Fantastic location, with unforgettable views. The villa is extremely comfortable, and splendidly equiped. The communable areas, together with the swimming pools are immaculately presented and maintained. My 16-year son and I, particularly enjoyed our outdoor pool table competitions. Neighbouring Bang Por is laid-back and quiet, but with an ample choice of restaurants, adjacent to a beautiful white sandy beach. There is also an extensive variety of water sports nearby
This beautiful property is situated in the northern part of the island, which is also the most quiet. It nests app.1 Km from the coast on a hillside, and the view has to be seen to be believed. The house is well equipped, has all amenities including a well
functioning wi-fi and tv + full kitchen. It has house keeping incl. laundry but no room service, it is strictly self catering. We have stayed there twice, and hope very much to be back next year.
We can definitely recommend this property.
We arrived early evening to be greeted by Somjit, who together with her husband, Nan, manages the resort. She helped us unload our luggage and show us around the house and then Nan drove us down the road to the local 7/11 to get immediate provisions - an early indication of how helpful both would be.
We found the house to be well located - not in the bustle of town but near enough to the main road to be able to get around easily. You definitely need a car or moped (not sure I'd risk a moped myself!) as the road down from the house is very steep and would be hard work climbing back up in the heat.
As stated in the title, the house is really well equipped - there wasn't anything we thought was missing, even including an insulated bag which was useful for the beach. The air conditioning worked really well and was needed - although we managed with the ceiling fans in the day time. Travelling with two boys meant wi-fi was a welcome addition and it was very fast and efficient. The pools were lovely and in fact, most of the time we had them to ourselves!
We travelled around the whole island and visited many beaches. The local beach was not the best one but it certainly wasn't the worst and using sun beds for the price of a drink at a local bar was fab!
There are plenty of restaurants at the bottom of the road to the house and we ate at most of them. They are all good value for money, providing a range of Thai and European food, and with good service. We rarely travelled much further to eat.
The information that John provided before we arrived in Samui was invaluable and really helpful. This was our first visit to Thailand and we will definitely be returning which is a testament to both the high quality of the accommodation and the friendliness of the Thai People.
If you are ready to rent a car it's definitely to right place to choose for the view, the very friendly staff, the swimming pool and of course the apartment itself. This is a very good value for money. Don't book August 2017 as I definitely want's to return again.^_^
