“Great stay at this wonderful place!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We booked a villa 6 month in advance directly on their homepage. We gave Bex and Guy our arriving time by boat and they greeted us at the pier with some cold water.

After a short ride we arrived at the Place. Unbelievable - the view!!!!

We had Villa Nr.1 - it is very private! We booked 3 nights - so we got a basket with some items ( milk, cornflakes, pasta, tomato sauce, tuna in a can, butter, jam, bread, eggs, chips). The kitchen is full equipt - so we made every morning a nice breakfast by our one. tee and coffee ist there too. The fridge is filled with wine, beer and softdrinks. The prices are ok for that!

We enjoyed every evening the sunset in our villa with a cold glas of wine! It was so : WOW!!!!!!

Guy, Bex and Franzi (she speaks german) are so nice and helpful. For example: my husband had a bad stomage, they brought more tee and electrolyte packs for him.

We enjoyed the Restaurants Barracuda and The Gallery - both are really good. We also enjoyed their recommanded Spa.

We didn`t decide to rent a motorbike because of all the negative commands here on tripadvisor. So we walked one or two times a day down and up to the villa. i would lie if i say it is nothing to walk up. It is a kind of a short training - and you can definitly manage it.If you are in a bad condition - hm, it´s hard and you take better an expensive transportation to go back. Just one tip: take the flashlight with you in the eventing. It ´s necesarry!

We definitly recommend this great place - THE PLACE!
You will find the best view ever - just enjoy it!

Thanks to Franzi !!!!!

We stayed in villa #2 for 8 nights in early February. What a great place! What strikes you the most about 'The Place' is the incredible service you get from the moment you step on the island to the moment you step off the island (as well as the very helpful information from Guy prior to our arrival via email). Bex and Franzi (and Mr Bear) were exceptional! They really did go the extra mile!

The place is only a short stroll down the hill to the main town, but I'd suggest if you just want to relax, stay at the Place during the day and only pop into the town for dinner (and a massage) as everything you need is in your villa (although a Nespresso machine for each villa could be a great investment for the future perhaps?)

All in all, we loved our time at 'the place'!

We stayed at The Place (No 4) for five nights. We can only confirm all the other reviews - this is a very special place. Guy, Bex, Franzi and Mr Bear could not have been more helpful. Totally private, quiet, beautifully put together you get the best of both worlds - all the amenities (restuarants / bars / boat trips / shops et) are a short walk away but you can retreat to your own private sanctuary whenever you just need to chill out. We would have loved to have stayed for a bit longer.

Room Tip: They are all good!

When were planning this trip I had The Place on my radar....and while I was having trouble deciding I read a review where someone said, " Just Book It!" ...I did and we want to thank that person. We had a great experience there from before we arrived until well after our departure and every moment in between. Bex, Franzi, Guy and The Place are nothing short of awesome. They took amazing care of us. They are part host, part concierge, part tour guide...and part mindreaders....Kudos to them for being so good at what they do and enjoying it. Such a pleasure to have been there and had that experience.....keep in mind that I love to be on the water and being up in the hills was not my first choice but the views are fantastic and the walk or ride up and down to town is part of the experience. Mr Bear was always available at a moments notice to take us anywhere we wanted to go....and having the cell phone they provide made it so we could easily coordinate a ride back. That was my only concern and really it wasn't an issue at all.....so really you're only concern in whether or not to book it is whether or not there's availability....so get on it.

We stayed here after reading other reviews and entirely agree. Absolutely perfect! Really friendly hosts, special optional treats like a chef that comes and cooks a romantic dinner, and a beautiful villa with plunge pool.

An unforgettable stay at The Place. We had breathtaking view with a very private balcony where you can watch the sunset right infront of you. The balconies get good amount of sun.
The villa is well thought out with lovely eco bathrooms, filtered drinking water from the tap and really comfortable bed. Guy, Bex and Franzi are friendly and down the earth and will try to meet any extra demands, they even managed to get me a pillow to my specification and when we caught fish on a fishing trip they booked a restaurant to cook the fish and even took the fish to the restaurant for us!
They give you a mobile phone so you are not bothered unnecessarily - great for honeymooners :) If you want the villa cleaned or change of sheets you just text/call them.
It's a great location, lovely views to the sea, away from the sairee resort so its peaceful and quiet at night but only a 10minute walk into Sairee, there is a short steep hill to get to The Place but it's a matter of minutes and perfectly manageable.
I would definately stay here if I return to Koh Tao, we stayed at a few different resorts during our honeymoon and this resort was the best value and our favourite. We were sad to leave.

We have just returned from staying at The Place and I can't recommend it enough! Guy, Bex and Franzi were extremely helpful but not intrusive, the views from the villa are breathtaking and the most fantastic place to relax and re-charge your batteries...

Definitely a place I would re-visit!!!
