“Unforgettable stay in Koh Phangan”
Reviewed 2 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My friends and I rented the villa for a week in September. The pictures and reviews looked very promising - and the actual stay exceeded our expectations! The villa was clean and well maintained with all the basic amenities provided. The owners came to pick us up at the harbour, which was incredibly nice of them. The villa was very homely, a short distance from the town and less than 10 minutes' walk from what we agreed was the best beach in Koh Phangan! The owners are two of the nicest people I've ever met - super friendly, welcoming and always happy to help. They paid attention to detail (shared some of their drinking water, stocked up the fridge with a couple of water and soda bottles when we arrived, changed our linen and cleaned the villa halfway through our stay, lent us a mobile phone for emergencies, etc...) These simple gestures were really appreciated and made sure our stay was memorable and perfect in every way. It was really hard to leave the villa and saying goodbye to the owners was very sad but I will definitely go back one day!

“Lovely Villa, Stunning View”
Reviewed 2 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed with a group of four friends at the Jasmine Hideaway in late September.

Phirom and Janet picked us up from the port and were kind enough to drop us off at Tesco while they brought our luggage to the villa. They were very warm and welcoming. The next day, Phirom came by and answered all our questions. He also gave us some great advice about where we should go on the island as well as tourist traps to avoid. Phirom and Janet live in the villa next door, which means they are on hand if you need anything. They also give you as much privacy as you need - even when we were playing music and singing into the early hours of the morning!

One of the best things about the villa was the fact that Phirom let us use his jeep. This gives you enormous freedom to explore the island and saves a good deal of money (taxis are in the region of 50-100 baht each if you have a group). Be warned, though, the jeep takes some getting used to and should only be driven by fairly experienced drivers (particularly since getting to the villa involves driving up a very steep hill). Luckily, Phirom took me out for a test drive on the first day and should seriously consider a part-time job as a driving instructor!

The villa itself is very clean and charming. There are two bedrooms that comfortably sleep 2 each. The kitchen is fully equipped and Janet was kind enough to leave some essential groceries in the fridge. The swimming pool/jacuzzi is nice to relax in, though we didn't use it much given how close the beach was.

The nearest beach is a mere 5 minute walk away and, after exploring almost every beach on the island, we agreed that it is the best on the island. We visited at low season, so it was practically a private beach for us.

The absolute selling point of the villa is the amazing view. The villa, as the name suggests, is hidden away on the side of a hill. This gives a terific view of the sea and a number of smaller islands. Having breakfast with such a great view as a backdrop was a definite highlight.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and were very sad to leave both the villa and Phirom and Janet. If we ever return to the island, we'll be sure to stay here.

Hi Ken ,Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review .
We never heard you singing in the early hours ,if we had known we would have stayed up to listen !!.
Phirom has given some thought to your suggestion of becomeing a driving instructor but has decided he likes being a host more .
We look forward to seeing you again ,hopefully we will have a better jeep next time .
Thank you again Janette & Phirom .

“So easy to come home to!”
Reviewed 6 July 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We ended up extending our stay here as it was so easy to settle into with our children. The beds were comfortable, and the 2nd bedroom/bed more than big enough for our children to share. There was a lovely raised deck attached to the living area where we were able to sit and eat breakfast - Complete with a beautiful view of the ocean! We had a washer and dryer to use, as well as our own private jetted plunge pool. The BIGGEST bonus of all was that we had full use of Phirom's jeep, which we used to explore the island. It gave us a lot of freedom and flexibility, and was a huge deciding factor in us deciding to extend our stay. It was great to be able to leave at whim and go to different beaches/restaurants. Phirom was great and not only picked us up from the dock, but took us right to the grocery store we we could stock the fridge for breakfast. Lovely lovely hosts and place to stay.

“Luxurious western style villa with stunning views and a close proximity to the beach and town.”
Reviewed 29 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Having been to Koh Phangan on several holidays, we knew what we were in for. What we found at Jasmine Hideaway was completely above expectation! The owner picked us up at the harbor, even though we arrived an hour later than expected. The house was clean, beautifully maintained and true to, if not better than the pictures. We stayed for 6 weeks with visitors coming and going. The owners did everything to ensure that we and our guests were comfortable. They even helped us arrange scooter hire and gave us great tips on restaurants, shops, local foods and customs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already booked for 6 weeks next year.

“Lovely quiet hideway with beautiful view”
Reviewed 18 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We had a very happy stay in the Jasmine Hideaway for ten days over New Year's with our two teen-aged children. We normally stay at hotels but we wanted a change so that we could shop, cook and interact more as a family. We looked at various options on Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, and finally decided on the Jasmine Hideaway as it looked the best and the price was good. Overall, it was a great experience. The cottage is simple but very livable with a great view of the water and an expanse of palm trees, especially at sunset. It also has a small but pleasant pool. The rental came with a jeep (included in price) so the fact that the property is a bit far from town didn't matter. There was also a nice small resort a short walk down the hill on the beach so when we didn't want to cook we would go down there for lunch and hang out. We were a bit disappointed in general with the beaches in Koh Phangan (most of which are both below par and overcrowded) but it turned out that the little unknown beach at the Sea Scape Resort down the hill was one of the best on the island. The island itself of course is the home to the famous (or infamous, depending upon your point of view) "full moon party" but that is at the south end of the island and didn't have any impact upon us, except for the ubiquitous sight of backpackers on scooters. The owner was also very helpful and the local manager was prompt to come whenever we needed his assistance. The only negative thing was that there is a bar nearby that played music fairly loudly late into the night (we kept the air con on in part to drown out the noise). All in all, I would recommend the Jasmine Hideaway for those looking for an independent vacation adventure somewhat different from the typical hotel experience.

Note also that the property is up at the end of a long, steep hill. The jeep that comes with the rental is a bit old (we dubbed it "super jeep") and is a manual stick shift that requires a fair amount of experience to operate. On the other hand, it seems to be fairly easy to get taxis down the bottom of the hill for those who don't want to drive themselves.
