Ko Samui, Surat Thani Province
The Villa of Light was our home for 3 years. we now offer it for rent during 2017.

I don't want to give the usual platitudes of 'best villa on the beach' etc. We simply rely upon our reviews, see below (Trip Advisor).

The vast majority of “beachside villas” are misnomers – they are not in fact located beachside. The Villa of Light, finished 5 years ago, and designed by Samui's premier architect, M-Systems, is situated literally on the superb award-winning Maenam beach in northern Samui.

This is our second stay at the villa of light in just over 2 years, and as last time did not disappoint. The villa is superbly positioned so you are near everything you want but also fantastically tranquil. Walking street on Thursdays is an absolute must, just how you would expect a Thai street market to be, food,food,and more food,...

There is no doubt Villa Maenam is well situated on the beach and has a nice pool. But I am sorry to say our experience was extremely disappointing. We had no water for most of the first two days of our stay. The water briefly returned on the first day after workmen came to refill the tank, but was gone...

Over the past week or so, 2 poor reviews have appeared. This is the second of them, in time of publishing, from a guest named Mr. Simon D and his party, who stayed with us from 6th February 2016 to 13th February 2016.
