“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed July 23, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

I have stayed previously at one of the owners other villas and knew I would be in for a great stay, but this villa absolutley took my breath away. The views from my own private infinity pool across the bay to the Thai National water park are unbelieveable. A 4X4 jeep was provided with the villa and was used to get into town, but only 2 miniutes away we had the beach and restaurants. The villa itself had everything we needed, including a well equipped kitchen and awesome large living room with large screen flat TV, DVD player, internet and satelite TV. The garden even had its own fish pond with turtlles. I can't recommend this villa enough.

Beautiful villa with fully equipped kitchen and reliable internet. The whole place is very well maintained. A lovely garden, stunning pool and amazing sea view makes it a perfect location to relax. David is just great, he picked us up at the airport, whenever we needed something David organised it within no time. Thank you so much!

“Five star! 🌟”
Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016
1
person found this review helpful

If you're looking for a five star holiday with five star service, look no further than holidaying in one of David Smart's gorgeous villas. We returned this year for the second time and occupied villa crystal (last year villa emerald). Both villas were very clean, well equipped and as the name of the website suggests, peaceful! His villas are beautiful with fantastic sea views, and are located on the south of the island, which is very pretty and relaxing. David and his staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. We were greeted at the airport, taken to the villa and given a local mobile phone for the duration of our stay. David also returns you back to the airport, so no need for stress or taxis, all included in his wonderful service. David has lots of local knowledge and good tips for great places to eat. I would highly recommend using David and visiting one of his villas, he is a very genuine guy and you'll have a wonderful holiday. We look forward to revisiting soon.
Jill and Carl

“Its just Fantastic”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

My wife and I returned to Villa Crystal for our holidays this May. this is our second time in this villa. David the owner picked us up from the airport and duly informed us that it was hot and had been for some weeks. As you approach the villa you are at the top of the steps leading down but you just have to stop and take in the fantastic view across the bay to the islands its breathtaking i never got tired at looking at the view all the time we were there.
On arrival Davids assistant Nughn was there to meet us big smiles showed us around the villa some improvements on last year.
The kitchen is well equipped even has a dish washer, the lounge is very large with the addition of a veranda which goes all around so you can sit outside which we did of an evening. There is also a bathroom on this floor.
Down stairs you have the bedroom with en- suit bathroom shower and bath. Air con and fans in bedroom plenty of wardrobe space and dressing table. Outside another seating area with table and chairs. On the same level you have a utility area with washing machine.
Cleaners in every three days to change bedding and towels and clean villa also the pool is cleaned every three days. The pool area has sun beds with parasol and a shower, there's a fish pond with rockery and waterfall feed the fish ever day and the turtles. Gas BBQ just outside the kitchen and table with chairs and wall fan to keep you cool.
The Villa is on a hill so the panoramic views across the bay looking out to the islands is absolutely fantastic when your in the infinity pool cooling of with a cool drink can just look out and take in the views. The pool is quite large so you can have a swim in it and have lilo's to play around with as we did.
David and his staff are always available if you have a problems, and lots of advice and recommendations with regards eating out or booking other attractions.
We hired a car from David for our four week holiday which gives you the freedom to explore and to visit all the good restaurants on the island.
We never get tired of this villa and the views across the bay and its so quiet up there on the hill. The nice thing about the villa is the freedom to do what you like when you like.
David thanks for a wounder full holiday again and will definitely return.

“Simply wonderful”
Reviewed January 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed in Villa Crystal for nearly two weeks. The views are simply magical - it is hard to tear yourself away from the villa and see the sights of South Samui as the view is unrivalled. Dave is extremely helpful and very knowledgeable and takes great pride in his villas and ensuring his guests are happy. His assistant Neeung is very friendly and helpful too and they pull out all the stops to give you a great holiday. This is a quiet part of Samui, and hiring a car is recommended - not least for the steep hill which leads to the hypnotic view. There are lovely places to eat at the bottom of the hill, and massages at the local salon, opposite Barracuda restaurant are highly recommended. A wonderful vacation - highly, highly recommended. We will never forget that view and the wonderful sunsets every evening.

“A little bit of paradise in the south of Koh Samui”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

My wife and I are in our mid 50's and like to get away to somewhere in Asia for a week or more each year to relax, enjoy the warmth and experience a bit of luxury.
We have been to Thailand on many occasions before but never to Koh Samui. I found Villa Crystal via the Tripadvisor website and am very glad we did.
The whole experience from the initial booking, subsequent communication, the pick up on Samui, the unit itself and where it is located was a delight. Be aware it is located in Laem Set which is the far south of Samui. It is a long way from any real nightlife etc...There are a number of very good local Thai, family run restaurants ; the best massage you are ever likely to have (Supa Massage) all around the area. The Villa which is beautiful is in a gated community and you will need to hire a car (which David the owner will organise for you) to get around.
