“A real retreat from the world”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I stayed at Dee Dee for 9 nights earlier this month. We were a large family group with a toddler. It was an important holiday for us - a family reunion. We were delighted with our stay and I'd highly recommend this villa to anyone who really wants to get away from it all.
Our family is part Thai and we have travelled extensively throughout Thailand, and I have to say Koh Phangan and Dee Dee was one of the reals gems we have discovered. The location is down a rutted road (4x4 suggested - we had 2), and is completely removed from all the touristy destinations on the island. The beach is essentially private, we had it to ourselves our whole stay. Beach shoes needed as lots of dead coral, but worth wading out to the reef for some excellent snorkelling.
Jamsey (owner) and Toni (manager) were really helpful whilst we were making our booking, and kindly provided a cot and highchair for my little one. Really nice to know our booking was with people who obviously pride themselves on professionalism and a personal touch.
We hired both villas and enjoyed the novelty of having a private pool. Toni and her team came in twice daily (at an agreed time) to empty the bins, tidy up, open/close the pool umbrellas etc. The couple of times we had a minor problem (e.g: blocked toilet), Toni had it sorted within a very sort time.
We found the villas were well located for exploring the island, again with the use of our rental cars. It's a short drive to the nearby fishermans village, and we ate at 2 excellent seafood restaurants there (very much Thai style and authentic). There is also a diving shop, 7-11, pharmacy and elephant trekking nearby. We did several excursions around the island - Haad Rin Nok for shopping, waterfalls, visiting Salad and Mae Haad beach. We also had a great hike to Bottle Beach over the headland. 1h walk for most, we did it in 2 as I was carrying my toddler on my back.
My favourite thing about staying at Dee Dee was waking up to the magnificent views, and spending time as a family in the large outdoor patio. It was so serene and quiet, all you can hear is the ocean and birds in the forest that surrounds it. We did a fair bit of our own cooking and the kitchens were well equipped. The only negative point was I found the lack of air-conditioning in the living/kitchen areas uncomfortable at times, especially in the evenings when we had to close the doors to keep mosquitoes out. I'd suggest installing an A/C unit in each villa's communal area, and mosquito screens on the doors for a more comfortable stay. However, there is a lovely breeze from the sea which keeps the villa cool during the day when the doors are open.
In summary, my whole family had a really lovely stay at Dee Dee, and Toni was a star - looking after us all (even posting my brothers wallet that he left behind). We'll be hoping to stay here again next time we visit Phangan. Thanks guys!

“Simply great”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Great place with a stunning sea view. Swimming pool with a jacuzzi. Semi-private beach just below the property, there were never more than two or three other people each time we went there, most of the cases we had it all to ourselves (as per attached photos). Tastefully furnished villas - these are actually two separate ones - close enough to each other though to be considered as one, however if needed offering enough privacy and seclusion which would enable a second family to have a comfortable stay without disrupting the other . You would probably need a car or a bike to be able to get to the nearest 7 Eleven (2.5 kms away) but on the other hand you could easily walk it too. Toni, the British manager of the Dee Dee Villas was very professional and helpful. All in all - highly recommendable, either for two couples with kids (like us) or an extended family, etc. We will return !

“A little slice of paradise in Koh Phangan”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed at the absolutely beautiful Dee Dee villas in January this year. After a week on Koh Samui, the tranquillity and location of Dee Dee villas was exactly what we were after...There were 6 adults, one lively toddler and two babies under a year in our party. Ahead of our stay, Toni (the lovely manager of the property) kindly arranged three cots and a highchair for our use during our stay. I was a little apprehensive about the safety of the villas for children, but was delighted on arriving to see double locks on all of the gates surrounding the outside space, which meant peace of mind for us adults. Obviously the children, as with anywhere near water, do need to be supervised around the pool area and also the steps leading down to both the pool and beach are a little steep.
The location of Dee Dee is unrivalled, I don't think there can be many places like that left in the world. It's like having your very own slice of paradise on your doorstep. Waking up to hear the waves crashing outside and being able to walk down a few steps to your own beach every day is unbeatable. Although the beach is lovely, it does have quite a lot of coral in the water, so you do need to be careful. However, more beautiful sandy beaches are a mere 5 minute drive away. Car hire is essential here.
Although remote, there is a fantastic, authentic restaurant just behind the villas which serves exceptional food. The waiting time could be a little inconsistent (3 hours one night!) but to be honest, for us it all added to the charm and you knew the food was super fresh …. The local Thai man who owns it, always delivered the food to the villas with a big smile!
The villas itself are beautiful and absolutely perfect for 2 groups travelling together. If you're looking for a private, luxurious retreat away from the hustle and bustle, then you can't get a better location than Dee Dee. We very much hope to return one day.

“Beautiful veiws and privacy and definate plus.”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

After experiencing issues with our bookingnetween their complany and our australia banks, once we arrived at the port on Koh Phangan we were greated by the manager Toni. Toni went above and beyond to provide a very professional and helpful services at all times when we required. She is an absolute credit to the business.

The complimentary food package upon arrival was a lovely unexpected surprise,(the crossaints were amazing) and the fridge was stocked with almost everything we needed for the first few days. Also plenty of fresh bottled water which was conveneint.

The villa is located quite far away from the main tourist areas, but only a 5 min drive from Chaloklum, and we very much thought of this as a positive. We had the option to a private driver which we utilised and he was very lovely.

The villas are nice, the air-con very good, but I think in need of a few upgrades, the views are spectacular and the beach just down from the villas were awesome for snorkelling, and hardly anyone else around.

Although we missed some of the things you would be provided in a resort - the privacy was a very worthy comprimise. I would recommend the villas to family and friends, and I'm quite sure we will be coming back.

“Excellent accomodation, location and Hosts”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We went as a wedding party and hired both villas at Dee Dee Villas for a week and we really didnt want to leave, from the moment we arrived Toni handles everything for us with absolute diligence, from the welcome Hamper through to organising and recommending Scooters, transfers and Diving etc.

The accomodation itself was lovely and private, the bay where it is located is really like your own paradise, snorkling there was ideal as it is sheltered from currents and there were plenty of little fish to look at.
It is a quick trip to Chaloklum village which is perfect if you want to escape the tourist mecca located on Haad Rin. The village has everything you need 7/11, restaurants, dive shops and a few pubs. Truely a wonderful little part of the world.

Thanks again Toni for your vigilence and professionalism couldn't ask for more and you made our holiday a little more special.

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

I stayed at Dee Dee Villas with some friends over the New Year break. The manager Toni picked us up from the Koh Phangnan port and the transfer was seamless. We arrived to find a fantastic feast of bread, proscuitto, cheeses and more. Toni arranged scooters for us the same day we arrived. She was absolutely fantastic from start to finish.
The villas are more beautiful in real life than the pictures portray. The pool overlooks the private beach; the whole place is simply stunning. The villas are located near Chaloklum, which is an authentic Thai fishing village. It is quiet and not overrun by tourists, the people are so lovely and the food amazing.
I will definitely be returning to Dee Dee Villas and highly recommend anyone wanting a luxurious peaceful holiday to stay there too. Paradise!

“Beautiful retreat”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Lovely spacious villas, the beach may as well be a private beach we never saw anyone else there the whole time we stayed.
Bioluminescent plankton in the sea water was a surprise I will never forget.
Air conditioning in the rooms and a great kitchen if you choose to cook yourself.
