I just stayed at Monkey Flower with five people for four nights, and i have to say it's one of the best forms of accommodation I've ever stayed in. What makes Monkey Flower special, besides the great design of the villas and the amazing views, is the attention Lincoln and especially Steve give to you. Steve, the driver, can and will drive you anywhere on the island, basically any time day or night, which is fantastic, especially when you consider that the villa is tucked away up a pretty steep hill.
Also, he's great a recommending the best methods for going about activities like snorkeling or taking a boat trip around the island, which is essential in a small tourist destination like this, because a lot of people are out there to rip you off.
We stayed in the lower villa, and while it's the lower-end villa, it's amazing for the price. The place is incredibly spacious, and it fit five of us easily, even though it's meant for two. Hot water all the time, fantastic views, far enough from town to be secluded, but a 3-4 minute walk to the main beach. Another really cool thing is how many musical instruments are around the villa, especially in the upper one. They've got an electric piano, guitars and a drum kit available in the upper villa for the guests!
Overall, Monkey Flower is simply the place you need to stay if you go to Koh Tao. It makes you feel like you're staying in a five star resort, but with the seclusion and relaxed, island atmosphere you want on a vacation like this. Would definitely stay again if I returned to Koh Tao!
