About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps Up To 8, Pool Villa With Unobstructed Sea Views

Gecco Pool Villa is situated 35 meters high up on a cliff with panoramic view over the sea and will treat you with wonderful sunsets. This exclusive villa is built with white concrete walls, thatched roofs and large glass openings towards the sea. The Villa was finished in April 2015.

The Gecco Pool villa is perfect for families with small children since there is a connecting door between the bedrooms on deck floor as well as on lower floor. Also for teenagers that sometimes like to stay away on their own (lower room).

Gecco Villa comes with four double bedrooms on two levels, two of them with ensuite bathrooms and two sharing one bathroom. All rooms come with comfortable king size beds, one of the bedrooms also with a sofa in front of the large 50″TV. On the lower floor one of the bedrooms and the bathroom have built in natural stones, which make the rooms very special. There is a kitchen for smaller cooking with tableware for 8 persons, the kitchen is part of bedroom 1. In the outside sand stone deck area you will find a large round teak dining table and a rattan sofa group under roof as well as sun beds by the 6 x 2,5 m infinity pool. There is also an outdoor shower that can be used before and after swimming in the pool. Here you can relax day and evening. The villa has a size of 185 sqm inside and outside.

The Gecco pool villa is personally decorated with carefully selected items in thai style in order to give a good, peaceful and relaxed feeling.

On the lower floor in Turtle Villa there is a separate part which has a massage room with two massage beds that can be used by guests staying in both Turtle and Gecco Villas.

There are two common bathing piers by the sea in the area. This is also one of the best places on the island with a chance to see both black tip reef sharks (harmless) and turtles.

If you are 2 persons your will have access to 1 bedroom, 3-4 persons you get 2 bedrooms, 5-6 persons you get 3 bedrooms and 7-8 persons you get 4 bedrooms . The bedrooms not used will be locked. You will have the property to yourselves.

Free pick up at Koh Tao Pier on arrival and departure. Please let us know of arrival time and ferry company minimum 3 days before arrival.

"In Villa Breakfast" can be ordered and delivered to the villa (9 options). Information to be found in our villa binder.

Our housekeepers will make your beds and clean the house every day. Except for this it´s a self-catering household. Our housekeeper Phyu´s English is not so good, but if you have some patience and not talk to fast you will understand each other.

Services available in the villa on request (at extra cost):

- SPA treatments on our own massage bed (on lower floor in Turtle Villa)

- Thai food, pizza, hamburger, pasta, salad etc can be delivered to the villa, breakfast, lunch or dinner

- Education for diving certificates can be arranged partly in the villa.

Instead of paying a refundable deposit we require that you leave one of your passports during the whole rental period to our housekeeper. You will get it back at check out after having paid for the minibar and any damages or losses. At check out you pay cash in Thai Baht.

Our community consists of around 20 private villas. Our guests come here to relax and take it easy with friends and family and therefore the community has rules. We do not accept loud music or wild parties or any other disturbances that may affect your neighbors. Please keep the volume of noise at a minimum after 10 pm. Don´t misunderstand us, we want you to enjoy yourselves but in a respectful way like anywhere else, but if you are looking for an accommodation for having wild parties, this is not the place.

If you are more persons at check in than you have booked for, you will not be able to check in. No persons except for those registered are allowed to sleep in the villa.

The villa cannot be rented for 2 - 8 persons and then take up a large amount of friends to spend the days and evenings at the villa.

Please note that taxis are more expensive on the islands than on the mainland. Always agree on the price before.

The weather on Koh Tao can change in a minute, we therefore ask you not to leave cushions outside and always close windows and doors when leaving the villa.

In our community we spray against mosquitos, however we recommend you to keep doors to bedrooms closed at sunset when they are mostly active. Also recommend you to use mosquito repellent and cover your body in the evening.

To avoid ants and other displeasant animals, make sure to pack any left overs in the fridge and clean the kitchen after your meals.

