Butterfly Garden Villa in Laem Set, Koh Samui - Peaceful And Quiet Location, 5 Mins To Restaurants And Beach, Close To Lamai & with Free Transfer

Located less than 10 min drive from Lamai, stunning Butterfly Garden Villa is a private, secure and spacious property. It is in our opinion our finest Villa.

A new automatic Toyota Avanza is also included in the rental price of the villa.

The Villa is set within lush tropical gardens and boasts a private salt water swimming pool, separate Jacuzzi, lovely sun deck with sun beds, outside shower and partial sea views. There is also an attractive open style Sala with table and chairs, overlooking the pool, together with a gas barbecue, where you can enjoy fine dining during the beautiful, balmy evenings. A tropical Mini Gym has also been created at the villa for guests' use.

Butterfly Garden Villa will enthral you with its impressive entrance as you walk through the Chinese doors to discover a newly created and beautifully designed Lotus pond, surrounded with lush greenery and filled with tropical fish and turtles.

From the living area, through French double doors, is a stunning, newly created Garden Patio, with table and chairs, surrounded by attractive bamboo and lit with lovely soft lighting. Enjoy a morning coffee here and see the sun rise; or have a drink in the beautiful early evening time and watch the sun slowly go down.

The dining area has an attractive large teak table that seats up to 8 people and is located next to the fully equipped, western-style, open plan Kitchen. Here is a dishwasher, oven, hob, microwave, large stand up, double fronted fridge and freezer, etc, together with lovely granite worktops.

With the Lotus Tesco Superstore that opened in Lamai, and the 24hr Tesco Express just less than 5 minutes drive, your every need is catered for. There is also the popular large food supermarket, Makro, only an 8 min drive away where you can also do all your grocery shopping.

In this area there is local Laem Sett beach, quiet and secluded. It is also ideal and safe for children where the ocean is shallow. Here one can experience a beautiful sunset, and see the local fishermen, with their long tailed boats, come into shore. Located on the beach is the popular and rustic, Thai style, Cool Bar when you can enjoy good food and a drink whilst soaking up the atmosphere.

About david smart

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 watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions Leagu

Why david smart chose Koh Samui

I was very attracted to the peaceful location where I built Butterfly Garden Villa. It is set in a quiet area, yet only a 5 minute walk from the beach, local restaurants, aquarium, tiger zoo and Butterfly Garden.

Laem Sett beach, the closest beach to the Villa, is a 2 minute drive, or a 10 minute walk. It is good for children, where the water can often be shallow in this part of the island.

Only 5 minutes away is the small fishing village of Baan Hua Thanon where you can shop at the local market, find ATMs, 24 hour 7-Eleven shop, doctor's surgery and a Chinese Temple.

Lamai is less than a 10 minute drive, with a beautiful expansive beach, stretching for miles, and fresh clear ocean in which to swim. Here in Lamai there are also many varied restaurants, shops and attractions.

What makes this villa unique

Butterfly Garden Villa is set in a peaceful area, with a beautiful lush green tropical garden surrounding the Villa.

We have also included within the rental of Butterfly Garden Villa the exclusive use of an automatic new Toyota Avanza car at no extra cost for its use.

The villa is a large and spacious property, with salt water swimming pool, separate jacuzzi, BBQ, sun deck, sun beds and open air sala with fan and lighting. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful lush green surroundings with partial ocean views from the Villa.

There is also a new and very stylish, open plan, tropical design mini gym.

The Villa has only just been extensively renovated and tastefully refurbished, creating a beautiful tropical style, where guests can safely and peacefully relax in this magical setting. And when the sun goes, a lovely setting is created within the Sala where you can enjoy a cocktail and soak up the ambiance of the surrounding tropical atmosphere. Or enjoy the delightful, newly created Garden patio, which leads from the tropical living area, and surrounded by attractive bamboo. Here you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning time or a drink in the balmy hot evening time.

