This was my 2nd visit to KTSV, my first was about 4yrs ago....it was equally fab this time! Please refer to my previous review for details, because not much has changed. I found that the island has developed slightly since my last visit, but these developments are all good and haven't detracted from the laidback atmosphere, beautiful scenery and great... More

An outstanding view on one of the most beautiful beaches of the Island and really close to the main center. Slightly hard to reach the villa, but a great pick-up service of the owners makes this negligible.

We stayed at Star Villa for about 10 days in early June 2016. Alan & Heidi met us at the port when we arrived at Koh Tao and we could tell straight away that they were really nice people. They gave us a lift up to the villa which surpassed all expectations. They have really thought of everything to make... More

We stayed 6 nights at Koh Tao Star Villa and it was a perfect stay. Heidi and Alan are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed our holiday in this very private and calm atmosphere so much. We booked an apartment with a wonderful view to the sea. Star Villa is a little bit up the hill; so either you are sportive... More

After two weeks traveling around Thailand we spent three nights at the Koh Tao Star Villa and had a really good first impression because the shuttle service from the ferry to the hotel did work perfectly fine. As we arrived we were confronted with a lot of rules, which was a little weird but not that a problem to us.... More

Hello Zenziz Thank you for taking the time to write this review on TA. I will, however, be contacting TA regarding the flagrant lies and half truths contained in this review. Firstly I would question as to why this review is one star out of five and yet your review on Booking.com is 10 out of 10, when you said... More

Stayed here for a few days with a friend, with plans to do a bunch of scuba diving. Alan and Heidi were great hosts. We were picked up at the ferry and driven up the big hill to their place about 15 minutes away. After reading the reviews - yes, this place is up on a big hilly road. Rides... More

Had a great stay....this place is like a home from home...except the view is obviously way better! Could watch the sunset from our apartment balcony :) Alan and Heidi were great hosts, knew loads about the island and even helped hook up an amazing birthday day and night! Would definitely recommend
