The master bedroom has a king size "flying" bed, a 50" flat screen TV, with premium programing by satellite, DVD player and library, Wi-Fi ADSL internet access (always free), air-con, & the best views on Koh Tao, all a short (3-5min.) walk (or a quick complimentary drive to anywhere you want to go!) down the hill to Sairee beach, the longest & most popular beach on Koh Tao... The "Upper" has a second big air-con bedroom with full size (double) bed, and an additional fold out couch bed, available at no extra charge. There are many great restaurants that will deliver wonderful meals to your villa door. We can arrange for in-house massage, private yoga sessions, and much, much more. There is a carp and giant catfish pond, just outside of the master bedroom window, and some fish food for hand feeding them, if you like... I promise you a wonderful time!

About Lincoln

Monkey Flower Villas was hand built by artist/owner Lincoln Kroll, along with his wife, Woonsen, over more than a decade. Starting out by building their dream home, Lincoln & Woonsen kept building and now have four unique luxury villas on their one and a half acre estate. Having started the villas rental business almost as an after thought, the owners wanted to offer their guests the best experience possible... "We consider every one of our guests to be very special, and part of our Family." Monkey Flower Villas remains a Family owned and operated business, and puts a lot of love into everything they do.

Lincoln purchased this in 2001

Why Lincoln chose Thailand

Pure paradise! Words and photos don't do our little resort justice... We hear it all the time from our guests, that it is even more beautiful than the photos... Warm water, warm people, day and night fun and excitement... Please be our very special guests, I know that you will be very happy you did!

What makes this unique

Monkey Flower Villas offers the best of Koh Tao, and also the best value. Our location is close to all the action of the town and beach, but without the noise, and in a much more private and secure location. I like to say that we are the Beverly Hills of Koh Tao. Not only will you enjoy the largest rooms and private swimming pool on Koh Tao, but you will never tire of the most stunning views imaginable, from the award winning, private infinity edge swimming pool, and from the living room and sun deck... You can even enjoy the roof top views with access from a bridge, and jump into the pool (if you dare!)... Be as quiet or as noisy as you like... It is all yours! Our lovely staff is always there to help you have the best experience possible. When you check-in, you will be given a local Thai mobile phone with all of the important numbers and credit, already installed. You will appreciate our famous 24 hour a day car and driver service, for drop-off and pick-up to anywhere you want to go on Koh Tao, during your entire stay! We are very proud of our customer service, and we consistently rank at #1 on the most popular review sites. I hope that you will be our very special guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely amazing villa(s), no downsides at all with this rental! The place and the view are the best, the location is ideal (very quiet and still very close from Sairee village) and the price is reasonnably fair.

Our group of 9 mates rented the "Gardenia" villa for 3 nights in November. Even before we arrived, the owner (Lincoln) was very helpful and was responding every email as quickly as he could. As soon as we got to Koh Tao, and during our entire stay, the whole staff (and especially Nick, Steve and Mo) was available at anytime and they did everything they could to offer us the best experience ever! We loved it so much that we extended our stay for 2 extra nights in the "Upper" villa, which is even more beautiful. Even though this second villa is not designed for a big group, they added extra beds without problems.

I highly recommend Monkey Flower villa to anyone, even for groups of friends with limited budget as the price is fairly reasonable for the experience.

And I wanted to thank you again everyone at the villa(s) for your service and your kindness. We had the best time!

From my experience, I think you will want to spend as much time on Koh Tao as possible (at Monkey Flower, or elsewhere)... I hear, time and time again, from our guests that they wished they had more time here. Koh Tao is a small island, but it is full of wonderful experiences! There are so many things to do like snorkeling, & SCUBA diving, hiking, or renting a motorbike, or quad (four wheel all terrain vehicle) to explore the many dirt roads and paths around Koh Tao, there is a vibrant night life, and unlike most of Thailand, it is mostly kid safe, and family friendly, with fire dancing and music, BBQ's on the beach... If you can slip away for a late night, there is dancing till dawn, and really good all night parties. There is a flying trapeze adventure that is really fun (I have done it... It's not just for the kids!), there is mini golf, and you can watch a movie on a big screen, while eating your dinner at many of the local restaurants... There are many great choices for cuisine as well, so you can sample wonderful meals, and deserts from around the world. You can rent kayaks, and even shoot guns and practice archery at the shooting range. The true charm of Koh Tao comes from it's people, and though there are some local Thai's that do not share the happy good feelings, most are really nice, and you can meet interesting local expats, and people from around the world. You can take a long tail boat on a day trip around the island, stopping at different snorkeling spots and bays, or visit Koh Nang Yuan island, which is one of the most photographed beaches in the world, with a very rare three islands which are connected by two thin stretches of white sand beach, where you can ride a world class zip-line between two islands. There are charter sail boats, and other water sports, as well as fishing adventures, you can jump off the big boulders into the deep warm water, or go abssailing on a rock climbing adventure... Really, it is a special island, and the longer you stay, the more you love it!

Notes on accommodation: The "upper" residence may not be a safe place for un-attended small children, as there are many high places, swimming pools and fish ponds which could be a hazard to un-attended children. For small children, the "lower" residence is probably best. Outside: Monkey Flower Villa is situated on approx. one and a half acres of beautiful view land, about 100 meters above the sea. The property has been extensively landscaped, and offers a beautiful and serene environment which will inspired and re-charged your senses! The "Upper" villa has a large private infinite edge swimming pool and whirlpool with romantic colored lights at night... it's all yours, no need to share, and no one can see you if you decide to skinny dip!
