Holiday Rental House
In Paradis Villa you get your own villa by the beach with hotel service. C4 is one of 30 villas in a privately owned resort right at the Thung Tuek beach at the pristine west coast of Koh Kho Khao. The houses are owned by ordinary people who have invested in a holiday home, and the resort is run by a company owned by the house owners. The owners use the houses themselves on a regular basis, and this has created a cozy and familiar atmosphere where you quickly get acquainted with the other visitors, the staff and some of the house owners; and people look after each others children. The resort is closed in the periods 1 May to 15 June and 1 August to 30 September.

C4 is one of 30 villas in a privately owned resort right at the Thung Tuek beach at the pristine west coast of Koh Kho Khao. The houses are owned by ordinary people who have invested in a holiday home, and the resort is run by a company owned by the house owners. The owners use the houses themselves on a regular basis, and this has created a cozy and familiar atmosphere where you quickly get acquainted with the other visitors, the staff and some of the house owners; and people look after each others children. The resort is closed in the periods 1 May to 15 June and 1 August to 30 September. Per resort policy we do not accept bookings from people from Russia or China unless we can verify their references (due to earlier experiences). C4 is favorably situated about 60 m from the restaurant and pool area, far enough to be conveniantly close but not bothered by any noise. The villas have about 110 m2 covered area, with 3 double-bed bed rooms suitable for 6 guests. The master bed room has en-suite bath-room. In addition there is an identical shared bath-room. Baby cots can be provided if this is needed. All bedrooms and the main room have a ceiling fan plus air condition. The C and B row offers a conveniant shade as well as rain protection on either the roofed front or back terrace as the main terrace is located on the north side of the villas and the backside terrace is located on the south side. This makes the terraces ideal for breakfast or a private meal regardless of the weather and time of day. It is also a conveniant place to stay in the shade should you have to work a bit in your 'home' office. In addition C4 has a roofed terrace on the back side with full privacy and a nice view to the forest. Here you can get shade most of the day. They are furnished with a small kitchen, allowing for cooking and private meals. The resort can provide grocery upon order at the restaurant, or meals delivered to the villa if you prefer to eat in privacy. COMFORTABLE BEDS All 3 bedrooms have comfortable king size beds, with matresses that are soft and comfortable to a standard you normally only find at expensive hotels in this part of the world. AIR CONDITIONING All rooms have a separate A/C unit and ceiling fan. SMART TV AND WIFI The villa has a 40' Smart LED Samsung TV installed and connected to the independent Wi-Fi. A Google Chromecast unit and HDMI cable allows for connecting your provate device to the TV. A netflix account is available for you to use. EATING Most guests prefer the restaurant on the resort which is known to have the best food on the island and is situated only 30m from the beach. The prices for food and drinks are amongst the lowest you will find in this area. Excellent Thai food is served here and is the main focus, but also European food and children's menu is available. The main pool is located next to the restaurant, allowing the children to play and swim while being watched by the adults from the restaurant. There are also a children's pool located between row A and B. The resort has a garden connecting the pool and restaurant area with the beach in a discrete manner without obstructing the sea view. A sand volley ball court and mini-golf track is integrated adjacent to the beach area. Pine trees provide a welcome shade in the beach area. In the garden you will also find table-tennis. A small beach bar offers refreshments of many kinds to the guests who enjoy the sun and the beach through the day at favorable prices. The location is ideal to enjoy a drink whilst watching the sunset over the Mandanan sea, and the observant guest can sometimes see dolphins playing at sunset. The beach itself offers very shallow water and is sheltered by nearby reefs and the island to the north, so the waves are generally never tall and no strong currents occur. This makes it ideal for children and for swimming in general. In the winter season jelly-fish is rarely observed, making it safe and comfortable. The beach is about 18 km long, and is ideal for long or short walks or running. Most of the time this will be in full privacy, as the area is not very developed. So after about half an hour walk north bound you will find yourself alone most of the time. In the morning before about 9 a.m. the beach has shade, making it ideal for those who want to run