We stayed for three nights in mid November at Woodlawn Villas in a garden suite. We had travelled by overnight train from Bangkok to Chumporn, missing our boat connection as the train was two and a half hours late. Despite monsoon conditions and a very rough crossing we finally arrived late afternoon at Woodlawn Villas. Luke was there to meet and greet and as has been mentioned, run through his welcome briefing.
The suite was well equipped and comfortable and included much needed water and umbrellas, mobile phone, torches and resident gecko. Luke and Michelle were very helpful with advice on beaches, walks and restaurants and the location was perfect, being close to all amenities but still quiet and secluded.
Recommendations would be to eat at the Taktu restaurant , about 5 minutes walk from Woodlawn and Freedom beach for snorkelling (we saw a turtle) as it is sheltered from the north east monsoon.
We would certainly recommend Woodlawn Villas as the place to stay in Chalok, Koh Tao.
