Fabulous villa and stay
What a beautiful villa! We had great views and a very spacious accommodation. Outside space and pool had breathtaking views. The house staff (Ms. Sao and Ay) took great care of us with a huge home cooked breakfast each morning, and keeping everything clean and tidy every day which was something we didn't expect. Ray was very responsive and Ms. Sao helped us out when we had any questions. Only thing to note is you will need a car or to take taxis to go out as the villa is on top of a hill. Highly recommend!
Wow, what a fabulous villa
We stayed here for a week to attend a family wedding at the Four Seasons.
The pictures don’t do the villa justice, the view is one of the best on the island, and benefits from a nice breeze being so high up the hill.
We arranged for Sao and Ayy to cook for us on the night of our arrival, and it was so good and such good value I think it spoilt us for the rest of the week.
The cooked breakfast is also another highlight. I have never seen so many different ways of cooking eggs for 5 people.
Ray was always very quick to come back to any quieries we may have had, and we used the services of Mr Moo the villa taxi service who was brilliant shuttling us around to the different functions we had to attend.
We have used HomeAway before but this is one of best experiences ever. My mother was spending the next week in a hotel on the beach but did not want to leave. Thanks Ray for the use of your fantastic home.
An excellent villa with very friendly owner and staff.
Would recommend it highly for s group or family holiday. Superb views over the North of the island.
We had a fabulous time at this beautiful villa
Everything was just as described, staff was excellent and very attentive w/great dinner preps and suggestions for restaurants
We had a wonderful holiday - thank you
Great relaxing place - our family of six did not want to leave at the end of our 11 day stay.
The villa is perfect for family get away, great pool, great views, great hospitality - We were well looked from start to finish of our stay.
The location has great views from the pool deck, and layout of villa really worked well for our family. Daily breakfast was great prepared to suit your schedule.
Also having driver Mr Moo available to call and shuttle us around took the stress out of planning our daily trips out around Koh Samui.
Evans Family from Hong Kong
We have spent almost a week in this villa and we could have stayed much longer. We really enjoyed the comfort and the exquisite charm of the house and the pool.
We lived in luxury with a kind and helpful staff (Sao and Ay) responding to all our needs and have had excellent communication with the owner M. Strong.
Some things are good to know prior to renting the house: it is remote and you will definitely need a car (or the services of M. Moo, the taxi driver M. Strong recommended, if you don't plan to move that much). The magnificent Mae Nam beach is only 10 minutes drive from the villa; it was our favorite.
We recommend this quiet, well decorated, house for a family, but not with very yound children as the swimming pool is not adapted to the youngest children.
