Located right on the beach, overlooking the Five Island and idyllically set amongst towering palms and exotic flowering plants, this is as near to Man Friday's Treasure Island as one can imagine.

This authentic Thai-style house was lovingly created by a Swiss businessman, who spared nothing on creating a home of his dreams. Built in teak, the house was designed with amazing attention to detail, along with a multitude of treasures and artifacts that he collected from his travels around Thailand.

The entrance to this house sets the scene for the rest of this outstanding property. The striking entrance gate and long stone driveway lead down to the main house through a lush private garden that is home to a multitude of tropical plants, trees and flowers.
A green lawn fringes the long swimming pool followed by an arched lily pond entranc...

We stayed at the Five Island house for 7 nights with our family in August. What a joy when we arrived! We were welcomed by Piwi and her husband who made us feel at home straight away. The house is set in a beautiful location with lovely gardens and a pool. The best bit was the most amazing sea views...

What a place! We stayed here for 10 days, and absolutely loved it. The location was very quiet and remote, perfect for our trip. We were two families, getting together for a wedding that took place at the property the 22h of December. The house and it’s location was perfect for this celebration. We had the wedding in the back...

About the neighborhood
So what are these mysterious Five islands that are overlooked from Taling Ngam? Known locally in Thai as Koh Si Koh Ha, meaning Four Islands-Five Islands as one is hidden behind another. They are home to swifts, known for their famous nests, which are the main ingredient in birds’ nest soup. The birds are protected as their nests sell for thousands of US dollars. Sea Gypsies are the only human inhabitants of the Five Islands, their small wooden homes perched on rocky outcrops – much like nests themselves. These gypsies are employed to guard the nests from poachers trying to get their hands on this strangely precious commodity.

Ko Samui Airport (USM) is a private airport originally built by Bangkok Airways, which is still the main operator with services to Ko Samui from mainland Thailand. The airport is additionally served by Thai Airways International. Several ferries connect the island with the mainland, including the car ferry from Don Sak to a pier in the west of the island, south of the main town Nathon. Public buses to all parts of the mainland operate from a small bus station located in the south of Nathon. Songthaews (tuk-tuk style buses) circle the ring road, and private taxis are available throughout the island although these are often criticised for failure to use meters and flagrant overcharging.
