“Perfect for a Big Group of Friends”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I have stayed in a lot of places in a lot of different countries, but this place really is special. The house is huge- enough room for 4 families, each with two young children, not too feel squashed. The pool, the view, the outdoor seating areas are beautiful. Tao and his wife looked after us so well, yet are not at all imposing. I really cannot fault this place. Thank you so much! Now to start saving to visit again...

“Hope to go back soon!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Beautiful location, absolutely amazing! Villa Velks is one of the best places I have stayed at. Staffs made us feel at home and almost like family. The view from all of the room was breathtaking and so peaceful. Our driver, Tao, took us everywhere possible and made us feel very special. Housekeeper, Pre, provided us authentic Thai food and gave us mini cooking class which gave all of us such a unforgettable memory! Can't wait to go back again...

“The perfect Family Trip”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the minute you are picked up until you leave, you really feel like you you are on holidays. The accomodation is perfect for large groups / families with kids traveling, as they have everything you need for yound kids to teenagers. Everyone can have there own space or spend time together. The housekeepers know what you want and help out as much as you need and then leave you to yourselves. The location, accomodation, views, peace and quite coupled with the the great family who care for you, its a truely one of kind exeripence.

“Superb”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Villa Velks is a large house, with endless bedrooms but also felt intimate with just the two of us staying there. In my experience what seemed unique was the positioning of the sun deck and pool - it had sun from early mid morning until awesome sunsets, quite rare.

The house is serviced by the most sweetest Thai family who live onsite in separate accommodation out of the way but always available when asked. Breakfast would always be ready for us in the fridge, never ever heard this being prepared - whatever other mess we made would be cleared away as arranged. This is the same for any other cooking we did or decided to ask them to make ( yummy thai food - happy to show us how they made so free cooking lessons !) We generally had most lunches in as the pool and deck was just too hard to leave

Upon arrival at the airport we were picked up by their driver and quickly ferried to the villa - The driver was available to us to take us where ever we wanted for the entire stay. They gave us a local thai mobile to call when we wanted picking up and this all happened efficiently - we used this for dinners out, beach visits and shopping trips. was very happy with the guys driving skills,as this can be a problem, but felt 100% safe

In this large house there is a games/pool room which we used in the evenings with a few drinks, and there was lots and lots of DVD's to choose from on the odd occasion stuck for something to do.

The location is lovely, but not on top of the party hot spots - you do need to take advantage of the transport service to go out, walking is not really practical, even though I enjoyed the walk up and down the hill to the the well stocked mini mart some may not. I did get the driver to buzz me down in the evening for extra beers. crisps etc when we run out - took two mins so well handy. All other provisions can be obtained for you by arrangement with the staff and at supermarket prices, no hotel rip offs here !!

Will be going back.

“fabulous stay - this is an amazing villa and location”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

Tucked away high in the hills overlooking the western coastline of Koh Samui, this villa was nothing short of spectacular. New, clean, well appointed and with the never-ending help and hospitality of the on-site property manager couple, nothing was ever a problem. Having met our friends at the airport, we spent an incredible week sunning and swimming by the pool, and sightseeing with our ever-enthusiastic driver on hand at all times - sheer luxury! We thought the location was superb - away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, shops, noise and traffic - total relaxation with everything you could want at the villa yet a short drive to the other things we wanted to do and places we wanted to see. This place is a definite keeper and we would stay there again without hesitation. Honest!
