“Completely lived up to our expectations and more!!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

We were specifically looking for a quiet accommodation option when researching Koh Tao knowing that Koh Tao often attracts the back packer crowd and the younger diving types.

We started researching a year prior to our trip and Belynda was very accommodating and readily answered our questions not only about her accommodations but the island itself.

The villas are located about a 5 min walk from the main Sairee Beach nightlife. We found this ideal as we were close to all the action when we wanted to be yet far enough away that nights were exceptionally quiet.

The villas were as depicted on her website. The beds were extremely comfortable. The private cooling off pool was definitely a perk. The villas were equipped with two outdoor patio areas and 4 loungers. Ideal for two couples or a small family. The villa is equipped with the kitchen basics. We found the TV satellite options satisfactory. If you are watching too much TV you are not relaxing enough on you vacation. Wifi can be a little patchy at times but that an be attributed to bring higher up the hill.

A mini mart is literally around the corner from the villas for any last minute items. They also do laundry.

If you are not afraid to rent a scooter, this would be ideal as cheaper groceries can be found closer to Mae Haad. We opted to not rent a scooter although Belynda can provide you with recommendations on reliable businesses. We walked every day we were there. It will take approximately 30-35min to Mae Haad and about an hour to Chalok Bay. Traffic can be a little crazy so just be careful.

We cannot speak more highly of Belynda. She was always available to answer our questions. She provides a cellphone to use at no charge. For convenience there are numbers/menus for take out as well as the number for Mr Bear, her contact taxi driver. Belynda will help you make arrangements necessary to make your stay enjoyable. She not only helped us with a ferry booking and transport back to the pier but she also surprised me with a little birthday treat that was left in our fridge! She also introduced us to a couple restaurants we would never have gone to otherwise by taking us there. The types of restaurants that only locals would go to. Our favourite was First Somtum located in Mae Haad.

We would not hesitate to book this place again should we return to Koh Tao!! Although next time we would try and lure another couple to go with us so they could enjoy the beautiful surroundings of KohTao and all that Chalisa Villas have to offer.

After viewing the comments on trip advisor we were not disappointed. From the pick up at the pier to the use of a mobile over the stay, the service was great. The villa itself was really tastefully decorated and spacious. The inclusion of the fruit hamper was also a really nice touch. There had been some confusion when booking as I had thought we were getting breakfast included, but this would be only minor fault. My partner and I really enjoyed having the stocked kitchen, and on a number of occasions bought back street food to eat in the lovely outdoor area. The highlight for me was the gorgeous plunge pool and sun loungers on which I wiled away many hours reading and relaxing. We also really appreciated the visit from the owner Belynda who was incredibly charming (as well as Winne who was really helpful). It's that level of personal touch that makes the difference between a good place and a great place.

We was Greeted by Belinda, who is the most Lovely welcoming host. The location is very near to all of the local restaurants, there are no steep hill's which was quite a relief as Koh Tao is very hilly in places. Entering the Villa first impressions were great, The furniture was of high quality, every thing was immaculately cleaned. The two bedrooms were very spacious. And the kitchen very well equipt. The Best part of discovering our new holiday paIace was the fact they had taken the time to put together a Welcome pack for us which consisted of Breakfast, lunch & dinner take away menus from all the tastiest restaurants. This also had A tourch, Travel plug and varias information on the island, trips and tours. I was very shocked that there was a Medical box in the bathroom as safety is not really thought about much in thailand. I was Traveling with my 12month old baby and I found this villa was child friendly and a high chair was provided as well as a baby cot, with fresh sheets. both in good condition. The Tv was packed full of Tv shows and DvD's on a special hard drive. It was so lovely to have a private pool where no one could over look you. It was so lovely to stay somewhere where people take pride in there business and put so much effort into this. The staff were all lovely too. A Big Big Thankyou XX

Had a fabulous stay at Chalisa Villas. Belynda who welcomed us to our villa could not have been any more accommodating. The villas were in a great location within a close enough distance to walk down to the beach. The villa itself was lovely, very clean and spacious.

Thank you for ending our holiday on a high with your exceptional hospitality

Wow. Don't even know where to start with these villas! My boyfriend and I stayed over night as a treat to ourselves, and everything from the overall presentation and physically appearance of the villa, to the services, delivery menus and even number for a taxi driver (yes, a taxi!) completely blew us away. So much detail and care has been taken to ensure that when you come to stay at Chalisa on vacation, you don't have to put any real work in and can simply enjoy the beautiful place and fact of being on VACATION! I'm so impressed that everything we could possibly need as visitors with no knowledge of the island and area, was all laid out for us to browse through. We could pick a menu and order straight to our villa, choose which beach we wanted to go to with recommendations in a folder and call the taxi number left for us to take us there, we enjoyed the music selection while spending time by the private pool, had a romantic candle lit dinner on the private terrace next to the pool, and even had a great cooking night in the fully equipped kitchen while watching movies from the loaded hard drive! Just amazing, truly happy with our stay and will recommend all family and friends to stay at Chalisa Villas! Thank you!

We stayed here for 6 nights. It was excellent, plenty of room for the 3 of us. The bungalow was cleaned daily ,we were provided with rain coats and snorkelling gear. The staff especially Winnie were very helpful regarding restaurants, where to visit and motorbike hire. We just felt at home there. Would recommend the bungalow as the place to stay.
