We stayed at the 2 bedroomed villa, which was like home from home. Cleaned on a daily basis. The owner was very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble for her. All transfers to and from the Ferry were covered in the price of the accommodation. Location of the villa was superb. A short walk to the nearest shop for local amenities. Also a Laundry near by. A slow 15 minute walk to Sariee beach where all the main restaurants, shops, and nightlife are located. Would highly recommend these villas to all friends and family. This Villa is substantial enough to accommodate a family of four. Will most definitely return again.

I recently stayed at the villa with my husband and our 9 month old daughter. I must say...we got so used to the villa that it felt like home. Many hanks to Belynda who organized our stay smoothly and Nikki, who was waiting at the villa for our arrival was beyond helpful, always there when we needed her. She pretty much had all the answers to our questions of where to go and things we can or can't do with an infant. The villa was fully equipped, we were even provided with a microwaveable baby bottle sterilizer which was absolutely brilliant! The villa and pool were cleaned thoroughly everyday. The bed was very cozy. We had a great selection of movies to watch when it was raining really hard to go out. There was enough menus to order in. Or the kitchen to make a quick meal.

A few steps away from the villa you'll find a small store that has all the main essentials and 100ft away there's a laundry that always had the clothes clean and smelling wonderful for a very cheap price!

The beach, shops and restaurants are a fifteen minute walk from the villa which was convenient for us and the baby.

The wifi wasn't that great, always disconnecting. The only downside for us was no AC in the living room, only in the bedrooms. At the beginning it was a bit difficult to get used to the heat with an infant around, but after few days our bodies adjusted.

All in all, it was a superb getaway away from home that felt like home. We'd definitely recommended this place to all and most likely come back for a second visit soon.

We read the tripadvisor reviews before we made our reservation, so we had high expectations.

when we arrived with the ferry from koh samui a taxidriver was on the mole ready to pick us up, just perfect, it made everything so easy.

at the villa we were met by Nikki, a super serviceminded girl, who spent time showing us the place, and afterwards giving us all her Best tips and advices.

the villa is in great condition, and fully equipped with kitchen, internet etc. Beds are great.

Theres only ac in the bedroom, so it could Be a little hot in the Villa in day times.

at departure nikki manager all our bookings for the trip to Bangkok as well as a free taxi to pick us up and get us safe to the ferry.

on the downside, you really need some kind of transportation since the villa is located a little outside the,city. We rented a scooter at Oli's motorbikes, which gave us complete freedom to explore the entire island.,so would recommend this place,for couples without very young children.

will we come back? For sure!

We really enjoyed our stay in Koh Tao and would stay at the villas again if we return. There is a small store very close where you can buy drinks, snacks, and get laundry done, and everything we needed during our stay was either already provided or quickly taken care of by Nikki when we asked. They even changed when the cleaning service visited to accommodate our schedule.

The villa is beautiful and very clean, with a fridge full of drinks and snacks on arrival, beach towels and snorkel gear provided, and recommendations for lots of activities, places to eat, and locations to visit.

Thanks for a great visit to Koh Tao.

The villa itself is in a great location. Close enough to walk (10 mins) into Sairee and far enough away to not be disturbed by the noise of bars or traffic. There' say little shop just outside to get your essentials and any washing done too.
Standards can often be an issue when staying anywhere in Thailand, but when we arrived the villa itself was spotless throughout with clean fresh towels too. Every bit as well prepared as you would expect from staying at a higher end hotel.
What impressed me most though was the service provided from Belynda and her team. They provided a welcome pack with plenty of tourist info, a mobile all ready programmed with a good, cheap taxi driver who was always reliable and there when needed.
One afternoon we decided we wanted to arrange to go snorkelling. We had already been left two snorkel sets to use for free but needed a third. We didn't ask for one until early in the evening but Belynda organised one for us straight away and it was there by the morning when we got up to go on our trip.
There was always someone there to help with arrangements for trips, cooking classes, taxis or any other help we needed.
I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone and it will be the first place I think of the next time I go to Ko Tao.

The complimentary taxi was waiting for us when we arrived in Koh Tao which is great after you have been travelling for nearly 24 hours. On arrival at the villa we received a warm welcome from Belynda. The 2 – bedroomed villa is spacious and well-equipped (TV and satellite dish + internet). It’s in a peaceful part of Koh Tao yet it is only 10 minutes’ walk from the restaurants, bars and beach of Sairee. The small plunge pool is very refreshing and there is both a mini mart and a laundry conveniently located close by. The villa is cleaned every day. The extra nice touches were the local mobile phone with preloaded numbers for taxis and restaurants and a plentiful supply of information on Koh Tao plus menus from local restaurants that will deliver to the villa. We were also provided with masks and snorkels for our use as the sea around Koh Tao is abundant with fish.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 nights there, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Koh Tao.
A true oasis of tranquility!

A very enjoyable stay at Chalisa Villas for 3 weeks in January…quiet and peaceful yet an easy 5-10 mins walk to the beaches, bars and restaurants in Sairee. Small shop just across the road for everyday items like milk, bread and the all important beers! Was very well looked after by the owner, Belynda, and her team who kept the villa immaculate throughout my stay. Was great to have free use of the mobile during my stay…needed it more than once to call Belynda to organise someone to come and open the front door when I forgot to take the keys out with me! Thanks again Belynda.
