“Lovely Villa in private hillside setting with fabulous views and pool.”

my husband and I spent a week at the villa together with our friends from Italy. The villa is near new and is very lovely. It has a large combined kithen/dining/living roomand a gorgeous outdoor dining area which is poolside. The pool is spectacular and has lovely coloured lighting. Our rental came with the use of a scooter which is needed as the villa is located off the main road at the end of a long drive that is a bit of a challenge for the inexperienced, so take it slow! We loved it, the ambiance and the privacy in particular. The owner Matthew lives nearby so is handy and very friendly. There is a tesco lotus (supermarket) about a 10 minute scooter ride away so you can stock up for brerakfast etc. We loved our pool we did not bother with the beach, but we did have unusually overcast weather, so we took advantage of the sun at our pool.
There arre lots of great restaurants nearby. We especially loved one that is a left turn on to the main road and is located on the east side about 500metres north. Wee dont know the name as it is written in Thai, the sig is cracked and the tables are located in those cute luttle bamboo huts. The food was cheap and the best Thai we had on the island!!!
My only issue is that electricity is an extra cost and at 5Baht per unit - ended up being an extra 650 baht for the week so factor that in to your budget. I thought it was still overall very reasonably priced for the quality (and newness) of the villa!!
Also, I prefer a softer mattress, these are very firm.
It was a great place to stay with friends and would also be great for a family (just watch your kids near the pool - no fences!)

disappointed to get my 1st 4 stars here...however the points are all valid...
1)the drive up to the villa has a couple of steepish sections but its nowhere near as steep as some roads around here. Don't worry.
2)
Palaeng is the name of the restaurant near Chaweng Beach Road (turn left and 300m on rhs)...great and cheap and good for takeaway too (approx 90b per head).
3) Electricity cost is stated in the description. I dont make a profit, i charge near government rate which is small change on a holiday budget (average 70b (2USD) per day. This is done principally to prevent people leaving the a/c on and going out. Most villas make a charge for electric.
4) Mattress hard - i think this is personal preference - most people like them
5) Pool no fences - its quite safe. There is thick tough safety glass all around the terrace and the infinity pool edge has a water trap behind to catch lilos etc that float over. Most pools are designed the same way. Its one of those things that looks beautiful but unsafe but in practice it really is safe because when in the pool you have the pool wall around you. The pool is 1.4-1.6m - not deep.

“Great villa at top location”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed in the villa for one week and had a great time.
The house has a perfect location! It's only a 5 minutes motorbike ride away from the main road but feels miles away from noisy mass tourism. Its very quite and green around the house and the view is superb. On the other hand it only takes 10 minutes to Chaweng or 15 minutes to Lamai, the two main party-towns on the island.
The villa has 2 very nice bedrooms with their own ensuite, a modern “European” kitchen and a huge living room but to be honest we spent most of your time in the great outdoor pool area. The outdoor area with infinity pool, deck chairs and ocean view is probably the best place on Koh Samui to have a cold beer both at day and night.
Matt and his girlfriend were great hosts. They organised scooters, gave great advice on where to eat and what to see and introduced us to the night life on Koh Samui.
I definitely plan on coming back to this great place and recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful vacation on Koh Samui.
