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 first 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. In early 2017 we created 1 Bedroom Villa Amber and Dec 2018 we also have the addition of a further new 1 Bedroom villa known as Villa Topaz. We are very proud to have included these two additional luxury villas onto our rental business. We manage Villa Serendipity for a neighbour from Hong Kong. I have returned to Europe twice in 14 years of living here – 1 day in Milan and 3 days in watch my beloved Spurs in the Champions League
Why david smart chose Laem Set
I love this peaceful and unspoiled, natural area, in the southern part of the island, where Hideaway Villa is located. Only a 150mtr walk from the Villa is a small secluded beach, where you can see spot the fishermen go out with their fishing boats to sea. The sea is shallow here at times, and therefore, also ideal for young children. Hideaway Villa is located in the charming area of Laem Set, where I felt instantly drawn to purchasing land and creating one of my first villas on the island. There are about half a dozen varied local Thai restaurants around in the vicinity, serving delicious Thai and Western dishes, and all within easy walking distance. Lamai, a 10 minute drive by car, has a wonderful expansive beach with a beautiful clear ocean. Here in Lamai one can also experience and enjoy the many varied restaurants, cafes, local shops and nearby attractions. Also, only a 25 minute drive, is the seaside town of Chaweng.
What makes this Villa unique
Hideaway Villa is an elegant open-plan tropical style Villa, with a lovely surrounding wrap around Lotus pond with colourful tropical fish, including carp, catfish and baby turtles. The fish and turtles have now become very friendly and accustomed to people, often coming close to the edge of the water for their regular feed! A tropical style Bathroom has been imaginatively created, with bath tub, shower and surrounding lush green tropical plants, where you can relax and soak in the bath tub or sevthe walk in shower at the end of the day. Located next to the open plan Living area and Bedroom 1 is the lovely salt water swimming pool, surrounded by tropical greenery, and ready for a daily dip in the water. A local taxi service and travel agency is found only a few minutes walk from the Villa, together with good, reputable massage shops. Guests love elegant Hideaway Villa and is very popular, with its exquisite tropical ambiance and location within the charming area of Laem Set. We pick you up from your arrival point on the island to take you to Hideaway Villa and a return journey at the end of your stay. I have lived on the island for over 13 years and am happy to provide any information I can to help make your stay rewarding and enjoyable.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful property. It was our favorite of the whole stay.
This property is beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice. We loved the fish pond, pool, and out door bathroom. The staff and owner were so friendly and helpful too. We ended up extending our stay for an addition 2 days because we loved the place so much.
Villa conforme aux photos. Ce n'est peut être pas le coin le plus touristique de l'île mais pour nous c'était le top pour découvrir de sublimes paysages et rencontrer des personnes très accueillantes. Avons fait l'expérience du gros orage avec coupure de courant mais avons survécu 😁. Au final île à découvrir et la villa est un superbe pied à terre de repos. A bientôt David et la Thaïlande.
Bonjour Carole, je suis ravie que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour sur l'île.
Villa mit Überraschungen
Die Lage der Villa fußläufig zu Restaurants und Strand ist super. 23 Stunden am Tag hat man seine Ruhe, da direkt neben der Villa ein Hotel ist. Dieses Hotel gehört zu Hare Krishna. Die Sauberkeit innerhalb der Villa ist verbesserungsfähig. Der Taxi Service von Eid war super.
Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Nur als Antwort möchten wir klarstellen, dass es ein geschmackvoll gestaltetes Yoga und Detox Hotel ist, das sich nebenan befindet. Wir sind stolz auf die positiven Kommentare, die für die Sauberkeit unserer Villen abgegeben werden, und sind sehr enttäuscht, Ihre Bemerkung zu sehen. Wir tun unser Bestes, um unsere Gäste zufrieden zu stellen und sicherzustellen, dass wir einen hohen Servicestandard bieten.
Local Laem Set beach, a 5 min walk from Hideaway Villa, is a lovely natural area. It has mangroves, palm trees and sandy beach, retaining a tranquil and peaceful charm. This is not a touristy beach with lots of attractions, which can hold an appeal. You will not find crowds of people and hawkers. The water is shallow and safe for swimming, which can be ideal with small children.
Enjoy a quiet massage on the beach in front of the clear waters, or a drink at the Thai style Cool Bar located right on the beach, serving excellent food and drinks.
Also close by here are Centara Villas and Samui Orchid which opens their doors to non residents and has many facilities to enjoy, including smart restaurants and bars.
Just a 10 min drive away is Lamai Beach. This has a long expansive beach and caters far more for tourists with restaurants, bars, water sports and other attractions. Five mins north of Lamai is Silver beach one of the best beaches on the whole island.
A few mins walk away from Hideaway Villa, within this charming area, you will find several fine restaurants, serving both delicious Thai and Western food, small coffee shop, few small garden bars, traditional Thai massages available, two taxi services and a local travel agency.
7 Elevens and Family Marts, the local 24 hour shops, have ATMs, and are also only a few minutes drive from the villa. There are dozens of other wonderful restaurants only within a 5-10 min drive.
A Lotus Tesco Superstore and also the popular large food supermarket, Makro, both located in Lamai, are only a 10 min drive from the villa where you can buy all your grocery shopping. A 24hr Tesco Express is also just less than a 5 minute drive away.
Many of the island's main attractions are less than a 10-minute drive from your holiday villa, which include the Butterfly Garden, the Waterfalls, the Aquarium, Elephant Trekking, the Grandmother Grandfather Rocks, horse riding, water sports, Thai Boxing, excellent Thai Cookery courses, Night Markets and many more interesting activities to explore and enjoy.
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.
