Stayed a week. Would have loved a month! Spotless, beautiful, immaculate, private Villa. Excellent location. Short walk to beach. Lovely restaurants and little grocery shops nearby. Managed by Lin who speaks great English and is on call 24/7. Sees to anything and everything. We reluctantly ventured out of ban tai to do Island explore, fishermans village and do big grocery shop on arrival (tesco lotus 20 mins drive away- local taxi there and back) but couldn't wait to return to our little haven. Ban tai is still a somewhat sleepy fishing village-perfect if you don't want to be caught up in the touristy areas but still have access to them. Daily morning walks were amazing as you get to meet the locals who are all so very friendly. Nothing will ever live up to this experience. The best.
We've had als fantastic week in Baan tai tara 4. The villa was clean, service excelent.Thanks to mr. LIN. It is only 5 min walk to a nice beach, with a beautiful Sunset. We will comeback!
Me and my partner stayed in this beautiful open planned villa for 5 days at the end of march. We enjoyed the entire experience and have decided to return for a longer stay next month. The villa was well equipped and the manager Lin was great and always smiling. He organised our car and bike higher, breakfast delivery and was always available to us to answer/assist with any questions both with the house and going out on Samui. Booking the villa was easy through Jacquie the owner and we were pleased with our overall experience.
We have just spent 5 days at this villa. It was just lovely! We had a car to meet us and Jacquies agent met us at the property. We were so happy! The villa was so private, so clean. It was very light and you could open doors all around. It would be perfect for two couples or friends or take your mum!! The pool was fresh water and a fancy water feature. Kitchen was very well equipped. Cool with air con, even had outside fan!
Beautiful planting in garden. Floating in pool looking at sky through tropical plants! Magical!
Area was nice and quiet, lovely friendly lady running shop opposite. Can get eggs, milk,bread beer, wine and fresh fruit! Can also buy cheap bottle of beer and sit with the locals in the evening.
About 4 local restaurants, we tried all of them. You can have Thai food or pizza. We also eat on the beach for a snack. Beach was fab, coconut palms, quiet, massage ladies and few cafés. We loved area so much, we didn't go anywhere else except one trip to another village nearby. Transport looked easy to obtain, can visit livelier place (eg boh phut) within 20 mins . We used the local ladies(men?) who did laundry for 50baht a kilo.
If you are seeking a beautiful villa, great service, simple area with all you need then this is for you! We will return!

Had a fantastic holiday here with my husband and our two children (aged 8 and 12). The villa is beautiful. Clean, spacious, modern and comfortable. There are a couple of shops directly opposite the villa, and a 7/11 at the top of the road about 100m away. There are also a few small, family-run restaurants close by with tasty, reasonably priced food if you don't want to cook. We liked the local 'MK restaurant' which is run by a German guy, where the food was exceptionally tasty and the service friendly and efficient. They also have a pool table and make good cocktails!
The beach is a 5 minute walk from the villa and we enjoyed walking down with a freshly squeezed juice purchased from one of the roadside vendors. Delicious!
We had such a chilled out, relaxed time here, that we didn't even bother to hire a car or bike and explore further afield, although there are lots of places of interest to visit on the island. We really liked Bophut (approx 10 minutes by taxi) for its selection of sophisticated dining choices and beach bars, and of course, it's Friday market, which is well worth a browse around.
Jacquie, the owner and manager, was very helpful and the cleaning of the villa was impeccable. We had clean towels every other day and fresh flowers three times during our stay. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in peaceful, beautiful surroundings. Five stars!
