House was clean and spacious. Location is in a quiet area with a view out over top of trees towards the ocean. We had Jo , the housekeeper , cook us a home made Thai meal which was absolutely delicious! Robert had also arranged for pick up to and from airport which was greatly appreciated. There was also a cold beer waiting in fridge on arrival which was a nice touch. Ammenties and good restaurants were also close by.
We would come back again.
Will stay again,since the location is a little bit far away to to the main road. I was happy in stay there.
I can only echo the positive reviews that other people have given. We've just returned after a fantastic 10 days staying in Tropical Villa. The villa is just as shown in the photographs, with all the comforts of home and beautiful views across the gulf of Thailand. The pool and jacuzzi are wonderful, especially after a hot day sight seeing. The owner had arranged a car for us which was waiting for us when we arrived (at a great discount I should add) and I'd certainly recommend hiring a car if you decide to stay here. The hill up to the villa is steep in parts, but it is walkable if you do decide to walk to the beach restaurants that are close by, but walking into Lamai itself would be too much I'd say, unless your'e super fit and love walking. There are a couple of places to eat not far down the hill within 5 to 10 minutes walk. The views and peaceful location are the rewards for being out of the noise and bustle of Lamai itself. Both the owner Bob and Jo the house keeper were extremely helpful, Jo keeps the place immaculately clean, the bed linen and towels were changed more often than some 4 star hotels I've stayed in, and Jo can do your laundry for you for a small charge, and Bob is always contactable if you have any queries or problems (not that we did).
This was our first trip to Koh Samui and having driven around the island exploring and visiting other places I'm so glad that we chose Lamai and this villa in particular. I'd definitely return and would have no hesitation in recommending this place to others.

Great house, lovely view and fantastic outdoor patio and pool! Khun Jo is a great host and is very accommodating to all your needs and inquiries. We were a group of friends looking for a relaxing weekend to catch up, cook, hang out at the beach, and drink some wine -- all tasks were accomplished! Would definitely recommend your own transportation (car, motorbike) as the villa is up on a hill and about 3.5 km from Lamai beach.
Thanks Bob for a great weekend -- the beer and fruit in the fridge upon arrival was a great touch.
