“Great accommodation provided by a great couple.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed with our two teenage daughters (16 & 19) at the Penthouse in Koh Tao Star villa two nights 7-9 August 2013. Spotless, spacious accommodation with a beautiful view. Alan and Heidi are lovely hosts and are able to combine efficiency with informality. Nothing was too much trouble and they work hard to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible.

“Our Second Stay at Star Villa was just as perfect as the first!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We returned to Koh Tao and Star Villa for a second time and loved it just as much as the first. Whilst this time was an entirely different holiday to our first stay, our honeymoon, this time we travelled with our toddler!!

Returning to Heidi and Alan's accommodation was like returning to see friends. Heidi and Alan are never far away should you need anything, they are so generous with their time to ensure everything is as you like it, it really is their wish that you have the best holiday on Koh Tao.

Star Villa does not usually allow children under 10 I think it was but made an exception for our 17 month old. The accommodation as described by Heidi and Alan isn't toddler friendly but they did all they could to make it that way and Harley certainly had fun charging around the balcony after their dogs!

This place is a little piece of paradise on Koh Tao, close enough to all amenities on the back of a bike (unless you are fit, getting down the hill is steep but easy, coming back up requires a degree of fitness). We feel that this only adds to the charm of Star Villa, set in stunning surroundings full of trees and looking out on to the beautiful ocean.

Our favourite time of day was when we'd put our baby to bed and we got to relax on the beautiful balcony with a G and T watching the amazing sunsets!

We cannot recommend Star Villa enough, to us there are no negatives. Heidi and Alan will be about as little or as much as you would like, you will love the seclusion of this place and whilst there isn't a pool, the ocean with so many beaches to chose from is just crying out to be explored.

We had actually booked a second apartment as we wanted to have half the holiday on lower ground purely with our toddler in mind. On seeing this other accommodation complete with pool we decided immediately to extend our stay at Star Villa despite having to pay for both. We felt that the view from the balcony at Star Villa couldn't be competed with!

Thank you again Heidi and Alan for your beautifully thought out 'Star Villa' and for your kindness and generosity in both our stays, we hope to see you again, this time without our toddler!!!

Alan and Heidi greeted us like friends when we arrived on Koh Tao to celebrate the first birthday of our granddaughter. Knowing the baby would be visiting us a lot did not phase the owners and they were glad to make the place baby-safe for the duration of our stay. They drove us up and down the hill if we required it but left us to our own devices when we indicated that the exercise would do us good. The hill that the villa is perched on the side of so artfully provides beautiful views, cooling breezes and your very own step aerobics classes if you should so desire, but not so steep that we pensioners couldn't enjoy a yomp. The apartment was spacious, well-equipped, practical and homely. Alan and Heidi make life easy by providing a mobile to keep in touch with them with and all the drinks we could wish in the fridge so that we had no need to spend our valuable time shopping. When the sun went down we were glad to catch up on all the movies we'd missed lately from Alan's huge selection then crawl into the comfortable bed to be to lulled to sleep by the music of the jungle. Koh Tao Star Villa was an oasis of comfort and quiet on the bustling, vibrant island of Koh Tao. We long to go back there.
