“Great house in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed in the Butterfly Garden villa for 2 weeks over Christmas. The property has undergone a huge renovation and was not completely finished when we arrived. This did lead to several real problems. We do appreciate that the owner did his best to solve the problems, but were disappointed with them all the same. When the refurbishment is really finished however, the property will be perfect. We loved the location of the house and the layout of the house is great as well.
I would recommend renting a car when staying at the house.

“Fantastic stay in Butterfly Garden Villa”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My wife, 3 children and I had a fantastic 11 night stay in Butterfly Garden Villa in July.
The villa was beautifully decorated and it had all the amenities we needed, including wifi, 5 bathrooms and comfortable furnishings with a nice view over the south part of the island towards the sea.
The owner met us at the airport and provided us with the use of a local mobile phone? Dave was very attentive to our queries and needs? I was impressed when he offered to drive me around the area to show me his favourite restaurants and things to do?
We hope to return in a few years.

We stayed for 6 nights and found the villa to be everything we needed for a relaxing and peaceful say. The villa is extremely well laid out and provides plenty of room to find your own space.

The bedrooms are all air conditioned and each has full en-suite facilities. The surrounding area is extremely quiet, but as a couple of very good local restaurants...either 10 minute walk or very short drive.

Wifi operated efficiently during the whole stay and together with cable TV we were able to entertain ourselves.

The best time at the villa was undoubtedly at night time and sitting by the pool with a cold drink and absolute silence.

You will definitely need a car for your stay and you will be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to drive and navigate the entire island.

Dave was a great assistance and provided great advice and support.

Don't waste your time in a hotel...this is the way to holiday!!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed in this villa for 15 nights. We loved it. Quiet neighbourhood. Restaurants on walking distance (we loved the Barracuda). Butterfly garden villa is a large house with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. We where with the two of us so we had a lot of space. But if you are with family with kids or friend there is enough space for everyone. Renting a car is nescessary to do your shopping and driving around the island. The owner Dave is very kind and makes you feel welcome. Going back to Koh Samui is going back to Butterfly garden villa.

“Truly gorgeous villa”
Reviewed 18 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Just back from four nights at the Butterfly Garden Villa.

I feared that it could not be as attractive as it looks on the pictures, but it is in fact even more lovely. The design of the villa is so open and makes such optimal use of light and the views of surrounding greenery and even a sliver of the sea down below, it is truly wonderful.

David was very helpful, and the service of picking us up from the ferry was much appreciated. David provides a local phone, and plenty of advice on where things are locally. We decided to hire a vehicle (Toyota Hilux Pick-up) from them for about US$35 per day, worth it for the extra mobility.

Of course, the villa is not next to the beach, it is about a 10 min. walk. Some of the dogs guarding properties between the villa and the beach can make this is a somewhat hairy walk, though luckily we experienced all bark and no bite. The nearby beach is wonderfully low on tourists, compared to Chaweng, although at low tide one can't really swim there.

The bathrooms let the villa down a little bit, in terms of looking rather old and caulking being cracked, etc., but that is really nit-picking. All in all, this a gorgeous and relaxing villa, that for Koh Samui represents extremely good value for money.

“Fantastic holiday”
Reviewed 18 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

LOCATION
Butterfly Garden Villa is located well off the beaten path, south of Lamai. You'll need a car to get into town for groceries, restaurants, and nightlife in Chaweng (30 mins away) or Lamai (15 mins). David made it relatively painless for us by providing a free ride to and from the villa, and by helping us rent a car which was at the villa when we arrived. The beach is an easy half kilometer walk down the hill and across a field of coconut trees.

BEACH
The beach near the villa is quite nice with white sand and few people. The water is shallow, think knee-high, so it's not great for swimming. Even still, we made several trips down to the beach and for relaxation and amazing ocean views.

Tip: Walk a bit north along the beach and you'll hit the fishing village of Maret with lots of colorful boats lashed to the shore. We tried to charter a boat here for the day but couldn't find anyone who spoke English. You might have better luck.

VILLA
The villa was visually stunning and immaculately clean. The pool was fantastic and the outdoor dining table with a fan over it was perfect for relaxing dinners. The four bedrooms each with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom, were perfect for our group. The mattresses are more firm than you may be used to, but very typical for Thailand. The kitchen is equipped with plenty of pots/pans/dishes/knives, a microwave, gas stove, and plenty of counter space for food prep. The washing machine was a godsend as it allowed everyone to pack less clothes. There's a great walkthrough video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Kp7bpQ76To

The three big couches in the common area were perfect for hanging out, but there's no AC outside the bedrooms so we frequently had to take a dip in the pool to cool off. The jacuzzi is not a hot tub, but given the heat in Samui this wasn't really a problem.

Tip: This is a jungle island and ants are everywhere. Don't leave any food out even for a short time.

SERVICE
David was very responsive via email and made sure someone was available to pick us up at the airport when he couldn't do it himself. Neung (David's assistant) and the cleaning staff came by to clean every 3 days and provide us with fresh towels. The internet went down shortly after we got into the villa, but we were able to get a hold of David via the phone he provided and a couple days later it was back up. When the island authorities shut off the water for rationing, David hired a company to truck in water so we barely even noticed.

OVERALL
If you're looking for lots of eating out and partying at bars, this isn't the location for you. If on the other hand, you're looking for a relaxing vacation with friends or family, it's perfect.

We all had a fantastic experience on Samui and that was in no small part due to this beautiful property and David/Neung's hard work. We'll be staying here again on our next trip to the island.
