once at the villa our reaction was WOW, the view is just amazing, semi jungle location but still only minutes from Chaweng, shops and restaurants. We had mopeds organised by the local agent who looks after the villa, and they were delivered to the villa once we arrived. There was also a welcome basket from the owners, with snacks, water, soft drinks, tea, coffee, a bottle of wine and breakfast items to get us started before we had a chance to go shopping. The villa is furnished to a high standard, with TV and Apple TV boxes in all the rooms so we could stream of our devices, the wifi was excellent and very fast. We loved the white tiled pool with its changing mood lights which set the ambiance at night. The couple who looked after the villa were just adorable, Aye and Win, they also organised food delivery a few nights, cooked by them, the yellow prawn curry is just a must. We will definitely stay again when back in Samui.

The villa is located half way up the hill which guarantees amazing views of Samui. Definitely worth waking up for sunrise views! The villa is modern, spacious and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. A car or a moped is recommended to get about the island. We were crazy enough to walk to and from Tesco Lotus one day, and although not far, climbing that big hill in midday sun was not the smartest idea!! (Although I challenge you to it!!). You need to head over to the fisherman's village for the following: Walking market on a Friday night - try all the amazing street food & do a little bartering Niverva for the most amazing steak Cafe 69 for some random fusion asian food - who knew thai green curry pie would work?! (trust me, it's amazing). I would definately stay at the villa again and I don't think I could ever tire of sitting around the pool and just seeing that view.

Stayed here for 3wks, what an amazing stay we had, villa was fabulous everything-you could want home from home but better. Views from villa were spectacular, car or moped is a must due to steep hills but don't let that put you or anyone off because it made it all part of a fabulous stay. Would stay here again without question and would recommend it to anyone. Koh Samui is the most beautiful, amazing place. Tonny, David, Sue,Winn & Ayre were a great help. Thank you for a magical stay.

A beautiful villa, with all the nessesary facilities, high quality furnishings, a lovely terrace and pool and with an amazing view. The staff Aye & Win who came in every day to clean and make the beds, were just great and they made amazing food for us when we ordered it. When they made the beds, the bed linen and pillows were lovely with towels formed as an elephant or swans. The house is not far from the city or the nice beaches. We would highly recommend this villa and we would very much like to visit it again!!!

The location of this villa is just incredible. The villa is placed in the mountains and have the most amazing view.

The villa is clean and spotless at all times. Aye and Win is the employees at the villa and comes to the villa 6 days a week to clean. They are so nice and do their job to absolut perfection.
