Highly recommend this stunning villa. Everything was perfect to round my holiday off. We come back. I can't thank Chris enough. Just amazing.

“Stunning well maintained property in great location.”
Reviewed 6 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We loved this property, despite previous reviews we found it to be very well maintained, clean and perfect for our needs with someone always available for advice or assistance. Everything was spotless with regular housekeeping, pool maintenance and gardening all happening during our stay without being intrusive. The included transfer as part of the rental cost was a nice touch and worked well in both directions.

The villa is very well equipped with everything you will need including fast internet and the ability to set up your own Netflix account on the main TV, not that we used it much. The pool was great and the outside seating on two levels offered many options for catching the sun or relaxing in the shade. The security features around the property including CCTV gave peace of mind, not that I think crime is much of a problem here.

The location was perfect for those wanting to relax away from the hustle of the main locations yet they were all easily accessible by taxi if required. We used the Navigo app which was brilliant and saved a lot of cash compared with the local taxi option. The cars were always top class and drivers safe and courteous. My grown up kids used the service several times to get around the island and couldn't fault it. One word of advice is to use the map and set your pick up as the 7/11 or Family Mart on the main road ten minutes from the villa as your pick up point, this offered more cars available.

The beach is a short walk and one of the most stunning I have witnessed in Thailand, there's everything you will need locally with a range of eating options within close vicinity. The Boom Bar on the beach was good and the Thai options on their menu excellent, this was some of the best food we had on the holiday although the surroundings weren't the best the experience was certainly authentic and popular with many. Pizzeria La Villa up near the 7/11 also impressed with very tasty pizza if you want a change from Thai food.

If you want top class villa accommodation in a quiet location with everything you will need within a ten minute walk and the more touristy side of Samui a cheap and short taxi trip away then I thoroughly recommend this villa. Nicole the owner was great during the booking process answering any questions I had prior to the holiday and emailing while we were there to make sure everything was OK while we also had contact with the local villa manager if needed.

“Perfect quiet villa”
Reviewed 24 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This villa was perfect for a quiet and relaxing vacation. The villa itself is amazing, very spacious,modern,and light,it feels and looks new,exactly as pictured. The surrounding area is very quiet and is nothing like chaweng or lamai but the nearest beach is simply the best,no rocks,no waves,clear water,at least in January, perfect for kids and adults. We didn't have bikes and walked everywhere,the nearest beach if 7-10 minutes away, multiple restaurants, massage parlors, stores, even a gym are within minutes by foot.

“Villa did not live up to expectations”
Reviewed 13 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

person found this review helpful

Vila was a beautiful property when built. It is suffering from poor maintainance. I think the owner needs to take into account that the people renting this Villa have had an expectation built from previous reviews about service and attention. It would appear after the last poor review that the Villa Manger has gone missing in action. Gaynor is the property Manager and she actioned the faults draw to her attention. Night one no hot water handy man visits at 10 pm after we travelled all day. My wife rang and asked them to come and fix hours before then fell asleep I was woken up with a phone call. I think hot water system had been turned off and not turned back on with enough time to heat up. Fan didn't work in master bed room fixed next day. Fan remote broken in kitchen. Not fixed. Day two dishwasher did not work we stayed 11 days and it was not fixed smelled out the kitchen with rancid water. Cupboard in master draws don't open wrong size installed. Chest of draw in master falling apart from humidity do not open draws runners fell apart I fixed. Shower head in second upstairs bedroom through water all over floor as head split glued it up did not fix problem. Pool is beautiful tiles need to be scrubbed and had a lot of rain filled with worms not vacuumed frequently enough. The worms stayed in the pool for a week. We decided not to get on the phone all the time as we were on holidays this should all have been sorted from previous review. The cleaners did a great job not complains about the cleanliness of Villa. That at least had been fixed. I think the principal problem is that this Villa is represented as a Luxury Private Villa. It is private layout is awesome as each bedroom has ensuite and toilet downstairs. It is not in a good position as away from everything. During New Year local businesses close so restaurants and shopping needs to be done at the Main Street this is only a 10 minute walk but after doing it multiply times a day in the rain or heat you get a little over it. I agree with the previous review you really need a car or moped to make it convenient we did not want this Hassel hence booked the Vill on the promise of convenience and service. We befriended several local who acted as taxis but we need to get to them first so we could talk face to face. What's app messenger and phone calls don't cut it when you have a language barrier. At the corner of the Main Street next to the family mart an Australia owns the bar and does taxi and hires mopeds. This is probably a good way to get round the language issue if your like us and your Thia is not fluent. I feel we we overcharged for our accommodation. As they didn't deliver on service. The other thing is the outside is run down and poorly maintained gives a very poor perception on arrival. Concrete needs and good clean as the driveway and all the exterior of the house slippery. Make sure you have medical insurance as it is an accident waiting to happen. I left a defects list with about a dozen point on it in an attempt to bring things up to standard for the next people. I would bet money that nothing has been done. The technology is old as well for a premium villa is 5 years out of date. It would only take $120 bucks for an Apple TV in each room and you could interface with multi media when the rain is pouring down. If you have children I would suggest taking an Apple TV or something in case it rains. Internet good speed ok. I only mention this as TV channels only have two in English. Not there to watch TV but we had some very heavy rain and Netflix is awesome with its titles in Thailand. In summary big on promises but did not deliver. Could not recommend at the price they ask.