About Bob

How it all started

The first time we (my wife, children and I) came to Thailand was 20 years ago. After this first trip we have visited the country at least once a year. Much has changed but the best is still there, the climate, the food and the friendly people. After having traveled around in almost every corner of the country for 15 years we started to become quite tired of staying in different hotels. For two years we were looking around in the areas we liked best to find our dream land where we could build our dream house.

We were on our way to Koh Lanta to look at a plot that we were interested in, luckily we went even beyond Koh Tao to have a look what land was availabe there. After only 6 hours on the island, we had found our dream plot with an amazing location 35 meters above the sea, and it was for sale! Good was also that the ground was perfect for the dream project that we had in our minds for all these years. A villa facing south treating us with both sunrises and sunsets. Our wish was to have 3 bedrooms in separate buildings so that one can live undisturbed but close to rest of the family or friends, a main house with kitchen/dining/sitting areas, a large free form swiming pool and a private access to the sea from the large sun deck.

Bob purchased this villa in 2015

Why Bob chose Ko Tao

After 2,5 years of planning and construction our dream project was finished and we could move in.

It feels great to share this amazing villa with others that have the same feelings about it as we do. We try to spend as much time as possible in the villa, but since we have had more bookings than we ever thought we have built two new pool villas, Gecco and Turtle Villas, on another cliff just 150 meters from Villa Sabai Jai Eagle Villa.

As we mentioned we have been staying in many hotels around the country (and the world). Whenever you come to a new place you have to get to know the place and it takes time. Maybe you miss the best things because you didn´t know about them. That´s why we have prepared two binders, one for the villa and one for the island with redommendations of what to do, where to eat and what beaches to visit etc. So it will be easy for you to get a quick feeling about the island. We hope you find them useful!

Make your dreams come true!

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we arrived at the villa Phyu the housemaid was waiting to show us around the villa. The decoration of the villa is very stylish, clean and neat. It was dark when we arrived and we couldn’t wait to wake up and see the view from the pool terrace as we knew it would be amazing. The view did not disappoint, you could spend your whole visit getting lost in the beauty of it. The beds are all positioned so that you can see the stunning views whilst lying in bed. The villa contained extremely detailed information about the villa, the restaurants and beaches of the island. Bob and Asa have supplied wonderful descriptions of each beach, restaurant and the activities available on Koh Tao, taking away the worry of having to spend too much time figuring out what to do and where to eat for yourself. Phyu, the maid, was extremely helpful. On our first day we asked her for directions to the nearest beach and instead of just telling us, she walked down there with us to show us the way. The villa is situated quite high up which does mean that it’s quite a workout to get to the beach, but is well worth it. The taxi’s, although quite expensive are really quick and reliable. You can also order take away food to the villa which we did on a couple of occasions and both times the food arrived quickly and tasted amazing. Bob and Asa were on location whilst we were there and they couldn’t have been more helpful. We were also invited to have a few drinks with them the day before we left and they are just the loveliest people who really want you to feel at home and enjoy your holiday. We really didn’t want to leave. Thank you Bob and Asa.

Summer paradise all year round

  • 5 of 5

We surely can recommend this summer paradise place for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. If you like design and natural material you will like this unique little villa for sure. Add the amazing view and the beatyful infinity pool and the vacation is complete. The service and cleaning was fabulous and almost anything could be tricked out if you only had a little patience. We thank Bob and his wife for the management hospitality and we surely wanna come back some time. Greetings from Lill and Will, Sweden

Luxury and very convenient with a wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

This was the most beautiful Villa I have ever stayed at. The pool was just outside the bedroom and just to look over the ocean when in the pool was an extraordinary feeling. The Villa overlooked the ocean where you actually can see the small sharks swimming if you are lucky. The Villa was very clean and modern with all fascilities. The staff was friendly and I will certainly recommend this site for everyone that want to have "The little extra". I can't figure out anything that wasn't 100....

Except for diving you can:

• Fishing expeditions with equipment provided and a professional advisor to guide you.

• Visit the marine park

• Visit the paradise island Nang Yuan

• Rent a motorbike or taxi and explore the island

• Muay Thai (Thai boxing)
