After much research, we selected Baan Pimalai Villa for a holiday with our Daughter,Son in law and their 3 young children.The house more than lived up to our expectations with inside decor, facillities and especially the house pool all superb. We really appreciated the informative website, and emails from the owner, also the reviews of previous guests. Bang Por beach whilst coarser sand than many Australian beaches, was clean, quiet and beautiful! ( No hawkers!) There are great beach front resturants nearby, and our grand children coped well with the Thai food, - we ordered appropriately.
Traffic on nearby main road is hardly audible once inside the house. Bottled water and basic food provisions are available within 1km of the property, with major food markets approx 7-10kms.The welcome basket of fruit and drinks was much appreciated.
Our only regret,- not staying longer!
We plan to return!

Having looked at every property and resort on the island we decided on this house. We traveled with our 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old children. The property was perfect. The pools were awesome. Having the choice of 2 pools kept the days interesting. The beach was nice and quiet but the sand is coarse and the water is rocky. When the tide is high there are some lagoons you can swim in and you can also kayak on the provided kayaks. We were always happy to have a day out and go to another beach like Chewang for the nice white sand and swimming.
Most things are within within walking distance (if you don't have small children). We used the local buses, taxis and hired a car for the 2 weeks we were there. The property is on the main road but we didn't notice the traffic that much and the air conditioner blocks out any noise at night. If you want quiet, a walk along the beach is all you need.
There are many local restaurants which you can walk to on the beach. They have great food, great prices and some do western food. We bought food for our kids at the supermarkets (they weren't thrilled with Thai food) and we would often just order from the restaurant over the road and he would deliver. His food was awesome and cheap.
The staff are friendly and always accessible. We had a few power cuts (which is be expected when you see the power lines on the island) and the staff were always on hand with candles and checking we were ok.
We loved having the floor swept everyday and having the linen changed twice a week. There is a hard drive with movies for the adults and children which was great.
Dealing with Kay who you book with was a pleasure. We are saving to come back in 2015 :)

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you had such a wonderful holiday. The food locally is great and the restaurant closest to the villa does a great non spicy fried rice for kids and, for some reason, excellent chips. The beach is a true "Robinson Crusoe" beach which is really quiet. The sand is good for making sand castles and while there are a few rocks in the sea, it's sandy a few metres out, where the water is still shallow. We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

We just returned after a 3 night stay in Baan Pimalai. It was well taken care of, spacious, and provided all the necessary facilites to make our holiday comfortable. The pool was really cosy, and our kids spent hours splashing around. The fact that the bungalow is on the beach is a plus point for anyone looking for a beach getaway. We were also pleasantly surprised to find our fridge stocked with bread, milk, cold drinks and even beer upon arrival. The large fruit basket was also appreciated. All in all, we would highly recommend Baan Pimalai for families as well as those who would like to stay in a place with a personal touch (like home), by the beach!

Having not visited Thailand before we booked Baan Pimalai on Koh samui with some trepidation .
Kay made the process so easy and helped us with transfers, car booking etc etc.
We arrived on the evening of the 10th Feb , we were immediately greeted by Kam the house keeper who made us all feel very much at home.
We were blown away by the villa, the bedrooms are all amazing , lovely shower rooms , dressing rooms , air con
The living area and kitchen are large and very well equiped with
lots of doors leading onto the patio , pool area and lovely gardens
We loved the little pool , perfect to cool down at anytime.
The maids visited us daily to clean the kitchen and living area and ever 3 days to change the bedding etc, they were excellent and very friendly.
The location of the villa could not be better. Although it is just off the main road , this does not cause a problem. The beach is just 30 mtrs down the path .
Having visited most of the beaches on the island we came to the conclusion that Bang po (por) our beach as we called it ,was the best.
It has all you need in the way of bars and resturants , but not to busy. It was like paridise.
Mae nam and the fishermans village towns are just a 15 min car ride, these are much busier but well worth a visit. The night markets at both the towns are a must.thur and fri night.
Nearly forgot to mention how much we loved the weather,
Once again Kay thank you so much for the best holiday ever , we really hope to return soon.

“The Right Choice!”
Reviewed 26 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have just returned from 10 days in Koh Samui at the Baan Pimalai Villa and are already wishing we were still there!

Going to the Koh Samui for the first time we really had no idea of where to stay and had many options to consider. Thankfully we chose the right one. Kay, the owner, is extremely helpful and making the booking and payment was very easily done. The house is "brand new" and has many unique features, such as the "outdoor shower" and "private swimming pool" is very well equipped and there is a much appreciated "welcome pack" on arrival.

The beach is quite literally 30 metres away and you can have some very invigorating early morning or sunset walks for a mile or two in either direction. Beautiful sunsets!
.
Ms Sao, who is the local manager was always on hand to assist with recommendations, as well as taxi and car bookings. We rented a car for 5 days in the middle of our stay, aside from that we used "Mrs Jin" and her very reliable taxi service.

There are several restaurants in either direction, but by far the best was a little Thai/German restaurant 300 metres to the left as you face the main road. The name escapes me but the walk is really worth it. The Owner cooks either Thai or western and both are excellent. There is a pink painted gift shop next door so you can not miss it.

Also worth a visit is the Zen art gallery, which is in the same direction as the restaurant and where "Mandala" the artist will be sure to entertain you.

We toured the island by car and decided that we had chosen the right place in the north.
The boat trip to the National Park is a must but be sure to take the VIP option which starts from around THB 3500 per person. There are cheaper ones but you will find yourself with a "Fleet of Speed boats" and absolutely shocking food. The scenery is stunning

Also a must is the Santiburi Golf Course, beautifully maintained and amazing views of the island. A little expensive but check out special rates on Wednesdays.

Finally your vacation would not be complete without a traditional Thai massage....or two....or three....or four! Great value and arranged by Sao in the Villa itself. A great start or end to the day.

All in all a very memorable family vacation and highly recommended.