Dear John - our thanks for taking the time to provide detailed feedback on your stay at Baan Siri Varee.

As has been the case with prior feedback we take your input very seriously and we are deeply concerned about the matters raised here.

Nothing matters more to us than our guests' experiences and yours is clearly not consistent with our 'product standards.'

We have certainly moved swiftly to upgrade the dishwasher and are working systematically through the maintenance matters you have brought to our attention...again, thank-you.

Some of the issues are seasonal as we grapple with realities like swollen woodwork effecting wooden fixtures & fittings in the rainy season but the remainder are actionable & in hand.

We are overhauling our maintenance efforts most importantly to address any potential concerns regarding guest safety - we have not received such feedback before & have moved to resolve it very quickly indeed.

As you have alluded to, prior reviews highlight the level of experience we pride ourselves on offering guests - we are personally disappointed that you did receive the full experience....immediate action to resolve & return things to the level our guests have come to expect & enjoy is well underway.

Thanks & Rgds, Nicole & Paul (owners)

“Reasonable quality villa”
Reviewed 20 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We have lost returned from a 4 nights stay at this villa. Firstly the airport transfer was waiting for us ontime and dropped us at the villa which was approx a 20/25 mins drive away.

We were initially quite impressed with the villa and was a good size for the three of us.

I have read many reviews regarding villas in Ko Samui and it took me a long time to finally make a decision on which one to book. We thought this was a reasonable price and received good reviews from previous travellers.

One reason I booked this was the representation (villa manager) who previous visitors commented were always to hand. When we arrived we were greeted and given the keys, we was not given any tour around the villa or shown where anything was, there wasn't even an information booklet in the property to help travellers. We did not hear from anyone throughout our stay, not even once to check if we were enjoying our visit, the lady who gave us the keys said she had to rush off as she had a drs appointment, which was all very disappointing, I even had to chase up our return transfers, we had a poor impression that the villa was badly managed locally and lack of satisfaction for its visitors.

The villa in my opinion is not well maintained or looked after. There was only two sun loungers around the pool which both had rips/stains on them.

Cleanliness on the surface appeared good however on deeper inspection, inside cupboards and top of kitchen appliances wasn't cleaned properly with sticky surfaces. The kitchen was fully equipped and everything you needed was provided.

The beds were comfortable and we did have a good few nights sleep.

You do not need a car to visit this villa as you can walk to many different bars/restaurants and the local beach, (as stated on the website) my recommendation is that you do get one! It's a fair distance from the main town if you wish to visit, taxi's were easily accessible via the main road which was about 5/10 mins walk away.

Overall we had a pleasant stay but I would choose another property if I were to return to Ko Samui.

Hope my review helps you out when choosing your property to stay.
