We spend 5 great nights in Koh Tao in the most incredible villa we ever stayed in. We had a group of 8 people and we rented the upper and low villa suite. The suite is very large, including the deck area on the 2nd floor, and we were very comfortable with 8 people. Needless to say, the pool is absolutely beautiful as you enjoy the view of the entire Sairee beach and jump off the roof into the pool. But the most incredible part of the villa, is the staff. Steve, the diver, is a great person. So accommodating and friendly. He took us all over the island and recommended places to see. He gave us advise on renting scooters, where to eat, the best places to snorkel, and even offered to get us coffee in the morning. Can't say enough about Steve, he really made our stay in Koh Tao absolutely unforgettable! We did have a little anxiety with the location at the start. The walk down/up to the beach is fairly steep and the villa is a bit secluded, but with a brand new Toyota Hulix and Steve being so friendly, transportation to and from anywhere on the island made the location a positive. Lincoln (owner) is a fascinating and energetic person who made us feel right at home. He and his staff couldn't do enough for us. Just an incredible friendly bunch of people. We looked at some places on the beach, and nothing came close to this villa. We enjoyed being a little secluded rather than on a noisy beach, and with the huge deck and beautiful pool, just lounging the day away is quite easy to do. We really felt like we were living the "rich and famous" lifestyle while we were there. This is a can't miss if you are staying in Koh Tao.

Thai Baht or more one way, and TWICE that amount late at night. If you were considering renting motorbikes, our driver service can also save you from possible extortion by unscrupulous renters, who prey on tourists, and the risks of riding a motorcycle on an island with many dirt roads and difficult riding conditions. For these reasons, our car and driver service is not only convenient, but also an incredible value!
