We stayed at Woodlawn Villas at the start of April 2012 in a Garden Villa and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in such tranquil surroundings.
Prior to our holiday in Thailand and Koh Tao, we spent many hours between us trawling through numerous places of accommodation and stumbled upon this "Little Gem". All the excellent Trip Advisor reviews are to be believed and hit the nail on the head.
The Villa is situated only 5mins taxi ride from the ferry pier at Mae Haad and is easily within walking distance to Sairee Beach, approx 30mins. A supermarket is only 2mins walk away and believe me, it sells pretty much anything that you could possibly need and also a nice fresh fruit & vegetable stall, the mango is to die for! Chalok Beach can be walked to in under 10mins offers some nice beach bars & restaurants. Once more, the Villa was good value for money.
The owners, Michelle & Luke are so friendly and are always available to assist in making your stay memorable and offering knowledgeable advice of local attractions/ammenities. A very simple but effective touch was that you are given a mobile phone with useful contact numbers pre-stored, so if required then help is at hand at a touch of a button.
The accommodation itself was very nice. The kitchen area and and dining area was very handy. The DVD library was nice if you fancied a night in. A range of menus from local eateries was provided so that you could call in an order and they would deliver it free of charge.
All in all, this is a great place to stay in Ko Tao, offering a more personalised and local experience than some of the major hotels on the beachfront.
