We stayed in a Garden Villa for 9 nights in Feb 2015 and loved it. The property is quiet and secluded but just a 5 minute walk from Chalok and close to our favourite to lots of eating places. The pool is beautiful and the villas have everything you need to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Would stay again... More

Woodlawn really has to be your only option when booking Koh Tao! English owned (turns out by an old school friend) but Michelle and Luke were great. We stayed in Garden Villa 1 and they have just been fully refurbished, travelling in a couple, they are all we could have wished for. Worth getting a moped to explore the island... More

This villa is owned by a very nice couple. Nevertheless, the owners refuse to provide blankets for the beds (yes, blankets. you read this right), they rent villas located up a steep dirt road and do so in a location that is convenient to virtually nothing on the island. In addition, the ultra-small rooms have issues with insects, wifi and... More

Visited Thailand in December and took a week down on the islands where we stayed at Woodlawn Villas, which was probably one of the best stays I have had in many years. It is such a cool, quaint place and the lovely couple that own it are so helpful. The swimming pool is brilliant, one afternoon we had it all... More

Pros: - Woodlawn villas offer you a relaxed "resort" for a reasonable price (comparing to the other hotel prices on the island). - We stayed there in september, and I think we were the only guests, so we had the pool for us and it was very quiet. -What I really can recommend is the snorkel trip with Roland. We... More

We went on a 4 week holiday around Thailand and Woodlawn Villas was by far the best place we stayed at. The tranquility of the whole Woodlawn grounds was perfect, it feels like you are in the middle of the jungle, away from all the noise and chaos of the busier parts of the island. The beautiful pool was definitely... More

If you would like to cater for yourself but still have access to a swimming pool, hot showers and extremely good service, this place is for you! We felt so welcome staying here just under one week. Wonderful and interesting people! Accommodation great.

So. My petit-amie and me booked this nice place for 3 nights. And to be honest, it was absolutely great. The owners are from the UK i think and they managed us a taxi from the port to get there. Quite expensive, but so it is. I suggest to take a scooter. Well, the pocket of Woodlawnland is pretty nice... More
