My girlfriend and I arrived at Villa Emerald in mid May after staying a week at a Resort in Lamai. Nothing can explain the feeling I had walking into this villa. The view was breath taking, the layout was amazing, the decor was beautiful and David never hesitated once to help with the few questions we had. We also stayed the Villa Amber which was just as stunning minus the view. However, we did enjoy our time more at villa Amber because it was just off a main road and the pool was much larger. In a month we saw saw all most everything on the island by utilizing the scooter which was a great deal.
If you're looking for a great holiday of sightseeing and adventure but still require a a peaceful tranquil sanctuary at night, I would highly recommend these two rentals.
What a gorgeous piece of heaven this villa is!! Walking through the doors took our breath away - of course the magic started when we were greeted so warmly at the airport by a lovely Thai local driver sent to meet us who entertained us all the way to the villa!! There we were shown through by the beautiful Pung and owner David and reassured that if there were any issues they could be contacted at any time. The pictures on the website are gorgeous but didn't do this place justice - being there was amazing and the holiday we had saved for a year to go on was made complete!! Despite the villa being close to two others on the lot we didn't hear a peep; just the beautiful breeze through the trees and the sound of the ocean below. Clean, open, spacious and beautifully furnished we felt like royalty in our own little palace!! We stayed for 10 nights and the cleaners came through every few days to freshen up and they always did a wonderful job. Throughout the booking process David was amazing, honest and so helpful providing us with advice about Koh Samui when needed and rushing to our aid when we had a minor car mishap making us feel safe and reassured at all times. We are already planning another trip with some extra friends but next time it's just us we will definitely be heading back to our little slice of paradise, Villa Emerald. 100% happy, thanks David and the team at Peaceful Villas.
The Villa Emerald is spectacular, as advertised the views across the bay from every room to wake up in the morning open the curtains and look out to see is spectacular. All the rooms are big a fantastic bathroom with a marble double bath separate shower and his and hers sinks.
The kitchen is open plan built into granite boulders with fridge freezer and all necessary cooking equipment.
Down stairs you have a superb lounge looking out to the bay and if you really need a tv theres one with satellite channels. The pool is big enough to cool of in and the Jacuzzi to sit and sip bubbly while looking at the sea view. I could go on about the view and the facilities but David the owner has every thing in place with his web site.
The surrounding area is very quiet at night my wife and I slept very well no disturbances from other villa's . Some nice walks along an empty beach just the odd local looking for clams when the tide goes out.
Surrounding area has plenty of good restaurants and not to expensive.
We hired a vehicle to get us around the island and to explore some other beaches, you also need a vehicle to get up to the villa as its quite high up.
David and his staff are very helpful and always at the end of a phone David very knowledgable with regard to dinning out he is a man who likes his food. Villa cleaned every third day which is good clean towels and bedding changed
