I moved to Koh Samui 2005 from Cirencester in the UK, where I had my own Flooring business. I was also involved in property development & rental and converted a large number of various style properties in the UK. From my first visit to Thailand in 1990 I had a growing desire to live in Thailand and create a new challenge. Inspired by opportunity for business I chose Koh Samui.
Moving here, I created 3 properties; Palm View, Butterfly Garden and Hideaway Villa. Later, we completed 3 more villas on the beautiful ocean view, Sitara Retreat, named Villa Crystal, Emerald and Sapphire. We manage Villa Serendipity for a neighbour from Hong Kong.
I have returned to Europe twice in 10 years of living here – 1 day in Milan and 3 days in Madrid...to watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions Leagu
I was very drawn to this area where there is an attractive local beach only a 5 min walk away called Ban Chuet, and is lined with many fine restaurants. The Bay is not commercialised, and provides a local charm and beauty to the vicinity, where you can easily wile away your days and evenings.
Only minutes drive away, or an 8 minute walk, is the small fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where you can shop at the local market and there are many interesting individual shops, doctors surgery, 24hr 7-Eleven shop and a Chinese temple located here.
Lamai is a 5 minute drive, where you will find a beautiful expansive beach, stretching for miles, with the fresh clear ocean in which to swim. Here in Lamai there are also many varied restaurants, shops and local attractions.
Having gained a great deal of experience of the property market on Koh Samui, I designed Palm View Villa myself. I created the large swimming pool as the focal point, with Palm View villa wrapped around the pool. Two spacious bedrooms and the living room all have French doors which open out onto the pool, which is beautifully lit at night and creates a peaceful and serene ambiance. We also include within the rental of the Villa, the use of a new automatic Toyota Avanza vehicle at no extra cost.
The villa is private and designed within a walled boundary providing safety and security whilst staying here.
I loved the area with the coconut plantations and lush greenery, where you will see the water buffalo grazing nearby. With only an 8 minute walk to Bang Chuet Bay and the local village of Ban Lamon, it provided the perfect location to create Palm View Villa.
Palm View Villa is a real treasure. It has a beautiful, really good sized pool, larger than average for a villa, set in the centre, with the rooms wrapped around the pool, which I loved the ambience and atmosphere I found it gave. It also felt secure with gated entrance. Absolutely beautiful at night as well where the pool is lit up and we would sit out and relax, with sometimes a midnite swim in the fresh water pool.
The beach and local restaurants were only about a 10 min walk for us. David, the owner, was fantastic. So helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. The villa was kept really clean by the thai cleaning staff and bed linen changed every 3 days. Palm View gave us a fantastic stay, one I will never forget and highly recommend.
The nearest beach to Palm View Villa is Bang Chuet Bay, only 700 mtrs and less than a 10 min walk away. The attractive Bay has several fine restaurants, serving both delicious Thai and European food. There is the excellent Krao Chao Ban restaurant and the smart, newly opened, Holiday Beach Bar & Restaurant to name only two, with all the restaurants idyllically set looking over the lovely Bay. There is also water sports to be found here, including Kayaking (provided free by Holiday Beach Restaurant). The Bay is not commercialised, and provides a local charm and beauty to the vicinity, where you can easily wile away your days and evenings.
A few Thai style salas can be rented by the day, along with different water sports at Bang Chuet Bay.
Within walking distance of the Villa there are also many fine restaurants, doctors surgery, barbers, chinese temple and interesting local shops.
A daily fish market selling various other produce can be found just 2 minutes ride away at Baan Hua Thanon, plus many other local shops of all descriptions. A Seven Eleven, 24 hr opening with ATM, is located here.
Thai boxing is popular and Lamai, only a 5 min drive away, has its own professional and amateur boxing ring.
There are also Temples to visit, Namsuang Waterfalls, Snake Farm, Crocodile Farm, Elephant trekking, Thai Cookery courses, horse riding, amongst others, which can be found only a short distance away.
A car is recommended. A new automatic Toyota Avanza car is included within the rental price for 4 bedroom Palm View Villa. Should you wish to have the use of a small motorcycle, this can be rented cheaply, daily or weekly.