The Villa is very spacious and many beautiful and exotic areas provided, both inside and out, for guests to sit, relax and soak up the wonderful tropical environment and peaceful atmosphere. You certainly will not be disappointed!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"I absolutely loved my wonderful stay at Butterfly Garden Villa. It is a very spacious villa, plenty of rooms, fresh and light, with pool and Jacuzzi, I so enjoyed the villa, where I spent a lot of time relaxing and enjoying the peaceful environment and area. There are even books provided to read. A complimentary large bowl of fresh fruit gives a wonderful welcome, and free mobile phone provided for my stay. Excellent local restaurants, cafes and a beach just down the road. Lamai, less than a 10 min drive, but I hired a cycle locally most days, which was great.

David is an absolutely excellent owner. Very friendly, courteous and helpful. I liked the fact there is an English owner, who has lived in Koh Samui for almost 10 years, knows the island well on how it works, where to go etc, and also has a helpful Thai assistant and Thai staff, which gave me a flavour of the Thai culture. Definitely recommended. I loved it!

Coast/Beach:

In this area is the local, quiet and secluded, Laem Sett beach, which is only 5-10 min walk or 2 min drive away. It is also ideal and safe for children where the ocean is shallow. Here one can experience a beautiful sunset, and see the local fishermen, with their long tailed boats, come into shore. Located on the beach is the popular and rustic, Thai style, Cool Bar when you can enjoy good food and a drink whilst soaking up the atmosphere.

Here in the south where Butterfly Garden Villa is located, it still has the feel on Koh Samui of over 20 years ago, unlike the north of the island. We are frequently told by guests they find the Thai people in this southern part of the island extremely hospitable, and welcoming. In the north where it is far more crowded and touristy on the island there is not always the opportunity to discover the true warmth and charm of the local people.

The Villa is also located less than 10 min drive south of Lamai, which is one of the most attractive seaside towns on the island and arguably the finest beach on Samui.

Nearby to the villa many of the island’s main attractions are less than 10 min drive away, which include The Butterfly Garden, The Waterfalls, Aquarium, Elephant trekking, The Grandmother Grandfather Rocks, water sports, Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing, horse riding, amongst many others.

There are dozens of other, also splendid restaurants, With the Lotus Tesco Superstore that opened in Lamai, and the 24hr Tesco Express just less than 5 minutes drive, your every need is catered for. There is also the popular large food supermarket, Makro, only an 8 min drive away where you can also do all your grocery shopping.

Tranquil and stunning villa.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday at the Butterfly Garden Villa. The villa was very spacious and even better than the pictures. It is set in a peaceful location which is private however just a short drive to restaurants, shops and the beach. Dave is an excellent host. He was waiting to greet us at the airport, driving us to our villa showing us all the local sights on the way. He has a vast knowledge of the area especially restaurants which we found really helpful and tried several of his recommendations. Dave supplied a car with the villa which is great for getting around and seeing the island. Can`t recommend this villa and Dave highly enough and would love to go back.

Beautiful, extremely spacious villa with privacy to all 4 Bedrooms

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa for 2 weeks. The owner was very helpful and went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. The villa is in a very quite area but only 10 min from Lamai and there is a 7 Eleven and great restaurants only 2 min away by car (which comes with the Villa). The pool area is incredible , the kids loved it and the bedrooms and living space are very spacious and adequate for more than one family sharing the Villa together.

We did not like the fact that there was no A/C in the living room and no TV's in the bedrooms and were slightly dissapointed from the local beach, mainly since the morning's low tides push the water too far away.

Feels like Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Butterfly Garden Villa is very beautiful! It is a superb Villa and I can't recommend it highly enough. From when we walked into the Villa on our arrival in the evening time we were bowled over. It has been wonderfully created by David, with that fantastic tropical feel. There are lots of beautiful different areas to sit both in and outside the Villa and it is so very peaceful. The Villa was superbly keen. David the owner, and all his staff, were extremely helpful, and it was great to be picked up on arrival.

The photos on the website gives a very good idea of the Villa, but it is actually superior to the photos. Eating out was fantastic. There are some friendly good restaurants nearby to walk to and I loved to do that in the evenings. It's a nice peaceful area, but very close also to lots of things we wanted to do. I enjoyed going to Laem Sett beach, watching the fisherman go out, and spending a couple of hours at Cool Bar on the beach.

I can't recommend Butterfly Garden Villa highly enough. It is an absolute treasure to stay in. I will be back!'
