About the property

Villa in Choeng Mon, Island of Koh Samui, Thailand - Your Beautifully Furnished Home In Paradise Just Minutes From A Spectacular White Sand Beach

On The Rocks is a very special hideaway that offers you peaceful respite from the worries of everyday life. Located just a few minutes walk from lovely white sand Choeng Mon beach, this really is your tropical home away from home. On The Rocks is a beautiful three-bedroom villa, set in lush tropical gardens with a large private infinity pool, stunning sea views and really is what Samui dreams are made of. On arrival at the island’s pretty airport you will be met by a driver who will whisk you away to begin relaxing in private tropical gardens surrounded by high bamboo walls. Friendly staff are just a phone call away for any assistance and housekeepers will change crisp white bedlinen and clean every third day. The location is quiet and peaceful but in easy reach of the island's many attractions.

About John Howe

We are based both in France and here in Samui with a roughly six-month split in each of these two idyllic locations. Having both worked in the airline business, we are aware of how important the details are when staying away from home. Our aim has always been to make this a home in which anyone would feel pampered and completely able to relax. We have spent a great deal of time in making this fantastic venue as comfortable, stylish and easy to be in as our own family home.

John Howe purchased this villa in 2009

Why John Howe chose Choeng Mon Beach

Having visited Koh Samui with our daughter and her fiancé, we fell in love with this beautiful tropical island. We then returned enough times as visitors to confirm our initial thoughts that this would be a perfect home in the tropics. After looking at several locations, we realised that this hillside in Choeng Mon, with its spectacular views, was perfect for our home. We love the combination of local Thai culture and five star accommodation that this area offers. In short, the people are wonderful, the house is fantastic and the view is blissful.

What makes this villa unique

The constantly changing view and colours of the ocean. The perfumed and richly planted garden. The quality of the furnishings and interior. The multi-lingual management. But most of all this is a villa with all the personal touches and comforts of a family home.

Sensational View

  • 5 of 5

"On the Rocks" villa was a sensational stay. Waking up every morning to the stunning view over looking Cheon Mon bay was a delight. Could spend all day floating in the infinity pool staring out at the breathtaking view. We are a family of 4, with teenager boys. Everything we needed was available in the villa from cooking ware, laundry, basic ingriedients to board games. The attention of detail the owners have invested in their villa was very evident from the moment we checked in. Owners are very helpful and quick in responding to our queries with no fuss. For sure we would book this villa should the opportunity arise for us to visit Koh Samui again! It is essentially a gem tucked away in prime location with a stunning postcard view from every room in the villa!

On The Rocks is only a few minutes walk to beautiful, quiet Choeng Mon beach-one of the finest and most scenic on the island. You can walk through the striking Spa resort of Sala Samui to find yourself on this wonderful beach. There are many other stunning beaches on Samui for you to explore.


On The Rocks is ten minutes drive from the award winning Samui International Airport and approx. Ten minutes to the main shopping area of Chaweng. Car rental is available from the owners at a very favourable rate. A new Ford Everest, 4x4, A/C, up to 7 seats. Scooter rental is available locally.


Big C and Tesco Lotus, both large shopping complexes, are a short drive away, while 7/11’s are everywhere. The island has many boutiques, tailors and gift shops. We suggest visitors bring Travelers Cheques or cash as the exchange rate is better in Thailand. ATM’s, money exchanges and banks are in most villages.