with comfortable temperature and no need for sun lotion. Those seeking other tourists can walk southward and after half an hour one will get to the majority of the other resorts and hotels on the island. They are situated in a row by the beach. Our guests are welcome to have meals on these resorts and the independent restaurants in the area should so be desired. There are also some independent restaurants within walking distance. In Paradis Villas we offer private massage in the garden area, conveniently and discretely located next to the beach and pool. The resort reception also helps with organizing car, scooter and bike rental as well as guided tours or excursions. KAYAK RENTAL Our guests can rent our two kayaks for a modest fee. These are new in 2014. One sea kayak for one person, and one fishing/river kayak for 2 persons is available at C4. WIND SURF BOARD In C4 we also have a wind surf board. Rental of this can be negotiated for guest who have experience. The villas as per resort policy are included in the hotel standard service at a low fee. This implies beds will be made up, all rooms cleaned, towels replaced and dishes washed, etc. daily. Laundry service is also offered. In Koh Kho Khao, there are no water sports. In the resort there is no disco or night club. So the sound of the waves is only interrupted by the sound of birds or an arbitrary long-tail boat used by the fishermen harvesting the sea in the coastal areas. The location also has a temperature (28 - 32 deg C) that combined with the breeze makes the climate very comfortable to live in. Not too warm, not too cold - just right! Those who enjoy a drink or two in the evening, do so in good company in the beach bar in a discrete manner. So there are no conflicts between adults and families with small children. The party factor is minimal, and compatible with the family factor which is high. Due to the layout of the garden area, noise from playing children does not bother the adults that came here to relax. For those seeking adventures, the proximity to Khao Lak and its multitude of activity and shopping offers allows the possibility of a break from the laid-back atmosphere at Koh Kho Khao. Most companies that offer excursions such as diving will also have a pick-up service from the Nam Kem peer. The resort management will organize transport to Nam Kem for you, so you are in good hands all the time and do not have to be a great navigator. Since many of the guests are house owners, they know the area well and can give good advice on what is nice to do and provides value for the money. One example is diving. The islands to the west of Koh Kho Khao offer some of the best diving locations in the world. A few days of active live-aboard diving is perfect to combine with the lazy days at the resort. Cost is low and everything you need is provided for you. The dive masters are professional, and the safety standard is excellent. You can take the PADI divers certificate on-board or onshore. Our guests, in particular the ones with children, find this place unique and hard to find elsewhere. The feeling of safety and comfort combined with the experience of great nature, the piece and quite, the great climate - it makes you want to stay! And they tend to come back. So plan for a long vacation here. It is sad to leave too soon... The comfort is that you can come back and rent the same vila again. It will soon feel like a second home. It has turned out that our older children, the teenagers, also has taken the liking of the campus. The fact that there is WI-FI coverage on campus, even at the beach aids a lot to this... The teenagers can hang out with each other and make new friends, surf as much as they want on the internet, spend as much time as they feel like with their family, and for them it is like an all-inclusive experience on a scenic location. The parents feel they are safe and do not have to watch them, so the teenagers get a sense of freedom while being safe. A certain winner! We take pride in continuous improvement. So your feedback to us and the income we get will be used to improve the standard to make it an even better experience next time. More

About the neighbourhood
Just a five minute boat ride from the Takua Pa area of Phang Nga province (Nam Kem peer), the relatively large island of Ko Kho Khao (pronounced kaw koe cow) doe look very different from the mainland. However, for those looking for an escape thats not as remote as nearby Ko Phra Thong but not as busy as Khao Lak or Phuket, Kho Khao is worth a visit. The islands long golden beaches are the main draw, and aesthetically these are similar to the beaches of the Khao Lak area further south. The waters are slightly murky due to silt and lack the pristine tropical turquoise color found elsewhere, but the beaches still make for great swimming and long, romantic sunset walks.While the island still feels like something of a secret place, more resorts are gradually popping up, and Kho Khao is increasi...
