Holiday Rental House
This modern 2 bedroom 3 bathroom single storey villa with private pool is blessed with breath-taking views of the jungle and sea beyond. Recently completed in May 2013, it sits in a quiet cul-de-sac of 7 houses at the top of a beautiful winding private jungle road, it is only 5-10 mins drive from the centre of Chaweng (the main town with all the attractions) and 2 mins (1.6 km) to the main road, from which the nearest beach (Chaweng) can be accessed (via Fair House Hotel) - the longest and most popular beach. I like your stay to be easy, so i provide :- - Free scooter * (subject to rider competency) - Free airport collection - Free mobile phone The house's main advantage is it's wonderful peaceful views and beautiful emerald coloured pool with built-in waterfall.

Recently completed in May 2013, it sits in a quiet cul-de-sac of 7 houses at the top of a beautiful winding private jungle road, it is only 5-10 mins drive from the centre of Chaweng (the main town with all the attractions) and 2 mins (1.6 km) to the main road, from which the nearest beach (Chaweng) can be accessed (via Fair House Hotel) - the longest and most popular beach. I like your stay to be easy, so i provide :- - Free scooter * (subject to rider competency) - Free airport collection - Free mobile phone The house's main advantage is it's wonderful peaceful views and beautiful emerald coloured pool with built-in waterfall. The house, pool and patio also have coloured lighting so at night its a fantastic place to party or just relax. Just walking into the house the first thing you see are the panoramic superb views and most people are breath-taken. Just read the reviews... - Shade - there is plenty of outside shade on the terrace for dining, - Lighting - the extra high ceiling in the living room and the blue mood lighting in all the rooms gives a further wow factor, - Kitchen - modern fully functional with granite worktops and large island unit - Floors - trendy polished concrete in the lounge & kitchen floors give a contemporary feel whilst keeping the main room cool, there are comfortable wooden floors in the bedrooms and ample storage with walk-in wardrobes, - Showers - are powerful with modern mixer taps Other features include: - A/C in bedrooms and ceiling fans throughout, including outside - Wi-Fi, Wall mounted flat screen TV with 7 speaker surround sound system - Filtered drinking tap (so no more shopping for water) - Stunning glass handrails on the balcony - Built in safe - Infinity edged pool, + waterfall (waterfall under maintenance at present) - Eco friendly features such as rain water capture & water storage, instant hot water heater units and low energy lighting. Electricity is metered and costs a low price of 5 Baht per unit (averages at approx. 80 baht ( 1.50 GBP per day)). We take a reading at check-in and check-out and calculate the difference. Extra cleaning can be arranged. Extra Laundry (ie. clothes) can be collected, or there is a drop-off laundry close by. Care When Staying :- I live close by so can take care of your needs. We help introduce you to the island's amenities to accelerate the start of your holiday eg. advising restaurants, beaches, taxis, things to do etc including Full Moon Parties, tours around island, boat hire, spa etc. Ready to go :- We try to provide most things for you in the villa so when you step onto the island you are ready to relax. This includes, linen / towels (changed weekly), soaps/shampoos, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, crockery, cleaning materials, pool and house cleaning (weekly), and transport such as airport collections, a free scooter and phone. Car Hire (approx. 900 Baht per day) and others services can be arranged in advance too. Location :- Because the house in in the hills, its best (but not essential) to use your own transport - scooters ideally or a car. The house is 1.6km from the main road, 15 mins drive from the airport and Bangrak, 30 mins from Lipa Noi and 45 mins from Nathon (Seatran mainland ferries). It is barely 5-10 minutes ride from the main bars/nightclubs in Chaweng but peacefully positioned on the outskirts of town a little in the jungle. Transport (car/bike/taxi) is recommended but not essential to get up the not too steep hill to the house from the main ring road. Nearest beach is just at the bottom of the road (approx. 2km). *Terms of the scooter:- Scooter : i will supply a Honda Click Scooter 125cc free of charge. Extra bikes can be arranged 250b per day. Riders must be competent (i may ask you to show me) and hold minimum a car driver's license. Customers are responsible for scooter damage caused and will be billed accordingly. A deposit may be required such as a drivers license or your passport. If you are a novice or have limited experience but still want to try i can give you lessons. Don't be over confident - just ask. Don't feel you have to take a scooter or car. Its just as easy to use public transport, taxis, walk etc because it is all at the bottom of the road. Airport / Port pickup : mostly made by my usual taxi driver Bung, who knows the villa well. He will greet you and take you to the house direct where we will be waiting to greet you and do check-in. If arriving by boat at Nathon (Seatran) or Lipa Noi (Raja) its sometimes easier if you get your own taxi to Fair House Hotel, Chaweng and i can meet you from there. I will pay 500b towards this. Phone : I supply a local mobile so you can contact me - it is a local number. It is also useful to order taxis, food etc. Extra credit can bought from any 7-Eleven / Family Mart convenience store. The 3rd bed (ie. for the 5th person) is a comfortable fold-up single bed and needs to be arranged prior. It goes in the rear bedroom (which already has a queen-sized double). A 6th person staying in the villa is charged at 500b per day. We live nearby so we will look after you during your stay and try to make it your best holiday ever.More

About the neighbourhood
The house is situated in a quiet spot in the hills but just a few minutes from the main town Chweng which offers shopping, restaurants , bars and nightlife such as the famous Soi Green Mango. Many young people like to use the Island as a base to go by speedboat to the famous 'Full Moon Parties' at Koh Phanang too. (just 800 bhat return journey) For the adventurous there are mountains, diving, waterfalls, elephant riding, bike riding, crocodile zoos etc. amongst many activities to explore. For those looking for tranquility there are many empty beaches to explore especially the far side of the island (Bang Por). Thai people don't go to the beach because they prefer to stay out of the sun so most beaches are very quiet. For those looking for treatment, remedies, spa's , massage , therap...
How to get there
Flights Take a flight to Bangkok and then fly Bangkok Airways to Koh Samui. (nb. This is the preferred route. There is no point using others routes unless you have plenty of time). or a cheaper domestic flight route is Bangkok to Suratthani (approx.1300bhat), Suratthani airport by bus to Donsak port (1 hour), and use the ferry (90 min. crossing) to Nathon port (45 mins from Chweng) in Koh Samui but this takes approx. 4 hours more time. And ferries don't run at night. Other airports not too far : Krabi. There are also direct flights from Pattaya and Phuket (both mainland) or international: Singapore and Kuala Lumpa. And Lomprayah (a local transport company) do a useful sea cat / bus journey to Bangkok via Koh Tao. Bus There are many overnight buses from Bangkok etc. (from 700b) T...
