We stayed for 2 weeks at Woodlawn Villas from July 15th to July 29th.
Our villa was the big villa in the garden, and it really felt like a home for us. Separate bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, a big and spacious livingroom/kitchen/dining area, big porch and garden. Absolutely lovely. Fully equipped with kitchen, TV with DVD-player, and aircon in bedrooms.
We slept to the exotic sounds of frogs and gekkos, in comfortable and big beds. We met so many cute dogs and cats, hens and cocks, and we even saw some snakes.
Michelle and Luke are such a friendly, warm couple, and they came running whenever we needed, telling us about beaches, restaurants, spa's and diving. Thank you for tips on Au Leuk beach - heaven on earth! Alvaro Diving - so perfect for us, liking small groups.
Restaurants we loved was Tukta Thai just 7 minutes walk away has incredible cheap and yummy food, and Ying Yang has the best curries. We loved to walk around, and never bothered to rent motor bikes. Great coffee and breakfast on the way to the beach where they sell hammocs (a very small place with just 2 tables outside, and a tattoo shop next door). For special experiences, go to MOOV for tapas, or Whitening for more fancy food. If you like spicy food, remember to ask for extra hot - the thai way is "pet mak mak". :)
If you want a taste of the posher life on Koh Tao, we reccomend a trip to Jamakhiri Resort for spa treatments, lunch and pool enjoyment. Wonderful views, and lovely spa.
We will be back some day, and will try the pool you're building now.
Hugs from Lise, Robert and William.
