“Nice Views, Apartments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

I recently booked two apartments, originally two studio apartments. Upon arrival, we found that the studios are really small hotel rooms and we were able to upgrade to a two bedroom. The apartment offered a comfortable space to explore the island.

The pool was lovely and relaxing. Bear in mind that scuba groups use it in the morning. The internet was intermittent. The air conditioning in the two bedroom really only cools the bedrooms and we finally found that leaving the apartment open to the breezes to be the best option.

Great suggestions by the hosts for Aow Leuk Bay and the apartment manager also arranged for a long boat for the day.

The location of the apartments is a bit out of town, and up a climb, and quite a hike without transportation. Its a lovely walk in cool weather, Im sure. However, our visit never experienced anything but heat and humidity. Getting into town is a challenge without either a motorbike (heed the cautions--my son was run off the road by a taxi/truck and I was out $250!!!) or the contact information for a taxi.

Room Tip: My suggestion is Apartment 1 as first choice for the best view, then 2, and decreasing from there...

We stayed there one week, we couldn't imagine better ! A little bit expensive for two backpackers but it was definitely worth it. A little place above the pier, not so far from Sairee Beach if you have a motorbike and so much quiet. Nice beach down-town and lovely city centre. The apartment are clean, modern and very pleasant to live (balcony with great view). If you want to rest, it's kind of paradise.
The family staff are welcoming, helpful and very flexible !! We'll come back for sure. Thank you Swedish lovely family :)

I cannot recommend this place enough. We ended up staying for 3 months!! The apartments are spotlessly clean and they even put drinks in the fridge ready for your arrival which is a lovely touch. The bathrooms are modern and the decor perfect. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. Many a night we just drunk a cold beer and starred out to sea. Picture perfect. You would not get this view from many places in Koh Tao! The host family were a pleasure to meet and would go out of their way to help you whenever they could. Order taxi, help with scooter rental, the list was endless. The infinity pool is such a treat with that view yet again out to the beach and sea. The location is great. Walking distance to bars, shops and restaurants but not noisy like places could be in sairee. We intend on coming back next year and might just not leave!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Tony, Verica, Julia and Loppan.

Room Tip: Top floor if you can get it just for the best view but all rooms are great!
