“Great hosts”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Luke and Michelle are definitely people cut out for hospitality. I was on a short trip to Koh Tao with my boyfriend and Luke really made sure we got the most out of Koh Tao.
The mobile phone they give you to contact them while on the island is super handy when you're after suggestions of what to do and where to go.
The menus for local cafes in the villas are also handy, we ordered breakfast each morning we were there an it was great.
The villa is a bit further from the beach but we didn't so much mind the walk as we enjoyed staying at woodlawn. Its also close to the 'aukotan' a kind of one stop shop which was also handy.
We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Koh Tao.

Room Tip: We managed to get an upgrade to the twilight villa which was great but pure luck so i don't thin...

We stayed at Woodlawn Villas for 3 nights at the start of May. We really enjoyed our stay - couldn't fault the size of the accommodation, the cleanliness or the hosts, Luke and Michelle, who gave us a very warm welcome and a great introduction to the island.

The villas are a short walk from the beach and some lovely bars & restaurants - we found this part of the island far more preferable to the hustle and bustle of the main Sairee Beach area.

All in all a very relaxing trip and I'd definitely stay here again!

I originally booked a two week stay then changed it to one because I wasn't sure if I would like the island as much as I did. As I said to Luke&Michelle I would probably regret that decision & I did, because the island is fantastic, as is the location & accommodation at Woodlawn Villas. It is only a 10-15 minute walk from the beach, & less to the shops and bars.
The advantage of Woodlawn is that it's close enough to the beach, yet far enough away to get a good ( quiet ) nights sleep.
The accommodation itself is excellent, home from home. Very clean & very well equipped, with air con, fridge, kitchenette with everything needed, fresh towels daily, tv & dvd, EVEN a pre-payed mobile phone with phone numbers for taxis, take aways, Luke&Michelle. They've really thought about their business from the big things to the smallest things & I can't think of anything to criticise.
Luke & Michelle are always at the end of the phone & available to help where they can, and are very helpful in recommending things to do & places to go.
All in all a very enjoyable stay & I shall be returning. Give it a go you won't be disappointed !!!!

Best regards, Dean

We stayed here for 12 nights in April and would highly recommend it. We wanted somewhere special and relaxing to stay and definitely found it in Woodlawn Villas. The location was perfect for us - lovely and quiet, set in well kept grounds but walking distance to the shops, good restaurants and the beach.

We stayed in a Garden Villa and the rooms are really clean and comfortable and I slept better than I've done in years. The kitchen has everything you need (we cooked quite a bit). There's a lovely balcony which is perfect to sit on for breakfast. Usually if you stay somewhere a while you start to notice little things that need attention but this is really not the case here - well except the fact my partner felt the DVD selection was too girlie but that was fine by me :)

What makes Woodlawn Villas so special above all are the owners, Michelle and Luke. They gave us loads of advice on where to go to on the island, places to eat at, quiet beaches etc. Michelle was great from the moment we contacted her with the booking inquiry and set up transport to meet us etc which all worked well. Luke was great with all the food recommendations! There was no question they couldn't answer. They were lovely to chat to but equally if you don't want to be sociable they would be very respectful of that.

We'd highly recommend staying here if you want a lovely holiday and we'll definitely be back as soon as we can.
