Alan and Heidi's place is beautiful. Watching the sun set over the beach from our balcony every evening was a highlight and the accommodation itself was very comfortable and clean. One thing to bear in mind is that the accommodation is up a very steep hill, but still perfectly walkable and the free taxi service Alan and Heidi provide does... More

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

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
