This is the first time I have written a review in trip advisor but I felt our stay in Baan Sawan deserved to be raved about!
We felt that the level of service we received was excellent. We knew in advance that Star, the manageress, wasn't going to be in Koh Samui during our visit however she kept in touch with us on a very regular basis, both in the run up to our holidays, and whilst we were there, giving us helpful tips on what we could do during our vacation. Her husband, Levy, looked after us very well, knowing when to be on hand and knowing when to give us privacy. He even drove after us on his motorbike one day when he realised we were heading in the wrong direction for where we had planned to go!
We felt that the villa was much better equipped than others we had rented in the past, but the thing we liked most about it, in terms of the interior of the house, was that it felt like a home rather than a holiday rental with the owners adding enough personal touches in the decor to make you feel "at home". Anne and Alistair, the owners, also keep in touch with us, making sure everything was okay and also giving us helpful tips on where to eat and places to go.
We knew in advance that the villa was located in the hills and I must say we found this a huge positive. It gave us a peaceful base, one of the most scenic views we have ever had, a wonderful breeze, whilst at the same time access to everything else we needed, i.e. just over 5 minutes drive from the hub bub of Fishermans village and large supermarkets. Strolling out in the morning and surveying the stunning view still brings a huge grin to my face when I think about it.
The pool was a nice size, often rental villa pools can be tucked into a very small space but in Baan Sawan it is one of the nicest features both in terms of size and layout. There is also a large expanse of garden which, in our 5 days, we didn't really fully utilise but it added to the feeling of privacy when you arrive. We wanted to see a bit of the island so we did hire a car and I would recommend this to visitors unless they want to just relax in the villa. All in all we felt it was an excellent place to stay. In fact when we arrived my 12 year old son probably summed up all our feelings by saying "wow why haven't we been here before and when are we coming back!". Thank you, we will recommend it and we will be back.
